Synopsis

 

The last thing she needs after running from one monster is to land in the lair of the Devil.

Twenty-one year old Ember flees her past with soot on her face, ash in her hair, and a promise. She’ll never let another man take away her freedom and treat her like she means nothing.

But that is exactly what Maverick Gunn, leader of the notorious Harbinger’s of Chaos Motorcycle Club seeks to do from the moment his lethal gaze locks on her. He burns her with every look. Every touch. Every word.

Ember’s only hope is to convince him she’s nothing like the woman who blackened his soul before he drags her down into the darkness with him.

 

 

 

Josie's review

 

5 stars

 

 

I am going to be honest, I never read a book from this author before. I stumbled upon teasers from Burning Ember and they had me hooked and I begun to stalk the author’s page. Ms. Briar did an amazing job with the first book in this MC series. I love MC reads, and there is nothing light about that life. Romance and HEA’s are hard to come by. A real MC read is dangerous. It is filled with angst, drama, suspense, some ugly crying, real mean bikers with some dirty mouths and a huge dose of possessiveness. Things I love and that is exactly what we get in this book. I did not expect to feel the way I did. The author took me on an emotional journey with her characters. The story is told in dual POV’s and I loved getting inside two very complexed, tainted and amazing characters.

 

Ember AKA pumpkin AKA Doll has fled from a very abusive, controlling and very dangerous man. Getting away from her prison took so much courage and strength which I admired so much, but it also took Ember down a road of loneliness, poverty, despair and homelessness. I loved this character. She was strong, determined and she was a survivor. While running from her past her fate changes when she meets Lily. Lily belongs to the Harbinger of Chaos MC and she sees something in Ember that makes her want to help her. Ember is in survival mode. She is willing to do anything to have a roof over her head, a safe place to sleep, food and somewhere she can earn money.

 

At first I did not care for Maverick at all. Mav has been betrayed by a woman he thought he loved in the worst way. He no longer does relationships, just the club bunnies. His past has made him angry and the hardened man he is today. When he comes face to face with a red haired beauty who is similar to his ex he does not like it at all. When Maverick looks at Pumpkin he feels things he doesn’t want to feel so instead he decides he is going to make her life miserable at the MC so that she leaves. What he never expected was for Pumpkin to rise at every occasion and for his brothers to become her protector.

 

This relationship was hard to watch unfold. There is an intense chemistry and connection between the two. They both have similar pasts but Mav makes it so hard for Pumpkin and at times it was really painful to read. He only saw his past when he looked at her despite the thoughts and feelings she brought out of him. He finally relents and allows her to stay as a gift for a brother being released from prison where she would later become a club piece, but right from the start he wanted no other brother to touch her.  Just as Mav was hard and cruel so was his jealously and need to keep everyone away from her. Ember felt things for Mav but she never would be a prisoner or a punching bag again for another man. She would do what was needed to survive and then move on.

 

Mav and Pumpkin’s road to love is not an easy one. Mav still has trouble with fully trusting Ember and Ember needs Mav to really see the woman she is and not the woman that broke his heart. When two very dangerous and determined enemies join forces to bring Mav to his knees and bring Ember back to the devil himself, will it be too late for Mav and Ember? Will Mav truly be able to let go of his past and see the real woman in front of him? How much more of Mav’s distrust and cruelty can Ember take?

 

All I can say is this is one book you really want to jump on and experience because it was just that good!

Second Chance

by Allyson Sinclair

Contemporary Romance

 

 

 

 

Synopsis

Anabella Stewart had the perfect marriage, children and a husband who loved her unconditionally or so she thought. She’d built her life around them for ten years until she was blindsided with the truth of who her husband really was, and everything she held dear and believed in evaporated in an instant.

 

Anabella’s heart filled with darkness and the only glimmer of light is the love she holds for her two young daughters. She’s content in her ‘no-one can hurt me life’, it’s controlled, she isolates herself, studies, goes to work and just keeps breathing.

 

A freak accident helps Anabella find her way out of the darkness when she meets Nikolas Turner. After the death of his parents he has a decision to make; return home to England or take over the reins of the family company.

 

As fate, would have it Anabella crashes into Nikolas’ life. She’s everything he thought he didn’t want from a relationship; a single mother who’d depend on him for comfort and support he didn’t know he could give. Being with her means not only loving her but also becoming a father figure to her children.

