Day’s End Farm Horse Rescue, The Wild Rose Press and Maggie Toussaint

February 29, 2008 By: Jenn L Category: Guest Blogger, Latest News 6 Comments →

February 29 comes around every four years, and when it appears, folks take notice. Leap Year Day in 2008 marks the release of my second romantic suspense, NO SECOND CHANCE, from The Wild Rose Press, in trade paperback format. This story about a horse rescuer and a corporate executive trying to outwit a lethal enemy has an added bonus. Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit Days End Farm Horse Rescue. 

Why horses you ask? Ever since I was a girl I loved horses. I lived for the times when I was allowed to ride my neighbor’s horses. I couldn’t get enough of horses. I brushed them for hours. I sat on them bareback as they grazed in their fields. I loved to race them across the salt marsh. I just flat out couldn’t get enough of horses. 

My oldest daughter had the same deep-seated affection for horses, so I got a double dose of horses. I ended up on the board of a therapeutic riding center. I was so impressed by the way chronically ill children responded to horses, and how these horses, all of them donated to the center, loved the children unconditionally. 

It was during that time that I wrote the first draft of NO SECOND CHANCE. I wanted to give back to the magnificent animals that had helped so many children, to give those who needed help a second chance. When I signed the contract with my publisher this year, I knew a horse charity would be a beneficiary of the proceeds. The nonprofit I selected, Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Lisbon, MD, assists in the rescue of horses across the U.S. (www.defhr.org 

My book is about a woman named Hope who is about to lose the only home she’s ever known, Second Chance Farm, a horse rescue organization she founded. Devlin is the corporate mogul who needs her help to win his dream job. His dying mother gifted her stock and her board seat to Hope with the understanding that Hope and Devlin would help each other. Sparks fly from the boardroom to the barn to the bedroom when these two unite against a foe that is determined to win at any cost. 

Reviews for NO SECOND CHANCE are posted at www.maggietoussaint.com, as well as Buy Links for the electronic format. Print copies of the book are available at online vendors, such as Amazon or Barnes and Noble, or they may be ordered from any book store. (ISBN 9781601541628, The Wild Rose Press) 

I’m participating in a book give-away contest, the Wishing for Spring Round-up, which runs from March 1-16. Contest details are listed at www.maggietoussaint.com. While you’re there, check out my other titles including SEEING RED, a sweet romance from Freya’s Bower, and an upcoming hardcover mystery release in June from Five Star.

NO Second Chance by Maggie Toussaint 

Hope Farrier rescues unwanted horses, but she’s saddled with debt. Without help she’ll lose Second Chance Farm, the first home she’s ever known. An endowment brings the promise of future relief and the presence of shrewd business manager, Devlin Temple. Trouble is Devlin has his dreamy blue eyes on more than her bottom line.

Playboy Devlin Temple lays a trap for the thief that’s fleecing his company. When his cousin sets his cap for Devlin’s job, Devlin needs Hope’s help to secure the CEO position. In her arms he finds the solace he craves, but their blossoming romance prompts the thief to raise the stakes.

Wine and Romance with Michele Scott

February 28, 2008 By: Jenn L Category: Guest Blogger, Latest News 3 Comments →

Good Morning Junkies!!!

Today we have Michele Scott with us and she is gonna to take us on tour of wine. I for one agree that a good glass of wine with the one you love is romantic and relaxing. Michele is well versed on thew topic of wine since she writes a the WINE LOVERS MYSTERIES.

Sit back and enjoy and please let us know do you have a favorite wine or even a romantic hint for us. With the fast pace of living I for one can use all the help I can get to put a little romance in my marriage.

Welcome Michele!!

 

Great Italian Wines for Under $20.00 

I thought it might be fun to talk wines on the blog. I write the wine lover’s mystery series and I think having a glass of wine with your lover (I feel so Sarah Jessica-Parker “saying” that—did anyone see that episode when Carrie was dating the Russian guy Baryshnikov played, and she kept referring to him as, “My Lover? To her friends? I loved that episode. Every time she said lover, I cracked up. Sorry for the digression. I am a big SATC fan—anyway) at the end of a hard day is kind of romantic. But what would it “kick it up a notch?” Italy. Yes, I have been daydreaming lately about gondola rides, beautiful music and a free round trip ticket to the country so many associate with romance. 

