Okay, time to test your memory and muster some participation.

Over the next four Fridays we will post a question about one of four Madison Lake books. Each correct answer counts as a point and four points equal one grand prize. If more than one person gets all four answers correct we will have a blind draw.

Today’s questions:

In the book Where Daffodils Grow Wild what is the name of the character who rescues Proberta at the Beltane Festival?

Our lucky winner for day 11 of “The 12 Days of Kisses” is S. She submitted the kissing (more like full on grope fest) scene from “Top Gun”. This classic 80’s film features an uptight, leggy, shoulder-pad-wearing Kelly McGillis who falls for a laid back, gum-chewing, slightly cocky Tom Cruise. This love scene “had me at hello”, and then it developed into a full on love making scene, complete with appropriate 80’s blue tinting. The previously uptight McGillis somehow winds up in an oversized mans shirt. Yummers all the way. Nice job S. I hope your prize brings you kisses just as passionate, but maybe not quite as blue as this one. xo Madison.

The build up to the kiss is probably more sexy than the kiss itself. When Kelly McGillis chases Tom Cruise after being hard on him in public, and finally admits “I just Don’t Want Anyone to know that I’ve fallen for you”…. and Kiss… and cut to blue tint sex scene.


Your prize: Armani 400 Maestro lip color stick. It goes on wet, and stays on matte for those long, kiss-filled nights. Enjoy.

The Twelve Days of Kisses: Day 10

Posted on: December 22nd, 2012 by Madison Lake No Comments

I’m not saying it’s the flashiest kiss, nor is it the sexiest kiss, but it certainly is the kiss that warms our hearts, and makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Again… and again… and again. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched “It’s a Wonderful Life”, but each and every time it makes me cry a little, and hold all that are dear to me just a little bit closer.

This brings us to my tenth and final post for “The Twelve Days of Kisses”, and now it’s your turn. If you haven’t already, please share with me your favorite kissing moment (not yours personally… unless you want to) from film, book, history, pop culture. Tomorrow’s post, and the post on the 24th will feature the two lucky winners. They will also receive Madison Lake’s lipstick. So come on… meet me under the mistletoe. All you have to do is enter your name, email and favorite kiss in the form below. We will only post the kiss, not your name, so please don’t be shy.

xo Madison
