********

comes from my current WIP

In a Cowboy's Arms

She stepped over one mostly naked man she didn't even want to explain how she knew to be Mason Donovan.  His long tanned arms and lily white legs tangled with her roommate Jenna, a lace bra wrapped around his head like a tiara. Lacey shook her head.  Really?  At least the other man was face down with his T shirt and boots still on, saving a little bit of his dignity.  She wasn't sure of his identity because she didn't make a habit of going around town asking every cowboy to pull down his jeans to see if he possessed the match to any tattoos, natural or otherwise on his ass.  Not that the guys wouldn't gladly drop trough.  She just wasn't that interested.

My Sexy Saturday #MSSWeek13


(sponsored by the fantastic My Sexy Saturday blog)


Are we here again? Saturday?  (sunday for me, sorry)  I swear this summer literally flew by.  The only reason I can tell it's lasted long enough is my kids are stir crazy wanting to go back to school.  I love them being home, don't get me wrong but I swear my concentration flew out the window on the very last day of school in June.

Well let's get right to it shall we?  Today i'm sharing a 7 paragraph snippet from a tentatively titled WIP.



*****
In a Cowboy's Arms



“What in the hell is going on out here!”

From somewhere behind him, Jordan heard an amazingly vocal and really pissed off female voice.  There’s another roommate?  He turned and instantly felt a stabbing pain right dead center into his chest.  She was a goddess.  A hot goddess.  And she looked furious.  From what she was wearing, he guessed all the commotion in the living room had awakened her, very possibly from the wrong side of the bed.

He felt compelled to apologize and introduce himself before he bowed out completely. “Hey there” he spoke carefully, extending his hand. “My name is Jo--.”

“I don’t give two shits who you are buddy.  Seriously, I have no clue why I’m even surprised my roommates are having an orgy at one or two in the morning or whatever the hell time it is, while I’m trying to sleep.  Damn it.  I have to be up in a few hours to feed cows.”

Orgy?  What the hell gave her that idea?  He was still fully clothed. And cows?  What did she do for a living?  “Who are you?” Jordon pressed, just in case he was wrong about the third roommate thing.

“Not that it matters but I’m the only sane roommate here.”  Either she had no idea or just didn’t care that her night shirt was stuck in the waist band of her thong but when she turned to storm back down the hall where she’d come from, she’d presented him with the cutest heart shaped birthmark on the sweetest shapely ass he’d ever seen. 


Even with a door slamming in her wake, none of the other four people in the room even seemed to notice she had appeared at all.  Shaking his head, he locked the handle of the door and pulled it shut as he left.  The scene he’d just witnessed almost made him afraid to come back tomorrow or later today rather, for fear he might have to face her again.  Unless of course she was dressed in a thong again.

My Sexy Saturday #MSSWeek12


Welcome to My Sexy Saturday Week 12 #MSSWeek12

It's a pleasure and so much fun to join in with the other great authors and present snippets of my work in progress.

Today I'm sharing my 7 from a soon-to-be released 
work from The Wild Rose Press

My 7 paragraphs from Second Nature, 
book 1 in The Second Series...
(please ignore any grammar/spelling snafu's as we are  in edits, sorry no cover yet :))


Her words were cut off by his hard and intense lips, drowning out any other reasonable thought she had except how good he tasted as he devoured her. Heaven help her, this wasn't just any kiss...more like a homecoming. She often lay awake at night, trying to remember what his kisses felt like against her lips and skin.

The kiss doesn't mean anything. It can’t. Too much water under the bridge, and I’m not sure if I can ever forgive him.

Dana struggled with her thoughts until Nick wound his fingers into her hair, tilting back her head while his tongue pressed against her slightly parted lips, demanding entrance.

Live for the moment—just the moment!

Her lips parted without hesitation, allowing him to deepen the kiss. His tongue delved in search of hers, eliciting a moan from deep within her throat and encouraging him further.

 With his other hand against her lower back, he pressed her closer yet, her full breasts tight against his chest. He pushed his arousal to her stomach. She ran her hands frantically over his shoulders, gripping his biceps as his fingers moved over her hips and down the silky satin covering her thighs.

Nick left her whimpering mouth to trail hungry kisses down the length of her neck and over her bare shoulder. He fidgeted with the hem of her dress, as if hesitating. Did he want her to stop him? She had no intention of stopping him. She couldn't. She wanted him so bad. When she didn't cease his wandering hands, he continued. His hands slipped under the hem of the black satin and pushed her dress up her hips to grasp her firm, round bottom, bare except for a thin strip of lace.

“Damn, woman! A thong?”

I'm sharing a blurb and excerpt from my Decadent title,
Take Me Home, Cowboy
and I'll be giving away to one lucky commenter,
winner's choice of any one title in the
Decadent Publishing's Western Escape line found here


 
Blurb:

Ally Kincaid returns to Freewill, Wyoming, to see her father after a two year absence. Anticipating a quiet family reunion, she finds herself butting heads with her father’s foreman instead. The man’s arrogance and sexy drawl push all her buttons, making her wonder what he’s hiding beneath his cowboy swagger.

