About Me

My photo
I love romance and writing it is one of my greatest pleasures. Along with writing romance, I love sitting back and talking with authors that love romance just as much as I do. Since I've been reading romance since I was sixteen years old I am a book lover that still reads lots of books in a month. So, weekly I will also post my book picks. They may be picks that are new releases or maybe a favorite book of mine. On this blog you will see books featured by ALL romance genres.

I'm finished!!!!

Hello Everyone,

Phew! I am so happy to be done with my two Christmas shorts for this year. Life has been so busy between family and finishing my degree I got nervous that I wouldn't be able to bring my readers holiday fun. Well, the season was looming before us and my MUSE refused to let me rest. When I started writing one story, she pushed me toward the next. LOL! When I bowed to the pressure. Unlike most years when I only give you one short, I'm giving you two this year... yea! The first story is called Bet on a Mistletoe and the other is Ho, Ho, Ho and a Dom. They are IR and packed with lots of sexy scene. You all know I like writing them hot and full of love. Check back her next week so you can see the delicious cover for Bet on a Mistletoe and blurb.

Keepin it S.A.S.S.E!

Undercover Lover

Hello Everyone,

I know it has been a minute or two since I spoke to your all, but my Master's program is kicking my tail... lol! In a good way. But, I give myself time to do a little writing and sometimes even less reading. But, over the Valentine's month I did allow myself a a great short read, by a rising author name Laura Kitchell called Undercover Lover. I enjoyed the story so much I had to tell you all about it.
Jaeda Bennett is on a new mission, with spike heels on and orders in hand she heads out to meet her mark. Teague Jameson is an assignment like no other and to make her fall for him may cause her to go undercover as his lover. In a world where truth is what you make it and concealing ones motives is paramount, Jaeda can't seem to hide much from Teague's penetrating gaze. She has one fear, if he continues to look deep he will not only discover her covert operations but everything in her heart as well. A night in his estate is supposed to reveal his secrets, not send her tumbling in his arms. Jaeda soon learns that this new job isn't as easy as she assumed. She never anticipated when trying to get a smart, kind and sexy man to give his heart it may require her to relinquish her own. With sensuality and intrigue Ms. Kitchell has written a short story that will undoubtedly warm the heart of all its readers.
So, if you love contemporary suspense or just in the mood for a good romance read to squeeze into your day... this one is it.

Now, if you all are wondering what is going to be out next for me, it will be another I/r erotic short... since you all love them. This one is celebrating St. Patrick's Day. So, go green and pick up and e-book this month. It will be out by the end of this month. I'll be sure to drop you a line when it is. Maybe our cover artist will design a delicious cover like the one for Holiday Affair.
Until later, Keep it SASSE!

The week of love...

Hello Everyone,

This is the week of love and wouldn't you know it, I feel like giving a little of it. For all of you who already picked up your copy of Coming Together: At Last vol 1, thanks. It was on the top 20 list for my publisher (Phaze). Here is a book that is put together for a good cause. I was happy to be a part of this collection. It was fabulous to join so many other authors that wanted to be a part of it as well. Well, this weekend, hang on to your panties, because Yvette is going to give you a treat. If you recall The Marriage Clause, my full length erotic novel. I am doing a follow-up story featuring Liza and Tyler. It is an erotic short for Valentine's Day. It should be out this weekend. I will let you know once it is out on All Romance eBooks for purchase. Keep a look out on the blog as well, because you know I'll give a copy away. ;)
Now, for those of you who maybe reading this entry and haven't had a chance to pick up a copy of CT:At Last due to financial stress of a booming recession or because of other obligations. I understand.
Or if you picked up a copy but wanted to get one for a friend who might be having a hard time. Here is your chance. Drop me an e-mail and an eCopy is yours. Yup, all you have to do is put It's time to come together in the subject head.
The first three people get it.

Keepin' it S.A.S.S.E!

Romantic Suspense

Okay Everyone,

I am not normally the type of reader who enjoys romantic suspense. I love suspense movies, but not books, because honestly I will flip to the end and rush to see what happened and if I was right in my earlier assumptions.
But, I picked up Aliyah Burke's book Sin is not a Four Letter Word. I have reader several of AB's books in the past and enjoyed them. So, I thought well, this book is a different genre of romance, but I'll try it. Can I say I loved this book twenty times and you all believe me? I loved it. The heroine (Sinjin)in the book is kick ass, like it is nobody's business and boy does she have reason to be. She's got a chip on her shoulder as big as the iceberg that took out the Titanic and a wall around her heart like the Great Wall of China. Now, the hero (Mace)is struggling with emotions of betrayal and righting a wrong from the past, but he has a compelling need for Sin that just won't quit.
This book reads like a good suspense movie. There is always something happening and going on new at each page. But, never to complicated that if you are not a suspense reader you will be confused. Aliyah Burke is a multi-faceted writer that has written a book that is hot, intense and gripping to the end. So, if you haven't read this book or anything by this author...pick it up in eBook or print. You will not be disappointed.

Keeping It S.A.S.S.E!

Hello Everyone,

2009 has start off as an amazing year for Yvette Hines. Yes, little o'le me. First, I discover that my cover One Reckless Night got an Honorable Mention. Then my publisher releases the top five list and I came in number one for December. Than to top it off, I went to All Romance eBooks chat and scrolling down on the first page what do you think I saw. On the top ten list for ARE was Holiday Affair. Can you believe it, I came in number 9. That was one of my items on my wish list. I would look at that list frequently while on the site buying books and think, "One Day I'd love to see my name on there". Well, 7 Jan 09 must be the day. ;)
ARE have a lot of heavy hitters. That site isn't for lightweights or those writers who have thin skin.
For even better news, Coming Together: At Last with my story Shot at Love will be out this month. Volume 1 and 2, with LA Banks doing the forward. I'm in Volume 1. The awesome thing about this book is all proceed go to Amnesty International. That's right!!! You can support a worthy cause by picking up your copy of this book.
So, to all the readers who picked up a copy of Holiday Affair or any other book by Yvette Hines in 2008, I thank you and hope not to disappoint in this new year.

Happy Reading!
Keepin' It SASSE in 2009!!
