#ManCandyMonday Chase & Natalie from UNDER THE BOARDWALK

I’m counting down the minutes to the release of UNDER THE BOARDWALK in the SUMMER HEAT box set! I hope you’ll like Chase and Natalie’s story since it was such a fun one to write.

Today’s Man Candy choice is Chase Smith, the hero of the story. I wanted a really upper crusty sounding name for him and Chase just fit the bill. The reality is that Chase is anything but rich. Chase grew up poor and had to work hard for everything he ever got. It’s important to Chase to be able to provide for Natalie, who did grow up with much much more.

Unfortunately that drive to succeed is a large part of what drove him away from his wife. I loved exploring how Chase tries to find himself again so that he can be the man with whom Natalie fell in love.

This is how I pictured Chase and Natalie during happier times, sharing some time on the Jersey Shore and just having fun!

#WriteWed Inspiration for ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE

One Night of PleasureIn Stay the Night you meet both Mark Smith and Bridget Sullivan, the hero and heroine of One Night of Pleasure (now available for pre-order).

This is part of the Take a Chance series, so I wanted to do a story about two people who stepped out of their comfort zones and reached for something that they didn’t think was within their grasp.

In Bridget’s case, it’s about allowing herself to explore her feminine side and a possible relationship with retired Navy Captain Mark Smith. Bridget doesn’t normally throw caution to the wind and do one night stands, but she’s tired of being alone and if she’s not getting the signals wrong, Mark is interested.

Mark Smith seems to have the perfect life. He’s sexy and successful. He has a thriving company and a lovely beachside home. A home that’s perfect for a family, but Mark thinks that a wife and family are something he can never have. But if he were to dream, it would be a woman like Bridget at his side. Strong, courageous and beautiful Bridget.

Here’s the official blurb for the book:

She wasn’t the kind of woman who wore fancy dresses or did one night
stands. . .

Bridget Sullivan preferred her Army uniform and work boots to elegant evening gowns. Getting all done up for some fancy Memorial Day gala wasn’t in her plans, but it’s hard to resist the thought of seeing handsome retired Navy Captain Mark Smith again. It also means spending time with the cadre of ex-military friends who have made her return to civilian life a little easier to handle. But when Mark presses for more, will she break her rigid rules for one sexy night?

The only thing he likes better than a woman in uniform is seeing her out of it . . .

Especially if it’s sexy Staff Sergeant Bridget Sullivan. Since meeting Bridget a month earlier, Mark Smith has been attracted to the gorgeous woman who seems intent on hiding her beauty and her courage. Bridget’s determination to make it in a usually male world, from her choice of the Army to her current construction job, intrigues Mark. When Bridget sheds her muddy jeans and sneakers for sexy high heels and a slit-to-there dress, Mark is more than willing to help her explore her new feminine side. But can one night of pleasure lead to more?
