Weekend Writing Warrior – 12/1/13

Posted on Dec 1, 2013 by Maggie Wells   9 Comments | Posted in Blog

Hard to believe it’s December and we’ve been through a whole year of Hot Nights in St. Blaise! Want to see how it all started? Meet Beth and Spence from Jumping Mr. January:

Again he shrugged, as if it were remotely fair for him to be standing there looking like…Mr. January. “I missed you.”


The toes of his boots stopped shy of the pointy tips of her shoes and she forced herself to hold her head high as his gaze swept from her hair to the spiked heels and back again. “That’s all there is to it,” he said, his voice soft, seductive, and oh-so-dangerous. “You can’t stop me from missing you, Beth.”

“We agreed—”

“We were stupid.”


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.

    Spence is definitely going to be surrendering his pants to Miss Watkins – she is certainly determined. Somehow I don’t think he’ll mind.
