Simply Sexy Stories Welcomes Raven Kelly!

NG: Welcome, Raven! Please tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from, what is your background?

RK: My name is Raven Kelly and I'm the webmistress for three websites. Vampiress.ca, VampireBooks.ca, and RavenKelly.com. I'm from Canada, and live in the beautiful province of British Columbia. I read and review paranormal and vampire books as a hobby, and I absolutely love it. My husband and I have our own Internet company together. He truly is my soul mate, my best friend and the other half of me. I'm also the mother to four loving fur babies named Blacks, Bouncer, Priscilla Presley and Tili.

NG: When you were younger what did you want to be when you grew up?

RK: I wanted to be a psychologist and help children and adults with their problems. I met my husband and we decided to start our own Internet company, and I have never looked back.


NG: Why did you decide to start your first website Vampiress.ca?

RK: I have always been interested in Vampires, and Witches from a young age. I started reading Twilight (yes I know what you are thinking), and that ignited my interest in vampires again. I read a few books in the genre, and soon after decided that I wanted to give other Vampire fans like myself a heads up on good Vampire books to read.

NG: Favorite season? Why?

RK: I absolutely love the Fall Season. I'm a Fall baby, so I guess that is a part of the reason. I love the colorful leaves, cooler weather, all things "Halloween," and also I'm a Atheist witch so it goes all seems to go along.

NG: Who is your favorite Author(s)?

RK: WOW, that is hard question to answer. I don't want to be biased, but some that instantly come to mind are Lyndsay Sands, Katie Mac Alister, Lisa J Smith, Gerry Bartlett, Christine Freehan, Jenika Snow and Rae Lori are a few authors that I really enjoy.

NG: Who is your hero? Someone you admire and look up to?

RK: I admire and look up to my husband, I admire his drive, and patience. He is such a driven person in life and someone who works hard to achieve his goals.

NG: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?

RK: I would live where I am now, in Canada, in the most beautiful province there is. My dream would be to one day live in big log cabin on some land with my 4 cats and husband. I would have chickens, cows, goats, and a few horses on my land. I would also have a massive organic garden with every vegetable known to man, and lots of fruit trees. I would also build my house by a nice stream so I can hear the water outside my bedroom window at night. I love nature and everything about it. I love the piece and quiet and, the smell of the clean air in the mountains. That would be heaven for me.

NG: Tell is something interesting about yourself?

RK: I was born on my mothers birthday and I am exactly half her age. I was also born on a full moon.

NG: What interests you and what do you like to do for fun?

RK: I love watching hockey I'm a huge Edmonton Oilers Fan. I love reading and spending time on my websites. I like aromatherapy, and nice hot bubble baths. I also like to workout and eat healthy.

NG: Describe yourself in one word?

RK: I can't describe myself in one word, but people always tell me that "I'm a nerd trapped in a beautiful body." LOL

NG: What is your favorite food?

RK: CHOCOLATE, I love chocolate. Anything that has chocolate on it, I'm eating. My husband has to hide chocolate from me because I would eat it all day long.

NG: lol! Thanks so much for stopping by Simply Sexy Stories, Raven!

RK: I hope everyone enjoyed learning a little about me, I enjoyed sharing myself with you all.

Best Laid Plans by Heather Peters

Wedding planner extraordinaire Taylor Forrester is stunned when her potential clients turn out to be her ex-fiancé Caleb Bryant and his future wife. It's obvious he's moved on with his life nearly three years after Taylor abruptly broke off their engagement. But Taylor harbors a secret that led to their break up. She had to let him go, but still loves him.

Caleb Bryant's heart breaks all over again when fate brings him and Taylor together as he plans his wedding to another woman! One look at Taylor and Caleb cannot deny the love that still burns bright for his one true love. Will this chance meeting finally bring him the answers he demands? Or is it too late to mend broken fences?

Caution! Scintillating Excerpt Below:
Taylor Forrester clutched her wedding planner like a bible, grabbed an overstuffed folder, and crammed both items into an already-crowded tote bag.

She looked around her tiny apartment to make certain she'd remembered everything. She chided herself for neglecting to do the laundry this morning, but duty called. Her boss, Jane Donnelly, had asked Taylor to fill in for a co-worker who was down with the flu. She dutifully gathered a lavender cloth bag engraved with the title, "Bridesmaid," which held everything she needed to create the perfect dream wedding.

The dream that hadn’t come to fruition for herself. She sighed, once again reminded of the old adage, "always the bridesmaid, never the bride."

She grabbed her car keys, slipped into her good Kenneth Cole heels, and took one last look around the room to make sure she had everything she needed for her meeting with the prospective couple.

Truth was, Taylor seldom forgot anything pertaining to her work. She was the ideal wedding planner, the perfect bridesmaid, the loyal maid of honor.

Big deal. She'd give it all up to be on the other side of the date book.

* * * * *

Twenty minutes later, Taylor arrived at her office, a tiny but serviceable area in a corner cubicle, and placed her valise on the floor next to her chair. Her thick binder sat unopened in the center of her pristine desk. She looked at her watch, puffing out a tiny sigh to see she had two entire minutes before meeting the couple she'd been asked to see. From habit, she touched the empty spot on her ring finger where a diamond used to sit. She gave herself a mental shake. This is no time for a pity party. Get to work.

