Thanks for joining us on our anniversary scavenger hunt! It’s easy to play– first read the blurb below, then answer the question on the Rafflecopter. You might win a $100 Amazon/BN GC.

When the broken road leads you home, we will find each other.

Dare Evans left the small town of Kenton for the bright lights of Hollywood. The moment he climbed on the plane, he missed his college sweetheart. Coming home was always in the cards and a chance sighting is the catalyst he needs. But he’s not alone.

Liam Turner never thought he’d find love so soon after his divorce, but then came Dare. He’s in love and the happiest of his life—but he’s a secret. Dare, the hottest man in the movies, isn’t supposed to be married and certainly not to Liam. Liam’s learned to live with the charade because he knows Dare’s heart…that is until he finds out about Sarah.

Sarah Morrison wants nothing more than to teach at the college, raise her son and live her life. Celebrity was never in her cards. Then Dare and Liam walked back into Kenton. She never forgot Dare…or as she knew him, Daryl. He’s been the only one for her. When she meets Liam, her thoughts change. What if Liam could be the one? What if both men could be? Is she strong enough to withstand the bright lights of fame intruding on her existence?

Can these three people find a way to be together when the rest of the world says they should be apart? When the past joins the present to make a future, love is possible.

The vet turned around and smiled. “You must be Carson Welles. It’s nice to see you.”

I clamped my teeth together to keep from drooling. Eyes the color of the ocean, just enough scruff on his cheeks to cause a light burn during a kiss and those lips. Good thing I had the dog to shield me. I had to get myself under control or he’d call the cops for indecency.

He stuck out his hand. “I assume you can talk.”

I shook my head. “No—I mean, yes I can talk.” My skin crawled. The last man who got to me was my ex, Leon. Fuck. This guy had me forgetting the very manners Mama took years to instill in me.

“I’m glad we got Dragon, here, in when we did. He’s malnourished and needs a dental cleaning.” Dr. Niemi hiked one side of Drag’s jowls up. “He’s been chewing on things he shouldn’t have. I’d like him to come back in for a cleaning and to make sure he’s up to date on his shots. Can you tell me why he was loose?”

I stared at the vet, deciphering his words. I knew he’d spoken English, but I felt so out of sorts. Cleaning… shots… why was he loose? Oh, hell. “My ex took him when we split. Leon wasn’t much for closing doors or gates. My guess is Drag saw an open door and made a break for it. He doesn’t mind being confined if he’s got something to eat or a chew toy to attack.”

Snow and Shifters
by Megan Slayer

I’m outlining the next story in my Sanctuary series and these shifters are always full of surprises. It’s nearly Christmas and they have let me know. They’ve also let me know it’s time for snow.

I had no idea how much my tiger and panther shifters enjoyed lolling in the white stuff. I’m not a big snow fan myself. I’m not wild about driving in it. But the shifters, it’s like a drug. They get wild after a roll in the snow.

I just worked on this scene where a tiger shifter and his lion shifter friend run in the snow. They’ve had a long day and are still getting to know each other, but the spark is there. The thrill of the chilly air, plus the snow under their paws is enough to ignite the spark. When the shifters come back in… it gets hot fast.

Our cats are like that, too. One of them who used to be an outdoor cat, would prefer if we’d give him a chance to run and play in the snow. I don’t because I don’t want him to get hurt, but that doesn’t stop him from sniffing the snow when it falls and he’s ‘assisting’ me when I put out the dogs. He used to run, play and bounce in the snow…oh and disappear (which is hard since he’s a pure black cat.

The same thing kind of works for people, too. I’m not a fan of driving in the snow, but there’s nothing more fun than bundling up and playing in the snow in the yard. Making a snowman or tracks and tossing snowballs at the kids. Then there’s the snuggling up with DH afterwards to warm up.

Yeah, I can’t wait to get back to the shifters in the snow and see what they’ll do next.

What about you? What’s your favorite thing to do in the winter?

Wanted: a shifter. Must be caring, understanding, open-minded and looking for a shifter in return.

Zeus knew from the beginning he was different. Where the other lion shifters had paired up, he was still single. All he wants is a partner and finds a dating app on his phone. Will the app lead him to the man of his dreams or to a disaster just waiting to happen?

