HUMP-DAY HUNK -- Joe Manganiello

After you're done drooling over today's hunk, please come visit me at the lovely Holley Trent's blog, where I'm giving away an ecopy of Lessons of the Heart!

I really don't need to say much about this particular specimen of male perfection (except that he seems to be channeling a little Gerard Butler, which only makes him HOTTER). Let's let the photos do the talking...

HUMP-DAY HUNK -- Thierre di Castro

I love a man who knows how to smile! On a dare from his trainers, , born in 1979 in Rio de Janeiro, prepared for and won the 2010 Model Universe Championships in Miami. The 6'2" former beach volleyball player moved to Hollywood in 2010 where, a month later, he was featured in a national campaign for the Zoosk dating website and an Old Navy TV commercial.

Do you think all the guys on Zoosk look like him?

If you enjoyed the McCray brothers, check out my historical western romances!

I'm excited to announce that my Daughters of the Prairie series of novellas are now available at Smashwords and Amazon.  They'll be available soon at BN and All Romance Ebooks.

The covers are by the amazing Viola Estrella.  Thank you, Vi!  Thanks also to Judi Fennell for your invaluable help with formatting and uploading.  You ladies are the best!

The last thing bounty hunter Bobby Morgan expects after a stay in a small Dakota town is to wake up in a dirty jail cell accused of a crime he didn't commit. When a preacher's beautiful daughter provides a means for escape, he takes it. On the run with his feisty hostage, Bobby swears to her he means her no harm. 

Naomi Blackburn wants nothing more than to go home to her ma and pa. But her handsome outlaw captor ignites a passion in her that's both frightening and exciting. Can two decidedly different souls come together? Or will misfortunes and Bobby's own doubts keep them apart?

Spinster schoolteacher Ruth Blackburn has accepted her fate. She's not meant for love, especially not with ill-mannered—though excruciatingly handsome—Garth Mackenzie, the widowed father of one of her students. She'll just have to ignore the fact that he makes her skin heat.

Garth Mackenzie is used to loss. The Civil War cost him his best friend and his ability to sleep through the night, and illness stole his wife and son. To avoid the pain of losing his daughter, he keeps her at arm's length, much to her teacher's dismay. Ruth Blackburn is independent and opinionated—just what Garth doesn't need. But her vibrant beauty and energy awaken feelings in him he thought long dead.

Ella Morgan loves her mother and father, but she's grown weary of their overbearing protectiveness. She longs for excitement, adventure, and most of all, love. When she finds an injured Lakota warrior hiding in her barn, she's intrigued by the brave and handsome man.

Silver Raven has found his soul mate in the woman with eyes the color of violets at first bloom. Can he convince her to leave her home and family and take her rightful place as his woman? Or will Ella's father and the prejudices of society keep them apart?

I absolutely loved this book!! -Guilty Pleasures Reviews

So many thanks to KC Lu at Guilty Pleasures for the wonderful review of Ivy League Cowboy.  She says:

These two are downright loveable!! You are rooting for them to get together from the get go. The chemistry between them is smoking HOT, and lawd once they get in bed you will need a fan. I have to say there are a couple characters I wanted to beat down. Don’t want to give away too much of that part of the story, because I wouldn’t want to ruin the story for ya. I have a feeling y’all will feel the same way.
