Sneak Peak Sunday

Here's six paragraphs from my soon to be released contemporary romance "There Goes the Groom". My heroine Olivia has just had a confrontation with the host of a TV morning show when she tried to make a pass at Tony:

“I’m sorry I said those things to you,” Olivia said. “I was unkind and unprofessional.”

Melissa smirked. “Honey, I understand completely. You’re jealous.”

Olivia couldn’t believe her ears. “What?”

“Let’s face it, Olive. You wouldn’t be all steamed up if you weren’t so hot for the good doctor yourself.”

“That’s ridiculous!”

“Really?”  Melissa gave her a mocking smile. “I don’t blame you, Olive. He is one fine specimen of manhood.” She lifted Olivia’s left hand. “Oh, but what’s this I see?  An engagement ring? Oh, that must be frustrating for you. Here you are, working with this gorgeous hunk of man, but you can’t touch him because you’re engaged. And someone like you would insist on being loyal. Much like a Labrador Retriever.”  She sighed dramatically. “I pity you, really I do.”
"There Goes the Groom", the second book in my Left at the Altar series, releases May 17th.

Sneak Peek Sunday - Her Best Man

Here's a sneak peek from the first book in my "Left at the Altar" series. After Sarah's fiance, Will's brother, runs out on her during their wedding ceremony, they both find themselves on a cruise ship in the Carribbean, sharing a cabin and forced to pretend to be newlyweds. Here they are at their first night at dinner on the cruise ship:

Ted’s love for Josie shone in his eyes, despite her lack of tact.  He knew all her foibles, weaknesses and plain old stupidities and he still loved her.  Sarah wondered why someone couldn’t love her like that.  She stared at her engagement ring and thought of the day Brad had given it to her.  She’d been so happy and so hopeful of a wonderful future.  But now all her plans and dreams were gone, her hopes of having a family of her own dashed.  How could he have done that to her?
The sob seemed to come from the pit of her stomach, working its way up her body until it just burst uncontrollably out of her mouth.  She covered her mouth with her hand, shocked by the emotion as well as by the tears flooding out of her eyes.  To her surprise she found herself being drawn into Will’s embrace.  She sniffled against his shirt, embarrassing herself further by getting his shoulder wet.
“It’s okay, Sarah,” he whispered.  In a louder voice she heard him speak to the rest of the group who had stopped in mid-chew to stare at her. 
“Sarah’s had a very difficult couple of weeks,” he began.  This was it, she thought.  This was where she got outed as a fake bride.  She sucked in a breath.  If he told the truth would he go to jail?  Would she? 
“We don’t have any rings because a few days before the wedding the jewelry store where we purchased our rings burned to the ground.  Our rings were lost and Sarah was devastated.  As you can see, she’s still emotional about it.”
Sarah sniffed against Will’s shoulder.  What?

Will's very good at telling stories. He comes up with a few doozies during this cruise! To read a blurb and another excerpt from "Her Best Man" please go to my

A Sneak Peek at "There Goes the Groom"

There Goes the Groom
 Today is Sneak Peek Sunday! I've included a hot little peek at my upcoming May 17 release, "There Goes the Groom", the second book in my "Left at the Altar" series. Enjoy!

Tony stood with his arms around Olivia, his hands splayed across her breasts, her abdomen. His arousal pushed against her soft backside. Her head was thrown back against his shoulder, leaving her neck exposed to the sweet assault of his mouth. Her hands rested on top of his, urging him to touch, to explore.

“Remember, Olivia? Remember what it was like between us? Does Stuart make you feel like that? Does he make you beg for more, make you wet with wanting?”

Olivia went completely still in his arms.

“When you make love with him, do you think of me?”

She pushed herself out of his arms, her hair tousled, her face flushed. She looked like a woman who’d just been made love to, thoroughly and satisfyingly.

Olivia soon regained her equilibrium. She took a pillow from the sofa and threw it at him. Her face was flushed red with anger. “Get out!”
