Giveaway Alert!


A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, a private investigator, no one can handle the heat like the men of BOSS, Inc.

Megan O'Brien is at her wit's end. Her three-year-old son has been kidnapped. No police, says the ransom demand. Fearing for her son's life, Meg has no choice but to turn to her former bodyguard, Dirk Reynolds.
Dirk's never forgiven Meg for the way she left him after their brief affair. But with bounty hunter Luke Brodie on his side, Dirk knows he's got to help Meg rescue her son.

The few clues they've gathered send them spiraling into a murky world of high-stakes gambling and international crime. Meg may be way out of her depths, but she's seeing a side of Dirk she never suspected–one no woman could possibly resist.



Megan O'Brien parked at the end of the gravel driveway and quietly got out of her compact SUV.  Through the trees, she could hear the roar of a chainsaw, hear see two-by-fours going up to form the sides of the house under construction. 
     The garage was already finished, undoubtedly full of Dirk's toys, including a Harley and a custom Dodge Viper.  In the summer, he kept a boat docked on the lake below the house.
     Though two other men were hard at work, her gaze went straight to Dirk.  Hammer in hand, carpenter's belt dangling low on his waist, he was shirtless, though the January air was chill. 
     Hard muscle flexed across his back and shoulders as he pounded in a nail with an ease that said how many times he had done it.  Long, sinewy muscles outlined by the soft fabric of his jeans stretched and moved as he worked on his house.
     Meg's gaze went over the familiar dragon tattoo that wound over one shoulder and inched up the side of his neck.  The colored ink seemed right with the sexy, short-cropped, horseshoe mustache that framed his mouth and curved down to his jaw, making him look like the hard, tough man he was. 
     Even her terrible fear for her son couldn't block the memories of how it had felt to lie with him.  Couldn't lessen the yearning that burned through her body just at the sight of him.
     On the fashion show tour, Dirk had been her bodyguard, and though every instinct had warned her not to get involved with him, the fierce attraction between them was impossible to resist. 
     Once the tour returned home, Meg had ended the affair.  Dirk Reynolds was wild and fierce while she was a single mother with a son to raise.  She had duties, responsibilities. 
     She couldn't have Dirk Reynolds.    
     But she had never gotten over Dirk. 
     Meg steeled herself and headed along the gravel driveway toward the house he was rebuilding after the fire that had nearly killed him five months ago.  One thing she knew, Dirk Reynolds was a hard man to kill.
     Which was the reason she had swallowed her pride and her heartache and come to him.  She needed him, trusted him as she never had another man.  Her little boy's life depended on gaining this man's help.  This man she had loved and rejected. 
     She stepped out of the foliage and started toward him.  With Dirk's usual keen senses, he turned, alert that someone was there, though the buzz of the saw hid the sound of her footsteps.
     For several long moments, he just stared, watching as she approached.  He was six-two, his body lean and sculpted.  Wavy dark brown hair curled at the nape of his neck.  She forced herself to keep walking, even as his jaw locked and a fierce scowl darkened his face. 
     Dirk grabbed a faded blue work shirt and shrugged it on, covering most of his amazing chest.  He didn't bother fastening the buttons, just strode toward her, blocking her view of the house. 
     He stopped right in front of her.  "What are doing here, Meg?"
     "I need to talk to you.  It''s urgent."
     "You're trespassing.  What do you want?"
     She swallowed, fought to stay strong.  He didn't want her there.  She had known he wouldn't.  Known he thought of her only with contempt.  She wished he would hold her the way he used to when she was afraid.  "I...I want to hire you."
     The corner of his mouth edged into a ruthless half smile.  "What for?  Stud service?"
     She wanted to cry.  She wanted to beg his forgiveness.  Tell him she had never forgotten him.  That she never would. She knew it wouldn't matter to Dirk.  Not anymore.
     It didn't matter.  Nothing mattered, but saving the life of her son.

Chocolate Covered Figs

One of my favorite scenes in my new romantic suspense novel, Tell Me No Lies involves figs, chocolate covered figs to be precise. For thousands of years, cultures around the world have considered this fruit a visual aphrodisiac based on the fact that when unpeeled the fig looks like a certain part of the male genitalia, and when split open, bears an uncanny resemblance to the female's- ahem - private parts. Because the fig provides visual stimulation in the same way a sexy image might, you could say, that figs are food porn, literally.

And of course modern scientist have discovered that chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine and serotonin, which are both "feel-good" chemicals. They occur naturally in our bodies and are released by our brains when we are happy or feeling loving or passionate. It produces a euphoric feeling, that mimics the human physical expression of love.

