I’ve got the Hot Guys here!!


I have super talented fellow Rose, Jennifer Jakes -and her bevy of Hot Guys- on the ranch today! If you follow her blog ~Warm Days, Cool Nights and Hot Guys~ you know she knows where to find the sweetest man candy treats!

Let’s not waste time and jump right into the round pen with Jenn– 

Suit and Tie or Jeans and T-shirt?

Which do you prefer? Does your real-life choice differ from your reading choice? Do you find yourself drawn to the rich tycoon, dressed to the nines? Or the rebel in jeans and a tight t-shirt?                                       And what do the men I’ve described have in common? They’re Alphas, baby! Alphas all the way. 🙂  My favorite type of hero to write/read about.

Now, as far as the clothing, I know you think I’m going to vote for jeans. I’m the one who always goes for the bad-boy look, right? (I’m nodding) But I have to admit there’s something powerful – sexy powerful – about a man in a suit. Both of these men look like they have some bad-boy in them.

But let’s make the case for a casual guy. He looks more approachable, more down to earth. He also wears his bad-boy for all the world to see, tempting women and daring men.

                                                                                                                       So no matter which look you choose, it’s really the man beneath the clothes that tempts us, isn’t it? 😉

Tell me about your favorite look on a man and you’ll be entered into the drawing for a Free e-copy of TWICE IN A LIFETIME !


Be Careful What You Wish For. . .

No-nonsense stuntwoman Isabella Douglas will do anything to stop an unwanted divorce and reclaim the happy life she had, even allow her old friend to concoct a magical spell to turn back time. But when the spell goes awry, Izzy finds herself trapped aboard a 1768 Caribbean pirate ship with a captain who’s a dead ringer for her sexy as sin husband, Ian. Convinced he’s playing a cruel joke, she’s furious – until she realizes he doesn’t know her or believe they’re married.

Captain Ian Douglas does not have time to deal with an insane woman who claims to be his wife; he has to save his kidnapped sister. But as Izzy haunts his dreams and fills him with erotic memories he can’t explain, he’s forced to admit he feels more than lust.

Trapped in a vicious cycle of past mirroring present, Izzy knows they only have days to find Ian’s sister and prevent disaster from striking a second time. If she doesn’t, their marriage will be destroyed again – along with the man she loves.

About the Author

After trying several careers—everything from a beautician to a dump truck driver—Jennifer finally returned to her first love, writing. Maybe it was all those Clint Eastwood movies she watched growing up, but in her opinion there is no better read than a steamy western historical.

Married to her very own hero, she lives on fifteen acres along with two beautiful daughters, three spoiled cats, three hyper dogs and one fat rabbit.

During the summer she does Civil War re-enacting and has found it a great research tool, not to mention she has continued appreciation for her microwave and hot water heater.

OK- I definitely take dibs on Johnny! But Brosnan is hot and the first guy? (looks familiar but name escapes my swiss cheese brain) oh,yeah! But I absolutely go for the casual dress whether he’s a bad boy, or boy who’s bad. Your book sounds as yummy as these ooh-so-mouth-watering treats, Jenn! How can I get my copy? Follow you to other blogs, you say? I think I have to!

But for my visitors it’s right here! Leave your email for a chance to win your copy. For all the rest, I’ll see you wherever Jennifer Jakes is!

Oh- and don’t forget to come back TOMORROW to learn the story behind my upcoming TWRP release HOME, due out December 28th! I’m kicking off my “HOME for love” blog tour right here at the ranch!!!!!

  1. Johnny Depp is an all time favorite… makes my tongue hard, lol… and some men really know how to wear a suit/tux and can really make them sexy. But I must say, our little gas station hottie here is just too…. yummy. Where can I get mine??
    Thanks for sharing,


  2. WINNER UPDATE! Mac said she already bought her copy, so the second name we drew was…………JOANNE STEWART!


  3. AND THE WINNER IS……Mac Crowne!!!! Congrats Mac. Please contact me for your copy of TWICE.


  4. Oh I know. I’m bringing Jenn back for a repeat! 😉


  5. Definitely the rebel in t-shirt and jeans.

    Great post and great pics!



  6. took me a while to make it through the excerpt – I got distracted by the hawtness above! But I love it – good luck with the book!!!


