#FiveSentenceFriday A Risque Five Sentences from Making Time

 



#FivesentenceFriday From the WIP: Making Time: Bonded Souls 3. This is a conversation between Dillon, a rebel with a big agenda, and Lily, the watchmaker's granddaughter with some pretty big secrets.
 

“What do you want from me?”

“Orgasms,” she muttered under her breath. Her mind must have connected to what she’d said, because her cheeks flushed as her green eyes widened. “I can’t believe I said that out loud.”


But it made me laugh since there’d been nothing in her body language so far that indicated she wanted me—or an orgasm.

#5sentencefriday The Price We Pay #TwistedLuck

 


Five Sentence Friday!

I have a hard time choosing these. I went with Five Sentences from Twisted Luck. This is the moment Olivia realizes she's sold her soul to a sexy demon...for the price of good luck. 

****


Everything spun until clarity ruled and numbness reigned. I just couldn’t grasp it. One night of a drunken pity party had left me here, facing this gorgeous demon in a suit.

My life—the shitty and the good—was over.

What had I done?



What do you think? It was such fun to write something so out of the box for me. To think that a demon can be redeemed? Or can he...

#5SentenceFriday Heated Kiss Scene! #ChasingTime

 


Here again to celebrate Five Sentence Friday! Here's a snipped of a heated kiss scene from Chasing Time, book 1 Bonded Souls series. Let me set the scene... They're cozied up on Marek's bow window seat as a storm rages outside. One kiss leads to a second, and that leads to... 

****
As Marek's lips claimed mine, his arm wrapped around me, his large hand splayed on my back. Instant arousal flashed over my skin, his gentle seduction dampening my panties. With a tug on my leg, he had me straddle his firm thighs, so I was on top. Before I could protest, he deepened the kiss, his tongue darting between my lips, begging me to part.

I groaned and opened my mouth to his. 

****
.
What do you think? The scene was so fun to write, and I hope you'll enjoy reading the whole thing when it comes out!

Until next time!

#FiveSentenceFriday Who's Creeping on the Corner?

 

I'm starting something new with a bunch of author friends called Five Sentence Friday. We're posting five lines from a book or WIP. 

Since this is a brand new adventure, I'm posting five lines from the very opening of Chasing Time from my new Bonded Souls series (which isn't out yet). But HEY, join my newsletter to find out when Chasing Time will be out, as well as enjoy some freebies, cover reveals, giveaways...good stuff. Hop on over to my new website for books and more! 



Why the hell did he bother me so much? The stranger had been standing across the street in front of the bakery for about twenty minutes, drinking something hot from a take-out cup. His coat collar was pulled up to ward off the chill of the autumn morning, the dark, woolen fabric partially obscuring his face and making it hard to tell where the fabric began and his dark hair ended. The longer length of the coat also hid the cut of his pants, though I could tell they weren’t jeans. They were probably nice, like something someone would wear to work or a funeral.



And the answer to who's creeping on the corner is...Marek Young! 

Unfortunately, our hero starts out his journey creeping on Skye on the corner, hoping she'll notice him. She does...and right away, it's not favorable. But fear not, dear reader, she doesn't need to file for a protective order. He's absolutely harmless.

Stay tuned for next week's episode of #FiveSentenceFriday! 


Until next time, 

~Mia.

It's Marek Young's Birthday!

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Marek Young, the hero in Chasing Time, Book 1 of the Bonded Souls series. 

Hey! Before I get into more, head on over to my website and sign up for my Newsletter. You'll get access to all sorts of fun stuff. In the VIP section, I have the first chapter of Chasing Time posted for subscribers. It's more fun than a barrel of monkeys, without the mess! 

BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH!

I had so much fun writing this book. Marek chooses the Ides of March as his date to leave to jump through time, hoping Skye will make up her mind to join him on one last jump through time to return a stolen necklace. But Skye isn't ready for the truth, and Marek may have signed himself up for a one-way trip to 1892. 

But not only is the Ides his birthday... In the future, he proposed to Skye on that date outside of the bookstore she now works in. She has no memory of that either, and has no idea why the Ides means so much to him. Maybe he should have heeded the warnings about this day! 

Chasing Time, book 1, Bonded Souls blurb:


One fated jump through time destroyed Marek Young’s life…

I have only one mission—make my wife love me again. Except the aloof bookstore clerk and grad student is no longer my wife. Jumping through time has changed her, and she grew up in this era with no memory of our adventures...or me. I have a month to win her back before I run out of time and die. Unfortunately, she’s always had a temper. If she discovers what I did to ground us here, she’ll kill me anyway.

 Skye Worthington’s quest for the truth brings more than she bargained for…

My already turbulent life flips upside down the moment Marek Young appears. Nightmares from my childhood give way to sexy dreams of a man in leather pants who gives me what no other man has. As Marek is a client of the bookstore where I work, I can’t really say no when he asks me to dinner. I didn’t expect the pull of desire or the sizzle of familiar energy the first time we touched, but I need more than satisfaction. I need the truth. Yet the truth he offers seems too bizarre to believe…

What do you think? Fun, huh? Leave me a comment and tell me what you think! 

Until next time!

Mia is No Longer M.I.A.



Mia is no longer M.I.A. 
And a Game of: How Lazy is Mia?

What's up with you, reader friend? If you don't care how lazy I am, or where I've been, just jump on down to the A NEW SERIES ON THE HORIZON section to get the scoop on what's new! 

So first, a game. How lazy am I? 

