Which Alpha Athletes Are The Sexiest?

 MaybeThisChristmas

Are skiers the ultimate Alpha heroes? Sarah Morgan, author of Maybe This Christmas, explains why these daredevils are the most irresistible athletes.

The men’s downhill is one of the most thrilling and glamorous of all sports. Dramatic mountains, sun glinting off snow, and the sheer adrenaline pumping thrill of watching athletes in prime physical shape ski a near vertical slope at death defying speeds, every ripple of pumped muscle visible through the ski suit. This sport is full of daredevil personalities, like Tyler O’Neil, my super hot hero in Maybe This Christmas, who fitted right in with his fearless approach to life.

Undeclared

 

Bestselling author Jen Frederick’s hero Noah from Undeclared and “Undressed” is a former soldier who battles his way into the MMA. The author shares why fighters are the hottest athletes around.

The MMA fighter is intimately acquainted with the human body. He knows what areas are the softest and most vulnerable, where the body needs a light touch and the parts that need more pressure. He knows all the pressure points that can bring a woman to her knees. And the best kind of MMA fighter doesn’t mind spending a few hours on his own knees to become well acquainted with his woman’s body.

 

It's-In-His-Kiss

Jill Shalvis, author of It’s In His Kiss, makes the case why surfers are the sexiest Alpha athletes.

A few sexy things my sexy, alpha surfer Sam Wyatt from It’s In His Kiss does for his heroine Becca: goes on spider duty when she needs it and only kinda of laughs when she does the spider dance, hires her to run his office and respects her enough to let her have her way, in the bedroom he knows when to be aggressive and push but even more important he knows when to be gentle and tender. And lastly but not least, he’s got her back, always.

 

TheYearWeFellDown

Sarina Bowen takes on heroes on ice to prove, once and for all, that hockey players are the most delicious athletes. What makes them the best?

Hockey players understand First Touch. In hockey, “first touch” refers to the way a player intercepts the puck, and is then immediately ready to pass or score. Adam Hartley, the hero of The Year We Fell Down, learns “first touch” the hard way. After he and his best friend Corey celebrate his birthday in a way that neither had planned, their night together is all he can think about. Will he pass… or score?

 

TheHookUp

Author Kristen Callihan leaves it up to her hero Drew from The Hook Up to give readers a first hand look at why footballers are the most seductive athletes of them all.

 

As quarterback, Drew is the team’s leader. He must take charge hand have a good handle on every situation…

 

His mouth is hard, his eyes glittering darkly beneath half-lowered lids as he comes for me. I find myself leaning back, like I’m afraid of him, when really it’s all I can do not to beg him to hurry up and touch me. He stops at the foot of the bed and looks me over, an insolent, languid perusal that I should find insulting but only makes me burn hotter.

 

When he speaks, his voice is rough, quick, sharp. It scrapes against my heightened nerves, shouts in the quiet room, even though it’s a near murmur. “Lift your top.”

Romance Junkies Reccomended Read – 5 Ribbons

“For beautifully written, memorable military romances, Ms. Ashby has quickly become my go-to author. Her innate storytelling gift reaches for your heart and touches it, leaving you with chills at the possibilities. Though relatively new as an author, with only three books under her belt thus far, Ms. Ashby packs a wallop. Her experiences and knowledge of military life shines through as the story unfolds. Filled with authentic details, heart-pounding action, believable characters, emotion-packed issues, spirits, loyalty, healing, PTSD, sizzling sensuality, tender romance and deep love, this story is sure to be treasured by its readers. An unputdownable tale, this is one you will certainly want to read more than once. Although this book can be read as a standalone, I am sure that after reading it, you will be searching for the first two stories in this series, FORGIVE AND FORGET and FORGET ME NOT. Also watch for the fourth book in this series, UNFORGETTABLE. I know I will. In my opinion, NEVER FORGET is a beautiful tribute to the victims of 911. I enjoyed it so much that I have made it a Recommended Read!” – RJ Reviewer Dottie, read the rest of the review

Author Interview:

Please tell us a little bit about your current project? Thanks for inviting me, Dottie. And thank you for the lovely review of Never Forget. Here it is in a nutshell:

