Hey guys!  See me waving.  Well, here we are again at blog day and, as usual, Kayce has nothing special to write about…no new book release, no big announcements, no duck stories…but I do have some recommendations for you.  Woo Hoo!

First, let me tell you about one of the best eating experiences of my life.  Today I met Cheyenne McCray, Jordan Summers, and Tina Gerow for High Tea at the Arizona Biltmore.  Holy freaking cow!!!  They have a High Tea Sommelier named Kevin who not only serves food and desserts to die for, but he entertains his customers at the same time.  What a show he put on!

First, Kevin gave us an extremely informed rundown of the fabulous teas that were available for us to sample.  Now, keep in mind that we’ve done high tea at several other top-tier resorts in the Phoenix area and most of them will bring you a pot of whatever tea you would like and you generally stay with it throughout the meal, sharing amongst yourselves.  But Kevin brought us at least 6 different teas to try and if we’d asked for 6 more, he would have brought that also.

Once we had our wonderful teas, out came two towers of to-die-for finger sandwiches, scones, and enough fabulous desserts to put you in a sugar coma!  I am telling you, we ate until we thought we’d split right in two.  And the entire time, Kevin is giving us the run-down on the food, the teas, the desserts—making recommendations on what we should try.  Keep in mind that at the other resorts we tried, high tea was a wonderful experience.  But Kevin truly made high tea at the Biltmore an adventure!  In fact, when one of us indicated that one pot of tea would be sufficient, Kevin said oh, no.  He wanted the whole adventure for us.  Now, how often does your server insist that you have the full adventure?  Uh…can you say never?

Now, any dining experience often involves a trip to the ladies room, and it can be a real adventure to find one in a large establishment like the Biltmore.  You flag down a server, ask where the ladies room is, and he/she will point in the direction of the hallway and tell you to take two lefts and a right…and you wander for 10 minutes trying to remember if it was two lefts and a right or two rights and a left.  Not at the Biltmore.  When I stood to go to the ladies room, I didn’t even have to ask.  Kevin stepped to my side and actually showed me the way.  He led me all the way to the last turn and then sent me on alone.  What a gem!!!

So long story short, if you ever want to experience the best High Tea in town, you call the Arizona Biltmore and make a reservation.  Kevin will make you feel like your table is the only one in the restaurant.  Tell him the authors sent you.  

Now, you might wonder what this has to do with blabs and bad dates…well, not a damn thing.  LOL  The blabs and bad dates are a whole other experience.  As you might have read a couple of weeks
ago, the Butterscotch Martini Girls have started doing a weekly Book Blab.  Only, so far, we haven’t talked about books much.  This week’s blab is on dating do’s and don’ts.  So follow this link and listen to our silly and strange dating stories.  I think you will enjoy it.  And for the first person who watches the blab and leaves me a comment here telling me what I was drinking this week (and you must be specific), I will give you a free eCopy of Loons of a Feather—or if you already have it, we will find an eBook from one of the other BMG’s that you don’t yet have.

Link to the Butterscotch Martini Girls Blab.

Well, that’s my story, delicious and delirious, and I’m stickin’ to it.  Hold on tight now ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!

Love ya,

How Did You Meet?

