A Writers Desire – Caroline Walken

My desire is that you to fall in love…
I want to write words that bring that rush of emotion to the surface.

I hope to instill passion for life in you, evoke excitement and wander lust.
You honor me if my words cause you to cry or feel the bitter tang of rage.

Meet me in places that exist solely in my mind.
Know that I will age and change, there will come th... Read more of this blog post »

"As someone "with a past" this book scared me a little. While I already have a plan in place that if I die, a friend will come to my house and get rid of certain things so my family doesn't find them - I never thought about what to do if I am 100 a..." Read more of this review »

“Stepping towards her, he warned himself this was wrong. Being drunk and being this near to her was playing with his mind; he could not help it she got to him. With the music in the background the moon illuminating the field, he was like a moth to a flame. Her hair was laying in soft curls, the wind moving it over her face; he brushed it back to look into her eyes better. In the darkness, he could not tell but he felt her eyes had to be glowing with those unusual gold highlights.

“She is jealous of you, a girl that is naturally beautiful without trying.”

Maggie frowned slightly shaking her head dismissing his suggestion; Jon lifted her chin and lowered his face to kiss her.”

“From the book Ell's Double Down -
He waited but when she remained with her back to him, he grew concerned. She finally squared her shoulders and seemingly gathered inner strength then turned around. She raised her head and her hair fell away revealing her face fully. His heart clinched. The bruise marred an otherwise perfect plane; he scowled. She greeted his gaze with a look of pure defiance from red-rimmed eyes.
Smiling slightly she confirmed, “Don’t worry handsome, he didn't tarnish my brass!”
He started to approach but she brushed passed him. Regaining his composure he called to her, “You should put something cold on that.”
She reached into the small ice chest pulling out a bottle of wine; she turned and inquired, “Will red work?”
Caroline Walken, Ell's Double Down

“A museum employee walked through interrupting the conversation; he nodded to the couple before disappearing again. Nora hooks her arm with his leading him to a new painting. Stopping before a portrait of a young girl, she identifies this as the one she restored for the Art Academy. Oss glanced around ensuring their privacy then squeezed her elbow. She looked up at him from beneath feathered lashes and the outside world ceased to exist. Brushing his lips to hers, the fresh scent of her fragrance filled his mind. Raids, mobsters and crooked cops receded to distance recesses in his mind. Soft lips caressed his, his mind exploded in color.

Two lonely people were falling in love; only the girl in the portrait bore witness to this extraordinary event.

~ The love story of Oss and Nora”

Caroline Walken, Reggie's No Limit

“This is a wonderfully sexy, sweet adventurous novel. I'm not normally a fan of romance novels, but this was more than just romance. This was a combination of romance, women's literature, chick wit and it's fun and edgy. You'll fall in love with Ell and Reggie.”
Fan from Amazon

“From my new WIP, Behind the Fan.

“Come with me.” His breath is warm; his lips lightly touch her ear, it gives her a delicious tingle. This seduction is no accident.
“Baby we can be anywhere, we will start new. Dottie, all I need is you.”
She opens her eyes, he turns when he feels the flutter of her lashes. She expects another plea instead; he kisses her. Soft and slow his lips pulling her down deeper into a sweet chasm. This assault on her proprieties will be slow and subdued. He has after all proven that he is a patient man. Those musicians’ finger will trail on the column of her neck first. The touch is warm, soft nevertheless deliberate. Do the top buttons of her blouse come undone on their own accord or has he banished them? She is never sure but before she can register the affect, he lightly strokes the swell of her breast. It is sinful; no matter how often she confesses her weakness to the priest, she is never stronger. Her body willingly betrays her; she will roam her hands down his back, beyond the tapered waist to the hard orbs of his backside. She herself is no innocent, she revels in his plead for more. She is going to hell she wished she cared for her soul.
“Honey leap with me, we will land safely I promise you.”
“Oh God, Nicky you know it is never this simple.”
Nick leans back enough to look into her eyes; she feels he can see damn near to her soul. She prays he will stay but knows her appeal is futile. He feels colder already, it does not matter how she tries to hold on he is already leaving. Leaving her behind.”
