We don't do reviews or interviews. just virtual parties to promote your book!

As many of you may know, our beloved sister hostess SHARON DONOVAN, tragically passed away on 11th April 2012. We who knew her, loved her, and were inspired by her courage and determination to face head on whatever life threw at her. When she could no longer see to paint she turned to writing and showed her amazing talent in the Inspirational Romance and Romantic Suspense genres, and her story 'Charade Of Hearts' was awarded the coveted Predators and Editors Award in January 2011.

This Blog was a source of great delight to her, she was one of the founder hostesses and she contributed to the fun and silliness in her own original way, and was kind enough to let her unique creation, the hunky butler 'Oliver' join us for our Friday romp and prepare 'virtual breakfast' for the guests on the following morning. It's beyond hard to have to go on without her, but we know that she would have been the first to insist that 'the show must go on.' She is, and will always be with us in spirit.
Sharon, dear friend, we will never forget you.
The Author Roast and Toast is part of the legacy you left us. Let's raise a Toast to you as well as all our guests.

BIRTHDAY BEACH PARTY FOR HEIDI ANDERSON



"Wow, would you look at that!"

The hostesses all followMac’s gaze. The beach swarms with party goers. Bare-chested men and bikini clad young women mill about a bright white tent, gleaming in the late afternoon sun. A heaping fire pit sends up tendrils of deliciously scented steam.

"What a great idea for Heidi’s birthday party. Who doesn’t love a beach bash? We’re going to have such a good time," Lyn announces heading toward the tent.

The hostesses hurry to follow. "What are they cooking?" Patsy eyes the fire pit tended by several hunky guys. "It looks like seaweed. I’m not eating seaweed."


"Who cares what they’re cooking? Who can think of food with all the tanned male skin around here." Mary laughs and drags Patsy along.
 "Besides, you don’t eat the seaweed. They use it to cover the clams and potatoes and corn on the cob, to keep in the heat while everything cooks."

 "And lobster!" Mac exclaims, rubbing her hands together.

Patsy groans  "I don’t know how you can eat those things, Mac."

Mac shoots her a grin.

 "Hey, beach volleyball." Lyn smiles over her shoulder. "Who’s going to play me later?"

"Don’t like to sweat, remember?" Mac flutters her eyelashes.

Mary snorts and tugs at her bikini top. "Don’t look at me. I can’t run around wearing this thing. I’ll end up in jail for indecent exposure." She sighs when one of the hunky cooks sends her a wink. "Then again, a little jail time might be worth it."

"Ouch!"

All three turn to Patsy, who hops on one foot. She scowls at the remnant of a flowered sandal dangling from her toes "I stepped on a seashell and blew out my flip flop."

"Yeah, but you look great in that bikini. We all do." Lyn preens, shooting a smile at a group of guys tossing a football in the sand.

"It’s riding up my butt," Patsy grumbles, kicking off her ruined shoes.

"Does anyone see Oliver?" Mac stretches to scan the crowd. "Heidi said they’d be serving Sex on the Beach Between the  sheets, and Afternoon Delight. And you know no one can mix up a drink like Oliver."

"There he is." Mary wiggled her fingers at Oliver, looking cool and sexy, as usual. He stamds beside the makeshift bar with Heidi at his side. She grins and waves frantically in welcome. "And there’s the birthday girl."

"I hope you brought your appetites," Heidi says, as they approach.. "We’re about to uncover the feast."

“I brought mine, but first…"

A sudden commotion draws everyone’s attention to the cloth covered table several feet away. A gorgeously decorated, red velvet cake sits at the center. All four hostesses gasp seeing Nibbie, with Foster, Cuddles and Hampy riding on his back, loping toward the table. 

"The cake!" Heidi cries

Before the hostesses can act, Oliver steps to the side. With a simple raised brow, he moves directly into the dog’s path. Nibbie skids to a stop and sits, tumbling his unhappy riders to the sand.

"Nice trick, Oliver." Patsy glares at the sidekicks, who scurry off down the beach.

Heidi’s shoulders slump on a relieved sigh. "Oliver, you’re my hero, but if you don’t mind, I think I need a drink."

“Make that five drinks,” the hostesses say in unison.

They raise their glasses in a toast.

 Happy Birthday, Heidi, and congratulations on your book.  Wishing you many, many sales.



Judging by her pristine yard, Kat already knows J.J. is good with his hands—and she’s more than willing to put those hands to better use. The man fulfills her every lusty dream, and Kat never thought a sex-filled fling would change her life for the good. Too bad it can’t last…

Excerpt 

Kat’s heart melted. Her grandmother always said a man who loved his mother was a keeper. “You’re a sweet boy.”

Hurt fluttered over his face and his eyes hardened. Her hand flew to her mouth. She didn’t mean to insult him. “I’m so sorry, I know you’re not a boy. I felt that this morning.”

J.J. grabbed her by the hair, pulled Kat close to him and kissed her hard. White-hot passion rolled through her. Her lips parted. He delved in deeper. She heard a moan from somewhere far away. Was that from me?


When his tongue explored her mouth, Kat felt it all over her body. J.J.’s solid chest pressed against hers, proving he was one hundred percent man.

  1. Happy Birthday Heidi. Looks like I'm the early bird. LOL. The beach is much warmer than here today. I could already eat some of that lobster and yummy cake. Good thing Oliver saved the cake from Nibbie, with Foster, Cuddles and Hampy. LOL. Heidi can't wait to read another excerpt from your book.

  11. Happy Birthday, Heidi, and hurray on this release! Great way to celebrate - the Roast and Toast ladies really know how to throw a party. Now, what's this about sex on the beach? I'm assuming it means everyone is reading your sexy book while they cool their toes in the water. Behave now! Or not...

