Archaeologist Rylie Sawyer unknowingly unearthed a cursed pendant that seduces and kills. Desperate to keep others safe, Rylie plans on using her empathic abilities to steal the pendant back. The day of the heist, she discovers she isn’t the only one going after the pendant.

Trey Masters has secretly watched Rylie from afar for the last two years. He will stop at nothing to protect Rylie, even entrapping her with his abilities. All he needs to do now is keep her out of the game while his team acquires the pendant.

Caught by the scars of the past year, Rylie knows she must trust Trey with her life. As the secrets Trey is keeping are revealed, will she trust the man she’s fallen hard for or run away?

A Siren Erotic Romance


ADULT EXCERPT: *Warning: Only For Those 18 or older!*

His mouth crushed over hers in a passionate kiss. She moaned as he used the cold cobblestone to hold her up. Trey’s hands came around to lift her legs around his waist. He smoothed his hands up her thighs and reached around to get a nice squeeze of her ass. Rylie twined her arms around his neck and kissed him fully. Her tongue slipped into his mouth and took control. He groaned.

A small part of her realized she was submitting to his touch and that burned. She was losing every part of her life she had control over.

He pulled his mouth away to nibble on her neck and scraped his teeth up over her earlobe. His heated breath whispered over her ear. “I’m going to make you mine.”

She shivered as his hand moved up her belly to squeeze her breast. He didn’t stop there. His hand stroked up the front of her neck, caressing her thrumming heartbeat. His thumb lifted her chin so that their eyes met. His lips brushed over hers, testing her boundaries. Her pussy clenched tightly. She wanted this and was frightened she would get it.

“Masters.”

“Fuck. I like it when you say my last name,” he growled.

She groaned as his cock pinned her to the wall, pushing her pussy lips open. He kissed her again. She could feel the throbbing beat of his cock as he worked her mouth over. Trey slid his hand down to the button on her jeans, flicking it open with an ease that spoke of experience. Her zipper flew south half a second later.

Rylie broke her mouth away as his hand smoothed over her satin bikinis. He rubbed fast circles over her clitoris, making it stand up and pulsate. She sucked in a harsh breath as his fingers pulled her panties aside and they were skin on skin. She wet his fingers as they dove between her lips in a gentle, erotic push.

He thumbed his way up over her nubbin, rolling it around with the pad of his thumb like a joystick. Rylie was getting close. She could feel her orgasm building to a frenzy. All of a sudden, Trey started to hold back. She was balanced on the edge.

“Open your eyes, Rylie. Look at me.”

Her eyes flew open and her nails dug into his rock hard shoulders. “Trey.”

“When was the last time a man got you off?”

Her foggy and sexed-up brain was slow to understand his question. “Um, you mean you don’t know? I thought you knew everything about me.”

“Answer me, Rylie. When was it?”

“College.”

He groaned. “Tell me you’ve been taking care of your sex.”

She chuckled, a deep, husky sound. “Wouldn’t you like to see that?”

“You have a sassy mouth when you’re aroused.”

“Do I?”

“Yes. Keep your eyes open. I want to see them dilate when you come.”

“You can’t make me.”

He stopped playing with her pussy to drive his point home. The loss of friction and more importantly, his kisses, made her realize how much she wanted Trey to touch her everywhere. She tried to move but he stopped her with a rough pinch to her ass that locked her body down tight to his. He licked and kissed his way down her neck and back up again. His eyes locked with hers.

“When we’re together, you’re mine. You’ll do everything and anything I want.”

He edged the knuckle of his forefinger up and locked her clit between his finger and thumb. She groaned as he emphasized his point by squeezing her clit. Pleasure exploded through her body. He rolled it tighter. Her core tightened and her pussy contracted hard.

“Eyes open,” he groaned.

His demand was an order she dared not refuse. Rylie cried out as her orgasm stole her breath away. She bit her lip as she held his gaze. The muscles in his face and body were flexed taut as he watched her go. There was something animalistic about the way he drank up every last drop of her reaction. The primal need to mate was a tribal beat vibrating between them.

