Guest Blogger: SJ Maylee with UNEXPECTED DESTINY

Thank you for having me today. I'm thrilled that Unexpected Destiny has released!

These assassins have really gotten a hold on me. I can’t wait till they all have their happily ever after. How did I get here, giving happy endings to assassins?

Initially I was looking to find love for a bad boy. Assassins aren’t usually the hero. They’re the villain. But I wanted to change all that. These four men came to me almost instantly. In no time, I had bits of each of their stories. I knew I had to write it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly on these men who want to save the lives of those who can’t get the help they so desperately need, whose lives are in immediate danger.

Now that I’ve pulled that string, I see a whole mess of stories. Once I tell the stories of these four men, more will come. Great things are in store. I can’t wait to experience it all. <3

Excerpt:

Aidan turned off the faucet and caught the reflection of those gorgeous
brown eyes in the mirror.
“Oops. Wrong door,” said his girl as she turned around.
“I can share.” He could handle the surveillance later. This woman
deserved his attention.
She stopped and turned around. “Okay then.” She took a step toward
him. “You know what? I should have asked for confirmation earlier.” Her gaze
was full of mischief.
“You’re right. You should have asked.” He took a hold of her hand
and pulled her close. “I sure would like to see that tiny scrap of lace.” And
just like that his night got infinitely better.
She stopped her forward movement when their chests were a mere inch
apart. A nice rosy blush heated her cheeks. He kept hold of her hand while her
other played with the lapel of his dark leather jacket. “I can’t believe I’m
doing this.”
“You need to get back to your friends?”
“Yes, but…” She licked her bottom lip. “Maybe I could stay here for
a few minutes.”
“At least a few.” He tapped the bottom of her chin. “How about you
start by telling me your name?”
“Liz.” Her gaze met his and he wanted time to stop. Something about
the lonely look in her eyes called to him to not let her get away. She shifted
closer. “Who are you?”
He pushed his finger over her waistband, rubbing her hipbone. “I’m Aidan.”
He squeezed the hand he still held. Her soft body relaxed against his.
“I should probably go. I need to get my friends home.”
“I don’t think you should go anywhere.” He brushed his nose against
hers.
A delicious moan slipped from her lips. “I don’t want to leave but
I need to make sure they get home safely.”
“It’s nice of you to look out for them.” Damn, she smelled good. It
was lilacs or roses or something.
“I’d rather stay here with you.” She leaned in and their lips
almost met. “My friends are always right. I should have gone out with them
months ago.”
“Stay a few more minutes.” He caressed over her hips to her round
ass. Hot tension filled his thoughts. Forget a few more minutes, he’d take all
night and then some to explore this beautiful woman.
“More.” She scraped her teeth over her bottom lip.
A second later, the door opened. “Lizzy, we got to go. Emily isn’t
feeling well.”
She dropped her head to his shoulder and he wrapped his arms around
her.
“Oh, I’m so sorry, Lizzy.” The woman held the door open. “You’re
right. He is cute. Bring him with you. Emily won’t mind.”
“She’ll be right out,” he said. Once the friend left the bathroom,
he brushed her hair behind her shoulders and stroked her back.
“I feel like I’m cursed.”
“You and me both, sweetheart.” He didn’t let her go.
“Well.” She looked up at him from under her long, dark lashes.
“It’s not what I had in mind but would you help me with my friends?” The soft
tone of her voice had him imagining how she’d purr if he made her come. “I
think I might be the only one sober and they can be a bit much to wrangle into
a cab. They live north in Edgewater and then we could do something, maybe go
back to my place.” She worried her poor bottom lip once more.
“I’d like that.” He squeezed her ass. “Sure. I’ll help, Lizzy.” He
tugged on her hair. Then he’d help himself to more of her.

MidWeek Tease: You Have Everything To Do With It

Welcome to MidWeek Tease hosted by Angelica Dawson!

Today I'm offering another snippet from my latest release, THE ALPHA'S TABOO MATE. This is the first in my Blood Moon Lynx series, and it's available from Evernight Publishing by clicking HERE.

