About Krissy V

I am a mother to two young children, who in turn keep me young. I live in Dublin, Ireland but, I’m originally from South Devon in the UK. I work full time in a pharmacy and write in all my spare time: in my lunch hour, when watching TV at night and anywhere. I have always been interested in reading from a young age and then 2 years ago I was given a kindle as a present and it was the best thing that happened to me. I was able to read lots of books every week and then I started to write reviews for all the books I read. I took this one step further and started my own facebook page – Sparkling Pink Bookshelf. I intended to upload all of my reviews for the books I read. This was purely for pleasure and then I answered a post on Facebook for someone to read for reviews and thought I had died and gone to heaven. I was reading about 7/8 books a week, the kindle made this achievable. I would read at any opportunity I could, even staying up til the small hours to finish a book. I loved it. Then one day I was asked to beta read a book – I loved this side of it, it was so exciting. I have worked with a number of indie authors and have remained loyal to a few select authors and I beta read all their After a year or more of doing this, I thought maybe I could write some of the stories that were in my head and I just decided to write and see what happened. I wrote about 70% of a story and then saw a post for the NaNoWriMo competition – to write 50,000 words in 30 days, I decided that this was a challenge I wanted to take and the Til Death Us Do Part series was born.

I am always thinking of situations that can be turned into a story and have started a few stories, which in turn will be completed and released to my readers. I love to hear what my readers have to say about my work and please find my links below.

Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy this series of books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Outback Heat Excerpt

Hannah didn’t know if he was being serious. She looked into those impossibly blue eyes and, hoping he wasn’t bullshitting her, she looked hard for any trace of sarcasm. She had been here before and wasn’t about to let herself get caught up in the moment again.

“Are you serious?” Hannah asked him the question she had just asked herself.

“Absolutely”, Nick replied.

“You can’t be serious! I am old enough to be your mother”,

“So, is that so important to you?”

“It’s…well, it’s difficult for me”, memories came flooding back and her eyes welled up.

“Someone young hurt you very badly, didn’t they? Well, just because one younger man did does not mean another will!”

“I know that but, at my age, I don’t want to go down that road again. It still hurts too much to want to try again”

“Look, I am not suggesting we start a relationship, I am just asking you to go out with me…you know…a date. I have no ulterior motives….yet”, again that smile that hinted at lots but promised nothing.

“What do you mean yet?”

“Well, I am a man and you are a woman…consenting adults and all that…I cannot say I will not want to make love to you at some point. However, let’s just take it one step at a time, shall we?”

Hannah was sure her face must be giving away the fact that she was hoping sooner rather than later. She turned to put her glass in the sink to cover her embarrassment. She felt him behind her before she heard him. He stood close enough for her to get an idea of what he had hidden in those workman’s shorts.

She had to catch her breath. He was hard, very hard. She could feel his breath on her neck. He reached up and gently moved her hair from the nape of her neck. He lowered his face and planted small kisses along her shoulder.

“Of course, we don’t have to wait…if you don’t want to” his voice was husky with desire.

She had no voice to answer so, turning to face him, she reached her hands up to hold his face and kissed him long, and hard and deep. He returned the kiss with equal passion. He explored her mouth with his tongue and she could feel her pussy become wet instantly. She reached down to find and touch that which she so badly wanted to have in her hand.

Once she had opened the zipper of his shorts and lowered them for better access she found much more than she had expected. He was huge, huge and hard as a rock. His sharp intake of breath told her that he was as aroused as she. He pulled back and loosened her grip and without a word lifted her until her legs were around his hips and stepping out of the shorts that had fallen to the floor he carried her across the kitchen and into the dining room to the table. He had lifted her as though she weighed nothing. His obvious rush to be inside her was a further turn on and she feared she would come before he was even near entering her.

He swept everything onto the floor and placed her buttocks on the edge of the table. Moving his body back slightly to give her hand access to his cock he took the opportunity to undo the buttons on her shirt. She could see the rampant desire in his face as he freed her breasts. They were large, lush and firm and he kneaded them with his hands. He pinched her hard little nipples and she groaned. When he bent his head to kiss them and trace the outline of her now hard nipples with his tongue she could have fainted with the pleasure of it.

