Sinfully Sassy Sundays with The Vixen is at Four Seduced Muses

 

 

Hello everyone!

I wanted to remind folks that I do co-host another blog

with three of my fellow Siren authors Maya DeLeina, Nicole Morgan, and May Water. Together we call ourselves Four Seduced Muses. We decided to start a blog that showcases the steamier side of erotic romance and erotica. No topic is really taboo. The point is to make it hot and spicy and for adults only.

To clarify, this forum is definitely not going to be a place for othe

rs to show off their porn sites. We’ve had a few “anonymous” posters trying to get their links up. Usually these end up in our spam folder, but if you happen to see one of the comments that slip through, DON’T click on any of their links and report the comment to one of us and we will have it deleted.

My weekly feature is called Sinfully Sassy Sundays with The Vixen. This week I’m talking about fun foods to incorporate into sex play time. There are many to consider and many to avoid. I didn’t go into the ones to avoid at this time. If you want to have that discussion, we can do it in the comments section either here or there. Suffice it to say, the foods that you are allergic to you should stay away from. Some spices will burn on the skin and shouldn’t be applied to the delicate tissue of your genitalia.

Do your research, talk with your partner about it and above all have fun with it. If you aren’t having fun and enjoying the time with your partner, there is no point in doing it.

Go ahead and check out our blog. We have special guests on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays and the other four days belong to the Muses. We’ve talked about some hot topics so far. Let us know what you think and if there is anything you’d like to see discussed in the future.

Blessed Be

~Tammy

Quinn and Jacob join the #WickedAfterDark Celebration

Welcome to Behind Closed Doors and the Wicked After Dark Halloween Blog Hop. For those of you who’ve visited every day since October 24th, thank you! If this is your first time here, I hope you enjoy what you see and visit the last posts as well as the next few days. You have several opportunities to win the naughty prize package I’ve put together. If you are the lucky winner, you’ll want to be sure you have someone to share the toys with. Sure they can be fun if used alone, but they are SIZZLING if shared.  In case you’re wondering…yes, the package does include batteries! 😉

I’ve had a marvelous time chiming in on the blogs and letting my characters take over too. Well, letting Steve take over may not have been the smartest move on my part, but all in all I still had a nice time with him. I just wish he’d stop telling folks about our past. Sheesh!

Today I have a special treat. We’re headed over to the Island to visit with Quinn and Jake. They’ve spent a bit of time together in paradise. I want to check in with them and see how their doing. Maybe they’ve decided what they’re going to do. For those of you who don’t know their story, let me bring you up to speed. 

These two people have been fated to be together for several lifetimes. Instead of being able to have their happily ever after, both of them have made choices that lead them away from each other. Their hearts continued to long for each other and their souls cried out to The Three to have mercy on them.  The Goddess Fate listened and championed their cause to her brothers, Yeshua and Lucius. Together they agreed it was time these two star-crossed lovers got their happy ending. More importantly to the gods, Quinn and Jacob’s life paths crossed many others. If they didn’t find each other in this lifetime, the paths of the others would be altered as well. There was too much at stake for too many people in this life cycle and the next.

In order for us to travel to the Island, we have to go into a dream state. All you have to do is sit back, relax and let your mind settle.  Clear your mind and leave this world behind. Don’t worry about your bodies. The Guardians will watch over them for us while we visit our heroine and hero.  Go on.  Let yourself go. Listen to the waves hitting the beach. The tide is coming in as the sun is setting. Open your eyes.

We’re here.

Look up the beach. There’s someone waving us over. Is it? Yes! It’s Jake. I hope you all don’t mind. I did send word to them we were coming. I didn’t want to show up to find them…well, you know! 😉

Come on over folks. Quinn and I have a whole barbecue planned for you. She’s inside working on some of the dishes and told me to keep you all entertained for a bit.  My pop was here with Quinn’s brother Danny earlier. He said you had some questions you’d like to ask. Why don’t we start there?

Thank you for agreeing to see us today, Jake. You guys didn’t have to do all of this for us, but to be honest, I’m a bit hungry. Dream walking takes a lot of energy!

LOL! So I’m told. I haven’t tried it yet myself. Quinn will be happy to fill you in on her experience when she joins us.  Come sit by me, Tammy. You and I have a lot of catching up to do.

What do you mean, Mr. Hartley?

Oh, don’t be coy with me. You are the one person who can tell me why I didn’t see the signs sooner about Julia.

