Sweet Saturday Sample - June 29, 2013

"So do you want to tell me what's up?"
"I will in a minute," he said, looking over my shoulder. His behavior gave me a negative feeling. "Do you know what you want, Stephan?"
"Yes. I come here all the time."
"Good." He sounded relieved.
And then Kelly was there asking for orders.
As soon as she left, I raised my eyebrow in question, but he ignored me. "You're still running the family business, I see."
"Yes," I said, not sure what he was getting at. I doubted it had anything to do with why he’d called me. "I'm still head of The Coleman Foundation, but since it's a not-for-profit, I'm not sure you could say it's the family business."
He waved it away. "Same thing."
I waited, but he didn't continue so I decided to play along. "You're still consulting?"
Daren released a sharp breath. "Yeah." He leaned toward me. "Are you still looking to collar a sub?"
So that's what this was about? "If I find the right one, yes." I noticed shoulders relax, and he sat back a little. "What does that have to do with anything?" I asked, truly confused.
The subject that I did not currently have a submissive came up in conversation last month at the party. I hadn't played with anyone in the last six months. No one had struck my fancy, and most of them reminded me too much of Tami.
Daren had been with his submissive, Gina, since college. They were well matched in likes and dislikes and were much more open in their relationship than I personally preferred. I did not share my submissives, nor did I play with others when in a relationship. Many did, like Daren and Gina, but I’d never found it to be appealing. What was mine was mine.
Kelly came back with our drinks, so Daren waited for her to leave again before answering. "Because I found a girl for you."
"Daren," I warned, shaking my head. This was another no on my list. I didn't enjoy being set up. Logan, I best friend, and his girl, Lily, had tried to set me up more times than I could count. I wasn't interested.
"Hear me out. She needs your help."
This aroused my curiosity. "What you mean she needs my help?"
"I know how much you like to help people, Stephan. I mean, look at what you do."
I was in complete disbelief. "Helping fund medical care for those can't afford it is a little different than taking on a submissive. Is she already a trained sub? She's looking for Dom?"
"She's a slave."
A slave. I didn't have a problem that, fundamentally. It was complete power exchange. Slaves gave up all control of their lives, their bodies, to their Master or Mistress. Some women, and even some men, choose to be slaves. For most slaves it was a comfort to have someone else make the decisions in their lives for them, to give up complete control to someone else. That didn't sound like the case here if she needed my help.
"Okay," I said, drawing out the word, still not quite sure where Daren was going with this.
"I was a party Saturday night. She was there. Her name is Brianna, and she belongs to Ian Pierce."
I knew of Ian solely by reputation. I’d never met personally. He was well-known in the community, from what I heard, he was in pain and humiliation. And he already had a slave. "What happened to his other one?"
"Oh, she's still there. Alex was at the party as well. Brianna is a new acquisition."
"You don't think she wants to be?"
"No," he said firmly. "I don't."

Flash Fiction Friday - June 28, 2013

This week's picture is from
The lights dimmed, and the crowd grew silent in anticipation. My heart was thudding in my chest as a spotlight pierced through the darkness and focused on something in the distance. I squinted my eyes trying to see.

Someone not far from me gasped just as I was able to make out what I was seeing. In the middle of the stage lay a man, face down, in what looked to be a pool of blood.

A woman across the room screamed, followed by several more, and shouts to call nine-one-one. This was not supposed to be a murder mystery.

