My Thoughts

Loving Liberty is Belinda Boring’s New Adult Contemporary novel. Liberty Montgomery’s life is not her own. Everything has been planned out for her that is until Oliver Nichols enters her life, he turns it completely upside down. He is everything she is needs.  Can Liberty find her inner strength to break free and make her life her own?  Hooked from page one I could feel the raw emotions of the characters in every word the author wrote.    Even though it is a different genre, it still encompasses those toe curling, weak in the knees kisses that Belinda is well-known for.  Dealing with a tough subject matter that we may or may not have dealt with in life, she is able to make us feel both the painful and blissful emotions for the characters while rooting for the good guys to triumph for the bad guys.

The Book Blurb

James White has it all, looks, brains, and a charming personality. But in his romance cover model’s world, those blessings have become a curse. A colleague has blurred the line between life in front of the camera and reality; distorting the truth, and turning a friendship into a dangerous obsession.

Hope Evans had a dream job, working with sexy, hot photographs; turning authors’ dreams into award-winning covers. When unexpectedly laid off, she must find her namesake in life … some kind of hope for her future. Can a birthday wish give her what she truly desires? They say be careful what you wish for.

Destiny brings Jamie and Hope what they’ve been seeking: each other. Fate also throws in a psychopath and her equally sinister sister, both hell-bent on making Jamie’s world a living hell.

A hero on thousands of romance covers; Can he be one for real, when lives are on the line?

An Exclusive Excerpt 

Midnight in LA was like rush hour in LA. It took them twice as long to get back to his place as it should have due to a couple of accidents off to the side of the road. Brake lights and headlights lit up the freeway like a lava flow. Hope had fallen asleep soon after Jamie put her in the car. He replayed everything that had happened since his photo shoot went bust with Brittany and his ire reignited. He didn’t know what he’d do if she tried to contact him again. She’s good, the psychotic bitch, always making it seem as though I’m the bad guy on the phone and she’s only trying to make things right again. At last, he pulled up the driveway and into the garage. He turned off the car and closed the garage door. Time to forget about her and concentrate on the extraordinary woman next to you, bud.
“Hope, babe, we’re here.” He leaned over and kissed her lightly on her cheek. She stirred, turned toward him, and smiled drowsily.
“Oh, good, ‘cause I’m in desperate need of a comfy bed and you, mister. What are the chances of me getting those at this time of night?”
He put his forehead against hers and whispered, “I think your chances are pretty damned good. In fact, I’d say it is a sure bet. Place your chips, baby.”
Her throaty laugh sent waves of heat through his body straight to all points south. The nighttime air had caused her voice to deepen and rasp, and sound sexy as hell. “I’ll place my chips, honey. Just show me where.”
“Right here, sweetheart, right here.” He pointed to the bulge in his pants. They burst into laughter that sent tears streaming down their cheeks.
“Oh, my God! That’s the cheesiest line ever.” She shook her head.
“I know! I can’t believe I just said that!” He turned serious and looked at her sparkling eyes for a moment, needing to touch her. He reached out a tentative hand to gently tuck away a stray lock of hair behind her ear. “Let’s get out of here and into that comfy bed you requested.”
“Yes, let’s.” Her eyes spoke the rest of her desires.
He brought her straight to his bedroom on the second floor, a master suite, complete with loveseat and sofa by a fireplace at the far end. She marveled at the moonlight casting a soft glow through the amber stained glass windows, illuminating a king-sized bed loaded with pillows of all shapes and sizes. He pushed them aside and lowered her gently to the bed, joining her just as she’d been anticipating since before dinner. They stayed locked in a desperate embrace for a while, before he released her.  He rose above her like a canopy, his powerful arms and legs forming posts on either side of her. She couldn’t resist, wouldn’t resist the urge to release his hair from its bindings, and raked her fingers through to release their waves. His eyes, golden with desire, seemed to search for refuge in hers.
“I could lose myself in your eyes.”
 She parted her lips but found no words to adequately respond. She batted her lashes and turned away, embarrassed and thrilled at the same time. He moved his head and captured her gaze once again. “No, don’t look away. Look at me. Let me find lost in you.” He’d spoken so softly, so openly and raw. She smiled gently at his play on words, loving the intimacy, the perfection, of the moment.
 She raised herself up to but a hair’s breadth away from his face. “Kiss me, Jamie, and we’ll find lost together.”

