Hi! I’m so excited to be celebrating the release of SQUARED AWAY, which is book 5 in my Out of Uniform series. Today I’m sharing an excerpt that is VERY NSFW and one of my favorite moments of the book!
MISSION OF PLEASURE (DAUGHTERS OF AFRICA #1)
How did you start writing erotica?
I love a good romance, but the language in romance novels are unrealistic to me. I tried a sweet romance and it didn’t work. It’s erotica all the way for me.
What’s your favourite published work of yours and why?
My first paranormal series. Technically, it could be better, but it ended exactly the way I envisioned.
The Lure of Port Stephen Exclusive Excerpt
Sunday morning, hearing Robbie’s voice as he and his father packed up to go fishing, Raj decided to pull on his grey sweatpants. He pushed open his trailer door, letting it bang, and then stepped outside, coffee in hand. He stretched his arms out, drawing in a deep breath, before walking over to light the Coleman stove for a quick breakfast.
His gear was already on the boat, ready to go if the lake was calm, so he had plenty of time to do another kind of fishing. He picked up his sunglasses from the picnic table and slid them over his face so he could look over at his neighbours without being too obvious. Wayne was cheerfully talking, but Robbie’s attention was fixed on Raj’s crotch. Yes. He might be bi, but he definitely liked dick.
Sheltered and cosseted, Sonnet Mendoza abided by her papi’s wishes her whole life: no boys, studies first and always. Now an ER nurse in a busy Chicago hospital, medical school is so close Sonnet can taste it—just like her father always wanted. Just like she can she can taste all the things she wants, like Griffith Parker, the man of her dreams and her new housemate.
Working “graves” in a large hospital as a security guard while attending the police academy during the day doesn’t leave ex-Marine Griffith Parker any personal time, but after meeting the beautiful Sonnet Mendoza business as usual is anything but. Sassy, smart…and interested in him, too? Except, she’s made an art of keeping her distance, and she’s been clear that her plans don’t include him. But the heart wants what the heart wants. His wants Sonnet. He’ll put it on the line to win her.
Every time I think of you, that is how I see you, how I see us, frozen for all time on that canvas, immune to the fading of memory. I spend immeasurable moments imagining myself in that scene, until I feel I am entering the space of the photograph and am no longer the man who observes but the man lying beside the woman. Then the quiet symmetry of the picture is broken and I hear voices very close to my ear.
“Tell me a story,” I say to you.
“Tell me a story you have never told anyone before. Make it up for me.”
-Isabel Allende, The Stories of Eva Luna 1989
