Nick quickly took advantage, pressing his hand deeper as he raised her up, her ass on his forearm. Angelina squirmed, rubbing against him. Nick bent and sucked a nipple into his mouth, teasing it through the silk. He slid a finger in and out of her heat, lightly rubbing her clit with his thumb. Angelina moaned and tightened around his finger. Pressing her close against him, Nick increased his thrusts. Nick bit her nipple and was rewarded with a cry as Angelina clamped down, drenching his hand as she came apart in his arms.
She placed her head against his shoulder, shivers running through her while her arms and legs tightened around him. Nick pulled his hand free from her warmth and licked his fingers clean, making smacking noises as he did.
“Pig.” It was so low Nick barely heard the comment. Nick chuckled as Angelina giggled in his arms.
“Did you want another glass of champagne?” Angelina shook her head and squirmed against him. Nick squeezed her to him, enjoying the feel of her, despite the tightness in his groin. “Are you ready for dinner? Or shall we just head straight to dessert?”

2015 Author Questionnaire
Who designed the covers? Dawne Dominique is the cover artist. She does a wonderful job.
Do you read your reviews? Do you respond to them, good or bad? Do you have any advice on how to deal with the bad?
I read all of my reviews. I’ll click like but I never respond to bad reviews. To be honest they probably say something I thought after the book was published. I usually thank the reviewer if I sent the book to them for review, regardless of how they rated it. It is after all, their opinion.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
I didn’t write it for more than enjoyment, but I wanted to show the plight of veteran’s. Not every wound it visible and not every disability will keep you from finding love.
Can you share what your current are projects?
I’m editing Stealing Hope A Dragon’s Fated Heart due out in August. I’ve recently submitted a novella for an anthology. It is another military romance entitled Love Me Forever. I’m on the last chapter of A Dragon’s Treasure and hope to submit it shortly.
What books have most influenced your life most?
Probably the Dragons of Pern books by Anne McCaffrey. She sparked my love of dragons.
Do you ever experience writer's block?
Unfortunately! I find that exercise is the best way for me to break it. Too bad I don’t do it enough, LOL.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
TS Joyce. I love her bear books, lol. Tamara Hoffa, she also has a new bear shifter series. Ashley Hunter, Terry Bolryder. Umm, I’ve been on a bear shifter kick lately! They all are entertaining so I’ve been following their series.
While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters?
No, not in any of my current books. I am writing one where a lot of the emotions and situations are from my life. We’ll see if I ever get that one finished and published.
What are your expectations for the book?
I hope it does well. Breaking the top 100 in Amazon of course! What writer doesn’t want that? Or at least to have more people reading it.
Do you write an outline before every book you write?
No. It’s hit or miss. I’m trying to better at outlining my books but so far I haven’t. I do more so for my full length novels. It helps to keep me on track if I get stuck.
Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.
Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.
An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.
A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of twenty five years along the way for her own romance. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.Fun Facts: The name was changed less than two weeks before publication! A Saint's Salvation was inspired by my son's tattoo His tattoo says 'St. Nicholas' – the original name of my book A Saint's Salvation took me eight months to write! The name of A Saint's Salvation was my editor's suggestion The teasers were made from photos from Afghanistan The Marine in the teasers is my son He only gave me permission to use his photo because he loves me He only gave me permission if I cut off his head! LOL