You did see them. You just chose to ignore it. I think your heart was yearning so badly for Quinn, that you mistook what you had with Julia for what is destined to be with Quinn. You shouldn’t beat yourself up over it. You only wanted what your parents had, that once in a lifetime love that will never fade. You can have that.

I’m starting to believe it. This place has powerful magic. (his face lights up as Quinn walks through the sliding glass doors holding two large bowls of fruit.) And here’s the most powerful magic around. 

What have you been saying about me out here, Mr. Hartley? (Quinn’s smile lights up her face and her eyes sparkle. I can definitely see why Jacob’s in love with her. She’s stunning!)

He’s just saying the Island has powerful magic. As a Wiccan, I have to agree. You can feel the energy here course through your veins. My skin has been tingling since we arrived. Can you feel it, Quinn?

(she stares into my eyes a moment before slowly nodding.) Yes. It was just a tingle when I first woke up here, but now after spending this time with Jake, it’s like something has reawakened inside of me. I don’t understand it. 

I do. You’ve found your faith again. More importantly, you’ve found your faith in yourself and in your destiny. By the look on both of your faces, It seems we’ve come at the right time. You’ve made your decision haven’t you?

(Quinn places the bowls out on the banquet table and gestures to everyone to dig in. As we start to fill up our plates, she takes Jacob’s hand and holds it to her heart.) Yes we have. The sunrise this morning gave us both the sign we were waiting for. (Jake kisses her lips softly and smiles along with her.)

And?

Now and forever, Tammy. Now and Forever.

Well, how about we leave it at that for today. Join us back here tomorrow when I bring back a very special character from For the Love of Quinn to give his opinion of what has happened for our couple. Don’t forget to visit the other folks in the hop. You still have time to visit the over 200 blogs and get entered in their contests. Make sure you head over to my sister blog Sassy Vixen Publishing. There’s another prize package up for grabs there too. My alter ego, Lia Michael’s takes over the interrogation duties today. You don’t want to miss her guest!

#WickedAfterDark with Brigid Moon from The Island

Brightest Blessing to you all! )O(

My name is Brigid Moon and I guess you could say I had a very special seat watching the journey of two of my favorite people find each other after many lifetimes of being torn apart. You see, I’m not just your average every day psychic. For one, I can actually see into a person’s past and their future. I don’t always know what the hell I’m visualizing, but eventually I can put it all together in order to offer some guidance. Secondly, I can see and talk to dead people, Angels and other spirits including The Three. I’ve been able to do this sort of thing for as far back as I can remember, and believe me I’m not talking about just this life cycle. Let’s just say, I’ve been around the astral plane block a few times. 😉

In this current life, I’ve been able to put my talents and passion for my faith to good use. I am a Wiccan Priestess and have the pleasure of presiding  over many Sabbats and Esbats for the Michigan Covens. Whether one is a member of a coven or a solitary witch, these celebrations are a very large part of who we are. My favorite is Samhein or as many of you know it Halloween. This is the time of year where the veil between the living and the dead is the thinnest. We can honor those who’ve gone before us, welcome their spirits into our homes and our hearts once again, and give thanks for the blessings that have been bestowed upon us throughout the year. In other words, it’s the Witch’s New Year.

My cousins love this time of year two. Unfortunately, one short month after one of the best Samhein celebrations, my cousin Daniel was killed by a drunk driver. Our family was devastated, but no one took it harder than Danny’s sister Quinn. She shut down. I tried to get through to her to let her know I could talk to him, that he wasn’t gone forever. But every time I looked in her eyes, the pain was just too raw. I prayed to the Goddess Fate to give me guidance and expected her to appear to me as she has done from time to time. Imagine my surprise to see one of the other Eternal Siblings…Lucius. Yep. The God of Trials and Tribulations himself stopped in for a chat. Sort of distracting isn’t he? 😉

Shhhhh…don’t answer that. You wouldn’t want to give him any more of an inflated ego than he already has. Trust me. One day I’ll tell you more about my run ins with the Sibling, but for now let’s just concentrate on why he was visiting me this particular time. 

He told me that The Three had decided this was the lifetime Quinn was to find her always and forever, her soul mate, and the one person who she was destined to be with for all eternity. Pretty heavy stuff, huh? Well, hang on to your britches. There is more.

