Unedited. Subject to change. Release date is not yet determined. Enjoy :) [video poster="http://beingmrsjones.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/defaultfeatured.jpg" width="600" height="400" mp4="http://beingmrsjones.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Vid_20181202_082428.mp4" loop="true" autoplay="true" preload="auto"][/video] Once Harriet was gone, I went the opposite direction, toward the floor. I needed time to set up the private booth where I’d service Ruby, but I took a moment to check my appearance in the mirror first, to make sure it was just so. Black shoes, black pants, black logo top, hot pink lip, no jewelry. That was our “uniform” here, and deviation would earn you a demerit at best, and at worst, fired on the spot. We could do whatever we wanted...

This winter. [video poster="http://beingmrsjones.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/defaultfeatured.jpg" width="1440" height="960" mp4="http://beingmrsjones.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Vid_20181125_194815.mp4" loop="true" autoplay="true" preload="auto"][/video] It all came down to me. The one who followed the rules, never went looking for trouble – I kept to myself. I just wanted to take care of my family. To not constantly look over my shoulder, worried about the things that went bump in the night. I just wanted to survive. But that wasn’t meant to be. As luck – or fate, or something – would have it, the trouble found me. I followed a rabbit through the wreckage of a half-ruined world to get back what was mine, and wound up at the end...

“How do I know this isn’t laced with something,” I asked, working my way up from the couch as she went into my kitchen. “You could be trying to kill me.” “If I wanted to kill you, I would not waste good food to do it. Not when I know so many better ways.” “Is that supposed to be comforting?” “I wasn’t really going for comfort. I was just speaking the truth.” She moved to the sink to wash her hands, stopping when she noticed the burned-out pan in the sink. “You tried to cook something?” “Tried, yeah.” She laughed. “Mmmhmm. Have a seat.” I took...

This is exciting, right? I mean, it is to me - the first "Sample Sunday" in almost two months, which is a bit of an anomaly. That's no complaint - absence makes the heart grow fonder or something. In any case, I'm excited to start sharing snippets and visuals (shout out to Porsha at brwnstock) for this project, which I hope you enjoy reading as much as I'm enjoying writing. Ben and Kyle (the heroine) have a great enemies-to-lovers dynamic, even though it's not typically a "trope" that I enjoy. (And yet, I somehow end up writing it often. Go figure.)   This snippet is unedited,...

Unedited. Subject to change. Last sample before release! As I approached my house, I frowned at the flashy black Mercedes G-class parked in my driveway. It wasn’t Nate’s car – he knew I meant it when I said it was time to go – but it still made my jaw tight to see it. As soon as I hit the door, I went searching for the owner and found him in my kitchen, in my refrigerator, like he owned the place. “Garrett,” I snapped, and he looked up, with a mouthful of the strawberries I’d intended to go with my breakfast this...

As usual - unedited, and subject to change. Release date is August 17th. Enjoy :) “Okay I must have the wrong office – can you point me to the one you use for your actual job? Thanks.” I grinned as my sister – my twin – Nicole didn’t even bother looking up from what she was doing to flip me off.  Taking a seat in front of her desk, I watched as she referred to some list she had, comparing it against what appeared to be a page full of numbered circles, with lines extending from each one. “Shouldn’t your fancy wedding planner...
