Sam’s Sunday Snippets – Apocalyptic Mojo


He’s a man who likes control.  She’s a woman who’ll never give it.

The Epoch Mages and the Sorceri Bounty Hunters are ALWAYS on opposite sides of any issue. They H-A-T-E each other. But when a rogue witch decides to take over the world using flesh-eating zombies, Ardith and Draigh have to work together to stop her. And though they’ve twisted themselves inside out trying to deny their blistering desire for each other, they soon learn they’ll need to work together to accomplish what many before them have failed to do. Yep, it’s all gonna be uphill from there!

They climbed the sparkling white stairs to the council building, which masqueraded as the Salem Social Club. Despite its name, the club was not open to the general public.

Blackthorne said nothing as they entered the cool, dimly lit foyer, crossed the marble floor and climbed a wide, sweeping staircase to the second level, where the council sat during formal meetings. The chamber was mostly empty at the moment, but as they pushed through the heavy wood doors Ardith quickly realized it wasn’t nearly empty enough.

Sirius’ hair stood on end, his silver eyes sparking as his massive body trembled with barely restrained fury. Ardith placed her hand on his back, between his shoulder blades, to stay him just until she figured out if he had reason to attack.

Ten feet away, standing with feet spread wide, massive arms crossed over his chest, the devil himself glared at her with an ice-blue gaze. Draigh Piers, Sorceri level five and massive thorn in her side, radiated hostility like waves of poisonous magic. “What is she doing here?”

Ardith went rigid. How dare he? “What am I doing here? The sheer size of your balls is only matched by the blackness of your soul, evil sorceri. I belong here. You, on the other hand, are a massive tumor on the backside of this building.”

Reacting to her anger, Sirius snapped his jaws, flinging spittle in a wide arc.

Ardith turned to Blackthorne. “Just say the word and Sirius and I will take care of this…growth…for you.”

Draigh’s arms dropped, his huge hands fisting over the set of deadly knives sheathed against his hip bones. “Try, witch. I welcome the exercise.”

New Release! An Apocalyptic Need hits Cyber Shelves Today!


She might be the enemy. He might have to take her down. But all he really wants to do is make slow, sweet love to her.

Grimm Forbes has been captured by sexy spaceship Captain Cari Pascale and turned into her sex vassal. But, as alliances conspire to take down his old friends at the Authority, Grimm worries that the woman who ignites his sexual fantasies might be at the epicenter of the treachery. It’s possible he’ll have to make a choice between his friends and the woman he wants in his bed. He only prays he has the strength to make the right decision, because the consequences of making the wrong one will be apocalyptic.


Grimm tossed and turned on the too-soft bed. His body was hot, hard and ached with unfulfilled lust. He’d managed to doze a few times throughout the long, long night, but each time he’d been flung awake when Captain Cari Pascale entered his dreams, soft and sexy and lushly naked.

In his dreams he’d tasted her sweet flesh, spread her luscious thighs, and kissed his way over the soft, rounded contours of her body. But each time, before he could plunge deep within her willing flesh, his traitorous body had surged awake.

Denying him over and over again.

Grimm turned his head and found her, a small rise along the floor beside her bed. Her long, blond tresses glowed brightly, a brilliant star in the near dark. He’d already figured out how to open his cell door. But she was a light sleeper and he wasn’t sure he could get to her before she woke. The element of surprise was important. Or he’d find himself facing her oxygen blaster.

Seduction didn’t work as well when firepower was involved.

A soft sound brought Grimm’s gaze snapping around. For a moment he thought he’d imagined it, but then the door to Cari’s quarters slid open on a breath of air. His fingers closed around the knife he’d stolen from his guard earlier that day, certain that whoever entered was up to no good.

A tall figure slipped through the door, stepping into the shadows as it slid closed again. Grimm squinted into the dark, trying to see the intruder. The narrow light bands arrayed along the floor illuminated a large pair of black boots and the glint of something long and metal in a gloved hand.

A blade! Cari!

The attacker could kill her before she even knew she was in danger. Alarm flared and Grimm tensed, ready to leap up and distract the intruder long enough for Cari to arm herself. He very slowly pulled the blankets away from his legs so he wouldn’t get tangled in them when he lunged.

The figure across the room shifted, his hand with the knife coming up as he took a step.

Grimm braced himself against the frame of the narrow bed, ready to leap.

But the figure with the knife didn’t move toward Cari. He started toward Grimm.

Grimm expelled a soft breath, loosening his bunched muscles as he relaxed back into the bed. The intruder was there for him.

That was good. He was ready.

The Christmas Wonder Hop – HoHo Honeybun!

Christmas Wonder

Celebrate the Wonder of the Season! Visit all of the blogs to see what they love most about the season and which books have made their Christmas wish lists! There’s a giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all!


Have you ever tried making your own Christmas gifts? Not a chance, you exclaim? You’re not a “crafty” person you argue? Forgetaboutit…you shout! You’re much too short on time and ideas to even consider it, you lament. I was once like you, thinking that what I didn’t need was one more thing to do at Christmas. But then I decided, in an attempt to return to the spirit of the holiday, to ask my Christmas guests to all make their own contributions to the gift exchange. I’m sure I heard a few groans in the house on the heels of that request. I didn’t really blame them. But most if not all of my family members have since gotten into the spirit of the thing and we all really look forward to our yearly exchanges now, as well as the fun of seeing what crafty type things we’ve each gotten up to.

In the same spirit of the holidays, I’m ready to infect you with the practice. Yeah, I’m helpful like that. It’s just how I roll. You can thank me later.  

Here a just a few easy homemade gift ideas. If you think about it, I’m sure you could come up with tons more:

  • Get a Ball jar with a screw on lid and fill it with the assorted makings of great hot chocolate: the hot chocolate mix, peppermint sticks, mini marshmallows, a mini bottle of Schnapps or Baileys…you’re only limited by your imagination. Tie it all up with a bow and put into a pretty Christmas gift bag. Viola! Great gift for somebody.
  • Get another Ball jar and buy some scented candle wax in a craft store and a wick. Situate the wick in your jar and melt your wax in the microwave. Pour the wax into the jar and trim the wick once it sets. If you want to get tricky you can spray the inside of the jar with spray adhesive before you add the wax and coat it with sparkles. Very pretty. Wrap and give. I promise the recipient will LOVE it and think you’re a genius.
  • Buy plain coffee mugs in an extra large size (just because those are cool!) Buy chalkboard paint and a stencil (or cut your own stencil) that leaves a large enough space to write on. Tape the stencil on the cup and paint over it with chalkboard paint. Let dry and remove the stencil. Then write something clever on each mug with a stick of chalk and wrap the mug and the chalk in a pretty bag. If your family is like mine, when we get together we always forget whose mugs are whose and it can get a little squiggy. Mugs with names on them come in VERY handy!
  • Buy a pretty bowl and an assortment of pretty ornaments and settle them all into the bowl on top of some moss or a few bows of evergreen (fresh or fake) and add some red berries. Done.

For tons of other great ideas type the word CHRISTMAS into the Search bar on Pinterest and you’ll get more ideas than you can possibly ever use.

Whatever holiday you celebrate…whatever your traditions, old or new…I hope you and yours have a safe, wonderful, and love-filled holiday season.   


For a chance at a copy of my new Christmas release, HoHo Honeybun, comment below and tell me your favorite Holiday movie OR share an easy to make gift idea. Make sure you leave your EMAIL or I won’t be able to add you to the drawing. I’ll choose a winner the day after the hop ends and post the winner here. Thanks so much for stopping by!
