I may have told you this before, but more than once this year I was ready to give up on writing. My books barely sell (I wanna believed it’s because I suck at promo, and not writing) and my workdays are so busy with the work and editing that actually pay my bills, that making time to write takes away from time with my guys.
After long talks with Sofia Grey and Allyson Lindt, who are all kinds of awesome, I decided I’d just take things more slowly, which is why I was planning to take a break after Cherry Pie came out.
And then I opened my WIPs folder and remembered I have two almost finished novellas—A Kiss in the Dark and Banana Guy, both romantic comedies. As you can imagine, the taking-a-break thing was postponed for next year.
Oh, hush. You know I have no follow-through.
Anyway, I’ve given you all more than a taste of A Kiss in the Dark, which will be out in January, so here’s a teaser (unedited) from Banana Guy, coming in March!
He was such a dumbass. His muse stood at the entrance to the parking lot, arms laden with shopping bags, and the woman he’d decided was her mother wasn’t in sight. She’d probably gone to get their car. Not that it mattered. What mattered was that this exquisite creature was there alone, and instead of talking to her, Dean was ogling her like an old perv—and how was that for avoiding purple prose? His editor would love it!
Her fumbling with the bags was Dean’s cue.
He had to say something witty. Had to make her laugh. For some reason, it was imperative that he make her laugh. Whatever his first words to her would be, they’d have to stick with her. He could do it; words were what he did best.
He approached with a smile, trying to appear confident. She was even more beautiful up close, and when she turned her questioning gaze his way, his heart skipped a beat.
He had to deliver the perfect opening line.
“I can help you with those,” he said, pointing at her shopping bags, “but you’ll have to hold my banana.”

Colin Daniels is shallow, and proud of it. He only concerns himself with people who live up to his standards of beauty, and his best friend’s new girlfriend is found lacking. Becca is curvy, loud, and apparently all for public displays of affection.
None of that would matter, if Colin didn’t find her sexy despite his better judgment.
Brad Miller thought he was being attentive to his girlfriend’s needs when he talked his best friend into having sex with her. It’s Becca’s fantasy he wants to fulfill, and that’s the only reason he’s trying to convince Colin to join the two of them on her birthday.
Becca Keith was never a one-man woman until she met Brad, but he’s made monogamy fun, and she’s head over heels for him. Her thirtieth birthday is in a few days, and Brad has promised her a rather unique gift—his best friend, cocky and irresistible Colin.
When Brad comes to her with a confession and a suggestion, Becca gets a choice. She can stay with Brad, leave him, or give in to something that might make her happy beyond her wildest dreams.
NOTE: Previously published as separate novellas, Threefold contains three new scenes.
The story includes two stubborn, confused, and very hot guys, as well as a big beautiful woman, who loves sexy-times with more than one partners.
