#TeaserTuesday – Sexy bit from ONE SUMMER NIGHT

Today’s teaser is a sexy bit from ONE SUMMER NIGHT. In this scene Maggie and Owen have just had breakfast after Maggie cancelled on Owen for their first weekend alone at the Shore. As the talk gets personal, Maggie realizes just how much Owen understands her and cares for her and soon the attraction pulling them together just becomes too much to resist.

Warning – this teaser is for mature adults!

As she pressed into him, she dug her fingers into his hair and cradled his head in her hands. Opened her mouth to invite him to enter. Taste. Savor.

God, but she was so sweet and responsive.

When he danced his tongue across perfect white teeth, she playfully chased it and then lightly bit his lower lip, jerking a groan from him.

He was hard, so hard, that he had to bring a stop to this or there would be no turning back. And as soon as he thought that, she shifted away slightly and met his gaze.

“I want you, Owen. I want this,” she said, laying her hand on his chest directly over his beating heart.

“I want it too, Maggie.” He’d wanted this since they were eighteen and he’d kissed her on that moonlit beach. Maybe even since they were children, playing on the beach together happily. Being with her back then had always seemed to make any day special.

Maggie smiled and pointed an index finger heavenward. “My bedroom is two flights up.”

“Good thing I work out,” he teased, bent, and scooped her up in his arms.

Maggie grabbed hold of his shoulders and laughed out a halfhearted protest. “You don’t have to carry me.”

Owen grinned. “I know what you spent all your summers reading in the gazebo,” he said as he hurried to the stairs and began the climb to her bedroom. Without any strain or hitch in his breath, he said, “I know what the heroes in those books do.”

She chuckled, pulled herself close to nip his earlobe, and whispered, “Bet you can’t guess what the heroines do.”

“Sweet Lord, I can’t wait to find out,” he said and quickened his pace up the stairs.

He entered her room and, with a muttered “Wow,” marched straight to her antique four-poster bed, with its artfully draped canopy of gossamer-light fabric.

Her body skimmed along his as he released her, and she slowly sank to her feet. As soon as she touched the ground, he rested his hands just above where the jeans ended, his palms slightly rough against that sensitive skin and hot. So, so hot.

With a gentle sweep upward, he bracketed her body beneath her breasts and urged her close, her hips grazing against his erection, trapped beneath the khaki he wore. The tips of her breasts, tight and hard with her need, just brushed the starched cotton of his shirt.

She inched her hands up to the first button of that shirt and half glanced at him as she deliberately, leisurely, slipped each button free until his shirt hung open.

“You’re killing me, Mags.” He didn’t need to say what he wanted, because it was obvious she wanted it too.

Maggie laid her hands on his chest, cupping his nicely defined pecs, brushing her thumbs across the hard paps as he eased his hands upward and mimicked her actions, cradling her breasts. Teasing the hard tips between his thumb and forefinger, each little tug blasting straight to her center, creating a sympathetic twist of need.

He grabbed the hem of her crop top and drew it up and over her head. Stopped to gaze at her in the sexy lingerie she was glad she’d worn.

He idly traced the swell of her breasts with the tips of his fingers and said, “You’re so beautiful, Maggie.”

She felt more than beautiful with him gazing at her like that. She felt…cherished.

Reaching behind, she undid the bra and slipped it off, baring herself to him, delighting in the swift inhale of his breath and the jump of his arousal against her belly.

He cradled her breasts again, his touch slow and unhurried. Patient as he learned just what she liked. A little tweak of her nipple followed by his sweet kiss. The long pull into his mouth and a crazy swirl of his tongue that made her knees buckle.

She grabbed hold of his shoulders, encountering the soft cotton, but she wanted to feel him. Only him.

She swept away his shirt, and he broke away from her only long enough to let it drop to the floor and then met her lips in a kiss.

Unhurried. Searching. Over and over, their mouths met as he hauled her close, her breasts crushed against the hard wall of his chest.

She opened her mouth and accepted the slide of his tongue. Danced hers along his until they were both breathing hard and there was no holding back.

Faster than a New York minute, they finished undressing, shoes, socks, khaki, and denim flying free until she stood before him in just the tiny bikini bottoms.