A Naval officer exchange program between the U.S. and the U.K. adds new meaning to the term “brothers-and-sisters-in arms.” When U.S. Navy’s “Nick” Nikolopoulos heads to the HMS Atlantic for a year to avoid his ex-fiancée, he finds himself falling for his British assistant. However, Royal Navy officer Gwyn Pritchard, finds not only forbidden love when she replaces him aboard the USS New York, but she also finds…ghosts. With 7.5 tons of World Trade Center steel melted into the New York’s bow, Gwyn is faced with spirits of 9/11 victims. As the daughter of a famous Welsh psychic, she learns they need to complete a mission in order to pass to the other side. When both ships rush to liberate American and British hostages in North Africa, can the spirits provide the right intelligence to help the Marines save the prisoners? Can Gwyn help the ghosts move on to the light? And can the two couples find the love they’ve searched the world over for?

 

How did you come up with the idea for Never Forget? A Royal Navy officer gave me the idea for the officer exchange program and has helped authenticate my British ship, along with my Brit-speak. As to the spirits, my series is set at Naval Station Mayport (FL), so when I heard Mayport was getting the USS New York, I became fascinated by the idea of World Trade Center steel melted into her bow. I considered the idea of spirit characters and figured if I could empower them with some control over the ship, the crisis, and their own destiny, they could move from victims to victors.

Did it scare you to write about such a controversial topic as 9/11? Did you worry how it would be received by your fans and the public in general? My concern was for the families of those lost on 9/11. I sat on the idea for several weeks, questioning if it was okay to write the book. Then it came to me that if I didn’t write this story, somebody else would, and I wanted to ensure that it was written not sensationally, but with the respect it deserved. I am a Navy veteran, Marine Corps daughter, Navy wife, and mother of an Iraq and Afghanistan combat Army vet. I felt I was qualified—and with the victims’ families always foremost in my mind—I jumped in with both feet and wrote straight from the heart.

I did not read victims’ personal stories in advance so I would not be influenced as I wrote. But once the first draft was done, I meticulously checked names and back stories to ensure my characters did not reflect any real people lost on 9/11—and I had to make a few changes. Anything that does reflect real people lost on 9/11 is purely coincidental and I apologize in advance. Just so you know, I’ve worked on this book for two years and I still get goose bumps.

The spirits in your book are so touching and your military men and women so believable. How did you come up with the characters for this book?

Again, the 9/11 families were my priority as I developed my spirit characters, so I worked to show the ghosts in the very best light. The spirit leader, Helen Monroe took on a life of her own! An elderly British war bride—with a bit of Mrs. Doubtfire in her—she radiates positivity and promotes healing throughout the book. I tried to represent different heroes, such as first responders and airline crewmembers, along with plane passengers and World Trade Center workers. Following is one of my favorite lines in the book: “Flight attendants stand by their word when they take a vow to watch over unaccompanied minors until they are received by the proper family member. Kelly had not let Jeremy out of her sight for over a decade.” (Yes, there is a child spirit who rips my heart out every time I read the book, yet he plays a very important part in saving the day.)

As to my military characters, I often start them out based on real people I know and admire—then they morph into somebody else. My Marine Corps hero, Adam, is loosely based on my late father, who was a WWII Marine with plenty of emotional baggage. Interestingly, I was able to work out some of my own issues through healing Adam.

In your books, you often write about service men and women dealing with PTSD. What are your thoughts on this condition that seem to affect so many?

Survivor guilt is one issue. The idea of “taking a bullet for someone,” or “no man left behind,” illustrates how strongly military personnel feel responsible for their fellow service members. To lose a brother or sister in battle would be devastating enough, but when the question of “Did I do all the right things to protect him or her?” or “Should I have been on that mission?” or “Why him and not me?” plays through their heads, it’s difficult to move forward.

Witnessing a horrific battle situation or experiencing an IED explosion can bring on classic symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress: Nightmares, flashbacks, panic attacks, inability to sleep, work, or maintain healthy relationships. I’m going to hazard a guess that the majority of the military PTSD sufferers are male, since more men serve in combat. Knowing that a typical man’s greatest fear is appearing weak in any way—be it physically, emotionally, financially, intellectually, competitively, etc. asking for help for PTSD can be seen as a sign of weakness.