Canyon has taken Fiera to a cabin only he and his family know about, so the two can finally be mated...

“Let me show you what to do.” He moved back onto the bed and knelt next to her, took her hand, and guided it toward his cock. “Wrap your hand around it, gently.” She did what he said. “Now move it like this.” He placed his hand over hers as a guide, while she imitated his movements from before. The contrast between the velvety smooth skin on his cock and the veins covering it was delicious.

“Too much!” Canyon moaned and moved her hand away.

“Oh, I’m sorry. Did I hurt you?”

“No, sweetheart.” He stroked her hair. “I’m barely hanging onto my self-control. I don’t want to wait any longer, Fiera.” He grasped her face and pulled it toward his own. “I need to be inside you.”

The kiss he planted on her mouth was so hot, she half expected the bed to catch on fire. The room was as warm as an oven already. She knew that sensation had as much to do with her own body heat as it did from their combined arousal. Shifters ran hot, and there were two inside this cabin.

When Canyon pushed her back on the bed and clamped his mouth on her left nipple, Fiera cried out again as jolts of electricity raced through her body at his touch. She’d never felt anything like this! He sucked gently, alternating that with licking around the nipple, the areola, and the underside of her breast, until she was certain she’d lose her mind.

She clutched at his hair, tangling her fingers in it and surprised by its softness. When he switched to the other nipple, Fiera reached down between her legs and giggled at the wetness there. He glanced up, grinning.

“You find this amusing?”

“I’m soaked. I didn’t know I could get this wet.”

“Hope I have something to do with that.”

“You have everything to do with it.”

Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.

Entire First Chapter of THE ALPHA'S TABOO MATE


Chapter One

Canyon Benedict knew Fiera Kent was his mate. An alpha knows his mate, after all. Every male child in their packs learned that fact before he learned to hunt with a bow. Respecting their mating law was sacred. It was the lifeblood of their entire existence. Without it, they might as well stay in human form and mix the bloodlines, ignoring their true nature until their shifter DNA no longer existed.

As they made their way toward the narrow part of the river where they could safely cross, Canyon squeezed Fiera’s hand. “We’re almost there.”

“Why don’t you want to talk in your home, or in mine?”

“This cabin is my family’s secret. My father, my uncles, my grandfathers, and my great-grandfathers have all used it as a place to get away from everyone and everything. It’s a retreat for an alpha and his mate, even if the only time alone together they can manage is one night.”

The cabin was on a small island near the shore, but only accessible over the water. Canyon had been there before, and mere days ago he’d marked the shallow place where it was safe to cross with stones in a pattern only he would recognize. The water would help mask their scent, and serve as a barrier to keep others away.

Fiera gazed up at him, her beautiful blue eyes filled with trepidation. He knew the reason for that, too. But soon, the reason for her fear would be in the past. Fiera was his mate and no one else’s.

“Canyon, taking me there to talk won’t change anything.”

As the filtered sunlight shone through a break in the clouds, Canyon stopped walking and held his breath to admire the beauty it cast on Fiera. Her dark hair sparkled like sun-dappled water, and her eyes were as blue as a summer sky. Mating with her for the first time was all he thought about. It had defined his existence for years now.

“Have you changed your mind about me, Fiera?” He brushed her hair with one hand, and the gesture caused his cock to spring to attention.

Fiera was an extraordinary girl. Correction… Fiera was an extraordinary woman. She was all grown up now, and Canyon wanted her more than ever. He had to fight with every ounce of willpower not to simply take her here on the forest floor. She was his mate, after all!

“Everything is complicated.”

“Hawke and his family are in Port Angeles all day, and they don’t know about this cabin. It’s the perfect spot for us to talk about everything and settle this, once and for all.”

At the mention of Hawke’s name, her eyes clouded with fear, which didn’t surprise him. “You make it sound so simple.”

“It is. Trust me.” He squeezed her hand again. “They can’t hurt you, Fiera.” His heart raced and his skin grew taut as his alpha lynx senses kicked in. He sniffed the air, searching for the scent of others, but there were none. He and Fiera were alone. “I won’t let them.”

