Calling all Christmas lovers!

             L… O… N… G          P…O…S…T             T…O…D…A…Y

I have some news! I am part of a wonderfully talented group and have been kindly invited to join them on this Love, Christmas 2 Collection.

But before I venture further into that, I wanted to talk about changes in my world. So, its August, the month where U.S. children return to school. Remember we have 11 children (long, complicated story. OF COURSE, I’m writing a book about it but not in this arena. I’ll keep you updated as there are updates.)

But, for now, lets focus on the new upcoming events. I have the first book of Cian and Molly’s story done and the remaining two of the trilogy outlined. WHEW! I’m excited to finish them and that is the only WIPS I am working on as I promised to have it earlier in the summer and things…LIFE… got in the way.

Anyway, we are homeschooling again this year but adding our 8th grader (our youngest. Her brother will graduate in November with plans to go to college in January.) Hope the heat moderates for us ALL!

Two new books in the O’Connor Series

The O’Connor Series

Quinn and Cheyenne’s Story

First 2 of 3 out today

Quinlan’s Quest (Quinlan Book 1)

I thought showing you a teaser for both books and giving you the Gaelic words might help get through the next hours waiting for the new books…

 

 PROMO 5

Can Cheyenne deal with his high-handed ways and higher expectations in exchange for being his woman?

Cheyenne Sterling was partners with her father in their accounting firm when he passed away suddenly. Now, one year later, Cheyenne has a healthy business and unhealthy lifestyle that is totally out of control. One afternoon control walked in her door in the form of Quinlan O’Connor, rough, handsome, and all alpha male. She couldn’t deny that he was very easy to look at, but also couldn’t deny that it was proving harder than she expected to fall in line the way he demanded. Then again, Cheyenne truly loved a challenge.

Considered the toughest O’Connor sibling, Quinn is a Sheridan, Wyoming, sheriff’s deputy with peculiar tastes. His brothers have a hint of how domineering Quinn is in his relationships but none knows the depths of his lifestyle. Finding a woman who is strong enough to stand up to him when it is the right thing to do, and woman enough to submit when she should has proven to be an elusive thing for Quinn. It makes his search for a wife a monumental quest.

When doing an errand for his father, he meets spunky Cheyenne Sterling, a young woman who needs a keeper with a firm hand and loving arms.  She reveals her wilder side and risky behaviors over a pseudo-business dinner at his parents’ home. The next thing he knows, he finds her in a private club he warned her to not attend. In Quinn’s world, there are consequences when a young woman disobeys him.

Will Cheyenne stay around after she experiences his consequences or will she run like the rest?

 

DISCLAIMER:  This book contains the spanking of adult women, elements of erotic play including anal and BDSM. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.

 

Accepting His Ways (Quinlan Book 2)

PROMO 7

Learning to accept her fiancé’s ways may mean a few trips over his knee on their way to the altar.

Cheyenne Sterling is walking on cloud nine. Her boyfriend of almost two years, Quinlan O’Connor, has finally proposed. Quinn is a local sheriff’s deputy and a charter member of the local BDSM club, The Sting, where they enjoy friends, playrooms, and entertainment as often as they can. Cheyenne expects it all to be smooth sailing from here. Engagements, however, have a way of breeding mischief, and this one is no different. 

Quinn is satisfied his life is moving forward. He was more than ready to take the plunge, but the road to future bliss can be long and bumpy.  As a card-carrying dominant, his need to retain control is critical but with his feisty woman, control may be more of a perception than a reality. Everything in their life now comes with a higher emotional price tag.

Will clandestine meetings, secret lifestyles, treasure rooms, new types of play, and one naughty submissive destroy all they have built between them and all they are beginning to grow in their new life? Is their relationship’s foundation strong enough to take so many changes and challenges without crumbling? In all the preparations for a life together, are they ready?

  Author Questions

 So first, of course, the obvious question. How did you become a writer? I’ve been doing it since I was a little kid. I didn’t really think anything of it until my mom pointed it out to me much later.  In Junior High we had to write a short story for the open house, and all the other kid’s stories were one page, a few paragraphs, mine was the only one that took two pages and had dialogue and everything. She knew then I was going to be a writer. When she told me that story, I figured, hey, she’s right!  Silly, that I needed someone else to say it in order for me to know it, but writing stories was just something I did for fun, to entertain myself.

 

Are you working on a new book right now? Yes. I’m working on a dark erotic romance. My first ever, and it’s terrifying to write because it pulls me out of my comfort zone of completely consensual spankings, and sexual encounters. On the other hand, it’s completely hot and exciting, so it’s a daily roller coaster ride.

 

How much of the book is realistic? Hopefully, all of it.  With this series, I tried to convey as true of a BDSM relationship as I could.  People make mistakes, ego’s get in the way, and being in a BDSM relationship doesn’t change that- but how those issues are worked out is what’s different.  There’s a lot of love and trust that goes into a BDSM relationship, and I wanted to convey that with this series. It’s not all red rooms and tainted pasts.

 

 

What book are you reading now? I’m reading 3 books right now.  Seven Nights to Surrender by Jeannete Grey. The Truth about Him by M. O’Keefe and Taming Texanna by Alyssa Bailey.

 

Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.  Blushing Authors have been a huge help, especially with this release. Everyone is so helpful and genuine. It’s been a great experience and hopefully the first of many.

