A New Audiobook and Giveaway!

Welcome, friends, to the middle of September and to a brand new audio book by one of my favorite authors and human beings, London Saint James! Now, I’ve read a little something of all of London’s flavors. Whether it’s her sweet contemporary or her spicier fantasy and paranormal titles, I am always entertained and most importantly, swept away. Her words are beautifully written and now they’ve been immortalized yet again in the spoken format. Her newest is a Contemporary Erotic Western Romance. And yeah, I can’t wait to get lost in this one too. Have a look and a listen and be sure to enter London’s Rafflecopter giveaway before you leave today. Thank you, friends, and have a FANTASTIC week!

Little Wave in a Big Ocean

“Among my most prized possessions are words that I have never spoken.”

~Orson Scott Card

We all have those times in our lives when we know we have to take a break from some things in order to try and fix others. It’s been a minute since I sat down and wrote a thoughtful blog post. That changes today.

               “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

It is my belief that most of us have heard this at some time in our lives and I can honestly say that I have lived my life by it. Growing up, I heard it nearly every day. What makes a person repeat something like this to a child they are molding into an adult? I can think of a few reasons.

We can use words to create an escape for others, that’s one of the truly wonderful gifts of this world and I’m always aware that it lies right at my fingertips. On the other side of that are the times—and I pray they are less often although I fear they are not—when words are employed not to lift up but to hurt and bring down. As the Kings of Leon say, sometimes words lie at “the tip of your tongue, the top of your lungs.” It is those with the potential for anger and negativity that are best left unsaid.

When I was growing up, my mom was often called names and labeled negatively because of her lifestyle and wardrobe choices. Sure, she was a Single mom with a Red sports car with the personalized plate, “PaperDoll”. She wore Dove shorts, stockings and high heels. She had the Farrah Fawcett hair and spent a lot of time on The Vegas strip. She also Worked all day at the newspaper and danced all night at Caesar’s Palace. I’d look at her and think, “My mom is the blonde Wonder Woman.” Most days I was in awe of her. No matter how tough things got for us, every day, multiple times a day, I heard the words, “I love you, sweetie.” My mom never said a bad word against anyone, mind you, but she got an earful. Did people think her child wasn’t listening too? I heard.

Hooker. Prostitute. Groupie.

My beautiful mom, Las Vegas, circa 1980's.

Three Hot Releases, Three Incredible Women!

Hello out there! Happy Tuesday everyone. I know I’ve been so quiet but I promise you it’s because I’m writing, writing, writing! But today guess what I’m doing? Today I’m CELEBRATING! Back in 2010, I joined the Washington DC Romance Writers group and they are by far the most amazing ladies (and one gentleman, Hi Tim!). Generous, brilliant and warm are the three words I’d use to describe them all. I could go on and on but I’ll just say that it was the first time I’d ever entered somewhere a complete stranger and left with true lifelong friends. And three of those friends have SMOKING HOT romance releases today. So it is my greatest pleasure to share with you…

lynneHot Nights with the Fireman by my critique partner and friend, Lynne Silver! True story: after reading the first draft for this, my first words to Lynne were how the book’s hero, Jason, was one of those who could get away with ANYTHING and I’d still love him. So consider yourselves warned!


Everyone in Washington, DC, knows that when the heat is on, you call Valerie Wainright. This brilliant, brassy PR maven can spin any hot scandal, and she’s never let a client ruffle her feathers. Yet when she agrees to teach DC’s bravest how to handle a media frenzy, she faces an entirely different kind of fire. Keeping things all business and no pleasure is far harder than she expected.

After steamy photos ignite the Internet, firefighter Jason Moore instantly goes from hero to bad boy. While he couldn’t care less about an online rep, he cares a lot about his job and saving lives. If Valerie can help clear his name, he’ll do what she says-even if it means forcing himself to keep his hands off her. But beneath Valerie’s cool cover, Jason feels a smoldering desire that lights his own. And this is one inferno he’ll definitely want to stoke . . .

Book Release Date: July 14, 2015, by Hachette Book Group. CHECK OUT THIS FIERY BOOK HERE! Continue reading
