Here is a sneak peek from the story. This is from Kia’s POV:
I walked out of the hotel and headed to the first place I saw, which was Hawthorne Diner. I walked in, instantly loving the smell of the burgers and fries that were being served. Although it was still breakfast, I was already craving the meal that many customers were getting.
I sat down at the counter and tried to get the waitress’ attention, but she walked right past me to go to another customer. That’s cool, because I didn’t know what I wanted anyway.
I looked around when I noticed someone coming up to the counter. He was absolutely gorgeous. From the short blonde hair, green eyes, and muscular physique, he was definitely different than what I was usually attracted to, but I couldn’t deny that he was sexy as hell.
“Is this seat taken?” he asked me.
As soon as he spoke, my pussy began to throb. I clutched my thighs together, wondering what the hell was wrong with me.
Get it together, Kia!
“No… no… it’s not taken.”
“Thanks,” he said and sat down. He flashed a sexy smile, which had me a bit wet. Yeah, something was definitely wrong with me.
“Hey, Cane. What can I get you?” The waitress who I was trying to flag down earlier appeared. I glanced at her, wondering how she was acknowledging him but not me.
“Hey, Stella. I don’t think you got this lovely lady’s order yet, have you?” he asked. He glanced at me again, which made me a bit shy.
“Oh, I guess not. I must didn’t see you sitting there,” she said in a cold tone. I rolled my eyes, knowing where this was heading.
“You saw me perfectly well, Stella,” I said while looking at her name tag, even though the guy mentioned her name.
“Well, what do you want?” she asked in a hostile tone.
“Really, Stella. Do you have to be rude to your new customer?”
“How do you know I’m new?” I asked.
“Believe me, Tyler is sort of a small city and Hawthorne is the place to be. All the locals come here and I pretty much know everyone,” the guy said.
“He’s right,” Stella replied. I didn’t even acknowledge her since she didn’t with me.
“Well, Stella, let me get the usual and whatever the pretty lady wants, it’s on me,” he said and flashed that smile again, making my pussy throb a second longer.
“Uh, you don’t have to buy my meal. I got it.”
“I assume you do, but I insist.”
Stella rolled her eyes before staring at me. “Well, he’s paying so what’s your order?”
“Aren’t you a ray of sunshine?” I said to Stella. She groaned and I laughed. I would keep messing with her, but she’d probably spit in my food, so I stopped. “I’ll have the burger and fries, please. But, I’m paying for it.”
The guy shook his head and already pulled out his money. Stella called out my order as well as his, which was the “Cane Special,” before walking off.
I looked at the guy named Cane with a curious expression. “Is she always like that?”
He laughed. “Ever since I was a kid. She’s not too keen on visitors, so excuse her behavior.”
“I guess,” I mumbled. “So, you got a meal named after you?”
“Not really. It’s just eggs, bacon, and pancakes. I just order it a lot, so they automatically know it’s for me.”
I nodded. “You probably need to go to another place to eat.”
“I love it here. But, anyway, Stella doesn’t represent everyone who lives here. For me, I love to encounter visitors. Where are you from?”
I shifted in my seat, wondering if I should even talk to him. It’s not like I’d see him again.
“Cool. You must be here for business.”
“Because like I said earlier, Tyler is not a big city.”
“Let’s just say I’m here for business and a bit of pleasure.”
He gave me the once over, which made me bite my lip. I was doing too much right now.
“I don’t think I introduced myself. Cane Brooks.” he said and extended his hand out to me.
“Kia Collins,” I said and accepted his handshake.
“I have to admit, you are a beautiful woman. Extremely beautiful. Since you’re new to the city, maybe I can show you around.”
“I prefer not,” I said.
“Why not? I’m sure you don’t know anyone here.”
“I rather keep it that way for now. But, thank you.”
Cane nodded. “Okay, cool.” He got up from his seat and stared at me once more. “I hope you enjoy your meal and maybe we’ll cross paths again.”
“I don’t think we will,” I said.
He leaned closer to me. I took in the intoxicating scent of his cologne. He put his hand behind my chair while lowering his lips to my ear.
“Trust me, we will see each other again. I’m counting on it.”
Just hearing how sexy he sounded made me immediately have thoughts I shouldn’t be having. This was a complete stranger and I was literally wet from his damn voice.
You’re a mess, girl.
Don’t I know it.
“Nice to meet you, Kia,” Cane said. He gave me another delectable smile before going to the door, forgetting all about the food he just ordered.
I watched him leave, staring at the fine specimen walking out the door. I slowly turned around to see Stella sitting my meal in front of me. She shook her head, making my attitude change from lustful to annoyed.
“Here’s your burger and fries. I see Cane left without his food again.”
“I guess he does that a lot, huh?”
“He does, but let me give you a word of advice about him.”
“Do I want it?” I asked.
“I think you should take it. I don’t know how long you’re going to stay here, but don’t get involved with him while you’re here. He’s nothing but trouble.”
