Synopsis
Savannah Drake would be thrilled about starting her final year of medical school if it weren’t for one thing: she has to spend a month working in the emergency room with cold, aloof Dr. Wesley Kent as her mentor. When her first day in the ER proves to be a humiliating disaster, Savannah is ready to swear off emergency medicine forever. Gradually, though, she finds that the unpredictable, emotional experience of caring for patients in the emergency room is affecting her far differently than she expected – and Dr. Kent turns out to be anything but the arrogant attending physician that she assumed him to be. But just when Savannah finally admits to herself that she is falling for Dr. Kent, she learns that things at the hospital are not all what they seem. Faced with a seemingly impossible choice, Savannah must decide between her future career and everything that she has come to care so much about.

 

 

 

 

 

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #2
I lean back farther on my hands and let my attention drift over to where the other ED attendings are congregated beside the dock. Taller than the others, Doctor Kent is easy to spot. He’s standing beside a canoe with his arms crossed over his chest. He’s wearing a t-shirt, long shorts, and flip-flops, and his dark eyes are hidden behind sunglasses that reflect the water. At the sight of him, there’s a prick of something inside of me—something that says if he wasn’t my attending and didn’t—

Doctor Kent turns toward the dock, snapping me to reality. I immediately look away, praying that he didn’t just catch me staring at him. Refocusing on the lecture, I start listening again to what Dr. Sanders is saying.

Genre: Adult Contemporary Sports Romance

Synopsis
Slapped with court ordered community service for brawling—again, Miller Cassidy, the Indianapolis Panther’s star player, is forced into laboring under stodgy non-profit supervisor, Kate Gallagher. Her saving grace—she happens to be best friends with Stella, the woman he’s been chasing for years.

Despite the masses falling for his charm, Kate doesn’t care for Miller’s notorious reputation or his flippant behavior. But wanting to impress her strict boss, she agrees to a trade that could give them both a shot at success.

Propelled into an unlikely alliance, Miller finds himself taking a defensive stance when he sees beyond Kate’s hard exterior. And Kate is equally thrown off guard when she discovers there’s more to Miller than games.

But is love worth sacrificing friendship? And can Miller let go of the feelings for Stella he’s held onto for years?

In love and basketball, it’s five fouls and you’re out, and every play counts.

 

 

 

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #3
“You’re just a regular kamikaze, eh?”

“What?” Wrinkles pinched above Kate’s brow.

“Self-destructive.” Miller’s hands fanned out like an explosion as his mouth added a matching sound effect. “I didn’t peg you for the type, but you’re willing to go down in flames just to prove you’re right, huh?”

His sister, Reagan, was like that. Stubborn to a fault. Never willing to admit she was wrong, even if she was three miles from the truth.

“From what I hear, you’re pretty familiar with fire, too,” Kate replied.

“I suppose.” Miller ran his right hand through his thick hair.

He was aware that most people were familiar with his reputation, but Miller didn’t like to talk about it. Most of what the general public knew was just perception anyways, not reality.

“You’re welcome for the help, by the way.” Miller wanted to change the focus back to Kate. He got more than enough attention in a day.

“I didn’t need to be rescued,” Kate replied. For a moment she left Miller lagging behind as she made haste for her office.

Calling after her, Miller replied with a knowing chuckle, “The brief interaction I heard says you did.”

“I think we all know your judgement is a little off.”

Kate’s brisk walk picked up speed, but the athlete easily kept pace. He ran sprints for thirty minutes every day for crying out loud. Surely, she didn’t think she’d outrun him? Why was she even trying to do so in the first place? Unless she’d put two and two together and figured out his motive. Even so, Kate couldn’t escape the fate that awaited with a quick canter, so why leave them both winded?

A copy machine zoomed through sheets of paper as they passed by a workroom on the way to Kate’s office. Her face illuminated with the glow of her welcome screen as she slipped into her high back desk chair.

“You know where the call center is.” Kate motioned for the door. “I’ll find you later to discuss details for next week.”

Surely, she didn’t think she was getting off the hook that easily?

“I do.” The player plopped down in the plastic visitor chair settled in front of Kate’s modern, metal desk. Matching silver frames hosted candid pictures of friends, including Stella, and a portrait of a mother and two children. It was interesting, Miller thought, to see Kate smiling in the photographs because she rarely did so in person. At least, she hadn’t in the short bit of time he’d known her.

“You’re free to go now. I mean, you couldn’t wait to start calling, right?” Sarcasm rolled from Kate’s tongue. “That’s what you told Marlene.”

“Apparently lying to her is on trend.” Miller’s arms folded across his chest. “Because it seems you did the same thing yesterday.”

Kate’s cheeks flushed a light shade of pink. “I didn’t have any choice. You heard how she harps on me. I couldn’t tell her that you left just because you felt like it. I’d be one check mark closer to fired.”

“I told you that I’ll gladly help you erase some of those marks,” Miller said. “Or I suppose I could see if she can add a few more. I am pretty good at being bad.”

Kate’s chair squeaked as she leaned forward. “You wouldn’t.”

“You know enough about my reputation to know I would,” Miller said, a wry grin plastered upon his face. “But I won’t have to if you agree to help me win Stella back.”

“I said no.” Kate’s stern eyes met the athlete’s.

“Yes, but that was before,” Miller said. “Before you saw how easily Marlene would believe me over you. Before you realized just how quickly you could lose.”

Kate’s anxious foot flipped her heel off and on.

“You can’t hold me to an impossible task,” Kate replied. “Stella may not want to be won, and then what? You trash my career just because she decides she’s better than you? That’s not fair.”

