“Hello?”

A rich tenor that I hoped wasn’t attached to someone standing inside my place called into the house. I glanced at Ebony, eyes wide. She bounded out of the alcove.

“Eb! Wait—” I wanted to grab her, in case it was a serial killer who haunted small towns and kidnapped cute black girls.

“Hey. We’re back here.” Brilliant, Eb. Tell him exactly where to find us, chop us up and bury us in the backyard. “Who’s there?”

Footsteps sounded on the tile just inside the door. “Hi. I’m here for Evonne.”

I followed her around the corner. “Way to tell a stranger exactly where we are, Ebony. You know that’s how that girl got murdered on last week’s episode of The Butler Did It.”

My eyes sought out anything I could use for a weapon, if I needed it. But then I realized that I wouldn’t. Need a weapon, that was.

Because I knew the man standing in my kitchen. I could never forget those soulful eyes, gorgeous dark skin, full lips… and the blue scrubs that seemed cut to fit him specifically, the way they stretched across his chest and cradled his arms in such a nice way. Read More

“There was nothing he could do for me…” – #SundaySnip

“There was nothing he could do for me…” –   #SundaySnip

I swept my clothes from the chair and heard a heavy thunk as something fell to the floor. I picked up my phone and pressed the button to wake it up. I’d put it on silent when I left the house the day before. The only person that could break through was my mother, but we’d already talked and I didn’t expect to hear from her.So seeing that she had sent me a text made my heart skip a beat. I hadn’t heard it because I’d left it in the living room.

He came by here earlier.

Excerpt – Beach Thing (published 2016) #beachyblackromance #beachreads

Thoughts of beach trips guide me, of course, to my ODE TO SUMMER, my #beachyblackromance BEACH THING, borne out of a want to write a sweet, steamy, romantic vacationship that also has a little bit of personal drama for both characters that help give the story some depth.  Wade and Ameenah are definite #goals– upwardly mobile African Americans who are both making a mark on society in their own way. Bringing them together was fun, a pure pleasure.

*BLITZ* Love Grind by Shelly Ellis

I don’t know if it’s fair to say, because I loved the previous books in this series as well, but I feel like author Shelly Ellis saved the best for last. All three heroines left a life behind to work at MacLaine Dance Academy to try to save the place from being shut down. Bina, Monique and now Jennifer find themselves in a place they’d always called home.



Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Alright, that’s enough of that. *HAH* Seriously, I am wishing as joyous a year possible for you and all those you call your loved ones! I won’t make this a long post, but since it is a first brand new day of a brand new month of a brand new year, I should bring myself to this blog and say hey and talk about 2019 a little.  I am not one to make long drawn out goals. I don’t do resolutions (a few years ago I did anti resolutions, things I was going to stop doing. I liked that, might bring it back at some point!), and you won’t see […]

*~* NEW RELEASE!*~* SECOND TIME AROUND, A POTTER LAKE HOLIDAY SHORT

Second Time Around turned out to be exactly what I wanted. A lot of sweet romance, a little bit of heat, and characters that aren’t “rock the runway” gorgeous or “male model” fine… though I do love me a good lookin’ character. I longed to write about regular degular schmegular people… and I felt like that could happen in no other place but Potter Lake.
