Today I’m featuring March Madness – #3 in my Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – one hot story each month in 2013!

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.

March Madness

 March_MD

Shelli Ann Jones never considered ‘It takes one to know one’ an effective pick-up line, but when she runs headlong into St. Blaise Regional Medical Center’s elusive Mr. March, she revises her opinion.

Trauma Surgeon Kevin O’Shea should come with a sign that reads BEWARE OF THE DOG, but Shelli Ann couldn’t hold that against him. She only wanted him for his body. At first.

Kevin is fascinated by his new neighbor. So fascinated, he might be turning into peeping Kevin.

The tables turn when Shelli Ann uses the same meaningless flirtation, casual intimacy, and careful standoffishness Kevin thought he had trademarked against him, forcing him to unleash the full force of his dogged determination in his pursuit to win the heart of the only woman who could break his.

Here’s a taste:

Christ, you’re hot,” he growled.

“You’re hot too.”

He laughed. “No, I meant…I can feel you….”

She arched her back and the sensation of hot woman pressing against hard dick blew up the tracks his train of thought had been traveling. Turning on his heel, he pinned her to the nearest flat surface and reclaimed her mouth. The fridge rocked in time with her circling hips. Her hands fluttered, touching him everywhere, but not nearly enough. Relinquishing her mouth, he peppered her jaw and throat with hungry, wet kisses.

She hiked his shirt up to his armpits then raked her nails down his back. “Hurry, boy,” she whispered.

A long, low groan ripped from the soles of his feet. His body bowed, shying from the pain but all the while begging for more. She did it again and he thrust against her, mindlessly seeking the comfort of her body as lines of fire raced down his back.

“Beg.” She murmured the word against his ear. His body shook, need and exhaustion

battling for precious ounces of strength. God help him, he almost gave in. He almost sank to his knees and begged the woman to let him fuck her until they both passed out. He was this close. Until she added, “Come on, Tiger. Beg.”

His grunt of frustrated disbelief gave him just enough propulsion to whirl away from the fridge. Juggling one laughing, gyrating, maddeningly eager woman, he stumbled to the bedroom. Dumping her on the center of the bed, he followed her down. He pulled her hands from his neck and pinned them high above her head. The echo of her laughter bouncing off the walls faded as the sparkle in her eyes kindled.

She arched off the mattress, lifting her chin to the ceiling and leaving her throat exposed and vulnerable. He went for the jugular, scraping his teeth against her throbbing pulse, sucking the tender skin into his mouth and soothing it with his tongue. Her hips bucked. Her chest heaved. He raised his head and peered into blue eyes clouded and hazy with desire.

“I never beg.”

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. 

A snippet from Jumping Mr. January:

“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.”

Friday Flashers 3/22/13

Friday Flashers

Today I thought I’d share a bit of a short story that’s been collecting dust in a file folder for a few months, but is about to get a delightfully sexy overhaul. 🙂 The working title of this story is Going Deep.

Gathering all the ammunition in her arsenal of ace-reporting, Brooke lobbed her most pressing, hard-hitting, newsworthy question at him. “Why did you kiss me?”

“I wanted to.”

He answered without missing a beat. The realization that he’d expected her to ask made her cheeks flare, but the need to take him down a notch burned hotter. Feeling vulnerable, she struck back at the one spot she knew might still be touchy for him.

“Pretty ballsy for a quiet guy like you to kiss the Homecoming Queen in front of the whole school. Must have taken weeks of planning. Were there charts involved?”

Brian’s smile faded, but he kept the oh-so-familiar smirk in place. The sardonic eyebrow twitch that dogged her all through high school was back too, but she knew the blow hit home. She’d been high school royalty—popular, pretty, and well-liked enough to be voted Queen of every dance as well as Student Body President. His only social triumph was being elected President of the Science Club.

His eyes narrowed but remained locked on hers. “You mean a nerdy guy like me.”

The intensity of his stare dredged up a raft of insecurities she thought she’d jettisoned years before. “You hated me all through school.”

“That’s not true.”

