A Heroine Needs a Bestie, Too

Hi, I’m romantic comedy author Lucy Woodhull, and I’m here to celebrate the release of the third and final book in my Samantha Lytton contemporary romance series.  Samantha is a wannabe actress who gets accidentally involved with an art thief who ruins her life in the sexiest way possible.  Book three is called The Wrath of Dimple, and it follows The Dimple of Doom and The Dimple Strikes Back.

Dimple all 3 covers

Here’s a blurb for the first book:

The Dimple of Doom cracked me up. I laughed and laughed and then laughed some more.” —
Smexy Books

The Dimple of Doom, book one in the Samantha Lytton series.

It may sound like common sense, but never hump an art thief. Turns out, Samantha Lytton’s Common-Sense-O-Meter is super duper broken.

Failed actress Samantha Lytton is getting along just fine in her lonely little life when a charming criminal called Sam or Nate or maybe even Richmond kisses her, square dances most provocatively, opens his not-so-wicked heart, and gets her in trouble with not one, but two international art theft rings as well as the LAPD.

She’s either gonna end up in jail or famous.  Maybe both.

Along the way, she fights for her life and falls for this funny, sexy disaster of a man… and learns that finding happily-ever-after with yourself is the first step to real contentment. A cute dimple is just the second.

Buy: The Dimple of Doom

Samantha goes on the adventure of her life through these three books, and travels the world in pursuit of her own dreams (and the hot man, natch).  She’s accompanied many times by her best friend, Ellen, and they enjoy a fabulous female friendship inspired by the hijinks of myself and my oldest friend, K.  So for fun, I asked K to interview me for my blog tour of The Wrath of Dimple (book three).  She said yes like the humoring friend that she is, and so I present:  The interview of Lucy Woodhull by BFF K.

Dearest Lucy, we have been BFFs since long before the popularization of the term, “BFF,” much like Samantha and Ellen in your fabulous books. We even, as I recall, created our own secret language, of sorts. If Samantha and Ellen did similar, what would “BFF” stand for in their speak?

BFF in Samantha and Ellen’s language means “bshhhbr frappy froop,” which means “We are the unicorn queens of the universe, and we will, we will rock you (clap clap) rock you (clap clap).”  They’re big Queen fans, and also big unicorn fans.  Children of the eighties always are!  Also, “bshhhbr frappy froop” is really fun to say.  The first word is basically just a raspberry.

What is the square root of 69?

Dammit, Jim, I’m a writer, not a math wizard!  69 needs no square root, as it is the most tempestuous number.  Besides seven hundred and forty-three…that is one racy number.

Xanadu is Samantha’s favorite movie. What is Sam the man’s favorite?

Sam, Samantha’s unfortunately same-named art thief lover (and he of the infamous dimple), loves Raiders of the Lost Ark.  Indiana Jones is grumpy and runs around the world excavating artifacts.  Sam is also grumpy, and travels the globe, um, “liberating” pieces of art.  That’s kindof the same thing, right?  On a personal note, Harrison Ford UNF, amIright?

Samantha can be pretty badass at times — have you, Lucy, ever kicked a (deserving) guy in the nuts?

Ha!  No, I have not.  Not physically, anyway.  I have been known to try and ball-bust with my mind, but since I’m not an X-Man, it doesn’t work.  Samantha, however, busts criminals of both genders with shocking regularity, with the help of Ellen and her girlfriend Nicolette (a bona-fide cop).  These three ladies are a force to be reckoned with, even while singing “Xanadu.”  Nope, no kicks to the groin, but Samantha does defeat a bad guy while wearing roller skates, which is totally a Beyoncé thing to do.  I am worthy of neither of them.

* * *

You can read the blurbs for all three of Samantha’s funny adventures here.  My crazy heroine has brought me a lot of joy, and I hope she can do the same for you!

Thanks so much to Love, Romance, Passion for having me.  And thanks to K for putting up with me for more years than I care to admit to on the Internet.

Bio:  Lucy Woodhull has always loved le steamy romance. And laughing. And both things at the same time, although that can get awkward. Her motto is “Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you’ll short-circuit your Kindle.” That’s why she writes funny books, because goodness knows we all need to escape the real world once in a while. She believes in red lipstick, equality, and the interrobang. Hailing from Southern California, she daydreams with her husband and a very fat cat who doesn’t like you.

