Inspirational quotes on Wisdom

Patience is the companion of wisdom.
Saint Augustine

A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.
Francis Bacon

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day; wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.
Elbert Hubbard

We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.
George Bernard Shaw

What Karaoke song are you!

Your Karaoke Theme Song is “Since U Been Gone”

You are a very expressive and genuine person.
You’re not so emotional that you wear your heart on your sleeve – but you’re not afraid to show how you’re truly feeling.

Whether you’re singing along in the car or singing on stage, your favorite songs make you get a little carried away.
You’re definitely the type most likely to dream of becoming a rock star!

You might also sing: “Livin’ La Vida Loca,” “I Will Survive,” or “Hollaback Girl”

Stay away from people who sing: “I’ll Make Love to You”

Writing Tip for August 25, 2008

Today’s tip is as much for myself as anyone else. I seem to have slacked off in my writing. Slacked off is actually putting it mildly. I haven’t written anything in months. Not a poem, a chapter, a page, nothing, nada! Why? Put it down to pure procrastination. I have gotten caught up in the world of online gaming at pogo.com. Yes, I am addicted to scrabble online. I started out by saying that it was justified because I was exercising my mind and building my vocabulary. Now I realize I have used it as another excuse to put off trying to finish my novel.

Why? Oh, well its that old bugger-bear, fear of failure. If I don’t finish it, I can’t submit it, and can’t get rejected.

So, what am I going to do? I am officially grounding myself from pogo! Or at least limiting myself to one game of scrabble a day! lol!

Ransom Love by Rita Karnopp

Heat rating: 3 flames
1868 Indian Historical/Romance


Montana Territory–1868. After spending four years as a captive of the
Blackfeet, Jennie Proctor must decide whether to trust the handsome
white man who has come to rescue her, or spend the rest of her life a

Cody Larimer has one goal in life: to rescue captive women from
Indians. When he finds the beautiful and haunted Jennie Proctor, the
last thing he expects is for her to tell him to leave her with the

However, Jennie’s situation soon changes, and she and Cody must
struggle together if they wish to survive. Feelings of anger and
mistrust soon develop into mutual respect and love, leaving both of
them with something neither believed possible.


A’hwa Waki noticed the women were settling down on the grass just
beyond the cluster of cottonwoods, facing the ancient ceremonial site.
Laughs Behind Hand stood chatting with her mother, pointing in A’hwa
Waki’s direction.

Could they have noticed the white man in the tree? She felt her muscles tense.

A group of warriors, their faces painted black with red lightning
streaks, beat rhythmically on drums, chanting. Many women sang in
shrill harmonizing voices. The atmosphere was one of
anticipation…not fear.

No, A’hwa Waki finally decided, if the women had noticed the white
man, things would be in an uproar by now.

“Kai yiwahts, A’hwa Waki?” Mahkwoyi called out to her.

She glanced toward the warrior and found him watching her. His
expression asked what troubled her. If only he knew, she thought,
leaning against the cottonwood. If only he knew a white man sat above
her, wanting to take her away. A’hwa Waki smiled in an attempt to
appear relaxed. The handsome warrior standing within the white-painted
rock circle had become her confidante, her friend, her…soon-to-be
husband. Instincts warned her not to reveal the white man’s presence,
yet a nagging feeling of betrayal existed.

Wilderness by Sally Odgers

Experimental Womens Fiction


Wilderness is where you find it. Miriam Moses fights her own private
wilderness by running for her life. Along the way, she encounters many
characters, all engaged in their own pains and problems. Death, blood,
tears and betrayal are rife, but even the darkest life is lit by hope.
From each encounter, Miriam takes what she needs and discards the
rest, but no one who meets her will ever be the same again. Especially
Harry Mercury. Wilderness is where you find it. Life is what you make
it. And Miriam Moses is running for her life.

