Six Sentence Sunday--Midnight Cravings



Below is a Six Sentence snippet from my naughty werewolf novella, MIDNIGHT CRAVINGS, currently selling for 35% off at The Wild Rose Press during their Black Friday Sale this weekend!

While you're here, don't forget to comment on Reading Romance's Fall Giveaway Hop for a chance to win swag, including a free ebook from me!



About the snippet: After a painful break-up, all Audrey wants is a night with a hot Greek lover to help her forget. But she doesn't know Stephon, a lycan, can only mate for life...


"So you’re holding out for someone special or…or for something in particular?” 

He lay beside her and drew her hand to his heart. “I am waiting for one woman. A woman who will take me as I am and want no other.” His eyes searched hers. “Because I will want no other after her.” 

“Lucky girl.” 

Blurb: Audrey has a job most people only dream about, visiting exotic destinations. But her new assignment, writing a review of a remote villa in Greece, exposes more than she’d bargained for—the handsome locals are really murderous werewolves, and worse, her steamy Greek lover is a lycanthrope with Midnight Cravings.

Commitment-phobic Audrey wants nothing more than to prove her worth as a journalist in rustic Arcadia. Then she meets Stephon, a charming local, and wonders if she’ll be able to put the past behind her and learn how to say “yes”…to everything.
But looks, money, and sex appeal mask an ancient evil. Beneath the quaint facade of the village, a curse as old as time keeps Stephon from giving his body—or his heart—to anyone but his true mate. Because when the moon is full, the cravings begin.

Fall Giveaway Blog Hop


fall in love giveaway hop

Welcome to one of the Fall in Love All Over Again Giveaway Hop stops, part of a MASSIVE giveaway!

I love historical and time travel romances. In honor of the blog hop theme "Fall in Love All Over Again," I'm offering a free ebook to one commenter.

 Comment below to enter to win a copy of YOUR choice--Moonlight Madness on Kindle or any of my other backstock titles on ebook. 




Moonlight Madness-- a time-travel/Renaissance romance
While visiting Wales, Rance Kingsley, Viscount Waldenham, receives a warning that his daughter will soon be kidnapped by Spanish enemies. Before he can aid her, Rance tumbles into a mysterious portal to the future. His only hope is to find his soulmate, the key to returning. However his curse continues when all signs point to Tess Hartman, a straight-laced teacher, as his match. After a cheating boyfriend, the only male Tess wants in her life is Dante, a troubled teen she would like to adopt. To bond with the boy, Tess brings him on a class field trip to Britain. But the Shakespeare experience becomes too real when sexy, eccentric Rance seduces her. When Tess falls for Rance's kisses and travels with him across four centuries, she's convinced he's made a mistake. How could she love a man who deceived her, separating her from everything she cares about, a man with MOONLIGHT MADNESS?

Here is an excerpt from Moonlight Madness:


“Thou art madder than I. Or mayhap more brave. The lightning.” Rance pointed to the roiling sky above.
He held his open doublet over their heads, blocking out some of the rain at his back.
The sight of him, so thoughtful, damp and sexy, set off seismic tremors in her stomach. An earthy masculine scent, his scent, drifted down from the doublet, and its warmth wrapped around her.
“Danté came back inside,” he told her. “Mayhap the rain will be gone soon. Probably by the time we reach the castle if we leave now.”
She couldn’t possibly spend another moment with this much temptation. Already, her fingers curled at her sides, craving to reach out and touch his rippling body, so plainly visible beneath the damp shirt.
She took a deep bracing breath. “Kiss me.”
“What?” Rance’s expression froze.
“I said kiss me. Now before I change my mind.” She tucked her dripping hair behind her ears and stared up at him in challenge. “You said if I kissed you you’d leave me alone. So kiss me, and then you can go on your way. I’m calling off the trip to Chepstow Castle. I’m soaked and the rain’s not letting up. You can call a taxi to come get you, and you could be back at the theater before the next performance.”
“I did say as much, but art thou sure? Is that what you want, what you truly want?” His gaze dropped to her mouth before floating back up to her eyes. A slight frown formed between his brows.
“Yes. Let’s be done. If all you’re after is a kiss, then do it already—”
His lips stopped hers, cutting off her words and stealing her breath. Holding his jacket aloft prevented him from touching her with his hands—but not with his body.

Six Sentence Sunday


Today I'm sharing a snippet from my new historical romance, MOONLIGHT MADNESS. Rance Kingsley, a notorious rake from the 17th century finds himself the victim of an ancient Druid curse. 

The Official Blurb for Moonlight Madness: 
While visiting Wales, Rance Kingsley, Viscount Waldenham, receives a warning that his daughter will soon be kidnapped by Spanish enemies. Before he can aid her, Rance tumbles into a mysterious portal to the future. His only hope is to find his soulmate, the key to returning. However his curse continues when all signs point to Tess Hartman, a straight-laced teacher, as his match. After a cheating boyfriend, the only male Tess wants in her life is Dante, a troubled teen she would like to adopt. To bond with the boy, Tess brings him on a class field trip to Britain. But the Shakespeare experience becomes too real when sexy, eccentric Rance seduces her. When Tess falls for Rance's kisses and travels with him across four centuries, she's convinced he's made a mistake. How could she love a man who deceived her, separating her from everything she cares about, a man with MOONLIGHT MADNESS?

From MOONLIGHT MADNESS, a Six Sunday snippet: 


Was it her? Could it be? Mayhap a kiss would bring the final sign he needed….
            Rance drew her near, aware that her restrained hand had balled into a fist of resistance, but too far gone, his patience could not be reclaimed. He bent toward her, his hair falling to frame her face and his. Lips hovering above hers, he explained softly, “I must find my mate.”

No Shave November

I thought hard about what my first post for November would be. I don't NaNo, because I'm cranking out every word I possibly can each day anyway. Of course, being thankful is on everyone's mind this time of year, so I thought of things I'm thankful for. Family, friends, my job, health, writing, men...

Then it hit me. No-shave November.

I'm not crazy about facial hair, but there are some instances that make me reconsider. So today's post is my homage to No-shave November...

It's time to expose those beards the guys have been growing all month. Bring the men out of the dungeon...





A little salt with your pepper? I enjoy seasoning myself.





If any man can pull off a beard with style, it's Firth!





And my personal favorite...


Just enough for a nice stubble-burn. 

What's your whisker preference?
