Good news!

I'm excited to announce that "No Sweeter Love," a contemporary novella, will be published with Ellora's Cave Blush line.
I'm equal parts ecstatic and overwhelmed. I have lots to do and lots to share so I hope you'll continue to join me here where we can cry, laugh, scream and whine together as I take a new and unfamiliar path in my writing career.
Eeek! : )
I promise to give you more details soon. Until then, here's a blurb for "No Sweeter Love."


Welcome to Union
Population: 994
Town motto: Where no secret goes untold

His father's death forces Dr. Ryan Williams to return to the home – and the woman – he'd left behind ten years earlier.
Ryan knows it's best to avoid Union sweetheart and police officer Emily Winters during his visit.
But how?
Stuck in this small town, fighting an attraction that hasn't diminished over time, the sparks are unavoidable – and so are the rumors.
The same rumors that made him leave Union in the first place...

Experience taught Emily to keep her guard – and her panties – up. Until Ryan returns as suddenly as he left, tempting her with promises she already knows he can't keep.
Or can he?
This new adult Ryan is one capable of forever and, God-willing, forgiveness.
Because even as they learn to trust and love each other again, Emily knows that once she reveals her secret, heartbreak is inevitable.
