Weekend Writing Warriors – Hot as Blazes in a firefighter tee

WWWWeekend Writing Warriors – Hot as Blazes in a firefighter tee. I’m continuing this week with a snippet from my steamy contemporary, Hot as Blazes which released last week. For anyone who had been following the K9 story, I will return to it, but after losing our lab last weekend the pain is still too fresh.

We pick up where, pro surfer, Jo Mercer, has just returned home to the Outer Banks after a some trouble in California. Here’s last week’s if you want to catch up: Home Sweet Home.  Now on to this week’s excerpt in ten:

By the dunes sat a black H1 Hummer, chrome surf rack glittering in the afternoon sun. It displayed a firefighter license plate. Probably one of Bobby’s friends. She climbed the steps to the house, unlocked the side door, and stepped inside.

The fragrant cedar aroma drew her into a familiar bare bones décor consisting of a big screen TV, over-sized recliner, and sofa with a couple of end tables. She skimmed her fingers along the worn flagstone fireplace mantle before reaching her father’s flag. So hard to believe he was gone.

Outside, the shower door slammed. Jo secured her sunglasses and headed down the deck stairs. Broad back muscles stretched the Nags Head fire department logo on the man’s shirt as he racked his surfboard.

Hot as Blazes is available at all major

e-book retailers.

  1. Moving through a sense of time, remembrance, love and loss and then lust… Nice snippet Dani.

    And condolences, many many condolences. It’s hard to lose a loved one, furry or not.

  2. NICE description. The Hummer is probably nice to look at too, but who’s looking at it? lol

    Looking at your pics–I really need an OBX fix! I think we’re going to shoot for October 2016. Rodanthe. I hope we get to meet while my family and I are down there. 🙂


    1. October is a great time to go, Teresa! The weather is usually still temperate and the crowds are gone. Hopefully, in the near future, there’s going to be a new bridge over Oregon Inlet to the southern Banx.


      1. Oh yeah, I hadn’t thought about that Oregon Inlet bridge since we got home. It was sort of a patchwork affair. But it got the job done. We got across it. This last trip, we took a sunset kayak tour on the sound side. I think we met the guides near the bridge. We hit it rich. The sky lit up in the most vibrant oranges and reds I’ve ever seen in a sunset. 🙂
