GUEST LAUNCH PARTY + GIVEAWAY: Smoking Hot by Karen Kelley

Please welcome back fellow Sourcebooks author Karen Kelley to the Casa blog! Her third erotic romance from Sourcebooks, Smoking Hot, hits stores this month!

Waving Hi!

I can't believe I have another release coming out. Whoever said time flies when you're having fun was right. I've enjoyed writing every one of my nephilim books. Who wouldn't want to sit and dream about sexy men who are half man/half angel? I have a few prayer requests!

In Smoking Hot, Raine gives up a job she loves patrolling the mean streets of Fort Worth so she can return home and take care of her grandfather and the ranch. But when she discovers a sexy intruder who tells her she'll be shot and killed, Raine thinks the comatose small town atmosphere might have driven her over the edge. Crazy might just run in her family.

Dillon is a nephilim who breaks all the rules. He would love to answer every naughty prayer Raine has ever had, but Raine is in serious danger. Dillon can only fulfill her every fantasy if he can keep her alive.

The Good Girl series was from an idea brewing for a long time inside my head. I combined humor, paranormal, suspense and erotic romance. The challenge was the combination of all those elements. I've never been one to turn away from a challenge so why start now?

Okay, now I have to ask you--if you had a nephilim show up in your house ready to answer any prayer, what would it be?  

Karen Kelley

Thank you, Karen, for stopping by the blog!! For a chance to win one of two copies of Smoking Hot, just answer Karen’s question. Winners will be announced on Friday, June 14. Please be sure to leave an email address so we can contact you (US and Canada mailing addresses only).


Everything She Wants...
Working the night shift at the sheriff's office has given deputy Raine McCandless more than enough time to fantasize about the kind of man she'd like to take prisoner, so when she arrives home to find a sexy intruder waiting for her, she's pretty sure she must be dreaming.

...Can and Will Be Held Against Her
But Dillon Taylor, with his stunning blue eyes and killer tan, is 100% real, just not 100% human. Half-man, half-angel, he'd love to answer every naughty prayer Raine has ever had. But Raine is in serious danger. And Dillon can only fulfill her every fantasy if he can keep her alive.

  1. Take me dancing, dinner and whatever. LOL.

  2. Hmm, I think I would ask him to use his connections and
    to do what he could to solve a few of the major problems that seem to be plaguing us lately so that everyone would be a little less stressed.

  3. to cook and clean

  4. I would ask him to grant me my wish to always have a happy life with no troubles financially. To ensure that I always have a job of some kinds.

  5. LOL I agree 100% with everyone. I think cleaning would be on top of my list, that and financially secure.

  6. I would ask for peace and prosperity for my loved ones :)


  7. Damned if I know - but if one showed up, I'd think of something!!! Thanks for the giveaway. I love, love your books!

  8. I think right now I would want him to just take way my aches and pains. I have way to many for someone my age due to an injury and medical problems. But if he could cook, clean, make me comfortably wealthy, and satisfy all my other needs *wiggles eyebrows* I would be way more than happy :)

  9. Morning everyone! Love the answers! Over the years I've discovered I have a lot in common with other people. We all want our basic needs met and would like to win a major lottery and have a hot man do our cooking and cleaning. Is that really too much to ask for? LOL
    Martha--I'm thrilled you enjoy my books! It would not hurt my feelings if you shouted to the world what a brilliant author I am LOL

  10. Thanks to everyone who commented, and to Karen for stopping by the blog!

    Our winners are
    Martha Lawson

    I'll be emailing you both shortly!

    Have a great weekend,

  11. Thanks so much and congrats to Martha as well! I look forward to reading Smoking Hot and wish you much success with its release Karen!
