Goodbye 2017

Hi everyone,

First, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for me in the Evernight Publishing’s Readers choice awards.

I won,  Favorite Evernight author, Book of the year (Broken Bastard, co-written with Stacey Espino), Best BBW/ Rubenesque with The Nanny and the Playboy, and Dark romance with the Lawless Anthology.

2017 winner

I have talked a great deal about 2017 on Facebook, and how I’ve struggled a great deal this year with self-doubt and insecurity, and I made a vow to cut out all negativity, so I’m not going to dwell on that here. I want to say a big thank you to all of my readers for an amazing year.

So, what does 2018 have in store? It has a lot actually lol. I’m going for positivity, which means all this year it will be brand new releases. I’ve shelved all of my old books where the rights have been reverted back to me, and that is how it’s going to stay for some time. I feel too much time was spent on old releases this past year, and that’s not going to happen again.

What to expect? More Skulls. I want to write Tabitha and Simon’s story, and so my main focus will be that series. I will be working on many more books as I do need a break in between series books just to help me focus more.

More MC, more sexy alphas, more older heroes, and strong heroines, sexy neighbors, lawless men, deadly men, and pretty much whatever takes my fancy. I love to write, so just expect the unexpected lol. I will have my curvy women because that is totally my thing ;-). If you follow me on Facebook, expect more food pictures as well as I intend to be more adventurous in the kitchen. Would you like to see any of my food pictures here?

Wishing you all an amazing 2018, and I hope you’ll join me in the coming year.

Here is the first book of 2018, releasing January 9th.

Dirty-Mechanic-evernightpublishing-DEC2017-ADirty Mechanic (Hard and Ready)

Tyler Hard has wanted Eliza for a long time. But taking over his father’s business, building his home, and most of all not knowing what she wanted, meant he never acted on his feelings for her. When she accidentally leaves her diary after dropping her car off to be repaired, he has no intention of reading it—but the temptation is too much, and now at last he has the key to her desires.

Eliza has always had a crush on the town mechanic. He’d been the star guy in high school, and featured in all of her fantasies. She was the frumpy librarian. There was no way any guy would ever fall for her…

The moment Tyler touches her, Eliza can’t deny the attraction that sizzles between them. After years of yearning for him, he’s in her bed, and showing her all kinds of dirty things that she has only imagined. Each day she falls in love with him a little more.

But what will happen when she discovers the diary that he’s been reading? Can she trust him again? Was their romance ever real?

Love you all.

New Release: Bought Bride (Curvy Women Wanted)

Bought-Bride-evernightpublishing-NOV2017

Product Description

Curvy Women Wanted, 9

Rafe Shawl needs a wife. In order to inherit his father’s company, he has to be married, and the moment he bumps into Ellis Johnson, spilling coffee down her, he knows she’s the perfect woman for the job. 

Covered in coffee, Ellis knows there’s no way she’s going to get the job that she’d been about to be interviewed for—but the guy who’d just done the damage is offering to pay her a million dollars just to have coffee with him. She can’t refuse, especially when she realizes his offer is legit—one coffee and then becoming his wife. 

Ellis sees no other alternative, so she agrees to be his wife, and help him win back his father’s company. Five years, that’s all she has to do. Five years, pretending to be in love with him.

But five years will never be enough when she’s really fallen in love with him. 

But what will happen when she finds out that he lied to her? Not only does she have to give him five years, but he also needs an heir…

Excerpt:

“You okay over there?” she asked, placing her card on top of the pile.

“I’m fine.”

“You’re thinking a lot.”

“I’m just curious.”

“About what?” she asked, taking a sip of her water. Her tongue peeked out, and he watched her lick up the drop, making him ache.

“Did you have a boyfriend waiting for you back home?” He’d been so focused on getting what he wanted that he’d not even given her wants or desires a thought.

She laughed. “No, of course not. Do you think I’d marry another guy while I had someone waiting for me back home?”

“Have you dated anyone?” he asked.

“What is all this about?”

“I guess I’m just trying to figure you out.”

