Blog Tour: Megan Erickson's DIRTY THOUGHTS and a Giveaway!



About DIRTY THOUGHTS

Some things are sexier the second time around
Cal Payton has gruff and grumbly down to an art...all the better for keeping people away. And it usually works. Until Jenna Macmillan—his biggest mistake—walks into Payton and Sons mechanic shop all grown up, looking like sunshine, and inspiring more than a few dirty thoughts.

Jenna was sure she was long over the boy she'd once loved with reckless abandon, but one look at the steel-eyed Cal Payton has her falling apart all over again. Ten years may have passed, but the pull is stronger than ever...and this Cal is all man.

Cal may have no intention of letting Jenna in, but she's always been his light, and it's getting harder to stay all alone in the dark. When a surprise from the past changes everything, Cal and Jenna must decide if their connection should be left alone, or if it's exactly what they need for the future of their dreams.


About MEGAN ERICKSON
Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5’5” on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf.

She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction.

She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.

Excerpt: The Scarf by Christina June

I spotted Darcy sitting in the back row of the first section of seats. Her bare legs were crossed and one foot bounced in the aisle, almost impaling my thigh with her black stiletto heel. “How you doing, Darce?” It took her a second to register I was speaking to her. “Oh, hi Em. I’m okay. Just nervous.” “Obviously.” I pushed past her and took the next seat over from the aisle. “You don’t have anything to be worried about, though. You know he’s got this in the bag.” Darcy shook her head and pulled her long auburn ponytail over her shoulder. “No, I know. I’m not worried about that. I’m just nervous that the end of the election won’t be the end of Omar’s bad moods.” I made a sympathetic pout. “Still rough?” In all the tine I’d known him, Omar seemed to have a perpetual positive attitude. But in the weeks since the election began, he had become agitated and even abrasive, especially toward Darcy. She’d called me more than once late at night, baffled about where his paranoia was coming from.

  The Return - Cover

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iBooks ** Booksamillion

THE RETURN Synopsis: The Fates are cackling their bony asses off... It's been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they've given him have been violent and bloody--which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He's got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet. Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy's deal might be, but it's a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her. But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all. Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.
