Saturday Snippet

Blog Header option2

Homage to another artist— wow, talk about a theme that’s wide open to interpretation. For this Saturday’s Snippet, all of the authors listed at the end of the post will be sharing their take on that theme.

Here’s mine. I don’t listen to music while I write, at least not music with words. I find that when I do, I end up with entire lines of lyrics in the manuscript, and I don’t remember putting them there. I’m not a very good typist, and so I really don’t know how it happens…but I digress.

I don’t have stories or characters that go to big name concerts, or or anything like that. But I do seem to find one song I hear that makes me think of a story I’m working on. I’ll hear the song on the radio and get ideas sprouting for the next time I’m at the computer. Here are the two songs that I consider theme songs for my merfolk books.

Tidal Wave: Available from Samhain Publishing.

Alexia is thrown into the world of the merfolk, and in a flash, her whole life changes.

Alexia pulled back slightly, her lips still brushing his skin. “I’ve seen this cave before. You’ve been in my dreams but we’ve never—”

“We’re together, as we should be. You don’t have to figure out every detail. You know it’s right, let go and enjoy.”


Joshua lowered her to the mat, his long body stretched beside her. “You are the Keeper. You hold the medallion and the heart of the people. But you are still Alexia. You still choose for yourself what you want, what you desire.”

He ran a finger down her torso, slipping the nightgown open as his gaze feasted on her body. Alexia shivered. His words echoed her grandmother’s, that it was Alexia’s choice and decision. Whatever that meant.

“What do you choose, my lady? Do you want me to leave and you can enjoy a retreat here in the cavern by yourself?” He rolled over her, his body firm, his erection pressing into her belly. Joshua lowered his head and kissed her collarbone, his tongue lapping along the delicate line and back up her neck. He whispered into her mouth. “Or do you want me to stay and keep you company? We could visit. Build a sandcastle. Play a game.”

His mouth descended again and Alexia wrapped her arms around him, pulling his torso into contact with hers. She swept her tongue into his mouth, needing to taste his unique flavor, needing him to touch her intimately. They kissed, teased, wrapped around each other until he rolled away, breathing hard.

His eyes glinted like emeralds and Alexia raised a hand to his cheek. Should she say what she really wanted? “This is a dream I’ve longed for, Joshua. I want you to stay and make love to me.”

The answering flash in his eyes delighted her, as did the smile that was quickly hidden as he dropped his mouth to her skin, his tongue tracing designs as he cradled her body closer to his, fingers smoothing her shoulders.

Whirlpool: Coming August 2010

Jamie has come to catalog a marine artifact collection, but he’s discovering there’s more to Jaffrey’s Cove than meets the eye.

Venido conmigo.”

The woman held out a hand as she commanded him to come with her. He took a few more steps and placed his hand in hers, her gaze enveloping him like a net.

His legs moved willingly as she led him back down the beach to where the green grass met the white expanse of sand. She tugged him down to the soft surface with her and he went eagerly. When she wrapped her arms around him, he let his hands explore and touch, caressing her curves, stroking the valleys. She spoke softly to him in Spanish, praising him as he kissed his way down her body, crying out as he licked and suckled her breasts. A shimmer of blue rose from her skin and he watched in amazement as the light of fireflies hung suspended in the air around them. Part of him wanted to analyze what he saw, but most of him needed too much to be able to compute anything but how heavy his balls felt. How hard his cock had grown as he touched his mysterious woman. The air grew warmer and Jamie gave himself over to the urgent desires floating through him as he made love to the vision.
