I’ve had a busy week moonlighting on the other two blogs I’m involved with, Lust Bites and The Spiced Tea Party which are both going very well and coping with the kids and a sick dog while Mr Kate completes his world tour of Asia. So this blog is full of snippets of interest! More from me next week when things settle down!

first up promo for a fellow author-how can anyone resist a book with the word chocolate in the title?

Book Description

Romance has never been as temptingly sweet as it is in this trio of erotic treats from an author who knows how to seduce…and deliver.

In Gimme Some Sugar…
Jackson never realized how much he loved his best friend Alexis—until her wedding day was on the horizon. Now all he has to do is convince her that their harmless kissing games over the years weren’t so harmless after all. In fact, they may end up breaking his heart.

In 4 U Sweetheart…
Toni never imagined that a night of speed-dating could lead to something serious. But three minutes with the hunk of her dreams changed that. Especially after he slipped her a candy heart that said “Pick Me”…

In Dipped in Chocolate…
Nathan wants a special delicacy for his sister’s bridal shower. He finds it in Jayla, the owner of a decadent chocolate shop. As hot as she is, Jayla’s not looking for a fling. As hot as he’s getting, Nathan may have to abandon his bachelor ways for a piece of chocolate that’s a little more solid.

4 Stars “Luke cuts right to the chase in these three spicy novellas with interconnected stories. A common thread is the intense passion each couple inspires. If you like quick, hot and sexy reads, you’ll definitely enjoy this anthology.” Leigh Rowlings, Romantic Times Book Reviews

NEXT BIT IS FROM MR KATE…surprise surprise

Words Women Use: A Refresher Course for men

1.) FINE: This is the word women use to end an
argument when they are right and you need to shut

2.) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this
means a half an hour. Five Minutes is only five
minutes if you have just been given five more
minutes to watch the game before helping around the

3.) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm.
This means something, and you should be on your
toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end
in fine.

4.) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission.
Don’t Do It!

5.) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a
non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A
loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and
wonders why she is wasting her time standing here
and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to
#3 for the meaning of nothing.)

6.) That’s Okay: This is one of the most dangerous
statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay
means she wants to think long and hard before
deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7.) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not
question, or Faint. Just say you’re welcome.

8.) Wha tever: Is a women’s way of saying F@!K

9.) Don’t worry about it, I got it: Another
dangerous statement, meaning this is something that
a woman has told a man to do several times, but is
now doing it herself. This will later result in a
man asking “what’s wrong”, for the woman’s response
refer to # 3.
