A first kiss that changed everything.

Killian Kane.
He was the most feared guy in high-school.
Guarded. Angry. A fighter.
But when I caught him watching me with his captivating green eyes I saw something more. Something protective and kind. 


He warned me to stay away from him.

I did.
Until I didn’t and he kissed me. A knee weakening, body tingling kiss that left me breathless. 
And scared the hell out of me.


And then…
He warned me never to come near him again or next time he wouldn’t let me go.



That was eleven years ago.
We aren’t teenagers anymore. He has probably forgotten me. 
He’s a famous rock star now. I’m a dance instructor with a broken dream and desperate for a job.
So, when we cross paths again I don’t expect him to remember me.
He does.
And his warning eleven years ago? I’m about to find out exactly what that meant.

The thin sweet crunch mixing with the light, airy cream tickled my tongue.

Indulging was rare. Indulging in something like crème brûlée was heaven on a spoon.

But what made it even more like heaven was that Killian watched me with desire blazing in his eyes.

I swallowed, then with the tip of my tongue, I slid it over my lower lip, licking the remnants of cream.

“Fuck,” he growled.

I secretly smiled, heart pumping wildly.

I’d never been sexy or tried to be sexy, but I wanted to be with Killian. He made it easy for me to be brave.

Lights dim, candles flickering, the soft jazz music in the background, skin tingling from the sexy-as-hell man next to me, yeah, I was brave.

I dipped the spoon in again, but Killian’s fingers spanned my wrist, stopping me.

I met his eyes and without a word, but knowing exactly what he wanted by the silent exchange of his steady expression, I released the spoon to him.

His attention went to the dessert where he tapped the light thin sugar shell before breaking through and sinking into the airy lightness.

He lifted the overfilled spoon at the same time as his eyes.

I thought he was going to take a bite himself, but he held the spoon out to me. “Open.”

I nervously laughed, thinking he was kidding; it was a huge mouthful. “It’s too much.”

“I know. Open, Savvy,” he said.

Oh, God, my belly dropped and my sex clenched. I swallowed, licking my lips again.

“No,” he said with a firm voice. “I didn’t ask you to lick your lips. Although that is fuckin’ delectable as hell.” His tone lowered further. “I asked you to open your mouth.”

My eyes widened. Holy. Fuck. That was hot. Demanding and a little scary because him using that voice I’d pretty much do anything he asked.

I opened, and he slid the dessert into my mouth, and since there was so much, it hit the roof, sides, and back of my throat. He didn’t remove the spoon right away and watched as I struggled not to pull away.

When I was just about to say screw it, he said, “My cock will fill your mouth a hell of a lot more than this.”

I nearly choked. And I would’ve if he didn’t slowly remove the spoon, my lips dragging over the cool, smooth surface of the spoon to make certain I took the entire dessert.

His elbow rested on the table, spoon in his hand, eyes on mine as I swallowed little by little until it was gone. The entire time I thought about his cock.

Cody’s the sexy drummer extraordinaire of the hard rock band Oblivion.

Kitty’s the little sister of one of Cody’s band mates and she’s had a secret crush on him for years.

When the band are back home for a few days, the chemistry between them is both unexpected and undeniably off-the-charts.

She quickly realizes that the prospect of having what she’s always fantasized about is a very real possibility.

He quickly realizes that although he feels this mind-blowing attraction towards her, she’s the little sister of one of his band mates – he would get his ass kicked from here to hell if he ever laid a finger on her!

But can Kitty convince him? After all, no one else needs to know, a one-time hook-up might suit both of them…or could it ruin everything?

excerpt

What the hell happened to Nikki’s little sister?

We’re all sitting around, drinking our beers. I’m slouched down on one of the armchairs that I’ve claimed as my own. I’m still twirling my drumsticks and tapping away on my legs and the surrounding furniture. I’m a couple or three beers in when I hear the door to the suite open. I glance across to see Nikki, our rhythm guitarist and his girl Trixie strolling in jovially, Nikki’s arm is draped over her shoulder and she’s securely tucked into his side.

I lift my head and somberly greet them, “Hey.”

