What a shame – no boudoir pictures in the Washington Post today. Who wants to post a pic of their hot hot romance bedroom here? Lemme know.
But in case your thoughts aren’t turning to the bedroom (and I’ll admit: mine are. I’m so sleep deprived I’d commit a felony for three extra hours of sleep) here are a hodgepodge of links and funny for your amusement.
If you are in a mind for pictures, here’s a rather fun contest: Where in the World is The Spymaster’s Lady? Take your copy of the hunkalicious man-titty that is wrapped around the awesome that is Joanna Bourne’s The Spymaster’s Lady and take a picture of it in “an interesting location.” Note: I reviewed the book awhile back and gave it an A-. I love this book like merde and mon dieu (tm Nathalie Gray) and even if the most exotic place you read it is in your bathtub, it’s STILL worth reading. But for a signed copy and a book thong? Hang off the roof by your toes with your copy, by all means!
Bourne is judging the entries, so there’s plenty of room for creativity. Winners get a signed copy of the book plus a pink bejeweled book thong (that’s not a euphemism). The entry I linked to says the deadline is Feb. 16th but I hear from good authority that the deadline will be extended to Feb. 28th so many more folks can get snappy and creative.
My copy is an ARC that’s currently in the wrecked construction site that is my basement so alas, my entry won’t impress anyone, unless the idea of dust is a big turn-on.
Bitchery reader Taylor, from the hot, dry, sexxorific locale that is Iraq, sends this story that made my hoerk coffee up my nose:
I’m in Iraq as a civilian contractor and the holidays out here can be a bit depressing. However, one of my friends got a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift from his wife.
Apparently she misses him so much that she sent him a the kit so he can make a dildo of his own penis for her. And, just in case he can’t keep the 2 minute hard-on necessary for the mold to set, she also sent him a vibrating cock ring.
Now that is some red hot lovin’ right there. Although, I wonder if the poor thing knows she has opened her Hubby to a whole world of humor among his pals.
On the eve of Valentine’s Day comes good news out of Texas in a link courtesy of Azteclady and Michelle: a federal appeals court has overturned a Texas law forbidding the sale of sex toys. Women all over Texas sigh in pleasured relief.
I personally love Texas, particularly because the state brews the best beer ever, but wow. That law needed to be spanked. Hard.
Michelle said it best: “So now us bitches can play with our toys. Nice V-Day prezzie, huh?” Agreed. Everyone’s V should be celebrating in Texas today. Pass me a Shiner.
What better way to celebrate all that chocolate-coated lovernating than to also celebrate a birthday? RomanceNovel.tv was born one year ago today (how appropriate!) and one year later things are pretty damn awesome – and no, I’m not just talking about Candy’s and my videos, though they are hot, especially when you get Candy going on the joys of discovering that oral sex is REAL OMG.
Maria and Marissa are very quiet and behind-the-scenes about the whole thing, but I know that their efforts to launch romancenovel.tv require a great deal of personal time, generosity, long hours and a true love of the genre. From one fan of romance to pair of class acts: Happy Birthday and Happy Valentine’s Day.
And thanks for putting such an attractive out-take of me in your video. I’m going to go hide under my desk now.
And finally: fun stuff!
Miri has dedicated cupcake toppers of awesome to us for Valentine’s Day. “Where’s my actual cupcake?!” is the second thought that crossed my mind, right after, “AWESOME!”
