Welcome to this weeks blog hop. Each week a group of authors get together and share a little bit about themselves and their work. It may be a snippet of a book that is already available, or a preview of what they are working on. The great thing is that there are links on each page so you can hop around from one authors blog to another without going back to a central page. I, personally, have had a good time, reading what others are working on and picking up some new books. We all hope you enjoy yourselves and please leave some comments/feedback. We really do want to hear from you.
For the next few weeks, I'm going to drift away from the O'Malley series and share some tidbits from my other series, Sugar Babies, Inc. Currently, there are three books completed and I am working hard on book four. I hope to have it done sometime next month and I will be sure to give you a preview when I get closer.
Today it's all about Sugar Babies, Inc. Book 1, A Sweet and Sassy Match.
Blurb: Sam Barringer worked his way up from the slums of Philadelphia to a corner office with a magnificent view of Manhattan. A corporate attorney, Sam was a powerhouse in his field, making more money than he could spend. Still single, he watched quietly as his associates' marriages crumbled, one after another. It seemed there was always another beautiful gold-digger ready to take whatever the first, or second or third wife left up for grabs. Many of his male clients were ridiculously wealthy and so very alone, unable to trust their own judgment when it came to women. Yet, he knew, there were good women out there. The problem was they worked in coffee shops and school lunchrooms, as bus drivers and mechanics, hardly likely to meet a man who could and would provide them with security, love and guidance.
The men surrounding him were unhappy and frustrated, looking for something they were never going to find, despite their wealth. It was then that Sam decided to help, and Sugar Babies was born. Surrounding himself with positive, upbeat people, he resigned his position, left town and set up a matchmaking service. Quickly Sam discovered that there were a lot more men like him than he'd previously believed. Men who wanted a loving, respectful and somewhat obedient partner to share their lives. Men who were naturally dominant and firmly believed that disciplining their woman was sometimes necessary to insure a healthy, peaceful and long term relationship.
While scouting out a new location for a branch office, Sam meets Johanna Maxwell. Jo is beautiful, hard working and everyone's best friend. She could be counted on for house sitting, baby-sitting or pet sitting, or even a last minute loan, if cash ran low between paydays. In fact, the only person Jo didn't take care of was Jo. Sam falls hard, but can he convince Jo that his business is legitimate? More to the point, can he convince her that when he pulls her over his knee, it's out of love?
Excerpt: (Johanna has a spanking coming and she climbs out her bathroom window to escape Sam. Hearing her, Sam goes outside and finds her hanging by her knees from the window sill, unable to move without falling on her head. Her sweater is over her head from all her wiggling and she can't see a thing).
Plucking her from the window with one arm around her waist, he flipped her in the air and scooped up her legs. The lovely berry colored nipple, puckered in the cool night air, was just inches from his mouth.
He bent his head and covered it with his hot mouth, sucking and enjoying every second of it.
“Dammit, Sam; that better be you out there.”
Swirling his tongue over his prize, he suckled hard then bit gently before removing his mouth.
“Who else would it be?” he asked grinning as he began carrying her around the side of the house. “You are much naughtier than I thought, Johanna,” he mused out loud. “I like it.”
“Sam, please don’t spank me,” Jo begged pitifully. “I’ve had a really bad day.”
“It’s about to get worse,” he replied as he entered the house and kicked the door shut.
( I had to modify this a little to make it fit the required number of sentences.)
Thanks for stopping by,
This week for the Saturday Spanks Blog Hop I decided to post a blurb and excerpt from my very first novel, Changing Her Mind. Reading back through it as I searched for the piece I wanted to use, I found some errors, which I plan to get after as soon as I find the time. With each book, I learn more about my craft and hopefully, the story itself will hold your interest and allow you to overlook some of my boo boos.
Please feel free to comment and make sure you hop around to the other blogs linked here. I'm sure you'll enjoy it and find some new books to add to your summer reading list.
Mason’s in love and being a traditional kind of guy, expects traditional kind of things; like rings, rice, and church bells. Rebecca’s in love too, although she prefers to think of it as ‘in lust’. Oh, she wants him, badly, although if it’s all the same to him she’ll just skip the church and rice bit and go straight to the blazing hot sex.
