Book Spotlight: Sexing Up the Spy by Tina Holland @haveubeenaughty #romcom #contemporaryromance

Title:  Sexing Up The Spy
Series:  Caulfield Cowboys Prequel
Author:  Tina Holland
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy
Release Date:  April 2, 2019

Lexi Andrews keeps her erotic writing a secret but she'll gladly risk exposure for the chance to work with “Killer” spy creator Jake Stone. While Jake is hesitant to work with
anyone, he'll meet Lexi to appease his female fans. They hatch a plan to rehearse the love scenes and give Jake's novel realism.

But what starts out as an experiment soon takes on a life of its own. Jake's deadline doesn't seem as pressing as Lexi's lovely body. Can Jake and Lexi keep their hands off each other long enough to “Sex up the Spy”?




“Lexi, are you in there!”

A muffled voice came through her dreams. Lexi’s head screamed and she was
damn uncomfortable, “Go away,” Who was at the door this late? Sounded like Jake,

“Jake, come back tomorrow!” She shouted back. Lexi rolled over. The sun blinded her.

Oh, crap! Sunlight!

She shot up like a springboard.

“I’ll be right there!” She fell to the floor with a loud thud trying to run to the door.
While she slept, Lexi’s usual thrashing tangled her up in the afghan. “Are you okay?”
Jake called from the other side.

“Fine.” She started to pull the afghan off her feet, but the knots were stuck through
her fishnets. Great, just great. She managed to raise herself up and shuffle to the door
like a penguin. She threw the door open, but the action propelled her forward. Lexi lost
her balance and collapsed once again.


Jake looked down at Lexi sprawled on the floor, “Are you alright?” he lowered
himself to help Lexi get to her feet.

“Sorry, I’m all tangled. The knots of the afghan got caught up in my fishnets.”

“Why are you still wearing last night’s clothes?”

Lexi turned red, “I wanted to get some cleaning done before you came over. Guess I
fell asleep.” She teetered forward, while motioning her hand around the house. Jake
caught her along her back and under her knees, lifting her against his chest.

“Where do you want to go?”

“The bedroom.”

“Lexi, I do love your line of thought.” He winked at her.

“I need to shower and change, of course,” she hit his chest playfully, “Go that way,”
Lexi pointed to the opposite wall. Jake started in the direction, “Turn right.”

Jake took in the surroundings of the room, soft green walls, dark brown wood
furniture, and sheer off-white curtains. It suited Lexi and more to the point, him. He could
seduce her in this room. At least it wasn’t pink with stuffed animals everywhere. He
shuddered remembering his first time with his high-school sweetheart, Fran Something.

Jake never was good at names.

“Do you need anything else?” Jake asked with anticipation, depositing Lexi on the

“I don’t think so.”

“Alright, I’ll go wait in the living room.”


Jake no sooner closed the door than a loud THUMP came from the other side of it,

“Are you okay?” he peeked back into Lexi’s bedroom.

Lexi was face-first on the floor trying to get back up. She looked like a bright
caterpillar inching its way along the wooden floor. “It seems I need help taking off these
stockings,” she said, without even looking up.

Jake smiled wide. “My pleasure.” He helped Lexi back up onto the bed and looked
into her sea-green eyes. She seemed to stare at him mesmerized, mouth agape. Lexi
darted her pink tongue out to lick her lips. Jake let out a guttural exhale.

“The afghan,” she spoke at last.

“Of course.” Jake looked down at her black stockings and wondered how to
accomplish the task at hand without seducing Lexi. Why not seduce her? It was good
practice, and really, what was the worst that could happen? She might say ‘no’. Jake
could live with a ‘no’. He wondered if he would regret not touching her.

Characters I Don't Want to Meet #L&SReviews #bloghop

There's probably a long list of baddies that I would really not like to meet, but to be honest, the first one that I think of that I never, ever, ever, ever want to meet is Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. 

She might not appear as frightening as let's say, Lord Voldemort, but she keeps her evil hidden behind a charming smile and I think that's more terrifying than anything else. 

