Hello 2021!

Well February will certainly go down in Texas history! I left Alaska to retire in Texas especially for the less dramatic winters and what happens? We get down to -4 degrees in a winter storm. I can guarantee you I never thought I’d see that in NE Texas! And it snowed twice! Many years Texas never sees snow!  

 Last week it was as high as 80 degrees and melting this author into a puddle. Weather Whiplash!

Anyway, despite the excitement of broken water pipes, loss of electricity, and taking out my “Alaska” clothes from the back of the closet, the month is gone and I have no idea where it went!

But, regardless of the craziness of the month’s weather, I was able to put out book 3 of Safe and Secure, Saving Ivy.

First, she stole his heart and left him bleeding, then she stole from the Mob. Now he is the only one who can save her. If he will.

Passions burn hot when Kaden rescues Ivy from kidnappers, but she leaves without a word when her fears overcome her. Amid new chaos, Ivy reappears with the mob on her tail and nowhere to run but to Kaden. He will protect her. 

It has been a year since sexy as sin, heiress Ivy Linton made the mistake of leaving Kaden’s protection and his bed. When a someone wants her dead or alive, she rushes to the only man who can rock her world and keep her safe.

Kaden ignored his instincts and was too gentle the first time, but he won’t make that mistake again. He wants all of Ivy, and he won’t accept less. To keep her safe, she must agree to his rules and follow his commands, in and out of bed, or there will be consequences.  The price is high, and he wants her first payment upfront.

Kaden shook his head as he pulled Ivy into his arms. “Hush, sweetheart. I don’t have a girlfriend. Why would I when I was waiting for you to figure out you belong right here in my arms?”

“Really?” She had to see his face. “You haven’t moved on? You still want me? After I left for so long?”

“Oh, I still want you, but do you want me? You chose to leave without talking. And you need to realize the rules governing my life haven’t changed. My expectations are what they were when you met me and when you walked away from me.”

“But not because we weren’t good together. I left to find out how I really felt about my whole life. Rules?” but she could feel her face heating up. “I’m not sure I remember any rules.”

“Ivy, you know there are things important in my life. I live by certain rules, and you did too. I’ll refresh your memory later. For now, are you coming back to stay, play, or just passing through?”

“That isn’t what I did, Kaden. I wasn’t just playing around. I needed the space.”

“From us?”

“From everything.

“I’m glad you understood when you needed to take a step back to think about those things, but I expected better. We deserved better. There should have been a real conversation, not a bolt to the nearest exit.”

“I know. I’m sorry I didn’t know how to tell you. I couldn’t explain my feelings because I didn’t understand them myself. I panicked.”

“If I take you back now, you have to agree to my way of handling things.”

“Kaden, I can take care of myself. A relationship with you doesn’t mean I’m giving up my autonomy.”

He smiled and hugged her tight again. “Good, because I don’t want a clingy woman in my life, but when I say something is for your safety or health, you will have to trust me.”

“You mean if I don’t see the health or safety hazard myself.”

“I mean, if I say there is a problem, you believe me.”

“Of course. When have I not listened?”

“Montana? Here, last year, when I said I knew there was a problem and going home wasn’t safe. Sharlee offered her home, you accepted­­ then disappeared. We tracked you until you got home but do you know what that did to me?”

Ivy shook her head. “Not then, but as I figured things out in my mind, I realized what happened. I was scared.” She hoped her expression showed how she’d beg for his forgiveness if necessary.

Kaden brushed Ivy’s wind tousled hair away from her face. She ached at the seriousness of the man she knew she loved. “When you’re confused or have questions, you aren’t going to run off and hide; you will come talk to me.” Not a question.


“And I’m the boss when one is needed.”

“Oh, but… Um, okay. That’s acceptable.”

Kaden cocked his head to the side and openly scrutinized Ivy. “You don’t sound sure.”

“I am. It’s just a big step. I like to be my own boss, but I miss you so much it hurts. I want to agree with your way of doing things, but I’m afraid I don’t know how to let go. What if I can’t?”

“Ivy, do you want to be with me?”

Ivy’s shoulder muscles, held tight, seemed to tighten even more. “Isn’t that what I’ve been saying? But what if I can’t be all you want?”

“Is that a formal commitment? Because I want you, but I’ve already gone through the pain of losing you once. I won’t do it again.” He pulled back to stare into Ivy’s face.

“I suppose I am if there is an “us.”

“Oh, there’s an “us” sweetheart. It has taken you a while to work it out, but there has always been an us. You’ve just been on a long hiatus but no more, understand? I need you in my life every day, not just when it’s convenient. If you stay, there is no leaving. We will move heaven and earth to make this relationship work. I’m in for the long haul. If you stay, so are you.”

