Blurb:

Master carpenter, Martina “MJ” Jenkins, has built plenty of structures in her day, but none as sturdy as the walls she’s built around her heart. After crossing paths with a sexy U.S. Senator, with gorgeous brown eyes and a seductive smile, her resolve to stay unattached, crumbles. Martina is determined to steer clear, but the Senator’s kisses are too delicious to resist.

Third generation U.S. Senator, Paul Kendricks, faithfully represents his state and is loyal to the family’s political legacy. Still he yearns for a wife, children, and a new career far away from the political arena. Too bad the object of his desire is the one woman who wants nothing to do with commitment. But the sparks that fly between them can’t be ignored.

As Paul chips away at the wall Martina has built, can he convince her to put her fears aside and open her heart to love?

Excerpt:

Martina moved toward a pair of chairs and a small round table less than five feet away. She hated attending events where she had to get dressed up and sit quietly through a program. And when one of the speakers happened to be an enemy, it was like having to endure a root canal.

“Martina!”

She froze. Her breath lodged in her throat and hands fisted at her sides. That deep, baritone voice had always had an effect on her, even when she didn’t want it to and today was no different. Her pulse pounded an erratic cadence in her ears as a war raged within her on whether or not to turn around.

“You were brazen enough to spout out that nonsense in there, yet you’re not brave enough to look at me.”

The annoyance that consumed her only moments ago returned and she spun in the direction of the voice. But the smart retort dangling on the end of her tongue, dropped off. Instead, all she could do was stand cemented in place and stare at the man who stirred so many emotions within her.

Senator Paul Kendricks. Part of her wanted to pick up the small table near her leg and fling it at him. Whereas the other part of her was taken back to every one of her erotic dreams he had starred in.

She wanted to hate him. God, she wanted to hate him. She couldn’t. For reasons she didn’t want to revisit at the moment, she knew she would never hate him.

Martina took in his appearance, assessing his smooth dark skin, intense brown eyes, and those luscious lips that were tempting whether smiling or tilted down in a frown the way they were now.

Fury and sexual tension battled within her. On one hand, she wanted to wrap her hands around his thick neck and shake him. But on the other hand, she wanted to fall into him, feel his powerful arms wrapped around her while she tasted his sweet lips. She knew they were delicious because she’d tasted them before, on more than one occasion in fact.

Her gaze took in his perfectly groomed mustache. Normally he was clean-shaven, a preference for those in the Senate, but not a requirement. Though not today. Today the light sprinkle of scruff shadowing his cheek and chin, made him look even sexier than usual.

His broad shoulders and fit body were sheathed in a tailored suit that she knew cost more than she made in a week, made her remember. Made her remember how good-looking he was. Made her remember how being anywhere near him sent tingles through her body. And made her remember why seeing Paul up close and personal again wasn’t a good idea.

“Hi Senator Kendricks, I’m Peyton Jenkins. I’m so sorry for my cousin’s behavior. I assure you, she will not be returning to the event. She tends to speak before thinking sometimes and—”

“I’m well aware of Martina’s penchant for speaking her mind, even at the most inopportune times,” Paul said, his gaze never leaving Martina. “It’s good to see you again, Martina.”

The way her name slid out of his mouth sent a sweet thrill up her spine, licking her skin like a gentle breeze. She loathed that his voice still had the power to stop her in her tracks. What she hated, even more, was the desire radiating in his eyes. The same desire was coursing through her veins.

Ughhh, she growled silently, pissed that she was still attracted to the man.

“Too bad I can’t say the same about you.” Her throat tightened at the words that opposed what she truly felt inside. Her voice no longer carried the same annoyance from earlier. Instead, she sounded more breathy than she intended.

Damn him for looking so good.

“Hold up. Wait.” Peyton stood with her mouth hanging open, her gaze bouncing between them. “You two know each other?”

“As a matter of fact we do,” Paul volunteered. “Your cousin and I know each other very well.”

Walk It Off

My friend Claire has a way with words and I chuckled throughout this post. While reading, for a minute, I thought she was writing about me! I could so relate as I get back into my workout routine to get these couple of extra holiday pounds off!

I’m with ya, Claire!

Woman@Heart

It started with nibbling leftover Halloween candy — my two months of over-indulgence. Almond-cranberry stuffing, artichoke dip and a two-pound box of See’s candy (nuts and chews) combined forces to put me where I am today — toting those infamous seven pounds that many of us are supposed to gain during the holiday season.

