Here are the opening lines of our romantic suspense The Painter is a Lady:

EXCERPT

Prologue

Pulling her flannel nightgown tighter around her frame, Brenda Tower stared out her bedroom window at Lake Superior in the gray distance. The waves must be twenty or thirty feet high for her to see them through the dawn haze. Had the late November storm awakened her? And why did she have such a feeling of dread? She’d always loved the lake – swimming, fishing, picnicking and playing on calm sunny days, and thrilling to its power when she watched it storm.

A fragment of her dream flashed before her eyes, sending a chill down her spine. Startled, she grasped for more detail, but it remained just out of reach, though filled with foreboding.

Lake, fishing boat, too many people, shouting, gunshots.

Must have been reading too many thrillers.

Secrets. Trust. Courage. Who will knuckle under first—the war hero? The spirited single mom? Or the former high school bully who still hates them both?

BLURB

When war hero Michael Jarvis returns to Ashland, Wisconsin, he doesn’t plan to stay—he’s undercover, investigating a possible sex trafficking ring on the Great Lakes. But he does want to sample the pesky girl next door he always turned down—and it wouldn’t hurt if she’d clear up a few mysteries of her own.

Successfully established as an interior house painter, Brenda Tower finally has her act together as a single mom—but it hangs by a thread, a secret she’ll guard with her life. The return of her youthful crush Michael Jarvis threatens to unravel everything.

Jealousy has inflamed Brett Hill’s hatred of Michael and Brenda for as long as he can remember. Revenge will be so sweet.

When the secrets break open, can Michael and Brenda find the courage to trust each other, or will revenge and betrayal triumph?

BLURB

April Day deeply loves her husband, Derek, but something’s missing. To heat things up, she books them on a Caribbean cruise for their seventh anniversary. She’s not sure what she’s looking for, but she knows she’s found it as soon as she spots the delectable sprite of an actress who stars in the ship’s daily shows.

Meghan Keenan’s having a blast with her latest squeeze, Clark Hendricks, who writes and directs the shipboard main shows. Should she turn down April’s request to heat up her marriage? And if she accepts, where will Clark fit in?

Derek is stunned by his wife’s brash pursuit of the hot young actress. Must he match her boldness to keep her from leaving him?

 

EXCERPT

Derek reached for his coffee cup and hesitated. “And I’m supposed to believe this seven-year itch thing will be worked through on this cruise. No roving eyes when we get back to Chicago?”

April shook her head. “Hopefully I’ll have a re-energized husband by then.”

“I’m not the energizer bunny,” Derek said, looking glum and resigned.

“I’ve noticed. Come on, this is about both of us. Let’s enjoy our cruise. There was a time when you couldn’t get enough of me. Wouldn’t you like to have those days back?”

Looking trapped, Derek nodded. “Yeah, you’re right. I would, but this doesn’t seem like the way to do that.”

“I think it is.” April swallowed. “This isn’t just about you, Derek. I have to find my spark again. We’ve both allowed the sex part of our marriage to fizzle. I no longer believe you and I can find it on our own. I think another woman can help us both—at least, the right woman.”

“And you think Meg the actress is that woman?”

“She’s worth a shot. You know I’m not threatening divorce. But I’m not willing to give up on our sex lives just because I’m about to turn thirty, either. I don’t expect to ever have to give up on sex, but that means we have to do some things to give it some new life.”

“You read too many romance novels.”

“Maybe.” She dragged a fingernail along his wrist. “But I’m not ready to give up on us. Now I’m going over there and introducing myself.”

His eyebrows shot up.

“You can watch, if that suits you better.”

EXCERPT

Set Up: Meg has agreed to April’s proposal to help put some sizzle back in her marriage. Now Meg and her current main squeeze, Clark, are seated around a table in a dark corner of a shipboard lounge with April and her husband, Derek. Meg’s already sneaked her hand under April’s short skirt…

“Does your wife come noisily in public places?” Meg asked.

Derek shook his head.

“No, she doesn’t make noise?”

“No, she doesn’t come in public places.”

Meg’s laughter was high-pitched. “You think. From the feel of her panties, I’d say she’s already creaming. Aren’t you, April?”

April nodded. She felt her eyes go wide as Meg’s fingers wiggled against her bikini-clad mound.

“Do you think we should put her to the test?” Meg asked Derek.

He shook his head. “What I think doesn’t seem to matter.”

Meg shrugged. “It’s your call, girl.”

April chewed on her bottom lip and eased Meg’s finger under her panties.

Meg lifted her glass with her other hand and toasted her drinking partners. “I believe we’ll have an answer soon enough. Your wife is dragging my fingers along her very wet, slick vulva. I’m not doing a thing, but your wife is fucking herself with my fingers.”

April breathed through her nose as she tried to rock discreetly against the finger Meg had inserted in her pussy. “Help me,” she whispered at Meg.

“Your wife wants my help. Can you believe that?” Without looking at April, Meg dragged a finger across April’s clit. On the third pass, April lurched forward and hunched over the table. She gasped for air. Meg withdrew her fingers.

“May I help you?” their waiter asked. “Are you seasick?”

April tried to focus on the concerned man. “No,” she managed to say. “I’m fine. I must’ve swallowed my drink wrong.”

“That happens. Would anyone like anything else?”

Meg looked around the table and then shook her head. “I think we’ve all had enough for one night.” After the waiter left, she said to Derek, “You’re right. She doesn’t make any noise in public, but she nearly had a stroke trying not to. Maybe we’ll have to work on that.”
