Can the newest professor at Kensington State escape his previous life as a killer? Leaving the Army didn't mean the war left him so Capt. Danny Maine, now teaching English, must find a way to lead a normal life. Finding love and rekindling an old friendship are not enough to defeat old demons. Danny Maine fights to free himself from war memories and dangerous men, hoping that a new love and a new Glock will bring him peace. Now and Forever 2, the Book of Danny is a heartfelt story of love, loss and ultimate triumph that will touch your heart.


What do a Marine who received a “Dear John” letter and a journalist who dumped her cheating fiancĂ© have in common? Nothing, outside of being heartbroken over lost love. But when they accidentally end up next to each other jetting to a Caribbean paradise, they do share one thing: mutual attraction. Friendship between Tara Mason and Sergeant Mick Peterson grows quickly through a few dates on St. Thomas. An argument coupled with a blunder strand them on a small deserted Caribbean island.

In the midst of nothing but sand and water, possible starvation leading to death, old wounds heal. While working together to survive, Mick and Tara fall in love. Love found in their own private Eden is soon challenged in life-threatening ways when they return to the mainland. Long separations, danger and loneliness test their devotion. Is the love they’ve found strong enough to withstand what life throws at them?

 A bit about the book
Can a craving for mint chip ice cream and a passion for the theater spark romance? Hunky Clint is younger than Nina. He’s a high school English teacher and a budding playwright. Nina, an actress, is a beautiful, lonely, wealthy widow. What can they possibly have in common? Mint chip ice cream brings them together but there is more to life than ice cream and steamy romance. Can their love of the theater keep them together or will it ultimately drive them apart?

Here's a sneak peek
        The sultry August air felt heavy around Nina Wells, and it quickly melted the ice cream in her sundae. Gazing up at the clear night sky to look for the Big Dipper, Nina dribbled fudge sauce on her white tee shirt. She reached for a napkin, realized she’d forgotten to take one, and doubled back to the ice cream stand before the stain set.
        She rushed up to the tiny counter with the napkin holder right as a tall, good-looking man holding a double mint chip cone turned. They collided. His ice cream fell onto her chest, causing her to gasp at the shock of cold against her skin. She looked up into his light brown eyes as she reached for the melting ball of ice cream. He grunted and slipped one arm around her to keep her from losing her footing. She stood wobbling, mesmerized by him; he was almost a whole foot taller than she with light brown hair and shoulders a mile wide. Nina shifted the ice cream ball from hand to hand, not knowing what to do with it.
“I don’t think you can put that back on the cone. Maybe the garbage?” He suggested with a grin.

TUESDAY TALES - WORD PROMPT - FINGER

Here's a snippet from my work-in-progress, The Dating List. 


                                               *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *  


Carrie arched into him, pressing her hips into his, her fingers combing through his hair. As his lips found her peak, the slamming of the front door, indicated Colin was home. Grey swore under his breath.
“Little brothers…crap. Can’t believe he’s still showing up at the wrong time.”
He sat up. Carrie arched an eyebrow.
“Oh? And what inconvenient times did he show up before?”
Grey felt his cheeks get warm.
“You know…”
“Not really. Tell me.”
“Stop kidding, Carrie,” a smile played with his lips.
“Like when you were making out with a girl, trying to get her panties off, you mad seducer,” Carrie’s fingers tickled his sides, causing Grey to bend and twitch. A roar of laughter escaped his mouth as the two lovers wrestled with each other. Grey grabbed her hands and clasped them together in his one big one. He rolled her over subduing her kicking legs by trapping them between his as his mouth blew raspberries on her neck. She screamed, convulsing in laughter as she struggled to free herself from his vice-like grip. He lifted his mouth from her neck and lowered it possessively on her lips. The demanding kiss grew deeper, more passionate. She stopped squirming, relaxing against his hard body, molding hers to his. 
The Dating List, coming in October.
