Just a quickie...

Ahhh, my lovely blog how I've missed you so!

I'm sorry to have neglected this little corner of my world... I've been up to lots of saucy naughty writing stuff and am hoping that my new book, Taking Flight will be out in August from Xcite - it's the prequel to A Clockwork Butterfly, so I'm pretty excited.

This is just a quickie to check in, say hello and dive off again as it is too late for me - my eyes are crossed and my fingers are starting to stutter!

I'll be taking part in the Smut Alfresco event in August - there will be lots of goodies to win and fab book recommendations for your reading joy...
Take a look at this lovely banner - soon to have pride of place on my side bar (missus!)

Anyhoo, I'm rambling and the gin is calling.

Ahhh, the life of a writer!

Nighty night and sweet dreams,

Wanted: Wife!

The lovely Beachwalk babe, Lacey Wolfe is here to tell you about her new book:
Wanted: Wife
By Lacey Wolfe

Help Wanted: A Wife
Darcy White can't believe she's answering a help wanted ad from someone looking to hire a wife, but she's hit rock bottom and is on the verge of being evicted from her apartment. When she learns that the guy she had a crush on in high school is the one looking to hire, she'd be crazy not to live out her fantasy.
Steven McDonald needs a wife, or at least a fiancée, before his grandfather retires or else he won't inherit the family business. He knows not just any woman will do, and in a desperate attempt to find a solution, he places a help wanted ad in the local paper. The day Darcy White answers it, his dreams begin to come true.
As Darcy and Steven pretend they're engaged, they make a promise to keep things platonic. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to keep their hands off one another. With his grandfather's retirement approaching, and the possible end to their fake engagement, can Steven and Darcy admit their feelings to not only themselves but each other?
Content Warning: contains adult language and sensual love scenes

"I'm making coffee, want any?" Darcy called from the kitchen.
As Steven entered the kitchen he said, "I'd love a cup."
Steven leaned against the counter. Darcy poured water into the coffee maker and then scooped the coffee in. After she pressed the brew button, she turned and stared back at him.
"That wasn't so bad," he said.
She nodded. "Yeah, it was okay."
Steven laughed. "Your parents were kind." He reached his hand out toward her.
Darcy walked to him, taking his hand.
"Your dad gave us his blessing."
"I had no doubt he would. Your family is well known."
Steven wasn't sure what had come over him, maybe it was the scotch he'd shared with her dad, but he couldn't resist the beautiful woman in front of him. He tugged her to him, and her body molded against his perfectly. With his free hand, he pushed her hair behind her ear and then pressed his lips to hers. He expected resistance from her, but she opened up right away, wanting the kiss as much as he did.
Sliding his hand around her neck, he tilted her head so he could deepen the kiss. Her fingers danced around his waist and the little sensation went straight to his groin. Releasing her hand, he gripped her waist and pulled her into him. He was hard and it pressed into her and she didn't seem to mind. Damn this woman! She should be pushing away from him, reminding him they were to stay friends, but instead he kept hoping her hand would find its way lower.
Could they do this once and then pretend it never happened? His erection was telling him yes, but his brain was telling him no. He started to pull away from the kiss, but Darcy wouldn't let him.
God, he was turned on and wanted to touch her, taste her, explore her. He needed her!
"Stop, Darcy." He pushed her off him.
She stepped back, a shocked look on her face.
"I can't control myself. I want to take you to bed so bad."
"I want that too." She moved closer to him again and wrapped her arm around his neck and let her other hand dangle at his waistband. "Can't we have a little fun?"
Do it or not? Yes or no? His core ached and taunted him. Taking a deep breath, he decided to listen to the head below.
He lifted Darcy up and sat her on the counter. His lips were everywhere. Her neck, collarbone. His hands were greedy as they worked the buttons on her blouse. "Stop me now, Darcy."
She gazed into his eyes and then cupped his erection through his pants. "No."
"No turning back?"
"No turning back."

