New Release from Wild Rose Press – Plus, fun facts and favorite lines

This week, I have one new Wild Rose Press release being featured. (And it’s a hot one!)  Please check out the book and follow the author on Twitter and Facebook, etc.

Enjoy the wonderful story, fave lines, AND the fun fact tidbit…

 

Nona Raines with Read to Me, an erotic romance novella

A shared love of erotica leads to one passionate night. Can it also lead to love?

Fun fact: I got the idea for how the characters first meet from an incident I witnessed years ago while riding the bus. A lady passenger accidentally sat on a strange man’s lap! My little writer’s brain saved that up to use someday in a story.

A few favorite lines from the book: 

Had this man actually asked to read erotica with her? Yes.

And was she going to agree? Yes!

********************************************

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of Death Notice – The Northland Crime Chronicles, Book 1A killer has something to say—and he’s using her obituary column to get his point across.

WANT: Will Ferrell. I don’t necessarily find him attractive, but he makes me laugh, a lot. It might get a little annoying being married to him because of his antics, so I’ll stick with wanting him. I know many people, especially normal people, don’t care for his humor, but almost everything he says or does cracks me up. Plus, he’s a really great guy.

WED:  Jimmy Stewart. He’s so precious and vulnerable and such a great actor. It’s a Wonderful Life is a touching, feel-good movie. I think he would make a great husband (once he got past the whole wanting to off himself thing)

WASTE: Tim Allen. I’ve never seen The Santa Clause, so I can only base this on Tim Allen. I don’t hate him, but I like Will and Jimmy much better. Plus, that whole cave man grunting routine has really, really gotten old. And it wasn’t funny in the first place. Ya gotta go, Tim.

********************************************

Linda Carroll-Bradd, author of Wishes On A Star in Sweetwater Springs Christmas, a western historical anthology.

Want: In this movie, Tim Allen showed a vulnerable side and what’s not to like about a man who will do anything not to disappoint his kid.

Wed: Jimmy Stewart is the epitome of a reliable family man who may have his struggles but learns what’s important in life.

Waste: Will Ferrell’s humor is not to my taste and I barely finished watching him in Elf.

********************************************

Nancy Fraser, author of Pushing the Limits Can two high-powered attorneys learn to share the courtroom as easily as they shared the bedroom? Website: www.nancyfraser.ca

Want: Tim Allen … not so much because of any real “appeal” but … let’s face it … the man knows his way around ‘tools’ and batteries! So, if he turns out to be a dud … you can just raid his tool box for what you need to finish the job yourself.

Wed: Jimmy Stewart. Despite his short “mental” holiday in this classic movie, his character was a family man at heart. His love for his wife and daughter, and his gentle character would definitely make him a keeper. Not to mention, in real life, he was married for like forever!

Waste: Will Ferrell … I’m sorry, I don’t get this man’s appeal as a comedic actor. When I watch him, especially in something slapstick like Elf, I actually get the creeps and feel embarrassed for a grown man acting so unbelievably stupid.

********************************************

Darcy Flynn, author of Sealed With a Kiss – Can one kiss seal a young girl’s heart forever?

Wed: Jimmy Stewart is my man to Wed. His tall, lanky, adorable self is so appealing to me. He’s charming, sensitive, a faithful husband and a family man. He’s an unsung hero. I love how he fights the evil money-grabbing villain.

Waste: Will Ferrell, as cute as he is in ELF, is frankly not my type. Way too childlike in ELF and he’s just too crazy for my tastes and needs to go. So long Will.

Want: Tim Allen makes me smile and he’d be great for a fast fling. Even though he’s redeemed later in the film, I’m just not into rosy-cheeked fat men. JI would sure hate to see him die and as for marriage? No thank you! I’ll stick with my Jimmy.

********************************************

M.J. SCHILLER, author of BETWEEN ROCK AND A HARD PLACE, Even rock stars aren’t immune to murder! Website: www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com

Want: Gotsta be Jimmy Stewart, because he’s the only one I find remotely attractive. He’s got kind eyes, and a nice looking face, but is a little too Dad-like to really fill me with desire, if you know what I mean. Although that scene where he’s sharing the phone with Donna Reed is pretty hot…

Wed: Gotsta be Will Ferrell, because he’d keep you entertained for life. Although…he may drive you crazy, too…

Waste: I’m sorry, Tim Allen. I do like you, but I’m not fond of this movie. It’s like you were trying too hard. Thanks for letting me play, Alicia! Happy Holidays to all!

********************************************

Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOEWannabe writer rescues wounded spy while risking her heart.   Website:  www.dianeburton.com

Want: Tim Allen. He’s cute and from Michigan. (Love his “Pure Michigan” ads.) But he’s not exactly husband material.

Wed: Jimmy Stewart. He’s the All-American guy. Sweet, heroic, good spouse and father.

Waste: Will Farrell. He’s just plain dorky. ‘Nuff said.

********************************************

Kathy L Wheeler, author of  Lies That Bind On sale for $1.99!!! Website: http://kathylwheeler.com

Want: Tim Allen as Santa Clause is just too adorable to resist in Santa Clause. His bizarre sense of humor would entertain one for several nights, even if they are all in succession.

Wed: Who would not wed Jimmy Stewart. The man was a general for heaven’s sake. Dependable, sweet, comforting. The guy to go to in a pinch and revel in.

Waste: I can get past Will as a cheerleader! Or Ron Bergeman.

********************************************

Now we’d like to hear from you….which of these Christmas Movie Men would you Want, Wed, and Waste?

Thanks for playing!
