I'm visiting a tropical beach and it's good to have the time away from my computer (not that the Muse lets me stop writing). In the meantime, I'll be offering posts of CLOUDBURST COFFEE & SPA until the next Cloudburst title comes out in mid July. 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 is facing off her abuser, but the guy isn't taking the hint.
“Lenny. What brings you to Cloudburst?”
“That should be obvious. Didn’t you get my flowers?” He gave her his patented slick smile.
The flowers she’d tossed that morning. No wonder they’d seemed poisonous.
“Oh, those were from you? The note didn’t say.” She didn’t match his smile. “What do you want?”
“Just what my note said. I want to make up for lost time.” His pale eyes flared with lust and desire, but it only turned her stomach.
“I said no, Lenny. We broke up two years ago and I meant it. There was no time lost.”
“Aw, come on, gosling. You know we had a great thing going there.” He tilted his head with a half-smile. “I know you’ve missed me.”
A tight smile quirked her mouth. “If I promise to miss you, will you go away?”
The half-smile never slipped, but anger kindled in his eyes. Good, now he’s getting the message.
“To be absolutely honest, I haven’t missed you.” She dropped her smile. “When you ignored my needs, treated me like your personal plaything without regard for my well-being, I made it very clear we were done. Hell, I even moved away. I’m pretty sure that’s a good sign I’m finished with you. So no, we didn’t have a good thing going, and I don’t want to start up again.” She patted the counter. “But thanks for stopping in.”
Don't turn your back, woman! ;) 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....
