Eden
I’m organizing New York’s biggest charity event of the year. But when the keynote speaker drops out, the success of my business hangs in the balance.
There’s one man who can help me. And no, I’m not above flying to the middle of nowhere to plead with the baseball legend in hiding.
All I need is a yes.
I didn’t expect his hostility. I didn’t expect a hurricane to trap me alone with him. And I didn’t expect to find that he still owns my heart after all this time.
Chase
I left New York two years ago with my life and superstar career in shambles. All I want is solitude and peace to heal and start a new business, a new life, a new me.
Then Eden shows up, asking for the impossible. If I could say yes, I would. She doesn’t know the whole truth about my downfall. And I don’t want her to know.
To save us both, I will have to remind her I’m the bastard who hurts the ones he loves.
Tormented Bastard is a second chance/sports romance inspired by Cocky Bastard.

The plane took off and I couldn’t stop trembling, despite the soothing sound of the pilot singing a Beatles song over the intercom.
My name is Bianca “Binx” Moretti, and I hack from the rich to give to the poor—mostly. Only I hacked from the wrong rich guy and was literally on the flight for my life.
When Xander Hawke took the seat next to me, he tried to charm me with his smooth talking ways and dimpled cheeks. Yeah, he’s drop dead gorgeous, but he’s also arrogant as hell.
And I had more important things to worry about. Like the emergency landing our plane made because of mechanical issues.
Oh, and guess what? Xander Hawke? Yeah, not a sexy playboy model. Nope. He’s a sexy playboy Air Marshal who only sat next to me because he pegged me as a threat.
Stupid, arrogant—
Okay, to be fair, there had been a threat on the plane, but I wasn’t the source.
I was the target.
Stuck in an unfamiliar city, I had to rely on Xander Hawke to keep me alive until I could safely get out of the country.
Sure, we were stuck together for the next few days, but that didn’t mean we had to give into temptation.
Except we did.
What started out as a way to let off steam evolved into something I never expected.
But we stood on opposite sides of the law, so it couldn’t last right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Arrogant Air Marshal is a protector romantic suspense inspired by Playboy Pilot and British Bed Mate.

Real love is an illusion that left me heartbroken and a single mother. I tried, failed, and am finally picking up the pieces.

Ace
As a pilot, I live for the rush of flying thousands of feet into the air. I didn’t do relationships. The word commitment was not part of my vocabulary. I had fun, played the field, and did whatever I wanted, but one weekend with her changed everything. I couldn’t forget her. Cass is guarded, but I can see over her walls. She’s afraid and hurt, but I won’t let that stop me. I plan on healing her heart and winning over her and her son, and unlike the idiot who let her go, I never will.

Dear Ida,
Never in a million years did I think I’d turn to an advice column for help, but I’m stuck. Moving to New York is my dream come true, but the big city is a tough place to navigate for a small-town, southern girl like me. Luckily, fate sent me my very own knight in shining armor.
Only Whitaker Aldrich didn’t ride in on his white steed to save me. He picked me up on his Harley Davidson, wearing a leather jacket and sporting a cocky smirk that doesn’t bode well for my man free diet. He screams one-night stand.
But there’s so much more to him than that bad boy billionaire persona. He’s thoughtful and kind and his six-year-old son is his entire world.
That twinkle in his brilliant green eyes makes me weak in the knees and I’m terrified that I won’t be able to protect my already bruised heart. I should probably say no when he asks me to be his nanny, right?
Yeah, getting involved with Whit would be a huge mistake.
I should definitely say no. Maybe… Possibly?
Help!
Yours truly,
The Billionaire’s Babysitter

