Monday's Muse

Monday, October 10

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!

First let me thank everyone who took the time to leave a comment on my "Likes & Dislikes " post.  I enjoyed reading all of your thoughts.  There were two common themes.  Don't mess with the Muse :) and you all like diversity in your Romance reading.   Not to worry, my friends, Monday's Muse is going to continue to greet you on Monday.  I need it as a pick me up just as much as you do!

This week's Muse was chosen because there is a book that comes out somewhat soon that I can't wait to read...matter of fact I'm craving it like you wouldn't believe :)  Any guesses?  And while we're at it do you think jeans that zip, or button fly are I don't really care...especially when the top button is already undone :)

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  Historical Romance author Eileen Dreyer will be my guest to celebrate the release of Always a Temptress...I'm hoping to get a few pointers from the heroine :)
  • Wednesday-Friday:  I'd like to say I will have some reviews for you, but the way my life has been going recently I'm not even going to attempt to make any promises.  I can only hope and dream that maybe after this week thing's might have some semblance of normality.
  • Tempting Trailer:  This week's tempting trailer is for Bertrice Small's new Highland Historical Romance, Bonds of Passion.  Several of Ms. Small's older romances are on my keeper shelves, and while I haven't enjoyed some of her newer ones as much, I just can't seem to stop myself from picking up her new releases each time they come out :)  Since this is set in the Scottish Highlands during the time period that I love, of course I'm very eager to read it!  And while the music in the video is catchy...doesn't seem to go with the mood of the book. Hmm.

Also of Interest:
  • Are you a history lover like myself?  If so you might enjoy author Gillian Bagwell's blog. All this month she is sharing her research adventures of her new historical fiction novel, The September Queen (gorgeous cover!).  She's exploring the daily events during the six weeks King Charles II was on the run...trying to escape from England after the Battle of Worchester (September 3, 1651).  This obviously ties in to the book, which is the story about Jane Lane & how she saved the King.  Way to go Jane!

Apparently last week was book release feast, whereas this week it is famine :)  Maybe that's a good thing considering how expensive your book orders may have been at the beginning of the month.  Nevertheless, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors with new releases this week, especially Musings author Helen Scott Taylor!

That is a fine Muse! He is giving me many interesting ideas!

Mmmmm.... Delicious.

Hey, I thought muses were suppose to help you to be inspired? He inspires me, but none of it is for talking... LOL. Great pick!

I look forward to whatever you have planned this week; believe me, I can releate with the whole no promises on reviews. Mine have been kind of...randomly posted lately. Oops. :)

Ah heck, I didn't even think of the Monday Muse. I knew you wouldn't mess with a good thing. Zippers!!!! No buttons - who wants to mess with buttons when it's time to get down to business!

Good thing the pickings are slim this week! My budget is slim too!

Is that Anton Antipov? Yum-my!

I rather thought he was inspiring too :)

I guess he has universal appeal. I can see him as a cowboy (contemporary or historical) or even a shifter because of his stance. He could inspire so MANY great stories!

Have you ever heard of delayed gratification...LOL. Yeah, who want's that! I think jeans the way they are with both ONE button and the rest zipper is the best of both worlds. You get the pop and the zip :) And I am so hearing you about the slim in NO extra $.

You AMAZE me every week. I had to go back to the original file, and yes it does reference his name on it. How in the world did you know that? I should make you an honorary...something as it relates to SM Muses :) Glad you enjoyed it!

Mmm. So glad I checked in early. The Monday Muse is quite a nice way to begin the week. Thank you. And I'm sure Kate would love to give you pointers tomorrow. ;0}

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)