Fate was given permission to directly intervene this time and bring Quinn and her soul mate Jacob Hartley together on the Island, a beautiful tropical paradise where souls go to rest before continuing on with their journey in the Earth Realm, or moving on to the next lifetime. Some folks would call it Limbo, but it’s so much more than that. My cousin Danny along with his new Guardian Angel partner, Michael were given the task to convince Quinn and Jacob that their destiny together was there for the taking. All they had to do was choose to leave the Island and the love they found in each other’s arms and go back to the real world until they found each other again.  

Sounds interesting? You bet it is. Their story is told by author Tammy Dennings Maggy in her Now and Forever series. I am introduced in the second book called…wait for it…The Island (Now and Forever 2) The book is due out on November 15th so keep watching for it. If you want to find out more about Quinn and our family, you can start off with the first book in the series For the Love of Quinn.

 

If you want to see what Daniel is up to this week, stop in on Tammy’s sister blog Sassy Vixen Publishing. For that blog as well as this one, you have chances to win the prize package listed on the first day of this Wicked After Dark Halloween Blog Hop. For Tammy’s blogs, all you have to do is follow the Rafflecopter instructions to get your entries. Now there are over 200 other participants in this hop, so please check out the linky list below to find old and new favorite authors to enjoy. I’ll be back tomorrow with my interview with both Lucius and his sister Lady Fate. You won’t want to miss it!

Video Trailer for The Island (Now and Forever 2)

I’m in the planning stages for a virtual book tour to promote The Island, coming up with a variety of posts, a media kit with all my links, bio, covers and of course the video trailer. Recently I did a blog post for Writer’s Words of Wisdom about creating video trailers. I used the techniques described in it to create my latest video. Even though it took me a while to put it all together the way I wanted it, it really wasn’t hard to do.

Once I collected and purchased all the photos I wanted to use, I listened to the variety of royalty free music I had on my computer from iTunes and from Incompetech.com. The latter is a site put together by Kevin MacLeod. He has hundreds of pieces all for free to use in projects. All you have to do is give him credit somewhere in your work and you are all set. If you can’t or don’t want to give the attribution, you can purchase the music as well. Kevin also offers a service where he will create an original composition for you if you desire.

Well, being on a very tight budget, I of course went for the free music for now. One day I may have to hire Mr. MacLeod to compose something for me, but for now I’ll just enjoy the beautiful pieces he has on his site.  The budget this time around was used to purchase a few more pictures from Shutterstock.com. I found several that just caught my eye immediately. The photos of the Goddess Fate, Michael Hartley, and Daniel Quartermarsh were the most striking. They captured my vision of these characters perfectly! I couldn’t be happier.

For my hero and heroine, I had to try to not get photos that were steamy, but not too risque. I also wanted to give an idea of how I pictured Quinn and Jacob, but didn’t want to make those the only images in the reader’s mind. The fun part is coming up with your own interpretation of the characters as you read their story, and maybe even put yourself in as one of them. During the upcoming Wicked After Dark Blog Hop, I’ll be doing character interviews and posting pictures of the actors who I used as inspiration. There is no right or wrong answer to how someone pictures my characters. I hope the posts generate a lot of discussion. It will be fun for me to see what folks think of my vision versus how they see the characters.

Enough chit chat! Here’s the video you all came here to see. Let me know what you think, and if you have a few moments, please stop by YouTube and view the trailer from there so the view count will go up. And if you can give it a like, I would really appreciate it!

Cover Reveal for The Island (Now and Forever 2)

I’m so excited! While at work today at my evil day job as a veterinarian, I received an email notification on my cell. Imagine my excitement to see an email from Siren today with copies of my new cover. Whoohoo!

The cover artist, Christine Kirchoff, captured what I had in mind for the island at sunset. Even though the model on the cover has blonde hair and I picture Quinn as a brunette, I think the couple looks perfect! I asked a question on Facebook the other day. “Who did you picture in your mind as Quinn when you read For the Love of Quinn? I got a variety of answers and you know what? All of them were correct. Who I picture in my mind doesn’t have to be the exact version you picture. That’s the whole point of reading books isn’t it? Letting your imagination run wild is more than half the fun, and picturing yourself as one of the characters is the rest of it!

So with that being said, here is my new cover!

 

It’s scheduled for release on November 15th. If that changes, you better believe I’ll let you know. 😉

A Sexy Marine Looks for an Escape and finds Love…Oh MY!

Welcome everyone! I have a fantastic treat for you today. Author Kendall McKenna is my guest today sharing her book Waves Break My Fall. Not only did she bring an excerpt that will melt your panties off, she’s agreed to answer questions about her heroes Kage and Zach. Trust me, once you here about them, you will be begging to learn more!