Miriam Moses ran. She walked and ran right through the night, pausing
often to rest. As the dawn came, she was a long way from anywhere,
which isn’t difficult on the wild west coast. She sat down to rest,
chewing a strip of fruit leather. The bush was thick to the coastal
side, and on the inland side the gullies swooped away. Miriam watched
the daylight grow, and felt very tired. She wasn’t pacing herself
properly. Much more of this and she’d run herself to death before she
finished running for her life. And–she was still in Tasmania.

She watched the wilderness of trees, the steepness and the primitive
shape of the hills. The west coast–a bitter place in winter, but in
summer–it was not so bad. She was wearing a coat, but she’d take it
off when the sun came high. There was a boy by the side of the road.

Miriam blinked. He was wearing underpants and a PFD. His face was
dripping blood and his legs were… “What happened to you?” she asked.

Erotic Ghost/Paranormal


Discover the delights of hard spirits.

Kelsie doesn’t believe in ghosts. So why is she camped out at her
elderly aunt Maud’s house to take part in an exorcism?

Maud hasn’t let a man in the house for forty years, which leaves
Kelsie at a loss to explain the smell of hot male and the most erotic
dreams of her life that overtake her the instant she arrives.

After one particularly tasty midnight encounter, Kelsie awakes to a
vision that is not hard to swallow at all: three gorgeous, naked and
very eager hunks standing at the end of her bed.

The good news is, they want to fulfill her every erotic fantasy. The
weird news is they’re ghosts!

Now it’s up to Kelsie to thwart the exorcist and secure a lifetime’s
supply of hard spirits.

The three men certainly were tapped in to her fantasies. Adam lounged
against the wall, all black leather and bad boy attitude. Benedict’s
long lean legs were covered in faded denim, complete with scuffed
cowboy boots and a faded stress patch to draw attention to his
magnificent package. Chad’s blond good looks morphed into divine
beauty when set against the severity of the formal black and white of
his tuxedo.

Kelsie looked and evaluated. “You know, I’ve got to say, I never
realized just how much my fantasies had embraced the whole romantic
cliché. Still, I suppose it’s because those images are so attractive
that they become clichés in the first place. I think the only thing
I’m missing here is the kilt clad Highland warrior.”

Adam’s leathers began to go blurry and look a little wooly. “I can change.”

Rise of the Wolf by Kat Duarte
Isbn: 978-1-897559-29-1
Heat rating: 3 flames


City girl Hilary Samuels has no idea Murphy’s Law will kick into high
gear the first night of the Hunters’ Moon. One country road, a flat
tire and a skid into a cornfield later, and Hilary finds herself
face-to-fang with a seductive vampire. Add to that one super-sized
wolf who challenges her attacker and you’ve got one weird night out.

Anyone else would retreat to the more conventional hazards of urban
life, but Hilary moved to McKenna with an agenda. If she can
successfully run the small town’s Café Lotti, her promotion to
managing one of the hippest cafes in Chicago is in the bag.

But how to build a customer base when stalked by the undead? Not to
mention the hunky head of the company turning out to have some steamy
supernatural secrets of his own! Will Hilary join forces with her new
and powerful ally, or will their entanglement rip her world apart?

But why should you wait? Your skin in the moonlight looks as soft and
radiant as a pearl. Do you not yearn to be caressed?

She would have sworn his lips didn’t move. His voice was so gentle,
warm, sensuous and intimate, as though he were inside her thoughts,
her soul.

Then somehow, without moving, he had covered the space between them
and stood next to her, pressed against her, leaning over her. His soft
hair tickled her cheek. His breath whispered across her lips as he
parted them with a flick of his hot tongue. The kiss was light, soft,
then firmer and deeper, the deft movement filling her with the promise
of such delights to come that her knees actually began to give way. He
caught her, one of his arms bracing her at the deepest curve of her
back, the other wrapped so that he cradled her neck in the palm of his

Love Unexpected by Gwynn Morgan

Heat rating: 1 flame


When airline hostess Kate befriends a lonely child, she little dreams
of the reward that will come her way. She soon learns that a good deed
can bring unexpected surprises in the form of a love she never dared
hope to find.