Author Interview - Natalie Gayle

1.       Have you always wanted to be a writer? How did you get started writing romance?
I completed a vocational assessment in high school that indicated I should be a writer.  It just didn’t initially turn out that way.  I studied business and marketing at university and ended up managing IT projects professionally – Go Figure.
I did start writing a Mills and Boon type book in my early twenties.  I thought I had the “formula” figured out – I think I wrote about five or six chapters.  Where that story is now, I have no idea.  Best it stays lost, I would think as well. 
Reading or should I say my compulsion/addiction to books is something I’ve always had. I think it started in earnest when I was about nine or ten. I graduated to romance at around fourteen or fifteen.  But since that age I’ve devoured books by the truckload.  It’s a really good thing e-books came along.  My book collection was creating serious issues between my husband and I!  I came home from work one day and he’d put up two massive sets of book shelves in our bedroom to house more of my books.  He’d even put all the ones that were lying around in the shelves alphabetically.  It was very sweet. 
The problem became when I very quickly filled those shelves, and the ones in the office and the ones in the barn and the ones in the…….you get the picture.  As I said, an addiction to books!
I started writing a book in early 2008.  I had no idea what I wanted to really write about or the story, I just decided to do it.  I wanted to write a book that had all the things in it that I liked.  So I wrote the first twenty five thousand words then put it away.  In September last year I came back to it, and finished it.   Let me introduce you to Finding Trust! 
2.       Tell us about your writing process. Do you outline, or are you more of a seat of your pants type of a writer?
I laugh every time I get asked this question.  Why?  Because I’m a project manager for major IT projects, which means I meticulously plan everything to the ‘n’ th degree.  When I write, I just write.  I start with a vague idea around a couple of people and a concept then I just let them do the rest. 
As I’m writing I give “drops” of the novel to my beta-readers.  They’ll ask me what’s going to happen next.  Most of the time my answer is “I have no !@#$ing idea.”  And it’s true.  Seriously though, because I am an analytical person, what I think actually happens is that I shut off the analytical side of my brain and let the creative side run.  But what’s actually happening in my subconscious is the analytical side is shaping the events, timing, how it’s all going to come together. 
I’m speaking from my vast experience of having written two books – cough cough!!!  Both books are within 1000 words of each other (around 142,000 words a piece).  One has thirty six chapters, the other thirty seven and I didn’t plan it that way.  So I’m guessing my analytical side did. 
As for how it gets “out”.  It’s as if I’m watching a movie and my job is to describe what I’m seeing.  Sometimes the characters do make demands that I have to fulfill and I have no idea how what they want could possible work.  Case in point, Rory made a demand of me at the beginning of Finding Judgement.  I  won’t tell you what he demanded but you’ll be able to pick it if you read the book.  (If you can’t email me and I’ll let you know – after you’ve read the book!)
3.       Are there any romance novel cliché that make you cringe when you read them?
Mmmm, there are a few.  I can get on board with most things.  But some things are just cringe worthy, and the funny thing is that what makes me cringe will not necessarily make somebody else cringe.  I can’t think of anything off the top of my head from another author just now.  So I’ll go with an example of my own. 
When I was writing Finding Trust I referred to certain female fluids as “cream”.  That’s no surprise, we’ve all read that a gazillion times – right?  Anyway one of my beta-readers said “NO NO NO.  You can’t call it that. It gives me a visual that she’s got an STD.” Apparently this was a pet hate for her.  And she made me promise never to write about it as cream again.  Hence – no female cream, only double!!!!!  (You’ll get that joke – if you’ve read Finding Trust). 
4.       What is the hardest scene you’ve had to write, and what made it so difficult?
When I started out I thought the sex scenes would be the hardest.  The hardest bit about those is keeping it fresh and interesting. Also I’m conscious of having different “bedroom styles” for my couples.  So that was a bit strange wondering how different couples would go about getting it on!  (I can’t believe I am admitting to this – more’s the point – I’m writing it and no I haven’t been drinking, yet!)
Probably the hardest scenes I’ve written was a couple in Finding Judgement – there’s two maybe three that spring to mind and they’re very emotionally charged.  I wrote them with tears running down my face.  At one stage I think I was even sobbing.  Again – totally out of character for me if you know me! 
Seriously, this creative romance writing stuff is screwing with my tough business like image!
5.       Which of your heroines would you say is most like you, and why?
None really.  There’s probably elements of me in all of them.  I’m quite academic like Rihanna and Jazz and I do like to solve puzzles or know why something is as it is – very much like Jazz.  I’m quite an outgoing sort of person like Jazz as well, but I’m not such a nosey thing!  (although my daughter is – I call her honey nose when she gets too bad! – If you’re not sure what that reference is about – you’ll need to read Finding Trust). 
I’m very family orientated like TJ (heroine from Finding Judgement).  And yes I have had quite a bit of experience driving trucks, jetskiing and many of the other activities that you’ll read about in my books.  I refuse to confirm or deny personal experience with any of the intimate scenes.  Although I have discovered my husband is a little more forthcoming with details when asked.
6.       What are you working on now?
Today – nothing. The only writing I’m doing is this blog and some technical stuff for an IT project.  (I’m writing this first because it’s more fun).  
Finding Judgement is being formatted and in the last stages before release.  I’ll start Finding Justice (Dylan and Vanessa’s story) in the next couple of weeks.  I’m just discussing dates with my editor.  I could put myself under pressure and write another 140,000 word novel in ten weeks plus work twelve or more hours a day and travel overseas from Australia to Europe twice for work in that time period, or I could give myself another few weeks. 
Forgive me – I think I’m going to take a little more time..... Ahhhhhh – not sure I hate to let people down. 
Let me think about it for a day or so, maybe if I got a good chunk written by the end of the month………… It has felt weird not to have a novel on the go for that last couple of weeks. 
I recently discovered those school vocational assessments are really interesting and probably correct! Who would have thought, hey? You see, I clearly remember taking one of those in Year 11 (for my US friends, I think that equates to junior year in high school). Anyway, semantics. Well, the results came back indicating that I should pursue a career in writing and something else. What that something else was I can't remember but the writing thing stuck in my mind.
Sure, I'd always liked English and had already developed a ravenous appetite for romance novels by the age of sixteen--but who becomes a writer straight out of school? So to cut a long story short, I went to Uni and studied Business and ended up managing large-scale IT projects shortly after.
I can't complain: it's been a great career. I've done some awesome projects and met some incredible people and I won't be giving it up anytime soon. Anyway, I've messed around with a couple of "secret" novels over the years and I finally decided to get serious and finish one. Hence "Finding Trust" came about. And about twenty years later, I've finally proved a vocational assessment correct, because I love writing!
As to some other stuff about me: I live on the Gold Coast, Australia. I love spending time with my family and friends. When I'm not sitting behind a screen playing with IT or writing, you might find me down the beach playing in the waves on a Jet Ski or a bogey board (both are uber cool). When the weather turns a bit cooler (doesn't really happen on the Gold Coast), we like to head for the snow. I've discovered I have two kids who are kamikaze skiers--they must take after their father. He's always at me to "release the handbrake." Apparently I'd ski so much better. I call it a healthy understanding of self-preservation and gravity!
I like to think I can fit in a few workouts and martial arts classes each week. This tends to be a figment of my imagination more than reality, unfortunately. I am trying to remedy this, but those damn characters just keep demanding to have their stories told and, well, there's always another good book to read!
I hope you enjoy mine.
Please drop me a line. I'm active on Facebook, Twitter, and via email I'd love to know what you think of my books and well, let's be truthful--I love talking about books, whether they're mine or someone else's. Fiction is just so much more fun than reality!!!

