Our Sexy Thanksgiving? Not really, but I DO have a Special Announcement for My Sexy Saturday

Image
Gentle Readers,
How are you feeling today? Alas, I feel like crap. I have had what I think must be the flu all week. How is it possible for eyeballs to sweat?
Nevertheless, after being scarce not just on my blog but from social media in general while I wrote one novel, edited another, and worked 45-50+ hours at my soul-sucking day job, I was determined to participate in this week's "My Sexy Saturday" blog hop!

The theme this week: "Our Sexy Thanksgiving"
"We know what you’re thinking. Thanksgiving is about families. What’s more sexy than family? After all each started with a story about a man and a woman finding each other and deciding on a family. Think of all the wonderful romances that happen at this time of year. You know the ones we’re talking about. Sister brings home friend, brother falls for friend and on and on.

"So this week show us all the characters love family. Maybe it’s someone who doesn’t have one and suddenly they find themselves with o…

Cocktails with Scarlet Hawthorne: Writing the Heroine of DEADLINE Plus TWO Giveaways!

Image
Good evening, dear readers!
Thank you for joining me for my Happy Hour feature, Cocktails with Colette, which I have on Thursday evenings occasionally to introduce you to my author friends. Normally, I use a picture of a dirty vodka martini, but in honor of my guest tonight, I am sharing a postcard for St~Germaine, as Scarlet Hawthorne's favourite drink is the St~Germaine Cocktail (which is quite yummy, I must admit - recipe below in "Meet the Author" - use champagne). So pour the cocktail of your choice as I introduce our guest.

Scarlet is currently in the middle of the blog tour for her new release Deadline, and she joined me for Coffee last month for the cover reveal. Part romance, part mystery, and part police procedural, Deadline has been on Amazon's "Hot New Release" lists since its debut! In honor of this, Scarlet is offering an additional giveaway here on Cocktails in addition to the blog tour giveaway for three signed paperbacks. Just leave a commen…

Sensual Seducer or Alpha-Male: Coffee with SOULFIRE author Juliette Cross!

Image
Good morning, dear readers!
I hope you are drinking coffee with chicory this morning because I am hosting another Louisiana author this week! Last week we visited with Scarlet Hawthorne for the cover reveal of her new novel Deadline. (Scarlet will be back for Cocktails on Thursday.) Today I am excited to have Juliette Cross back! She was here having Coffee for the cover reveal of Forged in Fire (be sure to check it out if you missed it), and this morning she is here with her highly-acclaimed Soulfire, the first installment of her Nightwing Series.
This morning she is here to talk about a subject after my own heart: the hero of a romance novel! She compares the "sensual seducer" with the alpha-male. Personally, I prefer a hero who begins as a sensual seducer and becomes an alpha-male! In the magical world she has created, I think Juliette has nailed it with Lucius. You have got to read this story to decide for yourself! Which kind of hero do you prefer?

A Sexy First ~ The First Kiss from ALICIA'S POSSESSION ~ My Sexy Saturday

Image
Greetings, dear readers!
Last week I lent my blog to Scarlet Hawthorne to showcase her book Deadline, which had just been released that very day. I cannot lie: Her excerpt last week for "Date Night" was far spicier than mine!
This week, I have an excerpt from my own novel Alicia's Possession. Scarlet, George Sanchez, and I were at the Louisiana Book Festival together, and I couldn't get over how many readers wanted the paperback of Alicia's Possession. Usually eBooks are more popular, so as a reminder, Alicia's Possession IS available in all eBook formats, as well as audiobook and paperback. In fact, I can even sign your eBook!
When I saw the theme of this week's My Sexy Saturday was "Sexy Firsts," I immediately thought of the first kiss in Alicia's Possession. So here you have it - Seven sentences for this sexy Saturday! I hope you enjoy!

This week, the theme is "Date Night," and this tiny excerpt from Scarlet is during the second (or maybe possibly con…
