Drive medWant to see a bigger picture of that yummy cover?

Blazing Miami sun. Cool classic cars. Dangerous undercover assignment. In Sidney Bristol’s scorching new Hot Rides series, the cars are fast and the romance is furious…

Aiden DeHart has a history—and secrets. His classic car garage is a front for an FBI operation. His current mission: get some evidence from a drug dealer’s ex-wife, then get out. Madison Haughton sending his engine into overdrive isn’t part of the plan, though, especially considering she might not be as innocent as Aiden thought…

Since her divorce from her sleazeball ex, Madison has sworn off bad boys, gotten some sweet tattoos, and become a star of Miami’s roller derby scene. But however fast she skates, her ex is always on her tail. When the sexy guy in the muscle car offers to help, he could be her ticket to safety—or a detour down a deadly road…

That’s a fun way to wake up in the morning!!! 😀

First Taste Box Set v300 dpiFirst Taste: A Collection of Hot Alpha Doms, First in Series Romances

Welcome to your FIRST TASTE of forbidden desire. This erotic romance collection introduces six hot series of the alpha Dominants and the sassy submissives who love them. These six books of varying lengths open the doors into new worlds of temptation. What’s your flavor?

The Principles of Lust, Lush 1 – Sasha White

Businesswoman Teal Jamison knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it. With her dream art gallery about to open, she’s in need of some serious stress relief, and virile carpenter Zack Dillon is just the man to give it to her. Only Zack doesn’t think they’re a good match. He likes to be in control, always, and Teal’s anything but submissive when she comes on to him.

Frisky Business, Frisky Series 1 – Michele Bardsley

When executive assistant Claire Williams is talked into one last favor for her ex-boss, magazine publisher and billionaire playboy, Lucius Devereaux, she never imagines she’ll end up at a BDSM resort. Or in the arms of the one man who’s always been off-limits.

Picture Her Bound, Bayou Bound 1 – Sidney Bristol

Odalia Foucheaux is a police officer desperate enough to break the rules. Jacques Savoy is the bounty hunter standing between her and ruin. He wants her safe from harm as much as he desires her body, her soul—and her submission.

First Taste Box Set 3D v300 dpiCome Monday, Wild Irish 1 – Mari Carr

After the death of her mother, Keira Collins became a surrogate parent to her younger brothers and sisters, her dreams put on hold. Now, at 27, she’s finally pursuing a college degree. Between classes, working at the family pub and still tending to siblings, she’s no time for romance. So why is she spending all her rare free time fantasizing about hot Professor Wallace bending her over his desk?

One Gold Heart, Dominant Cord 1 – Sadie Haller

When reclusive oboist, Mac Wallis agrees to replace an injured friend for the Christmas concert season, she gets more than she bargained for when she meets Dom, Finn Taylor and has to decide whether to take a chance or return to her life of seclusion.

A is for…, BDSM Checklist 1 – L. Dubois

The overseers of LA’s most exclusive BDSM club have a sexy new game—everyone is assigned a letter, and they have to try every kink, toy and activity from that part of the BDSM checklist. Master Jensen knows who, and what, he wants—Anna—but when he gets the first letter of the alphabet he must prove to himself, and the lovely submissive, that he’s willing to push them both to their limits, and maybe beyond.

I love readers!

Dear Readers,

Anytime I open the mailbox at my house and see an envelope from my publishers, my heart beats a little faster. Only good things come in envelopes!

Now, typically I know when to expect envelopes, but yesterday when I saw one sporting the stylistic Kensington K, I had no clue what it could be! None at all! And it was thick, a little bulky. I opened it up right away.

IMG_20150612_083027Inside was a letter from one of the awesome ladies I met at RT who works for Kensington. You see, there was an event the last half of the conference where people could come to a room, get a free book and then take a moment to write a “love letter” to their favorite Kensington authors. Since I’m new, I wasn’t expecting anything and attended the event thinking I’d hang out. Chat with readers. Meet some more of the Kensington family.

So imagine my surprise when I opened the letter and found some lovely notes readers sent me! It really made my day. I’m adding these letters to the shoe box of items to add to my reader wall I hope to construct this summer. Ya know, after I turn this book in!

Thank you guys for making this the best job ever!

Austin Author Affair

Dear Readers,

This last week has kicked my butt! After two fantastic events I have caught the mother of all con-cruds! I’m not entirely well yet, but I’m on the mend.

IMG_20150524_120102Last weekend I dragged two friends of mine down to Austin with me to attend a lovely Romance Inc. event called Austin Author Affair. It was at a hotel right on the arboretum so not only was it near-ish to downtown, but with all the trees and space you could want.

IMG_20150522_193445The event kicked off Friday with a welcome-turned-birthday party that was loads of fun. I got to meet and chat with fellow authors and attendees that came in from out of town. There was lots of catching up to do with everyone so it was really nice to have such a relaxed atmosphere after the crazy of RT.

