Guest Author & Giveaway: Cassandra Carr featuring Head Games

Wednesday, December 28

After all of the holiday hoopla I could use a little pampering...ok, really it's more than just a little necessary at this point.  I need a vacation, which sadly, isn't going to happen.

One thing that got me through all of the craziness was lists.  I'm a list maker.  I find them incredibly helpful, and it's not even to have the satisfaction of crossing things off, it's so that I don't forget something important.

Erotic Romance Author Cassandra Carr is my guest today with a list of her's one kind of list that I've never made :)  Cassandra and her heroine Kathy, from Head Games, discuss the pros and cons of having a menage relationship.  Read and enjoy!

My heroine makes a pro/con list with a little help from me

Me: Kelly, I believe you're contemplating a life-changing decision. Can you tell us about it?

Kelly: Yes! These two hot guys I know have proposed that they share me. Can you believe it?!?

Me: Share?

Kelly: Yeah, like both be with me in a relationship.

Me: Ohh, kinky!

Kelly: *blushes* Yeah. But if you could see these guys...

Me: Oh, I've seen them. I created them.

Kelly: This is true!

Me: You know what always helps me make decisions like this? A pro/con list!

Kelly: *tilts her head* That might actually work!

Me: *getting out paper and a pen* Let's try it! Now, what would you say one "pro" to being with these guys is?

Kelly: Well, one that's obvious...they're both smokin' hot.

Me: I agree! *writes down 'smokin' hot bods'*

Kelly: And a con would be that if the public finds out I'm with both of those smokin' hot bods my reputation could be dragged through the mud.

Me: *nodding severely* Yes, that's possible. *writes down 'mud'*

Kelly: Another pro - they really focus on me. I feel like they really listen to me and care about the things I care about.

Me: Good point. *writes down 'listens/cares'*

Kelly: A con - they're out of town a lot to play games.

Me: Hmmm. *writes down 'possible strip club attendance'*

Kelly: Hey! I didn't say they might go to strip clubs.

Me: No, but I know hockey players, honey.

Kelly: But you created them! They aren't the types to do that!

Me: You've got me there. *erases*

Kelly: Another pro - they're totally supportive of the restaurant and of me having a career.

Me: Always a good thing. *writes down 'she can still work'*

Kelly: Oh, another pro - it seems silly but it's a big deal to me. Both of them are taller than me.

Me: All right. *writes down 'tallness means large'* Ow!

Kelly: That's not what I meant!

Me: Ah, but again you forget. I created them. I know how big they are.

Kelly: *blushes again* Fine, leave it there.

Me: Hey, it's a plus in my book!

Kelly: *snickers*

Me: So far the pro's are outweighing the con's.

Kelly: Then should I do it?

Me: If I two gorgeous, rich, attentive guys who wanted ME between them I'd do it in a heartbeat!

Kelly: *giggles* I gotta go.

And there you have it! See how the logic of a pro/con list can work?

Leo Laporte and Scott Schaeffer are teammates on the ice and roommates off it who also share women. They’ve been coming into Kelly Chase’s bistro after games for months, and they know they want her. As the attraction grows, the men realize they want more than a one-night stand - they want forever.

Kelly’s not so sure. Yes, she wants both men. But a permanent ménage relationship? That’s taking giving her heart away to a whole new level, and a chance she’s hesitant to take. Then Leo is injured and Scott’s on the trading block, and she realizes this may be her only shot at true, everlasting love.

There are so many questions swirling around inside Kelly’s head. Can she believe in Leo and Scott’s love? And will her business and her reputation survive once people find out she’s with two men?

Read an excerpt, & below is a special except for Musings readers:
“Okay, so let’s go over everything again – make sure we’re on the same page here,” Leo urged.

“All right. Can’t hurt. We need to present a united front if we’re gonna do this.”
“Exactly. So both of us want her.” They’d been attracted to Kelly since the moment they’d laid eyes on her, but had come to the realization a few months ago that their feelings ran deeper than simple lust.

Scott nodded; his eyes as determined and focused as Leo had ever seen them. “Yes, we both want her, and the only way that will work is if we share her. But we need to make it clear at some point, maybe not right up front, that we want her more than just sex.”

“And we think tonight is the night?”

