Greetings everyone! I am glad to be back and posting on the blog after many busy months of well, life. I hope everyone has been as captivated as ever with all the newest releases our great authors have been putting forth for your enjoyment, and all the other great news and events in the world of Between Your Sheets!
This week is not only great and festive because Mardi Gras is upon us, but one of our fabulous authors, C.H. Admirand , is releasing her newest book, Sullivan’s Choice, on Thursday, February 26th! In this story, a 30-year-old woman named Candace Sullivan needs to make a decision that will change her love-life, adding excitement, comfort, and intrigue. She is uncertain of which to choose of two very different men: the beef-cake or the debonair genteel. Her decision truly becomes difficult when it becomes known that someone is out to take her life, and she must then choose the most noble? Or the most caring? Or both?? You can check out more about this book at the BYS site here. Or check out this amazing book trailer:

Southern born…Northern bred
I was born in Aiken, South Carolina, but alas, my parents moved back to northern New Jersey where I grew up, which if you’ve met me would explain a lot. I’ve always had my nose in a book, have traveled the world over, and even tested the time-space continuum, thanks to the awesome power of the written word. My love for the written word is a gift from my parents, but the need to write was instilled by my 7th Grade English teacher. One of my writing quirks is that I love to include bits and pieces of my ancestors and ancestry in all of my books.
Fate, destiny and love at first sight will always play a large part in my stories because they played a major role in my life. When I saw my husband for the first time, I knew he was the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I’ve loved him forever…well…more than half my life. Each and every hero I write about has a few of Dave’s best qualities, his honesty, his integrity, his compassion for those in need and his killer broad shoulders. I’m such a sucker for a man with broad shoulders.
C.H. Admirand has been writing and receiving rejections for over a decade. However, her perseverance has proved that she is an amazing writer, as she published her first book, The Marshal’s Destiny, in 2001, and has published many since then. She received the Lories 2002 Award for Best New Author Historical, and continues to write stories that include historical background from her Irish heritage.
Here is more, from C.H. herself, about what is going on in her life, at the BYS site.
OPERATION: L.O.V.E., A SPECIAL OPS ROMANCE ANTHOLOGY will be released in March...pub date TBA from Highland Press in Trade Paperback. The collection has five sweet romances featuring the Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, Army and Marines.
All of the authors have agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds to the USO.
I was delighted when Anne Elizabeth asked me to submit a story for the collection. I chose the USCG and had the great fortune to do a telephone interview with a USCG Rescue Swimmer who then invited me to tour the Atlantic City Air Station. I had two hours to ask whatever question I could think of, while seeing first hand the preparation that goes into being ready for anything...Semper Paratus...Always Ready...the USCG's watchphrase. Readers can visit our website www.operationlove.us or www.highlandpress.org to find out more about the collection.
What I'm working on right now:
I have four short stories due in the next few months, all for upcoming collections. I'm delighted to be currently researching the NCS - National Clandestine Service (a part of the CIA), USCG Flight MECH, the INR (Dept. of State's Bureau of Intelligence and Research) and a Pyromaniac/Arsonist for a short story about a Fire Fighter.
A GIFT FROM HOME, Book 4 in my Irish Western Series
CHARITY, Book 2 in my Regency-Era Historical Trilogy
PRUDENCE, Book 3 in my Regency-Era Historical Trilogy
Projects submitted...keep your fingers crossed:
A hot contemporary western ~ working title: THE CIRCLE G RANCH: TYLER
I was Renee Bernard's first guest for 2009 on her blogtalk radio show: Canned Coffee & Laughter...here's the link:
Remember, just by merely posting on comment, you could be the lucky recipient of a book from C.H. Admirand! She is willing to give away one of these e-books:
Medieval Trilogy: The Lord of Merewood Keep, Bk 1/The Saxon Bride, Bk 2/A Scot's Honor, Bk 3. Regency-era Historical: Patience. Contemporary Paranormal (novella): Bridget's Rainbow
Thanks for joining me again to celebrate the successes and adventures of a great writer! Be sure to ask questions and post comments, as our author would love to drop in and share her knowledge with us! Until next time...have fun, Between Your Sheets!

Happy September everyone! I hope you are all in the mood for something a little more dark and twisted, as this week's featured author, Rita Herron, brings us a new release dealing with psychics, serial killers, and dark desires. Clarissa King is a psychic who is terrified of all the bad that can happen to her hometown as images of murder appear to her while she works alongside a sexy FBI agent trying to track down a serial killer. A dangerous attraction is spawned between the two, and they both must try to control their overwhelming desire as Vincent Valtrez, the FBI agent, has a deep secret he must keep, and the two learn of the murderer being demonic and otherworldly. Will Vincent’s deep secret reveal a dark side in him that could cause harm and possibly death to the sexy Clarissa, whom he strongly desires? Check out more about this book here at the BYS website.
And , of course, a fantastic book trailer:
Rita Herron is an award-winning author who has sold over 45 books to date. Rita writes for a living, as she used to be a kindergarten teacher, but now follows her true passion for writing spine-tingling romantic suspense. She writes for Harlequin Intrigue and HQN and has sold a paranormal romantic suspense trilogy to Grand Central Publishing. Impressive! To read more about Rita, check out her BYS bio. Or go to her personal website here!
Rita also included some interesting tidbits just for you guys! Enjoy!
* I often get asked where I got my ideas. Well, the first line of my first chapter in Insatiable Desire, the hero thinks that the first time he beds a woman is the best. That's because he never takes a woman to bed twice.
How did I come up with that line? When my husband and I go to the beach, we're always tired and hot when we arrive and unload. Then we pop open that first beer and go down to look at the ocean. The last trip, that beer tasted so good and cold and I said, "Why is it that the first beer is always the best?"
Then I knew I had my first line -- not about beer but about sex. It totally fit my character, too.
Of course I shared that line with several writers to get their reaction. And it sparked a lot of discussion. Is the first time really the best? Maybe, because you're so excited and dying to be together. Or maybe it's too rushed and the next time is better because it's slow and tender. Or maybe it's better when he learns those g-spots so he pleases you more!
* I have an identical twin sister. People always ask which one of us was the good twin, which was the evil one?
I think we all have good and evil in us, which is part of the theme of The Demonborn. But being good is boring in a book - being evil is fun! So when I write dark, gritty romantic stories I get to be both good and bad! Now, that's fun.
So, keep the comments and any questions for Rita coming, because you could just be lucky enough to have your own signed copy of Insatiable Desire! Enjoy the suspense and intrigue, as you find your time to yourself, Between Your Sheets!
Marla’s Question of the Blog!
What would you do if the man you loved/desired was under control by some demonic being?

And of course, one of you lucky readers will be randomly selected to win a copy of Sexual Deceptions signed by both authors, so be sure to keep the comments coming!
I haven’t done this in a while, so here it is. My own personal question for you guys to have fun with! If you could have any person as your own slave, who would it be? Could be a celebrity, a model, a political figure, etc. This could be fun. :)
Until next time, have sweet dreams, Between Your Sheets!