Oh! I nearly forgot. Kendall has one more surprise for one lucky visitor:  a free ebook copy of Waves Break My Fall. All you have to do is follow the directions on at the end of today’s post. It’s easy!

So let’s bring out Kendall and grill her a bit about her two hotties!  Welcome to Behind Closed Doors, Kendall. Why don’t you tell us a bit about yourself?

My name is Kendall McKenna and I write M/M Erotic Romance novels. I’m very partial to U.S. Marines and law enforcement officers so they make up the majority of my characters. Today, I’m going to talk about my second title, Waves Break My Fall.

In one or two sentences, give the core premise behind your story.

A U.S. Marine is home from Afghanistan and he’s not settling back into his life well, so he flees to Puerto Vallarta for a time. While he’s there, he encounters a young man who seems to get what he’s going through and just how to handle it.

When and where does your book take place?

Present day, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

How does the time and setting weave into the plot and persona of the characters?

This story is part of Silver Publishing’s Summer Heat series, so the setting is a huge part of the story. That was part of the submission requirement. The ocean acts almost as a matchmaker for the two heroes, pulling them to the beach so it can push them together. There is even one scene that takes place in the water, and it’s a huge character moment for one hero, and lays the groundwork for the ‘rightness’ of the relationship.

Who is hero #1?

That is Kage. He’s a Gunnery Sergeant in the Marine Corps and less than two weeks out of Afghanistan.

What drives him?

Overall, Kage is driven by duty and honor. He’s good at being a Marine so he’s proud of being a Marine. More immediately, he’s suffering from PTSD, but has only just become symptomatic. He doesn’t feel at home in his own skin, so he can’t settle in at home, and it drives him to flee to Mexico.

What is he running away from (literally or figuratively)?

Kage is running from himself, the well-meaning and loving smothering attention of friends and family, memories, and nightmares.

What obstacles will he encounter in this story?

Kage’s PTSD symptoms are so powerful, and so new, they’re a constant burden for him. He’s also very aware that, while he’s proud to be a Marine and is not ashamed to have done his duty, he’s done some things in combat that would make civilians uncomfortable if they knew. As a result, he holds himself back to an extreme.

What draws him to the hero #2 in this story? What gives him that push away from him?

Immediately, Kage is drawn by simple, basic, primal, sexual attraction. His PTSD and his own insecurities have him pushing away.

What does he need to learn to make the happy ending possible?

Kage needs to learn that he’s worthy of being loved. That the man he’s falling in love with understands him, what he’s had to do, and isn’t horrified by any of it.

That can be a hard thing for anyone to overcome, especially someone who’s had to put his life on the line every moment of every day while in a war zone. What about Kage will make readers sympathetic to him?

He’s aware that he’s damaged, and he very much wants to overcome it, not succumb to it. He is also determined to conquer his issues because these issues stand between him and this wonderful man he’s just met.

So who is this wonderful hero #2?

That would Zach.

What drives him?

Ambition. Zach is a recent college graduate and he has goals and things he wants to achieve. He’s on the cusp of setting his plans into motion.

What is Zach running away from (literally or figuratively)?

He’s running from adulthood. He knows he has to go back at the end of summer and get is life started, but he’s really trying to prolong this period of his life.

Man, I remember that time in my life when it was finally time to stop being a student, put my big girl panties on and join the real world. What obstacles will Zach encounter in this story?

Zach keeps bumping into Kage’s issues! Kage’s PTSD and the emotional barriers he’s thrown up are difficult for Zach to overcome. He’s also got his own issues with past relationships and he’s struggling not to repeat his own mistakes.

What draws him to Kage? What gives him that push away from him?

Zach has the same primal sexual attraction to Kage that Kage has to him. It’s lust at first sight for them both. The push comes from Zach being a physically strong, intelligent, competent, capable, grown man, who likes his partners to be the same. He likes to be dominated in bed, but treated as an equal in life. His past partners haven’t respected that, and Zach is a little gun shy. Kage is about as big an alpha male as you can get, so you can imagine how nervous this makes Zach.

What does he need to learn to make the happy ending possible?

Zach needs to learn that Kage is the man who can dominate him in bed, but has no desire to dominate him in life. Zach has to realize that Kage doesn’t view him as weak because he likes a powerful lover. He also needs to learn that Kage is damaged and is going to be slow to heal, but Kage wants to heal.

What makes Kage infuriating to Zach, if anything?

Nothing. Kage frustrates Zach, because he’s emotionally reserved and a little insecure. Zach doesn’t understand why Kage doesn’t get just how awesome Zach thinks he is.

