Retired Marine, Mason Bennett, has two goals: adjust to civilian life and keep drama out of it. His focus is on his role as part-owner, along with his siblings, of Atlanta’s hottest nightclub. However, his attention shifts when the woman he has loved like a sister reenters his life and thoughts of a passionate kiss they shared hijacks his mind. Their connection is explosive. Feelings he’s tried to deny come to the forefront, and he’s tempted to do something he thought he would never do—cross that line from friends to lovers.

TV news anchor, London Alexander, is back home in Atlanta and ready to start a new chapter in her life. This time she hopes her future includes Mason, the man she has loved forever. She’s ready to step over the forbidden line that he’s drawn in their relationship.

Places in My Heart and Giveaway!

It’s always a pleasure having my author friends on my blog and today is no different! Author Sheryl Lister is on a blog tour with Write Now Literary Book Tours introducing her pre-release of PLACES IN MY HEART. Sheryl is currently doing a Pre-order Blitz and Contest that starts today! But more about the contest later. First, check out a sneak peek of PLACES IN MY HEART.

About The Book

Omar Drummond is a pro football superstar with a body that’s a pure work of art. But Morgan Gray is forbidden to act on their chemistry, or repeat their impulsive kiss. Proving her worth as a sports agent means securing the notorious celebrity as a client, not a lover. Yet between flowers, sweet notes and heady hotel interludes, Omar is shamelessly seducing her…

Other agents—and exes—have tried using Omar as a meal ticket, and he’s closed himself off from emotional entanglements. With Morgan, it’s a whole new playbook. Smart and tough, she can negotiate a contract and turn him on all in one go, and he craves more. But in matters of trust, he’s just fumbled badly. To win her he has to show her the man he can be away from the field and the limelight, and hope that this time they’re both playing for keeps.

Excerpt

Omar knew he had taken a risk showing up at Morgan’s office, but he was desperate. It had taken a lot to persuade Malcolm to share his sister’s information, especially since Omar had declined to say what had happened between them. He toyed with calling first, but changed his mind because he didn’t want to chance her refusing to see him. The woman seated outside Morgan’s office, whom he assumed was the assistant, greeted him with a wide smile and an exaggerated sway of her hips as she led him to the office. Omar ignored the not-so-subtle brush of her breasts against his arm when she turned to leave. In his peripheral vision, he noticed the slight rise in Morgan’s eyebrow and knew she’d seen it, too. He waited until the woman closed the door before turning to face Morgan.

Morgan folded her arms. “What are you doing here?”

“Hello to you, too,” he said.

An embarrassed expression crossed her face. “Sorry. Have a seat.”

Omar took the chair opposite her desk. “I apologize for stopping by without calling, but I figured you wouldn’t see me otherwise.”

“You were probably right. How do you know I won’t call security to throw you out now?”

“I don’t, but I’m counting on your love of football to work in my favor.” They engaged in a stare-down for several seconds until she looked away first.

“How did you know where I worked?”

“Malcolm.” She frowned and he added, “If it’s any consolation, he adamantly refused to divulge your home address.”

“Well, maybe I won’t kill him, after all.”

He chuckled.

“Since you went through all this trouble, I guess I can spare you five minutes.”

Omar knew the mention of football would rouse her curiosity. “I’d like to talk to you about a business proposition.”

“What does that have to do with football?”

“My contract is up for renewal in six weeks and—”

“Don’t you have an agent? If memory serves me correctly, you have one of the best agents around.”

“Things aren’t always as they seem.”

She sat up straight. “What are you saying?”

“I’m saying it’s time for a change, and I’d like you to negotiate my upcoming contract. You’re an attorney and, according to your brother, you know football like you’ve played it all your life.”

Her eyes lit up and her mouth fell open. “Are you serious? Wait a minute.” She sat back again and angled her head. “What about your current agent? Did he dump you or something?”

Omar sighed. “No.” There was more to it, but he would only tell her if she agreed to represent him.

Morgan narrowed her eyes. “There are dozens of sports agents out there, and I’m certain any one of them would be happy to take you on, especially with your numbers from last year. Yet you’re in my office.”

He smiled. “You checked my stats? So, you’re admitting I’ve got game?”

A rush of color darkened her face. “Why me?” she asked, ignoring his questions.

