#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!


The SUMMER HEAT Box Set is specially priced at 99 cents for a limited time and is now available at:

#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?

I hope you’ll take a moment to check out One Night of Pleasure. It’s available for pre-order at the following retailers:

The Shifter’s Kiss #Erotic Paranormal Romance #FreeRead

THE SHIFTER'S KISS erotic paranormal romanceWhile I love my romantic suspense and vampire stories, it’s always fun to change it up with some other kind of demon, in this case a shifter. But unlike NIGHT OF THE COUGAR where I explored one of my favorites – cat shifters – OMG sexy purring alpha heroes whew – the shifter in THE SHIFTER’S KISS isn’t warm and soft and purring.

She’s powerful, fast and can be deadly. She’s also one of the last of her kind which made her story even more compelling for me. Think about this: Would you give up what you were for love? Especially if it meant the possible extinction of your race?

That’s the choice Nali, my shark shifter heroine, has to face in THE SHIFTER’S KISS. Here’s a little blurb about it and a free read!

After almost losing his life in the line of duty, firefighter Victor Edwards turned to his true passion: the ocean, the one place he feels at peace. By day, he studies a magnificent shark. By night he is haunted by erotic dreams of a beautiful woman, filled with a longing he can’t understand.

Nali is almost the last of her kind. She knows it’s dangerous to swim so close to shore, but she is drawn to the scarred man watching her and craves his touch on her human form. She can’t help revealing herself to help Victor when he’s injured—and offering herself to him for one week of pleasure. For she only has a few days before she must return to the sea…

THE SHIFTER'S KISS Erotic Paranormal Romance Novella by

Thursday 13 Paragraphs

Welcome to today’s Thursday 13! Today I am sharing with you 13 paragraphs from my February erotic paranormal romance release, NOCTURNAL WHISPERS.

    With a final check of the last item on the list for that area, she was about to return to her office when she noticed yet another box. It was tucked behind a large crate containing a chunk of an obelisk rescued from the area flooded by the Aswan Dam project. The weight of the stone inside made the crate impossible for one person to move, which was likely why someone had not bothered to reach the other box. But Kate refused to be as lazy.

    Dragging out the items next to the obelisk, she half climbed onto the lower shelf and grabbed the cardboard box. Shimmying it from behind the heavier crate, she crawled out into the aisle and pulled the box into the light.

    A fine layer of dust covered it, a testament to how long it had been since anyone had touched the carton. The yellowed cardboard was another sign of age for the roughly two-and-a-half-foot-long package. Kneeling before it, Kate peered at the handwritten note on top.

    “Do not open.”

    There was no signature or date on the warning, and the writing was rather erratic, as if the words had been scratched in haste, or by someone not in full possession of his faculties.

    Kate didn’t need a knife to cut the tape sealing the top; it was so old it had long ago lost its ability to stick.

    She hesitated as she grabbed hold of the box flaps, a combination of nervous excitement and trepidation gripping her. A chill erupted at her core from that mix of emotions, but she pushed aside her fear and opened the box.

    Inside was a small but carefully preserved sarcophagus. The human features painted on it were not quite realistic, as if the artist had been struggling to capture the youth of whoever lay within. Judging from the size, it had to be a rather young child, possibly even a toddler. Despite the age of the inhabitant, green eye makeup enhanced the face depicted on the coffin. Kate recalled that several historical texts and hieroglyphics showed Egyptian children wearing such makeup. It hinted at the fact that ancient Egyptians had thought certain colors possessed sacred energy.

    Kate sat back on her haunches, examining other details on the sarcophagus. Gilding covered a good portion of the burial piece, and at its center, a series of small green amulet stones had been set into the surface.

    It was in such pristine shape and so unusual due to its size that for a moment Kate wondered if this wasn’t some miniature replica created for display purposes.

    Reaching out, she laid her hand on the sarcophagus in the hopes of determining if it was of modern origin.

    But as she did so a shock snaked up her arm and tra veled to her center.

    Longing arose, so sharp and powerful that Kate cried out and fell back, breathing heavily. Physical need had her wet and aching, but that response was twisted together with a yearning so deep it made her want to weep.