“She’s definitely intrigued.” Scott paused and Leo could practically see the wheels turning in his friend’s head. “Even when we mentioned a threesome last week she didn’t run.”

“Yeah, and did you see the expression on her face? She wants it.”

“I think so, too. But don’t forget. We can’t push her too hard. And everything one of us does affects the other. We can’t let her tear us apart and if this thing starts to do that we need to reconsider.”

“Agreed,” Leo answered. He held up his fist. “Even now, even with Kelly, bros over hos, man.” The two men did a quick fist bump and Leo relaxed a little.

A few minutes later Kelly backed out of the kitchen, her arms laden with plates, and both men paused to admire her in her tight chef’s pants. She caught them staring and just shook her head, laughing.

Yes, they were done waiting for her to come around. It was time to put Operation Seduction into action.

I seem to write a list for everything, then never use it!But, one thing I have never done is write a pro and con list. Thinking about it now, I can see how it might be a good idea!

marybelle December 28, 2011 at 2:08 AM  

A pro/con list is not such a bad idea. I never have. I think I should have though.


Goddess Fish Promotions December 28, 2011 at 7:13 AM  

Thank you for hosting Cassandra today!

Anne December 28, 2011 at 8:24 AM  

I did ,make a pro/con list the last time I moved. Since I'm still in the same apt. 5 years later, it probably helped, but it couldn't account for a HUGE ($100) rent increase the second year, followed by a $70 increase the following year.

I thnk a list can put things in perspective provided you try equally hard to find both the pros and the cons.

Karen H in NC December 28, 2011 at 8:30 AM  

I'm a list maker too but mainly things to do, things to pack for trips, etc. I can't say that I've made a life changing decision based on a list.

BTW Cassandra, love these character interviews. They are so 'telling'. When you develop your characters, do you ever use a picture of a person, famous or not, to help visualize your character's physical features?

Tore December 28, 2011 at 9:07 AM  

I have never wrote a pro or con list. Maybe I should do that more often before making decisions. Please enter me in contest.

Tamsyn December 28, 2011 at 9:34 AM  

Mine is usually a To Do list, just to make sure I didn't forget anything important! I should try a pro or con list. Thanks for the giveaway.

Cassandra Carr December 28, 2011 at 10:17 AM  

Hi everybody! Thanks for coming by today!

Karen- I don't usually use pics of famous people because then I think I'd want to assign personality attributes to them based on what I know about the famous person's personality. Sometimes I do use random photos I found online.

For Leo and Scott, I knew I wanted them to look different so they were easier to tell apart even if I wasn't using their names. Given that it made sense to make Leo taller with dark hair and eyes and Scott stockier with blue eyes and blond hair. In Cold As Ice, book 2 in this series, there are THREE guys! Luc is 6'4" and lean, Carter is 6'0" with rangy musculature, and Jake is 5'10" with a muscular build.

Thanks for asking such a great question!

Kathleen O December 28, 2011 at 11:47 AM  

The only kind of list I do are "TO DO" list.. I am not much of a pro/con list kind of person...I think about it and maybe talk it out with friends and family...Well of course depending on the situation...If I had Kelly's dilema, I might just talk it over with my BFF's...
Looking forward to reading this book.

Artemis December 28, 2011 at 1:23 PM  

I'm a constant list maker and would never get anything done without one, but never an actual pro/con list. Although, I have made a generalization list that has helped me make decisions in the past. I guess you could call that pro/con. It works well for me.

Loved this interview. I like the spin put on the pros and cons. Sweet!

And, um, HEAD GAMES looks mighty sweet too!

Cassandra Carr December 28, 2011 at 2:08 PM  

Kathleen and Artemis - thanks for the comments! I had fun doing this with Kelly. She's got quite a dilemma, huh? ;-)

redjuliet December 28, 2011 at 2:48 PM  

I have not used a pro/con list to make an important decision. I think it's a good idea though! Looking forward to the next book in this series. I love hockey players! Thanks for the giveaway!

Cassandra Carr December 28, 2011 at 4:41 PM  

redjuliet - Have you read Head Games? :-)

Chelsea B.,  December 28, 2011 at 8:06 PM  

I'm all about the lists ;-)


booklover0226 December 29, 2011 at 8:45 AM  

I used a pro/con list when deciding to either buy a home or rent. I ended up buying and I'm glad I did.

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)
