Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop

Thinking of fall for me conjures images of comfort food, like pumpkin pie, and hot chocolate with whipped cream. I also think of a nice crackling fire, snuggling with a significant other, and abundant colors on falling leaves. Reds, oranges, and yellows, delighting my eyes, giving me a break from green, but preparing me for winter with one last hoorah. Yes, fall is in the air.

Thoughts of desserts make my mouth water and remind me of a hero that enjoys having fun with sweet confections, Drew Radcliff. I wondered what his take was on the season. So I posed one simple question for him to answer. Let's see what had to say.

"So Drew, what's your favorite part of fall?

Drew gave me a wicked grin and his blue eyes light up with interest. "I'd have to say whipped cream."

Me: "Whipped cream? Why?" I ask, giddy with anticipation of what he will say.

"It's sweet and versatile," he paused and cocked his head to the side. "Outside of coating pumpkin pie with it, I love to use it on delectable regions of a woman's body." 

Me: I wiggle, allowing my mind to wander to dark and naughty places in my mind. "Oooh, sounds kinky and fun."

"Sweetheart, I can take kinky to a whole new level with a can of whipped cream." Drew replied with confidence and offers me a wink.

That cowboy, wow! Hot, hot, hot. Do you want to find out more about Drew Radcliff?

  1. This is a great blog hop!

    I enjoyed the Just Vamps Anthology :)

    There are many things I love about Autumn. The changing leaves, cooler weather, Halloween and Thanksgiving, and my favorite - eating pumpkin pie!!!

    ~Julie K

    1. Julie, I'm so happy that you enjoyed Just Vamps! I loved all the stories as well, but hey, vamps, I'm all in :) I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie is my favorite too! Of course I coat mine with a half a tub of whipped cream!

  2. I love your giveaway!

    I'm not crazy about Fall because I love warm weather, and here in New England, Fall means that Winter is coming soon (earlier this week we had a big storm). I do, however, love pumpkin picking.


    1. Kelsey, I love warm weather as well and get my fill of winter very quick. I'm sure you have more than I receive :( Poor you. Bundle up this winter and think of bright sunny days :)

  3. Thanks for the giveaway!! Super excited for this bloghop.
    I love the autumn!! Favorite season out of the 4. Love the changing of the leaves and the beautiful colors. The smells and freshness of the air...just refreshing! And the Food!!

    1. Kipha, I love the colors as well. I wish I had hundreds of sugar maples. Red is my favorite color and they seem to be the most impressive. And, food, gah! I think I just gained 5 lbs thinking about stuffing, pumpkin pie..... :)

  4. Autumn is my favorite season! I like all the beautiful colors outside and the weather is not that hot anymore but not freezing cold either. It's just perfect! Thank you for the giveaway!

    1. Veronika, I'm loving the weather and the colors, I just wish the mild days lasted as long as the heat of the summer seems to. I'll take what I can get before winter chills me to the bone! Brrr.

  5. It’s hard to say what exactly would be my Go-To Autumn Romance book. When I think real hard about it, I would have to say it has a sexy, strong, determined male that when it comes to love is just lost. Then there has to be a woman who is usually in need of help or needs to know what love and family is. Together they heal each other and love turns out to be their greatest gift. I also love a happy ending at this time of year, usually where the epilogue has them starting their own family to love and cherish. Oh….and definitely HOT loving too!

    1. I love sexy, strong and determined men! But I also love a man that isn't perfect and has room to learn and grow. The same goes for the heroine. No one is without fault or error. We can all learn something from our mate :)

  6. I love Autumn because of the cooler weather, campfires and changing colors and Thanksgiving, which means family.

    1. The cooler weather here has been a blessing after the drought this summer. I've thoroughly enjoyed it :) I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving and traveling back home to spend time with family I don't see very often. I also love campfires ;)

  7. Okay, fallin' for Drew hook,line and sinker! Hot, Hot, Hot!!!:) Fall? I love it because it gets cooler meaning more time by the fireplace snuggling and cuddling!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. Ha ha ha. I'm reeling you in! Drew is quite the naughty boy :0 Thinking of cooler weather gets me all excited about the fireplace. Nothing is warmer or cozier than a nice fire while winter tries to do its worst :)

  8. Thanks for the giveaway! I prefer spring to fall, but I love the colorful leaves of autumn as well as the knowledge that winter break is approaching.


    1. Kayley, I remember that feeling well :) I always looked for to winter break too. Come to think of it, I looked forward to spring break as well. Must be something to do with the word break so I could rest my brain :)

  9. I love the cooler weather, the pumpkin stuff and Halloween!
