hand cups my chin, turning my face to his, smothering my lips with a fierce
sexual tension I wasn’t prepared for. His tongue invades my mouth with
delicious need, his kiss the essence of fire burning ice. I melt beneath the
dominance, succumbing to the passionate force of his lips moving over mine.
When he pulls back, I’m caught in a haze, my body screaming for more. We’re
silent in the darkness. Eyes lingering on me, his black irises study me in the
bit of light cast from the stage. I feel captured in them as if I’m drowning in
dark water, unable to see the surface, and my only choice is to sink and
welcome what awaits me. Thunderous drums pronounce the woman’s orgasm, and my
attention returns to the stage, my entire body humming with sexual desire. Through
another act, the men fight, and by the fifth act, and the plot’s thirteenth
night, both men lay with the woman. My cheeks flush red, my entire body alert,
my nipples pert, and my pussy soaked with arousal. I watch, entranced as the
three of them act out their lovemaking, each man taking her on either side.
Biting into my lip, I fist my hands in my lap as a breath escapes my parted
mouth. Glancing over at Ryker, his gaze is more than his usual intensity. I see
the heat in his own cheeks, the sexual tension raging just below the surface.
He licks his lips in a way that’s all too inviting, and I imagine myself moving
into his arms and him kicking everyone out, so he can take me on the table.

She was meant to be mine—I knew it the moment we met. Too bad I’m about to kidnap her.
As a decorated CIA agent, I know better than to kidnap a former colleague’s sister and hold her hostage on a ship in the middle of the ocean. The agency tends to frown on that sort of behavior. But desperate times call for desperate measures; I have my reasons, and they’re good ones. I’ll be forgiven with a slap to the wrist—at least for that part of the mission.
Until I tie Reagan Jones up and can’t resist her when she presses her tight little body against mine. That’s probably not so forgivable.
Then there’s the issue of falling in love with her and refusing to let her go once the mission is over. Definitely not forgivable.
I have no idea what I’m thinking—we can’t be together; it’s not safe for her. I’m a spy, and she’s a feisty art instructor from Fargo. Not exactly the perfect match.
Or is it?
Excerpt: Habits by Anna B. Doe
Nicole Roman is on a quest to track down her brother. She believes he’s reverted back to his pyromaniac tendencies and she is determined to find him, before someone gets hurt. It’s been eight months with no success. Deciding the town’s pastor could give her some confidential guidance, she goes to the church.
Pastor Scott Davidson is willing and able to give her the advice and support she needs. But he will have to reign in his attraction to the delightful lady. She needs assistance, not some guy lusting after her.
Nicole decides to trust the hunky pastor-slash-volunteer firefighter. Scott is her best chance to find her brother and get him the help he needs.
Scott promises to help, but his reason is very different than Nicole’s. This fire bug needs to be found and stopped at all costs. Even the chance for a relationship with the lovely Nicole.
That’s a darn good question. As a former techy I’ve done everything from computer programming to international trainer. Prior to college I had lots of different jobs and activities that were so diverse, I was an anomaly.
None of that qualifies me for writing novels. But I have some darn good stories to tell and a lot of imagination.
I have lived in Colorado, Hawaii and currently Washington. Going from two states with 340 days of sun to a state with 340 days of clouds, I had to do something to perk me up. And that’s when I started this new adventure called author. Joining the Romance Writers of America and two local chapters, helped me learn the craft quickly and has been a ton of fun.
My family consists of two grown children, their spouses, two adorable grand-daughters, and one grand dog. My favorite activity is playing with my grand-daughters!
When the girls can’t play with their amazing grand-mother, my interests are reading and writing, yay! I started reading at a young age with the Nancy Drew mysteries and have continued to be an avid reader my whole life. My favorite reading material is romance in most of the genres, but occasionally other stories creep into my to-be-read pile, I don’t kick them out.
Some of the strange jobs I have held are a carnation grower’s worker, a trap club puller, a pizza hut waitress, a software engineer, an international trainer, and a business program manager. I took welding, drafting and upholstery in high school, a long time ago when girls didn’t take those classes, so I have an eclectic bunch of knowledge and experience.
And for something really unusual… I once had a racoon as a pet.
Join with me as I tell my stories, weaving real tidbits from my life in with imaginary ones. You’ll have to guess which is which. It will be a hoot!
