Happy Easter to everyone. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. I will be off visiting my familial relations, eating too much, and not getting enough sleep because they seem to think that four hours is more than enough. For the record, it’s not. I need at least six to be semi-coherent, eight if you actually want to hold a conversation, and coffee is a must. Otherwise run, just run.
Though I will be elsewhere this weekend I shall have a #SexySnippet ready to go live for Sunday. This one will definitely have a little heat to it. So be prepared. I figured it was only right to give you a bit of a warning. As with the last few Sunday’s it will be from C&M Security 6.
In other projects… I’m making good progress on my first stint into the Paranormal realm. The story, for the most part, is clicking nicely and coming quick. Every now and again I end up hitting a spot where my brain runs out of stuff to send through to my fingers and I sit back sorta “whoa!” as I collect myself. This leads to the need to read what I just wrote, and then hope it kick starts the creative process again. Last night I had myself a bit of a giggle since I trailed off at a critical moment in a sex scene. I had the mental image of my hero poised, ready to go, and toppling over because I couldn’t figure out what was happening next.
I know, I’m a bit odd. I think it comes with the whole “author” territory. After all we have voices in our heads that we listen to for the purpose of creating elaborate fictional worlds. Though I admit when they start arguing it’s a little weird to have to step in. LOL!
Well I think that’s about it for the moment. I have to finish packing, make sure I don’t forget my charger for either of my links to the online world (phone & computer) and I should be good to go. So, once more, Happy Easter, and enjoy the weekend! ~ Moira
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. It’s that time again, #SexySnippets Sunday. Last week I put up a post to show a little more insight into Robyn, the heroine of this story. One of the other posters of this event Ms. Doris O’Connor, who also happens to be a fabulous author (I am not above shamelessly plugging friends here!), wondered “What nightmares?”. So this week I thought I might answer that. Then I thought…hell no! Sorry Doris but you’ll have to wait like everyone else for the book to come out.
I’m evil. I know, lol!
Today’s Snippet will actually be a little insight into Grant, our hero of the story, and his family. It will be only a peek obviously, but maybe it will be enough to tempt you into wanting to check it out when it comes to e-retailers everywhere some time in May 2015. Did I mention I’m totally not above shameless plugging here?

“I like your mother just fine, unless she’s got her bridge group at the house. I’d rather be doused with honey and staked out on a fire ant hill then face that firing squad.”
The funny part was his old man wasn’t exaggerating in the least. Grant had made the mistake of going by the house on his mother’s bridge night once. Only to find himself under the judging stare of twelve women who wanted to know why he wasn’t married yet, and giving his mother the grandbabies she so deserved. In Grant’s mind he’d rather be water boarded by the best the interrogators around than face those women.
One on one they were all lovely women, but in a group they were more vicious than a rabid pack of wolves after a long, lean winter.
Happy Sunday everyone. Welcome back to another weekend of #SexySnippets. Last Sunday I managed to power through, and finished off the now titled Dangerous Reactions, C&M Security 6. I submitted it the same day, and it was accepted quite quickly. Thank you Evernight! Can’t tell you how relieved I am to have this one finally done. Pretty sure my readers are as relieved, or more that it’s slated for release in a couple of months.
Today’s Snippet is to show a little more about Robyn, the stories heroine. It gives a little more insight into who she is, and why she is. Not a lot of course since we only have 7 sentences to work with, but maybe I’ll do this again next week and you might get something more.
To set the scene Robyn has arrived to meet her partner Shawn at the location that will become the C&M headquarters. Shawn, proving what a smart and wise man he is, has brought her a caffeine infusion to help jolt her awake. Robyn takes a crack at how chipper Shawn is, and Shawn responds with…

“You’re only saying that because you didn’t get your full six hours of beauty sleep last night. You used to be such a morning person you put me to shame.”
He was right on that. Once upon a time she’d been a morning person. Up before the sun, and ready to go long before anyone had their first cup of coffee for the day. She’d even been that way right after she’d returned to civilian life. Then the nightmares had started up.
Happy Sunday all. This is a first for me taking part in this little event, so bear with me as I figure out what I’m doing, lol! The below is from my WSIP, or Work STILL In Progress of C&M Security 6. For those that have read the series, or have friended me on FB you know what this ones all about. For those that haven’t read the series, or had to listen to my complaints over these very opinionated, stubborn characters – here’s a little run down for you…
C&M 6 features the “M” of the series name and security firm I base the stories around, Robyn Matthews. It is a prequel to the entire series showing how she met her present day fiancé, Grant Sherbrooke. This is also all prior to C&M Security being what it is in the first five books of the series. In fact it’s being created during the majority of the story. I also show a few of the other characters that play parts in the other books, or have had a book themselves.
The brief scene I’m sharing below is from the first time that Robyn and Grant interact. They have just met, and the first thing that pops out of Robyn’s mouth is…

He looked stunned, and completely unsure of what to say to her.
“You’ll never believe what was in that storage room,” Shawn said as he came back into the room. He stopped on seeing the guy she’d been ogling. “I’m going to guess you’re Grant Sherbrooke?”
“You’d be right.”
Robyn nearly moaned at the wonderfully rough voice that came out of their contractor.
