Good morning and happy Sunday! It's that time again for #SexySnippets. Sexy Snippets are seven sentences, taken from a work in progress, or published book, brought to you every Sunday. If you want to join in the fun, sign on at the linky below. Then on Sunday, put seven sentences on your blog. Be sure to use #SexySnippets in the title and link back to

This week's snippet comes from a book I'm working on that has a deadline of January 5th for release in April, 2017. Got my shiny new cover and I'm super excited about this release.

Last week my nurse lost her beloved patient when he coded and died... This snippet picks up a bit further in the scene while she is doing post mortem care and getting Seamus' body ready for pickup from the mortuary. This is edited to try and make it fit the format....

 “I don’t believe in ghosts.  I don’t believe in ghosts.  I don’t believe in ghosts.  You’re just a figment of my imagination…” Her palms trembled against her tightly shut eyelids.  “Yeah, the first phase of the grieving process. On the count of three, I’m going to pull my hands away from my eyes and you’ll be gone.  One… Two…” 
Her heart jerked in her chest and she dropped her hands.


That's it for now... Don't forget to stop by and read all the other #SexySnippets

BLURB Chicks Dig Scars:

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.

While doing post mortem care on a patient I wondered about where we go when we die and if the dead person was in the room watching me. That's how the idea for this book came about... this was a fun scene to write. I LOL'd a lot. 😂😂😂
