Yay! Yall today we've got Diane Alberts. For yall who don't know her she also writes as Jen McLaughlin. But today she's gonna be Diane. ::snort:: since I've read her as Diane and totally fell for her series in the Brazen line...the Shillings Agency. Holy hot and funny! Yall give her a nice welcome, check out our chat and leave her some comment love!  ~Anna

Mornin' Diane! Come on back to the kitchen. I'm messing around with a hot chocolate candy cane shooter recipe and figured we could, erm, test sample some and make sure I got em right while we chat. *puts on most innocent expression*
Oh, yay! That sounds delicious! Pass me some!
How are things going in your neck of the woods? Yall getting all excited for Christmas?
Oh, my kids have been ready for a very long time! Probably ever since December 26th of last year, haha! But the shopping has commenced, and I'm ready to sip some wine by the Christmas tree and relax.
*hands over a shooter* Oh that sounds like a fab plan to me! So's. I kinda have a thing for your Shillings Agency...just a wee little thing...okay, okay. *deep breath* They totally make me pant. ::snort:: If you had 10 seconds to get someone going all ::grabby hands:: for these guys what would you tell them?
*drinks shooter* Well, that helped me relax! Yummy! Oh, the Shillings Agency! I love them all so much, but I think what I'd say is that they are all former military men, and they know how to make a woman feel good...if you know what I mean! *winks*
*tries to keep that innocent expression in place* Whatever do you mean Diane? *snortals* They sure do look like they know how to do just that. Mmhm! So, can you tell us 3 fun behind the scenes facts about these guys?
  • All the men are dirty talkers in bed 
  • all the women are independent 
  • and they're all tortured heroes. ;)
Ahhh I do love a tortured hero. And *ung* dirty talkers. Oh yeah. Gimme a little of that ;) Any omg I can't believe you guys! make you blush or shake your head moments with the guys and gals from the series?
Haha! Well, I have blushed a few times, but the biggest incident is in a Shillings Agency book that comes out next year. I was working on a two chapter long sex scene--yes, TWO CHAPTERS long--and I was flying to a book signing. So I'm typing away about cocks and sex and all the good things that go with it...and then I realized the guy next to me was reading the screen. So...yeah. I blushed a lot.
Oh...mygod. That's hilarious! Bet he enjoyed that flight! Heh. Speaking of a little naughty...Top 5 sexiest make-a-girls-panties-melt things about the guys behind the agency?
Some of them are pierced, some of them have ink, they're all alpha males, they all are dominant in bed, and they all love once and only once. ;)
Bless em but oh they are a tasty bunch, aren't they? Anything your guys (or their girls) would do if they could get away with it that would make landing on Santa's "naughty" list totally worth it?
Sex. Anywhere. Anytime. Anywhere. And they do that.
::snort:: Can't say I blame em. lol Any luscious gossip you can share about the next Shillings book?
It comes out tomorrow, and it is called Seducing the Princess. My favorite line from the book is when the hero, Gordon, says to her, "You might own a fucking country, but tonight? I own you."
*cue the girly squee* I freaking LOVE Gordon already!! Ooo let me not get distracted by a dirty talking male right now. lol I saw you have a little herd! Can you tell us a little about your pup and kitteh? Do they supervise your writing? Any fun holiday things in store for them?
I have a dog and two cats! And yes, they love to lay by my feet when I'm typing, just watching. They will be getting visited by Santa Paws, for sure. ;)
Aws Santa Paws will be stopping by Casa del Herd as well. Heh. Alright a couple quickies *waggles eyebrows*

Favorite holiday inspired Man Candy? Pictures are welcome!
Please look to the right. ;)
Best "burning soup" moment? aka cooking disaster
I was making Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, and the water boiled. Instead of adding the noodles, I accidentally added the cheese. The whole thing exploded, and dinner was RUINED.
Oh my. lol Favorite Christmas Cookie?
Those peanut butter ones with a hershey kiss in the middle. LOVE them!
Oh yeah. Those are some good stuff *nods* I'm completely obsessed with....?
Benedict Cumberbatch and Doctor Who.
Most creeptastic holiday decoration you own? (or want?)
I have a Weeping Angel (from Doctor Who) Christmas Tree topper.
Heh. That'd do it. *nods* Alright real quick before you head out what's in the plans for writerly you in the new year? What about your alter Jen?
I'm working on three books right now. One NA, and two adult ones. I'm always busy with writing something!

Stats whiz Kayla Moriarity knows her way around numbers and algorithms. Men, on the other hand, are unsolvable equations. Now Kayla’s en route to her sister’s wedding—alone and without the fictional boyfriend she invented for her family. Fortunately, her plane comes complete with complimentary cocktails and a ridiculously hot ex-marine in the seat beside her. And that’s all it takes for Kayla’s inhibitions to go sailing out the airlock... 

Cooper Shillings has soft spot for people in trouble, but he certainly wasn’t expecting to land in it himself—and definitely not while getting naughty mid-air with a sexy southern belle. When he hears Kayla’s predicament, however, he offers his services as a stand-in boyfriend. After all, he’s heading overseas soon...and how could he refuse a little no-strings wickedness? 

It’s the perfect plan. And all Kayla has to do is ensure her family falls for the ultimate bluff, without falling for it—and Cooper—in the process...