“I suppose I can’t hold her final decision against you. But if I sense you’re slacking off instead of trying, well—” Miller’s arms took weight as he leaned forward in the seat and propped his upper body across the front of Kate’s desk. “All’s fair.”

Synopsis
A best friends to enemies to lovers romance.

SAM
As the first female lead sportscaster with FNN (Football News Network), I’ve had to be tough and unflappable for years. No matter how far we women have come, football is still a man’s world. Which is why I’ve strutted my stilettos and lipstick on every field and around every TV studio I’ve ever worked, making sure everyone knows just how much of a woman I am. I let no man get under my skin.

Especially not Kade Jennings.

We have a history, Kade and I. It goes all the way back to high school and spans our college years. We used to be best friends, but we haven’t spoken in years. Not since he left without a word, and I made it clear that I never wanted to speak to him again. Now all of a sudden he’s FNN’s newest analyst?

He thinks I’ll break. With every wink he flashes me off-camera and every grope he sneaks under the table, he assumes I’ll shed my badass shell and fall into his arms like old times. Well screw him, his charismatic smile, and his giant di—er—ego. I am where I am today because I’ve never let any man stand in my way.

If Kade even tries, I’ll bring him to his knees.

KADE
Fate can be a real bitch. One minute you think you’re going to get the girl, and the next minute she’s slipping away. It’s a complicated thing, to be in love with your best friend. That friend zone is a tricky place to be, not that I ever entered into it willingly. At least, not with Sam. Fate just seemed to place me there, despite the fight I put up. Well, fate can go screw herself.

Sam Lawrence was always meant to be mine. And it’s finally time that I prove it to her.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
Kade

I wave and laugh when Sam shoots her best friend the finger. Jasmine blows her an air-kiss just before Sam ducks through the door I’m holding open for her.

Then I lose all ability to think, move, or fucking breathe. 

Her entire back is completely bare in that dress. 

Jesus. I’m in so much trouble. 

The only thing I’m going to be able to picture now is bending her over the nearest surface, lifting that dress up, and pounding into her until she screams my name. It wouldn’t take much to get her naked. Just a quick flick of the clasp at the nape of her neck… 

Fuck me. 

I’m breaking out in a sweat, and it’s only been two minutes.

Once we’re seated inside, the car rolls forward, the driver already aware of where we’re heading. 

“Were you so sure that I’d come with you? So cocky that you could show up at my front door in a tux, with a limo waiting, and I’d automatically agree to your plans?” 

“No, but you can’t say I’m not a risk taker.”

“You forgot a red rose to complete the cliché.” She’s talking more to the window than to me, refusing to make eye contact.

“Why would I get you a rose when your favorite flower is a lily?”

Her head snaps around, her lips parting. 

I grunt, somewhat annoyed. “Really, Sam? You think after all the years I’ve known you I would forget your favorite flower? Am I that big of an asshole?”

“No,” she says quietly. “I just didn’t think you’d remember.”

Her forehead creases in thought. If I didn’t know better, I’d say she’s conflicted. Who knows what her brain is saying about me. Hell, I’d probably rather not know. So, I break the monotony. 

“You have to admit, though. Getting to stare at this all night,” I wave down at myself, “is certainly better than going stag.”

Instead of rolling her eyes or making a snide comment like I expect her to, her eyes rake over me from head to toe, narrowing with her inspection. “It’s not your football uniform, but I suppose it’ll do.”

The fuck? 

Sexual innuendo from Sam? That’s the last thing I expected from her tonight. Slamming her door in my face? Sure. Stomping on my foot with her heel? I wouldn’t be surprised. But looking at me with unabashed lust shining in her green eyes? That didn’t even track on my radar. Regardless of the fact that we kissed the other night. 

Her comment reminds me of our night together in college when my football jersey was the only thing she’d been wearing at one point, thus fulfilling one of my longtime Sam fantasies. My dick stiffens into a steel rod at the memory.

Would you look at that? The football jersey still does the trick. 

And I’m going to take advantage of this unexpected opportunity.

“I still have my uniform, you know,” I rasp, my gaze locked on hers. “And I’m sure I can rouse up some pads and pants if that’s what you’re in the mood for.”

She licks her plump lips. No doubt they’d taste like cherries if I were to kiss her, just like they had the other night. I can still recall what that mouth felt like years ago when it was wrapped around my—

For shit’s sake, Jennings. Get ahold of yourself

“I’m not quite sure what I’m in the mood for,” she whispers. “Yet.”

Excerpt #2
“I like the look of this place. It’s very swanky.” The modern design of chrome, white, and black gave it a chic look. “Doesn’t really fit Red River’s norm, but it seems to work.”

“Kind of like your long hair. If you want the norm, you’ll have to see if Bill’s Barbershop has any openings.” Hailey had him lean back, and she turned on the water. It gurgled to life. She stood over him, holding the sprayer in one hand and testing the water temperature with the other. “The earrings aren’t the standard look around here either.” She finally looked him in the eye. “I only remember one earring when we…” She hesitated. “Before you left for L.A.”

“The other earring was an addition once I moved to the West Coast. It was a thing there.”

She stayed rooted in place and didn’t move again.

“What?” He scrunched his brows.

“I saw all the things happening for you as a new face in the music world. The tabloids went crazy over every move you made.” She focused on his hair, went to touch it, then froze. Her fingers lingered a fraction above his head.

“You read about me?” He couldn’t help it. He really couldn’t. He had to ask. Had to know if she’d been thinking about him.

“No.” Her gaze snapped to his.

