Eve Devon | Top TV Duos and #Giveaway
Author Guest / July 19, 2016

Hi Everyone! I’m Eve Devon and I’m here to celebrate the release of my romantic suspense: HEART OF STEEL. I have to tell you that writing alpha-geek Adam Steel and his assistant, reformed-rebel Honeysuckle Hawk, was an absolute pleasure. Born out of the complicated working relationships I love to see developing, Adam and Honeysuckle already have a tentative friendship. You know the kind I mean – the sort of relationship where without paying too much attention, the couple working so closely together, have fallen into a certain rhythm. They know each other’s habits. Each other’s foibles! And there’s an unwritten understanding between them, forged from an outstanding chemistry… Yep, I’m an absolute sucker for this kind of duo. Whether it’s a romance or a bromance, the myriad shifts in these types of relationships are exciting to witness. There are plenty of wonderful examples of complicated working relationships in books and films, but I’ve chosen my top three TV duos (because getting to watch these couples work out what they mean to each other week on week is fabulous entertainment). No. 1 Josh Lyman and Donnatella Moss from The West Wing During the nineties it seemed like the whole world was…

Hayson Manning | Dreamy and Not So Dreamy Jobs
Author Guest / July 19, 2016

I loved writing Sophie in BOUND TO THE BOUNTY HUNTER. How cool to be a female private investigator. It also got me thinking. When I was little I dreamed of being a flight attendant. I’d fly to glamorous places, eat exotic food and flit away the days at beaches with talc sand. A charming prince would whisk me back to his castle and I’d live happily ever after. Oh, to be under ten again. The reality is flight attendants work extremely hard, and zoom around in a tube of metal that could potentially crash. I salute you flight attendants. That career choice was scratched off my list pretty darn quick when I took my first flight at eighteen. Olympic show jumping on my pony Chevy was pretty high on my list when I was twelve. How on earth I thought my 14.2 hand high pony or I would get over one jump is baffling. We would have ploughed through every jump. Scratch that for The Chevers and me. There was one person I knew who was living his dream. My brother, Bix. He’d come home from university chatting about the most amazing rocks. Bix took to rocks like I took…

Sarah Ballance | 4 Unconventional Erogenous Zones
Author Guest / July 19, 2016

We’ve all heard of these. Magic buttons, or at least spots that can lead to magic. And while they’re a bit of a cliché, there’s also some science behind them. Even better, for those of us who like to be amused, there’s some side notes science forgot. And here they are. Ear nibbles. Shivery and delicious, right? But equally awesome are sweet nothings, such as “You’re beautiful” and “I’ll load the dishwasher tonight.” There’s also nothing wrong with “Do you mind if I clean the entire house” and “I’ll take the kids for the day so you can do absolutely nothing.” (If there are any men reading this, let me assure you those last two are next level erogenous. You’re welcome.) Better known as the nape of your neck, though I’m not sure where the other napes are. People just like to specify, I guess. Anyway, there are a bunch of nerve endings there that are supposed to make nape touches amazing, and that’s probably why accidentally pulling hair out with a pony tail holder hurts so much. Which brings me to this: hair pulling should be done by the fistful. Which should be an erogenous zone by itself. A…