Rylie squirmed, rocking her hips as he held her in his seductive grip, not releasing her clit at all. Her body wet more, causing his knuckles to slip back into her pussy.

Rylie was still riding the top note of her orgasm as he lifted her higher on his hips. He reached down with his other hand to pull the corners of her jeans aside as though he were opening a neatly wrapped gift. He reached in with both hands, grabbing the cotton band of her panties. She gasped as he gently tugged, slipping her panties into a reversed thong. He twisted the cotton into his fist while his fingers went exploring.

Monday's Daydreams!

We had a blast at the picnic yesterday. We did archery, high ropes (indoor and outdoor), swimming, and games. The boys ate lots of snow cones. While the boys were swimming, I did some outlining for my cursed book. Loved my time out yesterday!
My little guy.
My big guy getting ready to fly!

Have a great Monday!

Sunday's Farm Report!

Today, we're going to a picnic and we will be gone all day. Did I tell you how I don't get very much writing done on the weekend?!? The weekends give my brain time to go wild and ideas start whispering. It also gives me time to connect with my family and nature. So much of my writing revolves around environment that I need to go for long walks for inspiration.

Have a great Sunday!

~Tatum

Sinfully Sweet Saturday!

We went to the nature center today to feed the turtles and fish. Being at the nature center reminded me that I wrote a novel years ago that revolved around that land. I'll have to dust off the flash drive it's on and read it.
The guys.
Turtle.
Love this picture of my big guy! :o)

Have a great weekend!

Thursday's Balancing Act!

Everyone is at school...it is so quiet I can hear the cecedas outside, the thump, thump of Coco's bunny feet as he hops through my bedroom and office, and the little nibbles of CJ as he stores his hamster food in his wheel. This is going to take some getting use to.

Now, I just need to get to work. Have a great day!

Wednesday's Word of the Day!

Enticing...

My characters are often led into temptation by the very thing they are trying to avoid. It's usually the hero. He wants her and she is usually more interested in her goals. The hero gets in the way of what she wants. My heroine's eyes awaken quickly to see the man before her, and she ultimately falls in love.

I fall in love each time I write a book. I hope you do too.

Temptation Tuesday!

Today is the last day before school starts for the boys. I made them chocolate chip cookies to celebrate. Their school supplies are all packed up and sitting neatly by the front door. :)

I didn't expected to feel sad about them all going to school this year, but I am. I love having them around to play with. I'm going to miss them while they're away. I can't wait for next summer and all the fun things we'll go do!

Have a happy Tuesday!

Story Excerpt

Rylie Sawyer wasn’t a thief, but she was about to become one.

Her heart hammered as she stared at the pendant through the downtown store window. She was the archeologist that unearthed it in Jordan a year ago. The window vibrated as though it were alive. Rylie reached out and smoothed her fingers across the silky, wet glass. A shiver whispered across Rylie’s chilled skin. She smoothed the wetness between her fingers. It felt like her honey spreading over a man’s cock.

The sound of Cincinnati’s evening commute faded to a low rumble in the background. You’re mine. The ruby’s deadly power to seduce was its charm, its envy. Even now, Rylie could feel the undercurrent taunt her closer. The force was so strong it had her opening the door to the high-end jewelry store.
Warmth blew down from the heating vent.

Everything came into sharp focus. She remembered the first time she put the pendant on. She had an orgasm as soon as the stone settled between the nook between her breasts.

She licked her lips nervously as her nipples tightened into aroused, sensitive peaks from the memory. She was going to steal it tonight.A shot of adrenaline pumped through her body. Rylie’s light-blue irises caressed the bloodred ruby pendant. Light caught the sparkling gem and danced. Diamonds circled the ruby and flounced romantically up the chain.

It was a mistake to go inside before a robbery. She’d be captured on their surveillance cameras. A worker took the pendant from the locked case and brought it to a private table for a couple to see.

Rylie took two steps toward that table before she stopped short. Fear raced over her skin. They were going to buy it before she had a chance to take it. Fuck me.

Darkness clung to the piece. The piece wanted to find another victim. The curse was still alive, and it knew she was here. Its power to allure was an intoxicating, sexual rush like no other Rylie had ever experienced. Even knowing what it was, she wasn’t immune to the power it had.

