The heroines of my 4-book series call themselves the Awesome Foursome. They're four twenty-something friends who laugh, cry, bond — and find their own very sexy romances! A couple of months ago they got their very own logo, and now it's time they found that very special martini deserving of the title, "The Awesome Foursome Martini."
Do you have a fantastic martini recipe? Pop over to my site at http://www.susanlyons.ca/ and enter my contest (it runs until the end of July).
The winner will get a Touch Me gift basket containing an autographed advance reading copy of Touch Me (Ann’s book, the 3rd in the series, coming out in September), chocolates, massage lotion, bath goodies, scented candles and a deck of "52 Weeks of Romance" cards. Two runners-up will also receive an autographed advance reading copy of Touch Me. (And I'll post the winning recipes on my website, so we can all enjoy them!)
As for how the contest will be judged... Well, the Foursome has delegated me to do their taste-testing (tough life being a writer!), and I’ll rope in a bunch of my own friends to help me out (and a tough life being a friend of a writer!) — and find a cooperative (not to mention hot) bartender to do the mixing for us. Mmm, I can't wait!
On Wednesday June 27, I'll have an interview posted over at: http://amysmith98.blogspot.com/
I'll be hanging around through the day to answer some reader questions. On Thursday morning Amy and I will choose a random winner with a great question for a book give away. The winner will receive my series launch title: Midnight Confessions The second in the series was a June release. (MC II)
In August, the ghost stories continue when Belle, the ghost madam of Perdition House, meddles with Jake McKay a carpenter/contractor in my novella Rock Solid in the BUILT anthology. Belle just can't give up messing with the living.
BUILT is affectionately thought of as men in tool belts. And don't we love 'em!
Thanks for stopping by...and if you're around on Wednesday, please check out the interview and feel free to ask whatever comes to mind.
The Frontiers in Writing conference, as hosted by the Panhandle Professional Writer's group was a total blast. Though I only got to attend one day, I really had fun. This was my first conference ever, and my first going out and promoting my book in a public venue outside a bookstore. I got to meet a lot of people and even sold a few books >:)
Even better, I got to meet my fabulous editor, Hilary Sares. The calm graceful lady on the right is Hilary. The idiot grinning on the left if yours truly. I am smiling like a monkey eating poo because I'd just found out Sins of the Night, my second Kynn book, got a really hot cover!! I hope to be able to share it soon!

Because of deadlines I've been pretty quiet. However, I can now announce that the page proofs of Sins of the Flesh ( Oct '07) are done--and I finished and turned over the manuscript for the second Kynn book, Sins of the Night (April '08). Now that I can rest a bit, I wanted to share a snip of a wonderful review for Flesh and the Devil:
Flesh and the Devil, by Devyn Quinn, comes from Aphrodisia’s Erotic Romance range of titles. Please note, just because it says “erotic romance” on the cover that does not mean the content is tame or unerotic. Devyn Quinn is a mistress of paranormal penmanship and a delightful deviant in the art of erotica. Here she presents a neatly told tale that blends romance and the paranormal. But it is far from tame and never unerotic. Flesh and the Devil smoulders with flames that could have come straight from Hell.
The rest of the review can be found on the Erotica Revealed website.
As for June 9th, I'll be attending the PPW conference in Amarillo, TX. My Kensington editor, Hilary Sares, will be there. I'm dying to meet her. I promise to try and snap some pix to share! I'll also be doing a booksigning with several other authors, so hope to have a lot of fun!
In this morning's mail I found my copy of RT Book Reviews, and in it was a review of THE SUPPLICANT, by August release. Kristi Ahlers gave it four stars! Yey! Noelle Mack, Kate Douglas, and an anthology with Sunny, Jami Alden and Valerie Martinez also fared very well. Kensington must be very pleased with us today!
Here is the review:
Erotic Romance (Fantasy) THE SUPPLICANT Lucinda Betts 4 Stars (yey!)
Betts once again brings to life her incredible imaingination and blends it together with a fantastical make-believe world and interesting and dynamic characters. Sureya and Kalief are strong in their own ways, and yet they complement each other. Sureya's awakening to her sensual self makes this an explicit read. Fans of the fantasy/erotic genre will be very pleased with this offering.
Summary: Sureya is a humble servant girl and nanny to a family she loves. But when the second sun appears in the sky this young girl's life is going to change in ways she never imagined. It is up to her, as the Supplicant, to save a kingdom and its ruler. To gain her power, she must enter the world of physical pleasure, and the only man who can satisfy her is King Kalief. Together they reach the heights of pleasure, while facing untold danger.
