Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work.  It could be a work in progress or a completed piece.  It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.

Hi there! Oh my it’s been a month since I’ve been here. A very busy month. Between 2 releases, NaNo, and multiple new projects, I think I’m completely overwhelmed. The good news is I’ve signed 2 multi-book contracts and I’m waiting for another contract for an accepted ms. And now Christmas is around the corner and I have a party to plan for in just four short weeks. Yikes.  Okay. My last snippet was about Sliding into Home which came out in October. Today I’m sharing a snippet from my brand new release Hers to Own. It’s part of my Vault Series. This one has BDSM elements, but at the core is a love story about two people reunited at their high school reunion.  See the bottom of the post for the blurb.

Note: I’ve taken creative licensing with the punctuation here so I could give you the complete context.

 

Brienna squirmed.
“Stay still, Brienna.” He chuckled, a low, dangerous but oh-so-sexy rumble. “Or I’ll have to start all over.”
God, no, she couldn’t take it a second time, not tonight. Tonight she needed release—the single-minded pleasure was torture—it left her body humming with desire, aching for him to take her, to fuck her hard and fast like he’d promised, to put her out of her orgasmic misery.
This wasn’t the first time he’d teased her like this—the man showed no mercy. Almost every night for the past two weeks, while the breeze flowed through the open bedroom window, drifting over her body, doing nothing to cool the sweat coating her skin, he’d spent hours worshipping her, pushing her toward something she’d wanted from him for years.

He’ll teach her to love her body…one spanking at a time. 

Brienna Morgan has worked hard to look good. Ten years ago she stuck to the shadows, watching the popular kids, wishing she could be one of them. But when they weren’t calling her cruel names, nobody noticed the smart overweight girl with the glasses. 

So when she braves her high school reunion and runs into Kade McBride, the boy she loved from afar, the last thing she wants is for him to remember her. It’s bad enough she still sees that girl every time she looks in the mirror. But Kade does remember—and he makes it impossible for Brie to refuse to go out with him. She’s not convinced it’s a good idea, but she can’t pass up the opportunity to be part of the in crowd. 

Kade had no desire to go to his high school reunion. As far as he’s concerned, he’d rather forget those days. Especially the day he screwed up and left his best friend to pay the ultimate price. But when he sees the gorgeous woman enter the gym, he’s immediately drawn to her. Regardless of her claims that she’s not the girl he thinks he remembers, Kade realizes maybe he’s been given a second chance to right at least one wrong from his past. And he’s determined not to throw this opportunity away, even if he has to tie Brienna to a spanking bench to prove his point.

Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work.  It could be a work in progress or a completed piece.  It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.

Hi there! I’m still on my brief break from A Legacy of Lies, my paranormal romantic suspense.  You can read my last snippet for that WIP here.

I’m going to give you a few more peeks at my upcoming release. It’s the first in a series of six novellas. This one is called Sliding into Home.  Jack is a retired baseball player (taken out by an injury) and Devyn is the girl he left behind to pursue his passion. They’re reunited years later in Vegas.

I decided to skip ahead. Here, we are in her POV.  She’s arrived at the hotel to meet her date for the weekend (did I mention her best friends have set her up). She’s just realized her date is in the room, in the shower.

The water stopped, freezing her mid-stride. Panic swelled. She spun in all directions. Oh, God. Typically, she considered herself a strong woman, but at the moment, she felt so out of her element, and a strong sense of foreboding rolled over her. She needed a place to hide. Dive behind the sofa or behind the heavy curtains?
A door opened and steam rolled into the hallway.

Hi there! I’m still on my brief break from A Legacy of Lies, my paranormal romantic suspense.  You can read my last snippet for that WIP here.

Today I’m sharing another  a peek at my upcoming release. It’s the first in a series of six novellas. This one is called Sliding into Home.  He’s a retired baseball player (taken out by an injury) and she’d the girl he left behind to pursue his passion. They’re reunited years later in Vegas. This follows the opening I shared with you a couple of weeks ago. I had to do a tiny bit of creative editing to keep these sentences together for the purpose of this snippet.

 

Thank Christ most of his family had finally given up. Although, that last message from his mother—she’d insisted that he get his head out of his ass and start acting like an adult—still stung. 
Guilt wormed a hole through his pride; Elaine Walker didn’t deserve his attitude. That woman had created a home for him when no other had. If it wasn’t for Elaine and Grant taking him in when they had, he would probably be living on the streets, or in jail. 
Then two nights ago, after a coerced game of poker slash intervention, in which he’d lost five hundred dollars and a bet, his so-called friends had talked him into spending the weekend in Vegas with a blind date they’d arranged. Apparently those closest to him figured a good woman could pull him out of his funk. Then they had all laughed and wiped the table clean—and not of chips and pizza crumbs–too bad they hadn’t picked up their dirty dishes at the same time.

Hi there! I’m going to take a brief break from A Legacy of Lies, my paranormal romantic suspense.  You can read my last snippet for that WIP here.

Today I thought I’d share a peek at my upcoming release. It’s the first in a series of six novellas. This one is called Sliding into Home.  He’s a retired baseball player (taken out by an injury) and she’d the girl he left behind to pursue his passion. They’re reunited years later in Vegas. This is the opening.

 

“Fuck. I can’t believe I’m even considering going through with this,” Jack mumbled and sipped from his glass of Crown Royal, smothering a sigh. Christ, he needed to find new friends. His current ones derived too much joy in taking advantage of his soaked-in-alcohol, pissed–the-world state of mind.

Why the hell can’t people leave me alone? His friends, his agent, his teammates—every other goddamn day he deleted messages from his phone. Everyone wanted to either console him or provide career advice.

Jack ground his teeth together.

Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work.  It could be a work in progress or a completed piece.  It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.

I’ve continued with A Legacy of Lies, my paranormal romantic suspense – a wip.  Jacob (the hero), is trying to find his missing sister Julia, and her best friend Elissa (the heroine) is determined to help him. My last snippet for this WIP can be read here.

Last week, Tagg teased Jacob about his relationship with Elissa. I’ve jumped a head a tiny bit to put us back into Elissa’s POV. She’s in the diner.

 

Elissa hurried and dried her hands on the course paper towel before she pulled open the restroom door, eager to rejoin her two travel mates.
She located an empty booth near the front bay of windows and slid across the cracked red-vinyl bench seat, coming to a stop a few scant inches from the wall. A bell dinged over the outer door, the tiny sound echoing through the half-filled diner, and a few seconds later both Tagg and Jacob joined her.
The football-player sized man squeezed into the booth across from her and settled in the middle of the bench, while Jacob hesitated at the end of the table for a long moment, glaring at Tagg before finally grumbling beneath his breath and sliding in next to her.
Tagg chuckled. “Have you ordered yet, sweetheart?” A low growl came from beside her. Tagg laughed louder.
