Guest Author & Giveaway: Jessica Clare featuring The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male

Tuesday, October 16

I was out in the rain on Saturday, for much longer than I would have cared to be.  And let me tell you it was a cold rain.  Matter of fact I am still cold....and now I've got a cold :) 

Unfortunately, my situation, nor the outcome, was anything like the heroine, Beth Ann's, in Jessica Clare's latest Bluebonnet series, The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male.  Although if I have to look for a silver lining at least I wasn't wearing Christian Louboutin shoes hiking through the mud for hours....then again at the end she got the hot Alpha hero.

Author Jessica Clare is my guest today to share a bit about The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male, and what you might want to consider carrying with you in case you find yourself stranded in the woods (pouring rain optional).  Enjoy!


Hi there!

My Bluebonnet contemporaries are focused around a Survival Training business and the men that work there. Book two features Colt Waggoner, a hot, hard-headed marine who has the hots for the town’s beautician, Beth Ann. Too bad they can’t stand each other.

Of course, Beth Ann finds herself lost in the woods in the middle of a downpour, and Colt comes to her rescue. Kind of. Beth Ann views herself as an independent woman, so she’s not keen on his help. She’s sure she could find her way out on her own.

And maybe that’s true! But Beth Ann’s problem was that she was out in the woods without any sort of gear. And maybe you’ll find yourself in the same scenario someday – lost and alone in the wilderness. To be ready for this sort of scenario, I’ve made a brief list of things to consider bringing with you.
  1. Protection – Just kidding! But some sort of protection from the elements would be good.
  2. REAL Protection – Condoms – What? They make good canteens for carrying water. Just don’t get the lubricated ones. Yick.
  3. Rope – Good for tying things up. Mind out of the gutter, now. Mind out of the gutter.
  4. A thong – You know. Just in case you forgot your rope.
  5. A sexy hunk of a man with some survival skills. T-shirt optional.  So very, very optional. *fans self*
So that’s it! Now that you’ve got a sexy man and you’re alone together, it’s good that you’re prepared for anything. And I do mean anything!

Beth Ann needed a hero… 

Beth Ann Williamson has finally had it with her on-and-off fiancé of nine years. The problem? No one in town seems to believe her when she says it’s really over. Now Beth Ann is determined to show the small town of Bluebonnet, Texas, that she can take care of herself.  That means opening her own salon and not taking the help that her ex-fiancé seems determined to offer.

Of course, even the best laid plans go awry when she’s stranded in the woods in the middle of a downpour. Some independent woman she is. She can’t even find her way out of the woods without the help of a handsome but scowling Marine.

She got more than she bargained for…

A die-hard survivalist, Colt Waggoner’s none too pleased when he’s sent to find the town’s pampered princess. He’s even more annoyed when Beth Ann isn’t grateful for the rescue. Fine, then. He’ll just have to teach the sexy blonde a lesson – a weekend of roughing it out in the wild. Just the two of them, alone, in muddy, wet clothing that needs to come off…
But Beth Ann isn’t the spoiled princess he thought. And when she propositions him for a one night stand, he knows he should turn it down. Because this alpha male might need more than just one night in her bed to satisfy him…

Thanks Jessica for being my guest today!  I have to admit I am NOT one for camping or for survivalist skills.  My idea of camping is much more along the lines of glamping (glamorous camping).  Never heard of it?  I hadn't until recently, but it's something I could totally be on board with...especially if I had my an Alpha Male like Beth Ann's to join me *big grin*...and the T-shirt would not be optional, LOL!

I have to agree with tissues and a brush. I can't imagine going days without brushing my hair.

CMD October 16, 2012 at 7:24 AM  

Protein bars! Those things can keep you fed & ready for all those energy-consuming wilderness adventures!

Anne October 16, 2012 at 8:23 AM  

A bottle of water.

Kelsey Summer October 16, 2012 at 8:52 AM  

I'd need a toothbrush.

Jyl22075 October 16, 2012 at 9:02 AM  

I agree 100% with toilet paper.

erin October 16, 2012 at 9:25 AM  

I'd say a packet of kleenix (can double as TB), a bottle of hand santizer, a swiss army knife, a compass, and a mini flashlight. Hey I can fit a lot in my purse :)

Carin October 16, 2012 at 11:50 AM  

flush toilets, they come with tp :O)

June M. October 16, 2012 at 2:04 PM  

I would have to go with TP, hand sanitizer, a multipurpose tool like swiss army knife, a mini flashlight that does not require batteries, and a copy of surviving in the wilderness, lol. Hey, my purse is huge! I can carry all the basics plus my kindle & pb book, lol.

Joanne October 16, 2012 at 2:14 PM  

I agree with the toilet paper. Maybe a toothbrush and toothpaste and a Swiss Army knife and a mini flashlight and a bottle of water.

Jane October 16, 2012 at 4:19 PM  

I'm thinking matches or a lighter so that we could build a fire to stay warm or cook.

Alicia October 16, 2012 at 7:56 PM  

Maybe something to start a fire or a folded up blanket :)

Thanks for having the giveaway!

Di October 16, 2012 at 10:53 PM  

Tic-Tacs - gonna want fresh breath.
That still leave room for tissue, a comb, and my handy swiss army pocket knife.

*yadkny* October 17, 2012 at 12:19 AM  

A toothbrush!

Texas Book Lover October 17, 2012 at 11:02 AM  

I'm bringing a water bottle. I always have one with me anyway. I will be able to drink from it, wash off with it, refill it from rain water (if there is any) and stay alive, etc.

This question makes me think of the book On The Island. Water bottle by far the most valuable thing.

books4me October 17, 2012 at 12:47 PM  

Somehow I would have ground coffee! And I would use rainwater and hope my HOT Marine could build a fire and figure out how to drip the coffee into my mouth.Without coffe, NO ONE, even bears, coyotes, etc would RUN scared from me would DARE to be near me...LOL!

Cassandra October 17, 2012 at 10:28 PM  

One of those little survivor kits that we always take camping lol
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

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)
