India-Jean stops by...

Today I have India-Jean Louwe talking about her brand new release, Tangles and Temptation as well as share with us a recipe that I cannot wait to try!




4 Laughing eyes
4 Well-shaped legs
4 Loving arms
2 Firm milk containers
2 Nuts
1 soft, warm mixing bowl
1 Firm banana


1. Look into laughing eyes.
2. Spread well-shaped legs with loving arms.
3. Squeeze and massage milk containers very gently.
4. Gently add firm banana to mixing bowl, working in and out until well
creamed. For best results. Continue to knead milk containers.
5. As heat rises, plunge banana deep into mixing bowl and cover with nuts,
leave to soak (preferably NOT overnight).
6. The cake is done when banana is soft. If banana does not soften, repeat
steps 3-5 or change mixing bowls.


1. If you are in an unfamiliar kitchen, wash utensils carefully
after use.
2. Do not lick mixing bowl after use.
3. If cake rises, leave town !!!

Here's my naughty tip:
For best results use extra large, very hard bananas and leave overnight after licking everything from ingredients to utensils. But that's just my point of view :)

What a fantastic recipe, India-Jean! I can't wait to give it a go! Tell us about your new book. What prompted you to write it?

Tangles & Temptation
[Gladiators - House of Andromeda]
Word Count: 87,115
[Ménage and More: Erotic Historical Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M with F/F elements, shape-shifters, HEA for M/F]

This title is offered at a 15% discount. Offer ends midnight CST, May 29th.

I am an avid lover of Greek Mythology, specifically around 500BC and the tale of Andromeda fascinated me from the moment I read about her. The fiction begins with her unorthodox forming of her personal army, her gladiators. And that in turn brought about the burning question. Ever wonder what type of a woman it would take to bring a battle-thirsty,seasoned gladiator with a core of steel and body to match to his knees? I do. And these witty, spunky and very outspoken women make their appearance in the series Gladiators - House of Andromeda.

The first book - Tangles and Temptation is a fiery mix of a mere woman, Kyra, who pits herself against the might of the Erpo-the snake gladiator, Eris, and his twin brother Skorpio-the scorpion gladiator, Sappho. And as you can guess Kyra can not afford to be the least bit skirmish about creepy-crawlies. But this is where their conflict begins. Poor Kyra, who can handle two gladiators at the same time, both in and out of bed, is petrified of the beastly snake that is a part of Eris. Eris, on the other hand, must fight an immortal enemy Cronus, compete with his brother for full claim on his mate and at the same time actually win that mate over. Seems difficult? Fortunately, as I mentioned in the beginning, it takes a certain type of women to fulfill the space beside these heroic men. And Kyra is not a woman who sits back dwiddling her thumbs, while she waits for a man to the dirty work.

Your book definitely sounds exciting. Any chance you would be willing to tease us with a steamy excerpt?

Absolutely! Here's a short XXX Excerpt:

From Eris’s first thrust in her stretched snatch, Kyra screamed her delight. She was filled, complete. She was stretched, torn. They moved in her as one, thrusting together, retreating together. Kyra soared as her body lay imprisoned, sandwiched between two hard bodies. Their muscles clenched and corded against her softness. Having no vision, her other senses flared. They were glorious bodies of merciless steel, lusty, prodding cocks and groping hands and feasting mouths. Their lips, tongues, and teeth teased at her back and laved at her breasts. Their harsh, ragged breaths fanned against her heated flesh. Her legs entwined around the hips of the lance pounding from the front, opening her fully to accept the assault from behind. Reality was lost as their bodies strained and meshed against hers. Their open, wet kisses and their thrusts became faster and more desperate, losing all rhythm and finesse. It became a race toward an end each felt a selfish, ravenous craving for deep in their souls.

Wow...Umm...I think the readers will need a cold shower after that! It's a good thing that you're giving away one free eBook copy of this book, because I know everyone is going to be chomping at the bit to get their hands on one.


India-Jean thanks so much for stopping by! Please tell everyone where else they can find you on the web.

4 days – 4 books in honor of Lt. Michael Murphy, fallen USN SEAL

On June 28, 2005 our nation suffered a great loss, as Operation Red Wing took 11 Navy SEALs and 8 Army Night Stalkers from us.  Many of you may have heard of the one remaining survivor and US Navy SEAL, Marcus Luttrell who penned the book Lone Survivor giving his account of what he and his team went through during the ordeal, however just recently more people have become aware of Lt. Michael Murphy who led the SEAL team that day in an effort to  kill or capture Ahmad Shah, a Taliban leader.  Lt. Murphy, known by some as "Murph" is being remembered in a book by Gary Williams, SEAL of Honor and more recently was honored by having the newest Naval Destroyer, USS Michael Murphy DDG 112 named after him.  Lt. Murphy was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life and above and beyond the call of duty.  While the memory of Lt. Murphy will live on in his family, friends and team members, he serves as a reminder to many of us that our U.S. Military puts their country before self and are willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms and liberties.

With that being said, there is an annual fundraiser known as Memorial Day Murph and this year marks the 2nd annual event. The workout which is dubbed "Murph" was originally called  "Body Armor" and was said to be Lt. Murphy's favorite workout.  The workout consists of (in this order): 1 mile Run, 100 Pull-ups, 200 Push-ups, 300 Squats, and lastly 1 mile Run with body armor.  There are four organizations which will benefit from this fundraiser.  They are:

Now, to my purpose behind this entry...For those of you who know my writing, you are aware that I have written four books about Navy SEALs, which I refer to as my Sweet Awakenings Series. And for those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook you also known that I am a proud military supporter and feel strongly about supporting our troops and veterans in any way that we can.

I will have the transactions monitored by a 3rd party so we can all be assured that the funds are being handled appropriately.  Please see special instructions below for paperback purchases.
  • On paperback purchases I will need you to email me a copy of your receipts to: as those do not update in real time and I may not get those sales numbers for as much as 30 days.
