Sneak Peek at KYLE

October 18, 2016 | Teaser Tuesday


Here’s a snippet from KYLE, releasing next month:

“Keys.” He held out a palm.
She leaned closer and dropped them in his hand.
Unable to resist just one taste. He captured her chin and held her still for a kiss that started slow and tender then she parted for him, inviting him inside and he plundered, claiming every centimeter of sweet, silky heat as his.
After he released her, she blinked. Her breaths as fast as the pulse beating at the base of her slender throat.
His wasn’t much steadier. The kiss had lit him up like jet fuel, but he jumped out, ran around, opened her door, and lifted her out of his rig, setting her on her feet. “Okay?”
She nodded still looking a little dazed.
“Go change.” He nudged her toward the house.
“Be back in five.” She flashed a smile as if he’d done something impressive, and stretched up, brushing her lips across his.
Fuck me, she’s sweet.
Since women seemed to think five minutes meant at least twenty, he checked the time on his dad’s old Zodiac Sea Wolf and headed for her ride.
Across the slush splattered rear door someone had gotten close enough to finger scrawl “Die Satan’s whore” in block letters. The nastygram hadn’t been there when he followed her home from the party.
His stomach knotted in reaction to the invasion and ugly words as if he’d been sucker punched. He forced himself to take a deep calming breath, grabbed a handful of snow, and smeared away the hateful message.
Noelle or one of her minions had trespassed on private property. No more need to worry he’d put Cat in danger. Clearly he had. She needed protection, more than he could provide while working alone. He damn well wasn’t going to endanger her any more than he already had.
He checked his watch. She’d only been gone three minutes. He got busy transferring her gear and settled into his rig. Thankful for the chance to make a few calls, starting with Ben, their cousin Jake, and Zach, one of his old USMC pals. He’d been his spotter during his first tour until a nasty bit of shrapnel sent the marine home early. He remained a close friend and was the owner of a first class security firm based in Seattle.
To his shock, she emerged from the house, bundled in a thick parka, leggings, and fleece lined suede boots, locking the door behind her as his thumb still hovered over Ben’s name.
He pocketed the cell and scrambled out of his ride. “Nice boots, but not too practical for field work.”
“This is exactly why I asked you to move the muck boots.” She narrowed her gaze playfully. “That’s the second time you’ve compliments my footwear choice. Who trained you?”
He chuckled. “My nieces, Laurie and Mattie. Toddlers don’t bother with subtly. They’ve made the importance of noticing their shoes optic-clear.”
Cat grinned back at him, moving her from beautiful straight into bombshell territory. “I bet they’re all kinds of adorable fun.”
He sucked in a needed breath and moved to open her door. “You changed fast.”
She scrunched her face in puzzlement. “I did say five minutes.”
“You did.”
“Not used to women, who mean what they say?” she teased.
“Fair warning, I tend toward plain speaking. Right now, I’m having second thoughts about leaving the Jeep here. Why don’t I just follow you?”
“Why not help save the environment and share a ride?” He countered, not anxious to explain about the target he’d painted on her back.
“I don’t want to drag you out into cold in an hour if there’s an emergency.”
“Do they happen often?” He stalled, scrambling for a convincing argument for him handling the driving.
“Not all that often, but always at the most inconvenient times.” Her expression remained convincingly deadpan, except for the dancing eyes.
“I’m willing to risk it.” He opened the door, boosted her into his ride, and hustled around to the driver’s side.

Wedding plans

October 4, 2016 | Teaser Tuesday


I’ve had such fun planning Cat and Kyle’s wedding! Her actual wedding dress is heirloom lace passed down from her maternal grandmother, but the back view pictured is fairly close to the dress in my head. The bride pictured looks nothing like Cat. This woman has her eyes.


But the hair is way too red, Cat’s is more a dark chestnut.

The book is in edits, so if all goes well, it should release this year, maybe even late this month!

LIAM Post Script

June 27, 2016 | Real life

Liam II

After winning the rights to publish Simply Irresistible back from the publisher, I made countless changes to the original manuscript, including renaming it LIAM. The biggest difference between the first and second editions is an epilogue that wasn’t part of the original story.

For those who read the early version, this is a bonus peek at Liam and Tiana after the events that happened in Simply Irresistible.

A warning for those who’ve never read either LIAM or the earlier edition, Simply Irresistible the post script scenes contain spoilers.

Another snippet from Liam:

The eastern sky lightened through the edge of the drawn drapes with the faint, tarnished-silver glow that foretold another winter dawn.