What makes this hero hot and lovable?

Zach is smart and sensitive and intuitive. He’s a tall, handsome man in a more traditional way, maybe a softer way than Kage is.

What about him will make readers sympathetic to him?

He’s a little bit embarrassed by his own sexual desires and it makes him endearing. He’s just so sensitive toward, and accommodating of, Kage’s issues, it’s hard not to love him.

Is the oppositional force in this story more external or internal or a little of both?

It’s all internal for them both. The ocean and Zach’s friends are all pushing these two together, but their own issues are the only real oppositional forces.

What is the theme at the heart of your story?

It’s about progress, not perfection. The right person will make you want to be a better person.

What message do you hope readers take away from this story?

Love yourself, warts and all, and others will love you, too.

That’s a lesson we all need to take to heart. It sounds like it would be the simplest thing in the world, but it is so much easier said than done. Is this book a part of a series?

Nope. It’s a one-off.  And that’s a complete lie! A lot of reviews have asked to find out what happens when Kage and Zach get home, and that’s a story I can tell. Zach’s new job and Kage dealing with PTSD is truly an entire story itself. Now, ask me if I have time to write it!

Oh I know all too well having way too many things to do and not enough time to do them in. I’m sure you will find the time at some point. Something tells me that Kage and Zach won’t let you keep them on the back burner for too long. What is the theme of the overall series and how does this story fit into that?

Relationships are hard. You have to want to do the work, you have to compromise, and you have to give more than you take.

Will these characters show up in other books in this series?

If I write it, yes, it will be all Zach and Kage Part II.

How many books do you anticipate will be in this series?

That depends on how much of their story these two tell me at any given time. It’s up to them.

What are you working on now?

I’m winding up the sequel to Brothers In Arms, and I’m about to start work on a special submission call I was asked to provide to MLR Press. It’s got a newly awakened Ancient Vampire and a newly re-born Ancient Warrior. They’re thrown together in the middle of combat in Afghanistan and for some reason, would rather make love than war. 😉

What’s coming soon?

Marine Corps Werewolves, a story called The Strength of the Pack. Also, the Ancient Vampire battling it out with the Ancient Warrior.

Wow! Paranormal Marines? Count me in! For those who want to pick up their own copy of Waves Break My Fall, where can they find it?

It’s available from Silver Publishing, but is also carried at Amazon, B&N, and ARe. Just click on the book cover at the beginning of the post, and you will be taken right to Silver Publishing’s website.

Let’s not forget. One lucky person will win a free copy of the book by following the directions in the Rafflecopter widget at the end of this post. A winner will be chosen randomly on September 14th and Kendall will contact you with your prize! But before we get there, Kendall has one more treat for us. I know you’ve all been patiently waiting, so without further adieu…

Adult Excerpt

“I’m going to get you ready,” he whispered.

“I don’t need much.” Zach lifted his hips.

Kage shushed him, placing open-mouthed kisses along Zach’s jaw. Zach tilted his head back, seeking Kage’s lips. Kage kissed Zach, licking deep into his mouth. They were both breathing heavily now and the sound was loud in the otherwise quiet room.

Reaching into the drawer of the bedside table, Kage withdrew a small lube bottle and a condom. He steadied Zach with a hand on his hip and slid his fingers into Zach’s ass. If it was possible, Zach was even hotter than he had been earlier. His body opened easily for Kage’s fingers.

Twisting his wrist, Kage spread the slick inside of Zach’s tight channel. He slid his fingers out and pushed them back in to the last knuckles. Zach pushed back against him and groaned. Picking up the lube bottle again, Kage eased his fingers out of Zach’s hole.

“I’m good, I’m ready.” Zach gasped, looking over his shoulder as Kage added lube to his fingers.

“Not as ready as I want you to be,” replied Kage, pushing two slick fingers back into Zach’s ass.
Zach groaned like he was in pain and Kage almost stopped moving. “You’re gonna fucking kill me.”
Kage laughed softly. He worked his fingers in and out of Zach’s hole, ensuring a slick glide for his cock. This time, he pressed his fingertips downward into that firm gland he could find easily now.

“Oh, fuck,” Zach cried. He clutched at the pillow beneath him. “Kage.” His harsh whisper sounded like a plea.
Kage kissed the base of Zach’s spine. “I’ve got you.”

