Happy Easter, GIVEAWAY! Rhonda Lee Carver

Hello, my good friends! How are you celebrating today? With friends and family? With a good book? Working? Watching a spectacular movie? Whatever it is that may have your attention, I want to thank you for letting me share the day with you.

I’m soooooo excited! Pride &Pleasure (The KNIGHT Brothers, Book 1) is releasing tomorrow. This series is full of loss, triumph, desire, tragedy and sexy brothers who will touch your life with their charming, sweet, mystical ways.



Avary Pine plays the cello like an angel.

One evening she is attacked outside of the theater after a performance and is left without the use of her hand.

Fast forward two years. After grueling physical therapy and living and breathing the cello, Avary is determined to become the musician she once was. Her music coach encourages her to start playing in the public again, but the mind doesn’t heal as fast as the body. Each time Avary closes her eyes she is filled with memories of the attack.

Living with her sister, out of money and in a career rut, Avary accepts an offer to play at a dinner party at the illustrious Knight Estate. Baby steps back into the musical world didn’t include a luxurious weekend at a vineyard, but does she have a choice?

Reserved, intimidating, rich Victor Knight reluctantly invites unworldly, mousy Avary to his estate–but he’s in for a shock. Nothing about her is mousy. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a sweet, free-spirited cellist, but why can’t he resist? She cramps his bachelor lifestyle, and he’s never been happier. But he can’t lose someone again…

Can they leave the baggage at the door and learn to trust? Or will their past poison their future?


“I have half a mind to strip you naked and bend you over my knee.” He took a tendril of her hair and wrapped it around his finger. “A good swat on that nice ass would do you a bit of good.”

She exhaled. “How dare you!”

He let the wisp of hair drop. “How dare I? Come now, sweetheart. You can’t hide the glint of curiosity filling your pale blues. I think it’s you who can’t decide if you’re the innocent cellist or the naughty musician. Admit the truth. You’d like my touch on your bottom, and other delicate places.” He subtly ran his fingers down her bare arm and clasped her slender wrist.  “I’d like to run my fingers over every soft curve and explore you with my lips and tongue.” He lifted his hand, brushing his fingers along her cheek, not caring if people saw. “I’d spank you into submission and you’d beg me for more.”

“Never,” her voice trembled, but she leaned into him.

“Don’t worry, sweet Avary. I’d never physically hurt you, in bed or out. I only offer you pleasure. I offer you heaven.” She jerked back and some of the wine sloshed out over the rim of her glass, landing on her fingers. “I’d like to lick the wine from your hand but imagine the rumors. I don’t want to cause too much of a stir, considering the evidence of my attraction for you is already obvious by the tenting of my slacks.”

“You’re—you’re…” Her lashes came down to sweep across the top of her cheeks.

“What, baby? Spit it out. Unless you want me to forego propriety and suckle your fingers amongst all of these fine people.”

Her cheeks were almost as colorful as the wine in her glass. She opened her mouth but a loud ding made her snap it close.

“Saved by the bell.” He smiled and saluted her with his glass. Seeing her flush only made him want her more.

Bling Giveaway! Rhonda Lee Carver

I’m feeling a little sentimental this evening. Okay…I’ll admit it…I’m in tears. My daughter went to her first homecoming dance tonight. I walked her into the school, took pictures, and watched her walk away. I felt like I was reliving the first day of school  when she started kindergarten. No worries, I held my tears back on that monumental day, and today, until I reached the car. I wonder why I’m a blubbering fool? I also found myself teary-eyed when I wrote Resisting Pressure (Book 5, Rhinestone Cowgirls). I love these sisters. Each Stones is loosely created based on my dearest friends–minus details here and there. I wouldn’t give away any secrets. Resisting Pressure, Violet and Keefer, is an amazing story of life and love after baggage–or with baggage.  I hope you’ll love their story as much as I did writing it.


Who doesn’t love bling? In celebration of the release of Resisting Pressure, I’m having a 3-day bling giveaway. I want to adorn you with these beauties, so here’s what you must do…

Resisting Pressure–Amazon   Be prepared to fall in love!


