Tour: Go Deep by Juniper Bell (Guest Post & Giveaway)

T.G.I.F. You'll! Please welcome author Juniper Bell of Go Deep, joining us on her blog tour for a post about winter and even a giveaway! 

Where I live in Alaska, winter is well on its way. It’s beginning to frost overnight and we’ve had to scrape the windshield a couple times. Granted, winter starts early here and lasts a loooooong time. Pretty soon, we’ll have several feet of snow and only a few hours of light .

So to help myself face the prospect of all those months of cold and darkness, I decided to focus on the positive aspects of winter. You know, the things I like about it.

1.      Skiing.

Nice try, but the last time I did any downhill skiing I shredded my ACL. Now it’s cross-country only, and I’m nervous about that too.

2.      Hot chocolate by a roaring fire.

Now we’re getting somewhere. Chocolate always works. But that fire? When you have to chop down the tree, chainsaw it into rounds, then split those logs into firewood with a maul, that fire represents a lot of hard work.

3.      Long nights perfect for writing.

Yes, but they’re also perfect for sleeping. I always get lots of good, deep sleep once winter sets in. I’m keeping my fingers crossed about the writing.

4.      The Wild Nights winter festival. During this crazy midwinter weekend, the town of Wild operates by one rule: “Anything goes, nothing counts.” It’s a way to let off steam. Like Las Vegas with snow.

Sadly, this festival is completely fictional and exists only in my series set in Wild, Alaska. GO DEEP is the second book in this series. Sure, Beth and Gavin have a great time exploring their sexual fantasies during Wild Nights … but I’m unable to attend that event except in my imagination.

5.      Christmas.

Definitely a good one. I love Christmas, especially when I’ve finished my shopping early and I’m not six years behind on my Christmas cards and I’m not worried about making meals for anyone and … okay, what else?

6.      Sexy long underwear.

Yes, I know that’s a contradiction in terms. But I’m getting desperate here. There must be something to like about winter!

7.      Upcoming trip to Hawaii


What about you? What do you like about winter? Help me out here. ;-) If you leave me a comment with something you like about winter, I’ll put you in the running for a copy of GO DEEP and a $5 Amazon gift certificate. Thanks for joining me!

Juniper Bell 

 A standalone sequel to Go Wild.
Beth is the shy, dreamy type. No one guesses at the wild sexual thoughts she hides behind that quiet façade. She doesn’t even share her secret longings with her husband.
Gavin loves his wife, but he’s tired of living in a marriage in which neither he nor Beth reveal their true desires. When Gavin sees Beth’s response to an erotic bondage photo in her framing shop, he jumps at the opportunity to break through her barriers.
He accepts an invitation to a showcase match for the amateur hockey team he coaches during Wild Nights, the infamous winter festival during which “anything goes, nothing counts.” But he’s opened a sensual Pandora’s box—Beth has some surprises of her own. When she meets Eagle, a free-spirited Wild resident, she knows he’s the perfect man to help enact her erotic fantasies. And once they go deep, there’s no going back.

Juniper Bell lives with her brand new husband in a cabin in Alaska with sporadic running water and a spectacular view of glaciers. She wound up in the frozen north after leaving her career as a stressed-out Los Angeles TV writer. Luckily, her love for writing survived the move, and she soon discovered a surefire way of heating up those long winter nights. She writes erotic romances for Samhain and Ellora’s Cave. She also spends time dreaming of the day she can move to Hawaii.

As Juniper mentioned in her post she is giving away a copy of Go Deep and a $5 Amazon gift card to one lucky reader. To enter, just leave a comment answering her question in this post and fill out the rafflecopter below. Good luck!


  1. What I like about winter is the clear brisk air, the hush after a snow fall, the soft lacey snowflakes that fall so magically, the footprints in the snow that show where an animal passsed by, the joyful sounds of children playing in the snow, ice skating, snow sculptures, the winter Olympics, the Christmas carols being sung, and with anticipation of Christmas people seem to be in better spirits and friendly.

  4. What I love about winter is that I get to wear cute coats!!! I still dream I could dress like the women in Gossip Girl ;)

    P.S. I forgot to mention in the form that I am also a RBtWBC twitter follower: @ariannecruz07

  5. Looks like a great book, thank you for the awesome chance to win!

  6. Oooo Go Deep looks yummy!

    Winter? I don't like much about winter! It's pretty hot here in the summer and our winters are mild, so my favorite thing is being able to wear a coat and long sleeves with some sexy knee-high boots! =)

  7. What do I like about winter? I like homemade soups and curling up on the couch with a blanket and a good book (and some sort of drink to keep you warm).
    The book looks good. I am going to have to check out the first book. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  8. I don't like winter. It is too cold and I hate driving in the snow and ice. Please enter me in contest.

