Huge update!

I meant to get this update posted before the Romance Novel Convention I recently attended, but with the time crunch and trying to get I'll Say Anything published, I didn't have a second to spare. As most of you know, I've started a new series with a more Contemporary Romance/New Adult feel than the Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense I've been publishing for the past several years. The I'll Say Anything stories have been burning a hole in the back of my mind for at least twelve months, but I've put it off to finish the Royals and write the Elite. There are two more Jasper and Finley books planned, which should lead into another new series that I hope will be as big as the Royals.

Having said that, I've received a ton of mail about the Latvala series and Sander in particular. Because I care about what the readers want, and because there is so much interest, I've decided to write another Sander story. There might be just one book, there might be more. I haven't gotten that far yet. I also don't have a release date or even a projection, since I'll be staggering book launches between Sander and the I'll Say Anything series. You know me though. Once I start something, I like to finish it sooner than later. :)

eARC: I'll be looking for 15-20 readers willing to read Advance Reader Copies (digital) and leave reviews this time around for both the second Jasper and Finley story (which I've already started writing) and Sander's book. You can opt to do both, or one or the other. You'll receive an electronic mobi or epub file from me in exchange for leaving honest reviews on Amazon et al once the book goes live. If you're interested, drop me an email at with a subject line of: ARC Reader.  Thanks!

GIVEAWAYS! Stay tuned! I've got some big giveaways coming up. First announcement is tomorrow!

All the best,

Surprise! New book release!

I've been hard at work on my new series, and book 1 is now live on Amazon. It should be live on all other sites (except iTunes, which is having upload problems again) any time. I'll post links when they become available.  Look for the print copies shortly!

I'll Say Anything - Amazon

I'll Say Anything - Kobo

I'll Say Anything - Barnes and Noble


Finley Carson's world runs exactly the way she wants it to. Rebellious and independent, she takes up residence with her cohort and best friend, Jasper Lowe, in none other than Sin City itself—Las Vegas, Nevada. She wasn't interested in the ritz and glamour, not this tomboy in dusty jeans and greasy tee shirts; Finley had one goal: to save enough money to open a shop with Jasper and become her own boss.

An unexpected dare lands Finley at a posh charity event, where she's slated to play companion to an unknown gentleman. The events that unfold shake up Finley's neat and tidy existence, throwing everything she thought she knew into a tailspin. Not only was Ramsey Cassano completely wrong for her on all levels, she couldn't shake her attraction no matter how hard she tried. Forced to come to terms with her own desires and beliefs, she struggles through some of life's hardest lessons—and makes a shocking discovery that simply changes everything.

Happy reading!

Leander's book up for pre-order on Amazon

Leander's book is up for pre-order on Amazon! Here's the link:

The Royal Elite: Leander (Amazon)

B&N doesn't offer this option, so it won't be up for pre-order there. The iTunes uploader is still broken/glitchy, so I can't say for sure exactly when the books will be uploaded there. I'm looking for a workaround.

Happy Friday!

The Royal Elite: Chayton, now live on Amazon!

Chayton's book is now live on Amazon!  Soon to be up at B&N, Kobo and hopefully iTunes (their uploader is having issues).  Hope you all enjoy!

The Royal Elite: Chayton (Amazon)


The Royal Elite

A band of brothers from different nations, different cultures, all bound by one covenant: to protect their own. Secretive, cunning and deadly, they fight for the innocent who have become targets in a society obsessed with power, money and greed. It isn't just a moral code that drives the brothers, but the thrill of danger they can't find anywhere else.

Meet the men who risk everything, even their own lives, and the women who capture their hearts.

* * *

During a covert operation in Singapore, Chayton Black finds himself the object of attack from a most unlikely source: a hotel maid named Penelope who will do anything to free herself from his unexpected presence. A test of wills ensues and when the truth comes out about Penelope's past, Chayton makes a startling offer to help free her from the unwanted advances of a man she clearly fears. What he doesn't expect is the fire and chemistry they generate between them, making a complicated mess of their lives.

