Birthday Blog HopWelcome to the 2012 Birthday Blog Hop! It’s not my birthday until July, but today and tomorrow I’d like to celebrate everyone’s birthday. My birthday gift to one lucky commentor will be a $10 Blushing Books Gift Certificate. Here’s how to get it:

  1. Sign up for either my newsletter or the blog’s general feed (not the comment feed). You can find sign up forms down in the dark section below, on the left side. You don’t have to sign up for both. One is fine.

If you follow those two instructions, you’ll be entered in the $10 Blushing Books Gift Certificate drawing. The winner will be chosen among qualifying entries through

Cover: Liv's Journey Blushing BooksNow, for my birthday entry. My most recent release is from Blushing Books, and it’s called Liv’s Journey. It is the erotic romance story of large-size model Liv Aune, and Army Major Trey Journey. They find their way through some conflicts and lots of sexy spankings, but eventually, there’s a satisfying happy ending. In the novella, we learn that Trey is often stationed in Afghanistan.

Army Soldier - Trey JourneyOn Liv’s birthday, after several months of separation, Trey leaves her a voicemail from his post far away.

Hey there, darlin’…

It’s your birthday and it kills me not to be there for you. Things here are static for a time, but we’re expectin’ trouble from the bad guys sometime in the next few days. What I wouldn’t give to be home in Texas with you today instead. It’s my job, though, and one I usually enjoy. I guess I haven’t gotten over bein’ a kid playin’ soldiers.

Remember your last birthday? Maybe the best part of that day was our private celebration. Remember the cake smeared all over your nipples? I remember real well! That was some deeelicious frostin’. The sweet smell of you haunts me like a memory I can’t quite capture.

I want to be there with you, lickin’ you all over and smackin’ that saucy behind of yours. Watchin’ it grow bright and hot would turn me crazy. It always does.

Well, darlin’, I have to go supervise a drill. I miss you. Afghanistan is no place to be spendin’ your wife’s birthday.

Like Josh Turner sings, “I wouldn’t be a man, if I didn’t feel like this…

“Rock and roll with me baby all night long; Soul to soul with me baby all night long.”

All night long, that’s what I want, Liv.

Happy birthday, baby.

I love you.

If you enjoyed this romantic birthday message, you’ll enjoy reading about how Liv and Trey found their love and conquered the issues that kept them apart. Liv’s Journey is available now on Blushing Books. It’s the first in the Journey family series.

But wait (cheesy pitchman voice), there’s more!

Commentors here will also be entered in the grand prize drawing for the whole blog hop! You can win a Kindle Touch or a $60 Amazon or B & N Gift Card. Plus, every blog you comment on gets you another chance to win prizes. Visit everyone! (list below)
