  1. Hi Everyone :) I'm so happy to be back on the RLF. As always I will be posting a few teasers. And I would love to talk to anyone who stops by and chats!

  2. No Longer Alone is my first romantic suspense novel. Here is a little excerpt...
    She glanced over at her boyfriend. His eyes darted between her and the road. The frown on his face grew more severe. He was a volcano on the verge of erupting. She shivered like a child waiting to be punished.
    “I know you’re only twenty-three, Nora, but you should learn to dress like a woman. You are a teacher now, not some easy party girl looking for a good time.” He furrowed his brows, letting out an audible breath. “Your body is for my eyes only, nobody else’s. You need to make sure everyone knows that.”
    She listened to him in bewilderment. The dress she wore came right to her knees and was far from indecent. Nobody was looking anyway. Everyone they worked with already knew they were dating. Tim was completely overreacting, like always. “Maybe you should break up with me, if you feel I flaunt myself. I don’t think there is anything wrong with how I dress.”
    He tightened his grip on the wheel, until the whites of his knuckles showed. She saw in his eyes a glassy expression of anger. Her stomach clenched tight. The silence was a dangerous sign—almost like a warning.
    She looked back out her window. Thick trees aligned either side of the street. They were entering her neighborhood, and just in time. The growing tension made her uncomfortable. Usually Tim was quick to yell and scream, but tonight he was quiet and lethal. Nora wasn’t sure what to do with this new side of her boyfriend, but she felt tense with anticipation of impending doom.
    How did our relationship end up like this?

  3. Burning Desire is the first book in my Bay Shore Series. The second two will be out this summer. Here is a little teaser...
    When the cool night air hit her face and the door to the bar closed behind them, she turned to Andrew and offered him a seductive smile. “Kiss me,” she demanded. Her voice sounded throaty in her ears, and she liked the sound. It was the sound of freedom.
    Andrew’s eyes hooded as he lowered his gaze to her lips. His body moved with an easy grace that contradicted his size as he backed her against the building, linked his fingers with hers, and raised her arms above her head. She felt her pulse quicken as he leaned in, brushing his lips softly against hers, filling her with just a tease of his taste, earthy, masculine, and strong.
    “Are you really married?” he asked. His gaze was on hers and filled with fiery arousal.
    “No,” she whispered, raising her face up to his, aching for another kiss. His scent was so deep, so delightfully masculine and strong, she could not get enough. None of the men in law school tasted or felt like this—made her feel so feminine and small, so achingly hot.
    “Good.” He covered her mouth with his and kissed her hard and long. His tongue flicked against her lower lip, seeking entrance. She allowed him in with a heady groan and enjoyed the feel of his possession. His body pushed against hers and made her ache so hard, she could no longer think. It was only thirty degrees outside, and yet she wondered why she was still wearing a coat.
    Andrew pulled back and pressed his lips against her ear. “Louise, come home with me.”

  4. Hey Susan, glad to see you back today posting. I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed 'No Longer Alone.' I loved the interplay between Eric and Nora and definitely kept me on the edge of my seat with wondering if Tim would win out in the end.

    I am looking forward to starting 'Burning Desire,' especially since it is a series of three. Sounds like it will be a great summer read. I can picture sitting by the lake with a drink in hand, enjoying the sun and your book. Can't wait. Keep up the good work.

    1. Thank you Marion! Your support means a lot to me :)

  5. Woot! Welcome back Susan. :) Glad to see you here.
