Monday's Muse

Monday, August 23

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!

I needed a pick me up in a big way today.  I had a great Saturday and a bad Sunday....I don't want to talk about it :(  So to make me feel better I decided our Muse this week was going to be someone who we've all been drooling over ever since we first saw his cover.  Do you recognize him...if not let me give you a little hint...
Ladies (and a few gents), I give you the original for Jaci Burton's The Perfect Play.  I think he is a perfect combination of our last two muses and then some. That picture is, I mean is anyone that delicious for real? *Sigh*  Is it a wonder that football is my favorite professional sport (followed closely by rugby). I know it's a long time until we can get our hands on him, but he gives me all sorts of happy hormones.  I think I might be feeling better already :)

What else do I have for you this week?  Let's see....
  • I updated the Tempting Trailer and it now features Kresley Cole's new paranormal romance that is out this week, Demon From the Dark.  I need to do some catch up because now I'm two books behind in this series.
  • And, the first "Collective Review" is also posted today.  Since I didn't receive any nominations I thought I would select an author that is on my read list for this year.  I would love to know what you thought of Nothing Denied by Jess Michaels, so if you've read it or read a helpful review I hope you will make a comment on the post (not this one) and/or leave a link so that we can all share the love together.
  • My guests this week will be Lila DiPasqua, Monica Burns, Teresa Medeiros and Paula Quinn all with some great giveaways! So I hope you'll join me to celebrate their new releases, and more as we come to the last full week of August. (already?)

Oh my, that muse definitely earned the right to be on a book cover!

Sorry to hear that you had a crappy day. But thanks for this amazing image. The cover of "The Perfect Play" is just amazing and I can never get enough of it.

To be honest I think football is boring (love rugby) but maybe if the players would get rid of their shirts I would be more interested :)

Hey Cecile,
Can I tell you how impressed I am that you know our Muse's first name....but then again I shouldn't be surprised being the hussy you are :) As for my bad day, new day new perspective...I'm releasing it to the universe.

Hi Sabrina!
I'm with you on the cover, and I like how you without shirts would definitely make it better!!!

Cecile August 23, 2010 at 9:10 AM

I can't get enough of Jaci's cover. That has to be the best man-titty cover in all of man-titty covers ever.


Armenia August 24, 2010 at 11:01 AM  

Oh, Carrie, he is absolutely perfect! I, too, am impressed that Cecile knows his name. But she is a resourceful hussy. hehehe Love ya, Cecile.

I hope you have a better week. For me, I'm just happy the sweaty little kids are back to school. Whew, what a Summer.

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)
