Star-Kissed Lovers for #SweetestDay

Is there anything sweeter than a kiss?

Sweetest Day started out as a sweet day in 1916 as Candy Day.

I’d like to celebrate  this day with a poem.

======

Star-Kissed Lovers

There once was a lass
With a lot of brass

When she met a lad
Who looked so sad

“Sweet candy is what you need,” said she
Did she give him chocolate to make him happy?

No, ‘twas something sweeter to take him to bliss
A big, yummy, sweet, delicious kiss!

A Kentucky Christmas and a holiday piano on #KentuckyDay

A small fictional town in my Christmas Piano Tree story

 

I remember Christmas in Kentucky when I was a kid.

We lived in a lot of states, but I loved Kentucky with its beautiful woods and small towns like Versailles and Corbin.

And Kissing Creek.

Oh, but wait . . .

Kissing Creek exists only in “The Christmas Piano Tree.”

It’s my manuscript on submission to Hallmark Publishing . . .

It’s a homespun small town where a pretty young war widow lives with her little girl. When an old Army buddy of her late husband shows up looking for a hot meal, she’s intrigued . . . he’s homeless, but he has a secret that will change her life!

Keep you posted . . .

PS — actually I have two Christmas books on submission to Hallmark!

What if your first kiss was just plain awful? Virgin Kiss: a high school #MeToo story

Virgin_Kiss (2014_09_10 01_32_35 UTC)What if your first kiss, and I mean your VIRGIN KISS was just plain awful?

Meet Riley Murphy — you won’t believe her high school kissing disaster in VIRGIN KISS

#FREE July 6-8,  2018 Friday through Sunday.

A very short #kissing story

I bet we all remember teenage angst…there’s nothing more angsty (if there is such a word) than that first kiss. Even worse is when it’s not your dream guy.

It’s the guy in the school play.

And boy, does he have ‘tude. Like, power play to the max.

Riley almost lets him get the best of her, then she does something that empowers her in front of the whole school. Find out what that is in VIRGIN KISS

I wrote this before the #MeToo movement, but it was never more true today as the heroine fights back against this snarky guy in a funny and humorous way. And with a Chekhov play, too!

Grab your FREE copy of VIRGIN KISS, a YA very short story. 

=========

Meet Riley Murphy, a new student at Holywell High:

To overcome my shyness, my mom convinced me to try out for the Drama Club. Somehow I landed the leading role in a one-act Chekhov play. Yes, Chekhov. I played this mad, beautiful countess with passion and heart. I loved it. I came alive on stage. I could do anything, be anybody, say anything, I could—

—kiss the male lead?

A gangly sophomore named Luke Vanmeer with long greasy hair and an upper lip curled in a perpetual snarl? He was going to anoint my virgin lips with my first big kiss?

Forget the Altoids. I needed a stress pill.

I quit the play. They could find another dupe. Not me. I wasn’t going to let him use my lips for kissing practice.

Then I heard this little voice in my head telling me this was acting, right? Going through the motions at rehearsals and on stage didn’t count on the kissing scale. I could pucker up with him and still be a kissing virgin.

After that, I sailed through rehearsals, knowing my lines, and “connecting to my character,” according to the director, who insisted on method acting. That’s how the trouble started. We didn’t rehearse the kiss. He wanted a real kiss on stage, he said, not some phony smooch.

Find out what  happens when Luke tries to embarrass Riley on stage in front of the whole school… VIRGIN KISS is FREE July 6-8, 2018 on Kindle!! VIRGIN KISS is a YA very short story,

And check out the video with Riley:

Come Fly with Me . . . First Class with a sexy billionaire on #WorldTheatreDay

I’ve always loved the theatre — esp. that moment when you hold your breath right before the curtain comes up.

The magic is about to begin . . .

I wanted to capture that magic with my story COME FLY WITH ME about a girl trying to get home and a billionaire so I recorded the opening scene with dialogue only. Like a play!!

I hope you enjoy it.

