Newsletters- 2014

October 2014

Fall is here and the holidays are just around the corner. Time is passing too quickly. But I do like to take a few minutes each day to appreciate Mother Nature and how she dresses Indiana in magnificent colors. The pink and purple sunrises are glorious and the crimson and amber leaves are beautiful. I hope Mother Nature has done as well for you.

On A Personal Note

This summer and fall we devoted to painting the inside of the house and yard work. What a project! Not only have I lost weight, I’ve also lost my mind. Even though I hired Studs youngest daughter to paint the entire house, including all closets and doors, we still had to clear out fourteen years of clutter. Michele did a fabulous job. Our house now looks like something out of House Beautiful.

On Writing

4 DAYS is my current project for Musa Publishing. This sexy read is set in Zermatt, Switzerland during ski season. Sheridan Whitaker, a sassy Chicago gal, is gob smacked by the handsome and virile Alessandro Knobel, a disgruntled but wealthy Italian banker masquerading as a ski bum. The story will release in February 2015.

Will the Biggest Poser win? Or will the lies just grow and grow until they sink the whole show? Only one thing is certain. Whatever happens, it’s gonna be an entertaining ride!

And a short excerpt:

He was so close she could smell the clean musk scent of his aftershave and feel the moist heat of his breath. His muscular thigh flexed against her leg as he leaned in to cut a bite of asparagus.

As he lifted it to her lips, his gaze fixed on her mouth. His tongue swept over his bottom lip as if anticipating her taste. Jillie’s body tightened with need and her mouth quivered in anticipation of kissing him.

She took the spear of green off the end of the fork, sliding her tongue over her lips to get every ounce of its flavor.

The asparagus was perfect. Slightly crisp and tart with balsamic vinegar.

Brandt watched her chew and licked his lips. “I love balsamic. Let me try.”

She expected him to cut himself another bite, but instead he leaned close and slid his tongue over her slightly parted lips.

“Mmm. Delicious. I need to try the steak too.”

He cut another sliver of meat and doused it liberally with the rich sauce. As he placed it on her tongue, she drew it in, curling her tongue slowly around it, before chewing.

Brandt lowered his head and took her bottom lip into his mouth, sucking gently. He moaned. “Incredible. The sauce is exquisite. What’s your secret ingredient?”

She closed the distance between them and nibbled on his full lower lip. “There’s a reason they call it a secret ingredient.”

He slid his hand up her bare arm, over her shoulder, and wrapped it lightly around her throat, tipping her chin so he could trail kisses along the place where her blood pulsed with growing excitement. “I bet I can get it out of you.” His voice had deepened and grown husky with lust.

The sound of it abraded her overcharged nerves, making her shiver. “Just as long as you know I’m holding out as long as I can.”

He sucked an earlobe into his mouth and gently bit down. “As you know, I love a challenge.”

May 2014

Hard to believe, but just maybe summer is on the way. The time is here to get the garden in order. This year requires a lot of maintenance to the patio and areas that butt up to the house. I see serious manual labor for Studs and me and lots of Aleve.

I hope your summer plans are more fun.

Contest

It’s time for another Newsletter Members Only Contest. We’re staying with easy because that’s what we all like. There will be 2 winners. The prize is a free download of Sisters in Jeopardy by Vonnie Hughes. She is well known for her Regency novels which is this issues prize. But Vonnie is now storming a path with critically acclaimed contemporary suspense novels. Be sure to look over her website.

Here’s the blurb:

A kidnapper makes a grave mistake and faces a revenge he never expected.

Annis’s new husband investigates crimes, and Caroline’s new husband is a capable ex-Army officer. When their ladies are kidnapped in an effort to suppress the evidence of pilfering and murder, Giles and Fort fight their way through all the lies and subterfuge to not only rescue them, but also to avenge them.

And a short excerpt:

Fort approached the person on the seat. “Mr. Young, we’ve been looking for you.”

If that was Mr. Young, why was he listing to one side like a ship at sea?

“Is he injured? Has John hurt him?” She hurried towards them.

“Stop!”

Fort’s peremptory order stopped her in her tracks. She watched as Fort examined Mr. Young’s head and neck. He lifted Mr. Young’s hand. It dropped laxly.

