He didn’t need some scorned woman using him. Excerpt from ENTANGLED DREAMS:

This is just a teaser. If you missed the first few excerpts of Entangled Dreams, click here.

Our female protagonist, Alexandra Nicole (Nicky), just hopped on the back of a complete stranger’s motorcycle, because she was depressed about her father’s death, ticked off at her boyfriend, and has decided to live life by her rules. Now she’s sitting on the beach with this stranger, getting drunk to drown her sorrows.

This week’s excerpt:

Alexandra turned to him, her eyes already glassy from the first drink, which was really more like four drinks. No way would she be able to hold onto him for a return ride to Merritt Island. She looked as though she would pass out at any minute.

She leaned toward him. He could see what she wanted, and he wasn’t about to succumb. He didn’t need some scorned woman using him. She inched her body closer, obviously cold in her little outfit and downing a frozen drink.

Instinctively, he wrapped his arm around her. She sighed, and he couldn’t help but feel the warmth emanating between them. She looked up at him and her lips were inches from his, smelling of cherry and sweet bourbon. He wanted this, too. No he didn’t, he tried to convince himself.

Entangled Dreams will be out in a few weeks, but take a peek at my current novels below while you wait.


What I write:   

While I do not write "Christian" books, I do share my characters' Christian beliefs. My characters are real people who come with real flaws; no perfect people allowed.

I characterize my stories as modern-day fairytales, as they are overflowing with romance, mystery, suspense, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a fairytale be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will hopefully make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.

Both of my published novels, She Belongs to Me and Land of the Noonday Sun, have reached bestseller status right alongside Nicholas Sparks, J.D. Robb, and other great authors. My third novel, Entangled Dreams, releases this month.

I love talking about all things books, so please connect with me via one of the links below.

  1. Loved your six sentence sunday. Check out mines. :)

  2. What's a guy to do? It's still early in the story though, so I vote for holding back.

  3. Very nice -- I love how he's trying to convince himself. :)

  4. Love the 'slap yourself back' line...I can imagine him preparing to inch in, but stopping himself before he moves. Great 6!

  5. Great six...too funny at the end when he admitted he wanted it then fought with himself that he didn't!

    Looking forward to next week.

  6. I love it. Especially the way he is arguing with himself. LOL

  7. Good luck with convincing himself - cherry and bourbon, oh my - LOL! Enjoyed the excerpt as always, can't wait to read more!

  8. A man with morals who's willing to turn down easy sex? Interesting. This is a great six. Very nice job!

    1. Ahhh...but maybe he's learned... Very seldom is sex free and easy; there's almost always a consequence, no? Thanks for commenting. I hope you'll come back again. You can read the full excerpt at the top of the page for "Entangled Dreams", which releases this month.