I smirked. “Trust me, I have my own issues to worry about. I don’t need the extra drama. But, I’m still paying for my order.”
Stella shook her head. “Cane paid for it, so let him. Just enjoy your burger and fries.”
I smiled. “Fine. Thanks.”
Stella nodded and went to the back to grab another order. I stared at my food, completely taken aback by what Stella just said. But she didn’t have anything to worry about. I was trying to rediscover myself and adding another man to the mix wouldn’t help my dilemma. Right now, I just wanted to focus on getting myself back together.

ABOUT THE BOOK
I did not tell her the truth about what I really am…
The circumstances surrounding our introduction are unimportant. The only thing that matters is that Sasha Wilcox is my mate and she belongs to me. A night of unbridled passion sealed the deal, but before I could tell her the truth, she was gone. Days have turned into weeks and there is no way I can be without her. I must find her and bring her back to me. No one will stand in my way, especially not the one man who thinks he can steal her from me, Stefan Miller.
I want him so badly, and I have no idea why…
The last thing I should be doing is thinking about Remi Moretti: the green-eyed Italian man who kidnapped me and held me hostage for three days in Tuscany. I want to say that I feared for my life while under his guard, but that would be a lie. The truth is, in a moment of… weakness, I gave my body to him. He set it on fire, but I escaped, and now I need to move on with my life with Stefan, a great guy, who will make a great boyfriend. But why do I crave Remi’s touch? Why do I smell his intoxicating essence every time I breathe? And why do I sense his presence, even though he’s in Italy, and I’m in Miami?

Hi everyone!! I’m excited to have Lisa W. Tetting stopping by my blog today to spotlight her new novella, The Opposite of Hew. Make sure to read the excerpt and 1-Click your copy to read today. 🙂
Available on Amazon , FREE with Kindle Unlimited.
Kay McQueen is different from the women in her family. She lives her life for her, not for a man. Though she enjoys an occasional romp with a sexy man, she is not looking for Mr. Right. Her goals in life are to build her home health care business, and to travel the world. Well, at least she has her business life together. The travel thing, not so much. That is until her favorite aunt passes away, leaving a journal with her final wishes.
As far as Kay knows, Aunt Gigi is the ultimate single girl, the life of the party, even pushing eighty years old. What she finds in Gigi’s journal causes her to rethink her position on love and marriage. She embarks on a dual purpose journey; to scatter Gigi’s ashes and to discover love. Along the way, she encounters a man named Heath who is tall, sexy, and has magical hands. His kisses set her body on fire, but when she finds out his true identity, she wants to set him on fire, literally.
Find out how Kay handles the situation and see exactly who Heath is and what it means to Kay’s family. When these two worlds collide, the outcome is explosive. Heath’s lies and deception finally catch up with him, as Kay finds that what she was looking for, she already had. Discover why Happily Ever After isn’t always what it seems.
I allowed my alarm to blare into the room for three minutes before I begrudgingly unearthed myself from the mountain of covers on my California King. My bed is super comfy, but that’s not the reason I didn’t want to leave it. This was the most dreaded day of the year! This was the day when ALL of my family members got together, for the sole purpose of finding me a man. The McQueen family reunion!
You may think I was overreacting, but I swear, ever since I turned forty they have been coming out of the woodwork. Aunties, uncles, cousins, play cousins, brothers that I don’t have and sisters that I wish I didn’t all congregated under the guise of family, just to torture me. If I had to hear ‘Kay, when are you gonna find you a man and have some babies?’ one more time, I think I might join a convent. That would shut them up. On second thought, the nuns would probably be giving me the side eye too.
I finally made it onto my feet in a standing position and stumbled into the bathroom to take care of my business. Before the water could even heat in the shower my big sister, Tessa, was blowing up my phone. Mind you, I had a gas water heater, so the water was always hot. I should let her old melon head go to voicemail, but she will keep calling until I answer.
“Good morning Tess. What’s good?”
“What’s good? What young boy did you learn that from? You sound like your nephew when he’s talking to his friends.”
“Did you call to give me lessons on millennial phrases and culture, or was there a purpose to this call?”
I rolled my eyes and removed my toothbrush from its holder, spreading toothpaste on the bristles. I may as well brush while she ranted. There would be no way for me to get a word in edgewise. Putting the call on speaker, I placed my phone on the counter so I could groom properly without being rude.
“Eww, who pissed in your cornflakes this morning? Anywho, I just wanted to make sure you were up. You can’t be late for the festivities this year. Auntie Gigi has been asking for you since everyone arrived last night. You should have seen that woman trying to twerk. I swear, Kay, if you don’t get your act together, you will turn out just like her. Old, sad and alone, trying to shake your behind with the young folk.”
Tessa never did get along with Auntie Gigi, but she was my favorite aunt. Somehow, Tessa thought comparing me to her would be an insult, but I would love to live the kind of life Gigi had. Pushing eighty years old and could twerk? Are you kidding me? #lifegoals
My older sister made a habit of asking me when I was going to settle down and get married. That was her way of showing me that she cared, but her inquiries annoyed me. As a forty something strong African American woman I did not need a man to validate my life! Though, if I was being honest, I definitely want one sometimes.
