More praise for Hard as Mason

Thank you to Deliciously Wicked Books and Book Crush for posting reviews on September 3.

“Cindy Wells’ debut novel, Hard as Mason, is a fast paced, sinful little treat. The title alone says it all.  Mason is one hard, hot blooded man just waiting for you to devour.  This book is full of sizzling scenes sure to leave readers tingling all over. … Hot, hot, hot!  I’m telling you, you will not be disappointed with the steamy writing skills of Cindy Wells.”

–Jerzie, book reviewer for Deliciously Wicked Books

I especially enjoy Jerzie’s description of a particular scene as “passion fueled fireball!”

David Gandy’s participation in the Sultry Tides series


David Gandy for Esquire Singapore by Tomo Brejc

If ever there was a perfect image to reflect a scene from Hard as Mason, it would have to be this photo of David Gandy. As I write the second book of the Sultry Tides series, I can’t help but think of this super stud model’s image as the embodiment of Mason’s character.

Yes, I confess, Mr. Gandy is my celebrity crush…and why the hell not? It’s difficult not to swoon when looking into his eyes. Frankly, I don’t think I’d be able to speak if I ever met the man. I might feel weak in the knees like Laura did when Mason…oh, you’ll have to read the book to find out what happened.

I write contemporary romance because it is downright fun; especially when imagining someone like Mr. Gandy in a sexy scene accented by bodies colliding, passionate kisses, and guttural moans. You must admit, he serves as perfect muse to inspire words to flow; words, quickened pulse, tingling sensations…*sigh* (whoops, hubby just walked into the room. Back to the scene…)

Okay, so I know David has blue eyes, but damn, don’t they look green in this photograph?… Just like Mason’s gorgeous eyes. Add the sweater on the handsome Mr. Gandy, and…well, read the following excerpt from Hard as Mason, and you’ll understand what I mean.
