A Sentence A Day... "How many women have you slept with?" #WIP #HighPressure



* Just as he put his glass to his lips and took a sip, her father released a zinger. “How many women have you slept with?”

* "Doesn't anybody ever say 'like white on rice' anymore?"

* "And yet, you're asking me."

* “Hey, man, Grayson Pierce. I’ve heard a lot about you.”

* Yeah, she was so not going to admit she’d lost her sanity for a second there.

* Despite the what-the-hell buzzing through his bloodstream, he donned an I-don’t-give-a-shit fa├žade. 

* “A blowjob.”

* It wasn’t like she’d pulled this move in the middle of the grocery store.

* Molly’s magical touch had a way of bringing a man to his knees, and apparently canines weren’t immune.

#TeamKearns in #Vegas 2014

Karen Cino & I

 Every booksigning is awesome!


I LOVE seeing old friends, meeting new ones, 

Allie K Adams & I



FINALLY meeting those friends face to face,

and hugging members of #TeamKearns! Not to mention signing books for all of the above.

 

But this particular trip to the Romance Novel Convention Book Fair (#RNCVegas2014) was amazingly sweet because I was able to take my husband along.

Because of our four fairly young kids, we usually have to tag-team the out of town thing. This July, though, we capitalized on our anniversary and birthdays and RNC becoming the perfect storm and hit Vegas!

My favorite part of the event was the quick camaraderie between Ryan Diaz and Gavin Matthew and my husband. 

The three acted like life long buddies and laughed and teased throughout the afternoon, until Rhonda and I were in stitches.



A BIG THANKS to Ryan Diaz aka Enrique "Ricky" Santiago from Lucky 13. Yes, he's reading "himself"...The Condom Scene. Bwahahaha!







...and Gavin Matthew, who will become the face of Mason James (as soon as we talk him into losing the beard *wink*) 





 
and Rhonda Plumhoff, President Extraordinaire for adding to the awesomeness of the weekend!!!

Let's do it again very soon! 

Like February? 

Mwah!

Romancing the Jock

June Post: Sportscasters and Athletes: Walking a Fine Line
Having worked in television news I learned very quickly all about the fine line between getting the story and pissing people off. Sportscasters need to cover the black for 8-10 minutes of every newscast and athletes, like it or not, are the focus of their stories. **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com

May Post: You get what you pay for... Or do you?

You’ve heard the old adage: You get what you pay for, but I’m not so sure. Sports teams pay big bucks to get the right players, certain all those dollar signs will ensure a winning season. Except nothing is certain. Nothing. **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com


April Post: Cheerleaders vs the NFL

Over the course of the last few months, cheerleaders from the Oakland Raiders and the Cincinnati Bengals have sued their teams for unfair wage practices.**continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com


March Post: History of March Madness
March Madness crowns the NCAA’s best of the best and the journey is anticipated by players, coaches and fans alike. Here in the Kearns household, we are counting down the days. I’d make a paper chain of maroon and gold if my children hadn’t threatened to disown if I did. **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com

February's Post: Kerrigan Attack Anniversary 
Many stories will be forever engrained in my memory; the bombing in Oklahoma City, the shootings at Columbine, 9-11 (of course). But among those memories is the attack on Nancy Kerrigan at the Lillehammer Olympics. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of that attack. **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com

January's Post: Favorite 2013 Sports Moments
It’s time to say goodbye to 2013 and the amazing events that thrilled us, chilled us and had us wanting to chuck the TV through the wall. Some of my favorites included: **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com

December's Post: Fact or Fiction: No Bad Publicity?
“Any publicity is good publicity.” We’ve all heard the saying, but is it really true? **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com

November's Post: Athlete. BadAss. Are the two synonymous?
Badasses come in all shapes and sizes. Riding motorcycles, strapping on bulletproof vests, wearing camo in the desert or sporting a body’s worth of tattoos, yeah…those all apply. But athletes are in a class all their own. **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com

October's Post: Utah Coach Suspends Entire Team
Athletes are rock stars. Whether they want to be or not. Kids and adults alike cheer for them when the clock is running—and adore them after the buzzer sounds. Kids playing high school sports aren’t immune. Other students look up to these guys and gals, and they have a duty to live up to that honor. **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com

September's Post: Win or Lose, it's all about the attitude.
As a mother I’ve tried to instill in my kids the importance of a good attitude. Good sportsmanship, if you will. I’ve often wondered is it easier to have good sportsmanship when the game’s going well or when it’s…not? **continue reading on RomancingTheJock.com

Hard Break is now in Audio





Seeing my book in print is always exciting. 






