Guest Author - Mary Wehr!

Mary Wehr has a brand spankin' new release!  Check it out!


To Have and To Scold by Mary Wehr

Blurb:

Annie’s sweet on her neighbor, Matthew Caine, but the stern rancher treats her like a bratty child instead of a woman. Each encounter always ends with a trip over his knee.
Matthew’s fed up with Annie’s childish behavior. Her latest prank ruined a brand new pair of boots! While he sets her britches on fire, he refers to her as a nuisance and warns her to leave him alone. For once in her life, Annie obeys.

‘Bratty’ Annie has grown into a beautiful woman and Matthew realizes that he’s fallen in love with her, but she’s unsure of his feelings. When he learns about her stepmother’s evil plan to marry her off to a man Annie despises in order to settle a debt, he steps in and takes her to wife.

Annie’s happy to be married to the man of her dreams and learns that no matter what her age, her disobedience and sass will be dealt with an old-fashioned spanking.

Excerpt:

Matt slipped his arms around Annie's waist and she jumped in surprise, nearly dropping the plate she held in her hands. "Matthew Caine, how many times have I told you not to sneak up on me like that? I can barely hear you without your boots on."

He nipped her earlobe. "Okay, I'll wear them inside from now on and wash up in the sink instead of outside." He swatted her on the behind and she stomped her foot.

"Go ahead and see how fast you get hit on the head with the broom. I'll not have you dragging dirt into my clean house." She set down the dish and skedaddled to the other side of the table and giggled. "Of course, I could always fill your boots with horse shit again. Your bellow sure shook the house that day."

Matt narrowed his eyes. "And someone sure got their fanny paddled, didn't they, bratty
Annie?"

"You know how much I hate it when you call me Bratty Annie," she accused him hotly.

"Yep, I do." Damn, it was hard to keep a straight face when she got her bloomers in a twist. He loved her temper, well, most of the time. Matt moved nonchalantly to the spot she had vacated and she zipped to the other side of the table. He upped his pace and the race was on.

They circled the table, each eyeing the other warily, then came to a stop.

Annie pouted. "You called me that on purpose, didn't you?"

"Yep."

"Is that all you have to say is 'yep'?"

Matt opened his mouth to say 'yep' again, but her scowl warned him not to push it. She was spitting mad and his cock swelled in his pants. It had been too long since he had given his beautiful wife's curvy backside a paddling while she was in a stew and it was about time he remedied that situation. Tired of the game, he feigned to the right and she bolted straight for the stairs, exactly where he wanted her to go. He caught her easily around the waist and plopped himself down on the bottom step. He flipped her skirts over her head and reached under her belly to loosen the ribbon on her bloomers.

"You're nothing but a bully, Matthew Caine," she spat, her voice muffled from beneath her skirts. She arched her back in an effort to throw herself from his lap, exposing her most intimate parts to his heated gaze.

Matt's mouth grew dry. She was all pink and glistening wet. Anxious to get his mouth on her, he gave her a few half hearted whacks and carried her upstairs for a little afternoon delight.

It's Been A Wild 6 Years!


I love what I do. For the most part, being a writer is a lonely process spent holed up somewhere in sweats, no makeup, and a sports bra. My apologies if that isn't the "glamorous" life, but it's the truth. You know what, though? I was recently looking through my pics, and there absolutely is another side to the writing life! I do things now that I never dreamed I'd be doing. (Just ask my research assistant, Stud!)


Here are my faves:
1st Book Published!
1st Book in Print at BandN!
Caveman on Print Cover!


Book Signings!

Events!


Dressing Up!
Dressing Up!
And Dressing Up!

1st Hooker Shoes!
1st Time to Strip Club!













Sex Position Gumby!
(Don't hate me!)
Friends in the Bahamas!
Amazing Moments: Gifts from fans! Blew me away!


And Cavemen, Cavemen, Cavemen!











It's been a wild ride that I hope to continue. The best moment of all is when a reader lets me know they loved my books. There’s no other feeling like it to know that something I created - yes, usually alone and in my sweats - struck a chord with someone else. Thank you for making it possible for me to do what I love.

Welcome Laura Simcox










I had the great opportunity to meet fellow Seymour Agency author Laura Simcox at the RT Convention and was super excited to learn that she also writes Spicy and Southern like me! Laura has a brand new release so let's welcome her to NAC!  ~ Casey Crow


******


Hey there, Naughty Author Chicks!

I’m thrilled to be hanging out with you today, and I’m here to share my latest release.

