Welcome back to Mid Week Tease!
Happy hump day, friends! With Christmas Eve only one week away and lots still to do to prepare, I entrusted this year’s final tease to Sin Pointe’s genius webmaster, Big Ben. Smoochies Benny for helping me today! Smoochies to our hostess, Sandra Bunino, for her year-round merriment and cheer! See y’all next year!
It looked like much hadn’t changed this year. He twisted his mouth to the side which Lily noticed right away. She reached way up and he felt her fingers softly try to rub his lopsided frown away. Not in a sexy way or anything, because that would be all kinds of wrong and Jaxon would murder him, but her touch felt really good. Sort of like most things he witnessed as the glorified errand boy between Sin Pointe and their women. Continue Reading
Happy Monday, friends! I know it’s not technically winter yet, but with holidays, festivities and snow falling on the site, I’m calling this month’s guest spotlights our Wintery Welcomes. I’ve asked everyone stopping by in December to tell us what their characters would most like to find under the tree. I just started reading Illicit Activity last night and it’s one of those that kicks off knee deep in an emotional, conflict-laden scene. I can’t wait to hear what these lovelies of J.R. Gray’s want most. Best part? Illicit Activity is a Free Read over at Evernight Publishing! Sending out warm, cozy wishes to you all and to Gray, thank you so much for visiting today. I think we’ve joined Gray in the middle of asking our December question. Let’s see what they’re saying…
Gray: What do you hope to find under the tree this year? Continue Reading
Welcome back to Mid Week Tease!
I’d like to send a special Happy Birthday shout out to our hostess, Sandra Bunino, you rock our socks! Thanks for organizing us each week for the tease. XOXO
Remember those childhood toys where we first learned to “walk the dog” and “travel around the world”? Well, that’s me. I’m a teasing yo-yo it seems! I was all set to share more from my wintery, reindeer WIP when I got the wonderful news from Evernight that the second book in the Sin Pointe series is now available in print! So to celebrate, I’m sharing a bit from Sin’s Flower. Here, Lily and Jaxon are away from the rest of the family’s Christmas gathering, trying so hard to find their way to that first kiss, and hoping that everyone won’t hate them for it. Hope you like…
She wasn’t going anywhere, ever.
How long would it be until he did that thing in that place again? She extended her jaw and neck, watching him looking at the spot just behind her ear, the inch of skin between it and her hairline. She’d already memorized how the tip of his nose felt, nudging around the area and then the ridge of his upper lip teasing behind it. Then the way his bottom lip chased all those flowery sensations away. And replaced them with hot, warm, sucking pressure.
Oh my God, again. She didn’t know how much longer she could watch the driveway, the cloudy gray sky, Grace’s dress form in the granny flat’s window that was creeping Lily out right now.
This was crazy. Continue Reading
Tonight I’m sitting here in my living room, watching a little Green Bay Packers football before bedtime. My dogs are already snoring loudly, the family kitten already has her eye on the Christmas decorations I’ve got setting out, and the Flores boys, well, they are lounging around in their skivvies, as usual, after a long hard day of work and school. If I took a look at the thermostat, it would read a toasty 70 degrees (welcome to San Diego winter), even at 8 o’clock at night. I should probably get my lazy bones up and go see if anyone has snuck a dirty dish into the sink when I wasn’t looking. But I won’t, because I’m just too darn comfy (and lazy) to move. Plus from my spot, I can smell the cinnamon and pine candles decking the fireplace mantle, even though they’re not lit. Those Glade holiday editions are potent puppies. It’s a perfectly normal evening here at Casa Flores.
Except for one thing…
This author girl is completely touched, humbled, giddy, overwhelmed and downright honored because something I wrote, well, you liked it! A lot! Enough so that you voted it your favorite “Happily Ever After” in this year’s Evernight Readers’ Choice Awards! And not just that, but you also voted Wicked Flower your second favorite Contemporary Romance! If I could, I’d hug each and every one of you. And I’d get Stefan to help because he likes hugging. A lot. ;-)
From the both of us, and the entire Wicked Flower family of characters, we thank you. We thank you, we thank you, we thank you. This means the world. You have made this night spectacular, extraordinary, one of a kind, unforgettable. Mwah!
Happy Monday, friends! I know it’s not technically winter yet, but with holidays, festivities and snow falling on the site, I’m calling this month’s guest spotlights our Wintery Welcomes. I’ve asked everyone stopping by in December to tell us what their characters would most like to find under the tree. And who better to kick things off than the utterly fabulous, sexy, imaginative Doris O’Connor! Sending out warm, cozy wishes to you all and to Doris, thank you so much for visiting today. Now let’s see what you’ve brought us…
Thanks so much for having me on your blog today, Carlene :-)
What would my hero most like under his Christmas tree? Hmm, pre Emilia, Hunter would not have known how to answer that. He doesn’t celebrate Christmas—at all. I’m afraid you’ll have to read the book to find out why.

Welcome back to Mid Week Tease!
I’m in sunny San Diego, California and it’s snowing! On my blog that is, but I’ll take it. To keep in the holiday spirit, this month I’m going to share more short snippets from that winter story I’ve been working on since this summer. As always, a shout out to Sandra Bunino, you rock our socks! Thanks for organizing us each week for the tease. From my WIP, Set for Two, where Anden has just been told he does not have permission to travel and grant one very important Christmas wish…
A grating, chuffing huff tumbled from Samren’s muzzle and Anden knew he was about to be ordered to forget.
No, you will stand down. We don’t travel unless there is sufficient magic calling us. You know the rules. It is too dangerous a risk, even on the call of a selfless. If you were to be stranded between the worlds … Anden, you should think of your family, the young brethren bulls in your charge who still need their training, as I should have done.
At this, Anden did bow.
Samren continued. Have you forgotten the year of your majority is arrived? Samren groaned again, sending more steam to the night sky, illuminating the Valiant cows in the distance.
No, he hadn’t forgotten.
One of them would bare Anden’s first calf. Important. Yes. He knew and would not shuck that duty, no matter how foreign the duty felt to him.
I would send another in your place, Samren communicated to him, but you know that is not the way of the world. Sometimes, wishes go ungranted and it is for a higher cause than any of us, mortal or magical, is meant to understand.
The thought nearly came but Anden closed off his mind, giving him a horrible searing headache. Unacceptable. She was his charge and his alone and he would not abandon her as they’d done to her parents, higher calling or not.
That’s my tease this week!
Now off you go for more tantalizing teases from some outstanding authors!
