Five Fun Facts - Alannah Lynne


5 fun facts about me:

1. My favorite sitcom is Two and Half Men and I live in awe of the writers.

2. I'm addicted to DEA shows on SPIKE TV and NASCAR

3. I'm a weather fanatic and love hurricane season. Although I don't like it when hurricanes actually make landfall.

4. I despise wearing panty hose and make-up - although occassionally I'll make an effort with the make-up, I refuse to make the effort with pantyhose.

5. If it doesn't go in the washer or dishwasher, I probably don't own it.


Blurb: Kat Owens can't believe her luck. Her new job was supposed to be a fresh start - one that would lead to a position she's coveted for years. Instead, it reunites her with the man she's spent the past thirteen months trying to forget.

Only a fool would let Kat slip away. That was Erik Monteague's realization upon waking - alone - after an impassioned night with Kat. But Fate has brought her back into his life, and he'll stop at nothing to rekindle their smoldering attraction.

Neither is prepared for the emotional fallout that follows when they act upon their explosive passion. Erik's feelings for Kat force him to confront the painful past that has haunted him for ten years. Kat much choose between a promotion and love, while knowing love might not be enough to save Erik.

Short Excerpt:
Erik was standing in the middle of the room next to the bed. He’d stripped off his shirt, his hands were tucked into his front pockets, and he wore a dark and dangerous expression. “Come here.”
A shiver raced down her spine as nervous anticipation sliced through her. She’d seen desire in a man’s eyes before, but the fire in his transcended simple lust. And heaven help her, she was damn near desperate to experience everything he had to offer. She pulled the door shut and moved across the room toward him. The closer she got, the more she trembled and the harder her heart pounded.
His pupils were dilated, and in the dim lighting his eyes looked like luminous sapphires. A streak of lightning flashed and reflected off the dark orbs, so full of their own flashing energy. The house shook from the force of a thunderous boom. She jumped and ceased her forward motion.
She dropped her gaze to his bare shoulders and chest, where the muscles bunched and flexed with his apparent impatience. Her eyes raked across his well-defined abs and down the thin trail of dark hair disappearing into the waistband of his pants. At the thought of tasting him, she licked her lips.
His resolve must have snapped, because he closed the distance between them in one stride. He slid one hand through her hair, wrapping it tightly around his fist, while the other slipped around her waist. His mouth crushed hers and his tongue pushed past her lips, demanding complete and uninhibited access. His tongue swept the inside of her mouth with a seemingly insatiable hunger while his hand dropped from her waist to her ass and hauled her body up tightly against his.
She threw her arms around his neck and pulled him to her with a desperation she’d never before felt.

Hi Alannah!! I loved your new release "Savin' Me" from The Wild Rose Press!!!

#1, me too. Brilliant! #2, have yet to see either. I can guess why you like the DEA (hehe), not so sure about the cars going round and round and round and... #3, while I enjoy a good storm, a hurricane is a bit much for me. #4 me too! #5 ROFL!!!

Paula R said...

Hey Alannah, loved your responses...Never really watched #1, love me DEA, FBI, CIA, USA, CG...gimme anyone of them...LOL!!!

I am kinda fascinated by the science of hurricanes, having lived through one...not very fond of the landfall either.

I ditched the pantyhose as soon as I could, and I don't really do make up. I think I might have forgotten how to apply it...yep, that's how long it has been. #5 LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!

I won't be around a lot today, but I will check back in as soon as I get home. Have a blast here. I have heard some good things about Emmalai.

Peace and love,
Paula R.

Hi Alannah!

My hubby and I do like "Two and a Half Men", but at the moment we're hooked on "The Office". Although, the older episodes are way funnier than the new ones.

And I agree, panty hose are awful. I never wear them!

Alannah Lynne said...

Lu - You really, really need to watch those DEA guys. mmm..mmm..mmm... As for the cars going round and round, I think that's just my redneck showing. LOL I have no other defense!

Hey Paula! If you ever stumble across 2 1/2 Men, you should watch it just once. I really think you'd like it. I have never been able to sit through one without laughing - a few times! Even when I try NOT to!

Hi Debra! My youngest son loves The Office, but I haven't been able to get into it. I have a friend that loves it though! She said my son can come over to her house anytime and watch it with her. LOL

The best use I've found for pantyhose - slipping a pair over my skimmer thing, and using them to scoop the algae out of my fish pond. hehe

Thanks, all, for dropping by and visiting with me!!

Hugs,
Alannah

Howdy Lu, Paula and Debra! Thanks for dropping by!

Thanks for sharing the fun facts about yourself, Alannah! I find hurricanes fascinating, but I also don't like when they make landfall.

Liza said...

Hey Alannah! Two and a Half Men is funny, but I'm totally hooked on The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon always makes me laugh.

I couldn't tell you the last time I wore pantyhose and I can promise I don't really plan on doing it anytime soon. As for make-up, unless chapstick is concidered make-up, I haven't put in one in a couple of years.

I totally agree with your #5.

Paula R said...

Hi back Emma Lai! Thanks for having Alannah here today. It is fun to follow her around.

Alannah, I will check it out, if I come across it. I can't wait to read Savin' Me. I am still looking for Reaction Time.

Peace and love,
Paula R.

Alannah Lynne said...

Thanks for having me here today, Emma, this has been fun!

Liza, LOL, I don't think chaptstick counts. I think you're safe. And I've never watched the Bing Bang Theory. Gosh, I probably shouldn't seek out another show to get hooked on.

Thanks for dropping back by Paula! Have a great night!!

Kaye Manro said...

Hello Alannah! Great sounding book, great cover!

Alannah Lynne said...

Hi Kaye!! Isn't that cover awesome? Rae Monet did it (I asked for her becuase she also did my website) and I was so pleased. The cover model is Jimmy Thomas and well...you just can't go wrong there. LOL

I'm waiting for my son to finish scoring the music for the book trailer for this, and I used a couple of Jimmy's photos in the trailer, as well. He's a carbon copy of how I'd pictured Erik!

Thanks for the kind words!!