Justin isn’t where he wants to be. He knows shifters aren’t supposed to work for the humans, but due to a circumstance that spiraled out of his control…he’s in over his head. He wants out and when he spies Zeus on the dating app, he’s willing to risk everything to get to the lion shifter. He believes Zeus might be the one to help him move beyond his past and unleash his roar.

Will the panther and lion find each other or will Justin’s past keep them apart?

Fun Songs of the Summer

When I’m writing, I love to listen to music. I need to have noise. It’s silly, but if it’s quiet, then I’m not very productive. Now I’ve been on a writing binge this summer and I mentioned needing music. So what’s on my summer music list?

Glad you asked! Here are my top 5 songs:

Catch a Wave by the Beach Boys – it just puts me in a great mood and makes me want to write playful scenes. Plus, it’s a good segue into something a little hotter.

Short Shorts by The Royal Teens – this one is a little older than I am, but I love it. This tune makes me want to write beachy scenes with lots of hugging and kissing in the sand. It kind of makes me wonder about the sand in places, but that lends itself to fun in the shower, trying to get the sand off!

Splish Splash by Bobby Darin – Nice segue, eh? I thought so. Yep, this is the splashing in the tub song, but it’s more. I like the part about everyone joining him in the tub. Does it make me think of a ménage? You bet!

Wild Thing by the Troggs – First, I think of the movie Major League and what’s better than baseball players? The boys of summer!! But I also think of hot, steamy nights and needing to cool off…in inventive ways. That ménage, now with baseball players who may or may not have been on the beach in shorty shorts and sand in dangerous places, is really starting to take shape!

Finally… (this one will date me a bit)

Rush, Rush by Paula Abdul – This one sets the tone for hot times and snuggling. So after all of the theatrics of the day for those baseball players, now they can get comfortable.

What about you? Do you have special songs for the summer? Something a little newer than the ones on my list? Something to recommend? I’m all ears!!

MS_TogetherinCedarwood_coversmBobby Gagnon came back to town in the hopes of starting over. He’s got his kids and his accounting business, but he wants more. One look at the hot guy sharing the running trail with him is enough to stoke Bobby’s fire. He wants to hook up with the sexy runner, but he doesn’t even know the guy’s name. Will the man even want to be with a single father?

Remy Bard never considered himself a kid person or parent material. He’s happy with his job at the Cedarwood Tribune, but it’s not enough. Something’s always been missing in his life. He keeps seeing the same guy at the park—tall, dark, handsome and hot as hell in those running shorts. Although he’s shy, Remy isn’t about to let this guy get away without at least one night together.

These opposites certainly attract, but will their differences be enough to keep them apart or will they find a way to come together in Cedarwood?

Did I Rescue Them or Did They Rescue Me? by Megan Slayer – Guest Blog

Long and Short Reviews welcomes back Megan Slayer who has stopped in to chat with us today.

Did I Rescue Them or Did They Rescue Me?
My latest release, Wild Card, is about a guy in porn who just so happens to be trying to get out of that line of work. He wants to be in mainstream movies. That probably won’t be an easy feat. Then there’s the guy he’s lusting after. He’d love to hook up with the guy, but would the guy really want to be with someone in porn? The not-so-easy feat just got exponentially harder.

But this post isn’t about the people in the book. Not really. It’s about a side character who happens to be vital to the main character. Kris, the porn star, lives next to a person who has a dog. I’d say owns, but the person is a real piece of work and mistreats the dog. Kris feels for the dog and adopts Nugent.

That’s what this post is about. Pets. I’m a huge animal lover, like Kris. I don’t want to see any animal harmed. It churns my stomach. I might not have rescued my pets in the same manner as Kris, but I did rescue critters—six to be exact.

4_12 megan catsOne cat came via an ad. I saw an ad for two orange kittens at one of the local stores. I told DH and it happened that he knew the woman who’d rescued them. She kept one, but the one with the crooked tail came home with DH. He might have a crooked tail, but he’s sweet and loyal and he’s much happier than how he was found—covered in muck and fleas by the side of the road.

Cat #2 came via the neighbors. They seem to be a Mecca for unwanted cats. Since they don’t believe in fixing those cats, kittens are born. One kitten, a little black one, took to my DS. The spunky kitten thought he was a dog, too and became fast friends with the dogs. This cat is DS’s best bud.

Cat #3 was the product of me trying to help a friend. She took in the mother cat and didn’t realize momma was preggers. Oops! I volunteered to take one of the babes. He’s a pistol, but I love him.

