Guest: Keri Ford

Hey y’all! Today we have Keri Ford visiting with us, and she’s pretty much the tiniest, most adorable thing out there. You’d hate her [from jealousy] if she weren’t just so darn nice! And she’s right. :X We scheduled this over a year ago. Time flies!

Thanks Limecello for having me here today! Can you believe it’s already been a year since we scheduled this post? LOL. That means I had a year to write it. And it’s going to be a year’s worth of awesome!

Well, maybe next time we’ll shoot for a year of awesome in one post.

I’m going to be straight. This blog has nothing to do with my latest sexy release, Rough Ride. It is a small town-contemporary romance and is the first book in a series call The Roughnecks. It’s set in the south. In the small town of Apple Trail. Three brothers. Three best friends. Lots of funtimes.

THIS blog is about vacations.

Because I haven’t been on an actual pack-my-bags for the week vacation in forever it seems. I’ve gone places. Usually writer’s conference and yadda. But a for real vacation that was motivated for no reason at all other than just vacation? Yeah. It’s been a while.

So I’ve been googling. And discovering two things.

1-I don’t remember vacations costing this much.

2-WOW, off-peak times are basically half price (seriously. Look at cruises. HALF the price of summer/Christmas times).

The off-peak thing makes me extra happy I got married at the end September. But now that the kid is starting kindergarten in the fall…yeah, harder to do off-peak times. The beach in winter….um, not so much. So I’m still googling.

Doing all this reminds me that on my bucket list is buying a cabin on a lake. Now there’s a dream vacation. A couple hours away. Close enough we can go for a week, a long weekend or heck, just a regular two day weekend.

What’s your FAVORITE vacation spot? I want ideas. Leave me a comment and you’ll be entered for a digital copy of my latest release-Rough Ride. I mentioned the sexy funtimes, the bffs, and the brothers, right? Oh wait, and did you catch the covers too?

You do for family, no matter what. Lane Iverson knows that better than anyone. Harboring a secret about his mother’s death, Lane is counting the days until he finishes helping his brothers with some work and can head back to his hiding hole hours away. As long as he doesn’t have to face his three brothers every day, the guilt is easier to carry.
There is only one thing that can risk his plan. All of five foot tall with these deep eyes and a voice that shudders through him. The completely addicting, Gretchen Jones. She’s been watching him the entire time he’s been in town. With courage from her friends behind her, she confronts what she wants. To her surprise, that’s the easy part. Keeping her heart protected when she knows he’ll be leaving? Not so easy, but her only choice.