She headed toward the case nearest the pendant. A flutter rippled over her skin as she moved. Rylie glanced over her shoulder and saw a man standing at the end of the case. He was watching her closely. Their gazes locked. Surprise filtered through his gaze before he shut it down.

Another shiver moved through her body. It was as though she knew him intimately and always had. Who was he?

He was gorgeous.

Wet, black hair curled around his ears and the nape of his neck. He was shockingly handsome. The kind of man that made her aware of her being a woman who hadn’t had sex in over a year. He was all alpha male and by the looks of things just over six foot tall. Perhaps he was even taller up close.

Rylie was suddenly aware, too, that she hadn’t bothered to put on any makeup when she ran out of the hotel this evening. She felt suddenly self-conscious of the fact that her jeans were on their second day and that her shirt was an out-of-season special. Her thin navy-and-polka-dot rain jacket wasn’t much to keep out the Autumn chill.

His smile was a wanted distraction, but not for long. The woman at the table started gushing over the pendant as it was draped around her neck.

“It’s perfect, Tom! I absolutely love it! I have to have it.”

“I don’t know.”

The woman frowned. “What do you mean, you don’t know? It’s amazing.”
The husband had a right to his trepidation. Sunlight glinted off the diamonds as though it were stealing the soul of the sun or the wearer. Rylie circled around the display case just as pain shot through her temple. Rylie flinched.

Fate wanted in again. Not now. Not when she was so close to putting a stop to the cursed thing before it took another life.

She winced. There was little time before she’d lose all control. She had to get out of there before the psychic event left her immobile and more importantly, vulnerable.

Rylie rushed out of the store and onto the Cincinnati sidewalk, tossing one last glance at the pendant. They were taking it to the register. The pendant was getting away again. Rylie groaned as pain shot through her head like a crack of a whip.

She stumbled down the alley, grabbing her head. Quiet enveloped her being. City traffic noises faded. Panic spiraled through her as her hearing went first. She had to get control of herself. She tried the deep breathing exercises her therapist suggested. They weren’t working. She cringed. White-hot fire seared her mind, leaving it sluggish and fogged. Oh, no. It was starting. There was nowhere to go.

Gravel mashed under her heels. Panic enveloped her as her vision went out. She fumbled as she ducked further into the alley. Two more steps and she wouldn’t be seen by anyone. Rylie made it one more before she collapsed to the ground.

Sunday's Farm Report!

Stolen Moment...

Snippet.

Rainwater had seeped into the fibers of his coat. Earth and winter clung to his skin. It reminded her of a time when she wasn’t always on the hunt for the pendant.He took a deep breath and mumbled an oath under his breath.

“You can’t do this alone. I’ve been hunting for cursed objects for a long time. It’s not safe to work alone. It makes you vulnerable.”

“I don’t need anyone.”

He slammed his hand against the wall, but she didn’t jump. She could feel every inch of his frustration. “Please come with me. We need to go someplace to talk.”

Up close, he was taller, more intense. She pushed away from him and he followed. “Not going to happen. Stay away from me.”

Plastic flapped in the wind, making it howl. Trey glanced toward it. It was enough of a distraction. She darted away from Trey, running deeper into the building. She didn’t make it far before he snagged her around the waist from behind. He pressed his lips to her ear. “Close your eyes and calm your breathing.”

Stolen Moment coming soon!

“You had another vision, didn’t you? What did you see?” he asked.
How did he know? “I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m not who you think I am. You’re confused.”
“I’m not.” He backed her further into a wing under construction. “I know how personal this is. The pendant killed your sister. Your family. It continues to seek you. I can help you. I can free you, Rylie.”
She shivered at the possibility of being free. How did he know so much? Who was this man? She had to get away from him. She backed away, but he merely advanced. He grabbed her by the shoulders, holding her against unfinished drywall.
She felt trapped.
“You can’t do this alone anymore,” Trey said.
“Stop it!”

Stolen Moment coming soon! :o)

Happy Friday!

Temptation Tuesday!