I can’t say I didn’t enjoy myself during the eight weeks of tasting the fruits of the holidays – or at least the fruit-flavors of the holidays. Even though I wasn’t curling up with a bowl of strawberries or a plate of celery, I did learn a few things. For example, did you know that there are 1,050 fat-free calories in a 9.5-oz box of Hot Tamales? Me neither. I found out the hard way when my usually forgiving relax-fit jeans refused to zip up and the numbers on my digital scale boldly climbed to where…

Excerpt (Prologue):

“The rumor is three black boys killed your parents. Is it true?”

Perched on the edge of his cot, Noah Charleston lifted his eyes to look at the four half-men standing before him. The leader of the pack, Mitch, was sixteen with a baby face, braces and bad acne around his chin. His two muscles, twins Roger and Wylie, were about a year older at seventeen. Both were built like linebackers. Finally, the Whiz, or Matthew a slender fifteen year old with glasses that took up half of his face was the brain of the group.

“Answer him,” Roger prodded, stepping into the small cell.

Noah shrugged. “That was a year ago.”

“We can do something about that.” Mitch popped his gum. “Join us.”

Noah had heard about the “Avengers” as they dubbed themselves. They ruled the juvenile detention hall and dressed in their version of combat gear: khaki pants, boots and camouflage shirts. Even the counselors were afraid of them.

Noah kept to himself. Everyone pretty much left him alone. Except for today.

He looked up at them. “Do I have a choice?”

Wylie stepped forward. “Do you want me to help you make up your mind?”

“How about I help fix that ugly face of yours?” Noah threw back.

Wylie sprung at Noah. Noah jumped to his feet and sidestepped the much bigger guy. Then he bashed Wylie in the back of the head. Roger lunged at him.

“Quit it,” Mitch bellowed. “Leave him alone.”

Roger’s chest heaved but he backed off. His eyes held a threat. Noah met his gaze, daring him to bring it.

“I like your heart,” Mitch said. “We need you.”

“I like my own company,” Noah said.

“We have something you want,” the Whiz said. His voice was barely above a whisper. He wheezed his words as if he was always in need of an asthma pump.

“You don’t have—”

Noah’s eyes widened. The Whiz held a crumpled 3×5 photograph in his hand. Noah snatched it, “Where did you find this?”

“We have our ways,” Mitch bragged.

Noah squinted.

“I hacked into the computer system,” the Whiz said. This time he coughed at the end of his words. “I know who took your picture.”

“We’ve handled him.” Mitch’s tone was solemn.

“That’s why you should be thanking us,” Wyle said, rubbing the back of his head.

Noah looked at the photograph of his parents and closed his eyes to keep the tears from falling. It was his most prized possession. When he had been sent here to the juvenile home two months ago, Noah had placed it under his pillow before lunch. When he checked for it later that night, it had been gone. He searched everywhere but couldn’t find it. That was the first time since his parents’ funeral Noah had cried himself to sleep.

“Thank you,” he grounded out.

“Thank us by joining us,” Mitch said.

The Whiz held up a picture. It was an African-American by the name of Tony Billows who had taken it.

Noah clenched his fists. “Where is he?”

“In the hospital with some missing teeth,” Roger said.

“And a missing pinky,” Wylie added.

Noah blinked. He would have settled it with a well-deserved punch or two. Not doing Tony serious injury. “That was vicious.”

“It was a message. You mess with one of us you mess with us all. We’re a family,” Mitch said.

“The Avengers,” Wylie and Roger said in unison. They held out their fists. Noah had reservations but Mitch had used the magic word. Family. Noah wanted family. He made a fist and the boys all did a fist bump.

“The Avengers,” he said.

“Welcome,” Mitch said.

“Glad to have you,” The Whiz whispered. “Now, let’s get you some proper clothes and a haircut.”

Noah swallowed his reservations. He had a family again. Nothing else mattered.

BeJeweled: A Beautiful Blend

Hi All,

I’m pleased to have author Chelle Ramsey return to my blog! Chelle is introducing us to her latest release , BEJEWELED: A BEAUTIFUL BLEND. Let’s check it out!

MichelleRamsey_Bejeweled3_800px

 

BEJEWELED: A BEAUTIFUL BLEND

Olivia believes she can have it all.  A successful business and a loving husband. But his ex-wife is not ready to walk away, and continues to threaten any chance he and Olivia might have at happiness. When Olivia discovers she’s being stalked, secrets her mother took to the grave come creeping out.

The baby Nikki and Carlos have been planning is finally on the way. One problem…the paternity is at question, and Carlos is in the dark. To protect her secrets, Nikki’s ready to sever ties to both men that hold the key to her heart. But one half of her heart won’t let go, and the other half is willing to fight until the end. The birth of her child may lead to the death of her marriage.

One test has the power to determine the truth. One test will change their lives forever.

