I’m truly a creature of habit. Tis a Sunday afternoon here and I’m doing my author life while hubby is out running errands. What time of day is most productive for you?
This week I’m posting from the brand new release ‘Aria” (Upstaged 4) which came out Jul 12th on Extasy Books. (link below)

Click on the link below the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci-fi.
Blurb: You think you’re holding someone close, but if you’re not paying attention, they could slip right out of your arms and fall.
Asher and Erik are getting married, but Asher isn’t happy about the pressure being put on him by their families and unwittingly by Erik himself. Issues that have plagued him for a long time come bubbling to the surface and threaten to overwhelm him. Although he cries out for help, no one hears; instead they write it off as Asher throwing a tantrum again. Only Angel sees the cracks, but it’s too much for him to handle on his own, although he tries.
The pressure builds, and even though there are breakouts, still no one sees the extent of the problem until the night before the wedding, when Asher is confronted by Erik in front of all their family and friends, and bolts.
Fortunately, Asher is rescued by Vince’s Uncle Tony, who makes him an offer he can’t refuse.
The Band heads off to London for a three-month tour, and not everyone is happy about it. Vince is stressed out and worried that Angel is not being entirely faithful. Should he say something? Then Connor meets an old friend, just when he starts having doubts about his relationship with Angel, and the fur starts to fly.
Will any of the couples survive?
This week we skip ahead a bit later into the conversation amongst the friends. Someone mentioned ‘wedding’ and Asher is none too happy….
Erik waggled his eyebrows in mock horror. “For heaven sake, Vince. Don’t say the W word in front of Asher. He might explode…or kill someone.”
Asher punched him in the arm, none too gently, and scowled. “I told you from the very start this would get out of hand and we’d have been better off eloping. But no, Mr. Von Nordgren had to have his day in the spotlight. Not as if he doesn’t have enough of them. I knew damn well as soon as the women got their hands on it, things would get out of control.” He said women as if it was a swear word. “I feel like I’ve been catapulted into hell and surrounded by she-demons, constantly beating me over the head with seating plans and menus and flowers.” He shuddered. “Can you believe my mother actually believes she’s going to get me into a suit?”
“And so she will,” Daisy said, firmly. “It’s your wedding. You have to be smart.”
“What’s smart about wearing a suit? When have you ever seen me wearing a suit?”
“At Grandma’s funeral.”
“It wasn’t a suit. It was black slacks and a vintage jacket with silver buttons and—” “It was close to a suit,” Daisy snapped, “and this time it’s your wedding.” She sat back as if the point was decided.
