Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work & School Day and don’t forget the mocha latte…

teddy_bear_work_day

Writers write.

Teddy bears cuddle.

Who is in more need of a cuddle than a writer staring at the empty page?

So on Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work & School Day, grab those wonderful teddies and sit them next to your computer. Then watch the words fly onto the page as they whisper into your ear. Helping you write that love scene with more oomph…or googling research for you.

But if your teddy bears are like mine, they don’t work for peanuts.

Nope. It’s got to be double lattes. Pumpkin spice and a salted caramel mocha.

Who am I to argue? I think I’ll join them…delicious.

Happy writing!

Check out my Royals of Monterra Kindle Worlds: ROYAL DARE

When PRD_KindleWorldsrincess Violetta goes off to rehab at the end of Sariah Wilson’s (Royal Date) Kindle Worlds Royals of Monterra, she can’t take her tiara with her.

Princess Violetta is the younger sister of the hero, Prince Nico, in Sariah’s story.

She’s also a meth addict.

When she goes off to rehab in the States (after being tossed out of a posh London rehab), she doesn’t tell anyone she’s a princess.

Though her British accent and her purse collection (who else but a princess would bring all this stuff to rehab? asked a resident) earn her the nickname of “Princess.”‘

Still, it ain’t easy getting clean…even for a princess.

COMING *** November 8, 2016: ROYAL BRIDE — Zoey’s story from ROYAL DARE.***

————-

I first met Princess Violetta in Sariah Wilson’s story, ROYAL DATE.

You can meet see what happened to her afterward in rehab in ROYAL DARE.

I fell in love with the Monterra family, especially Violetta. I call her the “misunderstood princess.” She has everything—looks, money and a title—yet she fell victim to the seductive power of drugs. Why? I wondered. What led her down this path?

I was intrigued to answer that question, but more importantly, I wanted to know what happened to Violetta when she went to rehab. How hard is it for a princess to get clean? And will she find her prince when she does?

I answer this question and more in my Kindle Worlds “The Royals of Monterra” story, ROYAL DARE.

I hope you enjoy it!

NAKED SUSHI 

Excerpt 5

Oh, Lord, what next?

I did nothing to stop him when he cupped my breasts, wondering how far he’d go. He trailed his fingers along the flimsy black lace edging of my bra.

“Mmm…” he moaned.

Was he enjoying the kiss? Or surprised that a geek like me was into sexy underwear?

Just wait until you see my new French-cut, black satin panties, I wanted tell him. But I was so conscious of his devouring mouth on mine, my entire being trembling with suppressed emotion, I didn’t dare break the lip-lock.

Besides, I wasn’t going to let him get that far.

Was I?

This week Pepper finds herself at the mercy of a sexy thief in the copy room in Naked Sushi.

Check out this Vine video–my 6-second wonders I call them–that loop over and over again with my weekly excerpt:

Here is the text for excerpt 4 of Naked Sushi

I purred like a kitten, listening to my inner rhythm and loving it. I gave in willingly, my hormones flowing in harmony with his need, my need.

“Silly, dumb, stupid” were adjectives I’d use to describe my actions, but what girl stopped to think when a kiss was this good? I didn’t.

My body became the prey of this corporate raider Casanova. His hands were all over me, toying with my heavy red-plaid flannel shirt, yanking at the buttons hanging on for dear life.

With one small tug, he popped off the top two.

Okay, here we go: SEVEN sexy words this week:

“Are you as hot as your name?”

That’s what the FBI hottie in Naked Sushi says to Pepper when he corners her in the copy room where she works at midnight. This is such a fun, sexy scene I’ve made an audio/video of the action where these seven words appear.

These NAKED SUSHI excerpts are fun to do and bring a diff dimension to the story. Would you like to see more? Let me know in the comments section!

Naked Sushi debuts today! Is Pepper as Hot as Her Name?

Is Pepper as hot as her name? That’s what the FBI hottie asks her in this audio/video I put together for “Naked Sushi” — my Cosmo Red-Hot Read from Harlequin that debuts today.

I so enjoyed getting into Pepper’s tech-head and seeing what it’s like for a smart girl trying to get ahead in the field of computer programming.

