Knotty’s

Local. Physician. Mysteriously. Murdered.

The headline caught the attention of everyone at Knotty’s, a high end hair salon owned by Gary Turner and Gordy Baxter.

A detective out to prove his worth bumps Gary to the top of the list of suspects just because of a little white lie.

Gary and his buddy Gordy had dreamed of opening a bed and breakfast as a side business to their bustling cardiology practice, but that dream landed flat on its butt when the house they purchased was teeming with termites. They lost a pretty penny on that little venture.

Instead, they opened a hair salon, Knotty’s, where Gary is the head stylist. It’s a time sucking money pit, and the murdered doctor agreed to help them out but later reneged, forcing Gary to make a secretive deal with an eccentric friend. But that friend is mysteriously found dead as well.

If Gary killed the doctor as well as his friend, he would be off the hook for paying them back. But Gary is no murderer. It’s not in his nature. Or is it?

There are suspects aplenty in this murder mystery… a bitter ex-wife, a vengeful ex-companion of the male persuasion, and a number of pretty boys the slain doctor called friends.

Excerpt:

Gary and Gordy flipped a coin to decide who would turn the lock. Gary won, of course, with his lucky two-headed silver dollar. With Gordy right behind him, Gary cleared his throat and flipped the switch, instantly flooding the room with white lights that twinkled with specks of blue, green, purple and pink.

“Damn, Gary! This homage to disco you’ve created could cause a stroke.”

“I will take that as a compliment,” Gary retorted, continuing to survey his domain.

That was nearly a year ago. Gary and Gordy had talked for years about opening a side business to their bustling careers as cardiologists. Gordy thought Gary was crazy when he talked of opening a salon. “Do you know anything at all about cutting and styling hair?”

“Of course I do. Well, I’ve watched. Okay, I grew up around it. Plus, I do know what looks good on me,” he said, as he ran his hand through his short, styled locks. “And you know how I love a good hair product. With my own salon, I can get anything I want… wholesale!”

Gordy shook his head but decided to give it a chance. Naming the salon caused a bit of a tiff between the lifelong friends. Gary wanted to name it Twisting Turner or Baxter’s Buns, but Gordy preferred something a little more staid, like No Fuss Beauty Salon.

“Gordy, my man,” Gary said, as he took him by the arm and led him around the sparkly salon, “with no fuss, there is no beauty,” raising his voice with each syllable.

“Well, it’s got to have a name,” Gordy retorted, none too happy that his idea had been outright rejected.

“And it has to be sexy, stunning, and jaw dropping, just like me,” Gary added, crossing his arms.

Brainstorming led to sleepless nights, name calling, and one time the two friends spent two whole days avoiding each other. Finally, they decided that since Gary was the face of the salon and the one who had gone to the effort of becoming a stylist, the name of the salon would be his choice, no matter how tacky.

“Hmm,” Gary said, as he stroked his imaginary goatee. “I’m thinking… I’m thinking… Scissors.”

“That’s it? Scissors?”

He gave Gordy a sneer. “Blades?”

“That sounds like a place to get sliced and diced.”

“Coronary cuts.”

“You’re joking, right? We’re not at the hospital.”

“Hmm,” Gary murmured, as he stared out the window.

“Damn it to… I’ve got it! The salon will be named Sassy’s, a salon experience.”

“But, Gary, that implies that Sassy is a person and the salon was named after that person.”

“Hmm… so it does, so it does. Give me another minute.”

Gary’s mind was flooded with ideas, though many of his ideas were not appropriate for a salon or any other professional establishment.

“I’ve got it, yes indeedy I do. The name of the salon will be Knotty’s. Underneath the name, the words ‘A Cut Above’.” Gordy liked the idea. It was naughty in a good way… a different spin on the word. A Cut Above was the perfect addition to the main name. Their salon would be a cut above the rest. Gary would demand it.

And their dream became a reality.

“She’s a witch! Your daughter was born with the witch gene!”

By chance, a geneticist isolated a rare gene in little Kennedy Taylor… the ICTII35 gene. The doctor said, “She’s a witch! Your daughter was born with the witch gene!” Mrs. Taylor had no time to ask the doctor anything. He was out of the room in a matter of seconds. “But I’ve never heard of a witch gene,” she called after him, but he was long gone.

Kennedy certainly is special, and she takes no crap from anyone, especially the young men in her life who find her beguiling. There was one man pestering her so much, sending her flowers and candy, determined to make her a married woman, his married woman, that she waved her wand in his face and he took on a goat-like appearance, with horns and all. Kennedy’s personal assistant, Truman, had to hide the guy in the cellar until Kennedy could research how to undo what she had done. Thankfully, the goat-man didn’t remember any of it.

