Guess What Iím Doing this Summer! | Kathy Lyons / Jade Lee


How did it get to be summer already? Part of my brain is still wondering if I got everyone Christmas presents like I intended. But the rest of me is fully enjoying tank tops and stretchy shorts. Iím not as thin as I used to be, but fortunately, my fashion sense has completely disappeared. Instead of being shamed by the way I look in shorts and a thin tee, I think about how comfortable I feel and donít look at the lumpy cellulite in my thighs.

So now that weíre all cringing from that mental picture, how about I distract you with a question? Guess what my favorite thing to do in summer is.

  1. Cook out! Or maybe barbeque. Anything that involves meat and eating outdoors in the sunshine!
  2. Rollerblading. If itís too hot to walk on pavement, just pull out the in-line skates and let the hot breeze push you along. If your wheels melt to the pavement, well, it was time to buy new ones anyway, right?
  3. Basement movie nights. Itís cool and dark down there. Perfect time to watch The Accountant or Logan. Who doesnít love tortured hotties in cool, dark places?
  4. Ice Cream. Yeah, Iím lactose intolerant. What of it? Ice cream is the best when itís hot outside. Or cold outside. Or any time.

Answer: D Ė Those of you who know me well, know I donít cook. I once went on a raw food diet out of laziness. So anything with the word ďcookĒ in it, isnít for me. That cuts out answer I do love rollerblading and Iíve been known to do it in very hot temperatures, but itís hard and sweaty work. So, I enjoy it but itís not my favorite summer activity. Weíre getting closer with answer C, basement movies. I do love movie night, and The Accountant and Logan were two great movies I saw just this past weekend. But nothing compares to my love of ice cream. Yes, I am indeed lactose intolerant, but OMG, eating ice cream at the local parlor is my all time beloved summer activity. And thatís answer D!

Now hereís a trick question. What sport am I going to be watching this summer? Hint: it has to do with my next series for Entangled Publishing.

  1. Surfing. Hot guys, water, the potential for sharks. What could be more fun?
  2. Bear baitingóhistorical of course because we donít do this anymore. But you know about my grizzly bears, right? FOR THE BEARíS EYES ONLY is up for a PRISM award! Where else am I going to see bears in action except on some old timey youtube?
  3. Racquetball. On the court, off the court, I love it. Itís my favorite sport.
  4. Baseball. My hubby is a huge fan of the Tigers and we watch every game. Why? Because Iím launching a baseball trilogy next year. So if I am forced to watch guys with tight pants whack at a baseball, then who am I to argue?

Answer: D Ė I do enjoy guys in tight Speedos, but I competed in springboard diving, so Iím more likely to watch that for my wet hottie fix. Cliff diving has good scenery too! As far as Iím aware, bear baiting is not on youtube, and Iím not sure I could stomach it even if it was. I am continuing my grizzly bear shifter series (yeah!) so be sure to pick up the first three books before the next set comes out! I do love racquetball, but I like playing more than I like watching. And sadly, I havenít yet sold a sports romance series with racquetball in it.

Maybe next year! So the last choice is the right one: baseball! Iím writing a trilogy about a made up baseball team in Indianapolis. Which means I have to figure out what phrase like ďlate season call upĒ and ďscrewballĒ really mean. But donít worry, Iíll explain all about it next year closer to release.

So now itís your turn. Tell me what youíll be doing this summer and one lucky commenter will get an e-copy of either of my two PRISM finalists. FOR THE BEARíS EYES ONLY is about grizzly bear shifters. Roar! And ďRock HardĒ (part of the Stone Men series) is about a regency gentleman trapped in a statue until someone special brings him to life. Both are up for PRISM awards and I couldnít be more excited!


Grizzlies Gone Wild #3

For the
Bear's Eyes Only


Life as Alan Carman knew it is over. After he was captured and tortured by a mysterious enemy, the lawyer's latent grizzly-shifter DNA was triggered. The old Alan is gone, and in his place is a terrifying vicious beast that lives and breathes for revenge. He will track down the person who did this to him-and it'll be the last thing he ever does.

Tonya Kappes refuses to let Alan run headlong to his death. A bear-shifting deputy-and the Gladwin Clan's beta-Tonya faces Alan with one weapon: the love that's lingered between them since they were kids. But the idealistic man she knew has changed...into something raw, primal, and unbelievably sexy, igniting every lustful cell in her body. And, if Alan can't learn to love the beast inside himself, maybe he can love the animal in her . . .

Romance Paranormal [Forever Yours, On Sale: November 15, 2016, e-Book, ISBN: 9781455540990 / eISBN: 9781455540990]

Alan has lost himself, can Tanya save him?
