Ghost and Macy are shaping up to have a longer story than Brian and Candace. I’m sure that’s probably good news to you guys, but I’m not so sure it’s good news to me. More work! lol. After numerous starts and stops, after completely scrapping chapters upon chapters and crying and starting over from scratch more times than I care to admit, Leave Me Breathless now stands at 70K words. That’s novel length. A shorter novel, but still a novel. And there’s still some story to tell. So I’m looking at a true 100K novel for them. To think it was originally supposed to be only a novella. Ha! Looks like I got carried away, right? There’s just so much to these guys.

I think this is the first book I’ve published that had a title before I was done with it. It’s certainly the first to already have its dedication written before I’ve even submitted it. Believe me, I know *just* who this one is for. :-)

    Since you have more words to write…some of them can involve more of B&C and their steamy moments. Pretty pretty please! *huge teary eyes*

    As far as regards G&M….so happy theirs is a novel…novellas suck when you have characters to die for!

    I’m looking forward to Ghost’s sense of humor….among the other things…hihiihi

    I don’t really have time to spend on B&C’s steamy moments–I’ve still got a lot of story to tell in 30K words (wordy as I am, it’s really not all that much)! :) But Brian plays a big part in Ghost & Macy’s relationship toward the end. He’s a good friend.

    Steamy moments…for me just to have B in a scene is wonderful, and when he and Candace are together I’m over the moon. Just their presence makes me squeal.

    I’m curious to find out if Regina ( is thi Ghost’s ex-girlfriend’s name?) is bitchy bitch or funny bitch of stupid bitch…go Macy! make her see who you are! and scream Seth is yours!

    Raina. She is a CRAZY bitch. But Macy ain’t scared. ;)

    Just for you, here’s a little intro…
    Five minutes into the design, Starla made the announcement they all dreaded to hear. “Oh, hell. Psycho ex incoming.”

    It was met with the usual panicked chorus of “Whose?!”—they all had them, unfortunately—but Ghost had a familiar sinking feeling in his gut without even looking up. His own psycho ex was like a bloodhound. He’d been back in town for six hours, and she’d already sniffed him out. He knew it.

    The door dinged as it opened. Starla cheerfully called out “Hi, Raina!”

    Damn, damn, triple damn. He still didn’t look up, even as Raina struck up a brief conversation with Starla as if the two had ever liked each other. Starla, bless her, was trying to run interference for him, but she wasn’t having any luck. Raina made a beeline for him.

    “Hey, you. When did you get back?”

    That throaty voice, purring into the mic at their gigs, purring into his ear, had once driven him wild. Now it was like nails down a chalkboard. Finally, he threw her a glance. Tiny, ferocious and—he couldn’t deny it—completely fucking crazy from her multicolored dreads to her heavy black boots, she wasn’t someone he’d wanted to welcome him home tonight. Shit.
