Guest Post with Kristine Cayne and her Everything Bared Blog Tour (+Giveaway)

Today I'm happy to have Kristine Cayne on my blog today! She's celebrating the latest release in her Six-Alarm Sexy Series. She's also generously offering one lucky commenter a digital copy of Six Alarm Sexy, Volume One. Be sure to leave your email with your comment to win. :)

So, I asked Kristine, "What makes women lust after firefighters?" And here's her response.

Kristine: When Melissa asked me to write a post about firefighters and why women lusted after them, I really had to sit down and analyze my own thoughts and reactions. Why indeed.


First and foremost, firefighters are brave. They have to be to run into a burning building, to crawl into a caving tunnel, or to hang off the side of a high-rise.  But people in other professions such as soldiers and cops, are courageous as well. What makes firefighters different? For me, it’s the fact that these men and women are not acting in any special circumstances. They are not in a war zone. They don’t carry weapons. They aren’t chasing criminals or terrorists.

Saving Lives:

What they are doing is risking their own lives, almost daily, to save the lives of strangers. Yes, soldiers and cops do this too, but saving lives isn’t their primary mission. Firefighters have only one thing in mind when they enter a fire or rescue situation—get the victims out. Nothing else matters. Not who the victims are. Not how they got into their current circumstances. Nothing.

Physical Attributes:

For myself, I admire the level of fitness these men and women have to maintain in order to do their jobs. Combined, bunker gear and an SCBA tank weigh around seventy pounds. Add in temperatures in the hundreds of degrees and the weight of victims that they have to carry, often on their backs, a firefighter’s load is far from light. Sure, not all firefighters are calendar perfect, but it seems that many are. :)

Firefighters are real-life heroes, and who wouldn't want one for their very own? I know I do!

Top Ten Fire Songs

Since I couldn’t think of ten songs with “fire” in the title off the top of my head, I decided to have a little fun with this top ten list. I went on a virtual search, across the Internet and You tube. I listened to tons of songs and picked these ten. What’s your favorite “fire” song?

1)  Adam Lambert – Ring of Fire
2)  Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire
3)    Alicia Keys – Girl on Fire
4)    The Rolling Stones – Play with Fire
5)    The Doors – Light My Fire
6)    Bruce Springsteen – I’m on Fire
7)    Jerry Lee Lewis – Great Balls of Fire
8)    Stevie Ray Vaughan – Crossfire
9)    Billy Joel – We Didn’t Start the Fire
10)    Fire Woman – The Cult

Everything Bared (Six-Alarm Sexy, Book Two)
RELEASE DAY Celebration!

The Everything Bared release day has finally arrived. Welcome to the celebration! Be sure to read all the way through to win some great prizes!

Available Now!

Everything Bared is the story of Dani Harris, a firefighter on Jamie Caldwell's technical rescue team, and William Caldwell, Jamie's younger brother. Both Dani and William appear in the earlier books in the series, and the tension between this oil-and-water pair sizzles from the start.

Two polar opposites—she’s kinky, he’s uptight—discover they share a taboo desire that may destroy both their futures. 

Firefighter Dani Harris has always wanted a family, but doesn’t think it’s possible because of her demanding, high-stakes career. Her sex life is as high-adrenaline as her job, and that’s just one more thing that makes her unsuitable to be a wife and mother. Her secret kink—exhibitionism—has gotten in the way of more than one relationship. Will she ever find a man who not only shares her wild fantasies, but loves her for them?

Burdened with ensuring the success of the struggling family business, William Caldwell IV needs a wife suited for a CEO—one with money and connections, who can manage his busy social life and raise their 2.5 children. He’s got everything all mapped out, but when he meets Dani, a woman who’s nothing but every kind of wrong, she taps into desires he’s only half-recognized and long-suppressed. Suddenly his carefully crafted five-year plan feels as confining as a straightjacket.

As Dani and Will’s sexual experimentation escalates, they test the limits of polite society by baring all and risking exposure—an exposure that could cost them their reputations and careers.

Because Kristine loves her readers and because she is thrilled to be releasing Everything Bared, she's giving away two prizes!

1) One Six-Alarm Sexy T-shirt designed by the incredible Laron at Ninth Moon (http://www.ninthmoon.com)