Reading romance is often like a sweet indulgence. It's fun to get lost in the lives of two other people trying to figure it all out. I often take my hero and heroine to the edge before they realize that they're meant to be together. So, in celebration of Temptation Tuesday, I'm giving you a snippet of Stolen Moment, Enslaved & Enticed 1.

Snippet
His gaze dropped to her gray silk bra with little red roses arching over the top of the cups. Its simple everyday design was as erotic as black lace. He had to get control of his thoughts before they led him down a dark and dangerous path. That had him looking away and closing his eyes. Wrong move. The feel of skin on skin was becoming too much for him. Trey snapped open his eyes and looked down at Rylie.

He could feel her skin starting to warm. The blue tint to her lips was starting to turn a rosy pink again. Trey’s gaze dropped to the swell of her breasts and blood rushed south to his cock. His dick punched against his boxers like a prize fighter testing the waters with a competitor. Come back to me, Rylie. It’s okay. You’re safe. The pendant won’t hurt you ever again. I won’t let anything hurt you again.

Stolen Moment...out August 30th!

Monday's Daydreams!

Book ideas hit me out of nowhere. I'm often working on something, editing, researching or writing and another one starts whispering in my ear. Hello! I hear you sci-fi romance...I don't have time for you right now. Can you come back later? Maybe in a year. I have a ton on my plate at the moment.

The truth is, writers live in their head. For me, writing a book is putting a puzzle together throughout the day. Yes, I'll sit down and bang out 5,000 words, but the plot, the characters, and yes that very important research is often done away from the computer. Don't get me started on what I think about research. It is the most important tool I use when I'm writing. I cringe when writers gloss over a subject and don't do their research.

My research often takes me away. I'd rather talk to someone about medical procedure than try to google it. So much of my work is often spent on the laptop that it's nice to step away and listen to someone else talk about what they do for a living.

This week is going to be busy for me. My boys go back to school soon and there are a million things to do. I'm still working on final edits for Stolen Moment. Those are due back by Wednesday. I'm going to do a complete read through today and tomorrow.

Back Cover

Rylie finds herself ensnared in a seductive trap. She doesn't want Trey’s protection, but she finds herself wanting the man again and again. From the moment they meet, they have a powerful sexual bond that can’t be ignored. Together, they must destroy the pendant. Caught by her the scars of her past and her fear of loving, Rylie knows the only thing she can do is walk away from the man she’s fallen for. Can she convince Trey it’s the right thing for both of them?

Trey grabbed her by the wrists, and she struggled. “I can’t let you go. I won’t.”
He danced her back against the wall, slowly, seductively. Rylie felt her mouth go dry. “You’re not supposed to touch me.”
“I can’t help it. Maybe I like touching you. Maybe I want to touch you. Maybe you need me to touch you.”

Wednesday's Word of the Day!

Trust...

My heroines have a hard time trusting the hero in the beginning. Building trust takes time. I have to remember not to rush the relationship and give trust time to take root. In One Hot Night, Samantha no longer trusts men after an ex nearly kills her. Austin tears down her wall by coming on strong. Had he not, she probably would have run the other direction. He knew what she needed and showed her how to love again. I love it when my hero and heroine fall in love. It always surprises me that they are able to overcome so much to be together.

Have a great day! Go have fun! Afterall, it is hump day! :o)

Fabulous Friday!

I'm so glad we're home from the hospital. My 9 year old had an upper endoscopy yesterday. They took biopsies to see how treatment is going for his eosinophilic disorder. Severe food allergies cause his entire esophagus to close. It is a genetic disorder, and he will never grow out of it. You can only treat it. Between all three of my boys, we do three to four scopes a year.

It's great to be home! Now, the only thing left to do is pick out a bravery gift for him. He wants an I-pod or a kindle fire. What to do...

Edits...

My first edits were sent back today for Stolen Moment, Enslaved & Enticed 1. It's a wonderful sense of accomplishment and relief when you get through that first round.

Tomorrow, my nine year old has surgery on his esophagus. All three of my boys have an autoimmune disorder where severe food allergies cause their entire esophagus to close. So, we'll be at the hosptial all day tomorrow. I'll update later in the evening to let everyone know how things go. :o)