Because today was Sunday, she was alone. She shrugged off her salmon-colored blazer, tucked her shoulder-length hair behind her ears, and opened her folder to make a mental note of the bride's name. Suzanne Dobbs was some rich society matron's daughter. The groom owned a construction company across town. Taylor was just about to read his name when she heard the ding of the elevator.

Taylor remained standing in order to greet the young couple who entered her open office doorway. She looked up and saw a stunning, tall, brunette walk toward her, with a much taller, sandy-haired man behind her.

Taylor's heart stopped.

Caleb.

Exciting News!

Total E-Bound has picked up two of my novellas!

As You Wish will be released Feb. 21, 2011!
This erotic paranormal romance took me almost a year to complete. I worked on other stories while I waited for all the pieces of this hot, suspenseful tale to fall into place.

Here's the short blurb:
A race against time to save a loved one from supernatural forces leaves Karis, a novice clairvoyant, no choice but to trust a very sexy genie granting three wishes and an offer to help her tap into her psychic abilities...if she'll come willing to his bed.


Hearts & Diamonds, a contemporary erotic romance will be released March 7, 2011!
Here's the blurb:
Nia Sanders knows diamonds. She appreciates the heart-felt emotions of her customers buying them. When federal agent, Quin Rios saves her life in the middle of a violent jewel heist, she finds herself attracted to the sensual possibilities beneath his uber professional, self-contained persona.


Determined to keep her safe as he solves the case, Quin can't let his attraction to Nia distract him. The heat of their fiery passion consumes them as they both struggle to control their emotions...neither are prepared to lose their heart.

Look for more details soon!

TGIF!!

What a week this has been. I don't know about you, but I'm so glad Friday is only hours away! I don't remember how I came across this picture, but it made me laugh when I really needed it.

The vacant glaze in this chick's eyes is PRICELESS!! Sadly, unlike her, I do give a s**** which makes my life a helluva lot harder, but I'm trying to get to the higher echelon of thinking this lady has mastered.

Have a great weekend, folks!

Musical Magic Monday's!!

I'm starting something new! Music is such a huge part of my life. It soothes my soul, makes me smile, puts me in the mood and so much more. A magical song evokes emotion within me that I can't hold back. As as singer and musician, I've found inspiration in my own music and others.

So, every Monday, I plan to share songs that have impacted my life or writing or songs that simply touch my heart. There are sooooo many, but I heard this song on the radio and was moved as I always am when I listen to it.



Hero, by Enrique Iglesias. Pure perfection! The story, the video, the emotion behind his voice gives me chills every single time I listen. The questions he asks in the beginning of the song wring my heart. The look in Jennifer Love Hewitt's eyes tell a story by themselves. Love, doubt, fear, longing, fear, sadness...it's incredible and Enrique acts his butt off in this video in my opinion. He's also sexy as hell. My goodness, this guy wreaks sensuality. I love this song! I've listened to it more than ten times already and I'm not done! What about you? Does this song move you? Do you get goosebumps when you listen?

I can be your hero baby. I can kiss away the pain. I will stand by you forever. You can take my breath away..."

"I can be your hero baby. I can kiss away the pain. I will stand by you forever. You can take my breath away.."
Indeed, Enrique, indeed...

Happy Sweetest Day!

Tomorrow is Sweetest Day! I have to admit, I don't really 'do' this little holiday, but maybe I should. Some say this is Valentine's Day for the guys and if that's what this day is all about I have to talk about my sweetie. Yep, I've got a real life hottie, who does just about anything to please me and I try to do the same.

Maintaining a healthy, loving relationship is hard work. When you're married it's even tougher because you can't just hang up the phone, avoid the person when problems arise or say, "F***k it, I'm done!" Well, I guess you could and some do, but if you've got a good partner, I believe love is worth fighting AND making up for, so grab your sweetie pie and tell 'em you love them!


Isn't this hammock gorgeous? Designed by Victor Alemán

HAPPY SWEETEST DAY!!

Announcements!

I'm the guest blogger for
Here's a snippet from my post entitled:
Going beyond cliché characters

I started reading romance novels in like the seventh grade. I don’t remember exactly where I came across my first book, but I do remember staring at the cover of a beautiful damsel being held by a brawn hottie in a tight embrace. I devoured the pages of the book, well on my way to becoming a romance novel junkie. I hoarded the books, sought them out in thrift shops and libraries much to my parent’s consternation. Despite their disapproval, I kept feeding my guilty addiction.

Lovin' Leela Is Now Available!!

A justified complaint of noise leads Leela Monroe on a wild sexual adventure in which she discovers just how easy it could be to "love thy neighbor".

Leela Monroe has had just about enough of the loud music and desperate cries of passion keeping her up all night thanks to her new neighbor next door. Ready to give him a piece of her mind, she's distracted from her complaints when Sam answers the door, throwing her off guard with his sexy smile and into a state of unyielding longing. She gives into the hot chemistry between them, enjoying sex for the first time in her life, but can a relationship based on pleasure truly amount to anything more?

Here it is!!!

The book trailer for Lovin' Leela! I started working on it around 8:30 p.m. last night and after some minor technical difficulties finished it up around 1:30 a.m. I wish it didn't take me quite as long, but I haven't figured out a way to make it go any faster. Most of the time is spent finding the right pictures, words and then timing it and re-timing the entire trailer until it's perfect...or nearly so. lol
Anyways, it was a labor of love...I hope you enjoy it!