“Then why is your ringtone one of my old songs?”

She blanched. “That’s one of your songs? I had no idea.”

Bullshit, but whatever.

“I saw the magazine covers while I was standing in the checkout line at the grocery store,” she said.

“So, you read what those covers said about me?” Now he was just teasing her for fun. How could he not? Pink tinged her cheeks, and he wanted to brush his fingers across them to feel the warmth.

“They were a little hard to miss. Every rag in the country put you on the cover for a while.”

“Don’t believe everything you read.” The stupid shit that had been printed about him when he was still with the band, then after he left L.A. and headed back to Red River was so far from the truth that it had been too ridiculous to deserve a response. Which was exactly what he’d told any of the locals who’d been bold enough to ask.

“Interesting that I never heard much about you. You’re one of the few people no one knew much about in this town.” He studied her expression.

Something flashed in her eyes. She didn’t offer any information, so he left it alone.

She pulled her top lip between white teeth. Still hadn’t started washing his hair.

He let one side of his mouth quirk up into a sly smile. “It’s okay to touch it.”

Her pretty eyes turned to saucers. “Wh…what?”

“My hair. You look almost afraid to touch it, but it’ll be a little hard for you to cut it if you don’t.”

The muscles in her slender throat moved as she swallowed. “Oh. Right.” Finally, she dove in, running fingers through his hair and wetting it with the sprayer.

It felt spectacular. Stupendous. Shockingly sensual.

Conspirator. Failure. Murderer.

Seraphina Dovetail is used to being called all these things. As the seventh-born daughter to a witch, and the cause of her mother losing both her powers and her life, Sera has always felt isolated. Until Nikolai Barrington.

The young professor not only took an interest in Sera—he took her into his home, hired her for his moonlighting detective agency, and gave her the one thing she’d always dreamed of: a chance. Under Barrington’s tutelage, Sera can finally take the School of Continuing Magic entrance exam to become an inspector and find her family. Now if only she could stop her growing attraction to her maddening boss—which is about as easy as this fiery elementalist quitting setting things on fire.

But when ghosts start dragging Sera into possessions so deep she can barely escape, and then the souls of lost witches and wizards appear trapped in mirrors, these two opposites will have to work together to uncover a much deeper secret that could destroy the Witchling world…

Synopsis
She has a broken heart and revenge on her mind…

Last year Karrie was riding high. She had a boyfriend she loved, a softball scholarship, and the best roommate a girl could have.  When it turned out her man was a lying, cheating ballsack, she may have gone off the rails a bit.  Now, it’s a new year and Karrie’s ready to build herself back up and move on to bigger and better things.  Still, a little revenge would go a long way in helping the healing process.

He’s got a plan for revenge that will suit them both…

Ridge is used to being the BMOC. Sergeant of Arms of his frat and the ability to land any chick within snapping distance has made life pretty easy for him.  His home life is another story. He and his brothers are in the middle of a battle between his socialite mother and asshole father. Ridge is looking for a stand-in to placate his mother and her matchmaking ways, and he has a feeling he’s just met the girl he can perfectly mold.

This makeover has nothing to do with love and everything to do with Karrie and Ridge using each other to get what they want. What starts as a ruse soon becomes an attraction they cannot deny. When it’s all said and done, they’ll both have more to confess than a need for revenge.

Author Interview:
Q: Are there any secrets from the book, you can share with your readers?

A: I don’t want to ruin it for anyone, but I will suggest to pay attention to Ansel in this one.

Q: Can you share a snippet that isn’t in the blurb or excerpt?

A: “Are you always like this?”

Yon placed her on the bed, took a pillow, and handed it to her. “Keep the foot elevated. And, no, I’m not always like this.”

She held up her hand, hoping he wouldn’t leave her yet. She wanted to understand him better. “And when you say, ‘not always like this,’ do you mean you don’t knock people unconscious a lot?”

His head tilted slightly. “No, I meant I don’t usually come down to the planets I hate just to find a specific female and bring her back safely.”

It took a half-second longer than it should have for her to process that. “You came for me?”

“You shouldn’t have been down here in the first place.”

Yelena didn’t know what to say to that.

“Good thing you didn’t like Lotus Adaamas, because it was the last time you’re going to see it.” Yon was still holding out the pillow. His tone didn’t sound angry, more matter-of-fact. 

She took the pillow and said, “Is it because of my skin? Or because of something else?”

“All of that and more.”

“What else could there be?”

“I will write you a list.”

Q: Does one of the main characters hold a special place in your heart? If so, why?

A: I’ve meet males like the hero before and I’ve always wanted to see him with a happily ever after, but more often than not, he can’t soften enough to be in a relationship.

Q: What do you hope your readers take away from this book?

A: I hope they are interested in the next book, to be honest.

Q: Can you give us some insight into what makes the hero tick?

A: He’s got a chip on his shoulder a thousand miles high, brought on by upbringing

Q: What were the key challenges you faced when writing this book?

A: It was hard to soften the hero enough to make him a character my readers would enjoy instead of hate. I re-wrote this book three times just to get the romance right.

Q: What was the highlight of writing this book?

A: My favorite part of writing is sending 2-3 chapters to my beta reader and getting her thoughts via marco-polo app.

BROKEN PIECES Teaser

Excerpt #3
I slam the door and am surprised to see Brooks when I turn around. I guess the rain kept him from working today. I try to make a quick break for my room, but my name on his lips stops me.

“Raelynn, please.”

I don’t know if the pleading in his voice triggers a flashback of Logan, him pleading whenever I caught him cheating, or if I have so much pent up anger over the last few days, I am ready to let it out. “What?” I practically hiss.

