I’ve been Spotlighted!

A wonderful blogger has set up a post just for me. I feel so special. She offered her readers a blurb of my book, a steamy excerpt, and my author bio. Hope it converts to at least one or two new readers. I sure could use a different stroke of luck in my writing. It isn’t going too well right now.

Jingle Balls

Christmas Hunk Jingle Balls

Welcome to my portion of the Jingle Balls Giveaway Blog Hop. Yes, I know. OMG, another one! What can I say. I love to participate. As I sit here and get ready to post this blog, I find my mind blank. I’m so busy glancing at the very sexy Mel Gibson, Mel GibsonLethal Weapon 3, that I’m distracted. Then there’s the picture above. Talk about a way to mess with a girl’s mind! There’s nothing better on a cold winter night(though it’s probably a lot colder for some of my readers than it is here in West Tennessee) than a hot sexy man. Even better, sex with a hot, sexy man.

Heart Over Mind smashwordsHeart Over Mind Blurb:

A Life Changed Forever
Nala Arpaia, psychiatrist, lives a boring, routine life…until her knight in tight blue jeans comes to whisk her off to a family castle full of fabled creatures. It’s like something out of a book, all the way down to the life or death situation she finds herself in. As the last member of the most powerful blood line to ever exist, Nala is now the final mark of Broncestan Milivak, who’s goal is world domination.

Nala has to master her powers if she wants to save the free world. All she really wants…is her protector Gabriel.

Stubborn to the Core
Gabriel Ricardo’s job as head Graida, a magical bodyguard, is his life. He eats, breaths and sleeps work. When his boss, head Elder Elam Korbin gives Gabriel the task of retrieving his niece, Nala, Gabriel’s all business. Until, he meets the psychiatrist. Things go down hill from there. This case isn’t like any other. Illusions, magic, and attempted kidnap he can handle. The presence of the strong, and irresistible attraction he feels for the doctor he can’t. As things get dangerous, Gabriel has to force his mind to focus on the case, and not the lust burning him alive.

Unable to Resist…
As Broncestan’s attacks get stronger, and more dangerous, Nala finds it more important than ever to experience the kind of relationship she’d always wanted, but never had. Seeing Nala suffer at the hands of a power-hungry Damned soul, Gabriel realizes keeping his distance isn’t working. Soon, they give in to the passion and proclaim their love. Just when things are supposed to work out, things hit rock bottom again.

Their Future Looms in the Balance…
Will they ever be able to defeat Broncestan and enjoy a relationship together or are they doomed to live their lives alone and miserable?

Excerpt:

“I love you Nala.”

She looked up at him and knew he meant it.

“And I love you. Will you make me yours now?”

Reaching down, he spread her legs and slipped one finger inside. “God, you’re so wet.”

Nala begin to squirm as he sped up his ministrations. Pressure built as he pleasured her. She tried to stop him but he pushed her hands away.

“Let go.”

She surrendered to the feelings. A scream exploded from her throat as she climaxed. When she came down, she noticed Gabriel looking down at her.

“That was great.”

Gabriel gave her a feral grin. “That’s nothing compared to what’s next.”

He slid into her, letting her adjust before going deeper. He groaned in ecstasy as he moved in and out, gaining speed but holding back so he would not hurt her. Nala gasped and sobbed at the feelings he evoked. She went higher with every thrust and was just about to fall over the edge when Gabriel stopped. Nala followed her instincts and moved her hips, rocking against him.

“Nala, you have to stop.”

She heard the strained words and felt the strength of his hands at her waist, but kept going.

“In a minute.”

She could feel it building. Her breath came in pants as the first ripples started.

“Open your eyes.”

She obeyed his command. Her eyelids felt heavy as she forced them to open against the pleasure. When Gabriel started to glow a pale white, Nala gasped. She looked at her own hands in surprise. She was glowing too.

“Gabriel, what’s happening?”

He smiled. “It’s the mating ritual I told you about. Look over there.”

Nala followed the sound of increasing mumbles. A group of see-through figures hovered over the floor, staring right at them as they spoke in a strange language. They started to move closer. Nala squirmed to get out from underneath Gabriel.

“Let me up. I don’t want anyone seeing us.”

Gabriel held her under him with a tender kiss. “Don’t worry. They don’t see. They just sense when a mating ritual is occurring and appear to bless the union. Once they’re done, they disappear.”

12 Days of Christmas

12 days of Christmas

Welcome to my addition of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. You may have noticed that I’m participating in a lot of blog hops this month. That’s because to me, Christmas is about giving. That’s why every hop I enter this month will have a free copy of my paranormal romance, Heart Over Mind smashwordsHeart Over Mind available to one lucky winner. For those of you who don’t win, keep your head up. There’s a bunch more chances to win. I’m hosting giveaways on my website, and on my Facebook fan page. And for those of you who don’t win the book, you can still opt in to win two bookmarks, one from myself and one from the fabulous Gracen Miller.

