Playing with Temptation, March 2015


In a writer’s world, no two sweeter words are ever written. I wrote those two words just a few weeks ago when I finished my latest story (PLAYING WITH TEMPTATION, The 1st book in my new Players Club Series that is out now!) and The End to a story is always a cause for celebration. It’s also a time to regroup and de-stress before diving into the next story and deadline.

First things first, I must clean my office. During the last week or two of writing, when it gets very intense because I have to scramble and write over-time to make up for all the time I’ve goofed off, my office becomes a catch-all. I have piles of papers and other things covering every bit of surface of my desk. Piles of mail I have to go through. A stack of “must do” items that I need to take care of as soon as the book is done. A list of writing related and promotional things that have to be taken care of. It takes me a good day to go through everything, but when I’m done and I can see my desk again, it’s such a wonderful feeling! (Even if I know it won’t last long, LOL!)

Next, is cleaning the house. Not just a quick surface cleaning, but really taking care of the nitty-gritty, down and dirty stuff. Cleaning the showers, toilets, refrigerator, mopping the tile floors and vacuuming the cobwebs that have sprung up here and there in various corners of the house. During this time the dog gets a much needed bath, too. I love a clean house, and even though I know it won’t last long, I can at least enjoy it for a few days.

Then comes a bit of “me time”. Time to relax and de-stress before diving into the next book. I need a hair-cut and color badly, and that’s first on my list. My finger and toe nails are chipped and are looking pretty scraggly, so a manicure and pedicure is definitely in order. There’s movies I want to see at the theater, and movies I want to rent that I missed when they were on the big screen. I’ll go to lunch with girlfriends and read a few books from my to-be-read pile, and work on my beading/jewelry that I make.

Life will be very good and relaxing for about a week. This is like my vacation time from my job, and I try to enjoy every moment of it, because all too soon I’m right back into the writing frenzy and another deadline fast approaching.

So, how do you like to relax and de-stress?


When Raina Beck is given an invitation to The Players Club, all she wants is a night of decadence with a gorgeous, sexy stranger. The seductive, mysterious man she meets fulfills her deepest desires and most erotic fantasies, giving her a night she’ll never forget. But forgetting him isn’t quite so easy.

Logan Cruz prefers his women submissive and compliant in the bedroom . . . everything the independent Raina is not. Yet from the first moment he lays eyes on her, he’s determined to make Raina his. Despite her resistance.

When Logan is assigned to protect Raina from a stalker, everything between them changes. Sex becomes more than just physical, and emotions run deep. Falling in love was never on Raina’s agenda, but can she let go of the past and surrender the one thing he wants the most . . . her heart?
