Weekend Writing Warriors-Dirigibles Are Forever Snippet 3!
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors, the perfect place to discover new authors and fall in love with their writing. Each Sunday we share 8 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
I’m continuing with my upcoming sexy steampunk Christmas novella Dirigibles Are Forever. Yes, I finally have all the details to share including a gorgeous cover by the wonderful April Martinez;). It releases December 9th, 2014 from Loose Id and is swashbuckling, tongue-in-cheek Christmas fun with a touch of James Bond, hence the title.
The story starts with Holly storming into her boss’ office and resigning. Last week Mr. Tannenbaum informed her that Jack Smith, a member from the Cardiff office who joined the London Royal Port Authority four months ago, is also supposed to work the same Christmas Eve shift Holly resigned over, making her thoughts wander. This week they wander some more until she has an idea…
“And his smile-his features were too roughly hewn to be called handsome, but his warm smile melted many things, including women’s knees. More than once Holly had needed to pinch herself to remember where she was.
She had clung to the idea of him as a new member of staff, as someone who required her assistance. Otherwise her thoughts tended to take very different and rather inappropriate paths.
Paths that involved tingles across her body and moisture between her thighs-and copious use of her personal manipulator.
But if I’m leaving anyway? the idea came out of nowhere. If I’m never going to see him again, I can fulfill a fantasy; no one will ever know.”
And here is the cover!
Have a great Sunday and as always Happy Writing!

Working as an Aether Traffic Controller saved Holly Acklin after the death of her husband, but now she wants more—including a night of uninhibited passion with Jack Smith, whose very presence has kept her body tingling for months.
Special Agent Jack Smith kept his identity a secret when he came to the London Royal Port Authority with one assignment, one he cannot fail. It holds him back from following his attraction to Holly. But on the eve he must complete the mission, Holly asks for one night with no rules or boundaries, and his control snaps.
When London experiences an unexpectedly white Christmas, all dirigible traffic is grounded, leaving Holly and Jack free to act upon their stormy passions. Holly finds her determination to stay emotion-free crumbling unaware Jack is experiencing the same need. Each lover wishes for more, but fears it can’t be. Instead they focus their desires in mind-blowing passion.
But when Holly discovers that Jack isn’t who he claimed to be, everything is thrown into turmoil. Can she trust the man she thought she knew?
