Perimenopause Rocks! NOT!!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hola my smooshy little love monkeys!

So, yeah, I make no bones about my age, I’m 41 and proud of it! However, being 41, my body is preparing for the big girlie change which means I’m smack dab in the middle of perimenopause and I have to say, this shit SUCKS!

I mean, in all honesty, I can live with the scatterbrained/memory thing and the lack of sleep, heck I’ve dealt with that my whole life so no big there. I don’t have to worry about the whole missed period/lack of fertility thing because I don’t have a uterus anymore, but I still get “phantom” cramps with is weird as all hell.

By far the worst and most horrific part of this whole merging into menopause thing are the hot flashes.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up in a nutshell. I’m not even kidding. It is some ungodly heat that starts in the core of your soul and starts to burn you alive from the inside out. They’re super awesome in the middle of the night because they are usually followed up with a bout of the chills!

Woo. Hoo.

Oh and one more thing, this has nothing to do with perimenopause, it’s just part of getting old. I’ve found that I’m about a breath away from needing those reading glasses. How do I know? Well, I tried to thread a needle the other day and couldn’t find the hole to save my life. Not to mention I’m having to hold things farther away to read them. Mind you, this I can live with as well. I’m going to rock those reading glasses damn it! I’m going full tilt with a banging chain to hang those puppies on too!

Okay, that’s all I have for you today my darlings. Stay tuned for Happy Friday on, yep you guessed it, Friday!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Music Monday: Alexander!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidy ho my magical love monkeys!

Can I just say that I can’t WAIT to share the cover for Divinity with you, but alas, I must. And I have to say that this is a major exercise in my self control because I fully admit that I am horrible at keeping things like this to myself. Hell, I want nothing more than to get my van vinyl wrapped in my cover and drive all over town with a PA system telling the world (or at least all of Santa Clarita) about my book. Yeah, I’m a nerd like that.

But, I digress, the reveal will come soon and I’ll be the first to point y’all in the right direction!

Now onto our musical section of Monday! On Friday I introduced you to the bossman, Mr. Alexander Gaius, brought to you by the oh so nomtastic Jude Law…

Dadgum he wears a suit well, doesn’t he? Whew! Anywho, because of said suitage, so without further ado, I give you his musical “theme” song, Misirlou by the awesome 2Cellos…

I find this piece elegant yet there is a bad-ass edge to it and something tells me that our Mr. Alexander Gaius may have a bit of bad-ass buried under that suit somewhere.

So there ya have it! I urge you to check out more of the tunes from 2Cellos as they are a-may-zing! Have an excellent week, and stay tuned for more blog fun in the week!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Happy Friday: Introductions!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my perky little love monkeys! Did you wrap this week up into a neat little package with a big red bow to prove how much dominance you had over it? You’re flingin’ flangin’ right you did!

Okay so, keeping in the vein of introducing character’s from my upcoming novel, Divinity, let’s take a peek at someone that is pretty important to the story. He’s the head of the house, the direct line to the big wigs at Lebriga, the boss man himself, Mr. Alexander Gaius…

Brought to you by the amazingly beautiful, Mr. Jude Law! *dreamy sigh* Now, as I mentioned, Alexander is the boss. He’s always proper, always in a suit and is that guy that just gets better looking with age.

I think Jude is a perfect fit for Alexander because of that reason. As pretty as he was when he first sauntered onto the movie screen, he’s even better looking now, don’t you think?

He just exudes everything about Alexander, the fact that he is just so pretty to look at is just a bonus 😉

Okie dokie, that’s all I have for you today, stay tuned for Alexander’s theme music for on Monday and as soon as I can share the cover with the world, I promise that you will all get a peeky-poo!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Random Musings~The F-Word!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Bonjour ma petit love monkeys!

How about a little eye candy to get you over the the hump that is Wednesday?

Now, I was going to use a smaller version of this delectable photo of Mr. Joe Manganiello, but…come on…he’s wet AND dirty. Did I mention that he’s WET?!? Y’all know my views on hot, wet men, it’s kind of a given.

Okay so, now that I have your attention, let’s move on. So I just got back from an evening at the 5th level of Hell, aka, Chuck E Cheese. Dear Lord, that place is just one giant petri dish isn’t it? Ick. I truly think that when horribly bad people die they are sent to live forever inside a Chuck E Cheese and listen to nothing but recorder music, for that is what I believe is the official instrument in Hell.

Anywhoo, there was one good thing about Chez Cheese, it is incredibly loud. Like, you can’t even form a semi intelligent thought loud. But luckily that was the one advantage to my evening. You see, it’s no big secret that I’m a gassy gal. I heard recently that a person only farts 12 times a day. Really? Come on, I KNOW I can bust 12 times in a freaking HOUR! Oh yeah, it’s true, I don’t deny it and if you are around me for any decent length of time you will find it out. Granted some days are gassier than others and it was one of those days. But thanks to the ear splitting, shrill child shrieks I could pass the loudest, cheek vibrating fart and no one was the wiser.