Plot Bunnies

Pippa Jay Author PicHi, I’m Pippa Jay, a girl who writes scifi and the supernatural. Whovian, Scaper and Sith-in-training. I live in the historical town of Colchester with my husband of 21 years and three redhaired monsters, while roaming the rest of the universe inside my head. In the past year I’ve become very fond of the enemies to lovers trope. The additional conflict right from the word go, and the lengths the hero and heroine must go to either to resolve their differences or figure out a common ground is great for the tension. And it was something I came to by accident. Over a year ago a submission call went out for a scifi romance anthology, and as with most calls like this my mind instantly went blank. I really wanted to be a part of the anthology, but the harder I tried the more muse gave me the silent treatment. I was stuck!

So I put out a cry for help on Twitter, my favourite place to be. One of my friends with a folder full of plot bunnies threw several my way, and unusually I went for the one I’d least likely pick if I hadn’t been under pressure – a daring thief on the run. Why? Well, as soon as I saw the suggestion a scene formed in my head, of my two main characters (MCs) caught in a tussle that’s not all it seemed. After that the idea stuck, and I went on to write my daring thief and the alien lawman determined to catch her.

But that wasn’t all that stuck. The idea of having two characters at odds with one another from the start really snared my muse. So when Tethered begins, while my characters aren’t exactly at war with one another, my heroine Tyree isn’t happy with either her situation or the partner she’s been assigned to. Right from the beginning we find her protesting her new task from her ruling council, and being forced to grudgingly agree to the mission. Considered a rebel by her own people, Tyree doesn’t particularly like humans, and normally she’s sent to assassinate them, not help them. Frequent sparks fly between them, making a happy ever after seem all the more unlikely. Having to work in close proximity with a man she doesn’t know, and who repeatedly confuses her, challenges her, and maintains a façade over it all is close to torture. But for me as a writer, it just added to the fun. Did I mention how much I love to torment my characters? ;)

So what’s your favourite trope to read or to write, and what is it about it that appeals to you so much?

Tethered_200x300 Book Blurb: 

She can kill with a kiss. But can assassin Tyree also heal one man’s grief, and bring peace to a galaxy threatened by war?

For Tyree of the Su, being an assassin isn’t simply something she was trained for. It’s the sole reason for her existence. A genetically enhanced clone—one of many in Refuge—she’s about to learn her secluded lifestyle, and that of all her kind, is under threat by a race capable of neutralizing their special talents to leave them defenseless.

For Zander D’joren, being a diplomat has not only cost him his appearance, but also the love of his life. Scarred, grieving, he must nonetheless continue in his role as co-delegate to the fearsome Tier-vane or risk a conflict that could only end one way.

Now both of them need to keep each other alive and maintain a perilous deception long enough to renegotiate the treaty with the Tier-vane, or throw their people into a war that could wipe out Terrans and Inc-Su alike. But there’s more at stake than humanity, whether true or modified. Can the love growing between them save them both? Or merely hasten their destruction?

Excerpt:

A thrill of excitement shivered down her spine as she backed away a few steps with Zander following. He shrugged off his formal outer robes, and for the first time she could appreciate the broad expanse of his chest, the close-fitting fabric stretched over well-defined muscles. It appeared he hadn’t allowed his physique to slacken, despite leaving the Galactic Commission.

“Are you ready?” she asked.

Zander spread his hands in an open gesture to say that he was.

So why is he just standing there like a defunct Manikin instead of poised to fight?

Tyree took her combat position and Zander matched her, just as the Manikin had done. She’d never fought a human in combat practice before. This should be interesting.

She sprang forward and aimed two rapid punches at his face. Zander evaded both with a speed and grace totally out of proportion to his bulk. Her third he blocked with little effort, and she stepped back to reassess her strategy. But only for an instant.

A quick step forward and she lashed upward with her foot, snapping his head back. Zander staggered but didn’t fall. Her second kick failed as he grabbed her ankle and jerked her off balance. She twisted as she dropped and caught him hard in the knee. Zander collapsed. Both rolled aside, and then jumped up to face each other again.

Not bad.

Tyree bit back a laugh as they exchanged blows, each faster than the last. Zander blocked or evaded most, but not all. His skill almost matched hers, yet his defenses were just a fraction too slow. Each move she made tested his reach, his reflexes and his stamina until she could sense him struggling a little.

Time for the kill.

She floored him with a kick to the chest, the full weight of her augmented density behind it, but as she moved in to finish the fight he dove into her. Tyree landed on her back hard enough to drive the breath from her lungs.

