Yeah, Monday again. I thought I’d have more time today but Ms. M stole my driver’s license and I must go and deal with a replacement, my middle kiddo has an eye infection and I had to pick up medication for my oldest who is going to his grandparents for several weeks. So I’m running around and dealing with stuff and doing laundry and not getting as much writing done as I’d like although I am consistently putting out 3K words a day, which is very nice.

I got two more excellent reviews of Sudden Desire today!

4 1/2 stars from Contessa at Romance Junkies: Lauren Dane has crafted a magnificent and highly erotic summer-time fun read with SUDDEN DESIRE. My attention was instantly absorbed from the start with Tess’s explosive and much deserved actions towards Trevor. Here is a woman after my own heart. A person can only be pushed so far before she/he comes out fighting. I can certainly say that I would not have taken that much attitude for as long as Tess did. Trevor needed to be knocked down a peg or two. But, what surprised me the most was how much my attitude changed toward Trevor once he turned on his charm – no wonder he was so popular with the ladies. The sexual encounters between Tess and Trevor were scorching-hot and deliciously passionate. SUDDEN DESIRE is a great, short novel to enjoy on a hot summer night.

And 4 cups from Susan at Coffeetime Romance: Ms. Dane is one of my favorite authors and this terrific story is another example of why I enjoy her work so much. The characters are fascinating and easily believable. I like a good strong heroine and Tess is definitely that. I recommend Sudden Desire to anyone who likes a good solid story with plenty of smoking hot sex.

Not a bad way to start the week, eh?

Okay, I think I’ll be done with Taking Chase by the end of the month! Yay! Then on to Battlefront, which I hope to have done by the end of August and then it’s on to some stuff I’m working on for NY – a romantic suspense I’m targeting at Blaze and something I may target at the new Nocturne line. Cause I’m just gonna keep hitting until someone bites!

How was everyone’s weekend?

    I think it’s great that you consistently get those 3K words out per day no matter what, Lauren. That’s true dedication and discipline! Those are some really terrific reviews for Sudden Desire–especially the two from JERR (it’s hard to get those stars from them). Congrats!

    I read your post about having a book out every 4-6 weeks. Wow–you’re certainly prolific and definitely on a roll. I have no doubt that NY is gonna bite, and soon! 😀
