Romance Weekly – Flash Fiction Spooky

RomanceWeeklyIf you arrived here via Mikki Cober you know it’s Halloween Flash Fiction week for the Romance Writers Weekly crew! This week we celebrate All Hallows Eve with spooky tales of 300 words or less. Mine is a spin off from my story, White Doe, and comes in at 299 words.

Eva glimpsed at her pirate wench’s image in the bar mirror as she loaded drinks onto her tray. She’d taken great pains to create a sexy costume for Halloween. The Raven was already crowded as she headed to a group of tables by the surfside windows.

By right of occupation they belonged to the Pirate’s bike gang. Menacing tattoos, midnight races on the beach road and rumors of being shapeshifters gave the Outer Banks MC their reputation.

“Nice costume,” Cheyenne said, looking lovely as a Native American princess, and wife to, Shane, who gave her a slight wink with those mysterious golden eyes.

“Thanks.” Her gaze wandered in search of Shiloh.

“He’ll be here later,” Shane offered. “He had a late delivery at the marina.”

More members arrived dressed in their cuts, sporting a skull and crossbones with eye patch. After fetching another round for the bikers, she stepped outside for some air. A cool breeze kissed her heated cheeks as she climbed over the dune. The inky black Atlantic kissed the star studded sky while a crescent moon hung halfway to zenith.

A sensation of being watched forced her to turn toward the dunes. Luminescent yet sensual eyes glowed in the distance. Intrigued, she remained still as the green orbs grew near. A quick flash of headlights cast beams against their owner. A red wolf vanished into the dark.

With a sigh of regret, she returned inside. As she retrieved her drink order, the hairs at the back of her neck prickled.

“How about one for me, sweetheart?” His southern drawl skittered along her skin like a caress. If sex had a tone, Shiloh held perfect pitch.

His tousled auburn hair framed his enchanting jade eyes…the same eyes…as the red wolf.

Dear God, she’d fallen for a shifter!

Hope you enjoyed Eva’s revelation and will hop on over to Jo Richardson‘s spooky tale.

 

Game On! Anticipation #8Sunday #flashfiction

Game On! is a short story I’m serving up on Weekend Writing Warriors for #8Sunday. Heath is a semi-pro football player in town for the season when he meets Jordan, a teacher with obvious trust issues, who proposes a sexual game. In this week’s snippet, Jordan heads home after packing her classroom, done with the last day of school.

Jordan finished loading stuff from her classroom into her car and drove to her mom and dad’s, having giving up her apartment while still paying off lawyer’s fees.

“Let me help you,” her dad said stepping out the front door as she started unloading.

“I’ve got it, dad.”

His protective and giving nature demanded he help her until every box sat stacked in her room over the garage.

“Are you going out tonight?” he asked, aware of the usual schools out party her teacher friends held each year.

Having watched her be cross examined, exposing her whole life for the public’s eye was one of the most painful moments in her father’s life as well as hers.

“I’m meeting a friend for dinner,” she answered trying not to reveal her excitement at seeing the football god that lured her to be naughty.

Happiness filled his eyes. “Glad you’ve started to get out again, hon.”

Tune in new week for more. Now it time to check out other Weekend Writing Warriors‘ blogs.

Flash Fiction – Love Letter

RomanceWeeklyIf you arrived here via Carolyn Spear you know it’s Flash Fiction week for the Romance Writers Weekly crew! If not, hope you’ll returned to see her post. Today’s topic is love letters. The letter must contain the words, brush, pumpkin and sweet and be four hundred words or less.

LletterLetters have become a lost art. I still have the one my husband wrote to me when he had to leave for training right after we’d met. This love letter is fiction, but hope you enjoy…

 Hi Baby,
It feels like an eternity since I’ve held you.Hope you and everyone at home are doing good. I miss our video chats on the computer, but in the mountains, signal is spotty at best and only available to contact our FOB. You said once that I never wrote you a “real letter,” so here you go.
Thanks for the care package! The guys and I appreciate the, mega bag of chocolate, dip packets and cigarettes. Occasionally, I’ll even have a smoke for some extra energy at the end of a long patrol. Don’t worry, I won’t get hooked. It’s the small things that keep me going and the ever constant desire to return home to you.
Brutus loves his new brush. He’s currently sleeping at my feet after a combing. It’s already freezing at night and he’s a warm bed mate. Hope you’ll get to meet the big guy when we get back to the States. Sure would like to adopt him when his service time is done.
We had our Thanksgiving turkey MRE last night, but I’m sure the pumpkin crunch cake smells sweet in the oven about now. A slice with some coffee would be heaven.
Being with you would be more heavenly. Life with a gun, a dog, and brothers in arms forces a guy to think. Brings things down to essentials. You are one of mine. I now realize one of yours.
Throw the pills in the trash cuz as soon as I’m back, I promise you’ll be horizontal for days and hopefully plump with my baby a few months later. I love you more and anything and promise I’ll be home as soon as I can.
Love you,
J

Hop on over to Fiona Riplee for another love letter.

Newsworthy

I received my first fan letter last week! So of course, Icheer anxiously replied to Selina, only to have “demon mail” thwart my effort.

