Ashton

Prologue “Ten minutes to show time.” Ashton Steel, lead dancer and co-founder of Men of Steel, Ladies Ultimate Night Out, slapped Tucker Jones, the newest member of the group on the back. “You ready to shake your dick and make it rain?” Tucker, a twenty-three year old ex-college football hero flashed a perfectly white smile and peered through the red velvet curtain. “Hells yeah I am. Thirsty Thursday never looked so good.” He pointed out to the crowd. “Have you found her yet?” Ashton came up behind him, scanned the crowd full of women dressed in short shorts and cleavage filled tank tops. It didn’t take him long to find her. “There,” he said, pointing to the girl front and center. Even sitting down, she didn’t look to be more than five foot five, maybe a hundred and ten pounds and a head full of hair that put Carrot Top…

Jac (Excerpt: Chapter 2)

“Guess you didn’t see your night ending up this way,” Jaclyn grinned, finishing off her drink. He was quiet for a moment. The wind made hushed noises in the background, blowing fallen leaves against the hallway window. “It’s not all bad,” Lee responded at last. With a twinkle in his eye, he added, “I met someone. A woman, that is.” “Oh yeah?” Jaclyn could hear her own voice crack with hopelessness as she asked the question. Though she had already figured that he was most likely already taken. A man that handsome and sweet had to be. She knew there had to be a hitch. With a soft tone, she questioned, “What’s she like?” “She’s beautiful,” he began. Jaclyn slumped in disappointment as he went on, “Really nice, too. She seems smart, can hold a conversation. She’s extremely caring and I doubt I have a chance but,” he shrugged in…

When It’s Done Right, All Night Is Not Enough…..

It’s 7am and I’m still wide awake, and that’s not the only thing that’s wider today than it was yesterday. At 38, divorced 5 years ago, I threw myself into my job. I moved six months ago from the west coast to the east coast for a totally new outlook on life. That out look didn’t remotely include Ted or any man, especially one that’s 60 years old. I’ve always been in control, with 300 employees reporting to me, pulling in a high six figure salary with a corner office, a penthouse that most would love to have and a masters degree from the best business school in the country. All that I would give up to relive the last 8 hours with Ted, well at least half anyway. I did things last night I didn’t know I could or would ever do. But how could a 60 year old…

The Duke’s Facade (An excerpt)

Standing idly against the wall of the Moltram’s ballroom, Jacob felt like a caged tiger. He did not want to be spending his night pretending not to notice the crush of the room and doing his best to overlook the uncomfortable feeling of being crumpled by the sheer number of people in the place. One did not show how uncomfortable one was at a public event, it just wasn’t gentile. He also did not want to spend the night pretending that he did not notice the gaggles of Mamas on the Marriage Mart primping their daughters and then ever so subtly pushing them in his direction. So standing there with what he hoped was his usual uninviting look of indifference, Jacob saw that his brother, Julian, Viscount Montrose, and Lord Robert Farthing were approaching. “What in the world are you doing here, Granby?” Robert asked in disbelief. “Didn’t you tell…

Always Remember Me

It felt as if my heart was ripped out of my chest. It was official; the doctors confirmed what I dreaded the most. You were dead. The doctor sadly told your mother the devastating truth. She raised her hand to her mouth and tears started to swell up into her eyes. I comforted her as she fell apart in her grief. Her child was gone. He passed away four in the morning where his heart gave up. I shared her grief because I loved you so much that it hurt to know that you were gone. Gone forever. Your funeral was a small private matter. It was a rainy June day when we buried in the Irving Park Cemetery where your grandfather lay. Dressed in black, everyone you knew and loved you came to say goodbye. I stood beside your mother, and held her hand as she softly sobbed into…
