Tuesday Tidbit

Well, it’s actually Wednesday now, but who’s counting? :)

A tidbit from Rocky Mountain Heat, coming August 31st. And heads up –I’ll be starting a contest on the 21st- so be sure to check back then!

Blake rose and made his way downstairs. He stopped and looked at the door of the den, closed tight. Behind those doors Jaxi would be curled up, her blonde hair draped over the pillow, her body nestled in the thick comforter covering the sofa bed. She probably wore one of those baby doll nighties, her long legs exposed, her soft shoulders bare under thin straps of some kind of soft shiny material. Sleeping in the room next to her the first night had been difficult but after a week of spending time with her, his desire for her had grown even stronger.

Blake bit back a growl and headed to his room. His ma needed the help but these few weeks were turning out to be sheer hell on his body. Even now he was harder than a railway spike, the thought of Jaxi close by teasing his senses. He swore the scent of her filtered into his room.

He stripped off his jeans and shirt and padded toward the bathroom door. Oh hell, he’d forgotten he couldn’t go in. As the oldest son he’d taken advantage of picking the room with an attached bathroom. It had a connecting door to the den as well and Jaxi had all her things in there. He stood, his hand on the doorknob. He wanted to enter, hoped by some chance she’d have left the other door open and he could torment himself with a glimpse of paradise.

Blake dragged a breath of air into his lungs in an attempt to cool his burning body. It wasn’t right, he couldn’t think about Jaxi that way. She was a guest in their home and he was as good as a brother to her. He was acting like a hound dog and he should be ashamed of himself.

He grabbed his travel kit from under the bed and instead stepped down the hall toward the large shower room in the annex. He, Matt and Daniel had decided to use the larger bathroom and let Jaxi have the privacy of the other for herself.

The sound of running water met his ears and Blake stepped into the dimly lit room, wondering why his brothers had turned on only half the lights. Splashing noises echoed. Leaving his kit on the sink counter he rounded the corner to the showers.

And froze.

The three showerheads in the open room were separated by nothing but space. Steam filtered the dim lighting into a moonshine glow.

All he saw was wet, naked skin. Jaxi’s skin. Every inch of her bare to his gaze as the water poured from the middle shower, streaming in waves over her body. She faced away from him, head thrown back as she shifted her body to allow the water to slip over her face and down her chest. Blake, his body hot and needy, watched in a daze as the shampoo rinsed from her hair and undulated down her back, tiny bubbles racing over the curve of her waist. His gaze followed the bubbles along the soft swell of her hips and the full curves of her ass. Her skin was pale pink from the heat of the water, faint tan lines showing on her thighs and arms.

His mouth went completely dry.

Life is a blur

I’m getting ready for so many things right now, it seems there aren’t enough hours in the day!

I homeschool my children, and right now is the time I plan out the coming year for them. Since my oldest is Grade 12 (GULP!) that requires a little more planning than usual.

Then I’ve got Legacy almost ready to submit, hopefully by the end of the day. My new work in progress, Shaman, took a great turn in plot yesterday so I have to settle some bunny trails. And I re-read part of an older WIP, Fae Visions and enjoyed it so much now I want to go finish that!

Plus it’s fruit season here at home, I’m starting a workout routine, I’m playing with the puppy….

Busy. :)

But the main thing I’m working on is a Countdown to the Cowboys Contest. With Rocky Mountain Heat coming out August 31, I’m trying to put together a little event. I hope to make an announcement in the next few days.

Otherwise, hope you’re having a great summer, with lots of great reading and relaxing.

Woohoo!! Release Date and Tidbit Tuesday

I’m pleased to announce that Rocky Mountain Heat will be available:

August 31st!

Liquid Silver Books posts the releases in the evening, so my cowboys will be available after work for some hot bedtime reading :) I think that calls for a tidbit of Jaxi and Blake!

———-

Jaxi glanced over her shoulder at him as she leaned back on the hammer, loosening an exceptionally tough staple. “You done work for the day or what, Blake Coleman? Or have you never seen a fence fixed before so you want to learn some tips from me?” She winked at him.

