Neighborhood with Different Styles

It’s always fun to make up fake locations in books… Whisper Lane in my new book Garden of Lust has old homes and there is no one style of cottage or bungalow… California Eclectic Architecture (Daphne Chastain from DECEIVED)… 













Photos found on Pinterest and Real Estate sites

Love California architecture…
craftsman, cottage, bungalow, Victorian, Spanish, Mediterranean…
A variety on one street happens very often in older neighborhoods

Santa Anita Derby: BettingonMisters

 Writing my newest book about three romances that involve horse racing… Santa Anita Park is the setting for my FICTIONAL contemporary romance, women’s fiction book that includes: enemies to lovers, secret romances that could possibly be forbidden, single mother avoiding romance with a slick bachelor…more issues throughout the book as well will keep readers interested… Excited to release this BETTING ON MISTERS book June 7th… I love the characters, I love the subject of horse racing and I love that I’m dedicating this book to My Dad who loves horse racing and has taken me to Santa Anita Park Race Track since I was very young…

Beautiful race track… I returned to the track recently for a little research; viewing the old track with new changes that have sadly eliminated jobs which make it lose some of its old charm… but it still provides wonderful memories and vibes for me

TODAY: April 6th is SANTA ANITA DERBY DAY… I got the Daily Racing Form to give to my Dad…and it came in handy for writing my book where the main horse “BETTINGONMISTERS” in the story runs in the BIG RACE OF THE DAY… 


Skylar, Singer and Storm, the three S committee for the annual Spring Fling charity event at Santa Anita Park, seem to all be battling with three misters of their own.

 

Skylar “Lark” Lovingier, high-end fashion designer representative, back in town must quietly face her old flame and sometime nemesis, MisterCharming.


Singer Summerfield, one-time model turn handbag designer, looks to have a thing for someone she has coined MisterLucky. 


Storm Chandler, single mother and owner of a food catering empire, appears to be exhibiting the biggest secret of all that involves one MisterSlick. 


What do these Misters all have in common? 

A desire to win the Triple Crown with their horse BettingonMisters

If YOU would like the read and review my May 24th releasing book Garden of Lust… here’s your chance… sign up here READ AND REVIEW





All my life I have received or been read my horoscope compliments of Madame Jezebel. This one arrived circled with a big green heart and decorated with bright leaves...

 

The New Moon lights up your social life.  A stranger may appeal to your sense of longing and you could be inspired to plant new roots. Regardless, your interest will be inspirational. Follow your feelings when the Moon conjoins Neptune. Use your intuition and have a great time cultivating new blooms. Shine with happiness before the Full Moon. You might even find yourself caring for a garden of lust. Enjoy an energetic glow. 

 

I was never quite sure what they meant.  

This one wasn't any different.

But I had never seen one jazzed up.

 

A heart... A stranger... Garden of Lust... 

Did it mean that love was finally coming my way?

For some reason it didn't seem promising.

Starting on a New Moon and ending on a Full Moon.

Then I noticed small words circled in red... Do NOT fall in love.

More details about each story below...

MONDAY: Tall, Dark & Aromatic 
When a sinfully gorgeous man enters Cafélicious, the owner, Pansie, is consumed with his beauty and although she thinks he might be homeless, he has captured her heart without even knowing it. Basil, the man in question, is instantly smitten by Pansie and makes it his mission in life to woo her with his poetry and charm. Could it be that he is the man for her at the so-called Hookup Café?





TUESDAY: A Double Shot 
When a hunky delivery man steps through baker Marzi’s kitchen doors of Cafélicious early one morning, she gets from more than the supplies needed to create her amazing sweet treats. Avery gives a whole new meaning to the words excellent customer service and he’s willing to deliver far more than his goods. Marzi busy with her business and personal issues, limits Avery to one day a week. Will he continue to accept her limitations or will he breakthrough and get her to provide him with dessert anytime, anywhere?






WEDNESDAY: With Lots of Cream 
When Evie welcomes everyone to Cafélicious’ Open-Mic night, she finds herself doing something totally out of her comfort zone thanks to a heart-stopping, beautiful man sitting close to the stage sporting sexy arm tats. Nate stares up at the vision before him with his clear blue eyes and finds himself lost to her as he watches the shy café server belt out a sensuous song. Their love of music draws them closer together. It was supposed to be a summer fling, but will it turn into something more?





THURSDAY: Bold, Rich & Strong 
When one very muscular man walks up to the counter of Cafélicious, head barista Saylor is abruptly asked if she was named after a one-night stand her mother had with a stranger. Not one easily intimidated, she puts Deacon in his place which only seems to make him come on stronger and when he tells her that she likes him because he is bold, rich, and strong, she isn’t sure if that’s true or if she wants to slap him. Could it be that he is right?





FRIDAY: Laced with Spice 
When Vivienne joins an online blind-dating service and sets a date, she has him meet her at Cafélicious owned by her best friend where they can check him out to make sure he is not a dud or worse. Unbeknownst to mystery man Mason, her friends are texting her a message that reads laced with spice meaning that he is handsome and that she should show up. What will happen when he finds out that she has cheated the system?





SATURDAY: Light, Full Bodied & Screwed 
When a stunning woman sits down at a counter where chef Vin is attempting to create gourmet dishes, he decides that she should be banned from sitting so close to him. It turns out that she will not be leaving his sight as Darla is the new wine rep in charge of pairing his cuisine with her wines. Listening to her wine presentations that put him on the edge, he categorizes her as light, full-bodied and himself as screwed. Can these two pair up outside of Cafélicious?
