Naughty New Year Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Naugthy New Year Blog Hop, if you’ve fallen off the bus just click on the picture above and you can get back on. Also if you are jumping on the tour midway if you click on the picture you can start at the beginning.

Well like most people I been eating far too much over the holidays and of course that has me thinking of New Year’s Resolutions.  I figured if I write down my resolutions I’ll be committed to doing them, plus eyecandy always motivates me. LOL So here goes, here are a few of my resolutions for 2013.

First off I should probably eat a little healthier.

Second make sure to exercise regularly. After all it does a body good.

Take up a new hobby.  The guitar might be fun

This year I’m going to stress less and take time to kick back, relax and just enjoy life more.

Alright so those are a few of my resolutions for 2013. What about you, do you make resolutions? And if so what kinds of things are on your list?

Thanks for joining the tour. Happy New Year and All the best in 2013. Make sure you comment because I’ll probably do a little draw for people who comment on my blog post as well as the giveaway at the end of the blog tour.

Earth Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Earth Day Blog Hop, if you’ve fallen off the bus just click on the picture above and you can get back on. Also if you are jumping on the tour midway if you click on the picture you can start at the beginning.

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Lauren Fraser and I write contemporary romance. I admit my books tend to be on the steamy side. *grin* One lucky commenter will win a copy of their choice of a book from my backlist so feel free to cruise on over to the bookshelf and see what’s available.  Oh and be sure to comment on the blog post since that’s the way to enter. *grin*

 

Okay so I had good intentions for this blog post, honest I did, but when I started thinking of things to post that were environmentally conscious my mind did the normal thing and started thinking green. Well that’s when the wheels fell off the bus. Green made me think Green Lantern which of course made me think Ryan Reynolds and once I was thinking about him there was no turning back. So instead of my full-out environmentally conscious blog post that I had intended, yep you guessed it you’re getting some eye candy instead. Oops. But at least I’m keeping a green theme in my pics. LOL

What? He was green lantern after all.

Green socks

See, I told you I kept the theme green. LOL

All right, I managed to get the wheels back on, so here are 10 tips to make your home more Green.

1. Wash clothes in cold water

2. Use a clothesline and hang your clothes to dry.

3. Turn off lights when you are not in the room.

4. Program your thermostat to decrease the temperature at night when you are sleeping.

5.  Bring your own reusable bags to the store to use rather than getting more plastic bags.

6. Use green cleaners to clean your home. There are loads of great non-toxic options; vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice or look for green alternatives in the store that use natural ingredients rather than harsh chemicals.

7. Clean and replace filters. Your furnace, vacuum, dryer etc all have to work considerably harder when the filter is dirty than when it’s clean. So a clean filter means less energy consumed.

8. Only run full loads with your dishwasher or laundry to save not only energy but water consumption as well.

9. Recycle, reduce, reuse.

10. And of course save a tree and read ebooks instead. *grin*

So what is your best tip for making your home more energy efficient? Or what do you do to help keep the earth a little greener?

Halloween Blog Tour

Welcome to the Halloween Blog hop. My blog is not the starting point, so  you can go here and start at the beginning.   Be sure to read the rules on how to win prizes.  On the last stop of the tour, you can leave your name and e-mail addy to register for those great prizes, make sure you don’t miss that step since there is a Kindle up for grabs as well as other prizes.

 

When it comes to Halloween costumes a guy can go all ghoulie and scary and that’s always fun but since my latest book has a firefighter for a hero I’ve been thinking a lot about men in uniform, since they are sooo HAWT. So with that in mind I scrounged up a few pictures for inspiration,  I figure you can’t go wrong with a costume that feeds into that fantasy a little bit. I was a little torn on just which uniform/costume is the hottest so maybe you can help me decide.

 

There’s always the good ol’warrior Roman costume.

 

Or you can’t go wrong with the military man, those are always fun.

Mmm, a police officer is always a great choice.

 Or holy hotness The fireman.

So which costume do you think is the best option for a man in uniform?

Now just in case these delicious men have distracted you and you’ve fallen off the bus you can get back on at

Since one lucky person on the hop will win a copy of my latest Ellora’s Cave book Too Hot, I figured I should give you a little sneak peak as well.

Too Hot by Lauren FraserBlurb

When it comes to her career, Josie Sharp sees things with perfect clarity, but her love life? Well, that’s completely out of focus. Coming off a rough breakup, she’s insecure and hesitant about men, especially ones as sexy as firefighter Marco Patelli. Although she may be wary of his intentions, she’d have to be a fool to pass up the chance to be with a man like him. And foolishness is not in her genes.

Josie is nothing like the women Marco normally goes for, but something about the shy photographer’s vulnerability calls to his dominant side. As he helps Josie explore her sexuality, Marco realizes there is so much more to Josie than meets the eye.

But when lies and insecurities collide, Marco is going to have to fight to prove to Josie that what they have goes so much deeper than sex.

 

Excerpt

Josie made her way toward the gym. The sound of old-school, AC/DC’s Thunderstruck, carried down the hallway. At the doorway she stopped and looked inside. Her eyes nearly bugged out of her head as she saw Marco running on the treadmill. Alone in the gym, he ran at a grueling pace. Sweat ran down his bare chest. She followed the path of one droplet as it snaked between the ridges of his abs, through the dark hair under his bellybutton and into the waistband of his shorts. She tried to swallow but her throat seemed to have closed tightly, forcing her to gulp for air. Holy mother of god, she wanted to lick every inch of his body.

