THIS FRIDAY, September 11, 2015,

Please come meet Gracie, check out thr book.

View the original art Mary did for the book and more.   

You can even gift your pride and joy (or someone else's) with a handmade dog coat (Mary loves to make dog coats, but please don't bring your dog--just his or her measurements!) 

If you live too far to party in Bay City, you can find the book or order a custom-fit coat on Mary Blocksma's Beaver Island Arts Etsy page.

I have been a fan of Mary Blocksma for years.  I've been lucky to visit her studio, hold inspirational conversations and even party with her! 

Many of her watercolors of Lake Michigan and Michigan wild life grace my walls. She is a wonderful writer, a talented artist and a beautiful person.

#ThursdayThirteen - 13 Fun Sex Facts

While searching the internet for some fun stuff to feature on Monday Mojo, I found these fun facts I had to share. I admit to trying a few... not telling which though.

1.  Snuggle with him while watching TV at night. Couples who cuddle regularly are eight times less likely to get depressed than those who kiss only during intercourse.

2. Athletic women say their sexual performance is better...

3.  ...and maybe that’s because female pro athletes have both better clitoral blood flow and higher sexual satisfaction than women who don’t exercise.

4.  Furthermore, one study found that just 20 minutes of exercise before going at it will improve your sexual response.

5.  Take time to really figure out your feelings—it could help you in the bedroom. See, women with high emotional intelligence experience more orgasms.

6.  Almost 53 percent of women have used external stimulation. If you haven’t tried it, start with a small one that won’t overwhelm you.

7.  A study of college students found that over a two-year period, both men and women had twice as many hook-ups as first dates.

8.  Worldwide, only 30 percent of men are circumcised. Dating an uncut guy? Keep in mind that the tip of his penis may be more sensitive because it’s not always exposed. So you may need to use a slightly more gentle touch.

9.  Having sex once a week can improve your immune function by 30 percent.

10.  A woman has a better shot at climaxing during sex if the walls of her vaginal canal are stimulated. A study found that penis length doesn’t help accomplish this—girth does. Make him feel girthier by keeping your legs together during sex. It creates more friction.

11.  Still, that doesn’t stop men from seeking out enhancements. A handful of new gadgets on the market claim to help men add length and possibly girth to their penis.

12.  If that doesn’t work, he can try dropping a few kilos. For every 16 kilos an overweight man loses, his penis appears to grow one inch.

13.  Scientists believe that some women have a more active G-spot than others. Trying various positions, like leaning back while you’re on top, may help him stimulate it if yours isn’t as active.

Taming Rachel is currently in edits. As soon as I get a cover I'll share. In the meantime, enjoy a nice view of Dustin Stiles. He's a larger than life hottie who uses a blindfold and a silk scarft to convince his lady to take a chance on love... forever.

#TuesdayTeaser from Crow Magic

Birds chattering pulled her from sleep. She wiggled under the cozy comforter to steal one more moment of utter bliss before rubbing her face to wake up. Pushing flyaway hair past her ears, Lucy opened her eyes and stretched. Arriving late the night before, she’d unpacked then gone straight to bed. Her best friend had convinced her to try Madame Eve’s 1Night Stand, and now miles from home, she lay in the Rose Cabin on Cherry Lane, a private but exquisite cottage at the Castillo Resort in the Poconos Mountains.

She took a deep breath and rose to the beauty of a new day and the possibilities of the coming evening. Sunlight dappled the floors of her cabin. Finding the long terry robe the resort supplied, she pulled it on then pulled back the cream-colored curtains to allow the morning radiance to enter and spread its cheerfulness. The delicate scent from the white roses in a vase on the nightstand mingled with the pine and cedar cabin. She picked up a card next to the flowers.

May you discover the magical power of the mountains and their crystal clear waters.
May the life force of the woods stir your soul.
May you learn from the spirit of the crow.
Tecumseh will help you fly if you believe in him.
Madame Eve

He had only one name. Not Bob, or Roger, but Tecumseh, and without doubt, Native American. Names held power and his name sounded powerful. What kind of person had the name Tecumseh? Was he a real man, a shaman or a spirit?

“Enough worrying about tonight, time to enjoy the day.” She adjusted the sheets of the Queen Ann bed and smoothed the antique quilt bright with turquoise and shades of fuchsia. An impressive painting of a floral meadow and a large tree near a lake hung on the wall and she made a mental note to explore outside to discover if the meadow was local. She gazed at the bed, wondering what the night would bring and shuddered with anticipation.

Crow Magic Blurb:
Lucy Richards is tired of being timid around men. Hoping to overcome her fears and feel like a real woman, she turns to Madame Eve to find a man who will fulfill that goal. Eve arranges a one-night stand with a handsome Shawnee shaman who will teach Lucy to use her womanly power and take her to unimaginable heights.

Shape shifter Seth Crowe is a Keeper of the Spiritual Law who carries souls from darkness to light, and enjoys using his body to accomplish his magic.

Tucked away in the Castillo Poconos Resort, Seth helps Lucy find spiritual and sexual freedom, never dreaming he might find his own mate in the bargain.
