Snippet Saturday


We’re back to dialogue. I picked a scene from Rocky Mountain Heat that while there’s a little action, the main point of the story is definitely carried in the dialogue. I could totally see this scene while I wrote it, BTW. For anyone’s who’s ever hung out in the back of barn and listened to people fooling around. (I can’t be the ONLY person!)

————————-

Jaxi and Travis were necking in the tack room and from the sounds of it, things were getting hot and heavy. He didn’t deliberately step closer to eavesdrop.

Hell, yes, he did. He didn’t trust Travis as far as he could throw him.

The kissing and the rustling noises built his curiosity to a peak before Jaxi muttered ‘uh-uh, cool it’ and someone knocked something over.

“Oh, damn, Jaxi, you’re killing me here. I need you. I really need you, baby.”

Jaxi snorted. “I’m not stupid, Travis. You won’t die if we don’t have sex. Get over it already. I’m not willing–”

“You don’t love me.”

“Damn right, I don’t. You don’t love me either. We’re friends, that’s all.”

You tell him, girl. Blake snuck to the far end of the hall where he could still hear but remained hidden in case either of them decided to bust out of the room without warning.

“You like it when I touch you, you know I get your motor running. It’s another thing I can do to make you feel real good. Make us both feel real good. Come on, sweetheart, it’ll be special.”

“In a barn? Travis Coleman, you may be considered the hottest thing around by the rest of the girls in town but you need a little work on your romancing.”

The sound of creaking floorboards warned Blake to fade back into the corner more.

“Don’t leave me hurting here, sweetheart. Come on back and help me a little. You know I like it when you touch me.”

The door squeaked as she opened it. “Travis, I was enjoying myself, but you pushing it every time we fool around kills the mood. I’ve told you I’m not having sex. Not with you or anyone until I’m older, no matter what kinky games you like to play. It’s something special and I want to save it.”

“Yeah, I remember.”

“Then why do you keep trying to convince me to go farther than I want?”

“Because I… Oh hell, Jaxi, are you going to help me here or what?”

The door slammed and Jaxi’s strong voice rang out. “Talk to the hand, Travis, talk to the hand.”

Seductive Musings:
I just love the cover of Rocky Mountain Heat from Vivian Arend’s Six Pack Ranch series. While some covers are just nice to look at like this one is, I think it also conveys what the book is about too. For me that is the ultimate combination…enticing you to buy while conveying an accurate representation of the story. This one is brilliant at doing all of that.

The Romance Studio
This story started out with a strong opening that set the stage for the whole book. I found myself totally captivated until the very end…

I’m a happy girl!

The buzz about Rocky Mountain Heat

I’m feeling a little tipsy with the rush of positive feedback I’ve been getting about Rocky Mountain Heat. I’m so glad that readers have been enjoying it. Not just the heat, although that’s been mentioned a few time :wink: but they’ve been getting the whole setting and feel of the story, and that makes me very proud.

Chris at Night Owl Romance gave it a 4.5 and a Reviewer Top pick

Neighbors for what seems forever, Blake and Jaxi have a history. But when Jaxi starts to develop into a young woman, Blake who is ten years older than her, suddenly becomes scarce. Hurt and confused by his actions, Jaxi still hangs around the Coleman ranch, and even dates one of his brothers. But he’s the man she loves and hopes to marry someday. How will she ever get him to notice her?

I absolutely inhaled this story. Full of angst, anxiety and confusion Jaxi and Blake’s dance around each other made for an absorbing read.

Mistress Bella’s Reviews

Rocky Mountain Heat is short, sweet and an awesome set up for what I hope is an erotic and fun series. Six, sexy studs in all, the Coleman clan made me laugh and made me want to be part of their family. Vivian Arend shows a real knowledge of men in her depiction of the brothers. They are naughty, authentic and utterly irresistible. I give Rocky Mountain Heat four smacks with the option for more once the series is completed. It’s hot and sweet right now, but I could see the rest of the brothers jacking that up to smoking!

And thanks to the ladies at the James Gang who have made me blush with their praise. I’m very honored readers are enjoying the book.

Because that’s why I’m writing…

Snippet Saturday-Fight Scene


Today’s snippet is an emotional fight…

From Rocky Mountain Heat, newly released from Liquid Silver books.
——-

She gasped as pain rippled through her belly. His words lashed her, stinging to the core. The seemingly caring tone he delivered them in made it worse. She wanted to smack him hard enough to knock off his blinders and turn this disaster of a conversation around.

Before he broke her heart.

“Oh, so now I’m old enough to play around, just not with you. Hmm, let’s see, who do I know that’s around my age and interested in me. Gee, two names jump to mind.”

