Here Comes Sexy ~ @oddlynn3 #LynnCrain #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #MSS154

 Welcome to week 154th week of My Sexy Saturday. This week’s theme is Here Comes Sexy.  I’ll admit, this one is a little hard to pick because all my heroes are sexy and they exude sexy when they walk into a room. That said, I decided to find my sexy snippet this week from a book in my backlist.

Things in the new house have finally got a little better as we did get our furniture last weekend, hence why I wasn’t here. Still, they left us with too many boxes to unpack because they didn’t have a big enough crew. I’ve decide that there’s a story there somewhere and I will write it someday. And I got my desk, my real desk, so I’ve totally run out of excuses for keeping things on my blog. Yes, Monday’s Scoop and My So-Called Writing Life Columns will happen this week if I can get them written before returned to Nevada for a short while to sort some reno issues out there too. And boy do I have a lot to share! Including the fact that I’m still not at my desk but a smaller tablet that doubles for meals. Arghhh!

Don’t forget to visit all the awesome authors of My Sexy Saturday this week. This is a fun place to test the waters for books and authors as each will share a sexy snippet with you. Every book is special and even though a theme is given each week, authors are not required to follow it exactly as every author has their own definition of sexy. That means sexy can run the gamut from smoking hot to very sweet romance.

This week, like I said, I’m going back to my back list and a book called, More Than Robotics. This book is second in a series that needs to be continued here in the near future. It is definitely one of my favorite books ever and it’s possible my favorite genre of sci-fi romance. It is from my traditional epublisher, eXtasy Books. Here’s the set up for this wonderful novella:

There were only three things in life that Captain Bekka Taylor wanted in life: 1) Command of a Warrior Class Star Marauder, 2) To grow old gracefully and 3) A lover who understood her fiery nature. She was accomplishing two out of her three objectives very nicely when an internal IUA conflict begins to encompasses the whole world as she knows it. Then Lieutenant Javed Malik comes aboard, clearly younger than she, with dreamy eyes and a secret meant only for her. But letting him in means getting rid of years of frustration and anguish and maybe her career. Can she survive another war or the smoldering looks from her junior officer sent to protect her 24/7?.

Here’s my seven paragraphs from this great story:


Stepping out of the elevator, I paused for a moment, then walked to the window where I watched the landing of the Valkyrie. I had an affinity for the old birds since they were the first ship I had learned to maneuver. The ship might look ancient, but was the workhorse of the fleet in many ways. It could make short or long jumps and it carried one or a hundred guns depending on the mission. It could also take supplies or people to or from a planet as well as be the fiercest of fighters when needed. And many times, it had saved my ass in my early career. Fifteen years ago we had been in a war against terrorists not unlike those of the UFF. The bigger IUA got, the more we had been called on to protect the outlying planets and colonies, some of which were in the Alliance and some which were not.
My wait was short lived. The landing bay doors opened and the ship glided in for a near perfect landing. This was different than the beginning of the journey when the smaller ship was thrown out of the larger ship at the end of a catapult. I had to wait until the airlock secured before I went out to the deck. The light turned green, I opened the door and marched toward the ship that had caused my crew concern. I couldn’t help but admire the ship. I didn’t wait long for the door to cycle with the loading ramp coming down. A few more minutes passed before the pilot received the all clear from the flight officer on deck. I could have disposed with all the formality, but decided not to. I didn’t want anyone to think certain people had special privileges. The crew didn’t need to know who Fallon was to me.
I don’t know what I expected, but when the pilot removed his helmet, my breath caught in my throat as my heart skipped a beat. His ebony eyes and thick, black hair immediately had my attention. I always had a soft spot for dark-haired men. His skin was like a reddish cafĂ© au lait and his smile was brilliant. Years had gone by since anyone had made my heart flutter and this man sent me into hyper drive with his good looks and great body.
“What’s your name, soldier? My comspec was a little lax in giving me your particulars.” I turned and headed toward the elevator. No one needed to see the desire building in me.
“Malik, sir.”
I glanced back at him, but continued to walk. “A first name?”
“Lieutenant Javed Malik, sir.”

My Sexy Crush ~ @oddlynn3 #LynnCrain #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors, #MSS151

Welcome to week 151st week of My Sexy Saturday. This week’s theme is My Sexy Crush.  It’s been years since I’ve had a crush but I can still remember the pull on the heart strings and the flutter in the stomach. So, when trying to find the perfect snippet, I went to my current story because the hero and heroine had mutual crushes on each other when they were young. It was the closest I could get.