His voice was melodious and deep. The confidence ringing through the cooled molasses thickness of his drawl proved more seductive than poetry. He wasn’t that nerdy boy anymore. This man knew damn well the effect he had on women.

She held his gaze. “Why am I here?”

“Your paper wanted an interview.”

The simple answer wasn’t good enough. “Why me?”

“I wanted you.”

Happy Friday, my friends!

Friday Flashers 3/15/13 – So darn lucky in love!

Photobucket
I am very lucky in love…now. But until I met my hubby, I was what was commonly known as a Tragic Spinster.
It wasn’t that I didn’t have my fair share of chances. I did. And maybe someone else’s share as well, but that’s a different story. You see, I’d always assumed I’d grow up, get married, have babies, then live happily ever after.
Yeah…That didn’t really happen.

So, you see, I hit my thirties without having found my ‘special someone’ and had to adjust my preconceived notions of love. I had a full and happy life without that all-encompassing romance, but that didn’t mean it wasn’t a difficult pill to swallow. Yes, my family and friends loved me. In my own hyper-critical-but-not-too-nutso way I loved me. I just wanted someone taller, hairier and generally more testosterone-y to love me too.

One crazy stroke of luck later, love found me at last. I met my husband because my business card was drawn out of a hat. An endless cycle of seminars forged a common bond between strangers who lived very different lives hundreds of miles apart. The telephone turned into our loveline. I joined a frequent flier program.

Until I stumbled into a seemingly impossible love I hadn’t realized I was too damn lucky in love to let the chance pass me by. Backed by a wealth of love and support from my family and friends, I packed my bags and turned my life upside-down.

My romance may not have unfolded as I originally envisioned, but that doesn’t mean I’m not living my happily ever after. That’s why I consider myself pretty darn lucky in love!

Now it’s your turn to get lucky! *wink*

Tell me about a time when a random stroke of luck changed your life, and I’ll enter you into a drawing to win digital copies of the first THREE Hot Nights in St. Blaise novellas: Jumping Mr. January, February’s Fling, and March Madness.

(Must be 18! Two winners will be drawn. Contest ends at March 18,2013 11:59PM)

And don’t forget to hop around! There are more than 300 blogs participating. The more you comment, the better your chances of getting lucky and winning our Grand Prize!

Now what are those prizes?

Birthday blog for Evelyn Jules!

It’s my BFF’s birthday – it’s one of the big-ends-in-a-zero birthdays! Sending out big peanut butter wishes and kisses to my partner in crime, Evelyn Jules!

To celebrate, I turned the tables on my favorite girl and asked her to answer the same questions she tossed at me when I visited her blog earlier this month. Check out her answers and be sure to wish her a happy birthday in the comments!

cake

****

Hi, everyone! I’m so happy to be here today, on this, the day of my birth! I had so much fun with these interview questions. I hope it gives you all a chance to get to know me better!

Describe yourself in three words. Quirky, happy, peanut-butter-addict

Any nicknames? One of my buddies calls me Julyn. I’d rather not talk about my other nicknames. There are scars. 😉

What was your favourite Christmas present? My favourite present of all time has to be the 10 free lessons at Circus School. And a close second is my moon shoes.

What’s your dirtiest secret? One time I smeared Nutella all over my face. And I liked it.

In your opinion, what’s the most important part of the sandwich? This is a really tough question for me to answer. Obviously the bread is important. But I think the condiments can make or break a sandwich. The condiment quotient is key.

As authors we tend to have to research many bizarre and unusual topics. What’s the strangest thing you’ve Googled research-wise? Well, I wrote a story set in a penis museum. *nods* It’s possible I researched things such as ‘the length of a crocodile’s penis’.

What was your favourite childhood toy? Fisher Price Little People. I still have them. And their bus. And their house. And their pool. And all their little cars….

Share your favourite word or phrase with us. Positivity! I can’t help it. I just love the word and everything it represents. It makes me ridiculously happy. It’s my mantra.

Do you believe in love at first sight? I do. I’ve never experienced it personally—not yet, at least—but I do wholeheartedly believe in it.

