Christine said...

Thanks for the award, Hawk. I needed a little sweet lemonade today!! I'm going to nominate my 10 blogs asap.

Here's my early morning attempt at writing a sentence:

The TIMES reporter discovered an elephant in an erotic pose and dashed off to expose the enigma in her magazine.


Christine said...

Okay--how do I post the award on my blog--I am technically challenged.

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Hey Hon!

You are very welcome and deserving..have fun finding your picks.

LOL on the sentence...I love it! Very funny!


P.S. send you an e on the way to grab the award!

Judi Fennell said...

the list of words is hysterical in and of themselves. I might ruin my reputation if I write a couple of those sentences! LOL

Elissa Wilds said...

Thanks for the award, my friend! Fear is an illusion. (I used 2 words from your list.) Smiles!

Blodeuedd said...

Hi Hawk,
Congrats on your lovely award :D

Ok here is a try:
The naked contortionist had been to heaven with a muddy and succulent wench.


Houston A.W. Knight said...


Thanks for stopping in!

Hon...I love the sentence and how true the words!

But don't we all have wonderful imaginations....that carry us away at times.

I've got one (am I allowed to play my own game?) LOL

Heavens hidden in the heart.

Hugs my dear old friend

Houston A.W. Knight said...



"The naked contortionist had been to heaven with a muddy and succulent wench"

Now am I the only one to visualize THIS image?
Yeah, come on girls - what did your minds see, when you read this? tell!
I saw a large busted succulent wench with touches of mud wantonly place all over her body and a very naked, handsome hunk wrapped around her like a fajita warp! Hot, breathless, sweaty and ...

And that's as much as I can say over a public venue! LOL...ah the mind of a romance writer....

Way to go...Blodeuedd...I love the visual!


Lea said...


Thank you so much for the sweet award. I am very appreciative.

Another great post today. The synapses aren't firing very well right now so I don't have a sentence for you but I will work on one... lol

Congratulations on your award, you are very deserving.


Cecile said...

Hey HAWK!!! I want to thank you for the award!!! You are such a sweet friend... =)!!! Thanks!

I will print the list of words and return.. with my thoughts!!! LOL!!! Be prepared!!! LOL!
I hope you had a great weekend!!!
With love! Cecile

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Lea and Cecile

You're both so deserving of the award. You girls have fabulous blogs and you work hard at making them such. It shows you care about people and friendships.


Leontine said...

Hi Hawk,
Congratz on the award love HAWK!

Here is my attempt;
Heart, Hell, Heaven, Heavy, Hidden, Hollow.

His heart felt torn between heaven and hell as he watched her walk by his house. Instantly an intense longing burned through his veins, his instincts pulsed inside him with a rhythm as old as his race. The compulsion to leave his mark on her was leaving him hollow as she disappeared around the corner. He kept his face hidden in the shadows along with the ancient secrets that laid heavy upon his soul.

Kelly Moran said...

Thanks for regifting the award! I appreciate it!

Houston A.W. Knight said...


OMG - what an awesome paragraph!

OMG the description is great, the hero's point of view is intense, really makes the reader FEEL him and his needs. And what a wonderful hook! The ending makes you want to know more about the "...ancient secrets that laid heavy upon his soul."

Awesome! Just Awesome!

Love it

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Thanks for stopping by to check out my game this week.

I do them every now and drop in from time to time.

You're always welcome!

Houston A.W. Knight said...


LOL - big hugs and you're welcome! ;-)


Cecile said...

They have been lovers for years. She is a seductive little tart and he is a sensuous contortionist. They know what going through heaven and hell to have each other means. They also know what it is like to abandon all fears most people keep to themselves. This is a hold-no bars relationship. They have exposed and provoked all things erotic, dangerous and kinky from each other. The one thing they keep hidden is their hearts.

Okay... that is one for now... =) hope you enjoyed my little erotic tale! LOL!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile! ran my emotions from a giggle in the first sentence to intrigue with the second sentence. By the third and fourth my thoughts were all romantic until the fifth sentence filled me with mystery and intrigue and then you hooked me with the very last sentence! WOW!


Cyber hugs

Cecile said...

I am glad that you liked it!!! =) I will be coming back for more... Putting my thinking cap on!!!
I hope you are having a great day!

Houston A.W. Knight said...


:-D I can't wait to see what you come up with next!


Angie Fox said...

