#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines all about the topic TEASE for a great start to the week.


“What are you doing?” Her breath teased the hair on his brow, sending sparks of awareness to his nerve endings.

Jacquie Biggar


She kissed and teased her way down his body from his neck to his belly. His breathing accelerated as he squirmed under her touch

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


He’d wanted to tease her more, make this last longer. But he could feel his control slipping.

Claire Gem


“He’s evolved.” I immediately regretted my response. Knowing Jim, he would pounce and tease me.

Joanne Guidoccio


He teased her, awakening that part of her always starving for his touch, and when his mouth warmed her ear, a pleasured sigh escaped and she turned her head to welcome him.

Kathryn Jane


Sure she had his attention, Mia glanced up at him from under her…

#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines about SPRING for a great start to the week.


I guess I’m comfortable where I am. I have the ranch, and new foals every spring to keep me busy.”

Kathryn Jane


“This is beautiful, Brett. You must spend lots of time out here in the spring and fall. Love the fountain.”

Marsha West


Rafe emerged from Leavenworth as if it’d been Spring Break. Because he didn’t act like a man who’d been imprisoned for years.

 Sharon Wray


My imaginings took me to Trixie’s delicate hand brushing across the blue sky, creating a large banner decorated resplendently with a glittery rainbow, playful butterflies, and springtime flowers dancing in the breeze. Gag me with a spoon.

Vicki Batman


The cherry trees lining Main Street were laden with buds, the delicate pink flowers set to open within the next couple of weeks—hopefully, in time for the wedding—and birds sang…

Every story is worth reading to #EndDomesticViolence

Proud to be one of the contributing authors!!!

gabriel's wharf

This is a hard review to write, and not because the stories are a mixed bag, and not because the writing is bad. No; in fact, the writing is that good, the stories are that compelling, and— wow, this collection is twenty-one body blows with a novella for the knockout punch. Excuse the allusion to boxing, but the subject of this anthology is Domestic Violence; its purpose is to raise awareness and funds for victims of Domestic Violence. Shy of 500 pages, Betrayed showcases the insidious horror and terror DV visits on women, children, families, and the corrosive damage it inflicts on first-responders and those working in the legal profession and social services.

Without spoilers: every story is worth reading. Anthologies tend to be a hit or miss affair, so my advice is dip into one story at a time, think about it, and return for another story. Terri Lynn…

#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines about a VILLAIN/ENEMY for a great start to the week.


Fire, the enemy he’d outwitted and destroyed so many times before was as close to winning the battle for his life as it ever was.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


Thinking back, I recall one frenemy period that lasted six months.

Joanne Guidoccio


The enemy had been here. Rollins’s vile presence stained the stale air.

Kathryn Jane


“Unless you tell us something different, you’re going to be charged with murder. Joe had a lot of enemies, but he also had many friends in the justice system. Believe me, they won’t show you any mercy.”

S.A.Taylor
Shutter (work in progress)


“So, the bad guy,” she finger-quoted. “That sounds melodramatic, but I don’t have another name for him. He’s threatened Bailey directly.”

Marsha West


“Although Romeo is my enemy, Juliet is his great love. She won’t be defiled…

Volunteer of the Month – January 2018

I’m a volunteer with a different group, but we all support each other, and here is a wonderful blog by Vancouver Orphan Kittens Association.

the VOKRA blog

At VOKRA we have hundreds and hundreds of volunteers who dedicate their time to ensuring everything runs smoothly. At our Operations Centre alone there are more than 160 different volunteers who come through the doors on a weekly basis! We’re starting off 2018 by recognizing one of the many teams that are critical to ensuring the kitties in our care are healthy and happy – the Medical Team.

The primary goal of the Medical Team is to improve the overall health of all the cats temporarily staying at our Operations Center – basically to ensure they’re healthy, fed and have a clean environment to live in. The team provides them with medical care and treatments, as well as environmental and social enrichment during their shifts.
