Six Sentence Sunday – 12/30/12

This week, I’ll be sharing six sentences from upcoming release. Jumping Mr. January is book #1 in my Hot Nights in St. Blaise series. Look for a new story each month!

Welcome to St. Blaise, Missouri: Home of The Men and Women of St. Blaise Regional Medical Center

When the St. Blaise Regional Medical Center Board of Directors hired hometown girl, Beth Watkins, to jump start their public relations, they never imagined she’d be stripping their most prominent doctors, nurses, and support staff down to their birthday suits in order to beef up the hospital’s bank account.
Six men and six women were chosen to represent the best and brightest of this little town nestled in the heart of the Mark Twain National Forest. They also happened to be the hottest tickets in town. Soon the fundraising calendar is spiking temperatures throughout the Show Me state, and the men and women of St. Blaise are setting their small-town nights on fire.

Jumping Mr. January

When she pitched the idea for The Men and Women of St. Blaise Regional Medical Center fundraising calendar to her Board of Directors, Beth Watkins thought she wrote the perfect prescription for the small town hospital’s budget shortfall.

The moment she got a green light, Beth went after the man she wanted to be her Mr. January and so much more. She had no time to waste. Hunky EMT Robert ‘Spence’ Spencer was leaving for medical school within weeks of the photo shoot she arranged and there was no way on earth Beth was going to miss the chance to sneak a peek at her old high school crush in all his glory.

Focused and dedicated, Spence wants bigger things than his hometown can offer, but when brainy, sexy Beth Watkins breezes back into St. Blaise with a plan that includes getting into his pants, he finds she is the one woman who can offer him something he doesn’t want to refuse. 

Six sentences from Jumping Mr. January

“One track mind,” she admonished.

“I had the highest score in Gross Anatomy, and I owe it all to you.”

“Are you saying my anatomy is gross?”

“I’m saying I want to spend the foreseeable future studying your anatomy. You’re infinitely more interesting than those diagrams.”

Beth couldn’t hide her smile.

“Don’t do that,” he ordered gruffly.

“Do what?”

“Don’t be embarrassed.” Spence cleared the rasp from his voice. “Don’t look away. God, you don’t have any idea how many times I’ve thought about this…you…us…”

“I want you.”

She gasped softly and the curtain of her lashes rose, unveiling eyes bright with delight. “I knew it.”

Spence chuckled and pressed the pad of his thumb to her plush lips once more. “Nothing to brag about, Beth.”

“There are sixty-three other women wishing they were here with you right now.”

Daring Miss December

Straight-laced hospital administrator Oliver Watkins has the heart of a rebel.

Coming of age in the free-wheeling seventies meant that Oliver’s rebellion manifested itself in always doing precisely what he was expected to do. He married his college sweetheart three days after graduation, passed out pink bubble gum cigars the day his daughter was born, and worked hard to provide his family the lifestyle they deserved.

Now, with his wife gone and his daughter grown, the survival of St. Blaise Regional Medical Center has become his main focus in life. That is, until the results of a routine blood test to give him the nudge he needs to indulge in the one act of rebellion he can no longer deny himself—Anne Silverstein.

Free-spirit Anne has enjoyed a smorgasbord of experiences, but none shaped her life more dramatically than finding a lump in her breast at the ripe old age of twenty-six. She has learned to embrace her passions, indulge in the simple pleasures, and take each day as it comes.

Perma-pressed, Ollie Watkins, stumbles into her office obviously looking for more than a few tips on lowering his cholesterol, and throwing caution to the wind is a no-brainer for the daring dietician. But when Anne and Oliver cook up some home remedies that leave them both ravenous for more, one day at a time becomes both not enough and way too much.

Six Sentences from Daring Miss December

He stopped when her palm pressed against his hammering heart. “But I know you don’t want to think about tomorrow, so I’ll tell you I love you today, Anne Silverstein.” He shrugged and shot her a winsome smile. “I’ll love you tomorrow, but I can wait to tell you again then. You love me too, which works out well. Before you know it, we’ll both have lived the future we always wanted.”

Nabbing Mr. November

The doctor becomes the patient when a turkey hunt gone bad lands Luke Langston in St. Blaise’s overrun emergency room with a keister full of birdshot and at the mercy of intern Elena Mendes. Aside from the obvious Dick Cheney jokes, he has to endure the abject humiliation of having a woman he never got round to calling pluck bits of lead from his ass.

Elena can’t wait to pull the last shard of shot from Luke Langston’s magnificent ass. The minute she’s done, she is going to strip off her gloves, march into the waiting room, and shake his assailant’s hand. Hell, she may even tongue kiss the guy. It’s about time Dr. Iceman is taken down a notch. Or twenty.

Elena can’t resist the sparks that fly each time she and Luke butt heads, but she can’t help but wonder: How much heat will it take to melt the ice-man’s heart?

Six sentences from Nabbing Mr. November

“What happens if I open the closet?”

“All hell breaks loose.”

Chuckling, he approached the bed and dropped her onto the crazy quilt. Her startled laugh faded into a hum of approval when he planted one knee on the edge of the mattress and followed her down. “I don’t think I’m going to make it ‘till dinner,” he whispered. “I may need an appetizer to hold me over.”

Six Sentence Sunday and a celebration!

Yesterday, I typed ‘The End’ on the first draft of my December Hot Nights in St. Blaise novella (coming Nov 2013) and I’m so giddy I can’t see straight! Here are the official stats for this series as of today:

12 novellas written over a period of 10 months and 16 days. That’s 12 hot heroes, 12 feisty heroines, and 12 steamy love stories(emphasis on the love and the story, but with enough steam to keep things interesting) in over 284,000 words.

I thought I’d celebrate by sharing a snippet from October AND giving away an advanced read copy (ARC) of book #1 – Jumping Mr. January.

All you have to do is comment on today’s post by midnight, and I’ll pick a winner on Monday 11/26. Sound good?

Here are six sentences from Ogling Miss October:

He needed to grab his tiny tyrant of a daughter and beat a path for home before he did something irrevocably stupid.

Turning back to Susie he mumbled, “I’ve gotta get you into bed.”

Her eyes flared with amusement, and Warren’s soul died the first of a thousand slow, painful deaths as the realization that he’d said something stupid instead sank in.

“Wow.” Susie beamed at him, obviously delighted by his complete and utter mortification. “Most guys would buy a girl a corndog first.”

Here are six sentences from Seducing Mr. September:

“You were avoiding me?”

His hand slipped up her arm, his palm molding to the curve of her shoulder before sliding up the column of her neck. “I was trying to avoid disaster, but then you walked into my store and made that impossible.”

“You’re calling me a disaster?”

His nod came slow, but there was no way he could deny the havoc this attraction would wreak in the nice, quiet life he’d found for himself in St. Blaise. “You’re the most beautiful disaster I’ve ever seen.”

“Jesus, you taste incredible.”

He kissed her again, hard and possessive. For a second she wondered if there might be steam coming out her ears. His tongue demanded her response and his hands ran rampant all over her. The urge to surrender to him, body, heart, and soul was a physical ache. Need knotted in her throat, burning like a coal and eating up the oxygen in her lungs.
