Sneak Peek Sunday

Sneak Peek Sunday is a blog hop where you can sit back, enjoy your coffee, and read six paragraphs of the blogger’s work-in-progress, or published work. It’s a great way to get a little “peek” and maybe find a book you want to put in your “to be read” pile. 🙂 Click the links in the sidebar to follow my blog, or on Twitter or Facebook! Thanks for stopping by, and have a fabulous day!!

This week, I am offering a sneek peek from my first 1Night Stand, Senator, Mine,  published by Decadent Publishing. After you’ve read it, please click on the banner above and go to the list of authors participating this Sunday!

Eleanor adjusted her pack on her shoulders and stood at the curb, waiting to cross the Via dei Fori Imperiali. The crumbled ruins of the Roman Forum spread out on the opposite side of the road like shell fragments scattered along the shore after a violent storm. She clutched her newly acquired treasure and joined the horde of tourists sweeping across the road in a giant swarming wave as drivers tried to skim past without hitting anyone. People, pointing and posing alongside the entrance to the ruins, clamored and chatted.

For a moment, she wished she had stayed longer in the little shop. At least it was quiet. And much cooler. She closed her eyes and squeezed the ring, taking comfort in its smoothness. Darius. She’d have to research the senator when she got back to the hotel. For now, she had to figure out if she could go through with her hasty 1Night Stand commitment. A night to remember forever was the promise, but was it the right thing to do? She hadn’t expected a match to happen so quickly.

She turned to face the past and stepped onto the stone walkway that meandered through the ruins. The Forum sprawled before her. Rome, its glory crumbled around her like old dreams, beckoned her closer. Her relationship with Peter hadn’t lasted long enough to make its mark on the world. Not a pebble remained of their shared glory. Had it been a mirage? Or a mistake? To invest so much in something so new felt out of place here in the Eternal City.

Yet the powerful Rome had fallen, too, and left its secrets scattered along the Via Sacra. If such a nation couldn’t stand the test of time, how could she expect love to last past a fleeting moment? What right had she to demand more?

Her time in Rome had become a therapy session.

A laughing couple jostled her as they passed, oblivious. The woman twirled a single red rose. The 1Night Stand encounter was just what she needed. No one would ever have to know.

Black Friday Blog Hop with Decadent Publishing

Hi!

Thanks for stopping by my blog on the Decadent Publishing Black Friday Blog Hop!  After you are done here, please make sure you click either the button above or the link at the very end of this post so you can visit everyone else. Lots of prizes on this hop, so make sure you hit every site!

I currently have three 1Night Stand releases with Decadent Publishing. Here are the fabulous covers (all by Mina Carter):

Here are the blurbs. Please check out each of them, then vote in the poll! Info about my contest after the blurbs/poll:

First up is SENATOR, MINE:

Eleanor’s dream of a romantic tour of Italy shatters when her long-time boyfriend breaks up with her in Pompeii. Determined to enjoy the once in a lifetime vacation, she enlists the 1NS service. She continues her trip, stopping to buy a small golden signet in a mysterious antiquities shop in Rome.

Darius, a hard-working Senator in Ancient Rome, is puzzled by the Sibyl’s words: You will not find love in your lifetime. Hoping to find a measure of happiness, he agrees to the Sibyl’s quest. In the olive grove, he spots Eleanor, a barbarian wearing his stolen senator’s ring.

A night spent together may be just what they both need to break down the columns of time that stand between them.

Next is DRUID, MINE:

Anya’s wish for a normal date—away from the old man she is caretaker for—comes true in unexpected ways when she finds herself whisked to an ancient Irish stone circle on solstice eve.

Carrick’s decision to follow the path to become an Ovate druid has not come lightly, and he plans to spend the solstice eve in meditation unless fairies or evil spirits disrupt the circle. When a feisty girl walks right up to the fire, more than sparks fly.

They each seek healing and a connection, but the darkness of summer is short, and once the solstice sun breaks through the circle at dawn, the magic of the night will be over. Even Madame Eve can’t stop the day from rising.

And last is PHARAOH, MINE:

Kathryn Adams is a veterinarian with a cause—she risks her financial security to help local cat rescue groups. When a stray cat, black with one green eye and one blue, meows at her door one night, Kathryn’s view of rescues changes quickly.

In Ancient Egypt, the throne is passed to the firstborn son, and when the sun rises over his father’s fresh tomb, Seti will claim his crown. He doesn’t want to rule, but the only other option is death, and his half-brother is happy to oblige.

Seti and Kathryn each need fulfillment in their lives. Through the help of Madame Eve and an ancient Egyptian goddess, they find peace in each other’s arms for one night. At dawn, Bast will return to ferry them back to their responsibilities unless they can rescue each other.

The contest is easy. First, vote in the poll  (1 entry).

Welcome to the 1NS blog hop!

click the button to go to the main blog hop site!

Thanks for stopping by my site on the tour! The 1NS line is dear to me–I simply love the concept of the series and the way lots of authors can add stories to the line. I’ve read a ton of the 1NS books–and they are all awesome in their own way. You can find contemporary, science fiction, time travel, western, menage, m/m — pretty much anything you want. I still have quite a few to read, but I am certainly working my way through them.

I currently have two 1NS out: Senator, Mine and Druid, Mine. I have a third releasing this fall–Pharaoh, Mine.  ALL MINE, my sub series title, ties them together. All of them are time travel and all of them include a hot man somewhere in time. I simply love exploring ancient worlds. And hot men. All. Mine.

Just for leaving a comment, I’ll give away two copies of winner’s choice of either Senator, Mine or Druid, Mine. Please leave your email address so I can contact the winners.  Okay, and just for fun, I will also give away a $20 gift certificate to Amazon to one winner who posts an answer to this question in their response: If you had to choose a moment in history–what would be your favorite time/place to read about? Be specific! Of course, I would love for you to follow my blog, and follow me on Twitter!

Everyone who comments is also entered into the grand prize drawings:

1st place – A Kindle Touch

2nd place – a $50 Amazon.com gift certificate

3rd place – a box of Goodies from Coffee Time Romance – US ONLY (books, swag and other goodies)

Make sure you click the 1NS blog hop button at the top of this post to return to the main site and follow the hop! Lots of great authors and prizes await! If you haven’t picked up a 1NS to read yet, I urge you to give one a try.