20150523_135753Saturday was the signing. Despite the torrential rains there was a good crowd pretty much all day. For those who have been watching the news, this was the beginning of what has become the flooding here in Texas, but it didn’t bother those who came out all that much. We talked books, gushed about our favorite authors and oh yeah, I almost sold out of all my paperbacks!

20150523_121529My two friends were pretty snazzy, if you ask me. They made tutus to match my hair and had shirts that said Bristol’s Book Babes. That was pretty awesome! It was a first for me. 😀

After such a lovely signing my friends and I were starving, so we hit a local tamale house then 6th Street to do a little shopping. Of course the skies opened up and it started to rain again, but not only was it raining, there was a tornado–though not super nearby. We took shelter in a tattoo parlor and since the opportunity was there, both a friend and I got tattoos! I mean, when on 6th Street, why not, right?

IMG_20150524_152250My tattoo is a blue quill. It’s one of the recent adds to my list of tattoos to get and I’m super happy with it. For those who are curious–didn’t hurt at all. If it wasn’t for all the activity, it would have put me straight to sleep.

Once we were inked up and shopped out, we went back to the hotel to join the already in progress karaoke after party. After signing our hearts out and having a couple drinks, the event was officially over. Austin Author Affair was so much fun! Big thanks to all the readers who came out. You made the event rock!

Amazing time at RT!

Sidney RT HairDear Readers,

Thank you so much to everyone who tweeted, facebooked or met me at RT!

I’ll say first, sorry! I know a lot of people were shocked about the–ah–drastic physical change to my hair, but it was impulsive and I didn’t want to say anything in case I wound up needing to “fix” it. I learned my lesson though. I’ve got to have faith in my personal colorist! My hair was rocking!

This was my very first RT and man, I wasn’t really ready for it! I knew to expect a lot from conversations and stories of past conventions, but the talk didn’t do the size of the event justice. It was crazy and awesome!

Sidney RT PanelMy schedule compared to others wasn’t as crazy and hectic. I only had one panel I was presenting on, a gala I was helping host and some publisher parties, but man, did it keep me on my toes at all time!

The Across the Worlds panel had awesome questions! We seriously spent the whole time taking questions and telling stories. I shared the table with Shayla Black, Lexie Blake, Kennedy Lane and Carrie Ann Ryan. It was a great time!

Sidney RT GalaMy vibrators were a huge hit at the Shooting Stars Gala! And yes, that is a cheesecake in the middle of my table. Why, you ask? Well, because my reader lounge is called the Cheesecake Reader Lounge and I decided to bring that to life with a fun filled morning of books, sex toys and a pin up name! Each person who sat with me got a piece and I got to introduce people to the beatuiful thing that is Lambic, a Belgium beer that tastes of raspberries! In addition, everyone got a book, a USB drive of ebooks donated by awesome authors, and a couple of handmade items by Oh Whimsical Designs and myself.

IMG_20150507_190938Yes, I made some of my swag! I did Cheesecake reader key chains featuring the reading lounge logo. These were so easy and fun to make! Then, each person got a necklace with a couple sentences of the first sex scene in Drive, Hot Rides 1 on it. These are limited edition creations I won’t do all the time. It’s time consuming, but so much fun!

Geeze, what else?

I got to attend several Kensington and Loveswept parties that were lovely. I feel like I get to work with the best people in the business, and I am so excited about the upcoming year and all that’s in store!

RT wouldn’t be RT without all the amazing readers. I didn’t get anywhere near enough pics with them. So many wonderful people tracked me down to chat or talk books. I was blown away by just how awesome the readers at RT were!

The book fair was crazy. Can I say that again? C-R-A-Z-Y!

The RT Bookfair is actually the first signing my mother has attended. Probably of any author. I will never forget her wide-eyed expression as she looked around at all the people! I don’t think I prepared her adequately… or at all!

In happy news, my cover designer for my indie series, Bayou Bound, was in attendance. One of the highlights for me was getting to see her walk up to my table and stop when she realized that every book on my section was one of her creations. That was a pretty dang good moment!

All through the book fair I could not stop smiling and near tearing up thanks to the readers. From the scrapbooked covers to the glossy hardbacks people had created with book covers and teaser clips, it was just inspiring to think of all the people out there who have been part of this amazing journey. And it’s not done yet!

RT BoyfriendNow, for those of you who follow me on twitter and facebook, you got a little sneak peak of my boyfriend’s book fair outfit. We’ve known for a while what he would wear, and let me tell you now: I had nothing to do with this! My boyfriend and another friend hatched this plan for him to wear a tutu and she created one just for him with his “signature” black and silver colors. He was a huge hit! So if you guys saw him running around handing out my pins, well, you met my guy!

I wish I could name all of the wonderful people I met and hung out with this weekend. You guys, YOU are what makes events like this a blast. There were so many people I got to meet and hang out with. It was a special event, and I cannot wait to see some of you next weekend at Austin Author Affair or in June at Boas & Tiaras. Readers make my world go round!!
