New Year’s Resolutions Blog Hop! #giveaway

NEWYEARSBLOG HOP

 

So I’m not into making resolutions.  I never have been.  I resolve every day to be a better person, mom, wife and daughter.  That’s it.  Life has its ups and downs every day so why make promises that you can’t keep after the first month of the year.

I realize that I sound horrible but I don’t see the point.  I don’t need to lose weight, get right with God, etc.  Okay, maybe I need to quit smoking but that’s about it.  😉  Yes, its my only vice and its a bad one.  As a diabetic I need to quit…badly.  I’ve already dropped over 100 lbs and I’ve never looked or felt better in my life.  Weird huh?

As for making resolutions in regards to reading…just keep reading…just keep reading!

So what are your resolutions or do you even make them?  One winner will win a copy of The Couple by Harlie Williams.

While I’m not offering anything this time around, I have a question for you as an author.  Yes, I’m a published author.  Shocked?

As most know, I don’t particular care for New Adult romance.  Its too angsty for me.  Too much drama, too much “Oh, I need that person to complete me”, too much abuse, sex, drugs, etc.  You get the point.  My 20’s were AWESOME!  I was well adjusted, had a great job, apartment, friends and the occasional date.  I didn’t need a man to complete me.  In fact when I broke up with the high school/college sweetheart I felt a sense of relief.

That said, I love Young Adult.  They are supposed to be drama filled books.  Teenage life is no picnic and I get that.  I remember when I was a teenager.  Everything was tragic and drama filled.  LOL!

So here’s the question:

Would you read a trilogy following the same couple from high school until after college?  Heroine is a year older than hero, they don’t live in the same town, well adjusted, no drugs, no abuse.  Just a story about how two people that didn’t see love coming for them, came anyway.  Dealing with living apart at times (no cheating) and dealing with jealous siblings.  What do you think?

Its what I’m working on now and I love it.  I just feel like no one else will because its a humorous romantic comedy trilogy set in the YA/NA world.

Let me know what you think.

Get Wicked with Entangled Blog Hop! Win an e-copy of The Couple by Harlie Williams

EntADS-halloweenbloghop-2014200x200-3

My giveaway is a gifted e-book copy of The Couple by Harlie Williams.  I hope you enjoy the wicked excerpt.

THECOUPLE200x300

Blurb:

A woman has one thing on her mind tonight…sex. Dirty, sweaty, kinky sex with a cowboy. With her man gone more than he is at home, she needs the release.

After being away for two weeks, a cowboy goes looking for someone to play with for the night. Being away is part of the job but not having someone to come home to is hurting his soul. Feeling disconnected in his love life, the red head will be perfect.

Once they meet, can one night of pure passion led to more than just a one night stand for either of them? Communication is the key to every relationship. Can these two find a way to connect emotionally or are they destined for heartache.

Excerpt (PG-13 for language)

“What’s a girl like you doing at a bar like this?” he asked.

Her voice was a purr, like a cat well satisfied with its stolen pitcher of cream. “I’m looking for someone special.”

Hoping that she meant him he asked, “Did you find him yet?”

“Maybe.” The glint in her eye told him he was definitely in the running.  However, I’m not looking to hook up with just any old cowboy.  He must be able to go the full eight seconds and come back for more.”  She eyed him from head to toe.  “Think you can handle that?”

Oh, I can most definitely handle you sweetheart.

Not wanting to seem too eager he replied, “I’m not sure but I’m willing to try.”

“Do or do not.  There is no try.”  He struggled not to let his grin escape.  The fact that she was trying to seduce him made his dick twitch.

“Let’s just say I’m looking to burn off some pent up frustration. A little excess energy.  And I’ve got plenty to burn.”

The way she shivered at his words, he knew he almost had her.  He winked as she licked her crimson lips and blew out a small breath.  Damn what this woman is doing to him.

He pushed her knees apart with his left leg and was rewarded with the amazing scent of her arousal.  The knowledge she was wet for him had him close to going off in his jeans.

Houston, we have lift-off!

“Why don’t you have a seat cowboy and we’ll talk about it.”

She gasped when he shocked her with a brush of his lips against hers; fighting with everything he had not to deepen the kiss.

Patience, patience.

He would play her game for the moment but sooner or later, she would be his.  Tied up and begging for more.

He asked her, “Now about that eight second ride?”

 

Author Bio:Me in a Texans shirt

When she is not trying to be Super Blogger and reviewing for her own site, Harlie is a stay at home with a 4th grade son that keeps her busy with all of his stuff.  Married for 10 years to her own hero and still madly in love with him, she wouldn’t change a thing about her life.  Okay, maybe living in Ireland or New Zealand but those are just pipe dreams.

A certifiable sports nut, she craves college football (OU Sooners and Texas A&M Aggies), Baseball (Texas Rangers and Houston Astros), Dallas Stars hockey and Houston Texans football.  After working for the Dallas Stars Hockey Club for 5 years and naming her son after Brian Leetch you’d think she write a hockey story.  Nope, been there, done that and the t-shirt is a rag.  She prefers just to watch the game now.  Less stress.

Harlie loves to hear from readers and other authors.  You can find her on Facebook most days.  Unless, she’s sitting in the carpool line.  The bane of her existence.
