Ash Harker is skilled at her job as a professional bodyguard. She’s former military, but she also has a secret romantic streak a mile wide. She’s just always known that true love is for other people—people with fewer scars than she has.
Serena Davenport has clawed her way to the top of the business world, and with a successful company to run, she has no time for love. But when Serena finds herself the target of a stalker and needs someone to keep her safe, the bodyguard who shows up at her door looks startlingly familiar…
One terrible date a few weeks ago was something both Ash and Serena swore to put behind them. But now, unexpectedly, they’re forced back into each other’s lives. The date may have been a disaster, but the scorching hot attraction between them is undeniable.
With a murderous criminal on their trail, they can’t afford any distractions—and what’s more distracting than love?
My most recent novel, Falling for You, has just been released as an audio book! Listen to the story of Charlie and Francesca as the two women compete as partners on a reality TV show and try not to fall into the doomed trap of “contestants in love”…or at least not get caught doing so.

Hi everyone! Happy February 🙂 This month my next book, Guarding Her Heart, will be released. I made some teasers using lines from the book, and I’ll be posting them here and on my Facebook page. I’m in love with this story and these characters, so I can’t wait to release them into the world 🙂
Ash is former military and works as a bodyguard now. She’s stubborn and gruff, and she’s pretty sure she’ll never be able to charm a woman. She thinks she has zero chance of ever finding love, even though she’s got a secret romantic streak a mile wide. The one time she puts herself out there, it ends in disaster.
Serena is a rising star in the business world and has spent her whole career learning to never show weakness. She’s too busy for romance and she gets cold feet whenever things progress past the physical anyway. She’s just as stubborn as Ash, but then she starts getting threats and she’s forced to let somebody else take control of her life for a while.
And they fight crime! (Well, sort of.) Does anyone else remember that character generator website, They Fight Crime? It would spit out random descriptions of a crime-fighting duo, like “He’s a washed-out Australian puppeteer with LSD flashbacks who farms goats. She’s a fast-talking champion pumpkin pie-eater who’s on the run from the mafia. And they fight crime!”
Back when I was in college (oh god how many years ago?) my friends and I used to have a blast using that for writing prompts 🙂 Anyway, here are the first two teasers!
Hi everyone! An audio book of my most recent release, Falling For You, is coming out soon! I had a great time writing this novel and I think makes a really fun audio book. Look for lots of excitement as two ladies–Francesca and Charlie–compete as a team on a reality TV show that put them together because of how very different they are. The worst thing you can do on a show like this is fall for your partner, right?
The audio book of Falling For You should be available in a week or so 🙂
If reading is more your style, give the ebook or paperback a try! It’s available on Kindle Unlimited for free 🙂
One of the things I like the most about writing novels is that I’m always learning things about the craft. With every book I write, I get closer to portraying women and their love stories the way I hope I can. In talking to my publisher at Rose and Star Press, we came to the conclusion that The Makeover Challenge wasn’t a fitting title for the novel. It tells readers that the most important thing about the book is the reality TV series the characters participate in; but that’s not even close to the truth. The most important thing is how Charlie and Francesca fall in love and, together, overcome the things holding them back.
So it’s with pleasure that I introduce the re-release: Falling For You.
Who expects to fall in love on reality TV?
Certainly not Miss Charlie Vega, a burnt-out designer in desperate need of inspiration. Neither does Francesca Davies, a rock-climbing internet celebrity with an overbearing family. The two of them audition to compete on a hit reality TV series for very different reasons, but when they get paired up as a team, the road to victory gets a lot more complicated.
They have almost zero in common, but their fiery chemistry is immediate and intense. With their complicated baggage, neither is exactly ready for love, but they’re certainly not averse to some steamy encounters…that are bound to get them into hot water.
Could they even make a real relationship work on a show that’s actually nothing like reality?
Happy New Year, everyone!
I found out something super exciting today You may have seen me talking about how I participated in Jae’s Lesbian Book Bingo last year. My novel Prairie Heart was included in the “friends to lovers” category as a recommended read and as a giveaway. I just found out that Prairie Heart was among the top 10 most-read books in its category! The “friends to lovers” category had 135 books in it, so I’m really, really proud and grateful that so many people chose PRAIRIE HEART to read. It’s one of my absolute favorites (and my wife’s favorite!)
I hope anyone who participated in Lesbian Book Bingo had a great time reading tons of lesfic! I’m working hard on SAVING SERENA and I have some teasers to share with you soon
Hi everyone! The book I’m currently working on has the tentative title Saving Serena, and it’s the story of a corporate celebrity and the woman hired to protect her from a stalker.
As a rising star in the design business, Serena is used to having her own way…but Ash, the ex-military bodyguard assigned to her, refuses to let her go on walking blithely into unsafe situations. They clash constantly. Serena can’t stand that Ash’s strong beauty drive her nuts, and Ash refuses to believe that she’s starting to have feelings for a client. Things with Serena’s stalker are getting worse and worse, though. That’s where this part comes in.
“This can’t be happening,” Serena said roughly. “We were all… I was so sure we were all overreacting. All these precautions were ‘just to be safe.’ And he was some loser with nothing better to do than send hate-mail to a celebrity. But seeing all this, it just becomes clear. He’s—” She kept walking in circles, holding her arms closer and closer to her chest like she could draw inside herself. “He’s crazy. He might do…anything.”
I intercepted her path and she stopped short, looking up at me. Panic was tugging at the edges of her expression, trying to take over. I put my hands on her shoulders and gripped them gently.
“I promise,” I said, looking into her eyes and speaking with slow, firm certainty. “I promise I won’t let anything happen to you.” I was silent for a moment as I held her gaze, and I hoped with my entire being that she believed me. It was a truth I felt deep in my bones, so deep that it was intrinsic, irrefutable, like saying that water is wet or that the sun is hot.
And then, like a broken marionette, she melted into me.
Look for Saving Serena in February! It’s been really exciting to write, and I think it’s my most romantic yet ❤
