Spring is in the Air Blog Hop

Welcome to the blog of author, Victoria Roder take a look around and win prizes on the Spring is in the Air Blog Hop...

“Spring is in the air.” What do you think of when you hear those words? Love, flowers, allergies or spring cleaning? I’ll be honest when I hear, “Spring is in the air”, I don’t get an overwhelming urge to clean. Instead, I want to run with wild abandon and enjoy the things I’ve been missing during the cold, frozen Wisconsin winter.

Put the vacuum, dust rag and mop aside because I want to take walks with my sweetheart and our fur-babies. I want to camp at my favorite spot, sit around the campfire and enjoy the crackle sound and watch the captivating flame.

I want to listen to a rainstorm with the roll of thunder. And, after a few of those rainstorms and the salt is off the rode, I want to hop on the motorcycle and ride to no specific destination. This year it may be hard to believe, but Spring is on it’s way. What have you been looking forward to doing?

Why don’t you ride along with Harley riding, Detective Leslie Bolt in Action Thriller, Bolt Action from Champagne Books. Detective Leslie Bolt uses sarcasm instead of beating the crap out of stupid people. She is a smart talking, gun hording investigator forced to work a serial murder case with her sexy ex-lover.  After a childhood of abuse suffered at the hand of her father, Leslie sleeps with a Ruger Blackhawk .357 under her pillow, has a Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker rifle in her broom closet, and a Saturday Night Special stashed in her road-hog cookie jar. The body count mounts and Detective Bolt must conquer her own past, as she races to capture “The State Quarter Killer” before her sister is the next victim.

  2. Hi Vicki, Spring by you sounds so exciting!!! Too bad I'm only left to imagining things out here in the desert country of Oman. We only shuttle between two seasons here. Too hot summers and too mild winters!!! But hey, we have great roads where a group of motorcyclists take to the roads with their Harley's every weekend.

  3. When I think Spring, I think of the haze of yellow pollen covering EVERYTHING (including the cats), seasonal allergies, tourists, crowds at my favorite restaurants, traffic jams, resuming pay-for-parking at the beach, even mosquitoes. It's not my favorite season!

  4. Oh no, not the return of the mosquitoes!

  5. Thanks for the giveaway! Spring is in the air, but unfortunately living in Upstate NY, it is not even close to arriving. It snowed again at my house just tonight. I'm looking forward to the warm weather and longer days though. Spring is the time of love and my favorite romance novel is entitled "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. It's not strictly a romance novel as it's found in the literature section of a bookstore, but it has strong romantic elements. Jamie Fraser is my favorite romantic hero as he's strong, sensitive, honorable and slightly flawed. Sometimes his pride gets in the way of making the right decision, but in the end, he'd do anything for Claire.
    I love this giveaway hop! And, I plan to keep on hopping!

  8. Hubby and I consider a small town in Northern Wisconsin our Home town... (family still lives there)...We live in NC and have been in the south for the past 9 years, love being able to drive four hours to the mountains two hours to the beach. I do miss springtime in WI though... My parents live in the country so i loved all the wildflowers that grew in our garden. I still remember laying out for a suntan when the snow was melted enough so the high ground wasn't wet anymore and it was about 50 outside... Yeah... Memories lol.

    Thanks for being part of the hop.
