There are no words…help if you can.

It has been said that the romance community is the most supportive and generous of all the genre communities. It is.

Last week one of our beloved authors, Jackie Barbosa, lost her seventeen-year-old son in a car accident. Although most of us will never be able to understand the depth of her and her family’s pain, Jackie’s loss is also our loss. We grieve for her and with her. 

Today, in support of Jackie, the very talented author, I will be featuring BEHIND THE RED DOOR  which will be on sale for $2.99 until 4/1 at Amazon, iTunes and Barnes and Noble.

You can find a list Jackie’s  books on her site  http://jackiebarbosa.com/books.html .

She also has two free short stories  – THE REIVER and NINE LADIES DANCING (both are historicals)

A memorial fund has also been set up in her son’s name. Details to donate can be found here. Any…

What signifies Spring to me?  I live in Texas so its Bluebonnets.  That and baseball.  I’m originally from Oklahoma but I have lived in Texas for most of my life.  I live in East Texas now where the trees are already budding and my allergies are running amok now.  But you know what?  I wouldn’t live in Dallas again.  Too much smog and I was constantly sick with something.  Where I live now…I can walk outside and take a breath and feel connecting to the earth.  Can I deal with my allergies?  Sure I can.

Here is a “deleted” scene from my debut The Couple.  Enjoy…

Heroine’s POV from The Couple:

Maybe my girlfriend’s think I’m cracked.  Trying to hook up with a cowboy in the last place I need to be…a bar.  They just don’t understand that I’m truly lonely and need a night where I can forget, be pleasured to where I’m either begging for him to stop because it’s too much or for more.  I have needs and I can’t help that they have men at their beck and call 24/7.  This is my life not theirs.  I haven’t been tied up in a while and tonight is the night.

Where is that cowboy that I keep seeing in the bar?  He almost had me last month, but I left him hanging and hard.  He He!  I don’t plan on doing that this time.  I want his jeans around his ankles, me on my knees and him screaming my name when he comes.  I want my hair pulled, spread eagle on his bed and screaming his name.

Now where is he?  Oh wait, there he is and damn, he is hot!
