    Sunday Snippet – Romance Is Dangerous – Body of Work

    Sunday snippet time, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors eight-sentence meme.

    This week finds us with Cassie and Brian from BODY OF WORK, with Cassie giving the sweet-talking hero her thoughts on romance…

    “You have something against romance?” he asked.

    “Yes, actually, I do. Romance is dangerous. And when you talk to me that way, I want more days like this. Making dinner together and endless sex and other dangerously romantic stuff. I am a woman, you know.”

    His head lifted enough for her to see the twinkle in his eyes. “Oh, I did notice — though I’m always up for a refresher course of that fact.”

    Thanks for stopping by to read my Sunday Snippet. We’re still hanging out with Brian and Cassie from BODY OF WORK. In this little scene, Brian, the 6’2″ hero, is reaching around Cassie. That’s all the setup you should need. 😉


    “Long arms for the win,” he said as her eyes tracked his movement.

    “I like that you’re big.” A pink blush flooded her cheeks. “I didn’t mean your — you know.”

    Both of them looked down at his you know.

    “Not big enough?” As if commanded, his cock stood a little taller. Good boy.

    Sunday Snippet – Body of Work

    bodyofworkTime for eight very sexy sentences!

    Today’s excerpt is from BODY OF WORK, and comes to you as part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. Make sure you check out the list of participating authors, and thank you so much for stopping here.  🙂

    On to the snippet. What woman wouldn’t like to hear a speech like this one, from Brian to Cassie…

    ♥◊♥

    “Give me a taste of rough and raw and I have to fight not to get lost in it, to give in to my possessiveness. And it’s so fucking strong with you. If I had my way, I’d tattoo my name on your pretty little body as a warning to anybody who dared look too closely, and a reminder to you exactly where you belong. Then I’d keep you so incredibly well-fucked you wouldn’t have the time or energy to look at another man.”

    At some point during his speech, her bones must’ve dissolved, because she’d utterly melted against his big, hard body. “Stay.”

    “There’s more.”

    “I don’t care — tell me after I’m so well-fucked the only thing I can do is lie there and listen.”

    Sunday Snippet – Body of Work

    It’s summer here! Finally! Today’s Sunday snippet is from BODY OF WORK, and comes to you as part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. It’s summer where Brian and Cassie are, too. In this excerpt, they’re in her backyard, attempting to have a dinner date, but Cassie’s barbeque has just died a spectacular death on her patio, and she’s agreed to let him get rid of the debris for her.

    And, here we go, with the snippet. Take it away, Brian…

    bodyofwork“Anything else I can take care of?”

    She tapped a finger on his chest and tried not to giggle. Or give too much credence to his offer, tempting as it was to picture him as the man of her house. “Do you do yard work?”

    “I do.” A smile tugged at the corner of his mouth. The wind that followed set fire to her panties. “But I know for a fact you don’t have a bush that needs trimming.”

    Welcome. 🙂 Today’s bite-sized excerpt is from BODY OF WORK, and is part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    This snippet finds Brian at Cassie’s house for a dinner date…only they’re not thinking about food, unless you consider catnip salad? blue-divider-png

    “You’re like catnip. I want to rub my body against you and purr.”

    “I don’t have a problem with that.” His fingertips slid under the hemline of her top. “I like it when you purr.”

    “What about when I scratch?” She raked her fingernails upward, through his hair. “Or bite?”

    Cassie has fantasized about the ginger-haired personal trainer for months. Brian is friendly, but never more—until he appears on her doorstep and shows her how much her flirting has affected him. The more she’s with him, the more Cassie wants the fairytale, not just hot sex with the six-two hunk. She can give Brian full access to her body, but after her ex’s reaction to her explicit photography business, sharing her secrets, and her heart, isn’t an option.

     

    Brian knows better than to break the rules. Don’t date gym members. Keep his inner beast on a leash during sex. Cassie tested his resolve on number one her first day in the gym. Shattered the second rule when he touched her. The petite pixie shares his preferences in the bedroom. She makes him laugh and love—but past mistakes haunt him, emotionally and tangibly. Cassie’s worth the price he’ll pay for breaking the rules. Now he must convince her to give him her heart.

    muscular-guySunday Snippet time, courtesy of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    This week’s bite-sized excerpt is from BODY OF WORK, my new release featuring a 6’2″ ginger-haired personal trainer hero. He also moonlights as a bouncer at a bar, which is where this scene with the heroine takes place.


    Cupping her tiny waist, he lifted her from the spot, took a few steps to the right and deposited her on the floor. “Stay.”

    Sneaky little pixie darted around him and plastered her back against the damn door. “I’m not your pet.”

    He crowded her. Curled his fingers under her choker-style necklace and tipped her face up. “If you were, you’d be better trained.”


    Add this yummy, ginger alpha male to your Goodreads shelf, or pick him up from your favorite e-book retailer.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    She handed the bartender the cash and lifted the glass. The aromas of sugar and alcohol filled her nose. She believed him that it’d taste good, but she bet the innocent-looking concoction still held the power to numb her face. “It’s really pretty, what is it?”

    “Loch Ness Monster.”

    “Ooh, sounds dangerous — should I be scared?”

    Another laugh as he placed her change on the bar. “Only if you have multiple sightings.”


    Yup, that’s a real drink. Here’s how you make it:

    In a glass, layer equal quantities of melon liqueur, Bailey’s Irish Cream, and Jägermeister, in that order. Then, bottoms up!

    Today’s Sunday Snippet comes from my May release, BODY OF WORK, and is part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    The heroine, Cassie, is a photographer. In this snippet, she’s getting ready to shoot a couple of her repeat clients, Paolo and Beth. I hope this excerpt makes you curious about Cassie’s photography business, and well, the rest of the book, too! 😉


    Paolo was a demanding partner, sexually — unyielding and rough at times. Through it all, his complete adoration of Beth was more obvious than the sun on the most brilliant summer day. And it went both ways. Cassie had shot her share of engagement and wedding photos, pictures of couples allegedly at the pinnacle of true love. None of those brides or brides-to-be compared to the depth of emotion Cassie saw in Beth’s eyes. Every time Paolo reddened Beth’s porcelain skin with his palm, paddle or teeth, Cassie saw Beth’s love for him ratchet higher. She gave what he wanted. He took what she needed him to take.

    This Sunday’s eight sentences are from my new release, BODY OF WORK, and part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    In this snippet, Cassie has arrived at the gym and she’s walking through the parking lot.

    She spied Brian’s dark-green Jeep near the door. Due to last night’s storm, the top was up and the doors in place. Not the norm. The man preferred it stripped to the bare bones, a deathtrap on four thick wheels. She’d only seen him driving it one time, but the image was a keeper. Ginger-haired lumberjack of a man with one hand on the wheel, one hand on the roll bar overhead, his left foot sticking out the doorless gap as he peeled into the lot. A man’s vehicle had never done much for her until the day she saw Brian in this Jeep. Consider her among the converted.

    Can you picture him? I hope so!

    BODY OF WORK is now available from Amazon, Kobo, All Romance, Ellora’s Cave.

    In this scene, Brian and Cassie are in her bedroom, ‘together’ together for the first time. They’ve agreed to swap evidence of their mutual attraction, which, to this point, neither had acted on. It’s Cassie’s turn to ′fess up.

    “I took your picture at the gym — with my phone — more than one picture, actually.”

    A massive grin spread across his face. “You really are sneaky. What did you do with the pictures?”

    Oh, the usual, propped the phone against her pillow and looked at them while masturbating. “Nothing.” She sounded like a woman who’d crossed the desert without a drop to drink.

    “I’d like to see that.”
