Six Sentence Sunday: Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? #sixsunday

Hello again and welcome back to the blog for another installment of Six Sentence Sunday. Thanks for stopping in 🙂

Today’s sample is from my current WIP, and what I hope will end up being my Nanowrimo project this year. The novel is a fantasy, and in this scene, Jyslin (Red) is letting the Lupine (wolf/human race) she just met, Domnu, know exactly how she feels about him. She doesn’t seem to be too intimidated, frankly. 😛

Hope you enjoy.

“Domnu,” he offered. “Name’s Domnu.”

She showed no sign she’d heard him. “I assure you I’m no damsel, and do not require any rescuing today.”

Domnu lifted his shoulders in a shrug. “Suit yourself, Red.”

As always, your thoughts or comments on the above excerpt are welcome and appreciated. Be sure to click the banner at the top of the post and visit the other blogs participating in this week’s Six Sentence Sunday.

Six Sentence Sunday: A Taste of Faith’s Gift #sixsunday

Since I am still celebrating my contract signing with Evernight Publishing, I figured I would post another little tease from my Christmas story, FAITH’S GIFT. This week, I have put the focus on Richard Halstead, the oh so yummy Dominant stranger.

“Patience,” he warned, holding her in place. “Good things come to those who wait.”
Frustration wormed its way into her chest. “You started it.”
Richard chuckled and released her. “True enough, but I’m afraid you’re in over your head. I’m having terribly impure thoughts at the moment.”

So, what do you think of Richard? As always, your comments and impressions are welcome.

Six Sentence Sunday: BDSM and Kink are HOT #duh #sixsunday

For my first post back in the swing of things for Six Sentence Sunday, I thought I would stir things up a bit, and maybe turn the heat up with a little snipit of the erotic short I just finished.

The story was written for a Kinky Christmas anthology, and I am still waiting on word of an acceptance or rejection, but in light of all the talk and hype lately with respect to kink and BDSM in fiction, I figured I would join in on the fun. This is part of a scene between the two main characters, Faith Daniels and Richard Halstead. (BTW — Hercules is Richard’s Saint Bernard)

Without further delay, here is my six sentences for this week:

“I’ll just come back tomorrow at the same time.” Faith glanced at Hercules. “As long as you promise not to growl at me again.”

“Yes, you’re right. Absolutely,” Richard agreed. ” I’m sure it’s much safer to ride the subway this late than to take a well meaning stranger up on his offer of kindness.”

You have to keep an eye on that Richard, he can be pretty convincing when he wants to be…so like a Dom 😛

As always, I would love to hear your comments or thoughts on the excerpt. Feel free to share.

Six Sentence Sunday: Back in the Swing! #sixsunday #writing


Welcome to my little part of the world wide web and thanks so much for stopping by for Six Sentence Sunday. As those of you who follow this blog regularly know, I have been absent from the group for a while now, and am just starting to get myself back in the swing of regular postings.

In honor of my actually remembering to write my post this week, I thought I would share a little snipit from my current WIP, MACHENWOOD.

Right now, I am in the process of doing some editing and rereading of the story to this point, as I haven’t really touched the MS in over six months. It’s like a brand new tale to me 🙂 Man, I love that!

Anyway, without bending your ear further, here is my six sentences for this week.

Ana raised a brow. “A Lupine?”

“A mix of human and wolf. They live in the Dark Forest, north of the Glen.”

Ana’s stomach dropped to her toes. Magic wielding goddesses, shapeshifters, dream crystals…how would she ever find her boy?

How’s that for a little teaser? As you can probably figure out, Machenwood is, or will be, a fantasy tale.

Would love to hear your thoughts on the excerpt.

Six Sentence Sunday: She’s Baaack :P #sixsunday #CalloftheSea

Yes, that’s right. I have returned after a rather lengthy hiatus from the fun and frolic of Six Sentence Sunday. With the release of my debut novel, Call of the Sea on June 21st, things have been beyond hectic over the past month. (In a good way).

Now that I am back on track, as it were, I thought it best to get back into the swing of things.

This week’s six sentences are brought to you by my month long distraction, CALL OF THE SEA, available from Inkspell Publishing, as well as most major online retailers (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, All Romance eBooks, The Book Depository).

Since Daniel seems to be a favorite character of most who’ve read the book so far, I thought I would give him the spotlight for today’s tease. 🙂

The columned mansion sat at the top of a hill overlooking the infamous gates of Gibraltar. If it weren’t for the seriousness of the situation, Daniel would have enjoyed the breathtaking view of the narrow gateway into the Mediterranean Sea.

“Just remember why we’re here. Stay sharp, lad.”

Daniel wiggled his fingers, as if he could release all of his pent up apprehension through their tips. “Aye, Captain.”

Thanks for stopping in for a visit. I’ve missed you all 🙂

Six Sentence Sunday: That Blissful Moment Before The First Kiss #sixsunday #writing

Welcome back and thanks for chosing to stop by for your Six Sentence Sunday fix. I always love having visitors. 🙂

Since I received my copyright in the mail from the Library of Congress, I decided to include six sentences from my soon to be released debut novel, CALL OF THE SEA.

