My Guilty Indulgence
When I was asked to write this post for the feature here, I was asked to talk about my guilty indulgence. As both a reader and writer, I’m sure you can guess that my number one would be books whether reading or writing them, I’m absolutely addicted.

I’m sure all of you can relate, so in light of that, I’ve decided to let you all get to know my ‘Spice It Up’ characters a little better since these next couple days will be dedicated to the trilogy. I hope you all enjoy the interview.

Jennifer: Good morning everyone.
Heidi: Hi Jennifer, it’s a great morning isn’t it?
Zoey: Good morning.
Nathan: Hey.
Rafe: It would be even better if you came back in an hour or two. OUCH! What was that for?
Zoey: I’m sorry he’s normally such a charmer. It was a late night, and Rafe apparently isn’t fully awake yet.
Rafe: Yeah sorry, I’m used to a little more beauty sleep.
Lyric: *chuckles* Hello, Jennifer. *extends hand to shake*
Meagan: *shakes head at Rafe* Hi Jennifer, it’s a pleasure to see you again.

Jennifer: Likewise, so would you all care to tell us how it feels to finally have your happily ever after, after all of this time?
Meagan: Amazing! Lyric has literally saved me from myself, among other things. First with a job when I needed one, an amazing friendship when I had none, and then with…*clears throat* Let’s just say I noticed him instantly, and I haven’t been able to let go ever since.
Lyric: Aw, Meagan, me too. *Lyric reaches over to pull Meagan closer, and wraps an arm around her.* I love you, baby.
Meagan: I love you too!
Nathan: Yeah, yeah, we’re all happy for you, primo. *grins* It’s bliss for the four of us too, and only gets better.
Heidi: It’s better than anything I could imagine. I’ve been in love with Nathan forever, and I’ve been blessed with not only him but the love of Rafe and Zoey too.
Rafe: Yep, and if it wasn’t for me putting the moves on Heidi when I did Nathan may have never wisened up and married the red-headed beauty. *winks* The three of us were dynamite together, and then I met my love, Zoey, and we became perfect as a foursome.

Jennifer: Sounds to me like you’re taking credit for things getting started between the four of you.
Rafe: Damn, straight. It’s one of the reasons why everyone loves me so much.
Zoey: *snort* We certainly do love Rafe, but as you can see one of his many charms is his humor. I actually think it was Heidi that brought all of us together. She was the glue that held your threesome together and then chose to introduce us when you needed more. Thank you, Heidi.
Heidi: *blushes* You’re welcome.
Nathan: *laughs* Hey man, she’s got you there.
Rafe: *shrugs and then pulls Zoey closer to him* Love you, baby.

Jennifer: So Lyric, it must have been a big change for you when Meagan walked into your bar and was reluctant to give you a shot at first, considering you have women swoon at your feet on almost a nightly basis while you’re on stage.
Meagan: *laughs* oh yes, the groupies. It’s actually comical at times to watch. Sorry, ladies, he’s now spoken for.
Lyric: What do you mean comical? *feigns a wounded look, and then smiles* It was, I guess, but completely worth the wait. I love performing, and my music even more, but I’m past the meaningless trysts of my youth, and wanted to settle down for some time. Meagan made that happen for me, and there will never be anyone else.

Jennifer: Do you write your own songs, Lyric? I mean I know the answer to that, but humor me, 
for those readers out there who have yet to read Lyrics and Lust.
Lyric: I do, but I get the odd request to sing other’s as well, so I’ve done that from time to time.
Meagan: Wait till you hear the one he wrote for me. *smiles* Read the book people, you won’t be disappointed.
Nathan: Yes, you should read the whole trilogy in order. Jennifer certainly knows how to spice up the pages. *winks*

Jennifer: *blushes* I may have written your stories, but it was all of you who knew how to heat those pages for my readers. We’ve got a sexy threesome, turned foursome in the first two stories, and then a sexy rock star /knight in shining armor who rescues the beautiful damsel in distress in the third. Did I leave anything out?
Rafe: Only the part where the beautiful author decides to join us in the fourth installment turning the foursome into a fifthsome…
Lyric: Fifthsome? *laughs* dude, I don’t think that’s even a word.
Zoey: *shakes head* Come on Rafe quit putting Jennifer on the spot. She’s as red as a tomato right now.
Rafe: Sorry, Jennifer.

Jennifer: *giggles* It was certainly a pleasure writing it for you. I’d like to thank you all for letting me interview you today. I loved telling your stories, and am really looking forward to when ‘Three Words to Bliss’ the paperback version of all three stories comes out later this month.
Heidi: Thank you for having us today.
Nathan: It’s been a pleasure.
Zoey: We’re looking forward to it too.
Rafe: Although next time I’d prefer an afternoon interview, it’s always great to see you Jennifer.
Meagan: Rafe!
Rafe: What? A man needs his beauty sleep too. *chuckles*
Lyric: Thank you, Jennifer. I hope you keep in touch.

Jennifer: I definitely will. In the meantime, I hope our readers enjoy the blurbs below and enter for a chance to win Spice It Up, the first in the trilogy.

Heidi Taylor has fallen in love with a man who’s off limits. He’s her best friend and she’s afraid to tell him how she really feels, that is until Nathan suggests she needs a little spice in her love life, and designates himself as her something spicy.

Rafe Zakas had no intention of settling down until he met and fell hard for his two closest friends, Nathan and Heidi. But, their perfect trio fell apart when Nathan got a job offer he couldn’t refuse, relocating them. Rafe soon realizes there’s something missing in his life, and decides he needs to find his own something spicy to fill the void. She’s got to be open minded and love him for him, kinkiness included, and he hopes to soon turn their trio into a quartet with Heidi’s help.
Zoey Appleby was content with being single, until her good friend Heidi sets her up with this gorgeous Greek Adonis named Rafe. He awakens desires in her she never knew were there, and introduces her to a whole new lifestyle. Shy at first Zoey has some choices to make, will it be a new love, or the life she’s used to?

~Lyrics and Lust (Spice It Up 3)~
Meagan Morales hits a rough patch in life, and in love. Moving to a new city with the help of her cousin, she feels like the fifth wheel once Nathan welcomes her into his home. You see, Nathan not only has a newly-wed wife but two lovers who live there with them, making Meagan worry that she’s intruding.
She gains new friends, employment, and surprises herself when she opens up to the very sexy, Mr. Lyric Cooper, but danger lurks in the shadows and she may need to risk her heart again to survive it.
Lyric Cooper lives for music. He’s got a successful business, his own band, and a regular audience. Lucky in life, but unlucky in love, Meagan suddenly walks into his bar and he knows she’s something special. Now if he can only convince her to think the same about himself...



Best wishes,
Jennifer Labelle