I dumped a bunch of a prescription in the bottom of my box where the pills live. And I was SO lazy, I just said, eh. And proceeded, for a month, to fish one as needed off the bottom of the plastic box. I have officially reached the end of the bottle and need to order more, and the haze of laziness has lifted. I might do great things now. 

So...tell me in the comments: How lazy are YOU? 

So, Mia, what have you been up to, you ask? (You can tell me what you're up to in the comments, too!)

After the release of Twisted Luck, I took a break. I found out my mom's cancer had spread so that we were now looking at months instead of years. Those months became weeks, then days...then that was it.

The one thing I did that took up a lot of time and effort was to go back and finish my bachelor's degree. I had thought about it before my mom had died. I ended up with a Paralegal certificate, and then after an internship, I landed a really good job. Then, I graduated in January 2020 with a 4.0, Summa Cum Laude.

So fast forward to the beginning of COVID, which started to spiral here in CT on my birthday. My job sent us home, and the writer's block that had been stopping me from writing finally ended. I've been writing since.

I am happy to report I finished one book in 2020 and just finished my first of 2021 today ! Color me all sorts of happy! 

A NEW SERIES ON THE HORIZON!   

So...this series doesn't have a title yet, but I have two books. It's set in a whole different world than what I usually write, and it features some light magical fun with time travel in a non-conventional way. The heroines are kick-ass, the heroes are scrumptious, and the world they live in is intriguing! 

Book One: Skye and Marek

Tentative title: Chasing Time Contemporary single title with magical elements.

Book Two: Aria and Jax

Tentative title: Freezing Time

Book Three: Lily and Dillon 

Tentative title: Making Time

Book Four: Raine and... We'll have to see! 


That's all for now! See ya soon!

#NewRelease Twisted Luck: Ready to Take You To Hell And Back #paranormalromance #kindle





So excited! Today is release day for Twisted Luck!



This is my first full release in a long time, and I'm really proud of this book. They say it takes a village for a lot of things, and a village definitely helped me get this project off the ground. You see, I had given up writing. In my mind, I was done. But a friend asked me not to stop, and at the same time, the muse kicked in with a story idea. I always come up with a song, and Elle King's Ex's &Oh's became the track that made the images form in my mind and beg to be written. I said I'd try once more, but I'd write for me and my village.

So here we are, a year later. I hope you like Olivia and Leo's story as much as I enjoyed writing it. The trailer below was designed by TBC Trailers and is gorgeous. Enjoy!~Mia

Blurb For Twisted Luck


All I wanted was luck—the good kind. I’d lost my job, a jerk hacked my bank account, and I caught my best friend screwing my fiancĂ©. When stood up by my Internet date in a bar, I met the perfect man—tall, dark, and handsome in the most expensive suit. He was out of my league, but I didn’t want forever.

I barely remember the words he whispered under the veil of sin and seduction. I didn’t believe in Satan, God, Heaven or Hell. I thought he was kidding. A figment. A dream.

I was wrong. With one, breathless yes, my fate was sealed.

Businessman by day, demon by night, Leo Weston now owns my soul in exchange for good luck. Time is ticking as he works to secure my mother’s soul, too. Somehow, I have to take him down despite him being so damned gorgeous, glib, and devious. Will my gift of twisted luck be enough to save her and protect my heart?

Excerpt from Twisted Luck

Someone slid onto the stool next to me. I glanced over at the attractive guy in a suit, my heart pounding fast for a beat. Maybe my date had shown after all.
Cover by Designed by D

I turned just enough to check him out from the corner of my eye. Nope. The tailored, expensive suit and sparkling cufflinks screamed class and money. Definitely not my internet date.

I sipped the frozen margarita I’d nursed between shots and peeked again, trying to not be obvious in my perusal. Hot, broody, and dangerous, he wore a dark gray suit that fit him to a tee. Short-cropped, dark hair, high cheek bones, firm lips, and a hint of dark stubble shading his strong jaw—all definitely my type. Probably mid-thirties. I liked older. With my luck, the guy had a wife and two mistresses waiting somewhere.

Yet here he sat on a barstool next to me, making my palms wet and my heart race. Disheartened, I sipped my drink and did my best to ignore the eye candy at my elbow.

I was definitely doomed.

“Can I buy you another drink?” the hot guy asked.

“That’s probably not a good idea.” I toyed with the stirrer in my drink. Wife and mistresses. I had to keep that in mind.

He chuckled, his deep voice stirring something carnal deep inside me. “I assure you, I’m not married. Nor do I have mistresses.”

Had I said that aloud? I shrugged, not wanting to be sucked in to the charm and whatever else he was selling in that expensive suit. “Sure. It’s your dime.”

He ordered and casually leaned an elbow on the bar, the weight of his stare sliding along my skin, heating it. I’d worn a simple black dress that showed just enough thigh and cleavage for a first date. My exposed flesh warmed as shocks of pleasure and lust danced along my nerves.

Maybe the alcohol was finally kicking in. I focused on the television, hoping the hot guy would take his drink and sit somewhere else.

“You look like you’ve lost your best friend,” he observed.

“Nosy.” But yeah, I had when she’d screwed my boyfriend in my bed. I took one of the shots the bartender slid in front of me and downed it without clinking glasses or thanking the guy.

“You want to talk about it?”

“Nope.” I set the glass in front of him and met his chocolaty gaze for the first time. “Look, buddy—”

Gah.

I froze, mesmerized as I stared at perfection. His eyes…deep, dark brown pools I’d drown in if I weren’t careful, framed by the thickest, darkest lashes. My heart did weird things as I fought for the breath lodged in my tight chest.


Mr. Perfect stared at me as if he knew me, had lost me, and had finally found me. And for some reason, I thought I knew him, too.