Janelle is determined to rescue her infant neice from the child’s
abusive father when her sister dies under doubious circumstances. A
potential tragedy with a broken down car in a remote area brings an
unexepcted result when she is rescued by a cowboy with a car seat!

Glimpsing blurred motion out of the corners of her eyes, she glanced
up to see a pickup, several years old and a bit the worse for wear.
Mud encrusted the bed and rusty spots marred the once bright metallic
green paint.

“What’s the problem, Ma’am? Need some help?”

With the mid-afternoon sun in her eyes and reflecting off the glass
and chrome of both vehicles, she couldn’t see much about the driver
except he wore a broad brimmed hat and a bright striped shirt.

“I’m not sure,” she admitted. “My car just suddenly stopped. I mean,
the engine runs and all but it won’t move.”

“Let me take a look,” the man said. He pulled up in front of her car,
parked the pickup, and got out.

Wow, Jan thought. He’s tall. He was also broad shouldered, and moved
with an easy loose-hipped gait. He stopped to glance under the raised
hood, gave a twitch or two to some of the wires and asked her to start
it again. The results were still the same. He pushed his hat back and
scratched his head for a moment. Then he gave her a crooked grin.

Psychic Passions by Ally Robertson

Paranormal Erotic Romance


Caprice Hutchins and Cassidy Cornwall are both empaths and artists
struggling to survive with their own distinct mental illnesses.
Together they will fight for their lives and sanity to find and keep
each other’s souls. They will be reborn through death and time to
achieve a deep psychic connection, filled with desire, passion,
obsession and unconditional love.


Feeling Caprice in distress made him want to comfort her, but when she
snapped at him and lashed out with her frustration, he couldn’t bear
her suffering anymore. He’d taken her out to the park that day to tell
her all the reasons why she wouldn’t want him. To his surprise, he
couldn’t resist her need any longer. His own need had driven him to
kiss her. Feeling the way she responded to him had hit him like a
train wreck. He’d have made love to her right there if it hadn’t been
for Odessa’s interruption.

Afterwards, when he’d held Caprice as she sobbed in his arms, he’d
felt her true feelings come flooding to the surface. He knew then he
couldn’t deny her anymore. He hated that she hurt. He wanted to keep
her safe. But he was also terrified at the prospect that he could fall
in love with her. He’d felt so conflicted. Finally, Cassidy realized
that it didn’t matter anymore. Why was he denying himself love when
that’s all he’d desired to truly have for so long.

Erotica, BDSM, 2 Book Anthology


What do you get when you cross a sexy, strong-willed redhead, a
devilish bartender and a tab that needs to be paid? How about a
beautiful but naughty minx who finds out just how much fun punishment
can really be?

These are two sizzling tales you will not want to miss!


Bar Tab:

It took a bit of struggling, but I managed to stand up and hop turn
myself around to face him.

He looked up with a bit of surprise on his face, and then with a smile
he grabbed my arms. “So, still got some struggle in you, eh?”

I looked up at him with a mixture of defiance and fear, and then I
felt the mischievous brat in me rear up. I swayed back and forth and
struggled to break his grip on my arms.

He laughed, keeping me easily in his strong grip. He turned the chair
around, pulled me down onto my knees, and then forced my head onto the
seat of the chair. He moved my hair and strapped my neck down to the
seat of the chair with another belt.

Well, I’m not getting up from this position, I thought to myself.

My Lord Says:

“Do you understand the rules, slave?”

I shiver at the warmth of His breath moving across my ear and neck and
quickly mutter, “Yes, My Lord.”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t quite hear that.” He stands back up and the
leather handle of the leash lands with a sting across my right

I yelp in surprised pain. “Yes, My Lord, I understand the rules!”

“Wonderful. Then let’s begin, shall we?” He moves back to the couch
and sits down in front of me. He leans close to me and presents the
leash handle in front of my lips. I open my mouth and feel the handle
as it slides into my open cavity. I close my lips and wait for the
game to begin.
