Before she could reply, his lips merged with hers, shutting her up, sending all thoughts out of the window. His kiss was packed with passion. Soul-searing. Bone-melting. Her heart raced, her stomach fluttered, desire for him swarming her body with powerful shameless sensations.

She didn’t know how long he kissed her. Only that she didn’t want it to end.

What was this crazy deal her father had struck? #teaser #comingsoon #amwriting

So I'm back in my writing cave finishing off Bound to Ransom, Bound series book 2. For those of you who've read book 1, Bound to Fate, you'll know this is Gloria and Henry's story. I've got a teaser for you. Read on heart emoticon
PS: This is a first draft and unedited.


****

EXCERPT

He patted Gloria’s hand and stood up. “I’m going to head off now.”
“Okay, I’ll grab my things, Daddy,” she said as she stood up and picked up her bag.
Her father heaved a sigh. “No, Princess.” He met her startled gaze. “Remember what we discussed. Henry signed the papers taking over Rawlins Constructions. The deal is effective immediately. This means you’re not coming home with me.”
“I’m not?” Gloria’s voice squeaked as her wild gaze went from Daddy to Henry and back again.
“No, Princess. You belong to him now. If you come home, the deal is voided and Mr Coker will repossess everything. I’m sorry.”
“No!” Gloria grabbed her dad and hugged him tight, not wanting to let go. Tears burned the back of her eyes. What was this crazy deal her father had struck? Was she never to see him again?
Daddy pulled back and his eyes appeared glassy. “You’re going to be alright.”
He brushed his lips against her forehead before turning away. “I’ll see myself out, Coker.”
A lump lodged in her trachea as she watched her father walk out of Henry's office.


****

BLURB

Since the death of her mother, Gloria Rawlins' life has been a string of disappointments by the people she cares about; first by her father and then in a series of disastrous relationships that have shattered pieces of her heart one after another. She knows she's no angel and refuses to make herself vulnerable to anyone again. Until one man threatens to strip away the wall shielding her heart.
Henry Coker is not afraid of challenges. Abandoned by his father and raised by a single mother, he's had to work hard from the bottom up to prove himself to his peers and the world. But Gloria, the one person he desires above all others remains out of reach until an opportunity presents itself and he has the chance to buy her from her father.
Despite their incongruous arrangement, desire like theirs cannot be hidden and passion sizzles between them. But making someone fall in love may just be a challenge too far.
Bound to Ransom is a story about breaking the cycle of self-destruction, finding redemption and the powerful love that endures.

Bound to Ransom is coming March 2016.

He beamed a bone-melting smile #sexysnippets #asmsg Bound To Ransom #comingsoon

Welcome back to sexy snippets. This is a fun weekly meme where we share 7 sentences from a published book or work in progress. Feel free to join us by adding your sexy snippets post link HERE or check out the page on Facebook or Twitter.

This week I'm excited to bring you a snippet from my upcoming book, Bound to Ransom (Bound Series, book 2), which I'm currently writing. This is still in a first draft so pardon any errors.
*****


“Gloria, come on in,” Henry said in a cheery voice.
James had been right. She barely recognised Henry. He was wearing a suit, a navy blue two piece that looked like he’d been to Saville Row and had measured and sewn to fit him exactly.
Her breath caught and she nearly stumbled. He looked so edible.
He beamed a bone-melting smile as he stood up and walked toward her.
Her cheeks heated and she hoped to avoid him by walking in the other direction but he intercepted her and placed his hand on her shoulder stopping her movement. Her breath caught as her skin electrified on contact.

Writing about an American dream turned nightmare. Meet @BSwanginWebster #authorchat #giveaway

Happy Friday, sweeties. I'm glad to welcome another author to my blog today for an interview. Please give a warm welcome to B. Swangin Webster as she talks about writing and her book, Let Me Just Say This.


Q1) Welcome to my blog, Sandra. Can you tell us a little about yourself
I am about to turn 50 and can’t wait to get my AARP card. I am the mother of 5 children and 9 beautiful grandchildren. Although my children are beautiful too. I am a lover of all shoes higher than five inches and wear them every day and all day. I am also the author of two novels and working on novels 3, 4 and 5 right now because I’m like a squirrel and can’t do just one thing at a time. I am a GREAT cook and just waiting for the Food Network to offer me a show. I even have a title for the show already, “Books and Cooks” pretty catchy, huh?

He shouldn’t be looking at her #sexysnippets #asmsg #amreading Bound To Fate

*****

He shouldn’t be looking at her. Any decent man would’ve turned his back to her or even returned to the living room. He did neither.

Her skirt slid down her hips, past a black lace thong that presented her bum cheeks to him as she leaned over to pull the skirt from her legs.
All the blood in his body rushed south and his dick hardened. Painfully.
She straightened and turned around. He’d never seen her this bare before. His breath caught. She was beautiful. Slimmer than he remembered, but still beautiful.

Bound to Fate is out now and available in ebook and paperback from all the usual book retailers.

Bound to Fate is a story about surviving tragedy #Giveaway #ASMSG #MidweekTease

Yay! It's here.
The day has finally arrived. Bound to Fate is officially out and available to purchase in ebook and paperback.

First let's have a mid-week tease.



Puffing out a breath, he scrubbed his hand on his head. “Lara, you are a special girl. You’re intelligent and I really see a wonderful future for you. But you’re not eighteen yet and I’m twenty-one. I’m the adult here and I’m also your teacher. There’s nothing between us. Now, I’m going to take you home and we’re not going to discuss this topic again. Understood?”
Her gaze darted to him, her eyes over bright.
“But I love you, sir,” she replied in a shaky voice before she turned away to stare straight ahead out of the windscreen.
His breath hitched. Tightness returned to his chest and his stomach sank. Tilting his head back on the rest, he closed his eyes. It would’ve taken a lot for her to make that confession. His admiration for her racked up a notch as the urge to pull her into a hug fired in his veins along with the desire to kiss her and confess his true feelings for her.
 Don’t be reckless. Think of the consequences. An image of his brother cautioning him loomed large in his mind. His brother had always been the sensible of the two of them. If Ike had listened and complied with the advices, his brother wouldn’t be dead now.
Puffing out a resigned breath, he opened his eyes. Instead of responding to her declaration, he turned the ignition and the car kicked to life. As he indicated, checked his mirrors, and pulled into the lane, numbness settled over him.
He’d have to break her heart. It was the only way to save her.


Now for the blurb:


Lara Johnson is coping with the emotional scars of losing both parents in a tragic incident and facing the challenges of starting a new school. Getting involved in a relationship isn't on her priority list. Certainly not this illicit desire for a man, who demands the best from her, yet leaves her breathless in his presence.

All Ike Thomas wants to do is to keep out of trouble and get through the one year internship required for his degree program. But trouble finds him, in the form of an intelligent and brave girl who turns his world upside down. Falling in love is forbidden. So why does it feel so right?

A love like theirs cannot be denied. But catastrophe lies in wait and one night changes their lives forever.

Bound to Fate is a story about surviving tragedy, forgiveness, and the overwhelming love that pulls through against the odds.