VARIOUS STATES OF UNDRESS: CAROLINA released May 27 and it’s the first in an Avon Impulse contemporary romance series about daughters of the president. The series tells the stories of Carolina, Virginia and Georgia. Their day may run the country, but he can’t run them! The books are sweet and funny, but also sexy. Just ask Carolina, who finds herself trapped by a blizzard in a cozy cabin…with her smokin’ hot Secret Service agent, Jake. The blurb goes like this:

What happens when the president's daughter and her sexy Secret Service agent find themselves snowbound? A little cabin fever, some serious forbidden attraction, and Various States of Undress …

When Carolina Fulton, daughter of the President of the United States, dumps her cheating fiancĂ©, she knows she needs a break from life in Washington. Spending some quality alone time in her family's Wyoming cabin seems like a perfect escape—except for the hot Secret Service agent who shadows her every move. Miles away from civilization, Carolina quickly realizes that ignoring the smoky eyes, carved chin, and mile-wide pair of shoulders is going to require more than a little self-control.

Elite agent Jake Baxter knows better than to develop feelings for his clients. After all, he's not being paid to fantasize about running his fingers through Carolina's dark hair, kissing her senseless, or waking up next to her petite, curvy body. But as a blizzard rages outside their all-too-cozy cabin, Jake knows he has to put the freeze on this attraction, in case his job—or his heart—is suddenly laid on the line.

 

And here’s a little excerpt:

“What do we do now?” she asked, knowing it was an invitation.
And not caring. The door was locked. The alarm was on. No eyes were prying and
no cameras were flashing. Nobody was judging her, and she felt safe. Safe from
everything, except herself—but she could handle herself. Being competent was
her signature character trait.

“We shouldn’t,” he said.

She leaned forward and slid her fingers down his arms until she
clasped his warm hands. “I’m so aware of that fact, it’s painful.” She tipped
her head back. “But right now, I don’t care.” Rising up, she loosened her
fingers, wrapped her arms around his strong neck and pulled him toward her.
“Okay?”

His hands moved to splay around her ribcage. “No. It’s not
okay.” Then he lifted her up until her breasts were nestled against his chest.
And his mouth descended on hers, sending tendrils of fire racing through her
middle. As her eyes slid shut, she had the strangest feeling that she was
sinking. And she didn’t want it to stop.

 

What do you think? Did they…get naughty? J All I can say is that writing this book was a lot of steamy fun! I just turned in edits on book two, Virginia’s story, which is set in NYC and will release in October. Georgia’s story, set in Memphis, will release in January. I haven’t confused myself with all of the states….yet! The key thing I have to remember? The word UNDRESS.

Thanks for having me today, and happy reading and writing to you all. Come look me up on the corner of Facebook Avenue and Twitter Boulevard. I’ll be there! You can find my info at http://www.laurasimcox.com

Happy Friday!

Laura

Come fly with me...on RWA's app Novel Engagement:

So where in the world do you want to fly?
Paris or Rome or Venice's Bridge of Sighs

How 'bout the mythical land of Oz
I imagine that will give you pause

At your own lovely pace, fast or slow

Browsing the romance novels in my sanctuary

Now I have my smartphone to take a look
At every wonderful author, every great book

Dust off your ruby slippers and get that new app, oh my!
That lets you choose where in the world you want to fly

And check out your seatmate
Or should I say romantic date

He'll sweep you off your feet
Without ever leaving your seat

So turn on your smartphone and get the app in the know
Download Novel Engagement and away you go!

Remember when no one had ever heard of an ebook?

What an exciting time for authors. I had my first book release 10 years ago. Holy cow! It never occurred to me that it had been that long until...well, now! My first several books were erotic romance ebooks, released by an e-publisher. Starting out that way was very helpful. I learned a lot about playing well with others--and not because I always did.

By 2007 I had moved up to a small press, which was also the largest e-publisher in the world. It may still be...I'm not sure. Ellora's Cave gave me my first print books. I learned a lot from them too. My first book signings were exciting. I learned that signing with groups--or at least one buddy was much more fun than sitting by my lonesome. I met one of my dearest friends at one of those signings. You can read about our story on our yahoo group, if you're curious. We have loads of fun there, so don't hesitate to join in! https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ashlynsnewbestfriends/info

Next milestone was to receive a contract from a traditional publisher and see my books in Barnes and Nobel, etc. By now the Kindle had been invented and book signings were beginning to decline. However, ebook sales were getting better and better. I reached a whole new audience with those mass market paperbacks and many of them downloaded more of my books when they started using an ereader.

Now I'm moving into Indie or self-publishing. It's a bit scary for me, because I am SO not a business woman. But I've been inspired by lots of authors who are doing it. My first Indie came out in May. Pardon me while I give it a shout out. The Cupcake Coven can be found at all the major places books are sold, and as far as I know, it's the only book of that title, so you can plug the name into a search engine and it should appear. It looks like this:

I went to New Orleans to the RT conference. I had a great time, and I learned a lot more--not from the workshops. I didn't actually go to any. I just listened to my roommate. Terry Spear has been at this longer than I have. She's a USA Today best seller and she knows her stuff.
So, there it is. My journey--so far. What new milestone am I shooting for? I still want to see my books in a grocery store. That means becoming a best seller. I hope you'll tell me if you spot one of my books in your supermarket!