BLURB
My sister lives to ruin my life.
That isn’t fair. It’s not her fault our dance instructor called me fat and awkward, and our parents funded Lisa’s training because I had a better head for business.
So when Lisa went off the rails after her injury, it naturally came to me to track her down. The trail starts at the Spearmint Rhino —an upscale gentlemen’s club five minutes off the Las Vegas strip, where a group of hot Aussie soccer players are having a bachelor party. Hello, Chance Bateman! My sister still wears his jersey as a nightgown. However, Lisa’s trail goes cold at Dalton’s, which is owned by a world-famous bouncer, Miles Carvello—six feet four inches of muscle, tattoos, and swagger. Combined with his intense green-eyed gaze, Miles makes my insides sizzle. I’m just not sure if Miles Carvello is the reason she’s hiding out or not. Danger seems to surround him.
How does a former Broadway hoofer wind up in Vegas as a stripper? I’m about to find out, since no one will talk to me because I’m an outsider. And besides, Miles thinks I’m too much of a prude to do it.
I need to find my sister. She’s in trouble. I can feel it. I keep running into the bachelor party as well as Miles while I’m out searching for her. And while both of them are a good time, they’re not getting me any closer to finding Lisa. And I’ve got a terrible feeling that her time is running out.
***
I don’t remember Jackie Mitchell’s sister. Just another stripper with baggage in a long line of them. But Jackie? Damn, she’s the real deal. I don’t want to get distracted. I need to shoot this club into the stratosphere. I owe it to my uncle’s memory not to let the gangsters win. But she oozes sensuality that reminds me that I should take time to enjoy the finer things in life – like her long, toned legs wrapped around my shoulders.
However, the demons of my past are pushing into my future. If they’re going after my employees, as a way to get to me —they picked the wrong guy to mess with. And if they touch Jackie, all bets are off and I’ll put them in the ground—and to hell with the consequences.
Tough Guy takes place a year before the events of Cocky Bastard and features a few appearances by our favorite Aussie soccer player, Chance Bateman before he meets the love of his life, Aubrey.

*Tough Guy is a bad boy/road trip erotic romantic suspense inspired by Cocky Bastard.

I have been called arrogant. Ruthless. Heartless. I don’t consider those characteristics to be insults. If I am arrogant, ruthless, and heartless, then people cower down. I make my own rules and call all the shots. I suppose that’s why people opt to call me by my last name.

Before she completely ruins me.

AUTHOR BIO

I am a happily married mother of three (two boys and one girl). I live in a very small town in Alabama. Never lived anywhere else. I’ve been writing since my early twenties, but I couldn’t seem to finish a book. I’ve started self-publishing with the encouragement from my mom. Without her encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve done it. She always supported me and writing is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. As long as I enjoy it, I’ll continue to do it. I’ve learned already that I can’t please everyone. Not all reviews will be good, not all reviews will be bad. I’m the one that has to be happy with my work.

I get my inspiration from life experiences, movies, television, other authors, and music. Music is definitely a big influence on my writing. I can hear a song and it can inspire an entire book for me. I listen to it while I’m driving or before I start writing and it keeps me inspired. I like to put music in my books, even if it’s just one song the characters listen to or hear at some point. Sometimes music has gotten me through the really tough times in my life and that’s why it inspires me.

I like to write fast-paced, steamy romance reads. I like for my males to be alpha-males and my heroines to be strong, but both need to have one weakness- each other. I am an avid reader. I absolutely love romance books!

My Thursday afternoon meeting was a no show. Imagine my surprise when a drenched, flustered brunette slipped into the booth across from me, acting like she was supposed to be there.
When she slipped back out with a snappy goodbye, I never thought I’d see her again.
Until I walked into my Friday morning meeting.
At first, I didn’t recognize her—she was dry this time. But from the look on her face, she recognized me.
When she gave the worst pitch I’ve ever sat through, I thought my boss, and mentor, was going to show her the door—except he accepts the proposal and tells me we have to work together.
I didn’t anticipate I would like her, let alone be interested in her. Sure, she was hot and sassy.
But something about her rubbed me the wrong way.
And yet I couldn’t stop thinking about her.
So, when she leaves the room and her phone chimes with a new text, I knew I wasn’t supposed to look.
I also knew I wasn’t supposed to cancel her date for later that evening.
And I definitely knew I wasn’t supposed to delete the entire exchange, so she had no idea what I’d done.
But I did. And then I showed up at the restaurant, pretending like this was all a big coincidence.
When the date is over, I want more. I need more.
We start pretend-dating because she needs practice, and I tell myself, New York’s most eligible billionaire bachelor, that this is just a bit of fun.
What could possibly go wrong?
*Mister Manhattan is a contemporary enemies to lovers romance inspired by Stuck-Up Suit.
