Day 13 of Love….with Eliza and Tracey

Post navigation

 YES! After waking up at 2 AM with a killer headache I almost forgot to blog today!!!

So without further ado, our winner for yesterday is……..#3 DONYA!!!!!!! Please email me at amie at and let me know which Steph Tyler Blaze you’d prefer. 

Not only is today our 13th day of love………it’s FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH!!!  Ok before I get on with today’s blog post I have to tell ya’ll a funny story. Sorry to those of you who have heard this. So a few weeks ago we’re watching TV and a commercial comes on for the new Friday the 13th movie (drool Jared Padelecki!) and you hear the mom say in that creepy voice that “it’s her son’s birthday.” And number one son, in the most serious tone of voice says, “I want to go see that and take a cake.”

I say, “Why?”

He says, “So when the mom says it’s Jason’s birthday we can all stand up and sing.”


The things I put up with–anyway, how do you feel about remakes of cult classics like Friday the 13th? OMG Freddy Kreuger (Nightmare on Elm Street) turns 25 in October–I feel so old!!!! Do you love or hate the remakes? What’s your favorite scary movie?

And since it’s…you know….Friday the 13th, are you superstitious? Most writers I know are…at least a little bit–we never query during Mercury Retrograde. What about you? Very superstitious….or no?

Today’s giveways include a print copy of Tracy Wolff’s Full Exposure (NAL Heat) and a copy* of Surrender: tales of erotic submission from Eliza Gayle!  As well as your choice from my Aphrodisia backlist or any ebook (Please note I do NOT have e-copies of my Aphro titles–just Dancehall Diaries: LYnette and Once in a Blue Moon).


Sex and suspense steam up the sultry bayou in a bold debut from a sizzling new voice in erotic fiction.

Closing herself off from a traumatic past, photographer Serena Macafee likes sex with no strings attached- no commitment, just pure pleasure. Her new subject, sculptor Kevin Riley, is the perfect man to fulfill her hottest fantasies. Where better than the torrid wetlands of Baton Rouge where Riley works-and plays? But as their sessions heat up, so do Serena’s intimate feelings for Kevin. And as her guard breaks down, her fears are aroused.

She’s opening herself up to emotions she never wanted, and making herself vulnerable to a past she thought she’d escaped. One that has followed her to the sweltering Southern bayou, exposing her to the twisted fantasies of someone in the shadows, and to dangers beyond her control. Phaze Bestselling BDSM stories, plus a bonus award-winning short!

Breaking Skye by Eden Bradley: Skye Ballard has always wanted to experience her fantasies of sexual submission. She craves to be commanded, taken over. She is convinced that all it will take to purge this yearning from her system is one night. Skye searches out the perfect Dominant for the job-it must be a man who is powerful, attractive, and naturally dominant. But when she meets Adam Dunne, she finds a man beyond her wildest dreams. Adam convinces her one night will not be enough for what he sees as a process, rather than a single experience. Skye soon discovers that being with him only makes her crave more. And while he begins with the idea of training her to be the perfect submissive-for someone else-soon all he can think of is making her his, making her yield. All he can think of is breaking Skye-and keeping her for himself.

Submissive Secrets by Eliza Gayle: After eight years of searching for him, Carli’s ex-fiancee, Aidan, shows up naked in her bed. Finally she has her chance to show him she regrets leaving him on the eve of their wedding and get him back. But will she have the nerve to tell him the truth about herself and why she ran? Will her childhood sweetheart understand and accept her true needs as a sexual submissive? Forced to return to Carli on a mission, Aidan just wants to get the Intel he needs from her and get the hell out of town. Maybe with this reunion he can rid himself of her once and for all. Until a thorough search of her home unearths some secrets that shock him to the core. Was there more to her abandonment than he thought? With this new information, a plan formulates and he is determined to learn how far she will go when she loses her prized control.

Cupid’s Captive by Reese Gabriel: John Cupid has no use for love. Domination is his thing, carefree flings with willing submissive females who crawl in and out of his bed like clockwork. When he is roped into taking his law partner’s little sister Steffy out for Valentine’s Day, he couldn’t be more annoyed. He expects a night of baby sitting, but Steffy is all grown up now and she knows what she wants–a chance to be tied down and ravished in the bed of the man she used to call Uncle John. John tries to resist, but the little beauty proves to be the perfect slave for him. Could it be he is about to be hit by one of his name sake’s infamous arrows?