Life has been kicking my butt this month with the new house. So much to do, so little time. One positive thing is that I did get wonderful internet here, so I have no more excuses. I will be back on track with the Monday’s Scoop and My So-Called Writing Life Columns this week. And boy do I have a lot to share! Including the fact that I’m still not at my desk but a smaller tablet that doubles for meals. Ugh!

Please visit all the awesome authors of My Sexy Saturday. This is a fun place to test the waters for books and authors as each will share a sexy snippet with you. Every book is special and even though a theme is given each week, authors are not required to follow it exactly as every author has their own definition of sexy.

This week, I’m going back to my latest release, Sealed With A Kiss, found in Letterbox Love Stories. This story was so fun to write and is part of my new series Time Travel Bureau. This novella with be the kick off story and will be sold as a single title early next year. Here’s the set up for this wonderful novella:

In 2084, time travelling detective, Tandi Reynolds, tipped off by a letter, needs to stop an assassin before he kills a newly elected leader. When she finds him in 1874, Vienna, it’s clear a cold blooded killer is only one of her problems. Time is fleeting, so falling in love with her contact, the charismatic  Count Leopold Radetzky von Radetz, is a bad idea, but keeping her feelings in check is not easy when she relies on him for her every need.

Here’s my seven paragraphs from this great story:



She slowly sat up and drew her legs under her. “I supposed it would be too much to ask if you have an aspirin hiding somewhere…would it?”
“They should have packed you one in that silly little suitcase they sent with you.”
His accent was smooth, too smooth. She leaned in closer. “Do I know you?”
“I don’t know…should you?” He gave his head a toss and a shake, as if posing or possibly flinging water off himself.
She squinted at his profile, taken back to a time when she was young and her father traveled with the armed services of the US. Since they had family in Austria, he took a position for a few years in Germany. There she met all sorts of people and a kid named Leo who spoke English as well as she did. They were inseparable that first summer slowly growing apart as her time to leave got close.
She had been only twelve at the time and tried to keep up with him through letters as well as cards during the holidays. But somewhere in high school, they totally drifted apart and the exchanges stopped.
“You,” she whispered, reaching out to grab him by his lapels and drag him closer. Yup. Same eyes, same boyish grin with a touch of devil-may-care. “So that’s why I got the letter.”

Monday’s Scoop ~ @oddlynn3 #LynnCrain #AWriterInVienna #amwriting #amediting #amcreative #Happy4th



Hi Everyone!

Alas, the Austria Scoop is no more as I am here back in the States. What I do propose is to tell you about things I’ve seen in Austria or happenings around where I live. Sure, many of you don’t want to know about where I live most of the time but now that I’ll be in two places, maybe there will be things you’ll love to hear about.

But if you’ve been following me, you know we’ve decided to keep our Nevada house, at least for now, and it’s only 30 miles from lost wages – errr – Las Vegas. The other place we’ll be living is Los Alamos, New Mexico, which happens to be only an hour and less than an hour from two of my favorite places in the world – Taos and Santa Fe – both have been places on my ‘to live at’ list forever. Matter of fact, when I first got married, I begged my husband to get a job in Los Alamos and for years he tried. We both think it ironic that he gets to work there at the end of his career though that’s at least another ten years.

Anyway, we’re fixing up the Nevada house with a new roof, possibly new windows and just a general overhaul because it needs it. And the New Mexico house will be renovated in certain areas because it was a duplex at the start of its life. It’s gone back and forth between a single family home and a duplex for a while now. It has a half acre and we have plans for the backyard as well.

When we were looking at homes, we decided from the start we wanted to live on top of the mesa instead of the other places we could have. Don’t get me wrong, we looked at the other places but nothing appeals more the me than a home in the mountains and at 7300 feet, this one qualifies. The first house we chose was one that was a duplex converted to a single family home with a yoga studio and two kitchens. The DH was in a quandary as to what we’d do with another kitchen when I told him that we could build a master retreat and use the plumbing for an awesome bathroom.

Once he was on board, we were happily making plans when we got in a bidding war. Unfortunately, we lost that house but the next one we bid on was two houses down with more done, like the windows, the electric, new roof and furnace upgrades plus it was cheaper. We do have to put in a drive and a garage but we figure those things balance out because the cost would have been about the same overall. We also have to get new siding but we have a plan and we can’t wait to do this.

We’ve talked for years about doing a renovation but the DH has been afraid because of horror stories. I reminded him that we always ‘negotiate’ things, so why not with this as well. Again, he’s on board and I can’t wait to have a fantastic summer home. The heat in Nevada is killing me and I’d decided within the first couple weeks that I couldn’t make this my home during the hot months. Hence the two places. Here’s a couple of pictures of the places appropriately marked.

