Holidays ROCK! I love giving gifts away. It’s so much fun to play Santa. For this hop, I get to play Santa again :) When my niece and nephew were small, we used to hide all the gifts and then rush to put them under the tree. Once we got a bigger place it was easier to hide them.

Let’s put gifts aside for a second while I share a recipe my latin family adores.

Take a moment to read about my latest release: Stranded Temptation.

 

Stranded Temptation

Stranded together, their passions will run wild.

Kara has a deep dislike for her boss, Max. She also wants him so badly it’s making her nuts. He’s a workaholic, a robot man. And he’s never shown the least bit of interest in her or anything else that wasn’t recorded in the corporate minutes. But when their plane crashes on the way to a meeting, leaving them stranded on a deserted island…just the two of them, all alone with all that ocean around them…Kara decides it’s time to start living. And by living, she means using Max for all the hot sex she’s been denied.

Max wants Kara—has wanted her for a long time. Unable to come out and cross the line between professional and personal, he makes her accompany him on business trips just to have her around. When they crash land and Kara shows him how much she wants him, he decides to quit being so professional and take the woman of his dreams. After all, what happens in the middle of nowhere, stays in the middle of nowhere. Until they’re rescued.

Back in the real world, things aren’t as easy. Kara is afraid to start a relationship with a man who completely ignored her until she took off her clothes, and Max is afraid she’ll never be able to trust him. But when someone makes it clear that Kara’s in danger, Max has more to protect than Kara’s feelings. And now that he has her, he’s not about to let her go.

Congratulations!!!!

 

 

Welcome to my stop on the Candy Cane Kink Giveaway Hop

 

 

One of my favorite holiday traditions is putting up the tree. When we put up the tree, I always buy the multi-colored candy canes. My son loves them and everyone ends up grabbing them as we hand out presents. I wish I could have those big real firs in my living room, but with living in NYC and lack of space, not to mention my bad asthma and allergies I end up putting up a fake. It’s still fun because my son helps me decorate it. He’s very picky as to where he wants each ornament to go. Of course I have to wait until after he goes to bed to change them to where I want them LOL. Bad mom! With gifts in mind, I’d like to give a gift away HERE.

SSS: Stranded Temptation

Today I’m giving you a bit from my HOT contemporary erotic romance- Stranded Temptation (OUT NOW!)

Enjoy

Before she realized what was going on, her dress was hiked up to her waist. He curled his fingers around the gauzy fabric of her thong and pulled. The soft material came off with a rip, and he dipped his fingers into her wet heat.

Oh, my.

Wait, what were they doing? They were in his office, and Susan was right outside that door.

Breaking the Nexus – Coming 12/12/12!!

Blurb:

Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy…or are they?

Beyond the world you see lies a hidden realm, the Mythrian Realm, inhabited by all of the creatures you’ve been told are mere fiction. Only one thing lies between humans and the truth: the Nexus. A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.

For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unravel the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.

The Nexus is breaking and all hell is about to unleash…literally.

 

EXCLUSIVE SNIPPET!!

Fingers snapped in front of her, drawing her startled gaze. “Am I boring you, Ms. Phoenix?”

Sha felt her cheeks begin to burn. “Sorry, Detective. I didn’t mean to let my mind wander off like that. My brain must still be addled.” A noncommittal grunt was his only response. Things were off to a wonderful start, she thought with a scowl.

Long moments passed, the uncomfortable silence making her want to squirm. Oh, she knew exactly what he was doing. He wanted her agitated so she’d let something slip. They’d been taught a similar tactic during training; lucky for her, she didn’t have any knowledge to divulge. Squaring her shoulders, she met his gaze unflinchingly.

“Wasn’t there something you wanted to ask, Detective? Or did you just want to have a staring contest?” A small part of her liked staring into his eyes, the intense gray seeming to shift subtly, almost like mercury. Intriguing. She filed that bit of information away to examine later.

“You’re hiding something, aren’t you?”

She decided to play dumb. “How can I hide anything when you haven’t asked a question?”

“At first I thought you were high as a kite at the scene, but you’re more intelligent than I thought.”

Why did it sting that he’d thought she was high? “Is that a compliment or a question?”

 

Meet Lindsay Avalon!

I am a wife, a programmer, and now an author. I have an adorable mini Schnauzer and more books than I have room for. I love reading romance because no matter what may be happening in my life, I can always count on my books to end happily ever after. The day I met my husband was the day I truly began believing in happily ever after. After hearing me complain a few too many times that I had “nothing” to read despite the hundreds of paperbacks scattered around the house, my husband began suggesting I write my own stories. When I finally took his advice I discovered that although I enjoy my day job as a software engineer, my true calling is to be an author.

My sister drilled into me an appreciation for fantasy and mythology, something I try to bring to my books. My debut novel, Breaking the Nexus started as a book written for NaNoWriMo and has grown to so much more. It was the conduit that introduced me to a fantastic group of independent authors who have changed my life in unimaginable ways.

When I’m not writing, I’ve found a passion for blogging and interviewing fellow authors. I also love reading (of course!), baking, crochet, sewing sock monkeys, playing video games, and all sorts of random crafts. I have an incurable love of rubber duckies and stuffed animals, and I believe nobody should have to grow up if they don’t want.
