Today the Birdies are pleased to welcome fellow author Rosanna Leo. Rosanna’s got a whole bunch of hot pics for us. We knew we liked her for a reason… 😉
Say “hello” to my firefighting friends!
I am so excited to be here on the Dirty Birdies! Thank-you Birdies! In fact, I got so excited, I decided to bring some friends with me. You see, my current release Up In Flames is all about a sexy fire captain and the woman who reluctantly, but inevitably, falls for him. In pondering this opportunity to be here today, it occurred to me that we just don’t have enough firefighter man candy in the world. I’ve made it my mission to correct this discrepancy today!
Ahem, start your engines!
Now, this lovely gent from the NYC force is a prime example of a man who is dedicated to his work…using that big stick thing on a piece of wood…in the blaring sun. With abs. Okay, I don’t what the hell he’s up to, but he looks good doing it!
Okay, now the next guy has an axe! That’s pretty impressive! I think he’s going to hack into something but I’m not really sure because I can’t stop focusing on his chest…
All right, now this lovely gent has also clearly lost his shirt…and in Chinatown. Which makes me think that he could be some sort of multicultural liaison…or that he might let me lick sweet and sour sauce off those cut abs…did I say that out loud?
Oh, Heavens, me…uh…I, uh…oh, just show the picture…
Well, there you have it, fans of the Dirty Birdies! Some luscious, sculpted firefighter man candy. I do hope it satisfied. As for me, well, I think I need a little time on my own now…not for any reason…

Blurbs/Buy Links for Up in Flames and For the Love of a God
For the Love of a God:
Conservator Maia Douglas is an expert on ancient Greece and its mythology. She would never tell anyone at the museum where she works, but she’s always had a secret crush on the mythical Eryx, Greek god of love. There is nothing she loves more than to tend to her favorite statue of him, and her nighttime dreams are filled with luscious images of Eryx making love to her.
One day, the peace at Maia’s beloved museum is shattered when a new director arrives. A man who looks exactly like her image of Eryx. As Maia watches, he manages to upset her ordered museum world, at the same time he inflames her with unwanted desire.
Maia does not know that her new boss is actually the god Eryx, disguised as a mortal so he may work in antiquities. Although he is the god of love, he has forsaken his sexual nature because of a curse that has killed any woman he’s dared to love. Though he fights it, Eryx is drawn to Maia with a force he’s never experienced in a thousand years. But can he convince her of his true identity? And can he protect her from a vengeful goddess who seeks her destruction?
Up In Flames:
Juliet Baker is not looking forward to coming home after six months. Yes, the fiery brunette wants to make a go of turning her parents’ farmhouse into a B&B. She’s just not looking forward to seeing the place where they died. To make things worse, she knows she’ll finally have to face her cheating, firefighter ex-boyfriend.
Luckily, her sister has found Jules a boarder. Easy money, right? Not when she realizes the boarder is Captain Shane Gaskill. Not only is Shane a firefighter, he’s the town’s hot new fire captain.
Jules is determined to hate all firefighters. After all, the men of that precious brotherhood protected her cheating ex. Shane, however, proves he’s different from the start. He’s protective and kind, and she can’t stop looking at his smoking, Viking-hot body. She learns, though, that Shane isn’t so willing to love again either. He’s been hurt, too. They both fight the sexual chemistry, and resulting tenderness, between them. But when a stalker begins to target Jules, they realize they can’t fight their desire forever.
As the threats escalate, Shane and Jules are thrown together. The resulting passion overwhelms them. But are they willing to trust each other and surrender to the flames of love?
