Three Wishes For Three Lovers

All you have to do is follow my instructions below for winning the prize I have on offer, and then you can click over to Juliet’s blog to enter her prize draw, and see the list of all other blogs taking part and enter their giveaways as well. How cool is that? Why is it called the Three Wishes Blog Blitz? Juliet’s new  romantic comedy release, I Dream of Johnny, is about three wishes, a high-tech genie in a lamp, and one very unfortunate typo that proves magic isn’t all it cracked up to be…

 Once upon a time in a land far, far away, lived an innocent young woman who believed that sex was not something good girls thought about and they certainly never talked or read about it. Her perceptions were so bland they didn't even qualify as vanilla. She never read Romance, only Crime and Sci-Fi.
Then one day, she walked past a store selling books at a discount. One of books  looked interesting...a blood covered knife and a shadowy couple embracing and the title "Kill and Tell" certainly said Crime.
And that was how I discovered LInda Howard and the Romantic Suspense genre and I have never looked back. Before long i was snapping up every Romance novel I could, in every sub-genre. And I discovered something about myself. I had fantasies, and they involved multiple partners.
I'd wanted to write for years, but never knew what sort of story I wanted to tell. Now I knew. I loved this genre, and those fantasies of mine could fuel my stories. My first foray into the genre was "Ghostly menage." I wrote it, throwing my whole heart( and a few other quite interested bits) into the story of kelsey and her three hot ghosts.
I sent it of to a publisher and had an acceptance before the day was out. You better believe that was my first wish come true.

After that I settled into a pattern of writing the occasional m/f romance, but time after time I returned to the Menage genre. I've written historical menage, paranormal menage and Sci-Fi menage. For me three wishes means something much more earthy than fairy dust and pumpkins at midnight.
In my historical menage The Gardener's Sins, Lady Mary Linden wishes for a more interesting education than is usual for girls of her era. The lessons Drake the gardener, and her cousin Harry give her take her to places she'd never dreamed existed.
 The next novel I have coming out is a sequel to Warrior's Apprentice, called Warriors and Lovers. The plot line is driven by Eora, a feisty Dvalinn woman who has one wish. To find out everything she can about Humans.  In her attempts to fulfil this wish she and her lover Nieko stumble across the human Elijah. Together the three of them must defeat a deadly enemy who has plotted to destroy the Dvalinn race. Only then can Eora, Nieko and Elijah  have the most common wish of all...to live happily ever after.

I have three great giveaways to go with this blog tour. A key chain from Swagmasters designs featuring the cover of The Gardener's Sins: for Australian readers only, a print copy of Watching Amy, (mention in the comments that you are Australian): a PDF of another historical menage, All Romance ebooks best seller A Boudoir for Three. All you have to do is leave a comment, no matter how brief. Just hello will do!
