Excerpt from NEW Romantic Suspense DEADLINE by Scarlet Hawthorne OUT TODAY! #MySexySaturday

Good morning, dear readers!
If you want to join me for coffee this morning, you can find me at the Louisiana Book Festival in Baton Rouge until five o'clock tonight. PLEASE BRING COFFEE.

I will be there all day signing my books along with fellow suspense authors George Sanchez and Scarlet Hawthorne, who happens to be launching a new novel TODAY! As part of her book release blog tour, she is also offering a giveaway, so be sure to sign up in the Rafflecopter down below.

On Tuesday, I hosted Scarlet for coffee for the cover reveal of this Tabasco-hot romantic suspense Deadline; and as I have been so consumed with my soul-sucking day job, preparing for the book festival, as well as my own writing, since she is launching her new book this Saturday, I have volunteered my blog so that she can give you all a sneak peek at Deadline in today's My Sexy Saturday!

This week, the theme is "Date Night," and this tiny excerpt from Scarlet is during the second (or maybe possibly considered the third) date between the hero and heroine of Deadline. After you read this, you will be running to the grounds of the State Capitol to get a signed copy!

  He pressed his lips to hers, sharing a kiss ripe with promise and demand, sending shockwaves of sensation through them both.
  She whined when he sat up, releasing her mouth and her wrists and withdrawing his hand from between her legs. “I have to stop a second,” he said, then brought his wine glass to his lips with an unsteady hand. “Whew.” He ran his fingers through his hair then glanced back to where she lay with a slight smile aimed at him.
  She raised herself up part way, her head braced on one hand with her elbow on the couch and asked, “Do you want me to go?”
  He set his glass down then turned to her and shook his head, grinning back at her with fire in his eyes. “No, I want you to come.”

 DEADLINE Synopsis

After her erotic romance novels become international bestsellers, writer Gillian Tate cannot enjoy her long-sought success once her husband files for divorce and she becomes the target of threats from a religious fringe hate group; but when she tries to find peace in the solitude of a remote lakeside cabin to complete the third novel in the trilogy, not only does she meet the man who can fulfill her secret desires, she also finds she hasn’t escaped danger by leaving the city. 

When the Adirondack town's police chief Sam Taylor learns of the threats and checks in on the notorious author, he is surprised to find she is nothing like he would have expected from her erotic novels but everything he has imagined in his own fantasies. 

Can he and the woman of his dreams escape her waking nightmare? 

*Adult Content: This erotic romantic suspense includes scenes of bondage between consenting adults.*

Meet Scarlet Hawthorne

Scarlet Hawthorne began writing short stories at the age of eight, poems at ten, and wrote her first novella – a romantic tragedy – at twelve. Today she enjoys creating characters who discover integrity and their authentic selves through their sexuality. She has been a speaker at national conferences discussing how power exchange can enhance relationships and refuting the negative stereotypes of BDSM promulgation in the media. 
An award-winning and bestselling author in a variety of genres under other pen names, Scarlet was a featured author at the 2014 BDSM Writers Conference in New York City and contributed an excerpt from her upcoming romantic suspense Retrograde to the first BDSM Writers Con Anthology. Always eager to challenge herself as a writer, Scarlet utilized a “panoramic point of view” narrative style, rarely found in fiction today, in her latest novel Deadline.  

Scarlet lives with her two dogs and their Master in a lakeside community in the New Orleans area. Her next release is the contemporary 
male/male romance Between the Notes, expected in spring, 2015.
