Welcome to Writer's Wednesday!

Each week, I plan to feature one of my many writer friends. Hope you enjoy it. Maybe you'll even discover a new author or two.

Welcome Lynn LaFleur!

Overboardby Lynn LaFleur
 Christopher Pritchard has been looking forward to his best friend’s visit for weeks. He bids goodbye to his live-in girlfriend, Joni Wagner, and takes off with Lance Fitzgerald for a three-day fishing trip.  
Lance has been in love with Chris since their college days. Hiding the fact that he’s bisexual wasn’t easy during college, yet Lance had done it because he didn’t want to lose Chris’ friendship.
As night falls on the water and the beer flows freely, talk turns to sex. The talk turns into action the next morning when Chris awakes to find a naked and aroused Lance in his stateroom. Instead of ordering him out of the room, he invites Lance into his bed.
 Chris is sure Joni is his happily-ever-after, yet he can’t deny the attraction he feels for Lance. He can accept his new feelings for Lance, or push him away and lose the best friend he’s ever had.
  * * *
  Lance lifted the case of beer off the dock and handed it to Chris on the boat. “You sure one case is enough?”

 Chris grinned. “I already have a case on board.”
 “Smart man.”
 “I remember how you can put away the beer.”
 “I remember having help from you with that beer.”  


Chuckling, Lance reached for the grocery sacks. He and Chris had stopped at the supermarket on the way to the marina. Chris said he’d already stocked the galley cabinets, but wanted to walk through the aisles in case he forgot something. Lance hoped they’d catch a salmon they could prepare for dinner. To be sure they didn’t go hungry, he’d bought four huge T-bones. It never hurt to have a back-up plan.
 “Here,” Lance said, handing the sacks to Chris. “That’s it, except for my duffel.”  

“You didn’t need to buy steaks, man. Where I’m taking you, the salmon will jump in the boat. We won’t even have to use our rods.”
 Chris turned with the grocery bags in his hands. Lance stared at Chris’ ass in the tight jeans. He could think of a way to use his “rod” that would be better than catching fish.
 With a sigh, Lance collected his duffel bag and climbed on the boat. He had to be out of his mind to torture himself this way. Three days on a boat with Chris. He could look, he could drool, but he couldn’t touch the way he longed to. He couldn’t take Chris in his arms, tell him he loved him, and had since their freshmen year in college.
 Unrequited love sucked.
 He’d be a pal to Chris, just like he’d done for the last fourteen years, instead of the lover he so desperately wanted to be.

It's the Victoria Day weekend here in Canada, more commonly known as the May 24th weekend (or May Two-four) even though it rarely falls on that date. It's the unofficial kickoff to summer here. I'm looking forward to some nice weather and some sunshine.

Enjoy your long weekend.

Happy Victoria Day to all my Canadian friends!

 I'm thrilled to announce that Lily's List is now available! Fans of steamy small-town romance will love the third book in the sexy Summersville Secrets series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author N. J. Walters!

Ready to explore her fantasies . . .

When Lily Summers was left to raise her son alone, she threw herself into her work as a florist and secretly began writing erotic romance novels. Relying solely on fantasies about the impossibly sexy Carson Granger for material, the single mom has a long list of sexual scenarios she needs to research to make her stories catch fire. When Carson discovers the list and offers some hands-on help, Lily’s immediately aroused by his primal power and the elemental attraction that ignites between them, but she’s terrified of surrendering control to a man she’s wanted for so long, especially one who’s younger than she is.

Desperate to show her so much more . . .

Carson always knew that Lily had shut herself off from men after a bad marriage, but he also knew the quietly sensuous florist had a secret side, and he wanted to be the man to tap into that reserve of passion. When he discovers her hidden wish list, he knows it’s his chance to initiate her into a world of sexual abandon before revealing a secret of his own. As they indulge in each new item on Lily’s list, she can’t deny the burning desire and need beating inside her, and with tender patience and sexual finesse, Carson is breaking down her barriers and drawing one step closer to turning her short-term explorations into a lifetime of devoted pleasure.

This is a fully revised edition of a book originally published as Lily Blossoms.

CRYSTAL'S MANY REVIEWERSsays, "The Salvation Pack is one that I am glad to get to know and love the way the author created them and the cast of characters within it!" ~4 stars


ALL ABOUT ROMANCEsays, "I enjoyed Wolf on a Mission and it left me in a comfortable spot to either pick-up the earlier books or continue forward with the series if I choose. Introducing two young members of the pack in Reece and Sage gives Ms. Walters an easy way to expand the series and give her readers the chance to see where older characters end up years later. Very rarely will I recommend a book so far into an established series, but if you’re in the mood for a good shifter romance then this one is worth picking up."

STEALING SHADOWS is the book that started Kay Hooper's Bishop/SCU series back in September 2000. I haven't missed a single one of the mysteries featuring FBI agent Noah Bishop and the special crime unit of psychics that he works with. Fascinating, suspenseful, and downright scary at times, these books will hook you and keep you turning pages.


What if you can enter a madman's cruel mind as he plans his vicious crimes? What if you can see the terrified face of his prey as he moves in for the kill—but you can't stop his frenzy once he strikes?

Psychic Cassie Neill helps the L.A. police catch killers—until she makes a terrible mistake and an innocent child dies. Cassie flees to a small North Carolina town, hoping that a quiet life will silence the voices that invade her unwilling mind. But Cassie's abilities know few boundaries. And she's become certain—as no one else can be—that a murderer is stalking Ryan's Bluff.

It's his fury that Cassie senses first, then his foul thoughts and perverse excitement. Yet she doesn't know who he is or where he will strike. The sheriff won't even listen to her—until the first body is found exactly where and how she predicted. Now a suspect herself, she races desperately to unmask the killer in the only way she knows: by entering his twisted mind. Her every step is loaded with fear and uncertainty...because if he senses her within him, he'll trap her there, so deep she'll never find her way out.

In Stealing Shadows, Kay Hooper introduces FBI agent Noah Bishop, whose rare gift for seeing what others do not helps him solve the most puzzling cases. Now, Bishop's adventures continue in two new electrifying tales of psychic suspense.

Beware of what you see. It's dawn when the police arrive at the murder scene. The victim is propped against a tree, her eyes still open, her head tilted, her lips parted in a silent cry. Just as Cassie Neill predicted. Just as she saw while she was inside the killer's mind. The killer knew she was there. And next time he won't let her get away.