I recently met Staff Sergeant Shawn Garrett, (USMC-ret) who worked out his PTSD issues through writing fiction. 500 Miles an Hour debuts in October from jabarijaser.com. Shawn had me as a fan for life when I read this statement about him: “Writing is cathartic for him, allowing for the painful memories to flow from his brain and heart, down his hands, out of his body, and onto the page.” His book broke my heart and then I cheered for his hero as he sought healing for his PTSD. And how did Shawn heal his issues? By baring his soul in this book. He wasn’t afraid to open up and share painful stories in order to find “normal” once again.

Since you began writing these books, what has been your greatest reward to date? Receiving the following email from a female reader: “I am a Navy surgeon stationed in Afghanistan. I wanted to thank you for writing Forgive and Forget. Reading romance novels keeps me sane.” It was accompanied by a photograph of her reading my book, while sitting in a field of brown rocks—with nothing but more rocks and a high compound wall covered in concertina wire in the background. This woman’s job is to put our Marines back together. And she’s thanking me? This was exactly what I had in mind when I started writing my books: to offer a brief escape to our women down range and at sea. And to portray our women in uniform as heroines—which they most definitely are.

I understand that part of your royalties go toward Fisher House Foundation. Can you tell us a little about this organization and your reasons for supporting it? In thanksgiving for my son’s safe return from war, I donate half of my royalties to Fisher House to benefit those families who have not fared as well as mine in the War on Terror. Fisher Houses provide lodging for military families at military hospitals, while their service member is being treated for illness or injury.

Any place we can find you in person or on the net this month or next? I am appearing on ten other blogs this month—both American and British, which is exciting—along with five signing events in the Jacksonville, Florida area. Readers, please check the events page on my website: heatherashby.com and join me if you can for any of those venues. May I strongly suggest visiting theromancedish.com on Friday 9/12 for a more detailed, poignant story about my friendship with Shawn Garrett and his hopes for helping other Marines heal.

Thank you for inviting me, Dottie, and thank you again for your awesome review and Recommended Read for Never Forget.

 I’ll be spending 9/11 with a tissue box, a notepad, and a marathon of 9/11 footage on TV. It helps me empathize with the victims’ families, understand my characters better, and never forget. I’m curious how your readers honor 9/11. Or perhaps, they have a special story about hearing the news on September 11, 2001. I have a digital copy of Never Forget for one lucky commenter.

In Mercy (Harlequin; $7.99) the hunt for a killer leads to a battle between justice and desire.

 

For U.S. marshal Rourke Kincaid, there’s the law…and then there’s his law. When the two don’t agree, he always trusts his instincts. A killing spree has gripped the Northwest, showing a strange connection that only he sees, and now the old rules of justice no longer apply. Forced to turn rogue, he goes deep undercover to track his mysterious female suspect to a quiet, unassuming café in the wild, isolated mountains of Beartooth, Montana.

But encountering Callie Westfield complicates his mission in ways he never expected. As suspicious as she seems, her fragile beauty and sexy charm get to Rourke. Then the gory crimes begin anew. With his heart suddenly at war with his instincts, he has only two options. Either turn Callie over to the law, or put everything—including his badge and his life—on the line to protect her.

Author Q&A for B.J. Daniels Mercy

1.) Can you tell us a little bit about your upcoming release, Mercy?

I’ve never done a serial killer book because I like murders that are more personal. When I began writing MERCY (I write by the seat of my pants without any idea where the story is going until the characters tell me) I saw the opening and thought, “What is this about?”

The next thing I knew, I was on the trail of a possible serial killer with my rogue U.S. marshal Rourke Kincaid. I loved his perseverance (something writers know well.)
He took me for quite a ride before the book was finished. I ended up in the hospital at 3 a.m., 20 degrees below zero outside, with my first migraine. MERCY, the 5th book in the Beartooth, Montana series, became the book that almost killed me – and my first serial killer book.

2.) How did you come up with the title?

At the end of the first chapter, my killer is telling her victim to “Beg for mercy.” But to me the title is more about having been given mercy (compassion, love, understanding) at some point in our lives and how that makes us the people we are.
When I was doing research on serial killers, I became fascinated by how one person in the same type of family situation becomes a killer and the other person doesn’t.

