Evernight’s Holiday Hangover Blog Hop @evernightpub #NewYear #hangover


Happy New Year from Evernight!

Now that the Christmas cookies are gone, gifts unwrapped, and your holiday visitors have left, you’ve earned some well-deserved TLC. Evernight authors not only have the cure for your holiday hangover, they have fantastic new books for your 2015 reading list, too!

Be sure to visit every stop on the hop and answer each question. The more you blogs you hop, the more chances to win the GRAND PRIZE of an iPad Mini sponsored by Evernight Publishing (one entry per blog). Plus, hop each blog for a host of other fabulous prizes.

So sink into your favorite chair and enjoy your holiday hangover!

We all know that there is no perfect cure for a hangover. There are ways to ensure that you don’t get a bad hangover, like not drinking excessively, lining your stomach with a good meal and drinking at least a pint of water before you go to sleep. Then there is a wide variety of medication that you can take the next day to relieve the symptoms of your hangover and you can also drink lots of fluids, try to eat (not always easy) and raise your blood sugar with a sweet drink like cola. But arguably the best thing for you is to take it easy, get lots of rest, sleep if you need it and flush your body out with water and juice.
While you’re resting (because you deserve it, of course) why not grab a good book and take your mind off how rough you’re feeling? Try this cunning method of distraction and let me know how you get on. If you indulge yourself with one or more of Evernight’s erotic reads, you’ll probably find that you feel hot for different reasons altogether!

Thanks to all the lovely readers who visited my blog as part of the Evernight Publishing Birthday Celebrations Blog Hop.

This was my question:


I loved reading all of your comments and it was difficult to decide which one I liked the most. I ended up torn between two:

I am a ranch hand in the barn. Someone comes in the barn. At first I don’t realize that I have company, but he suddenly presses his body against mine. He whispers in my ear and I recognize his voice. I have been lusting after the owner of the ranch since I started working there. He first blindfolded me, slowly takes of my clothing, ties my hands behind my back and caresses my body. He kisses my neck and slowly moves lower down my body.

I guess you can see where this is going………

from ‘Kyra Tinker’

and this one:

I would love to be in a barn where a sexy, drop dead gorgeous cowboy comes in after working the ranch all day. His body is rippled with muscles, he comes toward me asking me what I’m doing at his ranch when I tell him I wanted to see the animals.. He pushes me up against the stall and says you want to see an animal I’ll show you and animal as he rips my shirt open buttons flying everywhere. Well I’m pretty sure you can tell what happens next. LOL . I did enjoy this book, so many things that in this time that was hidden due to stereotypes and you played them well. I loved that Amber was so outgoing and went for what she wanted although most young women didn’t do this especially if they didn’t want a reputation. Thanks for sharing.

from ‘Haley Miller’

However, I had to choose so Haley Miller, you get the $20 Amazon voucher which I will email to you and Kyra, I’ll email you a copy of one of my books.

Have a great weekend!

The Book Boyfriend Blog Hop is back and better than ever!

The authors of Evernight have a brand new team of swoon-worthy book boyfriend candidates. A sexy assortment of cowboys, Doms, detectives, millionaires, royalty, vampires, soldiers, and shifters are just a click away.

Get ready to find your next book boyfriend…

The heroes in romance novels are larger than life – in more ways than one ;). They are the type of men that we love to read about because they can fulfil so many of our needs and desires. Real men are great, I’m not denying it, but a book boyfriend can be whatever and whoever you want him to be. There are qualities that a book boyfriend must have which include strength, stamina, good looks, a knowledge of how to please a woman, a man, or even both and a good heart. Even if he’s a bad boy, there needs to be something beneath the surface that makes him desirable, whether it’s a hidden vulnerability that makes you long to wrap your arms around him, or perhaps a sensitivity to the needs of his lover.

My book boyfriend this blog hop is cowboy Gideon Swain from my historical western Wanton in the Wild West. Amber Carpenter, 23, and her friend Maisie Bennett are being escorted home from Chicago to Deadwood in the summer of 1890 via the Chicago and North-Western Railroad. Amber is reluctant to leave Miss Claudia’s home where she has enjoyed spending time but she is excited by the presence of their escorts, two attractive cowboys: Gideon Swain, 29, and Harry Delaney, 23.



