Motivation and More #Writing #Romance #TopPicks


Happy Monday! 

Let’s get the new week started with some Motivation …

Always try and you shall succeed!!
So let’s conquer the heck out of today, and all week long!!

I’ll be starting the week by jumping back into writing my WIP, the second in the “Stirred by Love” series, which is the sequel to Stirring Up Dirty. I am enjoying the characters a lot. Such fun, and dynamic people who are surprising me. When I completed Stirring Up Dirty, the 2 characters for this book — Glory & Drew — I believed them to be more volatile and not as strong. Both are showing me that things are never what they seem.

I finished final edits late last night for GUARDING HIS ANCHOR, the 2nd in my Canadian Muscle series (sequel to Guarding Midnight). This is Frank and Charlie’s story, and while not really a challenge to write, they had moments of difficulty. A lot of history to get through. I’ve also set things up nicely at the end of Guarding His Anchor for book 3! *g*

Last week was a lovely week of surprises. Not only did a couple of books get reviews, but I received three Top Picks for those stories! I’m thrilled and love that the reviewer loved them so much.

Cover Me is a Top Pick at Night Owl Reviews!!
Cover Me and Payback’s a Bitch are both a Top Pick at The Romance Reviews !!

cm-toppickstrrtoppickI’m very blessed and ecstatic for these stories/characters to receive such love.

It looks as though another storm is heading this way tomorrow. My small area of Ontario has certainly had a lot of snow / freezing rain this season. I’ll be glad to see it end. However, it makes for some great writing! Nothing like being snowed/iced in to get some good words down.

Have a super week ahead, and I’ll see you next Monday!

Happy reading! xoxo

Writer Happenings 9/14 #Musings #Writing #Books

Good morning all!


I hope everyone had a great week.

Personally it was productive for me. Went through a huge fall cleaning of our bedroom. Who knew the filing cabinet could hold so much paper! I think there were unnecessary paperwork in it that had been there over a year. I have to remind myself every 3-6 mths now to clean that out. We all get so busy and throw filing in a drawer and forget about it. I went through all my children’s old crafts and gifts for the hubby & I through the years. Boy is there a lot of it! But I filled a tote. Will be nice to pull it out one day when they are all grown and with families of their own and they can reminisce about the “old days”. *g*


Okay, so what’s ahead/happening?

Book News this week

Yes indeed!! Gavin needs your vote! From Sept 11 to 30, Gavin is up at
The Romance Reviews Reader’s Choice Awards nominated for Best Erotic Romance in Romantic Suspense/Action-Adventure/Mystery Category!!

Vote for him by clicking on the blue banner at the top of his page …. HERE.

Gavin needs at least 50 votes to make it to the next round! Let’s help get him there.

Movie Mention this week – We watched Unfriended last week. OMG. I think the nearly 2 hours of it sucked out my brain cells. I don’t know why I ended up finishing it, but it is NOT a movie I would recommend. Hard on my eyes too! There was no resolution IMO and while the story of it could have been better, I do believe cyber bullying is a major crime nowadays but this movie did nothing to help the cause at all.

Reading Mention this week — I’m in the middle of LETHAL by Sandra Brown. I love this author immensely, and this book is so good. I have trouble putting it down!

That’s all for now! We’re having a special dinner here tonight so I have to get cutting veggies and marinating meat!!

Have a super week!!

Happy Reading!












#MySexySaturday from Guarding Midnight #MSSAuthors #MSS109 @MySexySaturday

LynnSexySaturday_bannerHello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 109th 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’s theme is…

My Sexy Girlfriend


I am sharing from Guarding Midnight. It happens to be up for your nomination at The Romance Review’s Readers’ Choice Awards! I hope you’ll consider nominating it. Simply login to TRR and click here.

This is the first time Gavin sees Midnight, who does become his girlfriend, after a long journey of ups and downs, danger and suspense. Hope you enjoy!!

A blur of red and black rushing out on stage caught his attention. A woman skulked along at the front of the stage, bending, twirling, and angling her hot, sexy bod. She would no doubt capture every man’s attention when she performed.
Gavin swallowed hard, his eyes peeled to the sexy display in front of him.GMtoppick
Red sports bra and tight spandex shorts barely contained her curvy, tanned body dancing at lightning speed around the stage. Long, toned legs stretched, and her body twirled the pole as if it was made for her. Though she wore barely-there spandex, she didn’t give off a stripper vibe. Her thighs clung to the metal, showing off strong muscles. Without moving her legs from the pole, she let go with her hands and planted them firmly on the floor. She moved like a worm as she stayed suspended, the pole between her legs as her arms held her up. Her tight, large breasts were so tempting. His mouth watered. The woman was skilled and in-tune with her body and with what she had to offer.
And boy, if she didn’t have a lot to offer.
Her breasts were definitely more than a handful, which was just how he liked them. Small, medium, large, and bountiful…as long as he could stick his dick in between the mounds and fuck them till his load burst all over a woman’s chin, lips, chest, neck, and in her hair. He loved to see his pleasure all over a woman.
Her long, dark, wavy hair clung to her face and shoulders, spinning around as much as she did. Bends, kicks, gymnast moves…he was impressed.
With a flick of her hair, she turned and glanced back over her shoulder, her hips swaying to the distinct bass. Facing the empty seats, she covered the stage, her movements skilled and quick. He watched, transfixed at the many steps, and could only guess at the training this woman needed to have in order to make it look so easy.

About Guarding Midnight:
Romantic Suspense/Contemporary/Erotic Romance

Canadian Muscle …
When Desires Need Protecting.

No one knows sacrifice better than former Army Sergeant Gavin Bennett. He’s witnessed firsthand the emotional, physical and mental toll of being caught in the crossfire. Being a bouncer-slash-bodyguard may not be Gavin’s dream job, but he’s willing to do just about anything to help out family. When Gavin reports for his first day of work, he quickly discovers a woman who threatens to crack his legendary cool.

Shree Walker is on the run from a dark past she tried to shut away. Battered and broken, a happily ever after doesn’t exist for her. Ready to start fresh with a new life in a new city, she is happy dancing at the Vixen Club. She’d be even happier without the presence of the prickly new bouncer who won’t let anyone or anything get past his carefully guarded defenses. He’s a distraction she doesn’t need. And a temptation she can’t resist.

When Shree is kidnapped by the criminal mastermind hell-bent on taking the club at any cost, Gavin has to make a decision. Hold tight and continue to keep Shree at arm’s length. Or break down his walls and take a chance on something more powerful than them both: Love.
