Release Date – May 25, 2017

Fiercely independent café owner Sophia Hudson successfully balances a thriving business with providing a loving home for her son, but when her one true love saunters back into her life, she can no longer guard the truth she hid for years.

Mike Rosen, professional shortstop and known playboy, has recently turned his life around. Arriving in his hometown to visit his sister, he walks into a café, floored to see the woman who broke his heart with a toddler-sized version of himself. Although hurt and angered by Sophia’s deceit, he’s determined to be part of both her and his son’s lives.

While still loving Mike, fear and doubt consume Sophia. Plagued by those uncertainties, she also struggles with Mike’s public life, unwilling to expose their son to it. The resulting emotional roller coaster barrels through love, passion, and pain as both Mike and Sophia accept something needs to change, but is either willing to sacrifice enough before it’s too late?

STORY EXCERPT
She straightened up. “Actually, I own this place,” she stated with pride. She had worked hard to start a new life and was damn proud of herself.
“What happened in New York City?”
Impatient patrons began to grumble behind him. Sophia really didn’t have time to get reacquainted right now because she was already short-staffed.
She gestured for him to step aside to allow the next person to place their order. He followed her down the long counter until there was an opening.
She felt his eyes examine her. Her brown hair was still long and wavy just like the day she walked away from him, although it was braided today since she was at the café. She was curvier now. Things changed, but she was still healthy—firm in all the right places, soft in others. She knew a lot of girls who battled with their weight in the modeling industry, but she kept practicing healthy eating habits and exercised consistently while never overindulging.
When his eyes gaze traveled back up her body, she tried to mask the array of feelings rolling through her. Exhaustion made it hard—plain and simple. She needed to be strong and get him out of there.
Her bright green eyes met his dark, mysterious ones. “My life changed,” she responded.
Out of the corner of her eye, she saw her son walking toward her. She wished he would be distracted along the way, praying to God she could avoid a conversation she absolutely did not want to have—not now, not ever. She kept her eyes on Mike until little Ryan pulled on the hem of her shirt.
“My crayon broke,” he said with a pouty face.
Sophia crouched down and consoled her son while fetching him a new box of crayons from under the counter. Coloring was his favorite thing to do while Soph was working. She stocked up on coloring books and crayons from the dollar store, and he was a happy camper. He would even give the customers some of his artwork, making them beam with delight. She was truly blessed to have such an amazing child.
“Thanks, Mommy!”
Sophia stood up and nervously smiled, secretly praying Mike wouldn’t ask more questions. Mike was standing there with his mouth gaped opened, completely stunned. It was clear her prayers weren’t going to be answered this time.
“My reason for the change.” She gestured to her son and began wiping the counter, hoping he would take the hint and see she was busy working.
He continued to stand there in shock and she instinctively shook her head, warning him off. She didn’t want to do this now or ever. This wasn’t what she wanted. They were fine. Better than fine.
“How old is he?”
Oh God, it is happening.
Her heart was beating so hard it sounded like thunder pounding in her ears, but Mike stood still, holding his ground, as he not so patiently waited for her to answer.
After what felt like an eternity, she finally replied. “Three.”
The look on Mike’s face displayed a collection of emotions ranging from stunned to angry and everything in between. Her café definitely wasn’t the place, but apparently it was going to be the time, and there was nothing she could do about it.
She tugged on his arm and pulled him out the back door, trying to avoid a scene in front of her customers.
“How could you not tell me?” he spat.
“He’s not your responsibility, Mike. He’s mine,” she affirmed.
Sophia could play it off like he was someone else’s child just as she had been doing all this time. She had stayed off social media once she quit modeling. She knew it would raise a million questions, and she hadn’t been ready to answer them. She still wasn’t. Instead, she practically fell off the face of the earth for a while. She stayed with her mom in Arizona until she decided she wanted to raise Ryan near where she had grown up. It was a charming town with a good, small school system, much smaller than when she went there. Most of the people she knew throughout the years had gone elsewhere as the town quickly become a popular tourist spot. Like her mom, many folks cashed out during the booming real estate market.
Ever since she moved back, she quickly changed the subject about who Ryan’s father was anytime it came up, which wasn’t very often.
Her stomach rolled. No matter how many times she rehearsed this situation possibly happening, nothing could have prepared her for this moment. One look at Mike and her heart was aching all over again.
“And who else’s?” he asked with his arms crossed in front of him, displaying a stern expression of determination.
Her heart hurt so bad she didn’t answer. She couldn’t even look him in the eyes.
“Dammit, Soph. Just tell me,” Mike demanded. “Is he mine?”

