#TeaserTuesday ~ Interlude: Caught

talcinterludenocommitFor today’s #TeaserTuesday here’s an Interlude.

What is an Interlude? (this is for those who might not know as well as a reminder.) Interlude is basically a short read (a scene) that features a couple/some of characters from one of my published books/series. It’s usually set after the end of the books that have been published. It’s a glimpse into the daily life of the couple/some of characters from one of my published books/series.

Enjoy the Interlude.

Caught
By Talia Carmichael
An Encounters Interlude
December 2015
Genre: Contemporary
Series: Encounters
Length: Interlude

Kevin slowly opened the door and listened. When he heard nothing he blew out a breath glad that Nate wasn’t home yet. He glanced behind him before he entered the house. The wiggling bundle under his clothing made him smile. Kevin opened his shirt and looked down at the dainty kitten. Those big tawny eyes blinked at him and she yawned showing off her teeth.

“Just like your Daddy. All teeth and no bite.” Kevin laughed softly as he stroked the head of the kitten that he’d gotten from Vinnie.

“Liar.” At the sound of Nate’s voice Kevin jumped.

“Damn it, Nate you almost gave me a heart attack.” He glanced to his left and scowled as he tried to hide the kitten. “I thought you weren’t home.”

“What you planning to do sneak in your other boyfriend.” Nate snickered as he came closer.

The kitten meowed and Kevin coughed trying to cover it up. He knew he failed when Nate rolled his eyes.

“Really you think I didn’t see the pussy you’re carrying.”

“I’m keeping it.” Kevin stated firmly.

“Ok.” Nate agreed readily.

To readily. Kevin looked at him suspiciously. Nate smiled widely.

“What do you want?”

“Nothing.” Nate came closer and rubbed his finger down his cheek. “Anything that gives you that look is worth keeping. Although I might get jealous. I’m the only one you should look do lovingly at.”

Nate strolled away. Kevin stared after him. He glanced at the kitten and set it on the floor. “I’ll be right back. I need to go jump your daddy.”

“I am not the father.” Nate laughed but turned looking over his shoulder and winked. “But I’ll move really slow so you can jump me properly.”

Kevin headed after him and Nate laughed as he moved in slow motion. Reaching him Kevin turned him to him and kissed him. Nate sank against him a willing captive.

Beyond the Book ~ Detour: A Way to the Heart

talc-beyondtbooktcdetourblogBeyond the Book is about the idea, insights or concepts of how a book came to be.

This month’s for Beyond the Book I’ll be giving insights into Detour (Something in Common, Book # 1).

In Detour, Miguel makes Robert some food – both chicken and dessert empanadas. As the saying goes food is the way to the heart…. or is that stomach. I think heart sounds better so I am going with “food is the way to the heart”. I think food evokes many emotions in people.

In my case my fav comfort food is hot cereal -oatmeal, cream of wheat or any of those it doesn’t matter it is about the feeling of comfort it brings to me.

If I am happy I like something with caramel or marshmallows.

When I am extremely happy or in a giddy mood I like to enjoy a slice of cheesecake.

What are some of the food or foods you like and what are the emotions they bring out in you?

Thursday Thoughts ~ History

tthistoryI’ve been going through the archives of my blog. It’s interesting reading the blogs I wrote at various times. There is so much on the blog. I even forgot I wrote some of it. It has been fun revisiting the posts I did and there is so much history on there. Not everything but even with those things I didn’t write about I can remember what was happening at some times I wrote the post.

“There’s a big truck in my yard that I wasn’t told about,” Morgan said mildly.

The narrowing of Blayne’s eyes let him know that he had heard the underlying rebuke. Blayne crossed his arms over his chest.

“If you would meet with me, as I have been asking you to do, you would know,” Blayne replied in the same mild tone.

“Tell me now.” Morgan refused to feel guilty.

“It’s the new computers for our system upgrade. They’re for in here, in the barns, and other places. Also for the breeding area,” Blayne replied.

