Hard at Work Labor Day Blog Hop

Hi, I'm Juniper Bell, erotic romance author. Welcome to my stop on the Hard at Work Labor Day Blog Hop!

You know what they say ... parenthood is the hardest job you'll ever love. Now that I'm a stepmother, I totally understand this statement. I think my husband is an amazing father. In honor of him, and all dads, here's my Labor Day tribute to all those men who are Hard at Work ... at home.

What could be sexier than a bare-chested man holding a teeny-tiny baby? Um, maybe one with a fireman's helmet? Men with babies always make me melt. Almost as much as ...

... men ironing, cooking and
cleaning the shower.

And of course, no matter how much work he does around the house, our hero is still willing to fill the gas tank ...

play handyman...

And read to the kids.

No wonder he's tired by the end of the day.

But why let him nap when you can wake him up and show him some love?

So here's to Hard at Work men at home. You have no idea how sexy you are.

I'll be celebrating Labor Day with a new release, Go Deep, which comes out on September 7 from Ellora's Cave. If you leave me a comment, I'll put you in the running for an extra prize -- an ARC of Go Deep and a $5 Amazon gift certificate!

Here's the blurb for Go Deep. Scroll down to the next post for an excerpt. Enjoy!

Beth is the shy, dreamy type. No one guesses at the wild sexual thoughts she hides behind that quiet fa├žade. She doesn’t even share her secret longings with her husband.

Gavin loves his wife, but he’s tired of living in a marriage in which neither he nor Beth reveal their true desires. When Gavin sees Beth’s response to an erotic bondage photo in her framing shop, he jumps at the opportunity to break through her barriers.

He accepts an invitation to a showcase match for the amateur hockey team he coaches during Wild Nights, the infamous winter festival during which “anything goes, nothing counts.” But he’s opened a sensual Pandora’s box—Beth has some surprises of her own. When she meets Eagle, a free-spirited Wild resident, she knows he’s the perfect man to help enact her erotic fantasies. And once they go deep, there’s no going back.

And click here to return to the Blog Hop.

Happy Labor Day!

Love, Juniper

I love the picture of the fireman and the baby. that is one CUTE baby and the guy is outstanding. I thought Training the receptionist was my favorite book until I read Restraining the Receptionist. and then I read Go Wild and then I read My Three Lords. I would love to win the new book, thanks for the contest.

Donna said...

All your books are wonderful. Go Wild was so fun and I can't wait to read Go Deep. Didn't you promise me more info on the exact location so I could go to Wild Nights? Have a great Release Day!

Swamimamma - Thank you so much!! I really appreciate your kind words. ;-)

Hi Donna! You're right, I did promise to share that closely guarded secret, LOL. Let's just say Wild is somewhere between "imagination" and "wishful thinking"! Thanks for the lovely compliment!
