Weekend Writing Warriors – Hot as Blazes: Needing a Change of Luck

WWWOn this week’s Weekend Writing Warriors, I’m continuing this week with a snippet from my newest release Hot as Blazes.

After some trouble in California, Jo Mercer’s pro surfing career has tanked. She has just arrived home at the oceanfront beach house where she grew up. Ray, her brother’s best friend, and her secret crush has returned from surfing and is racking his board. Last week we ended with: She poked the firefighter seal over his rock hard pectoral. “So what’s this?”

“I thought Bobby told you?” He smiled lazily, running a hand over his close-cropped hair. “Couldn’t play lifeguard forever.”

She might be if her luck didn’t change. Nobody had told her Ray became a firefighter. Guess he didn’t want to worry her after he made it back from Iraq. The same reason she didn’t tell him about her trouble in California. “Awesome, Cappy would have been so proud.”

At her father’s nickname, hurt flashed over his handsome face. He flipped her sunglasses to the top of her head. “I was beginning to think I’d never see you again.”

“Me too.” She avoided his gaze as tears welled.

Independence Day: A Day to be Thankful

IMG_2224Happy Fourth of July! America’s Independence Day is a day to be thankful for the freedoms we enjoy living in the United States of America.

Flag with dogtags (bigstock 4969016)Freedom came with a price and we continue to pay every day. It’s easy take the benefits for granted and forget the reality of the cost. Had America not had so many willing to give their all for this country, there might not be an Independence Day to celebrate.

Between the fireworks, hot dogs and hamburgers take a minute to reflect on the real meaning of the holiday. “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what can you do for your country.” John F. Kennedy
