He took a long sip of his coffee and slammed down the mug. “Yeah, I had sex with her a couple of times. I felt sorry for her.”

Joanne Guidoccio


She liked sex, especially with Jason. But if she gave in, it would be a helluva lot more than sex for her, and there wasn’t much chance he felt the same way.

Kathryn Jane


He’d been friends with Louie long enough to understand the Italian word for asshole. And he was correct. Richie Malone was a stronzo and more. “Why him? Didn’t you warn her about his sexual harassment cases?”

Marian Lanouette


Next to drugs and alcohol, meaningless sex was another escape during his darkest days. But none of them ever gave him the high he had experienced with Elise.

S.A.Taylor
A Twisted Fate (work in progress)


The brush of Meg’s body as she moved past him sent heat straight to his groin. The shooting hadn’t affected his sex drive, at least not where she was concerned.

Marsha West


Sarah hadn’t been lying when she’d told Nate it’d been a long time since she’d had sex. But, honestly, it wouldn’t have mattered when the last time was because no man had ever made love to her like Nate had.

Sharon Wray


“The tall blond with the gorgeous green eyes? I have one word for him—-Va Va Va Voom.”

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


Sex was just that – sex. It was easy to find it when he wanted it. His life was uncomplicated – but empty.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


My libido had shot straight to a ten, and I was ready for a night of wild, uninhibited sex with a new, exciting partner. With Heath Barrow, a kind, compassionate, fun man I found I simply could not resist.

I wondered: would I ever love or be loved by anyone again who would inspire me to have such a piece created? Until I’d arrived here in Alabama, I sincerely doubted it.

Claire Gem


“I needed to be around people who loved and nurtured me.”

Joanne Guidoccio


Flicked a glance to a higher shelf, to a photo of her at eighteen and madly in love with the tall, scrawny kid at her side.

Kathryn Jane


He pushed her back but held on to her by the shoulders and stared into her eyes. “I promise, Sophia. I love you. You don’t understand what it did to me to when I thought I’d lose you. I promise with all my heart not to get mad.” Grinning, he added, “But you know me better than anyone. I’ll apologize now if I do.”

Marian Lanouette


Their life wasn’t picture perfect, but their love smoothed out any kinks they had encountered along the way.

S.A.Taylor
Follow Me (work in progress)


Did her looks hinder her doing her job? He bet every man who worked with her fell secretly in love.

Marsha West


“I’m interested in Stuart Pinckney’s death because he was married to Allison Pinckney,” Zack said. “Allison is the woman I love.”

Sharon Wray


“I love those cartoons.” “‘Barber of Seville’ is the best.” “Don’t forget ‘Duck Season.’” He raised his mug and toasted me. “A girl who likes cartoons has good taste.”

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


She had extricated him from his emotional exile to realize he was worth loving and capable of feeling the same deep love she gave him.

Odd that I thrive on finding creative solutions to complicated rescue scenarios or diagnosing the mystery of someone’s medical issue, but the reality of your pregnancy is melting my brain.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


I know I won’t be able to rest until this mystery . . .whatever is holding this ghost-child here, is solved.

Claire Gem


If all went well at tonight’s séance, the mystery man would be revealed.

Joanne Guidoccio


That’s when she decided to simply be herself, not some mysterious other person with an ancient heritage and a language she didn’t understand.

Kathryn Jane


It baffled him how with each visit he hoped she’d step into the now and accept the past. Optimism, it sprung eternal.

Marian Lanouette


“Who is in the other camp?” She hated to ask but needed to know.

Marsha West


“According to the prison hospital’s records,” Detective Garza said, “Nate is still a patient. Kells and his mystery helper may have gotten Nate a short-term reprieve, but he wasn’t released.”

Sharon Wray


Chuckling, I washed and dried the mixer’s stainless bowl and retrieved the powdered sugar, cream cheese, and a dash of orange liqueur, my secret weapon, from the pantry.

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


The flashlight beams bouncing off men and trees and the body of her husband lying like a discarded sack on the wet ground was like something out of a murder mystery.

“You trust your granddaughter with a hockey player? I thought you had more sense than that.”