Hi everyone!! After a brief hiatus, Love & Drama: The Root Of All Evil, the interracial standalone, is back on Amazon! The story was originally under my former publisher, but now, I’m releasing it as an indie standalone. It’s the same story, but a different cover. That’s all.
If you are unfamiliar with this story, here is the blurb:
He’s a hitman who’s trying to change his ways.
She’s the good girl that loves to do bad things.
When these two are together, anything is possible.
When Zuri Caldwell meets Damon Baxter at a club five years ago, she never expected for her life to be turned upside down. After having a one-night stand together, she never realized she would be seeing him again, until she sets foot in his classroom.
While they try to stay away, the attraction is still there that the two cannot deny, leading them to have a discreet relationship. That is, until Zuri moves to California for an executive position.
Five years later and she is back in Houston, lost on her luck since she was fired from her job over an event that went extremely wrong. She encounters Damon again, which sparks up old memories. Even though Damon wants her back, Zuri doesn’t since she just got over an engagement. However, that doesn’t mean she won’t sample a little of what he’s offering.
The two fall back into a sexual relationship that could prove dangerous since Damon has been living a double life. He tried to leave his old life as a hitman behind, but his past keeps catching up with him, forcing him into doing one last hit. He never wanted to do it, but there’s a reason he has to, Zuri. There’s one catch though, she has to be involved as well. Mainly because her ex-fiancé is the target.
The two have to find a way to get what the men need without tipping off anyone, including their friends, Zuri’s parents, and most of all, her ex. But can the two do it without having their feelings get involved?

Hi everyone! Since I haven’t been on my blog recently, I’m giving you all two Sample Sunday posts! This one is from Love & Drama: The Root Of All Evil, which is avaiable now!
This excerpt is when the main characters, Damon and Zuri, unexpectedly see each other again in an unlikely place after their one-night stand together. This is also from Zuri’s POV.
I can’t believe I did that! I’m still in shock that I slept with a complete stranger. I’m not going to lie, it was good. Damn, it was good, but just because it was doesn’t excuse the fact that I fucked someone that I just met not too long ago. That was tacky and nasty and those two things are not me.
Once I got over the initial shock of my actions, I tried to leave Damon’s place, but while I was in the middle of putting my dress on, he picked me up, put me on the top of his dresser and ate me out until I was too weak to move. This guy was perfect. He’s sexy, funny, and can make my pussy cum more in one night compared to my entire life; but regardless of all that, I couldn’t be with him; that’s why after we had sex for the third time, I grabbed my clothes and snuck out while he was asleep. Now it was the next day and I was walking into my Principles of Economics class exhausted but a little happy all because with the night I had, it was well worth it.
I sat down in a seat besides Nicole as she gave me a smirk. “Nice to see you this morning. I didn’t think you were going to make it to class since you were out all night.”
“I did come back to the apartment. I guess you had a good night too.”
“It was good. Chandler took me back home, kissed me and left. He was the perfect gentleman. I can only imagine what you were up to, you little hoe.”
“Does it look like I did anything? Damon and I just talked the entire night.”
“Sure, so I guess you didn’t see all those hickeys on the left side of your neck. I guess he was already branding his territory.”
I quickly pulled out my compact and opened to the mirror. Sure enough, there were a bunch of marks on my neck that I didn’t even realize were there.
“Shit, he must had put it on you good. But I’m surprised at you. You never get down on the first encounter.”
I sighed. “I know; it just happened.”
“It’s those eyes. Trust me, you did the right thing. Too bad you won’t see him again.”
I glanced at her and she shrugged. She’s probably right. Even if there was a chance of us seeing each other again, I kind of ruin us getting together since I left his place in the middle of the night.
I was about to pull out my iPad when the doors swung open and someone walked in. Someone that I was not expecting at all.
“Good morning, class, how is everyone today.” He said as he put down his briefcase and looked at us. He looked into the crowd and automatically spotted me sitting in the second row. He couldn’t take his eyes off of me as he mumbled shit. Several students turned to see what he was staring at. I quickly looked into my backpack, pretending I was looking for something.
Damon cleared his throat before going to the projector. “My name is Damon Baxter and I’ll be filling in for Professor Thomas for the remainder of the semester.”
Nicole giggled. “Damn, you fucked the professor.”
I punched her shoulder as several people turned to stare at me. Damon looked at me again before going to the projector to start class. I was already feeling guilty over what I’d done, but to know I slept with an instructor really made me feel like a slut. I lowered myself in my seat, praying that class will be over soon.
I also created a trailer for the story. You can see it clicking on the link below. 😀
Love & Drama: The Root Of All Evil, is available now on Amazon!! This is an interracial standalone that I am so proud of. If you haven’t download your copy yet, you should because you’re definitely missing out on a great story.
