Deceptive Truce Now Revealed

December 20, 2023

I cannot tell you how excited I am to share this with all of you. From the first moment I saw this image, I knew we’d found Ezra and oh my does he fit the bill or what?

Hats off to Michelle Lancaster, the photographer, Mitchell Wick, the model, and as always, our goddess of art and covers, Stephanie Heinritz at Vicious Desires Design. *chef’s kiss*

Releasing January 23rd (told you I would move it up as soon as it was ready!)

Remember, this is book 3 of 6 in the Bay Ridge Royals. 

Life has been a series of exquisite disasters…

Do you ever lie to yourself? I do. Making friends has been the cruelest choice I ever inflicted upon myself. I like to say I don’t regret it, and for the most part that’s true.

I resent it.

I despise him because he left me behind, following another battle in this war we’ve been waging. I thought we were partners, best friends, allies, and that he would always have my back as I’ve fought to have his.

I hate her because she’s perfection and everything he’s ever wanted, untouchable, brilliant, and capable. Yet, I want her too. Need her. Still, she gave herself to someone else.

Telling myself one taste would have to be enough even when I knew it never could be is just another deception I sold myself on this trail of disaster.

No matter what I do, I’m not enough for them, for my family, for this world we inhabit. Now—alliances are shifting, and our enemies are closing in.

I know the difference and I know I need to leave them to face it all on their own. That’s the choice I should make. That’s the choice I have to make.

Or at least, that’s the newest lie I tell myself.

DECEPTIVE TRUCE is a full-length mature dark, new adult romance with enemies-to-lovers/love-hate themes. Please be aware some situations may be uncomfortable for readers. Trigger warnings can be found in the foreword should you require them. This is book three in a six book series that is a why choose with multiple new adults exploring and coming to terms with their evolving sexuality, identities, and relationships.

Christmas Comes Early – I’ll Be Home… is here

December 18, 2023

Oh, you have been good or maybe you were perfectly naughty, either way, I’m excited to share that I’ll Be Home… is now available on Kindle, in Kindle Unlimited and in print. It’s the holiday romance you didn’t know you needed or wanted. Even better, it’s a wild romp written with one of my favorite people. Tate James and I really wanted to celebrate holidays right. So what could be better than a dark romance, you know? By the way, it is a dark romance, so be sure to check out the trigger warnings in the foreword.

They say you can never go back…

‘Course, I never wanted to return. It took me years to age out. Once I made it, I took off and never turned around.

Trust me, there were only three reasons I managed to survive there as long as I did and they abandoned me as soon as they were able. I’d like to say I didn’t blame them, but that would be a lie.

I had zero desire to return. Yet here I was, on the road to Northland chasing a story cause my editor told me kids were disappearing… again.

It doesn’t matter what I want, I’m taking the fastest route to the darkest part of my past.

And then I’ll be home…

*Please note this is a reverse harem and the authors suggest you always read the foreword in their books. Contains some dark elements, mature situations, and is definitely intended for 18+.

Fierce Dancer Now Available on Audio!

November 18, 2023

After a much anticipated wait, Fierce Dancer, the 9th and final book in the 82nd Street Vandals series is now available on audio. My hat is off to the entire team at Audio Sorceress for making this happen.

Noel, Brooke, Toby, and Adam are the literal best. Marnye Young and Denise Black are champions. Talk about a labor of love and art. Everyone needs to listen to these books, personally, I feel like it elevates the story. But I might be just a bit biased. *winks*

Also, lest I forget, a huge shoutout to Jeni Cook Wideman who devotes literal hours of her life to proofing these books. It really does take a village! I am very lucky to have such an amazing village. 

For everyone asking, yes, Bay Ridge Royals will be continuing in Audio as well with all our favorites from the 82nd Street Vandals back to reprise the roles they originated. So hold onto your socks, it’s going to be a gorgeous ride. If you’ve finished the 82nd Street Vandals, you can continue Lainey’s story in Shamelessly Loyal, book 1 of the Bay Ridge Royals.

 

Battle Lines are drawn! Bay Ridge Royals New Release

October 17, 2023

Our days are getting shorter here in the Pacific Northwest, the weather is cooler, and the leaves are changing colors and the Bay Ridge Royals are ready to set the world on fire. Battle Lines is book 2 in the six book series and it’s the first full-length novel. While book 1, Shamelessly Loyal was a novella that crossed over with the 82nd Street Vandals, you do not have to read that series to read this one.

Will it enhance the experience? Yes. Required? No. However, should you choose to continue without reading the Vandals, then you just have to be ready for some spoilers for that series. No matter what, this dark, rich world with all of its larger than life characters, secrets, and shenanigans are just waiting to be explored.

No lie, I am so seriously stoked to be here. I will have a story for you when the series is done, but Bay Ridge Royals has been in the planning stages since early 2021 and I am over the moon to be able to bring these characters into their own series.

Finally, the next book in the series, Deceptive Truce, is listed for a May 2024 release. Do not panic. I pushed it out to give myself some breathing room to write. When the book is complete, I will move the release date up. I typically release a book every three to four months, so don’t worry! I’ll keep you updated!

In the meanwhile, enjoy Lainey, Milo, Adam, Ezra, and a very special surprise in Battle Lines. I can’t wait to hear what you think.

xoxo

Cardinal Sins Now Complete in Audio as well!

September 20, 2023

Now complete in all formats, Cardinal Sins is ready for you… like dark romance, strong female heroine, and three guys who will do anything for her? Boy do I have the series for you.

With the release of Last Word on audio, we’re wrapping up the Cardinal Sins in audio. Writing this series was a real pleasure. Be mindful of triggers included in the series. Very much inspired by both our love of Criminal Minds and S.T. Abby’s The Mindf*ck Series, we were super stoked to share this with our readers and luckily, Blake is just my kind of crazy and was all in for writing it with me.

Mayhem is here! Shamelessly Loyal for Bay Ridge Royals

September 1, 2023

Happy Mayhem Day!

From the moment Lainey walked onto the page in the 82nd Street Vandals, I knew she was going to be one of my favorites. I wasn’t wrong. I am so stoked to celebrate the release of Shamelessly Loyal to kick off the Bay Ridge Royals. This first book is a “crossover” novella taking us into the viewpoints of Lainey and Milo and what was going on with them during the events of Dirty Devil and Brutal Fighter. While you do not need to read the Vandals prior to reading this novella, being familiar will enhance the material. This novella may also contain spoilers for the first few Vandals books as well.

Just something to keep in mind. The next book in the series, Battle Lines, releases next month and will be the first of five more (probably chonky) books. *winks* I can’t wait to hear what you think. As always, check the trigger warnings in the foreword.

Buckle up, this ride is just getting started…

Print book pending, it has been uploaded.
