Happy Halloween!



HAPP
HALLOWEEN!

A few updates...

1. My search for vanilla menage was finally successful! Last night I read COMMANDO COWBOYS SEDUCE THEIR WOMAN by Paige Cameron. It had a M/F/M menage, no hardcore BDSM, no anal, and no crazy sex things that I had to Google to figure out what they meant. It even had a romantic HEA with a baby-on-the-way! (Baby with 2 daddies, hee hee!) 



Some observations about this book...

* The characters ate a lot of sandwiches. And snacks. And beverages. THEY NEVER SKIPPED A MEAL!

* They all had a very keen sense of smell. If things didn't work out on the ranch, they could probably get a job in Paris as a perfumer.

* A romance with three partners is called a "polyromance" according to Siren.

* The story was pretty much what you'd expect with a threesome erotica...instant attraction, etc. BUT this was not an alpha-caveman story. It was what I refer to as a "caretaker" menage...it's every woman's deepest desire. Sure, she wants two hot sexy dudes to cater to her every sexual whim and ensure satisfaction. But more importantly, she wants a foot massage, and her guys to cook for her and do the dishes. (It's pretty obvious a woman wrote this book). 

* The end actually had a pretty cool suspense storyline. I liked it!

Over-all assessment: C+/B- 

I liked it, and I bought the next one in the series! Yee haw!


2. RT Book Reviews has started a 3-part series on self-publishing. Kit Rocha and I are interviewed in the first part of the series. Here's the linkie!


3. TOMORROW IS THE INDIE AUTHOR SYMPOSIUM!



Hope everyone has a great Halloween. Enjoy those horror movies. ONE MORE NIGHT!

Happy Halloween! Now, my dear, you've read everything! Not sure I'd like a caretaker, but neither do I like Alpha-holes.
Have a successful conference. It's gonna be great - next year in California!

I'm not sure I can handle the smell thing.

Juju...I am super proud of myself for discovering vanilla menage!

Penelope said...

Thanks, Julia! I wouldn't turn down the cooking/cleaning thing!

Tasha...yep, that was definitely the weird part. Ahem.
