#MidWeekTease: “Poor guy seems nervous…” #MWTease #IntheArmsoftheLaw

MWTease15Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

This week’s tease comes from Illusions.

Isabella Knowles has kept her relationship with Brady Jacobs a secret from everyone including her family. Now she’s starting to realize that perhaps she’d been only fooling herself to think that she could get away with no entanglements…

Her current lover had just heard about a night, albeit long ago, between her and another man. She couldn’t help but wonder what he thought, if it would bother him. From the angry look on his face when she finally met his eyes, she had her answer. It bothered him a lot.

illusions-lrg“I hope I am not interrupting anything crucial, detectives.” Brady’s detached tone raised her ire.

Who was he to be pissed? She didn’t care about his past relationships and what she and Connor didn’t come close to that. But one night of unbridled, crazy sex with Connor didn’t even compare to having sex with Brady. She wouldn’t give him the satisfaction of knowing it, though.

“What brings you down here?” With nonchalance, as if she had no cares in the world, she made her way to her chair and sat down. She tossed the Gazette on top of the desk and took a sip of her coffee.

“Have a seat, man.” Connor motioned to the small loveseat in their office, then moved to his desk and sat on the corner of it.

Poor guy seems nervous, she thought with amusement. It was a bit awkward, but really, they were all adults.

Brady looked from one to the other, holding her gaze for too long. She looked away. She picked up a file from her desk, hoping he would get on with why he was paying them a visit.

“I came to tell you I had a glimpse of Melody Mason in the grocery parking lot.” Brady didn’t seem too happy about sharing the information but they hurled questions at him.

“What do you mean? What did you see?” Her voice seemed louder than her partner’s. “Did you see the unsub? Anything of his face?”

“Whoa, whoa, you two.” Brady held up a hand, staying their questions and offered Connor a file. “Everything I know is in there. After I got up about six this morning and had a shower, I sat down to get my thoughts on paper. It’s all there.”

She hurried to Connor’s side, placing an arm over his neck and reading over his shoulder. This could be the break they were looking for. Looking up, she saw Brady watching them. There was a naked look in his eyes, a raw intensity she had never seen before.

When he glanced at her arm on Connor’s neck, she quickly removed it, cursing at herself for letting his obvious upset get to her.

God, one would think he was her boyfriend. She couldn’t breathe. Oh, God

#MidWeekTease ~ “..she’d shoot first then ask questions.” #MWTease #TiedDown

MWTease15

Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

~~~~~~~

This week’s tease comes from TIED DOWN, the short bonus story at the end of ILLUSIONS (single title & 4 ebook collection of In the Arms of the Law Series).

Here, Brady is getting ready to pop the question to his woman, and braces himself for her reaction…

He pulled out the fourteen carat, white gold, diamond engagement ring he had designed. She would be the last woman he’d ever ask to marry him. Without her, no sunshine would exist in his life.

KHAnthoCoverFullebook

Putting the ring back in the box, he snapped it closed. Gathering the toys he’d need for the next few hours, he exited the kitchen.

Crucial to his plan…getting the jump on her while she slept. Her guard would be down, and shocking his tough-as-nails cop didn’t happen every day. The element of surprise would be on his side.

If all went well—if she said yes—it would be one helluva story to look back on. He came to a stop in the doorway of his bedroom.

There slept the love of his life, her wavy red tresses spread out across his pillow, the sheets tangled around her sleek and gorgeous legs. Christ, even sleeping, she stole his breath.

As he moved into the bedroom and to the foot of the bed, he made a mental note to take her Glock from the bedside table.

He wanted to live to tell their grandchildren about how he proposed marriage.

Knowing her as he did…she’d shoot first then ask questions.

#MidWeekTease ~ “…evil, it never stops.” #Awakenings #MWTease #Suspense

MWTease15

Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

~~~~~~~

This week’s tease is from my upcoming suspense title, AWAKENINGS.

