A rock star on the run meets his match in the person who wants to bring him home.

When Beryl confronts the reckless rock star, she wants to know more than just what to do with his mess. Why is he running? What’s he searching for? And is he responsible for the death of his muse?

Beryl must find her footing in Gavin’s crazy world of the ultra-wealthy to discover her own direction and what can bring him back.

Stella Ramsey always says bad boys can’t break your heart.
They don’t call, don’t cuddle and don’t send flowers—but what do you expect? For Stella, no strings means no regrets.

When the biggest story of her fledgling career as a music journalist nearly ruins her relationship with her best friend, Stella has one chance to redeem herself. Tyler Walsh could be that chance.

Stella promises the bassist for the rock band Tattoo Thief anything in exchange for behind-the-scenes access. But when Tyler’s explosive secret thrusts Stella into the media spotlight, she must choose between the selling the story and telling the truth—and exposing the truth about herself as well.

On the Internet, secrets never die…
Violet can’t imagine anything worse than having her very private, very naked photos strewn across the Internet.

Until they multiply like a virus.
With her name, address, and phone number attached.
And her boss finds out.
And a stalker finds her.

Violet’s refuge is a rock star known for going through groupies faster than guitar picks. Letting Jayce get close enough to protect her exposes her secrets—and her heart—to a man whose celebrity could ruin her.

That’s because being a nobody is the one thing that keeps Violet’s photos from making headlines. Secrets spread like wildfire when celebrity fans the flames.

Say it Louder SM

I had a choice—dump my toxic girlfriend, or break up my band. It should have been easy. But she’s been collecting dirt on all of us for years.

Just when I think I’ve hit rock bottom, a pink-haired street artist rocks my world. They call Willa “the Parking Lot Picasso.” I call her my refuge, my center, my last reason to hope.

When Willa’s life on the streets collides with a sudden spotlight on her art, I’ll stop at nothing to protect her. But when the spotlight turns on my secret shame, she might be my only salvation.

Available on Amazon, iBooks, NookKobo, and in print.



Second chances don’t come easy for a guy like me.

When I get one—as a roadie for Tattoo Thief’s concert tour—I’m gonna give it all I’ve got.

But the band’s new drummer rocks me in every way. She’s Ryan Sinclair, my teenage dream. I fell in love with her, and then I broke her heart.

No way she’ll give me a second chance. No way I’m leaving this earth without it.

Available Jan. 31, 2017. Preorder now on iBooks, Nook, and Kobo. Amazon preorder to come.

He offered “one night, no strings and no regrets…”
But mind-blowing sex is a wicked way to meet your new colleague.

Congresswoman Grace Colton is the most famous woman in politics—and the loneliest—until a drawling, sexy stranger rocks her world.

Grace wakes to an empty hotel room and a phone call: The dark horse for the 2016 presidential election, Senator Shep Conover, is considering her as his vice presidential running mate. But before she can be selected, Grace must be vetted and coached by Shep’s political consultant, Jared Rankin, who already knows too many intimate details about her.

He’s Mr. One-Night Stand.

Grace is torn: play nice with Jared to join the senator’s ticket, or play hardball and back the slick frontrunner? Grace must decide where her loyalties lie and if she can trust Jared with her future—and her heart.

When Grace reveals the explosive truth to her running mate, squeaky-clean Senator Conover must confront his own haunted past. Grace’s future—and their campaign—could be ruined by the lies meant to protect what they love most.

Available on Amazon, iBooksNookKobo and in print.

The players are drawing battle lines inside the campaign at the worst possible time. And an extremist group won’t take chances with the election when they have a chance to eliminate Grace now.