Jacquie Biggar


Trust didn’t come easy with him. She’d had to earn it. He didn’t even trust his own ability to form natural attachments.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


“When my trust fund comes through in January, we’ll have enought to start over somewhere else.”

Joanne Guidoccio


“You didn’t trust me to keep you safe out here?”

“You’re not responsible for me,” she said. “I am.”

Kathryn Jane


“Do you trust me?” Again, Jett had to yell over the loud rotor blades.

Still rooted in place and unable to move, I glanced up to the men watching my every move.

S.A.Taylor
Follow Me (work in progress)


To experience a relationship, you have to trust. Addie wasn’t sure she’d ever be able to do that after what her ex had done.

Marsha West


Whatever Nate was doing, it was for the good of the unit. That’s the kind of brother Nate was: loyal, trustworthy, and determined to redeem all of their lives.

Sharon Wray


A tilt of my head, eyes rolled up. The same one my mother had doled on me, when as a small child, I’d annoyingly play twenty questions to test her.

In an affectionate manner, she patted my arm to convey her support. “Just kidding.” Overcome with sentiment, I let her friendship fill me, making me feel whole again.

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


“Hang on the me.” Sam tucked herself under the arm braced on the truck and encouraged him to walk. “One step at a time. You can do this.”

Jacquie Biggar


Chris’s compassion and words of encouragement were liberating but the reality was too new, too raw.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


Wasn’t Medina the one who boasted about sex with no emotional ties? Wasn’t she the one who’d encouraged her to have a fling in the first place?

Claire Gem


I watched, mesmerized, as Sarah went through a familiar Hatha yoga routine. I listened as the familiar voice described each step in detail and gave encouragement along the way.

Joanne Guidoccio


“I would encourage blogging, and I would be adamant that social media is all about positive attitude. I would use it to illustrate the power of kindness, and the joy it can bring others.”

Kathryn Jane


Addie’s gaze glued onto Mike. Jeremy’s did too. “Now, if what you know falls into one of these categories, I encourage you to speak up.”

Marsha West


Nate’s hands encouraged hers to continue exploring, his breath sounded like a low-flying jet. “Sarah.” The way he drawled her name, like a deep yearning, sent shock waves through her body.

“I don’t believe Remiel is responsible for this nightmare,” Nate said. “Remiel is a low-level gunrunner who couldn’t strike a deal with a boy scout troop.”

Sharon Wray


I said, “I believe she’s incredibly jealous of my previous wins. I wouldn’t put anything past her to wreck our entry.”

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


“His career is on the line and I happen to believe in your ability to get him on his skates before the play-offs. Can you do that?”

Jacquie Biggar


I’d never been one to believe in the supernatural: ghosts, or hauntings, or poltergeists. I’d always been the logical one.

Claire Gem


Big Mouse and Little Mouse. I can’t believe their nicknames came to mind so quickly. Such is the power of those early monikers.

Joanne Guidoccio


I’m lighter when I’m around him. He makes me laugh and cry and believe and doubt, and he even makes me angry and sad sometimes.

Kathryn Jane


He wasn’t the most considerate or compassionate person, but a murderer? She’d seen nothing to believe Max could have hurt Joe Sterling, by accident or intent.

S.A. Taylor

“You know, Detective Martinez, if I were guilty, I don’t believe I’d be very inclined to cooperate with you. Neither my daughter nor I have anything to do with the gun.”

Jill practically skipped up the steps to the Inn. Sparklers flicked along inside her veins. She wouldn’t be satisfied if her Texas folks didn’t like Woodstock, her store, her new friends.

Marsha West


Zack wasn’t proud of his temper, but there was a lot he wasn’t proud of at the moment. Including his shiny, new dishonorable discharge which matched his new uniform of worn jeans and whatever T-shirt he could scrounge up for the day.

Sharon Wray


“If I’m participating, I’ll need a brand-new fruitcake. I wouldn’t want to be like Crazy Wanda who enters the same freakin’ lump of dough every freakin’ year.”

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


She’d spent her career battling everything from drug lords to some of the most notable arms dealers of the past decade, but poachers were new.

