Hoping for a different answer this time. Read an excerpt from MEMORIES OF US #Romance #MMRomance #MPreg #PNR #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who visited my blog last weekend! This weekend I'm sharing one last excerpt from MEMORIES OF US, an MPreg MM Shifter Romance that is part of my Shifter Towers series. It is available as part of a limited-time MPreg collection called SPECIAL DELIVERY: SUMMER. Next weekend, I'll switch back to VAWN, which is now available for pre-order.

I get my second covid vaccine this weekend, and I'm not sure how my body will react to this one, so I may be a little slow getting to your posts, but I will visit.

Set-up: Last weekend, Hayden realized Envi had returned, but he flew away instead of talking to him.

This weekend, I'm skipping ahead again. Hayden and Envi have reunited and spent time together, but Hayden believes that when Envi's cottage is sold, the singer will return to Saramto and forget about him again. Envi has other ideas. Enjoy! (This is in Hayden's point of view.)


“I am going back to Saramto. The cottage sold, and I have to get back and work on a project for another artist. But I want you to come with me this time. I don’t want to leave you behind.”

“I can’t.” The words blurted from my mouth before my heart could stop them.

“Why?” He flicked his finger under my chin and made me look up at him. “What’s keeping you here still?”

“My job.” I turned my head away, trying hard to think of other reasons. “And I’m not exactly fit for your lifestyle.”

**And here's a little more...**

He took my hands in his, slowly letting go of me. This was it. Our second last goodbye.

“You work at a job that doesn’t pay enough for you to take care of yourself, let alone a child. Let me take care of you. And it doesn’t matter to me what anyone else thinks.”

“But I can’t ask you to do that.” I didn’t want his pity, or for him to feel somehow obligated to take care of me. I’d make do on my own, somehow. I’d survived this long by myself.

“You haven’t asked me for anything, Hayden.” He brought my hands up to his lips and kissed each of them. “I’m asking you to come with me. Again. Only, this time, I’m hoping for a different answer.”

The place where he crushed on the same omega for several summers before he became Envi's first love. But there's no way the omega he'd loved and lost still lives there. Or, maybe he does....

This Christmas calls for a special touch of magic... #CoverReveal for ON CHRISTMAS TREE COVE by @sarahvtompkins #Romance #HolidayRomance

ON CHRISTMAS TREE COVE

About ON CHRISTMAS TREE COVE:

This Christmas calls for a special touch of magic…

December was always a special time for seaplane pilot Morgan Adair, but after losing her parents six years ago, the holiday is a quiet affair. When her siblings announce plans to sell the family home, Morgan longs to experience her favorite, now-forgotten tradition one more time: a lighted tree that, for over a hundred years, has appeared floating on a boat in the harbor every Christmas Eve.

The Taylors were always rivals to the Adairs in the once-thriving fishing village of Christmas Tree Cove, but Jesse Taylor was much more. He wanted to be understanding when Morgan set aside their plans to escape to Chicago in order to hold her family together, but his future as a successful freelance photographer soared on without her.

As Morgan dives deeper into the history of the mysterious holiday appearance, she discovers that true love has always been at the heart of the annual tradition. Can the wonder of Christmas and a few surprises along the way rekindle that love for Morgan and Jesse too?

What will Hayden do when he sees Envi for the 1st time in 15 years? Read an excerpt from MEMORIES OF US #Romance #MMRomance #PNR #MPreg #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who visited my blog last weekend! Just a couple more excerpts from MEMORIES OF US, an MPreg MM Shifter Romance that is part of my Shifter Towers series. It is available as part of a limited-time MPreg collection called SPECIAL DELIVERY: SUMMER. Then I'll switch back to VAWN, which is now available for pre-order.

Set-up: Last weekend, I introduced you to Hayden, Envi's first love.

This weekend, I'm skipping ahead again to where Hayden sees Envi for the first time in fifteen years. It is important to note that Hayden is in his dragonfly form when he sees him. Also, Envi's real name is Enrique Viani. Enjoy!


Switching direction, I headed to the cottage. From what I remembered, the place had five bedrooms, a long galley kitchen, and a huge deck. The last time I was there, the place was packed for one of many family get-togethers I’d attended. Shortly after that, a lot of family stopped coming for various reasons, including Enrique.

I wasn’t able to attend Salvatore’s funeral in the city and had no idea who’d inherited the property, but I kept buzzing forward.

The green Mercedes SUV parked out front made me a little confident that whoever had arrived was supposed to be there. If someone was looking to steal furniture left behind, they’d likely have something bigger to take more, or a vehicle that didn’t stand out so much.

Zooming around the perimeter, I didn’t see anyone outside. But as I reached the front of the house, I noticed the screen door opening. Out walked Enrique.

**That's ten, and here are a few more...**

I flew straight up, feeling my heart beat hard in my thorax. It had been so long, and he looked as good as ever. I much preferred him in the faded jeans and cream button-down he wore than the flashy outfits he donned when he was Envi, showing so much bare skin to the world.

