Romancing the Hop: Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the Romancing the Hop: Blog Hop 

I’m definitely not a true Romantic, but I do believe in lust at first sight. I think all great relationships should start from a little spark that ignites into something passionate.

Met my ex-husband that way over 10 years ago. He came into the bar wearing his Naval Uniform and that was all she wrote. I was hooked and couldn’t get enough. But alas, it wasn’t meant to be. (We made way better friends that being married.)  

 So on to the good stuff:

For your blog hop enjoyment I am going to be pimping promoting Stacey Kennedy.

I got the opportunity to meet Stacey at Authors After Dark NOLA and she was fantastic. (See pic below for her awesomeness…..)

Cynthia from Bitten by Paranormal Romance, Stacey Kennedy, Annie from BookedandLoaded

Author Bio:

I’m a multi-published author and am represented by Jessica Alvarez of BookEnds, who is my strengthen in this crazy world of publishing. I’ve written quite a few ebooks, and starting in 2013 I will be published in mass-market paperback, which is exciting times.

My journey as a writer all began as a way to keep my brain alive since being a stay at home mom can be a little let’s say―numbing. It was an escape from screaming kids, dirty diapers and plain old mom duty.  It started as a hobby, but as the stories progressed it became a passion, especially when it comes down to the juicy bits. Every mom needs a good thrill! Now with my kiddos in school, I have more time to indulge and get lost in another world for a little while.

I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband who gave me my happily ever after. We have two small children who keep me on my toes and can always make me smile. But we also have basically a zoo at our house with one dog, three cats and two guinea pigs. I love the outdoors, camping, curling up with the latest flick and simply enjoying life.

If I’m not plugging away at a new story—which isn’t often since my muse is annoying and keeps me busy—I’ve got my nose buried deep in a good book! I’m always on the lookout for new authors to love.

So there it is―my life!

Bind Me

Pact of Seduction Book One

BDSM Erotic Romance

Publisher: Loose Id

ISBN: 978-1-61118-570-6

Length: Novella

Heat Level: Sizzling

Four best friends embrace their fantasies and make a pact of seduction to live out their deepest and darkest desires. The women place their lives in the hands of fate and one short straw declares Marley will be the first to awaken her secret wishes.

Reed, a Dom at sex club Castle Dolce Vita, has lived the BDSM lifestyle for awhile, but has yet to find a submissive that suits him. That is until he meets Marley, a woman seeking to indulge her fantasies.

As Reed guides her through a night of pleasure, Marley brings more to him than a perfect submissive–she stirs emotions in him long ago lost. By binding Marley, he runs up against his own limits, and now he has to choose between his self-protective barriers or surrendering to the wildfire Marley has reignited in his heart.

Pact of Seduction Book 2

BDSM Erotic Romance

Publisher: Loose Id

ISBN: 978-1-61118-685-7

Length: Novella

Heat Level: Sizzling

The Pact of Seduction has one rule—fulfill your ultimate fantasy. Bella’s problem, she can’t live up to her vow. But her failure spins events that lead her into unknown territory. Kole, a Dom at the sex club Castle Dolce Vita, wasn’t part of her fantasy, but he’s about to show her he should have been.

Kole is more than willing to introduce Bella to BDSM since he’s held an interest in her for some time. But the feisty woman isn’t easily tamed and her strong personality proves to be difficult. While she might be determined to keep him at a distance, Kole has other ideas. He won’t allow her to shut him out.

A pact between best friends brought them together, emotional barriers tear them apart. Kole skillfully reminds Bella through pleasure and punishment that she is now his submissive, and her place is under his command.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements.

    Thanks for participating! Really like the hop so far!! I love reading, especially romance. I love reading contemporary, historical and erotic romance. I love the happy ending that is garenteed at the end. My favorite book is Lover Mine by JR Ward! I love John Matthew and Xhex. My favorite romantic moment was when my fiancé asked me to marry him! We meant two years ago right around when summer was ending when my friend and I went out for our last big night out before classes started again. I think it is romantic when he brings me flowers because no one else has ever done it! Thanks so much! Hope everyone else is having a great long weekend!!
