Frozen in Grand Central Station

This is soooooo cool



Friday Flash

I must have cried myself to sleep, because when I woke not only was I freezing, but the room was completely dark. I drew in a deep breath and held it. There’s no reason to be afraid. There’s nothing hiding in the shadows. No one at all. Malcolm is in the other room. Memories of another time and another place surfaced to haunt me. There was a reason I avoided the dark. He’d come to me once before in the dark. He’d said that when the time was right he’d be back for me.
I prayed now was not the time.
Something moved in the far corner of the room. The closet door creaked as it slowly opened. The eyes that stared out at me weren’t human. Not human at all.


My reward

Thank you KIM for my reward for finishing my last story ;)

Just looking at him inspires me.
Of course how I'll actually write with that image on my screen I have no idea.

Where was I?

Paul Hammond is dead. That’s what tough and sexy LAPD Detective Daniel Moran tells his lover, Hollywood actor Sean Fairchild—and Sean wants to believe him, but what about those threatening postcards in Hammond’s handwriting? What about the fact that he’s seeing Hammond everywhere he goes? Yes, Sean’s had some emotional problems in the past, but that was a long time ago and he’s not imagining things, so why is Dan looking at him that way?

The last thing Sean needs is someone doubting him, especially when he’s competing against the odds for the coveted leading role in the screen adaptation of The Charioteer. But then again, as ex-lover and manager Steve points out, what does Sean really know about his new boyfriend? Dan is a dark horse—and maybe Sean is betting too much on this relationship.

He can’t afford to take foolish chances. It not just Sean’s career at stake or his relationship or even his sanity—it’s his life.

Publisher’s note: this book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: m/m homoerotic sex practices.

I have three things to say about this book and the author.
2-Josh Lanyon is an amazing writer.
3-You have to read this book.

Okay, so maybe I have more things to say.
I sat down tonight and read this story from beginning to end. In one sitting. My kids are just finishing dinner now and it's 8:57pm as I type this. Yes, dear CP's I used a !. I think most exclamation marks are overused, but for this !!!!!! I think I need several more.

My thoughts on this author - Josh Lanyon is a must read. The characters are believable, the story fast paced, and the writing smooth, captivating, and flawless.
Hard to believe, isn't it? My internal editor shut up and remained silent through the entire book. If there was an error I missed it.

Even now, an hour after I finished reading the story, it is still with me, in my head, wanting to be discussed.

When I started reading, I thought, how in the world would I ever identify with Sean? He's an actor for crying out loud. Well, he's also gay, but that doesn't bother me :)
From the start I was drawn into the suspense. The emotional development is well done, and so was the story as the action unfolded. I am so happy to say that I guessed it right. LOL I knew whodunnit. Yay me. But it was written so well that I kept going, please let me be right, please let me be right as I read the story. Josh Lanyon will keep you glued to the screen while you read this book. It's not one you can conveniently put down and pick back up again later. Curse my contracted story that made me wait so long for this delicious goody. And I have to say it, Dan is just YUMMY!!!!

I'd definitely recommend this book, and will now be looking for other books by this author.

Maniac Monday

Thank you Dad! For enabling my procastination and enteraining me LOL
(no he doesn't read this but I had to thank him anyway!)

1. A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. The flight attendant looks at him and says, "I'm sorry, sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger."

2. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. The one turns to the other and says "Dam!"

3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly, it immediately sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

4. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says "I've lost my electron." The other says "Are you sure?" The first replies "Yes, I'm positive."

5. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal? His goal: transcend dental medication.

6. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why?", they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said," I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

7. A woman has identical twins and is forced to give them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, "They're identical twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

8. A group of friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop. Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only Hugh can prevent florist friars.

9. Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and, with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him (Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good) a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

And finally,

10. There was the person who sent ten different puns to friends with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.

Friday Flash

A light rain drizzled down upon them, then ceased as Sandra lifted her arms up in the air, holding her athame up high. “Hail to the elements! Welcome to the Lady and Lord! We stand between the worlds surrounded by light, love and power.”

