Words & Music Monday WVMP blog and giveaway!

Welcome to LUST FOR LIFE's release week! The first stop is at Books Make Me Happy book blog, where I take part in their regular feature, Words and Music Monday.

Today I'm discussing the titles of the books, which are all named after songs. How did I choose them? How do they reflect the journey of the main character, recovering con artist Ciara Griffin? How sexy is the video for Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game"? (Answer: ALL the sexy.)

I'm also giving away a signed copy of any WVMP novel (winner's choice) to one commenter. International entries welcome! Deadline: December 2.

Check back tomorrow for my own blog post, a look back at five years, four novels, one novella, and five short stories. Nostalgia time! *wipes bittersweet tear*
