Free Short Stories

To read or not to read…that is a silly question!  I’ve written three (3) short stories that benefited charities and I’m now offering them to you to read for free!  They may get their own novella or fully story in the future, but in the meantime, why not share the fun?  Meet Harper in One Kiss, Delilah in Wild Pumpkin, and Sage from Hollywood.

Harper just went through a bad breakup.  Luckily, she has great friends who help her get over it on New Year’s Eve!  Harper is the younger sister of Simone from my full-length, standalone holiday rom-com Snowed In With Him.

Officer Sage McCullin has transferred to the East Coast from California and finds herself in an unusual situation.

Is there a chance for opposites to attract when this tattooed beauty meets a guy who seems to have everything put together in his life?  How does Delilah choose to handle the situtation presented to her?  Wild Pumpking is being developed into a full-length, standalone novel.

Snowed In With Him

Steamy, winter holidays Romance Standalone Novel

Synopsis:

Another night out on the town in New York City with her roommate, what could go wrong for Simone? Waking up in a strange bed, stranding her with the bar’s known player after a major snowstorm, would do it. What’s a girl to do when they’re snowed in for several days? What’s a girl to do when she starts falling for the player? What should Simone do when she’s unsure of which girl she is of the many romance stories she narrates for a living? Is she the girl being played before the guy finds his true love? Or, is Simone the girl who gets the guy? “I feel like I’m in the middle of my own twisted, real-life romance story but I’m too scared to know the outcome.  Which girl am I?  Am I the girl being played before he finds his true love?  Or, am I the girl who gets the guy?” (Note: Simone is the older sister of Harper from my short story One Kiss that was featured in the Because Beards anthology.)

Snowed In With Him is a steamy, winter romance, and adult romance with sex novel for readers 18+ years of age by Best-Selling Author Martha Sweeney.

DONT FORGET TO ENTER!!! With the official release of Breathe Out, I’m having an official Goodreads.com Giveaway. September 15, 2015 through October 15, 2015 you can enter (see link below) to WIN an AUTOGRAPHED copy of Breathe Out. Plus, you’ll also receive an AUTOGRAPHED copy of Breathe In. That’s right. You’ll be getting both book #1 and book #2 of the Just Breathe series. The giveaway is open to everyone in the US, GB, CA and AU.

Synopsis of the series:

Breathe In is about a twenty-four-year-old woman named Emma Peterson who has made sure to have as much control over her life as she can since the death of her parents that occurred when she was sixteen.  A fear of loss dominates Emma’s mindset when it comes to relationships of all types, especially when it comes to men and dating.  Emma doesn’t date.  Rather, she uses men for sex.

She’s created eight golden rules to keep herself at a distance from men, particularly the men she sleeps with; 1. no dating or going out on dates, 2. never let them know where she lives, 3. never pick up a guy in a particular social setting that she may frequently attend or sleep with a man whom she may have the chance of running into on a regular basis, 4. never have a guy over to her apartment for any reason (her gay best friends are the only exceptions), 5. always end things before the guy starts to want more, 6. always use protection, 7. never sleep over at their place after sex and 8. always have more than one exit strategy.

When Emma’s best friend, Maggie, becomes involved with a new boyfriend, Emma’s world changes radically.  Maggie’s relationship with Henry moves very quickly; faster than any of her previous relations and Emma is not excited about the newcomers to the group.  On top of that, Henry’s best friend, Joe Covelli, is the first man Emma has ever met who makes her call her own rules into question.

Aside from the introduction of Joe Covelli to Emma’s life and the temptation of breaking her rules, Emma also finds herself in a whirlwind of self-discovery.  Her past creeps back into her controlled life, forcing her to consider her fear of loss and potential acceptance of love and true happiness.