Then there are the dogs. #1 came along because we wanted to get a dog to grow up with DS. She swears she’s a person and that DS is her baby. Oh and she’s ultra-protective of DS and DH.

4_12 megan dogDog #2 is all mine. I say that because well, she adopted me. I wanted a beagle or a Bassett hound. She’s a little of both and so loyal, but so stubborn. She decided I was her person and she’s got wicked separation anxiety. Yeah, I have to call my dog to reassure her if I go away.

Now Dog #3 is well…he’s original. We got him because we wanted a noisy dog. Seriously. He fits the bill. He’s also, for a black lab, a horrible swimmer. Yeah. He HATES water. Loud noises are a no-no for him, too. But like the others, he’s loyal. He loves DS. He might be a little pushy—he is 110 lbs of dog, but his heart is in the right place.

See that’s the thing about my dogs and cats. We rescued them, but they really rescued us. They’re the best companions and loveable. The house wouldn’t be the same without all of them. I know the time will come when they’ll eventually leave us—that’s how life works—but I’m glad we’ve had them all.

That’s how Kris feels about Nugent. They’re kindred souls. Nugent was neglected and abused. Kris was, too. The porn industry isn’t exactly kind. When they get together, they save each other. That’s what I loved about writing these characters. I saw myself, so to speak, in them. I hope you do, too.

Want to know more about Wild Card? Here you go!

4_12 megan wildcardFollowing his heart and passion will be his biggest role of all.

Kris Hunter wants out. He’s done pornographic films for the last six years. The pay’s been good, but his creativity is nearly dead. His passion is to act and to be a star on the big screen in mainstream films. When he auditions for famed casting director, Zayn Mason, he’s convinced he’s on the right path. He doesn’t want to take the casting couch route to success, but he certainly wants Zayn in his bed. Can he follow his dreams and the man he desires or will forces beyond his control derail his progress?

Zayn Mason sees the potential in Kris. As a casting director, he looks for the right actor to fill the roles in movies. He’s seen plenty of talent come and go, but no one stirs his soul both creatively and physically like Kris. But Zayn knows the pitfalls of the movie industry. Crossing over from porn isn’t easy and Hollywood isn’t always forgiving. Besides, he’s got demons of his own. Can these men get beyond their pasts and find a future together under the bright lights of the silver screen?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of voyeurism and intimacy with multiple partners.

Christmas Traditions with Megan Slayer

I have quite a few traditions with my family at the holidays, but the one I wanted to talk about today is one that’s purely my own. Sounds selfish, doesn’t it? It’s not. Really. I promise.

One of my traditions during the holiday season is to measure out when I listen to holiday music and watch holiday movies. I’m a stickler for not decorating the house with Christmas lights or whatnot until after Thanksgiving.

Here’s how my tradition plays out: until Halloween, I want to listen to spooky music, Halloween music. I love how it sets the tone. Then once Halloween is over, it’s Thanksgiving stuff. Watching movies about being thankful and so forth. Oh and football. I’ve got to have my football. There’s something about guys in tight pants, running and tackling that does something for me. Grin.

Until Thanksgiving is over—and I mean all the way over—I don’t listen to Christmas music or watch Christmas shows. No decorations either. The day after Thanksgiving though, all bets are off. I’m probably one of the few people who isn’t out shopping, but I am watching the sappy movies on the different channels. I love the romance in the movies and the warm, happy feeling I get from the music, movies and decorations.

Why don’t I get all festive as soon as possible? Seems like I’d want Christmas all year ‘round. That’s just it. I do like the festiveness and the peace of the season. What gets a little old is having Christmas decorations up before Halloween. Ghouls and goblins don’t belong on the same shelf as the elf—unless he’s a spooky elf. I want the whole happy holiday season when it’s time. Let Halloween have its day and Thanksgiving, too. Then let’s go all out for Christmas and New Years.

What about you? What are your traditions? What are your thoughts on Christmas decorations? Let me know. Grin.

Merry Christmas, Darling_finalReconnecting for Kenley Kissinger and Peter Barnes ended up being hotter than they’d ever expected. A model and a computer geek? Who knew? But now it’s the holidays. Peter’s retirement from the modeling business isn’t quite as settled as he’d planned. He spends more nights away from the man he loves than with him. Will the holidays bring these two together for good or be the faux-snow covered disaster that tears them apart?
Peter isn’t about to give up on his man, but there are others who want to intrude on their relationship. It’s up to Peter and Kenley to decide how happy they want their holiday to be.

