She is in so much trouble #MidWeekTease #MWTease #ASMSG Making Scandal

Welcome back to Mid-Week Tease hosted by the lovely Sandra Bunino, where writers share teasers from our work-in-progress or published books.

This week I bring you another teaser from Making Scandal as I continue to revise the manuscript. This scene follows on from the last mid-week tease and Mark manages to persuade Faith to go out for some Suya and they head to the beach. It is in Faith's POV.

If you're wondering what suya is, check out this photo and recipe of how to make your own. It's a great outdoor food.

This hasn't been to my editor yet, so forgive any errors. Enjoy.

Faith followed the queue of cars until she found a space to park on the beach. As a location used for concerts and other entertainment events, finding a spot would've been difficult.
Not this evening. Miles of uncluttered white sand and gentle crashing blue waves greeted their arrival. Copper and red flickered in the distance, flames from a bonfire licking the briny air.

Was she doing it right? #SexySnippets #ASMSG Making Scandal

Welcome back to Sexy Snippets. Sorry, I'm late with this today. It's been one busy weekend.

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).

This week I'm bringing you a sexy snippet from Making Scandal. The scene describes itself. *wink* Enjoy.

She pumped him a couple of times and leaned forward, flicking her tongue around the bulbous head. Mark's groan deepened, encouraging her. Opening her mouth, she swallowed the tip into her mouth, sucking as deeply as she could, her hand wrapped around the base.
She'd never done this before but she'd read enough books to know the basic. Was she doing it right? Flicking her eyes upward, the image Mark projected locked her breath in her lungs.
His head tilted back onto the tiled wall, his eyes closed and his hands clenched and unclenched at his sides, as if he stood at the ledge of his control, fighting to not tumble over.
Powerful pleasure rocked her body, turning it to jelly and making her glad she was already on her knees.

What do you think? Who said kneeling down couldn't be a powerful position? LOL Leave me a comment. And check out these other sexy snippets.

This is how you make me feel #MidWeekTease #MWTease @JorjaLovett

Welcome back to Mid-Week Tease hosted by the lovely Sandra Bunino, where writers share teasers from our work-in-progress or published books.

This week I bring you a teaser from a lovely author and friend, Jorja Lovett, and her latest book, First Floor: Cosmetics, part of her Department Store series. The book is out now, so if you enjoy the teaser, go and download it. :-)

The cosmetics department is now open! First Floor: Cosmetics is available for early download at Totally Bound.

Blurb


Take one younger man, add some illicit outdoor sex, and Maggie Fenton is inclined to forget she’s the oldest cosmetics girl at Kelsey’s Department Store.

From the outside, it looks as though Maggie Fenton has it all. The glamorous head of the cosmetics department lives a life of luxury, but money definitely hasn’t bought her happiness. In reality, she’s married to a serial cheat who has made her life a misery for over a decade. With her husband chasing younger women, and her teenage co-workers’ catty comments ringing in her ears, Maggie’s resigned herself to being on the scrap heap. Until Jonah Hamilton puts temptation in her way and reminds her she’s still a red-blooded woman.

You fascinate me - Making Scandal #MidWeekTease #MWTease #ASMSG

Welcome back to Mid-Week Tease hosted by the lovely Sandra Bunino, where writers share teasers from our work-in-progress or published books.

Last week, we met Faith and saw her perspective on Mark (from Making Scandal). If you've read Keeping Secrets, then you probably wonder what happened between the two of them the night they all met up with Felix and Ebony for the first time. Well, wonder no more. Here's a teaser from that scene. It is unedited.

"Why didn't you return my call?" Mark asked after the waiter had taken their drinks orders.
"I've had a very busy week at work," Faith said, lifting her shoulder in a blasé shrug in an attempt to mask the more than casual sensations twirling in her belly.
"Is that the real reason or are you avoiding me?"

Boredom. His expression reeked of it #MidWeekTease #MWTease #ASMSG

"HE is so good-looking."
Stella Orovi walked over to where Faith Brown was tapping away at the screen of her Samsung Galaxy tablet. She placed the drinks she'd just ordered on the table. Faith gave her a quick warning glance to mind her tablet before returning to continue typing out what she was doing.
