I like to think of buying a book as a trip to the bakery. I peek through the glass display cases and ogle all the pastries trying to decide whether I'm going to buy my old favorite or try something new. They all look so lovely and decadent, but what if I waste my money? What if I try something new and I'm disappointed?
On the other hand, maybe something different is just what I need. Will I close my eyes and moan as I consume the gooey treat, licking my fingers and wishing I'd bought more?
The same is true for me when I'm looking for a new book. I peruse the selection, reading the samples, making my choice. Will I go with an author I already love, or try someone new?
An anthology is like getting to try dozens of different treats for a fraction of what you'd pay individually. What's not to love? Some of us read the stories written by our favorite authors first and then go on. Other people start at the beginning and read every one in order. In any case, chances are you'll discover an author you've never read whose story make your heart pound and you'll be off looking for more of his or her books.
.Stevie MacFarlane is sweet. No seriously, they say I am the sweet one. I hear it all the time and I’ve tried so very hard to get down and dirty, nasty even, but alas, I am a cupcake. I may even be a ‘vanilla’ cupcake!
The Arms I Run To is my contribution to the fabulous anthology, Hero Undercover, and I must admit it’s a little on the sweet side. *Cringe* Oh don’t worry, the story has all the juicy stuff, a hot sexy couple, spankings and of course a villain who is oh so attractive but slimy as a slug. The hero, my, my, he’s very nice to look at, even if he is a touch too dominating. He is exactly the sort of man you’d want around if your life were in danger.
Now getting back to the cupcake thing, the anthology is more like this. An assortment of yummy stories from talented authors and the heat levels in this book will go from toasty warm to sizzling hot! So don’t be afraid of not finding your favorite um…flavor. It’s in there. What’s your desire?
I’d like to mention a couple other important facts. One is that the proceeds from the Hero Undercover Anthology are going to be donated to charities: The National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund and Copline, a hotline for officers.
The second important thing is that the amazing price of $.99 won’t last long once the book goes live. It will go to $6.99. Now that’s still a bargain, but let’s face it, that six dollars would buy you a cupcake or two.
So, what are you waiting for? A super sexy collection of hot stories by 25 of the bestselling authors in the genre, a price of $.99 and a donation to help those who Protect and Serve. If that's not enough to convince you, check out this trailer!
