Excerpts:


~~~R rated~~~

Naomi cut him off, kissing the question from his lips.

He moaned and slid his hands down her back, cupping her ass to pull her closer. If she'd been uncertain of what he was going to ask, she would surely get the hint with it pressed snugly against her stomach and getting harder by the second. One moment her hands were on his chest, the next, his pants fell in a heap around his bare feet. Her hand cupped the bulge barely contained in his gray boxer briefs.

“Are you sure? Nay, we can't go back after this.” His forehead fell against hers as they both took a moment to breathe.

In a wordless answer, she freed her ponytail, sending her brown hair cascading down her back, and tugged her pink blouse over her head. Her skirt slid down next.



Author
Bio

Hi! I'm an author from
the Midwestern United States. I'm an avid reader of anything romance! I've worked
as a travel agent, nursing assistant, and a paralegal before chasing my dream
of full-time writing. I love to travel, swim, cook, and I'm more than a little
addicted to a certain social media website...

Currently, I write
paranormal and science-fiction romance. My plan is to branch out in several
romance sub-genres, but my books will always end in the infamous Happily Ever
After.

Always hot, always sexy,
my male characters will protect their women at all costs, and my female
characters will be...I like to call it "feisty." I believe every
story and character should be unique, and it's something I always strive to do.

Reading should be an
escape from everyday life, so I hope you enjoy my version of a vacation for
you!

Fun
Facts about me

1. I love birds! I have
one (a parakeet).
2. I'm double-jointed,
which led to teasing as a kid (which I also found funny)!
3. I have a shoe
addiction! Mainly embellished flip-flops, but other kinds too (not heals, I'd
break my ankles).
4. I missed a college 4.0
GPA in the very last semester when one professor gave me a B (still upset about
that!)!
5. I am very OCD about
certain things (see #6).
6. I have an extensive
DVD/BluRay collection and it has to be kept in alphabetical order!
7. My favorite vacations
involve a cruise. I've been on 15 so far!
8. I'm quiet and sort of
shy until I get to know a person.
9. I'm quick witted and
believe sarcasm is my best friend.
10. I hate hot weather.

Heart of Stone

 An S.I.Hayes Novel

 

Well isn't she just a wanton sex kitten?

Donnella Stone, what can I say bout this firecracker of a woman? She's 33, a whopping 5'2 just over a hundred and fifteen pounds and filthy rich. Heavy on the filthy part. Born to privilege, but raised to understand people and read them for their desires, she spent her formative years in private schools and The Stone Tower. A spiraling complex of brick and concrete her father built in Manhattan to give them a panoramic view of the city and all it's beauty.

She was always a smart girl, some would even go as far as to call her brilliant, but she had a way of building herself a reputation.  Her looks and overt awareness of her sexuality causing her trouble as she matured, labeling her as a bit of a tease for although she would "play" she would not go all the way. It got her labeled. It got her teased. But her mother was always there to wipe away the tears, until she wasn't.

Heartbroken her father left, giving the Stone Company to his only child. Alone Donnell'a heart hardened, and she came to the singular conclusion that sex and love didn't have to go hand and hand. That she could enjoy herself and the men that sprawled across her bed so long as she did it her way. On her terms... It's worked for a decade, but now she has met Matthew G. Mayfield and her world has been turned upside down.

#AuthorRT #Booktrope @shannonihayes This tipsy turvey world... or What I've been up too the last few months!

New and exciting venues on the horizon.



        It's been a while since I've written anything here. And as usual I'm writing well after supper time. It's my time to really just chill out and do nothing. I've been a busy beaver, writing and doing cover work for some authors. I even did a re-write for a guy where English really was not his first language. It was  trying but when I was done it was a satisfaction I haven't had in a while. I've expanded the Fresh Eyes Edit to include Createspace and Kindle Formatting. That's been interesting...

A break in the Silence #AmWriting #BiPolar #NoSleep #CrazyTrain @shannonihayes

Wisdom, Happiness Harmony

       These are the words that have sat before me for the past month or so. Little Dollar store framed caricatures  and a photo of a lost beloved pet. That there is my Grifialchial (Griffin or Mow, Mow for short). He died back in 2004 but I still miss him quite a lot. He was a beautiful and affectionate boy. Followed me around all through the house. 

I'm sitting here at 3 am with a shit tone of things running through my head, chowing down on a brownie washing it down with a bottle of water. Not sure exactly where I'm going with this post. Maybe it's the coffee keeping me up. Maybe it's the Mania, I'm not entirely sure, either way I'm writing something. Listening to my Pandora station, the songs are all poignant tonight. Songs like Cold (but I'm still here) from Evans Blue and Beautiful, from 10 Years, are hitting nerves...