Don’t forget to comment to win. And remember tomorrow is the last day of the giveaways–Not only am I giving away my backlist…but an ebook from my good friends Karen Erickson (note to self: email Karen for title) and a copy of Wild Wild West from the lovely and uber-awesome Charlene Teglia!!!!

*The Book from Eliza Gayle is PRINT–I corrected this. My bad!

  1. Well I figure they can only improve upon the classics LOL I barely remember Friday the 13th..but I probably wouldn’t watch the original because it be so cheesy. We will see what they can do with the remake. 25 years for Nightmare on Elm Street….ugh….feeling kinda old.

  2. My favorite scary movie is Silence of the Lambs. 🙂

    I like psychological thrillers rather than horror movies. The thrillers tend to scare me more than the horror movies. 🙂

  3. Larena….I totally agree! but sometimes you need a little gore–though I don’t like most of today’s slasher flicks–too misogynistic for my taste

  4. I don’t like Slasher movies or really gory stuff. Give me a good murder mystery to read any day.

  5. Nice topic! I love scary movies! Always have! I remember having a sleepover and watching a scary movie as a kid when the door flew open and there was a man standing there. It was all on the level, but how amazing is that? It scared the crap out of me at the time. LOL

    I like to see them make remakes of the oldies. There’s so much more they can do with special effects these days that they couldn’t then. Don’t get me wrong, I do love me some 70’s and 80’s horror flicks though. Those were the days. *sigh*


  6. I don’t watch scary movies. I won’t be seeing this, and I have not seen the previous ones.
    I watched American Werewolf in London when I was 4-5. My 17yr old brother brought it home to watch. He didn’t kick me out of the room!
    I had nightmares for 2 years!!!!
    And no, I am not superstitious. I actually enjoy Friday the 13th, and we have TWO of them in a row! Woot!

  7. My favorite scary movie is “The Exorcist.” I’m pretty superstitious and try not to walk under ladders and other things that might bring bad luck.

  8. My favorite scary movie has to be “Scream”. I love that today is Friday the 13th. I have always thought of it as a lucky day and pretty pumped up that we will be getting back to back Friday the 13ths!!!

  9. I’m with Larena, Silence of the Lambs. Nightmare on Elm Street can’t be 25… I can’t be that old! 🙂

  10. I can’t watch horror movies they freak me out.
    I’m not real superstitious I recieved a big promotion on one Friday the 13th

  11. I am quite superstitious but in a totally different way than most.. too much for this blog-post… but 7 & 13 are my fav numbers.

    And I love murder mysteries, hate slashers & PLEASE can they leave the classics alone? Most were better the 1st time around & only a very few improved w/ re-make. So… that’s my opinion.

    Happy 13th day of Love! Love the cover of Tracey’s book!

  12. I prefer to watch thrillers instead of gory horror movies. And my favorites are Memento, The Game and The Usual Suspects.

  13. I laughed at The Exorcist, and Poltergeist. I prefer the old horror movies where they used the juxaposition of shadow and light – the atmosphere. My favorite is the original version of The Haunting. The remake was God-awful, they ruined it totally. I can only think of one remake that I preferred over the original, so I would say that, as a whole, I’m not a lover of remakes.

  14. I would so love to win this contest today. Okay, now on to my answer! I had nightmares for days about Silence of the Lambs. Didn’t like the sequels.

    When will Hollywood leave the classics alone? The Exorcist is so good, why remake it?

    Not too superstitious about 13th or stuff like that. Today was a lucky one for me since I got called to sub! Made some extra money for books!

  15. I’m not a big slasher movie fan, didn’t care for the Friday the 13th series either. I wouldn’t say I’m very suspicious either. You’re giving away such fun books to read!

  16. I don’t like horror movies so I change the channel when the commercials come on for the new Friday the 13th movie.

    I’m a little superstitious but not to the point where I won’t leave the house or expect bad things to happen today.

  17. I amn a little superstitious but only in terms of carrying charms with me everywhere. W ho knows, they may work.


  18. I’ve seen some remakes that were OK, but sometimes you just shouldn’t mess with the classics. If the special effects are greatly improved, that’s a point in their favor. 🙂

    I wouldn’t consider myself superstitious, but I do knock on wood often. Mostly to emphasize my point though, not because I think it does anything. *g*