In addition to those two chemicals, researchers at the Neuroscience Institute in San Diego, California, say that chocolate may also contain substances that have the same effect on the brain as marijuana. The substance is a neurotransmitter called anandamide. The amount of anandamide in chocolate is not enough to provide the "high" commonly associated with using  marijuana, but it could be enough to contribute to the good feelings that serotonin and phenyl ethylamine produce. 
With the inclusion of chocolate-covered figs in Tell Me No Lies, you might guess that the scene is a romantic one. It is. But it's not a sex scene. It is, however, sensual. And important. The conversation held while the heroine prepares the chocolate-covered figs is pivotal to the romantic arc of Tell Me No Lies main characters, Rain and Kael.

I suppose I could have had Rain roasting oysters, grilling asparagus or slicing beets, because they are all aphrodisiacs too. But as an author, a self-professed foodie, and an actual food blogger, I select the food and beverage I use in my stories with great care. Though aphrodisiacs, the aforementioned foods do not provide the right image or set the sensual tone I desire. Because I view the food and beverages my characters consume in my stories as a prop, one that helps to develop their character and enhance the scene, nothing is left to chance.

Does it surprise you to know that I and other writer use food and beverages as props in their stories? Writers have a responsibility to their readers to do more than just tell a story, and paint a vivid picture. The writer is also tasked with creating a three-dimensional world in which the reader can experience the story through all of the senses. Using food is just one of the ways in which I endeavor to create this world for my reader.

Figs bring to mind ancient cultures, exotic women lounging on chaises as they're being fed figs by their servants. Hot sands, balmy breezes, flashing dark eyes and secret rendezvous... Whispered secrets, stolen kisses and fevered caresses. Or at least, that's what I think of...And melted dark chocolate? Luxurious, velvety-feeling sweetest that provides an immediate rush of happiness. 

Why choose figs and chocolate over other aphrodisiacal food? Together they almost provide stimulation overload and that too provides accurate symbology for the scene I wrote. Let us not forget that chocolate and figs are divine together. The taste of some foods, especially the juxtaposition of sweet against complex smoky bittersweet can transport the eater to mystical places. Tracing the outlines of a voluptuous fig can provide tactile sensations. Even the sound of your teeth breaking into the hard shell of the chocolate only to sink into the soft, moist honeyed flesh of the fig can be arousing. Therefor, chocolate-covered figs stimulate all of our traditional senses: sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste.

To give you a little background on the scene, Kael Brady is a guy with secrets. He can't tell anyone about his job. He's an assassin. He's afraid to tell the woman he loves, that he has particular sexual interests.  He likes it rough. His life is all lies and secrets, and his dishonesty even unintentional almost cost him the woman he loves. But I digress. He's convinced himself that he can be with her and not frighten her away with the intensity of his passions... by keeping it "missionary, for" her sake.

It is a challenge for him to deny his carnal wants. It's a big part of him, one he's not use to suppressing and it takes a Herculean effort for him to do so.  But for her? He's playing it straight as an arrow. Kael would buy Rain the moon if she asked. He'd do anything to prove to her he loves her, do anything to make her feel safe... However, the result is that inside he's seething with desire for her and the tension between them is thicker than molasses on a winter's day

But then she surprises him. 

This is that scene. But only an excerpt!

“I’ve been thinking about…” she began, her voice soft and husky. She stopped stirring and turned to look at me. “I bought a book.”

Something in her voice caused a thrill of excitement to run up and down my spine. “What kind of book?”

She turned to face the stove again. “The Marquis de Sade wrote it.” She said it so softly, it was almost as if I’d imagined it.

The Marquis de Sade? I had antique copies of his works in the library at my farmhouse. But she couldn’t know that. “Which one? He wrote several.”

She didn’t answer and I could only stare at her, intrigued and confused. The word sadism, the act of deriving pleasure from pain, was derived from his name. He was a French aristocrat known for his erotic yet violent writings. Eventually he was imprisoned and determined mentally insane because of his promotion of violent sex.

Why would she read one of his books, unless…my heart thumped loudly against my chest.
“Justine,” she finally said. “And then Juliet. I suppose they are the tamest of his works.”

I stood. I had to see her face. “Why would you buy those books, baby?”

She removed the pot from the stove, placing it on a wooden cutting board. “I wanted to understand.” Her fingers still curled around the pot handle, and I saw that her hands trembled. “Pain as pleasure, pleasure as pain. I feel like you’re keeping something from me. I want to understand you, Kael. I want to know you.”

She’d noticed. And I’d thought I’d done such a good job. “What do you think I’m hiding?”

She avoided my eyes, instead went to the refrigerator and pulled out a tray of fresh figs. Her back to me again, she turned on the cold water.

