“I couldn’t wait any longer. I’m hoping you can help me with this terrible itch.”

“Please tell me it’s not the kind that needs ointment.”

Her fingers tightened in his hair. “I need a dose of you. Twice.” She caught his bottom lip between hers and bit gently. “Daily.”

Seducing Mr. September

The Costa Nostra has nothing on the St. Blaise regional Medical Center Fundraising Committee when it comes to shaking people down for money. That’s the only explanation Pharmacist Mike Weber has for stripping down to nothing but a lab coat and a smile for a fundraising calendar.

Still, nothing could prepare him for frontal assault of Karen Horton. Cool as the most confident Don, she strolls into his store, grabs a jumbo box of condoms, and makes him an offer he can’t refuse.

Every night Mike Weber jogs past her house, shirtless, gorgeous, and absolutely oblivious. After years of watching life pass her by, Karen is ready to go for the gusto. Unfortunately, the gusto she wants is six-foot-five inches of shy guy.

But Karen is tired of waiting for the things she wants to come to her, so she launches a bold campaign guaranteed to make St. Blaise’s man of mystery take notice.

His fumbling made her nervous. Her bravado leaked from her like air from a balloon. She needed to retreat and regroup. She had to get out of there fast. But not before she did what she came to do.

Waggling the white paper bag holding the economy-sized box of condoms, she inched toward the pharmacy door. “So, uh, these will be in my nightstand drawer. If you’re curious too.”

Weekend Writing Warrior – 7/28/13

This week’s selection comes from the upcoming installment in my Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – August Awakening.

“I want you, Jenny Clyburn, even though you’re everything I don’t deserve.”

He carried her knotted fingers to his mouth and pressed a firm, damp kiss to the back of her hand. A fine webbing of blue-green veins mapped her translucent skin. “But I can’t help but think maybe we might be good for each other, too,” he said quietly. “I need to be in control to survive.” He trailed his fingertips over the curve of her jaw to the hollow of her collarbone. “You need someone to take the weight off your shoulders.” His body tensed, ready to spring the moment she gave herself over to the possibility.

August Awakening

The only things Jennifer Clyburn admits being addicted to are Caramello bars, shoe sales, and diet cherry Cokes from the Sonic. But there is one advantage to being ordered to attend alcohol awareness classes—she gets to spend a good hour each week ogling local bad boy, Alex Stephenson.

Once the crowned prince of St. Blaise, Alex grew up spoiled rotten and cocky as hell. The world was his oyster up until the day everything spun out of control. The red Corvette he got for his eighteenth birthday was a total loss. So was the sixteen-year-old girl in his passenger seat.

Ten years later, scarred and broken, Alex is back in St. Blaise leading the local recovery meetings and hoping to spare someone the guilt and grief he’ll carry with him the rest of his life.

Jenny Clyburn seems to be the kind of good-time girl he used to love, but he’s smart enough to recognize the demons that drive her. Her smart mouth is temptation incarnate, and her docile nature a siren song. Unable to resist, Alex takes it upon himself to teach her the best ways to master her impulses and surrender to that which she can’t control.

“Being afraid and living in fear are two different things.”

Her soft hand in his, he carried it to the collar of his shirt then slid her fingers under the fabric. The second her fingertips grazed the ugly raised scar on his shoulder, her lips parted. He held his breath, every nerve ending in his body screaming her name when she caressed the gnarled skin. Moths circled the porch light she’d left burning. Even the frantic fluttering of their wings wasn’t enough to stir the thick air. His toes braced against the stair riser, he exhaled a bit of his trepidation and attempted a reassuring smile.

“Afraid is a temporary thing, but fear never goes away.”

“God, I forgot,” she panted. “I forgot how good this feels.”

The chant came out in a rolling purr. Her hair trailed down her back and slipped over her shoulders as she rolled her neck and began to rock slowly. Too slowly.

“Touch me,” she whispered. “I need to be touched.”

She didn’t have to ask him twice.

Roman Candles

Pediatrician Mario Debrizzio is a single woman’s dream come true. He’s successful and confident, owns a gorgeous old home that cries out for a family, and is as talented in the kitchen as he is in the bedroom.

But when he loses his cool on the job, Dr. Debrizzio finds himself front and center with SBRMC’s chief headshrinker. Dr. Sophie Bernard is more than pleasant to look at, but the last thing he wants is to let the woman who has already messed with his head poking around in there.

No amount of distance can keep Dr. Sophie Bernard safe from the memory of the scorching kiss she and Mario shared at the SBRMC Christmas party. The man was hot as a firecracker and every bit as dangerous. She was also married at the time…technically.

Long after her divorce is final, Sophie fights the attraction. But when Mario holds a flame to her fuse, her fear and frustration explodes into a passion that burns up the hot summer night.

Sophie shot out of the chair like a heat-seeking missile intent on seeking the heat only this particular man stirred in her. Her mouth found its target, perhaps with a little less grace than she would have liked, but she was happy to trade aplomb for accuracy. He caught her easily. Too easily. Logically, she knew women threw themselves at him all the time, but the tiniest bit of hesitation would have been appreciated.

His lips shifted against hers, dampening the spark of pique and stoking the red-hot need smoldering inside her. From the moment she first laid eyes on the tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome doctor, she wanted him. In that particular moment, when everything she claimed she didn’t need was there in her arms, she realized she had one goal in mind over the past six months: This.

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.

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.
