Tyr went on and Garrick stopped and faced her. Indigo and the others were across the room by the same counter Bailey had been at when he’d come in.

“I am sorry for kicking you.” Bailey came closer, lowering her voice. “But you were not watching me as if you were up to no good. You were watching me like—”

“You were mine.” Garrick blew out a breath. “Yeah, I realized I was after you started to say it. Sorry I didn’t know I was doing that. I noticed you a few weeks ago when you and your friends drove up. Been noticing you since then.”

“Really?” Bailey studied him, her hazel gaze intent.

“So you’ve been watching me for weeks.”

“When you say it like that it sounds creepy.” Garrick shook his head.

“I’ve not been watching you, I just saw you when you came by and was wondering…” He stopped, not wanting to make more of a fool of himself than he already had. That was what giving into attraction got him—a sore head and being made to feel like an ass who fell on his ass. Garrick stifled a chuckle.

“Tell me.” Bailey stepped closer.

Her scent reached him again and Garrick inhaled deeply, loving how she smelled. “What is it that you are wearing?”

“Wearing?”

“The scent.” Garrick inhaled again. “You smell so good.”

“You’re smelling me.” Bailey looked amused. “Peaches and honeysuckle is what I wear. I make body lotion, perfume, bath gels and those sorts of things. I also custom make fragrances for people too. That’s what my business will be.”

“Peaches and honeysuckle. I’m going to remember that.” Garrick studied the empty glass display cases before focusing back on her. “It must be interesting making things like you do…”

“Don’t change the subject. We can discuss that another time.” Bailey moved even closer. “Tell me what you were about to say.”

“I’m done looking like a fool.” Garrick shrugged. “What I was about say doesn’t matter.”

“I’m thinking it does.” Bailey studied him then smiled softly. “Being a firefighter must take lots of bravery.”

“It’s my job.” Garrick didn’t know where she was going with what she was saying.

“But you save people. Sometimes face death when you do. So saying what you want to shouldn’t make you hesitate when you face that sort of thing.”

“Your logic makes no sense.” Garrick wasn’t sure what to make of her. She seemed to be teasing him yet he sensed she was very serious.

“To me it does. And at this point, that is all that matters.” Bailey rubbed her hand down the side of her jeans. “How about I speculate what you were wondering? You were wondering if I would go out with you.”

Garrick smiled. “You’re arrogant to assume that is what I wanted.”

“Oh, it’s not arrogance. It is surety. It was the look in your gaze. Now that I know you’re not some crook, I realize that you weren’t casing my place. You were working up to asking me out. I’ll save you the trouble.”

Disappointment filled Garrick at the finality in her tone. He couldn’t read her intentions but after the fiasco of his frightening her and making her think he was a criminal, he could only imagine she was about to say no.

“I’m going to ask you out.” Bailey moved nearer until she was almost touching him. “Go out with me, Garrick.”

“That doesn’t sound like a question,” he pointed out.

“I’m not good at asking for stuff.” She smiled sheepishly.

“Somehow I like that.” Garrick couldn’t resist. He stroked down her cheek with his knuckle.

Bailey shivered slightly then turned her head into his touch.

“Yes, I’ll go out with you.” “Good.” She held onto his wrist. “I’ll give you a few days to clear the ringing in your ears from my kick.”

“Why do I feel you are trying not to laugh at me?”

“Because your expression when you got hit was priceless,” Bailey said, squeezing his wrist gently before releasing him. “In hindsight, I now realize you were yelling back at me but not in anger. I just don’t know why you made the sound you did.”

“I was trying to be funny to break the ice by doing a weird mating call to match your yell. Thought that would make you laugh, but I should have realized since you’ve never seen me before you wouldn’t take it as intended. It was stupid of me.” He admitted, “It’s been a while since I dated.”

“Then I kicked you. Makes me think the follow up to that would be what the hell kind of kinky foreplay is this?”

Garrick chuckled. “See, a sense of humor is a good ice breaker.”

“Mating call. That is priceless. Oh God, wait until I tell my friends about that.” Bailey winked. “Get a promise from them so they don’t tease you about it. You’ll have to tell me about your not dating and why not on our date. Does Saturday work for you?”

“So long?” It was five days away. “It’s your next day off.”

“How’d you know that?”

“Indigo.” Bailey rolled her eyes. “She observes things and mentioned noticing how your shifts work.”

“Why would she notice that?” Garrick glanced at Indigo, who was with the others.

“She likes information and makes it her business to know,” Bailey said.

He glanced at her. “Okay. But Saturday is a long time to wait to see you again.”

“But you see me when I come here.” Bailey patted his hand as she released her hold. “Maybe if you get time while you’re on shift, or getting off, you could come over and offer your help.”

“I might just do that.” Garrick stared at her. “You’re turning out to be a surprising woman. Very unpredictable. I find that enticing.”

“Unpredictability is a good thing. Keeps you on your toes and intrigued to want to know more about me. That’s a win-win. So if you don’t get a chance to come see me before, I look forward to seeing you for our date on Saturday.” She put her hand in her pocket and pulled out a card, then a pen from her ponytail, before writing on the back. “Call me with your address.”

Garrick took the card as Bailey walked away. Garrick stared after her, watching the sexy sway of her hips.

Page Notes ~ All the Wright Moves

July 20th, 2016

Today’s Page Notes is a little taste from All the Wright Moves (McKingley, Book #1) a book I co-authored with Aliyah Burke. Enjoy.

The fog of desire cleared from Warwick’s mind. Katiya bit her lips, straightened her shoulders then looked at him.

“War—”

“Before you list all the reasons why our dating would not work out or say that we are from different worlds and all that, let me just stay that we’re both from the same world. Earth. And this earth man wants to go out with you, an earth woman.” He looked her over again. “Among other things. See you as often as I can and get to know each other very well. So are you ready for that, Katiya Wright, or are you too afraid to give us a chance?”

Katiya’s light hazel eyes narrowed, then a vixenish grin curved her lips. She turned and went back into the house. In moments she returned with a bag that matched her shoes over her shoulder. He bit back a harsh groan as her body brushed his.

“I need to close the door,” she stated.

He stepped back. She closed, locked the door and turned to face him. Warwick’s lips twitched at the challenge in her eyes.

“If you weren’t planning to go out with me, why are you dressed so sexy?” he asked.

She smiled another wanton grin. “You think you have all the answers, Warwick, but if we’re going to date—how did you put it? Often and maybe other things?—the first thing you should learn is when I try for sexy, you’ll know it.” She moved closer and spoke, her breath wafting against him. “This old thing is just the warm up. The next thing is, don’t say anything you can’t back up.”

She went to step away back but he put his hand on her waist, stilling her. Lowering his head, he spoke close to her ear.

“And you’ll know soon, I don’t say things I can’t stand behind.”

Page Notes ~ Conquering Jazz

July 13th, 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.”

What are you doing this weekend?

I’m back…

March 26th, 2016

Haven’t been around much online. A few months ago I slipped on some ice and hurt my leg. I was in alot of pain. After getting it checked I was given treatment for it. For the last few months I’ve been in physical therapy. So between treatment for my leg and the day job I’ve been really tired. With this I’ve had to delay some plans I had. :(

But awesome news is I’m much better now. :) Now I’m getting ready to start those plans. I’ll post in my newsletter about what I have planned then everywhere else afterward.

Excited to be back and for what I have planned. :)
