Fools For Luv, Hunky Brothers, and Good Scottish Medicine



I threw my back out again, and it's very slowly getting better. This post may be a bit of a mish mash. Here we go!


1. Please stop by the FOOLS FOR LUV blog today. Julia Rachel Barrett and I did a super fun post about tasty tropical treats to serve your loved one for Valentine's Day, including a recipe for Julia's Tiny  Thai Pulled Chicken Sammies and my own favorite Mango Martini. We are also giving away books. Happy Early Valentine's Day!

2. I threw my back out twice last week. Here are some of the helpful hints from friends and family about treating this hideous ailment....

* Drink hard liquor.

* Stretch more.

* Go to the chiropractor to get an "adjustment" (I'm not sure what an adjustment is, but that sounds scary).

* Take drugs. Lots of drugs. A mixture of muscle relaxants, pain killers and other exciting things.

* Read porn.

* Watch asinine Syfy made-for-television movies and other assorted horror films.

Who needs a doctor?

3. Since I was laid up in bed with a bad back, I figured it was finally time to read Maya Banks' cray cray Colter Brothers series, where three handsome, hunky, horny brothers find an unconscious woman lying in a ditch and instantly decide she's the woman they want as their (collective) wife. She's a virgin, of course. Needless to say, it all works out in the end, although I'm not sure how the woman could walk the next day after servicing all three brothers. At the same time. Over and over again. Best part of this silly series? The woman has three sons and guess what happens with them? Yep, that's right. They all fall instantly in love with a beautiful homeless woman and have a good old-fashioned 4-way marriage.

What? That could totally happen!

(Did I mention they're all gorgeous and hunky?)

4. After finishing the Colter Brothers series, I decided to take some Scottish medicine in the form of Hannah Howell's Highland Knight. This book was a little bit long for me, but I was completely immersed in the story about a feisty wee lassy and her big, brooding Scottish abductor. Yum! My back sure felt a lot better by the end of this book. It was a sweet, sexy, lusty story. Who needs pain killers?

5. My awesome website designer, Sharon Breitbart, made me a new author site for Nina Clark, author of LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE. It's adorable! We included balloons, goofy dogs, sunflowers, and lots of pics of the real Lucy. Please check it out!

That's it, folks! Happy Monday,
Penelope

I hope your back gets better, and how have I not tried that series by Maya Banks? It sounds right up my alley.

Thanks, Juju!

Thanks, Colette! Read that series at your own risk. As long as you know what you're getting yourself into...I guess it's OK. It's cray cray!

Penelope said...

Hi CBrand! I read that Maya Banks series with a BIG grain of salt. So, good luck! Hee hee!

Yikes on the back pain. Hope you heal up quickly! Glad you had some good fiction to keep you distracted from the pain!
