#TeaserTuesday One Night of Pleasure

One of my favorite stories is ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE. I loved Mark and Bridget and how they get together. I’m happy to say you’ll see more of them in EMBRACE THE NIGHT (early Summer). What I liked best about the story is Bridget discovering her sexy side, but even better, finding out that Mark loves her strength and courage more than her outer beauty. Mark is a smart man! LOL!

So here is an excerpt for you from ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE.

#TeaserTuesday Sweet Treats and One Night of Pleasure

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Seems like an appropriate day for a heroine named Bridget Sullivan who comes from a good Irish Catholic family. Although what she’s thinking of doing will likely send her mother running to church to say quite a few rosaries! LOL!

In this scene from ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE, Bridget and Mark have been dancing and sharing dinner and it’s time for dessert. The passion has been building between them and it’s about to get serious!

#FreebieFriday #Giveaway ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE

ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE erotic military romanceOMG, it’s Friday! Thank you! We had more snow yesterday. 7 plus inches of the white stuff and I am so done with it. I need warmth and sun and the beach! I’ve missed it all winter long since it’s just been either too cold or too snowy to go for a stroll along the boardwalk. I really need those to balance myself.

Since I can’t have one of those walks right now, how about a sexy book set along the Jersey Shore? ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE, my March 15 release and #5 in the Take a Chance series, is set in the southern part of the Jersey Shore, namely Atlantic City and Margate.

So what’s the giveaway on Freebie Friday? Be one of the first 30 people who leave the comment I WANT ONE on this post and I’ll send you an ARC of ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE. If you can, please leave a review and indicate that you received the book from the author in exchange for an honest review!

Now here is a little teaser for ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE!

Teaser

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?

Here is how I kind of pictured retired Navy Captain Mark Smith, the hero in the book.

#WriteWed Plotting with Friends & Lucy the Elephant

This weekend I got together with some writing friends from the fabulous Liberty States Fiction Writers. If you write genre fiction, you should really check out this organization. They’ve also got a great conference coming up in March with a number of workshops as well as editor/agent appointments.

I’m in the process of writing ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE and wanted to bounce some ideas off my friends. They were awesome in helping me firm up some issues that I had and right now I’m chugging along on the first draft of this novella. I’m loving Bridget who is my kind of girl. Laid back and more comfortable in jeans and work boots than a fancy gown or high heels.

Of course, her first sexy encounter with the hero, retired Navy Captain Mark Smith (who you met in STAY THE NIGHT) will put her out of her element and into those girly clothes she just hates.

Actually, you kind of hear about Bridget in ONE LAST NIGHT and you get to meet her at the end of STAY THE NIGHT.

I’m having fun so far in setting the opening of this story in an Atlantic City casino and researching where I’ll take Bridget and Mark in Margate. I got to stay in Margate once many many years ago and it’s the perfect setting for Mark’s home. If you are ever down in that area, make sure to check out Lucy the Elephant. Lucy is a national history landmark and is one of the last animal-shaped buildings in the world (I believe). It’s been used for several different things such as a restaurant and tavern and it had a nearby hotel. Here’s a photo of it and it’s sure to get a mention in the book.
