What She Wants for Christmas

Like most women over the years I have had a string of the usual Christmas gifts...new cars, houses, diamonds and such.

So I thought this year I would think outside of the box and actually add a few things to my wish list that women usually don't get. Of course this is what Santa would look like slidding down the chimney!

Now tell me this wouldn't be sweet... 

And it wouldn't hurt none if he looked a lot like this, huh?

I'm not sure how much of that dinner would actually be eaten, but wow what an offer:)

And how about a few love letters???

Especially if he hand delivered them.

And since I don't want to be too greedy, I'll end my list with just one more thing...I would like a list of all the bad boys that made Santa's naughty list this year:)

18 October 20112

Author Samantha Pleasant has a new release 'Summer School' at Rebel Ink Press

Stacy is waiting out the long weekend before summer school begins when she sees her booty call walking across the quad. Remembering a conversation they'd had about him being stuck in summer school, too, Stacy realizes she's got an opportunity to make the weekend a lot more satisfying.

When she gets to Harrison's door, she learns his roommate, Len, is also in summer school. Harrison convinces Stacy that Len's dead to the world and won't hear them having sex. Stacy wants to say no but Harrison's smooth talk and soft touches overwhelms Stacy's fear of being caught.

Lost in an orgasm, Stacy feels Len sliding up behind her and a day between the two roommates uncovers hidden feelings for Stacy both Len and Harrison had been trying to suppress. By the end of the night, Stacy will learn more about her body, love and what can come when two men's only desire is to please her.

Author Michel Prince

16 October 2012

Up-and-coming Author Michel Prince has recently released the 2nd installment to her Chrysalis series with Rebel Ink Press. And I must confess, she is on my list of favorite writers. Her writing is fresh and spellbinding...kinda like those favorite potato chips...ya can't read just one.
So, my only question is; if you haven't checked out at least one of her books...why the heck not?:)

The Beam:
When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.-Corinthians 13:11

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they must put aside their childish ways. In the past year, Ellie Chisholm has fallen into the security of her relationship with Oscar Jeffreys, emerging with a stronger sense of herself. But now Ellie's mother has started inserting herself into Ellie’s life, treating her as if she were a child even though Ellie has begun to make very adult decisions for her future. Having finally consummated her relationship with Oscar, Ellie learns the powers inside of her stretch further than vaporizing demons.

Maria, the demon bent on revenge, has been reigned in by God but that doesn’t stop her from disrupting and threatening those around Ellie and Oscar. Ellie becomes off balance as Maria switches strategy and attempts to destroy Ellie from the outside. Now the gauntlet has been thrown down. Ellie must help her family achieve positive change and finally break the tie between her mother and Gaap or risk losing everyone she loves.

Can Ellie maintain her sanity while walking the last steps as a child?

In the annals of dysfunctional families, the Chisholm’s are working their way to the top. Drug abuse, an unwed mother with multiple fathers, and the questionable cash flow for the 'pretty one'. All this from a seemingly normal, two parent middle class family. But were the choices truly made of their free will?

Bad choices are a Chisholm family trait, one that confounds the youngest child, Ellie, who's trying to separate herself by making smart decisions. And falling for Oscar Jeffreys, the hottest guy at school, would be number one on the list of Chisholm family disasters. Yet the crazy part is it’s not a one sided attraction. Somehow Ellie has caught Oscar Jeffreys’ eye. Sure she could see the barriers between them. Race, age, popularity. They were at opposite ends of the spectrum. But a demon set to destroy her family? She can't see that.

Oscar provides security and acceptance Ellie never imagined she deserved. As the passion of first love grows, Ellie honestly believes she has a chance to beat the odds and live a happy, normal life. Then her world collapses around her. With the help of a guardian angel, Ellie learns of a world that has unknowingly surrounded her for years. And she'll have to find strength buried deep inside to save not only her future, but flush out and stop the demon in her midst.

And Ellie will have to learn that sometimes the hardest lesson about growing up is accepting that you're worth more.


The Guardian's Heart:
Case Thomas is always in control whether its on the basketball court, the lab where he works, or in his love life. He thinks he has everything all figured out. All that changes when his parents pass away during his last year of college and Case is thrown into fatherhood when he becomes temporary guardian to two adorable twin toddlers. Weeks later, exhausted and running out of time, Case must decide if he's ready to become a father to these children, or give them up and move on with what's left of his life. Then he meets Gabbie Vaulst.

Gabbie is amazing with the kids, owns her own business, and has all the right curves in all the right places. She can tell Case is attracted to her, but does he really love her or is he just settling for a surrogate Mom who can wrangle his new kids? Knowing that she's falling in love with him, she chooses to push him away until his world straightens out. Can Case prove to Gabbie, and himself, that his feelings are real? Or is this sudden family too much for both of them to handle?

The odds, as well as members of their past who've come out of the woodwork, are against them, but when kids are involved, all bets are off.

The Frozen: 
You close your eyes and finally make the decision to end your life only to have him show up. Gabriel, here to give you a second chance at salvation. They say he’s an angel, but then again, they don’t have to serve under him. He offers you a chance to be a member of the Frozen, a group of demon hunters. Serve your sentence and you can ascend to heaven. Refuse? Well, the punishment's been clearly laid out in the scriptures. It’s a last chance. But when your body is frozen in time, can your heart still beat?

