It's a 1Night Stand Birthday Party: 200 and Still Growing

I submitted my very first 1NS in November 2011, and when Once Her Man, Always Her Man was released in April of 2012, it was #99 and launched a series within a series that has grown into the Always a Marine series. While several have been 1NS, we've also seen it spin off into Challenge stories, Western Escape stories, and now a stand alone series featuring the men and women of the Marines at Mike's Place and beyond. It's been a truly extraordinary journey. Come celebrate this decadent event and win some really great prizes.

Be sure to join us on Tuesday, October 15th as we celebrate with a Google Hangout. I will be there!

200 One Night Stands!! Join authors of the popular Decadent Publishing series, 1Night Stand, to celebrate its 200th book with a one-time live event! Fierce Dolan is hosting the series creator, {YOU}, and other notable authors to discuss how the series started, where it's going, and every steamy step between! Stop by our On Air Hangout and join in the festivities!

Lucky 13 Trick-or-Treat Blog Hop: My Favorite Halloween Memory

I love autumn. Seriously, I do. Trick-or-treating is also one of those activities that I adored as a child for the fun of dressing up, racing through the dark with my friends, gathering candy and treats and then taking them home to be sorted. When I was a teen, I continued the tradition of dressing up so I could chaperone children I used to babysit for their trick or treating and yes, I scored candy, too. As an adult, I didn't get to trick or treat as often, but I still did the dressing up because it was fun. When I became a parent, well hell, that was the best excuse ever to do dress up. I think my favorite year as a parent on Halloween was when Mini dressed up as Alice in Zombieland and I went as the Queen of Hearts. I chased my little zombie all over the place.

What makes this funnier is that this year, Mini Me scored a starring role in her very first play: 10 Ways to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse!
Happy Halloween!

Thor's Day - Bigger, Better, and OMG Fall TV

It's Thor's Day and in some ways, it's the day we've been waiting for, because everything is back on television. In a little over 35 days it will also be the day before Thor 2 hits theaters and I have a feeling my brain will pop. Let's pause for a moment to look at a preview of Thor 2.

But in addition to the beauty of Thor, we're adding back into the television watchpot:

  • The Vampire Diaries
  • The Originals (just for tonight and then it moves to Tuesdays next week)
  • Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
  • Big Bang Theory
  • The Crazy Ones
  • Elementary
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Scandal

Bazinga! I feel like I'm playing Twister with my DVR--literally!

This is what overload feels like and while Thursdays have always been a big night for television watching (it's the day before payday, and in a government shut down this means even more), but can we say the cup REALLY runneth over.

I know what I'm watching first, what gets DVR'd and what I'll likely be talking about tomorrow. What about you? What's high on your list this Thor's Day? Talk to me about TV!

As Alpha of the Alphas, it's Luka Stanislav's duty to hunt down and eliminate rogue werewolves that have been turned into zombies by an insidious virus. His task becomes infinitely more difficult when alluring Guild officer Marijka Zolinski arrives to investigate the death of her partner.
An irresistible wave of desire draws him to Marijka, and their overwhelming passion signals that Luka has found his true mate at last. But gypsy blood flows hot in her veins—and a bond between wolf and gypsy can never be. Still, after one night
