So what is Burns' Night?


January is a cold dreich month in Scotland. The strains of Auld Lang Syne have long since drifted over the heather. We need to keep ourselves cheerful somehow. So on the 25th of January we celebrate the poetry of our bard, Robert Burns. 
We pipe in the haggis, toast it with a dram (whisky), eat it and then we consider the life of the man behind the poems. He was a bit of a ladies man for sure and so that is why the speech, known as “The Immortal Memory” is followed with a toast to the lassies and a reply from the lassies. There is poetry and singing and dancing to follow and we all stagger home with our bellies full, our hearts renewed and the knowledge that we only have another 11 months of rain to go this year.

Hot Hump Day Excerpt: The English Officer's Wife by Melody Stone

Thank you to Melody for this hot excerpt! Enjoy!

~~~Excerpt~~~

Matt was fed, bathed and snuggled into bed early. Rachel dropped off a scented candle as a gift, saying something about romance and ambience so Annie lit that and placed it on the chest of drawers next to the bed. With clean sheets and the bedroom curtains very slightly open, she stood back and admired her pretty bedroom.
With time to spare, she dropped a thick towel on the bathroom floor and edged her way into the deep, warm bathwater and laid back, closing her eyes. Swooshing the perfumed bubbles over her breasts, she enjoyed the silence and the feeling of the ripples on her skin.

Mike wouldn’t be back for a little while and with that thought, she slid her hands under the water and moved them down to the inside of her thighs. Annie, like many other army wives, had discovered the wonders of playing with herself. It was something that was much needed to get through the long weeks and months apart and ease the sexual frustration. It was also about the need of touch, the need to feel something. It was either that or an affair, which also happened many times on camp and not necessarily with other men. Annie knew exactly what area to touch and how to touch herself depending on her mood and need. Tonight she felt horny.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The life of an army wife can be lonely with the wives counting down the days until the husband’s return home to their quarters. Annie has always been the perfect English Officer’s Wife, but loneliness and boredom begins to affect her both physically and emotionally. Someone comes into her life for a brief moment and in an unexpected way reignite a passion that surprises and shocks her.

Hot Hump Day Excerpt: Not Another Soldier by Samantha Holt

Check out this hot hump day excerpt from our own Samantha! Not Another Soldier is currently only 99c on Amazon so do pick up a copy!
~~~~~~~~~Excerpt~~~~~~~~
Those slender fingers slip beneath my briefs and she curls them around me, causing me to buck my hips. I bite down on the crook of her neck, and she moans, tilts her head and gives me better access. I continue nipping along her smooth skin while she works her hand up and down me, as much as my jeans let her.
Muttering a curse, I lift my hips and shove my jeans and briefs down far enough to allow her more movement. I can’t even be bothered to remove them all the way. If I do that, I might have to lift her off me and, at the moment, I really don’t want to do that. Sienna is too hot and too stunning, all naked on top of me. It would probably kill me to be separated from that lush body for even two seconds.
But then… “Oh fuck.” She slides down and settles between my legs.
I know exactly what she’s going to do. I’m not entirely sure I can survive this. Her tongue darts out and licks across her bottom lip while she eyes me, just the way she always does when she’s having filthy thoughts. I would smile if I wasn’t trying so hard to maintain control. Sienna is so easy to read.
The heat of her mouth surrounds me, one luscious movement at a time. I feel her tongue on me, the tiniest scrape of teeth and I watch. Her gaze connects with mine, wide and lust filled. Holy shit, I have the hottest woman on the planet, totally naked, taking me into her mouth and staring at me completely unashamed. I feel a little like high-fiving myself. Go, Nick.
Jaw tense, I lean back against the couch and close my eyes. As much as I want to watch her, it’s too much. I will come way too early if I keep looking at her. So I enjoy the suck of her mouth, the searing wetness, and the play of her tongue over me.
Soon I can’t take anymore, so I grab her elbows and place her back on my lap. Sienna wastes no time impaling herself on me. She’s wet, I’m wet… I fit so perfectly inside her, it’s insane. I let out a harsh groan and she begins to move. I’m still pretty much fully clothed but her hands keep sneaking under my T-shirt and plucking my nipples. If I touch her too much, I don’t know that I’ll last much longer, so I hold her hips and help her ride me.
We don’t kiss. Just kind of stare at each other. I’m not stupid. I know this is only so amazing because I love her. It’s not kinky or creative or crazy sex, though it’s so hot. It’s just us and that’s what makes it so incredible. My heart feels like it wants to burst and poetic words come to mind—words the guys at base would rip into me for—but I can’t seem to get them out. So I look at her and hope I’m conveying it with my eyes.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've just buried my husband. I was going to divorce him and now he's dead.

