Thursday, November 21st, 2013 | Blog Hop, Book Pimpage, Coming Soon, Contests

Welcome to my stop on the Cover of Love Blog Hop.


Personally…I love love in all its many facets and shades. It’s one of the reasons I write multicultural and interracial romance. I firmly believe that people should have the choice to date and marry whoever they want to and not be ridiculed for it.

Right now my FAVORITE show on television features an interracial relationship (although taboo because he’s married) which in reality everyone should really HATE but because of the way the show is written…you can’t HELP but love these characters and WANT them to get their happily ever after.


I’m also having a super fan girl crush on Henry Cavill right now. I mean the man is HELLA  FINE and can not take a bad picture. I will NOT admit how many times I’ve watched my DVD of Man of Steel since I went to Target at 9 o’clock in the morning the day it was released. Yes…it’s that bad. (Check out my Pinterest board dedicated to Mr. Superman himself and see if I’m wrong about not taking a bad picture.)


And ever since the mid 1990′s I have adored me some Shemar Moore who is bi-racial (white mother/black father). (You can check out my Pinterest board dedicated to him as well.)


I have finally finished book #4 in the Beach House Nights Series which I hope to have released soon. I’m also putting the finishing touches on a Christmas novella which I really need help on the title (see contest below) and will be working on a Valentine novella as soon as I finish it. After that…I have a couple of series I want to start working on. Not sure which I’m going to start first. Of course…they are all interracial. :-)

I guess I’ll entice you with a snippet from my Christmas novella coming soon and then tell you about the contest. So…check it out.


She turned to see him standing just inside the door. “The rooms are wonderful. I can’t say enough how much you’ve outdone yourself. I mean, it’s better than a hotel room. They’re comfortable with an at home feel.”

A large smile spread across his face. “Good. I’m glad you’re satisfied with the accommodations.”

Oh…she was so much more than that…or could be much more if he…well, she wasn’t going to go there with him being so close and a bed just a few feet away.

“If you need anything, anyone on my staff is available to help you by dialing extension sixty one on the phone, or you can come see me. I’m right across the hall.”

Jorja had moved closer to him, couldn’t help it actually. It always felt like there was an invisible magnet between them. She peered around him. “Your office?”

They stood just over the threshold now, facing each other, so close she could smell the soap and aftershave he’d used this morning. She resisted the urge to lean closer and get a better whiff.

“My living quarters.”

“Oh. You live here too?”

In college, their dorm rooms had been two buildings apart. Knowing he was going to be across the hall from her when she got into bed tonight sent an involuntary sliver of awareness straight down her spine.

“Yes.” He never took his eyes off her face. He’d always been so direct that way, giving her his full attention. Being under his intense gaze had always unnerved her, made her think that he saw and read every expression on her face, knew every thought that crossed her mind.

Heaven forbid.


So, there you go. My heroine is Jorja and my hero is Neal. They went to college together and shared a drunken kiss one night they never talked about but also never forgot! Jorja is coordinating her sisters wedding and she, her sister, and all the bridesmaids are staying in a cozy B&B in Colorado the week before the wedding. Neal just happens to own this B&B and one night decides it’s time to let Jorja know how he’s felt about her all these years and after a kiss under the mistletoe (of course) decides to perform a sexy strip tease that leads to a whole lot more.

I need a title…desperately! I’ve thought of Under The Mistletoe, Strip Tease Under The Mistletoe. Neither of these titles are doing it for me. LOL

Maybe CHRISTMAS UNWRAPPING? Just a thought. I’ve always liked Tony Leung Chiu Wai (from INFERNAL AFFAIRS) and Chang Chen (from CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON and HAPPY TOGETHER).

Loved...loved...loved. Now...since she's finally dealt with the demons of both her parents...if she'd only get pregnant!!! I would really love to see how she combines being the bad-a@@-cop she is with motherhood.