His touch was restrained, almost reverent, as he cradled her breast and then tenderly skimmed his hand down her body to the lacy edge of the panty. He dragged the back of his hand back and forth across the flatness of her belly, just above the low waistband. Then he dipped his hand lower, eased the fabric down her legs, and helped her step out of them.

#WisdomWednesday – Take the First Step

It’s hard to think about taking that first step into the unknown. Whether it’s a new relationship, a new book, or even revisiting something old that you’ve been trying to forget, it takes courage. But taking that first step is a necessary part of a journey that could be truly rewarding. So as hard as it is, take that first step.

#TeaserTuesday Jane the Virgin’s SNOW FALLING

Snow Falling by Jane Gloriana Villaneuva as soon as Jane the VirginIt’s Teaser Tuesday and today I’m sharing some teasers from an upcoming release, SNOW FALLING, a novel as seen on the Jane the Virgin television show on the CW. I was so excited when I was selected to work on this project a few months ago and many thanks to the show for letting me work with them to give Jane and Michael’s romance a happily-ever-after. SNOW FALLING is set in 1900s Miami when it became known as “The Magic City” due to the expansion of the railroads to that area and the immense growth of the city. It was interesting to read about the history of Miami at that time and incorporate that real life history with Jane and Michael’s story. I hope you’ll check out this book and fall in love as I did with the romance, humor, and emotion in SNOW FALLING.

#MotivationMonday – Per Aspera Ad Astra

You’re probably thinking “Aren’t Monday mornings hard enough without you tossing Latin at me?” LOL! Yes, they are tough and so are so many things in life. Lately it seems a challenge to just keep on going and yet, if you didn’t what would you accomplish? So this morning I told myself to find something motivating and came across that phrase: Per aspera ad astra. In English: Through Hardship to the Stars.

So when you’re feeling down, just keep that in mind. After the challenge comes the reward.

#FunFriday – A visit to the bookstore

As a book lover, walking into a bookstore is an experience for me. Walking around smelling all the books. Seeing all the covers. Checking out what’s on the shelves. I love it and of course, it makes for a long visit. If hubby is with me, he waits patiently. And waits. And waits. This photo shows how he probably feels during all that waiting. LOL! Have a great weekend!

#ThoughtfulTuesday Help Us Help Women Receiving Treatment for Cancer

I had just turned 22 when the doctors said my mom had cancer. Nothing in the world could have prepared me for that or for what would follow in the next few months. It was difficult to watch my mom, who was my friend and mentor as well as my mom, suffer and fade away. Just over a decade later, my father passed from the same disease.

It was no easier when nearly 12 years ago I heard the word again, only this time the Big C had come for me. I was lucky to have doctors who listened to my first complaint that something wasn’t right and even luckier to have the best doctors to treat me.

When I decided to do a book launch, I thought it would be fun to do it in my daughter’s store since it’s mentioned in ONE SUMMER NIGHT and then in more detail in WHAT HAPPENS IN SUMMER (#2 in the At the Shore series). But I also wondered what the two of us could do to help others while we celebrated my new release.

For that reason, a portion of the proceeds from book sales and sales at my daughter’s store during the book launch party will be donated to Mary’s Place by the Sea, a respite for women receiving treatment for cancer. Since some of you may not be able to make that book launch party in person, I will also be making donations for every copy of ONE SUMMER NIGHT sold from October 22 to October 29, whether online or in a book store!

If you are in the area, I’d love to see you! Here is the information for the book launch party!

    October 29 – 2 pm to 5 pm
    (formerly October 22 rescheduled due to conflict)
    Book Launch Party at
    OG Surf and Skate
    53 Main Avenue

#FunFriday Sexy or not? You pick the teaser!

I’ve always been partial to stories that have a little sexiness because I not only like seeing how the emotional relationship develops in a romance, but where it leads. I also like romances where the hero and heroine are equals in the relationship, supporting and helping each other through tough times. That’s the vibe I was striving for in ONE SUMMER NIGHT. A blend of partnership, sexiness, playfulness and tenderness. So how do I get that point across? Take a look at these teasers and let me know which one you prefer. The top one or the bottom or both? Which one grabs you?
