Sin of the Past by LA Day

Available at Cobblestone Press
http://www.cobblestone-press.com/catalog/books/sinofthepast.htm

Blurb:
The past has a way of catching up with you and sometimes you’re glad it does. Freshly divorced, Sara is skipping town and looking for adventure. However, she’s about to discover an erotic adventure with the one man she thought she’d lost forever.

Cein Creedon walked away from Sara when she chose another man over him. However, she’s free now and Cein has waited about as long as he can. It’s time he reminds her why he was nicknamed Walking Sin.

Excerpt:

Blood began to pump rapidly through her veins as she gazed at him. He looked like a man who would know how to please a woman. She looked at his large hands, with long, tapered fingers as he raised his fork to his mouth. His generously full lips parted, and his hand hesitated. She glanced up to meet his gaze across the room. Her breath caught in her throat. He had dark eyes, almost black, and they burned into her flesh.
An erotic film rolled through her mind. Stretched out naked on a bed, her body contorted in pleasure as a man feasted between her thighs. Her pussy spasmed in urgent release, and the man’s head rose. Those same black eyes gleamed at her from a face years younger.

Sara gasped as her panties dampened with familiar need. It couldn’t be, not after all these years. “Cein Creedon,” she whispered, her lips trembling.

Cein, better known as Walking Sin, back in town after all these years. Grabbing her purse, she threw a twenty on the table and ran from the restaurant. Sprinting to her car, she slammed the compact’s door and gunned the engine. She had to get away before she embarrassed herself beyond redemption. Small towns were known for gossip and ever since Mike left, she’d been hiding from the whispers of failure. She could only imagine the reaction if she spread herself on Cein’s table and asked for a repeat performance of the one unfinished night they’d shared. At that thought, her upper thigh muscles tightened, and her pussy gushed. Damn, she needed a man. A mindless fuck with an anonymous stranger ought to ease her lust. An annoying voice in her head doubted a stranger could ease the arousal Cein inspired all too easily.

Cein watched Sara run from the diner with an amused smile. She wouldn’t get very far. Standing, he stretched his legs. Sara had forgotten her package, but he wouldn’t mind delivering it. Peeling off a few bills, he dropped them on the table and collected Sara’s gift. He peeked under the glittery paper and raised a dark brow. A chuckle escaped his lips. It would be his pleasure to deliver the item. He knew exactly what he would do with it. Whistling, Cein headed for his bike. It was about time he taught Sara that the only place she could run was into his arms. The last time, he’d followed her wishes and left town. This time, she would bend to his will.

He hadn’t been able to help overhearing Sara and her friend’s conversation. If Sara was hungry for sex, he would be the man to feed her. He would teach her exactly what she had been missing all these years.

Cover for Prey!

News!

I received a contract for Companion Operation from Ellora's Cave, more details to follow.

Prey has a release date of 2/13/09 from EC!

& a new review:

Warrior of the Past, reviewed by JERR

Rating: 4/5

Snippet:
“Ms. Day has written an amazing story of self discovery and love. Though this is a sequel, it works well as a standalone book. Bear Claw's transition from past to present is both hilarious and touching. He is everything a warrior should be...confident, stubborn and deadly.” Reviewed by T.S. Peters at JERR

Read full review.

I received the I Love Your Blog Award!



I’ve been given the I Love Your Blog Award by Nicole Austin. I’m stoked to get this award from Nicole. I think it’s because I stalk her blog.

Now, I’m supposed to give this award to seven other blogs, which is tough because there are so many great blogs out there.

Paige Tyler: Paige is a friend, a great author and the co-owner of an alpha male yahoo group with me.

Lisa Andel: Lisa is awesome and visiting her blog for Thursday Thirteen is an experience!

Shelley Munro: Love Shelley’s work. What more can I say?

Susan Helene Gottfried: Susan is unique and I love her blog.

Maddie James: A friend and a great writer I love to keep track of through her blog.

Jambrea: She doesn’t need a last name because everyone knows her.

Sunlight Sucks: I just found this blog when the owner joined my alpha male group. Another alpha male lover and a unique blog.

Gift Ideas

It’s that time of year again; time to start the dreaded Christmas shopping. I don’t have a lot of people on my shopping list. A few years back, all the brothers and sisters stopped buying for each other. So, that leaves me shopping for my dh, my daughter, 2 teenage nieces and my mil. Sounds easy, right? Wrong!

My daughter is easy. I take her shopping and I buy her gift cards because I know nothing I buy will please her. My nieces get gift cards too (they are teenage girls) I’m not crazy enough to try to please them.

I’m not sure what to get the dh this year. We agreed not to spend a lot but that doesn’t make it easier.

Then we get to my mother-in-law. I always get her some Hadley Pottery; it’s a local pottery that we both love. I usually get her a book too. Not one of mine! Last year, I got her a book on Steve Irwin. She loved it. Any recommendations? She likes biographies, true-life books, war books, the sort of book I don’t read. LOL! She doesn’t read romances or erotic romances.

Any great present ideas appreciated.

Presentation ideas

Hello,

As some of you may know, I was elected President of my local RWA chapter for 2010. I am President-Elect for 2009. The President for 2009 wants my opinion/help for her term. We are attempting to set a schedule of workshop/presentations for the year. I am also looking for ideas for my term.

We have a small group, approximately 30 members. I have already agreed to do a presentation on writing love/sex scenes. I’m also considering a presentation on character creation…creating the alpha male.

As writers, what workshops/presentations would interest you?
What about POV’s, plots, query letters, synopsis…?

We only have 3-4 published authors that attend the meetings so I’m reluctant to offer presentations on promotion/what to do after you have a contract.

I would really appreciate your ideas/thoughts on this.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Laura/LA Day
