#SEXYSNIPPETS~17~MIGHT AS WELL FACE THE MUSIC~


Good morning and happy Sunday to you! Welcome to Sexy Snippets, where we get a chance to share a sneak peek at a work in progress, upcoming release, or a published work. Thanks to Doris O'Connor for putting this weekly blog hop together! Now on to my snippet. I just received the cover today for Nursing Misfits Book 1, Drama Queen! I absolutely am in love... To set the scene, it's Anne's first day of clinical and things haven't been going as planned...Enjoy! Oh, and this is unedited ;)


A soft knock on the bathroom door interrupted her anguish. Anne stilled, breath caught in her throat. “J-Just a—” she hiccupped. “Just a minute.”

“Anne?”

She froze mid-sniffle. There was no mistaking that sexy baritone voice. Even now, knee-deep in her own misery the sound whispered across her skin, awakening all her nerve endings. She remembered melting into those strong arms of his, his tongue teasing hers in a bone-liquefying kiss. Her body trembled. “Y-yes?”

“Open the door, please.”

The soft command came through the wood. She winced. Anne faced the mirrored glass once more. Coward that she was, she avoided her own gaze. She couldn’t bare facing the train wreck of her reflection and cringed at the thought of him seeing her like this. Taking a couple of deep breaths, she blew her nose one last time and dried her tears. Might as well face the music.

*****

And there you have it! Nursing Misfits Book 1, Drama Queen will be apart of a high heat level boxed set late summer or early fall so stay tuned for more of Anne's drama. LOL. Comments are always appreciated. I'd love to hear from you. Don't forget to stop by and see what other fab snippets the others are sharing today.

Enjoy the last remnants of your weekend,

MIDWEEK TEASE~17~WHAT THE HELL?

Welcome to this week's #Midweek Tease... where we share a snippet of a wip or published work with you. Thanks Angelica Dawson for putting this weekly blog hop together to livin' up our Hump Days! This week's tease comes from my contribution to the Prowlers & Growlers Paranormal Boxed set, Chicks Dig Scars!



Devon’s lids fluttered against the sunlight streaming in. It took several minutes to realize that there were no bongo drums playing. The noise intensified within his skull as a million jack-hammers struck with ceaseless abandon. Mouth drier than the Sahara during the worst sandstorm, he sat up gingerly, his stomach queasy. Christ, he’d overdone it again. Usually he didn’t drink until he passed out, just enough to numb his senses. Damn his dad for keeping his and Shannon’s wedding album. Devon never should have opened the damn thing. That one simple action had poured salt into his non-healing wounds and he’d simply lost his shit. As evidenced by the liquor seeping from every pore he possessed.

Fuck! Why had he done it? He knew why. The temptation to see her beautiful smiling face had been too great. Devon had needed to get lost in happier times—craved it, even. God, he could almost hear Shannon’s voice in his head, feel her velvety skin under his rough hands, taste her on his lips. He closed his eyes as fresh pain pierced his heart. He missed her so damn much.

Finnegan’s soft contented purring met his ears. “Quiet, man,” he told the cat. “You’re like a battering ram against my skull.” He scrubbed his hands over his face, rubbing over the bandage over his temple. “What the hell?”

He glanced in the cat’s direction. Finnegan sat on the lap of a woman who was asleep in his father’s favorite recliner. She wore dark navy scrubs and her brilliant red hair covered half her face as she’d curled up in sleep.

Shannon? How can that be? What the fuck?
Heart thundering between his ears with a roar, he leapt to his feet and crossed to her. He peered closer, gently brushing the silky strands from her cheek. Freckles on smooth creamy skin mocked him. Not Shannon. Of course it wasn’t Shannon. Shannon wasn’t ever coming back. Disappointment slammed into his gut. He studied the woman closely. She definitely could be Shannon’s twin if it weren’t for the thousand and one freckles and her hair the color of fire mixed with sunshine, whereas Shannon’s had been darker in color without all that spun gold intermixed and her skin free of the freckles. Briefly, he wondered what color her eyes were.

Resentment burned the back of his throat, mixing with the bile that threatened from his upset stomach. Who the hell was she? How’d she get in? He’d locked the front door. Hadn’t he?

That's all I have for now! Hope you enjoyed your tease. Don't forget to stop by and see the rest of the great teasers we have for you this week. As always, comments are appreciated and encouraged! Prowlers & Growlers releases on 4/25, but you can preorder now! 




BLURB

When death steps in...

Committed and compassionate intensive care nurse, Rachel O'Dea will do anything to save her patients. But when she loses a kind and loving man whom she forged a fatherly relationship with, Rachel unravels.

...or so everyone thinks.

The calm and soothing voices Rachel hears and the apparitions she sees are of the deceased man and his late wife as they navigate and persuade her to make important choices in her life, leading her right where she's supposed to be.

Free clinic doctor, Devon Jameson, needs more hands on deck. He can't possibly handle all the medical cases alone. When Rachel walks in, volunteering her services, he knows he has no choice other than to take her on board as she proves her worth when a pediatric trauma is left on his doorstep and there’s no one else to assist. As the two begin working together, their lives intertwine and the attraction intensifies. Scarred deeply by their past and their pain, Rachel and Devon begin a future only angels could predict.

