“You wanted to talk,” she said softly. “So, talk.”
“Ain’t some heartless bastard that’d stand aside, let you be brutalized,” he finally muttered. “That what you think o’me?”
“No, I don’t think you’re a heartless bastard. Quite the opposite, actually. But you didn’t answer the question.”
Derrick was chewing his thumbnail, and he finally broke eye contact, looking down at his boots. “Don’t know what the fuck you want me t’say.”
“Tell me why you brought me here.”
“’Cause you was alone.”
“That why you kissed me, too? Because I was alone?”

Release Date: November 27, 2020 Publisher: Extasy Books Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance, four flames An Interview with Seelie Kay: Q. Why do you write romance?

Book Release: Harmony’s Embrace by Amber Daulton
Dear God. His heart slammed harder. He’d died and gone to Heaven. Harmony stretched her arms above her head and danced in the middle of the living room. Her hips pulsated with the beat of the music. Twisty locks of her hair bounced around her shoulders.
The Lakehouse: A Horror Story (@KA_Raines)
Turning, she looked toward the house. It was just as she’d drawn. Just as she remembered. She had been here before—of that, she was almost certain. Or perhaps it only felt so familiar because she’d invented it years ago in her mind. Perhaps it had always been there in her head, lying dormant.
#MFRWHooks ~ Seal the Deal (@KA_Raines)
This could be it. He could die out there trying to find a man and a little girl who were probably already dead, and she would never see him again. She hated this—that she still felt. This was exactly why she had avoided people for so long. She didn’t want to feel.
The Well: A Ghost Story (@KA_Raines)
I’m not sure what propelled me to open the door to her room, which was the one to the right of the parlor. The same old patchwork quilt, faded with age, was spread neatly across the double mattress. A single cross adorned the wall above the wrought-iron bed frame, the only piece of décor on…
#MFRWHooks ~ Clear as Crystal (@KA_Raines)
There was no way this man was that attractive. He had to be hiding a flaw beneath that tailored suit of his. A hairy stomach that would put Bigfoot to shame. His twin brother who couldn’t be surgically removed due to intricate vein placement. I’m pretty sure I saw that on a medical show once.
#MFRWHooks ~ Predator and Prey (@KA_Raines)
Her heart hammered as she waited…. She was going to have him. She was finally going to have him. They had things to discuss—things that wouldn’t wait much longer—but they would consummate this thing between them first.
#MFRWsteam ~ Ball’s in Her Court Now (@KA_Raines)
She forced her breathing into a steady rhythm, feeling, strangely, both annoyed and aroused—annoyed that he had the ability to arouse her with a simple look. No man should have the sort of power over her. “And no one forced you to come after me. I can take care of myself.” His hand squeezed her…
#MFRWauthor ~ Let’s Just Get Through Halloween, Mmkay? (@KA_Raines)
MFRW’s Week 41 Blog Prompt: “Pre-Christmas Catalogue Blizzard. Hate them or love them?” Okay, I’ll admit it. I wasn’t 100% certain to what, exactly, this topic was referring. It’s the word “blizzard” that threw me. I’m guessing we’re not talking about a literal blizzard, since a Christmas Catalogue blizzard seems like the stuff of nightmares (not…
#MFRWauthor ~ Corn Mazes & Bike Trails & Pumpkin Patches – Oh, My! (@KA_Raines)
While during the spring I sat outside with my daughter while she played on her slip ‘n slide and swing set, by summer the heat and mosquitos had largely driven us indoors. But, oh, fall, how do I love thee! I can sit on my patio and enjoy the trees again! My kids and I…