3.) The cover illustration overlooks a small town. Can you tell us how this cover sets the tone for the book?

I write about small towns because that’s what I know. The Beartooth series takes place in and around a small Montana town where everyone knows everyone else – and their business. But there are always secrets. Also, things work differently in places where everyone knows each other, so I have more leeway when it comes to even how law enforcement operates.

4.) You said that the books that you struggle with the most are the ones that you end up loving the most. Can you talk about the writing process for Mercy?

You mean the book that tried to kill me? I do love this book though because of it. It was hard to write, but they say write what you know. I often write about characters from dysfunctional families. I grew up in one though I later realized there were families a whole lot worse than mine. Instead of becoming a serial killer, I became a writer. We both live in fantasy worlds where we settle scores, get revenge, make those in the wrong get what they have coming to them (at least what we think they have coming to them.)

Where I struggled with MERCY was giving the reader enough information and yet not giving away who the killer really was. I didn’t want any of them to be the killers at one point. I cared too much about them and what they’d been through. I kept telling myself that I was wrong about who I suspected. There had to be someone else who did the killings. Talk about denial.

Also this book took a twist I wasn’t expecting. I think all authors draw on their own life experiences. A lot of me and my life ends up in my books. I grew up with a mother who was…somewhat psychic. It scared her. I often wondered how that ability (who knows how strong it was since she fought it) would shape a person’s life – or torture that person.

So it was bound to end up in one of my books.

5.) Was there a scene in this book that was harder to write than others?

I often struggle with the action scene during the climax. I just feel as if every fight scene has been done. It’s easier to figure out how the good guys get the upper hand than the choreography of the fight.

6.) What was your favorite part of the book to write?

I loved creating all of the characters. I felt I knew them by the end. That’s why I didn’t want any of them to be guilty of the murders. They all wanted to be good people, but they were flawed and struggling with the hand they’d been dealt. We all know it isn’t fair to blame your childhood once you’re an adult, but that childhood is what shaped you and some people fight and fight to overcome it and just can’t.

7.) Can you tell us a bit more about the town of Beartooth, MT and the people who live there?

They are mostly rural people who appreciate where they live and don’t want it to change. They are often suspicious of newcomers. I know when I moved to a very small Montana town eight years ago, people kept asking me why I’d done such a thing. There are always those who dream of going to a bigger city. They are usually the ones who never leave though. So Beartooth and the community around it are people who know each other, who depend on each other and take care of their own.

8.) How do the dual locations of Seattle, WA and Beartooth, MT add to the story?

It’s interesting but when people leave Montana for the big city it is often Seattle. It is surprising how many Montanans end up there because of better paying jobs.
But in this story you have a marshal who is like a fish out of water in a small town like Beartooth. Of the two women in the story, most people go to a big city to disappear but Cassie came to a small Montana town. Laura is a prime example of someone leaving Montana for greener grasses.

9.) How much research went into portraying a serial killer?

I can laugh about it now but a year ago the first week of September I took a whole stack of research books on serial killers and headed for the mountains. I was off the grid for a week and did nothing but read about serial killers. I swear between the grizzly bears that wandered through camp and the serial killer true stories, I had nightmares.

10.) Did things get too real when writing this book?

They did get too real in this book. I remember interviewing Tim Cahill years ago when I worked for the newspaper. He was writing Buried Dreams: Inside the Mind of a Serial Killer, the story of John Wayne Gacy. I remember him telling me that his wife hated it when he came home after interviewing Gacy. He said it was impossible not to bring it home with him and that thoughts of it lasted for years.

11.) Did you base the character of Callie Westfield on anyone?

I base my characters on no one and everyone. I’ve known people who did well in life and others who didn’t. I’ve always been curious about what made them the way they were.

Callie had a classic serial killer background. One characteristic of a serial killer that I found very telling in my research was the person’s relationship with his/her mother. The mother seemed the key.

12.) Can you tell us a little bit about Rourke Kincaid’s internal struggle?

If you have ever loved someone you shouldn’t, then you know what Rourke is going through. Love picks us sometimes, not the other way around. It is hard to go into something like that with rational thinking. You know you shouldn’t for so many reasons and yet when you see that person, all rational thought goes out the window.
Also don’t most of us think love can conquer all? Even as we are getting in deeper, we make excuses. We tell ourselves that we’re fine, that we can get out at any time. Or worse, that the other person will change.

