THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

Franny, our heroine's hapless BFF after a pretty regular date for her!:
'His name's Eugene and he lives with his mother. They breed ferrets. Inside the lounge room. None of which I realised until I did the walk of shame this morning. Past his mum. Who had folded my clothes into a neat pile on the chesterfield —'

http://www.iheartpresents.com/Today I'm over at I Heart Presents talking about cars. Flash cars.  the kinds of cars my heroes drive.

I know next to nothing about cars, but have been known to sneakily snap photos of cars I think would be fun in a book if I see them out and about!  And since the heroine in my latest Harlequin Presents book, THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, is the PR manager for a luxury car company...well their new signature car had to be somethign special indeed.

To find out which car inspired the Pegasus Z9, head on over to I Heart Presents now!

http://pinkheartsociety.blogspot.com.au/Today I'm over at the Pink Heart Society with a coveted Male on Monday slot.

I love a casting me a hero, finding an image, or a series of that capture the mood of the man, and the "casting" of Dax Bainbridge in  THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT was one of the easiest yet.

Wondering who that man might be?  Head on over to the Pink Heart Society today.  There's art ;).

THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

Awww...


She licked her lips, and squirmed a little when she couldn’t see him, then jutted out a hip in defiance when it appeared to occur to her he might not be there. Then, just as her mouth began to turn down at the edges, her eyes finally found his; feisty, fierce, and wholly corrupting.  As a secret smile spread to her lips, the heat in her eyes softened to a subtle warmth.  It rocketed him right back to how luminous she’d been in his arms.He hadn’t been recalling wrong.She was dazzling.

Here's our beautiful new addition to the family...Mork.

Mindy wasn't in the mood for photographs - as is a woman's right - when this pic was taken, but she's just as sweet.

They are Kakariki parrots, really friendly birds who make quiet kissy chatter noises.

The plan is for them to have a great romance and many babies.  But if they remain just good friends that's ok too.  So long as they're happy, right?[image error]

"Like"For those of you following Arabella Rose 's adventures via Facebook, I hope you're having as much fun watching her journey as I am!
 
The food, the shopping, the men...  The girl honestly hasn't had a moment's respite!  But I think she's handling herself with poise and grace, especially considering her history with falling into fountains, and falling for ungettable men.

For those of you yet to jump on board, head on over to her Facebook page and " like " her today to get daily updates on her romantic adventures.

As of today she's halfway through her 50 days and I promise, the fun's only just begun ;).

"Like" Arabella on Facebook.

The Secret Wedding Dress
I love that knock at the door that heralds a delivery of author copies of a book!  Especially the first edition thereof, as there are always fun little things you don't expect.

Like a lovely reader quote on the back cover:

"I love Ally Blake's books - always sexy and sensual!" said Teresa from Weston-super-mare.  
Or the excerpt chosen for the front of the book.  Here's the one (edited a mite to fit)  to be found in THE SECRET WEDDING DRESS which arrived at my place today:



Through gritted teeth Paige muttered, “That's it.  I hereby promise to throw myself upon the mercy of the next man who smiles at me.  I need to get some man time and fast.  Deal?  Deal.”“Hold the door,” said s deep male voiceHe loomed into view, a stranger, a great big broad one, his bulk blocking her view of the foyer entirely.  Head down, brow pinched into a frown, he stared intently at the shiny smart phone in his spare hand.As she  presse herself deeper into the small lift her eyes flickered over a well-worn chocolate-brown leather jacket  with thick dark hair curling over the wool-lined collar.  Over soft denim lovingly hugging masses of muscle, down to huge scuffed boots.   Big and brawny he was, with dark shadowed eyes and stubble long past designer on a jaw that could have been cut from granite.The raw and unadulterated impact of the man sent her stomach into freefall, and colour rushed into her skin with a whoosh she could practically hear.  She had to swallow down the sudden urge to growl.Then a husky voice inside her head sent the stranger a silent plea:  Smile.