 

When life offers you a second chance, even when you don’t think you need one, you hold on tight with everything you have.

excerpt

“Feel like going on an adventure with me?”

Being with you is already an adventure.

“Sure.”

“Have you ever been to D’Aguilar National Park?”

“No, I don’t actually go outdoors that much.”

“There’s a five-kilometre hiking track with an incredible view. I thought we could hike together?”

Oh my God, he doesn’t know how clumsy I am! Like, Bella from ‘Twilight’ clumsy.

“Nikolas, that sounds great, but I’m not always good on my feet. Maybe we should do something less dangerous?”

He laughs and raises an eyebrow. “Do you think I would allow any harm to come to you?”

“Ha! You don’t know how bad my version of clumsy is. On Claire’s cross country day, I rolled my ankle on the school oval and that was flat!” I laugh at my own clumsiness.

He reaches over the console for my hand and I let him take it, he raises it to his lips and kisses my knuckles. “I promise I’ll protect you, even from yourself.” He takes his eyes off the road for a moment to look at me. “Trust me, Anabella.”

He has no idea how hard those two words are for me.

The fucking lights. They are all I can remember. Everywhere I turn I see them. They haunt my dreams, and now my reality. She liked the lights. I do remember that. It was part of her life, and in turn a part of mine, until the day I forgot it all.
Weapons. Big or small, they can be anything I need them to be. Unlike people in my life, they are predictable, dependable. Without any effort they can cause so much destruction. Touching them they are slick, smooth, and silent when I demand it. Who wouldn’t find
them beautiful?
Ink. I’ve loved it since I can remember. It defines me. It’s my release. When I feel like I’m about to blow I turn to the needle. It is the only high I need. I brand people. It’s what I do. Kross Brannon is the best there is when it comes to tattoos. My company proves
it.
I never teach. Those that work for me learn from someone else. I work solo. Always have and always will…but then I looked up and saw her, standing in my fucking shop, beautiful, tattooed, and her soul screaming for me to reach out.
That’s the moment everything started falling into place…
I’ve waited my whole life for this moment. Nothing and no one will stand in my way now. I want to be pissed at her, but she’s just given me everything I’ve fucking dreamed of since I was a kid. He’s giving me a chance. I will not let him down.
But then he touched me.
My entire life I’ve been cold, but now a spark has ignited and I’m starting to warm. What does this mean? He can’t know my secrets. It could ruin everything. I want him, but I’ll never give in.
The tug of war inside will never defeat what I want. I don’t care how raw my hands become from the rope. Delta Rohr has never fallen for a man, and I don’t intend to start now.

Most like to think that love and war will never entwine, leaving the two paths separate, but sometimes to find the one worth fighting for you must enter into war. The infamous question will always remain: all is fair in love and war?


Will it always be a myth or will they find out?

 

 

My eyes travel from his lips back to his eyes, locking into place. I hook my thumbs behind the front waistband of my shorts, giving them a prop to avoid an awkward stance, before going for the introduction I couldn’t muster last night. “I’m Delta Rohr, the girl that’s going to be one of the best in a man’s world. Ink is my life. I wear my portfolio on my body. I’m an artist, only I want my canvas to be skin. I want my artwork to be worn. I’ve wanted an opportunity like this for a long time, and I’ll give up anything to get it, but I need the tools to get there. I need the best fucking mentor there is. I need you, Kross.”

He remains staring at me while my intestines start twisting into knots, saying nothing at all. Maybe my answer wasn’t adequate enough. I’m not sure if I should say anything else or leave it at that.


His stance finally breaks and his arms rise and fold over his head, his hands gripping the back collar of his shirt. He pulls it over his head, baring his
torso a few inches at a time until it’s completely off. Oh hell. His body looks
better without clothes than with. He obviously works out, his chiseled form
confirming it. Let’s not forget the ink spread across his chest and running
down both arms. The lower part of his sleeves and the ink that peeks out of his
collar, running up part of his neck, is the only thing I’ve noticed until now.
Now that he’s standing here shirtless. He tosses the shirt over his shoulder,
freeing up his hands.

“What are you doing?”

