Chris Hemsworth Sexiest ManWelcome to the Love Lust and Laptops #Hot for the Holidays Blog Tour.holiday-blog-hop-button

My hot hunk for the holidays is Chris Hemsworth, People Magazine‘s current Sexiest Man Alive. See the People TV video of Chris to see why this Aussie is so HOT.

Chris is also the inspiration for Stuart Alan Walsh aka Tweeter in Storm Warning, Book 4 of the Security Specialists International Series. So, when reading all the SSI books in which Tweeter is featured, just image the shaggy-haired Chris wearing jeans and a tight T-shirt and you’ll have the perfect mental picture of this alpha-geek hero.

Christy Gissendaner’s Newest Book!

Unmasking the WolfOne of my Love Lust and Laptops’ peeps has a new shifter book out!  So, I am sharing it with all of you.

****

Gina Moretti is determined to escape her rural home of Clinton, Indiana, a place where wolves have met, married, and mated for generations. As the only daughter of the alpha, she’s lived her entire life under her father’s rule. No way is she ready to find a mate until she’s experienced more of the world. Against her family’s wishes, she goes to Boston where her scientist cousin, Dominic, has offered to give her a place to stay. She stumbles, quite literally, into her cousin’s gorgeous boss.

Lucas Mason, a Southern boy turned self-made millionaire, rose above his poverty stricken childhood and now enjoys a life of luxury in Boston. To honor his murdered sister, he hires her lab partner to continue their research. His employee, Dominic Moretti, is on the brink of creating a method to combat the scent of a wolf when his country cousin breezes in. Luke knows in an instant that Gina is his mate. The only problem is…she doesn’t even realize he’s a wolf.

As Luke and Dominic get closer to medical trials, an unknown enemy becomes determined to stop them…at any cost. Can Luke discover his foe in time to protect his research…and his mate? And what will happen when Gina finds out he’s not quite as human as he’s led her to believe?

Short Excerpt

“Ahhh,” she cried out as she tumbled toward the floor. A pair of strong arms clamped around her and jerked her back to her feet. Embarrassed beyond belief, her cheeks flamed with the knowledge she’d just made a fool of herself. In front of Dominic’s boss, no less. It didn’t take a brain scientist to realize the handsome, make that extremely handsome, man before her was Luke Mason.

He was sex-on-a-platter hot. Chiseled cheekbones, firm jaw, unbelievably straight nose, and a teensy weensy dimple in the center of his chin. This man was a living, breathing Greek god.

“Are you okay?” Piercing green eyes locked with hers as Luke’s grip on her arms slowly loosened.

Gina felt a jolt in the pit of her stomach. Despite Dominic’s warning to blend in, she sniffed the air. She had to. Something about this man called to her animal nature. But there was nothing. Not a trace of the wolf scent. Despite his unbelievable height and incredible physique, only the scent of sandalwood and spice came to her. Disappointment swamped her. He was human.

Luke continued to watch her. Gina knew he waited for her to speak, but her tongue refused to budge. She’d known he would be good-looking, but the newspaper article hadn’t done him full justice. Instead of a suit, he wore casual jeans and a dark blazer. He had the sort of hair that would curl in the rain. She didn’t know how she knew it. She just did. The golden-brown waves were delightfully rumpled in the middle of his head, as if he’d just risen from bed.

Gina gave a tiny moan at the thought of him rising naked from the sheets. He would be gloriously golden, with a tight belly and even tighter buttocks. Physical need rocked her to the core. What was up with lusting after a human? Was it merely the fact he was every woman’s wet dream, or something more?

His sensual lips curved into a sexy smile as he scrubbed a hand over his belly. “Hell of sharp elbow you have there.”

“Oh God, I’m so sorry.” Gina wanted to sink through the floor. Why was she always such a klutz?

“Don’t worry about it.” He drawled in a soft, slow tone.

She’d read he was originally from Jackson, Mississippi. The Southern accent was unbelievably sexy, but not nearly as sexy as the man himself. His face was a mixture of Hollywood leading man and mixed martial arts fighter. He was gorgeous, yet hard. She could easily visualize him serenading a woman one moment, and then fighting to protect her next.

What’s In A Name? by Monette Michaels

 

I’m posting at Love Lust and Laptops today. Come and read about the name for my next book in the Prime Chronicles trilogy (pictured above is Book Two) — and how I came about naming one of the villains of the book.

What’s In A Name? by Monette Michaels.

Love in the Cards — The Wheel of Fortune

Love in The Cards (small)My contribution to the Love in the Cards anthology is now up at Love Lust and Laptops blog.

Here is the direct short link:  Story

This story is a slight departure from my  usual contemporary thrillers and scifi romance series.

I would love to explore the subgenere of BDSM in my contemporary suspense.

Please comment and tell me if you would read my romantic thrillers if my  alpha males became even more dominant in the bedroom.

One commenter will receive a FREE download from my back list as Monette Michaels or Rae Morgan.

CONTEST ENDS ON HALLOWEEN!

Thanks! — Moni

Love in the Cards — Free Stories Just in Time for Halloween

Love in The Cards (small) The Love Lust and Laptops ladies who brought you Lucky’s Charms have done it again.  Beginning October 14th and continuing on through October 25th, the talented authors of the Love Lust and Laptops Blog are providing you free stories just in time for Halloween.  No tricks, just treats.

The unifying set up is the mysterious owner of Dacre House in the Garden District of New Orleans has invited selected people to his annual Halloween Party.  Each attendee receives a half of a Tarot card and when they find the person holding the other half — well, you need to read the stories to find out.

The Schedule is as follows:

October 14th — Jack of Hearts — Jianne Carlo

October 15th — Three of Cups — Becca Jameson

October 16th — Two of Wands — Vanessa North

October 17th — Two of Cups — Parker Kincade

October 18th — The Star — Christy Gissendanner

October 21st — The Strength of a Lion — Lynn Lorenz

October 22nd — Judgement Day — Rosanna Leo

October 23rd — The Empress — Cherie Nicholls

October 24th — The Wheel of Fortune  — Monette Michaels

October 25th — The Lovers — Emilia Mancini

And as we did with Lucky’s Charms, all ten stories will be bundled into a single e-book with pub date and on-line retail sites to be announced soon after the stories end.

As you might have noted, my story is The Wheel of Fortune. Here is the blurb:

Brendan Cooper has lusted after fellow student Abby Hart from afar. When Abby walks into the sex toy party he hosts at the Dacre House Halloween party, Brendan takes fate into his Dom hands and makes sure Abby knows to whom she belongs.

So, mark your calendar for October 14th to get in on the beginning of this ten-day story fest. Or better yet, go to Love Lust and Laptops and follow our blog and don’t miss a thing.