What’s not to love about Italy? Just the mention of the various cities such as Rome, Sicily, Tuscany, Milan and all the villages scattered throughout this amazing country makes one want to steal kisses with that special significant other, sit down at an outdoor café and order a good bottle of wine and some delicious food. Well, let’s face it, many of us can’t hop the next flight on Alitalia, but we can create a bit of that Italian flare in our own homes amongst our friends and family. And believe it or not, we can do it without spending a lot of money at the wine shop and time in the kitchen. 

I’ve been on this Italian kick lately because pasta always goes over well with everyone in my house and a glass of wine at the end of the day with my husband is something the two of us savor. It’s more a lifesaver with three kids than romantic. But the idea is nice. Italy alone with him would be even nicer. We both agree that when we find a good wine for under $20.00, we’ve discovered something great. Here’s a list of some wonderful Italian wines that are all under $20.00. 

Südtirol Alto Adige

2006

Eisacktaler

Müller Thurgua T

he Müller Thurgua varietal is grown close to the Austrian border and is an off-dry wine that pairs well with light cheeses, salads, sea food and believe it or not, it’s terrific with macaroni and cheese! This is a crisp wine that contains no oak flavor to it and is fermented in steel barrels. It’s truly light and refreshing and terrific with or without food. If you’re thinking that a relaxing bath with a bit of lavender oil sprinkled in it and this wine on hand, then you are on target. What’s also on target with this wine is the price at $11.00. 

 The next wine is Teruzzi & Puthod                                      

2005

Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 

San Gimignano is a village in Tuscany about an hour south of Florence. The village is called the Manhattan of Italy because it is a pre-Renaissance village surrounded by tall towers. The vineyards in this area are surrounded by olive groves and if you focus on the flavors of this wine you will be able to taste a note of green olive. This wine is a dry white with a hint of fruitiness and not at all sweet. It pairs with cream sauce pastas, chicken, and seafood. However, I’d go simple with this and pair it with prosciutto and melon. It’s outstanding! You can pick this gem up for $11.00  

The last white I’ll include is a wonderful Pinot Grigio from Delle Venezie.  

Kris Pinot Grigio

2006

Delle Venezie 

This Pinot Grigio comes from North Eastern Italy where some of the best Pinot Grigios are produced due to the cooler climate. What’s wonderful about this wine is at its price point you won’t find it at all thin or watery. It shows good fruit, balance, and acids. It is a fantastic value at $12.00, and is perfect for chicken or seafood in a lemon or butter sauce.  

Onto the reds.

Terre del Nero D’Avola,

2003 vintage.

The Nero D’ Avolo is an indigenous grape to Sicily. This ancient grape dates all the way back to the pre-Roman era. It’s similar to a California Zinfandel because like the California Zin it has a touch of pepper and spice on the palette. This red pairs nicely with pizza, lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, anything with a red sauce basically. It’s also a great barbeque wine and is tasty with a good burger. At $10.00 you can’t go wrong.  

The Barbera D’ Alba

2005

Produced by Damilano from Piedmont, which is located in North Western Italy, not too far from Southern France, is a soft red that doesn’t contain too many tannins. A slight chill on this wine is really nice as it’s not heavy at all. This is a great cheese wine. It also pairs well with chicken, veal and lamb. The price on this fantastic wine is $17.00  

Cascina Castle’t

2005

Barbera d’Osti 

This wine is also from the Piedmont region, however, the Barbera wines coming out of Osti tend to be heavier than from Alba.  I picked this wine up because I liked the label (and who says that marketing isn’t everything?). The label is of four little girls on an old school Vespa circa early sixties. It struck me as cute and for $16.00, I couldn’t pass it up. Word is that the girl dressed in pink runs this winery, and I enjoyed the wine as much as I do the label. This red would is excellent with Osso Bucco or Veal Milanese, but if it’s been a long week and you’re thinking simple sounds good, then take out a pizza and enjoy. 

If you want to end the night with a bit of dessert Italiano style, then go for a bottle of Nivole Muscato 2006. It has a slight sparkle to it and is decadent in its own right or if you’re not counting calories, what the heck—add your fave from a bowl of berries, the classic tiramisu or lemon gelato—YUM! Be decadent, be romantic, mysterious and live life. Come on, you know you want to. Go ahead and bring a little Italy on home. 

Saluté my friends!

Dialogue and You by Aline de Chevigny

February 27, 2008 By: Jenn L Category: Latest News 2 Comments →

I’ve thought about what I should blog about for weeks. So I warn you now, I’m not very good at this. LOL After much consideration I decided to discuss dialogue and description.

