Guest Post from Jeanine McAdam + GIVEAWAY!!!

Lovelies, you all know how much I love cowboys right? I mean, what's sexier than a cowboy? There are plenty of men that are as sexy, but none sexier ;) Well, today I have Jeanine McAdam on the blog and she's here to talk about Bull Riding! Yep, she writes cowboys. Who's drooling at the thought? ;)

Bull Riding – A Dangerous Sport

Bull Riding has been called “the most dangerous eight seconds in sports.” Logan Cooper the hero of my latest contemporary romance THE BULL RIDER AND THE BARE BOYCOTTER knows that well. He’s handsome, tough and he gets hurt a lot.

While researching bull riding and working to define Logan’s character I kept coming across articles with titles like “Is Bull Riding More Dangerous than____” fill in the blank. It could be hockey, football or boxing.

Bull riders break bones, suffer concussions and dislocate all sorts of body parts. However, if bull riders don’t ride, they don’t make money. The adage among cowboys is “It’s not if you get hurt but when…” Riders compete with arms in casts, knees dislocated and head injuries.

Fifty percent of all rodeo accidents happen during the bull riding competition. However bull riding generates the most excitement, has the most fans and makes the most money. What keeps the cowboy’s coming back to bull riding? The adrenaline rush, the lifestyle and obviously the money, plus there are lots of girls.

When my hero Logan meets Rachel Fox, an animal’s rights protester, he’s nursing a recently dislocated shoulder. He puts that pain aside for eight seconds to ride a bull named Punisher. Then Rachel runs naked into his ring ruining the ride but starting something else between these two strong-willed opposites.

“Would you please stop gawking at me and give me a blanket to cover myself with?” Rachel Fox demanded, cupping her breasts in both hands and shifting on her heels. With a crossed leg she tried to hide her exposed bottom half and almost fell face first into the sod-covered floor.

Good God, why did she let Erin talk her into this?

Honestly, Rachel was more than willing to do anything to save Punisher and the other bulls from the abuse they suffered at the hands of cowboys like the man standing before her. But God help her, she was still shaking from the reaction of that angry mob. And Logan Cooper had no right spanking her. Now, he was denying her clothes. 


Animal right activist Rachel Fox is a woman with a mission. The plan is to step into bull rider Logan Cooper’s ring wearing nothing but a poster calling the rodeo a ‘blood sport’. While rescuing this passionate protester from a nineteen hundred pound charging bull Logan decides he likes what he sees. Only problem, he’s got to direct Rachel’s love away from the livestock and onto him. With the press hot on their heels, because who isn’t interested in a story about a bull rider and a naked protester, Logan brings the dark haired, curvy figured Brooklynite to his Montana ranch.

Except, now that he’s got Rachel in his bed he’s nervous his annoying, problematic brothers and surly preteen nephew will scare her off. But when Rachel meets Logan’s deeply flawed family she realizes the bulls aren’t the only ones who need saving, the Cooper brothers need her help too. The only problem is Rachel has a secret, after believing she was infertile, it turns out that this sexy bull rider may have changed her childless fate forever.

Interview with Charlie Daye!!

Hello lovelies! Who's ready for another exciting author interview? Today, the fantabulous Charlie Daye joins The Lindsay Show!! Everyone grab your coffee or tea and please help me welcome Charlie.

Thank you so much for stopping by, Charlie! When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I actually started writing when I was 13 and it just kind of took off from there. 

Oh that's awesome to start at that age. When I was 13, I was still swearing I hated to write lol. If only I could go back in time and tell teenage me that I'd be an author 14 years later ;) What has been the most difficult part about being a writer?

Writers block... it's a pesky thing that seems to coincide with the disappearance of my muse Simone. She can be temperamental, that one. 

Ugh, I hate writers block. Luckily I've got a fantastic muse and some wonderful betas to help me with that :) Do you use a pen name? If so, how did you come up with your pen name?

Yes, Charlie Daye is a pen name. It's a combination of my real name and a family name. 

Very clever! Who are your favorite authors?

I Love Dean Koontz. I have read almost everything he has ever written. Other honorable mentions would be Kim Harrison, Lisa Jackson and Laurell K. Hamilton. 

Those are wonderful authors. I've never read much Dean Koontz, but what I've read is phenomenal. What type of books do you like to read?