Being alone wasn’t an easy thing to accomplish in pack life. By the time they reached puberty, they were keenly aware of the presence of all living creatures within half a mile or more, and it was rare that no other shifters were close by. But Canyon still wouldn’t feel safe until they were indoors.

When she averted her gaze, the hair on the back of his neck prickled. “You don’t know what you’re saying. Hawke’s family can hurt anyone in our village. They’ve been doing it for years. And the Elders have turned a blind eye each time.”

“That’s because every time a family makes a complaint against the Medinas, they retract it before the Elders can thoroughly investigate.”

“And why do you think that is? Fear.”

You are my priority today.”

He knew this woman was his mate, and that’s why he needed to be alone with her. This was the perfect time, while the Medina family was out of the village. It was his intention to persuade Fiera to mate with him once and for all. After they did, Hawke could do nothing.

“Once we settle things between us, we’ll deal with the Elders and their complacency.” By bringing Fiera here without first having their official ceremony, Canyon was breaching protocol, but he didn’t care. How else was he supposed to handle this situation? Hawke Medina had forced him to take drastic measures.

“Canyon, what can the two of us do against an entire family?”

As Canyon placed a hand on each side of Fiera’s face, he reflected that simply touching her like this made the urge to shift so strong, he had trouble controlling it. “You are my mate. We both knew it, even before the Elders declared it so three months ago.”

“And even that hasn’t mattered to Hawke. He has defied them.”

Hawke had come forward and announced to Fiera’s family and to his own that he’d chosen Fiera. Canyon had filed a formal protest, and the Elders had sided with Canyon because Hawke had never declared his intentions for Fiera before that day. But Canyon had. Loudly, to anyone who would listen.

“Hawke has defied them because he’s using you for his family’s agenda. Fiera, Hawke is not your mate. He never was. We only have one, and you’re mine. You can’t be his, too.”

The tender look on her beautiful face made him want to shout for joy. “I know that. A female lynx only has one mate, and you’re mine.”

“That’s right. Exactly. We both know it. Our village Elders have declared it so. And I’m not about to let a fucking leopard with human blood in his mother’s family try to claim you instead.”

“It’s more complicated than Hawke simply wanting me as his mate.”

Every fiber of his being ached to touch her all over. He wasn’t about to let Hawke and the Medina family’s jealousy and greed screw this up for him, or for Fiera. He had made up his mind, and he wasn’t turning back. As far as Canyon was concerned, this was set in stone.

“It’s not complicated at all. I’ve waited ten years for you to come of age, Fiera.”

Longing and desperation filled her eyes. “I know you have.”

“Do you remember the first time I saw you? You were only five years old.” Canyon had just turned fifteen, and with one look at Fiera, he knew. She was his mate. Once he turned eighteen, though, he still had to wait for her to come of age.

“Of course I remember it.” She smiled.

“Then you haven’t changed your mind about me?” She was his. She belonged to him, and he wasn’t going to stand by and let another male take her from him.

“No.” Fiera shook her head. “I haven’t changed my mind, but you don’t understand.”

Pack law forbade any male from claiming a female as their mate until that girl’s eighteenth birthday. Fiera had turned eighteen three months ago. This should have been a done deal already. He and Fiera should have mated, and perhaps she’d even be with child by now.

“What is there to understand? You’ve said it yourself. We’re mates. There’s nothing standing in our way to make this official.”

Pack law was still pack law. Even the Medina family was bound by it. You don’t step in at zero hour and pull the rug out from under another alpha, no matter how far up a human’s ass you lived, or how much wealth and power your family had accumulated because of it. Since Hawke refused to obey the decision of the Elders, Canyon had to take matters into his own hands.

A birdcall made Fiera jump. That wasn’t like her. She loved being outdoors. Canyon took her hand again. “Come on. We’re almost there.”

“I don’t like not feeling safe out here alone anymore.” Her voice came out in a near-whisper, filled with sadness that made him see red. She glanced around, and Canyon actually saw her shiver.