He sighs heavily. “I am sorry about the other night.”

I snort. “Sorry? For what kissing me? Or sorry that I woke up hearing you have sex?”

He takes a step closer to me as I take a step back. “I am sorry that I was an asshole and invited that girl over after I kissed you.”

I laugh loudly. “Yeah, I am sure you are really sorry about that.”

“I am. I was stupid. I was acting out. I was pissed you rejected me.”

I have nothing to say to him, so I turn to leave the room. He grabs my arm to stop me. “What do you want me to say?”

I look down at his grip on my forearm and glance back up at him, anger piercing my eyes. “Don’t fucking touch me.”

He looks down at his hand on my arm and something must click in his mind because he practically jumps away from me. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that. I just don’t know how to get across to you.”

“Let me fill you in on a small detail, Brooks. Fucking some bitch isn’t the best way to get across to me.” I walk closer to him and push his chest. “Telling me you are sorry when I can see in your eyes that you truly aren’t is not a way to get across to me. Grabbing my arm to talk to me is not a way to get across to me.”

I push him again, my body raging. I feel my heartbeat speeding up as my inhibitions drop.

“I am sorry, Blue. Really. I am an idiot. I don’t take rejection well.” He doesn’t fight back against my pushing which pisses me off even more.

“Don’t fucking call me Blue,” I say as I push him closer to the wall. I can feel his heartbeat speeding up under my palms. I can see the way his eyes keep glancing to my lips the angrier I get. My own storm brewing inside of me.

“I didn’t fuck her.”

I roll my eyes. “Really so the ‘harder baby’ and the banging wasn’t fucking?”

“Not in the biblical sense. I couldn’t stop thinking about you, so I kicked her out.”

I push him again. “That’s the biggest load of horseshit.”

“It’s true.”

I contemplate what he’s saying. Honesty in his eyes. I am surprised to find myself believing him.

I go to push him again, but he grabs my wrists as they lay on his chest. “Don’t look at me like that,” he says.

“Like what?” I ask as I too can’t help but glance at his lips.

“Like you want to fucking kiss me.”

“I don’t want to kiss you.” I push against his chest again until he backs into the living room wall.

“Your body sure seems like it.”

“Fuck you,” I spit. His eyes pierce into me just as I grab his neck and pull his lips to mine.

With the help of his ethnically diverse crew, Domino embarks on an epic quest for ultimate power. Though the journey is riddled with dicks, demons, danger, and confusing sexual feelings for one’s best friend, Domino is determined to prove his greatness to the world and to himself.

But to beat the fiercest warrior in the enchanted Republic of Kitaria, there’s really only one power Domino needs to gain: his own sense of self-worth.

Excerpt #2
Selyah banged his fist against the armrest, raising the volume of his voice. “Your ‘prize’ is a twenty-one-year-old fully grown adult who sits in his room all day jerking off, lifting weights, and making his guitar shriek at five in the afternoon.”

The young men responded with blank, slightly frightened stares.

“Starabey!” Selyah yelled, making even the stuffed animal heads on the walls shake.

In a few moments, through the beastly wooden door came in a broad-shouldered, athletically built young man with gray skin. His hair was long, abundant, and frizzy—an electric-blue color so bright it almost looked like a cheap wig. He stared at Domino and his posse with drowsy amber eyes and was adorned with only a pair of thick harem pants.

“Say hello to our guests, Bey,” ordered Selyah.

“I…thought you said I don’t have to do it if I don’t make eye contact,” he replied with an airheaded, puzzled gaze.

Selyah smirked. “You’re moving out. These boys have come to take you with them.”

“Okay, but…uh…” mumbled Starabey, his eyes darting around the room from discomfort. He let out a light sigh and mustered up the courage to look into Selyah’s eyes. “I’m…uh…not one hundred percent sure how sex dungeons work…”

“Ugh!” Domino groaned at the top of his lungs, leaning his head back and pulling down the skin on his cheeks. “We’re just poor!”

“Domino, we’re strippers,” Ken argued, rubbing the side of his head with his fingertips. “We wear even less at work. Why does this bother you so much?”

However, Domino refused to grace him with a reply.

“Jai morghjati noshjiti crnghjo odhjelo jer jai bihti rujghno,” said Sublivion.

Starabey turned to Domino and the rest, his eyebrows cocked up in awe and confusion. “Um…”

“He can understand Kitarian, but he can’t really speak it,” Bowie elaborated.

“Yeah—we mostly just try to guess what he’s saying or ask him to pantomime,” said Domino.

“Jai moghjiti naughjiti…gosphjodar,” Sublivion added, turning to Domino as he spoke.

Starabey stared at the young men and the demon, his expression showing nothing but fear and uncertainty.

“By the way, I’m Domino,” said the blond with a snobbish grin and pushed his ponytail over his shoulder and onto his chest. “Heir to the Enviedhieri family estate, star performer at Cazzo Grande, Buonarroti High School honors graduate, master of the fourth elemental horseman.”

“Ken.” He bowed his ink-haired head, still keeping on a cynical frown. “Seer of bullshit. Prophet of imbecile stunt outcomes.”

The ginger smiled and waved. “I’m Bowie.”

“Oh, yeah, and that’s my elemental horseman,” Domino explained, “Sublivion.”

The demon nodded.

Synopsis
Being an adult has its advantages…

Lucas Abbott and his identical twin grew up sharing everything—including a reputation for funny, idiotic behavior. But now that Lucas is ready to shed that lovable-idiot image, grow up and have a real, adult relationship, the joke’s on him. He and his twin have fallen for the same woman.

