“Raynia’s Magic” on Sale Through Valentines Day

In honor of it’s publication anniversary, I am able to offer “Raynia’s Magic” vol 1 of The Amethyst Desire Collection” on sale for $.99. at Amazon

Blurb:

Raynia Castellano is drawn to purchase an amethyst pendant as an impulse buy but not before the clerk assures Raynia the magic is in the woman, not the necklace that seems to call to her. And given Raynia has just left an adulterous ex-husband and has recently settled into a law practice with her oh so sexy and oh so apparently gay law partners, surely a little magic is required.

Excerpt:

Peter watched Raynia move past Sally’s desk. Just the view of her Marilyn Monroe curves awakened his cock and started an inevitable hard-on. As she turned for her office, the view of her heart shaped ass finished stiffening his erection to a painful thickness trapped in his briefs. This had to end soon.

 

The side door of his and Chase’s connecting offices opened and his partner watched him with a grin and similar evidence in the form of a tented crotch in his trousers.

 

Peter tossed instructions over his shoulder as he crossed the room. “Sally, hold our calls for a while.”

 

“Yes, Mr. Thornton.” He closed the office door and turned to Chase.

 

“I can’t suffer like this much longer.” He pulled out the chair and sat down, adjusting his pants and cock to a less uncomfortable position.

 

Chase leaned in the opening of the door. “You’re the one who had the bright idea to let her think we’re gay.”

 

“You know she was a wreck after her husband left her. She needed a place to stay where she felt safe. I didn’t exactly know how to broach the conversation of Chase and I are bi-sexual and have wanted to jump your bones since we were freshmen together. Chalk it up to, our timing sucks.”

 

Chase pushed away from the doorframe and crossed the room to lean over Peter’s chair. He punctuated his words with forefinger jabs to Peter’s chest. “Yes, well our little butterfly is emerging and if we don’t do something soon another bee is going to be dipping into that honey.”

 

Peter slapped Chase’s hand away. “Didn’t anyone ever brief you on the concept of metaphors and explain–what you do with them should be grounds for incarceration.”

Hot hot hot story!!! I love that Raynia wasn’t your typical size 2 perfect boobed heroine. And I love friends to lovers stories. The writing itself was light and fun (except for that twist) and a truly enjoyable read.

Shifter’s Legacy a Character Reveal for Wolf Moon

In Shifter’s Legacy, we get a visit from Makala and Beverly, “Beverly’s Secret”. They are wrangled into baby sitting Baby Logan to allow Nathan and Addison their weekend romantic getaway. Only Nathan knows about Duncan’s invitation to the party. Fireworks ensue on that regard. But back on task.

Draft Excerpt:

“Makala tried to ignore the shrill ring of the phone. The sound screamed at her in counter rhythm with the Oh Shit internal litany pounding at her temples.

Beverly held the ringing phone out to her. “Makala! The phone is ringing again. It’s Nathan. You can’t keep ignoring his calls. It’s the first time they’ve left Logan overnight. They’re bound to worry.”

Makala shook her head. No way she could talk to him. It was up to Bev. She answered, “Hi Nathan” -a little too bright. Makala couldn’t hear his side of the conversation and wasn’t sure she wanted to.

Bev responded. “Yes, yes everything is fine here. We’ve been playing with Logan. He’s such a little animal… “She paused, listening. “Hmm, oh yes, having fun. You wouldn’t know him… Sure, sure everything is fine here. You two don’t give it a thought. Enjoy your weekend. Bye now.” Bev disconnected the call and walked over to where Makala was standing to join her in staring at the evidence of the little white lie.”

Beverly’s Secret Released 4/17/13

Beverly’s Secret released yesterday at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance Ebooks. All the big established e-book vendors.  I got word from my publisher that they’ve established agreements with Ibooks and Kobo as well. So my titles will eventually be listed there as well.

Most of you know I am on night shift. So, I promoted release day even as I was waking up. Which was followed by a message from a friend that “Beverly’s Secret” had already broken the top 100 at Amazon sitting at #92 on the Lesbian Romance list.

WOW! I hope everyone likes this fun lesbian contemporary romp.

