Today's Special - - Tawny Weber
When Tawny Weber is not dreaming up sexy stories for Harlequin Blaze, the busy wife and mom spends her time gardening, crafting, scrapbooking, homeschooling her children, lusting after gorgeous shoes and Johnny Depp (not necessarily in that order) and running her Intuitive Consulting business. Frankly, I don't know where she finds the time to write! She also blogs at the Romance Bandits and runs her own blog. You can find more information about Tawny at her website, visit her blog here and catch her at Romance Bandits here. You can also find her on facebook or follow her at Twitter. Please welcome Tawny as she talks about the joys of indulging!
Oh, The Joy of Indulging
by Tawny Weber
Hey there, Dishers! I love visiting the Romance Dish, it’s always fun and the ladies here are awesome. I really appreciate them having me here to talk about my new release, RIDING THE WAVES. I had such a good time writing this story because it let me explore the concept of indulging in fantasies. Forbidden Fantasies, in this case. Drucilla Robichoux is, well, just a smidge uptight. She has a serious job, a serious need to succeed and a few issues. When the story opens, the main issue she is worrying over is her dismal sex life. Poor Dru’s having horrible luck with the brainiacs she dates, so her best friend suggests she take a vacation and indulge in some wild vacation fantasies with the hottest boy toy she can find. Dru instantly dismisses the latter suggestion, but figures she can use a vacation before she starts what she’s hoping is a career-launching project.
On her first night at the luxurious beachside resort her boss recommended, she takes a walk on the beach. She watches the sexiest mans she’s ever seen surf, the waves carrying him across the sunset like something out of a very hot (dare I say it? Yeah… and very wet) dream. She’s captivated watching him walk toward her, the setting sun casting a golden glow on the water droplets sliding down his buffed body. When he stops to talk to her, he flirts and makes her feel things she’s only read about. Breathless, she has to decide. Indulge? Or deny herself what could be the Fantasy of a lifetime.
Sooo, I hope readers have as much fun reading RIDING THE WAVES as I had writing it. I think PJ is even giving away a copy of the book today! (That's right, Tawny! We're giving away a signed copy of RIDING THE WAVES to a randomly selected commenter from today's blog!)
But first, let’s talk about some of my favorite indulgences. There are so many kinds of indulgences, aren’t there? Because I love lists almost as much as I do indulging (or thinking about indulging, since I often feel deprived which is an entirely different blog post altogether) I jotted down a few of my faves.
Let’s count the many delicious ways…
2. An aromatherapy massage
3. Starting the latest Nora book at 11pm
4. A Mediterranean Cruise
5. Vacation without the kids
6. Sleeping late Saturday morning
7. A paraffin mani/pedi
8. Louboutin shoes
9. A slice of seven-layer chocolate fudge cake. With extra whipped cream.
What is your favorite indulgence? Are these things you actually get to indulge in on occasion, like Thanksgiving dinner, or things you dream of indulging in, like Louboutins or a fancy cruise? Or maybe, like Drucilla’s indulgence in RIDING THE WAVES, is your dream indulgence a hot wild vacation fling with a sexy boy toy?
Aaaand, as you can see, I’m missing number ten in my list of delicious indulgences. Whichever indulgence I draw will not only be number ten on my list (whoohooo, right?) but also receive a book of their choice from my backlist.
