Happy Saturday, snippeteers! August has been a busy month. Not only did I finish Swings & Roundabouts and send it off for edits, but Undercover Star, which was supposed to be a short novella, just blew past 25k.

Have a lovely weekend!

“That’s a shame.”
Josh Ingram’s throaty rumble was as sexy as his arse. He was half a head taller than Matisse and a good bit wider. Older, too, and he loomed in an enticing way. Matisse wanted to be—