Sandra poured wine onto the ground for the Lady and Lord, and turned to face Camryn.

“I know we’ve done spells before, but the power you five hold is amazing,” Camryn said.

Macy bit back a smart assed retort. While Camryn’s comment was not only inappropriate, it was also bad timing. If she responded it would only compound things.

“Are you ready to begin, Camryn?” Sandra asked.

“I’m not sure where to start. I did spells for love, money, health, a job and looks.”

“Did you follow my instructions?”

“Yes, I did. But--”

“No buts. Get your spells in order, dear. Job, looks, health, love, money. Please start when you are ready.”

Camryn nodded, but looked nervously around the circle while Sandra piled small oak twigs inside the cast iron cauldron. Camryn rifled through her papers until she produced the one she wanted. After reading the paper, she reached for the Frankincense candle and lit it. “Please cleanse me, as I reverse the spells I cast in ignorance.”

The flame flickered, but held strong. Then Camryn drew in a deep breath, looked down at the sheet and repeated the spell. Fortunately, this time the flame stayed strong and true. When she finished, she dropped the paper in the cauldron. It burned with a brilliant flash of light.

Camryn smiled and looked around the circle before she pulled out the next spell. As she read this one her confidence was more assured, but that didn’t comfort Macy in the least. Camryn was a walking accident.

When Camryn finished the last spell, she dropped the papers into the cauldron. A huge flame leapt out and split into five separate flames. One shot at each corner, and the last at Sandra as she stood next to the altar.

A flame hit her dead in the chest, sending her flying over the sandy beach. Macy gulped in salt water as she immediately sank into the ocean. Panic clutched at her chest as she tried to claw her way back to the surface. How far out had the magic thrown her? Why hadn’t they guessed that Camryn was still working for her old coven?

Her limbs felt heavy and sluggish, and the salt water burned her throat, but Macy continued to work feverishly to reach the surface. Her head broke free once, and she sucked in a deep painful breath before she sank back under. Trying not to panic, Macy remembered all the things her swimming instructor had once taught her, but it didn’t do a bit of good. With her arms and legs refusing to respond, she was rapidly sinking to the bottom of the ocean. Her last thought was of Trevor and how much she still loved the power hungry, lying son-of-a-bitch.

Maniac Monday

So for my next installment of Maniac Monday.

Last night we're just being goofs. My husband was chasing the munchkins and one got hurt. As usual. Okay when you chase 4 kids through a kitchen, dining room, foyer and living room someone is bound to get hurt. At least nothing was broken.

My 5 year old comes to me crying because her finger is bleeding. She's scratched it between the sofa and floor. (You'd think hardwood floors would keep them from diving on the floor - no.)

I tried to cheer her up as I cleaned and bandaged her finger. "At least you didn't lose it."

She sniffled. Then says, "I know. I need my pointer finger to read."

I burst into hysterics. She's in kindergarten and points as she reads. Plus her first thought was that she needs to read, not that she needs the finger to play or write or whatever.

My husband - smart ass that he is - says "You also need your finger to pick your nose." She giggled and jumped off me and ran to play again.



As Marge Simpson says "It's aged me horribly."

Free Reads and Romance Divas

I am happy to share two links with you.

One is to a bunch of free stories written for your pleasure.

The second link is direct to my story on my website.

Happy Valentine's Day!


odds and ends

I skipped Thursday Thirteen because I'm stuck with sicklings. I finally got the rest off to school and now the youngest has caught the stomach virus. Lucky me.

I posted on Torrid Temptations today:

I hope you enjoy the few tips on spicing up your love life. I wanted to do more but my son comes before blogging.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Wacky Wednesday

So today I'm gonna post about my kids. Why? Because they constantly amuse me. (Which is a good thing since some days they drive me insane.)

