My Monthly Contests!!!

OK, so I've been incredibly slack this month and have NOT updated my website. I know, I know... Pathetic, Lexxie. If I tell you both my husband AND daughter have been sick this month, will I be excused?? Pleeeease?

Anyway, I still ran a contest for August and if I'd been up-to-date, the following is what you would have found on my website.....Ready?

CONTEST #1 (Note the 1. There's another contest further down too!)

This month I'm giving not one but TWO books by Renee George (winner's choice). To be in the running, click on the following link (, read the excerpt and then answer this question: Who does the hunky stranger quote when kissing Erin?

Email the correct answer to me by 31st August.

Eight Ridiculous Questions With……… Renee George

This month Renee George subjected herself to the Questions (and I gotta say, she did a damn good job of them to, don't you think?)

Renee is the author of the intensely hot and erotically charged The Beast series, as well as the moving Black Thunder and wicked Twin Flame. Oh, and Deadly Sins: Avarice (which makes me all hot and squirmy when I read it! )

"The sex scenes are hotter than a box of firecrackers... The vampires in this story have some unique qualities that make them different from typical vampires found in many romance novels... Ms. George has created a fascinating world of unconventional vampires that I enjoyed reading about. The Beast: Taking Back Control is a keeper!"
-- Susan White, Just Erotic Romance Reviews

"Renee George is a talented story teller enticing you into a world of magic, wizards, spells, sex and love. [She] takes me away from reality into the world she has woven with all those magical words to hook me in!"
-- Wendi, Fallen Angel Reviews

2. Are you a moaner, a screamer or completely silent? (You know what I mean ) Yes, yes, and no. LOL

4. Ever tried cross-dressing? LMAO, yes.

7. Weirdest place you've ever 'done it'? A cemetary, lol. When my DH and I were dating, we went parking in a cemetary that was supposedly haunted. It was some spooky, titilating fun. *grin*

8. If you were a vegetable, which would you be and why? Broccoli. It's the worlds most perfect veggie, lol. Tasty and chalk full of neccessary vitamins and minerals. I like to think of myself in the same way. LOL.

David Tennant.

I still can't pin-point WHAT exactly makes me go all squirmy, wet and horny over David Tennant. I know he's not a drop-dead gorgeous hunk like Brad Pitt. I know he's not a dangerous, Omega like Huge Jackman (OK, when he's in Wolverine mode, not Peter Allen). But damn it, he pushes ALL my buttons.

I first discovered him in the BBC drama/comedy Cassanova, about the famous Italian lover called... well, Cassanova, funnily enough. I used to melt each night I watched it and my husband got lucky each night AFTER I watched it. Then Tennant took over the iconic role of Dr Who, that most famous Time Lord (a character I have grown up with) and I fell irretrievably in lust. If he turned up at my door and said "Come with me, Lexxie" I'd float out the door and not think twice about it (well, OK, maybe twice *grin*).

He just commands the screen. There's a playfulness to him that is infectious and a 'don't piss me off or you'll be sorry' edge that makes his sexiness just that little bit aggressive. If you haven't seen him in anything yet, try and catch an episode of Dr Who. I think (if my internet trawling is correct) the Sci-Fi Channel in the US is scheduled to run the latest series. If you can't do that, just sit and stare at his image for a while. I know I do. Often! *grin*

Want a more objective bio?

David Tennant is the stage name of David MacDonald, (born 18 April 1971 - Wow!! Only FOUR days after me!!!) a Scottish actor, from Bathgate, West Lothian, best known as the tenth actor to portray the Doctor in the television series Doctor Who.
Already a well-known theatre actor, he achieved wider fame in the United Kingdom for his TV roles in Casanova and Doctor Who. International audiences know him best for playing Barty Crouch Jr. in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
In December 2005, The Stage newspaper listed Tennant at #6 in its "Top Ten" listing of the most influential UK television artists of the year, citing his roles in Blackpool, Casanova, Secret Smile and Doctor Who. In January 2006, readers of the British gay and lesbian newspaper The Pink Paper voted Tennant the "Sexiest Man in the Universe" over David Beckham and Brad Pitt. A poll of over 10,000 women for the March 2006 issue of New Woman magazine ranked him 20th in their list of the "Top 100 Men".

I had to share the almost complete cover of my next Changeling Press release, Shadow Whispers, cause it's sooooooo beautiful. As soon as I write a blurb for the book, I'll post it (and a snippet to tease you). But ya just gotta love that art work, doncha. Zuri (the artist) is a talented genius!

I'm going to come back to this one, cause I'm exhausted and am just about to go to bed, but having received a new review for Deadly Sins: Anger that mentions the amount of sex scenes in the book as excessive, I'm wondering.... when does lots of sex become TOO much?

Thoughts anyone?

Does Anyone Ever Come Here?


