Blurb:

Love is all you need ... Really?  Tell that to her unattended lady-boner.  Sure, she and her husband had a love so strong it shoulder the weight of children, careers, in-laws, and out-laws, but the zing of excitement had grown into comfortable expectation.



He knew things had gone to hell in handcuffs. Work choked him on files and felons. Home's honey-do lists weren't much better, because nowhere on the to-do list did it say, "wife."

They had love, but how did they get back to lust?

With a little bit of Anticipation...

Anticipation contains two sizzling ten-thousand word short stories. In Megan Mitcham's story "Climax," a busty - and brainy- redhead arrests her police-chief husband and shows him exactly what she's had to do to get by without him for the last two months.  In Lindsay Cross's story "Need," a work-from-home mom pushed to the brink pushes back, revealing her un-sated desire and forcing Dominant to reestablish his role.

And now, some thoughts from the author :



BAD BETTI’S CARDINAL RULES OF WOMANHOOD 

When I came up with the idea for Bettina Blanchard (Boudreaux), I wanted a strong, independent woman who lived her life by her own rules. I had no idea that those rules would be quite so literal. Nor did I realize that those rules would end up being such a big part of a later book (coming in October). But they were, and they are and the positive feedback I’ve gotten on them from readers makes me think that they should be shared. The key here is, at least in the fictional world of Bluebonnet, if you find yourself breaking most of these rules (for a man), then you should probably marry him. :D

So here they are (and some need no explanation):

1. Never sleep with a boy from Bluebonnet
2. Be discreet – Betti’s mother was the town drunk.
3. Have fun – because life is short
4. Keep it Light – because life is short! Don’t let yourself get all tangled up over a man
5. Women in love do stupid things – don’t be stupid but if you are, forgive yourself, course correct and move on.
6. Be Prepared – for a wide variety of things, including protected sex!
7. If you can’t go to his place, don’t let him sleep in your bed.
8. Never beg, whine or in any way, cling – See rules 3 and 4
9. Don’t nag – you can be a b*tch at any given time. That’s a woman’s divine right but state your case and move on
10. Don’t ask questions you don’t know the answer to – kind of like being a lawyer
11. Your best girlfriend is worth her weight in ice cream (Even if she laughs at you for taking four pregnancy tests) – this needs no explanation
12. Never mix business with pleasure
13. Good sex is important and while we’re at it, size does matter
14. Never Ever, under any circumstances, say the “L” word during sex
15. Love doesn’t equal happiness

So what are some of your favorite “rules” or words of wisdom that you live by and/or have shared??
