Treat yourself this month!

What's an average day like for you? Chances are you wake early every morning, hustle your family out of bed, fix breakfast, see that the children get washed and dressed, look for lost library books, find matching socks, and get everyone out the door in time for school and work. Then you may need to get yourself to work and you already feel as though you've put in a full day!

Or maybe like me, you're helping to care for an elderly parent. If you were to knock at my door on a given morning, you'd likely still find me in PJs, hurrying to feed the cats, walk the dogs and get Mom ready for her Senior Day Program. We all have busy lives. We care for our family members because we love them. But let's remember to love ourselves, too!

January is "Love Yourself Month." It's often hard, between work and family obligations to find time for ourselves. And sometimes when we do find a bit of time, we feel guilty. But how can we take care of others if we don't take care of ourselves?

Try to do something special for yourself today, even if it's something small. Treat yourself. One of my favorite treats is losing myself in a good book. Preferably a romance! That's why I'm giving away a free copy of my first book "One Good Man" (an erotic romance) to a random commenter.

What's your favorite way to treat yourself? Please leave a comment and share! Thanks!

"One Good Man":

Just one touch...that’s all Andie Benedetto wants when she glimpses her father’s sexy neighbor. Images of deep, long kisses and down and dirty sex heat up her fantasies. When he catches her watching him, she’s embarrassed but undeniably turned on.

Just one weekend...that’s all Matthew Vostek can offer Andie. He recognizes her shyness, but also senses her desire, the same desire he feels. Maybe they can fulfill each other’s hottest fantasies.

Just an adventure...that’s what Andie tells herself. Tired of playing the good girl, she’s ready to accept Matthew’s challenge and enjoy the most exciting sexual escapade of her life. But when the weekend is over, will Andie finally take what she wants instead of settling for second best?

A Cat's Tale by Melissa Snark

A Cat's Tale
by Melissa Snark

Alpha werewolf, Jared Kohl, wakes up in a vampire’s dungeon, swearing revenge upon the wily Siamese werecat who lured him there with her sultry lips and the sweetest tail. To escape his undead captor, all he has to do is seduce the skittish puss and show her that trust is often a hot and hard lesson to learn.

Enslaved feline shifter, Josephine Young, has learned the hard way not to believe in anything or anyone—not men, not love, and certainly not the blood-sucking mistress who tossed her into the cage with the hungry beast she’d betrayed. But Josephine does what she must to survive, including tempting the dominant werewolf to give her more than promises.

Imprisoned for their blood, Jared and Josephine fight for survival and discover a passion that neither can walk away from. Can these two predators survive long enough to prove that cats and dogs can be more than enemies?

New Year, New Possibilities

Last year saw the publication of 

Twice is Not Enough
After several disastrous engagements, Lady Minerva Peters is an expert at suppressing her own needs. Only in the darkness of night does she give in to her wanton desires with a fantasy lover. 

In the middle of a crowded ballroom, she learns her father is not yet ready to let her fade into spinsterhood. Humiliated, she ducks into a dark alcove only to find out she's not alone. Her hiding spot is occupied by a captivating stranger. Before she can escape, the two become voyeurs to another couple’s sexual rendezvous. The atmosphere heats up and so does her body, especially with the tempting offers whispered in her ear. 

Will Minerva deny her needs once again or will she embrace the anonymity of their seclusion and finally explore her basic impulses and the startling attraction to the compelling mystery man?

and Riding Rodeo.
The last person Amanda Goodson expected to walk into her bakery was Sean Cassidy, the bareback bronc rider who rode her hard one night and left without a good-bye the next day. Since then, she'd sworn off one-night stands and cowboys, but one look at the man she called Rodeo leaves her hankering for another ride. 

A nasty injury ended Sean's career and left him with nothing but time to contemplate past sins, especially the most damning one...walking out on Amanda, the one woman he couldn't forget. Eager to right the biggest mistake of his life, he finds Amanda--and learns he has competition. Never one to back down from a challenge, he offers to fulfill her darkest fantasy--taking two cowboys for a ride. 

When the dust settles, will Sean's plan to win Amanda's trust backfire or will she risk her heart for one more shot at Riding Rodeo?

I'm pleased to announce I'm nearing completion of a sequel to Twice. (It should be ready for submission by the end of the month.) So, stay-tuned for news. You can also check my blog at for updates on this and other titles in progress.
