Lucky in Love Blog Hop: How do you make your own luck?

Lucky in LoveWelcome Hoppers to Carrie  Ann’s Luck in Love Blog Hop.   Join almost 300 bloggers celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and the ephemeral concept of luck.

As usual, I’m going to do this blog hop my own way.  I don’t really believe in luck–not completely. Luck seems to show up most often when people are working hard to achieve a goal, making new friends, doing new things–finding ways implicit and explicit–to trip over that door that just had not yet been in their vision.  Luck often seems to be an unseen opportunity or barrier revealed when someone marches forward with steel determination, kindness in their heart, a sense of purpose and a little Karma thrown in for good measure.

Yes, things like lotteries work on luck, but you have to be a ticket to have access to it. So even that requires an action first, before the luck comes.   Still not convinced?  Let’s see if I can prove it with the prize I’m giving away.

I have a fabulous group of writer buddies. We help each other grow as writers.  All have published or about to publish wonderful books and stories. Like me, on the newer end, most of us having our first books within the last year.  One person who comments on the question “How do you make your own luck,” chosen by random.org will win one book written by one of these authors, that I will buy.  Which author will be chosen by random.org.  Here’s the amazing group in alphabetical order by last name:

Tonya Cannariato

Sarah Cass

Fiona Druce

Ellie Heller

Jennifer James

Milly Taiden

Mary Terrani

Luck, through random number generation will decide which new author you get to read. But they are all out there working hard to write great stories and spreading the word about them. I’m just a door that opened to help them out and you get a free book.  Pretty good deal–Good Luck.

ENJOY.

Fires of Justice Book Blurb

Always read the fine print when swearing an eternal oath to gods and guardians…

Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.

Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.

Heartbreakers of the Furry Kind: The #Hearthop (#Shifters are included)

Heartbreaker Blog HopWelcome Hoppers to Carrie  Ann’s Holiday Heartbreaker Blog Hop.   Join over 300 bloggers celebrating Valentine’s day and the joy of love.

I am going to do this a little differently and focus on heart breakers of the furry kind–animals and you got it, shifters (people who become animals).

I want to share my two favorites.  The first is my furry baby, who is beyond adorable, and a world champion nuisance. Aww. Look at him wrapped up like a pink package (my daughter’s handiwork).

Cat in the Bag

The second heart breaker is Cullen McMahan, fire shifter, hero of my paranormal novella Fires of Justice and all around heart breaker.  I thought I’d share an excerpt of him with his own heart in a twist.  I find pain in a sexy dude downright irresistible.  In the snippet below, Cullen and Calista, who are not exactly on speaking terms at the moment, are required to work together to complete a mission and find themselves sharing a room at an inn.

They made fast work of dinner. Both taking refuge in the window view, they scarfed the food down, polished off the white wine and exchanged very few words.

After surviving the meal, Calista planted herself in the shower, leaving when she started to shiver from water that had long since turned cold. Dressed in a plain red t-shirt, she dried her hair, and exhausted, headed to bed.

Cullen had cleaned up the dinner dishes and sat in the brocade chair, a glass of amber liquid in his hand, and stared out the window. Dark circles ringed those pain-filled, too-old eyes, his body rigidly alert. Pain sliced through her heart, stabbing it into shreds. Before she could think better of it, she found herself kneading his shoulders to release the grief tensing his muscles into iron-hard knots.

He glanced up, questioning, but his body leaned into the massage like a flower to the sun. Watching those chocolate-brown eyes and hard planes of his face soften under her ministrations melted her like butter.

Got a furry critter or sexy shifter who’s broken your heart?  Or in the case of my big boy, the stove, drinking glasses, plates, bowls and I could go on.  Let me know and leave your email addy. For one commenter, I will adopt an endangered species in your name from the World Wildlife Fund. You get to pick which one and receive the $25.00 adoption packet.
