Monday's Muse

Monday, October 11

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 had a hard time picking a Muse this week...after all there's sooo many inspiring Muse's to choose from :)  Usually I like to pick a Muse that looks like a hero from the book that I've either just read, or am reading.  I'm currently reading Seven Nights to Forever by Evangeline Collins (which I am loving), and for me the book evokes more of a mood, than an image of the hero. So I wanted a Muse that was sumptuous, masculine, and yet a little bit vulnerable too because the hero is an honorable man who needs some love in his life and a soft place to land...which of course he finds in the arms of his heroine :) *Sigh* I'm only about half way through the book and can't wait to finish reading it.

This week on Seductive Musings I may not be around as much as I'd like to be.  I've got family visiting for the next two weeks (yes TWO whole weeks) so I will have less spare time than I usually do (which is the only time I can blog). However, I will most definitely be here on Tuesday and Wednesday because....
  • Tuesday author Shana Galen will be here to celebrate her newest historical romance, The Making of a Gentleman.  I really enjoyed the first book in this series, The Making of a Duchess.
  • Wednesday debut author Tiffany Clare will be my guest to celebrate her new historical romance The Surrender of a Lady which has been receiving some great reviews.
  • The rest of the week is going to be kind of up in the air, depending on the amount of free time that I get :)
Some other interesting updates (at least to me):
  • I'm up to $50 in Swagbucks Amazon gift certificates!  Woo hoo!  I've decided that since the Kindles WiFi is only $139.00 I am going to save up my gift certificates I've earned from my searches and finally buy one. I'm so excited about this especially since the Kindle will in essence be FREE just from doing internet searches, polls, and surveys at Swagbucks.  If you are not using Swagbucks then I ask....why not?  Granted it's going to take me a little bit longer to earn the remaining points to get the rest of the Amazon gift certificates that I need, but maybe I will get lucky and Amazon will lower the price again for the holidays (crossing fingers).  And what is just as great is that once I get the Kindle I can then buy ebooks using Amazon gift cards that I've also won from Swagbucks! Doin' the happy dance!
  • There's a new Tempting Trailer this week.... A Storm of Pleasure by Terri Brisbin.  This book came out last week or so and is the second book in her Storm Trilogy.  Historical romance, Scotland and a little bit of the paranormal :)
  • Don't forget to Click on the Pink ribbon(below) to donate a mammogram to a woman in need :)

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)
