I'm Free! Soon!

To Be Sung To The Tune Of The Teddy Bears' Picnic

If you go down to the Kindlestore
You're in for a FREE surprise
This whole weekend you won't have to spend
For a red dress and shapely thighs
It fast it's fun
You'll get nothing done
I have a hunch
You'll cram read through lunch
There's no excuse to say no

To Nanny Behaving Badly

A taster of Nanny Behaving Badly ...

"Lyle strode to the edge of the tub and helped her back out. When he pulled her to his side she was ludicrously covered in white foam and they were inches apart. In stark comparison he was still dry. And so was her mouth when she looked up at the vision of all man poster-perfect body, his well-muscled arms, chest and athletic legs in full view.
Maddie cursed her own impulses when she realised her robe was soaked, hanging open and dripping around her feet. There were suds balls in her hair.
‘You might have warned me you’re into foam parties,’ he said wryly. ‘There are people out there who’d pay good money to watch you.’
‘Shall I call 999?’ she asked meekly.Lyle laughed and it proved instantly infectious, causing her to giggle along as she stood dripping and covered in slippery foam. Nice way to impress the boss, Adams!
‘I’m sorry, Lyle,’ she said, knowing the laughter still didn’t detract from the crimson blush at her own crazy behaviour. ‘I’ve done it again, haven’t I? Like I did in the cafĂ©. What is it with me and acting in haste?’
Lyle untied her robe for her. ‘You’d better take that off for starters.’ Him slipping the wet fabric from her shoulders made her gulp and shiver. She watched as he threw the sopping garment away. Became ultra aware of herself standing before him in a swimsuit like an unruly street urchin. 
‘Is saying sorry enough for you to overlook this incident?’ she asked.
‘No. I want to take the moral high-ground for a bit longer. Make you squirm.’ He scooped up a large foamy wad and split it in two, then put it on her shoulders. The hairs on her body reacted to the slight contact. She wanted more. And that would be a very bad move.
Maddie removed some foam from her hair and blew it back at him. ‘Wise guy, huh?’"

Kidnapped And Claimed For His Bed

Welcome today to the lovely Rachel Lyndhurst who has just had a HUNKY and happy new arrival in the form of Kidnapped By The Greek Billionaire from Entangled Press. Find out more about Entangled here.

Here's some scrumptious info and CHECK OUT that chest why don't you:


Or that’s what it feels like to Kizzy Dean when a business disagreement with arrogant Greek lawyer Andreas Lazarides leaves her no choice but to accompany him to the Greek Isle of Rhodes. It doesn’t help matters that this sexy brooding stranger, who is unaccustomed to the word No and the very idea of commitment, shows her what it feels like to be truly desired.

Amidst the ancient myths and alleyways, tensions run high as Kizzy feels an immediate attraction for the man she wants to both ravage and strangle.

Accustomed to gold-digging women, Andreas is mesmerized by Kizzy’s feisty nature and Gypsy beauty. Guilt and sorrow have been his only bedfellows since his sister’s death, but Kizzy stirs up a desire he’s unwilling to succumb to . . . until she makes him an offer he simply can’t refuse.

I wish her all the very very best with it (and with a cover like that I'm sure it'll be a big hit!)

Any Chance Of Some Promo Help?

I'm recovering from a recent hospital op (actually I'm in huge awe of hospitals so twas a great research opportunity even if there was pain and needles involved) My family are gathering round *making dinners* so I'm lapping up the attention. Thank you lovely family.

Next weekend - Sat 25th and Sun 26th Feb - Nanny Behaving Badly will be available as a free kindle download for a limited period. Yey; I'm hoping lots of people take the opportunity to get it.

In this vein I'd love to get the word around - so if anybody can spare a second next weekend for a brief-as-can-be blog/facebook or twitter mention I'd be so very grateful in the hope that it helps people get to hear about it.

Stay tuned for the link to FREE NANNY BEHAVING BADLYnext weekend.In the meantime - I'm on jammies and DVD duty. It's a hard life ...

Playing Catch Up

Well, my 100k challenge got derailed after just a week or so with revisions which had to take priority. However technically I have still been writing every day but I'm not including my revisions work in the total because - that would get too complex for my brain to handle.

Which means I'm playing catch up on the challenge. I currently have two WIPS on the go. This week I'm aiming at at least 2k a day on WIP number two.

So far I've done 23k in total. I should ideally be around the 38k mark. But 23k is still progress, so catch up is doable and has to be worth a try.

A Date With Darling Lyle

I am very pleased to tell you ...

Drum Roll Please ...

The the lovely team at E-Scape Press are very kindly offering Nanny Behaving Badly as a freebie Kindle download on 25th and 26th of February. Cue big yeys! As belated Valentine's gifts go it's hard to beat.

So if you haven't read it and fancy getting your mits on a free copy put the date in your diary now. I'll holler again nearer the time (because I'm good that way).

Why read Lyle and Maddie's story?

If you like hot frothy latte and slabs of something sticky and sweet - Nanny Behaving Badly is a barista themed book with a nanny story fluffy centre and a diva attitude as topping.
Lyle's hot. Maddie's impulsive and a little bit naughty.
Lyle needs a nanny and Maddie neads a break equals close proximity sparks.
Tie it up with an Edinburgh Winter time setting and add a coffee bar launch event challenge bow.

Mister Drool

Whilst writing cowboy I found a picture that fitted the hero to perfection. To my considerable delight (I know I'm sad that way).

So I quicksticks put it on my phone as a wallpaper and looked at it often in those 'help me, I need inspiration, what would Gabe do?' moments. Which came frequently. Actually. By the truckload. The only fly in my ointment? Didn't have a scooby who Mr Hunk was. Today's point of joy - I've found him!

Google is a wonderful thing. Ian Somerhalder. From The Vampire Diaries. Unfortunately canny find a pic of him in cowboy gear and chaps but ye canny have it all, Jim, all Jim, all Jim, ye canny have it all Jim (so dream it up instead ...)
