Jolene

My life changed that tragic day.
My parents died in a car crash, so I was forced to go and live with my brother for a while.
My brother, Max, who’s the lead singer of Full Moon.
Everyone treats me like I’m fragile. Like I will break any second.
But all I want is to be free again. To be myself again.

John

I’m the guitarist of Full Moon. I have it all.
A different woman in my bed every night.
Party like there’s no tomorrow.
My life is fun.
Until the little sister of our lead singer comes to stay with the band.
Turns out she’s not so little anymore.
She’s a spitfire of a woman who turns my life upside down.
But am I willing to break all the rules to be with her?

DESIRE is a complete stand-alone and can be read without reading any of the other books in the Full Moon series, but if you prefer to read in order, start with TRUST and FATE as the characters do interconnect.

EXCERPT

Nic’s sleep was fraught with dreams. Everything that Alice had said stirred up old memories. All he could think about was the girl he had once loved with his whole heart. Who was he kidding, she was the woman he still loved. He hit his pillow and rolled over, willing himself to go back to sleep.

“Shhhh, it’s going to be okay, Baby.” Nic stroked his hand down her delicate back. This was the furthest they had ever taken things.
She looked up at him, her eyes sheened with tears. “I don’t want to wait anymore,” she whispered. Her trembling hand reached up to cup his cheek. “I’m not scared Nic. I love you more than anything or anyone on this earth.”
Nic’s heart pumped up at least three sizes.
The lush feel of her naked breasts against his chest felt sublime. Ever so slowly she undulated against him, and he felt her turgid nipples scrape against his skin. He groaned.
“Are you all right?” she whispered. He looked at her to see if she was teasing, and found that she was sincerely worried about him.
He gave her the best smile that he was able. “Move again a couple of times, and let’s find out.”
Dawning comprehension lit up her face and she grinned as she shimmied against him once again. Nic had a strong sense of fairness, so he took one lush breast in his hand and thumbed her nipple, glorying in her moan of pleasure.
“Are you all right?” he asked with a devilish grin.
“Do it a few more times, and I’ll let you know.” Her voice was a siren’s song.
He did, again and again, his thumb swirled around her tightening bud, until he couldn’t stand it a minute longer and he swooped down and took the tip into his mouth and sucked.
She covered her mouth with the back of her wrist. There was no need. They were in his bed and no one was home. “I want to hear you.”
Her chestnut hair drifted across his pillow as she shook her head. He went back and sucked harder. This time she let out a soft shriek. He smiled against her soft flesh. Camilla was everything to him.
“More, Nic. More.” She moved so that her denim covered legs rested on either side of his hips, nestling his erection against her core. If it hadn’t been for their jeans, they’d be making love. She was driving him crazy.
He’d known Cami Ross for almost two years, but it had seemed like a lifetime. Everything about her enticed him, enthralled him, but there wasn’t a chance in hell he was going to take this any further tonight or any other night until he put an engagement ring on her finger. He wanted their future settled.
“You know the rules, our pants stay on,” he whispered with a grimace.
“I don’t like those rules anymore. They’re stupid rules. I turned eighteen last month. We’re graduating in three weeks. Those rules don’t apply anymore.”
Pushing a strand of hair behind her ear, he looked deep into her sky blue eyes. “Those rules do matter. It’s a matter of honor. My honor matters to me. Your honor matters to me.”
She bit her bottom lip. Cami did that when she was worried or thinking about something. If her fingers weren’t tangled in his hair, she’d be twirling her own.
“I would never do anything that would have you do something that would break your code of honor,” she said at last. “But what are we waiting for? Graduation?”
“You’ll see, be patient.” But even with their jeans on, he knew what he could do, Cami was so sensual and close to coming, that he could help her fly over the edge, it wouldn’t take much. He kissed away the frown on her brow, and she relaxed. His lips feathered down along her jaw, and her lips sought his. How could he resist the taste of her plump sweet lips? He lingered for an open-mouthed kiss that communicated so much. It was clear, that their hearts belonged to one another.
One hand cupped her cheek, while the other slid along the outside of her leg, coaxing it to wrap around his waist. He groaned into her mouth as he felt her heat through the layers of denim. He prayed that the steel of his zipper would hold, otherwise he would burst through his jeans. He gripped her butt, the one that drove him insane when she walked in front of him. Once again Nic took the tip of her breast in his mouth, but this time he gently raked it with her teeth, and she pushed up against him.
“Holy hell.”
He grinned. She rarely swore, so he knew he was getting to her. Wait until she felt what was coming next.
Nic started a slow slide against her core, up and down, it exactly matching the licks that he was now bestowing on her nipple. Sweat broke out on his forehead, as he worked to maintain control.
“What are y-y-you doing?” she stuttered.
He didn’t answer, he just continued. Up and down.
Stroke.
Lick.
Stroke.
Until she was moaning. Nic took a moment away from her breast so he could look into her eyes. Her irises had turned a dark navy, her gaze hazy with passion.
“Don’t stop.”
“I’m not.”
Her hands shot up and gripped his hair, pulling his head back down toward her breast, mashing it close for a harder touch then before. Was their any man on earth who could have resisted? He took the rose tipped nub into his mouth and sucked, twirling his tongue around her nipple. Her taste was exquisite.
Cami’s grip changed, now she was petting his head, running her fingers through his hair, her nails were driving him insane. The more she did it, the more his lower body lost its rhythm, and he found himself pushing against her uncontrollably.
Now she had both legs clutched around him, as she worked in tandem with each movement.
I’m going to lose it. I haven’t lost control since I was thirteen!
Her sighs and moans intermingled with her pleas.
“Nic…please,” she begged in a husky tone that didn’t sound like her at all. She clutched him harder, and he fell under her spell, all he could think about was giving her pleasure. Anything that would physically convey what mere words couldn’t. Afterall, how could he tell her that his heart had started beating when he had met her? That she was the other half of his soul and in her eyes he saw his future, the man he wanted to be. For her.
He pressed harder and bit gently at her nipple as his other hand tugged at her other turgid tip, and then she cried out his name as she shattered beneath him. Peace overwhelmed him. It was as if her pleasure boomeranged back to him, in an all-encompassing circle. He moved up and cradled her in his arms. Kissing her tears away.
“I’ve got you.”
“Always?” Her voice was faint.
“Always,” he promised.

