Spring Break is OVER!!

Woohoo. The kids are back in school, well, two of them anyway, still have a homeschooler and preschooler here, but half of them are gone and all will be quiet once again. Ahhhh....

Snort. Who am I kidding? Spring Break being over just means that I have to go back to teaching my 8 yr old before I get to write. Hmph.

So I got this email the other day. I thought it was hilarious and I hope no one else finds it offensive.

My all time favorite joke...

A couple goes on vacation to a fishing resort in northern Minnesota.
The husband likes to fish at the crack of dawn.
The wife likes to read.
One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out.
She motors out a short distance, anchors, and continues to read her book.
Along comes a game warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says,
"Good morning Ma'am. What are you doing?"
"Reading a book," she replies, (thinking "isn't that obvious?")
"You're in a restricted fishing area," he informs her.
"I'm sorry officer, but I'm not fishing, I'm reading."
"Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."
"If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault," says the woman.
"But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.
"That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment."
MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

Book Recommendation: Collision Course by K.A. Mitchell

Holy Macholy. If you haven't read this book yet, you should. If you don't read m/m, try this one. Oh. My. God. Fantastic writing, loved the boys, Aaron and Joey, loved the relationship and the sex...HOT. I'd been searching frantically through blurb after blurb waiting for anything to tempt me when I ran across this one. I'd read another of hers, Regularly Scheduled Life, and it made me cry, but the blurb on this one made me grab it up. I love stories about cops and paramedics so this one sounded right up my alley since Aaron is a paramedic and Joey a klutz... I could only imagine the possiblities. Needless to say I stayed awake all night reading and finished this morning. Then I promptly reprimanded K.A. for keeping me awake. She did not, however, tell me that there was ANOTHER book before this one with characters you meet in Collision Course. So tonight, dang it, I shall be up again reading Diving in Deep. Because, how could I not?

Happy reading,

Oh, look at that. How nice of me to not have spoken since September! Lord I suck at this stuff. My apologies. I'd love to share my latest cover with you for Tooth and Claw which releases April 28th. It's been a long time since I've had a release so I'm really excited! Here's the blurb:

Vampire: (noun) Bloodsucker, murderer, bedpost-notcher, God’s gift to women, fiend.

Seth Gramble is a prince among his people. Half vampire, half jaguar, he is one of a rare few who can shift into an animal form. Both his halves have found their mate in a female detective determined to lump all vampires in with the rogue who killed her former lover. He’s given her six months to see him differently. He’s done waiting.

Paxton Tenor wants nothing to do with a blood-sucking fiend, no matter how much he makes her body sing. Nothing good can come of a vampire. A case she’s working on partners her with Seth, and she’s forced to reconsider her hatred. He doesn’t seem at all like the rogue who sucked the life from her boyfriend in cold blood.

When Seth’s kitty comes out to play, Paxton realizes she’s been stupid to deny herself this man. And when he puts his life on the line to protect hers? All bets are off.

Warning: Let’s be realistic here people; there’s sex. Who doesn’t want to be coerced into bed by a sexy, God’s-gift-to-women vampire? And when they can be undressed and on you before you can blink—hello. Even if said vampire faints at the sight of his own blood…
