March Madness Blog Hop

I had to google what March Madness meant.  Just being honest.

My thoughts were something like this:
  • People going wild and crazy on green beer.
  • Spring fever
  • People who are twitterpated
  • People who really like to clean getting geared up for spring cleaning
I had no idea it was a sport thing. Shh...I know, I know.  I should know more about sports. And basketball players are tall and I like tall boys...

I do. I'm short. They make me feel all fun-sized.

Now available on Amazon!
Since I had a new release yesterday (Taming of a Sex God), I figured I could work one of those four themes in and still manage to talk about my book.

There's no basketball playing on fantasy islands full of sex gods. So, yeah, nixing that.

But I can giveaway a copy to one lucky commenter on the blog.  See? Still worked it in.

Instead, well, I'll tell you about a memorable basketball game I once played. Teenage me was over at the local high school, on a weekend, in the chilly Ohio rain.
I kept dunking the ball.  I was feeling pretty special. The guys just seemed to freeze when I went to shoot, backing off and staring.

I had no clue what was going on. Until one of my buddies finally said, "So, you're cold?"
Me, "Yeah, how did you know? I can still play."
He snickered.
Me, "What? How did you know? You cold too?"
Him, "Are you aware nipples get hard when you're cold?"
Me, "Huh?"

And I looked down.  Pointy.  Very pointy.

Me, "Weird."
Him, "Yeah, maybe a sweater?"

Anyway, I'm very excited to be included in this blog hop and you can win big- BIG - prizes.

  1. Congratulations on the new release!
    I didn't really know March madness was about sports either. *g*

  2. sounds like another fun book! and us canadians aren't so up on basketball-we're still in the middle of hockey until june! (blich, toothless, frequently concussed guys just don't inspire my lust) in fact most athletes, meh. my ideal guy is someone who can fix things. (of course, without the dreaded plumber's crack)

  3. Congratulations on the new book; you are a new author for me; I will return to like, follow on another in keeping with the rules.
    The excerpt, cover, and intro are very catching! I believe I am going to enjoy reading your work!
    My Dad and I used to enjoy watching the Yankee's on TV, but since he has passed; my Mom prefers not watching any sports, including basketball; which isn't a problem since I love to read! LOL!
    Thank you for the contest!

    Thanks for the giveaway


  8. I wouldn't have thought that teenaged boys would suggest a sweater, lol. At least non of the ones that I hung out with would have. I did know about March Madness, but I am not a sports fan though. Thanks so much for the #MarchMadnessHop and the giveaway.

  10. I am having so much un with this #MarchMadnessHop, thank you for the chance to enter the giveaway.

    I love the basketball story! I can see how it's a game that you will never forget, good or bad for you, either way, quite memorable of a game!! I don't think I've ever been to or played a basketball game in my life but now I really I had, just to have a story. I did used to watch the Harlem Globetrotters on Scooby Doo when I was little, but somehow I don't think that counts.
    Congrats to you on the new book. I am going to check you out (in a non-creepy way!) on Amazon when I am done typing this here posty thing and see what's up with the books and so on. I have a feeling I will be coming away with Amazon liking me again. This hop has been great for introducing me to new books and authors and making Amazon my best friend.

    Thanks again for the chance to enter to win and have a happy March (though not much is left of it).
