Hot Guy #1

I am thrilled to be relaunching my blog with the Rock*It Reads blog hop. Readers, you have LOTS of ways to win, both the grand prize and prizes from author pages.  The more pages you comment on, the greater your chances of winning.

Lately I’ve been working hard on SOUL KISSED, book two in my Shadow Kissed series. Even when I’m not writing, I can be found staring off into space imagining what’s coming in the next scenes. If I have a goofy smile on my face, it’s probably HOT.

Today I’m spotlighting book one, FIRE KISSED, which released in September. If you’re looking for a HOT read this holiday season, this one is full of fire. Literally. The hero is Jack Bastian, an angel who has to contend with Kaye Brand, a mage woman who has fire in her blood.

Here’s a sneak peek at the sparks between them:

Excerpt from Fire Kissed

Fire Kissed cover

The house was dark. He slammed the door behind him.

She flipped on the entrance hall light. Took off her coat. Put it over her arm. Regal. Her act. Liar. Couldn’t believe a thing the woman did or said.

Her mouth was moving. “…suspend meeting with clients…”

But the sounds were warped. The tilt of her face shifted slightly this way. And slightly that. Her tongue artfully shaping sounds that made no sense.

“…can’t very well continue when…”

She tucked a curl behind her ear.


“…for a little while…”



Hot Guy #2

“…not when Ferro…”

And then Jack was kissing her. Because she couldn’t say that name again, not one more time tonight, or tomorrow, or ever again, in his presence. He had to kiss all knowledge of it out of her and leave nothing but himself behind. He was a moth to her flame and he didn’t care.

His hands gripped her upper arms, but when she opened her mouth under his, her body saying yes, he made a grab for all of her. Hauled her up against the wall.

He trapped her there, his hand at her breast, his tongue rasping against hers, wild and wet. A bolt of lightning heat went through him, as if God struck, but Jack held on to Kaye and for once refused to care. His groin beat dark and needy, while he gripped the fabric of her dress and ripped because he couldn’t begin to think about zippers or buttons.

He felt a flutter of movement at his waist. Her bare hands found the skin at his navel. And he made an inhuman sound of longing.

She pulled out of the kiss to shhhh him, comforting, while she stroked and peeled off clothes to get them closer. Coat. Suit jacket. A tug and yank at his shirt.

“I’m here. I’m yours,” she said, answering the need he couldn’t have put into words if he’d tried.

  1. Gonna have to say #2 – Just something about him nabs me. And he’s not overly muscled like the other two. Though I wish they had a bit more hair…

  2. It was a tought choice between hot guy#1 and #3. Hot guy#2 was out because of the pants. That might be crazy, but slacks vs. jeans? Jeans win. So, how to decide between #1 and #3….hmmmm…I love a man with chest hair…but I do not like “trimmed” chest hair. That leaves me with hot guy#1. I’ll take him…ok, who am I kidding? I’d take all of them.

  3. Wait, I have to pick one? Seriously? Can’t I just have all three? 🙂
    No? Well, in that case I’ll go with #1… it’s all about those obliques & deltoids!

  4. tough choice, I really had to study the options very carefully (thank you 😉 for that oppertunity) but believe #3 wins after long dilibiration. ….. hmm, let me double check the possibilities again …. yea, #3 wins 😉 thanks for the giveaway

  5. I would definitely have to choose Hot Guy #3. He looks like he is laid back and open to whatever discussion may arise. Yummy!

    Thanks for the fun giveaway. You are making your readers very happy! 🙂

  7. Wow, tough choice. I’m going to have to go with Hot Guy #3, I don’t know why because they’re all hot but he just catches my attention a little more. I’ve never read any of your books but that excerpt you posted just got me interested!


  8. Hot guy #1 for me. He looks like the actor Neil Jackson 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway!


  9. Hot Guy #2!! He’s so hot I think something caught fire – my burning loins!! Haha!

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway 😉 tess_halim(at)hotmail(dot)com

  10. Um…that is a hard decision! 😉
    Can I choose #2’s face and #3’s body? No? Okay, then I choose #3!!

  11. I have been blog hopping and see so much skin I can’t remember where I have been. I guess if you can’t take the heat get out of the blog.
