My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop is hosted by Reading Between the Wines Book Club & As the Pages Turn Giveaway. The hop will run from 12:01 AM February 1st through to 11:59 PM February 5th, 2012.
What better way to celebrate the month of LOVE than with your favorite book boyfriend? Whether you have a valentine or not, the swoon worthy heroes we find in romances can’t be matched anyway! So why not put on those naughty underwear and curl up with one of these steamy reads this year instead? Make your Valentine’s Day perfect by joining the My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop where fellow bloggers offer you the chance to win some of their favorite book boyfriends!
So, who are my book boyfriends? When I think of all the books I’ve read over the years, and we’re talking over 15 years of romance reading, it’s so hard to narrow it down. There are just so many to choose from. However, those who first come to mind:
Jack from Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas
Lord John Blackwood from Dancing At Midnight by Julia Quinn
Morgan MacDonnell from Whisper of Roses by Teresa Medeiros
Dermott Ramsey, Earl of Bathurst from Temporary Mistress by Susan Johnson
Earl of Wick from Her Lord and Master by Thea Devine
Jeremy Gray from Comfort Object by Annabel Joseph
Zsadist from Lover Awakened by JR Ward
All of the Cowboys that Delilah Devlin writes… 😉
These are just a few and I couldn’t begin to go back and list all of my favorites. We’d be here all day. In lists like these, I always feel as though I’m missing someone important… 😉 Which, they all are, yes?
In other words… I. Want. Them. All.
As for what I’m going to be giving away:
1 $15 Gift Card to Amazon.com and one copy of any of my backlist. (US Only)
1 $10 Gift Card to BarnesAndNoble.com and an ebook copy of any ebook of your choice (up to $10) (US Only)
1 $10 Gift Card to Starbuck (US Only)

So, I’m a little late. What else is new? My day yesterday got all messed up once I found out my son’s rec league play-off game was changed to last night from tonight. It totally screwed up the flow of things on my end and by the time we got home last night, I was so frustrated and tired and bummed that they lost the game, I simply went to bed.
This morning, I worked on the blurb, went through another round of formatting and last minute checking of things with Unmasked. It’s been uploaded to Smashwords, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. We are now in the waiting stages for it to be live and available for purchase. I have set up accounts with All Romance eBooks and Bookstrand to be able to publish there as well. I am waiting to hear back on account approval.
As I said yesterday, I will let you know as soon as it is ready for your Nooks and Kindles and iPads and Androids and PC’s.
I will be in the writing corner this weekend working on the third book, Revealed. It will be published November 10-11. During NaNoWriMo I will be finishing up Trouble in the Making (the cover is in the works) and the next race car book as I know many of you are anxious for it!
For now, though, it’s wait unfortunately…
With his mask secured in place, Bobby enters Abyss with a single purpose, a single desire. Thor. It’s been a busy week and he’s so anxious to see the dominant again, he doesn’t even take the time to head home and change into more appropriate fetish club attire. He hasn’t been able to shake the lust and memories of how it felt to be under Thor’s hands, to surrender to his need for a man, for Thor, and it drives Bobby to the one thing, the one place he knows he can find fulfillment.
Thor doesn’t flog men, at least not in public, but the undeniable attraction and need he feels the moment he spots Bobby, dressed more for a business meeting than a night out with lifestylers, compels him to make an exception that will change everything he’s known and everything everyone has thought about him.
Nervous and stripped of his shirt, Bobby is strapped to a St. Andrews Cross, surrendering to the pleasure that is Thor with a flogger. Thor’s whispered words of need and encouragement strengthen Bobby’s resolve that tonight is the night he must remove the mask and reveal his identity, that tonight he must reveal his longing for more than one night, once a week club meetings.
Will Thor still want him? There’s only one way to find out…
Hey y’all! I’ve spent the better part of yesterday finishing up revisions, cleaning the manuscript, and formatting Unmasked for uploading and release this weekend. I will spend the better of today perfecting everything as best I can and finishing up the blurb writing, and beginning the upload process.
You will hopefully have Unmasked by Friday night from Amazon and over the weekend from Barnes and Noble, depending on how long they take.
Over the weekend I will be working on the third installment, titled Revealed, of this short story series. It’s going to be a writing all weekend kind of thing. Next week, NaNoWriMo starts and I will be joining in again this year. I will be plotting my story (stories) come Monday so when Tuesday gets here I can jump right into writing. I hope to finish at least one 50K book and one smaller story by the end of November.
Why they chose November to do NaNoWriMo, I have no idea considering there’s a major holiday at the end and that’s when I’m usually pulling my hair out. Of course, I know not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving, but it’s my own personal gripe so sue me…
I’ll keep you updated on when Unmasked is available and where over the weekend but otherwise I’ll be in the writing corner with coffee… lots and lots of coffee!
I spent a lot of time revising Masked, formatting it. I’ll be spending just as much time on Unmasked for it’s release next weekend. In the meantime, though, I am writing. I am finishing up Trouble in the Making and the 3rd story which will follow Unmasked. This will free up November for me to finish the 2nd race car book, Drive Shaft. It’s been my goal to get it finished by the time NASCAR season was done and well, both will be done by end of November. It is my NaNoWriMo project.
Also in book news, I have decided to self-publish the 3rd Blue Jeans and Hard Hats book. I have let Samhain know this so now I’m letting you, my readers know it. Basically, I wanted to be able to have a release date before late Summer 2012 and we simply couldn’t get it worked out that way. I am aiming for a February release for it. I hope y’all are looking forward to Blue’s story as much as I *finally* enjoyed writing it. It was a hard-fought book, but I am pleased with it.
For those who have purchased Masked, thank you. For those who haven’t, yet. Why not? It’s a really hot little number…grins. Remember, you can find it at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and Smashwords. I’ll be uploading both Masked and Unmasked to All Romance eBooks next week.
Have a great one y’all! I’m off for more coffee and to get back to writing…