I immediately notice the silver, square, belt buckle in a dull metal finish, cut out to form a raised skull in the center; my favorite emblem, and the masculine opposite to mine…exactly what he tattooed on my body last night, complete with a pink hair bow. The black, elastic band of his briefs is peeking out of the waistband of his jeans. He works to unbuckle his belt, letting each end hang, before going back for the button. He pops it through the slit and then slides down the zipper, revealing the royal blue underwear hugging his hips. My eyes widen. Is he stripping up here? What the hell is he doing? 

“Kross, what are you doing?” I ask again, needing an answer. My heart rate is beating faster with each movement he makes. 

“Starting part two.”

“Which is?” I’m becoming nervous. Is he just using me for sex? Dammit, I feel so stupid. I actually thought this was a real interview. I should have known this was just a setup. 

“Letting you tattoo my body.”

I regain focus. “Say what?”

“I don’t repeat myself. Listen the first time.” He pushes the band of his underwear down his body, along with the waist of his jeans, leaving them not far above his…

“It’s kind of hard to listen with you stripping naked. You’re a guy and I’m a girl. It’s human nature to look. So sue me.”

He grabs me by the arm and pulls me toward his station. “The second part of this interview is to see you give it a shot.
To me, tattooing is a natural talent. It takes more than the ability to trace
an object to be a good tattooer. An artist is well rounded in all areas: drawing, tracing, visualizing, shading, design and color, all while having a steady hand. You may be good at drawing with a pencil, but it’s a little more difficult with a vibrating gun in your hand puncturing the skin hundreds of times per minute. I’m not wasting my time to make shit more pleasant. I’m making great, flawless.”

He releases my arm and steps over the chair in a straddling stance, drawing my attention to his black, high-top Converse shoes matching my pink ones, before grabbing a thin sheet of paper off the counter space. My nerves are on overdrive now. “I’ve already drawn you out a design that matches the one I tattooed on your pelvis last night, minus the fucking bow. It’s a pretty simple design but a good one. Basic skull and crossbones fit my personality so I’ll deal with it on my body. Wouldn’t be the first version anyway, but since this is your first it’s going somewhere I can cover up if you fuck it up. My sleeves are sacred, my masterpieces. Only the best adds to it. You earn the right to leave your mark as an artist there.”

He pushes his pants down some more, until the top half of his firm ass is bare. If he pushes them down any further I’ll be able to see his dick. Without breaking he applies the transfer of ink from paper to skin below his waistline, and low enough he can cover it by simply buttoning his pants. He cannot possibly expect me to give him a tattoo that close to his dick. Come on…. 

He grabs a pair of black, latex gloves off the tray. It looks like everything is already setup. “If you want to be the best in a man’s world, then you better be serious as fuck about learning and perfecting. There are some that have made it and done so well, but tattooing has always been a man’s art. I’m not showing you how to setup or prep today, because that’s not necessary before you get the job. I looked at your ability to draw when I looked at your body last night. I want to see technique. I’m a hands on learner so that’s how I teach. You have about a two-hour window. All of my artists will be here at three today. That gives me time to clean up after you’re done.”

“So you let everyone interview this way? How do you have any blank skin left?”

A smirk begins to form. “Nope. You’re the first. I don’t normally teach.”

My nerves were at a good five. They were just bumped to ten. “Uh, then why me?”

“I’m feeling giving I guess.” He hands me the gloves and sits down on the chair, then laces his hands behind his head and leans back against the back of the chair. “Tattoo me.” 

I am totally and inevitably fucked…

 

I found books when I was going through a hard time in life. They became my means of escape when things got bad. I realized quickly how much I loved to take a backseat to someone else’s life and watch the journey unfold. That began my journey with books in November of 2012. I constantly had a book open on my Kindle app. Never in a million years would I have imagined myself as a writer, because I never thought I was creative enough. I’m living proof that things will fall into place when they’re meant to be. People will make their way into our lives when we don’t expect it, setting the path for what we are meant to do. Never give up on people. Never stop taking a chance on others. Someone took a chance on trusting me with her work when she didn’t know me from a stranger on the street and gave me the opportunity of a lifetime as our relationship progressed, which led me to editing and writing as well. This is my dream I never knew I had. As soon as I sat down and gave writing a shot, it was like the floodgates opened. Now, I am lost in a world of fiction in my head, new characters constantly screaming for their stories to be told. Continue to dream and to go for them. No one ever found happiness by sitting on the sidelines. Sometimes we have to take risks and put ourselves out there. Thank you for all of your support, and may there be many books to come. XOXO- C

Foreword

 

 

Penning a foreword is something that I can now cross off on my bucket list. This book is a perfect fit for me. Why you ask? My Dad is a Yank, aka American and my Mum is a Limey, aka Brit. Yes, I’m very blessed to have my feet in both worlds. 
 
