Guest Virginia Cavanaugh - Seductive Reunion

Please welcome guest author Virginia Cavanaugh to my blog. Her book Seductive Reunion is now available from Ellora's Cave.

Thanks, Ann Cory, for allowing me to take up space on your blog today.

I stopped by today to share a little bit about my new Ellora’s Cave release, Seductive Reunion.


It should have been a simple evening. Go to the high school reunion. Have a couple of drinks. Share a few laughs. Easy peasy. Until Special Agent John Clayton walks in and turns Andi Morgan’s life upside down.

He makes her want things…deliciously wicked things. But Andi’s past complicates matters. Her ex-husband, and local Senator’s son, Steve Hidel, is in deep shit with the Havenk brothers, a shady pair of gunrunners and they all want something only Andi can give them. Will Andi be able to trust the safety she finds in John’s arms, or could he possibly have ulterior motives of his own?

Buy Seductive Reunion Here

So how do you feel about high school reunions? Love them, hate them? Let me know below for a chance to win a copy of my paranormal novella Secrets of Night. One lucky winner will be drawn on the 9th for an electronic copy.

Good luck.

Best wishes,
Virginia Cavanaugh

Healing Hartley - Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!

The following six sentences are from my menage book Healing Hartley

A woman would be a fool to find fault with being sandwiched between two very giving and doting lovers.

Hartley rested her head comfortably on the pillow and stared at the ceiling, willing them to wake up. With their hands on her body, she couldn't think straight, and she had a big day planned. They'd somehow, unknowingly, charged her very core with electricity and made her want sex like she would die if she didn't have it soon. Impatience gnawed at her. For now, she'd have to wait, captive between the two men who'd taught her how to unleash her inner witch, reclaim her natural gifts and restore her trust in love.

Healing Hartley is available from Amazon

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

Uncovering Egypt - Sweet Saturday Sample

Today I'm taking part in Sweet Saturday Samples. This sample comes from my book Uncovering Egypt

From her pocket, she took out a small pen flashlight and shone it inside the open space.

The object sparkled like a beautiful jewel. Unable to control herself, she reached inside and felt around until she grasped it. Fist tight, she made sure the object didn't get scratched as she pulled it out. Breath held, she uncurled her fingers. In her hands lay a beautiful bracelet made entirely of peridots. She'd read about the precious gemstones in Egyptian art books. They were also called chrysolites, and were considered the gems of the sun. Legend claimed they held the ability to clean and heal the heart.

Jasmine turned the bracelet with a delicate hand, in awe of its divine beauty. Against the paleness of her skin, she could fully appreciate its velvety appearance. It looked like something fit for a princess, or maybe even a queen. On her menial paychecks, she'd never be able to afford anything as extravagant.

With an envious sigh, she shone the flashlight back inside the wall for a final check, when the bracelet slid from her fingers and wrapped around her wrist.

What the? She blinked and brought her wrist up to her face. How in the hell did it fasten by itself? This wouldn't look good at all if she couldn't remove it. She didn't even know how it affixed itself on her in the first place, but who would believe that as an excuse? Sweat beaded on her brow and upper lip. In the soft light of the lantern, she tried to locate a catch of some sort.

Unable to find one, Jasmine gave the bracelet a cautious tug. Any harder and she risked damaging it. A whimper escaped her lips. Gods, she was in big trouble.

Footsteps shuffled behind her and she groaned inward, knowing it was Mason at the ready with one of his "I told you so" speeches. Yeah, he'd really get a kick out of this.

She turned with her wrist concealed behind her back, when all the breath left her lungs.

Uncovering Egypt is available at Amazon.

Enjoy your Saturday!

Motivational May

It's Monday and the first May Write Motivation check-in day!

I've kept my May Write Motivation goals short but sweet this month because so much of my time now is spent at the community college where I'm taking classes. I'm actually considering going beyond getting the certificate and possibly going for an Associate Degree, but I'm stil debating. Anyhow, going back to school has definitely reduced my writing time, so I have to work harder at the time management, and making smart, doable goals.

My May Goals:
1. Finish WIP#1 which is more than half done.
2. Finish WIP#2 which is exactly half done.
3. Blog 3 to 4 times a week.
4. Sub a short story.

There are all sorts of stories that I want to write - but I'm trying to keep a good, solid focus on finishing what I've started. That means getting the two WIPs completed, critiqued, edited, and submitted. My reward when that happens will be to work on one thing I want to work on - regardless of what it is.

If you're looking for an extra boost by a group of fantastic and super motivating people, then I highly recommend joining Write Motivation. You can also follow along on Twitter at #writemotivation. There are also plenty of cookies, homemade nibbles, teas and coffee - and you know, something stronger on those days you really it, and confetti!

Whether you join or not, I hope your May is full of inspiration, creativity, and productivity.
