Lola Holds Court and Dishes about Hildie McQueen

The Princess
Hello Fuzzy Friday!  My name is Lola "The Princess" Chew, and I am  taking over today to discuss my momma, romance writer Hildie McQueen and tell you about myself. *Woof*

What is my momma currently reading?
She is reading Sex, Lies and Lipstick by Kris Calvert, she likes to read contemporary romance, which is silly since she, mostly writes historical. But she's not always smart, always buys me the wrong treats, which I spit at her.

What is the most recent thing I did to get in trouble?
I admit it, I poo'd in her and Daddy's bedroom.  To be fair, it was raining outside and they poo inside, so why is it such a big deal when I do?

What are my observations of Momma's writing?
She writes throughout the day.  On some days she goes with Daddy and I on our daily walk, but sometimes she says.  "Please take that barking thing out." I don't think she's talking about me.  My brother Pepito is always barking with me and he has an annoying bark. When we get back from our walk, she is still sitting at the same spot, typing away at her computer thing. Boring!

What is Momma writing now?
She is writing a book about a Highlander.  The fourth book in her Highlander series. This one is titled Highlander, The Storm.  Then she's writing a new western historical series that she is really excited about.  I wonder if there are any doggies in those?  I'll have to find out.

What is my Momma's latest release and why should you read it?
The Last Hero is the second book in her Fords of Nashville series.  There is no doggie in the second book, but it's still good. If you ask me, it would be better with a Chihuahua in it.  Here is a snippet she gave me to share with you.

All this blogging wore Lola out!
Excerpt from The Last Hero

In the distance a bell rang and Cassie considered how appropriate to hear chimes at the precise moment her legs wrapped around his waist. He lifted back, his eyes half closed. "I think your oven is ringing."
"What?" It took a few seconds before the words made sense. She wasn't sure, but he may have repeated it twice. "Oven?"
By the time she realized she was sitting on the counter and a moment ago had her legs wrapped around a man in plain view from any passerby, Jensen had donned oven mitts and was pulling overly browned cakes from the oven. He placed them both on the counter with smooth moves of someone used to being in the kitchen. When he pulled the second pan, he set it next to the first. "There, they look fine don't you think?"
Cassie stared at him with rounded eyes. "I don't like you. I'm not sure what just happened."
The one shoulder shrug didn't tell her anything, so Cassie grabbed his arm and turned him to face her. "I mean it. I'm not sure what that was all about."
Jensen lifted a brow, his darkened eyes traveled down her body. "Women like bragging rights. You're probably no different."
"What the hell is that supposed to mean?" Cassie slammed her hand down on the counter, which hit the edge of the pan sending hot cupcakes askew, a few landing on the floor. She ignored them and glared at Jensen. "I'm not a groupie."
"You just said you don't know what happened. You don't like me." Jensen's voice was neutral, a blank expression on his face. He looked down at her, and there was a hard, icy edge to his voice. "It happens to me all the time. It's enjoyable sometimes."
Her hands curled into fists. She had to hold back the urge to slap the look of disdain from his face. "You came here, behind the counter, so don't put it all on me."
"I'm not. Just helping you figure out why you threw yourself at someone you claim not to like." He walked around her and straight out the front door.
"What the hell just happened?" Cassie glared at the doorway. Perhaps she shouldn't have said she didn't like him after humping him like a bitch in heat. "Ugh!" She picked up a cupcake and took a big bite only to spit it out when it burned her tongue. Outside a motorcycle rumbled to life and she saw Jensen ride by and head out of town.
The bell over the door jingled and woman with arms full of shopping bags walked in. "It's hot in here."
"You have no idea." Cassie turned to see the oven door was still open.

Book Blurb - The Last Hero

Mega star Jensen Ford returns to his home state of Tennessee, to film a blockbuster film. Although the pretty local bakery owner catches his eye, she could never survive his Hollywood lifestyle. His mind knows its best to keep her at arms length, but how to convince his heart?

Cassie Tucker doesn't like arrogant Jensen Ford, definitely doesn't want to get to know him either. With a cupcake shop to run, an ex harassing her and her younger brother moving in, she doesn't have time for the movie star's antics.

Is it fate or happenstance that they end up alone together time after time?
