It wasn't just a one-off affair #MidWeekTease #MWTease #ASMSG

Welcome back to Mid-Week Tease hosted by Sandra Bunino where authors share excerpts from our work-in-progress or published books.

This week I'm deep in my editing cave working on finalising Making Scandal in preparation for publication in a few days. And I got to thinking about the little threads that link the entire series together.

So this week I thought I'd share a teaser from Keeping Secrets and a scene that refers to a central theme of the entire series--Chief Essien's extra-marital affair and it's impact on his 3 sons. In this scene, we see Felix's perspective on the issue.

She didn't resist his lips' onslaught #SexySnippets #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.

This week I'm going back and bringing you a sexy snippet from An Engagement Challenge. The scene describes itself. Enjoy.

He couldn’t stop his legs from moving forward as if of their own will toward her. He reached for her, pulling her against his body. Trailing one hand to the nape of her neck while the other wrapped around her waist. He tilted her head up and claimed her lips hungrily.
Her soft gasp floated in the air. Still, she didn’t resist his lips’ onslaught. Instead she wrapped her arms around his neck, her body clinging to his in seemingly wanton supplication.
 You can find out more about An Engagement Challenge here.

Her body burned with fever #MidWeekTease #MWTease #ASMSG

Yay! It's Wednesday and time for a Mid-Week Tease, thanks to the lovely Sandra Bunino who organises the weekly meme for writers to share excerpts from their works-in-progress or published books.

This week I'm bringing you a teaser from Island Bound. This is a story very close to my heart. I wrote this exactly 2 years ago while I was pregnant and somewhat hormonal so a lot of the tension and emotions I was feeling at the time went into this story. Those of you who have read it will understand what I mean. For those who haven't read it, I hope you enjoy this teaser.

You'll crave no other man but me #SexySnippets #ASMSG

Hello, sweeties! I've had a few busy weekends recently that meant I haven't participated in Sexy Snippets. With kids on holiday, I've had family and friends coming and going plus weekend trips away, like the trip up to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games in early August.

Luckily, I have a little respite this weekend. Making Scandal and Scores are both with the editors, and I need to get back to writing Worth A Challenge. There isn't really a 'sexy' scene in it yet. So for today, I bring you one of my favourite scenes from His Strength book 2 of the Men of Valor historical romance series.


He caressed her breasts gently through her clothes, holding them delicately like they were prized possessions.
"I intend to suckle your ripe breasts until you beg me for more," he whispered softly against her ear, his voice coated with a husky tinge. "I'll touch and taste every part of your body till I stamp my brand on you. You'll crave no other man but me."
She held her breath in anticipation as his hand traveled down her body, stopping just above the apex between her legs.
"And when I get to your honey pot, I'll dip my tongue as well as my fingers in there and drive you crazy until you scream for me to take you any which way I choose. Shall I show you?"

When a warrior seeks to claim a free-spirited woman, he soon discovers a tigress unwilling to be caged.

As a young widow, Nneka yearns to be released from the obligations to her late husband’s family, and live as an independent woman. With a past colored by a brutal father, she’ll never yield to another man willingly, and will do just about anything to attain that freedom, including flouting the laws of the land.

Ikem was unable to claim Nneka once because his lineage meant he wasn’t good enough. Now fate has given him another chance, but he quickly discovers that claiming this unpredictable wildcat is easier said than done. Will he be able to convince her that succumbing to their passion is the key to her freedom?
Where to buy:


Did you enjoy the snippet? Ikem was a complex and fun character, dominant, and yet very romantic. Leave me a comment. I'd love to know what you think. And don't forget to check out these other sexy snippets.

I'm going to kiss you now #MidWeekTease #MWTease #ASMSG Making Scandal

Yay! It's Wednesday and time for a Mid-Week Tease, thanks to the lovely Sandra Bunino who organises the weekly meme for writers to share excerpts from their works-in-progress or published books.

I'm so happy the Making Scandal manuscript is now with my editor. Finally. I can have a breather. So I'm going to share one final teaser before the book comes out.

This scene describes itself. It is the unedited version so pardon any errors. Enjoy.


Stepping into the cool, dark interior, her eyes took a few seconds to adjust to the gloom as the driver shut the door. The shadows gave Mark an air of danger, like a lion in his den. A shiver ran down her spine. Male spice scented the air, triggering the instinct to sink into his strong arms. He always had that effect on her. Enough. She shook off the sensation and stiffened her back.
"Hi, sweetheart."
Opening his arms, he reached for her shoulders. She tilted to the left, dodged his questing fingers and swung her arm. The slap connected with his bristly jaw.
"Don't call me sweetheart."

She wanted him again #MidWeekTease #MWTease #ASMSG Making Scandal

Happy hump day, peep! Blogger has been messing me about today, so sorry for the delay in today's post.
Welcome back to Mid-Week Tease hosted by the lovely Sandra Bunino, where writers share teasers from our work-in-progress or published books.

We continue with another teaser from Making Scandal as I continue to revise the manuscript. I'm really trying to get the revisions done so I can send to my editor.
In this scene, Mark and Faith have just had explosive sex but the post-coital bliss might not be altogether blissful. It is unedited. Enjoy.


Mark towered above her, hands on hips. His dark eyes glimmered with such intensity, a black hole that sucked her right in, her heart thudded loudly.
"I don't think I've ever seen you more beautiful." The gruff cadence of his voice vibrated through her.

Get ready for The Summer Heat by @ElodieParkes #book #interview

Happy Monday! I have interviewed the lovely Elodie Parkes who has a new book out. Stop by and say hello.

Q1) Welcome to my blog, Elodie. Can you tell us a little about yourself
I’m English and live in Kent right now. I work in a tourist driven antiques emporium. I have a couple of dogs and they often come to work with me if I’m traveling to pick up antiques or working in the renovating area, or the back offices where we do graphics and produce the auction brochures.

Q2) Have you always wanted to be an author?
Well, I’ve always written stuff. I don’t know that I wanted to be anything specific for a long time. I went to University (college) and I have three different degrees and grad. dips. Then when I couldn’t get work in any of the fields I’d studied I traveled for a couple of years doing all kinds of work in Europe and Australia. Then came back, applied for the job I have because I could use lots of my skills in it and there you are. I’ve written stories since I was seventeen and had a couple published in magazines, along with some poetry. I had stories on my computer for years before I finally submitted and was published again.
