Is he a Heartbreaker? #romance #giveaway


Thanks to Carrie Ann Ryan for organizing this amazing hop!

Are our heroes heartthrobs or heartbreakers? Or are they just the same thing? Yummy right? Valentine’s Day is just around the corner for this blog hop and we’re gearing up to see what exactly is a heartbreaker. Is the song playing in your head like mine? “Cuz he’s a heartbreaker!” We love those sexy men, but what about those times in the story when they aren’t perfect. Because come on, we know they aren’t perfect. What makes those men heartbreakers? What can those guys do to make it better? Is there a way to grovel? Come on! Tell me about your heartbreaker!!

Oh, those naughty boys. Breaking hearts left and right. I think in my books, my biggest heart breaker so far has got to be Craig from “Deployment Gifts.” (My short story in the Halloween Heat V Anthology). Oh that Craig. You see, he and Krista have been going in circles for years, with neither really willing to let go….and neither ready to take that final step.

But when things finally come to a head, well, let’s just say that Craig knows how to grovel. In the best way possible. 🙂

For this hop, I’m (Jennifer James) giving away a $5 Amazon giftcard to one lucky person who hits it in the Rafflecopter! To be considered for the Grand Prize drawing you *MUST* leave a blog post comment. The giveaway is open internationally, except for the swag pack, which will be open in the US/Canada 

Deployment Gifts Blurb: 

This Halloween, Krista is determined to make sure  her on again off again lover Craig gets a treat he’ll never forget. She’s decided its time to move on with her life and forget the sexy Army sergeant for good; but not before one last encounter that will involve her college roommate and sometimes lover Jade. Craig likes surprises, and he’s got one in store for Krista as well.

From Kenra:

Can’t wait to read “Deployment Gifts”, Jenn! I already know it’s as good as all your others! I’m tossing in a copy of “Blood Dragon 1: Safe Heart” to one lucky person who hits it in the Rafflecopter! To be considered for the Grand Prize drawing you *MUST* leave a blog post comment. The giveaway is open internationally, except for the swag pack, which will be open in the US/Canada.

My favorite Heartbreaker from my published books is the weredragon Kiellen from “Safe Heart”. He wants Jaden, knows she wants  him, but refuses her as a means of protecting her from a culture and government that forbids their love because she’s a vampire. By saving her, and himself, from the death penalty, has he doomed them to a worse fate?

****I just found out (2/11/2013 @ 12;30) that the Rafflecopter was broken! I am SO sorry. I wasn’t checking in everyday on the hop and had no idea….I’m trying to find an equitable solution for our website giveaway. I am willing to add everyone to the Rafflecopter for the max number of entries, but it takes about 5 minutes a pop.   I’m really very sorry and will  contact everyone via email regarding this issue. Please accept my most sincere apologies. I don’t want anyone upset that people who did not “do” the tasks in the Rafflecopter are getting their entries, but I also don’t want them left out since it wasn’t their fault.****

#Author Sabrina Garie: Hexing the HOT Into Your #Romance


Woohoo! It’s my critter pal Sabrina! I’m so excited that her new book is out and available for everyone to read and drool over. I got to crit this baby, and let me say that you all are in for a treat. 🙂 This is great stuff, and totally indicative of the type of amazing story you’ll be seeing from Sabrina in the future. She’s a new talent to watch for sure.

Hexing the hot into your romance:  A fire witch reveals her secrets

 

Being here with my critter Jennifer, one of the hottest writers on the planet, just knocks my…let ’s say socks, off.  Thanks for hosting me babe. ***You are totally welcome! –JJ*** My story Fires of Justice is part of Ellora’s Cave Hex Appeal series, which is a cornucopia of sexy witches and warlocks using their powers for naughty.  So I’m here to talk about how a witch hooks her man.

Eye of newt and bat wings are one way to brew up a romance.  But there are a few other tricks we mortals might be able to borrow along the way.

What hexes did my little witch, Calista, use to entice Cullen, her shifter?  Let’s peak into their bedroom.

 

Sex hex 1:       Let him know you want him.  Female desire is sexy.

When Calista’s aroused, Cullen explodes.

She may be playing cautious, but her scent, fiery and feminine, wet and floral, trumpeted just how much she wanted him. Her barely concealed passion scorched through the remaining ice, released his heart and hurled his appetites into free fall. His pants tightened and chafed around his rigid, throbbing cock.

 

Sex hex 2: Take an active role in foreplay.

Here’s our happy couple in the bedroom, for the first time.  Cullen’s taken off his shirt. Calista demands more.

“Keep going,” she urged, unable to keep her eyes to herself.

“Like what you see?” Button popped, zipper released, nothing underneath.

Yowza, she liked.

“You want it? Take it.” A rumble in his throat, he craved this as much as she did.

Sex Hex 3:      Tease and show no mercy.

Calista has this down to an art form. Cullen has no chance.

Skirt and boots off, she sat on the edge of her bed and rolled down each thigh-high to reveal tanned, toned flesh bit by bit. Naked, she lay back, head on hands, and opened her legs, offering up her clit for his next move.

 “Argenta’s boots, you’re not making this easy, witch.

Sex Hex 4:      Alcohol is good.

Calista gets Cullen in the mood.

 

“Take a seat. I need a drink, I’m getting you one and you’re going to drink it. You so need to loosen up.”

 

Sex Hex 5:      Don’t take no for an answer.

Calista knows what she wants and goes after it.

 

Calista kissed him fiercely, straddling her legs around him, rubbing until his cock stiffened.

“Argenta’s boots, this is not a good time.”

“Please. I think we need to do this. I want this.” She unzipped his jeans and massaged him expertly until he threw his head back and groaned.

Being a fire witch, Calista is pretty good at this sex stuff, it’s built into her elemental DNA as it were.  We all have places where we shine.  I’m giving away a free copy of my ebook (it is ebook only) to one commenter. How do you shine?—share one amazing thing about yourself.  Feeling shy?  I’ll start. I’m an awesome problem solver—I love puzzles and a problem is a puzzle.  Go on brag a little. You deserve it–we all do every now and then.  Thanks for dropping by.

Always read the fine print when swearing an eternal oath to gods and guardians…

Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.

Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.

Sabrina Garie is on a journey to create the most kick-ass heroine romance fiction has ever known and the hero who can take her. A believer that big, audacious goals spice up life, she relies on coffee, red wine and laughter to make those goals (and her characters) come alive. When not at the computer, she wrangles vegetables and extra helpings of homework into her star-spangled, fashion-loving progeny, kowtows to a fat cat and reads, a lot. Since it is more fun to travel in packs, come along for the ride. I’d love to chat.