But that was child’s play compared to her latest stunt. Attempting a new spell, Kennedy ends up killing a man, but can’t remember what she did with the body. Once again, her faithful assistant, Truman, must step in and clean up her mess. This time, he’s digging through dumpsters trying to find where the little witch hid the body, while the woman who runs the inn next door secretly films it all.

Inside the Wagon

Inside the Wagon-200x300

Click to Purchase from B&N

It started with a simple game…
Now the man who lay there like a god was her husband.
His father was ruthless, and she feared her husband would be just like him.
But she had no idea what awaited her inside his wagon.

Excerpt:
“A word of wisdom for you, Luca,” she said. “In marriage, patience will be your best friend. Patience grows love and understanding. Quick pleasure leaves anger and resentment.”

It took Luca a moment to understand what she meant. She spoke of their wedding night, of their time in bed together. He frowned at her, uncertain of what to say. Virgins were new territory to him. The only carnal pleasure he had received in the past was from the well worn bodies of prostitutes.

“I understand,” he said.

“Good,” Jaelle said.

In another part of the world, Annie sat in her room and stared at herself in the mirror. She could still hear her father’s words from when she was a child. He had called her an unwanted child because she had been orphaned and left on their doorstep. She was not quite noble, yet not lower-class, but nonetheless the daughter of a nobleman simply because of the man who had adopted her. If she had been left on the doorstep of a pauper, she would have been shipped off to the circus or hung.

Soon… she would be the wife of a man she had never met!

A Most Peculiar Wedding

PeculiarWedding-200x300

Click to Purchase from B&N

It’s a second chance for love in the life of the bride, but her little slice of wedding paradise quickly becomes a disaster when a few eccentric couples arrive. She doesn’t mind sharing her remote venue, but she had no idea such drama would come along with them. One look at the snorting piglet being fed a bottle and she realizes she never should have allowed her groom to plan her wedding. What was she thinking!

Excerpt:
“My baby girl is living in Urinetown.” She covered her nose and shook her head. “For God’s sake, will someone open a window or a can of super strength Lysol in this toilet bowl?” Then she saw Nate and her anger came to a boil.

“You invited Nate? I thought this was just going to be the three of us… a family dinner,” she whined.

Rock took her coat and hung it in the closet. “Nate is family now.”

“Not until that piss stain puts a wedding ring on my baby’s finger.”

“Be careful what you wish for!”

“Where are you going, Nate? That’s my daughter’s bedroom.”

“I was looking for the bathroom. I really don’t spend a lot of time here,” he laughed. He turned around, knocked on the door further down the hall, and was greeted with a blast of steam. “You didn’t tell your mother that I was living here with you?” he whispered.

Rock watched the two lovebirds with a curious eye. He glared at the sloppily discarded jacket, but it wasn’t until he noticed the basket of folded laundry on the floor that he put the mystery together. Their little girl was living a life of sin with her slacker boyfriend.

The overly protective mother turned to her husband. “Did you have any idea this young man was cohabitating with our daughter?”

“I think I might have figured it out when I saw the rainbow of jockstraps lying on top of the folded laundry. You couldn’t miss them,” he giggled and shrugged his shoulders.

Leah is new to Texas and naïve to the lustful desires of men. The handsome man with thick, dark hair takes her breath away, but she doesn’t know his dark secrets and the past that nearly destroyed him. He wants her, in his life and in his bed, but eventually pushes her away and into the arms of another man. When the new man learns the identity of the man who betrayed the young, beautiful woman who is now his, he vows to do anything to prevent her from learning the truth. It would ruin him. She must never know.

Excerpt:
The two newly minted lovers did not awaken until the sun’s rays made their way through the thin curtains of the east window. Leah woke first, alarmed that she had spent the night in the arms of a stranger.

Cam kissed her a long lingering kiss, but he knew that soon she would be leaving for Houston to begin her new life. As she dressed, he watched her every movement.

When she stepped into the hallway, she was immediately confronted by him. He was dressed in nice pants and a crisp white shirt, and was holding a tie in his hand. Leah swore her heart stopped at that moment. She stared at the tie in Camden’s hand and watched as he swung it back and forth.

He turned to her, smiling at the look of fear on her young face, as he stood with his hands on his hips, confronting her.

“Are you afraid of me, Leah?” he asked.