Mason is a reasonable man, most of the time; at least that’s what he tells himself. He is determined to change Rebecca’s mind but as his frustration level sky rockets he begins to realize he might be a little less reasonable than he thought. Oh, he’s willing to give her blazing hot, it’s just not going to be the loving she wants, it’s going to be on her sweet bottom and he’s pretty sure it’s going to be fun.
“Married…..” Rebecca sank against the dresser in total shock, her eyes wide with disbelief. “You think because we made love last night we should get married? People don’t marry everyone they sleep with. Is this to assuage some form of guilt… because if it is you’d better know right now I’m not into human sacrifices, especially mine?”
“First of all I refuse to be just someone you slept with,” he all but shouted, hanging on to his temper by a gossamer thread. “And secondly, did it ever occur to you that we didn’t use any protection last night…that you could be pregnant?”
“Women have been having babies since the beginning of time Mace, some of them even manage to do it without a man,” she shouted back.
“Not my baby,” he shot at her before she could continue. “My child will never have to worry about that even if I have to paddle his mother’s behind all the way to the J.O.P,” he finished with a shake that sent her curls dancing.
Hi everyone and welcome as I take a shot at my first Blog Hop. The idea is that a group of authors get together and post an excerpt or snippet from one of their books, either a work-in-progress or something that is already available for purchase. Hopefully, if I do this correctly, there will be other authors linked to this post so a visitor can 'hop' around from one blog to another.
After thinking about this I decided to use my second novel, Little White Lies, for my post. It is really in Little White Lies, that readers get introduced to the O'Malley family when Maggie takes Nick to her parents house for Sunday dinner. That is where you discover the love this huge Irish-America family has for one another and begin to understand the family dynamics.
Blurb: Maggie O'Malley Cassidy has a problem. Well, actually several problems. She's a widow, raising three children and trying to make ends meet, or at least get close enough to wave to each other. She has the unfortunate habit of skirting the truth now and then, not really a problem unless she gets caught, but still a very tiny character flaw that she planned to work on just as soon as she has a free minute. But by far, her biggest problem is Nicholas Kord, who just found out that her oldest son, Jason, is also his only son. I mean really, who would have thought he'd show up after fifteen years and go all paternal on a child he hadn't even known existed. What were the odds of that coming back to bite her in the ass?
Nicholas Kord has his life on track; he is an accomplished attorney, and considered his trip home to be Best Man at his brother's wedding a long-overdue opportunity to reconnect with family and have a good time as well. He is still single and in all honesty, the man oozes sex appeal.
Nick was crazy about Maggie, always has been and always will be. When he saw his son for the very first time, he knew exactly who Jason belonged to and what Maggie had done. He was furious at first, but came to realize that a good portion of the blame fell on him. If he hadn't been so stubborn years ago, things might have turned out differently, but Nick is also a realist. The past cannot be relived; it's the present and future that matter. He still loves Maggie and he means to have her, one way or another, and he intends to cure her of her bad habits along the way. As far as he's concerned, Maggie had gotten her way for far too long, and it hasn't served her well. Her children need a father and whether she knows it or not, she needs a husband who will provide guidance and love; he can be all that and more. Nick has no problem applying a firm hand or taking a wooden spoon to Maggie's adorable butt when she misbehaves, which seems to be quite frequently. Who would have thought one knock on her door would change everything forever?
Excerpt: Locking the door, he twirled her into his arms and kissed her senseless.
Maggie’s heart pounded erratically as he briefly let her go, pulled her sweats and panties down and bent her over the washer. Before her tummy quit contracting from the cold metal, he was sliding heat into her from behind. Delicious tremors started even before he reached under her to circle her clit and she slapped her hand over her mouth. Being the gentleman he was, Nick grabbed a clean towel off the dryer and shoved it into her face which came in very handy a few minutes later when she screamed her pleasure into it. Nick, a member of the stronger sex, collapsed on her back and roared into her sweatshirt while waiting for his teeth to stop tingling.
“There. Let that be a lesson to you,” he scolded her. “It doesn’t pay to tease me.”
Maggie burst out laughing.
“It does Nick. It definitely does.”
