Forever Romance Tour: BLAME IT ON TEXAS by Christie Craig (Feature/Giveaway)

Today I am happy to be a part of Forever Romance's tour for Christie Craig's new release, Blame It On Texas!

Ten Things You Will Learn from Blame it on Texas.

1. Guys don’t like to play dress up; but when one willingly dresses as a clown for their six-year-old niece’s birthday party—because the real clown canceled—he’s one special uncle.  And could possibly make a special hero for some lucky lady.

2. Sometimes, fear itself can do much more damage to us than the thing we’re actually afraid of.

3. Any man who doesn’t cuss up a blue streak when you dump a plate of hot grits on him can’t be all bad.  (In fact, he might just be The One.)

4. It’s important to remember the lessons of the past so we can use them when making decisions for the future.  But those lessons should never keep us from having the future we deserve.

5. Before accusing the sexy guy who pounced, knocked you down, and crawled on top of you of being foreplay impaired; check to see if someone is shooting at you.

6. The southern delicacy of a banana and mayonnaise sandwich may be an acquired taste, especially when a hungry hero chomps down on the delicacy and is expecting ham and cheese.

7. If you think getting caught screaming and dancing on top of a mattress—all while attempting to rescue your cat from an overzealous dog—can be slightly embarrassing, try doing it while you’re wet from the shower, and as naked as a jay bird.  Oh, and just to make it even more fun, make sure you're caught by your possible love interest who hasn’t seen you naked yet, and  . . . (yes it can get worse) his two best friends.

8. It’s downright amazing how playing a few rounds of Strip Scrabble can spice up an evening.

9. A family doesn’t always have to be the people who share your bloodline; sometimes, the best families are those we make when we gather together all the people we love.

10. Learning to trust yourself is usually a lot harder than trusting another person.  But both are generally required before finding true love.

Blame It On Texas (Hotter In Texas #2)
Zoe Adams has always been content with her quiet nights at home, watching TV alone-until her life turns into a real-life episode of Unsolved Mystery Hunters. The story of a kidnapped girl triggers unexplained memories, and Zoe is dead-set on figuring out why. Her search leads her to one of the Lone Star State's richest families-and to sexy PI Tyler Lopez.
Tyler has sworn off women, especially redheads with killer curves who poke their noses into his clients' private lives. Still, he can't deny the attraction any more than he can deny that some of Zoe's crazy story makes sense. But when she becomes a hit man's target, this cold case starts heating up. Suddenly, Tyler will do anything to protect Zoe-even risk his heart.

  1. It doesn't seem that weird to me, but I eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches all the time and people always give me strange looks when I tell them what I'm eating.

  2. Howdy,

    Christie Craig here. I just wanted to pop in and say a huge thank you for posting my list and hosting a contest. And what an honor to share the day with Robin Kaye, one of my favorite authors. I hope everyone will enjoy Blame it on Texas. Here's to love, laughter, and little murder.

  3. One of the weirdest sandwiches I've tried was a tongue sandwich. It was disgusting. Never again.
    This book sounds fantastic. Can't wait to read it.

  4. I can't say that I have ever eaten any weird sandwiches.. Well maybe Bologna with mayo on them is about the wierdiest I have eaten... My mom now she liked peanut butter and lettuce sandwhiches, which she ate when she was pregnant with my brother Michael, to whom this day eats peanut butter as a food staple...

  5. The weirdest sandwich I ever got in my lunch bag was a tongue sandwich, needless to say I didn't eat lunch that day so I couldn't tell you what it tasted like. The weirdest sandwich I've ever actually eaten would be a tuna sandwich with mayonnaise, pickle relish, mushrooms and cheese, yummy. :D

  6. ooh gosh weirdest sandwich.. well, it might seem weird, but I have a friend from Wales who said his fave sandwich is a cheese and onion sandwich, so Ione day I tried it. I went into the kitchen and made it. And OMG it was soooo good. it helps that I <3 onions lol. you can eat it cold or you can toast it in the oven, I personally love my toasted. melted cheese is amazing! and fattening, but who cares, right?! ^_^

    ahhh I just about laughed at everything on the "Ten Things You Will Learn from Blame it on Texas" hilarious! I am absolutely looking forward to reading this series! The trailer.. WOW. awesome! Def made me want to pick up all three books.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway <3


  7. ooh the link to like Christie's fb page wasn't working. But I logged in on fb and found her page and liked it :)

  8. I would say tomato sandwich with mayo and salt and pepper.

  9. probably the cream cheese with marschino cherries that a friend of mine used to like.

  10. None of the sandwiches I like seem weird to me. I used to have a difficult time ordering veggie sandwiches, but now I can find them on more menus.

  11. Hey...

    I love the weirdest sandwich theme, guys. And tomato and mayo is not weird. That's wonderful. LOL. You got with liverwurst. Ugg. And cream cheese and cherries? Not my things. Thanks again for posting my list.


  12. The weirdest sandwich would be a peanut butter and mayo sanwich. My brother always used to eat them. It was disgustung. Never again.
