Talking Hot Cowboys With Em Petrova Featuring Reining Men

Hot cowboys and sizzling romance is how I describe Em petrova's Reining Men series. She has a way of bringing to life hard working men and I can't get enough of her heroes! Want a taste? Well, I've invited her over today to share her latest release and to give an excerpt. Keep reading to for that sample and if you'd like to leave a comment, Em loves to hear from readers!

Reining Men

There’s no escaping ranch policy—anything to please a lady…

The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 3

The Boot Knockers Ranch caters to women in all ways. And now rookie Paul is officially part of the team. He’s had six months to hone his skills with the ladies and prides himself on being a prime catch. 

Jack would agree. He can’t get the rugged cowboy out of his system. He wants Paul in his bed more than anything, but his best friend has always been resistant to relations with other men. Jack’s instinct says different, but he values Paul’s friendship too highly to push it.

Then Jack takes on beautiful new client Lissy Lofton and finds himself falling hard for the confident show jumper. He’s not the only one. Lissy has caught Paul’s attention, and the attraction is mutual. 

But now Jack has a problem. Lissy’s sexual appetite is so ravenous, he doubts he can last the week without backup. Which presents an irresistible opportunity to invite Paul into their bed—where the incandescent heat brings all their walls tumbling down.

Warning: Contains two smoking-hot cowboys whose drive to please the same woman spurs a desire to please each other. 


“This lower lip is as ripe as a juicy peach. And this upper one”—he dragged his thumb over the rounded edges—“is a man’s wet dream.”
His dirty words spiked her desire. She wrapped her fingers around his strong wrist. Wide, sprinkled with light hairs, warm from the sun. Damn, she wanted to touch his every inch. For a week, Jack was hers to worship.
And she planned to take total advantage and make the big fee worth it.
His lashes lowered over smoldering eyes the color of sea glass. As a child she’d gathered the remnants from the beach and kept them in a little wooden box her parents had given her. What had happened to that collection?
Who cared? Now she had a new kind of sea glass to admire.
Jack tipped closer until the brim of his hat bumped her forehead. With a warm chuckle, he nudged it up. “Hat on or off, Lissy?”
Her mind bounced around the question. What did she want her first kiss to be like? He was allowing her to choose her path. Her heart swelled with the knowledge of her own power.
“On,” she whispered, her voice a stranger’s.
He angled his head, nose brushing hers. She filled her lungs with his scent—leather, man, hay. All the things she adored clinging to one perfect cowboy.

Guest Author Lacey Danes Featuring Storm Clouds

Happy Hump Day! Today author Lacy Dane is here to share a delicious recipe and a little bit about her latest release, Storm Clouds. The cover is beautiful and I, for one, have already added this title to my collection of reads for 2015. 

Grab a cuppa something good and join us for a bit!

Welcome, Lacy!

Thank you so much for having me here today to promote Storm Clouds and talk... talk.

I thought I would continue the recipe theme going for the new year. Santa delivered me a slow cooker. Something I have always wanted to try but have not yet.

Yesterday I tried my very first recipe:

3 onions (red or yellow) Sliced into strips.
4 cloves of garlic smashed and peeled.
1 three inch piece of ginger cut up into thick parts
one bay leaf.

Chicken thighs bone in (remove the skin)

1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of chicken stock
1/4 cup of vinegar ( I used a mix of balsamic and white wine but you could
use any)
1 heaping tablespoon of honey.

Put onion, garlic, ginger, & by leaf in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Add the chicken thighs.

Whisk together the soy, stock, vinegar, and honey.

Pour over the chicken and set the cooker on high for 5 hours.


If you have other slow cooker recipes that you love I would love to hear

Now on to my new story.
Storm Clouds is the third in the Dragon's fate series and is about Ilmir.

Storm Clouds
Dragon’s Fate

Book Three
Lacy Danes

Genre: Paranormal Romance/
alternate universe/historical/red hot

Publisher: Samhain
Date of Publication: December 30th
ISBN: 9781619225718

Number of pages: 75
Book Description:

Before there can be fire, there must be air…

Like his brothers, Ilmir is a dragon born by blood magic. Unlike them, he has an unrelenting thirst for human blood. His one and only scruple: he will never bite a woman he loves. It would kill her, and her loss would drive him mad.

Yet over the years, a young girl he once rescued and brought to the Isle has grown into a woman who occupies too much of his mind and heart.

On her name day, Astrid makes her two most heartfelt wishes: to experience the delights of the city, and to bring the vexing Ilmir back to the Zir family fold. As her wishes drop from her lips, lightning cracks and she discovers she is a weather witch—one in need of serious training to control her powers.

But her goal to redeem Ilmir is fraught with peril, for her deep need to learn the magical language not only awakens the dragon’s passion, it creates a perfect storm of danger that could cost the life of the man she loves.

Warning: This novel contains explicit sex, weather witches, vampires, a super-hot air dragon, and a woman who can wrap him up in a spell.

Available at   Amazon    BN    Kobo   iBooks

Christmas Book Bash with TALINA PERKINS Giveaway #12

With our Christmas Book Bash coming to an end, it's my turn to share a little something with everyone. But first, I'd like to say thank you. This year has been a wonderful experience for me as a debut author and it wouldn't have been possible without all of you wonderful readers who enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing. 

I'd also like to extend a warm heartfelt thank you to each and every author that made this holiday giveaway possible. I'm blessed with great readers and wonderful friends! Thank you! 

Though I'm bringing up the end of our book bash with the last post, this don't mean the giveaways are over! Each author's giveaway will be open and ready for you to enter for a while yet. Wouldn't want anyone to miss out on the fun. ;)

Now for the sweet treats! About five months ago my daughter found this delicious dessert and begged to make it. Now I'm not admitting to any kind of M&M addiction, but if you suffer from this, you might want to make this recipe right away! It has a way of soothing the urge to M&M binge. :)

Thick and Chewy M&M Cookie Bars
Poorly taken photo of our dish. *blush*

Yield: 1 9x1 3 pan Prep Time: 1 5 min Cook Time: 30 min Total Time: 45 min

These cookies are soft, chewy, and chocked full of M&M's!

2 1 /8 cups flour
1 /2 tsp salt
1 /2 tsp baking soda
1 2 Tbsp butter (1 1 /2 sticks), melted and cooled slightly
1 cup brown sugar
1 /2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsps vanilla extract
1 1 2oz bag M&M's, divided


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Adjust the oven rack to lower-middle position. Grease a 9x1 3 pan and set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter and sugars until combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix well.

Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined; do not over mix. Fold in 1 cup of M&M's and turn the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula. Sprinkle remaining M&M's on top and press in slightly.

Bake 25-30 minutes, until the top of the bars is light golden brown, slightly firm to the touch, and edges start pulling away from sides of pan. Cool completely before cutting. Enjoy!

I've heard through the grapevine that Santa LOVES this option to cookies. Just sayin'!
Be whisked away to Mexico in Sunset for Three as Mia sets an erotic plan of seduction in motion that leads her former Recon Marine bosses into a dangerous position between protecting her from a vengeful drug lord and following their heart's desires.
