Giveaway, My Next Book, and Frozen Azaleas

HELLO, my Lovelies!

Just a quick post about what I’ve been up to. Let’s get right to the good stuff.

GIVEAWAY FUN

One lucky winner will receive a super special, who-knows-what-will-end-up-inside SWAG and book bag from the RT Booklovers Convention (held in Las Vegas this year) — the largest gathering of romance readers, authors, bloggers, reviewers and industry leaders. Hubby and I are attending, and we’ll snag all the books, pens, pins, postcards, and other fun items that we can.

Winner announced on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 6 p.m. Eastern.
ENTER HERE for this once-a-year giveaway. 

Last year’s loot:RT swag

Planning on attending RT? I’d love to say hello. (Hint: I’ll likely be closer to the bar than the slot machines.)

Congratulations to Maria B. who won March’s giveaway — a  special swag pack from Wild Wicked Weekend, another fun event. (My recap of this most wickedly fun event at LadySmut can be read here.)

OTHER FUN

Did you read my guest blog post on why I think learning to lapdance is a feminist act?  Thanks to Kate Allure’s Sizzling Romance blog for hosting me. (Did you know I teach dance, too? It’s never too late to move it, move it, move it.) Check out my aerial arts and burlesque Pinterest board for those lovers of these dance forms.

SPEAKING OF PINTEREST BOARDS

PERFECT, the third Elite Doms of Washington book, is coming to you in late spring — if all goes according to plan. The manuscript is being edited as I type. In the meantime, want to visit my Pinterest inspiration boards for the characters, which can be found here (Mark) and here (Isabella)

Sometimes the perfect man is the one most forbidden. 

For ten years, Isabella Santos denied she married the wrong man. After her husband’s death, fate gives her one more chance to connect with her perfect Master—Mark Santos, the brother of her late husband.

HAPPY SPRING!

My azaleas, which are valiantly trying to stay alive as the nighttime temps dip into the 30s (after being in the 60s).

You can do it. Keep going! Keep going!
