Baldur, grandson of the Norse god Thor, woke up one morning certain that each and every plant and animal on earth wanted to kill him. His mother consoled him. His wife consoled him, but all to no avail. As Baldur cowered in his room, half-wild with fear, his mother and wife decided to ask every living thing to leave their poor Baldur in peace. They begged the kindness of the oak tree, the pig, the cow, the crow, the ant and even the worm. Each agreed. Then, as Baldur paused to celebrate his releas

Black Friday Blog Hop and lots of giveaways !!!

Welcome to the Black Friday Blog Hop with the Authors from Decadent Publishing!   I am very proud to be among these awesome authors with my new release...   Take Me Home, Cowboy   Ally Kincaid returns to Freewill, Wyoming, to see her father after a two year absence. Anticipating a quiet family reunion, she finds herself butting heads with her father’s foreman instead. The man’s arrogance and sexy drawl push all her buttons, making her wonder what he’s hiding beneath his cowboy swagger. Matt Gentry walked away from the past and shies from the future. No ties means no one gets hurt…until the boss’s daughter, a hot, green-eyed blonde, tempts him to break his own rules. When tragedy strikes, will building tension and pride destroy their growing attraction or show them the way home?   Excerpt: “I need to buy that man an answering machine.” Furious, Ally held the receiver away from her ear, eyes closed as the phone on the other end rang continuously. “Co

A Hoppin Howloween blog hop....

  Welcome to the Howloween Blog Hop sponsored by The Blog Hop Spot       I LOVE Halloween, how bout you??     When I was a kid, I never wanted to give up the fight when my parents suggested I might just be too old to trick-or-treat and I can't even remember now when that age really was but I sure hope my own kids will keep up that same fight and I don't think i'll make them stop til they're ready.  My 13 year old I think is starting to consider she might be getting too old but then the next day she's talking about what costume she'd like to wear so who knows...     As I got older, I did realize that I didn't need the embarrasment of dressing in a costume anymore and that I loved going to anything haunted even though it scared the daylights outta me :)  Since I have kids as young as 6 and no way are they doing anything scary, I don't get an opportunity to do the scary adult stuff right now.   Much to my dismay I'm stuck in

Alpha Males...my favorite :)

Have you ever been asked what you like about Alpha Males?  Well I never had before but when I think about it, the Alpha Male is always the one that draws me in when I read a great book.    He's just got this unbelievable presence he exudes, one that makes you stop and take notice.   He makes me want to be the heroine just so I can have him :)  He doesn't give a sh** what others think of him and that makes him even more attractive.  He's always confident and sure about himself but even if he's got doubts, you'll never know about them.  He takes charge in every aspect of his life, dominates.  Of course the gorgeous and sexy part isn't a bad thing either.  So what exactly do you like about an Alpha male??    Well today i'd love for you to leave me a comment telling me what you like, what makes you pick the Alpha every time.  And, if you'd rather have the Beta, well tell me about that too!  Dont' forget to leave your email address in case you win!