I couldn’t stay. He’d recognize this form as soon as he spotted me. And I didn’t want to talk to him. Not when he’d only leave again. What did I have to offer anyway? I wasn’t young anymore, and was carrying another man’s baby. Yet another alpha who’d left me.

Meet Hayden, Envi's first love, in this excerpt from MEMORIES OF US #Romance #MMRomance #MPreg #LGBTQ #PNR #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who visited my blog last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another excerpt from MEMORIES OF US. It is an MPreg MM Shifter Romance that is part of my Shifter Towers series. It is available as part of a limited-time MPreg collection called SPECIAL DELIVERY: SUMMER.

Set-up: Last weekend, Envi was getting ready to leave for his summer vacation, and remembering his first love whom he'd met at the place he is going.

This weekend, I'm skipping to the next chapter to show you what Envi's first love is up to. I'd like you to meet Hayden. This is in Hayden's point of view. Enjoy!


I waved to the last of the tourists before twisting and stretching my back. It never used to bother me this much, but now I was not only carrying a heavy knapsack on my back, but also a baby in the front. Only four months along, I still had over half of my pregnancy to go. But, I’d definitely started feeling the changes to my body. My stomach had gotten bigger, and my feet and hands swelled the moment I started work. My back ached. A lot. By the end of every workday, I was exhausted. And the scent of chicken made me want to gag. I’d been lucky, though, to have avoided any morning sickness.

**That's ten, and here are a few more...**

I heaved my knapsack back on and headed toward the tiny cabin I rented. A kitchen, bathroom, and one bedroom. Not much space at all. It was fine for me, but I had no idea how I was going to manage when my baby came. That is, if I decided to keep them.

I sighed, feeling the now familiar clench of my chest. I wanted to be a father. I really did. But, I wanted what was best for my baby more than anything. And I didn’t know if I could afford to give my baby the life they deserved. Not with my measly earnings. I could only hope for some miracle to come along. I rolled my eyes. Yeah, right. Even when good things happened to me, they never lasted.

Envi is trying ignore memories of him in this excerpt from MEMORIES OF US #Romance #MMRomance #MPreg #PNR #SpecialDelivery #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who visited my blog last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing an excerpt from MEMORIES OF US. It is an MPreg MM Shifter Romance that is part of my Shifter Towers series. But, it is now available as part of a limited-time MPreg Anthology called SPECIAL DELIVERY: SUMMER.

Set-up: Last weekend, Envi was getting ready to start his first summer vacation in a while. He's heading to Riekahae National Wetland Park, to his uncle's cottage where he spent his summers as a teenager.

This weekend, I'm skipping several sentences to where Envi is at home dealing with memories about his vacation destination that have come back to haunt him. Enjoy!


I unlocked the door with my key fob, then went inside, finding the place as uninviting as ever. No designer or amount of money could ever make it feel like home to me. Home meant people, and my place definitely lacked that. Though I’d never met anyone I wanted to make a home with. Not since…. Well, I couldn’t let my mind go there. That person was in the past, and I wasn’t about to run into him anytime soon. We’d gone our separate ways and moved on long ago.

I slipped off my shoes, set my bag on the hook and my keys in the dish before heading to the kitchen for a glass of wine. I needed to forget him. 

**That's ten, and here are a few more...**

I had, though. Long ago. Took all those memories of our time together and locked them away in the back of my mind. When I’d learned of my uncle’s passing, and my inheritance, those memories broke the lock and made themselves known once again. We’d first met when I’d been staying at the cottage the summer before I turned thirteen. And spent several summers as friends, and the last two as boyfriends.

My chest grew tight, and my throat felt as if it were about to close. Shit, I was desperate for that glass of wine now. Maybe a few. No. I still required the ability to drive in the morning. But I needed to forget right now.

About CELESTIAL SEDUCTION...

At the end of his obligated commitment to the Space Service, Frey Berger decides to stay on Earth to further experience human emotions rather than return to Ginnun where his intended has already mated with another. Looking for real love and someone to accept him for what he is, Frey enlists in Madame Evangeline’s popular dating service. Although he does not understand the concept of a one-night stand, he hopes to find his perfect mate.

Carrie Cooper’s husband divorced her for someone who could provide him with children, leaving her with little self-confidence and no desire to let a man hurt her again. Her best friend convinces her to join a dating service, claiming Carrie needs to get laid, while not winding up with a broken heart since her date requires no commitment after the night is over.

Although several misunderstandings nearly derail them before the date has even begun, Carrie and Frey end up becoming closer than they ever believed possible. Still, Frey will need to convince Carrie that her perfect mate isn’t human at all, and that one night can lead to a forever love.

Then I met TK. Literally smacked right into him. But no matter how much I wanted it to be true, I refused to believe that he could love a bunny shifter from the wrong part of town.
