#WriteWed Secrets of Grand Central Terminal & Dare to Love from TAMING THE VAMPIRE

I’m so excited to have completed another story in The Calling is Reborn Vampire Series, especially this one since I’ve been intrigued with the hero, Vampire Slayer Benjamin, since TO LOVE AND SERVE. I won’t spoil what happens to him in that story, but suffice it to say I’ve been itching to do his story and give him the Happily-Ever-After that he deserves.

This story is actually a first in the series since neither FBI Agent Diana Reyes or Southern Vampire Ryder Latimer appear in the story, although they are mentioned. This novella is complete, but look for the continuation of Benjamin and Rhiannon’s story in FIGHT FOR LOVE, which I hope to have out in early 2017.

As for Grand Central Terminal, many of the scenes in DARE TO LOVE are set in and beneath Grand Central. I just love this building with all its amazing art and secrets. For example, the Whispering Wall just outside the Oyster Bar restaurant. No one knows for sure if it was intentional, but if you stand facing the wall diagonally across from someone and whisper, that other person can hear you clear as day.

Did you know that in the 1940s there were orders to shoot and kill any unauthorized person who tried to enter the area for the generators? Why? Damaging those generators would have crippled troop and supply shipments all across the East Coast. Look for scenes set down there as Rhiannon slowly comes into her Slayer powers and realizes that they come from some very unique places.

There is art everywhere you look in this important transportation hub. Here is some artwork above each of the tracks!

Besides the tracks and commuter areas, a very nice food market was built in what had once been an alley for deliveries to the Oyster Bar. There are many different kinds of shops for produce, cheeses, meats, coffee, baked goods. You name it! We often go there to pick up lunch or ingredients for dinner.

Hope you enjoyed this Write Wednesday look at Grand Central Terminal and DARE TO LOVE from TAMING THE VAMPIRE.

#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?

Man Candy Mark

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

#WriteWed #Military Heroes in the Coast Guard

US-CoastGuard-Seal.svgI’m in the midst of writing ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE which features sexy retired Navy Captain Mark Smith and veteran Army Staff Sergeant Bridget Sullivan. If the Sullivan name is familiar, it’s because you met Bridget’s younger sister Maggie in ONE LAST NIGHT. It’s also familiar because you meet both Mark and Bridget in STAY THE NIGHT, Rafe and Elena’s story.

One thing I always think about while writing one of these novellas is how I can give you a quick intro to some of the characters you might see in a future book. In ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE you’ll get to meet Lieutenant Commander Samantha Whittaker who is now in the Coast Guard and veteran Seabee Zack Rodriguez.

Why the Coast Guard (and I promise you’ll see more about the Seabees in another Write Wednesday post)? Well, I happened to be rescued by a very charming Coast Guard vet when I was stranded on a hotel balcony during an RT Convention in Orlando. To this day we both smile whenever we see each other and recall that very interesting (and embarassing) incident. You see, my friends and I had gone out there to have a glass of wine on a beautiful day. As we powershut a very recalcitrant sliding glass door, the security bar came loose and came down perfectly, trapping us on the balcony.

Luckily our hero walked by and seeing our dilemma, called for hotel security to come free us. He then graciously offered to get us some more wine as well. LOL!

So in his honor and to honor the service of our Coast Guard veterans, I thought it was time to highlight that branch of the military in one of the upcoming TAKE A CHANCE series novellas.

So here’s a little bit more about the Coast Guard, my Write Wednesday inspiration for EMBRACE THE NIGHT (late spring 2015), my story with Samantha and Zack.

Did you know the Coast Guard just celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the act to create the Coast Guard? You can click here to read more about the Coast Guard Act. However, the Coast Guard has been around since 1790. The 1915 Act was really more of a change of name of the service.

During times of peace, the Coast Guard is part of the Department of Homeland Security (as of 2003). During times of war, the Coast Guard is part of the Navy. Coast Guard heroes like Douglas Munro, a Medal of Honor winner, have saved countless lives during both peace time and war.

The Coast Guard is one of five military branches. Its motto is “Semper Paratus” in Latin which means “Always Ready.”

The Coast Guard does have an academy which is located in New London, CT. You can get more facts by clicking here.

And now here’s a look at the Coast Guard in action! If you can’t see the video below, click here to see the Coast Guard in action in Texas!
