My Indulgences ~ Ndulgent Blog Hop #NdulgentHop

What do I indulge in?

Pecan pie and butter pecan ice cream. Yes, I know it's decadent, but I'm southern. We never met a fat gram we couldn't find a way to love.

Perfume in my favorite classic scent. It lasts longer. Honest it does.

One lazy, fat English bulldog with medical bills we dare not mention, but my vet drives a nicer car than I do and even he'd agree I paid for it.

                    Pink daffodils and peonies.

                                                                                      Fresh fruit all year long.

And, I have no willpower when confronted by anything adorned with vintage lace and a price tag that doesn't bring tears to my eyes.

Your turn. Leave me a comment telling me what you indulge in, along with a valid e-mail address for a chance to win my latest release, Wildly Inappropriate, in e-format (PDF).
One winner per every twenty comments will be chosen at random via the Draw Straws online application. I'd be honored if you'd join my blog and like my Facebook page, but those are optional gestures. 

What have early reviewers had to say about Wildly Inappropriate?

"Wildly Inappropriate was filled with everything I love about reading. Eden definitely knows how to write some very CREATIVE HOT KINKY sex scenes!! I will never be able to look at peaches or silverware the same way again!! ;) LOL Just an AWESOME read that I highly recommend. Wildly Inappropriate has quickly become one of my favorite reads and definitely has a place in my keeper pile to be reread. 5 out of 5 rating. " ~ Belle's Book Bag

"...not only does the author give us a precious love story, she gives us a story so much deeper than that. This was such a complex read. I felt so many emotions while reading this book. There were moments I had to stop and fan my face because it's really hot! Then there were moments (being from the deep south) I had to stop and just absorb the truth of the things that made me angry and sad. I didn't just read this book, I experienced it. In the end my heart was full and can honestly say this is one of the best books I've ever read!!" ~ Review left by 'Hot' on Silver Publishing's site

Finally... in addition to each  participant's individual giveaways, the Ndulgent Bloggers are hosting a GRAND PRIZE of $100 GF from WINNER'S CHOICE of Barnes & Noble or Amazon. Be sure to visit as many blogs as possible for more chances to win.

You guys sound like my kind of peeps. All of your indulgences were things I'd do myself if, as one commenter put it, money were no object. I can't believe I missed the high-thread count sheets..indulging in those is one of my bigger sins.