Deception will bring separation, and destiny will mend two broken hearts. And in the end, everyone must work together to create a beautiful blend.

Excerpt:

Pamela Dunham was married to a successful investment banker and was used to getting whatever she wanted. Because Wesley had not given in to her enticements she desired him all the more.

She sat up allowing her towel to drop down as she faced him with her breasts aiming towards him. She grabbed his hand, massaging it in the palm and absently pulling it towards her as she looked him in the eye.

“Why do you play so hard to get?” she asked, placing his hand on her breast.

Catching him off guard with her brashness, Wesley jerked his hand away as if he had been burned.

“Mrs. D, I don’t play hard to get. I’ve just got mad respect for you. I could never treat you like some chick in the streets. Besides, you’re a married woman and I try not to get caught up in extramarital affairs. Too, much drama. You feel me? Married,” he stated in a deep, sensual voice.

“A married woman who’s lonely and wanting you very much. And if I’m not mistaken, you’re a lonely young man who is in need of a little company. Someone has broken your heart and I have the TLC you need. Wesley, I’m not trying to start a relationship with you,” she said, rubbing her hands up his back. “I’ve already got one of those. This thing between us would just be sex between friends…no strings attached. Don’t resist, Wesley. I tell you what, tonight when you get off, meet me at Kit-Cat’s,” she said, referring to a popular jazz bar in downtown Atlanta. “We can have drinks and if the mood hits, I will get us a room for the night. And we’ll see where the evening takes us. I don’t have anywhere to be. My husband’s out of town,” she offered.

Wesley let out a small laugh. His heart lay with Nikki, but one thing was clear. Her loyalties lie with her husband. She had made that much clear. He began to seriously consider Pamela Dunham’s offer. This being a “good boy” thing wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. He was a man with needs after all. And if she was willing…

A Winter Rendezvous

Hi All,

I’m pleased to have author Té Russ on my blog today! Té is on a blog tour and stopped by to introduce us to her latest release, A WINTER RENDEZVOUS. Check it out!

A Winter Rendezvous Cover Art 2

Chrystal and Jackson meet while vacationing for the holidays and give into their attraction, sharing an incredible night together. Not expecting to see each other again, they are both shocked when they run into each other days later in the mostly unlikely place.

Both are hesitant to continue where they left off from their night in the mountains, but they quickly learn that they can’t seem to run from the inevitable. Their passion is hot enough to melt the snow outside, but can they overcome obstacles thrown in their path and create something that can last a lifetime?

Excerpt:

“Careful Chrystal,” he warned. “Besides, according to you it doesn’t seem like there’s much to discuss anyway. Since it wasn’t that amazing.”

He noticed her tense as he threw her own words back at her. Exhaling an exasperated sigh, she turned and looked him directly in the face.

“I was pissed, Jackson. And you know why.”

He took step forward, but made sure not to get to close. “That I understand. What I don’t understand…”

He stopped. This was not the time nor the place for this discussion, but Chrystal pushed.

What don’t you understand?”

He didn’t want to say it. Because it would reveal a part of him he generally didn’t let others see.

Vulnerability.

But she stood there, looking up at him with those big, beautiful brown eyes, and the words seemed to just fall out.

“What I don’t understand is why you would take off the way you did. Leaving nothing behind except for that sorry excuse for a note.”

Instantly, the remorse was evident on her face. “I freaked out,” she admitted. “I told you then that I’d never done anything like that before.”

He looked down, as she reached out and wrapped her hand around his forearm. “But, if I could go back…change things, I definitely would have stayed.”

Her soft touch, and the sincere tone in her voice, caused him to stifle a groan.

“You want me to break my rule, don’t you?”

Her face broke out into a naughty grin as she said, “It’s about to be a new year, maybe it’s time for a new rule.”

“Thirty seconds until midnight!”

They turned as someone shouted the announcement and people began counting down.

Jackson looked around, then grabbed Chrystal’s hand pulling her behind a large pillar, hiding them from everyone.

He looked down at her and noticed the heated, anticipated look in her eyes. He shook his head, but couldn’t stop himself from touching her. He touched his forehead to hers.

“This is a bad idea,” he said, as his hands caressed her hips.

“It wasn’t such a bad idea at the ski lodge,” she said pressing her body into his.

“Things were different at the ski lodge.”

She lifted her hands to his chest and he gripped her wrists.

10…9…8…7…6…

He stared at her for several more seconds and she watched him, waiting for his next move.

5…4…3…2…

He pushed her against the pillar, pinned her arms above her head, and crushed his mouth to hers, sucking her lip into his mouth.

Happy New Year!

The sounds around them were drowned out as he continued kissing her, plunging his tongue into her mouth. She moaned and kissed him back with the same amount of ferocity, if not more.

