"From daring (but funny) art heists to steamy hotel moments and shoot outs this was action packed, passion filled and funny from start to end. A must read if ever I have seen one."
--The Jeep Diva Reviews
I have a deep and abiding fondness for funny women, and a few years back I was happy to make the online acquaintance of hilarious, wacky Lucy Woodhull. Since then Lucy's published Ragnar and Juliet and Ragnar and Juliet 2: Concubine Boogaloo, throwing her own sizzling romantic comedy spin on science fiction. One reviewer said, "Lucy Woodhull does for human/alien romance what Captain Kirk's galactic conquests never could."
CONTEST: Read to the end of Lucy's post to find out how to win an ebook of her new saucy romantic comedy!
**************Your High School Gym Teacher Was Right: NEVER HAVE SEX!
Hi, I'm Lucy Woodhull, romantic comedy author, and I'm having a bit of a fangirl flail from being on Marta's blog. Have y'all read The She-Hulk Diaries? So awesome! Thanks very much, Marta, for hosting me.
Now, on to business: I have a very serious question for you. Has sex led you to ruination? Don't worry if the answer is "yes" -- many of us have made a bad decision or two in the noble pursuit of sweet, sweet booty. Such is the sad tale of Samantha Lytton, heroine of my new contemporary rom-com The Dimple of Doom. It's the story of a failed actress/depressed secretary/roller skate enthusiast who kissed the wrong guy at the office Christmas party. She thought her snog occurred with a nice accountant who would save her from eating cheese alone until she dies from patheticness.
Instead, this "accountant" (hint: he's totally not one) gets her in trouble with gun-toting jerks who'd kill her over a painting, which is, frankly, rude. This disastrous "accountant" has one seriously cute dimple.
You might not know that the dimple is the most evil of facial features, but it's clinically proven. Please refer this handy chart I just made, which is totally based on real science.
See? Samantha never had a chance against the power of a smirking, be-dimpled man with witty repartee and a kiss that makes steam come out of her ears. Who wouldn't commit a little burglary with such a man, or run off to Vegas with him, or even square dance in a silly outfit? I know, it's terrifying, but that's why I'm blogging here today -- to warn you all about the dangers of charming men and the dimples they dimple. You might not even realize that the reason you're wearing a crop top, or agreeing to go bungee jumping, or committing a weeknight break-and-enter is because of a dimple, but it's a distinct possibility. Constant vigilance is the only way to defeat hunky men. Or, you know, give in to them and have lots of hot, sweaty fun. Just try to stay out of jail, kids.
I managed to elude the sexy beckoning of a dimple, but my husband walloped me with a masterful chin dent, or "chin butt" is it is commonly known. I don't want to say what vile horrors his adorable face has caused me to undertake, but let's just say one of them might involve a sexy Wookiee outfit and a package of Sno Balls.
I've said too much.
What wicked deeds have you committed in the name of lust, er, love? Admit your most base sins in the comments for a chance to win a digital copy of TDOD. [The contest runs through August 15 and Lucy will choose the winner(s).]
Thank you very much for reading!
Thanks, Lucy, for sharing your scientific knowledge of evil facial features. I have often been led astray by a significant nose and have recently developed an inexplicable appreciation of stick-out ears especially when the light shows through them.
