It isn't the string of crappy jobs, or people’s irrational urge to spend their money, or even his inability to ask Julie out on a date that Zach can’t get excited about Christmas. It is the fact that today is his last day he gets to spend in his preferred human form.

She punishes shape shifter Zach, by changing him to a dog. He has 48 hours to save his family and trade his life for someone else’s in order to break the spell—the only problem, Julie’s cat Miss Molly knows who he is and won’t let him near her owner. But Julie’s safety is the greatest importance and he sticks by her side. 

Julie can’t resist falling in love with the stray dog she rescues. She prolongs putting a found dog ad in the local newspaper just to keep him for another day. Strange thing is, the animal reminds her of Zach. 

Confronted with the woman who stole the man she secretly loves, Julie discovers the truth about Zach. When his dog form proves useless against the powerful alpha werewolf, the help comes from unforeseen allies.

Our Sexy Thanksgiving ~ @MySexySaturday




This week’s theme is our sexy Thanksgiving. Although the Thanksgiving in Canada has been and gone, our neigbours to the south are about to carve into their turkeys. I know what you’re thinking. Thanksgiving is about families. What’s more sexy than family?  After all each started with a story about a man and a woman finding each other and deciding on a family. Think of all the wonderful romances that happen at this time of year. You know the ones we’re talking about. Sister brings home friend, brother falls for friend and on and on.

So this week I want to show you all the characters love family. Julie is someone who doesn't have much of family and suddenly they finds herself with one, however unconventional. As a child, she has always looked in and wanted a home with all the trimmings including a family. There are many ways to be thankful and you'd love to hear some of those wonderful stories.

And here's the excerpt from my Christmas novella "Deck the Halls" available through December for only $0.99. 

No creature should be all alone on this frigid night and during the festive season. It was the time best spent with loved ones, but each year it served as a reminder to her of just how lonely she was. Julie straightened. “Okay, not sure what Miss Molly will think of you, but the more the merrier. Hop in.”
The dog took a step back, gave her a puzzled look and emitted a shrill whine. Poor thing, he almost seemed to want to say something. If he could talk this would be easy. “I know, you can smell a cat on this blanket, but it’s a short ride to my house. Hop in so we can get going.”
The animal wagged his tail low, but did not move from his spot.
“Don’t tell me I’d have to lift you in, because I don’t think I can. And I would like to keep the interior clean for as long as I can. It’s been less than a week since I took it to the auto detailing. Can’t you smell the fresh pine?” She drew in a long breath, the scent from the freshener dangling from the rear-view mirror filling her nostrils and waited while the dog’s pink tongue bobbed with his panting. He seemed uncertain, but of course he didn’t fully trust her yet. She was a stranger to him. Mist rose in front of his mouth with his loud breathing. 
“Okay, as you wish.” She was about to slam the hutch down, but the retriever moved faster and jumped in then barked. He must’ve disapproved of the smelly, tattered blanket she’d spread for him. Well, he was hardly in a position to be choosy.
“That’s better.” She ruffled his fur and closed the door. 

BLURB It isn’t the string of crappy jobs, or people’s irrational urge to spend their money, or even his inability to ask Julie out on a date that Zach can’t get excited about Christmas. It is the fact that today is his last day he gets to spend in his preferred human form.

I’m Too Sexy~ @MySexySaturday

This week’s theme is I’m too sexy. No, not those arrogant boys who really aren't sexy. We’re talking about those who are and those who are a little over the top about it. Sure, sometimes there is that arrogant hero, or heroine, who will tell you they are too sexy for whatever task put before them. Then comes the fall. And we love to read about the fall.

We love bad boys, we love good boys…heck, let’s just face it…we love men. And we love the girls or boys that love them. 

And here's the excerpt from Bonded By Crimson, the first time Matthias kissed Kate after their six years separation. 




