Set Sail!

The Yacht Club is live today. I’m so excited to have these three sexy stories together under this fabulous new cover and to be able to offer them in print for the first time. If you like a steamy romance, you definitely should hop aboard and check out The Yacht Club.

Pax quote

Excerpt from The Yacht Club – Pax’s story, Peace and Quiet:

“It’s a long story.  One I’m more than willing to share.”  He leaned in close, his face brushing along hers, to whisper in her ear.  “I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours.”  He pushed his bare arm against hers, making contact once again with the tattoo.  The picture forming in his mind had nothing to do with the exchange of information.

Pax gasped and then fixed him with a steely glare.  A second later, Tyler pushed himself away, his hands going instinctively to his groin.

“Now shortcake, that wasn’t a nice thought at all.”  He chuckled and shook his head.  She was as feisty as her red hair led you to believe.

Pax shrugged.  He should be thankful she just thought about kneeing him in the balls.

Why Magic? Why Not?

 

3D_bookstack_ereader

So I wrote the three spicy novellas of The Yacht Club and each one has what I call a hint of magic. I don’t want to give too much away about the characters, but each of my three leading ladies has a special gift (although Pax would argue about the gift part). But why magic?

So now I’m sitting here trying to answer that question and wondering why I thought a blog post about it was a good idea. The corny answer to the question would be that it was just the way the stories arrived out of the depths of my crazy imagination. Often it feels like I have no say in the matter, the characters are the ones calling the shots and this time they showed up, bringing the magic with them. A more cynical answer would be that after writing Daisy’s story and wanting the next story to tie into the same theme, I took the easy route. I needed Kimi to be able to do some physically difficult things and be able to break into a house without getting caught so I used magic as my deus ex machina.

But there is more to it than that. Let’s face it, most romance (the kind in books) is fantasy. At one time, it was all dashing heros and swooning heroines, but these days the heroines can be just as daring. Whatever the case, we read it to escape, to be entertained, and in some cases to forget, at least for a little while. So why can’t romance have magic too? Let’s face it, having the ability to read minds is just as believable as a gorgeous billionaire coming to sweep me off my feet.

I’m not saying that someone has told me romance can’t have magic, I’m just trying, perhaps badly, to tell you why The Yacht Club does. But honestly, it really is because that’s just the way the characters showed up. It started with Daisy and her magic tattoo. Then came Kimi, and as I said, she needed a little extra help to get her where I needed her to be, so why not give her the gift to open locks? Finally there was Pax. Poor Pax, she has it the worst, but she is also making the most of her bad situation because I don’t write about wimps.

I could have titled this post “Why Romance?” but I’ve explained my choice to write romance before and as to why I choose to read it, well the answer is really right there – it’s my choice. For a great article about romance and reading whatever the hell you want, check out this post by Smart Bitches Trashy Books (as you can tell by the name, there’s a bit of a language warning so if you have an issue with swearing the article might not be your thing).

From the Heart – Excerpt

“Are you all right?”  DB rose from his seat.

“I’m fine, just a muscle cramp or something.”  Daisy frowned and rubbed her hip.

“Here, come sit down a minute.”  DB took her by the elbow and led her to a chair.

“I’m fine, really.” Daisy pulled her arm from his grasp.

“Sit.” DB hadn’t meant to sound so demanding, but he found the Dom in him reacting to her sub.  He fixed her with a look that told her he expected no protest.

Daisy swallowed visibly and slowly sank into the chair, averting her eyes from his.  Her skin flushed and she felt the flutter of sexual arousal.  Damn it! No, not now!  She shouldn’t be sexually attracted to a potential client.

“Really,” Daisy’s voice wavered and she paused to clear her throat, trying to get her libido under control.  “It was just a muscle spasm.  I’m fine.”

DB knelt beside her and lifted her leg from the floor.  Daisy sucked in a breath.  He looked at the four-inch wedge on her foot and raised an eyebrow.  “It’s probably from walking around on these stilts,” he said with a wry grin.  “I don’t know how you do it all day.”

Daisy laughed nervously.  His hands felt warm on her skin.  “They’re a necessity for someone as short as I am.”  She sucked in another shocked breath as he began to massage her calf, moving his hands slowly up her leg.  He reached the edge of her skirt where it sat just above her bare knee and she gasped, pulling her leg from his grasp and setting her foot on the floor.  “Thank you.  I’m fine.”  She raised her eyes to meet his and blinked.  It took every ounce of control she had to keep her eyes on his and not look away.  She cleared her throat again and rose from her seat.  “I’ll just…”  She raised her hand and gestured towards her makeshift cooking area.  “I’ll just finish setting up.”

Damn the Man

DB quote

 

From the Heart – Excerpt

“No, sorry…that needs to go over there, by the bar area.”  Daisy pointed the delivery man in the right direction and then turned back to look over the room.  It was all coming together, for the most part anyway.

Suddenly frowning, she shook her head and called out, “Wait! Wait!” and hurried over to where another pair of workers were setting up the bar height tables.  “They need to be spread out more.  Don’t bunch them all together.  People need to have room to mingle.”  She showed them where each table should go, ensuring a nice traffic flow around the area and out to the deck.

Backing up to take in the whole room, she suddenly collided with a hard, unyielding body.  “Oh!  I’m sorry…” She turned to face the owner of the body, her hands on his chest. “Oh!  It’s you.”

DB grinned, grabbing her wrists to steady her.  “Try not to look too disappointed.”

“It’s not that, it’s just…”

“You’ve been avoiding me.”

Daisy frowned and pulled her arms away from him, backing up a step.  “I have not.  You’re a busy man and I’m a busy woman.  Our schedules just haven’t overlapped.”   That and the fact that she had tried to time any visits to the site as early in the morning as possible in the hope of avoiding an encounter just like this one.

“And the club?”  DB looked at her with raised eyebrows.  “Are you too busy for the club as well?”

“As a matter of fact,” she started to reply but stopped at the heated look in DB’s eyes.  She cleared her throat and then stood up straighter, thrusting her chin a little higher in the air.  “I’ve been very busy.  Besides, what I do in my leisure time is not something I generally discuss with clients.”

DB grinned mischievously.  “Uh huh.  You’re just chicken.”

“I’m what?” Daisy looked at him in mock outrage.

“You’re afraid to go to the club because you know I’ll be there and you can’t keep your hands off me.”

“I…I…most certainly can!”

“You had your hands all over me a second ago.”  DB grinned at her.

“I…that was different, I was just catching my balance.”  She looked at him, her cheeks burning.  Damn the man.  He was teasing her and she was letting it get to her.  She cleared her throat again…