Crushed and hoping a few days on the slopes will work out his frustrations, he heads for Stowe, Vermont. All thought of fun and relaxation flies away as a car spins out in a snowstorm, and his firefighter/paramedic training kicks into high gear.

Danielle Rowson is hoping to pick up the pieces and build a new life for herself and her daughter in Vermont. Winding up in a ditch in the middle of a blizzard isn’t part of the plan—and neither is the kind, sexy rescuer whose strong hands pull them to safety.

Lucas has been a little kid, a big kid and now an adult—and he discovers that adulting has more than one advantage. Especially when it comes to sharing with Dani and Savannah the one thing that’s his and his alone: his love. .

As usual, their mom had made pizza from scratch for their birthday—sausage and onion for him and pepperoni and peppers for Landon, along with special orders for the others. Normally, Lucas loved the traditions and the way his mother still paid attention to the details with each of her ten children, even though they were grown and some had kids of their own.

But tonight, with Landon and Amanda seated directly across the table from him, Lucas could barely swallow the delicious pizza or the beer his father had opened for him. He had nothing to say to anyone, which was rare in and of itself. Lucas Abbott always had something to say, especially in the midst of his boisterous family, all of whom had come to celebrate their brothers’ birthday. As the eighth child in a family of ten, one learned to speak up early or be drowned out by the noise.

When everyone was there, they were close to twenty people as his siblings were pairing off, getting married and having babies like wildfire these days. Their elusive, quiet brother Wade had shocked the living shit out of them recently by showing up with a wife none of them had met until after he and Mia had said “I do.” No one had seen that coming, but Wade seemed happier than Lucas had ever seen him. Mia’s long-lost father was throwing them a big wedding in Boston in June that everyone would be going to. Would Landon bring Amanda to that, too?

The noise level in the dining room was probably registering on the Richter scale. Normally, he’d be right in the middle of the fray. Tonight, he had a splitting headache.

Elmer nudged him. “What’s up with you?” Fortunately, his grandfather kept his voice down, so the question wasn’t heard by everyone else.

“Nothing.”

“Not like you to pick at the pizza. You’re more likely to inhale than pick.”

“I’m not that hungry tonight.”

Elmer’s white brows furrowed as he placed a hand on Lucas’s forehead. “You’re not feverish.”

Molly zeroed in on Elmer’s hand on Lucas’s forehead. “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing. The pizza is great, Mom.”

Though she accepted his answer, he could tell by the way his mother looked at him that he hadn’t fooled her.

Per the tradition, she brought out one big cake, half chocolate for him and half vanilla for Landon, and they blew out their candles together. They’d done that twenty-six other times, and it had never once occurred to Lucas that he ought to have his own damned cake as a grown-ass man. Until now.

“Happy birthday, bro,” Landon said, giving him a warm smile.

“Same to you.” Lucas could barely stand to look at the face that was nearly the mirror image of his own. He felt naked without the beard that left almost nothing to distinguish him from his identical twin.

Clearly Amanda preferred Landon to him if the way she giggled at every stupid thing his brother said was any indication.

She’d worn her dark hair up tonight, which only accentuated her pretty green eyes and the smattering of freckles across her nose that he’d found both cute and sexy. He didn’t recall her giggling so much when they went out and was thankful for that. In general, giggling wasn’t something he found overly attractive in a woman.

But damn if he didn’t find the rest of her overly attractive. She was downright gorgeous. He’d thought so from the first time he saw her in the conference room, surrounded by sex toys as she indoctrinated the family on the line of products her company produced.

And no, it hadn’t been the sex toys that had gotten to him. It’d been her. The confident way she spoke about something that most people had trouble talking about in private, let alone in a room full of strangers, had really done it for him. This was a woman who owned her sexuality and her freedom to express it.

That’s where his attraction toward her had started. But it had only flourished during the evening they spent together talking with an ease he didn’t often experience with someone he’d just met.

They’d covered everything from their families to their hometowns to their favorite sports, movies, books, TV shows, and it had been… easy. Fun. He’d immediately wanted to do it again and had thought she felt the same way, but watching her now with Landon, he could see that she had found a connection with him, too. Perhaps a stronger connection than she’d found with Lucas. If that was the case, there was nothing he could do about it. The choice was hers to make, and she’d clearly made it.

He stood, taking his grandfather by surprise. “Where you going, boy?”

“Gotta get home. I’ve got an early morning tomorrow.”

“Where you got to be?” Landon asked.

“I’m covering for Denny.” Lucas referred to one of the paramedics they worked with. “His wife has an ultrasound, and they’re going to find out what they’re having.”

“Oh, cool.”

“You didn’t open your presents,” Molly said.

“I told you guys no presents.”

“When do we ever do what we’re told?” Linc asked.

Lucas took the time to open the gifts from his parents—some new tools for the shop, a sleeping bag to replace the one he’d trashed after the last camping trip, a pair of the cargo shorts he wore in the summer, a book about Lewis and Clark that he’d been meaning to get and a watch with GPS capability.

“Thanks, Mom. I love it all.”

“You’re very welcome.”

He appreciated that she seemed to get that he wanted out of there. But he hoped she knew it wasn’t because he didn’t love the time with his family.

Tomorrow, he would do the shift for Denny during the day, and then he had three days off before his next shift at the firehouse. That was enough time to hit the road and get out of town for a couple of days. If his brother was going to be falling all over Amanda, he didn’t have to stick around for the show.

After he said his goodbyes to the others, his mother met him in the mudroom.

