Monday's Muse

Monday, February 1

Sorry, but the image containing the Monday's Muse has been removed from this blog so as not to violate any copyright issues.  Thanks for your understanding!

This weeks muse is very least to me.  When Lauren Dane first previewed the cover for her next book in the Federation series, INSATIABLE, I was awe struck!  Seriously, I just sat and stared at it, probably with my mouth agape...drooling.  Then I found the original photo that was used to create the stunning cover art.  It doesn't get much more perfect than that.  Here they are side by side.  Aren't they breathtaking?

Right then I knew it was going to be one of my favorite covers of the year.  But I always wondered what the original picture looked like.  And last week while I was reading some blogs online I just stumbled across this picture and was like....OMG that's Mr. Insatiable!  He was just sitting there waiting for me to discover him.  It was meant to be!  Call it what you will, destiny, fate, kismet, all I know is that I am positive that there was some kind of divine intervention involved.  How else can you explain finding the one picture that you had been thinking about searching for, but decided that it would be worse than trying to find a needle in a haystack...then just accidentally finding it, out of the bazillions of images on the internet?  Naturally I couldn't wait to share him with you, so enjoy Mr. Insatiable....I know I will visit him often to chase away my winter time blues :)

Another way to chase away the winter time blues is to read a great romance book.  Wouldn't you agree?  So make sure you join me here this week when the following authors will be my guests:
  • 2/2 (Tuesday)  Beth Kery will be here to celebrate the release of RELEASE
  • 2/3 (Wednesday) Jill Shalvis will be my guest to celebrate her new book SLOW HEAT
  • 2/4 (Thursday)  Mary Wine will be here to talk about her new historical romance IN THE WARRIOR'S BED
  • 2/5 (Friday)  Alexandra Hawkins, a debut author, will be my guest to present the first book in her brand new Lords of Vice series, ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE
Hopefully later today I will have a TON of winners for you.
Happy Monday!

Yes, I have him at my place too!! He was a present from a friend!!! And a very good present. I can stare at him all day long. Never did I know though that he was the cover man for that book. I even had the book up before I got him, lol! He is all sorts of yuummy!

I so looked forward to Mondays now. By the cover alone, this book would be SOLD!

BTW, your line-up for the week is great.

oh, That was an excellent birthday gift Cecile! While the pose is similar I can see how you would not have realized he was the cover model for this book

I'm glad you like the line-up. Some of my fav authors to read, plus a new one :)

My monday's are always better because of the Muse!

He is absolutely gorgeous!

Lauren Dane February 1, 2010 at 8:09 PM  

Isn't he absolutely beautiful? I want to write him to thank him for making my book so much more attractive to pick up and fondle!

Armenia February 3, 2010 at 12:41 PM  

He is beautiful. First time I saw him on Lauren's book I thought his belly button had jewelry on it. He's got such an amazing bod.

Oh yeah, Lauren, I'll be fondling him, er, I mean, your book on its release day.

Thanks, Carrie for finding the total man and now we have the handsome face to match the rest of him.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