Nikki bobs his head in acknowledgement and Trixie waves her hand to say hi. I expect them to close the door but instead the most stunning girl on the fucking planet glides in behind them. She has smooth jet black hair that flows down her back and it’s so long it reaches her ass. She’s tall, probably almost as tall as me and her body rocks. She’s slim, but has nicely rounded hips and amazing tits. Her emerald green eyes are sparkling boldly as she scans the room confidently. I immediately jump up from my chair, drop my drumsticks to the floor and feel an undeniable rousing in my pants. Hell, maybe my day won’t be so bad after all. I feel better already!

The other guys all stand up too. Fuck off cock-suckers, she’s mine.

I take a step forward as the raven haired beauty suddenly shrieks in an oddly familiar voice, “Oh my god, hi guys, I’ve missed y’all so much!”

Fuck, fuck, fuck! My muddled brain suddenly clicks and makes the connection as I realize that the hottie that has my body vibrating like a god-damned amplifier is Kitty, Nikki’s little sister. Holy Crap! Somebody turns the music down and everyone starts walking towards Kitty. My heart is beating so damned loud that I’m sure the whole room can hear it.

What the hell happened to Nikki’s little sister? I remember her as being a sweet little girl that we used to tease and let hang around the band. She’d bring us beers and dote over all of us, but especially me. Sure, she’s always been pretty and downright cute, but I’ve never thought of her as the unmistakable sex kitten she is now. She’s definitely grown up and she’s a complete and utter babe. She’s the perfect embodiment of everything I find totally irresistible in a chick. I want!

Shit, maybe I’ve had more to drink than I thought, but I definitely shouldn’t be thinking this way about Nikki’s little sister and I don’t know how to handle these sudden irrefutable cravings. My hand twitches and strums anxiously on my leg as the adrenaline courses through me and makes me want to jump around like a fuckin’ crazy person.

COVER REVEAL

9781530853632

Book Title: It Took A Rumor
Author: Carter Ashby
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 19, 2016
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

book blurb

Thanks to a flamboyant, small-town gossip blogger, Ivy Turner’s lily-white reputation has just been unceremoniously muddied. Rumor has it Ivy has succumbed to temptation and slept with one of the Deathridge brothers. Sources can’t confirm which of the four, sexy cowboys she’s taken up with, but everyone in town is weighing in.

Ivy would gladly step forward and defend her good name, except that the rumor happens to be true. Perplexed that her little indiscretion has somehow made it into the public eye, Ivy sets out to find the rumor’s source. In the process, she becomes the unwitting keeper of all the Deathridge brothers’ rather formidable secrets.

Now, not only does she have to keep taking hits to her reputation to protect the brothers, but all these secrets and lies are keeping her from exploring her burgeoning feelings for one of them. But if Jake, Cody, Dallas, and Boone think that Ivy’s patience is limitless, they’re in for a shock. Because when Ivy breaks, she’s taking everyone down with her.

excerpt

Jake was all-out scowling, now. His big arms folded over his big chest. Not many men could look anything but menacing or childish when they were pouting…Jake was dead sexy. His dark eyes bored into hers. “It’s the dress,” he said.
“I beg your pardon?” She sat her coffee mug down. It rattled once on its saucer. She withdrew her hand and folded it in her lap.
“The dress. I know that dress. Intimately.”
“Listen, if you don’t want to talk business, then—”
“If you wanted to talk business you’d be in one of those prissy black skirts with your hair in a bun and your nails all manicured.”
“This is ridiculous.” She turned and started to scoot out of the booth before he could see the heat in her cheeks. But he propped his boot on the seat next to her, trapping her. “Move your big, dumb foot, Jake.”
“Know what I think?”
“Nope. And I don’t care.” Time to get the hell out of there and have a ritual burning of that bad luck dress.
“I think you’re angling for another off-the-books meeting down by the creek. That what you want, Ivy?”
“We agreed never to mention that.”
“You got a lot of nerve wearing that dress in here,” he said with a smirk. “You wanted me to mention it, admit it.”
“Let. Me. Go.”
“I’d be happy to meet you again, you know. Been thinking about asking you out.”
Ivy searched her mind for the low-blow and found it. “It’s not that I’m not interested, it’s just that I don’t think I can spare the two and a half minutes.”
He dropped his foot and his smirk, his eyes widening and the color draining from his face. “That was a mean thing to say, Ivy.”
She snorted as she stood and grabbed her cell phone. “Don’t get your ego in a twist, baby. At your age, there are worse problems to have.” With a wink, she turned and sashayed the hell out of there before he could think of a comeback.

