Tuesday Temptation - Coupling

Have you seen this show?  This is a "new" old show to me.  Coupling ran from 2000 - 2004 on the BBC and it is fabulously funny and a tempting thirty minutes of sassy, sexy humor.  If you have a chance, check out an episode or might tempt you as well.  :)

Titillating Tuesday

Check out some of the tempting and titillating posts going on over at Shapeshifter Seductions.  A new town has been born on our blog by the name of Talbot's Peak and our fabulous authors have filled the town with some of the most fascinating of characters. 

Stop by and give it your own peek.  :)


~Burgess let the plane empty out before prying his six foot four frame out of the tortuously uncomfortable airline seat. He had almost flown in animal form for this very reason. As a penguin, he was only sixteen inches tall, weighting in at just over two pounds. As a human, he was built like an Olympic swimmer with massive shoulders and long limbs.  Rebecca L. Gillan~

~Marissa turned, just in time to catch a face full of water balloon. It drenched her hair, skin and clothes. The man standing upright in the convertible hooted in triumph. The car sped off with the man still howling like a maniac.  Pat Cunningham~

~Hidden by the trunk of a tall pine tree, he’d stalked her with his predator’s gaze as she playfully raced in circles. With utter joy, she threw her fluffy, yet sleek feline body forward, tumbling and rolling on the thin carpet of leaves and snow. Springing high, she batted at the flurry of snowflakes, her pale fur beautiful against the forest backdrop.  Savanna Kougar~

~A streak of blue, a dark and gorgeous blue belonging to an equally, if not more gorgeous man, passed by her. He too appeared to be slowed by the tourists and families headed for the door, and thankfully so, because he had exactly what she needed—six foot something of obvious muscle and no lovely lady on his arm.  Serena Shay~

~Josh leaned his elbows on the bar, burying his face in his hands. He blinked, trying to not give into the tears stinging his eyes. Frustration and angst worked intricate knots and lattice arrays in and out of his gut and up into his heart.  Solara Gordon~

More Snow...

The weather guys are predicting another 6-10 inches of snow for our area today.  This on top of the 17 inches we got a couple of weekends back, which has not melted even one little iota.  Sheesh, where the heck are we going to put it all?

Anyone know of a really nice, warm climate I can move too??  ;)

Have a great Monday!
