Here’s a little something sweet for you: 8 lines from Daring Miss December (Hot Nights in St. Blaise #12).

“I have no breasts.”

Her announcement turned him to stone. Every muscle in his body braced for impact as his mind barreled ahead like a runaway train. For one crazy, breathless minute, he dared to hope she was making a self-effacing remark about being modestly endowed, but down in his gut he knew she meant exactly what she said. Swallowing hard, he scrounged for his voice, hoping the right words might come to him by the time he located it. In the end, all he managed was a deep, raspy, “No?”

She nodded but made no move to face him. “I thought I should tell you up front. I know you lost your wife to cancer, and I wanted to be as open with you as possible in case….”

DARING MS. DECEMBER

It’s never too late to learn the truth about love…if you dare.

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.

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 give him the nudge he needs to indulge in forbidden fruit.

Dietician Anne Silverstein 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. In the years since she triumphed over death, Anne has learned to embrace life by taking each new day as it comes.

When Ollie Watkins, stumbles into her office looking for more than a few tips on lowering his cholesterol, throwing caution to the wind is a no-brainer for free-spirited Anne. But the home remedies Anne and Oliver cook up together leave them both ravenous for more. Suddenly one finds one day at a time is not enough and the other fears it’s way too much.

Yesterday was my birthday and I’m full of cake! Here’s a little something sweet for you: 8 lines from Daring Miss December (Hot Nights in St. Blaise #12).

“Tell me what you want.”

Dark lashes lowered and Oliver’s shoulders slumped. The flush in his cheeks finally began to subside when he gave in and let gravity suck him back into the chair. His long torso rounded. The crisp tailored shirt he wore gaped between buttons, unaccustomed to this new elasticity borne of surrender.

“You,” he said when he looked up at her at last, his gaze startlingly vivid and direct. “I want you.”

His confession sparked a smile that warmed her down to her toes.

New release!

Hot Nights in St. Blaise book #11 – Nabbing Mr. November is now available!

Nabbing Mr. November_Maggie Wells

Here’s the scoop on Luke and Elena:

There’s nothing like a butt full of birdshot to help a girl nab an elusive man.

The doctor becomes the patient when Luke Langston lands in St. Blaise’s overrun emergency room with a keister full of birdshot. Worse than the obvious Dick Cheney jokes, he has to endure the abject humiliation of having the one woman he wanted but never quite got round to calling pluck bits of shrapnel from his ass.

The minute Intern Elena Mendes pulls the last shard of shot from Luke Langston’s magnificent tuchas, she strips off her gloves and plants a big, wet kiss square on his assailant’s lips.

It was about time someone took Dr. Iceman down a notch. Or twenty.

Luke’s cockiness makes Elena crazy, but she can’t resist the sparks that fly each time she they butt heads. Every time he’s near, she’s compelled to turn it up a notch, curious to see how much heat it will take to melt the ice-man’s heart.

She doesn’t know Luke has been on a slow simmer since the day he first saw her. A tease, a taunt, a whispered confession and a heated kiss are all it takes to make their attraction boil over into something too hot to handle.

“I don’t think I’m going to make it till after dinner,” he whispered. “I may need an appetizer to hold me over.”

She gave one of those maddening little hums that drove him wild. He covered her with his body, fitting himself to her in a way that seemed impossible for two people of such disparate height, but utterly imperative to his sanity. Her satisfied mewl vibrated under his skin and shot jolts of arousal straight to his groin.

“I could go for a little nibble too,” she whispered as he trailed kisses up the side of her neck.

Nuzzling the rippling waves of jet-black hair spread across the comforter, he ground against her. “I was thinking more like big bites.”

“Shower room.” She peppered his cheek and jaw with hot, frantic kisses. He hesitated for a fraction of a second, and her teeth found the tender skin of his ear lobe. Her fingers tightened in his hair and a strangled groan ripped from his throat. “Don’t think. Don’t fight me,” she whispered. “Just this. Just us.”

Weekend Writing Warrior – 9/29/13

This week’s selection comes from the next installment in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Ogling Miss October.

Ogling Miss October_Maggie Wells

She settled against his side, her cheek cushioned on his chest, her hand splayed over his stomach. Warm and sated, she drifted in and out of a doze. Warren, on the other hand, fell asleep with the conviction of a man with two orgasms under his belt and pillow beneath his head. Draping her leg over his, she drank in the sweet serenity of his profile.

Sighing, she closed her eyes and ran her hand low across his belly. Even in sleep, he responded to her touch. She smiled, taking in the outline of his cock pressed against the sheet draped low across his hips, impressive even in its semi-aroused state.

Warren’s body was a work of art.

Ogling Miss October

After five years as a single dad, Warren Mueller can spout the reasons why purple is ‘so much cooler’ than pink, wield a fairly competent glue gun, and fumble his way to a decent set of pig-tails. The only thing he hasn’t figured out is how a big, clumsy farm boy like him caught the attention of an exotic beauty like Susie Chen.

A tiny Asian-American cursed with more brain that brawn, Susie has always been attracted to big, burly corn-fed men who drive pick-up trucks and spend their weekends fishing, hunting, and paddling canoes.

She likes Warren Mueller, not that she could ever have him. The protective barrier the town keeps around its young widower and his little girl that seems impenetrable…until the night of the St. Blaise Elementary Fall Festival.

If a picture says a thousand words, a single snapshot of Warren speaks volumes to Susie. He wants her as much as she wants him, and if he isn’t a big enough man to admit it, she’ll just have to show him the way.

“I’m too big and too clumsy.”

“I think you’re perfect,” she answered honestly.

“I’ll hurt you.”

“No, you won’t.”

“I’ll crush you—”

“Good.”

He barked a sharp laugh and shook his head, turning away enough to avoid looking directly at her as he said, “It’s been years, I’m practically a virgin.”

That not-so-little admission tripped the trigger on her smile. “Just how I like ‘em.”

“Hi, Warren.”

The soft greeting undercut the high-pitched screams of sugar-high children, filtered into his subconscious like smoke and sent a rush of heyhowdoyoudo surging straight to his groin. The husky timbre of the simple greeting echoed in the deep, dark recesses of his mind. The place where nothing sparkled with glitter. The spot Susie Chen claimed as her own the second he laid eyes on her. There, the only pink things were the pearly sheen of her skin and her soft, smiling lips after he’d kissed her senseless.

Every nerve ending in his body screamed ‘Hello, Susie!’ even if it took his tongue a half hour to untwist itself enough to say the same. Sweet and mellow, Susie Chen’s voice was pitched a little too deep to match her fragile build and exotic features, and there was something about that discordance that plucked some strings deep inside him.
