Six Sentence Sunday 4

Hopefully, I did everything right this week. Since Unbreak Me is with my editor I’m going to close out with this WIP today. Next week, I’ll bring you something entirely new!

Tait caressed the long muscles of his back. “You’ve unbroken me, Marcus. My heart, my soul, my spirit. You’ve unbroken them, healed the wounds…”

“Put Humpty Dumpty back together again?” His voice held a note of amusement as he continued to rain kisses on her neck, throat and shoulders.

Her hands gripped him tightly. “Yes. You have. And the happiness you’ve given me is something I will cherish forever.”

Look for Spellbound Treasure: Unbreak Me at Pink Petal Books in December! Happy Sunday!

Six Sentence Sunday 3

Yeah, I know. I again didn’t get my link to Sara Brooks. I fully intended to, but ya see, my DH is sick. What is it about men being sick that effs up everything you plan?

Here again is more of Tait and Marcus from Unbreak Me.

“I’m prepared to pay whatever you want for it, Marcus.”

Rage flared in his grey eyes as she spoke his name. “What if I want the last six years of my life back, Tait?”

She knew then that she could not win. The stone was lost to her. He had as much right to it as she had, therefore she would never be able to call the stone to her.

I’m hoping to finish this WIP today so wish me luck!

Six Sentence Sunday 2

I’ve been remiss about doing this. Blame it on my many deadlines. I’m not even sure anyone will be by to see this since I’m a West Coast person and this has to be posted by 9 am EST time. Yeah, 6 am on a Sunday comes awfully early and the auto post function on this blog has never worked right so here I sit disappointed.

I understand the reasoning behind the deadline and how it’s not fair to the others and all…but I have to admit (no offense to Sara and this particular event) that there are so many things related to promo in this industry that are on Eastern time only that feels unfair to those of us who live on the opposite side of the country.  I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been sent promo opportunities and gotten excited until I saw that it’s once again geared for those on Eastern time (or who don’t work outside the home) which leaves me right out. I guess I just need to get up on the weekends like I do for work days.

*sigh* Rant and disappointment over.

Anyway, just in case someone comes by, this week I’m taking up where I left off with Tait and Ren from Unbreak Me…

“I’m here to buy the stone from you.” Her voice sounded raspy and weak to her own ears.

A bark of caustic laughter escaped him. “You’re the other buyer? The one called No One?” His steel-colored eyes flickered, their expression derisive.

Oh, the emotion between these two. It’s no wonder it all explodes later…

I’ll try to have this done right next week. Happy Sunday!

Six Sentence Sunday 1

So I thought I’d try this for the first time since my idea for Quote of the Day on Facebook is bombing due to my totally lagging memory!

This is from my WIP Unbreak Me, a tale for the Spellbound Treasures shared world coming soon to Pink Petal Books. My hero is Major Marcus “Ren” Renniger. The heroine is Captain Tait Boland who is supposed to be dead. They are Pythian Elite warriors who use magic in conjunction with regular fighting skills. Ren thinks Tait betrayed him and sent his unit to their death.

Tait didn’t know what had clued him in as to her presence but Pythian warriors, especially those of the Elite, had skills and senses far above ordinary soldiers, and the man before her was the best of the best.

As he slowly turned to face her, she knew his awareness of her presence was personal. He didn’t just realize that someone stood there. He knew exactly who she was. Of course, the fact that they’d been lovers for five years and comrades in arms for eight probably gave him a heightened awareness of her despite the Alizar cloak that hid her from his hawk-like gaze.

“Are you here to finish the job?” he asked harshly.