Here, Detectives, Alicia has already been suspended from the force for her actions (in last week’s MWTease) and she now has her cousin to deal with, when they receive terrible news.
(C) Kacey Hammell,2016
Alicia opened her mouth to tell her to mind her own business when her cousin’s cell phone rang. Saved by the bell. Glad for the reprieve even though adrenaline boiled in her veins as if in a fight, she turned away and grabbed her empty gun holster off the couch. She put it away on the top shelf of the armoire near her front door.
“Alicia, you know you’re not to blame for what happened to Monica. It wasn’t your fault.”
Alicia should have known Brady would tap into everything she might feel and think. There was no way to hide from him. A seer, he sometimes had a sense of what others were going through—horrific or joyful. But without him, she wouldn’t be alive right now. She owed him her life and someday she hoped she’d be able to repay him.
Her hand on his arm, Alicia smiled into his clear-blue eyes. “I know. I do, but it’s really mind over matter isn’t it?” She lowered her hand and gave him a weak smile, then turned her back on KH_Awakenings_V1_400X600him. “This too shall pass…someday.”
“Ali….” Whatever Brady was about to say, Isabella’s curse rent through the apartment, interrupting him.
“Fucking Christ! Some days are just fucked. God dammit!”
With a flurry of movement, Isabella grabbed her coat from where she’d thrown it on the sofa and jammed her arms into the sleeves.
Alicia breathed a sigh of relief, glad Brady couldn’t lecture her on all the reasons she shouldn’t blame herself.
“Izzy, what is it?” Brady walked to her and clasped her shoulders with both hands. Instantly, Isabella’s movements slowed to a crawl and she heaved a deep sigh.
Alicia’s heart clenched at the display before her. Brady was the best thing to ever happen to Isabella. He was the calm in her soul, the root beneath her that kept her holding on. Alicia was envious of the connection the two had.
Once upon a time, she’d fantasized of her own knight in shining armor coming into her life. Now, she figured love and happily-ever-after were not all they were cracked up to be. She couldn’t keep herself safe. How the hell would she ever keep a husband or children safe in the world she lived in?
“Alicia?”
Pulled from her own thoughts by the sound of Isabella’s voice, she lifted her gaze to her cousin’s face. From the sadness and anger within her gaze, the call she’d received couldn’t be good.
“What is it?”
“Connor was on the phone. I have to get over to the Hopeful. Hannah’s been hurt.”
Alicia’s breath hitched at the thought of her friend, Hannah Isaacs, being injured. The Hopeful Shelter took in the homeless, helped battered and abused women seek another place to live, to escape an abusive husband or significant other.
Hannah helped so many women in their town, and even in surrounding areas, she deserved a medal for her goodness and her constant caring of others. She was a godsend to many children, abused women, the homeless.
“What’s happened?”
“I shouldn’t even be telling you this….”
“Save it, Isabella.” Alicia moved closer to her cousin. “You can’t give me vague answers and then just quit! We’re friends. What’s happened to her?”
With a hard sigh, Isabella met her gaze. “She was found this morning by one of the shelter’s volunteers. I don’t have all the details yet, but she’s on her way to Memorial Hospital. She was beaten and possibly raped.”
Alicia grabbed the back of the couch.
Dear God—evil, it never stops.

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 124th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.


This week’s theme  — One Sexy Girl

Today I’m sharing from ILLUSIONS again. I shared this last week, in a fuller version, but it fits this week’s theme so much better. Here, Brady is admiring his sexy girl, sharing his thoughts of her beauty.

©KaceyHammell, 2016
Amid the mountain of white sheets and comforter haphazardly spread out from their sexual romp, Bella sat with her back to him, staring out the window.
She looked like a goddess among the clouds. What she saw and what she was thinking he didn’t speculate. He couldn’t.
The vision of her stole his thoughts, and his breath.
Transfixed by the beauty of her golden skin, tanned from exposure to the sun, and her auburn-red mane hanging down her back in a thick, tumbled mass, his heart felt the familiar pinch her nearness caused.
He’d dated many beautiful women in his time but Bella, for all her toughness, seemed more beautiful and fragile to him when she was like this.

#MySexySaturday from Illusions #MSSAuthors #MSS123 @MySexySaturday

 

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 123rd week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.


Today I’m sharing from ILLUSIONS. It’s the morning after for Bella & Brady, and Brady is seriously smitten–no matter how much he tries to fight it.