About the Author:When she’s not writing the stories in her head, Megan Slayer can be found luxuriating in her hot tub with her three vampire Cabana boys, Javier, Luke and Jeremy. She has the tendency to run a tad too far with her muse, so she has to hide in the head of her alter ego, but the boys don’t seem to mind.

When she’s not obsessing over her whip collection, she can be found picking up her kidlet from school. She enjoys writing in all genres, but writing about men in love suits her fancy best. The cabana boys are willing to serve, unless she needs them. She always needs them. So be nice to Javier or he will bite–on command.

TrustingNatThe key to his humanity is finding his place in the pride.

Sydney came to Sanctuary believing he wasn’t anything other than the runt of the litter. Strengths? According to the others, he had none. But one special shifter seems to think otherwise—Nat. To bring out the brave side if Syd, he’ll need to trust.

Nat has always known he’s a beta. No question. He’s drawn to Syd and wants to find out if their existence at the Sanctuary should be more than platonic. When he and Syd are called upon to bring back more lions from the petting zoo, he not only sees Syd’s true potential, but realizes his true feelings for the fellow shifter.

Can these two shifters forge an alliance and grow together or will their heated experiments between the sheets be the end for them both?

Halloween Blogfest: Megan Slayer

They’ve Got Cat Class and They’ve Got Cat Style
by Megan Slayer

I have a personal affinity for black cats. So much so, I’ve got one of my own. I didn’t name him, but as I get to take care of him, he might as well be mine. He sits with me while I write and keeps me company. He’s loyal and pesty when he wants food in the am. He also reminds me of Halloween and is featured in my writing.

walking cat copy

A while back, Changeling had a call for Halloween themed stories. It’s funny. I happened to be watching him stroll across the floor and wondered what he was thinking. What would it be like if he were a shifter and could talk to me? I’m pretty sure I don’t want to know the answer or what he’d say. But I started thinking about what it would be like if he or a cat like him, was a shifter. The story and a series was born.

My cats in the stories all have somewhat ridiculous names. Why? Because people don’t always have the most sophisticated names for their pets. I know I don’t. But when the cat shifts, in the case of Godzilla on Halloween, his mistress learns his actual name. Someone wants the shifters dead. Can the killer be stopped before Godzilla is stuck as a cat for the rest of his life?

sitting cat copy

Another thing that inspired his story and the stories for the others in his litter was the time of year. Halloween isn’t kind to black cats. The culture has changed a bit, but there are still areas where it’s not safe. I made sure we brought in our black cat before Halloween just in case. I’m glad. He’s the best goofball in the whole world.

In the story, Godzilla isn’t safe. So it’s up to his mistress to make sure no one kills her pet. Will she? Will the killer win? Read Cat Class, a Trick or Treat story, to find out more. And if you’re interested, there will be three more books featuring his litter mates. Stay tuned!

Comment and you’re entered to win a bracelet/earring combo made by the author and also a swag pack (US only)!

Punk Bears You’re probably wondering what the heck punk bears have to do with Christmas. Turns out, they have a lot to do with Christmas.

I’ve always been one of those people who has had to find a way to fit in. I don’t mean changing myself to be what others want, but understanding where I can do the most good.

The same goes for my character in Christmas Glow. Pixie isn’t your average elf. She dances to the beat of a whole punk band. When Santa put her in charge of the Teddy Bear production line, well, she ran in her own direction. Most of the bears are Teddy bears, complete with thick brown fur and shiny black eyes. Then there are her bears. None of her bears are standard. Some have tie-dyed fur. Others have bracelets and earrings. Still others have tattoos.

You might wonder what kid wants a punk bear and who actually asks for these. There are times when Santa wonders the same thing. Then he gets the lists. Yep, those lists have requests for bears that aren’t standard issue. Sally wants a bear to cuddle that’s not average. George wants one to match the tattoo he’s got on his arm. And Michaela? She just wants one that doesn’t look like anyone else’s.

That’s how Pixie thinks, too. She doesn’t get out much, but she’s adventurous. Living in the North Pole is sort of boring. Anything to make life fun, that’s what she wants to do. Oh, and find that one person who gets her. She doesn’t look like a standard elf, either. She wears her makeup a bit too thick and her skirts too short. She’s known to wear knee-high boots to work, too.

