Blog Tour + #Giveaway: Excerpt from NICE GIRLS DON'T RIDE by Roni Loren

This will be our first time to participate in this and we're hoping that we can get things scheduled beforehand. Reviews, original content, blog tours, etc. Thanks to the lovely Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup for setting this all up. Here's what it's all about...

Blog Ahead is back! This time for a mini 2 week version to help get everyone ready for Summer vacation! Getting ahead with blog posts is something I think is so important. It can really lighten the stress of blogging and is great for allowing down days if you just can't get by the blog but still want things to go live


To create a 2 week blogging buffer by increasing your total number of scheduled blog posts by 14.

If you start the challenge with 20 scheduled posts...
you finish the challenge with 34 scheduled posts.


Any posts that are completely finished and ready to go live.

This can be weekly memes like Waiting on Wednesday, Cat Thursday, book/product reviews, author guest posts, discussion topics, etc.

They don't have to be book related.


Anyone! Really. New to blogging or seasoned bloggers.

It's fine if books aren't your main theme.

It's even okay if you don't think you can hit 14 extra scheduled posts in 2 weeks.
Even if you only get 1-2 extra posts scheduled that's still a great thing, right?


There's also a FB group for support during the challenge if you'd like to join :)

Nice Girls Don't Ride

Natalie Bourne thinks she has the perfect night planned for her twenty-first birthday. But when her car breaks down and her boyfriend bails on her, she’s left stranded in an auto shop dealing with a way too cocky, way too hot mechanic, who seems to be intent on pushing every button she has.

Monroe Hawkins knows he shouldn’t be messing with a girl from the uppity private college. Especially when he can tell she sees him as the help. But he’s having trouble resisting the redhead with the smart mouth and the killer legs. So when Natalie’s night goes from bad to worse, there’s no way he’s letting her spend her birthday alone. He makes her a deal—he’ll take her home but not until the sun comes up.

Ten hours, one motorcycle, and the city of Austin at their fingertips…things are about to take a major detour. And soon, there may be no U-turn in sight.

This novella was included in the Riding Desire Boxed Set, which is no longer available.

Spotlight, Quiz + #Giveaway: THE MONTGOMERY BROTHERS Series by Samantha Chase

New York Times and USA Today bestselling romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