Zander had her pinned to the ground. She bucked but couldn’t shift him. The triumphant smile on his face sent rage blazing through her gut. With hardly a whisper, she Misted out and went through him. Golden warmth filled her for a second before she pulled free. Zander pushed to his feet and spun to meet her, but she cranked up her molecular density and punched him hard in the chest. He collapsed, gasping and coughing. In one fluid movement she sat astride him at full density, and the air whumphed out of his lungs. She pinioned his arms with her hands, her face hovering mere centimeters above his.

As her breathing slowed to normal, a huge grin split her face. She’d made a vow to herself to jump him, and she’d done it. Perhaps it was childish, but it warmed her heart.

“Your…reputation…is well deserved,” he gasped.

“You’re not so bad yourself,” she complimented him. He’d fought well, but perhaps not quite with the determination—and certainly not the desperation—of most opponents she’d faced. “For a human.”

“Thank you. Perhaps we could try this again tomorrow?”

Tyree laughed. As much as he could irritate the hell out of her, he was equally amusing. “If you want to spend most of your morning on the floor…”

He gazed up at her with that easy smile, making no effort to struggle. Most humans, without the influence of her pheromones and the distraction of her naked body writhing above theirs, would not have been so trusting. So compliant. She found herself staring at his mouth. What would it be like to kiss him, without the use of her talents? Would it be as satisfying? As sensual? The warmth of him, the firmness of his body beneath hers, sent heat spiraling through her abdomen.

“Perhaps you could let me up now?” His words jerked her from such musings. What the hell was she thinking?

Review: When the Rogue Returns (The Duke’s Men, Book 2) by Sabrina Jeffries

When the Rogue ReturnsHero: Victor Cale just recently learned of his wife’s whereabouts after she abandoned him and said their marriage was a mistake. She left him to face the consequences of the crime she and her family colluded to and executed so effortlessly under his nose. He plans to confront her and seek justice for all the injuries they and she inflicted on him through their perjury. His broken heart is at the top of that list.

Heroine: Isa Cale, hiding under an assumed name, Sofe Franke, is angry and frightened when her husband shows up in Edinburgh ten years after he deserted her. Why is he there? Why now? What does he want? Does he know of their child? Does he want to trick her or force her into illegal activities again? Well, he’s about to find out that Isa is not the timid little mouse he married. She’s got teeth and she’s willing to do what it takes to protect her daughter.

Review: It’s clear from the beginning that the hero and heroine are laboring under a big misunderstanding. A decade spent apart and a series of lies has torn their fledging marriage into two and two hearts are grieving for the loss of a love they both thought was true. Their double-speak when they first meet again is quite entertaining. Victor’s reaction to Isa’s feelings, about the pet name he gave her, is particularly heart-wrenching. He did not realize he’d been so misunderstood! He’s quick to come up with an alternative. Both are unique to the heroine and I love that. What great about this novel is that Sabrina Jeffries knits both hearts, both characters, slowly back together. Trust is a big issue for them both and it’s a delight to see them work through the fabrications and make amends for back judgments in the past. It’s also nice to know that even while they trust, they did both still have doubts and had to fight to overcome them time and again. It made for a realistic read. I also enjoyed that the story took place outside of the usual London setting. Not a book to be missed!

Review: It Had to Be You (Lucky Harbor, Book 7) by Jill Shalvis

it had to be youHeroine: Have you ever been broken up with by a text message? Well, Ali Winters sure has. When trying to give him a piece of her mind, she finds out her boyfriend, Teddy, has been cheating. When had they gone from being together to being roommates? Now he’s claiming she stole money from his office during a fundraising event and the whole town believes him. To top it all off, she’s about to be kicked out of her house, because the cheating louse of a boyfriend didn’t tell her the lease was up until it was too late.

Hero: Detective Lieutenant Luke Hanover returns to his hometown after a particularly nasty case with a three-ring media circus. He’s going to use the downtime to fix up his house and discovers Ali Winters naked inside. What’s going on and why is this female in his home? She’s an interloper! When she tells him what is going on, he finds himself doing the one thing he was certain he wasn’t going to do – investigate. But he can’t not help!

Review: Luke is a great alpha hero – he’s a gogetter, tough, strong, kind, and tender. He plays the role without being an overbearing blockhead in the process. Ali is also tough. For a gal that was dumped, homeless, losing a job, and about to be arrested for something she didn’t do, she kept herself pretty together. She didn’t give up even when she was feeling really down. And when it gets to be too much, Luke is there to pick her up. For two people who see the end coming before they start, they find they can’t help themselves. Then they find they are both willing to do what it takes to make it stick. Hot!

