WeWriWa: Tick, Tock. Counting Down to Tomorrow’s Release Day!



There’s something about running against the clock that fuels all the senses, making things crisp, clear, and alive on an adrenaline high. There’s only so much time to pack everything in before the window of opportunity is gone. That’s where I am, frantically putting all the final pieces in place before PRINCE OF HONOR goes live tomorrow. That’s where my heroine is in today’s excerpt as she spends one last night with what could have been.


Turow Terriot, who would have thought? 

For now, she happily held that secret close. For the moment, he was hers to hold and enjoy like there was no tomorrow, because for her there probably wouldn’t be. 

She’d let him rest and recover, but not for long, too aware of the clock ever ticking. She’d cushion his heavy form for now, then demand as much as she could from it throughout the hours of the night. She’d let him fill body and mind with delirious pleasures, selfishly taking everything he could give, because his strength and confidence fueled hers, and she’d need every ounce of it to get through what was to come, leaving him behind, again, as her restless life’s ambitions drove her to greet her fate without a whimper. 

She felt him stir, gradually, inexorably, forcing her from grim thoughts to heady anticipations. She accepted and returned his kiss, his touch, his hurried demands, becoming aggressive challenger and responsive lover beneath his increasingly urgent claim. Lost to what once could have been, but would never be. Except for this night.

Would I trade places with my heroine, leaving her to deal with my last minute details while I enjoyed her farewell tour? Let me think . . .

. . . Still thinking. Hmmm, that’s a tough one.

While I follow that lost train of thought, here’s another look at PRINCE OF HONOR before this first book in the House of Terriot series goes live.



The hunter becomes the prey, a prisoner to his own desire . . .

Turow . . .

Strong, silent man of integrity content to serve his new king as a prince in the turbulent shape-shifter House of Terriot. A tracker and relentless hunter, he’s used to running trails alone until charged with returning a traitor to their mountain top home to face the unforgiving judgment of their clan. On the run with the bad girl he’s loved forever, the choice between duty and desire has never been more difficult . . . or deadly.

Could the bargain made to save their lives become reality?

Sylvia . . .

Manipulative schemer or victim caught between a mother’s ambition and a rogue prince’s lust for power? Trust is almost as foreign as the idea of love, but to save herself from certain death, she must risk both on the good man who deserves them . . . from someone worthy. Trapped by the only one who believes in her goodness, will she betray him and run for her life . . . or stay and destroy him with a long hidden truth?


Deadly, Damaged, and Delicious!
Brothers too H.o.T. to Handle!
