A test of trust this had to be #SexySnippets #asmsg Scores

Welcome back to Sexy Snippets. This weekly meme is hosted by The Nuthouse Scribblers where we share seven sentences from a published book or work-in-progress. If you're a writer, feel free to join us by signing up at the Sexy Snippets page. Sign up opens every Tuesday and closes midnight every Saturday (UK time).

If you read my Mid-Week Tease, you'll know I'm writing again. Scores, to be precise. If you read the teaser, you'll also know it ended in a cliff-hanger of sorts. Well, I thought I'd share the next 7 sentences from the WIP. If you haven't read the MWT, you might want to read it to understand the context here. This is a first draft and unedited.

A test of trust this had to be. To stand still and not look back when all her instincts screamed at her to find out what was going on behind her.
Senses heightened, Selina listened out, breath held, holding perfectly still as her fingers gripped the railing tight.
"Good girl."
Approval. His words washed over her, settling on her skin like a warm blanket, comforting and safe. Exhaling, she relaxed a little as anticipation thrummed in her veins.

Can they outsmart a vicious assassin? Truth or Consequences by @Sharon_Cooper1



I'm delighted to have the lovely Sharon C. Cooper on my blog today with her latest book. Please make her feel welcome.



Description
Hospital Chief of Staff Natasha Lockham’s life has been all about work and no play. That is until a one-night stand with a man who lives his life on the edge, turns her sexual fantasies into reality. She never expects to see him again, but their paths cross when Natasha suspects an esteemed doctor of committing an unspeakable crime against his patients and danger lands at her doorstep. The closer she gets to the truth, the more she realizes she’s not prepared for the truth – or the consequences.
Former Navy SEAL, Malik Lewis, will always remember the night he spent with Natasha. It was the single most amazing night of his life. So when Natasha narrowly escapes a brutal attempt on her life, Malik stops at nothing to protect her, including hunting a man whose skills match his. Can Malik and Natasha outsmart a vicious assassin who has nothing to lose? And will they ever get to explore the sizzling passion between them that neither can deny?

What would you like me to do? #MidWeekTease #asmsg Keeping Secrets

Welcome back to Mid-Week Tease hosted by the fabulous Sandra Bunino where writers share excerpts from published works or works-in-progress.

This week, I'm sharing one last teaser from Keeping Secrets. It'll be that last teaser from this book for a while as I return to writing a new story. The final instalment of Benjamin and Selina's story is screaming to be finished. You'll get a teaser from that next week over at the Passion Shields blog.

In the meantime, I'll leave you with a little from Felix and Ebony in Keeping Secrets.  I think the scene describes itself. I hope you enjoy it.



Ebony walked out of the en-suite bathroom and stopped. Felix sat on the bed, taking his shirt off. At the sight of the broad shoulders, taut pectorals, and rippling bicep muscles, her breath caught in her throat and a warm shiver crept up her back. Fascinated, she stared at him with undisguised hunger, lips parted, body flushed.
He tossed the shirt aside and their gazes met. His cheek dipped with a dimple, his smile oh-so-sexy.
Lava pooled low in her belly. She swiped clammy hands over the silk negligee covering her thighs.
What was the matter with her? Felix had been injured, sex probably the last thing on his mind. She needed to concentrate on making him comfortable.
“Can I help you with something?” she asked, keeping her tone jovial. But her face heated up when his lips curled in a wicked grin.
“Sure, you can. Come here.” His deep, husky voice sent her heart racing with anticipation. Her awareness of him racked up to scorching level.
Legs trembling a little, she walked over to him and stopped at arm’s length. Desire filled his eyes, turning them into fiery onyx. An ache settled in her core, a need for him to kiss her again, to feel his hands setting her skin ablaze. She wanted to taste him, to touch him. Yet, she hesitated.
“What would you like me to do?” she asked, not sure if he wanted help with his trousers, unable to keep her eyes away from his stomach muscles tapering into them. She tried to keep her thoughts on what needed to be done. The loose-fitting cargo pants were probably the only things he could wear with the plaster cast on his ankle. With zippers at the sides and on the hems, it could come off easily
“Come closer,” he demanded in a low, growling voice.

Have you ever loved someone and didn’t even know it?

That’s the dilemma facing Felix Essien when he wakes from a coma to find he is married to the most beautiful and sensual woman he’s ever known. He cannot remember her or their wedding; he who had sworn never to get married or to give his heart to another. Yet, he feels an intense bond with her that he intends to explore fully.

Ebony can’t believe her good fortune when her paper husband wakes not remembering the temporary marriage arrangement with no intimacies he’d proposed, and is now the adoring husband she’s always dreamt of.

She plans to make the most of the passion blossoming between them. However, would he still feel that way when he regains his memory and realises she’s been keeping secrets and their marriage is not what he thinks it is?

She soothed his disquiet #sexysnippets Unbound #PNR #asmsg

Welcome back to Sexy Snippets. This weekly meme is hosted by The Nuthouse Scribblers where we share seven sentences from a published book or work-in-progress. If you're a writer, feel free to join us by signing up at the Sexy Snippets page. Sign up opens every Tuesday and closes midnight every Saturday (UK time).

It is with sadness that I announce that the Blood Bar Chronicles - The Enforcers anthology will be going out of print in a few weeks. If you haven't read this anthology yet, the next few days will be your last opportunity to read all the stories together.

So this week I bring you a sexy snippet from my paranormal story in the anthology, Unbound.




"When your soul was in limbo, I waited." A shadow crossed his eyes as the anguish of the long wait for her soul to reincarnate returned. He had served out the sentence with her. It was torture to be eternally bonded and be apart. While she couldn't sense him, he sensed her and her pain. And lived it every day. "When you were born into the human body all I could do was watch you from a distance. I wasn't allowed to contact you, just watch over you, and keep you safe."

She must have seen the torment in his eyes because she moved closer to him and hugged him tightly, squeezing his body affectionately, her head tucked in his shoulders. He was taken aback. However, he held onto her, grateful for the contact quelling his disquiet.
