Us All Along – Available Now!

The fifth and last book in the Bright Park Romance series, Us All Along, is available now! You can find it at the following retailers:

Amazon | Apple | Barnes and Noble | Kobo


Maryanne Gates has always been “the shy girl,” but snotty comments from her roommate about her virginity has her desperate to change that image. She’s never felt more ready to gain confidence and lose her V-card. And she wants to do it with Dan, the sexy but cocky guy of her dreams. There’s one problem: even though Dan is single, it’s obvious he has a thing for Robyn, the nicest girl in Bright Park.

But Lake DuBois, Maryanne’s most outgoing and amusing coworker, could be the solution to that problem. Lake also likes Robyn, and if Maryanne helps Lake win Robyn over, Dan might move on and finally notice Maryanne.

It sounds like the perfect plan, but after spending so much time with Lake, Maryanne’s falling hard for him. Whether she risks their friendship by confessing her feelings or sticks to the original goal of a one-night stand, her future looks full of rejection with both Lake and Dan chasing Robyn. It would take an exceptional amount of courage for “the shy girl” to take action—if she even has a chance at all.

When a one-night stand feels like so much more…

Mountain lion shifter Laura Vidal has been given two choices: leave the territory to find a mate, or become a guardian of the pride. Unwilling to leave the only home she’s ever known, Laura chooses the rigorous and bruising guardian training. Honestly, she’s glad for the training because it keeps her too busy to see Dristan, the guy who rocked her world during an amazing one-night stand.

Dristan Rhees can’t forget the girl who stole his heart after a single night of unbridled passion, despite the fact that she now won’t give him the time of day. But when vampires invade their territory, he and Laura are forced to work together. In order to defend their pride, they must confront the desire that still threatens to consume them.

New Release: Savanna Bear

I’m so pleased to share with you the next and last book in the Hotel Safari series, Savanna Bear, which is available to buy as of today.

This book was so much fun to write because Megan was so much fun. When I first created her for Book 4, Broken Lynx, I loved her so much I knew I had to give her her own story. She just loves life and love and sex soooo much and is able to express and enjoy those parts of herself, which isn’t easy for all women.


Here’s the official blurb:

A grizzly doesn’t belong on the African savanna but can he find a place in a human’s heart?

As the Head of Marketing for a multinational hotel corporation based in London, free-spirited Megan Larch has seen her share of hotel rooms. She’s also seen—and loved—her share of men. Megan has a type, and the extremely large, extremely buff American at Hotel Safari isn’t it. While she’ll never turn up her nose at a good shag, she came to the lodge to visit old friends, not make new ones.

Xander Simpson is a bear shifter on the prowl for a new adventure. He quit his job in Minneapolis to try his hand at wildlife photography on the Kenyan savanna. The sexy British redhead doesn’t fit into his plans, but she stirs emotions in him he never expected from a human woman.

When Megan learns her friends have been hiding an age-old secret, can she overcome her feelings of betrayal and forgive them? Or will her guarded nature keep her from the one man who could finally convince her to settle down?

Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this journey. So many of you responded positively to the launch of Book 5, Thai Rebound, that I hope you’ll give Megan and Xander a chance, too.



Release of Thai Rebound!

I’m so pleased to announce the release of the newest installment in the Hotel Safari series: Thai Rebound (Hotel Safari, Book 5).


Can an ice queen’s heart melt in the sultry heat of a Thai rebound?

Elizabeth Canterwell had closed herself off to love after Colin Kemboi rejected her. Now, she has run off to southern Thailand to forget him and possibly find pleasure in the arms of another. But she still has her place in London’s cutthroat social scene to consider.

Chon is a French-educated landscape architect employed by Hotel Safari Thailand. He is a Thai elephant shifter with the body of a fighter and the mind of an intellectual. He senses vulnerability in Elizabeth despite her refusal to entertain the idea of a relationship with the hired help.

Will he break down her walls to find her beauty within or are they each doomed to be alone?

Hope you enjoy Thai Rebound (or whichever of my books you’re up to). While this is Book 5, each book is a stand-alone romance, so you can read them in any order. I only recommend reading Book 1 first.


Fierce Lover–Available Now!


The Sierra Pride series is now complete! Eight novellas (and a short story exclusive to my mailing list of Awesome Readers). It’s been such a fun ride!

Once I knew where the series arc was going, I could not wait to write Starla’s homecoming. I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! You can get the book on Amazon or AmazonSmile for 99 cents, or read it free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription!


Turn To Love — Available Now!

The fourth book in the Bright Park Romance series, Turn To Love, is available now! You can find it on Amazon and Kobo, and it will soon be available on B&N and iBooks.


Caelyn Jones hadn’t planned to have a guy as a roommate—especially one as cynical and disorganized as Drexel Blackford—but she’s not in a position to be picky. His apartment is by far the most convenient and affordable for her. And besides, Drexel’s super hot, and he’s not mean to her or anything. He just doesn’t show any desire to be her friend.

Still, Caelyn is determined to be an optimist, even while going through the heartache with her estranged parents and the silent treatment she receives from her best friend. It doesn’t matter if Drexel’s the opposite of her in every way. She’ll find a way to become his friend, and ideally, something more.

But her positive thinking can only last for so long when there’s no one around to build her up. Drexel might be part of the reason she finally breaks down… but he also could be the only one to help put her back together.

Feel free to add Turn To Love on Goodreads if you’re interested in checking it out!

Till Next Time,

Fierce Survivor–Now Available!

Out today is Fierce Survivor, Book 7 of the Sierra Pride series! I’m so excited to share this novelette with the world because the theme of surviving and overcoming trauma is universal. There are as many different experiences with it as there are people in the world, and seeing it through Cora’s eyes was incredibly satisfying to me as an author. I hope that translates into satisfaction for readers!


Cora Fournier can’t seem to get out from under her family’s watchful eye. Granted, her whole stint in captivity with the Nevada Pride has made everyone feel a mite overprotective of her. Still, she’s ready to move past her trauma until Jerome, alpha of the Nevada Pride, shows up with his son, Tyler. He wants to make peace with the Fourniers, and he’s offering them Tyler as a loyal worker and pride member. There’s one catch—according to pride law, in order to stay with the Fourniers, Tyler has to become Cora’s husband.

Tyler Brooks loved Cora all along. Tortured by his inability to win a challenge against his brother, who’d been intent on keeping her in captivity, Tyler has spent the last two years feeling weak and useless. Now that they’re free of his brother, he has a chance to prove to Cora that whether or not this marriage is on paper only, they belong together, and he will fight to keep her.

You can grab the story here on Amazon and AmazonSmile. 99 cents, or free to KU subscribers. Have a great week, everyone!
