Weekend Writing Warriors #25!

Hey, folks! Happy Sunday! Today I'm going wayyyyy back in time to July 28th, 2012, the day I became published for the very first time. Okay, so it's only a year ago, and I still feel as giddy as a schoolgirl whenever I think of that day. Blind Faith is the name of the story that made my dreams come true, which is so very fitting. You gotta have a whole lotta faith in this crazy writing world we live in.  

Here's the blurb: 

Faith Lawson is just your average, wholesome librarian with a dirty mind…until a chance encounter with a handsome stranger brings her fantasies to life in a frantic night of passion. But when he walks out her door, he leaves a piece of his past behind that changes everything.

And now, an excerpt!

She smiled, admiring the way the snow fell to the ground without pause or prohibition, on display for the world to see. The last thing she wanted to do was ruin this perfect moment, but she wasn’t ready for it to end, either. Not even close.

Fueled by the cold snow and his warm eyes, Faith mustered the courage to invite him in. “Do you like hot chocolate?”

His lips pressed to hers, firm and fervent, and she had all the answer she needed.

They burst through her apartment door. His tongue was in her mouth and his hands were…everywhere.


Hello, hot man hands ripping the sexy thong on the...Uh. Sorry. Hi! Make sure you take some time to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day! :)