Withdrawing his fingers again, Kage lubed three of them this time. He pushed his fingers into Zach’s clenching hole, and it was like Zach’s body was drawing him in. He twisted his fingers and massaged Zach’s gland. This time, Zach shuddered violently.

“Oh, god!” Zach pleaded, “Now, please, Kage. I need you.”

Zach’s desperation hit Kage like a body blow. Blood surged into his own cock, and he was overwhelmed with the need to be inside of Zach. He eased his fingers from Zach’s hole and reached for the condom.

Struggling with trembling fingers, Kage rolled the condom onto his own hard cock. “Hold yourself open for me,” he said, trying to remember to breathe.

Zach pushed the pillow aside and drew up one knee. He hooked his arm behind his knee and pulled his leg higher, spreading his ass wide. Kage lay himself down on top of Zach, wanting to feel his heat.

“You’re so fucking gorgeous.” Kage breathed against the back of Zach’s neck. His cock ached, and he was desperate to push himself into Zach’s heat.

Reaching between their bodies, Kage lined himself up with Zach’s hole and flexed his hips. He pushed inward, slipping into Zach’s body. He groaned at the feel of Zach surrounding him and taking him in.

Zach fisted his free hand in the bedclothes. He moaned loudly, lifting his hips as if to get more of Kage’s cock inside. Kage braced his hands on either side of Zach and gave a hard thrust of his hips. He slid deep into Zach’s ass.

“Kage!” Zach’s cry was a desperate plea.

Last Day of the Naughty After Dark Blog Hop!

Hello once again and welcome to the final day of the Naughty After Dark Blog  Hop! I hope you had fun visiting all of the sites for all of the participants and have yourselves entered in all of the giveaways. I wish you all luck!

More stuff for the Vegas Bling Basket

Today I promised to put up more pictures of what I have in the Vegas Bling basket. I still have one more stop to make during this trip in order to finish up with the goodies, but here are a few more items to add to the picture I posted the other night. Today’s picture has a few items I picked up at the M & M Store (Miss Green of course!), The House of Blues, and LUSH. I have more LUSH items at home to include in the basket too. Once I get back home, I will have the full inventory of the giveaway basket for the winner. Which reminds me, I will be announcing the winner tomorrow late morning/early afternoon Pacific Standard Time. I still have a few lectures to attend before I wrap up another year of attendance at the Western States Veterinary Conference.

Lotion and Shower Gel from New York New York

I loved the comments from yesterday’s blog about taking my winnings and RUN! LOL!  I used to think that way, back when I had grand ideas of going to Vegas to “win big.” That was entirely the wrong attitude to have and the quickest way to lose all of my money on day one. So over the years I’ve developed a strategy. First and most important…join the players club of the casinos you will be dropping your cash in. Use that card every single time you play any slot machine or table game. The more you play, the more points you add up and the more comps you get for your current trip.

Second, make sure you sign up for either home delivery or emails of special offers from the casinos that are part of your players club.  The MGM group is all part of “M Life” and the cards work at NYNY, MGM Grande, Excalibur, Luxor, The Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, the new ARIA, and Bellagio. There are a few others, but you get the picture. Each one will send you offers if you spend any time in their casinos.  If you have a favorite hotel/casino, then by all means keep all of your business with them.

Finally, if you eat at the restaurants in the casino, make sure that you charge the tab to your room. You will be paying for it one way or another,  so go ahead and charge it to the room. The reason you do this is to give the players club people a chance to be able to comp these services for you toward the end of your stay. For example, last year we had an offer for three nights at The Hotel at the Mandalay Bay. Between the three of us in the room, we played enough to cover the remaining days of our stay and ALL meals on our tab. We also had the resort fees comp’d. So an entire week in Las Vegas last year cost us NOTHING except our airfare.

I wanted to share a bit more of the naughty stuff in Vegas. We’ve covered the gambling and the chocolate.  Let’s take a look at a bit more…

Show me the Money!

 

 

 

 

This was on the Playboy Slot machine as it hit all of those wilds and starting tallying up my winnings for that one spin

Whatever you fancy, there is something for everyone here in Las Vegas…adults that is. Sure there are a few places that make it look like it’s kid friendly, but don’t kid yourself. This is an adult playground and it needs to stay that way! This is not the place to be bringing your toddler or teenager. You want a family vacation, go to Disneyland. Leave Vegas for your adults only getaways. You will thank me for it one day!

Before the day is over, please take the time to stop in on the other sites participating in this hop. All you have to do is click on the graphic below and you will be directed to the linky page.  Have fun and remember to stay naughty!
