Under Wraps Excerpt

Available Monday, November 24th at Secret Cravings Publishing

A Christmas Themed Story

This updated work was previously published under the title “enWrappture” with another publisher.

Genre: Contemporary, M/M, BDSM

Spending the Christmas holiday on the east coast, Christopher O’Malley finds himself without family or friends. That is until he meets little Emily, her mother Devyn, and her uncle Mason…a writer whose pen name is Master Stafon. The author of a series of BDSM books Christopher is fascinated with.

Christopher is immediately attracted to Mason, even before he discovers the man’s profession. As Christmas draws near, the holiday looks more appealing as Christopher is given the opportunity of a lifetime. To experience bondage play first hand. Could this be the gift that keeps on giving?



His gaze locked with Mason’s and the air around them stilled, as if the entire world had stopped. The attraction immediately hooked Christopher, sending shivers of lust through his body. He’d felt desire toward others, both men and women, but this was enough to knock the breath from his lungs. Never had the magnetism been this intense, this abrupt.

Mason moved first, rounding the counter, his eyes never leaving Christopher’s. Those all-consuming eyes were brown, the color of delicious milk chocolate. Like his sister, he was of Hispanic descent, skin dark olive and hair dark brown, nearly black. He wore a pair of black jeans and a red T-shirt. Mason stood a couple inches shorter than Christopher.

“It’s nice to finally meet you,” Mason said, holding out his hand to Christopher. “Emily has been talking about you practically non-stop since she came back from the beach.”

Heat flushed Christopher’s cheeks. “Has she? All I did was help her build some sandcastles.”

Mason’s hand felt like fire when it touched his. No callouses. An image of Mason using those long fingers and smooth palms to slowly caress every inch of his skin flashed in his mind. Just the thought of feeling that warmth roaming his body sent sparks of desire to his groin, making him bite back a groan.

“It seems she’s not the only one you left an impression with.” Mason’s eyes cut to his sister for a brief glare. Devyn started setting the table with hardly a glance back at them.

Christopher didn’t know what to say as he drew his hand back from the handshake. How was he to know his little flirting would lead him to an invitation to dinner? But, he wasn’t sorry. Not if it led him to meeting the most gorgeous man he’d ever laid eyes on.

Swallowing, Christopher pushed down the urge to reach out and slide his fingers over the fine jaw covered with a day’s growth.

“Well, I appreciate the invitation to dinner. Emily told me all about how delicious Devyn’s lasagna was. The best in the entire universe, I believe she said.”

“Yep,” Emily chirped from her station at the counter. “Uncle Mason, I think the pudding is done.”

Mason’s gaze wandered over Christopher for a brief moment more before he took a step back, his full attention on Emily. Christopher hadn’t missed the way the other man’s eyes slightly darkened before turning away. His stomach quivered, thankful for the slight sign of mutual attraction. Perhaps tonight wouldn’t be a total disaster after all.

Who is participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)? I am :D I plan on writing the first book of a series a friend and I hashed out about 8 years ago.  O-O Right now I'm adjusting the overall theme of the series and working on some conflicts for the characters in book #1.

That same friend sent me this link to help me out in November. Great tips that I'm going to try and do.

Beautiful view from Alaska

This past summer, I had the opportunity to travel to Alaska with my family. We did the cruise thing, but the sights there were inspirational and absolutely gorgeous. I thought I'd share a little of what I saw with you since I'm stuck doing edits of Under Wraps rather than working on my other projects.
Have a wonderful week!

Currently working on edits for "Under Wraps".  Who knew that a person could put the word "and" so many times in a manuscript. O-O

It's a NaNo Friday

How's NaNo going for all you writers?? I'm nearing 10K and hoping to get a lot more done this weekend!
Here's a question... Where do you go to get appearance inspiration for a character? I'd love to find someone similar to my female main character, because I'm having a hard time keeping what she looks like in my head :S

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend. Going to enjoy the cooler weather we're having down here :D

Am I back???

I'm trying!
Life has truly thrown lots of obstacles at me for several years now and I had almost totally given up on writing at all. *eek* But life once more is changing again, so here I am, participating in NaNo for the first time in several years and I'm determined to do it! My goal is to try and have "Willing Captive" ready to submit to a publisher by the New Year. As well as trying to figure out how to self-publish some of my older, shorter works that I've pulled from Phaze.
Oh, yeah, all my works from Phaze are now mine and I plan to do some rewrites, extentions (since most had word count limits to begin with), and figure out how to get them back on the market in 2014.
Yes, I'm still working part-time, trying to build a business at home so that I can quit "working" for someone, and dealing with my twin sons' senior year, on top of husband, house, and etc... You know how it is to be a wife & mom. :)
So, I can't guarantee regular everyday posts here, but I will be doing some updates, figuring out newsletter stuff, and social media. Also, blogger has changed so much, I' having to figure that out too. LOL I'm hoping some encouragement from readers and other authors will help me keep going!
*hugs* I've missed everyone!

Happy HUMP Day! :D

Tantalizing Tuesday

Allergy season is upon least here in FL. The orange tree blossoms smell heavenly, but hell on the allergies.  I've struggled so much today that I feel like my nose is about to fall off from all the blowing and wiping. Hopefully it will all be over soon, because it's already been a week of this stuff and my medicine isn't helping anymore. :(

Wow! Isn't he ripped???
