The Alpha Male Blog Hop!

In days past, he was a grunter. Alpha = hair pulling, head clubbing and lair dragging. We’ve managed to civilize our heroes somewhat since then, but I, for one, still want a man who’s just a little bit masterful. Who might take me by surprise occasionally and sweep me off to his lair (no dragging!)

Nathan Powell is a modern alpha male. No hair pulling, but lots of sweeping off feet!

Social misfit Jessamy James pays the bills with a cleaning job so she can do what she really loves: tell stories to children. She meets NFL superstar Nathan Powell when she cleans his house. He’s intrigued by her reclusive attitude, and she’s drawn to his open personality and lack of defensive walls. It doesn’t take long for attraction to set in, and for a relationship to blossom.

When Nathan is accused of dealing drugs, Jess is caught up in the media storm and finds her own vocation slipping through her fingers. They struggle together to clear his name and rescue both their careers.

Catch A Shooting Star!

In just a few days, Catch a Shooting Star will be released by Ellora’s Cave Blush! Nathan and Jess are two of my favorite characters, and telling their story was a lot of fun.

Social misfit Jessamy James pays the bills with a cleaning job so she can do what she really loves—tell stories to children. She meets NFL superstar Nathan Powell while cleaning his house. Jess has never met a man with so much trust in the world, and he’s never met anyone he couldn’t charm. Outwardly, they’re complete opposites, but Nathan is intrigued by Jess’ reclusive attitude, and she’s drawn to his open personality. The attraction between them is inevitable.

When Nathan is dragged into a drug scandal, Jess is caught up in the media storm and finds her own vocation slipping through her fingers. As they struggle together to clear his name and rescue both their careers, they discover things about themselves that only strengthen the bond between them.

In honor of release day, on the 15th – really close now! – I’m giving away a $10 Amazon gift card. What do you have to do? At the bottom of this post there are buttons to share on Facebook or Twitter. Click on one of them, and you go into the draw! The giveaway is open until Sunday 18th March.

Emerging from the rubble…

Whew! What a crazy few weeks it’s been. I feel like I haven’t had time to relax since the beginning of December.

Finally I’ve got some time to call my own, although that won’t last long…my brother’s wedding is coming up in just over three weeks, and as one of the bridesmaids – and the sister of the groom – I’ve been commandeered to help with the details.

For now, though, an update. I’ve been working on the edits for Catch a Shooting Star (CaSS), which is under contract with Ellora’s Cave Blush. It’s shaping up really nicely, and I’m falling more in love with Jess and Nathan every day. You can read a blurb on the Bookshelf, and as soon as I have any more details, I’ll let you know.

Louisa’s been busy, too, on virtual tour to promote Inter-Office Relations. She’s taking a break for the next week or so, and then back to the blogs on the 23rd January. Her tour is, as always, accompanied by giveaways, so head over to www.louisamasters.com to check out the tour schedule.

I was incredibly naughty the other day and stole some time to read for pleasure *gasp!* For fans of historical romance, I strongly recommend you try Connie Brockway’s The Other Guy’s Bride. It reminded me of The Mummy movie, only without the mummy, and with a whole lot more! Total five star read for me.

Okay, now back to the salt mines. My everyday job is very demanding at the moment – we’re relocating the office and I never knew how much crap I’d accumulated in my desk!
