Monday's Muse: It's Royal Romances Week...

Monday, April 25

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!

We are celebrating Royal Romances this week at Seductive Musings as a way to celebrate the Royal Wedding later this week...and when I think about weddings I think about the cake..but since this is Monday in our case it would be beefcake :)  But I'm sure you could probably care less what I have to say at this point because you are more than likely still gazing up above.  I'll just hang around for a few until you've looked your fill....

As I was saying :)  This week I have a few things planned that take their inspiration from Royal Romances.  I am so excited about Will & Kate's wedding on Friday!  I have to admit that I remember getting up really early when Diana and Charles got married to watch it on TV and wanted so bad to be her at that moment.  It was like a fairy tale come true.  Now that I'm an adult, I can only say that I am SO glad that I'm not Kate.  I wish them well, but I would absolutely hate to be publicly scrutinized for the rest of my life...but I wouldn't mind a little piece of the cake above :)

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  Author Mia Marlowe will be visiting to celebrate the release of her Brava historical romance, Touch of a Thief & a reader's poll to select your favorite Royal bouquet
  • Wednesday:  A selection of a few of my favorite Royal Romances featuring Princes & commoners, as well as winners from previous giveaways, & a reader's poll to select your favorite Royal wedding dress
  • Thursday:  Author Lila DiPasqua will be visiting and sharing a very special sneak peek excerpt from her upcoming Fiery Fairy Tale historical romance releasing later this summer, A Midnight Dance;  Lila's interpretation on the ultimate Royal Fairy Tale, Cinderella, as well as a reader poll to select your favorite Royal Slipper.
  • Friday:  Friday Fun with some of the Royal memorabilia, videos, and other things that I found humorous that surrounds Will & Kate's special date & I'll have the results from all of the reader polls to let you know what you selected throughout the week.
  • Tempting Trailer:  The new Tempting Trailer of the week is for "Will & Kate's Big Fat Gypsy Wedding".  It's a hoot, you should check it out for a laugh :)
Also of Interest:
  • Seductive Musings isn't the only place celebrating the Royal Wedding this week.  Casablanca's British Babes Book Brigade Facebook page is giving away books every day this week, as well as three Royal Wedding Prize packs on Friday.  You can check it out here.

Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors will new releases this week, especially Musings authors Lori Foster, Cherry Adair, Kieran Kramer, Donna Grant, Kris Kennedy, Sarah MacLean, Margaret Mallory, Elizabeth Amber and Katie Lane!  There's a lot of great books to check out this week.

Have a Happy Monday and I hope you will join us this week.  For those of you who shared some Muses last week, big thanks!  I'll be sure to put them to good use :)

I find this pic very distracting. I keep staring trying to figure out exactly how much I'm looking at also that shadow may be making me see things.

I had to come back for a second leer........

Your new release widget just kills my budget! I think the best covers this week are Cherry Adair's HUSH and Lori Foster's WHEN YOU DARE.

I'll be here. Looks like a fun week!

I hope it's distracting in only the best of ways :) I know I had a hard time keeping my eyes of him when I found him last week...which is why he happened to be our Muse this week :) Considering our theme this week he's our diamond in the buff...almost :)

Hey Artemis,

There were a HUGE number of new releases this week. Lori Foster's new series is on that I've been looking forward to and I LOVE the cover too!

I've had my eye on several of the historicals and would also like to check out Shiloh Walker's ebook with Samhain. I tried out a few of her self published ebooks and didn't like them as much as her books with NY pubs and her Samhain releases, but I usually love her books so much that I think I'm going to have to break down and buy it...especially since they are the discount is so much higher when you buy them during the first few days.

You should know, that I am good at spending other people's money. If I could make a career of it I would. My sister has a love/hate thing when we go shopping together because she always buys more than she expects to (funnily though she rarely returns any of the things she buys when we are together, unlike the rest of her purchases).

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)
