Holy Cow!

I just finished my book! Wheeeee. Just this very moment!

Why the delighted surprise?

Because I wrote this book in random scenes, something I've never, ever done before. Then I had to go back in to transition and flesh them out.

So, just a second ago I fleshed out the last sentence I needed to and voila! Completion snuck up on me. It's a weird feeling.

But besides that, I have other news. Last night another review of A Lick and A Promise hit my inbox. Check it out:

Rating: 4 Enchantments

Dove Hansen has a mystery dream lover. He meets up with her every time she closes her eyes. But the 'encounters' lately have been leaving her on edge and wondering if she is crazy - not so good for her day job as a tutor to the world's most brilliant five year old.

Anthros is on a mission. Coming to Earth to save his planet and civilization as he knows it, he takes the name Mark Arianos. The oxygen-rich Earth air makes him appear to be a strung out junkie, so for further cover, he joins Dove's two slightly dotty aunts for 'rehabilitation'.

The attraction between Dove and Mark is instantaneous, but each has a reason for feeling it is wrong. Dove doesn't want to get involved with an addict who could break her heart, no matter how sexy she finds him. For Mark, sex on his planet is a huge no-no, and indulging in it could compromise his mission and get him killed.

So what are these two going to do? Keep meeting in Dove's dreams, of course. Only Dove doesn't know that the mystery dream lover is actually Mark. She is torn between the elusive 'dream man' and the flesh-and-blood one before her. Can she find a way to trust Mark, a former junkie? Or will her caution save her and the people close to her?

Being in rehabilitation has put Mark in the best position to complete his mission - not only is he near Dove, but he is also close to the gifted boy who can save his people. What happens to the mission as he starts to fall in love with Dove? Will he be able to betray her by stealing the child she tutors?

The second book in a series, A LICK AND A PROMISE has some wacky moments that will keep you chuckling, and enough romance to make you sigh wistfully. The growth that both characters go through during the book is fun to witness and the sex scenes…well let's just say, I enjoyed them and I think you will too. The storyline is original and well put together. If you are looking for a light-hearted, cute story, this book is a nice way to pass the time.

Congratulations on the new review for A Lick And A Promise. Break out several more brewskies.

I hope you don't have anything else to celebrate today as you will be face-down in front of the fridge reaching for the brewskies.

You know, one of the sad things about the children getting older is that they require me to drive them places and there are so many less opportunities to get plastered.

I think my next date with a six pack is Oct. 19th. at a friend's b-day party.

Depressing, isn't it?

I feel your pain! I remember those days of being "the driver from hell". At least, that's what my kids called me. They couldn't understand why they couldn't dawdle while dinner burned on the stove at home.

Needless to say, as soon as dinner, homework and all the other little necessities of life were taken care of, I popped that top.

In the previous blog, I saw that Renee was back. Yeah!!! Maybe we can get some good trash going.