Thanks for the award, Hawk! It's an unexpected treat. :)

Houston A.W. Knight said...


It was my pleasure...BTW, how am I doing these days...have I blown anyone away yet? LOL I sure felt like my character this week! ;-)


Cecile said...

Okay here goes.. with another one...
It's a little long... how you enjoy!!

He would go through heaven and hell just to touch her again. He knew that he would fight with everything in him to get her back. She was his fantasy woman; she was everything to him. Dangerous, erotic, seductive, and so sensuous; she knew just what to do to provoke the beast in him. She turned his blood to liquid fire. He drove to her house, threw open the door and went straight to her room… He knew she was sleeping, naked. She woke up right away… and just looked at him with drowsy eyes. Damn her, she was arousing him just looking like that.
He pounced on the bed and kissed her hard. He gently pushed his tongue into mingle with hers. She tasted delicious. She quivered under his touch. She let a whimper out her throat. “Don’t ever leave me again, Cindy,” Grant spoke through ragged breath, “Ever!” They were lovers for to long for her to ever leave him. She was every guy’s erotic dream. He rubbed her, to let her know what she did to him. She could feel his bulge pressing against her; she was already wet for him. He abandoned his clothes in a heartbeat. “Do you love me, Grant?” Cindy managed to get out in between kisses. “What…” Talking was the last thing Grant thought they would be doing. “Do you love me?” “Yes, I do Cindy, why?” “Because I no longer want to be lovers Grant, I want you to take my heart and make me yours.” Grant lost it, he always dreamed of this day. She had hidden her love so well, Grant wanted to be sure… “Are you sure Cindy?” “Yes Grant, bite me and make me yours!”

Houston A.W. Knight said...


This wasn't a contest But you just won yourself a book...have you read Honey and The Hired Hand by Joan Johnston? I'd like to send it to you.


Cecile said...

Hawk, I was just having fun!! Honey, you don't have to send me a book... no, actually, I have never read that book before. I loved playing!!!

M.V.Freeman said...

The dangerous brooding enigma can get a hollow illiusion of jealous lovers....

That is my sentence.

I'm new, Christine pointed me in your direction so I came to hang out and say Hi! :)

Houston A.W. Knight said...


I know we're all just playing...that's what makes it so much fun!

And what else is fun - is surprises...I like doing that look in the mail. (((hugs)))


Houston A.W. Knight said...


Well, welcome Sweetie, any friend of Christine's is a friend of mine - I'm glad you dropped in to visit with us girls.

Oh, nice sentence! Quite deep in thought...if you think about it - very intriguing! I like it!

So...have you heard? Christine's going to be hosting at the M&M ceremony as well as being up for the Maggie award!

OMG, she must be dancing while she sleeps...if she sleeps! I'm so excited for her I can hardly sleep!

I wish I could be there this year to see her at the ceremony...she's going to look awesome!

It's really nice meeting you M.V. I hope you come back and hang out often!


Cecile said...

You are to kind my friend! Thank you!

Oh a new friend!! Welcome M.V.!! I hope you stick around, Hawk always has some awesome post!!!
I hope all have great day and a wonderful tomorrow!

M.V.Freeman said...

Thank you Hawk and Cecile,
You are both so gracious, and I am honored.

Cecile, I really like your paragraphs, those little snapshots of vivid!

Hawk, thank you, I like writing paranormals, and I tend to gravitate toward the darker aspects. Hmm, and really, I'm not a very dark person. :-)

And yes, Christine!!! WOOHOO!!! She deserves it, what a wonderful person, celebrations are in order. I so wish I could go see her present as well.

Houston A.W. Knight said...


You work hard for my contest AND you play hard with times like thses...I love that about you.

M.V. is so right - the images you've shown us with your talented writing are wonderfully vivid...talent like that needs to be rewarded in my book! Beasutiful writing me dear!


Houston A.W. Knight said...


I hear you're soon to be a PRO! WooHoo, when do you expect to get your pin?

Dark Paranormal? Then you've come to the right place here...check out Lea's'll find a link on the right side of this blog - or find her comment and click on her name...

Dottie and Cecile also have wonderful sites where they talk about dark novels ...Oh, check out Boldeuedd's too...Oh, and Elissa writes Paranormal. OMG, I could go on naming names ...but each of the girls here have something wonderful to offer on their blogs...check them out.