I am a total fiction girl. I love paranormals, heart pounding suspense, thrillers, romance - although I do tend to steer clear of contemporary romance novels. 

I am very much the same way! What do you like to do in your free time?

Read, my TBR pile is way to long. I also love a really great action movie.

I'm pretty sure all of us could be crushed by the size of our TBR piles lol. Where is your favorite place to vacation?


*Gasp* A fellow Disney lover!!! Sorry, I always get excited to meet a fellow Disney lover :) If you were stuck on a desert island and could have only three things, what would they be?

My Kindle, my Ipod and Dominic Purcell! ha ha. 

LOL!! I love your priorities :) Who needs food or water when you've got those things? ;) Are you a plotter or a pantser with your writing?

I would like to say I'm a plotter but if truth be told I really do write by the seat of my pants. I may start out wanting to go in one direction but once I start writing my books have been known to take on a life of their own. Most of the time I have to look back at what I wrote and ask myself, "What the heck just happened here?" because it's not what I had planned. 

Absolutely nothing wrong with being a pantser. Fighting your story is a sure way to get yourself in trouble. Why did you choose to write a paranormal romance?

I'm a sucker for a good romance especially when it has a happy ending. I also have an obsession for the supernatural. So, it just made sense to put the two together. 

That is eerily similar to my logic behind writing paranormal romance :D What has been the most fun about working on your books?

Ooh.... that' an excellent question. It's a mixture of a few things. I love working on the covers. I also love the rush I get when my readers post on my author page asking me when the next book in a particular series will be released. It gives me such a rush!!

I couldn't agree more! That has to be one of the best feelings ever. What has been the hardest scene for you to write? 

In the Reservation (book 3 in my Curse Breaker's Trilogy) there was a gang rape scene. It's only like 5 pages long but it took me almost 2 weeks to write those 5 pages and there wasn't that much detail in them either. 

Oh wow, I can certainly understand how that would take you a long time to write. That must've been so difficult! Do you have any favorite characters? If so, why?

Markus, from Gypsy's Dance. He's the oldest of the Raydon Brothers and for some reason he seems to be the epitome of sexiness. I've found that he also seems to be a favorite among some of my female readers. Those some will admit that they'd be more than happy to take any of the Raydon boys home. 

Ooo, I'm intrigued now. Any time someone is described as "the epitome of sexiness," I must read more lol. How did you come up with the premise for Breeders?

The idea for Breeders came to me after talking to my BFF and a crazy thing that happened to her during a weekend trip to Vegas. I couldn't help but put her story to paper. Now granted, she was REALLY pissed off at me when she found out but once we got to talking about the story line she couldn't wait to read it. 

Ok, anything that happens in Vegas has GOT to be great inspiration! Tell us about the world/setting in Breeders. How did you come up with it and is any of it based on personal experiences?

The book itself takes place in several locations. It starts in Vegas, then moves to Huntington Beach, CA before winding up in The Colony - which is a fictional California location. Is it based on personal experience? Absolutely. Just not mine. 

That's awesome, I can't wait to dive into it! Tell us more about your main characters please.

My heroine's name is Sicily Chase. She's a 27 year old, plus size,  kindergarten teacher with an amazing personality and slight flare for the dramatic.

My hero's name is Auzi Reed. He's a Breeder who could sway you to his desires with a simple touch of his hand. He's more about protecting rather than manipulating and his father is head of their colony. 

My not so nice guy is Ripon Breed. He's also a Breeder whose special gifts fall under the sexual touch catagory. He's arrogant, self centered  and just an all around ass.

Can I just say I love your characters' names and they sound so interesting! Is there anything else you’d like to mention about Breeders?

You will meet a slew of interesting characters in this book. Some you'll love, some you'll hate. At times you'll find yourself really upset, perhaps a little turned on and by the end of the book you'll be cheering for the good guys. Breeders is a romance from start to finish. It's about instant connections and life long friends.

That sounds like the mark of a truly great book <3 Is this part of a series? If so, what can we expect with the other books?

I haven't decided if it's going to be part of a series yet or not. If you really love the book this could be really disappointing, I know. There are so many wonderful characters who deserve their own stories. The problem is I just haven't had any ideas come to mind yet - you just never know. 

