THE BOOKS

 

I write books featuring strong, yet troubled, female characters.  I started off writing Paranormal Romance and have now branched out into the slightly steamier world of the Contemporary Romance genre. 

Notable traits in my writings: always gay-friendly, extremely flawed characters, empowered females and lots and lots of pop-culture, T.V. and film references!

eBooks

 

There are several options when it comes to reading e-books. I have recently made SOME of my books exclusive to Amazon - but this does not mean you cannot access them if you don't own a Kindle.

Once you've downloaded the FREE Kindle app, you can purchase the book from Amazon and it will automatically be sent to your device/app.

 

2. If you already own another type of ereader (Nook, Kobo etc) - here is what you can do:
a) Purchase the ebook from Amazon.

Heavy

(A New Adult, Contemporary Romance))

When hot shot tattoo artist, Thatch Reston, goes to do a private ink job at a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, he never expected to meet the girl of his dreams.

 

And he didn't.

 

Instead, he met California Huntington. According to the tabloid press, she's a self-absorbed, over-privileged socialite with a drug and alcohol problem.  In other words, she's everything Thatch is NOT looking for in a potential soul mate.  If he were looking for one at all, that is.

 

California has a secret she's ashamed of.  She perpetuates the media image of party-girl-gone-wild, only because it covers the real and ugly truth.  Yes, she abuses drugs, but it's less addiction and more a side-effect of what her real issue is.  Cali is bulimic, and has been since she was fifteen.  In her world, drugs and alcohol are glamorous, while an eating disorder is something sordid and dirty and should never be discussed in public.   She realizes she needs to seek help before she falls deeper into that rock bottom she's hovering on the edge of.

 

It takes one intense night with Thatch to change her life forever. If only she could convince him that, despite her past, she's worth taking a chance on.

 

NOTE: At the moment HEAVY is in the Amazon KDP Program, which means the book will only be available from Amazon for the timebeing.  Nook, iPad users etc. should email me a "Proof of Purchase" from Amazon, and I will send you the correct file for your device.  Thanks!

 

THE PIERCED SERIES

Pierced

(Pierced Series, Book 1)

 

Imagine the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets Betty Crocker.

 

That’s Pierce in a nutshell.

 

Pierce has been on the run for two years from the man who held her captive in a vampire compound for almost a decade. Life on the run would be a lot simpler if she didn’t suffer from several social disorders and ‘quirks,’ have a ten-year-old brat in tow, as well as have two characters from a 1945 classic film living in her head and guiding her at every turn.

 

Escaped

(Pierced Series - Book 2 - a novella)

Oscar Alvarez de Sevilla was living the American dream. Attending a prestigious law school in New York City and madly in love with the girl downstairs, who he was pretty much going to marry as soon as he graduated. Everything was going as planned and life was good.

Twelve years later he is the centerpiece in a daring plan to help two young girls escape from the ruthless psychopath who has had them locked up for most of their lives. The same man for whom Oscar has been working for several years now.

His actions will guarantee he will be dead in less than a year, regardless of whether or not he and the girls are recaptured.

How did things go so wrong?

Pinked

(Pierced Series - Book 3)

 

Negotiating the relentless pull of the mate bond is tough.

Especially when one of them is still traumatized by memories of childhood sexual abuse and the other point blank refuses to acknowledge (out loud at least) that there is a mate bond at all.

While Pierce tries to deal with the aftereffects of her new and “unpierced” self, Lucas relives the week leading up to that fateful night when he was forced into doing the one thing he vowed he never would – inflict his disease on another human being.

As if he didn’t hate himself enough already.

 

As she attempts to come to terms with the new her – the Pierce that is stronger, faster and less reliant on her former “dependencies” – she begins to settle into an unfamiliar, yet longed for, “normal” life with her newfound circle of family and friends. Pierce is finally able to do what her maker never could – embrace, accept and thrive from what she has become.

 

With Pierce’s not-so-subtle help, Lucas comes face to face with the fact that maybe it’s time for him to start coming to terms with this “affliction” too.

But it is not going to be easy.

Especially when they come into contact with another pack for the first time.

Perfect

(Pierced Series - Book 4)

“Can’t live with him, can’t live without him.”

Never has this expression seemed more true to Pierce as she deals with the aftermath of her trauma in Salt Lake City.

 

Pierce and Lucas can’t seem to stay apart from each other for very long without the night panics happening again – but being together is almost as torturous. Will her past ever allow her to be intimate with him? Can she afford to let her guard down and allow herself to be happy? She’s still suffering from the post-traumatic stress of what happened to her the last time she did that.

 

On the plus side, their little town of Nowhere is exceeding even the most conservative of expectations and seems to be becoming just the opposite. So much so, that it has appeared on the radar of the wolf community. Or at least Pierce’s presence has.

 

Suddenly it seems like Nowhere is THE place to be these days…

 

Napoleon

(Pierced Series - Book 5 - a stand-alone novella and NA, M/M Romance)

Napoleon Charming-Balak has been crushing on the “exchange student” staying with him for the last six months. The object of his crush: Sixten Dahl, a straight boy that seems to get his kicks from flirting with, then torturing, Napoleon in the cruelest of ways. Is it any wonder Nap, and his best friend Moused, are high-tailing it to New York City as fast as they possibly can?

 

If there’s one thing Napoleon is hoping for, it’s that life in the Big Apple will be exactly what his self-esteem needs to get over the Swedish tease that has been tormenting him all summer long.

 

If he could only stop thinking about Sixten long enough to enjoy it.