“He’s dead,” Fort said, turning towards Caroline. “Sweetheart, do you know your way out of the maze? I must stay here with the body. There’s been enough moving of evidence already.”

“How—?”

Fort gesticulated with a finger across his throat.

“Oh! I’ll fetch Giles. Sir William Harding will have to be notified too.” Caroline cast her husband an anxious look. “Please be careful, Giles, in case John comes back.”

“You be careful too, my love. Walk slowly and listen for footsteps on the other side of the hedge. And if you meet anyone—anyone at all, man or woman—scream. Scream loudly.”

Caroline nodded and plunged back along the gravel paths surrounded by greenery. To her great relief she met nobody, although she was so rattled by events that she took a wrong turning and had to retrace her steps. “Hurry,” she told herself. “Fort is alone there and John is on the loose.”

February 2014

Winter is here and looks to be staying for quite a while. Many years have passed since our area has been snowed and frozen like this. I sure hope we aren’t seeing a new trend in Northwest Indiana. My poor old bones can’t take it.

I am honored to announce that PHOTO Op! was named Best Contemporary Book for 2013 by Love Romances Café. LRC has 4500 voting members who decide the winners in a variety of categories. To win is the equivalent of an Oscar or Grammy.

This achievement did not happen on my own. A sincere thank you to my awesome editor Helen Hardt and my terrific publisher Musa Publishing.

PHOTO Op!

This is a short introduction to PHOTO Op!:

Never mix business with pleasure, unless pleasure is your business.

Photojournalist Emily Peters gives herself the perfect birthday gift – a weekend in Paris. Her excitement builds when she hits the scene of the exclusive S&G Club. Exposing the truth behind their private pleasure chambers and the elite who frequent them will be the diamond in her career crown. At least Em thinks so until she’s tied up in knots by the Devil himself.

British restaurateur Nicholas Caine visits Paris to check on his S&G Club investment and to sample its many benefits. Nick’s not on the hunt until he encounters a tiger that pretends to be a kitten. There’s no doubt she’ll satisfactorily flex her claws given the right incentive.

What starts as a prime photo opportunity evolves into a weekend of erotic fantasies as Nick awakens Emily’s dark passions.

Excerpts are available on my website as well as Musa Publishing.

Studs and I are counting the days until we head south to meet up with our friends Bonnie and Tom.

Contest

It’s time for another Newsletter Members Only Contest. We’re staying with easy because that’s what we all like. There will be 2 winners. The prize is a free download of Seducing Kate by Emilia Mancini. This novel is a Heat Level 1.

Here’s the blurb:

It took Kyle one look to realize he wanted to seduce his best friend’s mother. And one kiss to realize he didn’t have to.

It was lust at first sight for Kyle when he met his roommate Justin’s mother Kate. Kyle, a college transfer, was too far from home to visit on short school breaks, so Justin took him to Minneapolis where his mother was serving up a family meal for Thanksgiving.

One look left Kyle with a healthy obsession for Kate which grew with each visit. When he landed an internship in Minneapolis, he moved in with Kate for the summer, and got in touch with his voyeuristic side. It wasn’t until one late evening and a few too many glasses of wine that Kyle began to suspect his attraction wasn’t one-sided.

When he dared to push the issue, he found Kate more than willing to succumb to his seduction.

And a short excerpt:

I found Kate in the pool as I often did on Saturday mornings.

The sun was sparkling off the drops of water that had gathered on her skin as she floated on a raft. So many times over the last two months I had wanted to swim up to her and lick the wetness off her skin.

Today I finally did.

She jumped slightly, startled when I emerged from the water beside her, but then she smiled and ran her hand over my wet hair.

Careful not to tip her, I leaned forward and dragged my tongue along her stomach until I found her belly button. I teased it for a moment before leaning back.

She smiled at me. “I know where this is going.”

“I’ve had a long time to think of all the ways I want to fuck you. And I only have two weeks to get them all in.”

“I’m kind of kicking myself for not allowing this sooner.”

I traced her hard nipple through her bathing suit. “Me too.”

“Well, let’s not waste any more time. Shall we go in?”
