Composing Her Desire

Alondra Foster has lead a very busy life to the point that she finds herself falling asleep behind her desk. Then seeing her family and friends find the happiness and love that she has longed for, Alondra has to decide what’s more important, love or her job.

Liam Elliott has worked hard for everything that he has earned, and he finally feels like his life is on track. Then in the blink of an eye, something threatens to take away everything he has, and only Alondra can help him straighten out the situation.

rhymes from the heart cover

-Rhymes From the Heart, which is volume one.

Tazmin Foster had the fame and the money that she had always dreamed of, but most importantly she had her family and friends that she loved dearly. Running her own record label was challenging, but she thrived under pressure and wouldn’t have traded her life for anything in the world. When it came to her romantic life, Tazmin hadn’t date much, because all the men she had dated all turned out to be trying to use her to further their career.

Adonis Elliott was an independent rapper with a huge fan base, and he loved having his music heard by his fans. As a well-known ladies man, he also loved the ladies and their eagerness to please him, which come along with the price of being famous.

Can two people with different values on dating find a middle ground so they could at least become friends, or will desire play a huge role in their relationship and lead them down the path of no return?

Producing Love Together cover

– Producing Love Together is Volume Two.

Kamala Hardwood has a hectic life as the Vice-president of Musical Curves Records, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting her own happily ever after, and her sights are set on a certain music producer.

Desmond Fleming is living the life of a rich and famous playboy, which fits perfectly with his career as a music producer at Musical Curves Records that is run by a group of beautiful and successful women.

Will Kamala keep waiting for Desmond to return her feelings, or will she find the love she craves so much with someone else?

– The next volume will be release in April of 2016, titled Soothing Her Soul.

Title: Beautifully Undone

Series #: The Beaumont Brothers 

Author: Susan Griscom

Genre: Contemporary, New Adult Coming of Age

He was broken.


Full of hate and sorrow.


Asher Beaumont never asked for much in life. All he wanted was to play his guitar, write

music, and be recognized and loved by his father. Unfortunately, that last desire was never realized. The

bastard died when Asher was just a kid. Then thirteen years later, his mother dies of a brain tumor,

Page 3 of 14

shattering him even more and leaving him hating everyone around him, except for his two best friends,

Melody Stevens and her brother, Teddy.


Melody Stevens has crushed on her best friend, Asher Beaumont her entire life. But it’s

always been a secret passion. Never something she’d act upon. But when she tells Asher she’s

prepared—and determined—to lose her virginity to a guy he considers to be nothing more than a cad

who sleeps with anything that wears a skirt, her best friend offers her a proposition she can’t really



When Asher stumbles across a letter left by his mother before her death, begging him to seek

out his half-brothers, he and Melody begin a journey of discovery. Their travels lead them to the two

brothers he has spent his life despising because they had the life he always wanted. While on their trip,

they discover a miracle they never, ever considered.

“I’ll let you buy me that Irish Coffee you promised me now. I think my fingers are about

to fall off they’re so cold,” I said.

“If I remember correctly, and I think I do, it was you who offered to buy me the


Page 5 of 14

I shrugged. “Yeah, but you have more money than I do.”

The coffee house was jam-packed with wall-to-wall people. It was Friday night, and the

city was already booming with weekend tourists. We made our way to the counter after standing in line

for about ten minutes, and Ash ordered two Irish Coffees, one heavy on the whipped cream; that was

his. The more whipped cream, the better as far as he was concerned.

“Mmmm…” I hummed as the smooth, sweet cream mixed with the coffee and whiskey

goodness warmed my throat. Ash laughed, and I frowned when I looked up at him as his finger swiped

across the tip of my nose. He held up his whipped-cream-covered fingertip before sticking it in his

mouth, sucking it dry. My stomach jittered then knotted. Wow. He was so sexy. I’d always thought so,

but now, in this light, his green eyes twinkled and his tanned face made him look just like one of the

cover model guys I drooled over in my escape world of reading romance novels. My heart thumped and

I had to look away, trying to focus on something less…Asher.

I needed to concentrate on something real. Not that Ash wasn’t real. But, I mean, a real,

possible relationship. The only problem was, most guys I knew were friends with Ash and always treated

me as if I were one of the guys, just like Ash did.

I once overheard Asher tell Brent that he’d pummel the life out of any guy who ever

tried to get into my pants. Not that getting into my pants was ever going to happen with any of those

runts, but he did manage to scare the crap out of all of them whenever the subject of me came up. It

used to make me feel good and special that he cared about me and wanted to protect me, but now that

we were both into our twenties, I just wished he’d let up a bit. How would I ever find a boyfriend with

Asher’s daunting threats forever fresh on every male’s mind this side of the bay bridge? You’d almost

think that Ash wanted me for himself, but I knew that would never happen. His feelings for me were

strong, as strong as mine for him, but his were more of a sister/brother pull that kept us close, not the

physical attraction mine were.