After five years as a military wife, Sienna is moving on. She's keen to leave behind the misery of her marriage to Rob but for some reason the past won't let her go. It doesn't help that her closest friend, Nick, is also a soldier. Unfortunately Sienna is struggling to deny her attraction to the sexy marine, even knowing there can be no future in it. When the injured soldier admits he wants her just as badly, and has always wanted her, the fight to control her feelings becomes harder.

And now she's learning things about her late husband that surprise even her. When the secrets of Rob's life come to light, Sienna finds herself involved with some very nasty people and Nick is determined to protect her, no matter what.

As the danger grows to both her heart and her life, Sienna needs to decide if it was the army that was the problem or her late husband. Is Nick worth the heartache of being a military spouse again? And will he be able to protect her from the ring of drug dealers slowly closing in?

Author Interview: Eva Lindke

Please welcome Eva to our blog! She's telling us where she gets her inspiration and how to write the perfect hero!
What’s your name and where do you come from? Eva Lindke
Tell us a bit about your latest release. The Pink Cove Volume 1 was re-released in 2013 and Volume 2 will be out in June 2014
Where do you get your inspiration from? I started the series with a ‘Call for Submissions’ from Harlequin. When it was accepted I was excited. However the new genre was cancelled and I was left with a manuscript and crushed dreams. So I said the heck with it and published it myself.
How do you go about creating the perfect "Swoon" worthy man? Every woman’s fantasy is different so though my novels have two male characters. One main and one secondary. The males are distinctly different one muscular and big and one trim fit but thinner.  One barbaric in his manners and one sweet and quiet. But in bed both are gentle while being rough. It’s a unique mix to make the two men distinctively different.
Do you have a favourite character from your books? Why are they your favourite? I can’t help but love Lela. She came into the story half way through but she is just an amazing spirit girl. Who is beautiful and hides it. I think there is a little Lela in everyone.
What do you do to unwind and relax? Drink wine and watch old BBC movies like Pride and Prejudice.
What’s your greatest weakness? Always wanting to be helpful and filling my life with being busy instead of stopping and enjoying it.
What trait do you find the sexiest? It’s just in the way a man looks at you and you know he finds you attractive.
How do you decide how hot or not your book is going to be? Will all my novels the story tells itself. But I find that in this series if I am struggling then I need to put a hot scene in to spice it up.
Is there any erotic scenarios you wouldn’t write about? I believe in freedom to be who you are in religion, and life experiences. I would love to have more same sex scenes to bring the story behind the Pink Cove to life. However I don’t feel I could do those scenes justice. So they are the only ones I won’t write at this time.
Is the stuff you write about from experience or mostly imagination? Mainly imagination. I imagine what would shock people and then put that into the book.
What’s your idea of a perfect romantic evening? I love Friday night Pizza night where my guy and I sit at home eat pizza, drink adult beverages and watch movies.
What do you do to get in the mood for writing love scenes? Candles, music etc? Interesting question, nothing really. I think about the scenes coming up for a day or two and then just write. The problem is when I write I tend to do it for hours.
Tell us something that might surprise our readers. I surprise myself that I can write these types of books. I have always thought of myself as well quite prudish and conservative. If you told me twenty years ago I would be writing these books I would have laughed and possibly cringed. With age comes wisdom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A new emerging Southern New Jersey author, Eva Lindke is taking the Romance field by storm. Her novels fall into a category of their own, sultry. Her sultry novels are not as extensively graphic as erotic but hotter than what is normally considered steamy romance novels.
Eva is a unique mix of quiet restraint with a wild mind of romance and seduction. She is a unique individual who is turning out romance novels that are amazing and keep the reader on track.
The Pink Cove series is the Pinnacle of the sultry novel genre. It is a unique and racy private club where people either fear it or desire to be a part of it. The Pink Cove allows you to be free to experience your greatest desires without the fear of persecution for “normal” society.
Eva Lindke developed this genre out of a realization that a category of readers where not being reached. Now she is becoming more in demand and her readers can’t wait for the next installment of The Pink Cove clan to be released. Because of the genre Eva is somewhat of a recluse and only steps out from behind her computer or other devices for a few rare book appearances. But one look at Eva and you realize that she is as unique as her characters.
Eva loves to travel to new exotic locations but often favors those places surrounded by warm tropical water.