And who would I be if I didn’t wish everyone in the US a Happy 4th of July! Keep it fun…keep it cool…and keep it safe. Hope you enjoyed this little look into what’s been happening with me on the new Monday Scoop. See you all next week!

My Sexy Boss ~ @oddlynn3 #LynnCrain #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors, #MSS148

Welcome to week 148th week of My Sexy Saturday. This week’s theme is My Sexy Boss. I don’t have many boss books and only one comes to mind. But I do love sexy bosses and have laughed, cried, chuckled and sighed about many of them.

New month, new commitment and I have already scheduled the Monday’s Scoop and the My So-Called Writing Life columns. And while I will schedule the rest of this months, please know that they will be written before things even happen, so I might have to make corrections later. This last week has been horrid with the house deal in New Mexico through no fault of anyone except new home lending regulations. So I’m still at the dining room table and becoming slightly more comfortable here. Anyway…on to the reason we’re here!

Don’t forget to visit all the awesome authors of My Sexy Saturday. This is a fun place to test the waters for books and authors as each will share a sexy snippet with you. Every book is special and even though a theme is given each week, authors are not required to follow it exactly as every author has their own definition of sexy.

This week, we’re going back to a series that I love. Now, I know that you all have seen this one many times but let’s face it…elves are sexy. This story, The Thing About Elves, is part of my wonderful Santa’s Elves series. Here’s the set up for this wonderful novella:

It’s been two years since Angie’s friend, Tessa, got married to Jedrick and introduced her to his brother, Ardan. From the moment, she saw him she knew he was the man for her. There’s only one problem…he’s elf…an elf who swears human and elves don’t mix. But Angie has other plans in mind. When Ardan asks her to his house after the delivery of Tessa’s and Jedrick’s twins, she jumps at the chance. Even though he keeps telling her nothing will happen, they have been doing this dance for a very long time. And when she teases him by caressing his body, Ardan knows he’s lost. But love and commitment are more than just hot sex. Ardan still doesn’t trust human women and Angie is determined to prove that she is the woman…the only woman…for him. She loves medicine, the North Pole and him more than anything else in the world. When Ardan is summoned to help a hurt elf, he is unavailable and Angie goes in his stead to prove to him that she loves the community of elves as much as he does. But something goes terribly wrong and Ardan is left to care for a comatose and possibly dying Angie. Ardan realizing just how precious this woman is, vows to prove to her his love is fathomless. No matter what the future holds.

Here’s my seven paragraphs from this great story:



“I hear a ‘but’ in there somewhere. Just what’s the problem, Ardan? Am I finally getting on your nerves?” she winked at him.
Stepping back he looked down at her. Was he that transparent? He drew himself up to tower over her. “Your incessant chatter does put me on edge sometimes.”
He could almost feel the deep chuckle in her throat. It was almost as if a cat were purring.
“Are you sure it’s that? Maybe it’s my quick wit or sexy body that’s thrown you off?” she leaned into him. “Surely, you can’t resist me forever.”
Ardan snorted. Resist, indeed. “Madam, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Sure you do. You just don’t want to admit it, big boy. You want me,” she closed her eyes as if breathing in his scent just like he had done moments before. “And I want you.”
Slowly, she slid a finger up his leg and under his lab coat. If that hand or finger went an inch high, she would know that he lied. Still, he tried to will his body to obey his commands. Human women were off limits. Angie’s hand continued its journey up his leg and he knew he was lost. How was he going to explain this?

My Sexy Celebration ~ @oddlynn3 #LynnCrain #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #MSS147

Welcome to week 147th week of My Sexy Saturday. This week’s theme is My Sexy Celebration. This is an awesome theme this week as I celebrate something quite special. I know, I know, this is supposed to be about my characters celebrating something but I know they understand.

The best laid plans have come and gone as I’m still trying to get back to the Monday’s Scoop and the My So-Called Writing Life columns. These last two weeks have been a whirlwind as we come down to the final stretch of purchasing a home in New Mexico. And I can’t wait to have my office set up…then…there’s the matter of the heat as it’s been hotter than Hades here in Nevada. At any rate, at least I’m getting closer to what I want and need to produce even more books.  

Don’t forget to visit all the awesome authors of My Sexy Saturday. Each author is showcases their book in a fun way by sharing a sexy snippet with you. Each one is special and even though a theme is given each week, authors are not required to follow it exactly as every author has their definition of sexy. And then there’s the fact that not every author writes about spaceships.

