Monday, February 21
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!
You know, sometimes the only reason why I look forward to Monday's are because we get to have a new Muse. That's not really the case today because I have this Monday off due to President's day. Woo hoo! So I thought we deserved an extra special Muse...cowboy style. Now I know you may think, cowboy? Where did she get that...because honestly it's hard to look away from the upper half of his body....and that look....holy cow that's hot! But if you take a look south of the border you'll notice he's putting on cowboy boots. See, cowboy :) I heard Big & Rich's song "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" over the weekend and just had to smile, because that is something that I can definitely get on board about :)
I've been reading a lot of historical romances lately, but March 1st is right around the corner. It is the release day I am most looking forward to for the entire year and it has a lot of contemporary romances. Have you seen how many great romances are being released on this one day? It is going to be BIG! And one of the books releasing next Tuesday that I've been eagerly awaiting is Lorelei James' Saddled and Spurred, so naturally I've got cowboys on the brain. I so can't wait!!! It's one of the romances I bought on my awesome bargain book buying spree a couple of Sundays ago and can't wait to get it in the mail. A trade sized paperback new release for less than a mass market paperback book...LOVE THAT! I wish publishers would do this more often. Normally I think time flees too quickly, but March 1st can't come soon enough for me.
In the meantime, this week at Seductive Musings:
- Monday: The fabulous Marie Force will be my guest to talk about everyday heroes in celebration of her new contemporary romance Everyone Loves a Hero...
- Tuesday: I will have winners from last week's giveaways and possibly the last Outlander giveaway winner to announce. Yep, I've almost given away all 20 copies that I had. But don't worry I'll have some ARC's to giveaway after that as I try to clear out some of my bookshelves.
- There is a new Tempting Trailer, and this week it's for one of my favorite anthology series from Lori Foster. For several years she and a group of authors each donate a short story for an anthology and all of the proceeds from the sale of the book goes to a charity. I love this idea! This year the title is The Promise of Love and some of the contributing authors are Lori Foster, Erin McCarthy, Sylvia Day, Kathy Love, Kate Douglas and more. It doesn't come out until June 1st, but it's something that I can't wait to read.
So let me ask you this: Do you prefer to have the "New Temptations" in the Monday post for what is being released that week, or do you prefer to have the entire month's worth of new releases in the sidebar on the blog? Do you even care about this feature? If you could have one, or none what would you prefer? I'd love to have your input.