And her choice in music? She’s a punk girl all the way. That’s where Glow comes in. One night at a concert changed her life. Now it’s up to her to convince Santa that the one night with Nitro could be the start of something great.

But will Santa agree? You’ll have to read Christmas Glow and find out.

Now with all these posts, there’s a prize involved. Mine, too. What’s up for grabs? For one lucky commenter, there’s a bracelet and earring set. Yep! All you have to do is comment and leave your name and email so I can get in touch with you. It’s easy!

~~~

And now a little more about Christmas Glow.

One concert changed her mind, but can one night truly change her life?

Pixie Elf’s days of designing punk teddy bears just aren’t cutting it. She wants more, including the sexy radio jockey she met at a Glow concert. That is, if he’s up for grabs. Nitro Hicks loves playing the latest rock tunes, but he can’t get a certain elf off his mind. Does he have what it takes to rock her world for the long haul?

Magic happens in the Christmas Glow.

Dressing Up With Megan Slayer
Do you like to role-play? Like to play those games online where you’re a goblin or a warrior? My favorite holiday is Halloween because I can dress up and be whoever I want to. It’s great. No one can say, you can’t look like that or that’s too outrageous. Why? Because everyone is dressed up!

I wrote a story where one of the characters assumes a persona when he’s on stage. He wears garish makeup and spikes his hair. But he’s very tame in real life. (Check out Here Without You to learn more.) I like this character because he gets to play with both sides of his personality. He doesn’t lie about who he is, he just happens to look different sometimes.

I so want to be him. I want to be able to step into a personality and hit the stage. Might help to be a rock star, but everyone has to have a dream. Grin. But since I can’t, I’ll have fun on Halloween!

Who am I going to dress up as? Hmm. Two years ago I rocked the vampire look. DH even told me I had great base makeup. Would’ve been good except the base makeup he referred to was my skin! Oh well. Last year I was a wicked faery with giant blue wings. That was fun until I poked people with the wings. They didn’t appreciate that too much. A few years ago I dressed up as a guy. I drew in a thick handlebar mustache and everything. The only issue there was the eyeliner didn’t wash all the way off and I had to explain the next day why I looked like I needed to shave.

So this year…hmm…I’m not big on things attached to my face, so masks are out. I’ve got devil horns, but those don’t really work because no one would believe I was dressed up. Hey, I rock a mean set of devil horns on an everyday basis. I could be a princess, but that’s another one of those where no one would believe me. Gosh. I don’t know what I’ll be this year.

Anyone got any ideas? I’m open for suggestions. In fact, if you leave a suggestion, along with your name and email, you’re in the hat for a $5 GC to Changeling Press. You just might help me out after all. And in case you’re looking for a good read, here’s a little about my Glow series book, Here Without You, available now from Changeling Press:

Love doesn’t always happen according to plan.

Some guys have all the luck and some guys love the pain. Slash Gunderson knows that feeling well. His place behind the drums for Glow is a dream come true. Can he accept his need for kink and the man who makes his heart beat?

Hiram Moline loves his job as the head of security for Glow. He’s also in love with Slash. There’s one major glitch — someone has been sending Slash threatening letters. Hiram’s not about to let anything happen to Slash. Can he convince Slash they’ve got something strong or will the stalker get the upper hand?

http://changelingpress.com/product.php?&upt=book&ubid=1851 About the Author:

When she’s not writing the stories in her head, Megan Slayer can be found luxuriating in her hot tub with her two vampire Cabana boys, Luke and Jeremy. She has the tendency to run a tad too far with her muse, so she has to hide in the head of her alter ego, but the boys don’t seem to mind.

When she’s not obsessing over her whip collection, she can be found picking up her kidlet from school. She enjoys writing in all genres, but writing about men in love suits her fancy best.

Currently hanging out every Wednesday and Friday at the Menagerie Authors site, hunting Hotties for the Saturday posts, and working on the next great story brewing in her head!

The cabana boys are willing to serve, unless she needs them. She always need them. So be nice to Javier or he will bite–on command.

She also masquerades under the name Wendi Zwaduk and is published through Changeling Press, Liquid Silver Books, and Total-E-Bound Publishing.