If this wasn’t true, then there wouldn’t be so many bad relationships where the warning signs were apparent before the couple went into it – and yet they couldn’t seem to help themselves.

13.) Who would play Callie and Rourke in a movie?

I would love Amy Smart for Cassie and Alanna Uvbach for Laura. For Rourke…Paul Walker!

14.) What is the best advice you received when writing Mercy?

To not give up. It is hard sometimes. I would go home after work and tell my husband that this could be the book that never gets finished. He always says, “Oh, you’ll be fine. You always finish them.” He’s not helpful.

15.) What do you want people to take away from reading this book?

I hope they enjoy the mystery and the romance and it takes them away for however many hours it takes them to read it. I don’t kid myself. I write escape fiction. It’s okay too if I scare them a little. Mercy intrigued and scared me. Ultimately, there are some people who can’t be saved – or let loose on the rest of society.

16.) What is your next project?

The Beartooth, Montana series continues with the six-book series: The Montana Hamiltons. The first book, WILD HORSES, will be out in March, followed by LONE RIDER, in July. It is the stories of the six Hamilton sisters. Their father, Senator Buckmaster Hamilton, is running for president of the United States. But as each of his daughters find romance – and trouble – it threatens his candidacy. The future of the country hangs in the balance by the sixth book because Buckmaster has a mystery of his own.
B.J. DANIELS, a USA Today and New York Times bestselling author,wrote her first book after a career as an award-winning newspaper journalist and author of 37 published short stories. That first book, ODD MAN OUT, received a 4 ½ star review from Romantic Times magazine and went on to be nominated for Best Intrigue for that year. Since then she has won numerous awards including a career achievement award for romantic suspense and numerous nominations and awards for best book. Daniels lives in Montana with her husband, Parker, and two Springer Spaniels, Spot and Jem. When she isn’t writing, she snowboards, camps, boats and plays tennis. She is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Thriller Writers, Kiss of Death and Romance Writers of America.

Sometimes wrong can feel oh so right . . . Jenna Lacombe needs complete control, whether it’s in the streets . . . or between the sheets. So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she’s beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he’s been trying to strip away her defenses one by one. He claims he’s just coming along to keep her safe-but what’s not safe for her is prolonged exposure to the tattooed hottie. Jack can’t get Jenna out from under his skin. She makes him feel alive again after his old life nearly destroyed him-and losing her is not an option. Now Jack’s troubles are catching up to him, and he’s forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm’s way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she’s willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has.

Read An Excerpt

The way I felt about Jenna used to piss me off. I’ve never been one to need or even want a girl messing up my life. Just the opposite, in fact. The Lone Wolf role suited me well and I was perfectly content with my world of solitude. But Jenna came along and twisted everything up. She turned me inside out and made me feel complete in a way that made no sense. I fought the sentiment, of course. There’s no room for anyone in my messed up life—especially not a wild, stubborn, reckless girl like Jenna.

But fighting proved futile, and somewhat self-destructive, so I did what all good leaders do when they realize losing a battle could mean winning the war: I surrendered. Not to Jenna, exactly, but to the way she made me feel. It’s not a pretty or romantic thing. It’s a truth with scars and holes—and it commands me completely.

Does that make me weak? I used to think so. But then I see Jenna, still in the throes of a battle I’ve long since succumbed to, and I wonder which of us is stronger. Which of us sleeps well at night and which of us tosses in the moonlight.

Strength isn’t about what you can and cannot achieve. It’s about what you will and will not do in order to achieve. And on that, I know exactly where I stand.

Watching Jenna across the inn’s lobby, I take a deep breath and prepare for round two of what is sure to be a memorable—if not fatal—road trip back home.

“I’m ready when you are, diva!” I call out.

Complete agitation covers her face as she whips around with narrowed eyes and yells, “Don’t. Call. Me. DIVA!”

I grin. “It never gets old.”

“God!” she exclaims, thrusting her arms up again.

The look on her face is priceless. I could do this all day. I might, actually.

Wagging my eyebrows in an inappropriate manner, I slip back outside and let the door fall shut.

