Married to the Job

A new release from Cynthia Racette, Married to the Job is a romantic look at love at first sight and the the struggles of juggling a long distance releationship.

Blurb:

Dr. Miranda Perry is a workaholic whose job is everything to her. When sexy, smart, and suave Dr. Russell Rogers visits Palomar to give a seminar, he blows her world apart.

It’s love at first sight for Russ, and he uses every trick in his arsenal to convince Miranda to go out with him. In the short time they have together, sparks fly and sexual attraction burns up the sheets.

After Russ returns to his job in Boston, the two arrange hectic, emotion- and sex-filled moments, but the liaisons in the Midwest don’t cut it and a choice must be made. With each of them committed to prestigious jobs on opposite sides of the country, will they let the fire burn out because each is married to the job?

A couple of Excerpts for you to enjoy:

“I know we just met, but I want to kiss you,” he murmured, his nose in her hair. “There’s a dark corner over there. Come on.”
She shivered at his words, eager to feel his lips on hers. It seemed as if she’d waited forever for that touch even though it had only been a few hours since they met.
He led her across the floor to a dim space around the end of the bar. Pressing her into the corner, he brought his mouth down to hers, gently at first and then with more firmness. His arms closed around her waist and pulled her to him. Her body responded to the pressure of his, contouring itself around his shape. He nibbled on her neck for a few moments and then he brought his lips back to hers, insistently persuading hers to open widely in passion. Soon, they were both plunging their tongues into each other’s mouths, angling their heads for better access, frantic to get as close to each other as they could.
Heavy breathing filled the small space, and it emanated from both sides. This is so not good. She wanted to eat him alive, but they were in a public restaurant, and, if they didn’t restrain themselves soon, people would start to notice. If they hadn’t already. She stepped back, breaking his hold, and hating to lose his warmth, but they she knew they had to stop.
Slowly, as she dragged her lips from his, then leaned her forehead against his chest, she tried to calm her breathing and her heart. His lips touched her hair and then he set his cheek on top of her head. Finally, their breathing almost back to normal, they broke apart and drifted back to their chairs. She glanced around. No one appeared to be looking at them. She didn’t really care what other people thought, but still, she didn’t want to create a spectacle.
“I suppose I should apologize for that,” he said quietly as he pulled his chair in. “Except I’m not sorry about what happened at all.

And another taste….

They were both ready to come together when Miranda panicked. “Wait, Russ. I’m not sure we should be doing this. I’m not into one-night stands. I don’t do that sort of thing.”
“I don’t either.” Along with the heat and passion, his face showed determination.
“You’re leaving tomorrow. How can it be anything other than a one-night stand?”
“I may be leaving, but I’m not getting on that plane until I’ve made utter and complete love to you. And, whether I leave tomorrow or not, we’re not severing this relationship. Not if I have anything to say about it.”
She lay for a moment, staring up at him, stunned. He could tell no one had ever said anything like that to her. He didn’t want to let her go. Did that mean he wanted something permanent? Geez. He was afraid to go there yet, but just as much, he was afraid not to.
His heart fluttered and hot zings flew through his body. He watched Miranda simmer and burn, feelings settling at her center, where warmth and moistness and firing nerve endings invited him to explore.
Their gazes met and hers blazed with intense fire, like a conflagration started by two suns colliding.

Hello Blog world.  I am trying something new.  Something hopefully fresh and exciting for me and all of you.  Many in the blogging and twitter world who follow romance writers know me as the Hockeyvampiress.  I still answer to that name.  I am still going to be around twitter and facebook and hope you will enjoy what I am doing here.

Many know my love of paranormal romance and my connection (which is still ongoing) with Bitten By Books who gave me my first taste in reviewing.  Here I will be posting reviews of books I purchase myself, win, or am gifted through my favorite authors by spreading the word as members of various street teams.   I love almost all genre’s and although there are ones that pull me in more than another I hope to spread my opinion on various books.

I also will be making comments about my favorite sports.  OK sport for the most part.  I love hockey.  In particular I love the Buffalo Sabres.  I live in an arena almost as much as I do at home and cannot have enough.  In fact this season I decided that I didn’t have enough.  I took a job as an usherette for our local OHL team.  GO STING GO!

Finally I will be promoting my small independent business making bookthongs.  These custom bookthongs are made of awesome.  In fact the early attempts in designing and mastering these little pretties could have the added comment that they are made of blood.   Many top authors have taken advantage of my low prices and have had nothing but good things to say about them.  Your bookcover could be miniaturized forever in enamel.  Want something a little different?  What about your family members, favorite actor, pets, or maybe your favorite team logo?  Just about anything can be done.  Combined with a variety of beads and gossimer ribbon and you will want nothing else in the crack of your book again.

Finally there may be the random post about my favorite actor. Henry Cavill….. I claimed the Immortal God/Superman long before he became the hot property he is now.

Thanks for stopping by and for following.  And YES.  There will be a contest very soon.  Probably as soon as I return from my sons hockey tournament this weekend……