“Hi, Ash,” Lisa Stone sidled up against Ash’s arm. “So sorry about your mom. Let me

know if I can do anything for you, okay?”

“Thanks,” Ash responded and eyed me over the edge of his cup as he took a sip.


“Hi, Mel. Heard you two playing in the courtyard earlier. You are so good,” she said,

placing her hand upon Ash’s shoulder. “When are you performing again at the Tank?”


“Tomorrow night,” Ash supplied.

“I’ll be there. See you then.” She turned and headed toward a table in the back where a

small group of men and women were gathered.

I turned in the other direction, not wanting to watch Ash’s gaze follow Lisa’s rear


“What?” he said when he finally glanced back at me.

“Nothing,” I said, rolling my eyes.

Page 7 of 14

“Don’t give me that, ‘nothing,’ Mel. She’s nice.”

“Sure. Whatever you say.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?”


“I know you better than you know yourself, Melody Grace Stevens, and when you say

nothing and roll your eyes, there is definitely something.”

“Okay. It just seems like she’s throwing herself and her very large breasts at you all the

time. It’s rather embarrassing how she comes across so needy.”

“Needy? I thought it was sexy.”

“You would. Look, I don’t care. It’s none of my business who with or where you get your

jollies off.” If that’s the type of woman Ash was attracted to, no wonder he and I had never become

anything more than friends.

Page 8 of 14

I turned to see Alex walk through the door. Ash stiffened and sucked up the rest of his

coffee. “Are you about finished?”

“No, what’s your hurry?” I asked, only halfway finished with my


I glanced back toward Alex. He wore a light grey denim shirt, the sleeves rolled up just

below his elbows, showing off some cool tattoos on his forearms. The veins protruding as he reached up

and swiped his hair off his forehead. He looked good. Really good. Almost as good as Ash. I quickly

averted my eyes, not wanting him to know I’d been ogling him as he headed over toward


Ash knew Alex from way back in high school, but the few times I’d seen them both in the

same room together, Ash always seemed a bit put off or uneasy.

“Hey, Melody. I’ve been looking for you,” Alex said, putting his arm around my shoulder

when he reached us. Ash looked on, frowning.

“I’m right here,” I said with a slight giggle.

“I have two tickets to see Maroon Five at the Shoreline next Friday night. Wanna


Page 9 of 14

“Okay. Sure,” I said, sucking in my bottom lip, dying inside with excitement at the prospect of a

real date with a real guy. I mean someone other than Asher Beaumont. Ash and I went everywhere

together, so they never seemed like dates. And they weren’t, of course.



Susan Griscom writes

paranormal and contemporary romance. She’s hooked on gritty romances and is a huge fan of

superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond

the norm mixed with steamy romance, of course.

She loves those days

when she gets to sit around in her sweat pants, doing nothing but writing emotionally charged stories

about love and violence, and drinking coffee.

Susan lives in Northern

California with her romantic husband and together they have five great superhero kids and eight mini-

superhero grand kids, so far.

A poem to my mom about my kids…



Does she take you to oceans, to rocky rivers, on walks through ancient forest where the trees are so high and dense they block out the sun,

does she take to creeks in search for slimy salamanders,

to hand dug ponds to look at thousands of pollywogs,

does she garden, tilling the fertile earth and stop as to not injure worms,

does she help you collect rolly polly bugs, look at butterfly’s, teach you how to pet honey bees without being stung,

and when you are, does she sooth you, comfort you, remove the stinger, or when you fall put a band-aid on your scraped and bleeding knee,

is she there with you, does she talk to you,

does she listen,

does she read to you stories with no pictures, giving you the gift of imagination,

does she give you brightly colored crayons freeing your creativity,

does she sing with,

does she dance with you,

does she do her best to comb your hair that is much kinkier than her own,

does she expose you to things that you have never seen before, Latin music, Tibetan nuns, African dancers, Indonesian drums,

does she smile with you, does she laugh, does she hug you,

kiss you,

after a week or so, does she miss you,

does she play with you,

does she want to spend time with you,

does she inspire you to be your best,

and forgiving,

and compassionate,

does she show you carving stones belonging to the people who once inhabited the land,

does she want you to know more, be more, accomplish more than she,

does she want what is best for you,

does she do all of this and so much more,

does she squeeze you,

hug you,

does she love you,

well, true grandmas do.

Loving Night: Dream Catcher Series – Book 2 by Brynette L. Turner

Chaz took a desk job at the FBI to protect the woman he loves from the psychic connection that pulls her into the middle of his dangerous investigations. Yet, when he is forced to lead another undercover assignment, she must be the one to keep him safe.