“You want to be an agent, and I need one.” He leaned forward and whispered, “And I know you passed the sport’s agent certification test. It’s a win-win situation for both of us.”

“On second thought, I am going to kill Malcolm,” she muttered.

“I need your help, Morgan. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t.”

“I have to think about this.” She turned slightly in her chair and stared out the window, and then back at him. “You realize I already have a job. And I’m working on a case.”

Omar nodded. “I understand, and I have no problems working around your schedule.”

“Even on weekends or late evenings.”

“Anytime.”

“I see.” She went back to staring out the window.

He could almost hear the wheels turning in her head. She bit down on her lip, drawing his attention and reminding him how much he enjoyed kissing her.

Finally she angled her head his direction. “I’ll agree on one condition.”

“What’s that?”

“You keep your hands and lips to yourself. No more kisses.”

Omar groaned inwardly. There was no way he could go without kissing her. In fact, it had been the first thing on his mind from the moment he saw her today. “Morgan—”

“No. More. Kisses,” she repeated.

A Passionate Kiss and Giveaway!

Hi All!

I’ve had a blast collaborating with my author friends Candace Shaw and Delaney Diamond to bring you our new book series – The Bennett Triplets – which is now available! The triplets, Mason, Harper and Cameron, own the hottest night club in Atlanta. While overseeing the operations of Club Masquerade, they each find love when they least expect.

You don’t want to miss out on this series! NOTE: The stories take place at the same time and can be read in any order.

Not only are the books available, but we have a fun scavenger hunt giveaway too! But first, here’s another little peek at my contribution to the series – A PASSIONATE KISS.

About A Passionate Kiss

apassionatekiss-2-small

Retired Marine, Mason Bennett, has two goals: adjust to civilian life and keep drama out of it. His focus is on his role as part-owner, along with his siblings, of Atlanta’s hottest nightclub. However, his attention shifts when the woman he has loved like a sister reenters his life and thoughts of a passionate kiss they shared hijacks his mind. Their connection is explosive. Feelings he’s tried to deny come to the forefront, and he’s tempted to do something he thought he would never do—cross that line from friends to lovers.

TV news anchor, London Alexander, is back home in Atlanta and ready to start a new chapter in her life. This time she hopes her future includes Mason, the man she has loved forever. She’s ready to step over the forbidden line that he’s drawn in their relationship.

Will taking a chance on love lead to a happily-ever-after? Or will risking their friendship leave them both with broken hearts?

Excerpt:

“Did I tell you how beautiful you looked tonight?”

“You might have mentioned it a time or two.”

They stood there, staring into each other’s eyes, and London wondered what he was thinking. She knew he wasn’t planning to change his mind about their next steps—they both were more than ready—but she wasn’t sure what to make of his hesitation.

“God, you mean so much to me.” His voice was thick with emotion.

Her body tightened with desire. “I feel the same about you.”

It seemed he wanted to say more and opened his mouth, but closed it just as fast. Sometimes she didn’t know what to make of him, but right now was not one of those times. The love shining in his eyes was so intense, London could feel it deep in her soul. He didn’t need to say anything more.

She stepped out of his hold and reached for the zipper of her dress, but Mason pulled her back to him.

“I’ll take care of that for you.” His voice was low and sexy, his warm breath a feather against her neck. “I’ve been waiting all night to get you out of this dress.”

Sneak Peek – A Passionate Kiss

Hi All,

This has been a busy summer! While working on my next two series (Jenkins & Sons Construction and Atlanta’s Finest), I have been collaborating with two dear author friends of mine – Delaney Diamond and Candace Shaw. If you have been following my blog or if you’re on my email mailing list, you already know about The Bennett Triplets series.

Mark your calendars! The Bennett Triplets are coming August 26, 2016!

While we patiently wait for August 26th, here’s a sneak peek at A PASSIONATE KISS.

apassionatekiss-2-small

Retired Marine, Mason Bennett, has two goals: adjust to civilian life and keep drama out of it. His focus is on his role as part-owner, along with his siblings, of Atlanta’s hottest nightclub. However, his attention shifts when the woman he has loved like a sister reenters his life and thoughts of a passionate kiss they shared hijacks his mind. Their connection is explosive. Feelings he’s tried to deny come to the forefront, and he’s tempted to do something he thought he would never do—cross that line from friends to lovers.