Rather than set the scene on this one, I think I will let the post speak for itself. 🙂 Enjoy!

Her calloused fingertip traced his lower lip and her eyes filled with wonder.

Daniel’s hands surrounded her waist before he realized he’d moved. Her scent, a heady mix of lilac and peppermint spice, wafted up to him. His desire surged. “Ellie?”

The question hung in the air between them for endless seconds.

Welp, that got my engine running this morning. How about you? Comments always welcome. Be sure to add CALL OF THE SEA to your Goodreads TBR pile. You can find it here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13423867-call-of-the-sea

Six Sentence Sunday: Finding Her Submission #sixsunday #erotic

English: Wikipedia Saint Patrick's Day

Happy (day after) St Patrick’s Day and welcome to another installment of Six Sentence Sunday. Thanks for taking a swing by my blog today.

Things have really been picking up from a traffic perspective, and I want to thank all my followers for their continued support. It means the world to me.

 To celebrate the contract signing for my erotic short story, ROUTINE MAINTENANCE with 8th Circle Publishing, I thought I would post my six from that story. As you may recall, all proceeds for the anthology will go to charity. (for more information on the anthology, visit http://felttipserotica.com)

Without further ado, here is this week’s offering:

Still holding her in place with a handful of hair, Jacob leaned away, searched her face. “You have to be willing to ask for what you want, Kara.” He traced her jaw with a fingertip. “Can you do that for me?”

Confusion clouded her thoughts and heat flushed her cheeks.

Could she?

Six Sentence Sunday: What’s Up With That? O.o #sixsunday

Hello again, my friends and welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday. Glad to have you back after a short hiatus.

I have been hooting and hollering all over the internet about my debut novel, so I thought a change of pace would be nice. This week’s six comes from my current WIP, a fantasy romance I’ve given the working title of DESTINY’S TRIAL.

With an agitated grunt, the massive beast[grizzly] gave up, turned away from the liquid onslaught, and ran off through the thick bushes.

Jyslin dropped her arms back to her sides, releasing her hold on the water. It splashed to the ground, lifeless and disappeared as it seeped into the sand. She swept her panicked gaze to the injured wolf. Her heartbeat faltered.

The black mass of fur was gone, and in its place lay a naked, bleeding man.

She rushed to his side on weak legs and fell to her knees.

Always interested in your feedback and comments, so don’t be shy.

Six Sentence Sunday: Sexy Sunday Steam #sixsunday #erotic

Welcome to another addition of Six Sentence Sunday. I took the past two weeks off from posting, so I hope you missed stopping by for a bit of saucyness (I have no idea if that is really a word – some writer, eh?)

Anyway, this week’s six comes to you from my erotic short, Routine Maintenance, which Tiffany Reisz has graciously included in an upcoming erotica anthology for charity called Felt Tips. I can’t wait to read it, personally as I have seen some of the buzz, and the included authors are “HAWT STUFF”.

Here’s a taste of ROUTINE MAINTENANCE (Mature Audiences Only):

Kara moved in time with Jacob’s hips, grunting with each long stroke. Nipples tight and back arched, she rose the waves of pleasure as they spiraled higher, taking her closer to the sun.

Jacob’s fingers dug into her waist, held her in place while his thrusts took her over to edge of passion’s cliff.

Body singing with molten bliss, Kara held on as long as she could. When the waves of excitement grew too strong for her to fight, she let go, her body convulsing in rhythmic ecstasy. She cried out her shuddering climax into the crook of her elbow to keep the rest of the office from hearing her release.

*waves a hand in front of her face* That should put a flush in a few cheeks this Sunday morning.

I always enjoy hearing what you think of these excerpts. Feel free to leave a comment or just a hello 🙂

Until next time…

Six Sentence Sunday: The Curse of the Awkward Silence #sixsunday

Thanks for stopping by for another installment of Six Sentence Sunday. This week’s post is special for me, as the cover reveal for my debut novel is tomorrow. (A Hearty SQUEE for that)

In honor of the unveiling of my paranormal romance, this week’s six sentences comes from the soon to be available (Inkspell Publishing, June 2012), CALL OF THE SEA.

Without waiting for an answer, she[Ellie] headed down the dirt road, keeping her gaze focused on the path ahead and as far from the distracting Daniel as possible.

On a good day, the trek to Newquay was long. The trip with Daniel that morning was pure torture. Neither spoke a word, the silence between them stretching into an impenetrable chasm. Each time Ellie considered breeching it, her thoughts fled, palms got sweaty, and her ears burned. She’d already made enough of a fool of herself on the beach, she saw no reason to add to the humiliation.

Hope you enjoyed the snipit. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments, and click the banner at the top of this post to visit with the other participant sites.

Thanks again, my friends, and Happy Sunday!
