Blog Tour: Christine Warner and Some Like it in Handcuffs

I’m delighted to have Christine Warner on my blog today as she tours with her contemporary romance, SOME LIKE IT IN HANDCUFFS.

Christine and I originally connected back in the days of Six Sentence Sundays, and have  become blogging and social media buddies. She’s always friendly, helpful and supportive of other authors and–hey–she knows how to create a swoon-worthy hero as you’re about to find out.

So, grab a cup of your favorite beverage (I’ll make mine Green Mountain Vermont Country decaf) and enjoy the special treat Christine has prepared for us!


Before I get started I want to thank Mae for letting me take over her awesome blog today! Thanks for making me feel so welcome 🙂

One of my favorite things about sitting down to enjoy some reading time with a good romance is the moment the hero and heroine meet. I love to see what they think of each other in their own words—either by their internals or if they are so bold as to comment aloud. Lol

When I wrote Some Like it in Handcuffs—my light-hearted romantic suspense with humor—I also discovered I liked the process of writing their first impressions. To me, those first impressions show so much about who they really are.

I’d like to share Sunny Kennedy’s first impression of her hero Judson Blackwolf…and I hope when you’re finished reading you have as much of a crush on him as I do 🙂



His large hand combed through his thick overgrown hair before he stopped in annoyance then

swung around on his heel. The mercury light on the pole behind her lit his face as he looked down at her with the most extraordinary pair of gray eyes she’d ever seen. Not solid gray as she summed up in her hasty inspection, but the type of blue-gray color that matched the sky during a spring storm.

Definitely easy on the eyes. The startling realization that this no nonsense detective was quite

a specimen of manhood surprised her. It took her what…all of five minutes to notice. The word handsome didn’t do him justice. His strong, rugged features and dark coloring made his Native American heritage obvious. His height and size made her feel feminine and—she flinched—protected.

Her gaze traveled from the top of his head to the toes of his well-made leather shoes. If she’d paid attention from the start, instead of pouting over her predicament, she’d have noticed all of this sooner. Her lips twitched at her own blatant evaluation of him.

Just the type of guy she was attracted to, too bad he worked law enforcement. All her life she’d been surrounded by men who talked cop day and night. Sunny had sworn off ever actually dating anyone in the profession.

Okay, you’ve learned what weakens my knees at the beginning of a good romance…tell me what weakens yours. 🙂

  1. G’day Christine! So glad to be able to find some of my favorites around the loops. I didn’t know you were a fellow Michigander! The Mitten Author pile is growing I reckon, something to do during our long winters. And ain’t this one just the dickens? Bloody heck, my family can’t wait for Spring to come, of course I’m way up north, so it may still be awhile. Hope there is at least no snow where you are 🙂


    • Hi, Cd! Thanks for dropping in to check out Christine’s post. Would you believe we have high 70s today with mid 80s forecast for tomorrow. WOOT! That warm weather has got to hit you and Christine in Michigan sooner or later. BTW, my late critique partner lived in Lincoln Park. I think that’s a suburb of Detroit, but Im clueless, LOL!


      • Mae I’m so jealous of your weather. They actually forcasted earlier today that we might have a few flurries this week. Brrr. And you hit Lincoln Park on the head, it’s very close to Detroit 🙂


    • Hey Cd….I’m a born and bred Michigander 🙂 And totally with you about winter. It started out mild, but the cold just keeps dragging. We are finished with snow finally, but now the rain and gray skies begin. I’m ready to open windows and hear the birds sing. lol


  2. My fave part is when the hero and heroine first meet — it’s so fun seeing their expectations, and prejudices, collide with their attraction for each other. Hey, I think you just gave me an idea for a blog post I have to write. LOL

    This sounds like a great read. I remember the Six Sunday snippets of TWO TIMING THE BOSS. Lots of fun!


  3. Hey, hey, ladies! I’m reading this book right now and loving it! (Yes, Christine, I know I was reading it a month ago… What does that tell you about my amount of free time? LOL) LOVE this book! 😀


    • Hi, Calisa! That’s a great recommendation. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if there were scheduled reading breaks throughout the day? No many how many hours I set aside for reading, there just aren’t enough to get to all the great books out there!


    • LOL…I know exactly the situation you’re in. I used to devour a few books a week, now I’m lucky if I can read 1 or 2 a month. I miss that. But…I’m glad you are enjoying the story. Thanks for taking the time to read it Calisa!


I love comments, so please scribble a thought or two!