I write paranormal too, mostly futuristic fantasy, but right now I am working on a dark you, I usually am not a DARK kind of person, so...we'll see how deep this darkness runs...I hope not too deep, I'd like to be able to find my way back out of there if I can. LOL you know what I mean?

You'll love all the girls here...each and every one of them are the sweetest women you'll ever want to know.
They each run some awesome contest and you can win a lot of free books - good for research when writing dark Para! ;-)

We hope you'll become one of us and enjoy the ride. We're all positive thinkers here and love to pass on the good vibs!


M.V.Freeman said...

Thank you Hawk!, I'm all about positive thinking and the wonderful support of each other as we walk this road.

I am going to make sure before the day is out to mark all those sites. I love all sorts of paranormal & fantasy to read, and I'm always on the look out for new authors and stories..(yep, research!) and also great fun. :)

As for my Pro, I am going to finish *ahem* cleaning up the ms (just roughly) and send it in--I plan to have the pro pin before December. I have to learn to work a bit faster and this MS has really taught me a lot (painful as it has been)

And you are writing a dark paranormal? So wonderful!!!! :) I think those of us with little bit of light in us, can really bring out the dark, so I know you'll do great. (just a bit of my knee jerk philosophy)

Well, its time to go find my coffee...scary thought.

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Yes, this writers road is not an easy one - so when you find "truely Nice" writer & cyber friends, it's a plus.

Awesome, so we'll send the thoughts for a Dec. pin done with an acceptance letter... {;-) hey, why don't break the mold from the majority of authors who get their pin with a rejection letter...
I'll chill the wine so it'll be ready for celebrating! ;0)

I think all first books are the learner books and it's the one that takes us the longest to write because of that.

LoL, I agree with your "knee jerk philosophy"
and how true a statement.

Glad you've join our little Clan!


M.V.Freeman said...

ooh! I like the way you think! :-)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cool, 'cuz I'm liking the way you think as well! Positive! It's the only way to go!


Cecile said...

You ladies are something else!!

Positive is the only way to be!!!

The elephant was through listening to the rock and roll music his trainer had on. So, he took a walk into the murky muddy water to relax. What, that's what elephants do. As he sat in the muddy water, he saw a delicious apple a la mode pie. He thought it would taste delicious. His own slice of heaven!

Now I am hungry... Damn! Have a great day ladies!! Hawk, these words are awesome!

Houston A.W. Knight said...


OMG still play with those words! ROTFLOL, I'm beginning to think you like this game!

LOL, girl, you make me laugh...Love the new sentence...BTW!

I've got your book in the package...just have to get out to the post office...but keep the faith ... it is coming!

Oh, BTW thanks for making me hungry };-( What kind of pie was it anyway? Please don't say cherry/blueberry...BTW, I do make the best home made Cherry/blueberry pie...we'll have some with our wine when you get here!


Cecile said...

I wanted to bring a little sentence to the table! Didn't want you think my mind always stayed in the gutter, lmao!!!

The pie... was apple!

And yes... we will have some of your pie with wine one of these days!!! I promise you that!

I did like this game! It was fun to see what I could come up with!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Apple - now that's me hubby's favorite...I make two kinds of apple pie, one with a basket weave top, the other with a crumb topping...both are really good!

LOL, wine and pie it is.

I love the sentences you came up with, each with a way different tone. Very creative and fun!

I almost hate for Sunday to come when I have to post a new blog! You've made this week sooo much fun with your creative mind...and a little gutter thinking never hurt any up and coming romance writer! LOL

Cyber hugs darlin'

Cecile said...

Oh Hawk... now you are talking... I love crumbs on top!! I make a killer peach cobbler!! Yum-me!!!

I had a blast with this post Hawk!!! I can't wait to see what you have for this Sunday!
I hope you have a great night hon!! And thanks for the hugs!! It was needed! =)

My Blog 2.0 (Dottie) said...

Hi Hawk!

Thanks for the beautiful Lemonade Award!!

Sorry I haven't been around much, felt crappy all week, I hope it's looking up for tomorrow, lol.

Here's my sentence:

The dangerous decadent pirate gazed with seductive eyes at the wanton wench while he yearned to have her naked spread upon his bed heavy with desire, demanding to taste the lips that quiver helplessly as he sunk into her body with a sensuous rock and roll.

Too much?

Dottie :)

Blodeuedd said...

Haha, I loved doing this, and of course I went to pick some really weird image that got etched into my head ;)

Gave you an award over at my blog

Houston A.W. Knight said...
