"Let’s go find some privacy.” Gabe whispered, trailing feather-light kisses down her neck.
Nina pulled away from him, laughing. “There’s no one here.”

“It’s the way you look at me…,” Athena began slowly, trailing her fingers down his hard chest. “It turns me on.”
Gripping her hips, David pulled her forward and she fell against him. “Then we should do something about that,” he murmured huskily.-HIS BEDPOST QUEEN
“Can I?” Carlos asked, his voice low and deep. "Taste you?” He trailed his tongue lightly across her lower…

If you couldn’t be an author, what would your ideal career be?
If I couldn’t be a writer I’d probably do something with animals. Maybe become a dog trainer or a vet tech. My husband and I rescue dogs and we have 13 of them! They are our fur-babies, our hobby, and our own private little money drain. LOL We love every minute of the time we have with them.  

Besides writing, what other things do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Hubby and I love to go out to eat. I go to the movies with my daughters on the weekends; take shopping trips with my mom, sisters and girls; and walk my dogs through the woods. I also try to do power yoga whenever I can. It’s good for my body and soul!

"Authors in Bloom" Blog Hop: Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Image
Welcome to the "Author's in Bloom" blog hop! For this hop, I wanted to send share a classic recipe: grilled cheese sandwich. It's is a favorite of Mikey's, my heroine's 4-year old son from BECAUSE THIS IS FOREVER, and a easy, classic dish for anyone to make.

Grilled cheese can be made in a variety of ways—with tomato, with bacon, with mozzarella (or any other cheese). Mikey enjoys all things cheese so his favorite is the classic.

How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? If grilled cheese is not for you, what's your favorite kind of sandwich?

April Showers...

April showers brings May flowers.

Truer words. Lately we've had a very wet few days with the oncoming rainstorms. I, however, have been stuck in my home with other pouring obligations, the major commitment being the 4-book series I so ambitiously embarked on...

Deadlines are the theme for this month and I will be tied to my computer for the next three weeks! But in May, the fruit of my labor will blossom in time for an exciting summer. I will also be revealing the covers for the Queen Quartette series, which I have promised since February, but this time I mean it! ;)
