I'm excited to announce the Weekend Dirty Dozen! A new blogging experience from a group of romance authors from a variety of genres. We will each post twelve sentences for your sampling enjoyment from a WIP or published work.  It would be great if you followed the official FaceBook Fan page at this link for a list of contributing authors:!/pages/Weekend-Dirty-Dozen/251564698227203?sk=  That is a sure way not to miss any of the great freebies many of  the participating authors will be offering!! The event runs  from Friday morning through Sunday night, which allows readers and fans more time to comment and post.

In honor of momentous occasion, I will be offering a $10.00  Gift Certificate from my Publisher, Evernight Publishing to one happy commenter!

For my first Dirty Dozen, I'm posting 12 from my current release, Dating 911.  My heroine mistakes my firefighter hero for his twin brother in this scene...Enjoy!

Without warning, a nearby falsetto voice cut into the air and
sang the opening line in perfect harmony with Sting.


Roxanne twisted on the seat, her gaze landing on the singer.

Doctor Cruz Avery, a six-foot tall, black haired, broad-shouldered man, held a beer bottle to his mouth like a microphone. Worn jeans hung low on his tapered hips, and he sported a black T-shirt that molded to his well-muscled pecs. She snickered at the phrase splashed across the front of the fabric in bold letters--
I Can Handle Your 9-1-1”.

“Well, Cruz is looking for some action. Check him out,
Ambra. His entire persona is completely different--from the preppy clothing to his ‘I’m available’ attitude.” Roxanne stared. This wasn’t a side of him she was familiar with.
“Now, that’s what I’m talking about! Look how the
testosterone just oozes from his pores. He screams, ‘I’m sexy and you’re gonna get lucky.’ ”

That's all for now!  Dating 911 is available at Evernight Publishing at this

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
