Weekend Writing Warrior – 5/19/13

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.”

Weekend Writing Warrior – 5/12/13

Today’s post comes for H is for Hotshot – my contribution to Love Letters Volume 2: Duty to Please (coming May 20th 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.

“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.”

Cover reveal!

I’m home from RT13 and I have so much to share!

First, MR. MAYHEM (Book 5 – Hot Nights in St. Blaise) is released!

May-MD

If you haven’t had a taste of the delicious Dr. Marc Mayhew, be sure to check out my Weekend Writing Warrior posts. The man is made of yum!

And if that wasn’t exciting enough, I got the cover art for June! Check out the gorgeousness that is BUSTIN’ OUT ALL OVER!

June_MD

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.

Whooooo hoo! I can’t wait to share it with y’all!

Cover reveal!

We have our cover for Love Letters Volume 3: Wicked Whispers! Wanna see?

LoveLettersVol3

Tasty, huh?

Here’s the scoop on this sizzling hot volume:

Verbal foreplay goes a long way in these four steamy stories in Love Letters Volume 3: Wicked Whispers.

I Is for Indecent by Christina Thacher
Annie Forrest doesn’t think flirtatious Stefan Cox is seriously interested in her—until he starts describing what it will be like when they strip away their inhibitions and their clothes. But do they have anything in common besides their gift for dirty talk?

J Is for Jaded by Maggie Wells
Voice actress Julie Poplin secretly thinks about rocker-turned-sound-engineer Vaughan Hatch when she needs to make passion leap from the page while narrating a steamy audio book. But their recording session takes a seductive turn when she accidentally speaks Vaughan’s name instead of the hero’s…

K Is for Kick-Start by Ginny Glass
Author Sophie Maddox has a bad case of writer’s block and a distractingly handsome editor clamoring for her newest sexy romance. She’s tempted by Oliver’s offer to use his place to write—and even more tempted to act out scenes when a typo reveals she’s been using him as inspiration.

L Is for Lessons by Emily Cale
When Chloe turns to her friend Bethany for help earning some extra cash, she’s shocked to discover that Bethany is a phone sex operator…and is intrigued by her offer to teach Chloe the ropes. But neither of them is prepared for the unexpected desire their lesson unleashes.

Love Letters Volume 3: Wicked Whispers will release June 17, 2013, but you can pre-order it today!

Weekend Writing Warrior 4/21/13

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

“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.”

Mr. Mayhem coming soon 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.

Look!

The cover art fairy dropped a little mayhem into my inbox this morning! Feast your eyes on the delicious Dr. Mayhew!

Friday Flashers – Guest Flasher!

Evelyn Jules is here to show off her bits!

Friday Flashers

Hi everyone! My best pal, Maggie, was so kind to have me here today. I might have a slight in because I’m her Clodhopper supplier, but she totally liked me before she knew the chocolate-covered graham cracker clusters existed. I think. 😉 Anyway, I’d like to take a minute and flash you. Not that kind of flashing, you dirty birdies. I just finished writing my first ever cowboy story called Chasing Destiny, and I’d like to share an excerpt with you. Ready for it? Giddy up!

~~~~

He shook his head. “I guess you’ve lost your sense of adventure.”

Indignation lit her up like a firecracker. “I have not.” She wanted to slap the no-good know-it-all, but her mind and body weren’t known for their communication skills. So she kissed him. A firm, possessive kiss that caught them both by surprise. Her lips burned from the stubble that grazed his upper lip. Her eyes were open wide, not from fear but adrenaline.

“How’s that for adventurous?” she panted.

“That’s a good start,” he growled, gathering her in for another lip lock. This time he took the reins. His arms banded her to him. His lips lingered against hers, and when she gave him the barest opening, his tongue swept into her mouth. She shuddered from the impact of the kiss but he held strong, proving to her beyond a shadow of a doubt that the reward was greater than the risk. Being in this man’s arms for a moment was better than a lifetime of unfulfilled dreams.

Hope you enjoyed! Thanks again for hosting me, Maggie! 🙂

This week’s #8Sunday is taken from D is for Detained my contribution to Love Letters Volume 1: Obeying Desire coming April 8, 2013!

“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.”

CARINA_0413_9781426895357

Love Letters Volume 1 contains four hot novellas that will tempt you to submit to desire:

A Is for Assignment by Ginny Glass
Lane Heywood is the last person Cameron Isley wanted as his partner in an undercover investigation at a sex club. But with the sexy psychiatrist masquerading as his Domme, he’ll have to submit to her erotic torment—and try to control his all-too-real lust.

B Is for Bondage by Christina Thacher
When Rachel Cooper begins BDSM lessons, she soon starts fantasizing about her instructor, Marc Thibaud. They’re not supposed to have sex—until one lesson crosses the line…

C Is for Curious by Emily Cale
Mistress Rebecca Greer has had her eye on The Black Rose BDSM club’s shy receptionist, so when Hilary “accidentally” interrupts one of her sessions, Rebecca decides to give her a taste to satisfy her curiosity.

D Is for Detained by Maggie Wells
He was the preacher’s son; her parents owned the local sex shop. Sherry Adams and Tyler Prescott’s attraction was forbidden when they were teenagers, but years later Deputy Tyler takes out his trusty handcuffs to show her just how good they could be together.

This week I’m sharing a snippet from my upcoming release, Always Miss April (Hot Nights in St. Blaise book #4).

“It’s Sherriff,” he corrected. Pulling the flowers from behind his back, he thrust them at her. “You’ve been served.”

“Oh, my,” she said as she gathered the bouquet into her arms. “You brought me guilt flowers? What did you do?”

Tipping his hat back, he flashed a smile. “Impure thoughts.”

Always Miss April – Coming soon from Turquoise Morning Press

AlwaysMissApril

The tender feelings Sheriff Delavan Cormack has for his lifelong best friend, Marilyn Dumbrowski, are the worst kept secret in a tiny town where everyone knows everyone else’s business.

When Marilyn’s teenage son starts acting out, Del uses his badge and their friendship to force the marriage he has wanted for too damn long. What Del didn’t know was the cool, competent ER nurse and hardworking single mom has been keeping a secret that has her burning red hot day and night.

With everything he dreamed of having in the palm of his hand and so much more than he bargained for happening in the bedroom, Del is faced with figuring out exactly how far he’s willing and able to go when he discovers that the power of his love may not be enough to satisfy the woman he adores.
