Coming in One Week! Tara Lain’s New Love in Laguna Novel

#1 - Teaser Graphics - Lord of a Thousand StepsHi and welcome —

I just want to let you know that the cover of my new novel, Lord of a Thousand Steps, will be here August 1st! On that day, you’ll be able to pre-order the book. If you’re a fan of the Love in Laguna Series, i think (hope) you’ll enjoy this one. It’s a favorite of mine. Here’s the blurb for Tara Lain’s New Love in Laguna Novel  —

To architecture student Ian Carney, family means everything. Taken in by his brother, Jim, when his father threw him out at eighteen for being gay, Ian yearns to create his own family with his boyfriend, Rico. But Rico’s in Mexico caring for a sick father, Ian hasn’t had sex in a month and a half, and his gorgeous boss, Braden Lord, CEO of the architectural firm Ian interns for, is looking better and better.

 Braden’s life is chaos. Just out of the closet and going through an ugly divorce from his wife of fifteen years who’s trying to take custody of his two children, he desperately resolves not to succumb to a completely inappropriate attraction to Ian—even though his kids adore both the man and his crazy cat.

 When Rico proves to be a snake in the grass and Ian exercises his powers of seduction, what starts as a “friends with benefits” fling turns into real life real fast. Can Ian give up his romantic dreams for an “old guy” who didn’t come out until he carried a mountain of baggage? It’ll only take a thousand steps.

Remember — Cover Reveal on August 1st and pre-order at that time! Lord of a Thousand Steps.

Top 10 Chick Flicks! Which Ones Did They Miss?

Hi – –

The world is so complicated and devastating right now, it’s good to escape to some romance, so here are the Top 10 Chick Flicks! Which ones do you think they missed? I’m posting the video and then I’ll share a few of the films i think should be on the list.

Do you agree with the Top 10 Chick Flicks! ? I really like most of the films on this list — except maybe Bridget Jones Diary that i can take or leave. I would have put Notting Hill on the main list over Bridget Jones and maybe over Sleepless in Seattle. I would have put Love, Actually and Dirty Dancing higher on the list. Here are some of the chick flicks i think they missed and i’d be sure to include —

A Walk On the Moon — one of the most romantic, sexiest movies ever made, featuring an early, delicious appearance by Viggo Mortensen

Strictly Ballroom — Hilariously funny and intensely romantic, i adore this film. Paso Doble? Hell yes!

4 Weddings and a Funeral — Hugh Grant is the king of chick flicks and this one wins.

Last of the Mohicans — While certainly an action/adventure movie that appeals to guys, Last of the Mos is perhaps more romantic than any other film on the list. I will find you!

I’m sure there are others i missed. What about you? Which chick flicks would you put on this list and which would you leave off?

Thank you for stopping by! : )

Six Ads Based On LIES!

Hi —

You may know that my background is in advertising and public relations, so i’m always interested in  ads i see today. I found this post and thought you’d enjoy it. Six ads based on LIES! I’ve worked a fair amount in medical advertising so i know how stringent it can be. These are consumer products that tried to get away with murder — promotionally speaking! What ads do you hate? Love? I adore the Chrysler ads starring Matthew McConaughey  — especially the ones with the bull and the dogs in the back. Brilliant! I really dislike — the ones below:

Thanks for stopping by! : )

Hi — You know i love my Top 10  Lists and this group is Male Falsettos. Which are your faves? I write a lot of heroes who have higher voices, so i think they might approve of this group.

Thank you for coming by! Hugs.

Supporting Roles Steal the Show!

Canning 28-02Hi — Welcome to Supporting Roles Steal the Show. If you didn’t get here over the weekend to enter Big Backlist Weekend, you still have a few days to possibly win How to Howl at the Moon from Eli Easton or Wolf in Gucci Loafers from me. Enter HERE.

Any author will tell you that supporting characters love to try and run off with your PrinceOfThePlayhousebooks! It’s easier to be a supporting character than a hero or heroine. You don’t have to be noble all the time — or even eventually! You don’t have to be sexy. You can be as quirky as you want to. For example, one of my most popular characters is Lindsey Vanessen, the hero of Wolf in Gucci Loafers, who was introduced as a supporting character in The Pack or the Panther. Readers fell in love with him — and so did I. The same thing was true in Outing the Quarterback. My hero was Will, but his best friend Jamal Jones is so lovable, upstanding and wonderful that people adored him and yelled for him to have a book. Of course, it happened — Canning the Center. The same applies to Ru in Knight of Ocean Avenue who got to star in Prince of the Playhouse.

The same is true in movies! Here is a compilation of the 10 best supporting roles that prove Supporting Roles Steal the Show. See if you agree with the list.

Thank you for visiting!! See you soon. : )

Tucked away in the 13006465_1089255664468227_7407824527138887974_nCalifornia mountains, Mad Creek has secrets to keep, like the fact that half the town consists of ‘quickened’—dogs who have gained the ability to become human. Descended on both sides from border collies, Lance is as alert a guardian as they come. Tim Weston is looking for a safe haven. After learning that his boss patented all of Tim’s work on vegetable hybrids in his own name, Tim quit his old job. A client offers him use of her cabin in Mad Creek, and Tim sees a chance for a new start. But the shy gardener has a way of fumbling and sounding like a liar around strangers, particularly gorgeous alpha men like Sheriff Beaufort. Lance’s hackles are definitely raised by the lanky young stranger. He’s concerned about marijuana growers moving into Mad Creek, and he’s not satisfied with the boy’s story. Lance decides a bit of undercover work is called for. When Tim hits a beautiful black collie with his car and adopts the dog, its love at first sight for both Tim and Lance’s inner dog. Pretending to be a pet is about to get Sheriff Beaufort in very hot water.

WolfinGucciLoafersLGWolf in Gucci Loafers by Tara Lain

Socialite Lindsey Vanessen wants someone to love who will love him back—an impossibility for a gay, half-human, half-werewolf. Too aggressive for humans, too gay for wolves, and needing to protect the pack from human discovery, Lindsey tries to content himself with life as a successful businessman. But when someone starts kidnapping members of wealthy families, Lindsey meets tough cop Seth Zakowsy—the hunky embodiment of everything Lindsey wants but can’t have.

Seth has never been attracted to flamboyant men. What would the guys in the department think of Lindsey? But intrigue turns to lust when he discovers Lindsey’s biting, snarling passion more than matches his dominant side. It might mean a chance at love for a cop in black leather and a wolf in Gucci loafers.

What is your 10 book list? I think i might include Harry Potter but you can pretty much keep Moby Dick and Wuthering Heights!  I’d probably put Pride and Prejudice above To Kill a Mockingbird, but they’d both be there. LOL  : ) Be sure to enter to WIN the audiobook of my novel, Driven Snow. You have 3 days. Click DrivenSnow-400x600HERE!
