Excerpt:

“Come on, Chelsea. Let’s get you inside.” Alex opened her car door.

She’d been so lost in her thoughts about his yard that she hadn’t even realized he’d gotten out of the car. With a sigh, she turned and let him help her out of the car. She strolled along the path to the side entrance along with Alex. The side entrance opened into his large kitchen.

She’d dreamed of kitchen like this. Dark gray granite topped the counters. What really made her envious though was the cabinet space. All those gorgeous light oak cupboards and she knew for a fact most of them were empty.

He locked the door behind them. She continued pacing forward. Alex snagged her wrist before she moved out of reach. She glanced back at him. His eyes glittered with hunger and tension.

His hand tightened. He tugged her close. She stepped willingly up to him. His arms wrapped around her, strong and secure. She leaned into him and savored the solid press of his body. With a sigh, she relaxed into the sanctuary offered in his embrace.

He held her tight against him for a moment, before he lifted her off her feet and kissed her. One of his arms slipped under her ass, holding her up as his other hand skimmed up and down her back.

Her mouth opened to the thrust of his tongue against her lips. She delighted in the touch. Her body heated. She wanted him right here.

V: Victory over fears #AtoZChallenge #MySexySaturday

One more double duty post for the month. Today I’ve got seven paragraphs from Monica’s Match. Monica has a fear of heights, and Jeremiah is helping her down a steep embankment–and helping her achieve victory over her fears.

He maneuvered sideways and down to another root, and Monica followed without missing a beat. He quickened the pace to a rock and then another root. They were almost to the river’s edge. “You’re doing great.”

“Yeah, I am.” Her laugh came out half-choked, but he admired that she held it together.

“I’m going to let you go and hop down the last bit, OK?”

She took a deep breath. “Do it.”

He did, then reached up. “Hand me your load.” He took the poles and blanket and set them by his feet. “You want me to catch you?”

She hesitated and then nodded. “On the count of three. One. Two. Three.” She shut her eyes and half leapt, half fell into his arms. She barely weighed more than a newborn calf.

He hugged her against his chest more tightly then he needed, relishing the feel of her softness. Too bad he hadn’t suggested swimsuits for this excursion. “Got you,” he whispered.


Monica has the ability to see a guy’s aura light up the first time he touches his soul mate, but she’s kept it a secret since her parents shamed her as a child. Still, she decides to start her own matchmaking company—even if she doesn’t advertise her unique ability. Business is so-so until she gets a call to find matches for the singles of the small town of Perry Grove. She’s not looking for love herself but has an immediate attraction to one of her clients. Too bad another woman lit up his aura.

Hunky dairy farmer Jeremiah wants nothing to do with his grandpa’s hare-brained matchmaking scheme but agrees to play along to appease the man who raised him. But when he meets the sexy matchmaker, he starts to rethink his single status. Too bad she’s intent on pairing him up with another woman. If there’s one thing he knows, though, it’s how to be stubborn.

Wicked ways to wake up #MySexySaturday

I’ve got a sexy snippet from my upcoming release, Monica’s Match. Monica is staying with an older couple, Ed and Bunny, while she’s visiting the small town of Perry Grove for a two-month job. In this scene, she is napping. Bunny tasks her grandson, Jeremiah, to wake Monica up for dinner. He gets a little creative in the execution.

He leaned over and gently rocked her shoulder. “Monica, wake up; it’s time for dinner.”

She moaned a bit, tried to shake off his offending hand. Not so great at waking up, it seemed. A wicked idea flitted across his mind. He knelt and brushed his lips over hers then ran his tongue along her lower lip. She stretched, her moan one of pleasure this time. He deepened the kiss, and for a few seconds she kissed him back.

10 Questions with Author Meredith Bond

Katya: What does your writing process look like?

Meredith: I’m a plotter. I work out in detail my characters and plot before I ever start writing. I then put together an outline and try to write a scene every day.

I am more of a pantser.

Katya: Do you have any strange writing habits?

Meredith: I tend to pre-write. I start out my writing every day by writing a journal entry detailing what I want the scene to be about, what is going through the point of view character’s mind, how what happens will affect them or someone else. It’s me telling myself the story and the implications of it, but it gets me into character, into the point of view character’s head and usually my writing will slowly shift from telling to showing to actually writing the scene.

Katya: What is your favorite/least favorite part of the writing process?

Meredith: My favorite part is definitely the plotting. Figuring out what my characters want and need and how they’re going to get it, and, of course, what is going to stop them from getting it.

My least favorite part—editing! Ugh! I hate grammar. I hate re-reading and re-reading and fixing. I usually go through a book two or three times before I send it to my editor and then I’ll have to go through it at least two more times after that. I get so tired of it and usually by that point I just want to move on to the next book. 🙂

Katya: Is there a subject you would never write about?

Meredith: I’m not interested in writing about wealthy, famous people who are interested in their money and fame or building money and fame. My stories are usually about misfits. People who just don’t fit in to their world and how they deal with that.

Katya: How important are names in your books? How do you select names?

Meredith: Names are vitally important! In my new book, Bridging the Storm, I changed the name of my heroine three times before I found one that I felt fit her personality. She’s a strong person, so she needed a strong name. And she lived during the Regency, so I needed a common English name as well. I think, finally, the name Kate fit her very well. But the way she came across as a person was very tied to her name. When she had the wrong name, she didn’t come across very well. Once I found the right one, she really became the person I knew she could be.

Katya: What literary character is most like you?

Meredith: When I was a little girl I identified a lot with Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden. She was very curious and always wanted to figure things out. She was initially selfish, but then learned that happiness came through helping others (and making things grow).

Katya: What is something you want to accomplish before you die?

Meredith: I want to see my children happily employed and with partners who fulfill them and make their lives as wonderful as my husband has made mine.

Katya: Where is one place you want to visit that you haven’t?

Meredith: Australia. I’ve never been there, but I’d love to go—it’s just really far and takes a very long time to get to.

Katya: What books/authors have inspired you?

Meredith: Georgette Heyer is the author who got me started writing Regencies. Jo Beverly, Mary Jo Putney and Julia Quinn have all been big inspirations to me as well. I love their writing and hope to someday write half as well as they do.

Katya: What are you working on now?

Meredith: Right now I’ve just started editing and rewriting the fourth book in the Merry Men Quartet. I wrote it when my children were babies and I think I didn’t spend as much time working on developing the characters as I should have. It’s going to take a good amount of work to make it as good as I want it to be—I’m tearing the whole book apart, dissecting the characters and the plot and will put it back together again rewritten and probably with a lot of scenes added as well.


Meredith’s new novel releases March 15th, but you can pre-order now for only 99 cents!

Can a twenty year-old woman make life worth living for a man nearly a thousand years old?

Kate Cherington is certainly trying her best. The handsome and amusing Sir Arthur Dagonet does exactly what Kate has always dreamed of doing—travel the world, exploring new lands. He also may be her only path away from an aunt determined to keep Kate from having a life of her own. Kate knows that her only hope for the adventure she craves is to escape with Sir Arthur.
Sir Arthur has already lived through several lifetimes, thanks to the gift of immortality from the great Merlin. After centuries of adventure, he’s eager to rid himself of this gift, and to finally die. But meeting the brave and beautiful Kate brings back happy memories of long ago, he just not sure he’s ready to let go of his dreams.
From the mists of legend to the estates of the Regency, Kate and Sir Arthur tussle with a force unanticipated by either, and stronger than any desire for life or death—love.