Now back to my celebration…last time I was here…I talked about my new story. I didn’t know when the story was going to be up for preorder or sale and though, I knew it would happen, I was on pins and needles. I am proud to say that Sealed With A Kiss, my story that is part of the Letterbox Love Stories anthology, is finally up for preorder at Amazon and other major retailers. Like I said last time, this story introduces the couple that will be the center of the Time Travel Bureau series. Here’s the set up for this wonderful novella:



In 2084, time travelling detective, Tandi Reynolds, tipped off by a letter, needs to stop an assassin before he kills a newly elected leader. When she finds him in 1874, Vienna, it’s clear a cold blooded killer is only one of her problems. Time is fleeting, so falling in love with her contact, the charismatic Count Leopold Radetzky von Radetz, is a bad idea, but keeping her feelings in check is not easy when she relies on him for her every need.

Here’s my seven paragraphs from this great story:


Suddenly, the door swept open and a very tall, dark-haired man came in. “Aloisia, quit trying to take care of me so much. Tandi and I are already friends. We know everything about one another…don’t we, my dear?”
Tandi just stared at him for a moment, not knowing what to say. There was something…if she could just get her mind to work. “I’m not sure if we know everything, as a lady does hope to keep one or two secrets to herself,” she quipped back in a voice sounding much better than she felt.
The look on Aloisia’s face when Count Radetzky plopped down on her bed was priceless. “Why don’t you go down and get Madam Reynolds some breakfast?”
“My Lord…have you gone mad? You are already the talk of the town!” She flounced out and slammed the door.
If the sound didn’t hurt her head so much, Tandi would have been laughing hysterically. All of Gabriel Getz’s instructions went out the window with that one act. “I don’t think you really needed to do that…do you?”
She slowly sat up and drew her legs under her. “I supposed it would be too much to ask if you have an aspirin hiding somewhere…would it?”
“They should have packed you one in that silly little suitcase they sent with you.”

The Letterbox Love Stories will be on sale until July 11 for only $0.99. You can currently preorder it now for a July 4th release. What a fantastic way to celebrate life and love!

Sexy in Time ~ @oddlynn3 #LynnCrain #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #MSS145

Welcome to week 145th week of My Sexy Saturday. This week’s theme is Sexy in Time. This theme couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time. I am actually going to have a new release that is a time travel. It will be coming out this month and I couldn’t be more excited. This is the first new piece for me in a few years. I am so hoping it will be followed by many more this year but only time will tell.  

While I had planned to get back to the Monday’s Scoop and the My So-Called Writing Life columns last week, not much happened. Moving, getting a new place and just life has taken precedent more times than not. Plus with the story I was just talking about, I had a deadline. The first in many years to be honest as I’ve been working on deadlines of my own making. Still, there will be much more detail and yes, I plan to get back to these columns this week. Again, there is just too much to share here and I want this to be about my new story.

Don’t forget to visit all the awesome authors of My Sexy Saturday. Each author is showcasing their book in a fun way by sharing a sexy snippet with you. Each one is special and even though a theme is given each week, authors are not required to follow it exactly as every author has their definition of sexy. And then there’s the fact that not every author writes about spaceships.

Like I said, this week I’m going talk about a brand new story. It’s in an anthology called Letterbox Love Stories and my individual story is entitled Sealed With A Kiss. The couple that I’ve introduced in it will go on to have many more stories, so this is only the beginning. Next year, this story will be released as the first story in a new series called the Time Travel Bureau series and will be the first of Tandi and Leo’s many adventures.  Here’s the set up for this wonderful novella:


In 2084, time travelling detective, Tandi Reynolds, tipped off by a letter, needs to stop an assassin before he kills a newly elected leader. When she finds him in 1874, Vienna, it’s clear a cold blooded killer is only one of her problems. Time is fleeting, so falling in love with her contact, the charismatic Count Leopold Radetzky von Radetz, is a bad idea, but keeping her feelings in check is not easy when she relies on him for her every need.