Kate Fairchild, full of secrets and subterfuge, is on the run from Anton Bertini, the man who insists on dragging her into a marriage she doesn't want. Blindsided by Chayton's extraordinary offer of help, she does the unthinkable and accepts. When Anton closes in, threatening Chayton's life, Kate makes a sacrifice of her own.

Unfortunately, the sacrifice comes too little, too late, and she jeopardizes the trust of a man she's grown to love.

Teaser from Chayton's upcoming book!

Here's a teaser from Chayton's book, presented with the usual disclaimers:  no editing has been done, so overlook any glitches or errors.  :)

* * *

What if I told you that I had no idea who Anton Bertini is, and that I had nothing to do with...whatever you're involved in? What if I could prove it?”
Surprised, Kate frowned. He looked and sounded quite sincere. Could she have the wrong person? Had she been totally mistaken? Then why had he crept through the suite and how had he known just where to find her?
How are you going to prove it?”
Have you ever heard of Luxe Resorts?”
She scoffed and nearly announced she was a member. The exclusive Resorts, spanning the globe, were one of her favorite getaways. “Of course I've heard of them. Everyone on God's green earth has.”
His mouth tipped into a tight smile. “Who owns and operates them?”
Are you ever going to get to the point?” she asked with no small amount of irritation.
Just answer the question.”
The Black family.”
That's right. Will you hold still for a moment if I release you?”
Yes.” Kate would do anything to put some space between them.
He hesitated, searching her eyes again. Then he released her hands but didn't move his body. Reaching into a back pocket, he withdrew a leather wallet and produced a Montana driver's license with his picture clearly on the front. Along with his name.
Chayton Black.
You don't expect me to believe you're related to the Black family that owns the Luxe Resorts, do you?” Being a member, Kate thought she recalled literature somewhere that had Chayton's name on it. A niggling feeling remained, even after he slid the identification away and re-pocketed the wallet. Perhaps she'd heard it in the elite circles she frequented right up until her untimely disappearance from society.
We can even look it up on the internet. Yes, I'm one of the heirs to the empire. Which means you should realize that I can't be whoever you think I am, and if I step away, you won't take a swing or stab me with your mascara wand.”
That's brilliant. Provoke me while I'm angry, and there's no telling what I might do.” Bristling from the entire confrontation, Kate stared at Chayton, tempted to push against his chest with her hands. He stood somewhere just over six-feet, and though lean, seemed immovable unless he wanted to move.
Like an annoyed little badger, hm? Are you going to grace me with your name in return, or are you going to force me to backtrack using Anton Bertini?” he asked.
You wouldn't dare.” Kate didn't want him doing any such thing.
Not only would I dare, I plan on it. Save us both the time and energy.”
My name, obviously, is Penelope.” She flicked the name tag on the uniform.
Penelope what?”

Unprepared to come up with a last name, she floundered. Then said, “Penelope Smith.”

I'll announce a release date soon!

Ahsan's book is now live on Amazon, B&N and iTunes!

The second book in the Royal Elite series is now live on Amazon!  Soon to be live at all the other sites (B&N, iTUnes, Kobo).  Really excited to have this book published.  :)

The Royal Elite: Ahsan (Amazon)

The Royal Elite: Ahsan (B&N)

Ahsan on iTunes

Here's the description:

Sheikh Ahsan Afshar is a rogue of the highest order, prone to scandal, seduction and womanizing. He's a devilish yet complicated creature with an over-sized ego and more arrogance than he knows what to do with. When fate brings him face to face with Miss Sessily Pavel, he finds himself issuing a challenge that brings her into his home—and into his life.

Sessily Pavel has a secret. A secret involving Sheikh Ahsan Afshar. One so explosive it could endanger her life. Challenged to a race, she enters Ahsan's world, only to discover he's not the man she thought he was. Fighting off red-hot chemistry and undeniable attraction, she sets herself on task—one that threatens to unravel her secrets and expose her for the liar she is. The only question is whether he'll ever forgive her, and whether she can forgive herself.

Happy Valentine's Day!
