New Release Coming Soon

The second book in The Quest for Kinky Love Series will be out soon. It focuses on Daphne and Ben, who appeared in the first book, but is a standalone story.

Here's the blurb...

Bold, determined, and a little—or a lot—stubborn, would be how Daphne’s friends would describe her if asked. And that’s exactly what she wants them to think. She’s a woman in control and she knows her own mind. And she doesn’t need help from anyone. Unfortunately, sometimes the universe decides to expose your vulnerability at exactly the wrong moment, which turns your life upside down.

Ben’s a successful restauranteur and chef, living the life as a single man with a long line of willing submissives ready to his bidding in bed. At least, that’s what everyone thinks, but only half of that statement is true. He’s spent most of the last six years busting his butt in a hot kitchen, making his dream come true.

Ben hadn’t exactly been pining for Daphne, but she’d always been the one that got away. The one he could have seen himself building a life with…eventually. Except by the time he was ready to reconnect she’d hardened her heart and wouldn’t even speak to him, let alone give their relationship another chance. But then the universe threw him a bone and placed him in exactly the right spot to maneuver himself back into her life, but will he have enough time to make her want him again?

I've been neglectful

Wow! I haven't posted anything since November 2015. I knew it had been awhile, but almost two years?

So what's happened since then?

I released my first self published book, Finding Dom. It's my take on kinky dating in real life, and is the first in a series.

I'm in the process of updating and re-releasing my Chances of Discipline Series. They've been revised and have gorgeous new covers.

My children have continued to grow and are both almost taller than me. My Evil Day Job continues to be just that-stressful and soul sucking. And I'm turning 40 in less than three weeks. Which I'm really not sad about. I have no complaints in my life, except that I'd prefer to be home writing all day and not sitting in an office, but who wouldn't?

I've got some other ideas brewing in my head than I'm hoping to exorcise this fall, but we'll see how far I get. They're pretty fully formed so perhaps the words will just flow out onto the paper...

Snippet from Deceptive Practices

Here's a little taste of my book in Corbin's Bend Season 4, Deceptive Practices, due out this week. Enjoy!

The evening passed without any more odd behavior from Sebastian. They made dinner and sat down and ate together. Chloe dominated the conversation, telling Sebastian all about the playground and other sights they’d seen on their drive. Nancy watched him closely for any clues to what was going on in his head, but she didn’t pick up on anything out of the ordinary. Maybe he’d been annoyed that she and Chloe were gone for so long earlier, but when she asked while they were chopping the vegetables for the stir-fry earlier, he’d said he was busy all day.  

By the time they tucked Chloe into bed Nancy had chalked it up to her own worries and guilt making her see things that weren’t there, creating issues where there were none.

Unfortunately, they wouldn’t be trouble free for long though. As soon as she was sure Chloe was fast asleep Nancy would have to tell Sebastian the truth. Her stomach fluttered and her heart pounded as the minutes crept past. They’d settled on the couch to watch television and Sebastian appeared engrossed in a crime drama she’d never seen before.

Maybe she should wait another half hour until it was over? But then it would be almost ten o’clock and they would both probably head to bed early tonight, tired after the last few days. Maybe she could wake up early and tell him in the morning, first thing? That might be a better idea!

The more she considered it, the more she managed to convince herself that waiting until tomorrow would be for the best. They’d both be fresh and rested, not worn and possibly cranky.

Decision made, Nancy relaxed for the first time that day. Sure she’d have to deal with everything tomorrow, but she could at least enjoy tonight. Sitting back on the couch, she made herself comfortable and tried to pick up the thread of the show on T.V.

Not two minutes later the television suddenly turned off.

“Hey, did you accidentally hit the power button on the remote?” she asked Sebastian, laughing. “I was just getting into that.”

He stood and approached where she sat, legs tucked underneath her. “No, I shut it off on purpose.” He held out his hand, pulling her up off the couch when she placed her hand in his. “I wanted to show you something in the basement, and talk to you about a few things.”
