Hot as Blazes: Wet T-shirt on Weekend Warriors

wewriwa_square_1This week on Weekend Warriors, I’m taking an excerpt from my novel, Hot as Blazes.

Jo has recently returned home to the Outer Banks of NC and learned her brother’s best friend and her her high school fantasy is a firefighter. Of course she’d be behind the car who snags a cyclist and then takes out a fire hydrant. Ray arrives on scene with the crew and offers his bunker coat as she is soaked to the bone.

Before returning home, she hadn’t thought of sex in months. Now
every time he was near, her body tightened with desire.

“Come on. I’ll get your truck off the bike.” His hulky form slid behind
the wheel.

The sound of her Bronco mangling the rest of the bike beneath its
rear wheels set Jo’s teeth on edge.

Ray hopped from her truck and held the driver’s door open.

She shrugged off his coat and immediately missed his essence. “Thanks again.”

His gaze wandered to her chest. “Didn’t want everyone to see you
could win a wet T-shirt contest, Dahlin’.”

A Twitter Book Pitch: Daunting or Fun?

RomanceWeeklyRomance Writer Weekly authors are sharing a Twitter pitch for most their most recent releases or work in process.  Daunting or Fun?

Readers probably aren’t aware, but authors “sell” their book or idea for a novel to a publisher, editor or agent using a sentence or two. It’s kinda like the descriptions you see about a movie on the cable guide screen.

For me, writing a pitch is akin to having a root canal. Nerve wracking and you never know if it will be a success. What one person might love, another will give you a blank stare. Here it goes for my most recent release, Hot as Blazes.
