Ivy knows that as a female Were-tiger, finding a mate is supposed to be her top priority. But life is busy conspiring to get in the way. Traumatized by a recent attack by a man from her past, her darkest secret is coming back to haunt her, and she fears he won’t stop until she’s dead. As if that weren’t enough, Ivy has other problems. She and her tiger side aren’t exactly friends and her brother is trying to set her up on a blind date for the full moon. How can she control her tiger during the full moon when she’s more concerned about being killed?
It’s Monday. Ugh! Does anyone like Monday? Really? I think monday’s stink. You have so much fun and relaxation over the weekend them BAM Monday. It sneaks up on you when your not looking. I had so much fun this weekend. I went on a date with my hubby. We had Hawaiian and it was amazing. I got to eat Ahi tuna for the first time in a year!! And I love Ahi tuna! Nice big slices served on wantons. Yummy! Then I had shrimp tacos, with lime and salsa. Sooooo Good. It was pure bliss, and the company was fantastic. Then we took a small walk down Central and rode the lightrail to Tempe to explore. It was amazing. I felt young and alive. Instead of like a mom all the time who works her butt off. It was so nice to relax and let my hair down. We are going to an Art Festival next weekend and I just know I’m going to have a good time, but I really think the company determines your outcome on a date. If they don’t enjoy themselves neither do you. I have been so happy lately I can hardly contain it. Even friends have commented on the change in me. I am living life and loving it! To all you rock and rollers, crash queens and motor babies. Listen Up! Live, Love, Laugh, hysterically if you’ve got to… Here are the hotties.
Who else is pumped for today? I had a fabulous weekend and Monday and am excited to see what else the week will bring. I am quickly getting ready for the holiday next week. I’m already listening to Christmas music and buying decorations. So ecstatic for my favorite time of year. I would also like to note a new sense of happiness in my life. It’s amazing the difference one positive person can make on your outlook.
On the writing front I am still way behind. The goal is to get Dangerous Pride finished. Unfortunately, I am having some health problems that are causing a lot of exhaustion. I am posting pics of my inspiration for Memo and Anne in DP. I always look for pictures of my characters and their surroundings then tweak them to suit my needs. Some times I even build back grounds for my computer with the pics so I have my daily inspiration.
This book was a My Chemical Romance book, meaning I wrote most of it while listening to MCR’s Black Parade album. They are my favorite band and I listen to them almost everyday on the way to work. I usually stumble through some of the lyrics, cuz Gerard Way is hard to understand sometimes. But how adorable is he??
Also my publisher just dropped prices as a holiday special!! The books in the Midnight series can be purchased for $.69 a piece, Bound by Darkness for $.99 and The Mating Moon for $4.00. So rush over to Sapphire Blue Publishing and get yours today!
So here’s to having a fantastic day and looking a gorgeous men.
I am so happy today. I think my world has finally righted itself and by God if it’s not about time. Today I am thankful for my mother in law Juanita, who has a lot to do with my positive self image. She has taught me many things over the years. The first lesson was that I could be ok with myself no matter what size I am. I had an eating disorder is high school. I would starve myself to loose weight then only eat junk food and dinner so my parents wouldn’t be suspicious. I weighted 125lbs and was 5’8″ tall in a size 9/10 and thought I was fat when I met her. Soon after that I got pregnant with my daughter and gained 65 lbs. I wasn’t worried about it because it was pregnancy weight and I lost it pretty fast dropping to 140lbs. But I was okay. Then I had my son and was at 206 when I delivered. I lost that to 150lb and was pretty okay but still on a diet and exercise regimen. Then I had a breakdown when my son was 2 and found out I am Bipolar. I went through a series of bad medicine and illnesses to get where I am today all of which made me gain weight. I learned really fast through the love of my mil, my hubby and my BFFs that size does not matter. So now I am heavy, but extremely happy with myself and my size most of the time. I also learned how to love from my mil. I saw how she love her kids and realized I could love my kids and hubby like that. She also taught me how to cook, which the family is extremely thankful for. My poor hubby and kids lived on Hamburger Helper and Au gratin potatoes for years. She also let us live with her for the for the first six years of our marriage until my hubby got through school and kids got old enough to go to daycare while I worked. She also taught me how to manage and run a daycare. That is why my book Bound by Darkness is dedicated to her. She taught me to be who I am without the masks as much as I can, which is the lesson Lila learns.
Also today is a writing prompt. I am going to put one up each day for the things I am thankful for. So today prompt is this:
It had taken Eli months to admit he was in love with her. She was an angel. A sweet breeze that drifted through his senses every time he thought of doing the wrong thing, making the wrong choice. She was what’d kept him on the straight and narrow for the last few months. The black Katana and his leather jacket were all that was left of his wild life. He was a dark, ominous presence in most peoples lives, but he’d turned in his scythe for her, his angel. Now here he was with her half naked in his arms and all he could think about was the danger they were both in. The Grim Reaper didn’t throw off the will of the devil and the demon himself would be coming for them now with the hounds of hell in tow. For now he would savor her body and bring his hell dulled senses to life, even if for only an hour. He’d take her slow and deep until she shivered and screamed out his name. When they came for her, because she would fall after this, he would fight and protect her. As she rubbed her partially clothed body over him, he pushed his tongue deep into her luscious mouth and reached for his sword. Black as midnight and made of hellfire it warmed his palm. His old friend. Always nearby. Sure that he had taken all necessary precautions he flipped her to her back thankful that her wings were retraced into their slits. He stripped her bra and panties quickly as he melodic voice twinkled in his ears. “Eli, I love you.” “Always, my angel,” he replied and kissed her deep as he penetrated her slick folds. There was a crack of thunder and the flash of lightening as he tore through her barrier. She arched and screamed his name clawing at his back.
What if one woman was in love with two men? And they both loved her enough to share her. What if they two were in love with each other, what if the complete relationship was a perfect triangle without resentment, or guilt?
What if a woman was caught between two men, being torn apart by her love for each of them and they were both alpha males, neither one wanting to share and each wanting her for his own. What if that was the break in the relationship. Which male would she choose?
What if she was the other woman, and the men were lovers, but one always wondered what might have been had he stayed with her. Maybe his lover gives him one night with her, to explore the possibilities??
