Teaser Tuesday Snippets



Welcome to Teaser Tuesday. Each Tuesday, I will post a snippet of a book from my personal bookshelf. Some books may be fiction. Some may be on the craft of writing. Here's today's selection.

"She forced her gaze from the empty fairgrounds they were passing to the austere beauty of his face. Her heart skipped a familiar beat. "Why don't we just go back to one of the hotels? There're two of them that not only have our scent all over them, but come complete with a bed and hot shower."

Here's the Blurb:



A scarred recluse, Jagr makes no secret of his disdain for others' company. But now, as a member of Chicago's powerful vampire clan, he has certain obligations to fulfill. The latest: track down a missing were pureblood and return her to her sister. The problem: Regan Garrett has no intention of complying. An though Jagr agreed not to harm an inch of this stubborn female's distractingly tempting body, he'll gladly kiss her into submission, awakening an urge he hasn't felt in years. Hell, in centuries...
Regan vowed never to be at the mercy of another man. That goes double for arrogant, steel-muscled vampires with eyes of ice. All Regan wants is revenge against those who imprisoned her. She doesn't need an ally. She certainly doesn't need a mate. But soon Regan will have to choose--between a lust for vengeance, and a passion as dark and dangerous as the night...

Teaser Tuesday Snippets



Welcome to Teaser Tuesday. Each Tuesday, I will post a snippet of a book from my personal bookshelf. Some books may be fiction. Some may be on the craft of writing. Here's today's selection.

"She was a strong, independent woman. A business woman. The sole supporter of herself and her child. Caretaker of her mother. A good friend, an excellent neighbor. She didn't need a man to make herself complete, but that didn't mean she didn't enjoy having one around."

Here's the Blurb:

Twenty years ago the town bad boy, Cam Murphy, left Eternity Springs in handcuffs, riding in the back of a sheriff's van...and breaking young Sarah Reese's heart. The defiant teenager vowed never to return.
In Australia, Cam makes a new beginning. He builds a successful business and suffers few regrets until Sarah--and their daughter--walk into his life, and then immediately run away. Realizing it's time to right yesterday's wrongs, Cam follows Sarah home to Colorado--and turns her world upside down.
Cam wants to know his daughter. He needs to prove to Sarah, the town, and himself that he's changed. Will the residents of Eternity Springs offer forgiveness--and will Sarah have the courage to trust this man asking for a second chance?

Great Book! Check it out.

Happy Father's Day




Like Mother's Day, this a repost from an earlier year. Things have been a little rough this year for my family. Dad has been a constant through it all. Here is the earlier post:

My Dad is a pretty cool guy. He likes to play with the children of our family. He's a fantastic fan of tickling. He's not happy unless he has had one of us screaming with laughter while being tickled. He has his own speech and sign language that everyone of us at some time has spoken and/or signed with him. He watches kid shows and cartoons with some of his great-grandchildren. He makes every effort to "save" his grandchildren and great-grandchildren from punishments that we, as parents, attempt to enforce. (He did not same thing when we were kids when Momma tried to punish us.) With the death of a majority of his siblings, he has embraced their children as his own and is always enquiring of their welfare.

I did not post anything yesterday as I spent the entire day with my Dad. He started the day at breakfast with my Mom, Dad's sister, my Brother, my Son, myself and three of his ten great-grandchildren. He received numerous well-wishing calls from some other grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as other relatives and friends.

Later in the day, we took my Dad to his favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrel. He ordered his favorite meal which is a farm raised catfish dinner. He was well and truly stuffed when he was able to get up from the table and leave. This was a great "pick me up" for him as he has been ill lately. He really enjoyed the day.

This year instead of spending the day at my Dad's favorite restaurant with him, we are visiting with him in hospital. And, like the earlier post, I and my family will spend the entire day at the hospital.

Get well quick Dad, Happy Father's Day. I love you.

"The water glowed in the middle with a flickering orange-red flame. The colors made the water seem even more inviting, and she walked over to the pool to give herself time to collect her thoughts. She had made the decision to see this through, now she just had to figure out how to maneuver her way through the pitfalls."