  9. I live in Wisconsin so we get bad winters I like the snow if I don't have to go out in it! This sounds like a great book thank you for the great giveaway!

  10. I hate the winter. I live where the ice loves to torture me. I am already anticipating the spring.


  11. What is there not to love about winter?!? I LOVE winter, my favorite season. The crisp clean smell of snow, the crunch of it under your boots, the sound of snow falling on evergreens, the cold making your face tingle then coming inside and feeling the warmth and smelling something baking in the oven. Curling up with a good book under a cuddly warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate nearby. I could go on and on =)

    what better book to curl up with on a cold winter day than one about Alaska?! Thanks for the chance to win a copy!

  13. Sounds to me like Dreamy Beath is in for a wild ride. Also like the cover for the book. It has a nice winter feel to it.

  14. What I think about winter...I have mixed feelings. I like the snow but hate the ice. I think there is something to be said for the beauty of falling snow. I just don't like the havoc it cause on the roads.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  15. Hey y'all, thanks for all the great reasons to love winter! And thanks for the kind words about Go Deep. Thank you for stopping by and thanks to Reading Between the Wines for hosting me on this fantastic blog!

    Hey, mulled wine ... that's something to love about winter. ;-)

  16. Your book looks great! It doesn't snow much here in the winter, so I admit to liking it when it happens... I like snuggling under warm blankets, nice and cozy.

  18. What do I love about winter...well I live in Phx, AZ so our winters are paradise compared to other snow-filled areas...I love our winters and just cannot imagine living somewhere where it snows. Last winter I had to travel to the DC are for work and it snowed, you never saw more anxiety than from this Phoenician ;-0


  19. I live in Wisconsin and I should probably not like the whole "digging out" thing, but I love it when we get major snowstorms and everything around just stops. There aren't any cars on the road, just huge blankets of snow. There's nothing to do but settle in under some blankets and read a book or catch up on some shows on the DVR.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  20. I like snuggling under a warm rug, with a hot chocolate in one hand and a great book in the other.


  21. I gotta say-there isn't much I like about winter except that it means spring will be following. But things that make winter bearable are steaming mugs of hot chocolate, cozy fleece blankets while curling up in a recliner with a good book and the quiet that the time brings (aside from the ever present hum of the snow blowers).

  22. I'll definitely be reading about Beth and Gavin. Loved the excerpt.
    Truthfully, I can't stand Winter. It's too cold, too icy and it makes me miserable. lol But I do Love the Holidays during Winter, the smell of winter food like Beef Stew, corn bread and home made soups. And what's more beautiful then a beautiful evening and in the moonlight you see beautiful snowflakes falling. Thanks for the post and the opportunity.

  23. Hi
    what I love about winter?
    having the chance to be near a fireplace reading a book
    thanks for the interview and giveaway

  24. Hmm, winter. Well I love that it's not hot, because despite the fact that I live in Australia, and there are like awesome beaches and stuff, I'm not really a summer person. And I love the feeling when you go somewhere warm, with heaters and layers of blankets and just get super warm, knowing that it's really cold out. Thanks!


  25. This sounds really good,Thank you for the chance to win:)

  26. What I love about winter is waking up to see all the trees snow covered. I love making snow angels and snowman with my little guy. I love hot chocolate (with a little rum added) and I love winter hats..the crazier the happier I am (i can't really wear them in summer).

  27. I like the first decent snow of the season, it's so beautiful. I like temps in the upper 20's and above over temps 80 and above in the summer. otherwise, I'm a fall/spring kinda gal.

  28. I love winter because i get to snuggle up to my sweetie and keep warm. Thanks for the giveaway!


  29. This sounds like it will be a wonderful book to read. I'm not much of a winter fan because I hate cold and I can't drive in the snow.

  30. Really liked the guest post! Alaska and Finalnd have few things together so I can relate. ;)

  31. I think I was born in the wrong country, you know? I just LOOOVE winter! Those dark, cloudy days, always cool weather, no sweat, yummy food, cozy beds and comfy clothes... what's not to like? But I guess I like it so much because we only have it for about a couple of months here... and, no, unfortunately snow is not something to look forward here... damn, you, tropical country! :P

    the book sounds VERY interesting, and quite hot! I'm sure they can melt the snow in it. LOL