Get into Bed with Susannah Scott (Author Interview)

author pic cover (200x300)Keira: I love watching Leverage, so learning Luck of the Dragon had a grifter (very rare in romance) made me super excited. How does your character feel about being a grifter, and is she any good?

Susannah Scott: Oh yes, Lucy is a very good thief, but she is conflicted. She gave up grifting to pursue a respectable life as a PhD gemologist. She is world-renowned for her professional (legal) skills, but in order to bail out her ne’er-do-well twin, Joey, she has to steal from the Crown Jewel Casino. Lucy is very feisty anyway, but the combination of being blackmailed and having to return to her old ways, pushes her over the edge, straight into Alec.

Keira: The sexiness of Las Vegas is the perfect setting for this novel because…

Susannah: I just love Las Vegas–for about 3 days–after that I am worn out. But if I had to define what makes it so sexy, for me it is the foil of the condensed opulence against the harsh dessert. It gives the place a feel of being out-of-time, that reality is truly pushed away to the edge of the green-watered lawns, so that anything–even dragons–are possible.

Keira: I love the paranormal twist – I did not see a dragon shape-shifter coming. I admit I originally thought an Asian themed casino and left it simply at that. It’s cool to see it be so much more in the book. What are some pluses and minuses to being a dragon shape-shifter?

Susannah: The dragons really struggle with their dual natures. In their dragon forms, they are too aggressive and are forced to be loners. But in the modern world, there are just not enough places for a loner dragon to lair-up. So, Alec devises a sanctuary at the top of his casino to provide a hidden-in-plain sight existence for his people. I love the constant conflict of their bestial natures and their human reasoning because they are forced to co exist.

Keira: How does a dragon-shifter recognize a mate?

Susannah: Usually with the first kiss, there is a mutual electricity that surges through them and possessiveness. This didn’t happen for Lucy though, because she is a human. Alec has a very hard time convincing her that he isn’t a crazy cult leader, really fun stuff!

Keira: Tell me more about this mating ceremony!

Susannah: The dragons are an ancient race. As such, they have a high level of pageantry and custom to their ceremony. All the different dragon factions have different clothing, ie. the water dragons wear blue shifts and jewels. They love and treasure the “finer” things in life. They are sensory connoisseurs, and this really comes out in the ceremony. It is vibrant and passionate and breath taking.

Keira: What was your favorite scene to write (or one that surprised you) and why?

Susannah: I always just get pulled in during the flight scenes. I am right there with the dragon, coasting through the sky, feeling the wind and the weather.

Keira: What’s next for you in life and in writing?

Susannah: Next up in writing is STOP DRAGON MY HEART AROUND. Leo and Tee’s story out this fall-ish. It is a fun friends to lovers tale, with lots of sexy banter. Personally, we have a new house and my kids are home from school for the summer. So I am alternating unpacking with enjoying them.

Thank you so much for having me Keira and giving my an opportunity to connect with your readers. Great questions!

All my best,

Susannah Scott

Review: Too Dangerous to Desire (Lords of Midnight, Book 3) by Cara Elliott

Too Dangerous to DesireHeroine: Sophie Lawrance knows passionate love doesn’t always conquer all. It certainly didn’t help her in the past, when she felt it her duty to refuse her heart. Instead of fighting for her, her lover ran away. And it definitely can’t help her now that she is in the middle of a blackmail scheme meant to ruin her father’s reputation and her sister’s happiness. Or can it? Can she trust the pirate with the face of her first love to help?

Hero: Cameron Daggett, the man whose hand in marriage Sophie once rejected, is good at living in the shadows. When his present unexpectedly collides with his past, he has to know what brings her back into his sphere. Her meeting with a shady bloke piques his curiosity and she his passions. His skills as a thief will finally get some good use if he can manage to steal her heart again.

Review: For the record, the nickname Sleuth Hound is not as sexy as Wolfhound. Cam might have been better named Ghost Hound, because he can slip in and out of people’s homes stealing what he most desires. Virtuous ladies’ virtue especially! There are shades of Jane Austen’s Persuasion in the setup of this third book in the Lords of Midnight trilogy. Perfect, if you are in the mood for second chance romance.

Review: The Landlord’s Black-Eyed Daughter by Mary Ellen Dennis

Reviewed by Hannah

For all those girls who love bad boys, this is the book for you. A cavalier thief (aka “highwayman”) not only works to steal your heart, but also your baubles and pocketbook.

Hero: Rand is tall, dark and handsome. And if that already isn’t enough, he’s got the Robin Hood persona down pat. His cool, reserved demeanor can be trying for the reader to get into, but if aloft is hot for you- then this is the romance hero for you.

