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?

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  ❤

The Makeover Challenge on Amazon

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?

When life in their conservative town tore them apart, they went their separate ways…until a failed business forced Scarlett to return home again.

Homecoming cover final

Here’s the full summary:

Scarlett McKennon’s life in the big city is a big flop.

Her cupcake bakery went under, her roommate at her expensive apartment left her high and dry, and her girlfriend just reacted to “I love you” with “No thanks.” Her sophisticated metropolitan dream has crumbled all around her, and the only thing left to do is pull up stakes and return to the small town where she grew up.

What could be worse than limping home in defeat? The minute she steps off the train, Scarlett finds out: her first love, Joan, is waiting there to drive her into town, looking like the picture of sexy confidence. Joan was once a scared, self-conscious girl; now she’s come into her own as a mechanic and soccer coach, and Scarlett can’t help but wonder what might have been.

Carrying on a secret high-school romance in a conservative town was brutal, and Joan hadn’t been able to take the pressure. She broke Scarlett’s heart in exchange for a “normal” life that was doomed from the beginning. Now that Joan’s divorced, fate keeps putting Scarlett in her path. They may have tried to forget each other, but their chemistry is still undeniable.

Both women start to wonder if they might be right for each other after all… But is the spark they both feel enough, or will their shared past prove too painful to overcome? Find out in this new lesbian romance by wife-and-wife authors Marian Snowe and Ruby Grandin!

I’m so proud of this book, and so happy with it. It focuses a lot on nostalgia, memory, and the power of food to both evoke memories and make new ones. It’s got one of the flirtiest romances I’ve written so far, too 🙂 Here’s the summary!

As a successful event planner, Mila Fanucci can organize every detail of a party down to the last silk napkin. Too bad she can’t sort out her own love life.

It’s been years since Mila set foot in Cloudy Harbor, her hometown. After her first love took off without a word, Mila followed suit and moved away. But now, years later, Mila’s sister wants to get married at their childhood home, and Mila is forced to face her own loneliness.

To her surprise, she finds that sleepy Cloudy Harbor has changed almost as much as she has—and that change is embodied by Rickie, the sexy, rebellious master chef at the new modern cuisine restaurant.

With her dashing good looks and her culinary wizardry, Rickie charms Mila in a way she never imagined possible. But when a missing piece from Mila’s past blows into town, she realizes that she isn’t sure of anything anymore, and her delicious romance with Rickie is put to the test. Is history bound to repeat itself?

IT’S HERE!     

THE SECRET ADMIRER, my and my wife’s first romance novel together, is now available on Amazon! You can also read it for free on Kindle Unlimited, and the paperback will be coming soon!

Buy it on Amazon or read it for FREE on Kindle Unlimited: The Secret Admirer

I. AM. SO. PROUD. OF. THIS. BOOK. It’s the longest of any of my novels, and it was worth every word that Ruby and I wrote together. We fell in love writing stories (in fact, our characters fell in love before we even figured out our feelings for each other, haha) and I can’t express how FREAKING HAPPY it makes me that we just published a novel together. It’s been a long, long time in the works.

I try to portray emotional journeys in all of my books, but with Ruby’s help, this one is extra powerful. I really, really hope you all love it    

Here’s the summary:

All Cara Parker wants is to be swept off her feet…

But the way her life is going, that’s not happening anytime soon. She’s got a humdrum office job and a self-centered boyfriend, but those things are stable and safe. Her comfortable routine is worth more than silly fantasies of travel and romance, isn’t it?

All that changes with the arrival of Ellery Chandler, a silver-haired corporate superstar and “most eligible lesbian in the business world.” Cara’s encounter with this powerful, captivating woman starts off a series of events that challenge everything Cara thought she knew about herself, her life…and her desires.

In the midst of all this, gifts from a secret admirer start showing up on Cara’s desk. Will giving into her feelings set her free, or will it destroy everything she’s worked for? Because getting closer to Ellery Chandler comes with risks of its own.

This wife-and-wife team of best-selling author Marian Snowe and humor writer Ruby Grandin brings you a slow-burn lesbian romance full of heart, laughs, and second chances.

