Please come to Romance Books “4” Us, and read about my heartbreak on losing a manuscript.
Happy Birthday, Ella.
My favorite birthday was in May of this year. My husband took me to Sizzlers. I had a nice salad and lobster. It was fun eating out with my favorite guy. Then we went shopping.
I have exciting news. My short story will be published in August
So soon, very soon you can purchase Persephone’s Song anthology and read my short story, Weather Witch.
Still available and now only .99 cents, Windswept Shores.
Blurb: The sole survivor of a plane crash, Megan is alone on a deserted island in the Bahamas. Then she finds a nearly-drowned man. Another survivor, this time from a boat wreck.
With only meager survival skill between them, will they survive these windswept shores and can they find love?
“How’s the leg?” Seth asked.
“Better. It doesn’t hurt.”
“Let me have a look.” He removed his blood stained shirt, washed his hands, and sat sideways at the dining table.
Megan walked over, showing him her injured thigh.
He pulled her closer so she stood between his legs. Running his hands down to the bandage, he asked, “Megz, have you been shaving?”
“Um, no.” She gazed down at his warm hands on her tanned skin.
“Blimey, no hair or stubble. Not even one.” He carefully examined her leg.
“That is the wonders of modern technology.”
“Howzat?” He furrowed his brow.
“I had my hair removed with laser treatments.”
“Smooth like a baby’s bum.” He grinned. Gingerly, he took off part of the tape so he could peek under it. “It looks a bit better. Just a small pink ring around the wound, but it has a decent scab.”
“Oh, good.” She briefly closed her eyes as relief washed through her.
He smoothed the bandage back down, then smiled at her.
“I want to thank you for taking care of me.” She cupped his face, leaned down, and kissed him on the forehead.
“Try a little lower, love.” He tilted his head back.
“Well, since you went to all the trouble of shaving.” After a moment’s hesitation, she bent down, giving him another kiss on the lips.
The moment she did, his arms went around her waist. Seth pulled her against his bare chest. He deepened the kiss, brushing his tongue against hers.
Megan melted against him, making a small noise in her throat as an incredible flare of desire took her completely by surprise. The kiss was long, deep and very intense, while his large, warm hands slipped under her shirt, massaging her back.
Megan pulled back, looking down at the passionate expression in Seth’s gray eyes. “That was…”
“Bloody amazing,” he finished for her.
Megan’s eyes went wide. She took several steps back out of his embrace. She leaned against the counter. “Oh, I really shouldn’t have done that.”
“Don’t whinge, love. You needed that and so did I.” He gave a lopsided grin.
Megan found she wanted to trace his full, kissable lips with her fingers. Oh, no. She ran outside, breathing deeply of the clean evening air. What’s the matter with me? I’m married. You don’t kiss other men when you’re married.
“Megz,” Seth called, ducking as he stepped through the doorway. “It’s okay, love.”
“No, it’s not.” She wrapped her arms around herself, even though she really wanted to throw them around Seth. Megan bit her lip. This wasn’t supposed to happen. I shouldn’t feel anything for Seth. He is a big happy-go-lucky lug, also handsome and sexy as hell. Oh, damn.
He walked up behind her, placing his hands on her shoulders, sending warmth right through her. “When’s the last time you and your bloke threw a leg over?”
“That’s none of your business,” she snapped. Heat rose to her face.
“Megz,” he said gently, “ya act like yer haven’t been touched in a very long time. A lot longer than the two weeks that yer been here.”
She didn’t answer him. He’s right. Jonathan hadn’t slept with me in six months. I must be touch hungry. “Are we going to cook that pig or what?”

I interviewed my character, Seth, from Windswept Shores on Karenna’s blog.
Thursday’s thirteen: my hubby told me, “You’ve posted things that your hero says, why not thirteen things that your heroine says.”
Well, hey, I haven’t done one of those yet.
So here are thirteen things from Windswept Shores, that Megan says:
1. “God, this thing is heavy.”
2. “What the—did you just sniff me?”
3. “Large head okay?”
4. “Yes, but don’t get too excited. It’s got a hole.”
5. Oh, lord, he’s naked.
6. “I like to think it’s cozy.”
7. “Kind of like truth or dare?”
8. “I’m not even going to ask about that one.”
9. “Oh, that’s great! And they’re nice big ones, too.”
10. “O-oh, you’re just like every guy I know. Why is it always sex with men?”
11. “When are you not a distraction to anyone?”
12. Was that some kind of kinky Aussie pasttime?