Heroine: Elizabeth is a curvy girl who’s far before her time. She’s feminine and independent (petticoats with career goals and aspirations)… it makes me happy. Elizabeth, a top selling romance novel writer in the Regency era, finds herself falling in love with the protagonist from her own work. At first glance, she knew she wanted to meet him.

She approaches him from all the way across the dance floor, and introduces herself – completely shocking herself with her brashness. It was very fun to see the heroine put herself out there time and time again. Her infatuation grows with him, as his surface-deep indifference increases (which seems a bit backwards to me, but makes for some interesting situations.)

Dislikes: Right from the first sexual encounter between Elizabeth and Rand… which was hot and feverish, Rand disappears. He might as well have been the invisible man, how fast he fled the scene. Seriously, then he goes on to tell her she should be with an alternative suitor (who also happens to be the “Right Arm of the Law” type guy and a beta male).

If that hadn’t been horrifying enough to read, Elizabeth happily accepts his fleeing without complaint. Yeah… that is unacceptable in my book. You don’t say “I love you” and run. Talk about mixed signals.

Likes: I loved the sex scenes, so hot. Rand plays a very controlled counterpart in those scenes. I had to wipe the sweat off my face, I got so hot.

I also thoroughly enjoyed the main character’s ardor, she was very capable of handling any all situations that arose, especially in reference to the sticky situations featured around the criminal acts of her bad boy.

Review: Heartwishes by Jude Deveraux

Reviewed by Susan S.

Edilean Series: Book Six

Heartwishes combines a charming setting with an intriguing plot, and then sprinkles it with a magical feel; presenting you with a comfort read you just can’t put down.

Summary: Gemma Ranford, heroine, was hired to piece together the family history for one of Edilean’s founding families-The Fraziers. Gemma relishes reading documents dating back to sixteenth century England. Perhaps working for Mrs. Frazier will help her decide on a dissertation topic.

As Ranford’s research progresses, two things will occur. She’ll uncover documents relating to a magical stone, and acknowledge her growing desire for the Frazier’s eldest son and Edilean’s sheriff, Colin. A professional thief now means to acquire the Heartwishes Stone; placing Gemma in harm’s way. But what about the repercussions of her involvement with her employer’s son? There’s the wrath of Colin’s former-maybe-current girlfriend (Jean), the possibility of being unemployed, disappointing Mrs. Frazier, losing credence with her adviser, not to mention, giving the town gossipmongers a new topic of discussion. Gemma has only one question to answer. Is love worth everything she’s risking?

Review: Heartwishes is the first novel I’ve read from the Edilean Series. I enjoyed it so much- my next course of action is to read Scarlet Nights. Would it have anything to do with the hero being a detective, and my loving novels with law enforcement officers? Don’t look at me! I’m not telling.

Because Heartwishes causes flare-ups of can’t-stop-reading-itis, I’m recommending you drink at least one heavily caffeinated drink “before” reading this novel. The most common symptom of my can’t-stop-reading-itis is the what ifs curiosity. And boy, did I suffer into the wee hours of the night. What if the antagonist finds the Heartwishes Stone? What if it really does have magical properties? What if Jean hurts Gemma in a jealous rage? Then again, what if Colin hurts Dr. Aldredge because of his own blinding jealousy? After all, the good ol’ doctor isn’t old at all. He’s gorgeous, smart, has dark black hair, blue eyes, and likes Gemma very much. All right, I’m being too polite. He’s freakin’ hot!

My Favorite Characters: Dr. Tristan Aldredge and Shamus Frazier

Why? Because Tristan is freakin’ hot. Lol. Actually, he’s also very attentive to people’s needs, is a great listener, can help you when you’re sick, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s easy on the eyes.

Colin’s youngest brother, the artist, has real depth. He’s a young man with few words and a big compassionate heart. I fell in love with him. Instantly!

Favorite Scenes:

Number 1: Colin’s dad is at home in Virginia, while his mom is in California visiting her daughter, Ariel. They find out Shamus is missing and they call Colin at the same time. One’s on the cell, the other is on the home phone. Colin places both phones together so they can scream at each other (while they pass the blame).

Number 2: When Tristan kisses Gemma in front of Colin.

Number 3: (The kitchen scene). Gemma’s in the kitchen hiding. When one by one, the Frazier men make their way into the kitchen. She gives them mashed potato lollipops. (Think what happens when you swirl a spoon into mashed potatoes.) All’s well until Mrs. Frazier discovers them and proceeds to berate them.
