Awright - Let's get this party started!!! Please welcome Ms. Katie Reus for the kick-off of BBPR Smitten with Film and Music. What yummy does she have in store for us..........
Thanks so much for letting me blog here during Smitten with Film and Music!
Music is a form of poetry and while I’m not a huge fan of poetry, I love music. It has the power to change my mood, which is often a good thing. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of nursery rhymes (new baby in the house!) but in the mornings I usually go for a jog/walk and I ALWAYS bring my iPod along. On my current play list you’ll find artists such as Foster the People, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Fitz and the Tantrums, Macy Gray, Breaking Benjamin…and I could go on forever. I like to have a mix of everything, but when walking I usually keep it upbeat until that final stretch where I’m warming down.
Music, just like reading/books, is so subjective. And thank God for that. What one person might consider the sexiest song alive might be like fingernails on a chalkboard to someone else. When Artemis let me know that the theme for the next couple of days was Smitten with Film & Music, I knew music would be my topic of choice.
When I think of sexy music, there is one man that immediately comes to mind. Marvin Gaye. I’m completely smitten with his voice. It’s like pure sex and if I could bottle it up, I totally would. Let’s Get It On is one of my all-time favorite songs. There is nothing subtle about that song. The lyrics are so in-your-face sex and when I hear it, I can’t help but want to dance just a little (or a lot). With lyrics like: ‘Let's love, baby, Let's get it on, sugar’, ‘I'm askin' you, baby to get it on with me’, and ‘If the spirit moves you, let me groove you good’ that song is just plain sexiness. It’s an older song, but to me it will always be a classic.
I tried to find a good video with Marvin Gaye but could only find one with the lyrics. And really, all I’m interested in is the lyrics and his voice anyway!
While Marvin Gaye has a voice I’m absolutely smitten with, there are two other men who have voices with the ability to make me melt. They’re not musicians (that I know of) but Mike Rowe & Sean Connery also have delicious voices. Yum!
What about you? What song when you hear it makes you want to melt? Or, ahem, ‘dance’? One reader who comments on the blog today will be randomly selected to win a print copy of Alpha Instinct (US eligible only), the first book in my new paranormal series. Good luck and thanks so much for stopping by!
Alpha Instinct official blurb:
Ana Cordona has been a strong leader for the lupine shifters who survived after all the males and most of the females in her pack were mysteriously poisoned. As tough as she is, with no Alpha male, the pack is vulnerable to the devious shifter Taggart, who wants to claim both their ranch and Ana as his own. When Connor Armstrong comes back into her life, promising protection, it’s almost enough to make Ana forget how he walked out on her before—and reluctantly accept his offer to mate.
The minute Connor sees Ana again, it reawakens a raw hunger. He must have her for his bondmate—his wolf cries out for it. But his human side knows he must proceed with caution because of their complicated past. If he is to truly have her body and soul, he must go beyond his burning desire and win back her heart. Whatever it takes, he is determined not to leave her side again.
But Taggart and his rival pack are not their only enemies. A human element in town is targeting shifters. Their plan not only threatens Ana and Connor’s future, but the lives of the entire pack…
A little about me: I’ve been reading romance since a young age—ever since I discovered my mom’s hidden stash. Luckily the addiction stayed with me into adulthood. I write paranormal romance and sexy romantic suspense for Carina Press, Harlequin Nocturne, and NAL/Signet Eclipse.