The co-authored The American and The Brit is seamlessly written and I appreciate this as I’ve collaborated on four books with my son, Adam and can understand how difficult these type projects can be. 
 

Hilarious from start to finish, you will surely be entertained. Phoebe and Liz draw you in from the first page with their relatable situational dilemmas.

 

 

I wish the authors, a real American and a real Brit much success, what am I saying? It will be a success.
 

~ Carol Kunz aka USA Today Bestselling Author Amanda Jason aka the C. in C.A. Kunz

Paxton placed a finger over both my lips and shushed me with a quiet, “Shhh, hush now. I assure you with everything in me that you are the type to be controlled. That’s why you suck my dick. That’s why your legs fall apart whenever I come near you. You’re a slut. My slut. I own you.” His dry, sultry words,  touched my lips while his fingsers slid down the middle of my neck. One straight line. The dry swallow stuck in my chest when his hold over me wrapped gently around my throat. His grip tightened and his lips met mine. “Shhh, don’t talk, baby girl. Turn around and go take a shower like you were told” My eyes cowardly dropped to the floor and I submitted.

I don’t want to be in that box where I can only write one genre. I tend to like my bad boy’s, taboo; touchy subjects that make you want to throw your kindle. Usually at said hot alpha male.

Synopsis

 

For two years Becca Kian has been in an abusive relationship; leaving could prove deadly, but when she’s pushed a step too far, Becca has no choice but to flee. After an accident that leaves her unconscious, Becca wakes to find herself in the cabin of a man as entrancing as he is dangerous. Because this man makes her want to dream — dream of a world where Alex Scar doesn’t exist.

Both Minotaur and human, Aster Tavros is a shifter in hiding. Living in Woodland Creek, he’s made no effort to form relationships; too afraid to allow others to see his true nature. Because when they do; they run, or worse…die. Yet when Becca comes crashing into his life, he ignores every one of his rules. Passion ignites between them, but when secrets and pasts collide, Aster must hide his identity — or reveal his true self, and save Becca, all the while, risking losing her forever…

excerpt
*Copyright Rachel M Raithby – subject to change unedited.

Becca hadn’t had a blessed life. Though recently she thought it was reaching an all-time low. Even being tossed from one foster home to the next her entire childhood, was beginning to seem like heaven compared to the last few months.

Her life drained the very essence from her. Every day she witnessed horrible acts she could never erase from her mind. Becca was trapped, a prisoner, yet her captor didn’t see it as such.

At seventeen Becca had run away from her final foster home; deciding she’d rather chance the streets than live with the foster dad with wandering hands. After a year things began to take there toll, thieving for food wasn’t easy, and no one wanted to employ a homeless woman who’d not even finished school. The day she met Alex Scar was a turning point in her life. At the time she’d thought it was for the better, but how very wrong she’d been.

Alex Scar had many talents. His best though; wearing a mask. Alex Scar could turn from safe, handsome, nice guy to the leader of a drug cartel within seconds. He’d worn his mask for months, luring Becca into his trap. He gave her a home, a job, and he wanted nothing for it in return…well for the first six months at least.

Becca knew she was beautiful…sexy even. When she had nice clothes and a place to live, her dark brown hair glimmered almost black. Her blue eyes shined when she had no worries on her shoulders, and her smile was infectious and easily given. For six months Alex had only been a friend, he’d given her a new life, and not once attempted to want anything more. The night he’d first touched her he’d been gentle and sweet, his kiss had been light, teasing, leaving her wanting more.

I never do this Bec…The girls I help, I never have any intention of wanting anything from them, but you Becca, you are the sweetest of them all…I can’t help myself.

