Up and Running

Hello everyone!

I know I’ve been absent for the past few weeks, but I’m happy to say that I have my computer back after nearly a month without it.  The bad news?  My friend was unable to find the file/book that I lost, the reason why I’ve been without the computer.  A bittersweet reunion, but at least now I can plow ahead and start working on the next couple books I haven’t been able to touch for a few weeks.  On the agenda is the third and fourth CC books and rewriting that lost book of mine.  Instead of trying to redo what I remember from the original copy, I’m going to start from “almost” scratch and go where the characters would like to take me this time around.  I have to bury the long gone copy and move on.  Sad, sad.  And I’m sure many of you reading this can understand what it means to lose something to a hungry cyber monster’s belly.  Bleh.

On another good note, the first semester of school is done.  Only three more to go (or another 12 months, lol).  However, I understand that the next four months will free up a bit more time than I had this past semester, which ended up being no time.  Even my best laid plans didn’t pan out as I had hoped.  Here is praying for a better schedule, more time, and some more interaction with everyone!

For those of you who enjoy parties, I’ll be participating in The Romance Studio’s five day-yes, 5 days!-Staying Home Party. I’ll be giving away winner’s choice of either Lexi’s Untamed Cowboys or Mandy’s Homebound Cowboys.  Be sure to stop over and check it out.  There’s a star-studded lineup of authors that will be hanging out for five days, sharing thoughts, excerpts, and just having a blast!  http://trsparties.com

I look forward to mingling with everyone!

Upcoming Release!

I’ve been busy at not getting much done, in the way of writing.  I’m sure there are plenty of people who know how that feels.  I’m praying that after this semester in school (oh yeah, definitely looking forward to a break after these past few months), I’ll be able to set more serious time aside for writing and less for studying.  Trust me, I much rather write some fun books than research papers, lol!

I do have great intentions.  I have started the third novel in the Casanova Cowboys series, and it might take a little longer to complete than expected.  The Ryder in this one is pretty beat up, both physically and mentally (can’t give too much away here), and I’ve been doing extra research (shhh, it’s not for school, lol) to make sure I connect with readers.  I’m hoping his character will really leave a mark in your hearts when he emerges 🙂

I am also hoping to finish the vampire novel I’ve been chatting up.  I had a devastating blow when I lost a nice chunk of the book in some cyber void, and trying to rewrite something that I felt worked perfectly the first time around is more daunting than I ever imaged.  This isn’t the first time I have lost work, but is the first time I nearly lost a completed manuscript less than two chapters away from being completed.  Hopefully it will continue to come back to me while I’m trying to get a tech wizard to work some magic for me.

And to the exciting news…

Mandy’s Homebound Cowboys is coming out on April 4th and is available for pre-order now (Excerpts will be coming soon:  www.bookstrand.com/mandys-homebound-cowboys).  I loved writing Mandy, the spunky red-head that knows just how to put her two men in their place.  Brody was a pleasure-in all ways-and Craig’s soft side beneath his bristly front definitely makes my heart flutter.  Be sure to check it out, and as always, I love to hear from my readers!

[Ménage Amour: Erotic Cowboy Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, light bondage, spanking, sex toys, HEA]

Mandy Pearson has fantasized about brothers Brody and Craig Ryder for years. Problem is, Brody has never paid her mind and Craig wants nothing more than friendship. When the two brothers return to Ryder after the unexpected death of their father, nothing can prepare her to become the center of their hungry attention. Her excitement is overshadowed by the potent bad blood, caused by Craig’s ex three years prior, that still runs between her sexy cowboys.

From the moment he returns to Ryder, Brody has his eye on Mandy. The once-scrawny, redheaded tattle-tale from his youth has blossomed into a hot, young woman he desires more than a riled crowd at one of his concerts.

When Brody and Craig learn they are vying for the same woman’s heart, will the betrayal from their past destroy their chance of a future with Mandy?

Release Day!

I have anticipated this day for a long time now. After taking time off to spend with the baby, I’m back in my writer’s chair, plugging away at one of the things I absolutely love to do: Write.

And today marks the reason why I love writing, and that’s to share my stories with you, my readers.

Lexi’s Untamed Cowboys, the first in the Casanova Cowboys series, is now available at Siren (http://www.bookstrand.com/lexis-untamed-cowboys), and at a 15% discount until February 4th.