Go to him. Go. Her mind screamed, but she halted, reluctant to link her arm with his.
He nudged her. “Come on.”
Oh, what the hell? she decided. What did she really have to lose? She knew he was too kind a man to ever cause her harm. With a sigh, she took him up on his offer, her
uncertainties slowly dissipating.
Their feet padded on the park’s narrow paths as they strolled along without saying a word. She cast him a few glances, hoping he’d break the silence. But he only smiled and
squeezed her hand. They reached the park’s cement wall. There was not a soul about. The entrance stood a few steps to their left, illuminated by two dim lights. With a hard pull of his hand,he swung her around to face him.
He caressed her hair. She trembled, fearing he would kiss her, terrified he wouldn’t.
She stared into his eyes. Deep pools of blue, they held hers captive, weaving a spell of desire. This ancient park, this immortal man, the atmosphere, all combined to surround her heart with magic.
“To hell with the pretenses,” he growled, cupped her face in his hands, and crushed his lips to hers.


My debut novel “Bonded by Crimson” has been released on January 28th 2012, and it is available in all formats at Black Opal Books, Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble Kobobooks and All Romance eBooks

A Sexy First ~ @MySexySaturday

Welcome to this week of My Sexy Saturday. 

This week’s theme is a sexy first. A sexy first could be anything: a sexy first kiss, a sexy first meeting, a sexy first spaceship ride with that sexy someone. And no matter what your concept of a sexy first may be, you love to read all about that wonderful moment.

So here's an excerpt from my paranormal romance "Love Remains" depicting Tom kissing Olivia for the first time. Only, it wasn't the first time for Tom. In his world, they are married for the last six years. In hers...not at all. She is hard core corporate b**ch and has no scrupulous when it comes to earning that next promotions and subsequently, a nice raise in pay that comes with it. She has no desire to tie herself down with a husband and a kid or two. So you can only imagine her surprise when she arrives home from a business trip to find what she despised the most. But love does have a funny way of helping us through. Would she give the love a fair chance? 




Before he reached the garage side door leading into the house, she stopped him. “Where did we meet?”
One hand on the doorknob, he smiled at the fond memory. “In the campus library, by the entrance there was a huge photocopier. You came in and scanned the room as if searching for someone. When I saw you, I said something like, ‘How can a man concentrate with so many girls around? What a gorgeous girl.’”
A grin lit her pretty face. “That was you?”
Tom gasped and hope kindled in him. “You remember?”
“I remember someone said those words, but that was it. I never dated the guy or knew who said it. Until now.”
“You gave me the dirtiest look ever and left. I ran after you and we had a coffee in the cafeteria.”
“See? In my life I walked away. Our stories differ. I am not your wife, but I’ll pretend to be until this is over.”
At his sigh of exasperation, she pursed her lips. How he yearned to kiss them. Her soft yet eager lips pressed against his throat and trailing down his chest during their last lovemaking, flashed in his memory. He wrapped her in his embrace and pulled her to him. “I don’t want you to pretend.”
His lips crushed hers and she welcomed him with her warmth and a soft moan, leaning into him. Her hungry kiss reminded him of their first date when he’d taught her the difference between lust and love. He pulled away, and judging by her pouty lips and closed eyes, he left her wanting more. “Why are we standing here in the freezing garage? Let’s go in.”

A Sexy Date Night ~ @MySexySaturday

This week’s theme is a sexy date night. We all know what a sexy date night is. Everyone has had that wonderfully sexy man ask us out and just knew it was going to be a very special time. No matter what your concept of date night may be, I'm sure you'd love to hear all about that wonderful evening.

Well, the Halloween is done and Christmas is yet again upon us, so it's not too soon to think of this magical time of year. 

Here's the excerpt from "Deck The Halls", my paranormal holiday novella. Julie took Zach in his dog form to help her deck the halls of one last minute customer. She feared the job will take her an entire day, but with Zach's help, she could even afford an after lunch nap. 



