Some Like it in Handcuffs ~ Re-release day celebration!!!

Today I’m excited to share that my debut book, SOME LIKE IT IN HANDCUFFS, has re-released with Amazon Encore!

BLURB

Sunny Kennedy, the only female in a family of blue blood male detectives, is determined to prove testosterone isn’t the only qualification required to solve a cold case. Handcuffed while undercover then taken to the precinct by an attractive detective, her domineering family demands she work with Detective Judson Blackwolf, or she’s off the case.Judson Blackwolf thinks women in law enforcement should work behind the scenes. The prospect of working with his Captain’s sexy daughter doesn’t thrill him. He only agrees in hopes of solving the murder of his one time mentor’s daughter. Once the case is over, he’s moving to Montana to heal his wounds from the loss of his last partner.But when their investigation takes a dangerous turn, Sunny and Judd soon realize their feelings for each other cannot be denied.

EXCERPT

“This isn’t how I wanted it between us.” Judson grabbed the neckline of her sweater, dragging her body to meet his with a solid thump. Sunny licked her lips in answer to the question in his eyes. He lowered his head to move his mouth over hers.


Sunny closed her eyes, a small whimper escaping her lips. She didn’t want it like this either, but that wasn’t possible. Unable to resist her attraction she accepted it wasn’t an affair, or a long distance romance she craved, but for him to love her back. It was all or nothing for her. Her heart sank. She accepted this as their goodbye kiss.


With no thought to what was happening upstairs, Sunny rose up on her toes demanding more. Her lips pulsated against Judson’s. When his hand trembled against her cheek in a soft caress she lost touch with reality.


“Judson.” Sunny’s weakened body drifted farther into Judson’s as his fingers glided down her arms, pulling them to her sides where their fingers intertwined. He forced them behind her before his tongue thrust into her mouth.


Their bodies molded together, she heard her own heartbeat and his as well when he curved his fingers around her rear and squeezed.


That’s when the click of the handcuffs against her wrist connected her to the handle of the locked cupboard.


“What the hell…Judson?” She looked up at him, her knees shook, her body still inflamed with fever.


“Like I was saying, you wait here and I’ll go upstairs to check it out. Backup’s already been called, so you’re safe until your brothers arrive.” Judson winked before walking toward the steps to the third level. Once he reached them he turned toward her and smiled. “Gotcha,” he whispered with his notorious grin.

Jill Adgate wants three things from life: a successful catering business, a family, and the love of an exceptional man. What she has is no job, a mounting pile of bills, and her outspoken best friend—who sets her up on a blind date with the man who inadvertently ruined Jill’s life.

Chet Castle is a businessman who has everything, except the ability to trust. Burned by a money-hungry fiancée, he refuses to get involved in any relationship that has a shelf life longer than a head of lettuce.

Intrigued by her ambition—and determined to get her in bed—Chet offers Jill the chance of a lifetime: work as his live-in chef and he’ll help her get her catering business off the ground. When sparks fly in the kitchen, Jill realizes what’s cooking is a recipe for disaster…

Farah Smith is on a mission: secure the funds for her twin sister’s surgery.  She’ll do whatever it takes to succeed.  Even if that means putting her values aside to work for a man she finds morally bankrupt.  But when the real Farah meets her new boss, she wonders if she’ll be able to resist his sexy advances long enough to help her sister.
From the blonde wig, to the stilettos strapped around her ankles, Farah’s a clone of Keller Donovan’s harem of past assistants.  She can’t believe she’s let herself be talked into the disguise, let alone working for the man planning to demolish the hospital her sister so desperately needs, but the salary he offers is the only way she’ll be able to afford her sister’s surgery.  The moment Farah meets Keller she realizes her most daunting task isn’t typing, spreadsheets or organizing travel arrangements, but fighting the growing attraction toward a man whose ruthlessness is legendary in the boardroom as well as the bedroom.
Determined not to end up in a disastrous marriage like his divorced parents, Keller believes all relationships should have a shelf life of sixth months or less.  But when he meets Farah, all bets are off.  He not only wants her to continue as his personal assistant, but his own private bed warmer.  Unfortunately, his offer of an affair doesn’t sit well with her fairytale dreams or the strangled hold gripping his heart.

