JustRomance.me Bloghops
Welcome to the Earth Day BLOG HOP! If you’ve just stumbled upon us or fell off the hop you can get back on at www.justromance.me.

For those of you who don’t know me I’m Lauren Fraser and I write  contemporary romances that tend to be on the steamy side of things so you’ve been warned. LOL As part of the general bloghop I’m giving away an ebook copy of Sex, Sin and Surf, you enter at the end of the hop, but I’ll also do a little giveaway  here as well for the commenters of my blog post specifically so be sure to comment for a chance to win your choice of a book from my backlist.

In our house we try to do our part for the environment. We recycle, compost, have our own garden and try to do most of the things we talked about last year in my earth day post. I admit I’m not quite as environmentally conscious as I should be in some areas but I figure every little bit helps right?  As my kids get older they point out more ways we should be doing our part which is why I recently had to buy a rain barrel. Hmm, somehow when it comes to them taking shorter showers their environmental conscience goes out the window. Go figure.  Good thing they compensate in other areas. LOL

This year to celebrate earth day my kids wanted to  participate in the “walk for water” so that’s what we’ll be doing. It seems like a great way to celebrate earth day. So what about you? Do you have plans to celebrate earth day? Do you do anything different in your house on that day to protect the environment? Or do you do your part year round?

Suggestions for Earth Day.
1. Plant a tree or garden.
2. Bike or walk to work instead of driving.
3. Shower with a friend to conserve energy.
4. Go for a walk and enjoy nature.
5. And what better way to wrap up earth day then relaxing with an environmentally friendly ebook. So to wet your appetite here’s a snippet from my latest release. Yielding for Him

Sometimes in order to have it all you have to be willing to risk everything.Self-made billionaire Donovan James works hard and plays harder. After all life is no fun without risks. But finding a woman who agrees has been more difficult than he’d ever imagined, until now.

Lisa Scott knows how to get what she wants and what she wants is a life with Van. They belong together and she’ll do whatever it takes to make him realize it. Including taking him up on his challenge to invite his best friend, Jason, into their bed for one night.

She’ll give him his fantasy and in return, hopefully, she’ll get hers.

Lisa glanced at the windows. She couldn’t believe they’d done that. How could they have had sex in his office for all the world to see? Even just thinking about it now made her insides squishy. Sex with Van was always amazing, but times like this, when he pushed past what she thought she wanted—those times? Those were freaking off the charts.

“Come here,” Van called.

Pulling her attention away from her thoughts and back to him, she walked towards his outstretched hand. When they touched, he pulled her down into his lap in his office chair.

She wrapped her arm around his shoulder and cuddled against his hard chest. “Van, that was… I don’t…” She paused. “I don’t understand how you know me so well, it’s like…” Unable to articulate her thoughts, she sighed.

Van brushed her hair off her face and looked down at her tenderly. “We want the same things, Lisa. You and I aren’t all that different. It’s nothing to be ashamed of that we like things a little kinkier than the average person. That’s why we’re so good together.”

Her heart stuttered—was he finally going to do it? They’d been a couple for almost a year now, longer than he’d ever been with anyone else. They’d talked about a future together but it seemed like he always hesitated about taking that next step.

She closed her eyes and sank into his hand against her cheek. There was no denying they were amazing together. And for now maybe that needed to be enough. What they had he wasn’t going to find with anyone else, of that she was sure. Eventually he’d realise it. She was a patient woman. She hadn’t got to where she was without being able to help people see her point of view.

“So, about Jason.” Van’s deep voice broke her out of her thoughts.

Heat raced across her cheeks. Mortified, she closed her eyes. God, she couldn’t believe she’d admitted she’d like to fuck him. Yeah, that was what every guy wanted to hear about his best friend. Maybe if she played it cool he’d just drop it. Pretend it didn’t happen. “What about him?”

    Love the excerpt and your ideas, =) I think I´ll spend the day in my garden, reading. Or if I´m working, I´ll take the bike instead of the bus.
    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Friday!

    Happy Green Day

  • sandra martinez says:

    I recycle a lot. Also, I like to reuse things and make them into some kinds of arts and crafts with the little ones around. Nothing like taking “trash” and making it into something beautiful.

    who knew I was environmentally friendly I always just thought I was frugal ;0) Thanks Carin

    Thanks for the snippet. I take ends of balls of wool and knit them into tiny toys that kids love to play with.

  • Kathy Heare Watts says:

    I love to garden, and it is without chemicals. I enjoy growing the vegetables and canning them for my family. I try to share from our garden with our adult children and their families and even the neighbors where we live. I also have fruit trees.
    I only go to town about once a week and make it into multiple events. I sometimes even make me a list of where I need to go and plan my route so that I am not backtracting.
    My favorite past time is READING! and it is something I do ever single day. I own a Nook Color and a Kindle Fire. With nearly 5000 books between the two of them, I am still always looking for new and interesting authors.

  • Renee B says:

    Thanks for the tips. I would like to spend the day in the yard reading or taking a nature walk and drooling over the hunk pictured there. LOL We recycle and re-use as much as possible. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

    A lot of things people call green, were things I grew up with: lights off if no one is in the room, water off when brushing teeth, and I’ve always taken shorter showers. I also take reusable bags when I go shopping. It’s not a huge thing, but it feels like I’m doing something good.

  • Mary Jo says:

    I’m staying indoors reading today, as it is cold and rainy, but I have 2 trees waiting to be planted (holes are dug and waiting).

  • bn100 says:

    Oh… awkward lol. I’d love to know how that conversation goes ^_^ Thanks for sharing the excerpt. Happy Earth Day!

  • Shelley says:

    I live in the Pacific Northwest and we are the poster children of the “green” movement. You name it we do it, encourage it and figure out how to do it even “greener”. Happy Earth Day!

  • Belinda G says:

    Whao baby…Yielding for Him looks really hot! I look forward to reading it.

    As for Earth Day, I don’t do anything different than I usually do. I recycle and try hard to lessen my carbon footprint. I want the planet to be around for a little longer.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    That’s awesome, Lauren! We do a lot of walking, and when we go out to restaurants, we’ve started bringing our own containers for any leftovers :) It’s a little thing, but one we can manage :) Thanks for hopping!

    I actually plan on planting some roses and other flowers tomorrow and laying a nice flower bed.

    Great excerpt, can’t wait to read more. We try to do our part daily to reduce our carbon footprint so we don’t really do anything different for earth day.
