Ingenue is Live!

Ingenue snippet3Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’ll treat yourself to my latest release… Ingenue: a feminist BDSM adventure, available in digital and paperback formats from Amazon.

Here’s a sexy snippet to whet your appetite…

“Paige,” a strained voice quietly called. “Paige!”

I went to the window and peered down. There, in the moon-silvered landscape of Aunt Lil’s side yard, stood a familiar silhouette. Reed!

“There you are.” He sounded pleased.

My heart picked up its pace, and I grinned. Never, not even in my most fevered adolescent dreams, had I imagined such a romantic Romeo and Juliet moment. A suitor beneath the moonlight! Summoning me to my window!

“What are you doing here?” I called back. A few famous pentameter lines might have run through my head. I might have giggled aloud.

“What do you think?”

My body awoke to the lovely, wicked potential suffusing the night. “Is this a booty call?” I fervently hoped it was.

“Let me in, and you’ll find out.”

I crept out of my room and tiptoed down the stairs, careful to avoid the creakiest treads even though Aunt Lil had been asleep for hours. My eyes had adjusted to the darkness now, and I navigated easily through the living room. I found Reed at the front door, his arms braced against the jambs, muscles flexed. He grinned sinfully at me, and my body went liquid.

“Are you drunk?” I whispered. Not that I could smell any hint of alcohol, but this was a quintessential drunken scenario, wasn’t it? Showing up at someone’s house in the middle of the night, tossing stones at her window…

“Stone cold sober and horny as hell.” He pulled me into his arms, the heat of his body searing my skin, and gave me a kiss that made my toes curl into the doormat. “I can’t stop thinking about you.”

“Me, either,” I confessed, holding tight and breathing him in. I might’ve been able to distract myself during the day with work, but at night, in my dreams, it was all Reed.

Another kiss lit me up like a flare. “Take me to your bedroom.”

 

Night Hush Now Available

I’m so pleased to spotlight my good friend Leslie Jones’ debut novel, Night Hush, now available from HarperCollins. Leslie’s years spent in the military, both in active service and as a spouse, greatly inform her characters and plots. In this gripping and action-packed debut, an Army Intelligence officer and a Delta Force soldier must race against the clock to stop a catastrophic terrorist attack. Please go check this one out!

Night Hush Official CoverWhen Army Intelligence Officer Heather Langstrom’s military convoy is ambushed and she’s taken prisoner, she knows she’ll need all her strength and courage to survive, escape her captors, and report the whispers of unrest brewing in the Middle East.

Delta Force Captain Jace Reed isn’t one to throw caution to the wind, but when his team stumbles upon beaten and weak Heather fleeing the terrorist training camp they’ve been dispatched to destroy, he’ll risk everything to get her to safety.

Once back on base, they learn her convoy’s ambush was no accident…she’d been targeted. As the evidence of an impending attack mounts, Jace and Heather uncover a deadly terrorist plot that could kill hundreds of civilians.

But Jace’s protective instincts and Heather’s fierce independence put them at constant odds. And as they close in on the extremists, they must learn to trust one another in order to save innocent lives…even if it means sacrificing their own.