TV news anchor, London Alexander, is back home in Atlanta and ready to start a new chapter in her life. This time she hopes her future includes Mason, the man she has loved forever. She’s ready to step over the forbidden line that he’s drawn in their relationship.

Will taking a chance on love lead to a happily-ever-after? Or will risking their friendship leave them both with broken hearts?

Excerpt:

Who is she?

Mason rubbed his chin, hoping she’d glance into the camera so he could see her face clearly. There was something so familiar about her. As if reading his mind, she turned her head slightly and he sucked in a breath. Large expressive eyes, high cheekbones, and a mouth he would never forget was on full display. He’d recognize those gorgeous lips anywhere.

But something wasn’t right. Something had her spooked.

“Ham, hold up. I know her. I’m on my way,” Mason said into his mouthpiece and hurried to the stairs.

He was a little surprised Hamilton hadn’t recognized London Alexander, Harper’s best friend. From what Mason understood, she had been to the club plenty of times when Mason’s parents managed the facility and Hamilton worked security.

Seconds later, Mason slowed and London met his gaze. Guilt stabbed him in the chest. She was the last person he should be looking at with interest, but damn if she didn’t look sexy in the fitted red tank top and black leggings molded around her narrow hips and shapely legs. Considering it was early afternoon on a weekday, he was surprised to see her, and in running gear at that.

“Mase,” she breathed, her husky voice feeling like a feather brushing against his skin.

Mason heard a little wheezing coming from her, but she didn’t look as if she was having an asthma attack, something she suffered with when they were kids. Still staring, what he couldn’t get over was how different she looked. She never wore her hair super long, but the last time he’d seen her, it brushed her shoulders. Now the pixie cut transformed her whole appearance, the style seeming as if it were made for her.

When her hand went to her chest, as if trying to catch her breath, and she glanced back at the door, all of Mason’s protective instincts kicked in.

“What’s wrong?” He touched her arm. She was shivering. “What happened?”

Fool For You by Rina Gray

Hi All!

I’m excited to have author Rina Gray on my blog today! Rina has just released her debut novel – FOOL FOR YOU! Here’s a little peek:

Fool for You - Rina Gray

Blurb:

Sports journalist Melanie Foster has achieved most of her goals: Bomb.com job—check. Tomboy-to- smoking-hot makeover—check. Convince her best friend, Damien Richards, to slide a ring on her finger and father her two-point- five kids—not so much. When she activates Operation: I’m Gonna Make You Love Me, she never imagines her BFF already has plans to stroll down the wedding aisle with another woman.

Damien is in the middle of crisis mode. The non-profit for young athletes at which he volunteers is in financial trouble. He’ll pull out all the stops to rescue the organization that saved his life after his career-ending injury—even if it means sacrificing his personal happiness.

But when he finally wakes up to love and the very non-friendly feelings he’s long held for Mel, it might just be too late. Damien must convince her that he’s worth the risk and turn the tables to show her he’s the one ready to be a fool for love. Sports journalist Melanie Foster has achieved most of her goals: Bomb.com job—check.

Excerpt:

The lake twinkled in the wake of the sinking sun. A large swatch of blue sky and white clouds hovered just above the water, and the pine trees surrounding the lake gave it a private, exclusive feel. Not for the rich, but for lovers only.

Melanie imagined long summer days and hot summer nights wrapped in Damien’s arms. One day. Soon.

Towels in hand, Melanie and Damien stood on the pier, peering into the dark-blue water.

She leaned against the wood railing. “You go in first.” She waved to the lake. “Tell me how it is.”

“Nope. We’re jumping in together.”

“No, no. I may have been a bit hasty in my enthusiasm. The temperature is starting to drop.”

He crossed his arms. “If you’re afraid of getting too cold or too wet, don’t worry … I’ll keep you warm,” he said in a voice that was smooth, provocative, and far too dangerous.

Her stomach clenched at innuendo he probably didn’t realize he’d made.

Melanie dropped the towel near her feet. “I just want you to test the waters and tell me how it is.”

He shook his head again.

“Fine.” She raised a brow, knowing he would have to comply with their rule when they couldn’t agree on something. “Rock, paper, scissors.”

Damien chuckled and lifted his fist above his palm. “Fine.”

They stared at each other for a moment, then grinned. “Rock, paper, scissors, shoot!” they both shouted.

