It's entirely possible, if you're on any of my social media accounts, that you've heard me screaming about Sweet Obsession. I'm promise, that's almost done. As I explained on my Facebook group:
You will probably see me post on Sweet Obsession every day this week. You know I don't usually bombard you with book posts (if you're new here...please take note of that). Yes, I'll post about books when they come out or I'll tell you about what I'm working on, but overall, I really want this to be a FUN place.
But this week.... It's a huge week for me.
I'm trying to hit the USA Today Best Seller's list and every sale matters!
So if you enjoy steamy romance, if you love Bolthouse Security, or just want to help me pursue a dream, please buy Sweet Obsession from your favorite bookseller!
Thank you tons...your support means the world to me!
While I am in this collaboration with twelve other people, it's a very personal project to me. Just over 15 years ago, I had my first book accepted for publication by Ellora's Cave (defunct) and I was with them for several years. I also wrote for Total-e-Bound (which has since changed it's name), Resplendence Publishing (defunct) , and All Romance eBooks (defunct). It's been a long road to get to where I am now.
But there's been this elusive thing. The thing I'm hoping to crow about next week, here and on my social media platforms. If I can't yell about making it, I will give a retrospect because I am so proud of all the people who've been involved in this endeavor, authors in the anthology or not. It's been amazing, heartwarming and awe-inspiring.
Before I tell you more about the overall anthology, I want to share some favorite story quotes selected from fellow anthology writer, Ember Flint.
LUCKY RIDE by Ashley Bostock
“She held his gaze, seeing for the first time the flecks of gold mixed in with his brown eyes. But they weren’t pure brown, not like hers. They were more hazel. Green. Blue. Gray. So much more dazzling than brown. Her stomach flip-flopped. Kade Jenkins was utterly gorgeous. Too bad he was a player. Womanizer. On a mission to make her life difficult.”
MY HEART’S OBSESSION by Barbra Campbell
“What are you doing out here?” She stops a few paces away. “Enjoying this beautiful day.” I'm not the only one with a shirt clinging tight. Her curves are even more edible than I imagined, making my drenched sweats more of a problem. She extends her hands, palms up. “Most people wouldn't consider this a beautiful day.” “Most people aren’t looking at you.” I reach for her hands, hope racing through me, and she lets me take them. ”
SWEET SURRENDER by Fern Fraser
“I want to mark her, claim her and satisfy her every need. I can’t get my precious girl stripped naked and into bed fast enough. I set her down on her feet beside the bed and kiss her neck, inhaling her delicious scent. I move fast to strip off her shirt and bra, then undo her pants and slide them off her. I break the kiss and point to the bed. “Now,” I gruff, in the most commanding voice I can muster.”
MOUNTAIN MAN’S HEALER by Sadie King
“Hell, I should stop fooling myself. I’m here in the hope of seeing the mountain man. It’s been four weeks since I saw him wielding an axe like some kind of wilderness hero. And the image of his muscular torso rippling as he swung his tool is imprinted on my brain.”
BLANKETS & LAUGHTER by Megan Wade
“Pulling her hands from mine, she suddenly launches herself at me, arms wrapping around my shoulders as her mouth collides with mine, her tongue seeking passage past my lips. Without a second thought, I catch her, and in a moment of weakness, I kiss her back...hard. My body responds to her delicate probing, and I can't help myself, my hands dropping to her ass and drawing her closer.”
SWEET TEMPTATIONS by Lana Love
“People assume that because I have a lot of tattoos and am physically imposing, I’m dangerous and mean. Fine, you back me into a corner and threaten me, fuck yeah, I’m dangerous – but I don’t seek it out like the guys I did time with. I want to live my life in peace, help other men find that same peace, and stay out of prison. And now I want Renee. I’m not sure how it could work between us, but I’m willing to listen to her and figure it out.”
LOVING LAYLA by Brynn Paulin
“Layla moaned into my mouth. My weight might be pinning her to the bed, but she liked it. Her sounds and the way she fisted my hair and wildly moved beneath me, trying to find even more pleasure, made that clear. And me…I was lost in a dream, hardly able to believe this was happening, that I was here with her. The more time that passed, the more I was determined not to ever lose this.”
WIRED by Jane Fox
“She moves closer, closing the distance between us and letting me pull her in tight, just like I’ve wanted to do ever since the first time I laid eyes on her. And Jesus, nothing has ever felt better than she feels against me right now. She feels like… home. Like forever.”
SET IN STONE by Haven Rose
“My love for you is greater than all the stars in the sky.” Adam may not speak from the heart often – he prefers to show what’s inside it instead – but when he does, holy moly. The beauty of it rivals Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson, and Shakespeare combined.”
DELICIOUS by Lia Violet
“We were laughing, even as we got each other’s shirts off. Then we were kissing again, our hands and mouths moving urgently. “You taste like dessert,” he said, licking my collarbone. “Like the best, most decadent dessert I’ve ever had.”
ONE NIGHT WITH A BODYGUARD by Eve London
“We stood there, neither of us moving while my heart galloped through my chest. Then she turned. Her hands held the top of her dress in place. I wanted to slide the narrow straps from her shoulders, wanted to kiss the shallow divot at the base of her throat, wanted to lower my head and revel in her scent. “Is that all you needed?” I ground out, not recognizing the primal need in my voice. “There is one more thing if you’re up for it.” She gazed up at me, the need in her eyes matching my own.”
SUGAR HIGH by Mimi Kinley
“Her hungry gasp gains me entrance to her sweet warm mouth and I waste no time. I know my kiss is desperate and demanding but I can’t stop, and when her timid tongue becomes sure of itself, I go deeper, tongues dancing, breath mingling, fingers gripping, until I’ve backed her up against her cake display refrigerator. Again, I should stop, but now that I’ve tasted her, now that I know how delicious she is, I’m addicted.”
Rocking her Silence by Ember Flint
"I've gone crazy over this girl. She the one woman that wouldn't give me the time of day and I want no one but her. It figures. And there isn't a single specific thing that I can pinpoint and say: Yes, that's what it is. That's how she got me. It's everything about her."
(It goes up to 3.99 on Monday 4/18)
