We’ll do our best to tease, titillate and tantalize you into the weekend.
My mid week tease this week is from the next Sin Pointe Novel, Sin’s Haven, which is coming soon! The cover is still in the works but here’s an early sketch I did of my favorite webmaster when he was first coming to mind. One of the things I love about a Benny-type hero is their humility and vulnerability. Here he is with Trista from Sidewalk Flower, prepping for what could be the best night of his life…or the worst.

“Trista, my hair is less likely to cooperate than yours,” Benny reminded her and poked a finger into her giant messy bun, hoping to get the glare off her face. She tugged at a stray piece one more time and softened.
“Does it look that bad?” he asked. “I want to look good.”
“Sweetie, you’re handsome as can be. But just remember the right girl wouldn’t care about that. She’d see the amazing man you are inside, from the moment she laid eyes on you. Okay, that’s all I’m going to say about it.” Trista zipped her lips then slid the invisible key into her dress pocket.
Whatever impressed women, that’s what he needed to ooze tonight. He considered shoving a pair of socks down his pants but they were already uncomfortably tight. Anyway, Ben knew size wasn’t his problem. How many times had Stefan teased he was going to hurt some poor girl whenever one finally gave him the chance? Stefan meant well but could be pretty vulgar. Benny was the exact opposite which is why he’d kept his past sexual experiences to himself.
