Welcome to Teasers
Every month I offer spots in my newsletter where we can get a snippet of a story that arouses the reader — hints at mystification — a quickening that stirs the blood.
My First Teaser
“How old are you?” I asked, finding no noticeable wrinkles. The oddness of the question at that particular moment surprised us both.
“Twenty-nine.” He slowly stood up and moved toward me.
“Oh.” I watched him carefully.
“Does age matter to you, Becka?” He raised his hand.
“Matter for what?”
“Does it matter how old I am if you want me and I want you?” He took another small step, closing the distance . “Besides, your mother already told me you’ve only got me by a few years. I like older women.” He winked and flashed that disarming smile again.
Becka Clemmons’ one true passion is running the Health Nut Café. Awakened every morning by the same nightmare, Becka sees the world through tainted eyes. She’s never believed in fairytale romances until Jonathan Parker walks through the café door one cool, foggy morning. She struggles to understand why this familiar stranger makes her crave things she’s never craved. Solving the mystery of Jonathan is the first thing that has ever taken her focus away from her cafe.
Imagine missing someone you’ve never met…
Jonathan Parker is the idealistic son of old money who knows exactly what he wants. Day after day, he searches to find the missing connection that eludes him, until the morning he lays eyes on Becka. He knows his search is over but the struggle to make her believe has just begun. From that moment, he works to prove to Becka that they belong together.
Will Becka let herself believe? Will Jonathan’s family ruin their chance at love?

Even though the cut appeared short in length, the glass had pierced deep.
Inwardly, he cursed the person responsible. When she winced, his gaze shot to her face. She met his concern with a smile. “Let’s say it tickled.”
She’d caught him. Her swirling, gray eyes held him like a thundercloud trapping him on a mountaintop. The electrified air circling him didn’t have the oxygen to keep him level-headed. His hand slid over silk skin as it left her foot and moved up her calf. Her lips parted for a shallow breath.
Her warm breath rushed over his face as his mouth overtook hers. A burning rose from deep in his body. Hot desire pumped through his racing heart. She relaxed into him. Her lips opened further.
Romance. Rebecca Hudson suspected it was more than a telemarketer’s phone call that kept her cousin, Amanda Hudson, from returning to their Denver apartment. When her doubts are confirmed, Rebecca dives into Amanda’s past. How did a fatal crash from years ago relate to Amanda being abducted now? Rebecca stumbles into Ryan Foster, the man who taught Amanda everything she knew about automotive. He may have his mind set on saving Amanda but his heart beats in a different direction. Rebecca’s body responds with equal intensity and after one night with Ryan, she feels the need to run as much as Amanda.
Revenge. After a collision smothered his flower known as Danielle, Gersham Pearson, better known as Germ, rotted in the mountain town of Bayfield until one car repair leads him to sudden suspicion. Could Amanda Hudson be responsible for the crash that destroyed his life? Enraged, he plans to show her how he suffered, force her to feel what it was like to be in a car she couldn’t control. Unfortunately, after sabotaging Amanda’s Jeep, she isn’t the one who climbs into the driver seat but Rebecca. He’ll have to take a more hands-on approach to teaching Amanda a fatalistic driving lesson.
Redemption. Ryan Foster meant to distract 12-year-old Amanda from the memory and pain of her mother’s leaving. He gave her tools and put her to work, but the act of abandonment haunted her. In high school, bullies tormented her until an automobile accident took the life of one. Ryan thought he’d given Amanda the knowledge to cause such destruction. But now, holding a part he never knew existed and dealing with an overly invasive Germ, new clues emerge. They could prove Amanda innocent, and once shadows no longer lurk in his heart, he could pursue its truest desire. All it should take is a phone call.

My Next Teaser
FREE January 1, 2018
Blaze Knight has been through hell and back, but the nightmares aren’t over yet.
Five years after Blaze was maimed by Cyrus Chimola, a powerful vampire with a penchant for torture, he’s still trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. As a genetically engineered mercenary with the ability to bend fire to his will and to see in infrared, Blaze’s mission is to protect what’s left of humanity. When Chimola and his crew return to the Bronx gunning for Blaze’s blood, Blaze is forced to face the demons of his past. Hell-bent on revenge, he seeks the help of Valerie Medeiros, an NYPD detective who manages to steal his heart and save his life in more ways than one.
Motivated by her sister’s gruesome death, Valerie has made it her life’s goal to bury every vampire in the ground where they belong. When she brings in Blaze Knight for suspected murder, she discovers he’s not only innocent, he isn’t a man at all—he’s a half-vampire hybrid working with a band of brothers for the U.S. military. Valerie has a hard time trusting anything with fangs, yet she quickly falls headlong into Blaze’s life, a life full of darkness and horror she can’t even begin to fathom. The bodies are stacking up, but Valerie can’t seem to let go of this hybrid, a beautiful monster filled with pain, rage, and passion unlike anything she’s ever known.
In a world where the line between good and evil is blurred, Blaze and Valerie will find danger at every turn, risking everything they’ve come to know and love, including one another.