Hawke’s family was in deep with the human business community because of his half-human mother, Nanette. Nanette’s family owned several businesses that were known for hostile takeovers of rivals.

The Medina family used bullying tactics and threats to get their way on nearly everything that affected pack life in their village. Canyon wouldn’t be surprised if they were threatening Fiera’s family as well.

There had been rumors for over a year now of companies trying to take over the Kent family’s business. Canyon and his father believed the Medinas were behind that. Canyon intended to discover the truth behind those rumors as well.

“It’s not right at all that you no longer feel safe outdoors or alone,” he said. “So let’s do something about it.”

When she nodded and squeezed his hand, they continued their journey across the water. Once they were inside the cabin, Canyon lit a lamp. After locking the door, he watched Fiera. She still looked nervous, but not as much as she had outdoors.

Once it had become apparent that Hawke wasn’t going to abide by the Elders’ decision, Fiera had begun avoiding him. Since it had never been like her to do that, Canyon had known something was very wrong. He’d refused to believe she’d changed her mind about him, so that only left one explanation—Hawke.

“Come and sit beside me.” He took her hand again. Tonight, if all went as he hoped, this cabin would be the place where Canyon finally marked Fiera as his own. Once he did, the Medina family would be powerless to use her and Hawke would be powerless to claim her.

After he led her to the sofa he took a seat, but Fiera scooted away from him toward the far end. Having her here in this cabin was pure delight, as well as torture. His dick was rock hard, and all he wanted to do was claim her as his own. Right now. Before anyone could find them and interfere.

But Canyon would not force her. That was as bad as claiming a woman who wasn’t your mate. He moved next to her. “Fiera, you’re with me. You’re safe now. No one will find us here.” Canyon stroked her hair, inhaling her scent. His entire body was on fire for this woman.

“You make it sound like being inside this cabin solves everything.” One of the things Canyon loved about Fiera was her spirit. This was no meek, mild female, and that excited him even further.

“We have enough food and supplies to stay here for a week. And don’t worry about your father. Stone and Arizona are staying with him. He won’t be alone.” Stone Rockwell and Arizona Collins were his two best friends. Canyon would trust them with his life.

Fiera’s father, Cash, had been losing his grip on reality ever since he’d lost his mate ten years ago. Fiera’s uncles had called on a couple of healers, but neither of them had been able to slow or reverse the mental decline. Canyon had heard his parents talking late one night, and they believed Cash had simply given up.

As such, Cash’s family business was in trouble. Fiera had no brothers, and the males in her family weren’t known for their business skills. Canyon and his father believed the Medinas were taking advantage of that, but they had no actual proof. Not yet, at least.

Canyon was convinced this was why Hawke had suddenly come forward and tried to claim Fiera. They were only using her as leverage. That had to be the reason, because she wasn’t Hawke’s mate.“You’re my mate, Fiera.” Canyon stroked her hair again. “We belong together. I’ve waited long enough. It’s time to make this official.”

It wasn’t the first time he’d sensed both desire and fear in her at his touch. Canyon had always attributed the latter to her youth and inexperience. But this time, he glimpsed something else in her eyes, and it caused him to draw away his hand. The last thing he wanted to do was upset his mate, but why was she so conflicted? What had he missed?

“I thought you’d be happy about this. It’s the only way we can finally be mated without Hawke’s family interfering. The Elders have declared it as law, so now there’s nothing to stop us. You want this, too. Don’t try to tell me I’m wrong.”

As she shook her head slightly, her eyes filled with an emotion he couldn’t interpret. Before he had time to process the fact that she’d moved, she was at the front door. She could move faster than he’d realized. He sprinted over to her and put his arms around her, his entire body aching with the need to hold her and make love to her.

“Let me go.”

It nearly broke his heart to hear the hardness in her sweet voice. It also made him see red again. “Fiera, what is going on? You told me I was your mate. We belong together.”

She struggled against his grip so hard he released it. He didn’t want her hurt. The look she gave him was more fearful than desperate as she tried to open the front door. “Unlock it.”