She’s learned to be “one of the boys” with her red-plaid flannel shirts and zany remarks, but when she sees what she thinks is the “sexy new guy” in the copy room at midnight, she soon finds herself up to her eyeballs in corporate espionage and in the arms of an FBI hottie…

I loved doing the voice for Pepper’s character…I also added some sexy music and fun sound effects.

This super blogging group is growing every week! We’ve got a great bunch of authors with amazing Sexy Snippets!! Be sure to check out the fab authors and their sexy snippets HERE.

This week is Vine excerpt No 3. Pepper has just met this cool guy in the copy room where she works as a video game designer. She doesn’t know he’s an undercover FBI agent…

Naked Sushi

Excerpt 3:

He grinned and then took his hand away from his pocket and cupped my chin.  When he stared into my eyes, my knees turned to honey, all warm and melty. A shiver went through me.

“What’s your name?” he asked.

“Pepper.”

“Are you as hot as your name?” he wanted to know, bumping his hip into mine, his hot breath steaming up my glasses. His tough, sexy talk took me to a place I’d only dreamed of going. His voice gripped me, making me squeeze my pubic muscles in a delicious manner and then release them.

“How’d you like to find out?” I said, tossing him a wicked grin.

I loved saying that, figuring he’d laugh like the other programmers and then slap me on the back and ask me to go have a beer.

Imagine my surprise when he didn’t.

My Sexy Saturday 19 Naked Sushi: Video Excerpt 2

I’ve got DOUBLE the sexy snippet fun for Week 19!! Two videos!

MY SEXY SATURDAY: Check out the sexy snippets from fabulous authors HERE!! 7 words, 7 sentences or 7 paragraphs.

Week 19 of this super blogging group. Pumpkins are in the stores, even snow on the ground in some parts of the U.S.…but it’s getting hotter here each week. We’ve got a great bunch of authors with amazing Sexy Snippets!! Be sure to check out the fab authors and their sexy snippets HERE.

I posted a sexy snippet from Naked Sushi Chapter One where my heroine, Pepper O’Malley, is undercover as a naked sushi model spying on her ex-boss when she sees the sexy thief (she doesn’t know he’s an FBI agent) who got her fired cozying up to him.

Two short videos from VINE and INSTAGRAM — the Vine video loops over and over so you can take your time reading the snippet. Instagram is longer at 16 seconds, but it doesn’t loop.

PS — the silky border that I used as a frame around my videos is a remnant from ornate kimono designed by a kimono maker I met when I was taking kimono lessons from a Japanese sensei

My Sexy Saturday 18: Meet Pepper’s FBI Hottie in “Naked Sushi”

MY SEXY SATURDAY: Check out the sexy snippets from fabulous authors HERE!! 7 words, 7 sentences or 7 paragraphs.

Week 18 of this super blogging group. The leaves are falling…but it’s getting hotter each week. We’ve got a great bunch of authors with amazing Sexy Snippets!! Be sure to check out the fab authors and their sexy snippets HERE.

In my Cosmo Red-Hot Read from Harlequin,Naked Sushi,” just what was Special Agent Steve Raines thinking when Pepper O’Malley has an encounter of the erotic kind with him in the copy room? It’s midnight and the two of them are alone in the video game company where she works.

In this snippet, Steve tries to explain to his female boss, Jordan, what happened…

—————-

He’d frisked her to make sure she wasn’t private security packing heat. “I made love to her.”

“I imagine she couldn’t resist your charm,” she snarled. 

“It works on you every time.” 

“Can it, Steven. You’re the best looking field agent I have, but the FBI didn’t hire you for your looks.” 

He let that pass. “Believe me, Jordan, you haven’t seen this girl.” He whistled under his breath. “She’s sensational.” He’d never forget how she ground her butt into his groin, teasing him, making him crazy. Dry humping him until he couldn’t take it any longer. To knock him off balance? He had to find out. He’d slid her jeans down over her smooth skin and grabbed her ass. A more perfect ass he’d never seen. And one that gave a guy all kinds of sinful thoughts. Damn, he was going ballistic over this chick. 

Why? Because she’d touched a nerve in him. 

For all her brave talk, he swore she wasn’t as easy a lay as she made out.Maybe it was the glasses, which he found sexy, that gave her the innocent air. In the end it was his job to make sure she wasn’t a threat to him.