    • Hi Kristina –
      Yes, Calisa aptly named her subject line. The guys are HOT! I love Pierce Brosnan but the gas station guy………YUM!
      Thanks for stopping by. Glad you liked the blurb. Wishing you happy holidays:)


  7. Anyone remember Johnny Depp in 21 Jump Street? Thats when my obsession started (for both Johnny and uniforms) Doesn’t matter what kind of uniform, police, fire, soldier – but get them hot and sweaty and phew! Irresistable! 🙂

    GREAT blog Jennifer – and I can’t wait to get your book!

    • You and me both LaVerne. Johnny and Judd Nelson- what a team. I wish they’d bring that show back to tv land!


    • Hi LaVerne –
      OH! I remember Johnny from 21 Jump Street. I was actually showing my daughter pics of him back then b/c she’s such a huge Pirates Of The Caribbean fan. She laughed.
      I’m glad you liked the blurb. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy holidays:)


  8. Glad I didn’t miss these guys…but have to say…Johnny Depp has had me hooked since Edward Scissorhands. Nice blog for a cold and windy (aka nearly hurricane for me) day! Thanks for the cheer up!


  9. Okay I go for a “smorgasbord” look – love a guy in designer jeans (but not “blingy butts”), expensive boots, a T-shirt that shows off all the lean muscle, the yummy topped off with a leather blazer that’s tucked slightly at the waist so when he leans over, well, it sort of “rounds out” the picture. Add slight stubble along the jawline to tickle the neck and piercing eyes with a crooked grin and I’m a puddle of hot wax waiting to be formed. Yep! Off to find some ice. Thanks Jennifer & Calisa!


  10. Hi Joanna-
    Thanks! I’m glad you liked it:)
    And I agree, I do love a man in worn jeans. Especially one who looks like him. 😉
    Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays.


  11. Sorry I stopped by a day late! Nice eye candy! Man at the pump for sure!
    Loved the blurb on your story! Look forward to the read.


  12. Oh I love the premise of your book. I think I just added another to my TBR pile…

    As for men..I prefer them in jeans. So yup, count me in among the cars driving around looking for that durn pump…. *wipes drool from chin* Pardon me. 😀


  13. Hi Ladies,

    *scrolling back up for another peek ~ sigh*

    Okay, I just have one question. Where exactly is that gas station? My uh … tank is empty.


  14. Had to finish fanning myself before I could post. My favorite is a man in a military uniform, but there are a few of these guys that’ll do. I too love the premise and can’t wait to read your book.


    • Hi Ally –
      Oooooh. Yeah, I should’ve brought a Military Man pic. Next time. (That works for you, right, Calisa??) LOL
      Glad you liked the blurb. Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays to you.
      Now I’m off to search for pic of sexy soldiers.


  15. Geez, it’s freezing in my house this morning, since I haven’t kicked up the temp yet–and I had to take off my sweatshirt. Hot damn. The book sounds absolutely wonderful. Going off to check it out now.


    • Hi Callie –
      LOL! Glad you enjoyed the …..can I say bed-warmers? *wink*
      I’m happy you liked the blurb too! Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays 🙂


  16. *waves* Hi Lynn and Christine!

    Thank you for being here Jenn! Ahem, you ARE here, aren’t you? I am drooling all over my keyboard now so I think I’ll get to work on edits and try to fit some writing in today amid the house cleaning. No matter how hard I try or beg- it won’t clean itself.


  17. I have a tendency to lean toward the bad boys, and if the man can pull off a suit and still remain drool worthy in a pair of jeans. I’m there.

    Great post ladies. I love the premise of Twice in a Lifetime. Congrats on the new release.

    *waves* Hi Lisa.


    • Hi W. Lynn –
      I agree. And most bad boys really look good in a dark suit, with the collar loosened – no tie – like he couldn’t just bring himself to conform….YUM!
      Glad you liked the blurb. Thanks for stopping in today and happy holidays!


  18. Yummy pics and Calisa, I’ll arm wrestle you for Johnny! hehehehe!

    Love the premise of your book…sounds like a fun read with lots of great opportunities for twists, turns and romance. 🙂

    As for my favorite look on a man…I like a man that can carry off both looks….dressed to the nines when the situation calls for it, but able to carry off faded, torn jeans and an old t-shirt at any other time. Of course he must be ripped and tanned or it just doesn’t work. LOL


    • Hi Christine –
      LOL! I have a funny Johnny Depp story. I have a tote bag with a delicious pic of him on the front that I take to all conferences. I carry that instead of the “assigned conf. bag”. Anyway, women stop me every time and ask where/why I got that one…etc. So if you to conference and seen Johnny on the arm of a tall woman, that’s probably me. HA
      Glad you liked the blurb. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays.