Hot Hump Day Excerpt: The Layover by C. V. Madison

Thanks to C.V. for this hottt M/M excerpt from The Layover, part of the Buckle Down anthology. Read on for some yummy goodness!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Excerpt~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hovering near his ear, Wilder nipped at Locke's lobe. "Is this what you like? Hmm?" His voice was low and gritty. Locke shuddered in response. Something about a low voice purred in his ear like that just did terrible things to him.
"I like it when you talk to me like that."
Nails raked lightly over his shoulders, drawing down the undersides of his arms and across his chest and belly. "Like this? All intimate-like with me tellin' you about all the things I wanna do with you?"
Yes. Exactly like that. With that growl in his ear. All he could do was whimper and then moan in response. His skin tingled before the burn set in the pinked lines drawn on his skin. He wanted to prattle on about all the things he wanted. Most of the one night stands or summer loves he picked up were usually vanilla in their approach.
This, however. This.
It scratched an itch, one he wanted filled with everything they could squeeze into one night. He wanted to hurt a little tomorrow to prove it hadn't all been a very nice dream. He wanted those work-rough hands all over his body. More specifically, he wanted one of them on his ass and the other in his hair. Pull his head back, fill him full and fuck him hard. And once they'd had either a little sleep or a little rest, do it all over again

All the foreplay was damned good frosting on his kinky happy cake.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Her Dream Cowboy by Samantha Holt

Talked into experiencing ranch life for herself by her best friend, Sophie comes all the way from England to Nevada, alone. But while her friend may have abandoned her, her guide for the week promises to stick close to her side.

A guide who just happens to be an honest to goodness, sexy cowboy.

Luke Harper is a busy man. He’s dedicated years to turning his ranch into a successful holiday business and he’s yet to find a woman who can deal with the realities of dating a cowboy. In his experience, they’re all after a dream. But Sophie proves too tempting for her own good and Luke can’t help wondering if the gorgeous woman would be willing to give him a chance.

Or is she just looking for a dream cowboy too?

The Layover by C.V. Madison (M/M erotic cowboy romance)

Security expert and avowed city boy Reno Locke drops into The Meeting Place for a little loving to fill his off hours. Country boy Wilder Henderson swings through to blow off a little steam after winning a rodeo competition. Locke finally works up the nerve to hit on Wilder and Locke takes Wilder back to his room. He finds out this urban cowboy is just what he was looking for during The Layover.

Faith, Hope, and Charity by J.T. Seate

In the old west, a young couple have plotted a future rendezvous for any chance of a life together, if only poor Johnny isn’t gunned down first by Faith’s father who is out for the cowboy’s blood.
