A Surprise Visitor in the Garden  #MFRWHooks

A Surprise Visitor in the Garden #MFRWHooks

This excerpt is from a novella, Love Like A River, I’ve included in the collection Love Historicals Presents Lost In A Kiss: Eight Sweet and Sensual Novellas. My story is definitely on the sensual side. Gratia is alone in a garden by the Danube, at night, when this happens.


She met the stone wall, felt the radiant heat of what had been an unseasonably warm October afternoon. She pressed against that warmth, sighed, let her eyes flutter closed as her fingers curled over the chalky surface near her head. To be full body against such warmth….

A brush of sound was the only warning before calloused hands settled on top of hers. Her eyes flew open as the contact and a harsh whisper braced her in place.

“You should not be out here alone.” The man smelled like horse and sweat and the thick dust of hard travel.


Who might he be? And what do you think of that cover? I know he’s kind of hairy, but Leo (the hero) has a hairy chest, and also those big square hands were perfect. Me like.

Snow and a Free Romance #MFRWHooks

The snow falls outside my window. I haven’t been paying attention to the weather report, so I had no idea it was coming. I wonder what it was like to live in an earlier time in human history without an accurate clue what outside conditions would be from day to day? I suppose if you’d never known… Continue Reading