Last night my husband, son and I are snuggling in bed watching Scooby Doo. It's the one with Chill in the title I think. The one with the Yeti. My son was being a nudge as little boys tend to be (at least in my experience). He started with "Are you looking at me?" I started laughing because he was facing the tv and looking at me out of the corner of his eye. He repeats "Are you looking at me?" I respond with "Yeah, I'm looking at you." His response? "Can I help you?" I started to cry I was laughing so hard. My husband was laughing and we'd set each other off.

Even though they drive me insane, days like today make me remember it's worth staying up all night with a sick kid.

In other news, my oldest got a free day. We had a two hour delay, and since the other two were home with a stomach virus I left them with my sleeping son and walked her to the corner for the bus. Where we stood in rain just above freezing temperatures to wait 35 minutes for the bus. At which point she was soaked, her shoes, her pants, and she was crying. I sent her home and stood at the corner with the other boys because two of them said their parents had already left for work and they couldn't go home (Couldn't get in their house.) After 45 minutes the bus arrives, empty. I called the school and said that my daughter would not be there today because the bus didn't come. And she said, they are running beind, they should be there any minute. I said, no. 45 minutes in the rain with ice and now on the ground is unreasonable. Especially since the OTHER bus to the same school (that goes past our bus stop every morning) was only 10 minutes later than it should have been, not 45. The elementary school bus came at it's normal pick up time, and arrived before the middle school bus. Plus the bus hadn't even arrived to pick them up until AFTER school had started. So they said they would excuse her. Why should I lie and say she's sick when they had a group of kids stand in the rain and sleet and snow and ice for 45 minutes. Cranky? Nah. When I was a kid and the bus didn't come it was a free day. My oldest just got her first taste of a free day. Don't you wish you had a mom like me? *snickers*

Tuesday Tidbit

Continuing my theme to get myself to post daily, I'm going to do a Tuesday Tidbit, but only when I have something interesting to say. LOL

In my research I discovered that Sassafras was once used to make rootbeer. Now, I already knew that. I used to live in the country where people made their own rootbeer. (We actually made our own ice cream too, but that's another story.) And I remember as children my brother and I would break twigs off of the sassafras tree to chew/suck on because we were told it had the flavor of rootbeer. (That no longer being true as it is no longer used to make rootbeer.) (And what do you expect from kids who thought walnuts came from the walls because whenever our neighbor was around they'd magically appear and bounce around.) It turnd out that Sassafras is used to make E. Kind of funny to me that Coca Cola used to contain cocaine. So this morning I was giggling my patootie off because we used to get free drugs with every drink. Of course it isn't the same as the processed material and the 'useable' drug, but it still strikes me funny.

So you'll no longer find Sassafras in rootbeer or in make up products. I guess it absorbs into the skin? I'm not sure. Why would they use sassafras for makeup anyway? rootbeer flavoring? hehehe.


Monday, February 11, 2008

Maniac Monday

I decided to make today Maniac Monday because my son is driving me insane. And why shouldn't he? The others are all in school and mommy is supposed to spend the day playing (let's forget she has deadlines-and you can't explain them to a 3 year old anyway!)

So what am I doing on this Maniac day? Spending the day playing Diner Dash Flo on the Go (the vacation one) and I would rather have more options for decorating the room than changing her clothes. Because of the way it is set up, you don't get to win all the decorations for each level. My cruise ship, train and submarine are sadly lacking. (I haven't won the game yet, but I have all experts LOL)

Yes - I am THAT ANAL. I missed expert on one level I became obsessed. I played it until I beat it. Fortunately, some levels I get expert on the first try, but if I don't, LOOK OUT FLO!!! LMAO

My husband has walked in to hear me saying "Just order already damn it!" or "What the hell are you waiting for?" "Come on come on idiots!"

Of course this cracks me up. I remember my mom came to visit once. We had the Playstation. I forget which one it was. She died in 2000 so it might have been PS or PS2. We opted not to get the PS3 since we went through TWO PS2's and have nothing to show for it but two dead PS2's. I sent one back to them to fix and they sent it back saying to keep dust off the unit. (LMAO) I have cans of dust off and electronic wipes. My husband works in computers and I spend all my free time on computers and used to work on them all day when I did. I really don't think it is dust that killed both my PS2 units. Honestly. Do I need to clean it every night? So we've given up on playstation BUT I lost my thread. LOL

Sooo my mom was a character she would move the controller the direction she wanted it to go and would yank it up to make it jump. (She was fun on the Nintendo playing Mario, let me tell you. Watching her was too much fun.)

