Weekend Writing Warriors #76!

Hello, my friends! You're all looking lovely today! :D Welcome back to another exciting week of reading and writing and commenting and all that jazz. It seems I'm a bit of a release tramp this month so I'm changing tracks again to share an excerpt from Crossing the Line which will be available in all its glory this week! :)

Here's the blurb: Madison Kelly is an erotic romance author from Canada on her way to her first ever writing conference. Across the border. A trunk full of dirty books and dildos proves enough to amp up her nerves and make her lips flap faster than the maple leaf flag.
But she's not going anywhere until George Petropoulos gives the go-ahead.
The Greek god of a border guard has something other than national security in mind when he detains this particular citizen. He can’t help but be charmed by the juxtaposition between her stammering blushes and the racy books she writes.
A hot and heavy interrogation brings out her inner sex goddess, one that she’s been hiding in the pages of her books, and leaves them both wanting more. But will they be brave enough to cross the line again? 

And heeeeere's an excerpt!
“How long will you be out of the country?”
If she’d been writing their story, right around this point George would pin his smoldering gaze on her and she’d answer in a breathy voice, ‘Why, you gonna miss me, hot stuff?’ And then he’d smile and tell her it was time for a strip search. And she’d sigh and blush and pretend it was such a chore for him to pat her down in places that so needed to be patted down.
Fantasy George had her pinned to the table before real-life George put a stop to it in the most effective way possible: he pressed a warm palm to her bouncing knee.
“What are you thinking about?” he whispered. 
“Umm. Is this a trick question?”

Check out this beautiful cover for Crossing the Line! Couldn't be happier with the way it turned out! Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead! :)

Weekend Writing Warriors #75!

First off, thank you all SO much for your amazing comments last week! I didn't get a chance to reply but I want you to know how appreciative I am. You're all awesome! Today I'm sticking close to home so I'll be sure to make the rounds. And I've decided to share another excerpt from Body Check since it went over so well last week! 

Here's the blurb: Alicia Holden is the ultimate hockey fan. She eats, sleeps, and breathes the game, but there's one real reason for her devotion. And his name is Mike Converset. When an opportunity comes along to win a charity dinner with her hockey heartthrob, she leaps at the chance.

He's absolutely nothing like she imagined. Rough, tough, and in no mood to impress, Mike assumes Alicia's like every other woman who's come into his life, but he soon learns she's so much more. They share a connection that brings them closer together in mind and body. But is their romantic encounter simply a one-night stand, or can they take their passion into overtime?   

And here's an excerpt, skipping ahead a little bit. This is shortly after Mike and Alicia meet for the first time for the charity dinner. 

“So…it’s really amazing to finally meet you. I’m a huge fan of…of yours and I—” His tongue darted out to lick the crumbs from his lips and she faltered mid-sentence. “Uh, I don’t ever, um, miss a game. Even if I do, I, you know, record them, so I can watch them as soon as I get a chance. Which is usually the next day. I’ve actually, uh, lost a lot of boyfriends because of you.”
“Why’s that?”
“I’m a, um…screamer.”

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors! 

Body Check is featured in the HEAT WAVE boxed set, now available at all your favourite online retailers! Six sexy stories for sultry summer nights, including three bonus stories! Cheapskates in Love is also part of the set. Be sure to get yourself a copy for less than a buck! :) 


Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead!! :)

Weekend Writing Warriors #74!

Goooood Sunday morning, my friends! Welcome to another edition of the Weekend Writing Warriors! Today I'm totally switching gears and sharing an excerpt from Body Check which was recently published as a bonus story in the Heat Wave erotic romance boxed set!

Here's the blurb: Alicia Holden is the ultimate hockey fan. She eats, sleeps, and breathes the game, but there's one real reason for her devotion. And his name is Mike Converset. When an opportunity comes along to win a charity dinner with her hockey heartthrob, she leaps at the chance.

He's absolutely nothing like she imagined. Rough, tough, and in no mood to impress, Mike assumes Alicia's like every other woman who's come into his life, but he soon learns she's so much more. They share a connection that brings them closer together in mind and body. But is their romantic encounter simply a one-night stand, or can they take their passion into overtime?   

And heeeere's an excerpt:
“You idiot, that was a perfect pass! What does the guy have to do, spoon feed ya?”
Pounding her fists against the cushions, she rolled her eyes. It was no wonder every man she ever dated stopped calling her soon after watching a game with her. Hell, one date didn’t even make it through the third period. It might have had something to do with the flying elbow that landed in his left eye. It wasn’t her fault the goal was waved off. The poor guy walked out with a bag of frozen peas plastered to his face and he still promised he’d call; he didn’t.

As I mentioned earlier, Body Check is part of the Heat Wave erotic romance boxed set that is now available for the low, low price of 99 cents! Six sexy stories for sultry summer nights, including three bonus stories! Another one of my stories, Cheapskates in Love, is also featured in this collection. Be sure to get yourself a copy while they're hot, hot, hot! ;) 



I'm off to a family reunion today! Wishing everyone a wonderful day and week ahead!! :)

Weekend Writing Warriors #73!

