The Special People working on the book to make it perfect:
Tabitha Ormiston-Smith, you know how to make a girl work.
We’ve done it again, another book completed!! Whooohoo!! You are the best editor I’ve encountered. You were less evil during the editing this time, which means I’m learning! I know I can say that to you. I always say to myself, Tabitha and I are in a love/hate relationship. I know when you are angry when I see caps in comments on edits. I also know when something made you giggle as well. I appreciate you teaching me to be better at writing, and keeping my feet to the fire. I love working with you and look forward to more books together!
Patti Roberts, you are full of talent! I look forward to doing covers with you. The way you bring life to my vision on a cover is amazing.
SHOWKEN’s cover is HOT!!!I’m like a kid in a candy store when I know we are working on covers. You’re always so patient with me, very accommodating, and kind
I always say you’re heaven sent, and I mean that. I can’t wait to work with you, it’s such a joy to spend time working on covers with you, even when I ask for changes after I’ve said ‘I love it’, you change it without complaint, and for that I thank you deep down.
I LOVE YOU ALL!! I truly enjoy how you are all so truthful with me about my books. I won’t give names, because I like to keep my beta readers to myself! You all know who you are, my first readers. I always look forward to your feedback. You are all awesome!
I’m not ashamed and will always thank my heavenly father Jesus Christ. I would not even be here without Him. I have to thank my wonderful husband. I’m so blessed to share my life with you. I love that you are so accepting of my madness, when writing, editing, promoting, and the crazy schedule I have, still you never complain.
To my precious daughter, Mommy loves our time together. I love that smile and how we can talk about anything. You will always be my baby. Thank you Mom and Dad, for supporting me with all the wisdom you give me. I love you both, and consider it a blessing to have you as parents. I love all my sisters and love each one of you for being there for me no matter what. Shatina, my manager, I love you so much; you always make sure I stay focused, reminding me of all the important things, and pushing out the negative. Thank you. To my nephew/son, I love talking with you. You are so wise at such a young age, your advice is appreciated. To Nikki, you are the best P.A. and I’m not ever letting you go. To my friend who is awesome, I love reading books with you and discussing our fictional boyfriends, you know who you are, SWH!!! LOL. To the best book club ever, I love all of you and enjoy our meetings, with such great food and wine! If I have missed anyone please don’t charge it to my heart. I love all my family and friends!

I thought I had more time,
ut then, I laid eyes on you,
nd thought, she sure is fine
Even made up in my mind how to make you mine!
Yet, you wouldn't even let me take you out to dine.
I was persistent though, I knew you just needed time.
I even crossed the line and almost lost you,
or not using my mind,
Yet, here we are together
Why the hell did Draken choose me to run the business? Damn. If I’m running it, then human women are allowed in the car, house, and definitely the office. I’m happy Layern and Hawken are coming along. Gemi decides to stay, but Domlen decided he would come, also.
“Okay, I’m in charge now and I say there are no rules, except don’t expose us or I will be fucking pissed,” I say. Layern ignores me. Hawken and Domlen just look.
“You’re not running shit,” Hawken says.
“I run everything,” I say, “and unlike Draken, I will burn your ass, and that will take months to heal. Now, who’s up for a drink at a bar I’ve been dying to go to?”
“I’m up for it. What’s the name of the bar?” Domlen says, not looking up from his laptop.
“Hot Chicks and Drinks,” Layern says, looking serious. I have to make sure Layern gets laid. Domlen and Hawken and I have nothing to worry about.
“Well lets go see what’s in the Hot Chicks and Drinks Bar. I think this might be my lucky day.”
I go to my room to get ready. I love human women, and plan on bringing at least two home tonight. I just don’t like when they get all “Showken, you going to call,” or “Showken, I think I love you,” to hell with that. I don’t want that shit. I just want a good lay, and to keep it moving. I may settle down in about, oh, another hundred years, but right now I’m having fun. I walk back, Domlen and Layern are ready. Hawken
hasn’t bothered to change.
“Okay, no hurting the human women.
If they say no, respect it and move on. Don’t start any fights, as we have to go to work on Monday. Please, don’t fall in love like Draken, he went crazy. Now he is hooked on Cess. I don’t have time for a repeat.” I grab the keys to the Hummer.
“Showken, stop giving out orders, you sound like Draken. He always wants to give out orders,” Hawken says. We all laugh.
“Yeah, but now Cess is giving the orders,” Domlen says. Layern shakes his head.
“Let’s just go have some fun. Look, we’re already here,” Hawken says.
We all walk into the bar, and it’s pretty packed, but it’s Friday. I’m casing the place, and see her behind the bar placing drinks on a tray. She has dark brown hair, hanging straight. Her body has all the right curves. Yes, she is going to be one of them tonight. She looks mad, but I’ll just smile. She will melt and the panties will be off.
“I’m going to get a waitress for us, go find a table,” I say, heading straight for her.
“Stop giving out orders!” Hawken yells out. I ignore his jealous ass and keep moving until I’m right in front of her.
“Excuse me. My brothers and I need our order to be taken,” I say, hoping she will look up. Instead, she keeps placing drinks on the tray to deliver.
“So fucking what. Wait your turn,” she says, and moves around me, walking toward another table. Shit. This one has some issues. It doesn’t matter. I still want to have her in my bed tonight. I walk to our table, and sit. She walks over with a small pad and pen.
“What can I get you boys?”
“Boys?” Domlen says, “You see any boys?”
“As a matter of fact, yes. Now what you want to drink?”
Oh, she is really angry. I like it.
“We would like some pitchers of beer, the best you have,” Layern says.
“Is that all?” she asks, not looking at any of us. I wonder what that’s all about. She can’t be shy with a mouth like that. Hmmm . . .
“Yes, I would like to know what time you’re off?” I ask, trying to get her to look at me. She finally does. There are those beautiful grey eyes. She is one angry lady, but I like her. She could be fun.
“Look, I’m not interested. I’ll be back with the beer,” she says, walking away. I watch her sexy walk, back to the bar counter to get our orders. She is a woman. Her ass, breasts, and hips are perfect.