Review/Blog Tour – Someone To Come Back To by Roisin Black

Someone To Come Back To ( Book One In The Omega Security Series) by Roisin Black 

Genre:Romance

Release Date: April 13, 2016

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions (http://bookenthusiastpromotions.com )

Tour Titles 5

What Worked For Me:

Someone To Come Back To was a beautiful love story between a bad-ass alpha male, John, and a stubborn and determined trauma surgeon, Maggie.  Both meet in the Adirondack Mountains when Maggie’s car breaks down while she is trying to make it to a cabin retreat where she can lick her wounds after rather tragic loss she witnessed while on the job.  John himself is seeking solitude to heal his soul-deep wounds after witnessing too much loss and destruction during his tours as a Navy Seal and by a past he just can’t quite come to terms with.  These two unlikely people find each other and are instantly attracted to the other but they fight this attraction, as best they can.  I loved these two individually and cheered with happiness when they finally got together.  They have smoldering hot passion and it was overwhelmingly heartwarming to witness these two battered souls finding their footing in a brand new relationship, a relationship that neither wanted nor ever expected.  As forces around them, from Mother Nature to meddling friends conspired to keep them together, John’s feelings about leaving Maggie when he deployed again ultimately force him to make a sacrifice that almost destroys both of them.   This book was a poignant reminder of how much our soldiers sacrifice to keep us safe and secure in our own worlds and the author brought out so many different emotions, from laughter to tears, it was virtually impossible to put the book down.    John was gorgeous and kind but displayed a few alpha-male moments that sent me into an all-over body tingle.  And seeing this man fall in love….it was awe-inspiring.  Maggie was courageous and strong and I cheered for her as she persevered  over and over, realizing mistakes she had made in life and her determination to keep moving on, pushing herself to be better and re-prioritize the way she is living.   The plot was strong and while it was a little slow moving in the beginning, once I was hooked there was no going back.  We are introduced to some secondary characters in this book  and I can’t wait to have their stories told. There is a little bit of action and suspense thrown in to get your heart racing even more.  I won’t even go into the surprising twist in the story that had my heart and brain exploding with happiness and euphoria!  Roisin Black is a new author for me but I look forward to reading more books by her.   She has a fresh and exciting voice and the remarkable ability to make you get lost in a story and feel every emotion her characters are experiencing.  Very Well Done!

What Didn’t Work For Me:

The plot was a little slow moving in the beginning.  It didn’t quite “catch” my attention solidly until about 8 chapters into the book.  However, once it did, I could not put it down!

Would I Recommend This Book:

Yes

Final Star Rating:

Tour Titles 3

Lieutenant John Sullivan of the U.S. Navy SEALs is used to control in all things and especially when it comes to love.  He has one rule.

  1. NOT. GO. THERE.

A recent mission gone wrong sees him seeking refuge at his cabin in the Adirondack wilderness, a place where he goes to deal with the things he has to do as part of his job.

Dr. Maggie O’Brien, Senior Trauma Surgeon at Hillview hospital, New York is dedicated to saving the lives of her patients, leaving her little time for anything resembling a personal life.

When it comes to love she has one belief.

  1. TIME. FOR. THAT.

A work related crisis sees her fleeing New York for the seclusion of the Adirondacks where her burnt-out body and weary soul crave solitude .

The last thing John Sullivan wants whilst he tries to deal with the emotional aftermath of his last mission is the distraction of a fiery red-head with curves that would tempt a saint.

The last thing Maggie O’Brien wants as she finally takes some time to examine her life is to deal with her body’s unwanted response to the bossy, over-bearing man who rescued  her in the woods and who drives her crazy in every way.

Soon, though, each realizes the other may not be what they want but what they need.

However,  ghosts from the past and shocking events from the present shake John to his core and lead him to make a fateful decision that may just cause him to lose the woman he loves, forever.

 

Tour Titles 1

The silence stretched between them like an elastic band about to snap and Maggie became increasingly uncomfortable.  She sipped at her wine and stared straight ahead, afraid to look in John’s direction.

“Maggie,” John said in a low voice, “have you ever been spanked?”

Wine sprayed from Maggie’s mouth as she sputtered in shock and her head swiveled around at such a speed there was a distinct danger it might detach from her neck.

