Six Pack Stud-a-Thon

Welcome to the Six-Pack Stud-a-Thon!

Initially when I signed up for this hop I thought I would talk about one of my favorite faces in Hollywood... Robert Pattinson. He's pretty popular these days. He's the staring vamp in the Twilight series and the focus of the new Dior campaign. Have you seen those pictures? No one broods better than him ;) He's come a long way since playing Edward Cullen. When I look at pictures of this guy I giggle over the fact that I'm 13 years older than him. When did I become a cougar? 

Anyway, since I don't own the rights to any of Mr. Pattinson's recent sexy shots I decided against posting them here.  You can Google the images from the Dior campaign if you're curious. Instead I wanted to feature one of my favorite cover models. He's on the cover of two of my books and I've used his image in a trailer of mine for another book. I don't know his name but I often refer to him as Logan, Master of the Inn...

Look at those eyes! And his biceps totally do it for me. I'm sure you've seen his face on several romance covers these days but I think his look works. Its one of those versatile looks that you don't often see in a model. He can look casual and fresh in some of the shots I've seen him in. But he can also appear older and more distinguished in others...

That's one of my faves of him! The stubble on the jaw gets me every time. When I wrote Logan (who is part of the Pleasure Inn series) I envisioned him to have a strong jaw line and piercing eyes. The kind of eyes that will make a girl drop her panties and do whatever he says. You know what I'm talking about. 

The Pleasure Inn series launches with Master of the Inn. This is book one in a multi-book series that centers on Pleasure Inn and the couples who spend a weekend indulging in their fantasies. The first book introduces us to Logan and Elyse and we learn how the inn came to be. Each book to follow will feature a new couple but the reader will be able to keep up with Logan and Elyse's relationship as they progress. The books can be read out of order but Master of the Inn sets the stage.

I'm currently working on a holiday steamy short featuring Logan and Elyse from Master of the Inn...

Available in November.


I'm giving away an eBook copy of Master of the Inn and a $5.00 Amazon Gift Card to a lucky commenter.

Pleasure Inn… Where all of your fantasies become reality.
Executive chef Elyse Clapton has had it with city life. She’s spent the last few years building her cheating boyfriend’s trendy New York City restaurant into a success. When their relationship ends, so does her desire to be in his kitchen. She flees to a quaint inn she remembers visiting as a child. She gets more than she bargains for when she meets the sexy, reclusive inn keeper.
Handyman Logan Cole inherited Pleasure Inn against his wishes. Ever since he got caught up in a scandal involving another man’s wife, he keeps to himself – finding solace in a bottle. He didn’t realize how lonely he’d become until Elyse shows up on his porch. He’s instantly drawn to her and convinces her to stay at the Bed and Breakfast.
Elyse comes to town looking for a getaway. She never expects to fall for Logan. It doesn’t take her long to believe the inn’s motto. Logan’s dominance in the bedroom makes all of her fantasies a reality.
Book One in the Pleasure Inn Series
