In the spirit of the hop, I have a small excerpt from His Desire, Her Surrender. It’s a scene in a pool … just before the characters get wet and wild!

*****

Tabitha floated on her back a moment and then swam to the deep end. She treaded water, creating ripples across the surface. Her eyes watched Marcus and her heart squeezed as she tucked away the image of him highlighted by the moon.

Marcus dove beneath the surface and Tabitha lost sight of him. She turned, trying to catch a glimpse, when something grabbed her foot, pulling her under. She bobbed back to the surface, laughing. “Marcus! I’ll have you know that I’m a very good swimmer, despite what happened in Hawaii.”

Marcus swam in behind her, encircling her with his arms. “But if you hadn’t had some trouble with that rip current, we might not have met.”

Tabitha rested her head back against his shoulder. “True, a rip current is trouble for the best of swimmers. However, we would have met anyway, somehow. I had my eye on you.”

Marcus laughed. “What? You did?”

“Of course. Do you think you can just walk around looking so handsome and no one will notice?”

Marcus dunked her under the water.

Tabitha came up, sputtering and laughing. She plunged her arm into the water and splashed him.

His Desire, Her Surrender Blurb

Tabitha Quinn’s Hawaii vacation was anything but ordinary. Dominant billionaire Marcus Granger saved her life, swept her into his bed, and then left her heartbroken. Now she’s back in New York, mourning the man she’s sure she’ll never see again.

Marcus may have left handprints on her skin, but Tabitha’s left handprints on his heart: he tracks her down, and they resume the sizzling affair they began in the islands.

Tabitha belongs to Marcus body and soul in bed, but she worries she doesn’t belong in his high-stakes world. They’ve already dodged a murder attempt, and now Marcus is fighting off a competitor’s takeover. When the rival company obtains critical information, suspicion falls on Tabitha. She has to prove she’s innocent–and worthy to wear Marcus’s collar.

*****

His Desire, Her Surrender Excerpt

Tabitha couldn’t suppress a seductive smile. “I seem to have developed a rather sticky situation.”

Marcus’s expression revealed his growing desire. “So you have.”

Perhaps you’d be willing to offer assistance?” Tabitha enjoyed playing the teasing coquette.

“I do believe I’m willing.” Marcus rose from his seat and motioned for Tabitha to move toward him. He grasped her by the shoulder and leaned into her cleavage. His tongue traveled the sweet pattern of the chocolate. “You’re right. This is divine.”

Tabitha shivered. She knew he spoke about more than the chocolate.

Why Read an eBook?

I still buy real books. I do. I admit it. However, I do mostly buy eBooks now. I have a Kindle…but honestly, I read mostly on my phone. There are so many reasons I’ve made the switch.

For one, my bookcases are full to overflowing. As I sit here in this room typing, there are four large bookcases stuffed with books. That is just in this room. There are bookcases in the other bedroom, the living room AND the dining room. There are books in plastic storage containers under my bed and in my closet. There are crates full of books all over my home. I have … a lot of books. I just don’t physically have the room for more.

However, there are other good reasons too. I have a number of cookbooks in electronic format. It is great to look up ingredients I need while I’m at the store. If I’m stuck in line at the post office, I just whip out the phone and do some reading. I have reference materials at my fingertips. Lastly, the selection online is much better. When I moved to this town, there were two real book stores. There was a Waldenbooks in the mall and a stand-alone Borders. Both are now gone. The only places to buy books are Walmart, Target and the grocery store. No offense, but the selection is quite limited.

Did I switch to eBooks to save trees? Not specifically. I do other things … cutting down on packaging, recycling (even though it isn’t required where I live), buying in bulk, bringing my own bags etc. However, I’m a happy ebook convert. If trees get saved, that’s a nice bonus.

This was the Marcus she remembered. This was the Marcus her heart refused to release. Tabitha unbuttoned her blouse and shrugged it off. Her back still toward him, she slid her skirt down over her hips, along with her panties. She stepped out, revealing stockings and garters instead of pantyhose. Her fingers reached for the garter.

Ten Naughty New Year’s Resolutions

Today we are going to try a new take on New Year Resolutions. Instead of losing weight or getting the car serviced, let’s come up with some that are easy to get behind.

So, what would be a naughty New Year resolution? Here are a few of my ideas.

1 – Eat a bite of chocolate every day – just a tiny bite won’t hurt 🙂

2 – Buy something slinky to wear for the significant other.

3 – Take one of those toys out of the drawer…and use it!

4 – Read a spicy book to your partner.

5 – Sleep in the buff.

6 – Send a suggestive text to your partner.

7 – Make a sex date (sounds unromantic but it works and gets your mind in the mood!)

8 – Leave a love post it where your partner will find it.

9 – Wake your partner up in the middle of the night for some action (this works better on the weekend….trust me).

10 – Ask your partner about sexual fantasies and act one out.

What is your contribution for a naughty New Year resolution?

My newest release!

His Need, Her Desire BlurbNeed_200x300

Tabitha Quinn didn’t come to Hawaii to be spanked. But when vacationing businessman Marcus Granger saves her from drowning, they begin an affair that moves from the beach to the bedroom and straight into an experience Tabitha’s never had before: dark-haired, blue-eyed Marcus is a dominant, and spanking is just the beginning. The sex is intense, the emotion even more so, until they both must decide if this is a holiday fling or the real thing.

His Need, Her Desire is available for preview and purchase on the following sites.

My First Halloween

The first Halloween that I remember was when I was about three. My mother had sewn the costume for me herself. It was a clown costume with elastic at the wrists and ankles made out of a crinkly fabric. She had put yarn pom-poms on the front and trim. In short, it was not only a great costume but also a labor of love. She made a matching yarn wig and painted up my face.

I remember the excitement of darting around in the dark. Both my mother and father escorted me. I had a huge bag with a giant yellow smiley face on the side. After running from house to house for what seemed like hours but was surely only a short time, we adjourned to a local fast food restaurant and had something to eat.

These memories of my first Halloween are burned into my mind. I can play the images over and over – the delightful costume, the heavy candy-filled bag, the hordes of children, the laughter, the excitement, staying up late, being outside at night, the brightness of the lights in the restaurant and being too keyed up to settle down to sleep once we got home. It’s a standout positive experience from my childhood.

What is your favorite Halloween memory?