Here’s a treat for you. A short excerpt:

He turned and watched Violet slip from the cowboy boots. “So again, tell me how you ended up with boots. What happened to the heels?” He thought this should be good.

She grinned. “I ran into Edie in the bathroom and she said she liked my heels. So I exchanged them for her boots.”

He rubbed his jaw, his beard rasped loudly. “Do you do this often? Exchange something if someone likes what you have on?”

“Never before with a stranger, except for my sisters of course. Growing up was pretty cool having three sisters with awesome style. We traded all of the time. So tell me, did you know that Edie is…”

“With Buck? I thought it was pretty obvious. You didn’t?”

“Totally missed it. Until she told me.”

“You didn’t see the looks they shared?”

“No. I was oblivious. She was very appreciative for the heels and I was glad I made her smile. She even kissed me.”

“Yeah—huh?” He turned rock solid in a  flash. “She kissed you?”

“She did. In the bathroom. On the cheek. As a thank you for the heels.”

Innocent kiss or not, his cock responded like a jackhammer. He needed to take a breather or he was going to spew even before he got his jeans off. He was going to have sex with Violet Stone. Granted, it wasn’t what he was expecting, a one night rumble, but she had a sinful body with curves that deserved a man’s attention. Hair that hung long, he could only imagine how the silken curtain would feel against his bare skin. Goosebumps popped out over his flesh with the mere thought.

Tonight he would sink his body deep into hers and find a release that had been building since the first time he’d laid eyes on her.

He’d have to wrap his brain around the fact that their acquaintance went no further than tonight. He could handle that, he had no choice. He knew all too well how women like Violet could be, or what they needed. She didn’t want a man that was on a new path, finding his way. She wanted someone who was established, had money to buy her things. Hell, he couldn’t deny that she deserved a man that treated her like a princess, but he was juggling a lot at the moment.

He pushed the dismal thoughts from his brain. Now was not the time for thinking. He had a beautiful woman standing before him.

She sashayed across the room until they were close, her tongue sweeping out along her lips, making his gut tighten.  “I’ve been wanting your kiss.” Her voice had a tiny quake in it and he could see by the trembling in her bottom lip how nervous she was. They both knew they were on the precipice of something great that was about to happen.

“You can have as many as you want,” he told her in a voice that expressed the unsettling of his nerves. “I have to admit I’m feeling guilty.”

“For what?”

“For the first time in my life, I’m feeling guilty for having a one night stand.” He admitted easily. “Are you sure—”

She touched his mouth with the tip of her fingers and then slid them to his jaw. “No words are needed. I know you aren’t a womanizer and you should know that I don’t normally jump into things. Tonight, I want us to enjoy each other, enjoy this unexplained lure drawing us together.”

Bewitching the Alpha Out Now + GIVEAWAY-TALINA PERKINS

Bewitching the Alpha it out and ready for your hot little hands! I’m so happy for you to meet my über sexy alpha shifter, Julian. Don’t tell anyone, but he’s my favorite of all the shifters from the series. He’s damaged, hurt, and royally pissed, but has a tender side that speaks to a woman! Especially Ember, the witch with a not so legal plan to win back her man. She’s ready to help him heal, but she has a small problem with said plan. First, she’s the one that hurt him, not good. And secondly, her truth spell calls for a dragon’s and that never ends well. Their story is growly, sexy and filled with so much emotion you can’t help but want them to have a HEA! 😉

If you signed up for my newsletter, you have the first chapter as a special excerpt already waiting for you in your inbox. Fingers crossed it didn’t land in your spam!

In celebration of my new release, I’m throwing a RELEASE DAY GIVEAWAY that lasts through tomorrow! To enter skip over to my Facebook page and give the giveaway post a comment and a like and you’re done! Or, do you prefer Instagram? The giveaway is live there too on my account. Repost/ like for extra points! Open internationally. Two winners will be picked and announced this Saturday!


