Ted, meet Kara — Take Two #MFRWHooks

Welcome to Book Hooks, where the amazing authors of MFRW entice you with snippets we hope will hook you into wanting more! Click on the links at the end to travel to the other hop participants.

TheHeist_MEDThe first time they met, Kara crashed into Ted straight on as she was leaving his boss’s office. Maybe he’ll get a second chance…


Ted Springs scanned the small crowd waiting to greet passengers over the heads of others disembarking in front of him. He spotted her immediately. She stood at the edge of the crowd and gave a tentative wave when she recognized him. He nodded in return, trying to be patient with the older ladies ahead of him and a family with two young children.

Wearing a simple pink dress that buttoned down the front and fell nearly to the knees, Kara Daniels looked both professional and sexy. Tossing dark hair over her shoulder, she looked much more collected than when he’d last seen her, but then this was not a surprise meeting.

His chest tightened as he neared her.


A heist? A murder? It’s villain’s choice.

A special-order art theft? Tedious, but seamless – until small town museum director Kara Daniels calls in the experts. Furious her favorite trio of priceless impressionist paintings has been stolen from its traveling exhibit on her watch, Kara is determined to save not only the paintings, but her future in the art world. She’ll stop at nothing to entrap the thief.

Ted Springs knows the underbelly of the criminal world a little closer than he might like—but he’s turned it to good advantage, first as a police officer, and now as detective for the Upper Midwest Arts Council. His job? To guarantee the security of the valuable paintings in the Council’s traveling exhibits.

Heat sizzles when Ted and Kara collide—can they work together, before it’s too late?


Five stars at Goodreads: “The sex is hot and I loved the phone sex scenes. Never did I expect the ending. It was brilliant. The Heist is a winner!” Sheila G.

Five stars at Amazon: “From the start, the perspective of Kara, the museum’s director and the thieves are cleverly interwoven… rich in detail… held my interest and kept me reading forward.” Gaele “Very hot…engaging, entertaining, funny and serious, well written and extremely enjoyable to read.” Donna H.

Hooked on Delites! #MFRWHooks

What do you wear to a clothing optional resort? You’d be surprised…

epicureandelites_200Swingers Bret and Jen Andrews are getting ready for a decadent week at the tropical swing lifestyle paradise, Epicurean Delites. They’ve just been shopping, and now they’re modeling Jen’s purchases for their best friends.


Epicurean Delites

Swinging Games, Book 13

Four Flames: Multiple partners, ménage, explicit sex f/m, f/f/m, f/m/f, four-way, toys, anal sex, light bdsm


In a matter of minutes, Jen reappeared in what first looked like a black long evening gown. Then she turned slowly around. The left side had a slit to her waist, making it clear she was naked underneath. Brett wasn’t sure of the material, but the top was see-through. He wet his lips, watching his wife’s nipples trying to find their way out through the sheer material.

“This is for the Saturday night theme night, Black on White,” Jen announced, spinning slowly about once more. “As you can see, I am in black. Brett will wear a white sport coat and black pants.”

“You guys,” Ryan said with a trace of awe in his voice, “are going to be the talk of the ball.”

“No doubt,” Donna added. “And there won’t be any difficulty getting you out of that dress.”

“How am I going to be able to dance with you wearing that?” Brett said. “I’m going to have a boner that will embarrass both of us.”

“Not me,” Jen said, grinning broadly. “The question is, together will we attract some players?”


Palm trees swaying in the breeze, curtained beds beside the swimming pool, a floating bar—Jen and Brett can hardly believe the decadence they get to share for a week with Carl, Alice, and Sarah at the swing lifestyle resort, Epicurean Delites. Sometimes life is too short.


Goodreads, 5 stars: hot and erotic with m/m, m/m/f, f/f, m/f/m/f and m/f couplings. What I liked best though was that these couples were older couples. Sheila G

Amazon, 5 stars: An Incredible place. Whew, what a fun and hot story! Well written and incredibly erotic. Tracey P.





That First Kiss… #MFRWHooks

Do you remember that first kiss with the love of your life? Traci will never forget this one, something she never thought would happen to her.


Traci tried to breathe. His mustache was so soft it felt like a hundred feathers tickling her upper lip. She wanted more of him, but he maintained a glacial pace. She stood on her toes, but he only nibbled. And then she felt him pull her close. His mouth was on hers. She opened her mouth greedily. His tongue entered without further invitation. She’d never been kissed so thoroughly. Reciprocating, Traci wet his mustache with her tongue. And then she bruised his lips with her own. Since when had she become the aggressor?


Threatened race horses, city slicker attorney, sexy California wrangler—what can possibly go wrong?

Hot-shot Chicago prosecuting attorney Traci Steele works tirelessly keeping rapists off the street to prevent other women from suffering the hell she’s endured, so she resists her friends’ insistence that she take a two month R&R in their California Live Oak condo—until they persuade her to help their rancher friend as a private investigator.

Though he runs the stables at Live Oak, well-muscled mustached wrangler Scott McCord much prefers working with the race horses he trains at his ranch, and he can’t believe his old friends have sent a greenhorn female to help him with horse troubles.

The improbable dance between this mismatched pair barely fits in around the escalating suspense of whoever’s after Scott’s horses. Traci is as tenacious in her sleuthing as she is terrified about her inability to ever love a man. Can Scott succeed in gentling her – like he does his horses – before she flees in panic?


Top Pick at Night Owl: “Add into this touching story of recovery a mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end, and you’ve got a story you won’t be able to put down.” (Angi)

Five Stars at Amazon: “Riveting mystery and love story in one great book.” (Donna H) “A Great story that shows that love can heal anything!” (Amy B.)

Five Stars at Goodreads “This is a mature couple who have handled difficult situations in the past but have learned from them and do not give up what is important without a fight and serious soul-searching… I will miss this series and these characters.” (Sheila G)