 

What do you like to do when you’re not writing? I still have a day job, but in the off hours, if I’m not writing, or thinking about writing, I’m usually curled up with a book. If my kids happen to actually be home instead of off playing with friends, we’ll spend time together watching old sitcoms on Netflix, or having a family game night.

 

Does Prince Charming exist? Yes! Everyone’s version of what he looks like is different, but he’s out there.  For some, he’s an Alpha male that won’t give an inch and is unreasonably strict, to other’s he writes poetry and sings her sonnets- and anything in between. I lean toward the relentless Alpha myself, and have been lucky in that department.

 

Which body part would you choose to get a tattoo done? I celebrated my first book with Blushing Books by getting a tattoo of a heart on my right wrist.  I’m planning to get two more, another heart design on my ankle, and one on the top of my foot the words “Happily Ever After”.

 

The furthest I have traveled was to: Germany. My husband was in the Army when we married and was stationed in Darmstadt, Germany. It was a great time, even though I was far away from family and friends. I was sad to hear the base has been shut down since then.

 

Do you like your handwriting? Absolutely not!  My father always called it chicken scratch, and I have to agree. It’s horrible. I have a love/hate feeling when someone asks me to sign their book, because it’s just so bad.

NOW… the Blurb

Alyssa Sanders has taken care of herself since she was too young to do so. But she’s all grown up and ready to get her life on the right track.  She heads to Chicago with her life savings and a few prospects. She expects to get a job, find an apartment and get on her way of settling down. What she doesn’t expect is to find her new boss not only severely attractive and Dominant, but the son of an old friend.

Alex Trebelli would do anything for his father, so when he’s asked to escort an old friend’s daughter to dinner he doesn’t hesitate to agree. Except the daughter isn’t the small town young woman his father described. She’s all grown up, full of beauty and curves, and a submissive nature that draws out his dominant side.

When Alex explains he won’t be her friend, he can’t just be her friend, he wants more, he wants to be her dominant, her boyfriend, she has to decide if she’s going to take the leap. She’s never been good at a full time D/s relationship, but Alex makes her feel safe and secure. She finds him easy to be with, even when he’s being overprotective and bossy.

Can she manage to put aside her fears of failure, and self-doubt and give them a real chance, or will she chose the safer route and keep clear of his sexy smile, and dominant ways?

HERE is an EXCERPT: NAH NAH- I got to read them all>>>

“For two weeks you’ve toyed with me.” He rested his hands on his belt buckle, the movement not lost on her. “You’ve stared at me, you’ve winked at me, you’ve smiled at me, you’ve been a complete brat with me.” He stared at her; she didn’t move.

“Are you a brat usually?” he asked as an afterthought. He knew a few doms that liked their subs to be bratty, to give a reason to spank them for fun. Alex was not one of them. He’d rather have a straight on conversation. If his partner wanted a spanking, she needed only to ask, he was always happy to oblige.

“No.” She shook her head and averted her eyes. “But, it was fun to tease you.” She looked up at him then. “I knew you couldn’t or wouldn’t do anything about it. It was weird. The more I teased you and the more you did nothing, the more I wanted to tease you, to push you.” She took a deep breath. “I’ve never done that before with a guy.”

“What about Thomas?” He asked in a low voice. He hadn’t meant to bring him up, but before his brain could catch up to the conversation it was out.

Her eyes narrowed as she answered. “Bradley really has a big mouth.”

“That he does.” Alex agreed. “Now about Thomas.”

“Thomas is an ex. I’m sure you have quite a few of them.” She stepped around him and plopped down on the couch.

“Yes, but he’s not just an ex, is he?”

“Alex, he was my first dominant. He was the guy that showed me what being submissive means. He helped me figure out what I needed and wanted.” Alyssa looked up at him as she spoke. “And what is that? Because I’m going to be honest, Alyssa. I can’t get you out of my head. I won’t do the friend thing with you. I just won’t.” He shook his head. “And I won’t do the vanilla thing either. I tried that once, had a serious relationship and it all went to hell. I hated it, she hated it, and I won’t try it again.” He crouched onto his haunches in front of her. “I see you at the club, and I want to devour you. The friend thing won’t work.”

Her eyes swept over his face several times, and she exhaled loudly. “I want you,” she finally said and he began to breathe again. “I’ve hated the past few weeks, seeing you and not being able to talk to you the way I wanted to talk to you. As soon as I walked into a room, I’d find you instinctively. It was really starting to piss me off.” She grinned. “I don’t do vanilla well either. I end up being a bitch to see how far I can push the guy until he pushes back.” “Like you’ve been doing with me.” He nodded.

“Yeah.” She closed her eyes for a moment, and when she opened them they were filled with tears. “I’m really bad at asking for what I need,” she whispered. “You were just so, so, there.” She wiped her eye with the inside of her palm before the tear could fall. “I think it just frightened me. I mean I didn’t expect to meet anyone especially not anyone within the first day of being in the city. Your dad never told me how freaking hot you are.” She laughed, the sound made him grin up at her.

“I’m not your boss at work. Kerri is and Bradley is. I’m the finance and marketing guy.” He rested his hands on her knees, her skin felt warm beneath his hands. Soft. “But here, outside of the job, I’m all boss.” He winked and grinned up at her.