Morgan nodded. He remembered Gibson saying something about Blayne upgrading their systems, and linking the computers that needed it to interface with the breeding operation. However, Morgan hadn’t known it would involve new computers. Blayne was shuffling papers on the desk.

“I need some place to put the equipment until I can get it all installed.”

“They’re not going to install it?”

Blayne glanced up and gave him a dirty look. “Like I would let them do that.” He went back to what he was doing.

“Fine. Put them in my office.”

Blayne paused, looking at him again. “Are you sure?”

“Go ahead. Shouldn’t be that bad,” Morgan said.

“Fine. I’m going to be swapping out the old systems for the new ones over the next few days.” Blayne picked up some papers and strode around the desk.

Morgan started after his retreating figure. Blayne paused in the office doorway.

“Is there anything else?” His tone was blatantly insolent.

“No.” Morgan bared his teeth.

Blayne leaned against the open doorway and studied him. After a few moments, he asked, “Is there a reason you’ve been avoiding me?”

Morgan stiffened. “I haven’t. I’ve been busy running my ranch.”

“Yeah, that’s what you’ve been doing. Keep telling yourself that.” Blayne made a flipping motion with his hand.

He turned and walked away. Morgan gritted his teeth. He wouldn’t admit it out loud, but Blayne’s words were very true. Gibson had filled him in on some of the things they had planned for the office, but had told him that he and Blayne needed to discuss some things. Morgan had waved it off, stating that he was too busy. Blayne could do what he wanted. He had ignored Gibson’s look and gone back to work. Blayne had been trying to get to talk to him for days, and he had been avoiding it. Morgan strode back outside. He glanced at Blayne, who was standing by the truck with the driver. Blayne glanced up, then away. A woof made him look down.

“Traitor,” he said to Dwayne.

Dwayne woofed again. Morgan patted his head. Dwayne ran to Blayne. Morgan frowned, then went to the barn. Drake waited for him by the door.

“Sure is a big truck,” Drake said.

“It’s computers. He’s upgrading them. He’s replacing the ones in various barns and places. He’ll probably need to get into your house to do the one in your office. He’s creating some sort of program to link them all.” Morgan frowned. ”He mentioned other places, too.”

“What other places?” Drake asked.

Morgan stared at him. Drake gave him a funny look.

“Morgan, you don’t know.”

Morgan pushed him out of his way. He ignored Drake’s bark of laughter.

#TeaserTuesday ~ Reaction

exsnFor today’s #TeaserTuesday here’s a peek of something I’m working on. I’m self-editing as I get it ready for submission. This is an unedited sneak peek. Also since this is sneak peek it might not make it into final submission of book.

Reaction
By Talia Carmichael
Genre: Contemporary
Series: Prentiss – Book 7

Rayven Broadhurst cursed himself for even having to be here. He hated hospitals. He eyed all the shiny torture instruments and slid off the mattress. He was out of here. He turned and held the blood soaked towel covering his hand against his chest.

“Running out on me I see.” said a cheery masculine voice behind him.

Rayven cursed that he hadn’t bolted earlier. He turned determined to leave. His breath left him as he meet the compelling gaze of the man who had to be his doctor.

Beyond the Book ~ Detour: A Common Thread

talc-beyondtbooktcdetourblogBeyond the Book is about the idea, insights or concepts of how a book came to be.

This month’s for Beyond the Book I’ll be giving insights into Detour  (Something in Common, Book # 1).

Detour is the start of a series called ‘Something in Common‘. The reasons I choose that name are numerous but the main one – common threads. I wanted to explore couples who might seem to have nothing in common and showcase that they do. Finding that other person that is for you is an adventure with twists and turns. When you first meet a person you might say “he/she is so not my type” or “we have nothing in common” yet as you get to know that person you can find that your differences are what makes your relationship work. That just that one common thing makes what you have together work.

Embracing that “Something in Common” is exhilarating and can lead to a lifetime of love. This is what the Something in Common series is all about.