Minx. “Well, I haven’t seen you fix a fence in a long time, Slick. Maybe you do it differently nowadays.”

The hammer jerked and slipped from her grasp, her body falling back to land hard on her ass in the middle of the hen-scratched dirt. Blake stepped forward quickly to help her and she chuckled, brushing the dirt from her jeans as she smiled at him. “Maybe I do.”

He checked to make sure she wasn’t hurt and seeing nothing but amusement in her eyes he joined in the game. Nodding seriously at her, he teased, “I’m sure the last time I fixed a fence I didn’t end up on my backside, but I suppose this method is more modern and sophisticated.” He tugged the hammer she’d retrieved from her fingers and scooted around to remove the final staples, handing them back one at a time for her to hang onto.

It was like going back in time. Back to the days when Jaxi followed him around the farm all summer long, talking her head off about everything and anything. They worked together, putting the new boards into place and pounding in a stake to support the chicken wire tight to the ground. All the while Jaxi shared stories about taking care of the doctor’s kids and her work at a local greenhouse the past spring. She even rambled about a book she’d just read that taught how to build a fishpond.

“That’s interesting, Jaxi, but we don’t need to stock a pond around here. It’s a short ride to the river and part of the fun of fishing is heading into nature to sit for a while.” Blake tugged on her ponytail gently like he did when she was a kid. It had been good to work with her for a few minutes doing an everyday task. Something about it eased the tension within him and for the first time in a long time, he simply enjoyed her company as he had for many years before his sexual longings came between them.

Jaxi snorted at him. “You don’t need to stock a pond but the Mitchells are considering it. I’m going to head there next Monday for a bit and see if I can help them get things ready. You want to come along?”

Blake nodded slowly. “I think I should be able to go. Ask me later and we’ll see what’s on the schedule.”

Her grin lit the whole area and Blake’s heart gave a leap. All his calmness left abruptly. He squatted to gather the tools together and their hands bumped as Jaxi grabbed for the hammer and clasped his wrist instead. Heads close, bodies near enough the scent from her skin rose to his nostrils and his body tightened with need. This was no little tagalong girl at his side, no matter how much he wanted her to be. No matter how much safer it would be.

Jaxi stared at him and her pink tongue snuck over her bottom lip to moisten it. Blake bit back the urge to lay his mouth on hers and lick over the wetness, tasting her skin and her sweet flavor. He needed to retreat, needed to stand and flee from temptation and the heavenly smell of her warm breath on his skin before he did something they would both regret. But heaven help him if he could budge.

She released her fingers slowly, drawing back over his skin with a butterfly softness that stroked up his arm and back down directly to his cock. Jaxi stood quickly, her hip bumping him hard and Blake fell backward in the dirt. He stared into her laughing eyes.

“Why, Blake. You do know how to fix fences the modern way after all.”

Looking forward to introducing you to the whole Coleman family, and especially Blake and Jaxi, August 31st!

Thank you for cover artists!!

Valerie Tibbs is the graphic artist member of International Heat, and she has racked up an impression 80+ covers for novels over the past year. During a chat the other day and she and I accidentally got called by each other’s names.

I don’t think I should be a cover artist. I’ll stick to writing, please and thank you.

Here’s why. When I finished my cowboy story, Rocky Mountain Heat, I decided to make a cover for it, for when my critique Partners and beta readers had the book. I had a picture I liked for the cowboy. How hard could it be?

Hard.

Here’s MY version of the cover.


And here’s the official cover that April Martinez at Liquid Silver Books made for me.

Can you see why I’m sticking with writing? LOL!!!

Now that I’ve mentioned covers, I need to tell you that the cover for Tidal Wave is up against two other covers in a contest over at Embrace the Shadows. After I visited there last week Barb choose my cover as her entry into their weekly cover challenge. You can go vote for Tidal Wave (if you think it’s worth it) at their site.

And I’m off to write some more. Nearing the end of Legacy!!
