DescriptionBennett Langdon has a firm no-relationships policy. Still, it doesn't stop her from hooking up with a super-sexy bad boy at her best friend's wedding. After all, it's only one night—what harm could it do? Ten weeks later, a pregnant Bennett has her answer...
Linc Monahan can't believe it. This wasn't supposed to happen. He's a werewolf, and shouldn't be able to father a child with a human. Now Linc has to find some way to tell Bennett that not only do werewolves exist, but she's about to have a baby with one.
But when word of their surprise conception gets out, the fur hits the fan. There are people who don't want this baby to be born—even if it means killing. Now Bennett and Linc aren't just fighting each other...they're fighting for their lives.
My Creative Work Environment
I’m lucky. When we built our current house many years ago, I told my husband I was taking over what would be the formal living and dining room for my office. He didn’t argue. I’m kind of bossy, but there are two other living areas in the house so if he and the kids needed to lounge, they could use those.
My office walls are filled with memorabilia from all sides of my life, movies, TV and books. But the place where I am the most creative is my desk. It’s a monster six foot by five, old, solid oak desk we bought when my mom’s office was closing, and I painted it white with just enough of the chippy/peely look to satisfy my shabby chic heart. You won’t see pictures, because, well, even though I cleaned it off yesterday, it’s filled with crap again. I have curtains that we found on Joss & Main (I’m addicted to that site), and above the desk is a giant pink daisy lithograph by Andy Warhol. And to the right are animation prints from “Mary Poppins” (found on One King’s Lane my other addiction) It’s a bright, happy wall. I could face the window, but then I’d get nothing done. There’s also a giant sectional sofa behind me where my dogs Harley (140 lb Great Dane), Elvis (8 lb Shih Tzu) and Gizmo (muttastic) sleep all day while I work. And I love owls, so there are few of those around. Um, not real ones, though if that were allowed, I would so be the best owl keeper ever.
While my office is my favorite place to work, I also travel a lot, which means I have to be able to write anywhere. And I can. As long as I have three things…a candle, my tunes and headphones. I don’t know why a candle helps me focus, but it does. And the scent can help inspire prose. The headphones can block out distractions, and my tunes are another source of inspiration and keep me focused. With those three things, I can write almost anywhere. Though, I’ve been known to write on cocktail napkins in the middle of a busy bar. (When inspiration hits, a girl does whatever she has to in order to get the words down.)
I will say, I write faster in my office than anywhere else. Probably because I’m comfortable. And I’m surrounded by stuff/people/animals I love. I also hook the laptop up to a huge 40-inch screen so I can make the words super big. That was more of a necessity than a splurge. Working on a laptop for 12-18 hours a day can get old fast. So that’s it. The breakdown on what makes up my favorite creative space.