©KaceyHammell, 2016
“Where did you go, to the springs to get the water, Jacobs? Dying of thirst here!”
Laughing, Brady headed back to the hallway. He picked up the bowl and glasses and hollered, “I’m coming, I’m coming. So impatient, baby.” His voice died away as he walked over the threshold of her bedroom and came to a standstill.
Amid the mountain of white sheets and comforter haphazardly spread out from their sexual romp, Bella sat with her back to him, staring out the window. She looked like a goddess among the clouds. What she saw and what she was thinking he didn’t speculate. He couldn’t. The vision of her stole his thoughts, and his breath. Transfixed by the beauty of her golden skin, tanned from exposure to the sun, and her auburn-red mane hanging down her back in a thick, tumbled mass, his heart felt the familiar pinch her nearness caused.
He’d dated many beautiful women in his time but Bella, for all her toughness, seemed more beautiful and fragile to him when she was like this. When no one was watching, she would get the look of a scared, lost child. Her mask fell away.
She was stunning and confused the hell out of him when he caught her unaware as he did now. He wanted to take away her worries and fear. He wanted to protect her and take away her pain. He’d do anything for her.
God, Jacobs, you got it bad. Like hell I do.
“What are you looking at, Brady? You going to stand there all night with my treats, or you gonna bring them on over here?”

Mid Week Tease: “…a match made in heaven…” #MWTease #IntheArmsoftheLaw #CoverReveal

MWTease15Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Sandra Bunino for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

~~~~~~~

This week’s tease — and Cover Reveal! — comes from Illusions, which has been off the “shelves” for a couple of years,  will be revised some and re-released in January 2016!

Isabella Knowles likes to keep her private life just that. However, her cousin likes her drama, and driving Izzy nuts…

(c) Kacey Hammell, 2015
“All right, you have my oh-so-undivided attention. Spill. What’s got you so
riled you look like a caged lion?” Isabella wanted to laugh at the look of pure pissed-off that Ali sent her way, but it would only prolong the discussion.illusions-lrg
“You could at least pretend to care.”
As she opened her mouth to reply, Alicia raised her hand, cutting her off at the knee—or tongue, so to speak.
“While you feel it’s no big deal, your father does. He thinks you have finally seen the light.”
Isabella couldn’t hold in her chuckle as she used two hands to make quotes in the air over ‘seen the light.’ Good God, even the Kardashians didn’t do drama as well as her cousin.
“You know, you really need to get the dumbfounded look off your face. Have you not woken the hell up yet today?”
“Jesus, woman, cut to the chase and let me get the hell outta here.” Dropping her foot to the floor, Isabella stood, ready to walk out and slam a door somewhere in total frustration. It was nine a.m. Too fucking early to listen to this shit. “When you get done making a spectacle of yourself, cuz, let me know and we’ll talk. Until then, save it and kiss my ass. I have work to do.” With a scowl, she made her way to the door, but Alicia’s words stopped her in her tracks.
“When did you start dating Brady, Izzy?” she asked quietly.
Heart stopping in mid-beat, Isabella whirled around. Her mind fogged. “What did you say?” she asked, shocked. Air rushed from her lungs, leaving her breathless.
“When did you start seeing Brady Jacobs?”
Taking a deep breath and feeling the interrogation of her life was on its way, she said, “I’m not seeing anyone. You know that.” She laughed, only the act held no humor whatsoever.
“Have you seen the paper today? Page four.” Alicia tossed the paper in question across the desk.
She could see the Gazette opened to what she could only assume was page four. With what seemed like lead feet, she walked the few steps to the desk.
A feeling of dread washed over her.
Caught and guilty ran through her mind as she read the headline that had taken her cousin by storm. Daughter of One of Trenton’s Finest Makes Time with City’s Favorite P.I.
Isabella’s only thought was that the photo of herself and Brady Jacobs looked rather cozy as they walked down the street. His arm, slung over her shoulder, and her laughing face upturned to his, as if they were a match made in heaven.
Too bad it was the furthest thing from the truth.

Releases in January!!
