Well I finished edits on Rough Justice. YAY. Here is the blurb
It is not Roxanne Savage’s night…but it will be.
Five miles from home, in the middle of nowhere, she runs out of gas. Unable to reach her best friend, Jay Turpin, on his cell, she calls local sheriff—and current object of lust—Ivan Soto.
For six months Ivan and Roxie have been playing a game of cat and mouse. Coming to her rescue on a deserted country road, Ivan finally has Roxie right where he wants her—assuming the position up against her car, with her legs spread.
When Jay rushes to Roxie’s to make sure she’s made it home safely, he discovers her in the custody of Sheriff Soto, experiencing a little Rough Justice. Jay loves to see Roxie having a good time, but if Ivan wants to frisk her further, he’ll have to learn to share.
So my question for today--
Do you have any secret weapons for getting out a speeding ticket? Have you ever flirted to get out of a ticket? I was able to get out of a ticket, but not by flirting. I was about 8 months pregnant and as big as a house. I'd had a decaf latte. I told the cop that I couldn't wear my seal belt or I'd throw up. (which was true) I was only going a couple of blocks, and he kindly said, hope you feel better. I swear he only had sympathy because I barely fit behind the wheel. lol

Today I just wanted to tell you about the upcoming promotion from the Wilder Roses.

(see yesterday's post for yesterday's winner)
Today I'll be giving away a gift certificate to The Wild Rose Press.
this weekend I got stuck watching the Halmark channel. the Love Comes Softly saga was on and I found myself watching one after another and not getting much of anything else done. Confession two- I love the Little House on the Prairie series. And Anne of Green Gables. Oh hello- I'm sharing my dirty little secrets. lol
I balance it with a love for action/adventure. Like the Bourne Movies and X-Men Movies.
so for my question.
If you could travel back in time, which era would you visit and why?

The Perfect kisses
Butterfly Kiss - Brush your eyelashes against your lover.
Cheek Kiss - The perfect way to say I like you. With your hands on your partner's shoulders, gently brush your lips across her cheek.
Earlobe Kiss - Gently sip and suck the earlobe.
Eskimo Kiss - touching and rubbing noses
Melting hot Kiss - Kiss your partner with a small piece of ice melting on your tongue.
French Kiss - Mouth, lips and...tongue. mmmm.
Hickey Kiss - also know as the get your ass kicked kiss. lol
Lip Sucking Kiss - When kissing gently suck on your lover's lower lip.
Quickie Kiss - When you're in a rush. Often the nose gets it rather than the lips.
Good morning kiss - Gentle kiss your lover's face, until finally brushing his mouth with yours.
tomorrow we can chat about the best places to kiss ;)
Where is the sexiest place you've ever been kissed? When I used to live in Redondo Beach, I can remember long walks on the beach with my husband. The sound of the surf crashing into the spongy shore. Kisses where I could taste the salt and sea on his lips. the air was chilled just enough that his hands were warm on my arms. It was nice.
Now he gives me a peck on the way out the door. :)

Good morning everyone,
sorry I'm late with my post. truthfully I have no idea what to blog about. lol. Last night I was listening to Matchbox 20 and working on Rough Justice. There is something totally sexy about Rob Thomas' voice. I think I could fall in love with a good voice. Love those smoky bedroom eyes and of course strong body.
but back to music. I also have to put on good sing along country to clean the house. And when I exercise I have to blast music and turn the turbo fan on high.
Do you use music to get you in the mood...for anything and have an new favorites I can check out?

With or Without You by KyAnn Waters coming to Samhain Publishing Sept. 23rd!
So what makes a book cover for you? Hot hero, scenerie, do you care? And do you ever buy a book based on the cover? How important is the cover? If a cover was aweful, would you skim past the book or would you still read the blurb to see if it's something you'd like to read? I admit, if the cover doesn't hook me I'm likely to keep browsing. I don't want to read every blurb. I want the cover to convey the tone and content of the story. I'm happy with all of my covers except Marion's Train. While I think the cover is lovely, it doesn't fit my dark haired, exotic, soiled dove from my book. Marion is a firecracker and the woman on my cover looks regal.
So winner today gets Hot Blooded and a bonus prize for going to my website www.KyAnnWaters.com and emailing me (don't post it here otherwise you give away the answer :)) at email@example.com and since we're talking about a picture telling a story. tell me the names of my dogs.