Thanks for writing, Selina! And for posting a review on White Doe. A verified purchase BTW and 5*s! Since my new BFF had a couple of questions and I couldn’t reply to her e-mail, I’ll answer in a post.

bigstockimage46781775Do I have other books?  Yes! I’m waiting for edits from Lyrical on my contemporary beach read, Hot as Blazes, and hoping for a spring or summer release in 2015. I’ve also completed a military romance on which they have first option. Currently, I’m finishing, Game On!, an erotic novella about a semi-pro football player and a emotionally scarred teacher. With the help of my critique group, I’m considering self-pubbing this one.

What about a newsletter? Nothing official yet, however, I’m actively blogging with the Weekend Writing Warriors crowd for Eight Sentence Sunday and on a blog hop with Romance Writers Weekly. Both offer a weekly glimpse into my current works or a dash of new flash fiction.

cocky confessions_tealI also host book a spotlight in the form of a hero interview entitled, Cocky Confessions. Delving into heroes’ secrets is eyeopening and sometimes they confess secrets not revealed in their books.

Then there’s Banx Bound, a series highlighting places to seebanxboundblog and things to do on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My home away from home inspires many of my stories and I love sharing about the historical and sometimes mysterious barrier islands. Not only is OBX the birthplace to aviation, the Outer Banks is home to the Lost Colony and notorious pirate, Black Beard.

So thanks for the review and the fan mail, Selina.  Hope other followers will keep in touch or drop me a line.

WhiteDoe_EbookCover_600X900It’s shifter season with Halloween coming, so if you haven’t checked out White Doe, hope you’ll give my erotic short a lick…ahh I meant like ;)

Game On! Prime Beef #8Sunday #flashfiction

Game On! is a short story I’m serving up on Weekend Writing Warriors for #8Sunday. Heath is a semi-pro football player in town for the season when he meets Jordan, a teacher with obvious trust issues, who proposes a sexual game. In this week’s snippet, Jordan is packing up her classroom at the end of the year while talking to her friend, GiGi, who’s on a fashion business trip. She’s just informed GiGi that she’s found out the two guys they met on the beach are semi-pro football players for the area’s new team.

“Your guy’s a middle linebacker, so it’s no wonder he’s meat on the hoof,” Jordan shot back after GiGi’s explenative.

“And between those massive thighs, too,” her friend said before moaning.

How many dates to reach that particular body part of Heath? Warmth built in Jordan’s lower stomach and migrated south, before asking “You hooking up with Dugan when you get back?”

“Absolutely, ain’t done ridin that bull yet, however, I want to know about you and Mr. Dreamy Blue Eyes?”

She’d noticed those stunning peepers in spite of the meat man. “I offered to be his local tour guide, no strings attached.”

“Good girl, heard he’s coming off an evil woman and only out for fun.”

So body parts it would be. ;) Tune in new week for more. Now it time to check out other Weekend Writing Warriors‘ blogs.

Banx Bound: Bodie Island Lighthouse

banxboundblog      Banx Bound is a blog series about my favorite vacation spot, the Outer Banks of North Carolina, affectionately known as OBX. It’s really more like my home away from home and inspiration to many of my stories. Bodie Island Lighthouse is destination to this edition of Banx Bound.

Bodie Island Lighthouse
Bodie Island Lighthouse

Bodie Island Lighthouse is located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina off of Route 12, south, near Oregon Inlet. You may have visited the lighthouse and grounds during your previous trips, but this spring you will be able to climb 156 feet to the top of the black and white horizontal striped tower.

For history buffs, this is the third lighthouse named Bodie.  Two previous lighthouses were built south of Oregon Inlet. The first tower built in the mid 1800’s fell to poor design and the second was destroyed during the Civil War. The current tower was completed in 1872 and automated in 1954.  Bodie’s light can be seen for almost twenty miles.

In my lifetime of visiting the Outer Banks, Bodie Island Lighthouse was never open to climb. However in spring of 2013 after several years of interrupted restoration because of funding, it was finally open tours. You can now see an amazing view of Oregon Inlet and south Nags Head. http://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/lighthouseclimbs.htm

Game On! Free to Play #8Sunday #flashfiction

Game On! is a short story I’m serving up on Weekend Writing Warriors for #8Sunday. Heath is a semi-pro football player in town for the season when he meets Jordan, a teacher with obvious trust issues. When she proposes a sexual game, curiosity gets the best of him and he discovers the past she’s hiding from.

After lunch with more than food for thought, Heath drove to nearby Little Island public beach where he’d first met Jordan. The multitude of vehicles surprised him for a weekday. Several teens unhitched their surfboards as he passed. “No school today?”

“Last day, early release, dude,” one shouted.

He found a quiet spot and planted his chair. Before long the noise of the beachgoers blended into the lulling surf while thoughts of Jordan filled his twilight sleep. Hopefully, with the school year finished, his hottie teacher would be free to begin playing their little game.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s flash fiction for Game On! For more fun check out other Weekend Writing Warriors‘ blogs.

I loved the theme of the book. The lovers coming together after being separated for so long and having their love endure for ten years then growing stronger was awesome. Accepting who and what they are is a perfect example of how everyone should treat themselves and one another.