Gideon is confident, gorgeous and knows what he wants, although it does take him the course of the novella to be sure about it. His conflict lies in being filled with desire for Amber Carpenter, yet not wanting to repeat past mistakes (you’ll need to read the novella to find out what these are) because he has a strong sense of responsibility and a need to do the right thing, even if his erection has other plans. Gideon is concerned about Amber getting hurt – after all, she’s a virgin and a young woman – but he can also can see that Harry really likes her and that there is a growing attraction between the three of them. Gideon and Harry become close and make love and Amber willingly loses her virginity to Harry while Gideon makes love to him. It’s a hot yet tender scene about the need for physical fulfilment but also a deeper connection, which is what Gideon craves and has done for a long time.



Here’s what Amber thinks about Gideon and his companion Harry during the early part of their train journey:

Amber turned away and looked instead at the burly cowboys sat opposite. They were both big and broad-shouldered with long muscular legs and huge, rough hands. They wore dark suits—their Sunday best, she guessed, as being cowboys she doubted that their usual attire would be so smart. But that was where the similarities seemed to end. Gideon Swain had dark brown hair cropped close to his head. His eyes were a soft warm brown, and they crinkled at the corners when he smiled. He looked as if he were in his late twenties. His companion, Harry Delaney, was about twenty-three—the same age as she was. He wore his thick sandy blond hair combed backwards with some kind of pine and cinnamon scented pomade. Amber was fascinated by his hazel eyes, which seemed to change hue through the day, as if following the sun or betraying the slightest alteration in his mood.

The men exuded strength and vitality. Amber could just imagine them astride their horses, galloping across the Great Plains. Their physiques were those of working men who could tend the land and their animals with expert care, yet take down a troublemaker in a saloon with one punch. A woman would feel safe with a man like that around. Perhaps.
She chewed her lip at her own musings. But despite their solid exteriors, both men had an air of melancholy that floated like a delicate fragrance about them. She couldn’t quite pinpoint what it was, but it was there. It didn’t match up with their masculine physical presence, and Amber found it intriguing. What could have happened to them that gave them such an air of unease? She had spotted the quickly hidden flicker of pain that sliced through their eyes like lightning through the night sky. It reminded her of her own, and it drew her to them like bees to a flower bed. As she looked at them, her stomach flipped. It was a strange sensation and one that she wasn’t familiar with. She felt excited and nervous all at once, as if something was going to happen, but she wasn’t quite sure what. Her reaction had been identical when she’d first seen them in Chicago just over two weeks ago. They had arrived at Miss Claudia’s large townhouse in order to consult with her about escorting Amber and Maisie back to Deadwood. Having no mature female to accompany them had left Miss Claudia a little jittery, to say the least, but Mr. Swain and Mr. Delaney had been most reassuring and persuasive. And what choice had Miss Claudia had? Her boarding house was full to bursting, and it was high time that Amber and Maisie returned home. So she’d entrusted the young ladies into the care of the solemn young cowboys. Besides, they had come highly recommended by others within Miss Claudia’s social circle, and such recommendations were not to be sniffed at.
Just being near two such strong and worldly seeming men with only Maisie as a companion, stirred something naughty in Amber, and she had a feeling that her time in their company could end up being an education in itself. She wriggled around in her seat. Her purple satin travelling attire was very pretty and haute couture, but that didn’t mean that it was comfortable. She had chosen it because Miss Claudia admired how it lit up her blue eyes and created a perfect contrast to her black tresses. Amber shook her head. She had succumbed to vanity in a moment of weakness, and now she was paying for it. At least her travelling companions provided a welcome distraction.
Right now, Gideon had a small pair of round spectacles balanced on his aquiline nose, and he was making notes with a pencil in a little black leather bound book. He frowned at intervals, causing his Stetson to move forwards on his head. It made Amber giggle. He looked so serious, as if he was plotting to run for president, and she wondered what was going on in his mind. She was almost certain that his thoughts weren’t travelling in the same direction as her own. To his left, Harry had sunk low in his seat, his own black hat pulled down over his eyes, his long legs stretched out in front. Amber roamed his face, tracing the square line of his jaw where a light dusting of golden stubble had begun to grow. She wondered how it would feel to run her hand over his chin, to feel that rough hair against her palm. She shivered and pressed her thighs tightly together. His chest rose and fell rhythmically, and his strong hands lay clasped over his stomach. As she looked lower, casting a cautious glance around to check that no one observed her, she perused his groin. Maisie was a fool not to be interested in what lay beneath Harry’s trousers. Amber could clearly make out a substantial bulge, and she had to fight the urge to reach out and squeeze it. She shook her head. She was indeed a wanton woman. But she just wanted a little fun … a little experience before she gave in to drudgery. What was wrong with that?
She toyed with her fan, flicking it out then folding it back. The movement made her think of an agitated cat’s tail. She’d had a ball in Chicago where she’d stayed with Maisie and her loopy aunt Claudia, and she hadn’t wanted to leave. When she’d left Deadwood just over a year ago, she hadn’t been convinced that she’d have a good time at all. Granny Carpenter had talked her into it, telling her that all young ladies should know how to conduct themselves properly and that it would do her good to travel a little before settling down. Especially before settling down in Deadwood. Granny had even suggested that she might find herself a man in Chicago! A smile spread across her face, and she quickly concealed it with her fan. What would Granny have said if she’d known what Amber had gotten up to?