  12. *clicks her glass to Heidi's* Ahhhhh. Nothing like a little Sex on the Beach. Keep an eye on me, ladies. My mouth runs a bit out of control on these things. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, Oliver! Allison needs a glass. She'll never be the same again.

  14. Lyn winks at her sister hostess -
    LOL Mac dear, it's not your mouth we worry about, it's the fact you're inclined to wander off in something of a dream.....

    With all these hunks Heidi's attracting we'd hate you to get lost and we have to send out a search party!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Patsy - you look great in that tiger stripe bikini.

    Heidi, you chose an ideal location for your party, love it! And there's the fire pit to keep us warm if it gets chilly later on.

    (Eyes male talent walking by) Mind you I can think of other ways to keep warm. *giggle*!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Me? Wander off in a dream? Not gonna happen, at least not until I finish one of those yummy lobsters! Ooooo my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I want sex on the beach!!!!! Both kinds *she waggles her eyebrows*

    ReplyDelete
  18. Patsy! (Lyn pretends to be shocked)

    My my, what's the Roast coming too!
    Anyway, I'm going to have a little Afternoon Delight. Oliver - over here if you don't mind, old chap!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I look hot don't I! Mary strolls out of the water like Hallie Berrie on a 007 movie.
    Minus the knife of course. Look at all these sexy guys!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sex on the Beach is a drink. Not in my time. Well today things have certainly changed. Hey, I heard there was a nudie beach just over that rise there, anyone wanna peak with me. No cameras those naked hot guys would kill you. Just hope no grandfathers or grandmother types are nude today...
    What could it hurt??

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hey Heidi! Wanna come over to look with me?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi Mary - great now all four hostesses are together! I hope you're going to be a good girl Mary, especially as you DO look so hot!

    Wasn't that Ursula Andress coming out of the sea with a knife in her belt though? Not that I remember it of course, I just watch a lot of old movies on TV!

    Now you just be good - and Heidi might let you have a piece of her Birthday cake!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm In! "she waves histerically* Me! Me! I've never seen a nude beach! I ain't taking this cute little bikini off though! Maybe we should have several drinks to add to the courage level!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Marry, You know I will go any where with you specially if there are hot guys there.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Don't look at me, chickies. Been there, done that, with the nudie beach in the Caribbean and let me tell you, I'm still having nightmares! I'll just stay right here and ogle the hoties while you go check out the out of shape hornballs hoping for peek. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. The sign says under "thirty only this side of the beach." Still wanna stay Mac.
    Heidi is my buddy, she'd better save me a slice! or two...
    Plus, I was her first mentor and she has developed into one fine author, with lots of other help and hard work.
    I must say, Heidi gave herself one year to publish her first story. At the time I was hoping she'd have more patience. But, darned if she didn't do it! She has a will of iron and she does the Heidi shuffle well! It's a special fast walk in very high heels!!! She has the best shoes.
    Happy Birthday girl!

  27. Well back from the nude beach, had to save Lyn, she runs slow with her feet. She doesn't need flippers, but running...
    Anyhow, they told us if we were gonna stay we had to get nude, so we turned to run. When I saw Lyn way behind me, being grabbed, I ran back to help her.
    They were gonna tare off her bikini!
    Whew, we made it! My only question is Patsy, where is your bikini???
    Mac, you shoulda come, I saw Josh Halloway there. He almost made me get caught. I couldn't stop myself from gawking! I mean glancing...

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL Mary. I want to see pics before I commit.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, Marry you made my tear up. I couldn't have done it without you.

    When I whipped the tears from my eyes I saw a bunch of hot naked men over on the beach. They're waving at us to come over. What do you say we go check them out?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Phew, not sure I'm ready for a repeat performance, Heidi, after Mary dragged me away - I mean rescued me - just now. Mac, you going? No, You can't have these binoculars. I need them because...I've had to take my contacts out they were misting up and I can't see a thing without 'em!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hey, there's a spot in those bushes!
    Looky here ladies a perfect place to spy on those nude weight lifters.
    Funny what that kinda move does to a guys privates eh?
    Bad Mary HeHeHe

    ReplyDelete
  32. Well geesh look at all the fun I was missing. The cable guy was ok. At least he was not annoying. LOL. Now my net is working better and I even got a cable box which I have been asking forever for. Never had the sex on the beach drink. Of course I drink but; it sounds fun. LOL. I didn't miss another excerpt did I? Heidi hope you are having a fun birthday.

  35. Heidi writes hot! Fifty Shades move over. Well, forty shades? LOL!
    The difference is that Heidi's stories have a plot!

    ReplyDelete
  36. LOL Mary, I've not read '50 Shades' but I'll take your word for it, from what I've hear it is pretty plotless - so how come she's making all that money and we're not!

    Perhaps Heidi can prove that it's possible to write well, write hot, AND make money!

    Hi again Sue, glad you got your cable all sorted out!

    ReplyDelete
  37. If anyone can do it. Heidi can! She is a dynamo!
    And very sweet too...
    And she is married to one hot guy!!!
    He must be inspirational??? LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  38. (Pouting)Well darn it tell everybody to wear blindfolds them. ROFLMAO. I will just have to buy the book to find out what happens. Heh,heh. I do like spicey books too. Have not read 50 Shades either. My daughter liked the books.

  41. hey peeping Mary. if you're not careful, a sand crab is going to crawl into your suit.

    ReplyDelete
  42. No place for it to hide!!! Not in the suit Lyn gave me. If I feel it on my leg, I'll stop staring long enough to knock it off. But, not much longer then that. Looks like a bunch of firefighters out there from a calender I used to gawk at. My eyes are frozen. Come get me if I haven't stopped by morning! Nite everyone!

  43. OOOOO Fire fighters! I love fire fighters. I hope their shirtless.
