Book Excerpts

Excerpt #1
 She felt the buildup of tension on the trip back. And she knew it came from an obvious source, that anticipation of a goodbye kiss. She didn't know what to expect or how she would respond. Her feelings were conflicted with the person sitting next to her being so friendly, so engaging. She couldn't keep that nagging voice in the back of her head away for long. And it kept warning her that not everything was as it seemed. Still, she liked Sean, couldn't help but like him. She forced that thought to stay with her as they said goodbye.

"Well, it's been nice, Mira Stanley. I enjoyed your company despite the ugly conversation about your view of my partner's notorious brother. But we won't go into that again," he said.

His words touched her face with short brushstrokes of his breath as his face came within inches of hers. Closer and closer it seemed. And each inch pushed her heartbeat to race faster and faster. "Um hmm," she answered, since her thoughts refused to form into words.

"And I hope you feel the same way," he whispered and came closer, backing her against the door.

Now, Mira could only see parts of him, but she focused on his lips as they brushed against hers, his voice drowned out the pounding of her heart. But when he touched her, the beating stopped. His kiss made her stop everything. All thoughts and feelings focused only on one subject. That kiss. And whether foolish thinking or not, she wanted it to last forever.

Excerpt #2
 Mira stepped inside the office. In the darkened room her hand slid over the wall until she touched the switch. The lights blinded her for a second, but as soon as she adjusted, she crossed the room to get into Bradley's office. The clock on the wall told her Bradley left the building almost ten minutes ago. Sean stressed he could give her a half hour at most. She figured that left twenty to twenty-five minutes to get the job done. The realization left a sense of panic rise in her. She forced herself to remain calm by picturing Claire without a home, no fireplace mantel to rest Charles' urn upon, and no familiar rooms to remind her of him and their moments together. Relaxed, she started for the file cabinet, but after a few steps she stopped.

"If I were Bradley Lane, where would I hide important papers? Papers I didn't want anyone else to see, not even my secretary?" Mira deliberated aloud while she walked around the room. Her eyes searched, stopping at every object to consider it before she moved on.

"Voila," she exclaimed as she felt underneath Bradley's desk and found several buttons. She knelt down to crawl under the desk and to take a look. She discovered each labeled button served a separate function. One called for Gwen, another triggered a projector screen to descend, yet another ejected a bar from behind a sliding wall, and one appeared unmarked. She pushed it with one finger and held her breath to see what would happen. At once a small drawer slid silently out from the bottom right corner of the desk.

I sat up and pulled my knees in close to my chest.  Electricity flared in the air as Luke inhaled.
“You know, Logan, you’re not who I expected you to be,” he said, taking a long thought-filled pause.  “I thought the next twelve months were going to be hell living with a California socialite, but you’re pretty amazing.  I guess I owe you an apology.”
“So, it’s a good thing that I’m nothing like you expected?” I asked.
“It’s a really, really good thing.”
As I started to smile back he craned his neck to look away from me.  His eyes focused.  Something black flashed across the road but I was more scared by Luke’s reaction.  The warmth had vanished from Luke in a heartbeat.  The object stopped moving toward us when it got to an opening between the trees.  Even though I could feel Luke’s concern, I leaned forward toward the window, curious.  It was a wolf – a really big wolf, staring directly at us with bright green eyes.  It was close enough I could see quick breaths escape into the crisp rain-drenched air.  I was startled when the engine roared to life.  Luke threw the car into reverse, and I nearly slammed into the dash as the sound of gravel scattered everywhere.  He quickly jockeyed around and pulled back onto the road heading home.  I kept my eyes on the wolf until he was no longer in sight.
“Was that a wolf?” I asked.  Everything happened so quickly, I had to be sure.
“Yes,” he spit.
“I’ve never seen a wolf before – that thing was huge.”
Luke immediately turned to look at me with an expression that I couldn’t begin to read.
“What’s going on?” I pressed, puzzled.
When he looked toward the road and didn’t answer, I knew my question needed to be more specific to get results.
“Why are you freaking out?  It was just a wolf.”  I was worried.  He had gone from warm and comforting to moody and distant over such a small thing and I second-guessed how quickly I had fallen for him.
“Because I need to get you home, it’s getting late,” he muttered, failing to control his tone.
“That doesn’t make any sense, Luke.  I have no curfew and you flaked as soon as you saw the wolf.”
“Wolves are dangerous.”
“We were in the car,” I countered.
“Doesn’t matter.”

Paul got on the bed, leaned in close and instead of continuing what Tremaine thought he would do, he slid himself sideways and pulled her into an embrace.

Genre: Contemporary Romance | Suspense | New Adult
She seduced the wrong captain, and that's just the beginning ....

Cole Carleton, captain of the cruise ship Sunset, decides to capture Tania's heart after she mistakenly seduced his twin brother. After a night they’ll never forget, he finds out what really brought her aboard in the first place. 

