Woohoo!! (Or when Emma almost falls out of her chair...)

August releases and stuff

I've just been told that It Started With A Kiss will be released this coming Monday, 2 August! It's my first romance (ie. not erotica or erotic romance) and it's going to be interesting to see if it sells. I guess it's also not a straightforward romance, but then when do I ever write anything straightforward? It's got a huge twist and I do love the story, so I hope everyone does too! I'll post links as soon as I have them.

I also noticed that One Last Vice is up on eXcessica as an August release. It'll be published on Friday 27!

Oh, and today is the last day to vote in the 3rd Smut Marathon Contest. The authors remained anonymous like last time and I can definitely say for sure I won't win (well, not votes-wise anyway!). I wanted to try something different this time around, and no one was able to guess which story I'd written. Ah!
I didn't want to write something expected (the theme being Stilettos, I imagined stories with only wearing those in bed or BDSM-related); instead I went against the grain. It was a lot of fun writing the story, but now I can't wait to know the next challenge!

First review for A Thin Line!

A big thank you to BookWenches for the great review. I love the comments on Jace, as that's exactly how I wanted him to be (hence the title - A Thin Line...Between Love and Hate).

Sensuality Level: 3
Rating: 4.5
Reviewed by: Teagan S. Boyd

When the lights go out, and the door unexpectedly shuts, Kate can't believe that she and her hunky neighbor are locked in the laundry room in the middle of the night with no one available to come to their rescue. As the temperature drops in the room, the body temperatures rise. Kate and Jace find some very interesting ways to keep warm.

When the laundry room encounter is over, Jace keeps coming by her apartment and reliving the "fun." Unfortunately, Kate realizes that she is just a booty call when she sees Jace with his gorgeous girlfriend; she understands why Jace only shows up in the middle of the night after being with the woman he isn't ashamed to be seen with. Kate knows she much end it, but her body is at odds with her brain of that.


A Thin Line is an all around entertaining story. I enjoyed this quick-paced, racy read. It contains many of the things that always draw my attention: conflict, misunderstanding, a heroine that isn't the perfect model type, and red-hot sex. Add in a great story, and this book will keep a smile on your face.

Kate is a wonderful character. I found her to be extremely realistic. She has flaws and she knows them. I especially like how she has the right intentions in dealing with Jace and yet can't seem to follow through because of her feelings for him. That is real life!

Jace is one of those characters that you will both love and hate. I wanted to hate him but found that I just couldn't. He is wrong on so many levels, but it is easy to fall into his charm just like Kate does. I truly enjoyed him.
A Thin Line is a quick, easy, and entertaining book that will appeal to many readers. Miss Hillman adds spice and love to a great story and comes out on top. I can't wait to read more of her work.

A Thin Line is out!

Out, out, out!

And I'm very happy because it's already a Best Seller over at All Romance eBooks. In 2 days! And I did zero promo!
I saw the star yesterday and I beamed at my screen. What a lovely, lovely feeling.
I also noticed it already had a rating (5/5!) over at Bookstrand so pretty cool for its first weekend.

I can't wait for reviews now. Bring it on!

3rd! I'm 3rd with my story 'Guess'. Not bad as there are only 2 votes separating me from the top spot (respectively, 26 for the 1st, 25 for the 2nd, and 24 for me!). I'm already thinking of the next challenge...and it's a doozy!

I also received some great great news that I can't share right now, but I'm beyond excited!