“No.”

“You said we were going to talk.”

“We did talk. What else is there to say? You’re mine. We can stay here for days if we like. And when we leave, I’ll have marked you as my mate. It will be official, and there’s nothing anyone can do to reverse that.”

The pain on her face confused him even further. What the hell was going on?

“You don’t understand. I can’t do that.”

Canyon cupped her face, but she pulled away. “Don’t touch me again.”

“Fiera, tell me what’s wrong.” Why was she treating him this way? What the fuck had happened in the space of a week?

This is wrong. You and me. I can’t let it happen.”

“Why not? You said—”

“I know what I said, but I was mistaken.”

“No. No you weren’t mistaken.” Canyon shook his head, as much to clear the confusing images as in protest of what he’d just heard. “Hawke said something to you, didn’t he? He did something to you!”

A dark haze filled Canyon’s mind. “If he touched you, I’ll kill him.” Canyon pulled Fiera into a tight embrace with one arm, while he pushed her hair aside to look for a mark.

“Stop that! He didn’t mark me. Let me go.”

The softness of her skin, coupled with her scent, drove him to distraction. Her lush curves molded against him, fueling his desire. He’d waited so long for this girl, and now that she was this close, he could barely control his arousal. She was aroused, too. He could smell it on her. She wanted him as badly as he wanted her.

“Fiera…” Canyon brushed his lips along her hair, forcing a soft whimper from her. “Stop fighting this. I won’t hurt you. We’re meant to be together. We both know it.”

As he moved his mouth to her neck, she drew in a shaky breath. Canyon bit her skin gently, but not enough to break the skin. Not yet. Her soft moan sent a rush of heat to his entire groin, and Canyon knew he was nearing the point of no return.

When he pressed his lips to hers, fireworks exploded behind his closed eyelids. But as he pulled her closer to his body, she jerked her mouth away from his. Canyon nearly recoiled at the fear and resignation in her beautiful blue eyes.

“Stop! Please! You don’t understand.” Her voice came out in a breathy whisper, and it was filled with the same desperation he saw on her face.

“You’re right.” Canyon tightened his grip on her. “I don’t fucking understand any of this. Explain it to me.”

This girl had been his since the moment he’d met her, and up until recently, she had told him she felt the same way. If Hawke had done or said something to change her mind, he’d fucking kill him in the town square, with his bare hands. And damn the consequences. Without Fiera, Canyon had no reason to live.

“I’m the only heir to my family’s business. If I mate with you instead of with Hawke, they will have my father declared mentally incompetent and take what’s left of the business.”

What?

“My family will be ruined, and my father might as well be dead. You don’t completely understand their power. They will do this, Canyon. Of that I have no doubt. Things are already in motion. I can’t stop it unless I allow Hawke to make me his mate.”

As Canyon stared at her, his entire world tilted on its axis. He did not want to believe that the Medinas would stoop this low, but now he had no choice. Everything he and his father had suspected was true, only it was far worse than he’d imagined.

“They actually told you this?”

“Yes. That’s why I’ve been avoiding you this past week. When I’m near you…” The look on her face said it all. She did want him. He’d been right about that. His heart filled with joy until she sucked in a hard breath as if she was about to cry. “I only want to be with you, Canyon, but I can’t. I have to take Hawke as my mate instead.”

The knowledge she still believed he was her true mate meant nothing in light of this revelation. If he claimed Fiera as his own, she’d lose everything her family had worked generations for. But if he gave her up to Hawke, Canyon would lose his mate, and he and Fiera would both be miserable for the rest of their lives.

THE ALPHA'S TABOO MATE
Blood Moon Lynx 1

***Click HERE to purchase directly from
Evernight Publishing***

BLURB

Alpha lynx shifter Canyon Benedict has always known Fiera Kent was his mate. When leopard shifter Hawke Medina tries to claim her, in order to use her as leverage to gain control of the Kent fortune, Canyon takes matters into his own hands. But even after he and Fiera are officially mated, the threat from the Medina family is far from over.

