Weekly Recap ~ The Family Fun Continues

August 26th, 2016

Still having a great time with my family who is visiting. My sister and I got into a discussion on books. We both love to read and have similar tastes in books. Recently we both read the same book and had different thoughts on it. It lead to a very interesting discussion and got intense. Loved it. My nephew and sister’s hubby just watched us fascinated. LOL. We also had a discussion about a TV show we were watching and again it was fun. This one the other joined in and we had a blast dissecting the show. Love love this. I’m gonna miss them when they go home and my nephew goes back to college. :(

Oh well at least for now I have them a little longer. Off to have some fun with them.

That’s all for now. I’ll see you next week for my next weekly recap. :)

Page Notes ~ Risky Pleasures

August 24th, 2016

Today’s Page Notes is a little taste from Risky Pleasures (McKingley, Book #3) a book I co-authored with Aliyah Burke. Enjoy.

riskypleasures_smallTime passed and, close to closing, Archer was by his truck when a tingle ran up his spine. Lifting his head, he watched as a green jeep pulled in. The stiffening in his pants told him all he needed to know—it never failed, his body always knew when Delicia was around. He watched her climb out and look around.

Damn, she made that look good. She wore her uniform, a short sleeved light blue shirt and reflective EMS trousers. Her hair was back in a French braid and he longed to release it. Licking his lips, he shut his truck door and ambled over to where she stood talking to Mark, another one of his mechanics—a trainee actually, but he was a quick learner.

“Delicia,” he said upon his approach.

Her amazing brown eyes, reminding him of chocolate mousse, flicked up and widened slightly. “Mr Bennett,” she responded.

He disliked her calling him Mr Bennett but let it go for the moment. It was her thing, what she did when others were near. “Something I can help you with?”

Mark took the hint and walked away, leaving them alone. She looked just about everywhere else, except at him. And Archer realised she was nervous around him.

“Delicia?” he asked, stepping closer and inhaling the scent of tangerines that surrounded her.

“Hi…umm…I’m sorry to stop by without a…um…appointment, but I needed my oil changed, if possible.”

“Of course. I’ll do it for you right now.”

Her gaze flew up to meet his and he sent her what he hoped was a disarming smile. His cock stirred when her tongue sneaked out and wet her lips.

“If you’re sure. I don’t want to make anyone stay late.”

He held her stare. “It’s fine. Keys in the ignition?”

“Yes.”

“Go on in to the waiting room and have a seat. I’ll be done in no time.”

Reaching out, he turned her and gave her a gentle nudge towards the main door. The urge to draw her closer and kiss her swarmed him. He clenched his hands into fists and repressed the desire. Instead he just watched her walk towards the door and with one look back at him, she slipped inside.

Archer walked to her Jeep and paused right before getting behind the wheel. A throat clearing behind him pulled his attention from the vehicle. He turned to find Mark there.

“Want me to get this one, Risk?”

“No, it’s okay, Mark. I got it.”

A knowing smile curved up Mark’s lips and he narrowed his gaze in response. “Sure thing, boss. I’ll go clear a bay for you.” Hand outstretched, he offered the plastic seat cover then walked off.

“Do that,” he muttered, protecting the seat then getting behind the wheel.

Delicia had a six-speed Wrangler and he could tell she did a lot of outdoors stuff—her vehicle was decked out for it. There was nothing girly about this Jeep. And he liked it. Before long, he was draining the oil and checking air pressure on her tyres. Out of the corner of his eyes, he could see his employees watching him closely.

“What?” he asked Mark who continued to hover around.

“Nothing.”

With a grunt, Archer looked at Mark. A seventeen year old boy who had been working here since he was fourteen. The kid was a whiz with cars and loved nothing more than working on them, despite only having been actually working on cars for a year—before that he’d cleaned up around the shop.

“You sure seem to be interested in what I’m doing for a man who’s claiming nothing. You got nothing else to do?”

“Well, it’s just that…how well do you know Lis?”

Biting back his growl at the familiar way Mark spoke about Delicia, he swallowed. “What are you looking to know?”

“I…I…” A flush moved up the boy’s dark cheeks and he figured it out.

“She’s older than you, you know.” Archer poured in the oil.

“I know, but…”

“She’s got a man, too, Mark. I’m sorry.” He capped it and wiped his hands off on a rag from his pocket.

“She does?” He sighed. “Who?”

Waiting until the young man looked at him, Archer then said,
“Me.”

He stepped from the hood and slammed it shut. Going to the driver’s side, he got in and drove through and around to the front. Once in the waiting room, he walked up to where Delicia sat thumbing through a magazine and said, “You’re all set.”

Delicia looked up at the sound of Archer’s deep timbre. The moisture in her mouth vanished as she stared at him. This man is just too damn fine. With what she hoped was a normal smile, she pushed to her feet and stood before him.

“Wow. That was fast. Thank you. For taking me.” Okay, that was not supposed to be said. She squeezed her eyes shut and wished she were anywhere but where she was. “I mean, for taking care of my car.”

