Welcome…welcome…to this weeks Throwback Thursday! Today’s excerpt is from a story a wrote for Samhain Publishing. I had so much fun writing this little novella. Can you say “Strip Uno?” Enjoy!
* * * * * *
Wesley placed his blue eight on top. She followed with a blue four. He played his blue eight. He hoped she’d play a card so he could change the color on his next play. He lucked out when she played a yellow eight. After they exchanged a couple of yellow cards, he ended with his skip card. “Start getting naked,” he said and laughed.
She stuck her tongue out at him, but grinned. She took off her shoes first. Since he didn’t have another yellow card, he had to pull.
Their game pressed on with both of them having to remove several items of clothing, but neither had pulled the lucky Wild Draw Four card. Sierra still had on a matching purple— he was sure now that was her favorite color—panty and bra set. He had on his boxer shorts and a wife-beater T-shirt.
“Oooh, you are so not going to win this game.” She smirked.
“It ain’t over ’til it’s over, baby.”
“I must have buried that Wild Four card deep down in the deck. But it’s coming. I’m sure of it.”
“Yep, it’s coming right to me,” he said as he pulled a card from the stack. And when he did, a slow grin spread across his face.
“Huh-uh. No,” she said, sticking out her bottom lip. “Please don’t tell me you pulled the Wild Four.”
He hunched his shoulders and smiled. “Okay, I won’t tell you.”
“I’ll show you.”
“Ugh,” she growled.
Wesley slapped the card on the table, reared back in his chair and yelled. “Remove the rest of those clothes Ms. Morgan. The game is O-V-E-R,” he spelled out.
“Come on, you’re not going to really make me take them off. Are you?”
“Wesley,” she whined.
“You want me to do it for you?”
“Why did I make up this stupid game?”
He laced his hands together and placed them behind his head. “I enjoyed it myself.”
“Of course you did. You won.
“That’s right. So again, start stripping.”
She rose out of her chair and hooked her fingers beneath her bra straps and pulled both of her arms through. When she unhooked it from the back, a smile melted over his face. “Oh, yeah. That’s it. Take it off.”
She tossed it across the table at him. When he picked it up and placed it on his head, she laughed. “You’re stupid, you know that?”
“Yep. Keep going,” he said.
But as she linked her fingers inside her panties and began to pull them down, his eyes glazed over. He remembered why playing this game was really fun. Her body was amazing. Full breasts, curves in all the right places, and that thatch of hair between her legs made his mouth water.
“You happy now?” she quipped.
When he stood up with a rock hard dick sticking out from the front of his shorts, she would already know the answer to that question. “What do you think?”
The tip of her tongue snaked out and licked her lips. “I guess so.”
Wesley rounded the table and took her in his arms.
* * * * * *
Wounded cop Wesley Duncan is sent on a forced vacation to spend a week at Tempted, the perfect place for him to relax and recover. But recovery becomes the last thing on his mind when he discovers sexy spa owner Sierra is the only woman around.
After a hectic year and a half making Tempted a success, Sierra Morgan is looking forward to having her Florida resort all to herself for a whole week. The last thing she needs is someone messing up her plans to be blissfully alone.
But when a seriously hot stranger shows up, Sierra is thoroughly tempted to make a serious change of plan.

Welcome to my first official Throwback Thursday! I got this mag idea from my good buddy Shelli Stevens. Today’s excerpt is from the third novella I ever wrote and published. Hope you enjoy it!
* * * * * *
“Come on, Jasmine, all you have to do is keep him company for one week.”
“I’m supposed to be traveling to Little Rock for your wedding, Kim, not playing entertainment hostess to your nerdy cousin. I thought you wanted me to enjoy myself. You know how I hate this mushy lovey-dovey stuff.”
