the naughty bits

I don’t know about y’all, but to me, some of the best bits of romance novels are the naughtiest ones! What could be better than reading about two people struggling to find their way to each other emotionally first finding their way physically? Sex scenes play a powerful role in developing relationships on – and off! – the page, and I’m super excited to be part of a competition that celebrates exactly that.

In a moment of potential insanity given the competitors in contests past, I’ve entered Nix’s infamous Sex Scene Championship for 2017! I’m up against a fearsome m/m scene penned by a previous competitor, but I’d appreciate your votes nonetheless. The polls close on Thursday at 4 PM GMT (5 PM in South Africa, 2 PM on the East Coast), oh, and you can enter to win prizes! Go forth and click to vote for Oz and Kate from Defending Hearts!

game, set, match!

It’s April 14th, which means two things: only one day left for US citizens to file their taxes, and release day for LOVE IN STRAIGHT SETS! Its release is part of Carina Press’s Sports Week, spotlighting sexy athletes and the men and women who love them.

Love in Straight SetsIn addition to being in Kansas on vacation – where the state has kindly decided to make up for nine months of tropical South Africa by going through three seasons in four days, topping it off with a dusting of snow this morning – I’m all over the web like a zombie plague.

You can win stuff by commenting at Give Me Books and Fresh Fiction and later today at RT, and you can read an excerpt at the Contemporary Romance Cafe.

If you want to see whether this one’s worth the money, there have been some great reviews from the Dirty Girls and my personal intellectual hero, Jackie Horne from Romance Novels for Feminists.

That’s it for now, but watch this space for even more surprise appearances from my tempestuous tennis player Regan and her sexy Zimbabwean super coach!
