Cover: StrikerWelcome to Weekend Writing Warriors on Patricia Green Books! (Follow the link to more fun excerpts.)

On May 23, my 31st book will be released: Striker. It’s a contemporary crime/mystery erotic spanking romance based in Glendale, California. I’m trying to focus on crime/mystery-based stories as I move along in my career.

This segment, from the first few pages of Striker, illustrates how abrasive Jase Striker’s new police partner is. She’s played a practical joke on him at their first meeting.

Laughing, she nearly doubled over with mirth. My face heated, not with embarrassment, but with blazing irritation. Who was this Angelica Piccolino, and how was I going get rid of her?

“Cute,” I said. “You sent me a high school student to work on a homicide. Why would I ever think you were putting me on?” If my tone was gruff, I had a right. No one likes to be the butt of a joke.

Here’s the blurb for Striker — due out May 23.

Detective Jase Striker doesn’t want a partner on the job, and when he’s saddled with Angelica Piccolino—a rookie in the homicide division—he’s more than a little annoyed. But his irritation with his sexy new partner soon morphs into a blistering passion, and though he fears what mixing work with pleasure will do to his crime fighting abilities, she soon proves irresistible.

Despite her diminutive size, Angelica is no stranger to the streets, and at twenty-six years old she’s tired of being treated like a kid. Yet somehow, when her attitude pushes Striker too far and he takes her over his knee for a bare bottom spanking, it merely leaves her desire for him burning even hotter.

Forced to work together as a team, Striker and Piccolino must race against time to hunt down a serial killer whose only calling card is a white rose left with each victim. Can they bring the white rose murderer to justice before another victim turns up?

Publisher’s Note: Striker is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

I will share an extended excerpt before the book hits the market. Stay tuned!

disciplinedownunder_fullWelcome to Weekend Writing Warriors on Patricia Green Books! (Follow the link to more neat excerpts.) I’m fresh out of teaching a writing class, so I’m fired up about the business and the enormous potential we all have for entertaining readers and being successful. I also signed my 31st book contract last week, which makes me mondo happy.

There are only 5 days left to get Discipline Down Under for only $2.99. This is a top-grade, fun, and sparky spanking romance that deals with a spoiled heiress and her down-to-earth Australian bush guide.

Last week’s “episode” showed Peg on her back after falling from a tree. A mysterious stranger offers her a hand up, but then reaches for a knife. Here’s my Weekend Writing Warriors entry for this week.

“Oh, God. Don’t kill me.”

“Hush, sheila.”

Peg was aware that ‘sheila’ was a common term for woman here, so she didn’t think he’d gotten her name wrong. How could he know her name, after all? They hadn’t set eyes on each other before. And that reminded her that she still hadn’t set eyes on him. She had no idea how to describe her attacker, if he let her live.

Is he a good guy or a bad guy? (Hint: it would be a premature end to the story if he was a bad guy.)

Here are a blurb and excerpt. Remember, only 5 days left for the sale price.

Also, if you are interested in having a mentor for your writing career, I’m offering a mentored writing intensive through Savvy Authors. It’s an individual study program, three months long, useful for beginners through advanced students. I’ve been writing a long time and have pretty much “been there, done that” so I can help you be more successful. You’d get personal attention, one-on-one. There are only two spots left. See this post for more details or to sign up for the program.

Welcome! This post is part of the Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop.

disciplinedownunder_fullMy book, Discipline Down Under reached the All Romance eBooks Bestseller list this week. I’m celebrating by sharing a little of it for this hop. There are a summary and excerpt here on my site.

In this segment, our heroine, Peg, has fallen out of a tree while trying to get a good photograph during her Australian adventure. While down in the leaves, a strange man approaches. His face is in shadow.

“Don’t move.”

“What?” It was the first she’d spoken to him and her voice came out almost a squeak.

“Don’t bloody move. Don’t even breathe.”

He was reaching for something.

“I don’t understand,” she whispered, fear growing with each passing second. And then she saw the knife.