Actress Cover print high

I’m so proud of this novel. It’s fun, dramatic, sexy, and the emotional journey that Tabby and Moira take is very powerful for me. The Actress is about letting others into your heart, about making sacrifices, about what you shouldn’t have to sacrifice, about loving people the way they are–yourself included.

I’m utterly thrilled to share this book with you, and I hope you love it!

Here’s the official summary:

Tabby Gilbert won’t let love get in the way of becoming a star.

As a hopeful young actress, Tabby’s given the chance of a lifetime: a role in a television series that could make her a star. Tabby is determined to let nothing stop her rise toward fame, but she never could have predicted Moira Knox.

Moira, a critically acclaimed actress, sizzles in her roles on-screen, but off camera, she’s cold and so private that no one knows a thing about her life. She and Tabby clash immediately, and Tabby thinks things can’t get much worse…until Tabby is cast as Moira’s love interest.

The two actresses struggle to understand one another as they act out a passionate romance on-screen. Slowly, Tabby begins to glimpse the real Moira Knox, and the chemistry they try so hard to ignore threatens to set them afire. Torn between her career and her feelings for Moira, Tabby is poised for greatness…or a disastrous fall. Can love in the spotlight survive?

Two Alone and The Nature of Love are here!

YAHOO! Today is release day! Two Alone, my latest novella, is now available on Amazon along with a compilation of all of my novellas called The Nature of Love!

Writing Two Alone was IMMENSELY fun. It’s a funny, sexy story about what happens when you’re forced to reconsider what you THINK is good for you.

View Two Alone on Amazon—available to read for free on Kindle Unlimited!

Can one mistake ruin your chance at love forever?

Ivy Wilson has had enough of the spotlight to last her a lifetime. It was bad enough that someone stumbled on Ivy and her now ex-girlfriend fooling around in a not-so-private place, and worse still that they happened to be caught on video…but the video went viral, and Ivy’s ex was the one to help spread it around. If Ivy never sees another YouTube comment again, it’ll be too soon.

All Ivy wants is some privacy and some time to steady her nerves, but when she goes on a hike deep in the woods, a beautiful woman lands right at her feet…literally.

Sawyer Sherwood, expert adventurer and tree-climber extraordinaire, is too charming and too smoking hot for Ivy to ignore. They’re way out in the middle of nowhere, right? If Ivy’s going to have a passionate fling with the sexiest lady she’s ever met, this is the place to do it.

Ivy couldn’t be happier with the way they spend the day, but when she gets home that night, she turns on the television…and sees Sawyer’s face. Sawyer isn’t just an adventurer, she’s a famous vlogger with legions of fans. And the last thing Ivy needs is another thrill-seeker for a girlfriend.

Can Ivy conquer her fear of exposure and be with this captivating woman, or will Sawyer’s fame be too much for her to take?

The Nature of Love : Contains Two Alone, Rescue Me, and Love Birds. You can also read this for free with Kindle Unlimited!

If you haven’t read my other novellas, getting them in this compilation is a great deal! Also, this is the first time these three novellas will be available in print. The paperback version of The Nature of Love should arrive on Amazon in the next few days 🙂 Here’s what you’ll find in The Nature of Love:

While on a hike deep in the woods, Ivy meets Sawyer, a gorgeous, tree-climbing adventurer…and Ivy can’t resist her allure. Being out in the wilderness means they’ll have plenty of privacy, but what will Ivy do when she finds out that dating Sawyer could drag her even farther into the spotlight?

Rescue Me: Elise Giordano wants an opportunity to impress Sasha, the charismatic leader of the marine animal rescue where Elise volunteers and the woman of Elise’s dreams. Elise never guessed that an entangled mother humpback whale and her calf would provide that opportunity, but when the two women rush to the rescue, a love as deep as the ocean begins to surface.

Love Birds: Alexandria Dunn’s quiet, boring life gets a splash of color when she discovers a love of birds and birdwatching. At her first birdwatching event, Alexandria meets Nell, a beautiful and enthusiastic tour guide. When a series of misfortunes result in Alexandria being the only participant, Nell shows her a romantic afternoon that changes both of their lives.