If you’d like to enter for the bookmarks, please state in your comment. I know some people don’t collect those.

If I could have one thing for Christmas, besides for my children having the time of their lives and getting everything they want, it would be a white Christmas.White Christmas Some people are probably a bit curious about this. See, I live in West Tennessee, where the most snow we see is usually less than two feet. That often occurs in the middle of February. We’re lucky to see four snow storms a year. I don’t want anything heavy, but it would be nice to wake up Christmas morning to a bit of white stuff on the ground. If only we could have that without intense cold, I’d be a happy camper! I hate cold weather. Thank goodness the coldest it ever gets here is 7 degrees. I don’t think I could handle sub zero temps. And I want to visit Alaska! Ha. I’m a walking contradiction.

So readers, what do you what most for Christmas? (Oh, did I mention I also want a Kindle Fire? For purely selfish reasons of course. Hey, Momma’s allowed to ask Santa for stuff too! LOL)Dear Santa

Novemhappy thanksgivingber is here and that makes me think of a lot of things. The first, “Crap. Christmas is almost here!” The second, “Dang, I gotta get my house spotless before the family comes over for dinner.” I live in the South so our Thanksgiving dinner isn’t as traditional as others. As a child, we used to have KFC because my grandmother would be so exhausted from canning that she wouldn’t feel like cooking much. I still remember the taste of the mashed potatoes when I used to scald my mouth.

Since I’m married now and have children of my own, I try to start my own traditions where everything is concerned, and then share my childhood stories with them as we’re cooking. I’d love for them to know the history of Thanksgiving but every time I think about it, I can’t help but First Thanksgivingremember the scene from “The Addams Family” where Wednesday leads a riot of the Indians to kill the pilgrims. LOL. Could you imagine how different the world would be if this had happened. I’ve been lucky enough to visit Jamestown, where the history of the first settlers is still alive. It’s an unbelievable experience walking through the old huts, along the ships they used to sail to America and seeing how they used to live.

I have a lot of Native American blood running through me so I love its’ history. Due to all of this, explaining to my children exactly what happened is a bit confusing. I just let them watch Pocahontas instead, even though that movie isn’t historically accurate. Now, my children want a pet raccoon and a humming bird. Two of the meanest things I know of! Go figure.

This will be the first Thanksgiving my husband and I celebrate at our home here in Tennessee. ForFeast the last four years, we’ve taken an eight hour road trip to enjoy time with his family down in Biloxi, Mississippi. I plan to do it right, with the turkey and all the trimmings. My children demand it. I hope to give them a few happy memories like I had when I was their age. If I’m lucky, I might even be able to convince my grandfather to stay around, though it is unlikely. He’s talking about a road trip. Holidays haven’t been the same for him since my grandmother passed away in ’02.

So readers, what’s your favorite part of the holiday? The food, the smells, the full bellies, the hunting, the family? Or something totally different? One lucky commenter will win a free copy of my paranormal romance, Heart Over Mind, which is an Ebook and available in all e-formats. Look forward to hearing from you.

Dirty Dozen Weekend

Weekend Dirty DozenFor this weekend’s Dirty Dozen, I decided to post a piece from my completed, yet unpublished novel, A Woman’s Revenge. In this novel, a demon is getting revenge on cheating males by making them pregnant! Paranormal and Demonic Research arrive at the newest crime scene to try and stop her. Instead, she ends up impregnating one of the agents. Here’s a scene between pregnant man Jaxon Diego, and Healer/Empath doctor Mandi Thompson.

~~~

Oh, sorry about that. It’s a morning thing. I hope you don’t think,” he cut off before he could finish the sentence.

Mandi thrashed her head back and forth. “That would never occur to me. I’m not that type of woman.”

Jaxon pulled her around to face him, oblivious to her discomfort about his arousal and his state of near undress.

I thought last night went a long way to show you how desirable you are.”

Mandi shrugged. “It’s your condition.”

The only condition I have around you is horny.”

~~~

Though this book is not yet on sale, I do have one available for 99 cents until December 1st. Heart Over Mind is a paranormal romance e-book which has all types of mythical creatures, great sex, and a life or death situation. You can also buy it in paperback on Amazon.

Be sure to check out other participating authors at http://weekenddirtydozen.blogspot.com/

One lucky commenter can win a free copy of Heart Over Mind. All you have to do is follow this blog, like my fan page, like the Dirty Dozen fanpage, and comment on this post!

Cool air touched her skin and she looked down to see her dress inching down her body without anyone touching it. She looked at Gabriel, startled. He wore a smug grin.

“You’re not the only one with telekinesis.”

Nala giggled. The sound turned to a gasp as the dress dropped to a puddle of fabric at her feet, leaving her standing there in a pair of lavender thongs.