What writing accomplishment are you most proud of and why? A few weeks ago that penis story I mentioned became a print. I mean, it’s part of an anthology which is now in print. I’m so touched that my first print is a penis print. I’ll stop saying penis now.

If you had the opportunity to live one year of your life over again, which year would you choose? Hands down, 2012. It was the best year of my life. I accomplished so many things I never dreamed possible.

What’s the funniest/weirdest/dirtiest status message you’ve posted on a social networking site? @EvelynJules I think my closest friends are the ones I can call a filthy whore and get away with it.

Quick and dirty:

Cake or pie? Can’t I have both? Oh, fine. I choose rainbow chip cake with whipped cream icing.

Jocks or nerds? I’m gonna have to say jocks, ‘cause I’m a bit of a jock myself.

Coke or Pepsi? Um, water? I don’t like pop. 😛

Boxers or briefs? Boxers.

Poolside or beach? I am a total beach girl. I get sand in bad places.

Pancakes or waffles? How about a panfle?

Baked or fried? The health-conscious, salad-eating side of me will kick my butt for this, but gimme the fried food. Guhhhhhhh.

Aaaaaand, last but not least, tell us about your new book!

Cheapskates_EJules_SM

Cheapskates in Love is a romantic comedy that pokes fun at the world of online dating.

Here’s the blurb:

It’s couples’ skating night down at the local rink and Elena Armstrong can’t seem to keep her cocky jock blind date around long enough to knee him in the balls. Sadly, she was too much of a cheapskate to pay for a membership to an online dating site and based everything on Leonard’s personality profile alone. Big mistake.

At the opposite end of the rink, Ben Kessel, another cheapskate on a blind date with Iris, the ice princess, is having a similarly miserable time. Elena, a hater of all things sports-related, inches out into the skating world butt-first and collides with Ben. After sharing their hilarious and horrifying dates-gone-wrong stories, the two disappear and make everything right again on the floor in the players’ dressing room. Almost everything. They forget to exchange numbers. Now these two cheapskates need to make the ultimate sacrifice: pay for a membership to the online dating site so they can track each other down. But is the possibility of love really worth the price of $24.95 per month?

Six Sentence Sunday – 1/27/13

This week, I’ll be sharing six sentences from book #2in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – February’s Fling – releasing this week!

Don’t miss book #1 – Jumping Mr. January available NOW from Turquoise Morning Press!

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.

February’s Fling

February

Having a tough enough time reestablishing her credibility in the wake of the calendar’s success, Sharon Malloy refuses to jeopardize her career for a fling with an inappropriate man. No matter how badly she aches to be flung.

The sexy Finance Administrator may be fresh off the world’s most amicable divorce, but she’d long passed the age of giving in to reckless impulses. The problem is, when Chad Holgren touches her, it doesn’t feel reckless. It just feels right.

Sharon’s determination to play it cool only fuels Chad’s fire. Determined to prove he has what it takes to make her happy, he puts her through her paces time and again, stretching the boundaries of their relationship and hanging on tight when Cupid’s arrow catches them both with their pants down.

Six sentences from February’s Fling: (warning – naked yoga ahead!)

“Prayer position,” he whispered in her ear. Taking hold of her wrists, he kept his gaze locked on the mirror as he guided her into the pose. When her palms touched, he covered her hands with his. “Look.”

Sharon slowly lifted her gaze to meet his in the mirror. His dick nestled into the crevice of her ass as he tipped his chin to the ceiling and arched back into a sun salutation.

“Breathe in,” he whispered.

The hard ridge of his erection wasn’t going to help her bike-short-wedgie situation. “I feel that.”

“Feel what?” he asked, not bothering to smother the chuckle in his voice.

“Are you just happy to see me?”

He pushed her t-shirt higher, slipping his fingertips under the wide band of her sports bra and whispered, “So happy.”

“Say it.” The words tumbled from his lips, low and urgent. Spence refused to cringe. He wouldn’t be ashamed of the need fueling them. He’d handed his dreams over to her. The least she could do was give him the love he knew in his heart was already his.