She looked at me over her shoulder, her bottom lip trapped between her teeth. She shrugged, an expression of hopelessness on her face. “The book?”

I moved closer to her. “What about it?”

She gently washed each fig and placed it on the counter. “It was titillating.” She kept her gaze forward. “But I don’t understand it…in practical terms.”

I swallowed hard. “What did you understand?”

She selected the first plump fig, held it gently by its stem and looked at me. “That some people are turned on by other people’s pain.”

I could feel the darkness welling in me. “And?”

She dipped the fig into the chocolate, rolled it around in it until it was covered, dripping with thick brown sauce.

“It’s sick,” she whispered. “Disgusting.” She placed the fig on a rectangular tray covered by a sheet of parchment and reached for the next fig.

“And yet you found it titillating.”

Yeah, so that's the chocolate-covered fig scene. Like I said, it's only a tiny part of their conversation, but it gives you the general idea. Rain goes on to actually make the figs, she and Kael finish their tête-à-tête, and... well, you'll have to read the book to find out what happens next.

But, I can give you the recipe for the chocolate covered figs that Rain makes in my novel, Tell Me No Lies.  There is an addition to the recipe provided - coarse sea salt and rosewater. Rain doesn't use either in her recipe in the scene, but if I could go back and rewrite the scene she would. Because roses are also an aphrodisiac. Not just symbolic of romance, roses effect our auditory and visual senses. But you already knew that. But did you know they also contain phenyl ethylamine, one of the feel-good chemicals found in chocolate? 
Chocolate-covered figs are enough. Tastes delicious. Looks beautiful. Gets you in the mood. But the addition of the sea salt and the rosewater just takes it to the next level!

See for yourself.


1 Dark Chocolate Bar. (The percentage of cocoa should be 75% or higher.)
2 Tbs Coconut Oil, cold pressed, unrefined.
8-10 fresh figs, washed and dried
Coarse ground sea salt
1/4 teaspoon of rosewater
1. Place large pot of water and turn oven on to a medium heat. Place smaller pot inside the larger one.
2. Add chocolate and coconut oil to smaller pot and stir gently as it melts. 
3. Fold in the rosewater to taste.
4. As soon as the chocolate is melted and thoroughly mixed with the coconut oil and rosewater, holding the fig by its stem, slowly lower the fruit into the pot and dip into the chocolate.
5. Place the dipped figs on a parchment-lined plate.
6. Once all the figs have been dipped, sprinkle with sea salt and place them in the freezer to set. Freezing usually takes about 20 minutes and then can then be stored in the fridge.
7. Allow the chocolate to cool and harden completely before serving.

I love to write about food and wine, and I incorporate both liberally into my novels, like  Tell Me No Lies published by Samhain Publishing on May 17, 2016. Tell Me No Lies the beginning of The Black Orchid series which follows sexy, kinky assassins… (wait for it…) and the women who love them.

I have to warn you, the heat level in Tell Me No Lies is mighty hot with elements of BDSM. Oh, okay… it is scorching hot. But if you can stand the heat… click on my Books page for more details.

Midnight Quest

Congratulations to "Jayne", the winner in Lisa Marie's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

MIDNIGHT QUEST is a folllow-on to MIDNIGHT VENGEANCE, the book where Jacko and Lauren fall in love.

My job as a writer of romantic suspense is to take two people who have nothing in common, put them together and apply heat and pressure--sex and suspense. Just as carbon turns to diamonds under heat and pressure, so do these characters. I have to convince you, the reader, that these two characters, the hero and heroine, not only desire each other but love each other as well. It's the best job in the world. 

But the thing is, in a romantic suspense, more or less everything is artificial. Life events are on steroids. The stakes are high, danger is around every corner, events roll across the screen in breathtaking succession. It's a roller coaster ride and that's what makes it fun. The characters are having hot sex and falling in love while fighting for their lives. They declare their love, the hero--with the help of the heroine--offs the bad guys, true love conquers all and the book ends.

But what about afterward? I just love knowing about what happens to couples after the Happily Ever After. As a writer, my characters stick with me for a long time, and Jacko and Lauren have been in my head and heart for a couple of years now. I know them well. I know they are really happy together, but...Jacko's carrying a lot of baggage around. He'd never admit it, never show it, but there is a lot of stuff in his background he hasn't dealt with.

Stunning news from Lauren opens doors in his head he thought he'd locked shut years and years ago.

Monsters must be fought and conquered before Jacko and Lauren find the real Happily Ever After, but boy, is it worth it!!

I hope you all enjoy this glimpse into Jacko and Lauren's future in MIDNIGHT QUEST. 