“Let’s see, the last guy I dated told me that he couldn’t stand to touch me anymore because my curves were a turn-off. I’ve had two serious boyfriends, but they’ve lasted about six months each.” She shrugged. “When I met you, I’d been in a rough patch.”

“It was kind of lucky for you to find me.”

“If I recall, you were lucky to find me. I’ve even got the clothes to prove it.”

“Did the dry cleaners ever get the coffee stain out of the shirt?”

“Nope. There’s still a brown stain. Kind of scares me where you bought your coffee from. It sticks a little too well.”

He chuckled as they finished their cards. Picking them up, he shuffled again and began to deal them out.

“I need some more water.” She got up, and her scent filled every one of his senses.

Unable to resist, he got to his feet and made his way toward the kitchen. Ellis was adding ice to her glass when he entered. She looked up at him and smiled, and it was that one simple action that spurred him forward.

She took a step back as he advanced into the room until her ass hit the kitchen counter. Reaching out, he stroked her cheek, tilting her head back.

“What’s going on?” she asked.

Ellis didn’t look frightened, and he didn’t want her to be.

“I just need to know,” he said.

“What?”

Running his thumb across her lip, he watched her tongue peek out as if it couldn’t resist either, and had a little taste of him. The action made his cock harden even more.

Without saying another word, he slammed his lips down on hers, holding her close, not wanting to let go. She released a little whimper, but threw her arms around his neck, not pushing him away.

With his free hand, he gripped her hip and pressed his cock against her stomach. He ached all over for the need to be inside her, and only her.

New Release: Her Beast

herbeast

Product Description

He’s never been a good man…

Hope Miller has been through a lot. After being trapped in a basement, witnessing her mother’s murder by her father, then being shot, too, before her father killed himself, she’s not the most normal girl. But she has a plan—she’ll graduate high school, move out of town, and leave the memories behind. Part of this plan means tutoring other students, which brings her to the Carsons’ home.

Beast Carson has tortured, maimed, and killed, all in the name of business. But seeing the curvy woman in his library, he’s instantly intrigued. She’s his nephew’s tutor, and way too young for him. Determined to give Hope a new life, Beast promises her a future that she can’t say no to. There’s no denying they want each other, and when Hope asks him to teach her, he can’t refuse.

Lessons soon turn into something more, and Hope knows she can’t walk away from this man, even though her plans say otherwise. But Beast holds a secret that could tear Hope away from him. When she learns the truth will she stay? He’s her Beast, and he’ll fight to keep what’s his.

Be Warned: spanking


Excerpt:

They were alone, in his library, and she held a book that suddenly felt like fire within her grasp.

“I…”

“It’s okay to be curious. What do you like?” he asked.

She stared down at the book, and he moved her so that her back was to him. She wasn’t able to see his face, which unnerved her a little.

“You like seeing a man take his cock into his hand.”

“It’s a beautiful drawing,” she said.

“This is more than a drawing, Hope. It’s a temptation. Don’t you see that?” He reached out as she held both hardback covers, and he turned the page. It was hard for her to not gasp. That same cock was seen running through the lips of a woman’s pussy. “Our bodies are made for fucking. These are just pages, giving a glimpse of the real thing.”

She closed the book up, not even wanting to deal with that temptation, and slid it back into its spot. Her emotions were all over the place because all she could think about was a cock sliding inside a woman’s pussy as perfectly as that book did in that space.

When she turned around again, Beast was close. He placed one hand on the books beside her head along with the other one, staring down at her, trapping her against his hard body and the books. She didn’t mind at all.

In fact, there was nowhere else she’d rather be.

“You’re a curious little thing.”

“What more is there to be?” she asked, tilting her head back, staring at him. She couldn’t look away, nor did she want to. With how close he was, she wondered if he was going to kiss her. His body was so close to hers, and she didn’t want him to back away. She craved his touch.

They were the only two people in the world as far as she was concerned. Anything could happen.

Her gaze went to his lips, and she bit her own. What would it feel like to have his mouth on hers, to take what he wanted without any thought from her?