Which brings me to wonder why are farts so wrong? Why is it only acceptable for guys to rip ’em and laugh at them? Why is it wrong for women to find them funny? I mean, I do and I’m not going to lie, especially when I’m the farter in a loud venue. I don’t know why but it’s something about it being my little secret that makes it so giggle worthy. But why are women looked down upon of feel like they have to be “above” such humor? I applaud the women of the movie Bridesmaids because they took on the fart and some pretty nasty stuff and showed you that it was okay for a woman to laugh at it. And yet I still know women that refuse to fart in front of their spouses or significant others. Shouldn’t that be the one person that you should be able to fart in front of? If not then I’ve been doing it wrong for 21 years because my hubs knew I farted when we were dating. I figured if he was going to love me, he was going to have to love all the parts of me, fart parts included! So I say, ladies, let ‘er rip! Crack one off the next time you are relaxing and watching TV because if you think your man (or lady) doesn’t think you fart, I have news for you, you can’t hold in a fart when you are sleeping.

Okay, that’s all I have for you today my darlings, stay tuned for more blog fun on Friday! And remember, everyone farts, it’s okay to admit that you do, it’s also okay to admit that they are funny, you know you laugh when no one is looking anyway 😉

Until next time,
Patty <3

Music Monday: Tess!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidy ho my twirly little love monkeys!

I hope this weekend was good to you. Mine wasn’t too shabby, can’t complain, didn’t do much really. Grocery shopped, school shoe shopped with the girls, sweated like a hog in the 1,000 degree heat, oh yeah and there was that little business of seeing the cover for Divinity!

Yep, you read that right, WE HAVE A COVER!!!

And before you ask, no, you can’t see it yet but I assure you it is frakking AWESOME and I will most assuredly be sharing with you as soon as I get the hi sign from my publicist!!

Okay, now onto today’s post! MUSIC!!

This little ditty just reminds me of Tess because of its quirkiness. This is Slink (a Hymn) by Locksley.

I found this song whilst watching a short lived television show, The Good Guys. The hubs and I were so very distraught that the show only lasted one season because it was so good. Clearly what we consider “good” and what the rest of the viewing public consider “good” varies greatly. Such as our luck. We’re almost afraid to like a show anymore because every time we do it seems to be the mark of death for said show.

Anyway, if it wasn’t for that ill fated show, I never would have known about Locksley so at least I got that, right? And Tess got her theme song 🙂

One more thing before I leave you to your Monday, we have a winner for the Hot Summer Heroes Giveaway! Congratulations to Holly W, she is the winner of a Divinity ARC (when available) and an ecopy of Cat O’ Nine Tails! She is also entered to win a $100 gift card to B&N! Good luck Holly, I hope you win!

Alrighty, that’s all I have for you today, stay tuned for more blog fun later in the week!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Happy Friday: Introductions!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my fuzzy little love monkeys! Did you leap on this week and take it down like a lioness going after a gazelle? You’re rip roarin’ right you did!

So, a couple of weeks ago I introduced you to Evie and I mentioned her handler and that I’d be telling you more about her later. Well guess what? It’s later!! Today, I have for you, our first handler, Miss Tessa Jean Mayweather.

Brought to you by the lovely, Emily Browning! Now Tess is quite the character. She’s goofy, she’s fun and quirky.

Tess’ job, as Evie’s handler, is to work behind the scenes. She’s the one that gets all the deets on an assignment, she makes sure Evie has what she needs to get the job done. These two have been working together from day one, which works out to be about 112 years. That’s a long ass time!

The hunter and handler bond is one that is tighter than any other bond imaginable, it’s something almost otherworldly and cosmic. As a matter of fact, one basically cannot exist without the other, the connection is that tight.

Alrighty, there you have our first handler! Whatcha think?

Don’t forget, you still have TWO DAYS to enter in the Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop Giveaway for your chance to win an ARC of Divinity AND an ecopy of Cat O’ Nine Tails! Just click this little guy **HERE** and you get not one, not two, but THREE chances to win! You know how I like my threes 🙂

Okay, that’s all I have for you today! Stay tuned for Miss Tessa’s theme music on Monday as well as our giveaway winner! Have a safe and fun weekend my lovelies!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Let’s Play Dress-Up!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hola my cheeky little love monkeys! Here’s hoping you don’t need a grappling hook to get over the hump of the week that is Wednesday. Well here is a little something to give you a little pick-me-up! I finally managed to tackle the wonders of Polyvore and was able to put together a little character wardrobe of sorts. I did one last week for Evie that I posted on my Tumblr but thought I’d put Daniel’s here. It was fun because it was like playing dress-up with my own characters! So, this is what I put together for Daniel…

Daniel Summers

Daniel Summers by pattyleever featuring a striped hoodie

Pretty cool huh? Notice that I slipped Chris Evans in there? *heehee* The tattooed guy depicts what some of Daniel’s tattoos might look like and the phoenix and the Kanji symbol are part of the story as well and not just thrown in just because. Wanna know what it is? Well you have a chance to find out before anyone else by winning a Divinity ARC in the Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop! Just click this link **HERE!!** and you have not one, not two but THREE chances to win! Plus I’m giving away an ecopy of Cat O’ Nine Tails AND the winner of my giveaway gets entered into the big giveaway for a $100 gift card to B&N!