Is Tania only using him to rescue her sister, a young woman snared in a deadly web of international sex trade? 

Tania Shevchenko will do anything to save her sister, and her sizzling attraction to the cruise ship’s captain may be more of a distraction than an advantage. Proudly carrying her new American passport, she boards the ship and discovers there's more to life than working hard -- and the sinfully sexy Captain Carleton is willing to be her guide to all of it.


She seemed so damned comfortable with his touch and everything he said, he was knocked completely off his game. His thoughts ran away from him while he fantasized about her perfect, creamy skin, her breasts pressing against him, immediately triggering another unbrotherly hard-on he was sure she was aware of.
Okay, so yeah…he and Jack had let a few of their female friends sleep it off in here, and Jack was going to be  pissed when he found out Cole brought a relative stranger to stay in their personal quarters. But he couldn’t stand the thought of not being able to see her whenever he had a few minutes. They’d just met, but already he’d made her cry and he was obsessed with her. What the hell?!
Tania sat down on the bed and patted it for him to sit next to her. He did what she wanted, realizing she was sweet but not shy. And there’s something in her eyes…something I’m feeling too. She smiled, wiping her eyes and sniffing away her tears. Sitting this close to her, he had to work hard not to let her full lips distract him from what she was saying.
“I’m sorry I cried,” she said, “As you know, I did not sleep on the plane, I’m tired.” Pausing, then choosing her words carefully, she locked eyes with him. “Will you tell me something, Cole? Are you married or are you with somebody, like the woman who called you sweetheart?”
“I am not married and have never been married, and no, that woman is not my girlfriend. I don’t have a girlfriend.”
“But you’ve had lots of girlfriends, yes? And they sleep with you because you’re beautiful.” His eyes widened and he took a deep breath when she took his cap off and ran her fingers through his longish sandy brown hair, twirling the part curled onto his neck around her finger. Now she was focusing on his mouth and when she licked her lips, well…
Cole was completely undone by her gaze, her lips, her touch, but he laughed anyway. “You’re trouble, girl. That’s what I’m going to call you, Trouble. You follow me and seem to trust me for absolutely no reason, and you’re making me nuts. Why did you come with me?”

If she told him the whole truth, the real reason she was on this cruise ship, he’d run. Or worse, he’d throw her out. She was nobody, she had nothing, but she liked him, she…desired him. And she needed his help. Plus, she couldn’t take her eyes off of him! Normally a hard-working, serious girl, Tania hadn’t been with anyone, hadn’t even been to a party in years.
 But she was here for her sister. And though she wasn’t sure why, she did trust him. She ignored his question, smiled and doubled back to hers.
“I notice you did not answer me about your girlfriends.”
“Does it matter to you?” He turned to her and put a little kiss on her shoulder.
She felt the heat coming off him and leaned in a little. “It’s yes, then. You’ve been with many women. And I’m okay about it.” She felt the red-hot blush on her face. “Did I say it right?”
He pulled back and watched her face, a smile pulling at his lips. “You’re good with it, you’re okay about it, yeah.” Cole’s voice had a rich, deep sound that soothed and thrilled her at the same time. He raised an eyebrow and ran a finger along her chin. “Why?”
Now the heat spread from her face to her neck, and from there to places unknown, ones she would like him to know. “I…uh…I’ve only had one boyfriend. When I first came to the States, when I spoke very little English. He was a Ukrainian boy, and he was the only one I could talk to. I was with him for a few years, we had sex, but I never…uh…I never….” Her voice trailed off.
Tears burned her eyes because she didn’t understand why she was even telling him about this. It was like some other woman’s voice coming out of her mouth, completely unreal.
He put his hands on her shoulders and ducked, grinning, his gaze more intense. “Soooo…you’ve never had an orgasm. Is that what you’re trying to say?”
Had she really asked this beautiful stranger to show her how to have an orgasm? What am I doing?! This is insane! This isn’t important, isn’t why I am here. But everything about him made her happy to be reckless and young for a change, seeking pleasure with this big, beautiful wolf of a man.
She nodded and looked down, red-faced. “My girlfriends say I’ve been re-virginized.”
Cole nodded, suppressing a laugh ’cause she looked embarrassed. And her blushing was so funny. He couldn’t remember ever meeting a women this pretty who was so innocent and easy to read. Beautiful women tended to learn how to mask their feelings, how to deflect unwelcome attention. He pulled back and looked closely at her again, examining her eyes for any trace of hesitation. There was an unmistakable fever in those big brown eyes, a heat. “I can help you with that. You want me to, right?”


After a career in public relations and advertising, I got tired of writing half-truths and decided to write the whole truth – love is all you need! 

When I read Sylvia Day’s Bared to You, I started devouring romance novels and began fantasizing about my own characters and writing down their sexy thoughts and encounters. 

After writing Captain’s Orders and developing four other novels, I can now look forward to embarrassing my family by writing hot stories about the many ways men and women get together.
