    Sunday Snippet – Crossing the Line – The Proposition

    Sunday Snippet time, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    CrossingTheLine_Cover_821x1272In previous snippets, we had a glimpse of Derrick and Hanna right before the wedding. If you want to know exactly what happened, you can read the full first chapter and find out. Today, we’re jumping ahead in time and joining Derrick and Hanna in their kitchen, where Derrick has a not-so-little proposition for his wife…

    “The videos you watch, the stuff we pretend—we can do that if you want. Really do it.”

    A couple of seconds ticked by before it clicked. “What…why? No, no, I don’t need that. Just you, you’re all I need.”

    Ah, there it was, the importance of a single word. She didn’t need to be with two men at once, but she hadn’t said she didn’t want to be.

    Intrigued? I have good news — you can buy CROSSING THE LINE and read the whole book!

    Sunday Snippet – Crossing The Line – Listen to Me

    It’s Sunday Snippet time. This week’s bite-sized excerpt is from my upcoming release, CROSSING THE LINE. When you’re done here, head over to see the full list of participating Weekend Writing Warriors.

    Last week, Derrick Sutter was trying to sneak a peek at his bride-to-be before the ceremony. In doing so, he overheard something nobody wants to hear right before their wedding. I know some of you wondered who said the dreaded words at the end of last week’s snippet…

    COVER_forweb_1“It’s not too late to call it off.” Mrs. Collins’ voice, in its usual, judgmental tone.

    “Mom, please.”

    “Hanna, you need to listen to me.”

    All the muscles in Derrick’s body seized. If anybody walked out of one of these second-floor rooms, he was fucked. Because he couldn’t move. All he could do was listen, same as the woman he loved had just been ordered to do.

    Thanks for stopping by — I hope you’ll check back next week for another snippet.

    Crossing the Line

    Derrick can’t give his wife the thing her biological clock wants, but he can give her what her very healthy libido craves—a threesome. Of the two guys, one girl variety. And he knows just who to invite as their third.

    Ten years ago, Hanna danced with two guys at a bar. The one she went home with became her husband, a man who still brings love, lust and adventure to her life, daily. When Derrick suggests inviting the other man, his longtime best friend, Jeremy, along for a sexy weekend getaway, Hanna can’t help worrying. Nor can she resist what will undoubtedly be the hottest birthday party ever.

    Everything would’ve been fine if they’d had their fun that weekend, then gone back to normal.

    But they didn’t. And things will never be the same—for any of them.

    Sunday Snippet – Crossing the Line – I Do, or…

    Sunday Snippet time! As always, pop over to the Weekend Writing Warriors site for the complete list of participants.

    Today’s eight sentences are from the first page of CROSSING THE LINE, which releases November 18th. Less than two weeks left to wait!

    Last week, Derrick was battling with his tie as he got ready for his wedding day, and his best buddy posed a cryptic question. Today, we’re following Derrick as he goes in search of the bride-to-be.

    Thanks to the ultra-plush carpeting that ran through the house, nobody heard him climbing the stairs. Or walking down the hall toward the last door on the left, Hanna’s old bedroom. He’d have been happy to make things legal at some chapel in Niagara Falls, where she’d made him the happiest man alive by accepting his proposal. But deny Hanna the pretty, garden wedding she’d dreamed about and deserved? No way. So here they were. And here he was, three steps from his bride-to-be’s half-open door.

    “It’s not too late to call it off.”

    Sunday Snippet – Crossing the Line – Ties

    Welcome! It’s Sunday Snippet time, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    For this week’s bite-sized excerpt, I’m serving up the first eight sentences of my upcoming release, CROSSING THE LINE, available November 18th!

    COVER_forweb_1

    “Fucking ties. What idiot invented these things?” Derrick snapped the strip of gray silk from its stranglehold around his neck. “To hell with it, not doing it,” he said, launching the thing at a garbage can.

    Jeremy’s dark eyebrows rose, but Derrick’s best friend left the tie where it’d landed. “I have a solution. We pretend I won the coin toss that night. I get the girl, you get to avoid the marital noose.”

    After a decade together, things are perfect between Derrick and Hanna. Derrick can’t give his wife the thing her biological clock wants, but he can give her what her very healthy libido craves—a threesome. Of the two guys, one girl variety. And he knows just who to invite as their third.

    Ten years ago, Hanna danced with two guys at a bar. The one she went home with became her husband, a man who still brings love, lust and adventure to her life, daily. When Derrick suggests inviting the other man, his longtime best friend, Jeremy, along for a sexy weekend getaway, Hanna can’t help worrying. Nor can she resist what will undoubtedly be the hottest birthday party ever.

    Everything would’ve been fine if they’d had their fun that weekend, then gone back to normal.

    But they didn’t. And things will never be the same—for any of them.


    Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll visit again next week for another taste of CROSSING THE LINE. Have a great day!
