Bad Boys of Romance

In my newest release, Her Wish His Command (Book 3), the heroine Anna longs for her co-worker Jonah. When she finally gets her shot, she’s afraid he can’t be the commanding man she needs.

*****

wish_command_200x300Her Wish, His Command Blurb

Doctor Anna Foster may just get what she wants: sexy fellow researcher Jonah Granger. She’s been in love with him for years, but Jonah has always been more interested in work at his family’s business, Granger Pharma, than romance. Now that they’ve admitted their attraction, Anna may even be able to tell him what she really wants: to submit to him.

But Granger Pharma faces a hostile takeover. Sensitive data and samples are missing from Anna and Jonah’s lab; it may be corporate espionage. Everyone is under suspicion and, and they’re even beginning to question each other. Anna must discover the truth if she’s going to save both her job and her relationship with the man she dreams of serving.

Her Wish, His Command Excerpt

Jonah sipped from his cup. “This coffee is better than usual. What did you do?”

“I washed out the pot and filter?” Anna laughed and threw her braid back over her shoulder. Wasn’t playing with hair supposed to be a flirty thing to do? She glanced into Jonah’s eyes and saw his pupils dilate ever so slightly.

Jonah placed his cup on the counter. “I usually just dump the old coffee.”

Anna reached to top him off, making sure she grazed him again. She turned and put the coffee pot back in its place. Her hip bumped him.

“Anna?” he asked in a deep, questioning tone.

“Yes?” She paused. “Jonah?” She drew his name out on her tongue.

His eyes locked with hers. “What’s this about?”

Anna broke eye contact as his scrutiny became too intense. “What’s what about?”

“This.” He gestured toward her. “Is this about yesterday?”

Anna wasn’t sure where to go with her plan. “Yesterday?” She feared her manner gave the impression of stupid instead of coy.

“Yes, yesterday. We had a moment, for lack of a better term. Is this some game?”

Anna straightened. “Game? What is that supposed to mean?” Her voice lost its teasing edge.

“It means that either you are trying to needle me or maybe … maybe you want something?”

Anna frowned. “Those are the only two explanations?”

Jonah considered for an instant. “Anna, you’re not interested in me, are you?”

Anna thumped her mug on the counter. “Of course not.” Color rose in her face.

“Anna, about yesterday. I didn’t mean to be unprofessional.” His apologetic manner unnerved her.

“You were not unprofessional,” Anna bit out. What a disaster. Was he going to say something kind? Anna didn’t think she could bear the embarrassment.

Jonah took her hand lightly in his. Her hand trembled, and Anna was sure he felt it. “Are you afraid?” He looked into her eyes. “Or aroused?”

Anna swayed as his calloused thumb stroked her palm. The lab seemed to shrink, the walls gathering close around them.

He tugged on her hand, bringing to his lips. He nipped her fingertip.

Anna struggled to remain impassive as her blood surged. She sensed she hadn’t fooled Jonah with her imperfect façade of calm.

A predatory masculine smile crossed his face. “I see.” He sucked her fingertip into his mouth.

Resolutions for 2013

We all know about New Year’s resolutiions. We start off with genuine intentions to lose a little weight, go to the gym or clear out our clutter. By February, we are usually left with nothing but our guilt.

This year, I want to try to make a resolution we can all get behind – reading more and writing more. I have no trouble with reading more. I enjoy it and it isn’t a hardship. Writing more I could use a little help with. Maybe I can ask you guys for a little support. Check in with me on the blog, Twitter, Facebook or maybe drop me an email. Ask me how my word counts are coming. Sometimes something simple really jump starts the motivation. Thank you in advance!

Now for you – what is your resolution for the New Year? Feel free to steal mine!

I’m not up for the shopping crush this year, so I have some suggestions for making your day a happy one without shopping.

1.  Don’t Go Shopping.  This is self-explanatory. Unless you want your sexy time to consist of rubbing up against strangers while standing in long lines for items that are probably out of stock, consider alternatives.

2.  Load Up On Sexy Reads.  This is a kind of shopping I can get into! Many promos are going on. Check out titles on Amazon and AllRomance Books in particular. You might get some inspiring ideas for #4 below. (If I may be so bold, consider my new release His Need, Her Desire – see blurb below).

