Erin shared five things we'd probably never guess about her -- read and enjoy!  The virtual floor is yours, Erin ... take it away!

This was hard as I’m pretty much an open book. Honestly, I’m too lazy to put on a façade and keep it up! *G* But here are five things you might not know about me:

1. I’m a night-owl. I LOVE to stay up until the wee hours of the morning and would do so routinely if my children and “day job” didn’t require me to be up at 6 a.m. I’m most productive in my writing after nine p.m. 2. I’m a chocoholic for sure. Eat some every day. But if presented with a chocolate dessert or something lemon-y, I’d pick the lemon. Weird, right?

3. I’m not a beer drinker or much of a wine drinker (it has to be white and sweet or no thank you) but I love liquor *G* Rum, tequila, Kahlua (my favorite), schnapps, vodka—I like it all! (but don’t worry, I don’t drink it daily or anything. Usually.)

4. I love men in uniform. All of them. Firefighters for sure! But I’ve recently realized that if I had to pick, I’d choose men in military uniforms over the rest. Something about the guns maybe? *G*

5. I’d rather do revisions than write a first draft. I’m a great revisionist. I don’t mind going back in and changing things up. It’s way easier for me to do something with words than it is to do something with a blank page.

Suppose the solution to all your problems is the one thing you never wanted…

It figures the one time Sabrina Cassidy is determined to do the responsible thing, karma kicks in. After four years on the road chasing her musical dream, she’s stranded six hours from home with no money, a ruined credit history—and morning sickness.

Out of options, she swallows her legendary independent streak and calls the only person who won’t hang up on her. Luke, the man she left behind.

Marc Sterling’s first instinct is to protect his business partner and best friend from another broken heart. That means letting her think she’s talking to Luke, then finding a way to send her in the opposite direction.

When he shows up at her hotel room, there’s something in the air beside their customary insults. Sure, her rebellious attitude, smart mouth—and purple panties—still drive him crazy, but now it’s a different kind of crazy. The kind that has him driving her home instead of to the nearest airport.

And when Luke offers to solve all her problems if she’ll only say “I do”, Marc realizes he’s just crazy enough—about her—to forget whose heart he wanted to protect.

Warning: Contains two people who don’t like each other very much, a Toyota that can’t quite handle the road trip home, and a spontaneous proposal. Or two. Or three. And foreplay with—what else—pie filling.

Erin Nicholas is the author of sexy contemporary romances. Her stories have been described as toe-curling, enchanting, steamy and fun. She loves to write about reluctant heroes, flawed heroines, sex with food and happily ever afters. She does not like to write dark moments, synopses or bios. You can find Erin on the web at http://www.erinnicholas.com/ , http://www.ninenaughtynovelists.blogspot.com/ , on Twitter (http://twitter.com/ErinNicholas ) and even on Facebook (when necessary).

  2. Thanks for the fun and informative post. I'm not a wine drinker either.You can't go wrong with chocolate everyday.
    This book sounds amazing. Can't wait to read it. Thanks for the blog tour.


  3. Hello Erin.
    I too am a night owl. I am lucky that I get to indulge that lifestyle.
    If I drink I like the flavored liquors too.
    Thanks for the fun tour.

  4. Hi Erin,
    I'm trying to stop in when I can to say, hi. I still have almost three weeks of the school year left, then I can dive into my copies of your Anything & Everything series. I do not want any interruptions when I start reading. I am also a night owl, it's my me time. I would love a drink once in a while, but due to meds I can't have any. Maybe you can have one for me, sounds good amyway.

  5. Joanne, some of the Nine Naughty Novelists have turned me more on to wine. I like moscato (very sweet) so they don't totally shun me

    Michelle, you would like the Magic Pixie.. it's a drink that Sabrina makes up in Anything You Want. Sweet and tart. (I had to mess with it in real life to be sure it worked ;))

    Tina! Hi! Thanks for stopping by on the tour... I can't wait for you to read the books and tell me what you think!

  6. Fun facts. Thanks for sharing.


  7. Hi Erin! I love staying up late on weekends to read *G* would do it everyday if I didn't have to work lol. Not much of a beer or wine drinker but I do like my fruity cocktails or drinks w/vodka. Would love to read more of your books.


  8. Very cool, Erin! I loved your facts--I think I agree with all of them. I'm a night owl, too, or would be more of one if it wasn't so hard to get up the next morning to get the kids ready for their days! ;) I don't drink much either, but the sweet drinks appeal more. And mmm... chocolate!!! But I love fruity desserts--honestly, maybe I just have a sweet tooth, period. Can't resist a guy in uniform, and yep, I don't write much, but I find it WAY easier to edit than to create... maybe it's just easier to read than to write ;)

  10. I don't drink alcohol very often. I have never had beer before. The smell turns me off.

    Congrats on the blog tour!
