Sample Sunday: The Never List

Sample Sunday

I have a couple… okay three or four projects rolling around my work space right now. A sequel to Ruby’s, which is still in the planning stages; a book in editing (Interracial Erotic Romance) that will hopefully be out mid summer;  a couple of ideas brewing and a brand new story that I have been working on called The Never List (Contemporary African American Romance).

Today I want to share a little bit about this story and give my readers a little sample.

Note this project is still very much under construction and details may change as the story progresses!

There are a lot of things thirty three year old Esmee Whitaker has never done: Ridden a roller-coaster. Take a flight. Swim in the ocean. Ride in a hot air balloon. Oh… and have sex. While her well-meaning but overprotective parents are overseas, Esmee decides to break out of her shell and knock some items off of her Never List.

Anthony Pettigrew is next in line for the throne at Pettigrew Industries, but he’s not sure the CEO life is for him. He wants to spin out his own venture, but his father’s illness holds him back. With the future of Pettigrew in the balance, Anthony must decide if he should follow the path designed for him or pave his own way.

When he meets Esmee at a dinner meeting, It’s Like at First Sight for Anthony.  She’s smart, sexy… and uptight. Esmee is less than impressed with tall, handsome… and cocky Anthony. Worlds collide when the two are forced to work at opposite ends of the same project, and when Anthony learns about Esmee’s Never List, he offers to help her cross off some items– one item in particular.

One list. Ten items. When they reach Number One, will it spell The End for Esmee and Anthony… or the beginning?

Review: The Fall by John Lescroart

Review: The Fall by John Lescroart

The Fall is the latest from John Lescroart in the Hardly/Glitsky series that I’ve been reading for *mumble mumble* years– since before I had an ereader and I was going to the book store every other day to pick up the next two in the series because I ate them up like cake.

This book focuses on Hardy’s daughter Rebecca (or The Beck), who I have a hard time believing is an adult with a law degree because when I started reading this series I am pretty sure she was around eleven. Rebecca is an attorney in Hardy’s firm and has picked up a client accused of the murder of Anlya Paulson (a detail that was confusing because the name in the prologue is different but that’s okay because my copy was an ARC. I actually wish the name had stayed Tanya because Anlya was hard to pronounce in my head and she became Anya as I read).