Well, I know how it is to be at the mercy of your muse. Hopefully the ideas start flowing! What's next for you? 

I am currently in the process of writing a series of books about warrior women whose sole purpose is to hunt down the men that break women's hearts. We'll call them love's avenging angels. The stories are a little darker than what I normally write and I'm not sure how much romance if any will actually be involved but so far the initial reviews are very good. 

I'm loving that premise and cannot wait to hear more!! Anything else you want your readers to know?

I'm currently running a contest on my FB page for my readers. I'm looking for interesting stories to use as inspiration for an upcoming novel based on my readers' life experiences. If there is story is chosen it will be featured as the premise for an upcoming book and the winner will receive a signed copy of said book as a thank you! So, if anyone has a story to share they should stop by my author page and share it with me!

Lovelies, definitely check out that contest! Charlie, thank you so much for stopping by! It has been a pleasure getting to know you better :)

Breeders...Buy it Now!

My name is Sicily Chase. All I wanted was one last, fun filled girls's weekend in Vegas before summer break was over. I wanted to hang out by the pool, do some shopping, hit the clubs, meet a hot guy - you know let loose. Well, I did all that and then some but little did I know my one night stand would turn into so much more not to mention introduce me into a supernatural world I never knew existed.

Interview and Review with A.D. Trosper!!

Hello my lovelies!! It's time to sit down with the fantabulously awesome A.D. Trosper! I had the pleasure of interviewing her as well as reading her book, Embers of Galdrilene, and may I say it's fantastic? I mean, seriously, you must read it :) But, we'll get to that in a bit. Who's ready for an interview!!

Thank you so much for joining me, A.D.! When did you know you wanted to be a writer? 

I wanted to be writer for a long time before I ever actually embarked on the journey.

That's wonderful <3 What has been the most difficult part about being a writer? 

Time. With three children, dairy goats (twice a day milking), chickens, and vegetable gardens, time is always a problem. Hmmm, and the evil Facebook that is always trying to suck my day away.

I can completely relate to a lack of time, not to mention the time sink that is Facebook lol. Do you use a pen name? If so, how did you come up with your pen name? 

Nope, I use my real name.

Nothing wrong with that :) Who are your favorite authors? 

That is a long list but I will try to name a few. In particular order: Robert Jordan, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, R.A. Salvatore, Clive Cussler, Mary Stanton, Christine Feehan, Katie Jennings, and a whole host of indie authors. I have come to greatly love reading indie authors.

Those are all fantabulous authors. Anne McCaffrey and Christine Feehan are particular favorites of mine :) What authors inspire you? 

Many of my favorites.

That's the same with me. What type of books do you like to read? 

As you can see from my favorites list, I have a very eclectic taste in books. So the books I like to read are the ones that interest me at that moment. Beyond that, I like books that take time to develop.

I love how eclectic your taste is. What do you like to do in your free time? 

Spend time with my family, spend time with my animals, read, watch Vampire Diaries, Gray’s Anatomy, Dexter, Homeland, and Deadliest Catch.

Ahh, of my favorite shows :) Where is your favorite place to vacation? 

I have dairy goats that have to be milked twice a day. I don’t vacation. :)

Hey, who knows? Maybe you could pile them into a truck and take them with you ;) If you were stuck on a desert island and could have only three things, what would they be? 

My family, a stock pile of food and water, and my Kindle.

That sounds perfect! Are you a plotter or a pantser with your writing? 

Pantser. If I plan too much, I lose my muse. Like me, she prefers barely controlled chaos to perfect order. We get along well.

Your muse sounds very similar to mine :D Why did you choose to write an epic fantasy?

I didn’t. It chose me. Characters show up in my head with their backstories and usually their names already known to them. I write what they tell me to write.

Don't you just love how that happens that way? What has been the most fun about working on your books? 

Editing. I know, I’m a total freak but I love revisions and edits.

*Long pause* I'm sorry, did you just say editing? LOL! Sorry, totally cannot relate hahaha. What has been the hardest scene for you to write?

None of them. As long as I listen to my characters, things flow pretty smoothly.

You are so so lucky! Do you have any favorite characters? If so, why? 

I love them all. Trying to choose a favorite would be like trying to choose a favorite among my children.

I can understand that :) How did you come up with the premise for your book? 

