Brrr….if you’re anywhere in the USA that’s cold and you need a break to take your mind off the windchill think about cuddling up with a book! I know I’ve been snuggling in with a warm blanket, a cup of cocoa, and a good book off and on all week…(in between writing)

 bs 200 x 300

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 9/9/12

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week I’d like to share my 8th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which is available in print and ebook 🙂

I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

QUICK SET UP: We’re jumping ahead a few chapters. Farah is settling into her new job and even managing to wear her disguise with no more wardrobe malfunctions—for now! Today is her day off, and she’s just finished shopping at the wig store for an accessory and she’s totally out of disguise when all of a sudden…

With a quick glance in each direction of the sidewalk, she waited for an opening then joined the masses. Not slowing her stride she looked down to slide her wallet inside her purse and within seconds came up against something hard. A solid body. Not muscles on muscles, but firm enough that whoever it belonged to either spent time in the gym or worked a physical job.

An automatic apology forming, she looked up only to gulp down her squeal of surprise. A pair of familiar Caribbean blue eyes smiled at her.

Who do you think those eyes belong to?

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 9/2/2012

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week I’d like to share my 7th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which released in both ebook and print on Friday, August 24th with The Wild Rose Press.  WHOOT WHOOT!!

I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

QUICK SET UP: We’re now in Farah’s pov and she was just shown around the office on her first day by Robin the receptionist. Farah—forgetting for a moment all the deception she’d used to get her new job—was just thinking how lucky she felt to be back in the work force and admiring her new office—with a window to boot…when all of a sudden…

The doors to her boss’s office burst open. A gust of air blew across her face, lifting a tendril of hair from her shoulder to tickle her nose. The boom of Mr. Donovan’s voice chased two harried men in suits from his office. Orders to get the job done, do it right, and make it happen now nipped at their heels.

Farah swallowed the smile she’d worn all morning. Mr. Bossy yelled for Robin, who stepped into his office and discreetly closed the door, and with a quick glance around the deserted room, Farah cleared her throat as a slow burn evaporated all moisture from her tongue.

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 8/26/12

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week I’d like to share my 6th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which released in both ebook and print on Friday, August 24th with The Wild Rose Press.  WHOOT WHOOT…cue the ballons and streamers and the sexy shirtless men with glistening biceps and rippling abs pouring champagne 🙂

Whew…*fanning myself* Back to reality and controlling the need for a run on sentence! lol

I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

QUICK SET UP: We’re still in Keller’s POV and he’s just offered Farah the position of personal assistant and she’s accepted. Farah—in total good employee mode—offers to start the next day. We start out with Keller’s response.

“Take the remainder of the week and get yourself situated then come in fresh Monday morning, seven-thirty.”

When her tongue flicked out to wet her lips, his insides shifted. The sunlight coming through the bank of windows touched the moistness her tongue left behind. He envisioned his thumb tracing the curve of her upper lip before he lowered his head to take a sample. She’d taste like sugar, of that he felt certain. At this point he just wasn’t sure if it’d be imitation or the real thing.

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 8/12/12

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week I’d like to take up from where I left off last week and share my 4th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss that officially releases August 24th with The Wild Rose Press.

FUN ALERT! I just found out Two-Timing the Boss was released 2 weeks early in print format (the ebook will still be released on August 24th)…here are the links…I’m so excited!

The Wild Rose Press

Amazon

Now back to the regularly scheduled program…

I’ve included the blurb afterward to give you a better idea of what the story is about.

I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

Quick setup:  Farah made her way into Keller Donovan’s office for her interview and had an unlucky mishap in her tower high heels. Before she kissed the floor, Keller caught her and saved her from embarrassment. She’s a little shaken and parts of her disguise aren’t quite secure as they were minutes ago. This snippet takes off from there in Keller’s POV…

“I can’t believe you still want to interview me,” she smiled, a slow parting of her slim, bow shaped lips revealed even white teeth.

He stood, captivated by the curve of her mouth until her smile wavered then disappeared. After giving himself a mental shake, he led her to one of the leather chairs. Instead of taking the seat beside her, or making his way around his desk, he perched on the ornate carved edge before her. Keller rubbed his chin between thumb and forefinger and regarded the latest candidate HR had sent up, a replica of his last three assistants. Either the only qualified graduates applying were tall blue-eyed blondes dressed in wool business suits, or the university on the other side of town was in mass production of administrative clones.

“Tell me why you’d like to work at Donovan Enterprises?”

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!