EXCERPT

“I thought we were going home.”
“No,” I say gently. “Remember we talked about this? Home is going to need work. Construction work. It will take a long time. In the meantime, we’re going to stay at the inn.”
Her face turns red. I’ve seen this color before. Exactly one time before.
We were at the wake for her parents. She had made it through the funeral with grave obedience. Stand here. Walk there. Say goodbye. All the times when I would have expected her to rage, she held her composure. It was only at the end, when families gathered at the Coach House, when they offered empty words of consolation and casseroles, that she lost it.
“Get out,” she had screamed, her face red and splotchy, tears leaking down her cheeks. No one could console her. No one could reprimand her. In the end they left, one by one, darting glances of worry between me and her. In the hollow house, once everyone had gone, she beat her fists against me and sobbed into my chest for hours. Until she fell asleep in my arms.
She looks the same way now. Mutinous. Angry.
Consumed by grief.
“I want Kitten.”
“She’s at the vet, remember? We’ll pick her up soon.”
“I want mac and cheese. And I want to go home.”
Despite my general ineptitude as a guardian, I’ve tried. I’ve read books and listened to podcasts. Don’t raise your voice, they say. Lower your voice, and the child will mimic you. “We can’t go home,” I say, my words quiet. “There’s yellow tape everywhere. It’s a crime scene.”
This, despite the books and the podcasts, is the wrong thing to say. I know it when her eyes turn wide. I see the whites around her blue pupils. Her little nostrils flare. “No,” she says. “No. No. I’m not going anywhere else. I’m going home.”
We’re seconds away from the edge. I can see the waterfall—the long drop and the sharp rocks at the bottom, but I don’t have a fucking paddle.
Jane turns back in her seat, her dark hair falling like silk over her shoulder. “Paige,” she says. That’s all. Paige. There’s a wealth of emotion in that one word. Sorrow and sympathy.
Paige’s lower lip trembles. “I hate this.”
“Yes,” Jane says.
“I don’t want to stay at a hotel. I want to go home.”
“You want to go home,” Jane says. “Where it’s safe. Because you’re afraid.”
“You don’t understand,” Paige says, her voice wavering.
“Then tell me,” Jane says, coaxing. “Why do you want to go home?”
“If I’m not there, my mommy won’t know where to find me.”
The whispered words make my throat tighten. Christ. As if the child didn’t have enough to worry about with a goddamn fire destroying her home and belongings. She also thinks her mother’s coming back? I’d fight a goddamn army for her. I’d dive under an eighteen-wheeler if it would keep her safe, but I can’t protect her from false hope.
“Your mother always knows where you are,” Jane says, reaching back. After a short pause, Paige holds her hand. They stay like that, linked. “She loves you, wherever she is. Wherever you are. Nothing can stop that. Not a fire, not the ocean, nothing.”
A sniffle. A sob. And then Paige does break.

AUTHOR BIO


What does a geeky math nerd know about writing romance?

That's a darn good question. As a former techy I've done everything from computer programming to international trainer. Prior to college I had lots of different jobs and activities that were so diverse, I was an anomaly.

None of that qualifies me for writing novels. But I have some darn good stories to tell and a lot of imagination.

I have lived in Colorado, Hawaii and currently Washington. Going from two states with 340 days of sun to a state with 340 days of clouds, I had to do something to perk me up. And that's when I started this new adventure called author. Joining the Romance Writers of America and two local chapters, helped me learn the craft quickly and was a ton of fun.

My family consists of two grown children, their spouses, two adorable grand-daughters, and one grand dog. My favorite activity is playing with my grand-daughters!

When the girls can't play with their amazing grandmother, my interests are reading and writing, yay! I started reading at a young age with the Nancy Drew mysteries and have continued to be an avid reader my whole life. My favorite reading material is romance in most of the genres, but occasionally other stories creep into my to-be-read pile, I don't kick them out.

Some of the strange jobs I have held are a carnation grower's worker, a trap club puller, a pizza hut waitress, a software engineer, an international trainer, and a business program manager. I took welding, drafting and upholstery in high school, a long time ago when girls didn't take those classes, so I have an eclectic bunch of knowledge and experience.

And for something really unusual... I once had a raccoon as a pet.

Join with me as I tell my stories, weaving real tidbits from my life in with imaginary ones. You'll have to guess which is which. It will be a hoot.
