EXCERPT:

“I’m home, Major.”

Of course, the cat didn’t rush to greet her like a dog would. Most likely, he was curled up somewhere and would glare at her when she found him. He tolerated Jenny, the neighbor who made sure he had food and water and a clean box. Ronnie would need to be punished for leaving him yet again. Why didn’t the cat adjust? She traveled almost as often as she was home.

At the end of the hallway, she toed open the door to her bedroom. A bump from her balled fist turned the switch, and light from the two floor lamps illumined the room. In the center of her bed, the striped cat lay, feet curled under his chest, amber eyes glaring at her.

“Hey, buddy. Did you miss me?”

She plopped the bag onto her bed, earning a long blink from the cat. In the silence, the zipper squawked like a pack of hungry crows. She heaped clothes for the washing machine into a pile at the foot of the bed, chatting at the cat. By the time she finished unpacking, he had turned his back to her and was faking sleep. Or maybe he really could drop off with the mattress bouncing from her movements.

Her phone trilled.

Michael. Her heart leapt against her breastbone. No matter how her back screamed for a stretch, or her butt felt numb from the long flight, her lips curled upward. She rolled the suitcase into her deep closet and kicked her shoes off before picking up her phone and heading toward the living area. A quick glance at the screen revealed his message: Make it home OK?

It's Summer Time Giveaway

Many of you are aware of my mother's passing in October of 2016 and some of the other things that have been keeping my writing progress slowed, but I am working hard on catching up with those writing projects that came to a screeching halt at the end of last year.

Book three in my Bad Boy Fever series is well underway. I will be pushing to have Bound by the Bad Boy completed and released this year. Book two in my Lost Boys series, Kiss of Fire and Frost is also well underway and another of my books I will be pushing to complete.

Because I really do appreciate my readers and fans, and I'm thankful for your patience with me, I am doing an It's Summer Time Giveaway. What's on the summer giveaway list?

On A Dark Tide by Naomi Clark

Thanks for having me here today! I'm excited to share my latest Romance on the Go, ON A DARK TIDE, a story I constantly (and probably annoyingly) referred to as the Creepy Ocean Story whilst writing it. I'm a mermaid at heart. I love the ocean, whatever the season, whatever the weather. Nothing makes me feel as at peace or inspired as sitting by the shore. ON A DARK TIDE is one of several stories and books I've written with the ocean at its heart, and it won't be the last.

My jokey reference to it as the Creepy Ocean Story got me thinking about other creepy ocean stories. ON A DARK TIDE was partially inspired by that idea that the deep, vast ocean is concealing a very alien and inhospitable world from us - and that maybe we don't want to uncover it's secrets.

These three books share that theme, and were all incredibly formative reads for me growing up. Enjoy!