His gaze burnt hot when she met it again and there was this hint of knowing within the depths of his eyes. “No problem. Anytime, Delicia.”

On the Shelf ~ Historicals

August 20th, 2016

I’ve been in a historical mood so been reading books in that genre. Julie Garwood to be precise. Although I love all of Julie’s books (yeah I love the contemporary Buchanan) my fav’s are. These are in no particular order.

The Bride
The Wedding
Shadow Music

So I’ve been busily reading historicals.
What have you been reading?

Weekly Recap ~ Family

August 19th, 2016

I’ve been having a great time with my visiting family. We’ve been laughing, cooking and just making memories. It’s wonderful and I look forward to it every year. My big sister, nephew and her hubby are all smart asses and had weird sense of humor. No matter what they say I am the normal one. They are all liars. LOL.

Okay, okay I will admit it. I too have times of smart assness (not sure if that is even a word). We are having a blast.

And yes my sister is bugging me about my next book. :)

That’s all for now. I’ll see you next week for my next weekly recap. :)

Page Notes ~ Conquering Jazz

August 17th, 2016

Today’s Page Notes is a little taste from Conquering Jazz(Sultry Nights, Book 1). Enjoy.

mj_sn_conqueringjazz_small1She inhaled sharply. His eyes followed the movement of her agitated breathing. He looked at her, a fine sheen of sweat coating his face. Jasmine followed the trickle of sweat traveling down his face as it disappeared below his shirt. Her palms dampened as her breathing accelerated.

“I want you hot,” she said.

“How hot do you want it?” Reese growled.

“Steaming…a raging inferno.”

“I can do that. But are you sure you can handle it?” The arrogance was even more obvious in his tone.

Jasmine looked at him with a challenge in her eyes. “Don’t worry about me. Worry about yourself.” She looked deeply into his eyes. They were familiar, but she felt as if she was seeing him for the first time.

“You should worry, Jasmine. I’m going to burn you up.”

“I don’t want to lose you as my friend,” she said, trying to slow things down. “If we do this, I feel that I will.”

He muttered under his breath. “What?” she asked.

“Not ‘if’, but ‘when’, Jasmine. ‘When’ we do this,” he repeated.

“Okay. ‘When’ we do this, it’s only between us, in this room, together. I don’t want any misunderstandings. My brothers aren’t to know. No one is to know. It’s between you and me. And after this is done I don’t want to lose your friendship.”

Reese contemplated what she asked. He couldn’t believe, after the long wait, she was finally going to be his. He couldn’t tell her the truth; she wasn’t ready for it. He couldn’t think, with the scent of her arousal filling him. He wanted to devour her, and would agree to anything to have her.

Reese chose the safest answer his desire-fuddled brain could come up with. “You won’t lose me, Jasmine.”

She interrupted him. “I feel like I already am. Why aren’t you calling me Jazz?”

He let his hungry gaze roam, taking in her smooth mocha complexion, chocolate brown eyes, high sculptured cheeks, and luscious mouth, which was begging for him to taste it. Reese resisted reaching over and biting her lush lips.

His gaze lowered, then his mouth watered as he took in her bountiful breasts rising below her snug T-shirt. His eyes traced down her jean-clad, lush hips to the groove between her legs. Reese wet his dry lips, looking at her long legs, imagining how they would wrap around him as he drove deep within her hot, wet canal.

Finally, he raised his gaze to lock with hers. “Because I’m going to be deep inside you while you beg and scream my name for mercy. I see you as Jasmine, a sexy woman, not just Jazz, my friend. Our being friends won’t change. I’ll call you Jazz outside, but in here, every time we’re together, you’re Jasmine, the woman I want, the one whose nails I want to sink deep into my back as I take you every way and any way we can think of.”

“Every time? There will only be this once.”

“No. Once won’t be enough. Hell, even ten times may not be enough. I want you for as long as it takes for both of us to be satisfied. If you only want this one time, then forget it. We can try and pretend this didn’t happen. But if you’re ready for fulfillment of anything and everything you or I can imagine, then tell me yes.”

Stark silence followed. Watching the indecision on her face made a feeling of unease knot his stomach. He hoped she would give him a chance to show her how good it could be between them. He barely heard her whispered answer over the roaring in his ears.

“Yes.”

Weekly Recap ~ B-day and New World Fun

August 12th, 2016

Tomorrow is my b-day. And I’m looking forward to it. I also have family visiting (my big sister and her husband). My nephew (their son) who is in college has also been staying with me. He hasn’t seen his parents since Christmas. And when they did it was so beautiful. It’s going to be a great time with them.

Also I love bouncing ideas off my sister. She is an avid reader like me and offers great insights. Well…that and she likes my books so she asks me when the next one is coming out. LOL.

I have a new book I’m working on is in a new setting so building a new world. I love doing that and it’s so much fun as I get to know all aspects of what I am creating. :) It’s been great getting to know the characters and everything about the world.

That’s all for now. I’ll see you next week for my next weekly recap. :)
