New Cover for More Than a Threat!

New Cover AND FREE on KindleUnlimited

Y’all! I am so excited to share this new, and freaking amazing, cover with you! More Than a Threat released March of 2017 and has done AWESOME. But when I decided to list this series on KU I thought the cover needed a little refreshing and BOOM here we are. OMG I love it. It’s so perfect for Weston right? (SWOONING)
Oh and the best part More Than a Risk is on KU too!
I’ve just made your Saturday great, haven’t I 🙂
Click here to check it out!
Oh and I updated the blurb – all kinds of exciting changes happening around here.

A steamy action-packed bodyguard romance series. 

My rules keep clients safe.
Stay close and don’t fall for me.
It’s never been an issue… until her.
Now I’m reminding myself of my own da*n rules.
Keeping Kate safe is my job.
She’s stubborn as he##.
Pushes back at every command and direction.
Until the night when the tables turn and she realizes she needs me to stay alive.
And I realize she’s more than a job.
The threat is relentless.
Being an Army Ranger prepared me for anything.
I’m ready for this fight.
But when her life in their grasp I’m proven how wrong I am.

I’m sure those of you who have already read MTAT and MTAR are staring at this saying, “Hey LADY! Stop messing with the books and get to writing the final book in the series!”
(Bows my head in shame)
Yeah, I know. I’m a little behind on that one. I have it all thought out and it’s going to be EPIC. But I had a couple other characters pop up in my head at the same time and well….they shoved our fiesty ER Doc and hunky bodyguard aside. BUT……..I hope to have it written by the end of the summer. I’ve decided to take the summer off to spend with my 5yo so, hopefully, I’ll have a lot more spare time to write.

So there you have it. You will have the third book in the series by end of 2020…hahaha just kidding. Hopefully, fingers crossed, by the end of the year. Oh and Weston’s novella. It’s amazing. That guy is so sensitive and has a dirty, dirty a$$ mind. I love him.

I seriously love this cover 🙂





Release Day is HERE!!!

Y’all! It’s finally here!


Release day for A Covert Affair and I’ve been DYING for you to meet these two. Agent Lucia Rizzo is the badass with a vulnerable side only Sr. Officer Gabe Wilcox can draw out. Through their story, each grows through weakness to be stronger in the end. This couple will have you smiling, sweating, and laughing through each encounter. The hunt for the mole is ongoing in the background but their back and forth, along with Tony, makes the book a one sit read.

Below is the caption at the beginning of the book. It’s from the mole’s point of view towards the end of the story. It gives you a sense of the intensity that is to come.

It’s her fault. She shouldn’t have messed in our shit. I don’t care if it is her job. She says she’s the best but by the shocked look on her face she sure as hell didn’t see me coming.
They’ll call it a betrayal, maybe even label me a traitor but that’s not how I saw it. It’s survival of the fittest out here and the fittest, strongest I am not. But the smartest, hell fucking yes. I’ve played this information game for far too long, made too much money for this bitch to screw it up now.
So when she wakes up, if she wakes up, I’ll make sure she knows this is her fault. If I had any heart left I’d feel bad for handing her over to the pieces of shit I call my business partners.
To hell with the consequences, I’m already in too deep anyway.
Come on, Agent Rizzo.
Wake up.
I don’t want you to miss this.

You still have a chance to get this intense, steamy read for ONLY .99 cents! Price will jump on Friday so pick it up today.

Until next time, happy reading my friends!

A mole within the SEALs and I’m the one to find him. Simple for someone with my ability to read through lies. Everything was laid out, we had a plan. A good plan. Go in undercover as a reporter, gather intel, identify the mole and come home. But it didn’t turn out that way. Not even close. Of course, the Sr. Officer over the platoon in question is a former one night stand who became way too clingy. And to top it off his best friend, and my escort around the base is someone whom I desperately want clinging, without clothes would be preferred. The number of obstacles in this operation is too many to count but I have to find the mole, no matter what, my reputation within the CIA depends on it.

