Hopeless But Not Serious? Claire and Gideon Have Their Troubles

Is their future hopeless? Or will Claire move to a bigger house? Find out at Sizzling Romance today—a funny/sad excerpt from my new romance mystery The Mason’s Mark: 
Claire's tiny house

In both the best and worst first day at work ever, docent Claire Wilding meets the man of her dreams, but her carefully rehearsed guided tour of the George Washington National Masonic Memorial collapses when she discovers a body and is drawn into a dark world of black ops and Italian renegade masons, of secret cabals and hidden treasure. Also cloaked in mystery is handsome Gideon Bliss, a George Washington expert who haunts the Memorial, his manner evasive. What is his secret? Claire fears she'll fall in love with him only to learn he's a thief or even a murderer. Juggling two eccentric mothers, an inquisitive sister, and an increasingly smitten detective, Claire must find answers to a complex web of intrigue, including who to trust and who to love.

Shannon O'Connor Waves at Tale Spinner

Please welcome Shannon O’Connor and her Waves series. Blue Waves, the last of the trilogy, was released April 21.  Shannon, tell us about the series.


Audrey Brown is an intelligent Registered Nurse living in Surf City, USA, who puts her career ahead of her love life. That is until pro-surfer, Chad Slater, gets wheeled into her emergency room and shakes down her formidable walls. But can her sex life go from zero to 69 with an ex-husband seeking revenge for her sending him to prison?

Chad has just the right mix of sexual charisma and determination to make all of Audrey’s dreams come true. This upbeat story includes humorous undertones with nail-biting suspense and enough sexual heat to make you stay up all night reading. Readers' romantic partners will find benefits, too! 


The waves of suspense, hot sex scenes, and humorous undertones continue in this second book of the intensely erotic, Waves Trilogy.

When Audrey learns her ex-husband Matt is released early from prison, she enters survival mode. Her only salvation is Chad, but if he can't control his urges or people from his past, this couple doesn't stand a chance.

Love, fate, destiny are all factors in their whirlwind romance. With many unexpected struggles their connection never dies. Both Chad and Audrey learn nothing worth having is easy and the blood, sweat, and tears prove this to be true.

Life has slowed down for Chad and Audrey. With Audrey’s past finally imprisoned, the relationship with the tanned god moves forward. To trust a partner again, she needs a tough lesson to feel secure and Chad is the person to heal her heart.

Moving fast to their happily ever after proves a challenge, but both risk it all for love. Lives are threatened, secrets revealed, and love stretches into realms beyond the physical world.
Catch the final wave and ride the crest on Chad and Audrey’s journey because you won’t be disappointed.
