Guarding Her Heart final

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?

Guarding Her Heart – Teaser time!

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!

Falling For You

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?

Prairie Heart is in the Top 10 Most-Read Books in Jae’s Lesbian Book Bingo!

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 

The Makeover Challenge has been getting some really great reviews! I’m super happy, because it’s one of my all-time favorite novels I’ve written ❤ If you’ve read it, would you consider leaving an honest review on Amazon (linked above)? It doesn’t have to be long or anything. All reviews support authors and help us reach our audiences!

I’m hard at work on my next book, which is tentatively titled Saving Serena. It’s going to be action-packed 🙂 I’ve written a couple of mystery-themed romances before, specifically my paranormal romance Hereafter and my very first novel, Heart of Glasswhich reached the #1 spot on Amazon’s Best Sellers in Lesbian Romance. I’m super excited about adding another to my list!

Winters tend to be kind of hard for me, so I’m working on learning to love the snow and coziness that we can find when the earth starts to hibernate. I hope you’ll all have a peaceful, love-filled holiday season ❤

The Makeover Challenge – Released Today!

AAAHHH, IT’S HERE! I’m super psyched to share my newest novel, The Makeover Challenge! You can get it on Amazon, or read it for FREE with Kindle Unlimited! I’ll be releasing the paperback version soon.

All of my books are really important to me, but this one… This might be one of my VERY favorites, up there with THE ACTRESS and PRAIRIE HEART and HEREAFTER. It was such a joy to write, and I hope so much that you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it  ❤

Synopsis:

Who expects to fall in love on reality TV?

Certainly not Charlie Vega, a burnt-out fashionista in desperate need of inspiration. Neither does Francesca Davies, a rock-climbing internet celebrity with a family who thinks a woman’s worth is measured by her husband. The two of them are competing on the hit reality series “The Makeover Challenge” for very different reasons, but when they get paired up as a team, the road to victory gets a lot more complicated.

With so little in common, it’s surprising that their chemistry is immediate, but it isn’t long before each woman finds herself intensely attracted to the other. 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?