Blurb: Jamie's daughter is getting married and now Jamie has to endure a weekend with her ex-husband and his new wife, the home-wrecking trollop. Jamie can be nice…yeah right. The asshole doesn't deserve nice. However, Jamie's bitterness just might be sweetened when young and sexy best man Mark Bentley arrives for the rehearsal dinner. Oh Yum! He might prove to be just the distraction Jamie needs. And if the ex has a problem with it…good.
Only Mark isn't interested in a little flirtation with the mother of the bride. He'd like the cougar to scratch her nails down his back. Will she invite him into her bed…or will he have to fuck her on the floor?
I'm so excited. Last night I received edits for Rough Justice, coming soon to Ellora's Cave. I've also submitted a new story to my editor this week so keep your fingers crossed.
With or Without You is coming to Samhain Publishing Sept. 23. Edits are done and I'm just waiting for approval on my cover then I can post. It is absolutely beautiful and sexy as hell.
Today I'll work on edits then tonight spend some time with my WIP. It's raining in Utah. Good day for coffee and a good book.
Enjoy your week. I'm going to post excerpts of Impulsive Pleasures in the comments. They are explicit.
Today, tell me anything.

Alone, Twila Deeds tries to find her lost brother and stumbles upon a cult she believes is preparing to sacrifice her in a Valentines-Day sex ritual. She learns her brother has joined the cult and claims to be saving her by bringing her into the fold. She can't trust her brat brother, a selfish teen who never did anything for anyone. Nor dare she trust the cult's gorgeous member who arrives to escort her to the cult's Scottish castle on his motorcycle. She has no intention of falling victim to the sacrificial blade before her baby brother is served his just dessert. But Illusion manifests as free will. (1st Point of Time Travel)
Gerard Abercrombie can't seem to convince Twila that his time-travel brotherhood has only her welfare in mind before his patience wears thin. Time-travel Code will save him because only the fairies know what the future holds as the Gods send two SACRIFICIAL HEARTS racing toward their destiny.
Skhye is an amazing writer and good friend. She is also participating in the 31 Days of Christmas in July so don't forget to visit her blog.

She turned, glanced at the other vehicle, and groaned. Oh, her insurance rates were bound to take a hit, no doubt about it. She’d placed a lovely dent in the bumper of a fine BMW. Said bumper was barely attached to one end of the car. The other end rested on the street. A bit more damage than a typical fender-bender, but, hopefully, easily repaired.
Oh, perfect. The man she’d hit already had the officer’s rapt attention.
Nervous perspiration dampened the band of her bra. Squinting against the early morning sun, she pushed her sunglasses up her nose. No way would a smile get her out of this one. It shouldn’t have to. The damn light was yellow!
So much for not being late for the first day on the job. And she’d almost made it, too. Only two blocks from the office building, and she had to be behind the only man who didn’t know to hit the gas, and not the brakes, on yellow.
The man pointed to the light, pointed to the cars, and finally pointed at her as she approached. Good grief, it was a simple little fender-bender. If he could afford a BMW, he should be able to afford a dent.
“Excuse me,” Jessie interrupted. Oh my, the man was tall. She’d never been considered petite, yet she had to crane her neck to look into his face. The breadth of his shoulders blotted out the sun. Sandy blond hair and green eyes to swim in. Jessie marveled at the intense impact his physical appearance had on her tummy. Her heart jumped from an apprehensive beat to a fluttering tempo. Perhaps she should have checked her relationship forecast instead of her financial.
Her gaze traveled from his broad shoulders, stiff with tension, down the muscular chest that tapered to a trim waist. She swallowed hard. Thick thighs were encased in black Dockers. Those heart flutters drifted lower and morphed into a sexual twitch between her legs. She licked her upper lip. Nice package. She didn’t know what he did to afford a BMW, but the man wore working casual like a male model.

