A Great Way to End the Year

Our fab friend Renee has gone and reviewed A Lick and A Promise for Fallen Angels! She gave it FIVE, count 'em, FIVE angels. Thank you Renee!!

Check it out!

When a fantasy lover inhabits your dreams and seeks to give you boundless pleasure each night, what's a girl to do? For Dove Hansen it's simple, lay back and surrender. He may not be real, but it sure feels good to her. When a real man lands literally in the back yard of her young charge, Dove is torn between her sure thing, albeit fantasy man and the living breathing one who seems to have a problem standing up without aide.

Mark Arianos, aka Anthros, aka dream lover, has a small problem. He can't seem to acclimate to earth's air. Ok, so it's a big problem. Add to that the fact he is currently fleeing from his home planet and risks possible death if he is caught or indulges in sex. Let's not forget that his libido is out of control every time Dove is near, and sex is a capitol offense where he comes from. He seeks Dove out for some out of body booty, but that is as far as he can go, and only in her dreams... For now.

Maybe dreams do come true. A Lick And A Promise offers a humorous romp that burns up the pages with sexual tension and erotic heat. This clever story is filled with engaging characters you wish lived next door, sexual chemistry and lots of laughs. Through the imagination, highly creative and often quirky mind of author Ann Wesley Hardin come Dove and Mark. Both are likeable and interesting yet strangely down to earth, considering one of them is an alien. Ms. Hardin has a knack for taking everyday events and conversations and imbibing them with humor. A Lick And A Promise includes characters from Out Of This Word. Readers will enjoy catching up with these former characters while being introduced to Dove and Mark. This book is certain to have readers going to bed trying to conjure up their own dream lovers.

Congrats Ann!! Renee not only makes us laugh, she gives good reviews. What's not to like!

Happy New Year to you and yours and all those who read your blog.

P.S. When are you coming back to the blog full time?

Happy New Year to you too, Bev!

As for the blog...


Well. Hmmmm...

I'll have more to gripe about as I enter the editing phase for my Red Sage book, and I'll have some other announcements as the months progress.

Who knows? Maybe you'll all be treated to dating dilemmas and other fun, newly single angst. We'll have to see.

Right now, though, I'm still in transition.

Hey, write a good book, get a good review. Pretty simple really. I loved the opportunity to review for you Ann.

Can't wait to hear tales about the dating scene these days. I have a old out of date, slightly used man you can borrow if and when you are desperate. All I gotta do is throw in his remote control and he will jump right in the box and I can mail him out to you pronto!

PS. Viagra not included!

Renee, if he's past his 'sell-by date' and Viagra's not included, you're sending 'a pig in a poke' instead of 'Johnnie on the spot'! Of course, Johnnie could be pokin' the pig so he's not available anyway.

Ann, can't wait to hear about your new exciting love life. I just know that you are going to be swept off your feet by a rich good lookin' dude. I also have some marvelous beach-front property in Arizona if you're interested.

Bev, My Johnnie never could find the "spot" let alone pronounce it properly! I say we chip in and get Ann a lifetime supply of batteries, they are like vitamins for women, you get your A, C and D every day.

If only my man came with an ISBN code, I could have traded him in for a book long ago!

Renee,that's a great idea. The batteries and the ISBN code! Now if you can just work it so you get satisfaction all around. Books, man and BOB's!

I hear vitamin D is the best of all. SO, we're gonna need a bigger dildo!

Here I am slaving and working my fingers to the bone and missing all the fun on my own blog. Wah! But the good news is I've inherited a cell phone that takes pictures from my daughter--who can afford a better phone than me, where's the justice!--so I'll be able to post so many fun pics of my new digs and the, er, housewarming gifts my slavering fans send me!

And speaking of housewarming, I do intend having a party. Renee, you're not too far, so don't even think of not coming. Bring cheesecake.

Bev--how's that car doing?

My car is still the pits! Sort of like my love life. That's okay, I still have a giant TBR pile and lots of batteries. LOL!

Ann are you actually considering giving me your home addy>

Hmmm oh the possiblities, the wonderful,delightful,marvelously awful and seriously naughty things I could bring to a party. The mind boggles! I am giddy with ideas!

I know just where to place the Bow too.

PS, don't you worry, I will certainly bring the "cheesecake" (grin)

*reconsidering giving Renee my home addy*

So this cheesecake of which you speak, does it come in different flavors and sizes?