Color Blind Blurb
Blinded and scarred in a freak accident a year ago, Teresa has finally found love and a new career with the help of her companion dog, Red. Red appears to be a typical German shepherd, but he shares a mental communication link with his owner that is anything but ordinary. He’s articulate, sassy and opinionated - he’s also scary-smart, and has a talent for tracking.

Teresa and Red, have partnered with ex-Navy men, David, and Bastian, to form Team Red. This unique Team helps the local police department sift through evidence to find forensic clues that only Red's sensitive nose, and Teresa's ability to ask the right questions can uncover. A twist of fate brings Team Red to the attention of the Military, and the Team gets ready for their first undercover mission (we can only divulge at this point that Red looks adorable in his tux).

WARNING: This book is a LOL paranormal extra spicy romance. Story contains a blind woman with a sassy attitude, a snarky German shepherd who stalks cats, a man-cave with secret tunnels and classified military toys, two sexy retired Navy men with a talent for tactical planning, a black and white formal ball, Marilyn Monroe, and a herd of Mustangs (okay, herd may be a slight exaggeration). This book is INTENDED FOR MATURE ADULTS OVER 18.  Sexual situations and adult language were used (and abused) in the making of this novel.

     My face was cupped in two large hands and drawn upward to meet his lips in a warm, ravenous, sucking kiss that melted me into boneless mush. “I love you,” he said brushing another softer kiss over my mouth. He was gone before I could function enough to form a response. I was left standing in the dining room, with my lips half-parted and tingling. The taste of David and lust flavoring my mouth. Wow, the man had mad oral skills.
     "Earth to Teresa,” Red said as he brushed a shoulder against my leg. “Geez, the goofy look on your face is embarrassing. Snap out of it already, where’s your pride woman!”


     “Gil, do dogs see better than humans?” I asked.
     “I’ll have to give you one of my no, but yes, answers,” He chuckled. “First off, I’m sure you already know that dogs are color blind.”
     “They see in black and white?” Lt. Osborn asked.
     “No,” Gil corrected. “Dogs are color blind, like people are color blind. They can’t see in shades of red or green. Most of what they see is in muted shades of yellow and blue. If you were to look up color blind on the internet, you’d see dogs have a very limited color spectrum. Secondly, dogs don’t have the same visual acuity that humans have – maybe only thirty or thirty-five percent. I’d have to look it up to be sure.”
     “So, you’re saying, compared to people, dogs are near-sighted?” Bas asked.
     “Yep, pretty much. On the flip side, they have better eyesight than humans in dim light, so I would venture to say their night vision is a superior. They also detect movement better than people, so they would be faster to see something camouflaged than you or I would.”
     “I am a noble nocturnal hunter,” Red said with pride. “All the better to lay my trap for unwary cats.”

About the Author

     T. Hammond lives in Spokane, WA with her goofy, neurotic, long-coat German shepherd, Dexter; he's noble and brave, until someone turns on the microwave, then she has 100lbs of quivering dog trying to hide behind her chair or bury his head under a pillow (Little known fact: a 100lb German Shepherd CAN fit under a coffee table).
     T. writes two concurrent versions of the Team Red series for both the Adult and New Adult audiences. Blind Seduction and Color Blind are part of the Blind series - featuring adult-themed erotic romance combined with a humorous paranormal storyline. The Red series featuring Red Rover and Red Zone (release date Aug 23rd) is a funny paranormal romance series with a lighter PG13 type storyline. While both series contain the same character names and a lot of shared dialogue, the Red series is stripped of sexual content and language.
     T feels that writing is not a calling so much as it is a compulsion. No one is more surprised than she is when characters take over the plot and dialog, and (re)direct stories in directions she had not (consciously) intended. She is fully convinced that the writer is the tool a story uses to tell its tale. Some tools, of course, are more appropriate for the job than others. Here's hoping, you feel she did her stories proud.
     T. has a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Management from Whitworth University, and a Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University and before becoming a writer she was a bookkeeper, technical/manual writer, Call Center Manager and the owner of a freshwater aquarium store, Guppy Tales.

