MIDSUMMER SUSPENSE: New Release, Sale, & Pre-order

BEAUTY is now available everywhere in ebook and paperback!

Awkward, wild child Bryar Rosings was raised in the country by her aunts, isolated from the world at large. Her birth family remains a mystery to her, secrets kept hid…den away to prevent a dangerous foe from locating her. Still she longs for a life outside of Midsummer and finally plans to make her big getaway just as soon as she has the money saved up. It’s not like there’s anything else keeping her there.


Troubled pop star Sean Philip Sawyer needs a break from life as much as from his career. A quiet town like Midsummer, outside the usual vacation season, seems like the perfect place to forget his past and ignore his future. A chance encounter at a late night beach party, however, turns up the one thing he never thought he’d find: a woman who doesn’t recognize him. Bryar arouses and fascinates him in turn, stirring hope for a future without fame.

But a chance video going viral kicks into motion a decades’ old grudge that threatens not only their love but their lives. As a mysterious, powerful criminal known as The Dragon rises, Bryar’s dark past could spell their end unless Sawyer can save them both.

(51K-word/150-ish pages short novel; standalone, following Cinders [2014], interracial erotic romantic-suspense, loosely based on Sleeping Beauty)

Freebies! Discounts! And NEWS!

First, Near to You–my debut contemp erotic romance novella–is temporarily FREE on Amazon. Now through Friday, you can download it freely. Head here. For the next few months it’s exclusively on Amazon–sorry about that, but it’s the only way I could do the freebie through them.

Next!  The first Stirling Falls book, Wild Horses, is temporarily FREE on AllRomanceeBooks. This will only be for a short while to promote Sympathy for the Devil, which is discounted by 25% at ARe as well.

Finally, I’m just about done Cats in Heat (Cats & Conjure #1)–it’ll be to my editor by the end of the week. I’m aiming for an October 25th release date. When it’s up for preorder, I’ll post.

Well, it’s been a crazy busy few days, and now it’s back to work for me. I hope you pick up some freebies and, if you think about it, please spread the word to your friends!
