Should she read more? #sundaysnippet #MFRWauthor #Giveaway #sunday8 #wewriwa

This month we’re giving away one autographed print copy of The Diary. The giveaway lasts all month – contest details after our Sunday Snippet.

Be sure to visit Weekend Writing Warriors to check out the rest of today’s exciting excerpts!

The Diary is actually two books in one – The Diary, and its sequel, Writing Skin. Today’s excerpt follows last week’s, after Kate sneaked a peek into her sister’s diary when she stopped by to water her plants…

EXCERPT

Kate slumped down at her sister’s desk.  Should she read more?  She’d simply dipped into the diary like so many folks casually stabbed at a verse in the Bible.  Kate scowled and rested her chin on her knuckles.  An alarm bell began ringing in the corner of her brain.

Professor?  What professor?  Luci was a college junior, an English major.  Would she ever graduate?  She worked nearly full-time at a trendy Near-North boutique and took college classes around her work schedule. 

But a professor screwing a student—wasn’t that against some rule?  Weren’t there ethics governing faculty-student relations?  At least such behavior must be frowned upon.  How had Luci gotten herself mixed up with a professor?  Who was he?  And what was he trying to get from her sister—other than her body?

A rakish professor, a flaming redhead, her petite younger sister, and the redhead’s bi Italian girlfriend in a blistering transcontinental tale of revenge gone awry.

BLURB

Lust, revenge, dark sexual escapades and the mysterious disappearance of her younger half sister, Luci, will take art curator Kate Noble on a whirlwind transcontinental journey. The diary Luci’s left behind paints vivid images of shameless erotic exploits with a rake named only as G.C.  

Can Kate learn enough under the delightful hands of her bisexual best friend, Gina, to ensnare the sensual and elusive Professor Grayson Cosgrove into a marriage proposal of her making? Can she find Luci before it’s too late? If only she could read between the lines.

The Diary ~ never have the secrets of another been so electrifying!

No second thoughts? #MFRWHooks #MFRWAuthor #Suspense

Welcome to Book Hooks, a Wednesday offering by members of Marketing For Romance Writers to share a little taste of our work and entice you into wanting more! Click on the links at the end to travel to other Book Hook posts, and enjoy!

We’re thrilled to announce Extasy Books has re-released our erotic romantic suspense, The Merry Widow. Thoroughly revised and edited, this is the steamy story of a mid-life widow’s sexual awakening. Following a prologue to set the stage, it opens with an erotic scene between two women – the first ever in our heroine’s life. If this isn’t your cup of tea, no problem – you might prefer our Romantic Suspense books, all of which deliver one man, one woman, hot sex, and perilous danger.

But if this appeals to you – hang on for the ride! Recently widowed and in her early forties, Merry Delany is about to plunge into a self-discovery journey that takes her places she’s never imagined, much less hoped for. Once passion is unleashed, can it be stopped?

Today’s excerpt comes shortly after last week’s, in which Jim has noticed the butterfly figurine and asked Merry what she’s transforming into.

EXCERPT

“Sometimes you use words. And other times you’re silent, but your entire body is screaming. It’s a real turn-on for a guy to be with an expressive woman.”

“Well, I hope so, since you happen to be in bed at the moment with an expressive woman. I noticed you weren’t exactly the silent type in the throes of lovemaking either.”

“Yeah.” He downed more coffee. “That’s the way it is. No second thoughts?”

“What’s there to think about?”

“Coy doesn’t befit you this morning, Merry. When you came in with the coffee, you weren’t exactly a carefree spirit. You don’t know what to do with me. And you’re wondering what I’m expecting of you.”

“Having a guy sleep over and making love with him countless times does tend to complicate things.”

BLURB

The millennium arrived with such promise—will it deliver for recently widowed Merry Delaney?

So much for all the anticipation about the new millennium. Merry Delaney’s life is still in a rut and shows no signs of changing. Sex? A fading memory, gone long before her husband actually died. Excitement? Hardly the hallmark of an accountant’s life. At forty-two, what can she look forward to?

Until her best friend takes Merry’s predicament into her practiced hands. One passionate kiss unleashes possibilities Merry never dreamed of—and she wants to sample them all. Men? Women? Young? Old? Ménage? Toys? Yes, to all, to pleasure, to making up for lost time.

Enter Chicago Detective Jim Barnes, who solicits Merry’s help with a mob funds-skimming case. Can the scorching passion that soon smolders between Merry and Jim survive the escalating mob threats of exposure? Having discovered a zest for sex, will Merry ever again be satisfied with one man?

Luci’s body was hard not to envy… #sundaysnippet #MFRWauthor #Giveaway #sunday8 #wewriwa

EXCERPT

Glancing at a recent photo on Luci’s desk of the two of them standing side by side, Kate winced.  Could different fathers account for that much variation?  Luci’s petite, tight, twenty-four-year-old body was hard not to envy. 

In contrast, Kate was above average height, fairly well proportioned, but full-bodied.  Tight bodies were for the youthful.  She tried to work out and occasionally followed a routine for five or six weeks, but it was so easy to forget to jog, or go to the gym, or do isometrics, or do whatever her most recent exercise cure-all happened to be. 

Luci’s appetite rivaled a bird’s while hers rivaled a—well, she didn’t want to think about that.  Still, she was proud that she’d been able to control her weight without feeling too flabby.

Kate brushed a finger across the words: The Diary.  Apparently her sister was much more versed in matters of sex than she was.

A rakish professor, a flaming redhead, her petite younger sister, and the redhead’s bi Italian girlfriend in a blistering transcontinental tale of revenge gone awry.