“You really shouldn’t have gotten presents, Mom.”

She shrugged off the statement. “It’s fun for me to find things I think you’d like.”

“Well, thank you. For the gifts, the pizza, the cake. For everything.”

“Are you all right, Luc? You aren’t yourself tonight.”

“I’m all right. Just fighting off a cold.”

“Are you sure that’s all it is?”

“Yep.” The last thing he’d ever do is confess to anyone that he was jealous of his brother. Such a stupid, pointless emotion, and one he’d felt rarely enough to be unfamiliar with how to deal with it. He kissed his mother’s forehead. “I’ve got a few days off, and I’m going to take a run over to Stowe tomorrow.” One of his best friends from Bowdoin College lived there, so no one would question why he was going. They didn’t need to know that he wouldn’t be seeing Craig this time around.

“Supposed to snow tomorrow. Be careful driving.”

“I will. Don’t worry.”

“You know better than to tell me not to worry.”

“I’ll be fine. If there’s one thing your children know how to do, it’s take care of themselves. You saw to that.”

“True. I’m very proud of that.”

“Then don’t worry. I have snow in my DNA.” He hugged her and headed out the door before he had to see Landon and Amanda again. Was he being ridiculous running from them? Yes, and he knew it, but so be it. He didn’t want to deal with it, especially on his freaking birthday.

He got in the truck, started it and cranked the heat, hoping it wouldn’t take long to warm up. It was bloody freezing, as per usual for the last week in March in Vermont, where winter tended to hang on until after the first buds of spring appeared on the trees. Keeping an eye on his parents’ dogs, George and Ringo, who’d followed him outside, he backed out of the driveway and glanced back at the house to see his mom still at the door, watching him go.

Lucas hoped she’d forgive him for leaving the party early, but he’d needed to get out of there before he gave away how he was feeling to the whole family. This was all new territory for him. He wasn’t one to have secrets or things he wanted to keep hidden. What you saw was what you got with Lucas Abbott, and he had no clue how to navigate this situation.

Keeping an eye out for rogue moose, he drove to the family’s Christmas tree farm that was shuttered until spring planting. Normally, he loved the isolation and the serenity of life at the farm, but, like everything else the last few days, it didn’t bring the usual comfort. He was edgy, out of sorts, off his game and feeling lost in a sea of familiar places and people.

His plan to get the hell out of here for a few days was looking better to him with every passing minute. Inside the loft apartment over the barn, he started a load of laundry and pulled a duffel bag with the Butler Volunteer Fire Department logo from under the bed.

He and Landon were both lieutenants in the department, charged with handling most of the administrative work that earned them small salaries. Lucas’s was enough to cover most of his expenses, which were minor thanks to the fact that he didn’t have to pay rent. He got to live at the farm in exchange for keeping an eye on the place in the off-season and acting as the caretaker on behalf of the family business. Between his fire department salary and the sale of the furniture and other wood items he crafted, he eked out a pretty decent living, but his needs were minimal.

Would a woman like Amanda be satisfied with the life that had always more than satisfied him, or would she find it lacking? And since when did he care what anyone else thought of his life?

Since the best first date in history, that’s when.

He had put his laundry in the dryer and opened a beer when the phone rang. Seeing his grandfather’s number on the caller ID, he took the call. “What’s up, Gramps?”

“I was thinking about you on the way home and decided to give you a ring. You weren’t yourself tonight, and I’m wondering if I know why.”

Amused as always by his grandfather, Lucas leaned back against the kitchen counter and smiled. “Knock yourself out.”

“I think you and your brother have set your sights on the same woman, and that’s got you all turned around.”

Lucas knew he shouldn’t be surprised that Elmer had figured out his dilemma.

“Am I warm?”

“Pretty warm.”

“Ah, thought so. It’s a heck of a thing to meet someone who really strikes your fancy. Happened to me once upon a time, and it was the worst feeling in the world.”

Lucas stood up straighter. “When did it happen to you?”

“With your grandmother. I met her when she was dating my cousin.”

“No way.”

“Yes way, and it was awful, I tell you.”

“What did you do?”

“Nothing, and that was the hardest part. I loved my cousin. We were as close as brothers. I never would’ve done anything to hurt him.”

“Since I know how this story ends, I have to know how you ended up together.”

“She told him she fancied me.”

“Whoa! How did he take that?”

“Punched me in the mouth,” Elmer said with a low guffaw. “That’s how I knew she’d picked me.”

“Wow, Gramps. I had no idea.”

“We didn’t talk about it much after the fact. I remained close to my cousin until the day he died, and I went out of my way to make sure there was never any bad blood between us.”

“Did he ever get married?”

“Yep. Married a great gal a couple years later, and the four of us ran around together for the rest of his life.”

“I’m glad he ended up happy, too.”

“Believe me—so was I. Second-happiest day of my young life was standing up for him at his wedding.” After a pause, Elmer said, “You never really know what people go through before they end up with a happily ever after, son. It’s not always rainbows and unicorns or straight lines that lead from point A to point B. A lot of times, it’s hard and messy and painful.”

“Yeah,” Lucas said, marveling at how Elmer had homed right in on everything Lucas was feeling.

“But the most important thing is family. Your brother is your closest friend, your soul mate, if you believe in such things. The two of you have been like two peas in a pod from the word go. I’d hate to see anything come between you.”

“Me, too.”

“Then don’t let it, Luc. Amanda seems like a nice gal with a good head on her shoulders. If she’s taken a shine to Landon, well, then, there’s nothing you can really do about that. But being angry with him over it isn’t going to make it better for you. It’ll only make everything worse.”

