Music Monday! --MJ's Dance Tracks (sorta kinda NSFW.)

So, it's my turn:) You may or may not know, but I LOVE to dance (and drag Piper and everyone else into dancing with me at every possible opportunity). I'll post a mix of current and old favorites...and I promise no Justin Bieber this time. I think I finally got that out of my system.


Okay, so no Justin, but there is Britney. I think this is her best song. By far.






I think Ke$ha is hilarious, and I'll dance to any of her stuff...but this is out at the clubs here right now:)







Not sure if a better dance song exists. Yeah, I'm pretty sure it doesn't.






I love reggeton so much Piper has given me honorary Puerto Rican status...hehe.






Mmm, Pitbull. I am so chair dancing now.






Could NEVER still when this was on...






No dance mix would be right without at least one song from each of these two:



Snoop....(and of course Pharrell. Nice:) )






And Missy... (The NSFW version because I think the edited one sucks)

Just as a side-note from me (Piper), appearance-wise Nicky's character was inspired by a certain scrawny tattooed model that MJ and I both salivate over think is hot. :P These pics would have been him in his late teens/early 20s. I'm putting them behind a jump break just in case you'd rather imagine Nicky on your own. But if you're curious...

Moonlight Becomes You: Behind the Scenes Fact Sheet

So, I put this little fact sheet together just for fun. Were you still wondering about certain things when you finished reading Moonlight Becomes You? You might find the answer(s) here! (Beware of spoilers after the jump break.)

~*~

- Originally the story was 1500-2000 words longer than it is now. During editing, about 95% of the first chapter and about 80% of the epilogue were cut from the manuscript.
- Of the band members in Luck, William Paige is the only non-Latino. Shane and Nick are Puerto Rican. Dre, the drummer, and Luck’s manager, Emmanuel Cortez, are both Mexican. (I (MJ) am completely non-latino but Piper deemed me honorary Puerto Rican after this. Lol.)
- The band’s name, Luck, comes from Shane and Nick’s last name, Ventura. In Spanish, the word means: 1. Happiness, contentment, 2. Luck, good fortune.
- The band, Moonlight, was inspired by our mutual favorite band, Muse.
- The neighborhood Nick and Shane grew up in was based on the area in Chicago where I, Piper, was raised. (MJ did her best with Chicago, but has only been there twice.)
-We paid homage to our band by naming one of Luck's songs Absolution. Absolution is one of Muse's albums (and MJ and Piper's favorite).

Spoilers ahoy!

Ebook giveaway for a newly published m/m author!


Darkness Awaits...

Alone in the world after the deaths of his parents and twin brother, desperate to escape the memories of the ones he lost, and driven by a need from a recurring dream, Michael searches for a new life. And a new life he finds; a life full of myths that are real, wicked pleasures that the darker side of sex offers for those that are submissive, and an extended life. Max, a creature that depends on the blood of the living, offers his heart wrapped in chains and silken ropes. But along with his love comes hidden dangers, plots that threaten to destroy the new life Michael has embraced, and an enemy that seeks revenge. As Michael descends into the darkness his courage, strength and love are tested.

Calm down. It’s okay, beautiful. Calm down and listen to me.”

“Why won’t you let me see you? I need to see you. God help me, what are you?” This couldn’t be a dream; it was too realistic. Trying to deny it was pointless. Creatures like him didn’t exist, they were nothing more than a myth. Weren’t they? “Listen to me.” The command in his voice stopped me cold. “It’s going to be okay. Don’t be afraid of me. Don’t be afraid of what you feel when I touch you. You’ll get the answers you want tonight; no more waiting. Remember that…”
The alarm on my cell woke me up. What was it with this dream, and alarms? The dream had never been so intense or final, and for once I didn’t have a raging erection. My eyes were drawn to the clock on the wall. I didn’t have long before my dinner date with Paul and Andy. I shoved my hair out of my face and stood before my dresser mirror. A dark mark on my neck caught my attention. “What is that?” I said, leaning closer to the mirror. “No way. It can’t be.” Blinking dots circled in front of my eyes. There was a roaring in my ears. Sliding down to the floor, I ducked my head between my knees before I passed out. “That’s not a hickey. It’s impossible. There’s no way there’s a hickey on my neck.” When the urge to pass out left me, I got to my knees and peered into the mirror again. It was still there. “What’s happening to me?"
I stood up, and stared at my reflection. I ran my finger over the mark and jumped when it tingled. It proved my dream was something… more.

A Challenge and a Stetson - Guest Post by L.C. Chase

Once upon a time, I wrote het romance. *gasp* I know. Crazy, right? Anyway, back before I saw the light, I used to haunt the Harlequin online forums. They have a section called The Write Stuff, which, regardless of genre, is extremely helpful to anyone wanting to learn and improve the craft of writing. In that section is a regular “Writers Challenge” thread. Every couple of weeks, someone would post a prompt, with or without a photo. The prompt could be anything from “finish this sentence”, to “include these words”, or “here’s the set up”. You write your take on the prompt in one thousand words or less, and whoever won the previous challenge chooses the winner. That winner then sets the next challenge, and so on.

I loved those challenges, as they had a way of sparking my muse into high action. I haven’t entered the challenges in ages, but I do still take them on from time to time as regular writing exercises. My new M/M romance novel, LONG TALL DRINK, was born from one of those challenges.

