That isn't all I have been up to!
I also just self published a new novella on Amazon KDP, Snow Bound Enemies. You can check out the cover art by the fabulous Leanore Elliott and an excerpt below!
“You’re trying my patience, Kayleigh. I don’t know how long we’re going to be stuck here together and you getting sick isn’t an option. Now, strip and get into that tub, or I’ll put you in it clothes and all!”
Angry, not just at him and his orders, but at the situation itself and at the mess that had brought her there, Kayleigh yelled back at him. “Fine! You want me to strip then I’ll strip.” With a hard yank she pulled her jacket open, sending buttons flying everywhere. The silk blouse beneath it came next, again the buttons skittering across the tiled floor. She shrugged out of both garments, letting them fall to the floor. She couldn’t rip the skirt, she knew, but she unzipped it and let it drop to the ground until she stood there in only her bra and panties and the garter belt and stockings that she preferred. Pantyhose had always been a misery to her, and the ultra feminine stockings and garters made her feel sexy and beautiful, no matter how sedate her outward appearance was.
Breathing hard from anger, her face flushed and her lashes still damp with tears, she glared at him. “Happy now?” She was unprepared for his response. He shoved her against the wall, his body pressing against hers intimately. His mouth was on hers instantly--hard, unyielding, claiming, but oh so skillful. It wasn’t a kiss so much as a vanquishing. Her hands were above her head, pinned there by one of his larger hands. His other hand cupped her chin, tilting her head up, giving him greater access to her mouth. The kiss deepened even further. His tongue swept between her lips, gliding sensuously over hers.
Every subtle movement, every slight shift of his mouth over hers was both delight and torment. It took her back to Steven and Dawn’s wedding, and that kiss under the mistletoe. That had been the first moment in her life where she’d truly felt passion. Prior to that, kissing and even sex, had been just something she could take or leave. It was nice when it happened, but it wasn’t a focus in her life. Then Patrick Murphy had settled his lips over hers in a ballroom crowded with friends and family and had literally set her world on fire. Now he was doing it again, in the darkened bathroom of his home, while she was helpless and practically naked in his arms, her temper once again leading her down an unexpected path.
Kayleigh fought back the whimper of protest when his lips finally broke from hers. He stepped back and it was all she could do not to arch into him, into the strength and heat that his body offered. She knew that he wasn’t unaffected. She’d felt the delicious bulge of his impressive erection against her. His ragged breathing and heated gaze only further proved the point.
“Get in the tub. Get warmed up and changed. You have fifteen minutes,” he said and stormed out.
Kayleigh watched him go, and after a moment, shook herself out of the lust and anger fueled stupor to do as he said.
In addition to all this writing, I managed to finish graduate school (go me!!!), bake about fifteen billion holiday cookies and make more candy than I ever want to contemplate again! Check out the new work and tell me what you think. I love hearing from you guys!
