Saturday Snippets

I thought I'd do something a little fun and share some excerpts from my novellas and novels, both released and soon to be released. 
Hope you enjoy!

  I made the drive from the grocery store out to Royal Hills with a dopey smile on my face. The woman I'd bumped into at the Food Lion had been an absolute delight. When I saw the smashed eggs dripping down her face and her green eyes blazing, the first word that popped into my head was "adorable." I needed to know more about her. Parking my car, I retrieved my bags, and headed for the door.
  "Afternoon, Mr. Childress," a voice called from my right.
  "Howdy, Mr. Harrison. Hedges are looking great," I called, shifting my body in the gardener's direction and slowing my walk. "Mom behave today?" I asked, and he tipped his hat.
  "Yup, she didn't try harvesting my asters today," he replied with a chuckle, and I shook my head. Of course she went after those plants; they reminded her of the flowers she loved so much. Dad had courted her with wild daisies, and they'd been her favorite ever since. Since he'd passed and I had relocated here to be close by, I was doing my best to make sure she had fresh flowers every week.
  I gave Mr. Harrison a wave and made my way inside to mom's room, where I found her watching the birdhouses that hung outside her window. A pair of hummingbirds was flitting back and forth, and I could see her blue eyes dance while she watched. Her hair was fixed in a neat bun; no longer the honey gold it had been in her youth, it was now a sophisticated silver.
  "Hey, Mom," I said, loud enough for her to hear me, but not so loud it would startle her. I waited a few moments, knowing she would soon turn and give me a welcoming smile.
  "Trent!" she cried with surprised excitement, and I squelched the feeling inside - the knowledge that this was going to be one of those days when she would again ask the questions I hated answering. It killed me each time I had to tell her Dad was gone. Her doctor hadn't yet diagnosed her with Alzheimer's, though the indications all pointed to it. Her brief moments of lucidity made me question if her continual lapses were in memory were intentional attempts to block her reality - if it was easier for her to exist in denial.

“Oh,” Erin murmured – both from how good his hands felt on her tired foot, but more at the look in his eyes when she lifted her head toward him. It was all too familiar. 

That was awkward. She wanted this – to be with Jayden as Erin – but it wasn’t allowed. He’d said so, and she had agreed. So why was he setting her body on fire right now with that look? “Jayden.” She whimpered his name, but it got lost in her gasp of surprise when his hands tugged on her foot, dragging her body over the couch toward him. 

His fingers left fiery trails along Erin’s bare legs while he caressed her. The sliding motion had pushed her top up exposing her taut midriff, and when he spread her legs to pull her onto his lap she didn’t resist. Erin leaned in to kiss him and his hands enveloped her with a tight grip. Jayden pulled her in, his large hands spanning her back while he pushed her top further up and then over her head. 

They both made a feral sound when his lips molded to her breast and he began to suckle. She was willing to do whatever it took. Even keep her cool when his next words brought her back to reality. She would never be more than a submissive to him.  

“Do you want to play tonight, my pet? Since tomorrow is Christmas, shall we start early?” 
What could she do? “Aye, Master. This girl would love to see how you put a scene together here in her home.” Catherine would play, but on Erin’s turf. 

Her squeals when he stood up and carried her down the hall to her room were swallowed by his mouth descending on hers just before he set her down. “I’m going to have a look around your apartment to see what I can use, if that’s okay?” 

She nodded. 

“I want you naked and kneeling when I return, Jewel.”

My body stiffened at the words, and he pulled away so he could spin me in his arms.

“Lorraine, what’s going on? You looked like you’d seen a ghost when we found those cigarettes. Is there something you’re not telling me?”

A deep sigh escaped me. “Funny you should say that, because, um, I think I have—seen a ghost that is.” 

The moment the words were out, I clenched my eyes shut not wanting to see the look I knew he had to be giving me. The one that would say Rick thought I’d lost my mind. When he didn’t say anything or make any move to pull away, I risked peeking out from one eye. He was giving me a look all right, but not the way I’d expected. This was the look that had resulted in three children. I opened the other eye. 

“Are you going to call me crazy?” My whisper was thick and heavy like the steam that surrounded us.

Rick shook his head in the negative, and when he leaned in, more than just his lips pressed into me. I soon melted into the embrace, giving in to his long overdue attentions when my body ignited with desire. Fumbling our way out of the shower and into the main room, our clean, wet bodies hit the cold sheets while we kissed in desperation.

A Divine Life
Book 2 of The Divine Trilogy

Cover reveal July 6, Release date of August 6, 2013.
*This excerpt is unedited*

One thing was certain in her mind: she knew that she needed this lifestyle. Deep down she would be restless and unfulfilled if she wasn’t handing control over to a Dom. Catherine had learned to desire the pain and humiliation because it allowed her the freedom of letting go. Giving up control released her mind to allow her body to be used by another.
Another certainty occurred to Catherine. She’d gotten careless in developing feelings for Jayden, her Master. If it was his desire to give her to another, then she must accept that. By giving in to the reality and accepting her fate, she was serving her Master, and in turn, herself. At least Master wasn’t abandoning her, leaving her to flounder for a way to start over . . . again.
When Catherine composed herself enough to look up, she found Paige looking over her shoulder. Turning her head to follow Paige’s gaze she was met with Sir Landon’s confused stare.
Sniffling and wiping her nose with the back of her hand, Catherine settled. “This girl is sorry, Sir. It’s been an emotional day and she forgot her place. She’s now remembered and is ready to move on.”
Sir Landon came forward and lifted her still trembling hand. “Of course, darlin’. Your mind and body have been through a lot today. Quite understandable.”