ADULT EXCERPT
“Stop thinking, Soph,” he protested.
Her eyes were still closed, and he knew her mind was elsewhere
“I’m not—” she stuttered trying to figure out what she should say. How in the world could he still do that? “Dammit,” she cursed under her breath, admitting her guilt.
His smirk grew wider as he sat up. He swiftly yanked her panties down then pulled her on top of him and moved toward the center of the bed. He adjusted her body in one quick motion until her back was on the mattress, centered in between his muscular limbs, her legs draped over his shoulders, her butt against his amazing chest, and his dessert was wide open right in front of his face.
“My tongue is going to chase those thoughts right from your head.”
And did it ever. With one leisurely lick, her mind went blank, concentrating on nothing but the feel of his body on hers.
He always liked this oral sex position with her, as odd as it was. He said he enjoyed being able to hold on to her ass or play with her breasts as he pleased, watch her writhe, and feel her legs quake so close to his head.
He continued to lap at her like a thirsty cat. His tongue occasionally diving into her, then moving to circle her clit.
“Mmm, so wet, Soph. How is it you taste sweeter?”
She giggled at his dirty talk. “Maybe it was the pumpkin roll? The carrot cake?” She paused. “Motherhood?” Her life and womanly parts had changed and there was no denying it.
He grinned against her wet crotch. “It looks good on you,” he tenderly complimented.
Her heart did a little flip. “So do you.”
He kissed her clit a few times, then ran his tongue over it, increasing the force each time. He stopped to lick her, drinking up what had already seeped out of her. He went back to the tight nub, repeating the same tantalizing actions causing her ache to escalate and her toes to curl. He kneaded her ass cheeks, his finger moving closer and closer to her tight hole.
“Mike,” she said breathlessly. God, she wanted him to take all of her, every which way.
He sucked on her clit, harder and harder until she was biting her lip to keep from screaming. Orgasmic tremors ran through her body as he continued to lavish her, drawing out her pleasure.
“Holy fuck,” she panted, her heart racing from the excitement. She had almost forgotten what it was like to have mind-blowing orgasms. Mike always knew exactly how to take her to the edge and make sure her ride lasted as long as possible.
“You’re gorgeous, Soph. Absolutely stunning.”
She gazed up and saw him grinning, his lips glimmering with her cum.
“Come here,” she said. “Let me have a taste.”
He shifted her legs off his shoulders because she sure as hell couldn’t move them yet. He positioned himself on top of her, their heads now near the bottom of the bed.
She licked his lips. “Mmm.”
He ground his body against hers, letting her feel how hard he was again. “This is what happens every time you moan, woman. I almost had to leave the table during dessert.”
She lifted her hips off the bed, his cock pressing against her clit. He moved over her, her slickness coating him. The question of whether or not they should use a condom came to mind. She had an IUD in, but had he been safe each and every time he was with someone else?
She learned her lesson about the birth control pills she had been on when she got pregnant with Ryan, thus the IUD. Mike may have had some crazy times, but he wasn’t stupid. She knew he would never do anything to hurt her and she would do her very best to not get pregnant again unless it was planned.
They had to establish trust.
As he continued to rub against her, her eyes searched his longing dark brown ones. The passion, the desire, the future she saw there rocked her to the core as the words, “Make love to me,” rolled off her tongue.
He immediately thrust inside her, filling her so perfectly, ecstasy hitting every nerve ending as he moved in and out of her with his arms enveloping her. She wrapped her legs around him, drawing him in deeper, squeezing her vaginal muscles around his hard cock.
“Baby,” he said with bated breath.
He kissed her with so much passion, she was heading toward the edge again. He moved his tongue along her neck, leaving a heated trail as she ran her fingers over his shoulders and back. He pushed up onto his arms so he could cup her breast, then pinch her hard nipple.
“Do that again,” she whimpered.
He moved his attention to her other breast, the sensitive area aching for a little pain and he delivered exactly what she wanted.
He rolled over, pulling her on top of him, then sat up.
“Ride me, Soph,” he requested, working his magical tongue and teeth on her tits.
She moved her body up and down his shaft. She leaned back, circling her hips. Mike yanked her back close to his body, his hands all over her. His need to have her as close as possible was evident in his urgent touch.
She ground her clit against his pubic bone, aching for another release. Mike’s finger dipped into her puckered hole, the various pressures setting her off. Her orgasm rolled through her as she clenched his cock, milking his pleasure from him simultaneously. Lustful groans filled her room.
She loved watching him peak. Was there anything better than coming at the same time as the man you were in love with?
Yes, she really did still love him. She never stopped.

So What’s Up With Me ~ Author Nicky D?

