Like many Americans, I did not get a lot of sleep last night. Unlike many Americans, it was not because of the election. I did not watch any coverage…the ballots were cast and I have no interest in watching political pundits and newscasters guess about the outcome. I’d rather wake up and see how it all played out. So if you candidates won, congrats! If they lost, my condolences. But there is good news for all of us: IT’S OVER! (Why was I up so late? Helping my daughter study for a test on Ancient Rome and then reading Roxanne St. Claire’s BAREFOOT IN THE RAIN…which is wonderful!)
But now I can go back to watching TV without the DVR so I don’t have to scroll through commercials! (Okay, I’ll probably still do that because I hate commercials.) I don’t have to ignore my land line when it rings (Okay, I’ll probably still do that, too…my voicemail on my phone actually says, “If you really want to talk to me, send me an email.”)
But the bottom line is this: it’s done and we can all get back to reading books!
On that note, I have a FREE book for those of you who read on a Kindle or a Kindle app (which is also free!) It’s the third in my Phantom series…KISS OF THE PHANTOM.
First, I love this cover. The look in the guy’s eyes is so intense and perfect for my hero, Rafe Forsyth, a cursed half-Gypsy with a dark secret. Rafe is probably one of my favorite heroes ever. He has a dark past, but isn’t too brooding. He’s resourceful and funny and more than a match for my heroine, Mariah Hunter, a female Indiana Jones who is on the run from some seriously dangerous men. And though it’s the third book in my series, I think it can stand alone (though it’s better read with the other two…which are currently on sale for only 99 cents!)
In the paranormal realm, my books are kind of paranormal-light. There’s definitely magic, but it has rules and consequences. (Insert Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin’s reedy voice saying, “Magic has a price, deary!”)…there are no vampires or zombies or complex world-building needed–not that these things aren’t awesome…it’s just not in this book. There’s tons of action, hot sex and probably the most emotional storyline I’ve written in this kind of book. It’s very contemporary, so I hope you’ll give it a try…it’s FREE!!
Speaking of dark, brooding heroes…who is your favorite on TV right now? There are so many to choose from! Oliver Queen on ARROW is my current fave…great backstory, super-kick-ass, adorable as all get-out. Hook on ONCE UPON A TIME (though I’m so glad Emma turned the tables on him last episode…she’s such a fabulous heroine…very much like my Mariah.) And if you don’t watch TV, what about books or movies?
Yes…the perfect way to spend our post-election day…talking about MEN!
