Winter Solstice

The winter solstice is finally here.  Today marks the shortest day of the year, and the official beginning of winter.  (Could’ve fooled me!)  Most exciting, after today the days become longer.  I don’t know about you, but that’s the most difficult part of the season for me – having darkness fall so early and the sun rise so late.

I’m finding it interesting how closely today fits in with my current work in progress.  I’m editing the first Dream Wreakers story, which is set in the imaginary city of Solstice.  The story is a paranormal and most of the action happens in the dream world at night, so darkness is prevalent.  Finally, I haven’t been sleeping well… So, there you have it.

I do have a question for readers.  I’m planning to re-title this book, which was formerly known as What She Wants At Midnight.  (Blehck.)  What do you like better, Dream Man or Dream Wreaker?

Now you’ll have to excuse me.  I’m running off to Amazon with my list of “must reads.”  :-)

Welcome, MFRW Book Hook Blog Hoppers!   Have you downloaded your free copy yet?

Courting_Jealousy_200x300Courting Jealousy

When Noelle hires an escort to accompany her to a charity event, it’s merely to show her ex that’s she’s moved on. Yet she gets more than she bargained for when Dane is assigned to accompany her. Tall, dark, and handsome, he knows how to arouse jealousy.

Excerpt

Her laugh morphed into a moan when Dane settled his big, hot hand over her breast. He squeezed gently, lifting her in his palm. “I care, and I prefer the real thing.”

Noelle’s nipple hardened on the spot, and the ache traveled down directly to her core. “Why… why are you saying these things?” she asked.

They were hidden away together. Alone, with nobody around. There was no reason to keep up the act.

His lips curled into a somewhat embarrassed smile. “I guess you could say I’m hot for teacher.”

Her jaw dropped. Sexy men didn’t come on to her. She was pretty and she kept in shape, but she was low-key. Composed and self-contained. With her father’s high-profile job, she’d learned to live in the shadows. Handsome men like Dane didn’t tend to look outside the limelight for girls like her.

Yet when he leaned more heavily into her, she felt the evidence of his interest against her belly.

She propped her hands against his chest, and heat seeped into her fingertips. He was hard and muscled, yet she swore she could feel his heart pounding as hard as hers.

“But why?” she insisted.

“Why wouldn’t I be attracted to you?” he asked, flicking her nipple in chastisement. “From what I’ve seen, you’re sweet, giving, and adventurous. And in case you didn’t know it, you’re stunningly beautiful.”

He dropped his head and whispered into her ear. “I want to kiss you for real.”