Weekly Update & Giveaway Winner - June 24, 2013

It's Monday, and I'm back in Ohio once more. The trip to Colorado was eventful in both good and bad ways, but overall I count it as a success. I met lots of authors I've seen and talked to on Facebook for the last couple of years, and had the opportunity to meet some new readers.

First things first, however.

I want to thank everyone who entered my Hidden Threat RomCon giveaway. The First Kiss Event was a huge success at RomCon with Hidden Threat's first kiss scene getting voted the best. That's always a very exciting moment for an author. The corresponding giveaway here on my blog also went well with over 100 entries. I've sent the winners and email notifying them. Thank you to everyone who entered.

Now, on to RomCon. If you follow me on Facebook, you've seen all the pictures I took at the conference.

As I mentioned above, Friday morning was the First Kiss Event. This is a picture of me with the reader who won a signed copy of Hidden Threat.

These ladies were also at the First Kiss Event. They came all the way to Colorado from the UK for RomCon.

Friday night was my book signing. Thanks to the First Kiss Event, I ended up selling out of the copies of Hidden Threat I'd brought with me. I guess that first kiss of Cali and Matthew's left a lasting impression. ;)

All of my events were on Friday, so on Saturday I was able to go around to the different events and mingle with other authors. Here are some pictures with fellow authors that attended the event.

This past week was mostly about getting ready for RomCon, but I did get two and a half more chapters written. The manuscript for Finding Anna Book 4 is now up over 130K, and I still have a few more chapters to go at least. My goal is to finish it this week, so cross your fingers.