Hello, again, hello! Hope you're all doing well! I'm sharing another nutty eight sentences in today's WWW excerpt, so let's hop to it!

Blurby for Nutcases: It's the year 2033. Since so many people have developed allergies to peanuts in this century, the government has banned peanuts and all peanut-related products, including (*gasp*) peanut butter. Side note: I think that was the most anyone has ever used the word 'peanut' in a sentence. Well, as you can imagine, Morgan, my heroine, refuses to live in a world without PB. So, with the help of my hero, Clark, they build their own peanut-butter-making machine in the secret basement of her home and begin the business of bootlegging. Also, they share a few pb kisses, etc, etc. :-D

And now the excerpt, continuing from where we left off: 

“I just don’t want you to crush me.”

“Too late, I have a major crush on you.” Leaning closer so her lips were within inches of his, she whispered, “You can sleep with me, but you have to pay the toll first.”

“You think you drive such a hard bargain?” His lips eagerly met hers, firm and demanding. The force of his kiss propelled her backward and he climbed over top of her, straddling her thighs. “It’s much nicer up here.”

“Were you all lonesome by yourself?”

So this Tuesday, July 1st is Canada Day, and I will be celebrating this momentous occasion for the very first time in our nation's capital: Ottawa, Ontario. Apparently it's a street party that goes on for blocks, with live music, buskers, dancing, general merriment, and I'm sure even a few Mounties will show up for some eye candy. I mean, to keep us all in line. Wishing everyone a spectacular week ahead!! :)

Weekend Writing Warriors #72!

Hey! Hi! Hello! Welcome back to another exciting weekend of warriors who write! Thank you all so much for the fabulous feedback last week. You wouldn't believe how motivating it is. :) Ready for some more nuttiness? Here goes!

Blurby for Nutcases: It's the year 2033. Since so many people have developed allergies to peanuts in this century, the government has banned peanuts and all peanut-related products, including (*gasp*) peanut butter. Side note: I think that was the most anyone has ever used the word 'peanut' in a sentence. Well, as you can imagine, Morgan, my heroine, refuses to live in a world without PB. So, with the help of my hero, Clark, they build their own peanut-butter-making machine in the secret basement of her home and begin the business of bootlegging. Also, they share a few pb kisses, etc, etc. :-D

And now the excerpt, continuing from where we left off: 

“Why are you throwing dolls at me?”

She fought a smile as her eyes adjusted to the darkness. Instead of chucking the doll back at her, he wrapped a protective arm around it. Such a softy. “Because it’s fun.”

The bed springs squeaked in protest, then she heard his feet on the ladder. She propped her head on her elbow and the smile finally broke free when he appeared. “Make some room, I’m not sleeping down there.”

“You lost rock, paper, scissors fair and square.”

We are now entering the final week of school. I've spent the majority of my weekend marking assignments and writing report card comments, and you know what? I'm gonna miss this. As much as I'm thrilled that the end is in sight and summer break is upon us, I will so dearly miss teaching every day and interacting with students and co-workers. My first year of teaching has been everything I dreamed it would be and more. Can't wait to see what next year has in store! :) Wishing you all a fantastic week!

Weekend Writing Warriors #71!

Hi, gang! Happy Sunday to you, and Happy Father's Day to all those fine men out there! I'm home celebrating with the guy who's been wrapped around my finger since 1983. And I'm pretty nuts about him too. :) 

Speaking of nuts, I've decided to use the WWW as a way to motivate myself to finally finish my nutty story. You may remember it. It's called Nutcases. 

Here's a blurb-ish thingy about it:  It's the year 2033. Since so many people have developed allergies to peanuts in this century, the government has banned peanuts and all peanut-related products, including (*gasp*) peanut butter. Side note: I think that was the most anyone has ever used the word 'peanut' in a sentence. Well, as you can imagine, Morgan, my heroine, refuses to live in a world without PB. So, with the help of my hero, Clark, they build their own peanut-butter-making machine in the secret basement of her home and begin the business of bootlegging. Also, they share a few pb kisses, etc, etc. :-D

And here's an excerpt! 

Morgan peeked over the edge of the top bunk. "Clark," she whispered, "are you awake?”

“Hmm-mm,” he mumbled sleepily.

She smiled and wiggled closer to the edge, trying to see his face through the shadows. “I just realized I forgot to show you my Nut House. We got a little sidetracked because someone couldn’t keep his hands to himself.”

“Isn’t this whole place a Nut House?”

Reaching behind her, she snagged her Cabbage Patch doll and threw it at what she assumed was his head.

So I won't say much here, except that if being a grown woman and loving bunk beds is wrong, I don't wanna be right! Have a wonderful day and week ahead! :)