I loved writing it.  And Makala’s recipe for Jambalaya that she cooked for Beverly is in the Rebel Ink Press cookbook project “Way to the Heart” A charitable donation will be made for every copy sold to Heifer International. @heifer  #rebelinkpress #charityproject #charitywork

What a great mother’s day present!
Now for “Beverly’s Secret”

Beverly Carter, clerk at Salynne’s Crystal’s and Thyme could have sworn she placed the amethyst necklace in the display cabinet. How did the gem end up in her pocket? She’d have to take it back to work in the morning and explain her mistake to the shop owner.

Trying the necklace on for just a moment couldn’t hurt anything. When the clasp won’t release she has to call on her next-door neighbor, Makala Reynaud for help. A woman that Beverly is very attracted to but hasn’t had the courage to approach. She hasn’t figured out how to confess her interest without outing herself prematurely. Bev’s pretty sure the woman is a lesbian too. What if she was wrong? So Beverly’s been stuck, just as stuck as the damn necklace.

Then, Makala’s red lips were just too tempting, too perfect, too close. Stealing a kiss could open a door to disaster instead of the closet on her sexual preference. Yet, the way Makala accepted the kiss and returned it with unabashed enthusiasm blew that door off its hinges.

They spent the night talking and exploring sex every way and everywhere possible in Makala’s small apartment. Beverly had to wonder if the rumors about the necklace were true. Was this some kind of spell that might only last the night?  Could this be the beginning of something magical?

Through the ages food has been seen as a way to commune with others, bringing fellowship to the table while nourishing the body. Food is key in celebration and in honoring. It’s also been commonly widespread everything from asparagus to honey to chocolate and oysters hold aphrodisiacal properties. But we at Rebel Ink Press believe not only is food nourishment for the body and fuel for romance, cooking is one of the sexiest and most nurturing things one can do for another.

It’s the way to the heart.

Rebel Ink Press presents The Way to the Heart, a collection of recipes from twenty-six Rebel writers, our charitable project for 2013. For every copy sold a charitable donation will be made to help nurture families and communities around the world through Heifer International.

Thank you for your purchase. By opening your heart, you’ll find the way to someone else’s.

In Dec, 2011 I was part of a collaborative team from Rebel Ink Press that wrote and released Paw Prints to raise money for animal rescue.200x300PawPrints

Then in Feb of 2012 Raynia’s Magic Released. I love this cover. I dream of having it framed as art work on my wall. LOL

Later that spring we re-released the Galloping Ghoul under it’s own cover apart from the Anthology. I think that cover is probably my favorite.

And today, Dar’kind Promises is released.  Maybe this is my favorite cover. LOL. Technically my fourth real launch. Somehow, for the first time it seems real. I have a giddy excitement and so much hope for the future.

Amethyst Desire Series continues with Beverly’s Secret

“Beverly’s Secret” is finished at 5,639 words and submitted to my editor at Rebel Ink Press. (Release date Mar/Apr 2013)  This short novellette is a follow along in the series “Amethyst Desire”. The first in the series, “Raynia’s Magic” a bit longer novellette debuted last Feb, 2012. What happens when a mysterious amethyst necklace enters the lives of people in this small town? Magic.

“Beverly’s Magic”

Draft Blurb:

F/F Erotic Contemporary Romance

Beverly Carter, clerk at Salynne’s Crystal’s and Thyme, could have sworn she placed the amethyst necklace in the display cabinet. How did the gem end up in her pocket? She’d have to take it back in the morning and explain her mistake to the shop owner.

Trying the necklace on for just a moment shouldn’t hurt anything. When the clasp won’t release she has to call on her next-door neighbor for help. A neighbor that Beverly hasn’t had the courage to approach. She’s pretty sure the woman is a lesbian, too. How to broach the subject without appearing a fool if she’s wrong? So, Beverly’s been stuck, just as stuck as the damn necklace.

Then Makala’s red lips were just too tempting, too perfect, too close. Kissing her first and asking second, “So do you play for the away team too? Ya wanna play on my field?” might have backfired. Yet, the way Makala accepted the kiss and returned it with unabashed enthusiasm answered all the questions left unasked.

Makala Reynaud certainly did want to play. They spent the night talking and having sex every way and everywhere possible in Makala’s small apartment. Beverly had to wonder if the rumors about the necklace were true. Was this some kind of magic that might only last the night? Or could this be the beginning of something magical with Makala?
