Work in Progress Wednesday
I just wanted to get out of here, get home and soak in the jacuzzi tub. It was one of the only nice things about my studio.
I pursed my lips and changed course. If someone was really following me, I’d be safer in my car where I could lock the doors and drive away than standing around waiting for my knight in shining armor.
The wind gusted again, blowing my long strands into my face. It picked up harder now, making it impossible to see through my thick strands.
It blew hard enough it made me stumble. My foot shifted to the right as my ankle gave out. The heel snapped, sending me careening to the ground.
The blacktop bit into my hands and right knee as I hit. I cursed under my breath and looked at my hands. They had small scuffs but nothing too horrible. My knee was torn up.
Blood gushed from a cut and was already dribbling down my leg.
“Shit.” I pushed to my feet and narrowly fell over again thanks to my one heel.
I kicked off the broken shoe first and then the other, bending down to pick them up before making a beeline for my car.
I was almost there. The icy sensation was growing by the second. It didn’t help the temperature had dropped by about twenty degrees in a few seconds. Or maybe that was my imagination.
I turned around and walked backward. My heart pounded in my chest and my gaze darted around. Nothing.
Maybe I was losing my mind.
A shimmer in the black sky caught my eye. It was a fluttering clearish rainbow color almost like someone was blowing a giant bubble in the sky.
A giant bubble in the sky. Ana, you’ve officially lost your marbles.
The bubble continued to grow and I faltered, watching transfixed. It transformed into a sleek black oblong object that nearly matched the color of the night sky. If I hadn’t seen it appear, I wouldn’t know it was there.
I licked my lips as my mouth went dry. This thing didn’t look like anything I’d ever seen before. It looked…alien.
No. No way. A spaceship?
Ana, you really have lost your marbles.
My pulse roared in my ears. I back pedaled to my car, unable to tear my gaze from the ship in the sky. It really was a spaceship.
I screamed, dropping my shoes as a bright white light shone down on me like a search light.
I stumbled backward, moving as fast as I could, but the light followed me. Spinning on my heel, I dashed for my car while fumbling in my purse for my keys.
My hands shook. Tears pricked my eyes.
“Help!” I shrieked as an icy chill raced down my spine like I’d been hit by ice. My body froze and my limbs became leaden.
My hair stood on end. Weightlessness filled me and my body was thrust upward.
I screamed at the top of my lungs. My arms and legs wouldn’t move no matter how hard I tried.
The dark night sky vanished and a blinding white light surrounded me. I blinked against it, trying to make out anything. All I saw was white.

He hasn’t talked to me once, but it looks like he’ll finally have to.
Because I got him into trouble, and now we have to do night shifts together.
My one stupid mistake put him in a compromising position.
I came here to learn from him, and really, that’s all I wanted from him.

Or I could do something truly stupid.

I wasn’t ready to grow up yet....Until I saw Jude Romano.
A very grown-up man who could make any woman drool.
I’m a fresh college graduate,
Who just spent the summer traveling the country with friends.
I didn’t find love along the way,
But I did find a promising new career.
The only problem is … my father.
He’s decided to invest in launching my new career.
Just not the career I’ve chosen for myself.
He’s also decided to renovate our old summer home,
And insists that I live there with him while settling into my shiny new adult life.
No one tells my father “no.” Not even me.
That’s when Jude Romano comes along to prove me wrong in so many ways.
He has no problem resisting my father’s commands,
But I seem to have a big problem resisting Jude.
It doesn’t help that Jude is fifteen years older than me.
My dad’s head would explode over anyone I tried to date.
He’d never tolerate me seeing someone who’s closer in age to him …
… than to his own daughter.
Jude turns out to be a first for a lot of things for me,
And not just in the way he’s not afraid of my dad.
He’s the first man who’s ever made my heart race,
To make my stomach turn flips, and my legs shake.
I’ve never had a problem saving my virginity …
Until he walks into my life.
Will I ever learn to resist him? Or will we just have to see how long we can keep our steamy affair a secret from everyone we know?

Look what is up for preorder!
I always told myself Kat was the girl I was going to marry.
She’s magnificent. Charming. Dedicated. Beautiful.
And a workaholic.
We always said we’d chase our dreams together. Then her mom died, and she did everything she could to live up to her dad’s expectations—even when it meant giving up her dreams and me.
I have everything I want in life, except her.
When I find out her brother is getting married at my parent’s beach house in Hawaii, I convince my mom to invite me. Seven days in Hawaii should be more than enough time to convince her we are meant for each other.
Until I realize she brought her work with her.
And her brother’s fiancé has our days and nights planned out for us.
And her dad invited his new young hot shot lawyer that has his eyes on Kat. He already has daddy’s seal of approval too.
I have my work cut out for me. I can’t fail, because if I do, I might lose my chance with her for good.
One more big case and I’ll make partner. It’s everything I’ve spent the last six years working for.
The deal is in the bag until I learn my brother is getting married in Hawaii in a little over a week. What kind of sister would I be if I didn’t go?
I can work and attend the wedding, right? That’s what video calls are for.
It’s not that easy. Jake is there. My childhood best friend who I’ve always had a crush on. He’s the bad boy that my dad would never approve of. He’s the distraction that I don’t need.
But my body craves him. He makes me laugh and for the first time in forever, I’m having fun.
It would never work. We are too different now, living in two different worlds. A relationship with him would destroy everything I’ve been working for. It’s not something I can risk, no matter how big a temptation he is.

He was just a sexy friend of mine, and then somehow we were filming videos together for a living.
Hold on… it’s not what you think, though.
Let me cut to the chase.
I quit my day job band replaced it with a job at a company owned by my one of my oldest and best friends, Ethan Paul.
Sounds like a dream, right?
Best friend for a boss. Whoop-de-doo!
Except it was just the opposite of that.
I think I’m in love with him… but my co-worker, April, wants him all to herself.
Oh, and there’s the whole me getting pregnant with Ethan’s baby dilemma.
No, I’m not naming the baby Dilemma — the sentence just reads that way.
On top of that, the company fan base thinks Ethan and April look fabulous together.
Well, there goes my heart flying and crashing into a wall.
Yeah, I’m pretty screwed.
How am I supposed to navigate my feelings that weren’t supposed to exist in the first place while hiding my pregnancy from the world… including the baby daddy?
And what are we supposed to tell the fans when they find out the truth about Ethan?
Right, we’re both screwed and there’s no happily ever after in sight… or is there?
