Anna Campbell said...

Hey, Jane, it's going to be an exciting day - FOR YOU! You've got a rooster coming to stay!

Wow, what a line-up for September. Thanks for putting it up, Joan. And great to see those launch parties on the go. I love our launch parties. Margaritas, cabana boys, dangerous dukes, risque business? What's not to like!

Oh, and don't forget to enter my contest, guys!

jo robertson said...

Nice line up, Suzanne. Lisa Gardner! Wow, how lucky are we. And lots of new releases to add to our TBR piles and to empty our pocketbooks LOL.

Congrats on the rooster, Jane!

Oh, goody! What a month to look forward to! And congrats on the GR, Jane--an exciting day for you ;)

Helen said...

Well done Jane just watch him he may be hiped up after all of the Tim Tams he has eaten.

What another fantastic month in The Lair I really enjoy these parties can't wait for them and of course to read the books.

And of course there are going to be some wonderful visitors for us to get to know

Have Fun

Eva S said...

What a great September to look forward to! Have a nice day everyone, I'm off to work for the first day this year, a little exciting (although it shouldn't be after 15 years...).

Anna Campbell said...

Hey, Eva, good luck at work! Hope it goes really well!

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

Congrats on the GR, Jane! Hope he enjoys his holiday Monday in the Big Apple.

Natalie Hatch said...

Buffie said...

Sounds like another exciting month here in the lair!!

I have to tell everyone that I am currently reading Tawny's RISQUE BUSINESS, and man it is one of the hottest books I have read. And I love the fact that is about a book reviewer :)

Gannon Carr said...

Congrats, Jane!

Sounds like another fab month here in the lair!!

Louisa Cornell said...

Another party month in the Lair!! So many great releases. My, you ladies have been BUSY!!

Congrats on the Golden Boy, Jane. Make him behave!

Natalie, I love your comment about your hubby expecting La Campbell's books to pay off in the bedroom. Too funny! As she said, a man of superior tastes!

Another great line up, Banditas. Thank you!

Joan said...

Yup, September is really going to be hopping. News of more fun kept rolling in up to the last minute before I posted!

Helen phrased it very well...more visitors for our BB's to get to know.

That works for Banditas too! Being on the "hunt" for new guests at National introduced me to Kristan Higgins. After I pounced, er, I mean introduced myself at lunch she graciously agreed to join us.

And in doing so introduced me to another "must have" author. So many books now find their way to my TBR pile!

Now, I'm off to see if I can come up with an answer and sneak into Anna's contest :-) I've been wanting to Tempt a Devil all day.

hrdwrkdmom aka Dianna said...

Oh this is going to be a really good month in the Lair.
I have already hopped over to Anna Campbells site to enter for the ARC. All fingers and toes crossed.

I can't wait for the Dangerous Duke! I so want to "meet" Lady Kate again, she is just soooo cool.

I have already received and read Risque Business, gotta tell you all my boyfriend loves Tawny. HOT!!!

I have already entered the Live Dangerously contest. Again all fingers and toes crossed. (I really look funny that way, looks like I have finger and toes cramps)

Gillian Layne said...

Conrats on the GR, Jane!

Hey, you Banditas are rockin' in September, for sure! Have a great Monday, ladies. :)

Kate Carlisle said...

Hey, what a great month for book launches and fabulous guests and contests! Cool! Pass that cute cabana boy over here, will ya? I mean, for that margarita he's got for me. That's all I wanted. I didn't want...oh heck, I guess I did. ;-)

Congrats, Jane! Hope y'all have fun!

Jeanne (AKA The Duchesse) said...

wow, everyone! Party, party, party! I LURVE September and not just because the kids are back in school...heehee. Because we've got parties and fun and great guests...

Wait, that's every month. Maybe it IS just because the kids are back in school. Grins.

Well, hopefully it'll get cooler too! Yeeeeaaaaah Fall!

Anna Sugden said...

Another fabulous month here in the Lair ... oh dear. Yet more books for the TBR room. *sigh*.

Oh well. One has to have some vices ;)

Yay on the launch parties! My hockey hunks have just enough time before the season starts to party away.

OMG Lisa Gardner!! Fan girl moment!! Although, Say Goodbye completely creeped me out. Brilliant book - but oh so creepy.

Joan said...

Say Goodbye completely creeped me out. Brilliant book - but oh so creepy.

Don't worry, Anna. Your hockey hunks will protect you with their sticks....

Hockey sticks, people!!!!

limecello said...

Oh wow - what a great month it'll be in the lair! :D And so many great books to look forward to. Yay!

Christine Wells said...

Yay! Thanks for a great round-up, Joanie T! Another exciting month in the lair.

Christine, crawling out of the deadline cave.

Joan said...

"Snap, Snap" cracking Aunty's crop.

Get back in that cave, missy!

Any other deadline Bandita's trying to peek out? Are there?

{Steely eyed glare} "Snap"

You scared me Joan and I'm not even a writer....(note to self, do not stand next to Christine until her book is finished)

Joan said...

Well, dianna, you have to be stern sometimes. Otherwise, the sequels don't get written, the launch parties dwindle, the cabana boys get lazy....