They think they understand how her predictive dreams work; but neither of them anticipates the way her gift is evolving. Nighttime dreams turn into daytime visions. Knowledge of what is happening with Chaz turns into an acute awareness of what other people are feeling. It’s new. It’s unpredictable. Neither of them understands these changes until an old enemy that she fears appears in new dreams. 

Paul Watkins still wants Chaz dead. As Chaz and Stephanie work more closely on this new dangerous mission, it’s clear that there is no room for failure. They must bring this man to justice. 

With danger moving closer to home, the threat becomes greater than ever. It only makes Stephanie and Chaz more determined. No one will destroy the life they are building. No one will weaken their bond. Every night they spend in each other’s arms only makes them stronger. But will they be strong enough to survive Paul Watkins and the evil that always surrounds him?

Excerpt from 

Loving Night: Dream Catcher Series – Book 2 by Brynette L. Turner

Stephanie woke up and stared at her husband. His face was inches from hers, his warm breath slid across her cheek, and his arm rested protectively around her waist. But her heart was pounding, thanks to the images that had floated through her mind while she slept.

The strangest thing about her dream was that it was clear, even though this was the first time she’d had it. Usually, the dreams were vague and she would have them more than once before all of the details were decipherable.

There was no ambiguity this time. History taught her that either the event had happened or it was going to happen within the next day or two. Instinct told her that it would happen that day. She choked back a whisper of panic. Hadn’t she promised to be tough? Hadn’t she made a conscious decision that she would support Chaz in whatever he wanted to do with his career? Everyone thought he was happier as an undercover agent, and now the day had come when she would have to prove her fortitude. 

She glanced at the bedside clock. The alarm would ring in half an hour. Carefully removing Chaz’s arm, she slipped from beneath the covers and quietly made her way to the walk-in closet. She closed the door behind her before turning on the light. It only took a few minutes to decide what she would wear to work and set the outfit aside. During that time, she decided that she’d tell her husband about the dream over breakfast. They had agreed to handle her dreams that way—no delaying anything that involved him or his job. She nodded as if agreeing with herself, took a deep breath, forced down her anxiety, and went downstairs.

Cooking would relax her. They’d have a big breakfast today.

Chaz wanted to laugh when he walked into the kitchen an hour later and took a look at the counter. Bacon, sausage patties, potato pancakes, biscuits, fruit salad, and juice. The scent of coffee mingled with everything else and made his mouth water. Stephanie, who was standing in front of the stove with her back to him, was vigorously whisking eggs.

“Good morning, honey,” she said a little too brightly. “How did you sleep?”

Chaz didn’t answer right away. Instead, he poured himself a cup of coffee, leaned against the counter while he sipped it, and studied his wife until she turned to him with a puzzled expression on her face.

“You always cook when you’re upset,” he explained after kissing her forehead. “Do you want to tell me now or after we eat?” 

“Eggs will be ready in a couple of minutes.” She gave him a weak smile before turning her attention back to the stove. “I forgot to buy jelly, so there’s only honey for the biscuits.” 

A few minutes later, she dumped half of the eggs onto each plate and joined Chaz at the table where he was already munching on a slice of bacon. She could feel him staring at her as he chewed and she took her time spreading butter on the fluffy bread. How she phrased her next words would be very important.

“I dreamed about your job. Steve is in town, even though you didn’t expect to see him yet. He’s a great guy, Chaz. I’m glad he’ll be the person helping with your transition. You’ll make a wonderful team leader.” She looked directly into his eyes now. “I don’t know how your going undercover again will affect our marriage, so I’m a little concerned. But, it’s our destiny to be together, Chaz, so we’ll be all right.” She paused briefly and let out a sigh. “You should take the job.”

He nodded and took a sip of juice. His eyes never left hers.

“What if I don’t want the job? Your dream told you what’s going to be discussed, but did it tell you how I feel?”

“Conflicted,” she answered.

“That’s right. This might be a good decision for my career, but honestly, I don’t want to be away from you,” he admitted. “I also don’t want to miss celebrating one single special moment with our child. I want to be on the floor teaching her to roll a ball and holding her hands while she’s learning to balance and taking her first steps. She’ll need to hear my voice reading goodnight stories from the moment she comes home from the hospital and feel my hands cuddling her when she’s grouchy from teething. She needs to know how much love is in my heart just for her. She deserves that; I deserve it.” He reached across the table and linked his fingers with his wife’s. “Besides, I don’t want you being a single parent for months at a time—and that’s what it might be. We’re building this life together, Stephanie. Together.” He stood and pulled her into his arms.

“When you were in Pennsylvania and I was here without you, part of my soul was missing, sweetheart. We were both miserable.” He kissed her very lightly. “I don’t want us to go through that again.” Another kiss. “And I don’t want you to be afraid, or lonely, or overwhelmed. I’ll figure out my career; there has to be another way. Leaving you isn’t worth it.”

