All Things Being Equal…

What a week! As a proud Iowan, I’d like to point out that now you can get T-Shirts that say “New York: Finally as gay as Iowa!” (Check out RayGun). Twitter was abuzz all week long (well, at least the peeps I follow) with updates on the voting in the New York Senate. I’ll confess I didn’t really expect victory this time around, even though I’d heard it could happen. I’m thrilled to be proven wrong.

Our son, who lives in New York, was headed for bed when he saw the news on FaceBook. He rushed to the nearest subway station and was on the street outside the Stonewall Inn within half an hour of the news, a celebration beyond words. And what a perfect prelude for the NY Pride parade a mere two days later, Sunday the 26th – in fact, a stunning way to celebrate the entire month of June as Pride Month.

Last night I heard one of our local speakers remind us that the battle isn’t over until the other side quits fighting. Here in Iowa, there is constant pressure on legislators to amend the state constitution as a means of reversing the Iowa Supreme Court’s decision affirming marriage equality. And even if the day comes when all fifty states recognize marriage equality, the vast number of federal rights that come with being married will still be unavailable to same sex couples unless there is recognition at that level.

Both halves of Adriana will keep working for that day. Meanwhile, we’ll keep on writing our LGBT characters and giving them the happy endings that anyone in love deserves.

 

Sunday Six ~ The Lady Wants More

The Lady Wants More

Coming from Torquere Wednesday June 15!

BLURB

Janet Baxter keeps her post-divorce life neatly compartmentalized: Secure job, spacious Westchester County home, successful adult children, dependable community volunteer activities. Why is she drawn – for the first time ever – to attend her twenty-year college reunion in New York City?

 

Always a free spirit, Brenda Cassidy is comfortably bisexual and has no plans to ever settle down. But a fling? The reappearance of svelte, reserved Janet Baxter in Brenda’s life is nothing less than a gift, worthy of every enticement Brenda can conjure up. Can Brenda seduce Janet into an endless night of the lovemaking they enjoyed too briefly as college roommates? What if the lady wants more?

 

Here’s a peek at their first encounter – Brenda talks Janet into leaving the reunion and heading to one of their old hangouts where there’s a live band. The beat of the music has just shifted from fast to slow…

 

EXCERPT

Gradually, Brenda’s hands slid down over Janet’s tiny rump. She felt Janet’s thong through the skirt fabric. She was surprised to discover her former lover had chosen such a risqué  undergarment. Brenda closed her eyes and nestled closer as Janet’s hands moved to rest on her rump. Although they never traveled lower, Brenda was thrilled to think Janet wasn’t totally uninterested. She wet her lips and peeked again at the rise of Janet’s breasts.

 

Here’s a link to another (spicer) excerpt and more about the book: The Lady Wants More

 

Six Sentence Sunday

This week’s Sunday Six is from a project close to my heart – To Love and To Cherish, a charity anthology published by LoveYouDivine on Valentine’s Day 2010, all profits donated to Marriage Equality USA . Our lesbian love story is titled “Embracing the Fire.”

 

Blurb

The deep chill of a Vermont winter will require lots of firewood, so canoe and wilderness guide Brandy Latham welcomes the help of her best friend, Stephanie Watkins. Newly settled in the lakeside house where she spent so many summers with her grandparents, Brandy’s ready to think about warmth of a different kind, and she knows just who she wants to share it with.

 

Fresh from her divorce, Stephanie is finally clear what she wants, and it’s Brandy. Has she been reading the signals right? Together the two friends saw, split and stack as they’ve done for many years. Can they dare to claim the fire that now ignites between them?

 

Here’s the start of their magic moment – relaxing after their afternoon’s work, sitting side by side on the floor watching the fire, sipping hot chocolate, noticing their marshmallow mustaches…

 

“I could get a washcloth, I suppose.”

Stephanie didn’t reply nor did she flinch when Brandy darted her tongue out. She couldn’t stifle a moan when Brandy’s tongue slid along her lip, wetting and then lapping at it.

“Better,” Brandy murmured. Her warm breath bounced across Stephanie’s mouth and tickled her nose. “Almost got it.”

Brandy’s eyes sparkled as she slanted her lips across Stephanie’s mouth.
