EXCERPT

Set up: Today’s excerpt immediately follows last week’s, “You know we’re going to have to talk about your boy…”

“You can’t say no forever. You owe me.” Michael scraped a finger pad along Brenda’s nose. “I do believe if you’d ever succeeded in getting me in your bed, I would remember it.”

“You know you didn’t―I didn’t”―she scowled―“we didn’t.”

He laughed and backed away. “Well, at least that confirms I don’t have early onset Alzheimer’s. So you’ll join me for a beer after work?”

“Why can’t we just talk here?”

“Because I may want to claim squatter’s rights.”

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?

“You can join us if you want…” #MFRWAuthor #Menage #EroticRomance

Welcome to MidWeek Tease, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend. A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop every week!

Meghan’s Playhouse, Book 3, is now available at
Amazon.comKobo,  and Extasy Books.

Today’s our last taste of April Swings for a while – next week we’ll turn to our erotic Christmas stories!

EXCERPT

Set-up: Derek has just returned to his and April’s suite after a solitary lunch and a couple beers…

Derek strolled into the sitting area and plopped down on the couch. He flipped on a lamp and picked up a magazine when a noise from the bed alerted him that he was not alone.
He blinked, adjusting his eyes to the dim light and to the surreal scene. Two masked women knelt on the bed facing each other with their heads turned toward him. The gauzy curtain separated them from him, but he could tell that one was a blonde and the other had auburn hair. They wore equally transparent gowns. He stared hard but couldn’t decide whether they were actually wearing masks or if they’d painted their faces. Each woman thrust her tongue out at him as if beckoning him to join them.
Derek sat rigidly on the couch. He wasn’t about to join this game. He wet his lips. Had his body been planted in cement? He couldn’t move a muscle to leave.
“Glad you got back in time for the main act.”
Derek swallowed hard at Meg’s taunt. They were hardly trying to conceal their identities. Had they actually waited for him? Maybe the actress could only perform in front of an audience.
“You can join us if you want,” April said.

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?

EXCERPT

Brenda bent over to pick up her sprayer, and Michael had everything he could do not to reach out and clamp his hands around her tight butt. She’d tempted him so many times, but he didn’t think she was intentionally provoking him this time.

Yet she was in his blood. No way could he tell her she was one of the reasons he’d accepted the Ashland assignment. It was memories of her that had kept him going, that had kept him alive in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He placed a hand on her shoulder and gently turned her to face him.

She didn’t resist.

He watched her chew on her lower lip—she wasn’t much calmer about their initial meeting than he’d been. “We’re going to have to talk about your boy.”

Her shoulders slumped.
