Chocolate and Roses Blog Hop and Giveaway


Welcome, everyone, to the Chocolate and Roses Blog Hop and Giveaway. Is there anything better than chocolate and roses? I say there is! Erotic romance. Well, okay, maybe not better, but certainly a close second. :) I wanted to introduce you to my upcoming erotic romance release from Siren Publishing, Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack. It's set to release on May 23rd and then the howling begins. No, not the werewolves per se, more like me jumping for joy for my debut Siren release.
Russell Crowe as Jeff Lightfoot

Publishing Queen Bitch is a dream come true, not only did Siren pick the story up, but it started out as a dream I had one night. Russell Crowe starred as Jeff Lightfoot and I strolled around in Julianna Morris' shoes for a while. Can you imagine spending time with that grin and those smoldering eyes? It was a good night! ;) When I woke up, I told my husband the whole story then hurried down to the computer to start writing it all down.

Here's the blurb:

Julianna Morris didn’t know werewolves existed…until she became one.

Hiding her new identity, Julianna returns home only to find her teenage crush, Jeff Lightfoot, is the future Alpha of the Callowwood werewolf pack. She’s unexpectedly chosen as a candidate for the pack’s next Luna, the Alpha female—and Jeff’s mate. This is perfect, except Julianna knows nothing about being a werewolf, and someone’s determined to make her fail the Seven Tests of the Luna.

Jeff Lightfoot lusted after Julianna for years, even when he thought she was human. Now she’s home and all his—if she passes the tests. She’s his True Mate and he wants no one else, but pack politics trump Mother Nature and will prevent him from choosing Julianna if she fails.

For the future she wants, Julianna must pass the tests to become Queen Bitch of Callowwood—or watch Jeff take another woman as his mate.

In celebration of both great dreams (chocolate and roses count) and this new release, I'm giving away a digital copy (winner's choice of format) of Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack to one lucky commenter who leaves a valid email address or Twitter handle, and answers the following question:

Do you have vivid dreams, and would you write them down if you did?

The blog hop runs from Sataurday, May 5th through Wednesday, May 9th. The winner will be announced here on the blog on Friday, May 11th. The giveaway is open internationally, though void where prohibited. This is an erotic paranormal romance, so you must be over 18 yrs old to win. You don't have to follow my blog to win, but I'd sure appreciate it. :)

There are many other authors participating and many other chances to win fabulous prizes. Just click on the links below and you're off. Thanks for stopping by, good luck, and happy reading!

  3. I have very vivid dreams...would I write them - not for a romance. I have wild fantasies - that's what I use in my books.

  4. Congrats on the release date, Siobhan! I'm really looking forward to reading this tale. :)

    Every once in a great while I remember my dreams, but they aren't usually good book material. Although... there was the one with the space alien pirate ships...

  5. oh gosh, i've had some real doozies when i dream. they're weird, to say the least. if i had the writing talent like you and other great authors, then i definitely would. unfortunately, i can barely write my name. if i were going to write a book, though, it would totally be about growing up in the rural south and my family's antics. i swear i could write a bestseller in non-fiction just about them! one day, i might. lol. it would be worth it just to see their expressions.

    thanks for participating in a great blog hop!

  6. I do remember many of my dreams and have a good way of remembering them. If you are waking up as you are just finishing one firstly, don't move but keep on the same side you are lying because by putting pressure on a different side of your head invariably makes you lose the dream (so if your dream was of a handsome hunk making mad passionate love to you and you want to keep it going - stay still!) and secondly if you want to remember it recite it to yourself as if you are telling someone else about it. The more you recite it the clearer it stays!

    1. Wow, I didn't know that turning your head would shift the memory. I'll definitely stay still the next time some stud is visiting me! Thanks for commenting, Jennifer. :)

  7. Very exciting, congrats on the release! Such wonderful inspiration. :)
    No, I rarely remember more than a brief scene of any dream, though some are so vivid they play like movies in technicolor. Luckily, my muse is hyperactive, so tosses me more story ideas than I can handle!

    1. My dreams are in color, too. It's amazing how vivid they can be. Thanks for commenting. :)

  11. I don't remember them every night, but when I do they are in vivid color and I don't need to write them down, because they are memorable. Although also because some are just downright weird!

    There have been a couple instances where I have written things in my sleep. That was really weird to wake up to.

    1. LOL you wrote them down IN your sleep? Wow, you're talented. :) I bet it was strange to wake up to that. Thanks so much for stopping by, Rae. :)

  12. I have to say that most of my dreams end up getting written down and some have already been used in my book writing. The ones that haven't been used yet have a place somewhere in my next few stories I just need to figure out where.

  14. I do sometime have vivid dreams, but they are never as interesting as yours apparently are. :) I've been tempted to write certain dreams down, but I can't seem to remember them very well once I wake up.

    Your books sounds so good. I do love werewolf stories. :D So congratulations on the upcoming release of Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack.

    1. LOL, yes my dreams get pretty weird, wild, and wicked. :D Queen Bitch is the first one I wrote down, but I have at least three more coming that started that way too. Thanks for stopping by, Pam. :)

  15. I do have very vivid dreams. Sometimes they are horrific, sometimes they are downright stupid funny. And yes, I have written my dreams down. Not the really scary ones that are so real that I've had to check my family to make sure they were alright.

    1. Julianne, I've had a couple of those where I woke up and had to go check on family, sometimes extended family. It's amazing how realistic they can be. Thanks for commenting. :)

  16. I've had some pretty vivid dreams and the strange one. I have two journals that have what I could remember written down in them. There is one that I always remember when the talk of dreams comes up and it involves space vampires but I haven't written it yet.
