Hot Autumn Nights Blog Hop

What makes a Hot Autumn Night?

As the weather cools in the Northeast US, we finally get a chance to build that long awaited fire in the fireplace.  Stretch me out on the rug in front of it and let me enjoy the flames licking at my skin.  Let the mysterious flickers swirl with unpredictable revelry around the room. The first fire makes me forget all about how much I like a cool glass of white wine on the back deck after a scorching summer day.  Now, I’ll swirl liquid garnet in my over-sized goblet and cherish the way it burns so good in my throat.  This is Fall.  The slight note of smoke in the air mixed with fruity red wine.  A silk robe falling off my shoulder as the heat of the fire warms.  A flirtatious eyebrow raised in a rhetorical question: Do I want some company?  

Stoke the fire, sweetheart and be my guest.

As an author of erotica and erotic romance I've written two stories set during the season of autumn.  Give Thanksgiving new meaning and read an excerpt of a scintillating first time lesbian experience in For the Good posted in my Free Reads section until Dec. 2 (Published in Wanton Women, Xcite Books 2011) 

By Surprise, a romance between a committed gay couple and the female childhood friend of one partner.  The garden is waning in Nicholas and Paxton’s back yard, but Jodi brings something fresh and new to their relationship.  By Surprise is my bestselling book from Etopia Press. Enter to win a free copy of By Surprise here!  Good luck and thanks for hopping by.

I'll freely admit that autumn is not my favorite season because it's too short and the winter is too long. I do, however, love to curl up with my fleece blanket and a good book.

It's the time I prepare for my winter hibernation. I hate the cold so I have to order firewood, fill the nook and make sure I have plenty of batteries. Now it's time to dream of spring.

Not sure on what I would think to make autumn hot. I like spending a quiet time at home, without hubby and the kids asleep to focus on writing OR reading

My ideal for an autumn night, in my lounge chair with a thow. My favorite dog on my lap. And finally, a book in my hand. Ahh heaven.

Now with my sweetie, suggling on the couch and laughter. Not only is it a turn on, it's hot! Amazon, kindle ebook.

On the East Coast of the United States it is currently 65 degrees. Way to warm for autumn. I can't bake all kinds of yummy goodness because it's too warm to heat the whole house.

A hot romance is great for those cool autumn nights...

A hot romantic night for me is either sitting by the fire snuggling under a throw and just talking; or snuggling and watching a so called chick flick, as long as you are with the one you love...ok, you manly with! :-)

Thanks for the opportunity to meet new authors and add to my out of control TBR list.

The fireplace is a must, must have. Warm and toasty enough to have very little on. Oh, does hubby like that!

Thanks for all of your great comments. Keep them coming! I'll do the same for my characters ;)

I'm in the South so HOT AUTUMN NIGHTS can be a fact of life. I'm usually cranky, waiting for the long summer heat & humidity to break and for my favorite time of year to come: "sweater weather"! I'd much rather the "hot" come from a steamy book or some cocoa than from actual temperatures.

What makes Autumn hot for me is all of these steamy reads that you lovely authors keep writing! ;)
I loved the post!
Thank you for the chance to read one of your stories, Alyssa.

Me personally I enjoy snuggling up in a blanket with cup of herbal tea and good book but as the holidays approach us (rather quickly in my opinion)I find myself in the kitchen baking more..

Happy Holidays