Melanie squeezed her fist, choosing rock, and scowled when she saw Damien’s hand flat against his other.

“Paper covers rock.” Stating the obvious, he jerked his head toward the lake. “Ladies first.”

“Best two out of three?”

“Suuuure, Melanie,” he said in a saccharine voice. She knew he would give her shit about this later, but she didn’t care. She wasn’t getting in that cold water first.

“Rock, paper, scissors, shoot!”

She pumped her fist in the air when her rock beat Damien’s scissors.

“This is for the championship. The World Series. The Super Bowl. The—”

“Quit stalling and go already,” Damien’s deep voice interrupted.

“All right. All right. Hold your horses, D.” They stared at each other, as if they could guess what the other would choose, and played again.

Her paper beat his rock.

“Yes! I’m the winner.” She danced around him, celebrating her victory. “I just kicked your—ahh!” she screamed.

Damien had scooped her into his muscular arms and smiled. “Like I said, we’re jumping in together.”

Melanie was too shocked to protest as he casually stepped off the edge of the pier and heaved them both into the water.

She broke above the surface and took a gulp of breath to clear her lungs. Damien’s hands curled around her ankle.

“No you don’t!” She yanked her leg away, dipped under the water, and pretended to go for his manhood.

Damien rushed above the water, his chest heaving. “Damn, Mel. You never play fair.”

“I play to win. You taught me that.” She grinned and swam closer to him.

Tendrils of water dripped from his chiseled face to his immaculate chest, daring her to trace the trail with her tongue.

Despite the dwindling light, Damien’s eyes shone like the North Star. Staring in his eyes, she’d never be lost.

The vein in his neck throbbed, and her mouth went dry. She was parched, from years and years of being near the well of deep, cool water that was Damien, yet never having the chance to quench her thirst. And if she had the chance, she wouldn’t sip. She would gulp him all the way down until she felt it in her belly.

About the Book

another_mans_treasure_jpg

Graphic artist Trinity Hargrove never knew real passion until she sleeps with her boss’s son. Mistake number one. Mistake number two…liking it too much. But they agreed to only one night. Simple enough, right? Wrong. He may be out of her bed, but their intense night together still burns in her memories. As long as she keeps her distance from the oh-so-desirable Xander Duval, everything will be okay. Unfortunately, fate won’t go along with her plan.

Restaurateur Xander Duval agrees to Trinity’s “one night” stipulation, but only in theory. He has no intentions of not being with her again. Especially when his mind—nor body—will allow him to forget the fire that blazed between them until the wee hours of the morning. When Trinity is injured in an automobile accident, he jumps at the opportunity to be her arms and legs. He plans to show her just how determined he is to make her his…for far longer than just one night.

What readers are saying:

Definitely enjoyed reading Michael and Peyton’s story. I continue to fall further in love with Sharon Cooper’s “Jenkins Family” series. Hopefully it doesn’t end with book five. I would love to read more on Jerry and Nick to see how this family rolls from a male perspective. If you’ve read the first four and half books in this series, delay no longer to one click “Seducing the Boss Lady”. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting the Jenkins clan, don’t sleep on this series any longer! Tina Y.

Drama, love, laugh and tears the author touched on each emotion and then some. The relationship between the two main characters was so life like and interesting. I love the end where the heroine said – you don’t need an elaborate wedding to have a happy marriage. Finding the person that makes you happy to be yourself and accepts you is one of the few things the author touched on. I definitely say this is a must read. Kindle Reader

You did it again. Even though I always have a good idea how the story will end, I absolutely love the story between the beginning and the end. It is a great and strong love story with a few twist and turns between. The characters are strong and independent, but they also have a side to them that shows they can be vulnerable and are afraid to show it. Thank you for a true love story and bring on the next one.  Jacqueline P.

Walking in Peace

Those who have followed my blog for a few years know that every now and then I share random thoughts. Today is one of those days.

I still start my day with morning devotion, and a cup of tea, coffee or sometimes just water, meditating on how blessed I am and what I want to accomplish that day. At any rate, today I was reading from a devotional and the subject was – Your Purpose Will Be Accompanied by Peace. It basically discussed how many of us walk through life asking questions like: What am I supposed to do with my life? What’s my purpose? What does God want me to do?

keep calm

Occasionally I’ll ask myself questions like these, hoping I’m on the right track, but not knowing for sure. According to the devotion in The Word for You Today, God leads us through our life’s purpose through our gifts that we perform easily (whether with formal training or not). Do what you do well and watch God confirm it by blessing your endeavors. It went on to say something like, don’t waste time trying to do what you’re not gifted to do. If what you’re doing is making you miserable and you go into it with anxiety, it might not be what you’re supposed to be doing. I thought that was so powerful.

