Hey, readers! I’m so excited to share a little of my latest, steamy book, Queen of the Castle. It’s a sensual interracial romance that tests the limits of love and desire. Check out the blurb, then get ready for a taste of 🔥heat🔥!
Tarika is happy living single. She loves her home—her castle—and is not looking for some man to try and take over everything she has built. When her best friend, Hafsah throws Aqil her way, Tarika makes it clear that she is not interested in the shy man, who barely speaks to her. When she needs his help after an accident, she allows Aqil and his daughter into her life, making it difficult to resist his sexy gray eyes and sultry smile. The more time she spends with him, the harder it is to keep her distance. Continue reading “#MFRWHooks, Hot New Romance, Queen of the Castle”→
Hey, romance addicts! I wrote a short story about the main characters of my soon-to-be-released novel, Building on Broken Dreams. Book three in the Brothers in Law series, this steamy romance features couple Adam Kane and Maryam Avery.
Below is and excerpt from the short story “My Heart’s Tranquility,” featured in Shades of BWWM by Love Journey books.
Enjoy! and be on the lookout for Building on Broken Dreams
I recently join Sapphire J. Blue on her podcast about the steamy romance, Open to Love. We talked about the main character Tarika’s determination to live a single life, not letting man into her home or heart. As far as she is concerned, everything is copacetic, then along comes Aqil.
Aqil has quite a bit on his plate. He looks out for the health and happiness of his young daughter, Daliah, which means making sure his ex-wife, Vanessa doesn’t go flying off the rails as she struggles with bi-polar disorder. When he meets Tarika, he works hard to break her shell, but she proves to be a hard one to crack.

Careful what you ask for. Before Amir was married, he prayed for someone who would give him sex whenever he wanted it.
Crystal, the woman he married, is an undercover nympho who gives him all the sex he wants and a lot more. Now, his marriage is in trouble because of all the sex and there’s one guy from Crystal’s past who’s happy about it.
Thanks for letting me come and share my writing journey with your readers, Lyndell.
As I thought about what to share and what advice I might offer, I wondered how my life would be different if someone had offered me the advice I was thinking about. Then I thought, if I could go back in time and give myself this advice, would I even listen?
Probably not. I was headstrong and thought I knew what I was doing. But if I’d listen, this is the advice I’d offer my younger self.
While looking through past blog posts the other day, I found this one from 2008, talking about the Obama-McCain race. So much emotion. So much yelling. So many accusations. I loved it all!
But then I came back to what’s happening now. I’ve voted in a lot of elections and I don’t remember any of them being as hard as this one. I was happy to read this post, and hope for an outcome we can all live with. Elections aren’t designed for everyone to be happy (when will that ever happen?) but for the country to succeed. Fingers crossed!
I whipped the vehicle to the side of the road, put it into “park” and jammed on the emergency brake. I jumped out and joined about 50 other people along the bank of the Madison River inside Yellowstone National Park. We watched a pair of trumpeter swans gliding gracefully through the ripples of water with six cygnets. Although I had seen swans before, rarely had I encountered so many babies with their parents. I’ve not experienced such a sight since.
I relish open spaces, like those found in Yellowstone. Public lands, from parks and forests to wildlife refuges and national monuments, provide sacred spaces to still one’s soul, open one’s heart, and inspire creativity in one’s mind. I am fortunate to live near such special places, and each visit produces a piece of writing or two from the experience.
Other landscapes can stir the imagination, too, such as community parks, botanical gardens, and picturesque farms. Nature’s sights, sounds, and smells open the book of our senses and provide opportunities for creativity to flow.
Two other special outdoor spaces spark creativity for me. One is a ranch located 75 miles from my home, owned by some friends. About three times a year I travel and stay there for an extended period of time. The sage and grass-covered hills, rolling Powder River, and the distant Bighorn Mountains provide solace, and livestock and wildlife encounters bring smiles. Crimson sunrises greet me, and golden sunsets beckon sleep. The quiet relaxes me, and my friends’ generosity brings me joy. The modular guesthouse at which I stay possesses large windows from which one gazes upon the nearby fields and woods. White-tailed deer, fanned-out turkeys, and dancing sandhill cranes abound. I’ve composed many articles, short stories, and book chapters at this scenic and tranquil place.Continue reading “The Outdoors: My Writing Inspiration”→
