About this author

With most of the hours in the day taken up by a part time job and the full time occupation of raising and schooling two kids, writing is somewhat of an indulgence, but it's the indulgences that keep us sane, right? When not otherwise occupied, like most writers, reading is my relaxation method of choice, and you can find my reviews at Kuriousity.com and Dark Diva Reviews to let you know what I liked (and occasionally, what I didn't). And just in case there are an extra few minutes in the day, I also help out the admin team abelong to a writer's critique group: Dreaming in Ink. After all, idle hands and all that.

Okay. So, me being me, I kept meaning to talk about this book as release day approached, and never seemed to find the time. Well, it’s release day, and it’s time, whether I have a few spare moments or not.

SO here it is, Scars on his Heart.Scars on his Heart

Mostly, I want to make this post because this book requires a very special thank you to Elizabeth North (and all the Dreamspinner team) but most especially El...

Good Book. I knew I would have difficulty with this one, since I have a weak reading constitution for slave/abduction stories, but I got through it, and it was really well written, and, I thought, worth it. I still love these guys.

“I can be afraid with you and still know I'm safe. That's the difference. That's why I love you.”
Jaime Samms, Better

“What I can't do," Aadon said after a minute, as he traced his fingers down those pale, marked arms, "is ever let you go." He lifted Jesse's chin and looked into his soul-stealing brown eyes. "I am too far into you to ever get out. I'll have to move in with you, because I already need to breathe you like air."

Jesse touched just the tips of his fingers to Aadon's cheek, awed by the continued acceptance. "I cannot believe I ever thought you were too tongue-tied to be a lawyer.”

“It’s your Dom’s job to look after you, protect you, to give you a safe place to express your desire to serve him.”

“Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.”
Derek Walcott, Collected Poems, 1948-1984