Cheesy intro, I know. But I have a tendency to write my thoughts out exactly how they spill from my brain to my fingertips. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve come out here to give an update on my life, or on anything really… So here goes…

First of all, just like with most people, what a jam-packed year I have had, especially the past few months leading into the Holiday Season. Now, if these Missouri temperatures would only drop down to where they should be, I’d be a lot more ‘jolly’ right now. It’s like 70 degrees out today! WHAT? Come ON MOTHER NATURE! WTH! Where is the cold and snow? And did I mention the cooollllddddddd…….Bahhhh! (Imagine me screaming this from outside in my back yard which is currently under water due to all this rain.)

Where was I? Oh, so the past few months have been busy as usual. I was finally able to get Raven’s Undoing released. What an accomplishment! I admit, I’ve been feeling really “behind” and disappointed in myself, as if I should be getting these books out faster, but let’s get real for a minute here. I have written and gone through the whole publishing process, and released 2 books in less than 2 years! My first book, Raven’s Innocence, only took 9 months from start to finish. Raven’s Undoing took a little longer. But you know what? I did it! And not to toot my own horn too much, but I must say, I am DAMN PROUD of myself for doing it! Balancing a family, career, and writing, took a lot out of me. It is no easy feat. And let’s not forget about the hours of marketing and promotion that we all have to put into this business as well. OH, and then there’s keeping up with social media and interacting with your readers. This isn’t easy…. But you know what? I wouldn’t change any of it for the world.

I FLOVE what I do! (giving credit to the beautiful author Kristina Canady for the word Flove. I Flove it and I Flove her.) I love to write. It runs deep within every fiber of my being. It’s something I HAVE to do. If you’re a writer, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s a part of who I am. Period. These past couple of years I feel like I have really grown and been walking down a path of self discovery. Some days I walk alone. Other days I walk with my friends, family, and author family! So many wonderful people that come and go with me on this beautiful chaotic journey. *insert happy crying face here*

To answer the question that is coming at me from so many, YES I am writing a 3rd book. Like I said, I’ll never stop writing. It is part of the Snowhaven Series. No, I do not know when it will be finished. To be honest, I only have chapter one written right now. I have been stressing myself out, telling myself I have to get this third book out asap! The stress of that irrational thought has me so stressed out that I’m finding myself unable to write another word right now. Finally I told myself to just STOP! Take a break and recharge Nicky…

It’s the holidays and right now, I just want to enjoy this time of year with my family and friends. So I’m taking a small break from writing on my 3rd book. But believe me, it’s only a small one. I just need to get through the holidays; but then the first of the year, I will pick it back up and keep writing. I don’t know how long it will take to finish because with this next book, I am going to write it completely from start to finish. Afterwards, I will then decide if I want to release it as one book, or split it up. I am writing Kat’s story and this book is going to be much darker than my first two. *insert devilish grin here* My imagination is running wild on this one…

Also, on a personal note, and not to give up too much detail, but I have been working through some health issues. An auto-immune disorder has decided it wants to try and kick my Arse. But my doctor is amazing and believes we are getting on top of this early. We’re still in the stages of lots of testing and really getting everything figured out and coming up with a treatment plan. So as you can imagine, this in itself has been really taking hold on me lately. Unfortunately, my writing has been on the backburner. But there is a light at the end of my tunnel and this too shall pass. I’m a strong woman. And I won’t give into this. Some days are better than others, but I keep my head up, keep praying and just know that – I got this!

As always, I want to thank everyone for their continued support. I have been blessed in so many ways. I know life has a tendency to knock us down, and then kick us even harder once we fall; but please remember that it can always be worse. Don’t forget to count your blessings and be thankful for all that you do have. Remember everyone has their own battles to fight and someone is always looking at you wishing they had it half as good as you do. Don’t be so quick to point the finger but slow to understand. You don’t have to like or agree with everyone you meet, but you also don’t have to be cruel or add to their despair. This world is turning into such an ugly and cruel place. Don’t be part of it…. Kindness costs nothing. Sprinkle that sh*t everywhere!

Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays. And take care of yourselves and each other! Wishing everyone a happy ending to 2015, and blessed beginnings to 2016!

Much Love,
Nicky D, Author

Ps. I do love hearing from my readers, so drop me an email anytime. NDWhite_Author@zoho.com

For those of you reading Raven’s Undoing, two things…..

1st – I discovered an issue with the my book links and the paperback and kindle versions were not linked together, but Amazon has fixed this.

2nd – As you finish the book, I am dying to know what your thoughts are as to how I ended it. And not to give away any spoilers, feel free to email me at my author email address. NDWhite_Author@zoho.com.

And 3rd (okay I had 3 things to say…) – I have ideas in place for the 3rd book, but I’m curious….Whose story are you wanting to hear next? Asher, Kat, Janie? What about Holly, Jennifer, Valerie, Jonathan, or Spencer? All of them are talking to me and they all have something to say….who do you want to hear from next?