Sneak Peek Sunday - Sydney Logan

Today's Sunday Sneak Peek comes from Sydney Logan's upcoming release, Mountain Charm. 
She was just running toward the goal for a layup when she heard a voice.  “You look sexy in those shorts.”  Angelina gasped, and the ball flew upward, hitting the bottom of the rim.  So much for distractions. “You scared the crap out of me, and you made me miss my shot.”  Dylan smiled and grabbed the rebound before passing the ball back to her.    “You play?” he asked.  “Play is a little strong. I shoot, and sometimes, if I’m lucky, it goes in the hoop.”  Angelina tossed the ball toward the net, and this time, her aim was perfect.  He nodded approvingly. “Nice shot. I played a little in high school.”  “Were you any good?”  “I was a good bench warmer. Does that count?”  She grinned and tossed him the ball. “In that case, I suppose you’re allowed to play with me.”  “That’s my dream come true, you realize.”  Her heart fluttered. Fluttered “Just shoot the ball, Casanova.”  Dylan haphazardly threw the ball, and she laughed when it completely missed the rim.  “Wow, you are terrible.”  Dylan glared at her and tossed the ball in her direction. Bouncing it twice, Angelina lobbed it into the air, banking it off the backboard and through the hoop. She caught the rebound and passed it back. Dylan moved to the foul line and took another shot. This time, he missed the entire goal.  “This is embarrassing,” he muttered, rubbing the back of his neck. “Maybe I just need some motivation.”  “Like what?”  Dylan hoisted another awkward shot into the air. “Each time I score, you have to tell me something about yourself that nobody knows. Something I can’t find in my research.”  Angelina smirked. “Since you’ve yet to hit one basket, I think my secrets are pretty safe.”  “Maybe,” he said, shrugging. “And if you make your shot, I’ll tell you something nobody knows about me.”  So tempting “If, by some miracle, you happen to make a bucket or two, will my secrets be in your article?”  “No, Angelina. These secrets are just for me.” The way he said her name made her spine tingle, but she shook it off.  She had a basketball game to win.  “Deal.”

Sweet Saturday Sample - June 22, 2013


A deep moan tore from Matthew’s chest as he realized she wasn't going to stop him. He took her face in his hands and claimed her mouth with his. It felt like he had been drowning, and she was his life raft. This was not a soft, sensual kiss. This was a kiss of desperation. A kiss of need, not want. And Cali needed it just as much as Matthew.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled herself flush against him, not a whisper of space between them. Her body felt perfect against his. So much better than he'd imagined.

Wrapping his own arms around her waist, Matthew sucked on her lips until they opened for him. They both moaned as their tongues came together and explored. The taste of her! He couldn't get enough. The kiss increased in intensity as the passion they'd both been repressing for the last three weeks ignited flames.

Matthew backed her up against the counter and lifted her up onto the hard granite surface. Their lips parted briefly, but quickly found each other once again as Cali’s legs parted, inviting him in as he stepped between them.

Cali wasn't thinking; she could only feel. Her hands cupped his face, exploring with her fingers, as well as her mouth. She'd dreamed about this many times, but nothing compared to the real thing. He was hard and soft at the same time. Perfect.

Matthew’s hands ran up her thighs, feeling the muscles beneath his palms for the first time. More kept repeating in his head. He took hold of her hips and pulled her closer, feeling the heat of her through her jeans.

Logic went out the window, and his instincts took over. It had been too long. Too much denial. Too much denial. Too much wanting and waiting. Just too much.

This week's picture is from

She backed toward the bed, pulling him with her. He nearly tripped over his feet trying to keep up with her eagerness. They’d been teasing each other all night. He couldn’t wait to get her clothes off her.

Her knees came into contact with the bed, bringing their bodies flush. He took the opportunity to kiss her thoroughly. By the time he released her lips, they were both panting. “I think it’s time to get this dress off of you.”

“Mm. I think that’s an excellent suggestion.”

But instead of removing her dress, she dropped to her knees. “Happy anniversary.”

Weekly Update - June 17, 2013

Happy Monday everyone. I hope everyone's having a great week so far. Here in Ohio the sun is shinning. We're experiencing our first real taste of summer with highs in the upper 80's and high humidity. This is one of those times when I'm glad I work inside and not out in the hot sun.

Finding Anna Book 4 is still a work in progress. I haven't finished it yet, but I'm hoping that will happen in the very near future. I'm over 127K right now, and I know I still have several chapters to go. Finding writing time is going to be difficult for the rest of the week since I'm flying to Colorado Springs for RomCon Thursday, but I'm taking my laptop with me so hopefully I'll get something accomplished.

Speaking of RomCon...a reminder that I will be signing Friday afternoon from 4:30 - 5:45. I will have all my books with me, including some copies of Season of Love which includes my Christmas short story A Christmas Proposal.