The devotional referenced the Bible verse – Isaiah 55:12 (NIV)- “You will go out in joy, and be led forth with peace.” Observe the things that you do well and that you enjoy doing and watch God work through you. I think another part of the devotion that really resonated with me today was when it said something like, trust God’s ability in you and don’t be afraid to be unique, be you. “God has a specific place and a specific plan for each of us.” I had to quote that part to make sure I got it right because I think that’s so important for all of us to remember.

Another question was posed in the devotion: “How will you know you’re in the right place fulfilling His plan?”

The simple answer: You’ll have peace.

I know I want to live a peace-filled life, but what about you? Are you doing what you feel you were meant to be doing? Are you walking in your purpose? Are you walking in peace?

New Release – Seducing the Boss Lady!

Hi All,

It’s official – release day for SEDUCING THE BOSS LADY!

SeducingBossLady 800x533

If you have read the first four books in the Jenkins Family Series, then I’m sure you remember Peyton Jenkins. She’s the oldest of the Jenkins’ girls, as well as an electrician and the senior manager of Jenkins & Sons Construction. Over the last couple of years, Peyton has stood by and watched her sister and cousins find the loves of their lives. Now it’s her turn. When Peyton first meets Michael Cutter, it’s not exactly love at first sight, but Michael is not a man who can be easily ignored.

Here’s their story.

Blurb:

Master electrician, Peyton Jenkins, is tired of being the responsible Jenkins’ girl. She’s ready to hand over the reins of the family business for a chance to live life and find love. However, fear of getting hurt again keeps her from letting down her guard. That is until her world intersects with bad-boy, Michael Cutter. Their sparks ignite a passion that can’t be denied.

Private investigator, Michael Cutter, has no intention of falling for another pretty face, not even someone as beautiful as Peyton. But her smokin’ hot body and sass can’t be ignored. She desires love and commitment, yet the sins of his father continue to haunt Michael, deterring him from pursuing any type of relationship other than a casual fling.

Will their pasts keep them from taking a chance on love? And will love be enough to heal old wounds?

Excerpt:

Minutes later, Michael handed Peyton the whipped cream and strawberries while he climbed the stairs with her luggage. He couldn’t wait to get her naked and into his bed, and not necessarily in that order.

Michael guided her down the hallway to his bedroom and pushed open the door. Setting her bags inside the room, he flipped the two switches against the wall. One bathed the room with dim lighting from the bedside table lamps. The other controlled the room’s audio system. The sound of Boney James melodic saxophone flowed softly around the room through the hidden speakers in the ceiling.

“Come on in and make yourself comfortable.”

Peyton set the props next to the lamp on the bedside table, closest to the door, and slowly glanced around the space. “This room is huge. Ohhh and you have a fireplace. I’ve always wanted one in my bedroom.” The awe in her voice had him sticking his chest out more, glad that she liked the space that was probably more masculine than she was accustomed to. His large, king sized bed made of a dark cherry wood, took up much of the space. A small reading area, comprised of his favorite wide chair and a round table, sat near the fireplace.

“I’ll get us a fire going and warm it up in here,” Michael said when Peyton stepped away from the fireplace and roamed around the bedroom, studying the artwork he had on the walls. Michael bent to place a log in the fireplace.

A slight tremble of his hands when he added the log, had him chuckling to himself. This was the first time he’d ever brought a woman to his home, and never had one shared his bed. Not even Octavia. He preferred to go to a woman’s place not only because of Michaela but because he didn’t want any woman getting too comfortable in his space. But Peyton wasn’t just any woman. He knew there was something special about her from the moment they met.

Michael pulled the flimsy fireplace screen together and stood. “If you want, you ca…” His words lodged inside of his throat when he turned to find Peyton stretched out on his bed in the skimpiest bra and panty set he’d ever seen on a woman.

“You said to make myself comfortable.” The sexy purr of her voice had him lifting his T-shirt over his head and tossing it to the floor.

“I did, didn’t I?”
