Different men, different backgrounds, different lifestyles, all searching for meaning in their lives...
Then, they meet the women who complete them.
Excerpt from She Belongs to Me:
At that precise moment, the man sitting in her booth looked up from his menu, acknowledging her presence.
Wow! Now she understood Amy’s grin and offer to assist. The man at her table was a real looker. Not in a generic Hollywood way. He was a genuine all-American, but striking male. The man’s face, chiseled and sculpted to perfection, stared back: square chin, high cheekbones, and angular nose, all framed by a neatly trimmed beard trailing up his jaw that only added to his rugged look. His hair was a deep brown, almost black, and cropped short, military-style. His build resembled an officer of some sort. His shoulders were broad and held back in perfect posture, and based on their width, she now understood the need for a larger booth.
His eyes were the best, though. He had a lightly tanned complexion with dark brows, and beneath thick eyelashes were a set of arresting steel-blue eyes. They were beautiful. The shock of electricity that shot through her, though, was incapacitating. She couldn’t think; wow wasn’t quite enough to describe what she felt. Her feet felt as though they were rooted to the wood floor below her, and she couldn’t remember the last time she’d just gawked at a complete stranger.

Excerpt from Land of the Noonday Sun:
If she compiled a list, Chad would fill it…right up until the chosen career line, which would probably be foremost. He was exactly the correct height, about six-foot tall, she guessed. He had dark hair with a small amount of curl that went whichever way it pleased but worked for him. His skin was dark from all the hours in the sun, she assumed, which caused his brilliant blue eyes to stand out. And his build…she sighed...his arms and shoulders were incredible. He looked as though he’d just stepped out of a Hollister advertisement.
She shook her head to escape the ridiculous thoughts racing through her head. Remember the plan, Cassandra. This is merely a six-month detour, and then she was back on the plan. It wasn’t like her to get her head turned so easily; she was forever sensible.

Excerpt from Entangled Dreams:
Nicky held onto the stranger’s waist as he carefully drove out of the parking lot, nothing like Jonathan would have.
He was handsome. He had one of those faces that was just pleasant to look at, one that you couldn’t help but trust. His face was round and kind looking with a tiny cleft in his chin. He didn’t smile much, but the one time he almost did, when she’d asked for a ride, she could see the semblance of a dimple on his cheek. His hair was sandy brown and his eyes a deep hazel. He was taller than she was, too, and that was saying a lot. A little overdressed, though. Why would anyone go out on a Saturday night in dress pants and a button-down collared shirt and tie? And on a motorcycle, nonetheless.

Excerpt from When Noonday Ends:
Shelby examined Tom as he sat across from her. Man, he was good looking. She probably shouldn’t be thinking about things like that, but she couldn’t help it. He had the prettiest hazel eyes that stood out under long sun-bleached eyelashes. His hair was light brown, but it too had a natural hint of gold in it.
He dug inside his briefcase. “So,” he began, as he removed a manila folder with her name written neatly across the tab, “they dropped the charges?” It was a question, not a statement. He folded his hands on the table and looked up at her for an explanation, it seemed.
“I’m as shocked as you appear to be,” she admitted.
One side of his mouth inched up as he leaned back and crossed his arms across his chest, revealing how well built his upper body was. “Well, at the moment, I’m still bound under attorney-client confidentiality. Care to elaborate? Since you told me that you struck your husband—excuse me, ex-husband—but it’d been done in self-defense. Are you in danger?”

When you find the love of your life, no matter what happens, the only thing left to do is ... Hold On and LOVE LIKE CRAZY!
While the characters in Love Like Crazy are only eighteen, this is not "young-adult fiction." Jesse and Kayla's story is my traditional thread of romance, a gentle pull on your heart strings, a touch of suspense about what's going to happen next, and of course, learning to heal and live again after a tragedy...
Oh, and while this will be a series, Love Like Crazy is a stand-alone story. No cliffhanger!
College and career are hard enough without bringing love into the mix, so the last thing Jesse is looking for is a spring break fling. His future entails getting an MBA and taking over the reins of his father's small-time plumbing company and making it successful. He doesn’t have time for a girl, especially not one who's related to the spoiled rich girl who broke up his last relationship. One week with Kayla, though, changes everything.
Eighteen and in love, Jesse and Kayla now have everything they've ever wanted--until tragedy strikes. Now, thrust into a world of heartbreak and grief, others insist they are too young. But when you find the love of your life, no matter how young you are, no matter what happens, the only thing you can do is hold on and LOVE LIKE CRAZY.
Although tastefully written, this coming-of-age story includes adult situations appropriate for readers sixteen and older.

There's so much going on, I'm afraid I won't be able to keep up with my newsletter and social media, so, I'll give you a quick run-down, and then let you know how to be the first to know.
If you've been following me for a few years -- back when I used to blog regularly -- you probably know that besides my current list of sixteen published books, I have several books I haven't found the time to publish, and several books / series in the works. At this moment, I have three full-length novels that I plan to publish this year -- before Christmas, hopefully. And I have two series that I'm adding the finishing touches to that I plan to release in 2018.
In other words, I'm crazy busy, and since I refuse to allow anyone to control my email, newsletter, and social media pages, I probably won't be as visible as I usually am, but I will, however, always respond to my email. So, if you have a question for me, please reply to any newsletter or comment on anything on this site; it all comes to me.

If this is your first time visiting my site, I write in several different genres -- Romantic Suspense, Paranormal Romance, Supernatural Suspense, and Women's Fiction / Chick Lit -- but all of my novels share a common thread of romance, suspense, a hint of humor sometimes and, of course, a few Kleenex moments. After all, what would a great story be without and emotional even setting the stage. Also, all of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping, but not graphic, and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.
