#WriteWed Fixing Broken Things

I’ve always loved taking risks with what I write. Whether it was challenging people to believe in otherworldly beings, like in The Calling is Reborn series, or having them on the edge of their seats, like in The Gambling for Love series, I love taking that risk.

UNDER THE BOARDWALK is about risk, but also about fixing broken things.

Long after I wrote the story, I saw an interview with an older woman who had been married for quite some time. The interviewer asked her how it was possible that she had been married for so long. To paraphrase that wise woman, she said that she hadn’t lived in a disposal world. When something was broken, you tried to fix it.

I hope you enjoy this sexy and emotional story about how Natalie and Chase try to fix their broken marriage. I also hope that this sexy story helps chase away a little of today’s fall chill!
A passionate night under the boardwalk brought them together, but can Chase and Natalie rekindle that lost love and save their marriage?

Teaser

Natalie Ramirez has spent less and less time with her husband over the last year and more and more time alone. She longs for the happy days of summer when she and Chase would pass the time together on the beach and under the boardwalk, exploring the passion that simmered between them as hot as any summer sun.

Chase Smith had to work hard for everything he ever had, including his wife Natalie. His wife had never wanted for anything in her life and Chase didn’t want to disappoint her. But somewhere along the way, Chase lost sight of the most important thing she wanted: his love.

A passionate night under the boardwalk brought them together, but can Chase and Natalie rekindle that lost love and save their marriage?

#ManCandyMonday Rafe from STAY THE NIGHT

I have to confess that I really love Rafe from STAY THE NIGHT and since many of you don’t do Facebook, you’ll have missed him during last week’s #ManWars so I’m sharing him with you today.

What I love about Rafe is that he’s a big strong Navy Seal and seemingly invincible and yet inside, he’s so vulnerable and so in love, but battling it out of fear of being rejected. He feels as if he’s been left behind in the five years that he’s been at war while his wife has become someone whom he barely recognizes.

I also loved tackling a story where the romance is about two people who are already married. Let’s face it. Marriages have ups and downs and you can fall in love all over again sometimes.

You’ll see more of Rafe and his wife Elena in ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE that I hope to have out for you in mid-February. That is if I can get past post-holiday blues and work issues. I’ve been outlining the story and hashing out some language with my daughter. She liked what she heard, so I hope that’s a good thing.

In the meantime, I hope you like sexy Navy Seal Rafe.

#WriteWed One Special Night Inspiration

One Special NightIt’s really tough to say what inspires a book. When I wrote JUST ONE NIGHT, it was really just intended to be a standalone novella, but by the time I got to the end of the book, I wanted to see more of what happens with Jase and Nickie and I also wanted to find out more about Tommy. After all, he’s Jase’s best friend and Nickie’s brother, but beyond that, he was not only able to see that they were right for each other, he was also able to push Jase to do the right thing and finally confront those feelings.

It made me wonder about Tommy and what he was really like. Why could he see those feelings? Did he have feelings of his own for someone? Was he going to get his happily-ever-after?

Dealing with Tommy’s future also meant dealing with Jase and Nickie. What would be happening with them? Would their one night become something more serious? Would Jase’s military service impact the relationship and if so, how?

Of course, Jase’s military service inspired the heroine, “Doc” Jasmine Reyes. I liked having a military connection in the first story because I honor and respect our military men, women, and their families. I knew the second story (and also other ones since I realized just two wasn’t going to be enough to satisfy me! LOL) would also have a military hero.

“Doc” was the perfect choice! Jasmine is a real hero and I loved letting her have her one special night and who knows, maybe more than one.

I hope you liked these behind the scenes look at the inspiration for One Special Night.