“Whaaaaat?” she screeched, her eyes wide with astonishment.  Of all the things she had expected him to say, asking her if she’d ever been spanked certainly hadn’t been one of them.

“I asked you if you’d ever been spanked?” he repeated and from the look on his face and the tone of his voice he was deadly serious.

Maggie shook her head.

“No, I’ve never been spanked, why…. why would you ask such a thing?”

“Because I want to know if I’d be the first.”

Maggie looked at him like she was seeing him for the first time.

“Why would you want to spank me?” she asked.

John smiled.

“I didn’t say I wanted to but if you say sorry for what happened today one more time then I will go all Christian Grey on you and put you over my knee and spank you till you can’t remember the damned word.  I’ll admit, meeting someone hadn’t been part of my plan when I came up here but I’ll never regret meeting you Maggie and having this time with you, so please don’t apologize for any of it.”

It was Maggie’s turn to be speechless.

He reached out and took her hand in his.

“Now get over here and put that mouth of yours to some good use.”

Maggie put her glass down and lowered herself onto his lap.  He enfolded her in a rock-hard caress and she touched her lips off his in a whisper of a kiss.  Then she smudged her lips against his, taking his lower lip into her mouth, sucking it gentle and slow.  He groaned and she released it as she looked into his eyes and what she saw there in that unguarded moment caused her heart to soar, for there, in the dark amber of his eyes, were John’s feelings for her, raw and exposed.  The sight was mesmerizing.   

She expected him to try to look away or disentangle himself but he didn’t.  He remained underneath her, his face turned up to hers, all his emotions laid bare, his vulnerabilities unmasked and on show – unhidden and unprotected.  No words passed between them but so much was said.  Maggie swallowed past the lump in her throat and felt her heart swell in her chest as a host of butterflies danced across her tummy.  Without breaking eye contact she lowered her lips and kissed him again.

“Maggie, Jesus Maggie, what the fuck have you done to me,” John whispered as he finally closed his eyes and kissed her as if he wanted to possess her heart and soul.

Tour Titles 9

When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I was always a storyteller and as I grew up I realised I could marry my ability with the English language to all the stories roaming around my head and get them down on paper. At about ten years of age I was producing little homemade “books” and at fourteen I even “launched” a local magazine! I didn’t think of writing as a viable career until my mid-twenties when I became a journalist but that didn’t provide enough of an outlet for my imagination, so I eventually decided to focus on writing books.

What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?

My earliest memory is of reading Robin Hood.  I remember the description of him being dressed in “lincoln green” and wondering what sort of green that was!  I was most troubled by this.  I’d say I was about seven at the time.  The book was a present from Santa Claus and it was my first book with no pictures.  I can’t tell you how disgusted I was at Santa for bringing me a book with no pictures!

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

Traditionally I love crime fiction and I always thought that would be what I would write so no-one is more surprised than me that I have written nothing to do with crime fiction!  In recent years I have been reading a lot of romance and romantic suspense – which I really enjoy.  I also love the classics – anything by Jane Austen, The Bronte sisters, Thomas Hardy etc. I adore beautifully written books so will often have a look at the writers listed for big international literary prizes and check out the books. This is how I came to read Atonement by Ian McEwan, one of my favourite books.  I also love reading collections of poetry – Yeats, Kavanagh, Seamus Heaney.

What is your favourite book?

Book?  Do I have to pick just one?  Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy.  The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams.  The Hunger Games trilogy and The Twilight series.  Some recent favourites are Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan and Consolation & Conviction by Corinne Michaels.

You know I think we all have a favourite author. Who is your favourite author and why?

I love Ian McEwan for the richness of his prose and imagery.  Kaylea Cross for her tight plots, thorough research and great sex scenes.  Suzanne Collins for her brutal and unflinching subject matter.  Thomas Hardy for his beautiful imagery, George R.R. Martin for his incredible world-building and Stieg Larsson for Lisbeth Salander. Mia Sheridan, Corinne Michaels, Kristen Ashley and E.S. Carter for their wonderful characters, great storylines and depth of character.

If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?

I’d go back to London 1938 and tell, the then British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain just how Adolf Hitler and Nazism were going to pan out and that he needs to abandon appeasement and take action.  

When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?