Curled up in the passenger seat, Zach nestled his head on Julie’s lap, staring at her sleeping face. Twice now she’d called him her dog to other humans. It made his heart flutter, yes he was hers. Whatever the outcome of Tia’s curse, he’d won. Julie was his. If only he’d mustered enough courage and asked her out on a date, he could’ve made love to her for real, caressed her firm, petite body, fondled her large breasts and round buttocks. Nonetheless, her pleasure had rushed through him like an avalanche that morning. Each time she’d whispered, called or screamed his name, he wanted to burst out of his dog form, run into the shower stall and give her what she craved. 

A heavy sigh escaped him. The unselfish act of trading his life for someone else’s in order to break Tia’s spell had pressed heavy on his mind all day. He’d barely concentrated on Julie’s requests to bring her things from the box next to her vehicle. Whose life was he supposed to save by offering his own? Few were worthy of such sacrifice, Lexa and his mother topped the list. Tia could put them in grave danger just to see him suffer. But Tia’s dirty ways were familiar to his family, or what was left of it.  So that narrowed it down to Julie, and hard to imagine, Molly. Yes, he would trade his life for the feline’s. He stared at the weak sun on its slow decline toward the horizon, less than a day left to break the curse. What if ‘a life for a life’ opportunity didn't come? Would he forever continue to exist as a man’s best friend?  

BLURB

It isn’t the string of crappy jobs, or people’s irrational urge to spend their money, or even his inability to ask Julie out on a date that Zach can’t get excited about Christmas. It is the fact that today is his last day he gets to spend in his preferred human form. 

When jealous Tia, a wicked sorceress disguised as the pack’s alpha female, tries to force his wolf out a day early, all-consuming anger sends him into a rage against her. She punishes shape shifter Zach, by changing him to a dog. He has 48 hours to save his family and trade his life for someone else’s in order to break the spell—the only problem, Julie’s cat Miss Molly knows who he is and won’t let him near her owner. But Julie’s safety is the greatest importance and he sticks by her side. 

Julie can’t resist falling in love with the stray dog she rescues. She prolongs putting a found dog ad in the local newspaper just to keep him for another day. Strange thing is, the animal reminds her of Zach. 

Confronted with the woman who stole the man she secretly loves, Julie discovers the truth about Zach. When his dog form proves useless against the powerful alpha werewolf, the help comes from unforeseen allies.

A Sexy Halloween ~ @MySexySaturday

Welcome to this week's edition of My Sexy Saturday.




This week’s theme is a sexy Halloween. Bet you never thought Halloween could be sexy. But what is more sexy than Halloween? We love witches, goblins and everything that this day has come to mean. Of course, for some it’s Samhain and that’s cool too. We just love things that go bump in the night.

However, I don't have a Halloween romance. No, not really, I do actually, but it's still in my head. Need to get it out on the paper, or in my case on the page of Word document. 


What I do have is a high school sweethearts very much in love, but torn apart by the heroine's parents who forced her to marry for money. After fourteen years she comes back home to find their love never died. But she's on the run and danger follows her...


Here's an excerpt from my work in progress titled "In The Stars" where the lovers come together after decade and a half during the masquerade. 


 Dario returned to his seat, but had hard time paying attention at the band on the stage. Ana knew how to dampen his rare good mood. He took a deep breath and brought the beer to his mouth. A girl clad in a red cloak approached the bar, her deep hood hid her face, but the swaying of her hips reminded him of Irena. She squeezed between his stool and the one next to him. The citrus perfume was Irena’s branding.