Let me know if you do. Pleeeease?


OK, so life has been pretty crappy of late. My daughter has been very sick with an ear infection that turned nasty and moved to her chest, my husband has been battling the flu which - like all men *grin* makes him very grumpy - and because both are unwell I've been stupidly sleep-deprived so my writing has suffered. In fact, I'm so over deadline on my latest WIP I think my editor (the very wonderful Chrissie) is close to jumping on a plane to strangle me personally. Added to all that, I've been going through a period of self-doubt: am I really a writer or just kidding myself? The kind of paranoia that ALL writers experience, I know, but this hit me while tired, stressed and suffering PMS - not a good combination to be sure. So, yesterday morning - after the night from Hell with a very sick and unhappy Peanut - I shuffled out to the kitchen, eyes burning from another night without sleep, checked my email and found this review from Suni at Just Erotic Romance Reviews.....

Ira McKenzie has never been able to control his anger. It has gotten him into so much trouble over the years, but he could not seem to change, until Ricki entered his life. Suddenly, Ira found peace. It was unexplainable, but Ira’s more than willing to toss reason aside and go along with his newfound happiness. Then Shahla and the Agrippa ruined it all. Shahla was just as deadly as she was attractive and Ira could not resist her. However, if Ira planned on having a life with Ricki he had to find a way.

“Jesus save me” was the first words that came to my mind while reading Deadly Sins: Anger. Lexxie Couper had me so scared, I felt like cowering in my closet with a blanket over my head. Then I had to rethink that idea, because the closet was too dark for my liking. Believe me when I say that Lexxie Couper’s tale will singe your eyebrows. The Agrippa wielded its power on unsuspecting mortals and their libidos as only a being from hell could. If that was not enough to make my pulse race, Ricki and Ira went at each other numerous times and with a fierceness that I could only envy. I was dealing with a double-edged sword, because while the sex was outstanding, the plot was frighteningly scary. Luckily, I read Deadly Sins: Anger during daylight hours. I’m positive nightmares would have assaulted me otherwise. The Agrippa and Shahla were scary enough to cause King Kong to tuck tail and run. I was elated and surprised that Ira and Ricki stood their ground. These two characters had more backbone than any I’ve ever read before, and that is saying something. They were unforgettable and totally believable. Everything happened fast for them, but never did I question their relationship. Their attraction for one another was instant and they did not hesitate to act upon their feelings in the most intimate of ways. Fate brought them together, but their connection was what kept them satisfying each other mentally and physically. Man, did Ira and Ricki go at it, a number of times. The sex sizzled just as much as their love. Their time together was frantic with hints of desperation that caused me to turn the pages faster. Several times, I was terrified their relationship would not survive, but I had the same thoughts about their lives. They faced incredible danger and a powerful nemesis, which made me root for them even harder. I could only hope that Ira’s anger might work in his advantage, just once. The villains were just as intense. Shahla did not believe in mercy. If she thought for one second that Ira had no more fight in him, she would have used that to her advantage. Speaking of Shahla, she was one insidious creature. I’m sure I have never read about anyone like her, and I am proof positive that this was one experience I do not want to relive. I have to congratulate Ms. Couper on her creation of Shahla. To have a character that is so powerful that she transcends paper is a testament to how brilliant of a writer she is. It does not hurt that I did not see poor grammar or incorrect spellings throughout the story, bravo to Ms. Couper and her editor.

All of the characters in Deadly Sins: Anger were tremendous. No way will I forget them anytime soon. I am sad to see them go, but happy at the same time. My heart could only take so much. The plot of Deadly Sins: Anger was dynamic and the sex was thrilling. I could not have asked for anything more. My meal was served to me on a silver platter and I am most appreciative. I just might die if I read this story again, but I certainly plan on it. Deadly Sins: Anger deserves every accolade I have bestowed upon it, especially the Silver Star Award.

Suffice to say, my jaw hit the kitchen bench, I rubbed my tired eyes to be sure I wasn't seeing things, and then - when I realised it was true - did the Fruit-Bat Flap of Delight!! If there is one this that will restore my very fragile self esteem, it's a great review. For those that don't know, A JERR SILVER STAR AWARD award is presented to ... "those exceptional short books consisting of 100 pages or less. The ones the reviewer feels she won't forget because of its exceptional quality. It engaged the senses in a way that she became the story, that she couldn't lay it down and would return time and again. These books are the best of the best." (

I was speachless. Truly, I was. The grin still hasn't left my face.

I need to thank four very speacial people - Chrissie, my editor who knows more than I ever will, Emma Ray, my invaluable sounding board who tells it exactly like it is, Renee, my soul-sister who I discovered during the course of writing Anger, and my husband who sat up with me some nights until 2am to read scene after scene. To the Magic Four - I love you ALL!!