Again, I didn’t come up with it, it came to me.

We are running a bit low on time, but is there anything else you’d like to mention about your book? 

It survived the Writing Apocalypse and also won readers choice best in fantasy in the Turning the Pages book awards. It also won an IBD award.

That's fantastic! Congratulations :) Is this part of a series? If so, what can we expect with the other books? 

Yes, it is part of the series. The second book will be out this summer.

I cannot wait! What's next for you? 

After the Dragon’s Call series is finished (there will be a third book), I have a few characters in my head that live in the urban fantasy world, so I will start writing them.

Well, after reading this book, I cannot wait to see what else you right! Thank you so much for joining me, A.D.!! Anything else you want your readers to know before you go? 

I appreciate each and every one of them.

Lovelies, keep reading for my review of Embers of Galdrilene!

About the book:
Publisher: Silver Spring Publishing
Publication Date: May 4, 2012
My source for the book: Purchased
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Length: 496 pages

Embers of Galdrilene...Buy it Now!

“A ray of light, a stain of shadow, shall endure to breathe life and death into the future”

The war between the Guardians and the Shadow Riders ended in total devastation. The final battle killed all the dragons and left nothing but fields of ash. A small clutch of dragon eggs was all that remained to provide hope for the future.

Five hundred years later, the ability to use magic is a death sentence and dragons are remembered as a curse. But the unhatched dragons sing for their riders...and soon six lives will be changed forever.

The elements of magic are drawn together as the dragons’ call leads them on an epic and dangerous journey of discovery. They soon learn everything they've been taught to believe about magic and dragons is wrong.

With the last of the dragons and the world at stake, they will risk everything to heed the call.

But an evil from the past soon threatens their discovery and new found joy. Shadow Dragons ride the dawn once more...


This is an epic fantasy, which I adore. Who doesn't love dragons in their books? A.D. wrote a very rich world. All too often with an epic fantasy, there can be a ramp up period where things are slow as the author sets up the world building and characters. This book dove straight into the action. The characters were compelling, there was plenty of new vocabulary and phrases introduced to help solidify that this is a fantasy world (LOVED dragon-blasted!), and it was so easy to immerse myself in this story. Though it's a long book, I found myself compelled to keep reading as fast as I could to find out what would happen next.


I loved how immersive and detailed this world was, but at times it could get a little bit overwhelming. I feel like a compendium guide would be a fantastic thing to help keep everything straight.

OVERALL VERDICT: 5/5 Blue Duckies!!

If you're looking for a fantabulously immersive epic fantasy with wonderful characters, a fantastic setting, and its own set of vocabulary and phrases, you must read this book!

Meet A.D. Trosper!

Born in Kansas, I spent a lot of my childhood moving around. I've lived in Kansas, Oklahoma, Washington State (around Seattle), and southern California. I had many great adventures growing up. I'm now settled down in Kansas with my wonderful husband, three children, my wonderful dog Katie, assorted cats, and small flock of chickens.

I've been an avid lover of fantasy since I was young child. Dragons, elves, fairies, dwarves, and other denizens of the fantasy world as well as magic have always fascinated me. As I grew up, I developed an interest in vampires, zombies and my interests branched out to take in paranormal and urban fantasy.

I don't have any special writing credits to my name other than a wildly active imagination and the ability to form that imagination into written stories.

Blog tour stop for Caroline Levy!!

Lovelies, my dear friend Caroline just released her very first novel, Welcome to the Family!! Please join me in congratulating her!!! She crashed my blog today for a guest post so read on to find out more about her!

Hi Lindsay, firstly many thanks for having me on your blog. *waves* hello to all your lovely followers.
This is an exciting time for me. The release of Welcome to the Family is quite a big deal. It’s my first book to be published to its all extra shiny and exciting. Although to be honest I think I will be getting excited with every book I publish J
I have been pondering on what to do this blog post about as you have been kind enough to leave it as a guest post, so I have free reign to run amuck all over your blog lol... I jest
I have decided to make this post about one of the characters from the book as, I don’t know about you but I often wonder about the little things that you don’t always get to know via the book. Like does Megan actually eat junk food & does she really follow the no fraternising with your protector rule?
All about....
Mina Azariel Aka: Megan Ardent

