So, I was out at Angela Knight’s loop the other day and someone had posted a series of shots of this guy at a Dolce & Gabbana fashion show.
I had to stop and closely examine each one. Finally, a model with a body that doesn’t look he’s been “cutting” his abs with heroine or cocaine. I love his build, love the tatts, love the jaw and his “give-a-shit” expression. I’m going to have to paste his picture to my future projects book and see what I can work up with him in mind.
Any ideas what kind of character you’d like to see him be? Of course, lets add about 10 years and few character lines around his mouth and eyes. Maybe, in my mind, I’ll shave him bald and add a piercing or two. Mmmm-mmm. ~DD
…Dial 555-HEAT It’s The Hot Line, an on-call service that dispatches totally authentic, fully equipped firemen to explore the secret fantasies of women in need. What an irresistible dare for three best friends feeling the heat…
Reporter Sara Jack has the Fever to do a story on The Hot Line. There’s no better man to help with research than Mitch Adams. The solid stud is all pro, but in Sara he’s met a woman willing to fulfill one of his fantasies—if they’re ready to accept what comes next.
The Siren has sounded and shy lingerie designer Jenna Powers is finally ready for a real man to tamp her desires, break through her inhibitions, and show her the naughty side of love. Enter Dean Beckman—again and again.
For sous chef Megan Wagner, a Flash Fire has the sparks to change her life—especially with someone like Brady Wade to put it out. In and out of uniform, he’s driving her wild, but her fear of commitment could drive him away…
The Hot Line should come with a warning. The chemistry between these three couples is hotter than a three-alarm fire, so make sure to have a cold glass of water near you, or a fire extinguisher if you burst into flames! It’ll have women everywhere searching their local communities for Hot Lines of their own. ~ Fallen Angel Reviews, 5 Angels
The friendships between all the characters added to the richness of the stories and the sensuality level was off the charts! All in all this is an excellent book. ~ The Romance Studio 5 Hearts
Could anything be hotter than a hunky fireman head over heels in love? Yep. How about THREE hunky firemen head over heels in love?? Cathryn Fox delivers the goods in her novel The Hot Line, releasing March 4, 2008. This collection of sensual romances revolving around a firehouse in Chicago is just the thing to usher in the warmer months this spring! ~ Kwips and Kritiques 5 Clovers
The Hot Line is a super-sexually charged erotic romance featuring a trio of couples…Fox’s use of simple language and short sentences makes her latest hot-and-heavy tales urgent and effective. As readers experience the lovemaking both public and private as well as the pole dancing, spanking and the lingerie fatalities, hearts will race and brows will rise.” ~ RT magazine 4 Stars
Today, my book starts shipping from the online bookstores, and I’m hoping the brick & mortar stores already have them ready to stock on the shelves.
I can’t wait to hear from all of you once you’ve had a chance to read it. Let me know what you like, what I could have done better, and most importantly, what you’d like me to do with the series in the future!
In the meantime, I’m blogging with Fresh Fiction today. I hope you’ll drop by and say hello! Now that the day is here, I’m hoping my excitement will die down so I can write some serious pages. I still have another chapter of MIK-7 to wrap up or certain readers will come looking for me!
Can you tell I’m excited? Well, at long last, the countdown has reached its end. I do hope you will continue to pop in and check out my blog. I’ve really enjoyed the company.
What you really want to know about is who won the last prize, right? I had hoped to give away a signed copy of my book, but alas, I haven’t gotten my box of author copies from Avon. So instead, I’ll be sending the winner a $20.00 Amazon.com gift certificate and a .pdf file Advanced Reader’s Copy of SEDUCED BY DARKNESS. She won’t be able to caress it with her own hands, but she will get to read it before anybody else! But more about that later…
There are some other things happening in the coming week I think you will enjoy.
**Tomorrow, I’ll be blogging at Fresh Fiction. Be sure to stop by and say hello!
**Friday, February 29th, at 10:00 CST, I’ll be chatting live with Melissa Alvarez. So, if you have any burning questions or are just curious whether I sound anything like you imagined, please tune in. Here’s the URL so you can find me! BlogTalk Radio
**And lastly, I’m putting the finishing touches on the last pages of Chapter 5 of MIK-7:Knight Dreams and will be sending it out shortly along with my newsletter. Make sure you are signed up to get the lastest installment!
The winner of the gift certificate and the ARC of SEDUCED BY DARKNESS is…Karen H! Karen, send me the email addy where you would like your prizes shipped–congratulations!
Okay, so it’s one day and some more hours to go, and it actually comes out on Tuesday, but we’re almost there! Maybe someone’s actually already found SEDUCED BY DARKNESS in their local bookstore. I’d love to see a picture of it on the shelf if you do find it!
I think I’ve made my case. It wasn’t a carefully constructed argument, but was a passionate one. Which of the reasons actually swayed you? If you’ve forgotten or didn’t read a few of them, go back through the days and look. It’s your time to tell me the most compelling reasons why you’re tempted to buy it!
In the meantime, I do have another prize to award–a $20.00 gift certificate from Amazon.com and the reader’s choice of INTO THE DARKNESS, WILD, WILD WOMEN OF THE WEST or two of my ebook titles, along with whatever cover flats, EC playing cards, and bookmarks I can find.
And the prize goes to…Phyllis Crabtree! Phyllis, send me an email to arrange delivery of your gifts.
We have one more day of the countdown left. Be sure to post to qualify for the last prize pack. This week I have several events planned to celebrate, but I’ll let you know about them tomorrow. Thanks again, for joining me! ~DD
“The electrifying follow-up to Into the Darkness is a breathless read. Devlin’s intricate vampire society is filled with compelling personalities. The chemistry between the characters is explosive, and the horrific villain will give you goosebumps…and the ending will leave you begging for more…”
