Thrilling Thursday

Good morning LIT readers! Allow me to apologize on behalf of Lord Craven-Moore who was supposed to get his well formed tush over here last night to announce the winner of Evangeline's contest. Instead, Kristina, Amanda and I found him lounging in Gideon's study, drunker than a skunk on Gideon's excellent port. And might I just add that Gideon was in no better shape! Grrrr, it's a good thing that man is reliable in other areas! *g*

Alas, I have dragged myself out of bed to see to the duty. Kristina and Amanda are still draped over his lordship, but I console myself with the knowledge that come the end of June, when Kristina and Amanda are feverishly writing, and I am done my deadlines, that I will be the one draped all over Craven-Moore!

So, we've got a few things for you today. First is the winner of Evangeline Collins' excellent debut Her Ladyship's Companion. So, the winner was picked randomly, and random in the Featherstone MayFair Mansion consists of writing out the names on a piece of paper, folding it and dumping it into a Dale Earnhardt Jr baseball cap. Then, the official name picker in the form of my 10 yr old daughter comes along and squeals and feel she's very important, then draws the name. It's not but it usually works.

So, last night, kidlet drew the name......


Congrats!!!! Please email me at with your snail mail addy and I will forward it along to Evangeline! Thanks to everyone who entered and stick around the blog because in the coming days and weeks we've got more book giveaways!

In other freebie news, my friend, and awesome writer, Karin Tabke has a free download read at Simon and Schuster. It's a medieval short. I'm a HUGE fangirl of Karin's Bloodswords, and book three of that series releases next week. It's Stefan's story, and I love me some Stefan! It's entitled Master of Craving. (okay, seriously, who could not resist that title!!!) So, if you've been interested in this series and haven't bought it yet, or if Karin is new to you and you want to know what's got me all hot and bothered about this brotherhood of knights, then head on over to S&S and get yourself a free download and try her out. I know you won't be disappointed. Karin writes very hot, alpha Norman Knights!!!

Here's the link: Karin Tabke free download

Well, that's it guys! Have yourself a thrilling Thursday!!!!
Be well, lusty and happy!

Congrats, Lyoness!!

Amanda McIntyre said...

Hearty congratulations, Lyoness!

It has been a pure delight to have two such exquisite specimans of the male form under one roof!

My dearest Lord C.M. summons another ice pak, the poor dear.

Too much of a good thing,as they say.

On the other hand, one could say the same of the good ladies of the manor...for sweet is the taste of wine on a lovers lips!

Alas,tales of utter enjoyment must find their pleasure in your least for the moment. Until the mighty pen finds its way to paper.

What was the term Miss Charlotte used as we showed Mr. Gideon the knots Lord CM has taught us...

Ah yes...something about where the wild things are!

Indeed! They reside at the LIT Manor! teehee