His words, and his smooth tone, had captured Becca in his spell, and for a while she’d been happy. Yet eventually Alex’s mask began to slip. She witnessed glimpses of his real nature, and his real life. By the time Becca wanted out. She’d seen and heard too much. Becca’s only out was death.

So here she was; just twenty and girlfriend to Alex Scar, leader of the drug cartel in Detroit. Alex kept her by his side like a trophy. He knew she hated what he did, and it seemed to only please him more. He loved torturing her mind, loved to make her watch his interrogations. He also enjoyed hitting her when she stepped out of line.

Becca often wondered whether she had a limit. When would the point arrive when she couldn’t take anymore? What would finally make her snap?

“Come here Bec.”

Becca glanced up plastering a smile on her face as she gazed at Alex. There was a new shipment in, and Alex and his crew where sampling the goods. Becca never touched the stuff, and Alex had never forced her too…yet.

“Yes?” she asked sweetly, as she approached. Pulling the hem of her dress down, Becca felt eyes on her. Alex chose her clothes, he told her what to wear.

“Stop fiddling,” Alex scolded, slapping her thigh. “Come, sit on my lap.”

Swallowing her revulsion, Becca complied. She hated nights when Alex got high; he always got too rough.

“My sexy sweet thing,” Alex cooed, taking hold of her breast and squeezing tightly. “Show me how grateful you are Becca.”

Sliding her hands up his body, Becca’s mind went blank as she retreated deep into herself, and performed an act she’d done many times with no thought. She didn’t feel anything when she kissed, and touched Alex Scar. It was like she wasn’t home; she’d left her body, and it acted on its own accord. Becca felt dead on the inside, with each time she died a little more, yet she could see no way out.

Feeling extra hands on her, Becca snapped back to herself and pulled away as Tony, Alex’s right hand man groped her.

“Get off!” Becca yelled, venom in her tone.

Tony looked shocked she’d even spoke. His eyes narrowed, anger filled his features. She wasn’t quick enough to miss his strike, he clipped the side of her face and she fell back onto the floor and scrambled away. Her eyes met Alex’s, pleading him to say something, to stop this, but Alex laughed, delighted with this new game.

“Get back here Bec,” he order patting the hard bulge between his legs.

“What?” Becca whispered, her eyes looking from Tony to Alex. “But I’m yours?”

“Yes you are. I own you Becca, and I want you here on my lap, and you’ll let Tony do as he pleases.”

Her legs moved on their own. Her mind screamed in protest but nothing seemed to respond. They pulled at her, touching her, and stripping her body of her clothes. She felt their damp skin rubbing against her but saw none of it, registered none of it.

Her back met the floor, as Alex loomed above her, ripping the last shred of clothing from her body. A tear rolled from her eye as Tony’s cock hovered above her face.

“Now be a good girl and open up,” Tony sneered.

With one last pleading glance at Alex, Becca complied. I really do have no limit…

The door burst open.

“I’m busy!” Alex growled.

“I’m sorry Boss but this is urgent.”

Alex’s hands dug painfully tight into her thighs. “I’ll finish with you later… Enjoy Tony.”

For one hopeful second Becca had thought she’d been saved. Yet Alex stood, pulled on his jeans and then left, closing her in the room with Tony.

“At last I have you all to myself.” Tony smiled.

Becca snapped. Scrambling away she turned to escape, only to be pulled back. Her head hit the coffee table painfully and the stack of cocaine tumbled to the floor, sending white puffs of clouds into the air.

“Bitch, you’re going to pay for that.”

“No…please.”

Her begging only enticed him more, and as he neared her entrance, Becca turned her head away unable to watch. Her eyes focused on the contents she’d knocked from the coffee table; bags of cocaine, cigarettes and a gun, half hidden under a newspaper.

Becca had always wondered if she had a limit. What vile act would send her over the edge? She knew there was a high probability she’d not leave the warehouse alive, and even if she did, Alex would never stop hunting her, yet her hand clasped the gun. The metal felt oddly right in her hand, her finger found the trigger and as she aimed. Tony laughed not expecting her to shoot, but whether she lived or died, Becca wouldn’t allow herself to be loaned out to Alex’s men…She’d reached her limit, and she fired.

Fallen Crest is back with a vengeance!

 

Samantha, Mason, and Logan are all together and united with one common enemy: Park Sebastian, the king of fraternity douchebags.

