Valentine's Day Gift Hop

Welcome to the Valentine's Day Gift Hop, hosted by Skye Warren! Over 140 authors and bloggers are participating, and each blog is offering an individual prize, such as a book or a giftcard or a date with Joe Manganiello. Okay, I made that last one up, but I promise there are cool prizes to be won.

Leaving a comment on the participating blogs will also enter you for a chance to win the grand prizes -  a Kindle Paperwhite and a digital new adult romance basket:

On my blog stop, I'm giving away a $10 Amazon giftcard AND one ebook (winner's choice) from my backlist to a random commenter.

I am looking forward to Valentine's Day this year for three reasons:

1. My husband will be arriving home that evening after a weeklong work trip (and I miss him so!). This will be our 12th Valentine's Day together.

2. My kids will come home with lots of candy from their class parties. I love candy. Especially chocolate. It goes well with coffee and writing.

Coming February 14th!!!
3. Feb. 14th is the release date for Milestones, a domestic discipline anthology that will contain my short story, "A Time to Heal." Milestones is the follow-up to the Coming to Terms domestic discipline anthology, and it will contain stories by these seven authors of spanking fiction: Renee Rose, Celeste Jones, Cara Bristol, Jade Cary, Anastasia Vitsky, Alta Hensley, and Sue Lyndon.

Milestones blurb:

From making it a year cancer-free to adjusting to a spouse home from a tour of duty, seven domestic discipline couples grapple with life’s milestones.

WARNING: This book contains scenes with spanking, Domestic Discipline, and graphic sex.

The First Submission by Anastasia Vitsky

Bred to uphold duty and tradition from the cradle, rising legal scholar Sori shrinks from marriage and assuming the role of disciplinarian. Temper pot Karie longs for freedom as a First Responder and scorns the fusty Sori. In this prequel to Becoming Clissine, Karie and Sori must choose their own happiness. Can they find love in an arranged marriage?


October Something by Jade Cary

As their tenth wedding anniversary approaches, Kate and Jack Barrington are signing divorce papers instead of exchanging tin. Desperate to save their marriage, Jack holds Kate hostage at their mountain retreat, where happiness once reigned supreme. Can they move through the bad times and find love once again?


Major Changes by Cara Bristol

Before her military husband left for Afghanistan, Cadence Simmons depended on Rahm’s love, guidance, and protection. But his service to his country forced her to become more independent and make decisions for herself. He’s home for good now and eager to resume where they left off. But Cadence isn’t quite sure she wants things exactly as they were before. Can a little domestic discipline help this loving couple through some major changes?


The Barn by Alta Hensley

Determined to convert an old barn into the home of her dreams, Paige Holland returns to her small town after twelve years. She finds herself face to face with the man she never forgot. The same man who shattered her heart in a million pieces. The same man she never wanted to see again, yet also the same man she so desperately missed. Connor McNeil...her first true love.


Making It 'Write' by Celeste Jones

Jill Carpenter is thrilled when her first spanking fiction novel is accepted for publication and a whole new life as a professional writer opens up for her. The only catch? Complying with her husband's rules regarding absolute secrecy and privacy.


A Time to Heal by Sue Lyndon

Stephie’s cancer went into remission a year ago, but her husband, Marcus, still treats her like she’s breakable. They resume practicing domestic discipline, but Marcus has a hard time following through with punishments, leaving Stephie frustrated that it’s not the same as before her illness. Can they move past the fears that have built up between them to find the intimacy they lost?


Unmet Desire by Renee Rose

Watching his wife unravel as she faces infertility is as heartbreaking for Luis as it is for Claire, but the more he compassion he shows, the more she drifts away. Deciding to take a firm hand, he whisks her away to their mountain condo for a weekend boot camp to reaffirm their roles and reignite their passion for one another.

Whew, I am seriously excited for February 14th to roll around! Are you excited about Valentine's Day this year, or is it just another day for you?

  28. I was super excited about my date I was going to win with Joe Manganiello! And now, I guess I will have to settle for my Husband. I do have to say, my husband is pretty hot too.:) As long as we can manage to get our kids to bed early so we can enjoy each others company, I will be happy. And if not, thats parenthood, and I will still be happy :)