A moment later, the inn door flies open and Jenna stomps down the porch steps to meet me by the car. I quickly shove my phone in my pocket, wanting to put as much distance as possible between my present circumstances and the mess waiting for me back home, and climb into the car at the same time she does.

She’s huffing and puffing and cursing under her breath like a spoiled teenager, but when her eyes finally flick to mine there’s no hostility there, just impatience.

“You’re paying for all the gas,” she says, sliding a pair of dark sunglasses over her golden eyes. “And I mean every single drop.”

I lean back in the passenger seat, repressing the joyous satisfaction I feel at the haughtiness on her face. “Yes, ma’am.”

If buying Jenna’s gas keeps her safe by my side then I’ll purchase every last drop in the country. And then some.

Read An Excerpt

His hands started shaking, his breathing hitched, and his senses came to full alert. What’s triggered my wolf? Cautious even though he didn’t sense immediate danger, he began searching his surroundings. As his heart rate increased and a surge of sexual excitement hit him, he panicked. Had his time with Roxy made him so sick he equated danger with sex?

That can’t be right. He always feared sex with Roxy. His body reacted, but his mind never got excited. Wary now, he sniffed the air and all at once, it hit him. She was nearby. His mate. The one who didn’t know him, but he knew her wolf form. The sound of gentle laughter trickled in the wind, engorged with sadness to his ears. Melancholy he recognized, for he’d laughed like that. Laughed and smiled to hide the pain.

Now his heart restricted and plugged his ears as a roaring sound filled them. His wolf snarled within him and wanted to attack whatever caused such sadness in his mate. He walked faster, wanting a glimpse of the woman who was his mate. Still he couldn’t see her. A group of people walked ahead of him nearly to the door. She must be among them. Worried he’d lose her, he started to run, and the fear from the group escalated. They moved inside quickly with only a man turning his face to him.

Lance slowed back to a walk and went in, his shoulders hunched, hands in pockets to appear unthreatening. The warehouse, jammed from one end to the other except around the center raised half-circle, echoed with voices, shouts, anger, jealousy, and fright. He tried to pinpoint the fright as it felt so misplaced. Every wolf in here should smell the fear and react, yet only he seemed concerned.

A loud clanging in his head nearly drove him to his knees. An old-fashioned clock with metal ticking noises had taken up residence in his eardrums and did not look to be leaving any time soon. He fisted his hands in his pockets and looked around. Was he the only one who could hear the minutes counting down?

The crowd around him receded, and the noise in his eardrums became his focus. He followed his instincts and moved slowly as if in a dream. A petite woman in a black overcoat stood in front of him. He reached out to touch her shoulder, but she turned and looked at him.

Her eyes widened in shock as did his. His hand, still suspended where he’d intended to touch her to get her attention, moved up to her bronze cheek, caressing softly. The deep brown eyes gazed at him in wonder before closing up to him. He saw it as clear as day even as he told himself he imagined it. She hadn’t moved, hadn’t flinched, but she had closed down—except for the one brilliant moment when their souls met.

Author Loses Mind; Writes Book Live on the Web

By Alina Adams

 So – true confession time – I was one of those kids who went straight from “Little House” and “Ramona” books into romance and women’s fiction, bypassing the entire YA genre altogether. I read my first Sidney Sheldon novel at the start of 8th grade, and that was it for me.

Let’s just say the sex scenes didn’t hurt.

Around the same time, I remember the TV show, “Square Pegs,” featuring a high-school English teacher getting his students interested in classic literature by standing in front of the class and reading “the good parts” from “Lady Chatterley’s Lover.”

If it works for getting kids interested in reading, how about writing?

At age 13, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. A writer (like Sidney Sheldon). The problem was, there aren’t a lot of places where a teen can go to learn how to write romance novels (either with sex scenes or without). High school English was absolutely no help. Either we were diagramming sentences, parsing symbolism or perfecting our essays for the AP composition exam. Or my Creative Writing teacher was explaining that there was only one right way to write creatively – her way. And woe be it to anyone who dared disagree. (Despite my getting an “A” on every single one of my assignments, she tried to give me a final “C” for the semester, due to my bad behavior. Said bad behavior included disagreeing. Frequently.)

What I wished back then, more than anything, was that I could just sit and watch a real writer at work (preferably Sidney Sheldon), to see how they did it.

