Welcome Sixers! Can you believe it's already DECEMBER? Honestly not sure how we've made it this far this fast, but as they say, time flies when you're having fun! I slayed the 50K dragon on November 29th, but the story is far from over yet, especially now that I'm learning all kinds of things that are in the background about Mark & Alexa in HEART OF THE SURF. Little secrets keep leaking out that tells me far more than even my hero & heroine know. LOVE IT when that happens!
 
As always, for those who might not know here's what 6 Sentence Sunday is all about-

Pick six (6) sentences from anything you like (it can be from a Work in Progress (WiP), something you recently sold, something you hope to sell or even something already under contract and available for purchase – and don’t worry, Six Sentence Sunday is for published AND unpublished writers). Then post them on your blog on Sunday. That’s all there is to it!

You can add yours link to their official list by signing up before midnight the Saturday beforehand, but for any who are familiar with it, you probably already know they will be shutting down soon and there will be no more Six Sentence Sundays. That's not to say I won't still continue to share a little something on Sundays and I'm thinking seriously of just changing it up a little and calling it Sexy Snippit Sundays, or something like that.

Heading back into my currently unpublished contemporary romance, Love by Design, which is the one I'm planning to release as my first self-pubbed. I don't have a release date yet as I'm hoping to just make it through the rest of December and the holidays and in the new year, I plan to get down to business to get it out to you.

{Teaser- I DO have a very pretty-pretty to share, soon, I promise!...;)}


Love by Design

Jasmine Galloway sees beauty in all things but it’s not a thing of beauty when she meets Derrek Martin, a shallow, arrogant playboy celebrity. When her sister Juniper, a blockbuster actress, recommends her interior design business, D├ęcor Dreams, to Derrek, it’s sure to be a disaster. Jasmine is uncertain she can hold her tongue and get the job done, but she takes it, never one to let her opinions of others stand in the way of professional success and she’s not about to let some pretty boy win her over whose ego is as big as his blockbuster movies. It isn’t long before Derrek’s gentle, affectionate manner and country boy charm gets the better of her. She curses herself for allowing the tabloid fodder to contaminate her impression of a man who might well put his designs on her heart.

Derrek Martin counts himself lucky his acting career took off shortly after his arrival in California. Even more since his parents’ deaths left him the guardian of his little sister. The new house is nice, but it needs a woman’s touch before he brings Paige out from Indiana to live with him. He knows his reputation in the tabloids depicts him far from who he really is, but he has never met with a more chilly reception than the moment he meets Jasmine Galloway, Interior Designer to the Stars. He’s sure she has read everything bad ever published about him and disregards all the good. His private life is simply that, private. Derrek intends to keep it that way—until he meets Jasmine.

Her blatant dislike for him pushes a button no one else ever has and Derrek finds he’s desperate to prove that he isn’t what the tabloids make him out to be. More than that, he’s determined to make her his leading lady, but will an ex with a secret steal the spotlight away?
When his lips descended upon hers, every dream she had of this moment paled and faded in comparison. His lips were soft and tender, moving over hers. Slow at first, but with more intensity as she kissed him back, thriving on pure instinct.
His breath mingled with hers. His lips parted, tempted, and teased hers open. Uninhibited by the vibrations that rolled through her, she submitted to his persuasion.