 

With professional football scouts eyeing his every move, Mason Kade has to walk the line for the first time in his life. Any move he makes against Sebastian has to be perfect and under the radar. One mistake, and his career is over.

 

Sebastian has other plans. Mason’s career isn’t his target—not even close. Wanting to destroy Mason completely, Sebastian knows he must hit him where it hurts the most: Samantha, who doesn’t give a rat’s ass that she’s the target.

 

Sam is bound and determined to protect Mason herself, no matter the cost, but what if the cost is beyond her imagination? What if this time, the villain wins?

Excerpt

 

I drew one of his fingers into my mouth. My tongue wrapped around it. I wanted to forget about my afternoon and how I was going to handle that situation. I wanted to get lost in his arms.

Seeing what I wanted, Mason tipped us both back, cradling me on his chest as he lay down. I was securely in his arms, and he rolled me over, so he was looming above me. His eyes darkened, holding my gaze before dropping to my lips where a small smile showed, and I let go of his finger. The ache for him already started inside me.

A knowing grin formed on his face, and without saying a word, he slipped from the bed to lock the door and flip the lights off. My heart started pounding. The need for him was rising between my legs, and I licked my lips, watching as he took his shirt off. He was all muscle. I could make out every single one of them as he came back to me. The flames were growing hotter and hotter. I wanted to slide my hands over every inch of him. I wanted to feel his weight on top of me. I wanted to feel him inside me.

I wanted him to break the fucking bed for me.

Teaser

She sank back on top of me. Her hands ran underneath my shirt and slipped up, and I closed my eyes, enjoying the feel of her. They were on me, no one else. I had no reason to be jealous or insecure, but damn, I loved knowing she loved me. I loved that I could run my hand down her arm, and she’d gasp from the sensation, like she did just now. I loved that I could linger right above her shorts with my fingers rubbing the skin underneath her shirt, like she was touching me, and her body would begin to tremble, like she was doing now. I loved that, as I laid her down on the cushions and rose above her, blocking her from any views there could be, my fingers could dip inside her shorts and hover over her opening, and she would arch her back up. She would come alive.

Author Information

 

tijan bioI didn’t begin writing until after undergraduate college. There’d been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can’t blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I’m hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.

excerpt

“How long do you think you can hold out, Mariposa?” I’m teasing her now, no way I’ll attempt to touch her again since she’s told me no.

She shrugs her shoulder and gives me a sly smile. “Can I hold you tonight?” I ask again, switching gears away from my desire to have her sit on my face.

“Please.” She answers.

I hold my hand out to her as I stand and grab her clothes off of the table. I tug her towards my bedroom, turning off lights as we go. I can hear Mia making her way behind us, knowing she will settle down again on her bed in the corner of my room for the night.

“I didn’t pack sleep clothes,” I inform Josie as we step into my room. “I guess you’ll just have to sleep naked.”

She steps away from me and just as I think she’s about to protest, she reaches behind her, lowers the zipper on her skirt, and lets it fall to the ground. She’s facing the bed and the sight of her beautiful back, narrow hips, and smooth legs make me groan.

When she bends over to pick her skirt up off the floor my cock jumps in my pants. Instinctively my hand reaches down and grips it. “That’s fine.” She replies as she walks her skirt to me and drops it on top of her other clothing in my hand.

I growl at her, drop her clothes on the dresser, and pull out a t-shirt. A very large t-shirt. One that ensures nothing will be peeking out once she has it on. “On second thought,” I say as I hand it over to her. She giggles and pulls it on over her head. It almost hits her at her knees. Much better.

She saunters back in front of me and reaches for the buttons on my shirt. “Josie.” I admonish mildly.

“Shhh, Kaleb. I heard what you said earlier.” She reaches up on her tip toes and kisses my chin. “You’re overdressed.”I stand stock still and let her unbutton my shirt. She runs her tiny, warm hands up my stomach and over my pecs, causing my muscles to bunch. I’m thick and hard as steel in my pants, and there’s no sense in even trying to hide it. She knows I want her.

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked

their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have

ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and

education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do

say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered

through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I

absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

 

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children

who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers,

and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

 

Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room,

Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls. All my books are written for

one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my

fans that inspire me to give it my best.”
