Coming in 2014!!

Hey gang, so as promised here are the covers and blurbs for the SURRENDER TRILOGY releasing in 2014 :))  Hope you love!!




 Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her. Dominance. Lonely and searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find is the one man who’s long been a source of comfort—and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend.

Dash has lived in an untenable position for years. In love with his best friend’s wife and unwilling to act on that attraction. He’d never betray his best friend. And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.

When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he’s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world.  He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to.




Kylie sees the way Jensen looks at her. The dark promise in his eyes. That rough edge of dominance she knows he possesses. But dominance is the one thing that frightens her above all else. She and her brother barely survived a childhood steeped in violence and abuse. She could never give up total control and submit to a man. Especially a man like Jensen. Could she?

Jensen sees the shadows in Kylie’s eyes. Knows he has to tread very carefully or risk losing any chance he has with her. All he wants is the opportunity to show her that dominance doesn’t equal pain, bondage or discipline. That emotional surrender is the most powerful of all, and that to submit—fully to him—will fulfill the aching void in her heart in a way nothing else ever will.




Chessy and Tate have been married for several years. In the beginning, their relationship was everything she wanted. Passionate. All consuming. She offered her submission freely and Tate cherished her gift with a tenderness that made her feel safe. Content. Wanted. And loved beyond all measure. But as the years have gone by, Tate has become more immersed in making his business the success it has become, and Chessy has taken a back seat to his business obligations. Growing unhappier with the status of their once blissful marriage, Chessy knows that something has to give. Or they stand to lose it all

Tate loves his wife. Has always loved her. Providing for her has always been his number one priority. But lately she’s seemed unhappy, and he’s worried. Worried enough that he arranges for a night together that he hopes will reignite the fire that once burned like an inferno between them.

But a business call at the wrong time threatens everything. Chessy’s safety, his concentration, his wife’s faith in him as her husband, a man sworn to love and protect her above all else. Gutted with the realization that he’s going to lose her—has already lost her—he readies for the fight of his life. Whatever it takes, he’ll get her back. And prove to her that nothing is more important than her love. And that if she’ll allow him to prove himself one more time, he’ll take it all. Everything. But he’ll give far more back. Himself. His undying love.

Book Bash in Orlando FL info!

I’ve been trying to catch up on all the info and details for the upcoming BOOK BASH in Orlando. As you all know, these past months have been CRAZY for me on a personal level with family and health issues but I’ve been trying to prepare for BOOK BASH and making sure that I’m doing everything I’m supposed to for the event lol. Hence the flurry of Facebook posts about the event as I try to pass along allpertinent info to you guys. If you are attending BOOK BASH, PLEASE READ the below info from ME

In the event FAQ for readers attending the event, there are many questions and answers pertaining to what an author will sign, if pictures can be taken and can you have other items other than books signed. If you haven’t checked out the reader FAQ for readers attending Book Bash, then it’s a fantastic source of information. Be sure and check it out!

I’m going to post what I am willing to do, but please understand, I am ONLY speaking for MYSELF and am not speaking for other authors as each author will have their own parameters for what they are willing to do or not do

This is a READER event and is for you guys! It’s not about ME as an author. It’s very much about YOU and a venue in which you are the all important component.

I will stay beyond the 4:00 “end” to the event to sign books for any readers who have not yet gotten a chance to get books signed. There are a LOT of attending authors but there are FAR more readers attending and so it’s hard for readers to get to every author’s table they want in a four hour time limit. So please know, that I am absolutely willing to stay as long as it takes for everyone to have whatever they like signed by me.

I am also willing to have any other items signed that you wish, such as swag, book bags, t-shirts, autograph books, book plates, WHATEVER you want signed (within reason hahaha) I am willing to sign.

This also goes for brought from home books or already purchased books that you bring to the event. I will never make a reader purchase a book just to have a signature because that’s a pretty expensive signature! I never want to make a reader buy a copy of a book they’ve already spent their hard earned money on just to have it signed by me. So I’ll be signing books bought at the event as well as any books brought to the event from home.

I am absolutely willing and would be happy to take pictures with anyone who wants them taken. My assistant will be with me and she is always happy to take photos so that the reader can be in the picture with me if they so desire.

I realize that this is a time intensive process, and that in many cases, long waits are inevitable for readers in line. However, please know that I won’t rush ANYONE. I’ll spend as much time necessary with each reader to have whatever they want signed and to take pictures or answer questions.

This is not always a happy thing if you’re further back in line and waiting on the people in front of you, but please understand that when it’s YOUR turn, I will take every bit as much time with YOU as I did all the previous readers, so I ask that you be patient and understand while you wait, knowing that when it’s your turn that you won’t be rushed along either

Signings are fun, and even when you have to wait in lines to see one of your favorite authors, it’s always fun to talk to the people in front or behind you and it’s always an opportunity to dish books because hey! Books are what signings are all about :)))

So please know that I’m willing to spend as much time as necessary at the event in order to ensure that every reader gets their opportunity to meet with ALL the authors they want to meet with at Book Bash. I won’t be dashing out the door at 4:00 sharp and will hang out as long as there are readers waiting in line or wanting to have me sign books for them.

Thanks for reading this far if you made it! I wanted to make it clear to everyone attending the event so no one would worry once they got there and realized that over 1200 readers are all gathered under one roof and panic and think “OMG I’ll never get to see all the authors I want to see in four hours with lines for each author!”

The authors are there for YOU, and I’ll be there for as long as it takes for any reader wanting to meet me or have a book signed

xoxo and can’t WAIT to see those of you who are attending!
