Book Description:

After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy is eagerly looking forward to her wedding.  But when Geoffrey is forced to marry another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she does not love.

A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies of King Edward’s court, although he has favored none.  However, as Geoffrey’s best friend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth.  Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?

Excerpt : 

From the corner of her eye, she caught movement in the doorway, and several men and ladies moved to make way for the final actor in this terrible play. Thomas strode grandly into the chamber, smiling as though he walked in a decorous procession. Attired in a splendid robe of green wool, adorned with velvet down the center edges and fur at collar and cuffs, he swept her a low bow. He laughed as he arose, but the sound died on his lips when at last he registered her figure in the blue chemise. The stunned look in his eyes was swiftly replaced by a hot hunger that made her gasp. Any hope she had of him honoring his promise died with that look.

“Lady Braeton.” He held out his hand, and Alyse had no choice but to take it. He raised it to his lips, searing her flesh with their warm touch. “You are a vision I scarce would credit this side of heaven.” She peered into his darkened eyes, seeking mercy. At his almost imperceptible nod, she could breathe again.

He released her and stepped back. “The wedding is done.” Thomas nodded to his attendants, who stepped forward. “Let the bedding be done as well.” Stretching forth his arms, he waited as the men stripped the robe from him, revealing his perfectly nude body beneath.

A brisk hum echoed around the room as the whispered comments of the ladies merged with the bawdy japes of the gentlemen. Thomas stood unflinching, a slight smile still on his lips.

Alyse’s mouth dropped open, and her gaze raced over his form as she tried to look everywhere and nowhere at once. His shoulders, smooth and broad, showed strength from wielding his sword these many years. The arms that had held her were now bare and sculpted like a statue’s. Her gaze slipped lower, to his chest matted thickly with pale hair over well-defined muscles. She tried to stop there, to force her eyes back to his face.

If you would like to purchase the first part of the trilogy, Betrothal, it is available at Amazon &  Smashwords

To Queef or not to Queef…that was the question.

To Queef or not to Queef that was the question.

So the other night over at Writerspace the question was asked, craziest/wildest plot? I answered not so much a plot as it is, scenes.

In One Way Ticket to Love, my poor protagonist, queefed. Oh yeah she did. I hated doing it to her. I did. Poor thing bawled in the bathroom trying to debate how she could turn her body so her ass would fit out the mini bathroom window.

Didn’t happen.

Thing was, her dude knew what it was. Understood, but wasn’t sure how to tactfully tell her “air happens.”

In another story, It Came Upon a Midnight Dream, my hero who happens to be a tiger shifter, stays in cat form (he works in a zoo) as to not alarm his mate who doesn’t realize who he is. By doing so, his animal has taken more control that he would have liked.

He sprays her.

Yep. You heard right. Sprayed. (Zhara was PISSED let me tell you)

I want to create stories that aren’t only steamy, but somewhere along the romantic adventure, gives you a laugh. An unexpected one. The snortle if you will.

I love snortles.

Now go get your Saturday happy on.