"Are you alone?"
The soft whisper rasped through the cell phone, but Jack Hartwell recognized his best friend's voice and figured what Lori really wanted to know was whether his roommate had left yet. "It's just me."
"What are you doing?"
Her hushed tone triggered his guilt. Adam had dumped her the week before, and she'd been hiding in her apartment next door, dodging Jack's attempts to check on her. He'd been the one to set them up and soon realized his mistake. He hated that she'd been hurt, but he was glad they'd broken up and was biding his time until she healed before he made his own move.
Hoping that time had come, he settled into the black leather recliner she helped him pick out almost a year ago and muted the volume on the television. "Watching the game."
"What are you wearing?"
Monday, July 14, 2008
She backed up a step. "W-what are you doing here?"
Her girlhood hero was invincible. The hero who always saved his lady from all harm, who knew when to bestow a kiss, and never pressed her into an uncomfortable situation. This man was anything but those things.

It's going to be Hot in Utah today and I thought I'd share a bit about my newest release with The Wilder Roses.
Blurb: It’s hot as hell in Southern California, and Kelis LeBrun is having a bitch of a time keeping his focus and his fangs off the delicious looking Ms. Loni Soleil. Perhaps if it weren’t so bloody hot, he’d be able to stave off the hunger pangs. But the only way to do that is hot, sweaty sex…something he’d swore he’d never have with Loni. He couldn’t let her know he was a 300 year old vampire.
However, when they become trapped on an elevator during a rolling blackout Kelis discovers Loni has a few secrets of her own.

"KyAnn Waters never fails to thrill me with her storylines and the warmhearted way she presents each and every hero and heroine she brings to life through her writing."
4.5 Cherries Whipped Cream Reviews
"The one thing I look for in a vampire romance is a good bite scene and Kyann Waters knows how to deliver the goods. "Hot Blooded" is sensual, seductive and contains a surprise at the end that simply made me smile in delight.... I believe Ms. Waters to be a master--or is that a mistress?--story teller. In "Hot Blooded", she has taken the stereotypical vampire romance and turned it on its ear, presenting readers with a fresh and novel ending sure to please and amaze.Ms. Waters knows the proper way to write a vampire bite for full sexual impact, how to save a tortured hero and how to give a reader a refreshing, exciting and unique HEA. It’s all wrapped up in a short story aimed at the best of what vampire romances are known for -- a happily ever after you can sink your teeth into.
Today's winner will receive a table top cardboard cutout of Will Turner!

Mitch Carter, the fire boss, doesn't believe the wisp of a woman, who hasn't seen action anywhere but the supply depot, can do the job. Hell, her equipment pack weighs more than she does. He'd give her one chance before sending her back to Missoula. She's more likely to be a distraction. It would be best for him and his teams to have her out of his little house that serves as headquarters for the

Widowed mother of three children, Vivian Ashton is in love with her best friend. He'd held her hand throughout the painful process of losing her husband. The children love him. The problem, it's Uncle Trevor.

Sit or lie on your back. Start at your crown chakra, the top of your head. Imagine the pressure and stress of your day washing away.
Take a deep breath. Exhale. Allow your arms to hang limp at your sides. Focus on your chest, the heart chakra. Love, balance and harmony.
Spiritual and physical energy is centered in the solar plexus chakra. Deep breath. Slowly exhale. Release tension.

And it will probably be your money. Now I’m not the best person to ask for advice regarding battle in the casino pits. I had a lucky turn on the roulette wheel once, then lost it twenty minutes later at the blackjack table. Blame it on the greyhounds, and I’m not talking about the dog races. (For those who aren’t familiar, a greyhound is vodka and grapefruit juice.)
But here are the tidbits of advice I’ve received for gaming hell.
Blackjack- Never play dealer rules, and always hit on a twelve.
In the Cougar Meets Her Master, available at http://www.thewilderroses.com/, Colt challenges Taylor. A night of sex decided on the turn of a card. Taylor knows one thing, the house always wins…or does it?

Blurb: Lord William Ashenhurst is cursed to walk the earth, forced to observe and never know the touch of a living being, until he meets Isabel Derrington. They dare to love, bridging the gap between this world and the next.
My first kiss was in elementary school. His name was Eddy. I ran home crying and told me dad. My first real kiss was 7th grade. I did not go crying home that time. lol but had my first boyfriend.
Do you remember your first kiss?
