Today I welcome TC Collins to the blog. Rayne’s Temptation is now available for sale. Yay!
I’ve got all kinds of goodies for you, courtesy of TC. An excerpt and a character interview! Hope you enjoy! The buy links are below as well.
Rayne Thurston has just left an abusive relationship, and the only thing he wants to do is live a peaceful life. But his new job is anything but peaceful. Rayne’s boss, Colin Edwards, is always on his case and to top it off, Rayne finds himself attracted to the powerful businessman. As the two fight the attraction between them, danger stalks Rayne. Will the two be able to overcome their differences to find their happily ever after?
Be Warned: m/m sex
Strong hands grabbed Rayne’s waist and pulled him back into a tall, muscular chest. “You look so damn sexy. It makes me want to fuck you in front of everyone and show them who you belong to,” a husky voice whispered in his ear.
Rayne jumped, his heart thundering. It was Colin! He tried to turn, but the hands gripping him kept him in place. Looking up, Rayne gasped. Colin’s dark hair fell across his eyebrows. Jade-colored eyes were hot enough to scorch the Sahara desert. The steady beat from the music and Colin’s body leading his in a slow, provocative dance melted any resistance Rayne had.
He’d promised himself tonight was about fun. Why should he deny himself the pleasure of indulging in his secret fantasy? Monday would take care of itself, but tonight Rayne was going to follow the sexy CEO all the way to the end.
Losing himself in the music and Colin’s wandering hands, Rayne melted against the body behind him. Colin plastered himself to Rayne’s body, grinding his stiff cock against Rayne’s ass. Rayne shuddered and pushed back against Colin, enjoying the strong arms that embraced him. He’d never felt so sexy before. Colin was awakening feelings in him he’d never experienced before, and he wanted more. Continue reading “New Release: Rayne’s Temptation”

While at Politics & Prose in D.C., I picked up The English Assassin by Daniel Silva. The book immediately caught my interest, and even though it is book #2 in the series, I decided I’d give it a try (P&P didn’t have book 1).
I have to say that I had no issue following the story without having read The Kill Artist so don’t worry if you find yourself in the same boat as me.
The Unlikely Spy, Daniel Silva’s extraordinary debut novel, was applauded by critics as it rocketed onto natio
nal bestseller lists. Now Silva has outdone himself, with a taut, lightning-paced thriller rooted assuredly in fact: Switzerland’s shameful WWII record of profiteering and collaboration with Nazi Germany.
When art restorer and occasional Israeli agent Gabriel Allon is sent to Zurich, Switzerland, to restore the painting of a reclusive millionaire banker, he arrives to find his would-be employer murdered at the foot of his Raphael. A secret collection of priceless, illicitly gained Impressionist masterpieces is missing. Gabriel’s handlers step out of the shadows to admit the truth-the collector had been silenced-and Gabriel is put back in the high-stakes spy game, battling wits with the rogue assassin he helped to train.
Tense, taut, expertly crafted, and brimming with unexpected reversals, The English Assassin is Daniel Silva at his storytelling best.

Don’t be intimidated by the length…you will be intrigued from the start and have no problems getting to page 437. Gabriel Allon is a likable hero. He’s had a tragic past and now works his butt off as a part-time spy and part-time art restorer. He is savvy and smart and totally dedicated to his work.