His eyes met hers, heat flared between them. He must have seen the raw lust on her face because a slow, carnal smile spread across his face.

“Hey, Josie, give me one sec.” He flicked off the treadmill, grabbed his t-shirt from the handle and wiped it across his face.

“Did you get my message?” he asked.

Unable to drag her eyes from his chest, she nodded.

“So, what’s your answer?”

“My what?” Raising her head, she sighed. Oh the man was beautiful. Around him somehow her mind shut off and she became a bumbling idiot. His eyes twinkled with amusement and he winked.

“Are you up for coming out with us tonight?” he asked again.

She blinked, trying to clear the fog. God, he must think she was such a loser. She couldn’t even have a normal conversation. “Umm…sure,” she stammered.

Marco stepped toward her. Josie’s nipples beaded tightly, pressing against the lace of her bra.

A sexy smile curved the corner of his lips. “Do I make you nervous, Red?”

She squared her shoulders. “Of course not,” she said, forcing herself to stand her ground and not move away.

He grinned and moved closer. She could feel the heat from his body and the scent of his sweat turned her on better than any cologne ever could.

He tucked her bangs behind her ear and trailed his hand along the back of her neck, cupping her head with his palm to hold her in place.

“Then how come you’re shivering now?” he whispered against her ear. His hot breath sent another shiver through her body. “Josie, clearly you’re as attracted to me as I am to you so why are you fighting it?” he asked.

“I’m not fighting anything.” Damn, the breathless sigh in her voice didn’t exactly add much validity to her statement.

“Liar,” he said and nipped her earlobe between his teeth. The touch sent an arrow of heat straight from her ear to her pussy and she clamped her knees together.

Marco ran a teasing path along the shell of her ear. It felt amazing. She closed her eyes and tilted her head to allow him better access.

“Don’t make me prove you wrong, Josie.”

Her eyes flashed open, meeting his. The heat burning in his eyes was almost enough to melt her on the spot.

Trying to hold onto some semblance of control, she said, “Guys like you aren’t attracted to women like me.”

He wrapped his muscular arm around her waist and pulled her hips against his. The hard length of his cock pressed against her stomach. “Clearly my body is telling you otherwise.”

Holy cow, he really wanted her. She grinned to herself. Without thought, she shifted her body and rubbed against him, loving the way she could feel his cock thicken through his gym shorts.

He hissed in a breath. “Damn, Red.”

She leaned back, putting a little space between them and trailed her finger down the length of his chest, stopping at the waistband of his shorts. His breathing increased as he watched her finger.

“So you seriously want to have dinner with me?”

His cock twitched beneath the fabric of his shorts. He gripped her hips firmly with his hands and rubbed against her. “What I’d like is to have you for dinner but we can start with grabbing a bite to eat. You seemed a bit umm…unsure the other day so I thought you’d be more comfortable with a group thing.”

Unsure. That was one word for it. Terrified of making an ass of herself was more like it.

“So what do you say, Josie? You free tonight?”

Labor Day Blog Hop

hot men

Happy Labor Day. If you’ve landed on my page because of the blog hop, welcome, I hope you are having a great time on the tour. If you are just starting the tour here don’t worry you can jump on the bus, just click here.

 

Now I don’t know about you but Labor Day makes me think of workers and workers makes me think of sweaty, shirtless men. So I figured since that’s what I like to look at I’d share the wealth a bit.

Anyone need any reno’s done?

Tire changed? I don’t know about you but it kind of makes me want to take my car in.

And since my new release  Too Hot just released a couple of weeks ago and it’s all about a sexy fireman it seemed only fitting to share one. *grin*

 

Here’s the blurb for Too Hot.

Year of the Rabbit blog tour

I’m Lauren Fraser and you’ve officially made it to my stop on the blogtour. I hope you are having a great time so far. Now if you happen to have just wandered here on your own be sure to jump on the tourbus, and if you’ve fallen off, you can jump back on as well. Begin here

Well I know alot of authors on the tour are writing short stories, and I thought about doing that, honest I did,  but I’m an eyecandy kind of girl. When I saw the banner for the bloghop, you guessed it, the guy and the tattoo caught my eye.

So I figured since my new book Dani’s Duo just came out yesterday and one of my hero’s is a tattoo artist it might be more fun to share some pictures of the kind of work Paddy might do. Just to wet your appetite a little. *grin* Granted I’m sure he’d prefer to work on women, but I prefer to look at sexy men so there you go.  LOL Enjoy.

 

Why is it on some guys nipple piercings just look so damn hot?

Come on now you are supposed to be focusing on the tattoo. LOL

 

What? He has a tattoo?  *snicker*

 

Now that you are inspired a little bit.

Blurb

Attorney Danika James is ready to celebrate her greatest win to date, but not with a bunch of stodgy lawyers and martinis. Beneath Danika’s buttoned-up exterior lives a woman with wild-side desires she has yet to fully discover.

Tattoo artist Paddy O’Shea walks on society’s razor edge. When he learns his best friend, Cooper Hanes, has more than a casual interest in Danika, Paddy suggests a weekend celebration of exploration none of them will ever forget.

For the next forty-eight hours the men satisfy fantasies Dani didn’t even know she had. But every party has to end. Doesn’t it? Or can the courtroom diva turn Dani’s Duo into something as permanent as one of Paddy’s tattoos?
