Teasers – Driscollism

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

unexpectedencounter_800Today’s Teasers is a little different. I’m gonna use something that I call a ‘Driscollism’. This comes from the hero in my book Unexpected Encounter (Singleton, #4) which releases on this Friday, July 18. In the book my hero says some…lets just say his views on things are interesting. Here is one of the things he said.

Driscollism

When someone tells me I’m going to fail, it makes me even more determined to succeed then flip them off when I do. – said by Driscoll Jacobs from Unexpected Encounter by Taige Crenshaw

I love this Discosllism because one of the things I believe is when something is tough or hard I won’t let it defeat me. I dig in and work harder to get it done.

Between the Covers – Immortal Bloodlines

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Today’s Between the Covers is an excerpt from my book.

Here is a excerpt from Immortal Bloodlines (Phoenix Intelligence Agency, Book # 4). Enjoy.

immortalbloodlines_800“I’m through running from you. Now the ball’s in your court to decide what to do about that.” Storm stared at his lips. She turned and sauntered back to the doorway, passing the agents from Killian’s unit who had come into his office. They parted and let her by. Storm could feel Killian watching her and she looked over her shoulder. “Decide fast, because I’m a little impatient and don’t like to be kept waiting.”

She headed outside. Bypassing the agents who smiled at her, Storm whistled as she walked back to her unit. The agents of her unit applauded when she entered.

“When we think you can’t top yourself, you do,” someone called out. “We love your zany self, Storm.”

She bowed and winked at them. It was all in good-natured fun. The agents of the assassination unit liked to tease. Storm went into her office and waited as Allure and Harmony came in.

“What was that about?” Allure demanded.

“I finally realized why Killian bugs me so much.” Storm sat in her chair and put her feet on her desk.

“Why?” Harmony asked.

“Don’t be naïve, Harmony.” Allure smirked. “Aunty Storm finally found her libido. And it has the hots for Killian.”

“What?” Harmony frowned then stared at Storm. She opened her mouth then closed it before blurting out, “You don’t date.”

“I’ll be starting soon. That is, if Killian gets his butt in gear.” Storm smiled. “I drive him crazy already. Imagine when it is up close and personal. Preferably naked.”

Between the Covers – Power of Enticement

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Today’s Between the Covers is an excerpt from my book.

Here is a excerpt from Power of Enticement (Blackstone Haven, Book # 3). Enjoy.

powerofenticement2He stroked his finger down one high cheekbone to the corner of her full lips but stopped before touching them. He wanted to but he resisted, knowing he’d need his head about him when dealing with a woman who had changed his world in moments with her appearance. He moved his hand to the end of her ponytail, which rested over her shoulder and curled to just below her waist. He fingered the edges of her hair rubbing his hands over the hair tie he’d put on. Grayson looked down at what he was doing. She placed her hand over his, running her finger along the knuckle of his thumb.

“Getting to know, huh?” Grayson leaned closer. “Are you a cuddler?”

Savage lifted an eyebrow at her question. “That’s something you will find out…eventually.” He released her braid then gestured to her cup. “Now drink your tea while you tell me where you heard about shadow mates.”

Grayson picked up her cup, blew on the tea then took a sip before she answered. “I get around.”

“Grayson.”

“Ohhh…how you say my name gives me chills.” Grayson batted her eyelashes. “Say it again but make your voice deeper like so… Grayson.”

“You are going to be a handful.” Savage fought not to laugh. “Stop avoiding and tell me what you know about shadow mate.”

“I’m going to be much more than a handful.” Grayson took another sip of her tea then glanced at him. “Now for what you want to know. When I left here after Peyton fought with the death that stalks us”—she leaned her head to the side—“I assume you know about the family legend and so on?”

“Yes. Wesley and Ian filled us in on the basics,” he said. Wesley was mate to Peyton and Ian to Sinai, two of Grayson’s sisters. “You will fill me in on what I need to know later.” Savage paused then narrowed his eyes. “You think you’re going to be taken next by this demon?”

Between the Covers – Dark Callings

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Today’s Between the Covers is an excerpt from my book.

Here is a excerpt from Dark Callings (Phoenix Intelligence Agency, Book # 3). Enjoy.


“Only to you. We all trust you, Lennox.” Harmony’s tone was gentle.

“Then you all are fools,” he said coolly.

“Don’t get snappish at me.” Harmony’s reply was mild.

“I did no such thing.”

“You didn’t raise your voice, but I know the levels of that cool tone you use on people-”the one that clearly gives away your moods. That was a snap. Don’t do it again.” There was a clear warning in her voice.

Lennox frowned. That she knew him so well surprised and ticked him off. He didn’t appreciate Harmony being so insightful.

Between the Covers – Linc

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

Today’s Between the Covers is an excerpt from my book.

Here is a excerpt from Linc (Kemet Uncovered, Book # 3) a book I co-authored Aliyah Burke. Enjoy.

Her mouth moved, those full, kissable lips forming words. Words he wasn’t paying the least bit of attention to. He blinked and said, “If you have a moment, could I have a word, please?”

Was that nervousness in her gaze?

“Of course, Mr Dixon.”

His cock hardened even more. “Excellent. My office is over there.”

He led the way, knowing that if he didn’t he would be touching her. They were halted by another parent and a smile curved his lips as he watched Danny kiss his mom and leave with the other boy and his dad. He held the door to his office open and didn’t move as she brushed by him. Linc knew she felt the reaction between them, for she couldn’t hide her sharp intake of breath.

He closed his eyes and inhaled deeply. His nails dug into his palms, leaving behind crescent moons in the skin. After she’d passed he shut the door, the click echoing through the small room, highlighting the fact that they were alone.

He prowled around the back of the chair she perched upon and sat behind his desk, grateful his erection was now hidden from her view. She watched him with wary eyes, although he wondered if her attraction to him wasn’t all that she was worried about.

“What can I do for you, Mr Dixon?” she asked flicking a piece of imaginary lint from her jeans.

Oh, baby, if you only knew.

Ignoring the ever-increasing pressure in his pants, he laced his fingers and rested his hands on the desk.

“Your son, Daniel—”

“Danny,” she interrupted.

He arched a brow at that interjection. “Danny,” he amended. “I would like to offer him a new position on the team.”

She narrowed her eyes, exposing him to the protective mama bear within. “What?”

“I think he’d be even more explosive as a forward rather than a defenceman. A right wing, to be exact.”

She seemed to mull that over for a moment. Lifting her chin, she met his gaze head on. “Why didn’t you just change him over?”

“I don’t want to get between a mother and her son.” He watched her absorb his words. Her gaze moved around the room. “How long have you been on your own?”

Chaya snapped like an iron rod had been injected in place of her spine and her gaze glittered as she glared down her pert nose at him.

“That, Mr Dix—”

“Linc. My name is Linc.”

She pursed her lips. “Mr Dixon, my personal life has zero to do with my son’s position on this hockey team.”

“No, it doesn’t. And again, the name is Linc. I’m just curious.”

“Not pertinent,” she snapped her voice coated in permafrost.

Unintimidated, he rose and moved to stand before her. She lifted her head as she ran her gaze up over his already-hard form. He wanted to crow at the obvious desire glistening in her large eyes. She was as aroused as he was.

He lowered his face parallel to hers, dropped his sight to her full lips, shiny from her moist tongue, and back up again.

“How long, Chaya?” he intoned, allowing his power to leech into his tone, quelling the remaining objections in her mind. “How long since you’ve allowed a man to satisfy your needs?”