Back in the late 1980s, that wasn’t really an option. Sure, people put out “How To” books (I particularly enjoyed Lawrence Block’s “Telling Lies for Fun and Profit”), but it was all still mostly theoretical. I wanted to see the nitty-gritty, day to day stuff. I wanted to watch a story come together, so that I could learn from the process. Unlike most people, I actually wanted to see how the sausages got made.

With the advent of the Internet, things picked up somewhat. Writers would periodically put up drafts and get feedback from readers. It was a start, but it still wasn’t precisely what I wanted.

So, in lieu of a role model, I proceeded to just make up stuff as I went along. I wrote many, many books, and I sent them in to many, many agents and publishers. It’s pretty much what I did for the bulk of my college years (college English professors were about as helpful when it came to learning to write genre fiction as high-school teachers had been.  For most of them, genre writing wasn’t something that even existed, much less warranted being taught at an academic institution).

I finally sold my first book, a Regency romance to Avon, in 1994. I followed up with another Regency, two contemporaries, five figure skating mysteries, three soap-opera tie-ins and a few books of non-fiction. Finally, I was at a point in my life where I could become the writing mentor I’d so badly wanted in my youth.

The only question was: How? I did some research of what was already available, and I discovered that no one was doing exactly what I had once dreamed of: Writing their entire book live, so that it were as if you were literally standing over their shoulder, watching them type each word. Then stop, delete, write again. Stop, delete.  Delete the entire paragraph, followed by the entire chapter, then throw their hands up in the air. (What? Just me?)

I decided if no one was doing that, then I should. (Did I stop to wonder WHY no one was doing it? No, I did not. It’s one of my many character flaws.)

So I set up a website, http://alinaadamsmedia.com/live/, in the middle of July, and I began writing. Every day. (One of my big pro writing rules is to treat it like a job, and write even when you don’t feel like it. The tragic part is, once the book is completed it’s impossible to tell the stuff you wrote when you didn’t feel like it from the stuff that seemed to flow effortlessly. Again, just me?)

Then, around the middle of August, I realized that if one character was boring the hell out of me – I can’t imagine what he was doing to the readers. So I went in, deleted about ¼ of what I’d already written ((http://pgpclassicsoaps.blogspot.com/2014/08/when-your-book-gets-away-from-author.html), and started again – all the while keeping readers abreast of exactly what I was doing and why (http://pgpclassicsoaps.blogspot.com/2014/08/putting-my-writing-where-my-mouth-is.html).

Many fellow authors have suggested that perhaps I am not at my quite… sanest.  The point of writing is to labor over each word, each sentence, each plot point and character trait until it is absolutely perfect, and then to triumphantly unveil it to the public.

But, the only problem is, if we do that, how are aspiring thirteen-year-old romance writers with unhelpful English teachers going to learn? And how are they going to feel less alone?

It is entirely possibly that I am torpedoing my entire career and all the goodwill I’ve earned with readers over a dozen plus previously published books.  But, I can’t help myself. You know how they say write the book you want to read? Well, I’m taking it one step further.  Eighth grade me is totally into it.

What do you all think?

Read An Excerpt

“Whoa. Serious fire power,” Mick uttered with a drawn-out whistle. “I’m glad we’re playing on the same team. Where did you get that thing?”

“It is Uncle Phidias’ service revolver from the Crimean War. After what transpired at The Golden Dragon, I thought it best to take precautions. One never knows where one’s investigation might lead.”

Smiling approvingly, Mick nodded his head. “You gotta be impressed with a lady who thinks ahead, hey guys? Now, I’m no expert on relic firearms, but that thing looks like it could take off a man’s head.”

Hearing that, Lettitia’s stomach muscles painfully cramped.

From the chorus of muttered grunts, she surmised that the remark had a similar effect on nearly every man present.

“Is that bloody thing even loaded?” Sweeney demanded to know, eyeing the monstrously large revolver with obvious trepidation.

“Of course it is loaded,” she snapped, thinking the man a simpleton. “Why would I go to the trouble of aiming an unloadedgun at you?”

Clearly amused, Mick swung his head in Sweeney’s direction. “The lady makes a valid point.”