Kim, her best friend in the world was getting married, and suddenly she springs this request on her. Jasmine was happy for her. Really she was. Kim and her fiancé, Daniel, had a unique and wonderful relationship. Not only did they seem happy and madly in love, their love had transcended distance, and they’d still made it. Kim was one of the lucky ones. Luckier than Jasmine’s parents, who’d gone through a horrible divorce.
Kim sent her a pleading look from across the short distance that separated the two airplane seats. “I’m not asking you to have sex with him, just make sure he has fun and enjoys himself.
“Right, while I’m miserable. When was the last time you saw him, anyway?”
“About four years ago, before he went to medical school. But we talk on the phone all the time.”
Oh, great. He was probably the epitome of the high school nerd; glasses, pencils in his shirt pocket, and penny loafers.
“How exactly am I supposed to entertain him? I’ve never been to Little Rock. Why didn’t you ask Daniel to keep him busy? You know, let him hang out with the boys, go to a bachelor party or two?”
“I did. However, he needs some female companionship, too. Mom told me that ever since he graduated from medical school all he does is go to work and come home. Then he spends hours in the lab working on his experiments.”
“That’s great. He’s a Frankenstein, too! How can you do this to me, Kim? I have half a mind to get off this plane and catch the next one right back to Dallas.”
“You wouldn’t do that to me. You’re my maid of honor. You wouldn’t abandon your very best friend in the whole wide world like that, would you?”
Jasmine squirmed around in the tight quarters of her seat and tried to stretch her legs. Even though the flight was only an hour, the cramped area didn’t help her knees at all. She looked at Kim and wished she could tell her ‘yes,’ but she wouldn’t. Kim was right. She was the best friend she had. The only friend.
Too busy the last three years getting her Internet lingerie and exotic toy business operational, she didn’t have time for other entanglements. Now she was enjoying the fruits of her labor, but there was still a lot of work to do if she was going to stay successful.
“No, Kim, I’m not going to abandon you. But you owe me. Big time.”
“You got it. Once I get back to Dallas, you name it and it’s yours.”
The fasten seatbelt sign came on, so Jasmine reached around her side and snapped her belt back in place. “How in the world am I going to entertain someone I have nothing in common with, who is a complete nerd, and probably has no social skills whatsoever?”
“Quit being so mean. You might be surprised to know that you two actually do have a lot in common.”
“Puh–leaze. There is no way I’m going to believe I have something in common with Dr. Frankenstein.”
Laughing as the airplane taxied to a stop, Kim remarked, “How about complete obsession with work… Umm…hasn’t been on a date in over six months… Umm…probably hasn’t had a good fuck in—”
Jasmine loosened her belt and stood up to get her bag from the overhead compartment. “Okay, I get it. That still doesn’t mean we’ll get along.”
“It doesn’t mean that you won’t, either. Oh, one more thing. Evan is picking us up.”
“What?” Embarrassed, Jasmine looked around. With her luck, he’d be standing right beside them.
“Mom and Daniel are busy with last minute wedding plans, and Monique had to work. So I asked him to pick us up.”
She muttered obscenities under her breath. “Just remember. You owe me.”
“I know. Big time,” she said with a chuckle and a smile.
Walking into the airport’s waiting area, Jasmine looked around for the geekiest male in the crowd. A very tall, broad shouldered, fine-as-hell shot of chocolate walked toward them.
Beside her, Kim yelled, “Evan!” Her friend ran over to the man, then hugged and beamed up at him.
Oh shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. This cannot be happening to me.
* * * * * *
Jasmine Martin doesn’t believe in happily ever after. However, her best friend is getting married and she’s promised to be her maid-of-honor. In Las Vegas six months ago, Jasmine enjoyed a passionate night with a sexy doctor named Evan. After all what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Right?
That’s all about to change when sexy Evan turns out to be her best friends cousin. After seeing Evan again, their one night becomes a one-week stand. Evan Harris believes it’s fate that brought Jasmine back into his life. Can Evan convince Jasmine to turn their one-week stand into forever?
