HOT MESS

My life is a hot mess.

Single, working, and raising two daughters, it’s a miracle I get us up, dressed, and fed every morning. Forget about dating—nobody’s got time for that. Even if love hadn’t left me jaded, I’m not settling for anything less than perfect this time around. 

Lucky for me, the perfect man just happens to work in my office. But there’s just one small problem: he’s my boss, and is totally off limits. But hey, if it’s meant to be, it’ll find a way, right?

Then a night out with friends turns into a night in with the walking-talking bad boy cliche of a bartender. It’s just one night. No harm, no foul, right? Except when the hot bartender turns out to be my boss’s trouble-making brother. And he wants more than just one night with me. The more I resist the spark between us, the more I find myself wanting him too. Which puts me in the middle of what could be the biggest sibling rivalry of the century.

Life is messy. 

And love? 

Well, love is even messier.


FIRST COMES LOVE, an Amazon Top 20 bestseller!

First comes love. 
Then comes marriage. 
Then comes a— 

Hold up. You’re joking right? As if life works off a neat little list like that, moving down, checking things off before jumping to the next task. We’re not married. We’re not lovers. Hell, we’re hardly even friends. Noah Wilson isn’t exactly “life partner” material, and he sure as hell isn’t “father material”. He’s my older brother’s best friend, and has been off limits, sworn off, locked in the highest tower and out of reach since we met over ten years ago. With his devilish good looks, tattoos, motorcycle, and trail of broken hearts and tears, I’ve had good reason to stay away from the bad boy my mother warned me about. 

Until one night. One stupid, regrettable night that changed both of our lives forever. And now I only have nine months to decide our fate, to see if Noah’s rebel heart is capable of anything more than a one night stand. 

This isn’t a love story. This is a life story. And life doesn’t go according to plan.


THEN COMES MARRIAGE

Fall in love—check. 
Get engaged and plan a perfect wedding—check and check. 
Find my fiancé with another woman—I never thought I’d check that off the list, yet here I am, putting a giant “X” in that box just months before we take our sacred vows. 

Along with recovering from a broken heart, I’m left with the mess of canceling all things wedding. The venue gave me the deposit back. The florist canceled my order with no charge. The resort we booked for the honeymoon—yeah, they’re not giving me a dime. But I’ll be damned if I throw away a chance to spend two weeks in a tropical paradise, lounging on the beach with a drink in my hand, looking for anything but love. 

When I see Derek Turner—a sexy homicide detective I’ve run into a few times before—walking along the beach, I’m not sure if he’s stalking me or if it’s fate. Dark and brooding with a past he refuses to talk about, Derek is the last thing I need…and is exactly what I want. 

But when what started off as a rebound turns into something more, something neither of us can deny, I’m left with love’s greatest irony: finding the right person at the worst possible time. 

Then Comes Marriage is a full-length, standalone novel


OUTSIDE THE LINES

Nerd. Geek. Loser. Words spoken to me on a daily basis. Words that used to hurt me, but have lost their power. I’ve embraced who I am, and if science fiction and gaming makes me uncool, well then I don’t wanna be. 

So when a talk, dark and handsome stranger runs into me—literally—at a coffee shop and spills my iced mocha down the front of my shirt, I assume he’ll laugh it off and forget about me, and not have it be the single event that causes my life to spiral out of control. After all, when things seem too good to be true, they usually are. Because Ben has it all. Good looks. A job as killer as his abs. Great hair and great skills in bed. There’s no way someone like him can be interested in someone like me. 

Ulterior motives? Probably. Professional stalker? Most likely. Why else would he be interested? Yet when we see each other again, there’s an attraction I can’t deny. I might be taping my very own “kick me” sign on my back when I agree to go out with him. My dream guy, interested in me for real? Hah, yeah right. 

Because guys like Ben don’t fall for girls like me. 

**Outside the Lines is a sexy romantic comedy and is a standalone novel**

 


NEVER SAY NEVER

My life was full of nevers. 

It was never supposed to go this way. I was never supposed to lose Mom so soon. I was never supposed to worry about making ends meet, to worry about losing the farm. I never thought I’d be working a job I hate, with a boss who was more interested in what was under my shirt than in my head. Saving neglected and abused horses had been my whole life. It was my reprieve, my sanity, my last saving grace in a cruel world. I never thought I’d grow to resent it, but I guess there is a first for everything. 

Then I met him. 

The Hollywood playboy. The entitled, cocky as*hole that I can’t get out of my head. I never thought there could be more to him than sex appeal and an infamous reputation of loving and leaving. I never thought I’d fall for him, put my heart on the line, and risk letting him completely destroy me. 

But you know what they tell you…never say never.


ALL OR NOTHING

Grayson King is anything but royal…

Pepper Davenwood is the embodiment of class…

They say opposites attract, but what happens when they collide? 

Recently released from prison, the only thing Grayson wants more than a fresh start is a chance to prove himself to the only woman he’s ever loved. But with a past he can’t talk about, a criminal record he can’t explain, and the mess his father left in wake of his sudden death, Grayson knows it’s not going to happen. 

Until it does. 

And now that he’s back in her life, Grayson realizes the very woman he’d give up everything for might be the one to take it all away. Because the heart knows no limits when it comes to love, and Grayson will do whatever it takes to keep Pepper safe. Even if it means breaking the law…again.
