Hot as Blazes: At the Station

WWWHot as Blazes: At the Station. On 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 and runs into her brother’s best friend – her secret crush. Ray is blown away by her unannounced return, but couldn’t be happier. In last week’s snippet, Rays just left their by chance reunion on his way to a partial shift at the fire station.

He’d fallen in love with her years ago. She never had a clue, but with her talent for surfing, she was bound for bigger things than him.

He wound the Hummer into Station Twenty-One’s lot at the south end of the beach, a newer facility than his home station. He’d worked a few swing shifts with each of their rotating crews. Beyond the high-adrenaline nature of the job, the brotherhood and camaraderie filled a void in his life. Ray swung through the kitchen door where the crew had gathered for lunch.

“That’s quite a grin you’re sporting,” the captain said. “You rarely see
a happy expression on anyone coming in on his day off.”

“Must’ve got laid,” another firefighter teased, “looks like he just
showered.

Weekend Writing Warriors – Hot as Blazes: Revelations

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 and runs into her brother’s best friend, and her secret crush. Ray’s unexpected romantic gestures knock her off kilter. She’s also scared to reveal the real reason she’s returned home. Last week we ended with them agreeing to catch up over some beers.

As his beastly SUV disappeared from the driveway, her heart finally slowed to a normal rhythm. He never knew how much she’d loved him during high school nor would he ever. Besides, how would he feel when he learned the truth as to why she’d been kicked off the surfing team?

She slipped her cell from her pocket and dialed a California number.

“Santa Cruz probation office,” a receptionist answered.

His all-terrain tires hummed against the pavement as Ray navigated the beach road on autopilot, his brain playing catch-up. The mad tattoo in his chest subsided as he replayed the last few minutes. She was home. Lost in eyes the shade of his favorite scotch, he’d used all his strength to turn and leave.