Jacquie Biggar


The joy of their new relationship was being derailed by AJ’s loyalty and concern for his best friend.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


“I’m new in town,” the blonde said. Heath blinked. He knew just about everybody in this small burg, and surely would have heard if–

Claire Gem


She would shed her old life like a snake sheds its skin, just as she had so many years ago, before she’d met Jason. She would be new and whole, and her life would be very different once again.

Kathryn Jane


With the nervousness of landing behind me, a new feeling took over – excitement.

I’d give anything to feel that kind of carefree love and receive the look of adoration like the man gave his girlfriend. Although my heart ached, I had to capture the moment with my camera.

S.A. Taylor
A Twisted Fate (work in progress)


What lay ahead if she didn’t buy the store? The idea of leaving Woodstock, Crystal Rainbows, Karen, and her new friends squeezed Jill’s heart right out of her chest.

Marsha West


Nate’s heart hurt at the loss of the friendship, at the loss of his brothers. His parents were long dead, and his buddies had been his only family.

Sharon Wray


Something there clutched in an excited grab, the kind that makes one’s heart go all springy, like receiving an unexpected bouquet of beauteous flowers and cutesy puppies rolling on the floor.

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


He looked like an outdoor magazine model with his lived-in face and burly shoulders. Molly heard the appreciative sighs from the women around her and her heart stuttered.

Jacquie Biggar


You worked your way into my heart and took it one piece at a time, AJ. You nearly grabbed it all when you landed in the hospital and I almost lost you.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


Warm, bare skin fuzzed with chocolate brown curls. His heart thudded beneath taught muscle.

Claire Gem


“The heart wants what the heart wants,” I said, realizing that I was quoting Luigi’s final words to me.

Joanne Guidoccio


“Dying of a broken heart,” said the other lady. “Not on my watch. I made a promise.and I’m taking her home.”

The air began to sparkle, and her peripheral vision went black. All she could see were lighted circles of what was directly in front of her.

Kathryn Jane


Elise heard someone calling her name, but it was muffled. With her vision blurry, she worked hard to focus on what looked like someone standing next to her.

S.A.Taylor
A Twisted Fate (work in progress)


Excruciating pain began in her middle and trembling spread outward. Her breath dissolved in her chest. Darkness closed around her vision.

Marsha West


Sarah’s vision wavered from lightheadedness and dehydration. Her burst of righteous anger had exhausted her.

Sharon Wray


“The Aunt Nellie from television? The one with the cooking show? She’s your aunt?”

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


He was besieged by visions of her tantalizing body naked under his, hands held above her head, cat eyes flaring with passion, breasts painted a dusky rose under the glow of flickering candles.

Jacquie Biggar


The doomed firefighter slowly sank out of AJ’s field of vision like a drowning victim going down for the third and final time.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair

To this day, any mention of rabbits conjures up visions of the younger Mrs. Maddalone, who lured Lorenzo and derailed all future plans.

The cool breeze during the séance had come from somewhere, but all the doors and windows were closed.

Joanne Guidoccio


“Have you ever thought about going to Korea to trace your heritage?” She stared out the side window. “A lot.”

Kathryn Jane


But all of those plans changed when he closed the window and the Jeep pulled away. This time, it felt like the tentative connection that bound us together, was severed when he drove away.

S.A.Taylor
Follow Me (work in progress)


As the plane sailed into the air at that heart-stopping take-off angle, she gazed through her window one last time at the Fort Worth skyline.

Marsha West


Sarah moved into the sunlight streaming through the window. She needed to feel the sun’s heat on her face and never wanted to be in the dark again.

Sharon Wray


Once we reached the complex’s door, he did release me to open it. I went straight to the elevator, vigorously rubbing my hands along my arms to stimulate circulation.

Vicki Batman
The Great Fruitcake Bake-off, Whispers of Winter set


She should learn to close her blinds—he lowered the telephoto zoom lens to the windowsill of his nondescript car and considered what he’d seen.

Jacquie Biggar


Thick, black smoke billowed from the windows. As AJ pulled his helmet on, he experienced the familiar feeling of excitement with a respectful dose of caution.