Guess some silliness is hereditary ;)

Friday Flash

“Get in, get out.”

Ivana steeled her spine as she slipped her hand into a small pouch on her belt and pulled out one of her favorite devices. Too high tech for her to understand, it opened any lock in three seconds flat, and deactivated alarm systems. After it worked it’s magic, she slipped the gadget back in the pouch and patted it for a job well done. The only perks of this job were the lovely tools and gadgets provided for her.

A quick glance around assured she was alone. Ivana opened the door and slipped inside. She shut the door, and with the press of a button, the door was locked once more, and the alarm reactivated.

If her information was accurate, there wasn’t much time. Even worse, if she didn’t accomplish her mission before the moon reached its zenith, the deal would be off, and she’d be imprisoned once more. Damn the king and his ultimatums.

Determination fueled her as Ivana walked through the outer office. Even though her mark had left for dinner, he’d be back soon. Whatever he was working on he must be important for so many people to want it. She needed to procure it before anyone else did. And once she killed him and grabbed his research disks, she could get out of here and start celebrating her freedom.

Two shadows blocked the pale moonlight. Her breath caught in her throat. The mark should be alone. How and where did he pick up a friend in such a small amount of time? Friend or foe, she couldn’t take out both of them without knowing who and what the second man was.

Ivana looked for a hiding spot as she activated her belt. The power in the belt hummed to life. Not a hum one could hear, but a vibration she felt throughout her entire body. The special technology allowed anyone wearing the catsuit to become invisible until deactivated.

In one leap, she jumped and landed on top of a tall sturdy filing cabinet and perched there, holding her breath as she listened for her prey.

The alarm system deactivated as the door unlocked and opened. Several lights clicked on, bathing the room in industry yellow.

“See, no one in here, Derek. You’re a good bodyguard, but a little jumpy. If you weren’t so highly recommended…”

“And you know we have to find this Chameleon. You’re next on his hit list. We’ve lost too many lives and secret projects to this head hunter.”

Hit list? How did he get a hold of the information? Does Uriel know of the leak?

“Why don’t you go get me a cold beverage from that place down the street? Your nervousness is messing with my mojo.”

Pleasure rippled through her body as she recognized the smaller, rounder male. His blonde hair and blue eyes remained unchanged from the image she’d been shown on the video. He was sending away his only hope of survival. This was too easy. Thank the gods this was her last hit and then her sentence would be over. The Chameleon suit would be passed on to another poor soul, but that wouldn’t be her problem.

The second man, much taller and more devastating in his appearance, looked around the office as if he knew someone was there. Watching. Waiting. Finally, he looked back at his boss.

“I’m not nervous. I’m cautious. And I don’t think that’s a good idea. You hired me for security, not to leave you alone.”

“Right. I hired you. You’re hovering over me, Derek. I need a minute to breath.”
Speaking of breathing. The need to breathe overwhelmed her. Ivana slowly let out a breath and drew in some much needed air. Derek’s head swiveled her way and she froze again. His blue eyes seemed to pierce through her invisible armor. His mouth curved in a wicked grin, and he winked.

The vibration of her suit hiccupped, stopped, then started again. Shit. Not again. Ever since the power source had been stolen, there had been problems with the suit. Uriel warned her that it didn’t matter. She had to accomplish her missions, anyway. With or without the special abilities.

“I’ll get you a drink after you go in your office, lock your door, and turn on your personal office alarm.”

ideas and caridad :)

So when I was visiting Caridad Pineiro's blog.

I LOVE how she has it set up. There is something going on EVERY single day. It's not one of those blogs you go to and sigh because there is nothing new posted. Not only that but I amused myself for over an hour at her site.

Let's not mention her delicious hunk pictures or I'll start drooling again.