No one had ever kissed her before, and she’d never wanted anyone’s kiss. Slowly, she placed her hands on his chest.

He was rock-solid, and she’d seen the gym that he kept near the pool house at the bottom of the garden. She had yet to see him work out in it, but that didn’t matter.

“You’re playing with fire, Hope.”

“I don’t care.” She didn’t have the first clue what she was doing, only that she couldn’t stop herself as she stepped close, bringing her body to his, finally feeling him against her.

One of his hands fisted inside her hair, tugging on the length, making her gasp as he pulled her head back.

New To Me Author

Hi everyone,

Now, you all know how I rave about Jamie Begley. I totally love her books, and she is just perfection lol.

Well, now I can’t resist sharing another author that I just adore. I came across her books in November that a reader shared with me. I think I asked something online about hard books or books that took you to the limit. Anyway, I love this series, and I am not ashamed to admit that I am begging for more books from Mateo’s POV (Point of View).

Please read any warnings as some of the books will push you to your limit. Mateo is not the good guy, but you will fall under his spell.

Sam Mariano

Product Description

Wynter Griffin has finally found her independence after years of being controlled by her parents. The only problem with her newfound peace? Her partying, rock music listening neighbor. She’s at the end of her patience, and demands that he packs up the noise, or she’s calling the police. 

Zane Webster likes his neighbor. Her blonde hair, blue eyes, and sweetness remind him of a princess. All she has to do was ask, and he’s more than willing to give her what she wants. 

Guilt eats away at Wynter, and it’s not long before she makes friends with the bad boy. After getting drunk one night, she lets it slip that she’s a virgin, and in desperate need of shedding that title. Zane agrees to help, providing they do it at his pace. With Zane, she can finally live her life to the fullest. He even teaches her how to fall in love. 

But what will happen when her parents demand she grow up, and do as she’s told? What will Wynter choose? Can two people so different find happiness together?

Be Warned: anal sex, public exhibition


Excerpt:

His dick was more than happy with the idea of helping her. He wanted to get her naked, spread those pretty thighs, and be the first and only man to taste her creamy pussy. She would be so wet by the time he got his hands on her.

Not right now.

He needed to keep his head in the game; the one he actually used to think with.

“I need to think about this,” he said.

“Okay.”

“You know what, I’ve thought about this.” He stepped up close to her, intent on kissing those sexy as fuck lips only to stop. “I want to kiss you right now.”

She nodded. “I’d like to kiss you, too.”

“I don’t want you to say things you don’t mean, or what you think I expect you to say.”

“I’d never do that.”

He pressed a finger against her lips. “I also don’t want you to keep playing nodding heads as we’re kissing.”

“Nodding heads?” she asked, frowning.

He moved his head from side to side in the way he meant, and she covered her mouth laughing.

“I’ve never seen that before.”

“It happens. Just close your eyes, no tongue, okay.”

She held her hands up. “Fine.”

He waited as she stood, closed her eyes, and puckered her lips.

“Don’t pucker.”

“I feel like I’m taking a test or something.”

“Consider it a test.” She stopped puckering, and he took a step toward her. He touched her cheek, and when she opened her eyes, he told her to close them.

She did as he asked, and he tilted her head back. Her skin was flawless, smooth, and he stroked his finger over her cheek, moving around her ear, and back down to her chin. Her lips parted a little, and he slid his other hand up from her hand, cupping her face.

Moistening his own lips, he took possession of hers, and listened as she sighed his name just before he did.

The moment he kissed her, he felt like his world had been turned upside down and inside out. He lost all focus apart from her.

His need for her was so great, greater than anything he’d ever experienced before in his life. He wanted her, craved her, felt consumed by his need that rivaled his love of music.

Sinking his fingers into her hair, he deepened the kiss, and his cock thickened. Moving her back, he pressed her up against the wall, relishing her hands on his body, and he held her close.

He didn’t want the kiss to ever end, but a knock on her front door halted it.

Pulling away, he stared into her eyes. Her cheeks were flushed, and there was no way he could ever let another man taste her sweetness.

“I’ll teach you everything you need to know, Princess.”
