Weekend Writing Warrior – 6/2/13

This week’s selection comes from book #6 in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Bustin’ Out All Over

She opened her mouth to protest his smug assertion but her hand had a mind of its own. Without thinking, she hauled off and the palm of her hand connected with his gorgeous ass with a ringing slap.

His groan came out tangled up with a startled laugh. “Yes, please, more.”

She squeaked in frustration, finally putting a bit of effort into wriggling out from under him. He let her go, peeling himself off her like the backing on a sticker.

“I can’t believe I did that. Never in my life have I ever met a guy I want to hit as much as I want to hit you, Quentin Halliday.”

Bustin’ Out All Over

Terri Ecklund wishes she’d never agreed to be Miss June. As billing manager for SBRMC, she could appreciate that the damn thing had raised a healthy amount of money to fund hospital improvements, but it also cost her big. She could deal with the sly snickers, crude jokes about her ‘assets’, and the perfect strangers whistling ‘June is Busting Out All Over’, but her boyfriend couldn’t.

When the pro-fisherman she hooked long ago cuts bait and takes the contents of their joint bank account with him, Terri scrambles to patch the pieces of her life back together but not before tearing a strip off the smarty-pants internet genius who set the The Men and Women of St. Blaise Regional Medical Center up to go viral.

Internet millionaire and St. Blaise native Quent Halliday nearly swallowed his tongue when Terri Ecklund, St. Blaise, Missouri’s god-given rebuttal to Pamela Anderson’s plastic surgeon, stormed into his St. Louis office spitting nails over the loss of her almost-fiancé.

Drawn to the sparks flying from her eyes and the lure of her bountiful curves, clever Quent knows the opportunity of a lifetime when he sees it. Without hesitation he drops everything to chase after the girl of his fantasies, and when he catches her, they’re both shocked to discover he may just be the man of her dreams.

Weekend Writing Warrior – 5/26/13

This week’s selection comes from book #6 in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Bustin’ Out All Over

“Jason Rayco dumped you,” he repeated, careful to keep his tone neutral.

Her head popped up. “Eight years,” she hissed. “For eight years I waited around, working two jobs, pouring everything I had into his career.”

Words escaped like bursts of steam, surprising them both. He saw the exact moment she took hold of the reins again, clamping her mouth shut and sitting up a little straighter. Quent stood, using his height for the slight advantage it was. Not that being a few inches closer to the ceiling would be an effective defense against what she was packing in that racy red dress.

The winner of the Love Letters Volume 1: Obeying Desire audiobook is: Laurie! Congratulations! There’s another chance to win below, so make sure you read through to the bottom!

Today’s post comes for H is for Hotshot – my contribution to Love Letters Volume 2: Duty to Please (coming THIS WEEK from Carina Press). Luke Whitehawk is a veteran smoke jumper. Tara Ferris is the hot young helicopter pilot determined to drive him crazy-in more ways than one. In this bit, Tara is trying to convince Luke that taking a chance on her is no riskier than leaping from a plane into flames.

****

“You taught me everything I know about keeping my feet on the ground. Now let go and let me teach you how to fly.”

“You’re jumping into the fire.”

“You do it every day, and it makes me burn.” He tried to retreat but Tara held her ground. She wouldn’t allow him to run when they were so damn close. She couldn’t. “If you pull back now, I want you to remember this the next time you call me ‘little girl’—I’m not the one running away, you are.”

“You could have killed yourself,” he rasped.

“I would never endanger my crew,” she retorted. “It was an engine alarm, I had her under control.” Luke opened his mouth to speak but the words caught. Startled by his strangled cry of frustration, she stared straight into his ebony eyes, willing him to truly see her for the first time. “Don’t you know me at all by now? I would never risk you. Never.”

Weekend Writing Warrior 5/5/13

This week’s selection comes from the latest in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Mr. Mayhem

May-MD

“Melanie.”

She tried to stifle a smile but failed miserably. The trembling of his muscles wasn’t from the strain of harnessing his lust or the result of pleasure rippling through that long, lean body. No, this time those glorious little quakes were the result of a blast of air conditioning and a lack of coverings. He was naked. As naked as the day he was born. And gorgeous. And tied to her bed, completely at her mercy.

Mr. Mayhem from Turquoise Morning Press

Lab tech Melanie Curtis claims Dr. Marc Mayhew’s shy smile won her vote for Mr. May, but the fact is, she’s been aching to get a taste of the delicious Pathologist’s mochachino skin since the moment she set eyes on him.

Quiet and reserved, Marc was happy to take refuge in his research until she walked into his lab. He tried to ignore the attraction that sparked and sizzled each time she drew near, all too aware of the strict edicts issued by the hospital’s Human Resources department, but he couldn’t deny that he wouldn’t mind subjugating himself to his bossy little subordinate. Over and over again.

The only variable he couldn’t predict was how far Melanie was willing to go to get the results she expected. When she tests his mettle, Marc finds he’s more than willing to risk everything on a case of chemistry run amok if it means he can claim her as his. For keeps.

This week’s selection comes from book #5 in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Mr. Mayhem

May-MD

“Marc.”

“Sir,” he whispered, staring straight into her soul. “Call me ‘sir’, Miss Melanie. I want you to save my name for when you’re coming.” He pressed his mouth to the hollow at the base of her throat. “Then I want you to scream it.”

Arching off the mattress, she gasped when one warm hand slipped under her pajama top. “Sir.”

“You don’t get to call all the shots.”

His voice came low and soft, wrapping around her ankles like smoke and wafting over her. Staring into his ebony eyes, it was impossible to pretend she didn’t know exactly what he meant. Precious oxygen seeped from her lungs.

“I don’t mind you callin’ some of them. Like what happened earlier…” His drawl deepened, flowing thick and rich as molasses over the rough edges of a raspy laugh. “As a matter of fact, I like a woman with a take-charge attitude.”

“The cuffs…” he said breathlessly.

Meeting his earnest gaze, she finished the thought for him. “Are turning me on like you wouldn’t believe.”

The startled laugh that burst from his lips cut through the tension around them. His fingers slid into her hair, gently dislodging the clip holding the dense curls. She gasped her relief when the clasp gave way.

He gathered handfuls of her hair and tipped her head back farther. “I’d believe it.”

“I’ve waited a long time for you to come back.” He brushed a tender kiss to her gaping mouth, drawing lightly on her full lower lip. Running his index finger along the collar of her T-shirt, he pulled her toward him. She swayed like a sapling in a March wind. He tasted her mouth, her cheeks, her jaw. “I’m not scared anymore, Sherry,” he breathed into her ear. “Stay awhile. Let me have you now.”

“We used to be friends,” he said, his voice low and gruff even to his own ears.

“Is that what we were?”

Regret weighed heavily in the saturated air, but his mouth ran dry. She blinked, the thick fringe of dark lashes fanning the flames heating his blood. As if drawn by an invisible string, her body swayed toward his. He cupped her cheek and stroked the line of her jaw with the pad of his thumb. Proximity alone wrung a confession from his parched lips. “I wanted you so much.”