I’ll be hard at work finishing up the edits for Jordan’s story (BML 4), and keeping my fingers crossed that CC 2 will be accepted by Siren. I’ve done light plotting for the rest of the CC series, but I’m currently working on a paranormal (yummy vampires) story to share with everyone. I’ll be keeping you apprised of progress in the undead department!

I hope you enjoy Lexi’s story with her sexy cowboys, Travis and Brent!

Excerpt from Lexi’s Untamed Cowboys, out January 28th!

I’m hard at work finishing up the last little details on CC 2 and hopefully will have it in this evening.  Yay!  The exciting news is that Lexi’s Untamed Cowboys, Casanova Cowboys 1 is due out January 28th from Siren (www.bookstrand.com/lexis-untamed-cowboys).  It is available for pre-order, and there’s a 15% discount from now until February 4th (don’t miss out!).  What better way to steam up pre-Valentine’s Day than with hot cowboys lovin’ a hot city gal in a hot menage romance?  Umm, I’ll take some of that snow over here!  Need something to keep the temperature down 🙂

I do not have a release date for Wild Hunts at this time, but will let you know as soon as I do.

And here, a brand new excerpt from Lexi’s Untamed Cowboys!

Lexi’s Untamed Cowboys

(Explicit)

She lowered her gaze from Brent, trying to figure out the best way

to word her next nagging thought. “Um, how did you and Travis…”

“Ah, that.” Brent chuckled, a deep, husky sound that rippled

through her body and strummed her aroused core.

“Travis was under the impression I struck something in you last

night, but if you two are…well, you know—”

He pressed a finger to her lips, quieting her with a soft “shh.”

“You caught his attention when he picked you up off the side of

the road. First time I heard him piqued since we started our

relationship.” His hand smoothed back her bangs and cupped the back

of her head. Her heart stammered as he angled her face up to his.

“The moment I laid eyes on you, I could see why.”

“I would never have guessed that either of you held that type of

interest. You’re both so…masculine. You certainly have your pick of

women.”

“Doll, we’re as masculine as they come. Our relationship is not a

typical one. Nor is it a public matter. Miss Bess may have a suspicion,

but we try to be caught with a woman in town every now and again.

Most women are after Travis’s name and money. Me? I’m a bit jaded

when it comes to the fairer sex.”

Lexi’s hopes suddenly fell flat. “Oh. Is it about that time again?

I’d make an easy fling, being that I’ll be leaving when my car’s

fixed.”

Brent’s eyes narrowed on her. His face hovered a few inches over

hers, those kissable lips of his drawn taut. “Now what would make

you think you’d be a fling? I wouldn’t indulge in stories, and certainly

not my private life, if I wanted a fling.”

“The timing of the comment had me wondering.” She tamped

down the foolishness that rose heat in her face.

“If I were to kiss you, would the timing be off?” The hand resting

against her lower back slid to her ass and cupped one of her cheeks.

“Because I’ve been wantin’ to taste that mouth of yours since dinner

last night.”

A split second passed before she felt the heat of Brent’s lips brush

against hers. The tease of a kiss tugged every cord in her body tight as

wire, vibrating in her womb. She slung her arms around his neck,

pressed her body flush to his, and opened her mouth to his kiss.

Brent explored her mouth with slow, lazy sweeps of his tongue.

He kissed away the soft moan that rolled up her throat, filling her with

the masculine, hot taste of him. She drank in the subtle flavor of

sweetness as the strength in his kiss consumed her mind.

Her body reacted like a set of fireworks lit in concession with

each other. She arched into him, pressing her heavy breasts against

the hard planes of his chest. The whisper of friction against her

nipples sent a spray of tingles straight to her clit. Moisture filled her

pussy, the warm itch spreading from her labia to her lower gut.

Pressing up on her toes, she tilted her hips, seeking a semblance of

relief in his cock bulge.

The skirt around her thighs bunched. Brent’s rough, callused palm

slid against her skin, a deep, rumbling groan escaping him to resonate

in her chest. His hand was strong, masculine, the hand of a capable

man. The unsteady release of his breath gave away his tenuous

control, his fingers splaying along her thigh, drawing closer to the

hem of her panties.
