HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
Hope the Easter Bunny found your house and left lots of jelly beans and chocolate.
But if he didn't, have no fear. The Romance Bandits are here to help you celebrate the holiday! To this end we've collected a number of those marshmallow delicacies known as "peeps" and have hidden them in a virtual easter hunt.
Before I tell you the rules, please note the Bandit News scroll to the right and the words "Click here to email us!" When you want to send us your answers, please email them via this link and include your contact information. Do NOT post them in the comment section or it will ruin it for the other players. Okay?
The Rules - The clues below represent either 1) a book authored by a bandita or bandita guest or 2) something that has been mentioned in one of our blogs. To make things a little easier, I've included a list - in alphabetical order - of the authors participating in the hunt & the prize they are offering.
The first person to properly match the clues with the appropriate author can choose the prize of their choice. After that, we'll award prizes as the correct answers roll in. When the prizes are gone - they're gone (sorry).
1. The peep hides with he
Who is obsessed with large bugs
He just might be 'Lost'
2. You'll find this peep on the dark side.
3. The Romance genre she forsook
When Mystery presented its hook.
Peep's now in the cave
Trying hard to behave
And write the great Bibliophile book
4. This peep shies away from those that would call her "horsewitch," though bewitching she may be.
5. My peep is blonde, female, and wearing combat fatigues for butt-kicking purposes.
6. My peep turned as pink as her corset
Her curves to bare for his lordship,
But the tables were turned
His lessons well learned
Now she's the object of courtship.
7. This little peep had a "hot" time
Hanging with the guys of fire station #1
My, they had big hoses!!
8. What happens when you finally find the peep...and it's two?
9. Why is my peep wearing jammies?
10. Oh, who wrote this peep mad and cranky
So handsome but mother so skanky?
He dashed off to Scotland
That home of kilt plot land
I speak verity - hanky and panky
11. If you look carefully among the antiques
In the Pumpkin Patch store in Boston,
You might find this peep wearing his plaid.
12. This peep rode to Rachel's house
Snug in the saddlebags of a Texas Ranger
13. This peep travels far
and explains it all to you
on another blog
14. There once was a two-year-old girl,
The luckiest in all of the world,
She has a mommy named May-May,
And a Maw-Maw for most days,
But Grammy just loves her blond curls.
15. Ultramarine blue
And Alizarin crimson
Winter sunset sky
Hides my yellow peep
amid Ochre echoes on
barren evening ground
16. This peep is strumming a banjo on her knee.