About the book:

Nothing burns as bright as the flames of the refiner’s fire.

Moments after hearing the Council sentence her enemy to life imprisonment for attempted murder and illegal use of magic, Darcy is whisked away by the Fates—accused of tampering with destiny. The cherished dream she shared with Mason has been called into question, placing doubt about whether they are actually true mates. To resolve it, a price must be paid—the Heart or Death—a grueling series of tests designed to reveal a person’s worth.

The stakes are high and Darcy finds herself facing the unknown in conditions that leave her more vulnerable than she’s ever been. Separated from Mason and her Pack, with Devlin as her only companion, she is pushed to her very limits. She must succeed—or lose everything.

Will she crumble under the pressure or emerge stronger for testing fate?

Alright folks what you are about to read next is my interview with Mason of the Mystic Wolves Pack. Grinning and yes he is as sweet and swoonworthy as he is in the books.  So swoon away.  

Q: Alright Mason, what was the first thought that flashed through your mind when you laid eyes on Darcy for the first time?

Mason: The first thing? That I was looking at my mate, and no other woman would ever compare. She was so beautiful, like a vision, and the next day when I found out she was my blind date, I knew we were destined. The Fates brought us together, and I’d be damned if I let anyone or anything tear us apart. Darcy is my whole world. I’m nothing without her.

Q:  Did you ever get jealous of Darcy and Devlin’s friendship, I mean before you found out his true identity?

Mason:  Never. That’s the thing about being in a committed relationship and trusting the one you love. You can’t fake the kind of connection Darcy and I have—the loyalty and respect. When she tells me she loves me, I believe her. I’m secure in myself and us enough not to entertain jealousy. Besides, I’ve known Devlin for a while. He’s honorable, and has done nothing but protect Darcy. His intentions are my intentions—to keep her safe and happy.

Q:  Can you give us a glimpse into future plans for you and Darcy and the pack you may be able to tell your fans?

Mason:  My future plan is enjoy married life with my beautiful mate, and keep the Pack safe from any further threats. Life as a werewolf can be unpredictable *chuckles* so here’s hoping the worst is behind us. Who knows what our lovely author has in store for us, though. I’ve been telling Belinda I’d like some swoony nights of romance, maybe a baby. Can you imagine my Darcy pregnant? Or the children we could have together? *grins* A little girl just like her Momma. Yeah, my future plans involve living happily ever after … as soon as Darcy processes the huge bomb-shell Devlin dropped on her.

Q:  What emotions and thoughts surfaced when you saw who your companion was for your trials?

Mason: It was indescribable. Of course, I can’t talk too much about it. It’s still kind of raw seeing them and I’d hate to spoil it for those who haven’t read Testing Fate. All I can say is it was needed, and the time together healed my heart.

Q:  Are you mad at the fates for intervening and subjecting you and Darcy to these trials?

Mason:  Of course, wouldn’t you be? Not so much subjecting me to their trials, but the woman I love. Going in blind and not being there to protect her, drove me insane. It went against ever instinct I hold as a man, wolf, and Alpha. Add the fact it wasn’t even our fault there was an issue . . . yeah, mad is an understatement. But what could I do? I believe when a problem surfaces, you have three choices: argue, hide, or face it head on. I was proud of Darcy’s courage in facing the unknown. It showed me exactly what kind of character she has, and why I always believed she was the one for me. Even though it was a risk, faith told me we’d get through it. Anger wouldn’t resolve it, only action. It’s a philosophy I apply to being an Alpha.

Thanks for having me on your site today, Diana *grins, shaking the hand you offer* You’ll have to stop by Woodside Hollow sometime. Maybe come the next time we have a BBQ!

Now my thoughts on Testing Fate 

Mason and Darcy must do the inevitable to ensure there mate status is upheld by the fates. Would you go above and beyond for your love even if it meant death.  Darcy holds steadfast to her beliefs through every trial and tribulation the fates put before her and she must do it by herself. So what does the future hold for this couple that is something I shall not divulge? But I promise it does not stop there. The author once again throws a cliffhanger in our direction, one that will have you saying whaaaaaaaaa. With this last cliffhanger I wonder what wild ride Belinda will be taking us on next time.
