A lLittle Shameless Promotion

Red Hot my current release with Siren Bookstrand received another review this week. This one is from Coffee Time Romance and Reviews. I'm posting it below for your reading pleasure.

My work week has been screwy to say the least. We've updated our evaluation process and with that created new certificate programs. I'm on one of the tasks groups that over sees one of the certificate programs. Since a few people are Redskins fans (come on we're based out of Metro Washington DC area), burgundy played a large part in the color layouts. I've looked at certificates and color combinations until I'm liking black and white plain sketches over living color. Ah, well a good night's sleep and a different color pallet will help.

Driving home the other night, I noticed deer grazing on the Manassas Battlefield Park area I live near. I glanced at the car clock and realized it was growing dark at 6:45pm. Mornings are darker when I leave. A week ago, sun was up and blinding as I drove. Seasonal change is definitely upon us. Don't know if fall colors will be a vibrant this year. The lane I drive down to reach my office has a canopy of trees over parts of it. Some years the colors are gorgeous and so rich in hues. I love fall because for me it's as though everything is alive celebrating their existence with color and foliage or form. Hmm, maybe it's the last party before the long slumber of winter takes over.

What season is your favorite? Why?

Have a great weekend!

Brent Stephens is the Fire Chief and lead emergency medical technician. He loves his job as a firefighter.

Bunny Kater owns Kater’s CafĂ©, a restaurant where the firemen frequent for hot meals and hot coffee. She came to Virginia to get away from the memories of her deceased husband.

Due to work that needs to be done on his place, Brent ends up staying at Bunny’s place. Suddenly what began as a friend offering him help became more as desire takes the place of friendship. But Bunny has issues with Brent being a firefighter, afraid he is going to end up being like her previous husband. Can Brent get her to see past her painful history with firemen and see him for the man he is?

Red Hot was a good book for the most part. Ms. Gordon uses realistic emotions, heartfelt moments, and real-life hurdles in this tale. The problem I had with this tale was that while the emotions for the most part were very real, there were times when there was so much crying going on I wanted to shout, “enough already”. I think the way many of the lesser characters came together to help Bunny and Brent figure out what they wanted out of their relationship was very good. If you like stories that seem to target those who love a lot of emotions, tough decisions, painful pasts, and steamy sex then you will like this novel.

That's a pretty decent review! Nothing wrong with a little shameless self-promotion. It's definitely fall here in Colorado- the aspens are in full glory.

Solara, congrats on your good review. Sometimes, if you don't toot your own horn, no one else will.

Autumn is definitely taking over my tame prairie with the leaves beginning to fall. The sun is setting earlier and the light is more golden-hued.

I like all the seasons, although I am not looking forward to winter this year.

You know it's autumn in Lancaster County when Ephrata shuts down its main street and holds its annual fair there for a week. The fun and the rerouted traffic begin Tuesday. I'll lift a funnel cake in honor of your good review.

Great shares on the seasons gals! Pat thanks cuz I cannot have all the fat in the funnel cake so enjoy! I sat in my kitchen a bit ago after putting away the groceries, looked out the window watching a squirrel jumping from tree to tree and realized the moon had already risen! What an odd feeling to see the sun still shining on the neighbor's houses behind me and know it was streaming in through front windows though rapidly setting. Of course, I could sit in one of my old apartments in the living room and literally watch the sun move across the sky as it set. What an eerie feeling. Reminds us of how much we are a part of the world and it a part of us.
Blessed be to all!