Liam snuggled back into bed and tunneled under the soft cotton of one of his tee shirts to caress his wife’s softer skin. Careful not to wake her, he freed one arm then the other. The material bunched at the base of her neck. He nuzzled one plump breast, absorbing the delicious feminine scent that was hers alone before retrieving the padded leather cuffs he’d stashed under the bed yesterday. Working with smooth efficiency, he fastened and tested the restraints, anchoring her wrists to the headboard and her ankles to the footboard without disturbing his sleeping beauty. Satisfied she was securely bound, he removed the wadded shirt and burrowed his scruffy face into her neck.

“Hi there.” Tiana’s lips curved into a smile she reserved just for him and her lashes lifted revealing a sliver of sleepy eyes. She tried to reach for him.

“What the—” She twisted, trying to free her arms.

He settled on his side, head propped on one elbow, waiting for her realize how thoroughly she was restrained.

Her eyes widened in surprise then her breath caught on a hitch and the delicate vein on her temple pulsed faster. Her dear expression softened and the sweet, musky scent of feminine arousal intensified.

He fucking loved the way she responded to his need for control.

Liam closed the distance between them, capturing her lips with his. She opened for him, eagerly encouraging his possession as his tongue tangled with hers and he explored every part his wife’s silky mouth.

When he ended the kiss, her gorgeous breasts rose and fell rapidly. He traced the light flush warming her pale skin from her dark hairline to her beaded nipples.

“I want to touch you too, Sir.” She writhed beneath his fingertips.

“Later, pet. This morning I’m in a mood to tease and taste you.”

“Of course, Master.”

The sweet words tugged on his dominant heart.

He sipped, nibbled, and licked his way from her beautiful face, along the side of her throat, to her collarbone and down her sternum before teasing the undersides of her lush
breasts. They’d grown larger and more sensitive with each child—a bonus he savored.

Pleasing himself he palmed the generous globes pressing them together and nipped the taut, dusky rose nipples.

Tiana moaned softly, arching closer.

He pulled back from the tightened tips and then lapped at them, denying her the strong suckle she craved.

“Please, Sir.”

“Please what?” He abandoned her sensitized breasts. “Tell me what you want, clamps?”

Teaser Tuesday

June 14, 2016 | Uncategorized

Liam caught Kyle’s attention and beckoned him over. He got a chin dip in acknowledgement as his brother made his way through the guests. Since finally graduating, he’d stepped up and shouldered at least half of the heavy lifting necessary to keep Sterling Enterprises rolling along like a well-oiled tank. His willing assumption of responsibility freed him up to be a husband and father in more than just name.

He didn’t begrudge a minute spent taking care of his brothers, but fatherhood the second time around was so much better. For one thing he wasn’t a teenager taking on single parenthood, plus Tiana by his side made all the difference, to say nothing of the immense pleasure involved in impregnating his wife.

Who would’ve guessed my second tour of parenting would be more fun than my first?

“What do you need?” Kyle drilled a finger into his ribs.

“You to take over greeting for a few.”

“Not a problem, where’s your better half?”

“Back from dropping the kids at Uncle Cam’s.” Unless something went wrong. Liam shook off a chill. He was never truly at ease when Tiana was out of sight. However, even a compliant woman balked at wearing a leash 24/7.

“She should be down soon.” Or maybe soonish if I have my way and when it comes to Tiana I always do.

“Did you want her for something in particular?” Liam narrowed his gaze, warning his brother to have a care answering.

“Yeah, I wanted an introduction to the stunning red head.” He tilted his chin toward Kate Stewart, DVM.

“Why, don’t you remember her?”

Kyle studied her profile for a moment. “There is something familiar about her, but I can’t place her and that’s weird. I never forget a beautiful woman.”

“Kate’s kind of a late bloomer.” Liam squinted at the vet’s blurred outline.

“Chunky, freckled Kate Stewart?” he asked in quiet shock.

“The same, all grown up now.” He pulled his glasses out of an inside pocket, slid them on, and brought the rest of the party into focus. Kate wasn’t in Tiana’s class, but then no one was. She did have big hazel eyes, lots of dark red hair, long legs, a great ass, and the breasts to match.

“Who’s she talking to?” Kyle kept his voice low.

“Tom Knight, the other vet working for Doc Hawthorn. He’s been trying to stake a claim for a while now. Not sure he’s met with any success.”

“Who’s the kid with her, her son?” Kyle helped himself to a flute of champagne from a passing tray.

“Teddy, half-brother. You’d know this stuff if you ever spent time with your own hayburners,” he prodded.

“I’ve been busy picking up your slack, besides Bran’s on top of everything.”

“Keep telling yourself that, brat.”

“Vice-president-in-charge-of-your-sorry-ass brat to you, bro.” Kyle swallowed bubbly.

“VP is the best you can hope for.” He crossed to the stairs.

“Hey, when are you coming back?”

“Later.” Liam headed up.