The prompt that brought Ray Ford and Travis Morgan to life was very open-ended and went something like: This week's challenge is a western...involving a cowboy (and romance of course!)...an urban cowboy, a Texas rodeo star, a wrangler, vaquero, rancher. Take your pick, as long as he wears a Stetson.

So, I took that prompt and, far exceeding one thousands words, wrote about not one, but two cowboys, and they both wear Stetsons. ;-)

The Blurb:
Fourth generation rancher, Ray Ford has lived a lie for nearly forty years. Having seen what can happen to an openly gay cowboy in small town America, and not willing to risk his ranch Ford Creek’s legendary reputation, he keeps that part of himself tightly locked down. Everything changes one Sunday morning when Ray, out of character, picks up a handsome hitchhiker looking for work. Hiring the enigmatic cowboy stretches the bounds of Ray’s control and, suddenly, he finds himself asking just what he'd be willing to risk for a chance at true love.


Travis Morgan learned a hard lesson early in his life -- love is conditional. Even though he’s a world-class horse trainer in high demand, he lives the life of a drifter, moving from ranch to ranch like the wind. He’ll play when the opportunity arises, but he won’t invest himself emotionally. But when he takes on the job training horses at Ford Creek Ranch, the stoic rancher with the sexy five o’clock shadow just might change all that -- if Travis can take the risk and stick around long enough to find out.

The Giveaway:
Leave a comment and tell me what it is about a man in snug jeans, worn boots, and a cowboy hat that gets you all hot under the collar, and you could win a free copy of LONG TALL DRINK. Yeehaw!

Win an autographed paperback of the "Cross Bones" anthology!

Hi, all! Time for another contest! (We like giving stuff away, can't you tell? :P) This time around it's for Dreamspinner's forthcoming Cross Bones anthology. Both M.J. and I contributed stories to this anthology and we're excited to read the stories by the 13 other fabulous authors we're privileged to be in this anthology with. To celebrate the release, we're giving away an autographed paperback copy! The book will be signed by both M.J. and myself. So, what do you have to do to win it? The rules are the same as always! Check them out at the end of the post. :)




Ahoy, me proud beauty, shiver me timbers! I ask ye to sail me jollyboat on the high seas, lubber, but will ye dare to accept? On offer be a pirate's life full of danger and risk, and not just to yer neck, but to yer very virgin heart! There's many a bodice to be ripped--or perhaps I should say many a codpiece to be snapped--and should ye be graced enough to cross bones with a corsair, don't be an addlepate! Heave ho, lad, handsomely, and show him how ye bury yer treasure!

Pirates didn't only sail the high seas in historical times. Modern-day renegades and futuristic rebels are just as ripe for adventure and plunder. No matter the time, place, or circumstances, bad boys steal affection as often as they salvage treasure, and in these stories of romance, a rogue's black heart always conceals a center of gold.

Our Stories

Irish Red by M.J. O'Shea

Christopher, the barkeep at The Dagger, has always been wary of storms. Storms always bring trouble, washed in from the sea, right to his door. That night was no different. The rain and the wind brought with them Irish Red O’Malley - pirate king of the seas, captain of the famed Sargasso, a ruthless, cunning killer... and the love of Christopher’s life.

Black John by Piper Vaughn

Former pirate Juan “Black John” de Avila has found a home on Isla Sagrario, a safe haven for men who desire the touch of a man rather than a pretty woman. When Jacob, the lover he thought had died, washes ashore after a shipwreck, Juan believes he’s been given a second chance at love. But Jacob Bellamy thinks the safety of Sagrario is an illusion, one that will come to a brutal end should their enemies ever catch wind of their whereabouts.

To read the blurbs for the other stories, check out the "Cross Bones" page on the DSP website. (Just expand the excerpts section.)

Get Lucky: Win an ebook copy of "Moonlight Becomes You", Plus Swag!

Here we go again, ladies and gents! This time we actually have a special contest. We have two grand prizes, both which include an ebook copy of our upcoming (as in tomorrow :P) release, Moonlight Becomes You, along with the swag in the picture below:




(To clarify, the swag package includes: "Get Lucky" bracelets in all four colors (bonus: they glow in the dark!), two sticky note pads, and a "Get Lucky" tote (14"x14"x3").)

But, as a bonus, we will be giving one "Get Lucky" bracelet to the first 20 entrants in the color of their choice (black text on pink, green on light blue, hot pink on purple-pink, & black on green)! If the winners happen to be among the first 20 entrants, we will give bracelets to entrants 21 and 22 as well.

What is this whole "Get Lucky" thing, you ask? Well, Moonlight Becomes You is the first in our "Lucky Moon" series, which will be a total of 3 books, each featuring a protag connected to the band Luck. We decided we wanted a slogan for the whole series, and, thus, "Get Lucky" was born. And we kind of like it. :D

So, even though this is a special contest, all the normal rules apply. And, just FYI for all of our overseas friends,  this contest *is* still open worldwide. Feel free to enter no matter where you live. :D

And I know it shouldn’t have to be said, but if you win, please respect the intellectual property of the authors (us) and don’t share the book or give it away to anyone else.
