And the Winner is….

CATHY M!

But no one got all four answers right. Not even Cathy. So I wrote em down, cut em out and picked the winner from a hat. (ok, darn it. It was a coffee cup. But it was clean, I swear).

For some reason, people seemed to think I was the naughty one in the bunch and everyone guessed Gina’s line was mine. But it wasn’t me! It was GINA!  So to ease your burning curiosity, here are the correct answers:

1. She followed Charlene’s finger and turned in her seat. She gazed into a belt buckle only six inches away from the tip of her nose. Oh dear.

From Love Rescued Me by Debra Kayn

2. It was lust. Overwhelming, all consuming, spread-her-legs-wide lust, and it was all for him.

From Her Five Favorite Words by Gina Gordon (GINA! Not me!)

3.You’re slick as a seal, aren’t you?

From The Highwayman by Fiona Vance (THAT’s me. 🙂

4. His hand alone sent her reeling toward the edge of an orgasm and brought out her inner wickedness in five seconds flat. Two seconds if he used both hands, she bet.

From Didja Know by Abby Wood. That’s naughty, too. Maybe Abby was working with Gina on that one…

Congratulations, Cathy! We’ll send your books right on over! 🙂

And thank you to everyone who came by to play with us today!

Love, Fiona 🙂

And now… the Contest!

Just guess which of these four lines comes from which book:

1. She followed Charlene’s finger and turned in her seat. She gazed into a belt buckle only six inches away from the tip of her nose. Oh dear.

2. It was lust. Overwhelming, all consuming, spread-her-legs-wide lust, and it was all for him.

3.You’re slick as a seal, aren’t you?

4. His hand alone sent her reeling toward the edge of an orgasm and brought out her inner wickedness in five seconds flat. Two seconds if he used both hands, she bet.

Easy! Leave your answer in the comments, and we’ll pick a winner this evening by the highly scientific method of tossing all the correct answers in a hat and picking one without looking (ok, maybe not a hat. Maybe like a coffee cup or a bowl or something. But “pick a name from the Rubbermaid” just doesn’t have the right ring to it). If there are no correct answers, then we’ll toss them all into the… as yet to be determined container.

And of course, on your way to the comments section, please allow the waiter to assist you in partaking from our elegant brunch  buffet (the lobster quiche is spectacular!) and pour you a lovely, freshly-squeezed Mimosa (with your choice of Cristal or Dom Perignon). And whatever else you may require. He’s a very, very eager slave–ah, waiter.


Blog Party on Sunday with Abby Wood and Gina Gordon

And in honor of having guests, I’ve cleaned a house a little. What do you think of the new theme? Good? Better? Worse?

Let me know!


Welcome Guest Author Berengaria Brown!

Dinner Delights by Berengaria BrownI’m sharing some room today with one of my fellow Breathless Press authors, the lovely Ms. Berengaria Brown. It’s Breathless Press’s first anniversary this month, so stay tuned for more fun with the Breathless Babes!

But for now, please welcome Berengaria Brown!

Fiona: Welcome Berengaria! Thanks for coming to talk to us today! First question: Lots of writers are creative in other ways, too. If you weren’t so busy writing, what other creative thing would you do instead?

Berengaria: I just love to read. If I’m not at the day job or writing I am reading.

Fiona: Why do you write in your chosen genre? Do you have others in mind for future books?  

Berengaria: I love to read all different genres so I write in them too. Most of my books currently out are MMF ménage but some are contemporary-set and others are paranormal. I also have a straight MF book too. My August release is MMM and I have lesbian erotica releasing in September and another one coming out in November. In October I have an MM book coming out. So I think there is something there for every taste!

Fiona: There’s so much more to the writing business than just writing books. How do you juggle all the “behind the scenes” work–the edits with your editors, the blogging and social networking with your fellow authors at different publishing houses, the interaction with readers…and still find time to write?

Berengaria: Well sleep is a highly over-rated activity!

Seriously, I have been known to write and do edits when at the day job (sshhh don’t tell my boss). The hardest part is not being able to attend chats during the day time. That sucks. But I do manage to chat to people in the evenings.

Fiona: When you were a kid, what did you want to be “when you grew up?”

Berengaria: As a little kid I didn’t have a job in mind that I wanted to do when I grew up. I worked one summer in a shop though and decided there and then I didn’t want to do that ever again!

Fiona: If you got a seven-figure, multi-book deal tomorrow, what would be the first thing you’d do?

Berengaria: Likely I’d die of shock! I’d want to throw a party for my friends though, the people who have encouraged me and who believe in me.

Fiona: What’s the weirdest thing in your garage/basement/shed/other dedicated storage area right now? (heh-heh-heh… and don’t say rotten calamari!)

Berengaria: A bucket with stones in it. When we were kids we used to collect “pet rocks” and so far I haven’t managed to throw them away. And no, they aren’t especially pretty or unique. They’re just rocks.

Fiona: What is your favorite fairy tale? Why?

Berengaria: Hmm Maybe Rumpelstiltskin. So many of the girls/princesses in the stories are quite stupid. At least in this one she outsmarts him. Oh, no, how about Snow White. She had 7 men to hang out with and I’m not at all convinced she was as snow white after that!

Fiona: Finally, tell us a little bit about your new release!

“Dinner Delights” by Berengaria Brown, out now at Breathless Press.

Blurb-

Two workmates. A boring dinner function. An explosion of lust. Will it lead to love?

Krystal is thrilled when Troy asks her to be his seatmate at a boring work dinner. He is a totally yummy hunk, whom she has loved forever.

When they dance, their passions combust and they rush back to her apartment to take their relationship to the next level: from friends to lovers.

Their night together is better than anything Krystal had ever imagined. But can it last? What will happen tomorrow?