PS — Bonus below: more about this sexy billionaire from his POV.

==============

Jace Chantiers, the gorgeous hero in COME FLY WITH ME, is a sucker for a pretty woman, so when he overhears Kacie Bennett begging the airline ticket agent to get her a seat…any seat…on the last flight out of London on New Year’s Eve, he buys her a first class ticket home.

The woman was trouble. An itch up his backside he shouldn’t scratch, but he did. Strange, but Jace was enjoying himself more than he had in a long time. She stoked a fire in his belly that didn’t go straight to his dick but to his brain. She issued him a challenge he couldn’t ignore and it was killing him.

When he heard her talking earlier on her cell, her voice cracking as she tried to find out what happened to her sister, he’d pulled the ticket agent aside and used his influence to find out more about her. Her story got to him. Desperate to get home, credit card limit too low for anything but economy. Baby sister in trouble. What else could he do but buy her the last empty seat on the special midnight flight to San Francisco? In first class. Next to him. She wasn’t his type, but she sure had a saucy attitude and confidence that took a man off his edge. Made him practically beg her to accept the damn ticket.

Come_Fly_cover_Dec2015Jace had never done that for any woman. He’d always taken what he wanted. An old habit he couldn’t shake since he was growing up in a gritty beach town in SoCal and discovered no one would give a kid with no name a break. He never did get the smells of hot tar, dead jellyfish, and overripe trash out of his lungs and spent his life always one knockout punch away from the next fight.

Flying first class was one of the perks of getting out of that life. He preferred flying commercial over having his own jet. He liked watching people, seeing how they reacted to the world around them, not sitting by himself in a private plane. Alone.

Not bad for a punk who had nothing for wheels but a broken down skateboard when he was a teen. Now he was at the top of his game, a frequent flier and well-acquainted with the luxury of the airbus. So when this voluptuous babe with the golden-girl legs went on a verbal sparring match with him, it made him sit up and take notice. Women always wanted something from him.

Kacie didn’t.

He couldn’t let her go until he found out why.

Book 2: Royal Bride Can a sexy prince give a girl a second chance at love?

 

My computer woes and me on #WorldPoetryDay

Once upon a computer . . .

 

There once was a lass who wrote day and night

Stories of love and romance and flight

 

Of runaway brides looking for a man so fine

And lonely princesses with Rapunzel hair divine

 

Then one day the lass lost her stories so fair

And oh she was filled with such despair

 

For her computer choked and rattled and froze like ice

No more stories could she write on this old device

 

So she fretted and pined and sent it away

To a place not far to fix it straightaway

 

Then she sat and waited and oh how she prayed

That someday soon her computer would be saved

 

When alas she brought it home and turned it on

She discovered her stories still lived on

 

Now she’s back at work writing stories so fine

And grateful she is to write this rhyme!!

============

Yep, the lass is me and it was a maddening time with not one, but two computers that went crazy on me. A while coming back, but I’m getting there!

Happy World Poetry Day!

My bad boy billionaire is doing his holiday shopping at Mamie’s Club. Check out the sales!

Heading out to the mall for those last minute Christmas sales before the holiday?

I bet my bad boy billionaire Nick Radnor has other plans. Mr. One-Percenter thinks nothing of dropping $5,000 for a suit or a measly $3,000 for a bottle of champagne.

I imagine Nick is at Mamie’s, his Gentlemen’s Club, checking out the girls for his favorite past time…BDSM.

Wouldn’t it be fun if the girls at Mamie’s ran holiday sales?

So here you go. MAMIE’S deals just for you Nick Radnors out there looking for personalized Holiday BDSM treats:

Two girls wearing Christmas stockings and heels for the price of one.

Half off on caning.

Private “Strip-Mas” show at midnight for early shoppers only.

Christmas suckers wearing cherry-flavored lipstick.

And Nick’s favorite:

Christmas comes but once a year, but at Mamie’s, we guarantee you’ll come more than once, then come again!

Happy Holidays and have a Cruel Yule!!
