European Vacation!

I’ll also add you to my newsletter for updates on all the fun stuff and releases, too. I’ll announce the winner on Labor Day, September 7th! (Oh my GOD!, where has the summer gone!? I know I said that last time, but I have to say it again.) Good luck!

Okay, so about the European Vacation. It’s not mine. It’s my husband’s. He’s leaving today for a three-week trip to Germany and Norway. He’s going with an old friend of his that he’s known since grade school. They’ll be visiting his friend's relatives in Germany and hubby’s relatives in Norway (he’s a Viking God, remember!). They’ve been planning this trip forever! But I never really considered that I’d be all alone for three weeks! I’ll get to watch all the chick flicks sitting in my Netflix queue and the third season of Dexter (he doesn’t like the serial killer movies). I can eat brussel sprouts and edamame and chicken livers and lamb kabobs. I can watch endless reruns of CSI. I can lay in his spot on the sofa and eat his half of the popcorn as well as my own. The kitchen table will stay clean. I won’t have do to any ironing! This will be all such fun! For about four days. Then I’ll remember that there’s no one to share my mocha with in the morning (he makes my mocha for me!). No one to talk with or snuggle up to in bed at night just before I go to sleep (except our dog Star but she snores). No one to appreciate my cooking or to kiss me goodbye when he leaves for work. No one to call me on his lunch break or when before he leaves on his hour-long drive home. No reason to look forward to five o’clock. There’s all these little rituals we have, dinner, the TV shows we watch together, the talks we have about the day. When someone is there, you take all those things for granted. But when they’re gone, you realize how much you rely on those rituals, look forward to them. BTW, Star is going to miss him a lot, too. Because Dad is the one who gives her all the treats. When Dad goes into the kitchen, Star jumps up to follow. When Mom goes to the kitchen, Star doesn’t even open her eyes! Suddenly three weeks seems like a very, very long time for both Star and me!

So what rituals do you have, whether you do them yourself or share them with someone else?

Jasmine, Jennifer and JB!

Laced with Desire Cover

Congratulations to Susan Chaballa! You are the winner of Jordan Dane’s No One Heard Her Scream. I’ll be contacting you for your snail mail address or you can email me at skully @ skullybuzz dot com. Thanks also to Rosemary Gunn for stopping by and talking about her new book Open Proposal.

Next up, I have Black Out by Annie Solomon. To be eligible for the drawing, you must type in your email address. I’ll also add you to my newsletter for updates on all the fun stuff and releases, too. I’ll announce the winner on the August 24th blog! (Oh my GOD!, where has the summer gone!?) Good luck!

I’m so excited to be able to show you the cover for the next anthology in the “Unlaced” series. In fact, I’m debuting the cover here for you before I even put it up on the web site! I loved the classy pink cover for Unlaced, and this one is very hot and sexy, too. Laced with Desire will be out in February 2010. I love writing with these ladies, they’re so great. Here’s a little rundown on our stories!

Jaci Burton breaks the rule of mixing business with pleasure when two professional rivals cross paths at a tropical resort. She figures she can handle a fling with no strings attached. He’s out to show her that she figured wrong.

Jasmine Haynes explores the lust of a former supermodel who needs to finally fulfill a no-holds-barred sexual fantasy. Finding two men to do it with is easy. But are they up to giving her all the pleasure she’s been denied?

Joey W. Hill reveals the erotic bond between a master and the beautiful submissive who stole his heart. Recapturing their night of unparalleled passion won’t be easy—until a specific piece of lingerie comes into play.

Denise Rossetti goes beyond the limits of desire when she pairs a battle-scarred vet of love and war with a woman who’s just as fearless and twice as dangerous. What happens between them is positively combustible. But what a way to go.

My story is called La Petite Mort. LOL, does everyone know what that means?

BTW, you can preorder Laced with Desire on Amazon! And it’s 32% off the cover price!

Jasmine, Jennifer and JB!

Open Proposal by Rosemary Gunn

Hi, all.
I have a very special guest today, Rosemary Gunn. I had the honor of reading Open Proposal in its infancy, and it’s a fun, sexy wonderful erotic romance. Now Rosemary is working today so I’m not sure when she’ll be able to pop in, but I’m leaving her blog up all week for you to enjoy. Congratulations on the release, Rosemary, and many happy sales!!!
PS I love that Rosemary calls me Jas!

And Rosemary speaks!

Good morning! Before sharing my story, let me say a huge thank you to my wonderful friend for inviting me to participate in my first guest blog: Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Jas, you’re the best!

Now, on to the reason I’m blogging here today: the release of my very first book!! Open Proposal is available today at! Isn’t that cover amazing? Thanks to April Martinez for creating such a memorable work of art to illustrate the three characters of this story. All that luscious flesh…mmm, yumma!

Here’s the thing. Like many others, I’ve been writing a long time. Unfortunately, most of the stories never actually made it to The End. Last year my best friend said, “I don’t think you’re ever going to finish writing something that I can read.” That’s right. My best friend had issued a challenge. What else could I do? I stepped up and met that challenge. Less than three weeks later, the first draft of Open Proposal was in her hands.

The funny thing is, when I first started writing it, there weren’t three people involved. It was simply going to be the story of a woman (Samantha) deciding to have a hot affair with a male colleague…sort of a wham-bam thing. Then Eve knocked on the door, and the entire story changed. That’s usually how it works. I fell in love with all three of these beautiful people and certainly hope you will, too.

This is the back cover blurb. It’s an eBook though, so technically there isn’t a back cover:

Samantha and Eve have it all: a beautiful home, successful careers, and a loving relationship. When the use of a sex toy brings Sam's latent desires to the forefront, the women decide to find someone who can give Sam the one thing that Eve cannot.

Roman--Eve’s best friend from childhood--is surprised by their unusual request, but agrees to play anyway. Eve has always been able to count on Roman to be there when she needed him.

What she hadn’t counted on were her own feelings regarding him. Will an open proposal mark the end of a friendship or the beginning of something more than any of them could have anticipated?

Looking forward to chatting with everyone today and will be popping in and out. Be sure to check out my website and also become a follower on my blog
