I'm back from the tropical beach and refreshed from my vacation. I'm offering posts of CLOUDBURST COFFEE & SPA until the next Cloudburst title comes out in mid July, which should be soon. Keep your eyes out for that.
CLOUDBURST COFFEE & SPA is available now. So grab your cup of coffee and settle in for some relationship building. Moira's best friend and business partner brought her into the massage room to relax her after she met with her abuser. Kieran is Moira's younger brother. Talia is the first one to speak.
“What is it with the long lost men in your life showing back up?”
Moira shook her head. “I don’t know. But I didn’t ask them to come back. Particularly not Lenny. He says we’ll be together again. Talia, I can’t. He’s messed up and sick. But he says I’ll get used to him.”
Talia patted her knee and squeezed. “Breathe for just a bit. That’s it.” She waited for Moira to calm a little more. “So, here’s the deal. There’s no way your brothers or me will let him get anywhere near you. Hell, I bet Aiden will help in that department.” She snapped her fingers. “There’s an idea. Why don’t you tell Lenny that you have a new boyfriend now? That should give him pause, right?”
Moira bit her bottom lip, her mind going back to Aiden’s plea to stay near her and help her. Maybe he could be more helpful than she originally thought.
“I don’t know.” She bit her lip. “Lenny gave me the crazy vibe when he came in. You know, the obsessive type who won’t take no for an answer? What if I tell him I’m with Aiden and he comes after him? I don’t want to put anyone in danger.”
Talia grimaced. “But if you don’t, you could be hurt. At least give Aiden the choice. Please, Moira. I got a bad feeling off you before I brought you in here.”
“I don’t know...” Could she trust Aiden to step up? The last time he’d been confronted with conflict, he’d disappeared.
“At least let me tell Kieran and Lt. Fitzroy.”
“He’s more than just an ordinary cop, Moira. Didn’t you notice his energy signature?” Talia sighed dreamily. “I just like sitting next to him at the library or bus stop. He could calm a hurricane.”
Yup, there's more to this "small town cop" than meets the eye. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list, the Snippet Sunday Facebook group, and the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group. A few of my favorites are, P.T. Wyant, Karen Michelle Nutt, Veronica Scott, Jessica Subject, Kathy Griffith Karysa Faire, and Iris Blobel.
Here's the blurb for CLOUDBURST COFFEE & SPA:
Moira Callahan knows a thing or two about fresh starts. Second chances are a different story…
As an empath synced into the energies of spaces around her, Moira always understood what people needed, and tried to provide. But after escaping an abusive D/s relationship, she's ready to make her own rules as the owner of the Cloudburst Coffee & Spa. Life is good. Until her first love shows up in town seeking his second chance.
Aiden Westmorland escaped Cloudburst to learn to control his sexual needs, but he left behind the one woman who calmed his statistical empathic abilities. Now he has a chance to rekindle the fire they'd shared as teenagers, with the flavor of BDSM. But earning the trust of an emotionally scarred woman after his long radio silence is easier said than done.
When Moira’s past comes to Cloudburst, threatening the life she’s fought to rebuild, Aiden insists she go to the police. But her former Dom has a past of his own, and he isn’t willing to let go so easily this time....
