Weekend Writing Warriors #30!

Goooood Sunday morning, my friends! Today I'll be driving one of my best friends and fellow author, +Margaret Ethridge, to the airport. She came to Canada to visit me and another friend of ours for a few days, and even though I'm typing this before she arrives, I already know we're gonna have the time of our lives. Rhyme! I also know how hard it'll be to say goodbye. I'm sure it'll be hard for her to leave the land of maple syrup, butter tarts, and Clodhoppers too, but she'll be back. Her supply will run out eventually. ;) 

Now, to keep you folks entertained while I'm away, I'm sharing another excerpt from Crossing the Line!

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 here's an excerpt:  

Clearly the guy had super x-ray vision. Shit, shit, shitty, shit. How in the hell was she going to explain the trunk full of sex toys and boxes of erotic romance books? “Uh, okay.” She pressed the trunk release button and cringed as he walked to the rear of her vehicle.
He lifted the latch and her stomach lurched. She bashed her head against the steering wheel to the sound of him sifting through the unfit-for-children contents of her trunk.
He returned to her open window and lowered his voice to a dangerous level. “You wanna change your answer, Miss Kelly?”



Thanks, as always, for stopping by! Be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors and have a fabulous day! :)

  6. Hey, she didn't lie! It is 'stuff.'

    Besides, the conference probably brings in some money--it's not illegal. Embarrassing, but not illegal.