“No, I wanted you,” she whispered.

He leaned down and touched her face. “That’s sweet, honey, but who did you really want to be with tonight?”

“You… I wanted you.” She took a deep breath and wondered what happened to the nice man she had met earlier. He now seemed different, unbalanced, and she needed to get away from him.

He wanted to hate her, but how could he?  He felt protective of the naïve young woman.

When Janie is sent to live among the Sioux, she is met by a proud native, as well as his sarcastic remarks and smirky grin.  She wants to hate him, but she needs him to survive on the reservation, where life is filled with hardship.  Beneath the hard exterior and demeaning words of the proud man lies a warrior with a heart of gold, but he will never allow the privileged young white woman to know the truth about him, or let down his guard in her presence, no matter how much she needs or wants him.  He has other intentions.

Excerpt:
“You want me to leave, don’t you?  You have done nothing but give me a hard time since I got here, with your paleface comments, your smirky grins, your blame, and your backward thinking that I can’t do anything.  You are a male chauvinist pig!”  Janie could see him clench and unclench his fists and she knew she had gotten to him.

He turned around, pulled her to him, and locked his legs around hers.  He placed his strong hands on her face and bent her head back.  “You have no idea what I am thinking.”

She stared at him, her face smooshed between his warm brown hands.  He towered over her and she felt as if she were shrinking by the second.  The blue eyes that stared up at him were kind with their sparkle and their naïve brilliance, and he wished he could build a protective shield around her and keep her for his own.

“Kevin?”

“What… what is it now, Janie?”

“My face is squished.”

He wrapped her long brown hair around one hand and gently kissed her parted lips.  He hadn’t meant for it to happen, but it had, and he didn’t want to stop.  He kissed her with passion, and in a way that was new to young Janie.  He couldn’t get enough of the woman whose skin was as white as snow.  When he felt the slender arms on his back, he held her closer.  When he finally found the strength to pry his lips from hers, he held her to his chest and kissed her neck.

Janie turned her head to breathe, and thought about how she had watched him sleeping earlier that day when she stopped at the door to his room.  He had worn absolutely nothing, with no blanket covering any part of him.  He was perfect… all of him.  His chest was broad, his stomach like a washboard, his legs as thick as tree trunks, and what lay between them was meant to be hers and no one else’s.  She had tiptoed quietly by, wishing she were not a virgin.

Alpha Dawning

Erotic Fiction

Erotic Fiction

Micha has a secret life doing things that she wants no one to know about, but when she begins to get noticed by the rich and powerful, there is one man unwilling to share the fame that he has so far enjoyed alone, and he has planned something very special for the young vixen to get rid of her once and for all.

Excerpt:
The home of Mike Shier was huge and Micha thought she was lost as she wandered from room to room. Then she heard the shower in one of the rooms. The door was open and she looked inside. It was Jamal. Micha could see the silhouette of him and she wanted him. He demanded obedience, but Micha wanted him to be her master. The water stopped and Micha froze.

“Who’s there?”

Micha said nothing.

Jamal asked louder, “I said, who’s there?”

“Uh, it’s just me, Jamal.”

The door slid open. “It’s just you, eh?”

Jamal knew what Micha wanted. She had obeyed him like no other woman had and he wanted to make her beg again. “Come on in, Micha. You worked up quite a sweat today, didn’t you?”

Micha slowly walked toward the shower. As soon as she was within range, Jamal grabbed her, pulled her into the shower, and slid the door shut. “You know about the contract, right?”

“What contract?”

“Mike couldn’t wait to get his greedy little hands on you, honey. Your buddy, the one who set this whole thing up, gets fifteen percent of a one million dollar deal if you sign for a full length adult film with Mike Shier Productions.”

Micha had no idea what Jamal was talking about. “What do you mean?”

“You think it was your idea to get into this business?”

“Yes, it was.”

“No, my dear, Mike knew you couldn’t resist. He’s been watching you, and you have the look, the desire, the greed,” Jamal said. “Mike has a good sense about people and a good head for business. All you have to do is remember that I was here first, I am the star, and you are secondary. You will do as I say. Got it?”

“Sure, Jamal,” she answered curtly.

“Good, now get out of here.”

Micha quickly left the shower and ran to find her clothes. She drove away with a smile on her face. “I’m as good as in, and if I hold off a little longer, I will be the star, the main attraction at Mike Shier Productions.” Jamal would be her obedient man just as soon as Mike Shier called.

