The moment they crossed the threshold, Preston took Lee Ann into his arms. He caressed her cheek with his fingertips, trailing down the curve of her neck, sending shivers of delight racing through her body.
She sighed with pleasure, and the sweet sound of it deepened Prestonâs arousal. Lee Ann wrapped her arms around his neck as the desire to give herself totally to him pounded in her veins.
âLetâs go upstairs,â he breathed in her ear.
âLead the way,â she whispered seductively.
He kissed her once more, twirling his tongue against hers, before they mounted the stairs together. When they reached the top, he opened his bedroom door and swept her up into his arms. He crossed the room and eased them both down onto the bed.
âI dreamed about this last night,â she said softly.
âNow we can make it real,â he said, before taking her lips with his own in a long, searing kiss.

Welcome to the exciting world of my brand-new family miniseries, the Lawsons of Louisiana. Following the successâthanks to youâof my Pause for Men and The Ladies Cartel miniseries, I began to think about what direction my next work would take. Iâd been asked and had thought about doing a family series for a while and finally the opportunity presented itself. The idea of bringing to the page a dynamic, powerful, sexy, politically connected family began to take shape. And what better time than now to showcase the beauty and power of a black political family?
The first character that came to me full-blown was Rafe Lawson. OMG! I had a thing for him before he was even fully formed. Then there are his twin sisters, Dominique and Desireeâidentical in looks but as different as apples and oranges. Justin is the youngest, dashing brother who you will see come into his own over the course of the series.
To kick things off is the eldest sister, Lee Ann. When she meets Jr. Senator Preston Graham, thereâs no telling what will happen between them, save for a little bit of scandal and a whole lot of passion.
Iâm so excited about the Lawsons and I hope you will enjoy each and every one of their stories, beginning with Spend My Life with You.
Iâd love to hear from you. Send your thoughts to [email protected] and be sure to tell a friend!
Until next time,

Lee Ann Lawson leaned toward her dressing table mirror and fastened the diamond studs into her ears, just as the booming voice of her father called out to her from the other side of the Louisiana mansion.
âComing!â she called back, tightening the belt of her white silk robe around her slim waist and wondering as she padded barefoot along the winding hallway what it was that he couldnât find. She smiled inwardly and prepared herself to fuss over her daddy for the next few minutes. She was stopped halfway when one of her twin sisters, Dominique, leaped out from her bedroom door, hands planted boldly on her round hips.
âSis, would you please tell my darling dull twin that this dress does not show too much cleavage!â She flashed a scowling look at her mirror image, who sat demurely on a cushioned foot stool.
Lee Ann looked Dominique up and down. Of the two, Dominique was always the flamboyant one, ready at the drop of a hat to be the center of attention. And her dress definitely did that. Cut in the front to nearly her navel, the sparkling silver floor-length gown barely held her size Cs in place.
âYou sure your dolls arenât going to pop out and introduce themselves at the party?â Lee Ann asked, only half in jest.
Desiree covered her mouth and laughed. âTold you, Dom. And itâs the same thing Mama would have said.â
Dominique pouted. âI have a cover-up.â
âBe sure you have it with you,â she warned. She peeked around Dominique. âYou look beautiful, Desi. And you, too, Dom,â she said with a big-sister wink.
âLee Ann!â Branford bellowed.
The sisters exchanged a knowing look as Lee Ann hurried down the hallway. The voices of her brothers Rafe and Justin floated to her from the main room below. She couldnât wait to see her handsome brothers all decked out. She tapped on her fatherâs door.