The fearful uncertainty vanished in the wake of Ivy’s growing annoyance. “I told you. I didn’t leave you because it was convenient. Nothing in my life has been convenient in the last year and a half. Don’t be such an ass.”

Kaden threw his head back and laughed without restraint. “I have missed you, honey.”

The irritation melted away in a smile. “I’ve missed you, too.”

His head swooped closer and warm kisses tickled Ivy’s lips. Gentle pressure gave way to a deeper, probing kiss, his tongue showing a slight impatience to enter her warmth. Before his libido was too high and his control was gone, he lifted his head.

“And you are due one whopper of a spanking for leaving me hanging for so long.”

Now, on to MARCH!


This is the 3rd book in the series and I had a blast writing it. It took me two weeks longer than I had hoped but that’s fine, I love how it turned out. I hope you do too!

First, she stole his heart and left him bleeding. Then she stole from the Mob. Now he is the only one who can save her. Will his price be too steep for Ivy to pay?

Kaden was perfect for super-rich, too spoiled Ivy Linton. When Kaden rescued Ivy and then took her home, it was soon obvious to all that they were falling in love. Soon, however, the realities of the dangerous nature of his job frightened her. Her own crazy life was already scary enough, so Ivy left one evening without a word. She struggled to overcome the nightmares, the loneliness, and the loss of the only man she had ever loved. Now, a year later, the old worries were gone, but new troubles have emerged. Her mother is married to a mob boss, his second in command wants her, and she witnessed him commit murder. So, what should she do? Steal important information for life insurance and run like hell to the only safe person she knows.

Ivy was surrounded by trouble, but that’s what he was trained to deal with in the military and now with Reynaud and Associates. So when Ivy left without a word a year ago, he was crushed but let her go expecting her to return. She didn’t, until now. Amid the chaos of a bombing, his girl shows up full of secrets and the Mob on her tail, but she can still rock his world with a look. He was too gentle the first time. Now he must take control if he is going to keep her safe. And this time, he would make sure she stayed.


Kaden spoke his tone heavy with censorship. “So, you dated—”

“No, I hung out with JJ. We never dated. He often dropped by the gaming room, and I would end up leaving because they got caught up in something or other, and he would tell me to go home. I did because I wasn’t interested in what they were doing. After a few weeks, it became obvious that my first impressions were right. JJ was nice enough, but he forgot about me easily. I could have murdered someone, and he wouldn’t have known. Not like…” she stopped talking, but Kaden knew what she had been about to say. “Why are you grilling me?”

Kaden ignored the last question. “He didn’t pay attention to you like I did.”

“Yes.” The air was still. “Look, maybe this wasn’t such a good idea. I’m not ready for this. Being with you is… intense.”

Kaden reached over and touched her cheek, sliding his fingers down her smooth skin. “Yes, you are, sweetheart. You’ve taken the first, hardest step. The rest will be easier.”

“Promises, promises.”

Her attempt at being jovial fell flat when the desperation in her eyes met his searching ones. He nodded an unvoiced decision and stood with determination.

“I’m going to feed you, spank you, and then bed you. Do you have any objections?”

His eyebrow quirked, daring her to disagree. Heat pooled in Ivy’s eyes, and he imagined her core was feeling the tension as well. Watching her squirm reminded him of when she would rub her legs together to relieve the tingle. Her lips tipped up on one side.

“We can skip dinner and the rest,” her voice seductively hopeful.

Kaden laughed. “I think you’ve been skipping too many dinners lately, woman, and I intend you don’t skip too many more. And the spanking is something you need. We both do.” He grabbed her hand and pulled her close. “I’ll ravage you soon enough. You owe me a helluva lot of makeup.”

He took her lips with his, falling into the kiss, drawing sweet nectar from them. As the caress deepened, Kaden drew back with a moan of reluctance. Ivy released a sigh as her answering protest.

“Soon, baby. First things first.”

Eyes Wide Open

Make no mistake, there is plenty of evidence behind this RWA Banning of Blushing Books but I encourage you to ask around to other authors who have published with this company and any other publishing companies owned and operated by the same owner. Ask for advise and, if they want to share, their personal accounts of dealing with BB or any of their other publishing companies under ABCD Graphics and Design. Do the research on any publisher you would like to do business with. I didn’t.

I was worried about indie-publishing outside a group but 8 months after I left this company and took my future books with me I can say I am beginning to realize the quick potential of exponentially increasing my profits while lowering my stress and keeping ALL my rights.