Matt Gentry walked away from the past and shies from the future. No ties means no one gets hurt…until the boss’s daughter, a hot, green-eyed blonde, tempts him to break his own rules.

When tragedy strikes, will building tension and pride destroy their growing attraction or show them the way home?




Excerpt:

Ally’s attention immediately flew to the newcomer in the room. How could she not? He was gorgeous. Not that she actually wanted to notice.  Ha! Who was she kidding? His hair was still damp where it curled slightly at the neckline of his T-shirt. The short sleeve tee was snug fitting and showed off his pectorals and tanned arm muscles. He grabbed his plate, made his way around the table, and leaned in close. Oh, his scent hit her—clean soap and pure male. Good God.

 "Like what you see, princess?" he murmured.

Startled out of her trance, she stumbled for a quick, snide comment. "You wish, cowboy," she whispered back, and then turned back to her daddy, who was already halfway finished with his meal.

She was not about to let anyone see how rattled the foreman’s presence actually made her. She only hoped she hadn't already given her odd interest in him away. Ignore him and he won't be any the wiser.  She would be sure to make this trip a short one, or she would be in trouble.
Jesse cleaned his plate and abruptly stood, placed his dishes in the sink, and made to leave the room.

"Looks like you kids get to do the dishes. I’m off to my study." Her dad kissed the top of her head and slapped his foreman on the back, then chuckled as he disappeared through the door.

"That rat!" she said. "He shoveled through his dinner on purpose."

"No worries, princess. I do the dishes every night anyway. You can go do whatever it is you do before bed. I’ll take care of the clean up before I head out to check the horses."

"Oh no you don’t. I won’t let you go running to Daddy tomorrow whining because I didn’t do my share, so I’ll wash. And why are you calling me ‘princess’?"

"It seemed fitting. Would you rather me go back to ma'am?"

"No, I would rather you use my name, thank you."


He only shrugged.  He pushed his place setting aside, rose, and reached for the dessert and plates on the counter.  "Since we'll be working together, how about some dessert before we get busy?"

My Sexy Saturday Birthday Giveaway #MSSWeek11


Hosted by the fantastic MY SEXY SATURDAY blog


Hi everybody, welcome to My Sexy Saturday.  Today is a special day for me as it's my birthday :)  Not that I like getting any older but hey, it's just a fact of life.  My kids enjoy celebrating so away we go !!!

Today I'm posting my sexy 7, coming from my WIP, Morgan's Mountain.  AND at the end i'm giving away a digital copy of my Decadent Publishing title, Take Me Home, Cowboy, a  digital copy of a Turquoise Morning Press short story anthology, Summer Shorts(my story is Surf's Up) and a goodie bag :)

My 7 paragraphs (or thereabouts)...



Muffled thumps coming from the living room sidetracked his contemplation. He jumped out of bed and slid on his jeans and boots then pulled on a t-shirt as he elbowed the bedroom door open.

“Hey, where you goin’?”  Morgan was dressed for a blizzard in her winter coat with her saddle bags thrown over her shoulder.  He moved quickly toward the kitchen to intercept her.

“Time for me to head out.  The snow stopped last night.”  She started to walk around Luke.

“Whoa there, what do you mean head out?  You’re just gonna leave me here?” To say he was shocked was an understatement.  Damn it, she was running again.

“Yep.  You’re a big boy right?  Or do I need to escort you down the mountain so you don’t fall off your horse again?”


“Oh there’s the smartass I know and love so well.  You aren’t going anywhere Morgan.  Not until we talk.”

“We don’t have anything left to say Luke.”  She patted him on the chest and tried to move around him.  He was smarter than that.  He refused to let her walk out of his life again.

“Oh…oh yes we do and we, meaning me and you aren't   leavin’ here til we do.”  Then Luke proceeded to place his big cowboy-weathered hand around her dainty little wrist, spinning her around to face him again.  He hadn’t really thought about what he was doing and didn’t expect that she would lose her balance, falling right into his arms.


“Now this is exactly what I was thinking…”  And she slapped him.

My Sexy Saturday #MSSWeek10




Welcome to week 10 of
My Sexy Saturday :)

Today my 7 sentences comes from

Take Me Home, Cowboy
(available now through
 Decadent Publishing)



     When she took a step away from him, he almost laughed. He had made her uncomfortable.

     “I think I’ve seen enough of the barn for tonight. It’s been a long day. Thanks for uh, well…thanks. I think I’ll be turning in now.”

     She spun, but her feet must have tangled, and she fell. Without thinking, he reached out, gripped her upper arms, and drew her up tight against him. He turned her until her hands rested on his shoulders, and her breasts pressed flush with his chest. Sliding his arms down, he trapped her in his embrace.