Age well you never ask a Vampire their age especially a female one. *whispers* ‘about 150 years old’
Megan was born in a time when women didn’t run the show, well not officially anyway. She comes from one of the main five vampire family’s. The family crest is of two lions fighting.
Megan is the main receptionist on Topline Towers, to the outside world that is. In the Vampire world she is the top negotiator for Topline. There are many factions and family’s that do not get along and Megan has a gift for  getting two parties to agree terms on usually business deals.
Megan also has a passion for fashion, she owns her own boutiques in all the major cities of the world.  Mina’s is very high end, only the elite get in.
Fredo is her protector, she never goes anywhere without him. ‘I can honestly see why’

Frederic Henry Aka Fredo

Fredo is a Were-Panther, sexy as hell and he knows it. Quite the ladies man, but totally devoted to Megan. He hates that Megan pines after Jack, as he knows it will never happen.
Megan has had a crush on Jack for over fifty years but Jack won’t even entertain another Vampire. He sticks to wooing the human ladies.
Her favourite colour is, yes you guessed it red J
Megan has told me she does eat junk food, her favourite, is dark chocolate. Melted onto a man’s body is a bonus.
Megan loves to read, one of the books she is reading at the moment is Frost burned.
Megan’s favourite flower is a red rose & she loves to tango.
The one thing Megan is sure of is that she is going to be really good friends with Angel. So watch this space as she will be showing up in Protecting the family J

Many thanks for letting me share a little more about the lovely Megan.

Cover Reveal for Dying to Return by Trish M Dawson!!!

The 3rd installment of The Station Series has a cover and it is beautimus!

Thanks must be given to the designer, Deb Rogers, for her time and talent - thank you, friend!!!
So...feel free to sit back and stare for a bit...I am. :D
Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]   Dying to Return is the 3rd book in the Young Adult Fantasy The Station Series. Piper Willow's adventure in the afterlife continues as she struggles to discover who she is and what is expected of her. Faced with decisions that could change everything, she must weigh her desire to be with the ones she has come to love, or satisfy her curiosity and find out what lies beyond her world with someone new. What Piper experiences and the choices she makes could not only alter the delicate inner workings of the Station, but the delicate balance that Piper has managed to maintain inside herself. In the end, will it all be worth it?   Excerpt from the book:
A heaviness settles over the table and Andella is no longer giggling. "Why did you do it, Piper Willow?"
"Andella!" her father hisses. He seems embarrassed for her, but she holds my stare across the wide table. I see nothing sinister, just simple curiosity in her eyes.
I reach for my blue-tinted glass and sip at the water. Gulping down air, I try on my best smile and elbow Rush slightly when I feel his gentle prodding at the locked gates my mind.
"I can't answer that. I mean…" I pause, allowing myself to reflect, "I guess I do know why. But I don't know why I thought killing myself was the only option." With a shrug, I sip more water.
Andella reclines slightly in her chair and nods. "Unlike my brother," she shoots Rush a warm smile, "I have not traveled to your world, but I have seen into it. There is much sadness there. Such a loss of potential. I think you are different though. I think on some level, you must have known there was something else beyond your life. Did you not?"
I twirl the fabric napkin on my lap while considering the question carefully. "I think I just wanted that life to be over." I feel the tears building up in my eyes as my voice drops to just above a whisper, "Some people call it Heaven, a better place after life. I didn't care about Heaven or Hell, I just wanted out."
A large hand reaches toward me and I look up through my blurred vision to find Andulen's hand atop mine. Rush is also touching me, and though she's clear across the table, I feel Andella's calming presence as well.
"Child. You cannot fit your life into a square coffer. It will find a way to spill out over the sides and explore that which surrounds it. Even once that coffer is lidded, your life doesn't cease to exist - you carry on. That is what you have done, Piper Willow. That is why you sit here with us this evening, eating and drinking and breathing. Your life - it will always struggle to stay outside that coffer. Do you understand this?"
I nod at Andulen and smile as he squeezes my hand before releasing it. My voice wouldn't work even if I had words appropriate to use, so I sip from my tinted glass again.
"Now. I have serious matters to discuss about this Earth of yours. The first thing, a question I have had on my mind since my Son here breached the subject to me." He pauses with his face set into a hard expression and I gulp. "Can you explain to me what Rugby is?"
