This Kiss...

This Kiss by Faith Hill is one of those songs I listen to before I write a first kiss scene.

Who said "No woman gets an orgasm from shining the kitchen floor."?

Betty Friedan said it! March is Women's History Month. In my continuing series of Quotes by Famous Women here are some quotes by Betty Friedan, author of The Feminine Mystique and one of the founders of NOW (National Organization for Women)

A girl should not expect special privileges because of her sex but neither should she adjust to prejudice and discrimination.
Aging is not "lost youth" but a new stage of opportunity and strength.
 It is easier to live through someone else than to become complete yourself.
When she stopped conforming to the conventional picture of femininity she finally began to enjoy being a woman.
You can show more of the reality of yourself instead of hding behind a mask for fear of revealing too much.

Such great quotes! Which is your favorite?

Coming soon....

The revisions to my sexy novelette, Real Men Don't Drink Appletinis are complete. I hoping to have it out by March but it still needs line editing and then it's off to the formatter. Keep your fingers crossed.

Here is the cover and a little snippet!

Ava slipped from the stool and slid next to her target. “You know this is a martini bar?” She held up her empty glass. Despite the number of people waiting for drinks, he only had to nod at the bartender to order her a refill.
His gaze then captured hers. “I’m a rebel.”
Ethereal green. That was the only way to describe his eyes. Almost lost in the depth of his stare she forced herself to speak. “So you’re looking for a girl who can belt back a scotch?”
A smile appeared on his face. “That would be asking too much. I’d settle for a girl who liked a cold beer.”
 Still smiling he shook his head. “High maintenance.”
“You came to the wrong place then.”
He handed her the drink and said, “From where I’m standing I’m in exactly the right place.”