Fiera has loved Canyon from the time she was a child, and is thrilled when he sneaks her away to his family’s secret cabin across the river so they can be mated. But Hawke won’t let it go. Canyon and his father eventually discover illegal business practices that uncover the Medina family’s web of deceit and lies affecting their entire village.

But is it enough? Will Canyon have to fight Hawke to determine which alpha can finally claim Fiera for life?

EXCERPT

The kiss he planted on her mouth was so hot, she half expected the bed to catch on fire. The room was as warm as an oven already. She knew that sensation had as much to do with her own body heat as it did from their combined arousal. Shifters ran hot, and there were two inside this cabin.

When Canyon pushed her back on the bed and clamped his mouth on her left nipple, Fiera cried out again as jolts of electricity raced through her body at his touch. She’d never felt anything like this! He sucked gently, alternating that with licking around the nipple, the areola, and the underside of her breast, until she was certain she’d lose her mind.

She clutched at his hair, tangling her fingers in it and surprised by its softness. When he switched to the other nipple, Fiera reached down between her legs and giggled at the wetness there. He glanced up, grinning.

“You find this amusing?”

“I’m soaked. I didn’t know I could get this wet.”

“Hope I have something to do with that.”

“You have everything to do with it.”

A soft chuckle escaped his throat as he grabbed the hand that she’d put between her legs. He licked her wet fingers. “Oh, that tastes incredible.”

When he bent down and spread her legs to lick her pussy, Fiera moaned loudly. The sensation was so incredible that she could barely breathe. He sucked gently on her clit, teasing it with his tongue, until Fiera knew she was going to come. He slid a finger into her wetness and moved it in and out, and that was all it took.

A powerful orgasm overtook her. In response, Fiera arched her back and cried out. Surely his dick inside her couldn’t feel better than this. If it did, she’d pass out from sheer joy. He continued sucking her clit and finger fucking her until the contractions began to subside. Once they did, he lay on top of her again and kissed her.

Fiera wrapped her arms and legs around his hot, hard body and shoved her tongue into his mouth. She tasted her own juices, but she didn’t care. This was so damn wonderful she might never leave this cabin. They could stay here, making love until they couldn’t walk, and she’d be just fine with that.

“Oh, Fiera…” Canyon sat back on his heels and stroked his dick again, then moved closer to her and guided it toward the opening to her wetness. “Are you ready?” His voice was so rough and gravelly, but that only added to the excitement.

“Yes!” She’d been ready for this most of her life. “Take me, Canyon. Make me yours.”

With a loud groan, he began to ease his cock into her pussy. Fiera held her breath and bit her lip because it hurt. “It’s all right, sweetheart. Try to relax your muscles.”

“Okay.” She smiled up at him, touched that he’d noticed her discomfort.

Canyon bent down and kissed her again, gently working his lips over hers until Fiera was so focused on the kiss and the heady sensation it sent coursing through her body, she didn’t realize his cock was finally inside her. There was no pain now, only a fullness that sent shockwaves of desire out to her fingers and toes.

“Oh, yes. That’s it.” When Canyon began to move, Fiera threw back her head and moaned loudly as the most exquisite pleasure flooded her senses. “You’re mine now, Fiera. No one can take you from me. We’re bonded forever!”

MidWeek Tease: Fear Was The Last Thing She Felt

Welcome to MidWeek Tease hosted by Angelica Dawson!

Today I'm offering a snippet from my upcoming release, THE ALPHA'S TABOO MATE. This is the first in my Blood Moon Lynx series, and it releases from Evernight Publishing in one week, on August 17, 2016!!

Canyon has taken Fiera to a cabin only he and his family know about, so the two can finally be mated...

“Oh…” His gaze roamed everywhere at once, from her breasts, to her triangle of hair, down her legs, and back up again. Sweat formed in the hollow of her throat as she watched him. Her breathing increased, and her pulse raced.