Molly Ann Wishlade interviews Catrin Owens from Trying Too Hard

Romance Library

Hey Catrin! Thanks for coming to my blog today.

Thanks Molly! I’m delighted to be here as part of the Carina authors We Love Romance blog hop.

You ready to answer some questions?

Fire away!

What’s in your refrigerator right now?

Um…well with Valentine’s Day just around the corner…I have a bottle of champagne and some strawberries. The problem is that this time of year, strawberries aren’t really at their best. I love them during July and August when they come straight from the fields. Of course, I don’t have much else there because…I’m kind of spending a lot of time at the Hilton. 😉

I see! Would that be with a certain gorgeous rugby player?

I don’t want to give too much away, Molly, but…well…I’m smiling aren’t I?

Do you have a habit you wish you could break?

Up until recently, I’d have said that I wanted to stop believing what my mother always told me about men. It was hard to deal with the constant onslaught growing up. But…I hope I’m moving on. Well…I know I am!

Does a sexy Frenchman have something to do with that?

*grins and blushes*

What do you like most about yourself?

My desire to see the good in everyone. I have a gentle heart and I always hope that others are the same. Sometimes…it gets me hurt. But I’d rather be positive than bitter and cold.

What do you dislike?

I hate the feeling of jealousy that sometimes creeps in. Like with Valentina, for instance. You know, the supermodel? When I saw her on the red carpet with Henri…I thought my heart would break.

That must have been tough.


What was it about Henri that made you fall in love with him?

Where do I start? He’s just such an amazing man! He’s all the obvious things…you know…sexy, gorgeous, an amazing lover…but he is also my best friend – next to Sarah. He gets me like no one else ever has. We laugh together, talk for hours and love snuggling up to watch TV shows like House of Cards and The Sopranos. He has good old fashioned family values, just like me.

He sounds wonderful. I’m so happy for you. What’s next?

Well, things are going great at the agency since the rugby match which got all that exposure! I have clients asking for me by name and so much work, I’ve actually had to decline a few.

And anything else?

Henri and I are going away for a Valentine’s break…after the Six Nations Championship finishes, of course. A few days alone, somewhere quiet, where no one knows us. I can’t wait!

Have a great time, Catrin! Thanks for stopping by. 

Here’s my excerpt for the Love Scene Blog Hop. Hope you like! Don’t forget to leave a comment below to be with a chance of winning the Grand Prize. I’m also offering a copy of my novella Wanton in the Wild West for two of the comments about the excerpt that make me smile.