Finding the time to write and being able to get into the right headspace is difficult – never the writing itself.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

Oh Yes!  I’m a dog nut!  I adore my dogs!  I’m still grieving over the loss of  Miss Billie – a lab collie cross and a huge character – loved by all who met her.  She died just before Christmas.  I still miss my old girl Zara, an amazing German Shepherd who was in my life for over ten years.  

What is your “to die for”, favorite food/foods to eat?

Oh this is easy! Fresh Atlantic lobster plucked from the pristine waters of the west of Ireland, served with lemon or garlic butter.  New potatoes freshly dug from my dad’s garden and his sweet carrots and my mother’s scones and apple pies are unbeatable.

Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?

Not to be all “famous sport’s brand” about this but just do it!  I’d also say don’t waste your precious time with traditional / legacy publishers.  Indie publishing is the way to go – if you are a success then the legacy publishers will come looking for you and that’s the way to have them.

5 Star Review/Blog Tour – Coming Home by Jourdyn Kelly

 

Tour Titles 5

What Worked For Me:

Warning…..be prepared to fall in love over and over again!

I have never read anything by Jourdyn Kelly, but after reading Coming Home, I know I will read more of her in the future.  Coming Home is a beautiful and haunting romance about two people who find love when neither of them were looking for it.  Blaise and Greyson stumble upon each other quite by accident.  He parks in her designated parking space and she loses her mind over it, and eventually, him.  Their first meeting is funny and poetic.  And it’s during that very first meeting that you begin to fall in love with them!  Blaise, our heroine, is amazing.  I love the simplicity of her life and how she strives to keep everything unpleasant out of it.  She very much knows what she wants and needs and her story is so heartbreaking, I couldn’t help but shed tears when I learned all she had been through. She doesn’t let anyone walk all over her and she guards her personal space and life with an iron fist.  She’s not afraid to stand up for what she believes in and is most definitely no doormat.  She was extremely fun to read and she has now become one of my all-time favorite heroines.  Her hero….Greyson.  WOW!  There are absolutely not enough words in the human language to do him justice.  He is alpha male with a sweet side who is willing to do just about anything to get Blaise to agree to a date.  He woos her and in turn, wooed me as a reader.  He is facing many obstacles of his own, pressures from his family and friends and must make a choice in choosing between the woman who will be the love of his life or his sense of duty to the obligations of a family hell bent on its own path to keep the family name alive no matter the costs.  Together, Blaise and Greyson find they have chemistry that they can’t deny and the sparks that fly between them simply by being in the same room together will singe the edges of your e-reader.  I love how Greyson pursues Blaise, giving her the time she needs without pushing her past her boundaries and even more I loved how relentless he was, never giving up in his quest to win the heart of Blaise.  The sex was hot and erotic with just the right amount of sweetness.  There are evil parents in this book, and even more evil relatives and more than a few surprising twists you absolutely do not see coming!  The plot was rich and developed and I was never once bored.  We are introduced to a few secondary characters that I can’t wait to see how their stories unfold.  I found I couldn’t read this book fast enough and was equally mad that I finished so quickly.  I never wanted the story to end!  This book is now one of my all-time favorite books and I look forward to the next book in this series!

 What Didn’t Work For Me:

The story was utter perfection!

Would I Recommend This Book:

Yes

Final Star Rating:

If Greyson had ever been nervous standing in front of a woman’s door before, he didn’t remember. But here and now, in front of Blaise’s, he could swear his palms were sweaty. I should have brought flowers, he thought. Then immediately rejected the idea. Flowers for the flower shop owner. Stupid idea. Besides, he has seen Blaise’s talent. Flowers from anywhere else would just be inferior. And, it was probably in bad taste to buy from a competitor. Greyson certainly didn’t need more reasons for Blaise to reject him.

Grateful that he had taken the time to change into well-worn jeans and a black t-shirt—may as well be comfortable while begging—he knocked on the door.

The door slid open. “Honey, I told you I was fine and you didn’t have to…”

Greyson was struck dumb by the sight before him. Mere hours before, Blaise was the epitome of grace and class. The gown she wore accentuated everything about Blaise that Greyson found sexy. But now. Damn. Her hair was piled on the top of her head in a messy bun, her face was clean of any cosmetics and she wore a men’s white button up shirt and white fluffy socks. Whether she had on anything under that shirt, Greyson didn’t know, but he ached to find out. To him, Blaise was sexier right at this moment than he had ever seen her.

