Dallon: A Simple Need Story
What started out as a pretty typical day, quickly spiraled when Dallon saw her. Buttoned up, full of curves, with a voice smooth as honey and eyes so innocent the flames of Hell warned him to keep on moving.
But then she walked into his bar, out of place and full of determination, and asked him to teach her all the things a downy, pure girl like her didn’t need to know.
What’s a guy like him supposed to do when temptation herself exits the Heavenly Highway straight onto Sin Street? He does the only thing he can do …
Warning: What’s done with a beer bottle in this little story may be illegal in forty-eight out of fifty states…and at least two territories. But they won’t tell, if you don’t.
Author’s Note: This novella was previously published by Ellora’s Cave Publishing, Inc. It has been lightly revised and edited from it’s original version.
I love this readathon and one of these weeks I’m going to not have a release scheduled, I’m going to not have my computer crash and have to reinstall Windows and every program under the sun, and I’m going to not have a bazillion other things get in the way of what the goal is…Reading.
Better planning is the key and I shall do so for future Bout of Books readathons.
But, I did finish 2 books and I did find some others that I plan on reading and have 1 started.
Overall, I learned things, made new connections on Twitter, and really enjoy the reading community that readathons provide. We don’t all read the same books or the same genres, but we all do read and have a love of the written word and that is what it’s all about.
Vinter: A Simple Need Story
Available as an ebook:
Vinter is not your typical businessman. Tattoos, piercings and not a suit and tie in sight. One-third owner of a bar and a tattoo parlor along with being the bassist in a garage band, Vinter comes and goes as he pleases. He likes his beer cold, his music hard and his women scorching hot. Until he’s knocked off his game by a suburban doll he can’t stop wanting.
Elise needs a change. In men. The buttoned-up businessmen she’s been dating leave a lot to be desired—in romance, in respect and most definitely in sex. A recent text message from her now ex-lover drives Elise into a bar on the outside of town, where she meets Tattoo Guy. He’s just the kind of man she’s never had and definitely the kind she’s always fantasized about. Big, bad and oh so naughty.
Unexpected tenderness. Unimaginable lust. Being dumped has never felt so damn good.
*Vinter was previously published as Simple Need with Ellora’s Cave Publishing, Inc.
So, #boutofbooks started today (at midnight) and I’ve done some reading. I have had a stack of books to choose from that I’ve been collecting for just this week. I won’t get all of them read, but I’ll get a few of them finished.
This is what I’m reading:
You are a Badass by Jen Sincero (I started this last year, but I’m determined to finish it this week)
The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George
Did you join Bout of Books? Have you ever participated in a readathon? If I organized one, would you participate?
The other part of my post title… About Getting My Write On? Yeah, I’ve been doing that, too. I have started Mac, Simple Need, book 4. Vinter will re-release later this week, with the other Simple Need books coming out every 3 weeks until Mac is finished and released!
I’ll have a cover for you soon!
Have a great week and stay warm!
I started to add some text to the image above, but it’s too beautiful to touch. It’s bright and it’s crisp and it’s new and it’s open. It’s open to all the wonders we can imagine.
Happy 2018, Y’all!
It’s bitterly cold here in the south and while I don’t usually mind cold, we southerners aren’t built for this kind of cold. We have thin blood. We can handle heat and humidity better than most. But this cold stuff? 11 degrees? Nope.
As I write this, though, it’s cloudy and I have two cats in the office with me. Two more out on the couch. One upstairs. And one in a cat tree in my old office. What I don’t have with me is a cup of coffee which will be rectified momentarily.
There is no purpose to this message other than a HELLO! And a wish for you, whoever you are, to have a wondrous 2018.
And you know what? I believe that will be my word for the year… Wondrous! Do you have a word for the year?
In the coming weeks, I’ll fill y’all in on my ideas for the coming months, but for now, let’s all just stay warm and cozy up with a good book.