“Now that you’re relaxed,” Gideon slid his arms around Amber and hugged her. “Harry and I need some relief, too.”
“Of course.” She nodded. She sighed as Gideon began tweaking her nipples, rolling them and pinching them. It created the most delicious sensations deep inside her and made her pussy begin to tingle again. “I didn’t know that I could be so aroused again so soon,” she whispered.
“Life can be this good.” Gideon buried his face in her hair. “Now, on all fours again.”
She did as he asked, then jumped as he gave her bottom a firm smack. “Beautiful!”
Amber glanced over her shoulder. Gideon had retrieved the small leather pouch from the ground and opened it. He stuck his fingers into the pouch, and when he brought them out they were covered in a thick, clear salve.
“What’s that?” Panic flickered in her belly.
Harry smoothed her bottom. “Nothing for you to worry about, sweetheart. It’s to ease Gideon into me.”
“Oh.” She watched as Gideon smothered the thick cloudy salve over his erection.
“Harry.” Gideon nodded at Amber. “It’s time.”
Harry nodded then moved towards Amber. He took hold of her hips. “I promise I’ll be gentle. Are you okay?”
She nodded, but her stomach flipped. She did want this, so much, but she knew she was getting in deeper than she’d anticipated. She’d wanted to make love to one man, and now she’d ended up with two. Two gorgeous, bright, kind, experienced cowboys! She had to get a grip on her emotions because she could feel her heart opening as a flower unfolds to the sun. What if she fell for them, and they didn’t want her? It might already be too late.
A pushing between her pussy lips distracted her, and she felt Harry’s cock at her opening.
“Amber?” His voice wavered.
“I’m sure, Harry. Take me!” He plunged into her in one go, and Amber bit her lip as she felt the remnants of something give. It stung for a moment, and then Harry withdrew before plunging again and again. As he relaxed into a rhythm she slid back to meet his thrusts. The discomfort faded as his cock filled her, and he found her clitoris with his knowing fingers.
The tingling of orgasm began spreading through her like warm mulled cider, and she floated along, savoring being pumped from behind. Harry was in control, yet he was not hurting her, not abusing her trust, not demeaning her in any way. He was doing what they both wanted, what they both needed.
“Stop!” Gideon’s command broke into her pleasure. Harry shuddered then froze, his erection pulsing inside Amber, her clit throbbing. She heard Gideon shuffle closer to Harry then a grunting as Harry was pushed forwards into her. “Now,” Gideon growled. “We make love together.”
It was a partnership, Amber realized. Harry and Gideon were partners in business as well as in life. Though Gideon was dominant sexually, he was also respectful and caring towards Harry. Harry was adorable, incredibly sexy, and caring. Any woman would be lucky to have these two men in her life. How she wished that she could be that woman.

Harry moved with Gideon’s thrusts, each one pushing him deeper into Amber’s tight cunny. Her inner muscles gripped his cock hard as Gideon’s filled his ass. He was in heaven. Sandwiched between a beautiful woman and the man he adored. Nothing could be better. As Gideon increased his pace behind him, his fingers digging into Harry’s hips, Harry felt himself climbing towards the pinnacle of ecstasy. His cock throbbed inside Amber’s hot flesh, and Gideon’s length rubbed him deep inside where it felt so good. Amber moaned and tossed her head as he tickled her throbbing bud with his fingers, and Gideon bit into his shoulder as he neared his own climax.
“Don’t come inside her,” Gideon said, and Harry nodded. He must not fill her with his seed. He could not get her with child. Whatever happened after today, even if by some amazing chance Amber wanted to be with him and Gideon again, she must never conceive. That was how women got hurt.
Suddenly, Amber thrust her hips backwards and groaned, bucking against his fingers as orgasm claimed her again. Straight after, Gideon’s cock swelled then pulsed as he filled Harry with his sweet, hot cum. It was too much!
His own cock tensed, so he whipped it from Amber’s body and rubbed it hard until his own ejaculation shot from him, sticky and white, all over Amber’s rounded thighs. Then he fell backwards into Gideon’s arms and laughed. Perfect. Delicious. Fulfilling. Exactly what he had been longing for.