I know a lot of authors who have difficulty with dialogue, they stress over it. Agonize over every word their characters utter. I never do. Why you ask? That’s easy, I see the story through dialogue. It’s the description I agonize over LOL

If you’ve ever been my critique partner, you’d know that my first draft of any story is illegible to anyone but me. Only I can tell who’s talking to who and why they’re saying the things they do. Hey but that works for me, everyone finds their own personal writing style. Once my dialogue is in place, I can add the description and fill in the holes.

Ok now for the advice hehe. Write what you know. When you create characters try to make their dialogue flow by basing your characters speech patterns on people you know until you feel comfortable creating dialogue out of thin air. Go to a crowded restaurant, or food court and people watch. Study people on the subway or the bus while on your way to and from work. You’ll notice people talk differently in the morning, then at night and that will help you determine how your characters speak.

Again, do what feels comfortable to you and the rest will come.

Aline de Chevigny

Welcome Guest Blogger Aline de Chevigny!!!

February 27, 2008 By: Jenn L Category: Contests, Guest Blogger, Latest News 5 Comments →

Happy Wednesday Junkies!!!

Today we are joined by Aline de Chevigny, she’s discussing dialogue and description. Her release THE RAVENSON PROJECT: CHRONICLES OF THE CURSED book 2 is avaliable now at Aspen Mountain Press. 

So sit back and join us for a little about Aline and her novel as well as a excerpt from it.

When I was born, my parents christened me Aline de Chevigny. Maybe they knew then, what I’m just now figuring out. I was born to be a romance author! I am Canadian and a Chemical Engineering Technologist who decided one day to try the impossible. Or so I thought, LOL, the year I turned 30, I moved far away from all my family and friends to start a new job. I was so bored and lonely that I picked up my pen and started writing the stories floating around in my head down on paper. I never dreamed they’d be published, but to my surprise and delight my publisher liked it. My family has been extremely supportive of my goal and they continue encouraging me to sub my works.

Since that day I’ve written and sold 15 books, from Novella to Novel length and in various romance genres.

 Aline de Chevigny

Malek DeWinter, learnt the hard way that the Raven Lord he’d thought had aved him from death so many years ago, wasn’t what he appeared to be. After a night of passionate lovemaking with his new found mate, he wakes from his cursed sleep to find himself chained to the dungeon walls. With his mate at the mercy of his Lord, the house he’d thought had abandoned him comes to his rescue. Can he make things right before it’s too late? Or will he lose his true love to the hands of a traitor?

Chapter One

Malek growled, his senses coming alert all at once as the curse let him free from its grasp.

Her scent infused him; she smelled of desire and need. Her lips tasted of eagerness and something he hadn’t tasted in decades…

Innocence.

Could it really be? His eyes snapped open. Could Sharra still be an innocent? The thought excited his senses and deepened his desire.

He rolled over pinning her to the mattress. She’d been warned to stay away until he rose for the evening, yet the stubborn woman refused to obey the simplest of commands. If his Sire hadn’t given him leave to take a keeper of his very own, Sharra would be in serious danger for the stunt she’d just pulled. Raven House law stated that a woman had no rights of her own. Any woman found in the house after the sun set was fair game for any vampire male who found her. Obliged by rules older than time to obey their every wish and whim. An unbound female found in a male’s room was fair game for all.

He’d decided within moments of being granted permission to choose a keeper that Sharra would that person, in effect keeping her safe under his protection from the other men in the house. As his keeper she would finally belong to him but until then she was at risk if found in his bed.

A slow throaty chuckle escaped his throat he’d always wanted a human lover he could bite into orgasmic bliss and she had just granted his wish with one bold move. Seeing her surprised expression, he grinned evilly. “Good evening Sharra.”

“Malek, you’re awake!”

“You sound surprised pet! I must say this is definitely the nicest way I’ve been woken in ages. But you know this isn’t where you were told to meet me.”

A frown caressed her lips at his grin. He knew she hated being ordered about.

“I’m no one’s slave Malek and I missed you.”

“No you certainly aren’t that Sharranna. But you could be mine! I wouldn’t object in the least.”

“Why you vile, disgusting, despicable excuse for a man.”

“You have no idea my pet, none whatsoever, how vile I can be.” He released his hold on the desire he felt for her and kissed her again. He expected no resistance since she’d entered his chambers and his bed freely, and he didn’t receive any.

