Six Sentence Sunday 7/31/11

Wow! I can’t believe July has come and gone! Tomorrow is the long awaited (at least by me) release of book three in the Lothario Series, LOVE ME TWICE. In honor of this momentous occasion, today’s six are from this super fabulous story. Okay, my opinion, but see if you don’t agree.

Sean’s thoughts as Celeste approaches…

She looked like sin on a mission. That her mission didn’t include him made him physically ill. His heart raced like a thoroughbred on steroids, and then it stopped cold as she made her way across the room. The dress he’d chosen for her days ago, when he was certain she would choose him, skimmed her curves like a moonless midnight sky over the landscape. He didn’t need moonlight, any light, to navigate those curves. His hands, his body, knew them intimately.

LOVE ME TWICE – available tomorrow from Red Sage Publishing.

Welcome!! Thanks for stopping by today. I couldn’t resist these six. They’re from my WIP (work in progress) – the fifth book in the Lothario Series. Bree is attempting to set Drew straight. He’s not buying it…

“What the hell are you talking about?” His bellow took her by surprise, and she jumped another step back. “Do you think I’m going to let you go?”

          The world took on a red haze. Blood rushed past her ears, drowning out the rush of water against the hull, the wind, the music coming from the lounge on the deck above. “Let me?”

What’s in Your Treasure Chest?


Definition of Treasure – anything valued or highly prized.

Since the beginning of recorded time, people have valued certain things above all others, and in order to protect these prized belongings, we’ve cleverly constructed ways to protect them from those who would take them from us. They’ve gone by various names, strongbox, safe, vault, coffer, casket, and my favorite -treasure chest.

What we’ve stored inside has varied and changed over the course of time, but some things remain constant. Precious metals and jewels are still valued today, but once teas and spices, including chocolate, as well as fine cloth was considered valuable enough to warrant a lock and key.  Today we are less inclined to lock up the silver and more inclined to lock away scraps of paper that represent our personal wealth.

But, of course, not all treasures are tangible. As a romance writer, I’m constantly reminded that the most precious treasures of all cannot be seen or held, cannot be bought or sold. They are stored in a very fragile container, one that can be broken or stolen, one that can become fragile or hardened if not handled with care. This treasure chest can expand to hold an infinite amount of love without changing its physical shape. We often go to extreme lengths to protect this treasure chest, and the love contained within, sometimes at the expense of our own happiness. But, the treasure held within this chest can grow exponentially if you allow others to see what is inside.

So, this hopeless romantic says – open your treasure chest, your heart. Let others see the love inside, and that love will come back to fill your treasure chest to overflowing. 





Now that all of that is out of the way, it’s time to put rule #1 
into action! Let’s have some fun!

Six Sentence Sunday 7/10/11

Thanks for stopping by! Today, I’ve chosen another snippet  from the third book in the Lothario Series, LOVE ME TWICE, which releases Aug. 1, 2011.

“Come here, Celeste.”
Her core melted at the familiar command. How many times had he said those words, and how many times had she obeyed? Too many to count. No, I won’t give in, I won’t submit. She knew it was a lie as her feet betrayed her.