     I love opening a new romance novel and seeing how the hero and heroine meet for the first time. It can be sweet—hero and heroine see each other across a crowded ballroom and the world stops spinning for one shining moment. It can be surprising—hero sees neighbor or friend’s sister he hasn’t seen in a long time only to realize she’s grown from a gangly mischievous girl into a beautiful, desirable woman. It can be emotional—hero rides in on his charger (or in his Lamborghini) and saves the business or ranch or whatever the heroine fears losing in the nick of time (after, of course, he originally wanted to take it away from her). It can be fraught with danger—in my novel, A Good Man for Katie, Chase Hunter rescues Katie from certain death in a runaway stagecoach. Or humorous. Cases of mistaken identity abound as does being in the wrong place at the wrong time (though, it’s really the right place at the right time).
      There are countless ways our hero and heroine meet, but no matter how, we know, in our hearts, that only good will come of it. There will be that happily ever after we all crave (getting there, however, is a whole other story! And don’t we just love it!).
      Life very seldom imitates romance novels. People don’t usually meet like our heroes and heroines. Couples meet at work or through family. Maybe he's the mechanic who services your car. Or you met at a coffee shop (and he didn't get upset when you spilled coffee on him!). There are dating sites like and (I’ve known a few couples who married after meeting on these sites), professional matchmakers and helpful (mostly) friends, but sometimes, lightening does strike and you do find the person of your dreams in the most unusual way.
      Me? How did I meet my DH? Well, it wasn’t a case of mistaken identity, I can tell you that. And it definitely wasn't sweet or surprising. Actually, it was embarrassing. I called the man who was to be my future husband and told him that his first payment on his stereo was late (he had financed it where I worked). Imagine my mortification when I had to call him back and let him know I had been mistaken! Needless to say, he was not very happy with me, BUT he started coming into the office every month and paying in person until the stereo was paid off. And he kept coming bring me flowers or take me to lunch. One thing led to another and…..well….we’ll be married 35 years in January.
      So, what’s your favorite way for a hero and heroine to meet? And how did you meet your real life hero?

As always, happy reading!

11 Alpha Doms and Chance to Win a Kindle Paperwhite!

FEATURING Tropic of Pleasure 
by Tina Donahue


The one woman they shouldn’t want. Two Doms she can’t resist. A sizzling weekend beyond their wildest desires.

Bondage, submission, punishment, oh my. Cara’s wanted Hud and Ryder forever. They’re Alpha to the core and love a wicked good time, which has her ready to sign up for their brand of BDSM.

Although Ryder and Hud haven’t been immune to Cara’s charms, they don’t have a death wish—her billionaire daddy is a major investor in their high-end construction firm. When she insists it’s no problem and offers to be their sub, visions of blindfolds, collars and her sweet surrender dance in their heads, along with the longing they’ve fought.

Oh baby. The battle’s just begun during a smoking-hot weekend on a private island.

About Tina (You know you want to know!):

I’m an award-winning, bestselling novelist in erotic, paranormal, contemporary and historical romance for Kensington, Samhain Publishing, Ellora’s Cave, Siren Publishing, Booktrope, Luminosity, Decadent, and indie. Yay! Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Romantic Times and numerous online sites have praised my work, and trust me, I’m forever grateful for that. I’ve had my books reach finals in the EPIC competition, one title was named Book of the Year at a review site, and others have won awards in RWA-sponsored contests. I’m actually featured in the 2012 Novel & Short Story Writer’s Market. Talk about feeling like a freaking star. Before my writing career, I was the editor of an award–winning Midwestern newspaper and worked in Story Direction for a Hollywood production company. Outside of being an admitted and unrepentant chocoholic, I’ve flown a single-engine plane (scary stuff), rewired an old house using an electricity for dummies book, and have been known to moan like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally whenever I’m eating anything Mexican or Italian. Yeah, I like to eat (burp).

You can check me out here – yes, I am everywhere!  :-)

MASQUE by Lexi Post Re-released!

MASQUE has re-released at half the price! 

This is an erotic romance inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "Masque of the Red Death." I hope you enjoy!

Always, Lexi

Barnes & Noble:


Rena Mills plans to turn an abandoned abbey into a haunted bed-and-breakfast to prove she can be successful without her ex-fiancé. What she finds inside is Synn MacAllistair, the distinguished, self-proclaimed Ghost Keeper. Her dreams soon fill with sexual cravings for him. But are they dreams?

Synn, born in 1828, is determined to free the souls of the resident spirits, blaming himself for bringing the Red Death that killed them. When Rena steps into the old Pleasure Palace, he’s sure he can take her through the after-midnight Pleasure Rooms and stoke her passion to complete the Masque so the souls can cross over. Her innocent fire makes him crave more, but it’s far too late for him.

As Rena begins her erotic journey, her heart becomes more involved with every sensual caress until she discovers by completing the Masque she would lose her ghosts. Synn’s betrayal wars with her compassion for her ghostly friends. Torn, she must make a choice between her financial security and freeing seventy-three trapped souls. Either way, she could lose her Synn.
