#WriteWed An Ugly Inspiration

Ugly is such a powerful word. It can shape so much of a person’s perception of themselves even when they are not truly ugly. Truly ugly isn’t about the physical. It’s about that person whose heart knows no compassion or love and is only interested in itself.

My heroine in ONE SPECIAL NIGHT (available August 12), Jasmine “Doc” Reyes, thinks she’s ugly, or at least part of her is ugly. She’s come home from war with both emotional and physical scars. Both are hard to handle, but the physical ones are more out there. More visible and therefore hard to hide or avoid.

Enter Tommy de Salvo who has his own ugly inside. His fiancee cheated on him during wedding preparations and Tommy is not about to trust another woman. But there’s something about Jasmine that calls to him and Tommy just can’t resist the puzzle that she is: strong and determined, but also vulnerable and lonely.

I loved bringing Tommy and Jasmine together to help them heal and put the pieces of their lives back together.

Yes, ONE SPECIAL NIGHT is an erotic romance novella, but I still want the romance and emotion of a full read. I hope that when you check it out, you’ll think that I accomplished that.

ONE SPECIAL NIGHT will be available everywhere on August 12th.


Paranormal Romance THE LOST

I’ve got a little teaser for you from the first book in my new paranormal romance series – The Sin Hunters from Forever Romance.

THE LOST will be out on July 26, 2011 and I can’t wait for the series to start. It’s a radically new concept: Energy gatherers who can become anything they want, suck energy from anything in nature – including humans – and use that energy was weapons in a variety of ways. Energy orbs, discharges to erase memories, you name it.

But amidst all that energy there is an even stronger force: Love. Adam Bruno and Bobbie Carrera are two unique and tortured individuals. Adam is emotionally wounded while Bobbie bears both the mental and physical scars of war. When they come together . . .

I hope you enjoy this little excerpt from THE LOST!