Five years of waiting and wanting were set free in her one act of defiance. His hands roamed eagerly down her side to her thigh, slipping under the dress she wore and climbing back up to rest on her hip. Her dress bunched above his left hand, his right holding her chin steady while he plundered her mouth kissing the breath out of her.

You can find blurbs and excerpts of my all my stories at http://www.alinedechevigny.com along with some free reads, contests and in progress works.

Satisfaction Guaranteed by Isabelle Drake

 Satisfaction Guaranteed

By Isabelle Drake
Workaholic accountant Elizabeth Sewell needs a man. According to her well-laid-out lifeplan, it’s time to find Mr. Right and move on to the next phase of her life — married with children. The problem is, she’s been so busy working her way up the career ladder, she won’t spot Mr. Right even if he’s carrying a neon sign. So, being an organized businesswoman, she comes up with a strategy. She’ll hire a man to teach her what she needs to know to get what she wants.

Disillusioned attorney Jack Harley needs a distraction. He’s left behind a high-pressure job with a prestigious law firm in Dallas and he’s determined to get his life back on track by opening a private practice in Houston. When a sexy brunette mistakes his new office for the recently relocated escort service, he’s stunned silent by her request for a variety of men and experiences. But when she asks him if he’s man enough to uncover what turns her on, he finds his voice in time to accept the challenge.

EXCERPT 

A slice of Jack’s shoulder showed through the crowd as he spoke with one of the bartenders. Shadows slashed across his cheek, making his face stunning and dangerous. The other man shared an odd resemblance to Jack but that had to be the darkness playing tricks on her.

Elizabeth had known Jack less than a day and already she was comparing other men to him, as though he was the ultimate measure of what a man should be. 

 It didn’t make sense. Never in her daydreams had she ever thought she’d be attracted to the sort of man who worked as an escort. That was one of the reasons using the service seemed like a good idea.   A safe idea.  

Something about Jack didn’t match with what she would’ve expected from a man who got paid to take women out. Although they hadn’t had any serious talks, he seemed intelligent and thoughtful. Curious and diligent. Not personality traits she would have expected in an escort but ones she desired in a man.  

Elizabeth glanced down at the tattered label on her beer bottle only to look back and find Jack scant inches away.  He braced his hands on the wall and leaned so close that the lingering smell of leather drifted under her nose. 

 “Anybody bother you?” He pushed his arms upward and his muscles flexed. “You didn’t cause any more trouble did you?” Looming over her, he lowered his voice, “I think you’d like nothing better than to have every guy in this bar fighting over you.” 

Although his words were a challenge, his gaze was light and she smiled at his teasing. “Do I strike you as that kind of girl?” As he wrapped a strand of her hair around his fingers, his eyebrows pulling together. “I don’t think you know what kind of girl you are.” He let go of her hair and dropped his hand. “That’s what makes me so wary.” 

When she remained silent, he slipped one finger through her belt loop and yanked her to him. “I want you to keep me around long enough so that when you figure it out, I’ll get the chance to show you what kind of man I am.” He dropped his head to lightly cover her mouth, instantly sending

Elizabeth to that place where uncertainty ruled and plans were forgotten. She’d never kissed a man tasting of beer and smelling like smoke and leather. Jack Harley was raw sex appeal in blue jeans and she wanted more of him.

 But he drew back, so she reached for him with both hands. Wrapping her arms around his neck, she arched up and pressed into him until her peeked nipples brushed against his warm, solid chest.   She stared at his mouth, silently begging him to kiss her again. He pressed into her. “See something you want?”

St. Jude’s Hospital and The Wild Rose Press by Judith Rochelle

February 22, 2008 By: Jenn L Category: Latest News 6 Comments →

As a writer I am always more than grateful for the good luck I’ve had with my writing and more than appreciative of all my readers who support me. After all, without readers, nothing happens to the books and we’re just writing for ourselves. Many publishers feel the same way, thankful for all the readers who buy their books and continue to do so. It’s all about the support we receive from everyone out there.  

But you have to give something back, too, something to show that this isn’t a one way street and that we’re all willing to repay the good luck that comes our way. 

This year The Wild Rose Press and I are joining forces in a project to do just that. Having chosen St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis as their charity of choice, TWRP wanted to take one book, promote it for an entire year, and contribute all proceeds to St. Jude’s. That means they eat all the expenses and the editor, cover artist and I contribute our pay and royalties. No one is making a penny out of this except, we hope, St. Jude’s.  

When they asked me to write the book, I was more than flattered and set about it right away. The result is the gritty romantic suspense, ON THE RUN, which will release January 21 as an ebook and in February in print.  

