Welcome to Sinful Saturday! Below you will find 7-10 sentences from my newest release, Bidding Wars.
He was close enough now that she felt his warm breath touch her skin. Opening her eyes, she saw his focus was on her lips—his mouth inches away. If she made the slightest movement, she’d taste him.
She ached to grip his shirt and pull him to her. If they kissed, it would be passionate and ignite a fire deep within her. She hadn’t kissed another man since Steven. Could Luke be the first?
She pushed up on her tiptoes. She was going to do it. Reaching out, she was about to wrap her hand around his neck. Her gaze was locked on his, and it was as though they were moving in slow motion.
“Sheriff, you in there?” A man pounded on the door, sending it flying open.
Wow! What a month. Two releases. I'm worn out. Thank goodness summer vacation is around the corner and I can relax. Oh wait, I'm a writer, I don't really get to relax too much!
Today is the official launch day of Bidding Wars, my first full length sweet. This book is very dear to me and I hope that its well liked by readers. This was one of those stories that literally hit me out of no where. And this so far has been the hardest story I've had to find a home for. Yes, I write erotic, and my Brookfield series is pretty tame, but still sexy. Well this story is very sweet. The intimate scene is pretty much closed door. It's cracked just a little. And this just might be why it was so hard to find a home.
Trust me, I don't think it's because it was a bad story. This one is full of my own passion. But, sex is in right now and I think it was hard for some houses to take a chance on it. And you know what, that's perfectly fine! I'm very pleased with who the story ended up with.
With the release of Bed, Breakfast, and You, I decided it was time for a GIVEAWAY!
So, what will I be giving away?
Your choice of any book in the Brookfield Series AND a Starbucks gift card. You need a nice beverage while you read, right? Now if you've read them all (and I'd like to think you have), we'll of course work something else out if you're the chosen winner.
But for now, it's simple, feel out the rafflecopter below. Currently, I am thinking there will be not 1, but 3 winners! And who knows, as the week goes on, I may add more.
Don't laugh. But you see that photo? Its my first attempt at a flower garden. The area is more shaded then I had thought. It's right next to my front door and my door has sun on it all day. This little spot...not so much. Only early morning sun. So yes, those are fake flowers in the pot on top of the frog. I didn't want to commit flower murder.
Planted are impatients--that I bought my mistake. Guess it was a blessing in disguise since these are shade flowers. And also in there is creeping phlox. I've had these flowers now for a little over a week and I hope the garden perks up soon.
I think I may have to move the creeping phlox, because the flowers are falling off and these flowers like their sun. I'll give them a little longer and then move them. Hopefully by the end of May I can update with a more full and flowery garden.
Got any gardening tips you can share?
I love cats! They are do darn cute. For your entertainment--and mine, here are some cute LOL cats!
The release of Bed, Breakfast, and You is right around the corner. As in ONE WEEK AWAY! YAY! Be on the look out on May 3rd!

Welcome to the Save a Tree, Read an eBook hop sponsored by Rebel Ink Press.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I promise not to keep you too long. One reason I joined in on this hop is one, I have a book with Rebel Ink Press, and two I love my eReader. I'm definitely all green there. I have not bought a paperback in over a year...maybe two since I got my first eReader. I love e-ink. I love the flexibility of the bookstore at my finger tips. I think I might even have a book buying addiction!
Happy Saturday! Today I am sharing a small sneak peek into Bed, Breakfast, and You. The next story in the Brookfield Series.
Jace broke the kiss momentarily to trail a kiss down her neck to her collarbone, giving himself a peek at what she had inside her shirt. Damn, she had a full set and his tongue begged to taste. To dip down and lick between her breasts. Claire must have sensed how he was feeling. She pulled his face back to hers. And then she spoke and nearly gave him a heart attack.
“I think we should go back to my place and sleep together.”
Cameron Manning has never forgotten his first love. Of Irish descent, he met red-haired, fiery tempered Lacey Kerrigan in England, but her family returns to Ireland unexpectedly and they haven’t any means of contact. He finds her and receives the surprise of his life.
Lacey is thrilled to see Cameron, but is afraid of being hurt again. She keeps her distance and rebuffs his advances while he’s in Ireland, certain that a long distance affair will never work. But when tickets arrive for her to visit his home in Canada, she realizes his love is true and is willing to give them a second chance.
Fate intervenes when they find a murdered man on Cameron’s back deck. All evidence points to Cameron as the killer. Can their reawakened love survive the stress of a murder investigation? Or will it be the catalyst that drives them apart forever?
