Hello all! I am SUPER excited to announce that on Saturday, Feb 22nd at 5 PM (EST), I'll be taking part in a video chat with the fabulous Amy Lane and Rhys Ford! [insert fangirl squee here]

Dreamspinner Press has introduced these video chats as a way for readers to get to know their favorite authors. The best part (aside getting to hang with these awesome ladies), is you get to ask YOUR questions. All you have to do is leave your question on the Fireside Chats post at the Dreamspinner blog. You can ask a question for all three or for individual authors. ** If you have a question for a particular author, make sure you specify which author, or all three will consider the question.

http://dreamspinnerpress.com/blog/2014/02/10/fireside-chat-february-22/ You can also leave your questions here, and I'll forward them onto Dreamspinner. As soon as I have the link to the chat, I'll post it, and the video should be available on YouTube not long after.

Book of the Week: Tequila Mockingbird

CCochetBooks While I was at RainbowCon, I attended the series writing panel where I amazingly won two ebooks from the fabulous Rhys Ford. As you imagine, I have been fangirling since. One of the books I received was an ARC of Tequila Mockingbird.

Now, I have to say that I LOVE the Sinners Series. From the moment I met the Morgan clan in Sinner's Gin, I was a goner. How can you not love each and every one of them? Each Sinners book seems to get even better than the last and Tequila Mockingbird doesn't disappoint. The story was sexy, sweet, funny, and heartwarming. I love that we get to revisit previous couples from the series and enjoyed watching their lives intertwine.

Forest's character was strong yet vulnerable. He has a troubled past he's trying to put behind him, but certain circumstances keep getting in the way. It's heartbreaking, especially one particular source of Forest's pain. Luckily, there's Lieutenant Conner Morgan to catch Forest and lend him his strength, not to mention other members of the Morgan clan. Forest is a great addition to the Sinners family and he deserved so much love.

Getting to know Conner Morgan was engrossing. As the oldest Morgan and a SWAT Lieutenant, you expect him to be this serious, no-nonsense kind of guy, but Conner has a sweet, softer side, one that comes out especially around Forest. Conner had his own struggles, despite being brought up in a loving and accepting family. I loved how once he made up his mind, he used that Conner courage to follow through.

If you haven't read the Sinners series I highly recommended. And now, I just have one question for Ms. Ford: When can we expect Quinn and Rafe's book?

Tequila MockingbirdLG Tequila Mockingbird by Rhys Ford Book Three of the Sinners Series Genre: Contemporary, Mystery/Suspense Pages: 250 Publisher: Dreamspinner Press ISBN: 978-1-63216-014-0 Blurb

Lieutenant Connor Morgan of SFPD’s SWAT division wasn’t looking for love. Especially not in a man. His life plan didn’t include one Forest Ackerman, a brown-eyed, blond drummer who’s as sexy as he is trouble. His family depends on him to be like his father, a solid pillar of strength who’ll one day lead the Morgan clan.

No, Connor has everything worked out—a career in law enforcement, a nice house, and a family. Instead, he finds a murdered man while on a drug raid and loses his heart comforting the man’s adopted son. It wasn’t like he’d never thought about men — it’s just loving one doesn’t fit into his plans.

Forest Ackerman certainly doesn’t need to be lusting after a straight cop, even if Connor Morgan is everywhere he looks, especially after Frank’s death. He’s just talked himself out of lusting for the brawny cop when his coffee shop becomes a war zone and Connor Morgan steps in to save him. Whoever killed his father seems intent on Forest joining him in the afterlife. As the killer moves closer to achieving his goal, Forest tangles with Connor Morgan and is left wondering what he’ll lose first—his life or his heart.