When Robin Fletcher saw her sister brutally murdered by her wealthy, abusive husband, she followed her instinct and grabbed her five-year-old nephew, determined to protect him at all costs. Months later they are living in Memphis, with new names and a new life, when their sense of security is shattered. Andy is diagnosed with aplastic anemia and in a malevolent twist of fate, the killer has discovered where Robin, now Laura, is living. Can the doctor with whom she is rapidly falling in love protect her against the vicious man determined t kill her as he did her sister, or will she once again have to go ON THE RUN?

Happy Friday Junkies!!!

Today we welcome Judith Rochelle AKA Desiree Holt and she joining us to talk about a wonderful project she has going with WILD ROSE PRESS that will benefit St. Jude’s Hospital.

I hope that you’ll join us, for now here’s a little about Judith and her recent release ON THE RUN

I’ve had a lot of firsts in my life – first female sports report on The Michigan Daily at the University of Michigan; first woman to own a rock and roll agency in Detroit, the home of Motown; first woman president of the Pasco (Florida) Economic Development Council. 

  When my children were small, I satisfied my need for writing by working for weekly newspapers. I had a wild and wacky time managing rock and roll bands, then worked in fundraising, public affairs and community relations. But writing fiction was always my dream.

Now my wonderful husband, David, and I are retired. we live in the Texas Hill Country and I write full time. When I’m not writing I’m an avid reader – anything and everything – and watching football, especially my beloved Michigan Wolverines.

Promo… What’s too much? What’s not enough? by Bonnie Rose Leigh

February 20, 2008 By: Jenn L Category: Contests, Guest Blogger, Latest News 9 Comments →

I  hear so many conflicting thoughts by both readers and authors about what constitutes too much promo and what isn’t enough. I know I’m guilty of sending the same promo ad to multiple loops and I’m currently working with someone to help me change this. But as a reader, what type of promo makes you completely ignore it and what will tend to catch your eye, encouraging you to read more and to eventually buy the book if that’s what happens?

 

Would you rather participate in chats with the author or just go to a central place to read what he/she has out and coming soon? Although I’ve been published for a year now–Friday will mark my one year anniversary as a published author–I still find myself feeling like a small goldfish swimming in a shark infested ocean. Promoting my work, I feel, is harder and scarier than actually writing it.

So, readers and authors, what do you think about promo in general? And what would you like to see authors do more than they do now?

Thanks for having me here as a Guest Blogger. And thanks for letting me take up your time.

Happy Wednesday Junkies!!

So today we ahve Bonnie Rose Leigh joining us and she’ll be discussing promotion. It’s a topiuc every author knows well and to succeed must become versed in. So let’s learn a little more about Bonnie and her recent release TEMPERING ZOE.

Bonnie will randomly select three people from those that comment on this blog to receive one copy (PDF or LIT) of any one book title in her backlist, to include current releases.

Bonnie Rose Leigh has been in thrall with the written word since childhood. When she ran out of things to read, she created her own stories. Now, she is a multi-published, bestselling author and lives in a small town in Upstate, New York. She spends most of her time on the computer either writing or visiting with friends. When not busy on the computer, her free time is consumed with reading. It doesn’t matter what genre the book is either, though she is partial to romance novels. Her favorite after-hours hobby is sprawling in a chair with a book clutched in her hands and a cup of cocoa sitting nearby.

Bonnie would love to hear from each and every one of you. Make sure you subscribe to her monthly newsletter or check out her blog as it will be updated regularly with release dates, excerpts and online appearances. And, as always, feel free to drop her email if you have any questions, concerns or just want to chat, and she’ll get back to you as soon as she can.

 Tempering Zoe by Bonnie Rose Leigh

Zoe Daniels moved to the city, anxious to pursue her career and perhaps find a man to love her for who she is. When she finds out that her lover, the man she thought she’d spend the rest of her life with, is already married she leaves him and the city far behind. But she doesn’t leave alone–she’s pregnant with her ex’s child.
 
Enthralled with the quiet beauty that moved in across the hall from them, best friends Marcel Carson and Conn Brady watch her from afar. Both males want her for their mate and are just biding their time to make her their own. When her ex shows up in town, they know they can’t afford to wait any longer to claim her as their mate.
 
Will she listen to them when they tell her that not only are they shifters, but they want to claim her as their mate or will her fear that she’s making another mistake getting involved with them blind her to the danger they believe her ex has in store for her?