“Hi.”

“What?” She frowned, and waved a spoon in his direction. He hadn’t noticed the carton of ice cream until then. “What are you doing here? How did you know where I live?”

“I’m here because you wouldn’t listen to me before. I need to explain.”

“You need to go home to your fiancée, Mr. Steele.”

“Goddamn it, Blaise. She’s not my fucking fiancée. That’s what I’m trying to tell you.”

Blaise raised an eyebrow, and Greyson wondered if she was aware of just how beautiful she looked right now.

“The ring and the woman say something different,” she shot back. “And, you certainly didn’t deny it at that moment. If you just broke up with her and came here, that’s even lower, Mr. Steele.”

Greyson let out a frustrated growl, and scrubbed his hands over his face. “May I come in?” he asked through gritted teeth.

“No.”

“Blaise.” The tone of his voice was one he used when he wanted to intimidate those around him to do as he demanded. He shouldn’t have been surprised when it didn’t even faze her.

“Do not ‘Blaise’ me. And, don’t you dare use that tone with me. I am not one of your employees, or lackeys or whatever. You have something to say, say it right here.” She leaned against the door jamb, crossing her ankles, and waited. Digging the spoon into the carton, Blaise looked up at him. “And, don’t think I don’t realize you totally skipped over my question of how you found out where I live.”

He watched her wrap her lips around the spoon. Just as he had when he sat at dinner with her a few nights ago, he found watching her eat completely erotic. And, as much as her stubbornness irked him, he couldn’t help but feel an equal—or more—amount of respect for her.

“Fine,” he sighed. If he had to do this out in the hallway, so be it. “I am not engaged. That’s the most important thing I need you to know.” He held up a hand when she opened her mouth. “If you’re going to make me talk out here, the least you can do is hear me out.”

Her jaw tightened with annoyance, but she nodded before taking another bite of what he could now see was Ben & Jerry’s Coffee, Coffee flavor.

“I’m not engaged,” he repeated. “I’ve never been engaged, and I certainly would never even contemplate marrying Pricilla. She surprised the shit out of me with the ring, as well, which is why I didn’t say anything. It’s my mother’s ring, but I didn’t give it to her. Fuck, I wouldn’t give that hideous thing to anyone.” He took a deep breath. “I was there with Pricilla because my mother asked me to escort her. ‘Keeping up appearances’, she calls it. Padding her fucking portfolio by trying to merge the families is what it really is. I’ve already resigned myself to taking over the family business. I refuse to give her this. Tonight was a mistake. I should never have agreed to it.” He braved a step closer to her. “I never wanted to hurt you, or make you think I’m that kind of bastard.”

I’ve been in Houston, Texas, writing novels and designing websites since 2009. Moving here was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, because I’ve been able to live wonderfully, and write my heart out. I’ve always enjoyed the arts in one form or another. Music sets the mood, reading stimulates my brain, and writing allows me to utilize my imagination in any way I want. I’ve been writing stories since I was a teen, and figured out writing was my passion when I finished my first novel, Something About Eve.

I love being captivated by books that lead me into different, exotic places, and through impossible scenarios. I love being able to become someone else for a time. Reading has always inspired me to bring my own characters out to play. My hope is that my writing will inspire others, or at the least, give them a way to escape from everyday life for a little while.

As web designer, etc. for singer/actress Deborah Gibson, I’ve had the opportunity to be involved in wonderful experiences, travel around the country and meet exciting people. Just recently, I was able to travel to Berlin, and meet some fantastic people. It’s experiences like this, I believe, that help me create unique, and (hopefully) lovable characters.

I will be continuing the LA Lovers series with Ellie’s book next. Each book will be a stand-alone, but look for Eve, Lainey, and Adam to show up here and there. I truly hope you enjoyed Blaise and Greyson. You’ll be able to see more of them in the next book!

I spend my time writing, designing websites and caring for what is really a zoo with 3 dogs, 2 cats, a bearded dragon, 2 frogs and 2 turtles. In the recent years, I’ve changed my lifestyle to include working out and eating right. I now compete in triathlons, have run two half-marathons, and love yoga.

I love bringing my characters out for everyone to meet. My goal is to keep writing in many different genres, as I feel there shouldn’t be anything limiting writers.
