#MidWeekTease: “Poor guy seems nervous…” #MWTease #IntheArmsoftheLaw (@KaceyHammell)

MWTease15Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.


This week’s tease comes from Illusions.

Isabella Knowles has kept her relationship with Brady Jacobs a secret from everyone including her family. Now she’s starting to realize that perhaps she’d been only fooling herself to think that she could get away with no entanglements…

Her current lover had just heard about a night, albeit long ago, between her and another man. She couldn’t help but wonder what he thought, if it would bother him. From the angry look on his face when she finally met his eyes, she had her answer. It bothered him a lot.

illusions-lrg“I hope I am not interrupting anything crucial, detectives.” Brady’s detached tone raised her ire.

Who was he to be pissed? She didn’t care about his past relationships and what she and Connor didn’t come close to that. But one night of unbridled, crazy sex with Connor didn’t even compare to having sex with Brady. She wouldn’t give him the satisfaction of knowing it, though.

“What brings you down here?” With nonchalance, as if she had no cares in the world, she made her way to her chair and sat down. She tossed the Gazette on top of the desk and took a sip of her coffee.

“Have a seat, man.” Connor motioned to the small loveseat in their office, then moved to his desk and sat on the corner of it.

Poor guy seems nervous, she thought with amusement. It was a bit awkward, but really, they were all adults.

Brady looked from one to the other, holding her gaze for too long. She looked away. She picked up a file from her desk, hoping he would get on with why he was paying them a visit.

“I came to tell you I had a glimpse of Melody Mason in the grocery parking lot.” Brady didn’t seem too happy about sharing the information but they hurled questions at him.

“What do you mean? What did you see?” Her voice seemed louder than her partner’s. “Did you see the unsub? Anything of his face?”

“Whoa, whoa, you two.” Brady held up a hand, staying their questions and offered Connor a file. “Everything I know is in there. After I got up about six this morning and had a shower, I sat down to get my thoughts on paper. It’s all there.”

She hurried to Connor’s side, placing an arm over his neck and reading over his shoulder. This could be the break they were looking for. Looking up, she saw Brady watching them. There was a naked look in his eyes, a raw intensity she had never seen before.

When he glanced at her arm on Connor’s neck, she quickly removed it, cursing at herself for letting his obvious upset get to her.

God, one would think he was her boyfriend. She couldn’t breathe. Oh, God

The latest from Kacey Hammell (@KaceyHammell)

Good morning all. I hope summer is treating you well. It’s hot as blazes here in Ontario. All the towns, burgs surrounding me are all on a burning ban, which means no open barrel burning of newspapers, trash etc.  There have been so many fires as of late because of the weather, it’s terrifying. A local farm was decimated due to ball-bearings on a tractor catching fire which poured out into the fields. Devastation is the only word I can think of to remotely describe it all. My hay fields are pitiful, we’re in desperate need of rain — about a week or two’s worth would do. So much loss and sadness.

In writing related news. I’m 3/4 of the way finished writing the 2nd Canadian Muscle story. It’s going well. Farm has kept me busy so some days are not as productive as others but overall, writing is going well.

And I am currently getting final steps done to have the “In the Arms of the Law” Series Collection put into print. All 4 stories, released to date, will be in one print volume. There will also be an Ebook edition as well. The main reason for doing the prints is that I have another book signing. This time in London, Ontario, in September. I’m really looking forward to the event and if you’re in the area, here is the link to more information >> http://igniteyoursoulauth.wix.com/iyse

Here are the print and Ebook edition covers for the collection.

Until next time, happy reading!

St. Patrick’s Day Recipe and Sale (@KaceyHammell) #99cents


Good morning all. Kacey here, wishing you a Happy Hump Day. And happy St. Patrick’s Day which is fast approaching.


I’ve always been a writer who believes in “writing what you know”. And that includes everything from places visited by myself or family, personal experiences, heritages and a lot in between. True life can quite often enhance a story, intentional or not for some, and it puts me into the story a lot more intricately when this happens.

Case in point is the redheads that I write. I have many stories that do feature the sassy, feisty and flaming hair heroines who take very little crap from anyone and give the heroes a hard fought run for the money. As many know I have a temper that matches the red in my hair quite well and I make no bones in living up to the standards of the “legend” that comes with being part of such a breed.

St. Patrick’s Day has always been a “holiday” I enjoy celebrating and some years I get quite carried away with everything green and crazy. LOL

Today I thought I’d share one of my favourite beverage recipes I’ve enjoyed over the years.

The Lucky Leprechaun

1 part Melon Liqueur (like Midori)

1 part Coconut Rum (like Malibu)

6 parts Pineapple juice Lime wedge for garnish

Pour ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake briefly.

Pour over ice in a tall glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Be sure to check out my “In the Arms of the Law Series”. Book 1, Illusions has one of the most stubborn heroines I’ve ever written. Illusions is on sale currently for 99 cents in celebration of book 2, Awakenings, releasing in late February.
