Heating up the summer ~ Wet and Wild Bl0g H0p ( #wildhop @rmsotera @evernightpub #SO )

Howdy & welcome! We're swinging into the hot and sultry months of summer and what better time to have a bl0g h0p called Wet and Wild than now? Woot!
* Here in Las Vegas things are already heating up. Yup, we've been experiencing temps in the 100's! Too soon for that kind of heat, I say. It should just stick to tormenting us at the end of July and through August. If you live in the desert areas of the Southwest, you know what I mean. But it's not just the outdoor temperatures that are getting hot. RM and I have been burning up the keyboards working on more Double D Ranch goodness!
* At the top of the list is a story we've entitled Wild West Promise. We're nearing the last of the drafts and soon will have a final to submit. It's a short story. Gonna be between 10K and 12K words, and it'll follow a special night in wrangler Kent's life. And there's a surprise with this story, but you'll just have to wait to find out what that is. ;)
* We're also 25K+ into our next full length story (shootin' for 50K+ words) that we've named Wild West Island Getaway. This will pick up after Wild West Hauntings and will follow most of the gang as they vacation down in the Caribbean on Grand Cayman. Bristol and Cassie will both experience some major shocks and changes in this tale.
* Then we have two more novellas, introducing twins Alexis and Amber Dougan, Dakota and Damon's cousins. Like Wild West Island Getaway, these two stories plan to have lots of drama and intrigue in them, too!
* And, fear not dear readers, we still have another full length book planned which will highlight Kane and Roxy's journey, along with other ideas we're tossing around for more books. See? Lots of hot, hot, hot stories are on the way from the Double D writing team!
* Have you ever wished you could meet us? Well, now you have a great opportunity! We'll be attending a Romance Readers' Event called Hot Mojave Knights here in our wonderful city of Las Vegas! (Click HERE for info) We're also planning a special intimate event at the conference regarding our Wild West series of books! So come out, meet us, enjoy the weekend and find out what we have planned for the series. There's a possibility YOU can be a part of a Double D Ranch tale book!

* Now the business of the h0p... There are a couple of great grand prizes to be had!