Elmer was right. Of course he was. He was always right. “Very true.”

“I’m glad you agree. Amanda is only here for a short time. Brothers are forever.”

“Especially identical twin brothers.”

Elmer laughed. “Especially that. You okay, pal?”

“Yeah, Gramps, I’m good. This helped a lot. I’m going up to Stowe for a couple of days to ski and clear my head.”

“That’s a great idea. Have a wonderful time.”

“Thanks for calling.”

“Happy birthday, Lucas. I think this is going to be your best year yet.”

“I hope so.”

“Love you, son.”

“Love you, too, Gramps.”

Lucas put down the phone, feeling thankful for the unconditional love of his grandfather, who had always been a steady presence in his life. Elmer had made an excellent point. It would be foolish to allow a woman he barely knew to come between him and the twin brother who was also his closest friend. He wasn’t going to let that happen and would use the time away to get his head back on straight.

Amanda was a great person, and he really liked her. However, she certainly wasn’t the only woman in the world. If she had decided Landon was the one for her, Lucas would find someone else. Stepping aside was the right thing to do. He had no doubt about that after talking to his grandfather.

He couldn’t believe the story Elmer had told him about the early days of his relationship with Lucas’s grandmother. He’d never thought too much about how his grandparents might’ve gotten together, but he hadn’t pictured anything like the story Elmer had relayed.

The next day, after putting in a ten-hour shift at the firehouse that had included calls to a couple of snow-related fender benders and one elderly resident who’d needed transport to the hospital, Lucas set out for Stowe. Normally a ninety-minute drive, tonight it was slow going due to the snow that continued to fall. Lucas took his time, keeping the speedometer around forty and following in the tracks left by an eighteen-wheeler that was a mile or so ahead of him.

Driving in snow was second nature to him after growing up in northern Vermont. If Vermonters stayed home every time it snowed, they’d go weeks without leaving the house some years.

He’d called his friend Craig, who’d told him to use the house while he was out of town on business. Lucas had the security code to the house and was eager for some time alone on the slopes. Physical activity always helped to clear his mind, and he hoped it would have the usual effect on him this time.

He hated being out of sorts like this and needed to shake it off and get back to normal. Moping around wasn’t his style. At the peak of ski season in Stowe, he could also count on some good nightlife. Perhaps a night with a snow bunny would fix what ailed him. One thing he knew for certain was that getting out of Butler had already made him feel better than he had in days.

Two hours into the ride, he was yawning and guzzling the coffee he’d brewed at the firehouse to keep himself awake. His eyes were tired from staring into the snow that had seemed to intensify as he got closer to Stowe. Finally, he took the exit onto the local road that led to Craig’s place and found that it hadn’t been plowed.

“Awesome…”

He slowed the truck to a crawl, inching along while hoping he was still on the actual road. As he rounded a bend, he watched with horror as the car in front of him fishtailed wildly before pitching off an embankment into a ditch.

“A baby is God’s opinion that life should go on.” —Carl Sandburg

IT'S A GHOST'S LIFE Teaser

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
Vera used her phone way more than Grandma Burke. She had social media accounts where she followed fashion and Old Hollywood accounts. She had TMZ. Rent the Runway. Images of sexy men reading books. She had a reading app with hundreds of books on it, from classics to romance novels to modern literature like The Kite Runner.

Her texts were from her friends and her niece, Eva. A man I assumed was her nephew. A couple of guys who were clearly flirting with her. I scrolled through the thread with the man named “Colin” and let out a startled yelp. Right there in their conversation going back and forth, was a dick pic. “Dang, Vera.” I quickly scrolled past it, then out of pure curiosity went back because it didn’t look like a selfie from a ninety-year-old man.

They say that men don’t age there the way they do elsewhere but even so… the thighs appeared to be a man in his prime. I suddenly felt like a naughty schoolgirl. Vera might be a cougar, and that was all well and good, but I had a boyfriend.

“Moving on, Bailey.” I closed that thread a heartbeat after I should have, and felt guilty as all get-out for that.

Then I found a thread with a man named Stanley.

It appeared he had come into town and had made plans to see her Friday night.

So lovely to see you again, she’d written at midnight on Friday.

Interesting. I wonder if he had any clue she had passed away?

I needed to call him and ask some questions but I needed to work up the courage to do that.

Dashing back downstairs I snagged a crystal flute from her dining room hutch, and using a towel from the kitchen, opened the champagne. I took the bottle and the glass upstairs and poured in Vera’s bedroom.

“To you, Vera,” I said, glancing around her inner sanctuary. “You were a cool chick who lived life to the fullest. May you rest in peace, dahlin’.”

I half-expected her to answer me. Maybe I was hoping she would. But the room remained silent. Vera had a record player on an etagere in the corner and I opened it to see what record was on it. Glenn Miller. I turned it on, not wanting to snoop in silence.

Sipping champagne, I went through Vera’s closet, drooling over the vintage pieces nestled up against the modern designers. Nothing was cheap. There were classic, timeless pieces, then funky and fun accessories. She had mastered the art of dressing in well-made basics, then adding shoes, jewelry, a turban, or a funky shawl to change up her look.

Her shoes were to die for.

I gave a laugh of horror in the closet at that thought. To die for. Yikes.

There were drawers lined with felt that had a drool-worthy collection of brooches, bracelets, rings, and necklaces. She even had hairpins that I suspected were from the 1930s. I did notice what looked like some odd empty spots in a few drawers and I wondered how closely Pam had inspected the collection. Or if Pam had swiped a few items on her way out.

There were four stacks of hat boxes, which was glorious.

