Weekend Writing Warrior – 11/2/14

Posted on Nov 2, 2014 by Maggie Wells   10 Comments | Posted in Blog

Guess what, gang? I’m getting boxed!


The whole Hot nights in St. Blaise series will be available in a boxed set later this month! To celebrate, I’m going to share bits and pieces from the series. Here are 8 lines from book #1, Jumping Mr. January:

“I thought you thought I was a dumb jock.”

“Would it have mattered?”

“Mattered to me,” he said, turning to glance at her.

She pursed her lips and studied him for a moment. “Not in the least. I wanted to get in the back seat of that hot Buick you drove.”

He sputtered a laugh and turned onto a lane paved with sparse gravel and packed earth. “The words hot and Buick don’t belong in the same sentence.”


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 into St. Blaise with a plan to get into his pants, he finds she’s the one woman who can offer him something he doesn’t want to refuse.

That’s all for this week, friends! Be sure to check out all of the Weekend Writing Warriors excerpts!

    Ha! My exact thought on the whole hot Buick thing. 🙂 Looking back at high school can be fun, romantic and so embarrassing at the same time.

    So, so excited to get my hands on this boxed set! For a very brief time in my life I drove my parents’ boat-sized maroon-coloured Buick LeSabre to work every day. Now I’m a van girl. Funny how that happened….

    Well, maybe the Buick would be hot if he was in it….we went to senior prom in my date’s father’s Buick…excellent excerpt!

    I have to agree on the Buick thing. Not hot, but he sounds like fun

    We forget that men have such a soft belly when they make themselves vulnerable…great banter…and congrats on the box!

    I can’t think of any models that Buick makes. La Sabre?? Anyway, it was fun snippet.
