Welcome Sharla Lovelace!

Hi!  Thanks for having me! 

You may or may not know that the mass market paperback of my last year’s debut THE REASON IS YOU hit the shelves earlier this month on May 7th.  And you may or may not be aware that there are two very hot, very eye-candy-worthy men in that book.  One being oh so physically available, but emotionally on another planet….and the other sizzling on the emotional connection meter, but unable to be touched. 
 new cover!
So what’s a girl to do?

Dani, the main character, already loves the one she can’t have… but that other one she keeps “running into” is doing something to her heart—and body—as well. 

I love these guys so much—because they are simply delicious and worthy of praise.  I even have buttons for them.

They’re worth it.

And I had a few inspirations.  Well, an initial one for sure.  Back in the beginning…wayyyyy back in the seed of an idea that the story was at first….there was only one fact I knew for sure.  That my main character Dani Shane had a mad love for a man she’d known her whole life and could never touch…because he was a ghost.  And in my head after watching season after season of Moonlight (yeah, way back then) and the sexiest vampire I’d ever known…always wearing black… that all-black-wearing ghost had to be Alex O’Loughlin.

And his character’s name became...ahem…Alex.  Um, yeah, but his last name is Stone so…yanno.  Nobody can prove I was thinking of him when I wrote it.  And I trust y’all.  You wouldn’t sell me out, right?  Or then maybe you should, and Alex O’Loughlin would read about it, and decide he needed to read that book, and then decide he needed to play that part, and go talk to directors about optioning the script, and then…and then…he’d call me at home and say he needed to come talk to me in person about it… 

*deep sigh*

So here you go…some Alex eye candy.  With commentary from me.  J


in his vamp days…all in black. Alex Stone the ghost was born here.

Him on Hawaii Five-O now. Yum.

And below is my favorite picture of all time…
Yes yes yes…

Now, to be fair to Jason, the other hottie…. Here’s a thought…

 or two…                

As my thanks for letting me come chat you up today, I’m giving away a signed tote bag (see below), with that sexy bookmark and the button of your choice above pinned to it. (yay!)  I’ll pick a random commenter tonight!
 (love the red!)  
 (love this bookmark!)

Enjoy the pics and good luck with the win!