Everything her cousins had told her about sex came rushing back, but none of it made sense right now. It was a tangled mess of erotic images and advice that Fiera had tried to compartmentalize at the time, as if when this happened, she’d be thinking clearly. She could barely think at all. Every cell in her body was focused on Canyon, and what he might do or say next.

A deep, low growl escaped his throat again. Shivers ran down her spine as a wicked, sexy grin split his face. He was on her before she had time to process that he’d moved. She was in his arms and he was walking. He carried her to the bed and placed her on it, then covered her body with his.

Fiera cried out in pleasure as he kissed her, tangling his fingers in her hair and tugging just hard enough so that she felt it, but not pushing past the point of real pain. It was exhilarating! He moved his tongue against hers and ground his erection into her groin. She arched her hips, wanting more without a complete understanding of what that meant. Not yet anyway. She would know soon enough.

When he broke the kiss, he sat back on his heels and peeled off his shirt. Her arousal skyrocketed at the sight of his hard, muscled torso. She reached up and traced the tats. He moaned loudly and grabbed her hand, licking her palm and across her wrist.

Shivers ran down Fiera’s spine again as he moved off her and removed his pants and underwear. Her jaw dropped open at the sight of his cock. Wow… She’d never seen a fully engorged penis before. It was so red, and the tip was wet. It sprang out of his pubic hair like something alive and separate from the rest of him, as if he had little or no control over it.

“Don’t be afraid, Fiera.” He stroked it slowly, up and down the length, while he held her gaze. “We’ll take our time.”

Fear was the last thing she felt.

About N.J. Young

I'm a Midwestern girl and a lover of coffee, live music, and horror movies, not necessarily in that order.

I've been writing all my life, and I honestly can't remember a time when I wanted to do anything but write. After many years spent suffering the trials of corporate America and writing about everything from financial risk management to software user manuals to website copy about radiators (sadly, I'm not kidding), I decided take the plunge and start writing books.

I love a good love story with super hot alpha males, strong heroines, a little humor, and a lot of suspense. Sprinkle in some sexual fantasies and a few BDSM aspects, and Boom! These are only a few of the themes you'll find in my books.

When I'm not writing, I'm probably at Starbucks, or fighting evil with the help of my husband, two children, and our houseful of animals.

Fierce Temper (Ozark Magic #2) Excerpt
Tessa swallowed, the heat from Archer’s touch sizzling through her. Milo’s hand slid to the back of her hair as if he wanted his own turn running his fingers through it. He caressed her hair gently, and she nearly moaned in pleasure.

This was a bad idea. A voice in her head kept saying it. But an even louder voice seemed to be kicking that little voice’s ass. Maybe the timing wasn’t ideal, but she was tired of holding back and putting up walls. She’d tried for so long not to let anyone get close enough to hurt her. Maybe it was time to just let everything go, just let herself go, even if it was only for one night.

“I uh, I mean, I’ve seen just about every emotion on your faces tonight. Anger, concern … desire? At least I think this is what desire looks like.”

“In case you’re unsure, let me clear things up for you.” Milo pulled her up so she stood in front of him. Even though she thought of herself as big, she felt dwarfed next to Milo.

When he leaned into her, her first instinct was to pull away, but Archer had backed up against her, cutting off any escape route. She began to wonder if the two of them had done this together before. They were gentle, but both of them held her firmly enough, making it clear she wasn’t going anywhere.

The heat from their bodies made Tessa’s heart pound and her entire lower half throb. It had been a long time since she’d felt this way. Archer’s hands rested lightly on her waist as he leaned in to nuzzle her hair. Milo’s big hand cupped her cheeks, his thumb rubbing sexy little circles. She swallowed hard, and suddenly found it difficult to breathe. Ever so slowly, he reached up to slide her glasses off. He folded them and handed them to Archer who placed them on the bedside table.

“What are you doing?” she managed to croak.

His hands immediately returned to cup her face, tilting her head up until her eyes met his. Those blue eyes had taken on a smoky tint, and she felt a shudder go through her body as she saw herself reflected in them.

“This. We’re doing this.” He bent his head slowly, giving her time to stop him, time to say no. But she didn’t want to stop him.