Stephanie tightened her arms around him. What he said sounded wonderful. But she knew what she had seen, and her gift was rarely wrong. She returned his kisses and kept quiet.

Welcome Leanora Moore



Kamala Hardwood has a hectic life as the Vice-president of Musical Curves Records, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting her own happily ever after, and her sights are set on a certain music producer.

Desmond Fleming is living the life of a rich and famous playboy, which fits perfectly with his career as a music producer at Musical Curves Records that is run by a group of beautiful and successful women. 

Will Kamala keep waiting for Desmond to return her feelings, or will she find the love she craves so much with someone else?



About Me

As a little girl, Leanora always had a notebook, where she could write her dreams and fantises down. Growing into adulthood,  she would read other authors work and say to herself that she wanted to do the same thing of being a published author. At the age of 31 , she decided to write her first novel titled The Caress of a Younger Man. Since then, she has followed it by Heavenly Kingdom and started The Voluptuously Curvy and Loving It Series, which focuses on plus size women and the men they love. Leanora started the series, because she wanted to create a movement for plus size women in the world, so that they know that they are beautiful and intelligent, and they also deserve a happy ending.

In the Voluptuously Curvy and Loving It Series, the books are titled Smooth As Silk, Finding Love Within, His Forgotten Lover, Drafted For Love, and last but not least Planning For Forever. Recently, Leanora released a new series titled The Musical Curves Series which starts with Rhymes From The Heart and then Producing Love Together.

Though out the whole process of becoming a published author, Leanora has learned that to write a great novel, she had to be willing to learn and apply the information. She also appreciates all the authors that offered her advise and knowledge.

My Loveliest Vision

Coming soon…. My Loveliest Vision

If you shall not leave, state your purpose here. My father cannot be disturbed at the moment.” Lena squeezed her lids closed, feeling the burn of tears. Tears she could not allow to fall. She pushed down the tightness in her throat. This man was different, his presence in her garden more of an incursion than any before. Her voice broke as she opened her eyes. “Milord, there is naught for you here.”

“Your father is dead. And, you…”

The leaves rattled, and the earth trembled beneath her feet.

“You are mine.”

In a heartbeat he was upon her. Overpowering in presence as the air was crushed between them. She fought the need to step back, to gain distance from this intruder. But it was too late. He was large, she could tell by how his shoulders blocked the warmth of the sun, replaced instead by his heat and the heady scent of man: leather, lye, sweat and sunshine. And again, of exotic sandalwood.

Strong fingers embraced her wrist. She startled at his touch, sucking in a gasp between her lips. His touch was warm, calloused, but so unexpectedly gentle she didn’t pull away. For a moment fear was overrun by the enthralling heat of him. The intoxicating male scent. She stood allowing him to touch her skin. Almost enjoying the way it made heat spread through her.

The Making of a Scoundrel


I know, I know, I know… it’s been a minute since I’ve been on here. I’m really bad, but I do apologize. I’ll try to be better.

Anyhow, I just wanted to take a moment to share my newest release, and guess what, it’s entirely free!!! FREE. Who don’t like free? Free pizza taste better. Free car wash makes your car look shinier. Free movie makes it more exciting.

Well now, The Making of a Scoundrel is completely free. And if it was hot before, now it’s even more sizzling.

Real estate agent Simone Jones doesn’t have time for boyfriends or lovers, not when she has a pay-or-quit notice on her door. She needs money, not distractions. Desperation sends her out to the Louisiana bayou to make a sale to the Beaudelaires—one of New Orleans’s wealthiest families.

She had no idea old money could be so young and look so fine. Seductive Sebastian Beaudelaire may have been born with the cold metal of a silver spoon in his mouth, but he’s all warmth and oh so tempting. She doesn’t want to throw away her budding career as payment for his touch, for his kiss, for him. But that’s exactly what she may do if she can’t resist the scoundrel’s trail of seduction.

Sebastian has lived a passionless life of privilege. While he loves his wife, it’s been years since she’s shown desire for him. Despite all her encouragements for him to take a lover, he’s never been tempted…until now. Simone’s the heat he’s been missing—the type of love that could make a man risk everything. For her he’s willing to take the risk, but is it fair to ask her to gamble everything, too?


Isn’t Sebastian beautiful?

Here’s a little secret and something I’ve never written about before. He’s married! Awk!

Beautiful man face

“Amazing stories that keep you wanting more.” — Fresh Fiction“I read and finished Hot Highlanders and Wild Warriors way faster than I wanted to. It left me both satisfied and hungry for more and has earned a one way pass to my keeper shelf. I loved every story, every culture portrayed, the incredibly hot sex scenes, and how powerfully vivid and well researched each story appeared on the page. Rich in the historical tidbits I wish I’d been taught in school, written like the forbidden romance novels I used to read under my high school desk. It’s emotional candy to keep a reader warm now that the weather is getting cold.”
