It was released in June and contains several hot office romances. Also, Evernight is holding a end of summer sale, click on the sale pic below to jump over to their site.

THIS SNIPPET: Mary and Colin have moved past her interview and right into temptation. Enjoy!

She twirled her hair around her fingers. “I should have known you were a Dom.”

“What should have clued you in?” He dipped his head and nibbled on her ear.

“Your directness probably and then you ah… Oh.” Her taut nipples scraped against his chest. She leaned into him as he moved down her neck and bit the junction at her shoulder.

“What else?”

Unravel Me BLURB:

executive-assistant 300x200Mary is determined not to be distracted by the devilishly handsome Colin whose business deal is halting a much needed park. Armed with a plan, she tries to ignore her growing attraction.

After reading her resume, Colin believes Mary isn’t right for him or his office. However, he’s about to risk his biggest business deal yet when Mary knocks him off his game. The pair gives in to their growing desires, but Mary’s plan might unravel everything they’ve been building.

Be Warned: spanking, paddles, BDSM

Weekend Writing Warriors – When Lydia Licks His Finger

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from my birthday baby, the first in my Love Projects series, TAKING CHANCES. That’s right, yesterday my debut turned one. Happy First Authorversary to me!

THIS WEEK: Jake has return to the conference room, after his cold shower, to find Lydia in the middle of eating messy barbecue. Enjoy.

Before he could stop himself, he sat beside her, and his inquisitive finger reached out and rubbed the corner of her mouth. His finger hovered between them, an inch from her mouth. She licked her lips, and seconds ticked by. Nothing in the room captured his attention but her devilish mouth. Her tongue reached out and licked his finger. It took forever for his hand to return to his side. The air between them had become thick with heat. He couldn’t tear his sight from her beautiful eyes.

I think it’s time for them to give in a take a chance. Don’t you agreee? 🙂 I know when they give in and I also know how hot it gets too. *fans self* You can know too. Pick up your own copy of TAKING CHANCES and find out everything today.

BLURB:

takingchances1mLydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he deserves the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. Together they find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed loved.

Weekend Writing Warriors – The First Rule

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna found the courage to ask Simon to be her trainer. THIS WEEK: Simon has said, yes. Yes! 😀 I’ve skipped over a couple sweet nuggets to give you his first rule. Enjoy.

“First, no more panties.”

“At the club?”

“Anywhere. Since you don’t want to wait, while you are my trainee, I want you as aware of your body as possible. Your panties are an unnecessary barrier.” Holding the attention of a willing submissive was like a drug to Simon. Her gaze told of her concentration, but it was her sweet musk filling the air that would do him in. “Take care of your things here, then remove those panties, and get your ass to my office. You have five minutes.”

What’s going to happen in five minutes?! 🙂 I know the answer and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Janna’s ready to make over her life and get out from under the controlling thumb of her father. She doesn’t want another failed arranged marriage. She’s ready to do whatever it takes for the career she wants, enter the lifestyle she craves, and to earn the trust and love of the man that has captured her heart, but heartbreak and career hiccups seem to be her destiny.

Simon’s still recovering after his last submissive lied her way into his life. He’s not ready for Janna and how she pushes against his prejudices. He needs to decide if he’s willing to lose her or if he’ll fight for her love and submission.

Weekend Writing Warriors – Smart Girl

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST Snippet: Simon got his first glimpse of Janna the Project Manager. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over a bit. The meeting’s over and Simon has given Janna some well deserved praise. Their conversation has shifted back to how they met. Janna still needs a trainer …

“If you want me to train you, you are going to have to ask.” He waited for a bit. When she didn’t speak, he walked to the door. Smart girl. She’d probably thought better of asking him. She was better off with someone Charlie could find for her. He shoved off the ache the thought gave him.

“Would you train me, Sir?”

Way to go, Janna! She asked for what she wanted. I’m so proud. 😀 Now, do you think Simon will have the courage to accept? I know the answer and so can you! Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Weekend Writing Warriors – She’s In Control

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna got the spanking she deserved. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over a bit. We’re now in Simon’s POV. Janna’s called her first meeting and she’s hoping to earn back some of the respect she’s lost. Let’s see what Simon thinks as he enters the room.*I changed some punctuation to fit a tad more into this snippet.*

Janna had control of the room. Interesting. It would take a lot more to impress him though. He was betting if she could pretend her way into a club, she could also pretend her way into getting a job. Keller could usually tell the players from the real deal, but that only meant Simon would need to keep his eyes on her and yell fool at the first sign of trouble.

The last seat open was on the exact opposite end of the table from Janna. She watched him like a hawk; clearly she didn’t need another minute to prepare. A foreign sensation washed over him; he no longer held the reins of his team.

Do you think Simon’s going to like seeing Janna control his team? I know the answer and so can you! Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna suggested Simon punish her for her accidental lie during their first meet. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over their conversation, Janna’s little strip, AND her first several spankings.

His fingers continued to move over her folds. Her muscles strained to remain still. The next several slaps were harder to take than the first set, but soon his fingers were back over her folds. Her orgasm raced to the surface.

“That’s enough.” His hand disappeared from her sex. “Up you go, get dressed now.”

“But—”

I’m really glad Janna didn’t finish that thought. Yikes. So, do you think it will be smooth sailing for these two from here on out? 🙂  I know how it all works out and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Weekend Writing Warriors – Janna Asks For It

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna went to Simon’s office to ask for a fresh start and in the process distanced herself further. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over an interesting conversation and brought us to the spot when Janna has a suggestion.

“How can we get past this?” They were in the office, but their troubles had started in the club. How would they handle this sort of thing there? “You could punish me.”

“You’re asking for a spanking?” His cock clearly liked the idea. Her line of sight pulled to the obvious bulge in his pants.

“If that’s what you think I deserve, Sir.”

Oh boy, she’s going to get it now. I’m actually nervous for her and I know how it all works out and so can you.

Evernight Publishing is holding a Rock Your Weekend sale. ALL Titles are 25% off! Pick up one or pick up them all and fall in love, today.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna asked Simon for a fresh start. When he didn’t respond, Janna turned to leave his office. Simon stopped her by stepping in behind her and pressing the door closed. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped nothing. 🙂

Her hips swirled over him, and he pressed her against the door. A moan escaped her, and then he was gone. She remained plastered against the door, afraid to move, not wanting to admit the moment was over. She peered over her shoulder and found him pacing the back corner of his office.

He couldn’t have gotten any further away.

“Do I need to apologize again?” She slowly turned around to face him and pressed her body into the door. A part of her wished the door would swallow her whole.

They’re on the edge of moving forward. Can you feel it? I know how it all works out and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

LAST WEEK: Janna remembered what she forgot to tell Simon. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over a good bit because they’re parts I don’t want to give away. Today, I’m sharing the bit after Janna’s and Simon’s path cross again. He’s stopped her from leaving his office by pushing the door closed. The first line is Simon’s while they’re both still close and facing the door.

“You want to start over?”

“Yes, please.” The heat from his body soaked into her back. She wanted to press her hips into him. What would it feel like to be taken, right here?

“No more lies.”

“None, Sir.”

Her hips arched back to rub, seeking his hardness. She needed more.

ROW80 Check-in #104 How It All Started

The writing challenge that knows you have a life.

This round of 80 days is coming to a close this week. I’ve now participated in six rounds. How far have I come since the beginning? Well, I pulled up the first check-in from back in January 2012 and found a writer looking for her rhythm.

All my worries from back then came flooding back. I was in love with writing, still am. I was afraid of losing a new found passion. I also remember needing to respect the process. I needed to put in the time, study the craft, get to know my characters, and most importantly to keep moving forward.

I remember check-ins that held lots of fears and worries about my work, these remain. I have a lot still to learn. I’ll keep coming back to that first check-in though because it holds so much hope and that’s something I want to hang on to.

The self-discipline I worked on over the course of all 104 check-ins helped me to make this happen:

I have a lot planned for the rest of 2014 and beyond. I will get there by respecting the process and I will keep moving forward.

The Goals – week-11 results

  • Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters-  done. I actually spent time with characters from three different WIPs. Oh boy, lol.
  • Daily progress in writing craft, word count, editing, and/or plotting- considering it done once again. I did some craft study this week, but the majority of my time was spent on writing guest posts to promote my releases. I was hoping to get to the WIP last night, but it didn’t happen.
  • Take care of and be kind to myself (start w/ a relaxing ritual, the healthy journey, and daily breaks from technology)- done. Although I’m not getting enough sleep lately, I did spend time in my garden and I did read a couple books this week.

What you might have missed here this week:

Review: A Love Discovered by Ella Jade
Ten Things to know about the Love Projects Series
Mid Week Tease – Long Shot by Cara Bristol
Evernight’s Executive Assistant Anthologies Are Here!