SEXY SNIPPETS~16~SHAMELESS PEEEPING TOM~



Welcome and thank you for starting off your week with us! Sexy Snippets is a weekly blog hop put together by the lovely Doris O'Connor where we share approximately 7 lines from a wip or published work. Since Sex Is The Best Medicine is coming out of the Coming In Hot Medical Boxed Set soon and will be pubbed on its own, I'm going to share from that story. This is where my heroine gets her first glimpse at her new neighbor. Its edited to try and fit the guidelines... Enjoy!




Silently sending the Dating God prayers of thanks, Kate had gotten her binoculars out and examined every inch of what must be at least six-foot two or three frame of muscled USDA PRIME.  


Oh. My. God! He’d been absolute perfection!

Fanning herself with one hand, and still holding the binoculars with the other, she'd ogled that perfect specimen in her line of sight. Snug black T-shirt covered a broad, well-defined chest. He'd stacked a box on top of another and lifted both easily, biceps flexing. Her mouth had gone dry. She’d angled the peepers to take in the rest of the yummy view. Black jeans clung to powerful thighs and a firm ass. A soft moan escaped from her parted lips. Black was now her new favorite color.

The object of her fascination had looked up then and caught her—binoculars and all. Never one to be shy about her overt nosy nature, she'd smiled and waved.

MIDWEEK TEASE~16~HOT MESS OR NOT, I NEED TO SEE HER AGAIN...

Fabulous morning to ya! Well... not for me as I'm stuck in a vent/airway lab training all day today. But I will be popping in and out during breaks to check in with everyone. 

I'm happy to announce I found a home for my story which features a group of misfit nursing students. I've had this partial for a while now so I guess it's time to get cracking on it. With the help of the lovely Barbara Hopkins I now have a series title~Nursing Misfit Series~Book 1 Healing Touch. This is unedited, so be kind :)


    

Ryder stared after Anne, perplexed. His instincts told him to stay away from that one. She was a hot mess, all right. So much drama… Shaking his head, he started down the hall toward the nurse’s station for morning rounds where the team of doctors, nurses, social workers, case management, nutritionist, and pharmacist met with each patient individually and made certain he or she was on the right track for discharge.

Ryder hadn’t had any qualms lying to Mrs. Strickland about why Anne was late to clinical. Not that he made a habit about lying, but he’d seen that nursing instructor in action before. She’d tear into Anne for a less infraction, he was sure, but one look at Anne’s tear streaked face and drama aside, he had glimpsed fragility there. His heart summersaulted and his protective instincts had kicked into overdrive. Not sure how much more crap thrown her way she could take, he’d lied to protect her. And would do it again, he realized. He cared for her. The shock of the realization rocked him and he nearly dropped the open chart in his hands on the floor.

He felt partly responsible for her predicament, but that didn’t explain the emotional attachment to a woman he barely knew. They’d spent one night together. One rockin’ night, he amended and nearly groaned aloud when images of Anne’s incredible mouth trailing hot, moist kisses down his navel toward his hard cock seized his mind. His body reacted and he turned a bit toward the bookcase to hide his erection, using the top edge to hold the medical record as he paged through it, the words a blur.

Ryder went over the events of the previous evening. She had told him she couldn’t go out last night at the bar. But then that stupid fight had erupted and there was broken glass everywhere. He wasn’t sure if it was the booze, or the super charged atmosphere of the situation, but when he’d bent to help her clean up the sharp shards and they’d cut themselves on that single piece and suddenly his world spun out of control. Time seemed suspended and when he’d looked into those deep blue eyes of hers, he knew he wouldn’t be taking no for an answer.

With a heavy sigh, he sat at the computer designated for the doctors and logged in to Mr. Avondale’s electronic patient record. While he put in his bedside assessment, detailed the wound dressing change, and placed a few orders for the nursing staff, his mind lingered on a certain blonde who’s hair smelled of fresh lilies and had the most amazing plump, kissable lips.

God, the things she’d done with that mouth.
His cock strained against the zipper of his dress slacks and he shifted in his chair in an attempt to relieve the pressure. “Hot mess or not, I need to see her again,” he muttered low under his breath.

SEXY SNIPPETS~15~PANIC SEIZED HIM~


Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend is a lovely one! This week's snippet comes from my novella, Sex Is The Best Medicine which releases on March 29th! As always, a special thanks to Doris O'Connor for taking the time to get us all corralled to share our stories with you. 




Grant heard Kate scream as he was about to knock on her front door. Panic seized him and he pounded. “Kate? Kate, it’s Grant. Let me in.”

Silence greeted him. Swearing, he grasped the door handle and turned the knob. Locked. Shit!

With his shoulder, he rammed the door, adrenaline fueling his strength and making him numb to the pain. After what seemed like an eternity, the door flew open on its hinges, propelling him through the threshold on unsteady legs. Righting himself, he shouted Kate’s name over and over looking for her frantically.

She has to be all right. She just has to be.