Erotic Romance

Erotic Romance

Young women everywhere dream of being chosen for the exchange program, and Cheri is no exception. A trip to foreign lands is her ticket to freedom, wealth, and regality if she plays her cards right. Broke and in search of fun, meaning sex, her ultimate goal is finding a wealthy husband, but Cheri isn’t looking for just any kind of wealth. What Cheri is after is royal wealth and the status that goes with it. Her guide for the program is handsome and exudes sensuality, but Cheri learns a little too late that this is no ordinary program. This is an exchange of questionable intentions.

Excerpt:
Wrapped in Jav’s hairy chest, a peaceful loving sensation fell across her tired eyes before sensual and sexual thoughts began drifting through her mind. The masculinity of the gentle man with whom she shared a bed aroused her and she held tightly to her lover as she drank in his intoxicating scent.

Cheri’s steady exhalations against Jav’s chest were causing his body to awaken. He lowered his face to hers and gently kissed her lips, and she surrendered to his touch. Jav made no demands of her that night, though the closeness of their nakedness was nearly irresistible. Jav’s reluctance to take her completely confused Cheri. “It is not time, mon Cheri,” he whispered.

Cheri awoke to the aroma of fresh pancakes and looked up to see her Prince Charming preparing breakfast just for her. “Good morning,” she said sleepily.

“Breakfast is served,” Jav declared, with a smile as brilliant as the stars. He had planned a wonderful day for the two of them, but Cheri wondered about the others who had accompanied her.

“Where are the other women?”

With yet another dazzling smile, Jav gently touched her cheek. “Sometimes it is not our place to ask.”

Cheri felt like a child at the reprimand, but she took it in stride. After all, she was a stranger in this man’s land and she had freely chosen to be a part of the exchange program.

******

When she was naked, he looked at her as if he were admiring a sculpture. He smoothed his hands along her body, outlining her curves. Then he stood away from her and undressed slowly as if he were unveiling a prize. “Sit upon the bed, Cheri,” he said. Cheri slowly slid onto the bed, and within seconds he was readying her for his fullness. Cheri watched his eyes but the Prince was focused on himself, watching as the woman beneath him took him easily and eagerly. Cheri gasped, but this was the kind of man she needed. He was regal and wealthy and extremely well endowed. She would have this man, one way or another. But the following morning she awoke in the bed she shared with Jav, who was sleeping soundly beside her. The night with the Prince was over.

Hostage

Mystery/Suspense/Erotic Romance

Mystery/Suspense/Erotic Romance

LizBeth’s life somewhat resembles a circus, running from place to place with a challenging career and a young daughter. When she manages to swing some much needed time off, she and her daughter take a cruise, where Lizbeth meets a man who is intriguing and mysterious. Oozing charm, he easily wins her heart. Lizbeth has no idea what she has stumbled into with the handsome stranger, until the night when her daughter is nowhere to be found.

Excerpt:
Kevin’s wallet was on the dresser and Lizbeth opened it to picture after picture of Grant and in the very back was a photograph of Sara in a cap and gown. It was her college graduation photo. Lizbeth was certain that Kevin had said the girl was still in college. She tucked the photograph back inside Kevin’s wallet and lay down on the bed. How long has he known Sara?

******

As Sara opened the door to her suite, she glanced down the hallway to see if Lizbeth was watching her before opening the door all the way. She quickly closed it behind her and went to Kevin. “Kevin, wake up. It’s Sara.” She gently pushed his hair back and lightly pressed her lips to his forehead. “You’ll be okay, my darling. We’ll be home very soon.” She unbuttoned her blouse and unsnapped her bra, pulled the blanket around her and pressed her naked breasts to Kevin’s chest. “Isn’t this nice, just the two of us?” Kevin managed to open his eyes just a little, but Sara was blurry to him. She looked at him and kissed his lips. She didn’t mind that he was too out-of-it to kiss back. She never minded. She loved the feeling of his lips on hers. She reached a hand down to Kevin’s jeans. He was always ready when she touched him. But tonight he was not and she knew that it was because of Lizbeth. She had taken everything from him and Sara would not allow that to happen again. “I need to go now, Kevin.” She pulled the two cups of her bra together with a snap, buttoned her blouse, and tucked the blanket around Kevin. The medication had really knocked him out tonight. A feeling of fear engulfed her. He had been drinking earlier with Lizbeth. Of course he had been. Lizbeth had gotten him drunk and taken advantage of him and now the man was barely conscious. Sara would die if something was to happen to Kevin, but if it did she could easily pin it on Lizbeth. She was the newcomer.