Plus, I really hate to admit it, but she reminds me of someone I knew in real life. Someone who made all the appearances of being a sweet, lovely grandmotherly type person to those people in public, but to her family, mainly her husband and kids when they were growing up, she was an absolute nightmare. It's scary that people like this can exist in real life. So, yeah, I'll pass on meeting Dolores.

Also, while I'm thinking of it, Bellatrix LeStrange is crazy scary, too. I don't think I'd like to meet her either. She was more frightening than even Lord Voldemort. She also killed one of my favorite Harry Potter characters. I can't ever forgive her for that one.

When Writers Have Wishes #IWSG #writing

The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. 
The Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! 
IWSG Asks: If you could use a wish to help you write just one scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? 

If authors had access to a genie in a magic lamp, the wish would be for the next big idea that will sell millions. Something along the lines of selling books as popular as Harry Potter.

This question is more challenging. Help with just one scene or one chapter?

The method I use to write is part panster, part plotter. I have an idea and I write everything I know about it. Whether that includes characters, setting, plot, goals, action pieces, love scenes, whatever. It's always different with each book. Usually, I'll have most of the parts to the story together before I begin. Those missing bits will work out while I write the story. That's the fun of writing and it's also the hardest because inevitably there's always a part when I have to ask the question I absolutely dread...

What happens next?

I don't know.

I'm only the author. I'm simply writing down the images and dialogue taking place in my head. It's not like I'm deciding on what happens. I'm just a conduit that the Universe or characters or whoever is using to tell stories. They pop into my head and I record them to the best of my ability.

I don't make any decisions about what happens. That's out of my control. The characters are telling these stories, not me.

Unfortunately, I've set aside quite a few stories because I didn't know the answer to...what happens next?

Not forever.

Otherwise, I'd never have anything published! But I set them aside to cook a little. I need time for the Universe to send my brain the answer. Eventually, something pops in there. I might be cutting the grass, shoveling snow, taking a walk, taking a shower or even wandering the isles at the grocery store when suddenly an image or a thought or a line of dialogue will shock me into standing still and gasping aloud, "That's it!"

I've probably startled many customers into thinking I'm a bit looney tunes.

And each story is different.

Typically, I often get stuck on endings. I have brilliant beginnings and the characters have it tough throughout the story until the bitter end. How will they get out of the pickle they've found themselves in? How will they end up happily-ever-after. (I write romances, in case you're new here.)

Hell, if I know.

Sometimes it's a character's viewpoint where I get stuck. I have a WIP that is sitting on the shelf because I don't know what the heroine's brother is going to do. He's involved in the plot. I don't know what or how he does it, but he needs to end up at that exact moment, at that exact spot to save his sister. The book is completely written except for that one single scene.

I have a shapeshifter story that is waiting for an ending. Those poor lovers are torn apart at the moment and I haven't a clue as how they're getting back together.

In The Wolf's Bride, the story included in the upcoming Guardian: A Limited Edition Collection of Wolf Shifters, the heroine's occupation troubled me. I couldn't figure out why Madeline was doing the things that she did until I realized that, no, she wasn't a simple governess after all, but something so much more. I had the whole story figured out except for that piece.

In The Witch and the Vampire, the beginning was too similar to what happened in the prequel, The Witch and the Wolf, with both heroine's struggling through a blizzard to get to the hero's houses. Suddenly, in a flash of inspiration, I realized Melora Merriweather's carriage overturned from the icy roads and the hero had to save her, not meet her calmly at the door to his house.

And how to break Marianne's curse in The Witch's Kiss? Well, it took me two books to figure that one out.
If I could have help with those scenes where I don't know what happens next, that would be brilliant! I'd love to be able to write stories faster. I love writing and I hope readers enjoy my books, too. But I want the stories to be the best they can be and if I have to wait a little for the answer to work its way into my brain, then that's what I'll do.

Until I find that magic lamp.