Oh and Bev, you're not off the hook. With all this avoidance of meeting and car trouble, I'm beginning to think you're really Teddy Kennedy.

No, I just look like him! It's not really avoidance, I'm trying to come up with alternate transportation. Maybe Anthros can teleport me. Genius Chrysler!

Oh Bev honey, if you meet up with Anthros I am sure you can think up better things to do than ask for a lift, maybe a "ride" but not a lift.

As for the cheesecakes:
Assorted sizes vary depending on the specifications of the customer.

Indulge yourself in a variety of textures, flavors, and of course larger portions are preferred by the most discriminating of coinsures. Satisfaction is guaranteed and you must sample the merchandise to ensure the quality meets your standards and appetite. In fact, it is highly recommended.

Whatever your preference, be it the rich,bold decadent morsels that can often leave you with regret later, or perhaps the artfully decorated yet somewhat fruity offerings that are undeniably confusing but easily palatable. We offer in addition, Sweet, and generous tidbits to tempt your lighter side but tend to leave you Hungry again later. Or for those of you with a darker desire we offer a deep penetrating, velvety smooth peccant, this of course comes with a warning: some customers new to this particular delight cannot accommodate this product easily, a heavy cream sauce is encouraged to provide a more ....smooth experience. But surely not to be missed.

PS, once past your lips you can be certain the cheesecake will end up on your hips.

Renee, now that the cheesecake has settled on my hips x 10, Anthros will have to lift me with a hoist. Forget about the ride!

January 05, 2008 12:25 PM

Oh Bev, I figure the cheesecake that settles on your hips is about 190 pounds of pure sin, and you WILL want it settled there firmly!

You know, I kind of like the idea of being "Pure Sin"! It sure beats Mary Poppins any day.

Just a spoonful of sugar...

Bev, Anthros is busy fighting an intergalactic war at the moment, but I'll send him a telegram at the front just in case he has a free moment. Ya never know.

Moving day is January 19th! WOOOO HOOO!

BTW, my birthday is this coming Friday. We really should DO SOMETHING.

Isn't the operative word here
"Do Someone" bahahahha

As your birthday is on a Friday, going out and hitting the town is almost a Must DO!

No No, Renee, that's going out and "hit on the town"!

Happy Birthday Ann. May you have more and more and get younger every year, just like Jack Benny.

Sorry to hear that I can't use Anthros for transpo, but I can see his hands are full.

Yeah so I came by to see what's up over your way... LOL.

Just once I want to get together with you and some of your friends and stay up and out all night just so I can put it in a screenplay later.

Because... You kill me. LOL.

And what about the guy's SPOT?

The guy's spot? YUK and CHA! when you guy's can learn to find our spot and use it properly as well as pronounce it, then we will be willing to stick our fingers in your unknown territories. Until then you can keep your prostate to yourselves!

As for staying up and out all night, OH YEAH!

Well pack up the Winnebago Unk. We're gonna par-tay!

In other news, guess what I got for my birthday? A wicked fluey cold and a two day hair color disaster.

See, I decided it'd be GREAT to go back to my natural brown. Don't ask me why. I haven't been brown since 1987. But it seemed like a good idea. So I did. And it turned my hair a muddy, gray-green -- kinda like wet crematorium sludge. Yeah. Sexy.

Thank God for this product called Oops. OMG. It restored my blonde and only left the faintest traces of sludge.

So girls, DO NOT do brown over light blonde. You too, Unk. But if you do, there's always Oops. I'm gonna set up a shrine to it in my bathroom.

So sorry to hear that you have a cold. It sounds like the one I had and have been trying to shake for a month.

Sorry to hear about your hair disaster! I've had a few of those in my time. Now, I just decided to let the gray take over. My hair was originally blonde, then I dyed it blonder (is that a word?)and it turned pink. Didn't have OOPs back then and I had to let it grow out. When it finally grew out, I had a lot of brown mixed with the blonde and a gray streak started right in front. I then found a product that didn't turn my hair pink and dyed it ash blonde. I kept it that way for years and finally decided the up- keep was too much.

When it was growing out, a little girl asked me why the top of my head was brown and my pony tail was blonde? My friend, who was with me at the time, replied, "That's a sign of great wisdom".

On that note, I'll again wish you a Happy Birthday and hope you find a hot man when your cold dries up.
