A Wild, Hot, Romantic Adventure

It’s Friday the thirteenth, the day before Valentine’s day, and the day the Fifty Shades of Grey Movie releases. Coincidence? Just saying.

Do you know how I feel about Valentine’s day? I think one of my books will most efficiently answer that question for you.

Cute blonde lady with soft skinFinding Destiny was never meant to be a holiday romance, but it just kind of turned out that way. The first line of the story happens to start with, “I absolutely hate Valentine’s day.” Of course that’s a little harsh. The entire story is actually centered around three ladies who wanted to go away and pamper themselves for Valentine’s weekend to avoid the stress of the holiday while being single, but what ends up happening is their piece of shit truck breaks down during a huge snowstorm in the middle of nowhere and three knights in shining armour come to their rescue—on snowmobiles.

Escape by Fiction said:

“Finding Destiny is a wild, hot, romantic adventure.”

Excerpt:

When he pressed his lips in her hair, she knew she was a goner.  With nothing but a kiss and a few small facts about his family life, she had fallen for him.  And she couldn’t even hide it.

“Thank you for this,” she whispered.  Why had she voiced her thoughts?  She wished she could take it back, because Skylar knew she wasn’t talking only about saving her from a snow cloud.

Then Skylar chuckled, and his desirous voice tickled her ear, making her quickly forget about her embarrassment.  “You don’t have to thank me, Destiny.  I only do what I want, and right now I want to be here with you.”

His words whispered over her body, and she fought the urge to thank him again.  Then she felt him curling around her, and his lips unexpectedly brushed across hers. (more…)

Prologue for Beautifully Broken – Part Two

I promised to share the rest of the Prologue for Beautifully Broken with you, so here it is!

Prologue: Wake Me From This Nightmare (Part Two)

The snow crunches beneath my snowmobile boots, as I cover my bare hand with my glove. The hood lifts without any trouble, which is a relief. I tinker around until I find what appears to be the problem. I wipe the corrosion away from the battery and replace the cap. Honestly, the truck is a mess. It could be a host of things.

I peer around the hood and catch Felicia rubbing her gloved hands together, even though she’s inside the truck. Those fashionable mitts do nothing but look pretty. Lucky for her, we should be out of here in a matter of minutes.

“Give it a try,” I holler.

She glances at me until the fog dissipates from my frosty words. She tries the key once, but the engine still doesn’t turn over.

I hold up a hand to stop her, while I use my other to adjust the connections. Even with my snow gear on, it’s frosty. The snow starts to rain from the heavens, covering the road with a wave of white blankets. The hood of the truck had barely been blocking the wind, when suddenly a blast of snow whips around it and slices across my face. (more…)

Prologue for Beautifully Broken – Part One

Fine art photo of a woman-angelARC’s of Beautifully Broken went out a matter of days ago and reviews are already starting to come in! I thought I’d share part of the Prologue with you today. If you’ve read the first story in the series, Finding Destiny, you’ll recognize that this Prologue takes you back into the story, giving you the inside scoop of what happens when Matt, Felicia and Natalie take off to rescue Natalie’s truck from a snow bank.

Prologue: Wake Me From This Nightmare

My hands are freezing. It feels like my fingers might fall off if I don’t finish this job soon. It’s funny what a little bit of pussy can do to a man. Felicia has me eating out of the palm of her hand. She wants her friend’s truck fixed. I’m a mechanic. It only follows that I fix the truck, get her friend on the road and get Felicia and her wild ways back in my bed.

I am so eager to get her alone again that I agree to an onsite visit. I open the door to my truck and the three of us cram in. I shift her into four-by-four and we set off past the place where I’d met Felicia a matter of hours earlier. (more…)

Book Review: Granted Wishes by Tanya Vought

Something magical is happening in New Hope…

Granted Wishes was unlike any other story I’ve read before. The characters are quirky, sweet, determined, stubborn at times, but truly likeable and overall good people who have been dealt a raw deal in life. Gracelynn is worn down from the loss of her husband and it seems no amount of time will heal her broken heart. She still manages to be one spunky gal, who happens to be really good at getting Gio’s boxers in a bunch. When an accident leaves her stranded at his cabin, she has to be careful what she wishes for.

Is a romance just a romance?

Pet Peeve #1: Reading Books Out of Order

There’s nothing worse than really getting into a story only to learn that it wasn’t the first book in the series.  Of course, since you love it so much, you’re bound and determined to read the first book and so you buy it and it’s okay.  But I’m sorry to say, it’s just not the same.  Especially in romances.  It stands true for me to this day.  I’ve picked up book number two in a series on a number of occasions and to date I’ve loved the second more than the first.

Welcome to my world

I don’t know what it is, and maybe it’s just me, but I seem to fall in love with characters in a sequence, just the way the author intends for me to.  By already reading the first set of characters in the next book, I’m already privy to the dynamic of their relationship and I think it steals the nostalgia of their first meeting.  The respect for their journey seems to get lost somewhere along the way, since I already know what the end result will be.

 

Now, I know that a romance is a romance, and (more…)

The Teaser You’ve All Been Waiting For!!

Here’s what I’ve been working on. JUST RIGHT, Book 4 in the Twisted Series. (Subject to change.)

TEASER:

This is Aliah we’re talking here, from Harley’s perspective…in jeans

She pulls the hair tie from her high pony and shakes it out, until long waves of silky hair are framing her face and dangling down to the curve of her lower back.  Her hair whispers across the bareness of her skin, like chocolate silk.

“So, is that a yes?”  He’s not below begging at this point, if she is to say no. (more…)