 Holding her glass, she faced him and downed the orange drink, then licked her full lips. “I missed this.”
            “Easy sister, there’s plenty of night left.” He leaned closer, peering into her hood, but could only make out half her face. And her flawless ivory skin and slender neck under that round chin, she was a beauty.
            “No worries, I only drink half a shot of vodka.” She placed the tumbler on the bar and flashed him a smile.
            Half a shot of vodka in her screwdriver, one girl drank it that way, Irena.
            The girl took two steps away from him, but halted and turned her head to look over her shoulder. Was she waiting on him to follow her? Perhaps he should go after her. She continued on her way, keeping a slow pace. He was a few steps behind.
            Ante intercepted him at the exit, showing brown bottle at him. “Leaving so soon? You forgot your beer.”
            “Hold it for me.” He waved him off never taking his eyes off the red hood, slowly disappearing in the crowd. 
            “You're kidding me? Hold it for you? Are you expecting to find beer left when you get back?” Ante’s shout grew louder with every word.
            Dario glanced at him. “Fine, drink it up.”
            When he raised his eyes at the crowd on the street, the red hood had gone. Damn it, she was here a second ago. Had he seen a ghost from his past? No, she war real and she couldn't have gone too far. He stepped out on the cobblestone paved road of the old city, searching for her. At the corner he spotted her cloak and followed her. In an instant she ran into the narrow alley.
            ‘Wait,” he called.
            She spun in his direction and placed her finger over her lips.
            Then she took a sharp left turn, skipped the two steps and entered a dark vault. How could she know of this place? The secret make-out hole he’d taken Irene to spend time alone with her away from prying eyes.
            He approached. His heart pounded, ready to jump out of his chest. Could it be her? It must be.  “Who are you?”
She panted in the corner. Slowly she faced him and pulled the hood from her head, revealing the rest of her. “Have I changed that much?”
His heart stopped for a moment. The dark brunette hair, cascading down to her shoulder and framing her petite face, a face that haunted him for the past fourteen years was finally in front of him for real.
“Dear God, it is you, Irena.”

A Sexy Thriller ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday

This week’s theme is a sexy thriller.

Well, I don't have a romantic thriller. What I do have are the scenes that best show sexy characters and their sexy romance in a thriller type atmosphere. How they fell in love, what they do to stay in love and all the little details in between. The good, the bad and the ugly as it’s those situations which pull you closer to those characters.

And so I give you excerpt from my debut novel, a paranormal romance "Bonded By Crimson"




His tender voice had a calming effect on her frail nerves. He took  the glass from her hand and placed it on the coffee table.
A tear rolled down her cheek. He cupped her face and wiped the droplet away with his thumb. “Don’t cry. Please.”
She shivered at this touch. He slid his hand behind her neck, pulling her into his embrace.
In spite of her better judgement, her arms rose and slipped around his neck. She was in Heaven, enveloped in his masculine scent.
“Matthias, at last, at last. I waited for so long.” What the heck was she saying? The yearning inside her tightened her chest.
“No, my dove. You mustn't do this.” He brushed her hair back. A pained smile stretched his lips before he let her go.
Kate took a step back, holding her hand pressed against her heaving chest. “I—my head feels better. I’ll return to my room.”
He bowed. “You do that.” The cushions of the white chair bent under him when he sat.
She charged up the stairs. Had she gone insane? Acting on impulse was so not her. His dove, he called her. She snorted. Only Miles would use this special pet name for her.
Miles. The last time she’d thought about him had been during her talk with Mr. Zrin that first day. Could her creation of a fantasy lover possibly have returned in the body of a human? Of Mr. Zrin? Maybe the ghost of her past had entered the doctor’s mind so he could be together with her again. Miles hadn't occupied her mind once since she wrote his life story—when his constant presence in her thoughts almost drove her
crazy. But a terrible emptiness had swamped her after he disappeared, leaving scars in her soul. Mom had taught her not to believe in fairy tales, not to be
a dreamer, because life was too hard for nonsense. Mom’s word was law in her life and yet, Kate had written a fantasy novel. The bedding crinkled as she pulled the coverlet over her head. The pill Mr. Zrin had given her had kicked in fully. Her eyelids drooped. Right now wasn't the best time to sort out her confused feelings between the real Mr. Zrin and the imaginary Miles.