The Romance Saga Part 1

By: Casey Crow


Although school is out, my daughter likes to remind me she'll be in middle school next year. The horror! Not because I fear for her as sixth grade was the worst year of my life (mean girls galore!), but sixth grade means I'm officially old. As we were discussing the subject, I was thankful to learn that boys are still "yucky". Whew! But when the time comes, my daughter (aka 11) has informed she already knows all there is know about boys.

According to 11:



1. You do not simply announce you like a boy. You let him know with eye contact that lingers a little too long.

Hmmm...dido for the Old Lady view.



2. You know a boy likes you when he stares back.
Agree.



3. A boy also likes you if he is mean to you.
Following an extensive Q&A, Old Lady learned at "mean" means he teases you, which is the equivalent of flirting for adults. As a side note, I took great pains to clarify that boys should never be "mean mean" to girls.

 4. Boys like it when girls are "mean" back.
True, flirting isn't fun if it's not reciprocated.



5. Boys like girls in bikinis.
I'm not kidding, my child spoke those words and however true they may be I'm a little worried now!


The saga shall continue as information becomes available, but get this - 11 tells me, "I thought I knew a lot about romance, but I just don't get it."
Neither do I sweet girl, but that's the beauty of it.

The Red Bra




You've heard of the Red Shoes -- now there's The Red Bra!
 
=================

The Red Bra

a poem by Jina Bacarr

==============
 
Intrigued am I by underwear

A subject we don’t often dare

To discuss

But we make such a fuss

About what goes under our baby tees

It’s a form of modern striptease

We wiggle and shake, squeeze and tug

Hoping our lover will not shrug

But search for his prize

Under our T-shirt disguise

What will he find to please his eye?

And makes us giggle, laugh, and sigh?

A lacy bra so pretty and red

And then it’s off we go eagerly to bed

No losers here when all is said and done

It’s a game we play and so much fun!

Best,
Jina

I love www.dreamstime.com for photos -- do you like my idea of taking a sexy photo and then writing a poem about it?

Let me know what you think!

Christmas in June

My erotic Christmas fantasy, Yuletide Enchantment, is free for one more week from Ellora's Cave. Get your copy here, before it's gone!

Why is a Christmas story free in June? Because it's book one of a series (Holiday Hearts) and EC is doing a first-in-series promo. If you like Yuletide, they're hoping you'll buy the others.

Here's the premise of the series: The Holiday family, which owns a greeting card business, is descended from the Celtic gods who oversaw different points on the calendar. To this day, each of the children is born on a holiday--either modern or Celtic, and it's that holiday magic that will ultimately lead them to their love--if they're smart enough to go for it when it happens. Each of the five Holiday siblings have their own challenges and their own brand of magic, so none of them knows what to expect when it happens to them. Here's the order:

#1 Yuletide Enchantment: The company Christmas party goes awry in an erotic way when quiet accountant Shelby Carter is magically whisked into a miniature Victorian village with the boss’s gorgeous son, Noel Holiday. Noel has always honored the policy against fraternization, but when he’s trapped for several days with sweet, sexy Shelby, he decides it’s time to start breaking the rules.

#2 Like Bunnies: Star Holiday never paid much attention to her father’s claims that their family was descended from the Celtic spirits of the seasons—and she certainly never expected to turn into a rabbit every time she stepped foot outside her family’s cabin on the weekend of the spring equinox. Now all she can do is stay holed up with her sexy-as-sin ex-boyfriend, Theo Morgan, until the magic goes away.

#3 Valentine's Heart: Valentine Holiday loves being single. As the youngest member of the Holiday family, he’s in no hurry for the family magic to catch up with him and find him the love of his life. Right before Valentine’s Day, he begins getting emails from a dating site he never signed up for. He’s sure it’s just a hoax—until he meets Corazon Lopez.

#4 Midsummer Dreams: Matt Warren has always been the man of Summer’s dreams. He was her childhood imaginary playmate, her teen crush, and the wildly sexy fantasy lover of her adulthood. She’s always known he wasn’t real, but after experiencing his imaginative, passionate touch, no real man has ever measured up. However, alone on a beach shortly before her birthday, Summer discovers that the Holiday family magic hasn’t left her behind. Matt is real, standing on her beach, and he’s there to make Summer his in every way possible.
 
#5 All Hallow's Evie:  When Sam Holiday moves into his Victorian home the week before his thirty-fifth birthday, the last thing he expects is to find a ghost in residence. Especially a horny one. Evie Bonnell has been hanging around since her death in 1916 because she has unfinished business. She died before experiencing sex. She’s learned a lot over the years and has decided single, handsome Sam is the right man to do the job.



 Happy holidays, all year long!