A bit about Bachelor’s Special:

Jill Adgate wants three things from life: a successful catering business, a family, and the love of an exceptional man. What she has is no job, a mounting pile of bills, and her outspoken best friend—who sets her up on a blind date with the man who inadvertently ruined Jill’s life.

A bit about Christine: 

Christine Warner is living her dream in Michigan along with her husband, three children, one laptop and a much loved assortment of furry friends. 

Besides laughing and a good round of humor, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, reading, writing but no arithmitic.  A confessed people watcher, she finds inspiration for her stories in everyday activities.  She loves to read and write about strong heroes and determined, sometimes sassy, heroines.

A girl gone wild, at least where social media is concerned, she enjoys meeting other avid readers and writers on facebook, twitter and her website.

Six Sentence Sunday 5/20/2013

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

This week my six is again from my debut release from The Wild Rose Press title SOME LIKE IT IN HANDCUFFS…A fun, light-hearted romantic suspense with some humor thrown in.  I’m winding down to my last few weeks of featuring this story because I have another book coming out this summer and I’d like to switch things up to include some snippets from that story titled Two-Timing the Boss.

The snippet below is a continuation from last weeks six…the scene where Judson and Sunny are on the verge of…well, read for yourself 🙂

She looped her fingers into his waistband and

tugged his jeans and boxers down. The shudder of

his skin followed her hands as she worked them

down his legs. In no hurry, she thrilled at how her

touch affected him, letting her fingers worship the

hardened muscles of his thigh. Sunny’s eyes widened

as she exposed his impressive body.

Judson stood before her in nothing but a smile.

He was absolutely magnificent to look at.

I hope you enjoyed these six.  For more great snippets please go to SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY.  Or join in the fun next week with six of your own.

Happy Reading!

Six Sentence Sunday 5/13/12

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  AND HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

This week my six is again from my debut release with The Wild Rose Press SOME LIKE IT IN HANDCUFFS.  This is a fun, light-hearted romantic suspense with some humor thrown in.  I’m winding down to my last few weeks of featuring this story because I have 2 more books coming out this summer and I’d like to switch things up to include some snippets from those.

Quick set up: Sunny is definitely a take-charge type gal.  After Judson rescues her from a kidnapping attempt and brings her back to his place, their attraction toward each other can’t be stopped.  After a rough and tumble in Judson’s apartment entry, they make it to the bedroom.  Will they or won’t they?…

Judson moved toward the bed, a large cherry

wood four poster covered in a masculine brown and

burgundy striped comforter. He tossed the pillow

shams on the floor, and placed Sunny’s body onto the

bedding as if she’d break.

She supported herself on one elbow. His fingers

moved to his zipper, but Sunny held up her hand.

His jaw ticked when she sat up and brushed his

hand aside.

“I’ll handle this.”

I hope you enjoyed these six.  For more great snippets please go to SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY.  Or join in the fun next week with six of your own.

Happy Reading!

Six Sentence Sunday 5/6/12

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

I was off for a few weeks, but I’m back with a vengeance!  Okay, maybe not a vengeance, but a more serious six 🙂  This week my six is again from my debut release with The Wild Rose Press SOME LIKE IT IN HANDCUFFS.  This is a fun, light-hearted romantic suspense with some humor thrown in.

Quick set up: After Judson steps in when Sunny is dealing with an overly friendly customer at the bar, she storms off in need of a quiet place to gather her thoughts.  Confused over her own ability to handle situations on her own and how she liked him coming to her rescue, she’s about ready to face facts and feelings.

Sunny backed up, stumbling in her heels. She ran her hand through her hair, spun around, and stormed toward the sanctuary of the ladies room.

The one stall bathroom door slammed shut behind her and she pressed the lock into place. The faded green and white foiled wallpaper covered every wall in the small space and winked at her as the solitary light over the sink reflected against it. She balanced her hands on either side of the porcelain sink and stared at her reflection in the mirror.

He infuriated her. She shouldn’t even care what he thought of her, but she did.

I hope you enjoyed these six.  For more great snippets please go to SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY.  Or join in the fun next week with six of your own.

Happy Reading!
