SPIDER coming soon, and Saturday Puzzle-Contest!
Saturday, June 24th, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is Kerry Pruitt!

This is just a reminder that Along Came a Spider will release on Tuesday! It’s a very sexy, action-filled story with SEALs coming to the rescue. Should be right up your alley!

Along Came a Spider

All this SEAL wants is time alone to recharge after a grueling mission, but what he gets is caught in the crossfire of passion and danger.

After Spider follows a fellow SEAL’s advice to take some downtime and try fishing to get over his restlessness after back-to-back missions, he finds himself even more irritated until his fishing lure gets caught in the bushes, and while trying to free it, he notices men armed with tactical equipment moving through the forest. Curiosity piqued, he follows and is just in time to prevent the men from harming a lone female camper.

Jessie Tamberlin hoped to hide out in the woods until after her wedding to a billionaire, following her discovery that he is an illegal arms dealer. However, she knows secrets he’s determined to keep silent; he’s never going to let her go. When she finds an ally in the woods, who helps her escape, she has to make an on-the-spot decision to trust him.

Together, they work to stay one step ahead of her ex-fiancé while trying to ignore their growing attraction for each other.

Note: This novella was previously published in the Men in Uniform anthology.

    3:51 Jack and Jill have been hiking and found this idyllic spot for a bit of a break and to cool off. Well, okay, so they seem to be getting a bit heated, but the water is refreshing.

    6:51 Think one of my best times. If my phone screen would quit moving while trying to move pieces may be able to get faster times.

    The couple has escaped the people chasing them and can finally take a small amount of time to clean up. While cleaning up, she’s scared and weak and he supports and tells her he will protect her. Meanwhile he’s intrigued by how she’s handling everything and is starting to fall for her quiet strength.

    Lost in the woods after sneaking off from a wedding reception, the young couple spot a secluded pool under a waterfall and decide to rest and cool off there. While enjoying the water, she looked down and sees people looking for them. They are torn to either stay hidden or call out their location.

    It is a time traveling romance. One minute she is at a wedding. Next she is in 1700’s Scotland in the middle of a clan war. He spots her too close to the edge of a waterfall. He grabs her and is immediately drawn to her. She spots the enemy getting ready to attack. He is too focused on trying to figure out what she is wearing to notice.

    Two friends are out for a hike when they have an unexpected run-in with a bear. While all parties are able to flee unharmed, the two are sufficiently overheated and emotionally overwhelmed to need a chance to cool off in the nearby waterfall. And the excitement has also nudged them to see how clever and capable the other is, and well, hot…

    Looking out on the poor wilting leaves in the Texas Heat. I know they are long missing their lover Rain. They know that one day Rain will return to them to heal their steaming stalk and replenish their beautiful green color. Rain is a tease one day word arrives that Rain will be, but never shows. Rain will show when least expected. That is why the wilting green leaves wait patiently for their lover Rain. Rain is well worth the wait to replenish their soul.

    23:46 minutes. I was distracted and that’s why it took so

    Taking a walk to find the secret waterfall, they find it and decide to spend some serious playtime in the water. Cooling off in the water is the perfect remedy to being hot & bothered. 😉