The Hex My Heart series is fabulous for satisfying your craving for a hot alpha shifter while on the go or for a fix right before bedtime.

Sometimes breaking the rules is the only way…

Forced out of the Royal High Council of Witches and shunned by her family for mating Julian, a wolf shifter, Ember is given an ultimatum: leave Sweet Briar Hollow, or her whole family pays the ultimate price for her sins.

She should have let them take their magickal powers.

Almost a year later, Ember is back and no amount of magick or law will stop the once sweet and calm witch from reclaiming her mate. With a plan in place and a devil-may-care take on the world, only one thing can stop her. Julian. Armed with a drop of dragon’s blood and an illegal truth spell, Ember has until the stroke of midnight on the winter solstice to mend their bond and forge a new future with her shifter. But when the truth comes to light can he forgive her for leaving him? Or will her spell cast them farther apart?

Just one little problem with her charm she didn’t count on… a very pissed off and lusty half-naked alpha shifter and the full moon.

Not what she expected. Honestly. Well, maybe she did. Either way, if her truth spell turned and bit her in the rump, she’d need more than her magick to help her win back her alpha. All’s fair in the world of magick and love.

Hex My Heart, a werewolf erotic series, follows five coven sisters as they find true love through their misadventures with love spells gone wrong with a botched hex or two. Be warned, this series is smokin’ hot!

Within the Cocoon of Silence…


The silence is loud if you’re listening.

… is when the magic comes to life.

There are days when my mind is quiet and others when the words flow with no end in sight. Constant ramblings, snippets of story lines, dialogue, scene ideas, and what have you.

Today, though, has been a hushed day with little to no extra chatter. The normal built-in to-do list is on autopilot with little to no luck of turning it off, but from there, the home front is still. Calm even.

Come to think of it, this entire week has been quiet, with no rush to click open Facebook with some sort of sassy comment or quick words of encouragement I like to share at times. At first, I was worried. Worried because the words were few and I am in the middle of a story. A scary place to have a loss of words.

However, during the stillness of this morning, before the children roused and started their daily weekend activities, something occurred to me. It’s okay NOT to have something to say all the time. It’s okay to give myself the time to turn reflective and let the daily humdrum fade away. You know what I’m talking about? That special ‘you’ time?

What if this is the calm before the storm? The stolen time before all hell breaks loose and I have so much to say there won’t be enough time in the day to get it all out of my head? I crave those days, truly. But what am I to learn when the words slow? Should I force them or take a beat and let the silence speak?

In the last few days I’ve come to realize my muse is sneaky and clever, willing to give me my answers, if I only listen. Letting the thoughts, ideas and words accumulate, marinate if you will, is just as powerful as typing away word after word. I discovered this recently when my muse woke me from a dead sleep and gave me exactly what I needed to continue a scene. Perplexing and mind opening how it took the wee hours of the morning for my mind to be quiet enough to find what I needed.

In just a few hours I begin two long projects that I have no doubt will consume my every thought for the next four months. These projects have weighed on my mind for the last year and a half. My muse knows this and I suspect is preparing for the heavy work load, hoarding the creative energy until it’s time to let it overflow and pour onto the page.

For now I must embrace the quiet, enjoy the stillness, and let my mind harness the creativeness the universe is providing. My muse is smart enough to listen.

I just need to accept the quiet as a gift and sit back, ready for what is to come.

In the mean time, tell me what you do when the silence comes? Do you like to disconnect and relax with a good book? Take to writing in a journal maybe? Something I would love to pick up as a habit, by the way. Or do you just settle in for a good long ‘you’ time?

***Leave a comment with your answer and I’ll pick two winners for a Kindle copy of any title on my back list. Don’t forget to leave your email addy! AND I’ve extended my two day weekly giveaway so that everyone here can join in at this link HERE.***

Thought I would share a little funny story from last xmas today.

So last year after all our shopping had been done, and I went over budget, my husband made another huge purchase. He bought a beer machine…I kid you not. I wasn’t at all amused because he normally thinks this shite through, but this time, Oooooh no. He just had to have it.

The hubster felt sooo bad that he gave me free reign to make a personal purchase if I wanted to. I shrugged and said okay, not really sure if there was anything I needed. Then I got thinking the man hadn’t been shocked in a while so I did make a purchase. When he asked what I bought, I simply said he’d have to wait until the package came in.

So you can imagine to his horror when I opened up the package he just about fell over. Can I just say how much fun it was to watch the myriad of emotions splashing across his face.

Can you guess what I bought?

What’s the kinkiest thing you’ve purchased for Christmas?

The first person to guess correctly will win a $10 Amazon eGift Certificate.

Turkey Talk + Recipe & Sexy Siesta Giveaway!

In and amongst the writing and everything that goes along with that gig, the family and I are getting ready for Turkey Day. We’re big on tradition since it’s only the husband and I here to pass on family traditions to the children so we take it big. Big meal, big game time, and a big dessert to end it on. I admit we almost passed on celebrating this holiday when the kids were born. Since we live in a country where Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated we briefly considered skipping it all together. But that didn’t last. We quickly decided that it was too much a part of our upbringing to leave it out of their lives.

Plus, we like turkey too much!

One tradition we hold dear to our hearts is that of reconnecting as a family on the big day by everyone having a turn in dressing the main course—Mr. Butterball! I have a top secret Cuban sofrito recipe (seriously top secret people!) that we use in basing the turkey first. After that is done, the girls stuff onions in small slits made in the meat and then I top it off with a special blend of butter, soy sauce, and freshly squeezed orange juice. My mouth is just watering thinking about the delicious meat. And the smell… nothing short of divine! And if there’s one thing my kids will take away from this it’s how to work as a team and never suffer through a dry turkey meal. 🙂

Here’s our turkey from last year. Juicy, huh? 😉


We also leave this time of year for the pumpkin pie. I usually undertake this chore, but this year my eldest daughter is old enough to take on the task of making everything from scratch instead of store bought all on her own. Her big dream is one day being a master chef so, according to her, she needs the confidence. Can’t argue with that reason, so this I pass over the dessert apron to her. I’ll keep you posted with pictures after the holiday.

The menu doesn’t stop there. Since my husband is Cuban we like to mix up the more American traditional menu with some Latin spice. Every year I make a huge pot of moros y cristianos which is a dish of black beans a white rice mixed with herbs and spices. In fact, I have the recipe here for the taking if you’d like to give it a try this year. It’s a great dish to take to any gathering and easy to make if you know how to cook rice.

Moros y Cristianos

Ingredients for the back beans

1/2 pound of black beans (two cups if using canned beans)

1 medium onion

1 green bell pepper

6 sweet peppers (ají dulce or cubanelle pepper)

1 ham hock (optional)


Preparation of the the beans

  1. Rinse and pick the beans beans.
  2. In a pot with 2 1/2 quarts of water, put the beans onion, bell pepper, sweet peppers and ham hock. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 hours.
  3. Drain the beans and reserve 4 cups of the liquid. Discard vegetables and bones.


Ingredients for the dish

2 cups of rice

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1/4 pound of slab bacon diced

1 1/4 cup finely chopped medium onion

1 cup of green bell pepper, seeded, deveined, minced

1 teaspoon of ground cumin

1 teaspoon of dried oregano

1 bay leaf

1 tablespoon of white vinegar

1 tablespoon of dry sherry

2 teaspoons of salt


  1. Put the rice in a colander and let the water run until it runs clear. Drain.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy pan and add the bacon. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the onion, pepper, cumin, oregano and bay leaf and sauté until onion wilts, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the rice and stir. Add the black beans and the reserved liquid. Add the vinegar, sherry and salt. Cook uncovered until the liquid has been almost completely absorbed and small crater have formed on the surface.
  5. Stir with a fork and reduce the heat to low and cook covered for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and let stand, uncovered, at least 10 minutes before serving.

Makes 8 servings