“Jaxi…” The emotionless face changed in an instant to disapproval and anger.

“What, you don’t think Jesse and Joel are interested in me anymore? I was pretty sure Jesse said he was, just the other day.

He stepped toward her, forcing her to shuffle backward to stay out from underfoot. “I’ve warned them you’re off limits. The only way I want to see you around them is if you pick one and the other swears to bow out. I won’t have you messing around with them both.”

Jaxi popped her eyes open wide and forced herself to display a delighted expression. “So it’s true, they do get involved with the same girl at the same time. Damn, sounds like a bit of an adventure. Maybe that’s what I need since I can’t have what I want.”

“You stay away from my brothers,” he warned, his voice harsh and low.

She let out a burst of laughter, feeling hard and tight inside. “You’re not the boss of me. Maybe I can’t convince the one Coleman I want to be with me but I bet you I can sure as hell have a little fun with a couple others.”

He loomed over her, dark and dangerous and she wanted to have him hold her instead of dealing with this whole stupid mess. “Let’s not throw it away, Jaxi, all those years of friendship,” he said.

Her throat was tightening up, all her anger melting away as she fought back tears. There was no way she was going to cry in front of him, not now. She had to figure out a solution to stop the train wreck from continuing. “I agree we’ve had something special in the past. But don’t you see, all those years of friendship were leading to something bigger and better and that’s what you’re choosing to throw away. You, Blake, you’re the one throwing it away. I know what I want.”

She stood on tiptoes and brushed a kiss on his burning hot cheek before whispering, “Let me know when your ready to admit what you want. I’m getting tired of waiting for the right answer.”

Jaxi had never been keen on dramatic exits but time was of the essence to avoid bursting into tears. She slipped past his solid bulk and dashed out the fire exit.

Tidbit Tuesday

I’m still here. Just taking it a lot slower after the release of Rocky Mountain Heat and the end of the contest. Tomorrow, a regular post. Today, have a little tidbit. :)

————-

Jesse and Joel took their turns, managing to sink eight balls in a row into the appropriate pockets before missing. Blake and Leo took over and they put away two more before Jesse cleared his throat to announce the next challenge.

“Triple Play.”

“Hell, Jesse, you’re kidding,” Leo complained. “Do I need to worry about why you want to slip between me and Blake while we shoot?”

Jesse shook his head. “Not me. I figured we could talk Jaxi into helping us.” He turned and held a hand to the girl. “What do you think, sweetheart? Run a little interference for us?”

Blake’s heartbeat increased as Jaxi took the hand offered her and smiled sweetly at Jesse. The boy had the guts to clasp her by the waist and slowly lower her to the ground, letting their bodies rub together tightly.

Jaxi propelled herself back from Jesse’s arms with a wink. “I’m in, but I’m supposed to start with Blake’s team. Troublemaker.” She patted his cheek and turned toward Blake, her eyes flashing. “Unless you’d rather give up right now and admit defeat. I never took you for a quitter, but I guess you can’t tell when things will get too hot for a person to handle.”

Blake shoved down his anger. She wanted to play with fire, did she? He was hot enough to burn through her teasing and take her on the table, right in front of the whole world, if she didn’t back off. Damn the consequences.

Blake examined the table for a sinkable shot. “Twelve in the side pocket, Leo.” His partner nodded and eyeballed the line before placing his hand on the table for Blake to rest the cue on. Leo twisted his body far to the side, leaving plenty of room for Blake to make the shot using one hand.

Except Triple Play meant he had to have Jaxi between him and Leo. Touching them both at the same time. Blake threw Jesse an evil look and a roar of laughter shot back at him.

“I did shower recently,” Jaxi said, moving in close.

Bloody hell. Don’t talk about showers right now.

Blake wrapped an arm around Jaxi and tugged her into his side. She slid her arms over his torso to his back and clung to him as he leaned over the table, positioned the cue on Leo’s outstretched hand and took the shot.

Jaxi’s sweet scent rose around them, her breath hot on his neck as he stood slowly. Tension built in his gut, not only from the feel of her against his body. Nine more balls to sink before they went to the next challenge and he would go insane if he had to watch his little brothers spoon Jaxi between the two of them.

Leo picked a shot and Blake set up the cradle. Instead of hugging onto Leo, Jaxi slid close to Blake again, resting in tight against his chest, her breasts compressed against him, swelling to the top of the scooped neck of her dress. Blake bit back a groan.

“You got troubles, Blake?” Jaxi whispered in his ear. She licked him, her hot little tongue slipping into his ear, making his whole body jerk in reaction.