Humph! Easy for him to smirk and snicker. He was not the one who would have to pull the trigger, quite possibly severing a man’s head from his body.

Slipping his hand inside his coat pocket, Sweeney extracted a sinister-looking knife. He tossed it into the air, deftly catching it by the carved handle. He then took a menacing step in her direction.

Lettitia had hoped that reasoned talk would prevail. Her hopes, however, were instantly dashed the moment Sweeney drew his weapon.

“Sir, you would be wise not to accost me,” she warned. “Furthermore, if you take one more step, you will not live to tell the tale.” She added the last bit of braggadocio to let the brigand know that she was in earnest.

Sweeney came to a halt. “You can’t shoot all of us. At the most, you’ve only got six bullets.”

“True enough,” she readily agreed. “Which means that two of you shall not feel the excruciating pain of a deadly bullet ripping through his tender flesh.” Having made her point, she gestured with her revolver to the company of men spread before her. “Whoever wishes to remain unscathed, I suggest he leave the premises now.”

To her utter surprise, six of the hooligans departed posthaste, leaving only Jem and Sweeney to contend with.

“If I did the math right,” Mick remarked, “that leaves three bullets apiece.”

“Shut your bloody mouth!”

“I do not like your tone, Mister Sweeney.”

“And I don’t like some Mayfair bitch threatening the likes of Bill Sweeney,” he countered belligerently. “In fact, I’m beginning to think that you’re all bluff.”

“Think what you will. Unless you release my companion, you shall soon discover the truth of the matter.”

Digging in his heels, Sweeney stubbornly shook his head. “Sir Charlie will ‘ang me by me balls if I was to come back empty ‘anded.”

Lettitia worriedly gnawed on her lower lip, the man’s obdurate refusal to untie Mick presenting her with a true dilemma. As she pondered her options, a bolt of lightning struck in the near-vicinity, instantly followed by an earth-shattering boom of thunder. Startled, Lettitia gasped, at which point Sweeney seized his chance and rushed toward her, his knife blade threateningly pointed at her heart.

With a terrified shriek, Lettitia pulled the trigger on the revolver.

The moment she did, Mick rose to his feet. Still bound to the wooden chair, he spun on his heel, forcefully slamming the wooden legs of the chair into Jem’s backside, the man crumbling to his knees under the force of the blow.

“The bloody bitch just shot off the top of me ear!” Sweeney hollered, dropping his knife as he slapped both hands to the side of his head, blood spurting between his fingers.

Wailing like a banshee, evidently afraid that she might pull the trigger yet again, Sweeney ran for the door. His minion, staggering to his feet, did likewise.

Wasting no time, Lettitia picked up the knife so that she could cut Mick free. The instant the chair crashed to the ground, he snatched both the gun and the knife out of her hand.

“You, Lettitia Merryweather, are one dangerous lady. Come on. Let’s get the hell out of here.” Grabbing her by the arm, Mick raced towards the door.

Outside, the rain came down in blinding sheets, soaking them to the skin. As they ran through a maze of alleys, the sky detonated with a brilliant burst of bright light, the buildings around them shaking with the thunderous encore. The wind, the rain, the lightning – under any other circumstance, Lettitia would have been terrified by those elemental forces. But for some reason, here, with Mick, it was exhilarating.

       Panting, Mick came to a sudden halt at the intersection of two alleys. Gesturing to the right, he hollered, “It’s this way!”

“No, it’s this way!” Lettitia exclaimed, pointing in the opposite direction. “I’m quite certain that¾”

“Trust me.”

“Always,” she affirmed, placing her hand in his.

Hand in hand, they hurried to Dorset Street, Lettitia laughing with joy as they raced to the carriage.

Once inside the vehicle, she couldn’t stop laughing. Seized with a giddy euphoria, all of her senses were enlivened with an urgent sense of excitement.

Unthinkingly, she flung herself at Mick’s chest. “Kiss me,” she ordered, throwing her arms around his neck.

“You’re just saying that because of the adrenaline rush. The thrill of the chase has

 

got your hormones in a tailspin.”

 

“I have never been so thoroughly and deeply thrilled!” Lettitia exclaimed, not understanding a word that Mick just uttered.

“Me either.” Grasping her by the nape of the neck, Mick savagely kissed her.