3.  Eat Yummy Thanksgiving Leftovers.  After all the hard work that goes into the preparation of the Thanksgiving Feast, one of the best benefits is getting to eat it all over again without the work.

4.  Spend Quality Time with Your Main Squeeze.  Many people are off work today. Now is a great time to catch up on a little sleep and a little reading (see #2 above). After you are inspired, take your significant other behind closed doors for some “special” quality time.

5.  Spend Time with Family. Today is a great day for family. Whether you want to watch football, watch movies or play video games, there are many fun activities for all ages to enjoy. If it isn’t too cold out, consider a physical activity like touch football on the lawn. Nothing encourages togetherness like . . . well – togetherness!

What do you like to do on Black Friday?

Stay tuned below for an excerpt from my newest release – His Need, Her Desire.

Who Are These Alpha Males?

This blog hop comes at a perfect time for me. I just released a new erotic romance entitled His Need, Her Desire. This gives me the opportunity to introduce you to my hero, Marcus, who is the consummate alpha male. Marcus Granger likes to take charge, not only in the boardroom but in the bedroom as well.

He’s met his match in Tabitha Quinn. She’s feisty, funny and more than a little intrigued by Marcus’s dominant nature.

So what makes Marcus an alpha male? Is it his self-confidence? That certainly helps. Is it his inner strength? That’s a good quality. But what delineates the line between a dominant alpha male and an overbearing, obnoxious oaf?

I believe it is the tempering of the personality. Marcus is not only attracted to Tabitha, he cares for her. He’s considerate and thoughtful in his words and actions toward her. His intent is not to use her, but rather to bring them both pleasure and increase their intimacy. Who could argue with that?

What is a characteristic that you find attractive in an alpha male?

His Need, Her Desire

Blurb

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.

Excerpt

Tabitha’s smile grew wide. She held out her hand. “Really, I can’t thank you enough for your help.”

He held her hand in a firm grasp a shade longer than necessary, but Tabitha didn’t mind. She enjoyed looking at him. Though he had probably shaved that morning, an attractive shadow highlighted his chin and strong jawline.

“I’m glad I was in the right place.”

Tabitha released his hand. “So, where’s your sister?”

“My sister? How did you know?”

Tabitha bit her lip. “I’m sorry to say that I eavesdropped a bit. I was sitting near you at dinner last evening.”

“Eavesdropping? That seems extremely naughty.”

Tabitha was caught off guard by the tone of his voice. He was teasing, and yet, there was a thread of authority running through his words. Tabitha tried to suppress a shiver.”Well, sometimes I just can’t help myself.”

Marcus appeared disarmed by her honesty. “Are you traveling with anyone?”

Tabitha gave him a playful look. “Why do you ask?”

Marcus smiled. “Because I’m interested in knowing the answer, of course.”

“Well, if you’re thinking about ditching my body at sea, I’ve got six family members waiting for me in my hotel room upstairs. If you’re thinking about asking me to dinner, there is no reason why you shouldn’t.” Tabitha amazed herself. Where is this coming from? This man brought something out in her. She’d bet those broad shoulders and sexy smile had enticed many a woman.

He laughed. “You have nothing to worry about. I never use force, unless of course, it is desired.”

“Oh?” The truth burst into her mind. It suddenly became clear that he was fishing around a bit. There had been several hints here and there, but it seemed like he might be looking for a certain sort of woman. No, he couldn’t be. I’m imagining things.

“It’s true. I would be pleased if you joined me for dinner this evening.”

Tabitha did a mental fist pump in her mind. Woohoo! Dinner with Gorgeous Guy. “What did you have in mind?”

“Would you be averse to allowing me to surprise you?”

Tabitha hesitated then plunged ahead. “Not at all. It’s clear you have excellent taste.”

Marcus raised an eyebrow. “What makes you say that?”

“Well, we both dined at the same restaurant last night, and I thought it was terrific.”

“Ah, well, my meal was less than pleasant unfortunately.” His tone indicated the subject was off-limits.

“Perhaps it was the company and not the food?”

Marcus laughed. “You are undoubtedly right and surprisingly honest.”

“My mother would say that my tongue is quicker than my brain.”

The corners of Marcus’s mouth lifted. “I’ve always been a fan of quick tongues.”