Not all publishing companies are like this one.

I leave this notice here for your edification. Remember, EYES WIDE OPEN.

Below notice was copied in it’s entirety from RWA.

Notice Regarding Blushing Books

On June 12, 2019, Blushing Books was placed on six-month probation from RWA’s Qualifying Markets list for violating the sections of RWA’s Industry Code of Conduct that state: 

  • Honesty and Integrity. An Industry Professional shall perform his/her duties with honesty and integrity. The Industry Professional shall not mislead, deceive, dupe, defraud or victimize clients, members of the organization, the general public, or any person with whom RWA does business as an Association.
  • Information. An Industry Professional shall keep each author apprised of all matters relating to their agreements and promptly respond to the author’s reasonable requests for information.

On September 23, 2020 RWA reached out to the publisher to request information on the steps taken to resolve the Industry Code violations and to request an updated boilerplate contract to determine if the contract met our standards to be included on the Qualifying Markets list. RWA received no response for 60 days. As a result, Blushing Books has been banned from the Qualifying Markets list for a minimum of three years. They will not be able to participate in RWA events or publications during this time. Pursuant to RWA Policy, Blushing Books may reapply for inclusion on the Qualifying Markets list after three years, provided that the prior Industry Code violation and any Code of Ethics violation(s) have been dealt with to RWA’s satisfaction and that no other violations have occurred in the interim.

Because RWA was in a period of significant transition in 2020 and a review of the publisher’s probationary status was not undertaken in December of 2019 as it should have been, RWA considers this ban to be effective retroactively as of December 12, 2019, making the expiration of the three-year period be on December 12, 2022. 

Blushing Books was notified of the above on December 4, 2020.

SEAL of Refuge

SEAL of Refuge (Guardians of Refuge Book 1)

by Alyssa Bailey

“You’re going to be trouble, aren’t you, Sweetheart?”

Alesha Campbell loves her island home in Southeast Alaska, but after a sudden break up with her egotistical boyfriend, she’d feared she might not find a husband until she met Navy SEAL Zayden Wellesley. The widowed Commander extricated her from a sticky situation and stole her heart. Now he has returned to the island with three unexpected surprises.

The Navy offers Commander Zayden Wellesley the career opportunity of a lifetime. He accepts. On a recon trip to Alaska, he meets the woman he never knew he needed and sets about wooing her. Things are going well over the short trip except for one little snag: He neglected to inform her he had roommates.

Zed planned to tell Alli before she found out on her own; however, his roommates had other ideas. And Alli is not happy.

 Can Zayden save his career and his budding relationship without upsetting the delicate balance he was already maintaining?



She looked longingly at him and ran her finger across his chest. “Zayden…” she whimpered.

“I know, sweetheart, I need it too.” He reached to pull her leggings and underwear off. “Straddle me.” He positioned her over his powerful thighs facing him.

Alli had no problem complying with this request. She slid her legs apart and settled into position. It was a little embarrassing, but she craved his touch more than she felt awkward. Zed lightly tapped her puffy labia, playing with her sensitive bits.

“So wet and ready for me. Such a sexy girl. You know I always ache for you. I don’t think my cock has been at ease since I met you.”

Going to work rubbing her clit, he placed one rough finger and then two inside her sheath. He brought his arousal coated fingers to her bottom, easing his legs apart enough to open her cheeks wider so he could tease the muscle ring there. Alli had had no one touch her there before Zed, and she couldn’t believe how it turned her on. She held as still as she could to encourage more play. When he didn’t breach her opening, she groaned her frustration. He patted her hot wet center, and the sting had her suck in air noisily.

“My time, baby.”

Alli couldn’t believe how amazing the bottom sensations were and how tightly sprung it made her.

“You’re awfully greedy for a woman who just barely skirted having her ass addressed for her misbehavior.”

He swatted her butt twice, and she made a new round of desperate whimpers.

“Zed, please.”

Placing Alli on her feet, Zed stood. He flipped her over the arm of her sofa and scolded, “Don’t move.”

The fast rasp of his zipper as it raced down its track heightened her awareness. She heard the belt buckle rattle as she took the belt off. Her core twitched, her bottom followed suit.

“What did I say to you?”

“Sorry, sorry, I can’t help it.”

She heard the leather cut through the air, causing a breeze. “Ahh. Okay, I’m trying.”

Warm hands landed on her hips, holding her steady, caressing her ass. Alli wiggled her bottom in her eagerness. He swatted her ass again, leaving a burn that heated her up more. 

“You just have to be an imp, don’t you? I think it’s in your DNA.”

“How did you guess?”