Nye, a former slave who lost his love and was tired of being under the control of another, ended his life in 1859. His stubborn ways kept him under Gabriel’s thumb and from ascending to Heaven. Feeling that a woman was the cause of his downfall, Nye hasn’t had the urge for a woman for over a hundred and fifty years. Knowing he has less than seven years left until he earns salvation, he's staying on the straight and narrow – until a woman gets caught in the crossfire during a demon hunt.

Receiving devastating news, Kiriana moves across the country only to get caught up in the world of The Frozen. With each passing moment, Nye and Kiriana are pulled into an attraction that could be their ultimate demise. Or their greatest salvation.

All the while Damarion, is leading a group of female demons as they try to protect the demons sent from Hell to obtain the souls of humans. Being assigned to Earth as a punishment for crimes against the royal family, Damarion learns that there are dangers within his coven trying to take him down and stop him from returning to his love, still trapped in Hell. A love he was so sure was true...

Author Madison Montgomery

15 October 2012

Author Madison Montgomery recently released her 2nd story in the Virginia Templeton series.

Virginia Tempelton is a despicable Diva...a very sexy woman who uses her good looks and dirty tricks to manipulate people and situations to her advantage. She knows what she wants and will stop at nothing to get it no mater the cost or who it hurts in the process. A true to life character we can all relate to. As Ms Montgomery artfully tells Virginia's story you might love her, you might hate her or you may just find yourself envious of her...but you will absolutely want to know more.


She knows other women want her life and men just plain want her, but she'll have to play her game carefully to get everything she wants ...

Virginia Templeton can turn heads in any room, and get the attention of any man she wants. She's married to a rich, powerful businessman, but she wants a divorce. She wants financial freedom, but there are conditions...

She owns a luxurious condo building, complete with a dashing man to enjoy on the side, but he wants another woman...


Even more than sleeping with gorgeous, sexy men, Virginia Templeton loves tossing them out just when they think they've discovered a way to her heart. Some say she has no heart. Then there’s that one moment when no one is looking, when she does something that changes her from having no soul to revealing a side that surprises even her.

School Daze

17 August 2012

Alright, so summer vacation is winding down and mothers, grandmothers, nannies, and caregivers across the nation are gearing up for back-to-school. Amidst the hustle and bustle of school shopping and sports physicals, dental checkups and visits to the eye doctor...all in the spirit of getting the little darlings ready for the start of a brand new school year; what happens to us...the women of the world?

We get frazzled, right? Right!!!

And who couldn't use a little distraction from the crazyness of real life for a few minutes, right? Right!!!

Soooo...I thought I'd share with yall some of the things that calm my frazzled nerves...

                     Like maybe a little chocolate               
                                Or how about alot???

And then again sometimes it's nice to just have a relaxing drink...

But of course a glass of wine is always better when shared:)

Or if you are the kind that likes the hard stuff
Maybe this would be more your flavor
And then there is always the best way to relax and forget your troubles...oh yeah, a nice hot bubble bath
For Two

So all of you feel free to borrow any of my suggestion for relaxing at this busy time of year, and enjoy...I only hope my methods work as well for you as they do for me;)

Until next time...XoXo...BC

16 August 2012

Hi All, I have a new release coming out September 17th with Rebel Ink Press so I thought I would go ahead and share my new cover (which I absolutely love) and the blurb...

      Elizabeth Simmons has a secret that could destroy the happy life she's finally managed to build.

Seven years into an unhappy marriage, Elizabeth had become accustomed to a life of lies, insults, and other women. In fact, she'd taken up the philosophy don’t expect anything and you won’t be disappointed.

Breaking her own rule, an anniversary trip to New Orleans leaves her disappointed and alone yet again when a chance meeting with Mr. Tall, Dark and Almost Too Handsome to be true causes her imagination to take over and she finds it difficult to think of anything else. Soon she starts wondering if a midnight tryst might not be such a bad thing after all. 

But three years later Shawn shows up on her doorstep and the threat of her perfect world crashing down around her is all too real.

Rebel Ink Press New Release Blog Hop

10 JUNE 2012

Welcome all, since the just of this hop is New Releases I will be sharing two:

A Simple Seduction is Erotic Romance with a touch of Supernatural elements scheduled for release July 3rd.

What’s a girl to do when she sets out to seduce the man of her dreams only to wake the next morning and find him gone after experiencing the most passionate night of her life?

For Nichole Carter, spending a week at a cabin in the Colorado Mountains with her brother and his friends is a dream come true. After all, she has been in love from afar with her brother’s best friend, Jared Rainwater, for over two years and no way was she going to miss the chance to be close to him despite her insecurities.   

Plans have a way of changing and when circumstance finds them alone and snow bound for the night, she decides to throw caution to the wind, leading to a passion filled night of confessions and proposals.  But when she receives the news that Jared’s been involved in an accident, it leaves Nichole wondering… 

Was he really there or was it all just a dream?

My first release, an Interracial Erotic Romance

'Mr Thursday Night' was released in March.

Catherine Sinclair is a Lawyer from a well to do family with high society connections. She's spent her life focusing on her career and trying to make her father proud by becoming a partner at his firm.

Tyrese Jackson is a thug from the hood and leader of the most powerful gang on the south side.

Both have good reason not to let their families and friends know about their relationship. Catherine knows her association with Ty could damage her chances of making partner. Ty fears for Catherine's safety if his associates or rival gang members discover their relationship.

But they find peace and their true selves in the time they spend together on Thursday nights... steamy passion filled nights that leave each wanting more.

Mr Thursday Night is available at:
