I’ve been so busy preparing to move out of my house that I totally missed the release of my latest, Passion in Restraints. Shame on me!
This is the 5th novella in the Diary of a Free Woman series. Only 2 more left to arrive. Happy Reading!!
Desires fulfilled one spank at a time.
Curiosity and the need for a male companion lead Gwenevere to the Red Light District of Amsterdam. She strolls into a shop full of sex toys and apparel. As she surveys the merchandise, a hunky man with a tattoo introduces himself to her. She’s attracted to him and a glimpse at his groin reveals he has a fondness for her too.
He gives her his calling card and invites her to meet him later. When she notices he works at a fetish club, she questions if she should take him up on his invitation. She’s a naughty woman, but not the kind of kinky one who indulges in wild sexual adventures. He entices her with zesty words and a desire to please her.
Unable to resist his wicked charm, she meets him at his place of business. She participates in his playful games and experiences passion in a way she never would have dreamed.

Book one in the Crossing Forces series
Bad boy FBI agent and feisty widowed police detective collide pursuing a human trafficker in small town Texas on their way to true love.
Bad boy, married to his job FBI agent Cole Lucas always gets his man. So when the unthinkable happens and one gets away, Cole grits his teeth and hunts human trafficker Carlo Maldonado all the way to Antioch, Texas, where he collides with Detective Andi MacLaren.
Cole doesn’t do small towns and doesn’t get involved with women he works with, but Andi tempts him in ways he doesn’t want to acknowledge.
Two murders, her partner shot and leading the investigation on her own, the last thing Andi needs is a cocky FBI agent who sees her as no more than a tagalong.
Widow and single mother Andi is used to being on her own. When Cole gets stuck without a place to stay, crashing on her couch puts them in dangerous territory.
Attraction and passion bring Andi to a place she’d left behind when her husband died. Her three-year-old son quickly wiggles his way into Cole’s heart, and he starts contemplating things—family, love—that he’d never planned for himself.
Can being forced to work together make them stronger or will their differences jeopardise their case and their hearts?
“Goodnight, Cole.” Obviously, she didn’t want to talk to him about anything, let alone his overdue apology.
“So, that’s it? You’re not going to accept my apology?”
“Not tonight. I’m tired, and we have a long day tomorrow.” She turned to go.
“Andi, wait.” Why was he calling her back? He could respect that she was still upset with him—she had every right to be. He’d gone a bit overboard with some of the things he’d said.
Keeping Cass’ phone call from her had been unnecessary from the start. He hadn’t needed to carry it on in the car after they’d left the warehouse. It’d only served to get her so pissed off at him she’d barely uttered a word all day. So much for getting somewhere on the case.
Andi glanced over her shoulder and Cole grabbed her wrist. He yanked her into his arms and covered her mouth with his.
He hadn’t intended to kiss her but as her soft, warm lips caressed his, Cole couldn’t have changed his mind even if he’d wanted to. Her curves hit his chest with enough impact that should have jarred him back into his head, but he was lost and overheated immediately. He wrapped her in a tight embrace and kissed her harder.
She fought him, but his mouth was demanding over hers, and Andi opened for him, melting against him, surrendering to him. She slipped her arms around his neck and Cole bit back a groan. Her taste, sweeter than he’d imagined, was like ripe berries. He needed more.
Andi whimpered against his mouth, her tongue dancing with his. His cock stood at attention, straining against his zipper. He moaned as her body melded to his, breasts to chest, hips to hips. Cole had to have her.
As he walked them back towards the couch, she pushed hard against his chest, breaking the kiss and shoving him away from her. They both panted hard.
“Don’t…don’t ever do that…again,” she stammered, the gorgeous swell of her breasts lifting and pulling her shirt taut as her chest heaved. He could see peaked nipples. His erection throbbed and he struggled for coherent thought.
Cole dragged his gaze to her face. Blue eyes wide, cheeks rosy, freckles noticeable, her lips swollen from his. Though she’d been appealing before, how she stood before him now blew that out of the water. She was gorgeous.
He needed to say something. Anything. Apologise? He wasn’t sorry in the least. Speechless just about covered it.
She trembled and rubbed her arm. It took all he was made of not to pull her back to him and kiss her again.
There was no chance to answer. Andi turned on her heel and fled down the hall, slipping into the room farthest away from the living room. She didn’t even pause to look at him as she slammed the door.
He winced. What the hell should he make of what had happened? He stared down the hallway for a moment, his heart pounding. Never in his life, not even when he was a teenager, had one kiss stirred him to the point that Andi’s had. Then she’d run from him. His body shook with unfulfilled need.
Cole couldn’t blame her, really. No way should he have given in to the urge to kiss her. But he had the sinking suspicion he would have to do it again—and more. He wouldn’t be able not to. And hell, she’d kissed him back.
The voice of reason chided that he didn’t get involved with women he worked with, but his cock certainly disagreed. He ignored them both and dragged his hand over his face. The morning would bring complications.
Cole sighed and glanced at the couch. It looked comfortable, but would he be able to sleep?

Ready for another Blog Hop? One with romance? You like romance, right? I like it too, and I like it to be complicated. Love is never easy, right? In Demons in Disguise, there is a demon to contend with. Well, add the fact that the boyfriend has a secret too and yeah, the protagonist has her challenges. In my Sexy & Damned series, my protagonist is stripper and she struggles to survive among supernatural creatures. There is a man, a lover, but they can never be together since he’s human and she’s…not. Yeah, there are problems. Many of them. As for my menage, Destined for Love, the protagonist’s life is in the toilet. Then by luck or fate, she finds two men. They are…different. They’re genies. Can the three of them be happy together? Should she use her last wish to fix her life or use it to free the two men who have shown her love? Difficult decision to make. (The book comes out in December from Total E-bound.) So, as you can see, I tend to have complex romances. Some books are more erotica than romances, but I think you’ll see the hint of romance.
I’m curious…Which do you like, light romance (barely there) or heavy romance?

Okay, so I finished a menage titled Stroke of Luck. I threw this blurb together in an hour. This is not an official blurb, so feel free to comment.
Valerie has lost her job, her boyfriend, and her home, all in one day. Her luck changes after she locates a bottle on the beach and she releases two very hot genies. Not only do they offer her three wishes, they give her love and passion beyond her wildest dreams. By sheer accident, she burns through two wishes. When it comes time to make her last one, she must decide if she should use it for herself, or award it to her two insatiable lovers.
Now, I’m not sure if I want to self publish it, or send it off to a e-publisher. Decisions, decisions….
Will wait until after the RT conference to decide.
Feel free to leave a comment 🙂
