~ When the desire to be with her is so strong ~ 

Emem is on her way to attend a Christmas speed dating contest in her hometown. This season, she has her mind made up to only date a bachelor who grew up in Barrow-in-Furness. Her reasons are personal and there is no way she would date a man who is a non-local.

Runo has an invitation to a Christmas event that sounds more like a blind date. He is excited at the perfect chance to indulge in a quickie affair with a woman he will not have to see again after this year’s week-long contest.

When Runo is paired up with Emem, their attraction is instant and the urge to kiss her is so strong and undeniable. Then he finds out Emem wants more than a week long affair. And she discovers Runo is a non-local out to have fun. When the desire to be together is so strong, would they reveal their deep emotions or find reasons to opt out of the contest?

~ From the Author of His Ring: A Sweet & Steamy Romance

In haste, Emem dropped the mug on her dressing table and fished out her mobile phone. Runo’s name scrolled across the screen and her fingers wobbled as she answered the call.

“Hello,” she whispered, locking her bedroom door.
“Why are you whispering? Are you not home yet?” Runo queried, his tone sharp.

“I’m home. Just don’t want my family listening to my conversation.”

He laughed in her ears and she giggled.

“Sounds like my family. I bet they sat you down to ask about me.”

Emem nodded. Then realised Runo could not see her, so she responded. “Had to reveal the basics to pacify their interest.”

“So did you tell them I massaged your shoulders?”

The reminder of how his strong fingers kneaded her flesh made her grit her teeth as a hot flush boiled her face.

“No I didn’t,” she murmured, pressing the mobile phone to her face as if to bring him closer.

Runo chuckled, the sound tingling her skin.

“Did you tell them you kissed me?” he rasped in her ears.

Emem stared at the ceiling, took in a deep breath and touched her lips with one finger the way Runo had in the restaurant. She could still taste the champagne on his lips and a fresh surge of shivers strolled around her backbone.

New Release Spotlight!

My former critique partner and face-to-face friend, M.J. Kane has a brand new release in her Butterfly Memoirs series! This series has received wonderful reviews, and I am proud to introduce you to Book Five, entitled Alone.

About the book:

When Derrick’s brother drives the family business into bankruptcy, Derrick is left without a job and only one choice: start over. With a new job waiting in Atlanta, the only other thing he’s looking for is a woman who’s willing to fit his no-strings-attached relationship policy. But then he runs into Kelli, a woman with a smart mouth who challenges him in every way. She’d be perfect … if it weren’t for the fact she had kids. 
Shortly after giving birth to her son, Kelli’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce. Forced to move in with her newlywed sister, Kelli is faced with raising two young children on her own, finding affordable housing, and landing a job that will pay her bills. The last thing she needs or wants is a man in her life. But when her brother-in-law’s best friend shows up for dinner, it’s impossible to ignore the sexual attraction. 
Fate and finances have another plan, though, forcing them into living under the same roof. Despite their differences, Derrick finds himself breaking his own relationship rules. But as his luck would have it, just when he thinks he’s ready to make a commitment, tragedy strikes close to home and, with it, issues from his past that force him to risk it all. 

Here's a snippet:

“Well, well, look at what the cat dragged in.”

I turned and expected to see Trevon’s wife, Kai, but instead faced her sister. The first time we’d come face-to-face had been during the renovations. She was in charge of interior decorating, while I was in charge of renovating the entire restaurant. A delay in the work schedule had had her fuming. She’d searched me out and jumped down my throat, demanding my crew be finished so she could keep to her interior decorating schedule before she had her baby. She had been heavy with child and bore a pregnancy glow. She’d had the baby by the time I came back for the wedding.

But today…

“Kelli, you look…” Unable to help myself, my gaze traveled the length of her body. All the baby weight was gone and damn, she was fine.

She wore a pair of ripped jeans, a T-shirt, and her feet were bare. Long jet-black hair rested on her shoulders and cat-shaped eyes drew my attention.

“I look what?” A hand went to her hip as a thin eyebrow arched.

She may have had her baby, but she still had the attitude.

Before I could respond, a little girl, the spitting image of Kelli, ran to the doorway and tugged on her shirt. “Mommy, Aunty said the timer went off on the stove.”

Kelli ran a hand over the little girl’s head. “Okay, tell her I’ll be there in a second and that Uncle Tre’s friend is here.”

The little girl looked at me. Her eyes widened as her head went back to take in my full height.

Kelli clicked her teeth. “What do you say, Christina?”

The little girl snapped back to attention. “Hello.” She grinned, then ran off to deliver her messages.

Kelli’s attention came back to me. “You were saying?”

I cleared my throat. “The last time I saw you was at Kai and Trevon’s wedding. You look nice.”

“And what, I looked like a crazy person then?” She stepped aside and directed me to come in.

I wasn’t taking the bait. “No, I was going to say−”

She laughed; the musical quality struck a chord inside of me. “I probably did. I was breastfeeding a three-month-old while trying to play maid of honor. It was crazy.” She breezed past me and walked down the hallway. I followed, unable to take my eyes off her waist and hips as they swayed. I’m pretty sure she wasn’t trying to be sexy, but in those fitted jeans….

I ran a thumb over my brow and forced myself to look away and remember she was a married woman. As much as I appreciated a woman’s anatomy, there was at least one line I didn’t cross. Married women were completely off-limits.

The smell of cooked food grew stronger as we neared the kitchen, and my stomach growled. It was the perfect distraction.

“Hungry?” Kelli glanced over her shoulder.

Damn, those eyes of hers were sexy as hell.

Between books...

INNER CITY BLUES went to my editor on Sunday! 


Since then I've been working on my "between books to do list". When I'm in the process of writing, I don't do much of anything else besides read and little bit and watch some TV at night.  That means the house only gets the minimum vacuuming and dusting. All of the craft/business articles I've printed out during the six months I'm in my writing cave are stacked up in piles in my office and on the dining room table along with everything else that needs to be filed. I also had to make up folders for the research I did on all of the Stafford brothers books.

So every day I'm spending time going through the piles and sorting out what I need to read and what I just need to file, and every afternoon I'll be reading the craft and business stuff. Getting organized always makes me feel good. The idea of starting a new book/series with everything in its place is wonderful.


My editor blocked out two weeks to do the book, and that means I have fourteen days or less to get everything done.

On the fun side, I'm reading a great book, ALWAYS AND FOREVER, by the queen of historical African-American romance, Beverly Jenkins. 
Yes, on the surface (front cover) it looks like a traditional historical romance, but the story is actually about 35 women traveling from Chicago to Kansas by wagon train in the late 1800's. They are going to become wives to men in a town founded by blacks where women are few. All the women have to base their choice on are sketches of the "grooms" and a description of what each man is looking for in a wife. Grace Atwood has personally interviewed each of the woman, chosen the ones she feels fit the descriptions sent by the men and those she feels are tough enough to make the trip. She organizes the wagon train and hires Jackson Blake to be their wagonmaster. The romance that unfolds is between Grace and Jackson, but all of the things that happen during the trip is what makes this book amazing. Ms. Jenkins, who always does detailed research into actual African-American history, did an incredible job on this story. I'm enjoying it immensely, and I thank God I'm living now. I wouldn't have made it back in the old days. 

As soon as I get the manuscript back from my editor, I'll do the revisions, format it for Kindle and Nook and then send it to the woman who formats it for Createspace. It still looks good for a release the first week of November. To all of the readers who've sent me Facebook messages or e-mails asking how long it will be before they meet Jesse, I say...