Here’s my seven paragraphs from this great story:


Then nothing except a popping sound followed by pain as she was dropped on her side, the suitcase crashing next to her and the reticule clutched in her hand. Slowly, Tandi sat up and rubbed the back of her head. That was so not what she was expecting. The intense white light emitted from her mode of transportation had made her eyes burn and now she felt as if she’d been on an all-night bender with the nastiness clinging to the inside of her mouth. She swallowed hard trying to dissipate the feeling she’d felt in those final moments of being elsewhere, and prayed she was close to her target destination: Count Radetsky’s palace.
She couldn’t believe she was here, nor when here was. True time travel had always been theoretically possible, but…she stretched her neck, trying not to think about it…she had a job to do, then hopefully return to her well-ordered life.
Hell, who was she kidding? Once she got back, her life would be anything but well-ordered as she’d be unique, being someone who had successfully time-travelled. Unfortunately, that would all be kept within the confines of the Time Travel Bureau as the world could never know how they were kept safe from the Desmond Draeggers of the world. They’d even made her sign a non-disclosure document before MI6 would let her step inside their damn time travel device. 
Let’s face it, the only reason she was sent back here was that the letter had come to her and it was a direct threat on the man who would lead the European Union. She tried to get her bearings as she looked around her. It took a moment before she could see the lush grounds attached to a Viennese Palace. The gentle noise from the water calmed her nerves as she moved, a little unsteadily, toward it.
She soon found herself at the edge of a magnificent fountain, complete with cherubs and horses and…what were those things? She leaned over, cupped her hands and pulled the cool water over her face. It did little to dissipate the nausea she felt welling up. She now realized she should not have eaten the huge pastrami sandwich the night before she left and heaved the contents of her stomach into the fountain.
The sharp intake of breath behind her, made her turn and sink to the ground with a slight moan. The handsome man with dark hair and blue eyes was talking to her but Tandi couldn’t understand a word he said even though she knew it was German. Any other time and she’d be drooling over how attractive the man was. Through her sickness haze, she reached up and pushed the small button behind her ear. To most, it looked like a mole but to her it would be a lifesaver as it prompted her understanding of a language she wasn’t proficient in. And the tone of the man couldn’t be more clear.
“Tell me you didn’t just puke in my fountain?” He gave a disgusted click of his tongue and frowned at her before moving to her side. His hand went to her head. “You’re clammy. Guess time travel is rough going, huh?” He questioned, switching to English. Hauling her to her feet, he then swept her up in his arms when her knees buckled. “I guess you’re the great Tandi Reynolds, the woman sent to save the world.”

Come and Get My Sexy ~ @oddlynn3 #LynnCrain #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #MSS143

Welcome to week 143rd week of My Sexy Saturday. This week’s theme is Come and Get My Sexy. This theme is a fun one and can be interpreted many ways. In my world, I can’t think of anything more sexy than a woman going after someone she’s attracted to and think of the many ways that can happen.

I am actually going back to the Monday’s Scoop and the My So-Called Writing Life columns this week. There is just too much to share here and I decided now was the time to get those started again.

I want to remind you to visit all the awesome authors of My Sexy Saturday. Each author is showcasing their book in a fun way by sharing a sexy snippet with you. Each one is special and even though a theme is given each week, authors are not required to follow it exactly as every author has their definition of sexy. And then there’s the fact that not every author writes about spaceships.

This week I’m going back to my Santa’s Elves series and the story An Elf’s Magic. I love this series and have had readers discover it recently. They’ve asked if I’m going to continue it and I can happily say, yes. I know I’ve used it this month but the scene shows a little more of the story that’s just right for this theme. Here’s the set up for this wonderful book:



Lacey Sinclair wants to be a doctor but life and circumstance has made that path impossible. Given the chance at the job of a lifetime and the promise of enough money to see her through med school, she is hesitant. Something draws her to one certain man that she can’t put her finger on. Her body is alive and her mind sharp, focused when she’s near him. So before she can live the life of her dreams, she must discover just who Cuinn Lochlin is to her and her future.

Here’s my seven paragraphs from this great story:

“Dance with me,” a seductive voice said close to his ear.
Tingles traipsed through his insides and his body tightened in response to the seductive nature of her voice.  “What?” Instant attraction to the female caught him off guard. He turned his head and his mouth brushed against a pair of soft pink lips as an exotic scent wrapped itself around him.
“I said, dance with me.” A pair of beautiful brown eyes stared up at him.
“Do I know you?” The staccato beat of his heart tapped against his chest and he hoped she didn’t notice.  She took a breath and the mere act turned him on even more.
“We met in Boston. You’re Cuinn Locklin and I’m Lacey Sinclair. I’m a friend of your cousin’s. We met at a party, had a drink and even talked about going out sometime. Unfortunately that never happened.”  She smiled and arched her eyebrow in what seemed to be an open invitation. “Yet.”
His gaze widened. “I remember. How did you get here?”
“The sleigh picked us up.”