So I'm trying to think about what I want to do on here. I'm not gonna copy her, but I think it's a fab idea and I want to start doing Friday Flash again and have at least two other days where I post consistantly. But wait it will dig into my writing time won't it? bahhhhh talking is fun!!

I'm open to ideas and suggestions. Oh, I'm also going to be doing the 250 word flash fiction on Wednesdays on the Loose ends blog.


New Review, and one I haven't posted before

This is just part of the fabulous review Amanda from Romance Junkies gave Weekend Menage:
Five Blue Ribbons:
WEEKEND MENAGE by Michelle Hasker is wickedly erotic. This story is sure to leave you breathless and hot and bothered! Michelle Hasker is a phenomenal writer who really knows how to pack a punch with her short stories. She's definitely one of my favorite authors and each of her stories leaves you feeling complete when you're finished reading.

and another review I found today on the same site:
Five Blue Ribbons:
THE BODYGUARD: NASH is one hell of a start to a new series from the amazingly talented Michelle Hasker. This story just exploded with passion from the very first page and keeps you on the edge of your seat in carnal delight until the very end. Nash is downright sexy! ....... She fights him tooth and nail for her independence which makes for some very interesting and humorous dialogue between the two. When these two come together, objects literally explode around them! THE BODYGUARD: NASH is a rare gem in the paranormal world of writing and I'm completely addicted. I cannot wait for the next story in this series!
the other review isn't live yet :)

Love them as much as I do?

Then come read excerpts and post your own.
Busy tonight? Then come tomorrow and read what you've missed ;)

Nash has been Reviewed! Thrice!

LOL I didn't know until I got the review listing from Loose, that Nash had received three reviews!

The first from Literary Nymphs:

The Bodyguard: Nash is the second and newest release in Ms. Hasker’s bodyguard series. The attraction between Vickie and Nash is instantaneous and almost violent in its intensity and the sparks literally fly whenever they get in the same room. The story is well written, is fast paced, filled with sizzling hot sexual encounters, and has great integration of the characters from the previous book. Ultimately these two are perfect lovers and partners. The question is whether their desire and lust can turn into love and trust that will last forever.

With the hints given in this book, I’m eagerly waiting for Sorin’s book to find out how this extended plotline plays out. The ending only leaves you wanting to know more.

And second from JERR:

Tallyn Porter from JERR gave Nash: 4 Stars and a heat level H

Nash is the second installment of The Bodyguard series which can be read independently. Nash is a charming, alpha and overprotective man who has found his true mate in an independent, strong-willed and powerful witch named Vicki. He loves her unconditionally, while she doesn't quite seem to trust him just yet until she comes to realize that they belong together. The intimacy they share is passionate and very hot which includes oral stimulation, voyeurism and a little bit of BDSM to spice up their romance. The sex scenes were very titillating and seductive, yet full of emotions due to Nash giving up his control to Vicki. I found that the secondary characters from the first story, Nic, Elena and Sorin, help to create the mystery and pending threat without overshadowing the main focus of Vicki and Nash's relationship. I enjoyed the meticulous details and scenery within this tale making magic very realistic in this story. The steps that Nash goes through to help Vicki with her powers make him such a caring character and makes me love him even more. I haven't read Nic and Elena's story but with their appearance in this book, I definitely want to get to know them even more. I look forward to the next installment of this interesting series.

You must belong to the JERR yahoo group to be able to access this review in the Jan 29th edition of their ezine.

And last but NOT least:

Night Owl Romance:
Night Owl romance reviewer Dee gave Nash 4.5 and named it a Top Pick

The Bodyguard: Nash is a fast paced 71 page erotically entertaining story with conflict �good guys and bad guys - and a heroine that stumbles through life until her mate shows her the way. The settings have just enough color as the characters actions are the focus. Their amorous sex scenes tantalize rewarding author Michelle Hasker a gold star for a climactic job - well done. The plot is easy to follow with personable characters; perceivable settings, erotic love scenes, and conflict all in a neat little package.