 He landed an ouchy, stinging stripe down but then tossed his belt to the floor. His hands rubbed the sting and intensified it.

When Zed hesitated, Alli groaned her frustration. “Zayden.”

Her desperate attempt at pointing a neon sign over her dark entrance encouraged Zayden to take it. Her cream was scooped up, and her entrance was coated as was his cock. He breached Alli’s bottom hole, piercing deep down to her core, his ball bouncing off her ass.

Sales Blurb:

An abusive childhood and an accident in his teens left stallion-shifter, Malcolm Patterson, with a distrust for his father and a lot of holes in his memory. When his dad passes away, Malcolm returns to Horse Mountain to fulfill his obligation to settle his old man’s affairs but finds the shifter community’s near hero-worship of the late doctor disquieting. He’s further shaken to meet a curvy beauty at the funeral who makes his heart gallop and his primal instincts take over.

Suki Marks has been in love with handsome and noble Malcolm Patterson ever since he saved her from bullies who called her an abomination when she was ten. He was the first person to be straight with her about the reasons some people shunned her family and he was quick to debunk those prejudices as the ignorant folktales and stupid superstitions they were. Even after Malcolm graduated high school and left town, she couldn’t forget him, but becoming Doctor Patterson’s live-in nurse in his last year of life was a coincidence. She never expected to be named in the wealthy physician’s will.

Malcolm assumed he’d be disinherited, but even from the after-life, his father continues to turn the knife, using his will to set up an elaborate scheme to taint Malcolm’s feelings for the woman who might be his fated mate. To make matters worse, a dangerous shifter-purist movement is brewing among a small segment of the Horse Mountain Clan, and they’re determined to prevent Suki from passing on her genes to a new generation. Will Malcolm be able to work through his past in time to secure his and Suki’s future?

Warning: Saving Suki is a smoking hot romance with graphic, put-you-in-the-moment love scenes. If you’re offended by sexual language, you might want to consider another book. The book can stand alone without reading the others in the series, but reading Horse Mountain Shifters 1-3, will add to the enjoyment of the experience.

Take a sweet bite:


A sorrowful expression crossed her face and he knew he’d already said too much about his unusual upbringing. As he contemplated a way to lighten the mood again, she found the answer without saying a word, reaching up to her shoulder and placing her hand over his. A squeezing sensation in his chest complimented the haze rolling over his rationality. So many mixed emotions vexed him since his return, especially the anger and regret he’d tried his best to lock away. Her tiny gesture and light touch sent all the pain scurrying. Warmth bloomed over his knuckles and radiated up his arm, gaining intensity and burning the hottest across his torso.

“You’re putting on a brave face, but how are you really holding up?”

Her words pricked at his brain as he breathed in her sumptuous fragrance. “Umm…honestly, if I try to think about my father being gone forever, I feel a bit numb.” As his own words hung in the air, an odd, sour sensation stirred in his stomach. Why the hell did I tell her that? He hated thinking about his dad. Imagining how things could have been if they’d reconciled seemed useless since he’d never admitted he’d always wanted the old buzzard’s love. He sure as hell didn’t want to talk about his contradictory emotions on the subject, but even still he could hear his stupid mouth dropping more of his secrets like a huge drain sending washed-away filth out of the shower. “Things were never good between us and during the entire funeral, I felt like a fraud.”

“The parent-child relationship is often a complicated one.” She rested her head on his shoulder while tucking herself in closer to his side, another comforting gesture that somehow had him ready to spill his guts to this woman he barely knew.

“No kidding. I know I’m supposed to be devastated…I can’t seem to muster up much feeling on his passing at all.” Why, why, why! Why can’t I keep my big trap shut around her? She’s going to think I’m a fucking sociopath.

“Perhaps you will when the shock wears off a little.”

“Maybe, but I doubt it. I know it sounds bad, but my dad wasn’t the man that all those people today thought he was. If they knew half of what he was really like…Shit, I must sound like a huge asshole. I’m sorry. I don’t even know why I’m telling you this stuff.”

She patted his knee. “Because you need to talk to someone and I’m here.”

Wrong! Wrong! If I wanted to dredge up all this bullshit until I choke on it, I’d be talking to Dash and Mama Carol; they know the real deal.

Part of him wanted to call it a night if only to end the uncomfortable conversation, but his body wouldn’t cooperate. His heart raced as he swallowed the lump in his throat. Normally, the horse inside him would have been ready to bolt, but at this moment, the damn thing was more like a mule, digging its hooves in and refusing to budge.

“It’s not like I’m happy he’s gone. It’s more like I can’t force myself to feel sad about it.”
