Week 4 #Writing Progress Update

Progress bar: So here I am just over the 60k mark and trying to keep the book on track. It’s sort of kicking my ass right now because I realized my hero needs a heftier backstory. And I’m trying to make too many connections with too many of the characters and it’s not working. Here’s a word of advice: never write a dual timeline and then send all your characters back in time thereby converging the two timelines. It, like, hard (post more about writing being hard tomorrow). Lordy. And today instead of adding words, I subtracted words which is NOT the right direction. Here’s hoping for a better tomorrow. Anyway, here is this week’s teaser: Relief spread on her face. “Oh, thank you. I am quite tired. It’s been a difficult time.” She reached into the pocket on her gown and brought out the vial of Tears of the Dryad. Fiona’s heart skipped a beat. “What’s lovely. What is it?” she asked nodding to it. “Faery dust.” The girl grinned and shook it up. “Isn’t it lovely?” “Quite. May I see it?” She held out her hand. Winnie was about to place it in her palm when there was a sharp knock on the door. She put it back in her pocket. Damn the luck. When the girl opened the door, she heard her uncertain voice. “Your Highness?” Fiona melted behind the bed, trying her best to hide. Even though she had her true appearance hidden behind a glamour,…

#TuesdayTeaser: Book 5 – Her Fierce Knight Sneak Peek

Today’s Tuesday Teaser post is a sneak preview of the fifth and final book in the Realm of Honor series, Her Fierce Knight. This story follows Prince Ainthas and the Elven fire princess, Laerwen. Enjoy! “Any news on the king’s illness?” she asked. “No change.” His mouth formed a thin line. She could tell he didn’t like talking about it. “I’m so sorry, Ainthas.” “He hasn’t come to again. Sobriel thought for certain she would see him wake if she stayed by his side. Drake had to force her away.” Ainthas kept his gaze on the road ahead. Never looking at her. She could hear the emotion in his voice, knew it troubled him. “I don’t know what’s to become of him. If he doesn’t wake up…” It was her turn to reach for him. She wrapped her fingers around his wrist, her thumb caressing the soft skin there. “He will.” Their slow trot came to a halt. He edged his horse closer to hers. When he lifted his eyes to meet her gaze, her stomach fell to her knees. Which was quite a feat while sitting atop a horse. She started to remove her hand but he clamped his other one on top of it. Holding her there. Keeping her pinned. No, not pinned. Warmth from his skin rippled through her. Her breath hitched when she realized he leaned toward her, his lips parted slightly and his eyes half-lidded. Oh, gods, he was going to kiss her. And she…

My Sexy Saturday! #MSSWeek34 – Feb 1, 2014

Welcome to another edition of My Sexy Saturday! Today’s snippet comes from my current work-in-progress, Her Fierce Knight, the fifth book in the Realm of Honor series! Oh, gods, he was going to kiss her. And she was going to let him. She angled her head to one side as his lips brushed hers, leaving behind a tingling sensation she had never anticipated. It shuddered through her entire body right down to the ends of her toes. When he started to move away, she knew she couldn’t let him. Her hands came up to his face, pressing against each cheek. She pulled him to her, kissed him with a sort of voraciousness even she didn’t expect or know she possessed. Their mouths collided, lips pressed against lips. Her tongue seeking his. Tasting. Teasing. His mouth was like a velvet recess made solely for her. He tasted of wild berries and something sweet. Like honeywine. He let her take her time exploring and when he decided he wanted to be in charge, his hands lifted to her face, cupped her cheeks and tilted her head back further. To deepen the kiss. To take more pleasure. Her fingers curled into the silky strands of his hair, twining the locks between her fingers. She couldn’t stop the mewl vibrating through her throat. When his lips wandered from hers, he kissed a trail across her jaw and down her throat. Her head fell back to give him more access. “I shouldn’t…” His breath was…