Beside them were photo boxes. Inside I found newspaper clippings from seventy-five years earlier.

Miss Vera Rosenbaum, 21, model with the House of Chanel, is engaged to legendary film star, Frank Torro, 37. Nuptials to be held at the private home of Humphrey Bogart in a simple ceremony, in accordance with wartime sacrifice.

There was an engagement photo where Vera looked way older than she actually was at the time. Dressed in a suit with shoulder pads, she looked glamourous as hell. Her lips were dark, eyebrows dramatic, hair perfectly curled. Her fiancé was what I would call dapper but not particularly handsome. He was glancing affectionately down at her. On the other hand, she was staring boldly into the camera, sensual and full of life.

“Age is a funny thing, Vera, isn’t it?” I said out loud in the closet, draining my glass.  

The box was full of old photos. Wedding photos of Vera at different ages. Photo shoots. A three-legged race on the lawn of a mansion, palm trees in the background. Runners laughing as they held on to each other.

Man, I was having a melancholy day.

There were love letters in the box too. Passionate notes from Vera’s third husband, things like “Even on the darkest day, you are the sun that warms my soul.”

Now it’s all text messages.

I would fall over if Marner wrote me a note.

There was also a nasty note from a woman that Vera had kept, which I found fascinating.

It was a woman named June calling Vera a homewrecking whore.

“Why would you save this?” I murmured.

And was June still alive? Had she gotten her final revenge on Vera? That seemed unlikely. She was probably ninety herself.

The record playing cut off suddenly.

I jumped, dropping the letter from angry June.

My heart started racing.

It didn’t sound like the record had ended on its own. It had cut off mid-song.

Could Vera do that?

Then I realized I heard footsteps.

Shoot.

Crawling on my belly, I reached the closet door and tried to ease it closed so as not to alert the intruder.

It was too late. I was on my stomach, staring at Italian loafers.

In the third novel in the LONG LIVE DEAD RECKLESS series, Talor must find a way to remember what everyone wants her to forget…or lose herself forever.

As a Grigori Princess, Talor has everything most women could ever want: love, eternal beauty, wealth, and power. Supernatural servants bend to her every will and no material desire is denied her, but that rose-colored reality begins to crack when she hears a mysterious voice speaking through music.

After a violent encounter with a sinister figure in the countryside, her husband Rami turns cold and possessive, blaming her for the growing storm between the Grigori and the Dissent. Confused and heartbroken, Talor soon becomes less like a princess and more like a prisoner in her own home.

But as the list of enemies seeking to abduct her from the Valley grows, she begins to wonder what it is they know that she doesn’t. When she is faced with an unthinkable choice, she must be braver than she ever thought possible if she is to discover the shocking truth that will change everything.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
After a long moment gazing up at the stars together, I gave a wistful sigh.

“I’ve decided on a name for our son, Rami.”

“I am ready to hear it.”

I closed my eyes and took a deep breath before smiling. It was the perfect name. It just felt right.

“Sage.”

Rami went rigid behind me. It wasn’t the reaction I had expected at all, so I opened my eyes to look back at him. His mouth dropped open a little as he eased away from me, moving to the other side of the boat like he wanted to jump in the water just to get away. I could see the tension rising in his face, but I couldn’t figure out why.

He muttered Yahweh-Elata under his breath. He had scrambled across the boat to get away from me and now he wasn’t even going to speak in a language I could understand?

“Rami,” I said, trying to bring him back to me, to us.

As I watched him wrestle with something in explosive silence, I rewound the moment in my mind to be sure I hadn’t said something other than what I did. But no – I’d only said the name I liked, the name that felt right to give my firstborn son.

Sage was a good name. Sure, it was technically an herb, but I liked it. I couldn’t understand why he would have such a strong reaction. Rami brushed his dark hair across his forehead and dragged his hand across his face, heaving a sigh. His eyes were burning, glancing wildly as they looked about.

“Rami, sweetheart, what’s wrong? Are you all right?”

He blinked at my voice, seeming to remember me all of a sudden as he came out of his deep thoughts. His elbows dropped onto his knees then, his hands limp. His brow furrowed as he set a burning stare my way.

“Why that name?” he asked.

It was supposed to be a question but it sounded more like an accusation. I shook my head as I grabbed onto the side of the boat for support.

“I…I honestly don’t know. I just thought of it. Isn’t that how it works? Is it – do you not like it? I can come up with another, Rami. Please don’t be upset about a name.”

The way he studied my face for a long moment gave me a sickening feeling that I’d done something horrible without knowing it.

“A name,” he whispered.

He took his insignia necklace into his palm and it glowed enough to cast light. It meant he was calling one of his sons from afar, but I didn’t dare ask why. Without a word, he extended his arm towards the shore and the boat lurched for the dock. A dozen Loyalists were already on one knee there, waiting. Levi was among them. Rami leapt out of the boat and offered a hand to me. I took it and stumbled out, not nearly as graceful as he had been.

Sensing my nerves, he clutched my hand tight into the crook of his elbow and strode a good ten feet away from the Loyalists before stopping.

“Please tell me what’s happening,” I said, touching his chest.

His expression was wary as he took my face in his hands and kissed me long on the lips. I wished he would just keep kissing me and let me choose a different name, but instead he took one more forlorn look before abruptly leaving with most of them. I thought Levi would stay, but he wasn’t one of the two who did.

I stood on the riverbank dumbfounded in the light of a thousand stars, wondering why Rami never answered me. Every star was an eye bearing down, and they all seemed to be asking the same thing: what was wrong with the name Sage?