Seeing Fade to Black for the very first time was beyond awesome. 




 
But I have to admit to that being trumped by hearing Hard Break read by a professional narrator.

Tim Campbell captured the characters perfectly, giving life to my friends.

Cover Reveal: Heart of a Champion Bundle



 


He’s impossible to resist…with a ripped body and a heart of a champion…Valued at over $20, take advantage of the introductory price - just .99 thru 06/20/14.

Romance and athletic heroism combine in this ultimate boxed set containing five full-length sports romances by popular authors Cassandra Carr, Kelly Jamieson, Morgan Kearns, Roz Lee and Chanta Rand.


Enjoy football, baseball and hockey heroes in Should've Known Better, Offside, In It To Win It, Inside Heat and The Highest Bidder.

Should've Known Better (Storm Series, #1) by Cassandra Carr - Sarah Jenkins, a math geek and hockey fanatic, is thrilled when the NHL hires her as an advisor for the Buffalo Storm. She meets Sebastian St. Amant, a young hockey player looking to make the jump from the minors to the big leagues. When Sarah and Sebastian meet, sparks immediately fly. A relationship is out of the question—Sarah’s an influential staff member and Sebastian’s a player, not to mention over ten years her junior. But the impossible becomes the necessary when they can no longer fight their attraction. Will they weather the storm, or should they have known better?

Offside (Heller Brothers, #5) by Kelly Jamieson - Honey Holbrook’s attention-grabbing antics were tabloid fodder for years. Now she’s trying to leave her past behind her and make a new life for herself. Matt Heller is recovering from a serious injury that changed his whole outlook on life, determined to resume his hockey career. Neither of them are happy to be working together again after their wild and wicked fling eight years ago ended badly...

In It To Win It (Deadlines & Diamonds, #2) by Morgan Kearns - Back in the day, ‘Plain Jane’ Alexander blended into the background, content to watch from the sidelines while Grayson Pierce soaked up the spotlight. Content until he broke her heart. Bitter, she did the college thing, came out of her shell, and never looked back. Grayson loves baseball. It was his pastime in high school, his passion in college, and now…his career. However baseball isn’t the only thing in Grayson’s heart. He likes fast cars, loose women and expensive liquor. When her job as a Sportscaster sends her to Grayson’s doorstep, she realizes that not everything is as it appears.

Inside Heat (Mustangs Baseball, #1) by Roz Lee - Jeff and Jason are at the top of their game. Jeff is the Texas Mustangs’ closer, revered throughout the Major League for throwing inside heat, while his twin brother Jason is the team’s starting catcher and star hitter. The two have always shared more than their identical DNA, so when they meet Megan, it’s no wonder they both want her.
Megan doesn’t know baseball, but she does know a sexy guy when she sees one - or two. When a potentially career-ending injury sidelines Jeff, his ego takes a hit, too. Megan finds herself on the outside – the dirty little secret. It doesn’t help that Jeff has gotten the wrong impression about her and his brother. It’s all fun and games until someone falls in love.

The Highest Bidder by Chanta Rand - Quarterback Tristan Rexford is a hunter both on and off the football field. With a seven-figure income, a dazzling smile, and a body resembling Michelangelo’s David, he’s every woman’s fantasy.
But Doctor Alexa Kennedy barely has time for her patients, much less fantasies. When it comes to men, she’s short on patience and long on disappointment. When one of the hospital’s board members attends a charity benefit and ends up with the winning bid for a date with Tristan, Alexa is chosen to escort him.
They share a night of passion before Tristan retreats to his glamorous world, leaving her aching for more. Alexa tells herself it was all in the name of charity. She’s too sensible to fall for someone like Tristan. Or is she?
