Are you sitting nice and comfy? May I offer you a nice cup of tea and a delicious scone? Or would you prefer a slice of Bakewell tart or a cucumber sandwich?
I have only ever talked about the sequel to Rescue by Ruin as Sexy Steampunk 2, but I can finally reveal the details;).
Drum roll please! *badum tish*
Sequel to Rescue by Ruin.
Sarah Rigdon is desperate. Penniless with taxes due, she can either beg mercy from the ruthless tax collector or turn to the last man she wants to ask for help.

When he agrees to help, Sarah thinks her luck has turned. But she should have known nothing with Archer is ever easy.
Archer and his lover Warren Dorvee have spent years searching for the right woman to complete their family. Both believe luscious Sarah is the one and now have a chance to pursue her. After all, the price of Archer’s help is for Sarah to pose for Warren’s latest painting. Nude.
But trust has to be earned and a crisis in London threatens their love. The three must navigate through lust, lies and secrets or risk being torn apart forever.

Danger by Dalliance releases next Wednesday, April 16th. It is a sequel to Rescue by Ruin, but either story can be read independently. My blog tour starts on May 5th, but before then I have stops in a few different places. I will share the details as soon as I have them.
Happy Friday! What are your plans for the weekend?
I have joined the Weekend Writing Warriors. Click on the link to find all participants.
I am sharing 8 sentences from my current untitled WIP Sexy Steampunk 2, the sequel to Rescue by Ruin. Warren has just met the young woman Archer has feelings for and would like to bring in as their third in late Victorian London.
“Archer leaned forward and kissed Warren. “She is the one for me.”
Warren nodded. “I know.”
Anxiety curled through Archer’s stomach. “And you?”
Warren cupped Archer’s cheek and kissed him softly. “She grabbed me by the throat the minute I saw her.” He stroked his finger across Archer’s cheek.”
Thanks for stepping by and join me next Sunday to find out more about how Archer and Warren deal with this change in their lives.
Here is my Sneak Peek Sunday. Click here to check out all the other great excerpts.
This is a snippet from “Dirigibles Are Forever”, a steampunk story I finished a little while ago.
Jack stole across the hangar, keeping the bodies of the dirigibles between himself and the drone. Finally he found the ideal space at the back propeller of his own dirigible, the Highwayman, which had a circular open space before it. The drone slowly rolled through the space, sensors alert.
He lined up his shot, his arm movement hidden behind the propeller. The gun popped and the bolt whistled across. It hit exactly where Jack had aimed for, the center of its clockwork mechanism. The bolt silenced the alarm and froze the machine in place, but didn’t shut it down, which would have set off a secondary alarm.
He shoved the pistol back into his pocket and strode forward. His machinations had paid off. The Bismarck was parked beside his Highwayman. Jack tilted his head so his face remained hidden and pulled his tools out of his pocket.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Here is my Sneak Peek Sunday from my current, unnamed WIP. It is the sequel to Rescue by Ruin.
“Warren smiled, love and arousal bringing out the gold in his eyes. “You had enough tension racing through you to crack a wall.” He rubbed his fingertips across Archer’s cheek. “What happened? Has the indomitable Miss Rigdon thrown you in a spin again?”
Archer sank onto the sofa, which was wide enough they could lie side by side, and leaned into Warren’s touch. When they’d moved in together four years ago, well aware of what would happen if anyone ever discovered their true relationship, they’d sworn never to lie to each other.
He leaned forward and kissed Warren. “She is the one for me.”
Have a great week!