Warning: You'll be seeing some great books, so expect your 'I want to read it' list to increase "

So I was there two years ago when it all started! I simply cannot believe it has been that long - I had written several short stories for other publishers but my paranormal novella, Mia's books was just a little to quirky for them... enter Beachwalk - who began to follow me on Twitter. As soon as I checked out their website, I thought, 'that's the one', and lo and behold, they accepted my book. I am thrilled to see Beachwalk grow and thrive and look forward to working with them for many more years.
I am offering an ebook copy of Mia's Books and a £5 (or $ equivalent) Amazon gift card as an extra prize for those who comment below.
So, here we go, a little bit about Mia's Books - I was so excited to receive reviewer's choice at Twolips Reviews for this steamy little paranormal novella.

Ghost lover or mortal? Can Mia choose both?
The book had changed. It was now jet black and lay seductively by the bed. Gently lifting her covers off, Mia slowly, slowly made her way over to it as if she was trying to capture a bird.
Her fingers were trembling. Cold air chilled her hands as she reached out and picked it up. Open Me. Thick raised letters gave her instruction. And she did.
Rows upon rows of names and numbers merged into each other. It was a phone directory. Mia was disappointed, but curiosity kept her flicking the pages, watching number after number fly by. She was about to close it and just go back to bed when she realized the numbers were all the same and the name wasn’t a name at all—it was another instruction.
Call Me.
Mia flushed with excitement. Was this her ghost lover contacting her for real? She reached for the phone and dialed the number before she could change her mind.
Mia flopped back onto the bed and let the phone fall by her ear. She began to ponder the fear that she might actually be going mad when a voice startled her.
“Hello?” She thrust the handset to her ear and strained to hear. “Hello?” she repeated, barely able to breathe in her excitement.
“Mia?” came a breathy whisper that set her nerve endings alight.
“Yes?” she whispered back.
“I need to s…” The voice faded, and Mia started to panic.
“What? You need to what? Please...don’t go.”
“...see you...” The sound was so faint that Mia had to strain to catch it. “Meet me at the park at dusk.” The line went dead.
Mia was exhilarated. It hadn’t been a dream. She was going to meet her ghost lover once more! She hadn’t been on a date for ages. Not since the insomnia had made her feel like a ninety-five year-old grumpy hag. She suddenly felt young again—young and ready for anything.
* * * *
Mia waited nervously at the cast iron gates of the park. They were gothic and ornate and framed the entrance in grandeur. Biting at her thumbnail and shivering with excitement, she watched people bustle past on their way home from work. She felt very naughty, and it only heightened her arousal. She had chosen to wear her full-length sheepskin coat, a seventies classic that she had picked up in a vintage shop. It never failed to make her feel sexy, especially in her knee high boots. But tonight she had the added joy of being naked underneath. The sensation of the soft, lush wool pressed closely to her skin made her yearn for her lover.
She waited.
And waited.
Her eyes flitted about, catching the gaze of passersby. With no idea who to look for, she glanced hopefully at any handsome man or pretty lady, then quickly averted her eyes if they looked back. Suddenly, she noticed a tall, dark man head purposefully toward her. Her heartbeat quickened, and her throat tightened. He was stunning. He was more than anything she’d hoped for. And the way he strode directly toward her made her want to swoon in his arms. She pressed her thighs together and tried to look demure with a fierce flush rising from deep within her abdomen.
“Are you waiting for me?” The man stared at her intensely. His eyes were the palest blue with flecks of raven black.
“Yes,” was all Mia could say, and he linked his arm through hers, guiding her swiftly away, toward a waiting taxi.
“You know where,” he told the driver, never taking his eyes from Mia’s face.
His voice was like velvet, and she let herself be wrapped up in it. Mia watched this stranger devour her with his eyes and caught her breath as a hand gripped her knee.
“You are gorgeous,” he said, and Mia was drenched in his thick, husky voice. “I want to eat you up.” His fingers squeezed her thigh hard, and her eyes widened. She was utterly helpless under his spell. 

And there you have it! If you would like to be in with the chance of winning an ebook and/or £5 Amazon Gift card and to be entered into the prizedraw leave me a comment below - remember your email address so we can get in touch :D