Her hands had been busy with his enormous cock and were moving up and down the shaft. She was almost out of her mind with lust for this man. All she could think of was having him inside her. So, she tried to pull him to her but, he resisted. He reached down and ripped off her flimsy lace panties flinging the tattered remnants across the room. His fingers searched for and found her clit. He began to rub her as she rubbed him.

She could feel her orgasm building and did not want to come without him inside her. Grabbing his hand and pulling it away from her wet cunt she pulled him to her. Lifting her legs and wrapping them around his waist she used them to force him close to her. Then he reached down add gripped his own throbbing cock and guided himself into her.

As he slid into her she groaned loudly and leaned back. He went deep inside her, deeper than any man she had ever known. He filled her completely. He paused for a moment when he reached her deepest part then, slowly began to pull back. He did this over and over until she couldn’t stand it anymore. It was as though he knew exactly the moment to increase the speed.

In and out he plunged. Then he grasped and lifted her ass with both hands to get ever deeper as he plunged into her again. She opened her eyes to see that he was watching her. His eyes were now a deep smoky blue half shut with lust and pleasure. His mouth opened and his tongue licked his lower lip which he then began to bite. She intuited that he did this to keep from coming too soon. She sensed his need to let go and this brought her to the brink. He threw his head back and groaned with the strain of holding on. Just at that instant she felt her orgasm begin. A wave of heat washed over

her. Immense and raw, it engulfed her. She could feel his cock bucking and pulsating inside her as he came with her.

His plunged into her like a battering ram and she held onto the edge of the table and bucked like a bronco in response. She rode the tidal wave of release as it consumed her. Just when she thought she could not orgasm any harder, a final surge took her to a peak of pleasure unlike any she had ever experienced. She wanted to scream with the intensity of it but, she was left completely unable to do so. Then, breathless and exhausted, after that final onslaught she could do no more than let go and fall back onto the table top. He still held her ass in his hands but was standing perfectly still. Looking down at her and smiling. He had not made a sound.

She opened her eyes again. They were still sitting at the breakfast bar. He was still eating his sandwich. The whole fucking thing had been a fucking fantasy played out in her head. What the fuck was wrong with her. She got up and turned to the sink. Washing out her glass and rinsing her plate she tried to gather her thoughts and, hopefully, hide her feelings of embarrassment.

Author Bio

Tracy Gilmore has always had a love of writing and often wrote on whatever she could find but many of her stories were beginnings and not full stories. The concept of publishing a book was not something that she considered until there was so much of it to read. Through trial and error she came across a method to allow others to enjoy the reading of her work as much as she loves to write.
She graduated from high school and attended a Community College. She married her High School sweetheart and together they have two children. Often her husband helps her with many of her writings and her children are eager to listen to her many tales giving her the feedback that helps her to continue writing.
Inspiration for her writing comes in many forms and when it strikes she can be found typing or writing away for hours. When she is not writing she is a woman of very many talents. Baking, cooking, woodworking, crocheting, playing videogames, sewing and swimming.

Is running away ever the answer?

Tamara Harding left the UK to join family in Australia, but more importantly, to put ten thousand miles between her and her ex, Bradley Cox. She is soon drawn in to the small community of Brewer Creek where she becomes the coordinator for an old-fashioned Friendship Tree – a chart telling people who they can call on in times of trouble.

As she vows to start over, she meets Jake Manning – and life gets more complicated than she could ever have imagined. Jake is the direct competitor for the family business, and a man with a dark secret, and Tamara struggles to fight her attraction to him as she deals with secrets of her own and an ex who refuses to give up.

When danger descends on Brewer Creek in the form of Jake’s own past, Tamara soon realises the Friendship Tree does a lot more than organise fundraising events and working bees; it has the power to unite an entire town. But will Tamara see past the complications and allow herself a happy ending with Jake?

Or will she run away again?

Photography is another great passion of hers.