He knew he’d crossed a line that he’d vowed to never cross again. But he knew this moment was inevitable.

At the moment, he didn’t think about his past mistakes in a similar scenario. All he could think about was the woman pressing her body wantonly against him.

Consequences be damned.

When she doesn’t have her nose pressed deeply into a book or her fingers flying across the keyboard, this Texas wife and mother of three can be found jumping out of airplanes, cheering her husband on at the top of her lungs at MMA fights, buzzing down the interstate on the back of motorcycles, or kayaking.

Love Is. Blog Tour

Hi All!

Please join me in welcoming back author Tia Kelly to my blog! Tia is on a blog tour and she’s introducing us to her latest release – LOVE IS. Check it out!

It took a once-in-a-lifetime bond to teach her what love is, and a once-in-a-lifetime betrayal to show her what love is not… Love Is. A different kind of love story.

Above view of woman' || chr(39) || 's bare legs holding pillow between knees lying on bed with white sheets.

Diane Collins had big plans for her life, and hoops star Warren Scott was not among them. He doesn’t want to be the face of the NBA, and she doesn’t care that he is. His reluctance to be part of the limelight disarms her and the two embark on an unlikely friendship that becomes an even unlikelier romance.

Soon, his life is her life – filled with VIP treatment, parties and luxuries beyond Diane’s wildest imagination. But Warren is harboring a secret, and once it’s revealed Diane’s decision to stay or go could change the very fabric of who she thought she was.

Excerpt from Love Is:

“Good afternoon, Mr. Scott. Good day, Miss Collins,” the man said as she exited the elevator, and once her bags were removed, she watched Warren slip money into the man’s hand. They both nodded before the doors closed.

“I’ve never been greeted like that before when visiting friends. You know how to leave quite an impression,” Diane said once they were alone. Seeing him unnerved her, and the tension that had mounted between them since the day she left Jamaica faded.

Before she could get a good look at the surroundings, Warren opened his arms and she walked into them. Relieved. Sighing silently as she snuggled into his warm, comforting embrace.

“Thanks for coming,” he murmured.

She lifted her head and caught the worry in his eyes.

He kissed the top of her head and reached for her bag. “How was your flight?”

“A little bumpy. Glad I’m back on the ground now.”

“Says the woman that once couldn’t sit still during a storm in the sky.”

She laughed, keeping her eyes trained on how he moved in his bare feet with athletic grace across the hardwood floors.

“You know I’ll never want to fly coach ever again now. I better get this job just to support the travel upgrades. Limos to and from airports. First-class flights. Exclusive resorts and staying in this building the rest of the week…”

“Should I book you a room at a motel near the airport instead?” he asked, setting her bag down in the middle of his living room.

She paused, taking in her surroundings. Furniture was sparse, but the space didn’t feel bare, just minimalist in a sophisticated way. Creams, beiges and grays against natural white oak floors and dramatic high ceilings made her feel at peace. She recognized the Boston Harbor just outside his penthouse windows. Walking toward the view of the water, she pressed her hands on the side of the steel frames encasing the floor-to-ceiling windows, taking it all in. “This is simply amazing.”

“Ever been to Boston before?”

Diane looked back at him and shook her head. “Never had a reason to visit, but always wanted to check it out. The accent alone always fascinated me.”

“Anyone comment on your Texas drawl?”

“A few,” she said with a smile.

“I made reservations for…” He trailed off when she turned around.

She’d only meant to give him her undivided attention because they still had a few issues to resolve between them, but the heat in his eyes made her breath catch. He took three long steps toward her before pressing her back against the glass, kissing her until they both forgot what they were talking about. Until Diane forgot why she’d wanted to keep herself emotionally distant from him in the first place.

A woman wants what a woman wants

Quick-witted, sassy, construction worker, Jada (JJ) Jenkins, loves the finer things in life. She’d rather be in designer clothes and stilettos than sporting steel-toe boots and a hard hat. She hates getting dirty and worst, sweating. Jada’s ready to quit her job and marry a wealthy man who’s able to support her shopping addiction and her expensive taste. She’s not looking for love, only a comfortable lifestyle. What she doesn’t expect to find is a blue-eyed hunk with dimples and a disarming ability to throw her off her game.

For professional football player Zack Anderson, its love at first sight when he meets Jada. The fact that she’s a construction worker is even better. He wants a woman who’s not afraid to get down and dirty, someone who enjoys fishing, hiking and the great outdoors. He thinks he’s found that in Jada.

Before he loses his heart, will Zack discover that the last thing on this feisty steel-toe-boot-wearing-beauty’s mind is getting her hands dirty with love?
