New Year’s Blog Hop with Lisa Carlisle

NYEBH Banner

Welcome to the first Annual Smile Somebody Loves You New Years Eve Blog Hop. I am starting off the new year with a new release. Red Sage is releasing A Marine’s Proposal, my novella set on the exotic island of Okinawa, Japan, on January 1st. So  I’ll be on my computer all day busy with all the details involved with a new release! As an author, I can’t think of a better way to start the new year. We get very excited about these things. We don’t sleep, we can’t sit still. We pace with excitement and anxiety about our addition to the family. 😉

A Marine’s Proposal

A Marine's Proposal by Lisa Carlisle

When Slade Masters, her closest friend in the Marine Corps, proposes to her, Caitlyn O’Neill lets her thrill overshadow the catch. It’s a marriage in name only. Slade thinks a temporary marriage is the perfect solution to their problematic living situations in the barracks. Despite her reservations about the deceit involved, Caitlyn is thrilled to live off-base and experience the culture of the island of Okinawa, Japan, as a local—especially with Slade. Swept up in the excitement of apartment hunting and planning a wedding, she silences the anxiety within and goes along with Slade’s plans. They struggle to fight their growing attraction while acting on their script. On their wedding night, their bodies heat up with the thrill of being so close. Desire intensifies during a heated moment on the dance floor. How can they play off the charade of their marriage now that they have complicated their arrangement? Have they ruined their plan or will they find a way to continue? Or has their passionate night together uncovered hidden desires impossible to ignore?

Available at Red Sage

I hope this is the start of many new releases coming out in 2014. I’ve completed the first draft of a paranormal erotic romance in my Underground Encounters series with Ellora’s Cave. Gargoyle’s Embrace just came out. It’s a sexy shorter story in the series, what they aptly call “Quickies.”

gargoylesembrace_msrGargoyle’s Embrace

Fifth in the Underground Encounters series. Tracy isn’t sure why she’s drawn to a particular gargoyle statue in the Goth club where she works. After the stone takes human form to protect her from her abusive ex, she brings the handsome, naked male to her apartment. It’s impossible to ignore the seductive appeal of a man sculpted like a Viking warrior. Danton has only hours in human form to spend with the woman he has hungered for. He’s convinced what’s between them is more than hot sex, but he needs to convince Tracy of that before he turns back to stone.

Kicking off 2014 with a New Release – A Marine’s Proposal by Lisa Carlisle

As an author, I can’t think of a better way to start the new year than with a new release. You don’t know how excited we get about these things. It’s so hard to contain all that building emotion until release day. So here’s a fair warning–new year, new release!

“A definite read for any #PNR fan” – Review for Gargoyle’s Embrace

gargoylesembrace_msrThrilled to wake up to a new review of Gargoyle’s Embrace:

“Gargoyle’s Embrace was exactly what I needed that to fill that hankering for a sweet, hot PNR. Danton is quite the man or should I say gargoyle. Strong, silent, ever watching over to protect Tracy, little does she know she has a protector close by. This romance is sweet, with just the right combination steam and story to make this PNR fanatic smile.”

Is Bigger Better? MFRW Home for the Holidays Blog Hop

bloghopsWe had a fake tree growing up, but once I met my husband he introduced me to the tradition of shopping for a real Christmas tree.

What did you think I was talking about? 😉

Each year, the trees seem to get bigger and bigger, swallowing up part of my living room and blocking me from one of my book cases. Sometimes I stay home and make hot cocoa while he goes out with the kids, but this year I went with them to “make sure they don’t get a tree that’s too big.”

I went with them all right. And I pointed out a tree that I thought would work nice. They all agreed and we brought it home. Once we tried setting it up in the living room, my husband exclaimed, “This is the biggest tree we’ve ever had in here. I don’t think it’s going to fit!”

Whoops! So if you shop for a tree this time of year, tell me your tips for picking the right tree.

I’d also like to share my latest release that just came out with Ellora’s Cave. It’s a short, hot paranormal romance featuring a very sexy gargoyle. I love the idea of protective gargoyles.

gargoylesembrace_msrGargoyle’s Embrace

Fifth in the Underground Encounters series.

Tracy isn’t sure why she’s drawn to a particular gargoyle statue in the Goth club where she works. After the stone takes human form to protect her from her abusive ex, she brings the handsome, naked male to her apartment. It’s impossible to ignore the seductive appeal of a man sculpted like a Viking warrior.

Danton has only hours in human form to spend with the woman he has hungered for. He’s convinced what’s between them is more than hot sex, but he needs to convince Tracy of that before he turns back to stone.

Ellora’s Cave released Rock Me Tonight in paperback today!

This paranormal erotic romance was named:

  • A Summer Pick by All Romance Ebooks

  • A Recommended Trailer by USA Today’s Happy Ever After

“The chemistry between Lily and Nico is off the charts. The sex is hot and steamy. They are a great match together in and out of the bedroom.”

Rock Me Tonight

By Lisa Carlisle

Third in the Underground Encounters series

rockmetonight_msrLily Everett needs sex, but won’t consider a permanent relationship, because she harbors a secret she’s certain no one will understand. When she meets the singer of a rock band at an underground nightclub, she’s disarmed by his sensual voice and mischievous good looks. After an icy introduction, Lily warms up to Nico’s charms.

A computer geek by day, Nico dons a rock singer persona by night. He’s tired of women pursuing him just because he’s in a band—the sex may be handy, but he wants something more. He’s intrigued by Lily’s reticence.

Keeping her emotional distance proves difficult the more Lily uncovers the intelligent, considerate man hiding behind Nico’s bad-boy persona. Their encounters are hot-hot-hot, but Nico wants more from Lily than sex. When Lily lets down her guard and reveals her other side, Nico’s shock destroys their closeness and they both doubt they can overcome their differences.