I will be giving away 3 copies of my debut novel, Hidden Threat, at RomCon, and so as not to leave those unable to attend out, I will also be running a giveaway here on my blog for 3 ecopies of Hidden Threat. Make sure you stop back on Thursday to enter. There will be ways to promote the post in order to have more chances to win.

Sneak Peek Sunday - Lindsey Gray

“Fireworks” is a Contemporary Romance novella by Lindsey Gray, author of "Lies Inside", "Redemption", "Revisited", and "Not the Same Season". This eBook exclusive will be released June 20th, 2013.

Sophie McKibbin finds herself back in Sam Crawford’s life after ten years. Unfortunately, Sam is dating Lola, Sophie’s high school nemesis. Lola dumps Sam the day before he was supposed to introduce his mystery girlfriend to his family over the Fourth of July holiday. With the looming fear of disappointing his mother once again and his long held feelings for Sophie, he asks her to take Lola’s place. With family feuds, an old flame, and feelings that have been locked away for a decade, there is bound to be some fireworks.

Sam was waiting patiently for the barista to make his drink with two extra shots of espresso when he heard the tinkling laughter of two nurses ordering their own coffees.
He turned to see what all the fuss was about. The tall, dark haired nurse was showing the slightly shorter, brunette friend something on her cell phone.
“Two venti cafe mochas, please,” the tall one ordered.
“Venti, Lexi? I’m going to have such a sugar high by the time I get to the bottom of the cup.” The other one laughed.
Sam noticed something familiar about the brunette nurse at that moment and her voice confirmed it. For years, he’d dreamed of long, wavy brown hair, a pair of bright blue eyes, and heart shaped lips. Sam couldn’t believe it’d been almost ten years since he last saw her in his parents’ kitchen. There was no thought in what he did next, he acted on pure instinct.
“Why, if it isn’t little Miss Sophie McKibbin.”
Sophie turned her head in his direction, and a soft smile spread across her lips when she giggled. “Mr. Sam Crawford. Fancy meeting you here.”
Lexi looked between the smiling pair with confusion. “Someone fill me in, please?”
“Sorry, Lexi. Sam, this is my best friend and roommate Lexi Carter. Lexi, this is Sam Crawford. He’s from Halston, too, and happens to be the brother of my cousin’s wife,” Sophie explained.
“Well, that explains the greeting. I guess the two of you didn’t know you worked in the same hospital?” Lexi asked.
Sophie looked at him in surprise. “You work here?”
Sam rubbed the back of his neck nervously. He never imagined he would be so uncomfortable in Sophie’s presence, but she’d grown even more beautiful since he last saw her.
“Yes. I’m one of the evening hospital administrators. I’m assuming you two are part of our top notch nursing staff?”
“Yes, in the intensive care unit,” Sophie responded.
“You must be the team Dr. Thomas has been bragging about.” Sam was stuck smiling as he gazed into her crystal-blue eyes. “We should all go out for a drink sometime.”
“Sounds great,” Sophie replied.
Sam dug his business card out of his pocket and wrote on the back. “This is my office number, but my cell is on the back.”
“Thanks.” Sophie’s cheeks reddened as she took the card from him.
“See you later.” He lifted his coffee cup to the two before he left the cafeteria.
Lexi grasped Sophie by the elbow and forced her into a nearby booth. “I need details. Who is that sex-on-a-stick, and why have I never met him before?”
Sophie shook her head as memories of a younger Sam flooded her mind.  The years had been very kind to him in her opinion. He was over six feet tall, with what appeared to be a lean yet muscled body. His light brown hair looked like it needed a trim, but was incredibly sexy at the same time. Like her own were, his eyes were blue, yet they seemed hold a sparkle she’d never seen before when he smiled.
 “His younger sister and I were friends in high school. Sam was in college at that time, so I didn’t see much of him, but when I did . . .” Sophie got a faraway look in her eyes.
“You liked him!” Lexi smacked Sophie’s hand that lay on the table between them.
“Yep, I fell hard. I admit there was a bit of flirting, but nothing ever came of it.” Sophie ran her fingertips over her warm cheeks. “I thought I might see him a bit more once Caroline and my cousin, Drew, started dating, but he was working somewhere out east. Then I started dating Josh, and you know how that turned out.” Her relationship with Josh Reynolds had been a complete disaster, dictating how she had spent the last several years of her life.
“It’s time to get back on the horse, so to speak. I’m sure that cowboy wouldn’t mind a ride.”
Sophie laughed, but deep down in the dirty recesses of her mind, she could picture it happening.