Music Monday: Daniel+Giveaway=AWESOMENESS!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidy ho my fabuloso little love monkeys! Guess what?

IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL WEEK!!

Can you hear my squeals of delight? Oh yeah, there’s squealing!

Seriously, I could go on and on but let’s get to why you’re really here–you want to know what kind of theme music I’ve cooked up for our hot little hero, Daniel Summers! Did you miss his intro on Friday? Fear not, you can check it out *HERE* Now, why did I pick this song? Well because simply put, it reminds me a Daniel. It has a hard edge to it and it’s a little bit dirty. Not pervy, mind you, just a little smathering of dirt, kind of like Daniel. He’s a guy, down to his core and every guy out there, no matter how nice he is, has a bit of the dirty in him.

I can dang near picture Daniel doing his thang, training with Evie or kicking some demon booty with this cranking in the back.

Okay, now let’s get to this giveaway I’ve teased you with! I’ve joined the Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop and I get to do two things that I LOVE to do, talk about hot boys AND give stuff away!! So, without further ado, who could be hotter this summer than one, Daniel SUMMERS! Hows that for convenient character naming huh?

Brought to you by the “ZOMG he’s so pretty!” Chris Evans! Okay, so what makes a hero hot for me? Yeah, it’s great to have a slammin’ body and let’s face it, his bod is frickin’ slammin! I mean, I have never wanted to lick a complete stranger as much as I want to lick this guy. But what makes a hero super hot for me is his sense of humor and smile. Kinda like this…

Doesn’t that just make you giggle like an idiot and your panties melt off?

Want to see more Hot Heroes? Check out the hop, brought to you by the lovely H.D. Thomson, Bella Media Management & Caris Roane


Thank you ladies for hosting this fabulous hop!

Now for the giveaway! Okay what I have for my darling little love monkeys is a chance to be one of the first to read my new Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance novel, Divinity!!

That’s right! I’m giving away an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of Divinity!! Now keep in mind the ARC isn’t quite ready yet, but it shall be very soon! However, what IS ready for your reading pleasure is my Historical Romance novel, Cat O’ Nine Tails and because I love you all so much I’m giving that away as well! Oh yeah! It’s a twofer! Actually it’s a threefer, because the winner of my contest gets entered into the BIG contest, held by our amazing hosts, for a $100 B&N gift card!

How do you enter my giveaway? Well, I’ve found a cool new entry thing that gives you 3 options to enter so you can enter up to 3 times! Keep your fingers crossed that it works like I want it to, just Follow this little linky HERE!!

Okay, that’s all I have for you today, hopefully the giveaway entry link thing works like it should, if not, I’ll be back in to fix it, ASAP! Stay tuned for more blog fun!

Until next time,

Patty <3

Happy Friday: Introductions!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my excellent little love monkeys! Did you shove this week out the door like a parent shooing their kids off to the first day of school after a gruelingly long summer? You’re dancing in the street because the kids are back in school right you did!

So yeah, my kids are heading back to school next week and as much as I love those monkeys, you might just hear my cheer of joy from every corner of the world. I still can’t believe the oldest is a senior, the middle kid is starting high school and it’s the twins last year in grade school! What the heck man? Wasn’t I just taking them all to kindergarten? I always used to hear older parents talk about how fast kids grow up and they weren’t kidding! Cherish your babies because the next thing you know they’re taller than you or you’re teaching them how to shave their legs and buying bras.

Okay, let’s move on before I burst into tears because my babies aren’t “babies” anymore, let’s check out the next character in Divinity‘s roster, shall we?

Today we are going to look at our male lead, the hot piece of tasty hunk flesh that no proper romance novel should be without, the guy that could melt you into a puddle of giggling goo with just a wink and a smirk…the delectable Mr. Daniel Summers!

Now Daniel is the new guy in the house. He’s Lebriga’s latest recruit and the powers that be have decided to have seasoned vet, Evie, train him in the ways of hunting demons. Granted, he’s has some training, and comes onto the scene with a cocky swagger and loves getting under Evie’s skin. But ol’ Danny Boy is still pretty green and Evie is all too happy to put him in his place, which she seems to think is on his back, under her boot. However, there is more to these two than trainer and trainee, a bond that goes deeper than either one of them can ever imagine.

Okay, so let me play casting director and cast my dream Daniel! If I had my way, I’d cast the oh-so-tasty, Chris Evans as Daniel.

*dreamy sigh* Do I need to break down the reason why?

I mean, really, on top of being one of the most beautiful examples of male breeding stock, he’s funny! Hot and funny? That’s like the killer combo man! Plus, he looks like this…

And this…

AND THIS…

Without a shirt on! I, for one, don’t think he should wear a shirt EVER! Do you hear that Mr. Evans?! Shirts are overrated!

*ahem* Anywho, my naughty little love monkeys, that’s all I have for you today, stay tuned to hear Daniel’s theme song on Monday and a very special giveaway opportunity! Ohhhhh yeah! I know you loves you some giveaways!!

Until next time,

Patty <3
