Happy New Year!

2016 ended with a kick to the gut: All Romance ebooks closed down. It was a very dramatic departure for authors and publishers. For me, it meant my selling strategy for 2017 disintegrating. I had purchased a year’s subscription of advertisements and had big plans.

I’m still in the process of rebuilding my plan, but as you can see part of it is a new blog look!

Overall, though, 2016 was a good year. I hope yours was too. I’m looking forward to bringing you more hot heroes, nifty nails and classy coffee in 2017 here at:

The Beautician and the Billionaire Episode 8: The Party


With the contract behind them, Charisse is determined to show Conor how much she cares about him. But her constant and mysterious fatigue threatens to keep her away from the party he’s been guilted into giving for his dead wife’s sister. After fainting just before the party, Charisse makes her way downstairs only to be accosted by someone from her past who she never wanted to see again.


Charisse rested her hand on his cheek, admiring the straight nose and defined jaw line. She still hadn’t returned his “I love you.” Part of her wished she could wake him up and tell him now, while the other part still wanted to wait. It was too soon after the contract, too soon after churning up the past with Josh and too close to the party for Becca. She wanted to give her emotions for him time to grow and bloom. At least he hadn’t brought up her hesitation.

Keeping her hand on his cheek, she slid closer to him and brushed her lips against his.

“Mmmm,” he said without waking up.

She wished she hadn’t been so tired when they arrived. She’d wanted to end the day by making love to him, but she’d crashed out immediately after changing into a knit cami and shorts set she’d found in her suitcase.

Lifting her head slightly off the bed, she saw that it was four in the morning. He probably wouldn’t want to be woken up right now. Besides, she’d never initiated a seduction. Her attempt would most likely be laughable. Still, her core craved physical intimacy in a way she’d never experienced before. She couldn’t tell him she loved him, but she wanted him to know she desired him and cared for him more than any other man.

She pressed her lips against his, gently but harder than a moment ago.

“Mmmm,” he said again. “That’s the second time you’ve kissed me. Do it again, and I’ll think you want to make love.”

Masked Hearts Free!

canstockphoto3889287Last week several new people followed me on Facebook and Goodreads! To celebrate, I’m giving away Masked Hearts at Smashwords! Use coupon code  BN47G.

Masked Hearts is an erotic romance between a single dad and his son’s kindergarten teacher. The romance begins at the Holiday Cafe where the two meet over their favorite drink: Toil and Trouble with extra cinnamon.

Join them as they tumble through passion and problems and seek out their Happily ever After.

9 | Coffee Break

Sienna jerked around at the squealing tires and saw a black Corvette turning into the Holiday Cafe parking lot. When she recognized Mark as the driver, she wanted to jump into her own car to get away. But she just stared instead. She didn’t want to go over to Carol’s house and eat lunch with her and Glen. Already her heart ached over how many times she and Glen had done that while they were engaged.

Mark pulled his car into a spot right in front of her. The cafe was fairly empty still—Chloe wasn’t even at work yet. Maybe she had Sunday off. Sienna clutched her Toil and Trouble to her chest as Mark hopped out of his car. “Hey,” he said, “I thought you sang in the choir.”

She wanted to laugh at herself for thinking he’d say something like, “That was a great fuck last night.” Of course he’d be more civil than that. And he’d better not mention last night at all. And if he did, he’d better say it was great.

She said, “We sing at the earlier service. The service going on now is contemporary, with a rock band and everything.”

He seemed to be suppressing a laugh. “Naturally, you go to the traditional service.”

She knew it was a reference to how he saw her as a paradox, but she chose to ignore it. It verged on talking about last night. “Did you come by for a Sunday morning coffee?”

“No. I had to go have a fight with my ex-wife. I was on my way home when I saw you pacing here. Is there a reason you’re outside? It’s pretty cold this morning.”

“It seems to be a day for exes. I’m supposed to go have lunch with mine and his mom.”

“That sounds awful. Why don’t you join me inside?”

Sienna held her breath. It shouldn’t be so strange since they’d talked in the cafe for a couple hours yesterday, but that was before they’d screwed like two strangers at a rave. And before he’d given her a rose and a card. “Just for a little bit.”
