“I still
love you, but more like the way I love my sister.” Those were the words that crushed all of Grace’s hopes and dreams in one foul swoop. Her life was put on hold and after nine months of waiting around, she found out the truth. Kevin was a liar and nothing he had said to her was ever the truth. True love couldn’t be real, because she had never known how it felt to be loved.
Waiting for her life to change she decided to take a leap into the big unknown, take a new job in London and make that trip to LA without Kevin or his extra baggage. She was not looking for love, but it found her, she was not looking for him, but she found him and bumping into business tycoon, Alec Richards’ breakfast and knocking it across the restaurant floor was one of the best things to happen to her, even if at the time she didn’t know it.

“Maybe I am your Kryptonite.” He smiled slightly, his warm brown eyes seem to dance in the sun.

“Or I am yours,” I replied.

Whether she wants to or not, the forces seem to be working in her favour and the holiday she started out alone, soon turns into an adventure of the heart. Discovering things about herself she never knew existed. Alec Richards has woken her beaten and battered heart and brought it back to life. Everything tells her it is too soon, that she could get hurt again, but her heart has a mind of its own…

After all, if a heart that has been battered and broken is so ready to love again, then I have no choice but to trust it.

Will the flames flicker out when they return to London, or will the oils that had soothed her, fuel the fire that burned so brightly on the other side of the pond? One thing she knows for sure, Alec Richards has changed her life, whether he is there forever or for a fleeting moment, she will never be the same again.

A tale of two different worlds, two different lives being burst open and entwining together, Grace is certain that Alec is her happy ever after and that no matter what happens, he owns her heart now, completely.

Cruel Winter, the sexy sequel to Summer Rain is out now. I am so happy to be able to continue this story and to be perfectly honest with you, I love Kelsey and Jeremy so much, I am having a hard time letting them go. Summer Rain was such a hit, I couldn't wait to release the sequel.

Here is the link to Amazon for the Kindle copy.

You didn't honestly think I was done with Kelsey and Jeremy, did you?

Jeremy is slogging his guts out at work and Kelsey is taking care of their son, who is extremely sick and the strain takes its toll. She adores her husband and son, but she feels she is losing a battle she can't win and Jeremy feels he can do nothing right. A misunderstanding could tear them apart once more, how many more bumps are there in the road for this couple?

Ben Marshall thought he was clever, when he duped gang lord Jock Mackenzie into cleaning the serial number off of ten million pounds worth of diamonds, just so that he could take them and leave, he discovered he was wrong. 

Dragging his girlfriend Lisa with him they hit the road and run, they run until they get to her home town of Bournemouth. They lie low for a few days before hopping a ferry to Jersey so they can escape England and Jock forever.

Hot on their trail is Vic and Mason, two retired Heavies looking to make a quick bob on what they thought was going to be an easy job. They also thought wrong.

Chasing the diamonds to the USA, they are not comfortable when everything around them seems to be getting on their nerves, proving that maybe they are just too old for this job.

A fast paced story that will have you cheering on the bad guys, who aren't actually the bad guys after all. Spanning across the pond and filled with wit and humour. People have died because of these diamonds, all they can do is run.

I'd like you to meet Aiden Kramer. An eighteen year old school graduate who is about to embark on the biggest lesson he can take in life, love. Leaving school a virgin only seemed to bother his best friend, who had told most of the senior class in an attempt to get him laid before the summer ended. Only Aiden wasn't interested, it didn't seem that important, not when his mother was sat in a hospice in what they call a Waking Coma, which means that her eyes are open, but there is no one home. So why would getting laid be important at all. His father was always too busy to be there for him and his older sister had her own life, so he ha Joel and his zombie mother, he didn't need anything else. At least, that's what he told himself to get through the day.


At his graduation ceremony his History Rachel Keller takes pity on the fact that his father wasn't there for him and invites him out to dinner. Aiden accepts and after a wonderful evening he kisses her goodnight, a moment of insanity raged his body and risked a slapped face, but it was so worth it. The he runs away, running away from her, afraid of her rejection and of her wrath. When he gets home, she is waiting for him...


Aside from a steamy relationship flourishing between them, aside from the lovers spats that keep getting in the way, or her reluctance to tell him how she feels about him, aside from all of that, the story takes a serious turn when Samantha, Aiden's older sister goes missing after a huge fight with her long term boyfriend.


Follow Aiden on this incredible journey, learning that life isn't cookie cutter perfect and mistakes can ruin everything. Lessons need to be learned.


Available on all Amazon sites in Kindle and Paperback