Lauren was laughing as he twirled her around, soft dark hair belling. “You’re early! Oh my gosh, I wasn’t expecting you until tomorrow night. How’d you get away so quickly? Did you have to shoot someone?”
“Nope.” He smiled down into her silver-blue eyes. “I was a good boy. Didn’t shoot anyone, promise. I just got everything done I had to do and came home early, that’s all.”
“But surely your trip—”
He kissed her. She was going to fuss over whether his trip had been inconvenient and tedious and tiring, and yes, it had been all of that. He didn’t want to talk about it and kissing her was the best possible distraction. Throw her off course.
The kiss distracted him, too.
When his mouth touched hers, he got that mild electric shock he always got when he touched her. Like she was the conduit for some otherworldly source of energy, and maybe she was, because his life felt flat when she wasn’t there.
He kissed her until he felt he was melting into her, until she turned boneless in his arms.


He comes from nowhere. 

Jacko is not afraid of anything or anyone. He has faced down the stuff of nightmares as a Navy SEAL. Now he is facing an enemy that terrifies him—his past. 

Lauren is the love of his life. But how can he be the man she deserves if his past is shrouded in mystery? 

Lauren loves Jacko just as he is. She doesn’t know where his quest will take him-- she can only hope it will lead him back to her. 

But Jacko's relentless search for the truth of his past will unleash a deadly enemy hellbent on destroying everything he loves most...

Exclusive Excerpt of ARMORED ATTRACTION

With: Janie Crouch

Congratulations to "Tammy Y.", the winner in Janie's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

Book 3 in the Omega Sector: Critical Response series, ARMORED ATTRACTION, releases in just a couple of weeks. I’m thrilled about this book because it features Liam Goetz, who has been by far, the most witty, charming and outrageous supporting character of books 1 and 2.

Liam has quite the reputation with the ladies, but no one –even his closest friends and fellow Omega agents— know about the heartbreak in his past concerning Vanessa Epperson. As the story unfolds Liam comes to realize maybe he doesn’t understand everything about his heartbreak either.

Exclusive Excerpt of ARMORED ATTRACTION for JRS readers

Chapter 2

Liam listened to the voice mail message for the umpteenth time.

Vanessa Epperson.

He could honestly say he’d never expected to hear her voice ever again. After all, she hadn’t even cared enough to leave him a voice mail eight years ago when she’d decided he wasn’t good enough to marry.

Or a letter. Or an email. Or a face-to-face explanation.

But evidently she’d gotten over her phone aversion. Good for her.

Liam played the message again.

She needed help and was contacting him because she thought he was still DEA. He hadn’t been DEA for more than five years, since Omega Sector’s Critical Response Division had recruited him to lead their hostage rescue team.

Fortunately for Vanessa, since Omega Sector was made up of agents from multiple different law-enforcement agencies—FBI, Interpol, DEA…hell, Liam had worked a mission with a damn Texas Ranger last month—her message had been recorded and immediately forwarded to him.

She didn’t mention what sort of trouble she was in, just wanted Liam to drop everything and help her. Like how she’d always wanted everyone to drop everything to do what she wanted. Some things didn’t change.

He listened to the message one more time.

Liam should call one of his many friends from the head DEA office in Atlanta and have them send someone to Nags Head. Or he might even know someone at the FBI field office in Norfolk he could call.

It was the logical thing to do; probably the most professional answer to this situation. He could have someone there handling Vanessa’s problem in three or four hours.

But who was Liam kidding? He wasn’t going to make those calls. He was already walking down the hall of the Critical Response Division’s headquarters to his boss’s office.

He wasn’t sure what he was going to tell Steve Drackett. Just that he needed some time off to help an old friend. God knew Liam had enough time off saved up.

He knocked on Steve’s office door, his back office door that led directly to Steve himself, rather than pass through the main office entrance guarded by Steve’s four assistants.

Four young, attractive, quite competent and intelligent female assistants.

Liam knew them all; flirted shamelessly with them all. He’d spent so much time in the office with those women that Steve had threatened to fire him several times.

Not that Liam dated any of them—he knew better than to date anyone who might have his life in her hands—but at any given moment he’d be leaning on their desks chatting, and keeping them from their work.

Liam smiled. Steve’s main office was one of his favorite places in the world to be.

But not today. Not right now. He could not go in there and flirt with those beautiful women with Vanessa’s voice still filling his head.


One secret can change everything 

It's been eight years since Liam Goetz has seen his ex-fiancé. Vanessa Epperson had everything: beauty, brains…and a family fortune. He chose her, while she chose a life of luxury and never imagined their paths would cross again. An unexpected phone call from Vanessa—desperate for his help in a human trafficking case—resurrects old longings. As they work together to save hostages and catch a predator, Liam begins to learn some shocking truths—about himself and the woman he thought he once knew so well…