Who would have thought a quick-witted, hotshot CIA agent would be my kryptonite. But is she ever. From the moment, she walked into CO’s office I was hooked. She a drug and I’m the willing addict doing anything and everything just to get one more hit of her. She says we are a bad idea, that it would complicate things, what does she know. We could be great together. We will be great together. All I have to do is convince her we can play and get the job done too. I want the mole caught but I might want her just as bad.

A Covert Affair – Coming March 2018!!

Happy (almost) New Year everyone!

2017 was a fun year for me with the release of the first two books of my first EVER series, More Than a Threat, plus starting on the third book and novella in the series, and finishing a new stand-alone romantic suspense, A Covert Affair coming March 2018. On top of my writing, I work full time as a recruiter for a large restaurant chain here in Dallas, I’m a mom, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. Needless to say, 2017 has been busy but I wouldn’t change it for anything.

A few things I’m looking forward to in 2018 are: release of A Covert Affair (and you loving it, duh), finishing More Than a Hope and Weston’s novella (haven’t figured out that title just yet) and starting on another standalone romantic suspense which has been brewing in my mind the past few months. On the personal side, 2018 will bring my son starting kindergarten, celebrating 14 years of marriage, and many, many fun trips away and to the land, we purchased earlier this year.

I have a great life and I really do appreciate you going through this writing adventure with me! It’s been challenging but I plan to keep the amazing books coming for years to come. On that note….below is a brief overview of my upcoming release A Covert Affair.

Add A Covert Affair to your TBR list TODAY!

Career-focused CIA Agent Lucia Rizzo has one hard and fast rule she’s lived
by since joining the agency four years ago: No getting involved with
coworkers. This black and white rule fades to gray during her assignment
with the Navy SEALs.

While working to uncover a mole amongst the SEALs, she finds herself
partnering with a former one night stand and his best friend. Navy SEAL
Sr. Officer Gabriel Wilcox isn’t technically a coworker but, if the agency
has its way, he will be in the very near future.

Gabe Wilcox is prime marketing material for the SEALs. Blonde hair, blue
eyes, strong enough to toss her curvy figure around with ease…oh and those
damn dimples. It’s lust at first sight when Gabe and Lucia meet, but there
are hesitations on both sides.

The physical pull and infectious banter quickly prove to be too much, even
for these strong-willed operators, consequences are damned!

After weeks of research and reconnaissance missions, Agent Rizzo
will have to make her choice. Heart with Gabe or career with the CIA…
she’ll have to choose which future she wants unless the mole she’s been
after makes the decision for her.

A Covert Affair is an HEA, stand-alone contemporary romantic suspense.

A Heartfelt Thank You

As the reviews for More Than a Risk continue to come in I feel like I need to send a quick thank you note to all those who have read and commented on my newest novel.

This is what your reviews have done for me:

  • Learned readers DO NOT like being surprised by a cliffhanger. I purposefully changed my original planned ending of MTAR so it wouldn’t be as ‘cliffy’ as More Than a Threat.
  • Made me very aware of all the amazing bloggers out there who read and write detailed reviews just because they love to read. No payment. Sometimes not even a thank you. Which brings me to my next point…
  • I’m not technical, my best friend had to set up my facebook page, so knowing how to tag, hashtag, etc to make sure the blogger I’m thanking knows I’m thanking them has been a challenge. Especially since I work about 50 hours a week and have to play catch up at night. I try to express my gratitude to each individual person who writes a review I just hope you can actually see it 🙂
  • Some people will like my writing and some people won’t which is okay. Not everyone is going to love my story either and that is okay. But what I love about each person who has written a review gives at least a few things they enjoyed. That means the world to me. That and when you don’t like something you tell me exactly why which only makes my next book better – stronger.

So this is my blanket thank you note in case I accidentally miss thanking you personally. You taking the time to read my books AND write a review that helps shape me as an author…I don’t even have the words. What you do by writing those reviews isn’t just so other people can know to buy it or not, it’s for me. And I realize that. And I thank you for that. You are making me better. YOU!

I’m grateful. I’m overwhelmed by the reviews that say they love my writing. I’m blessed to be surrounded by readers and bloggers who are trying to help me craft my writing style.

Thank you, readers.

Thank you, bloggers.



More Than a Risk is LIVE!

More Than a Risk

Publication Date: August 17, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Suspense

Purchase: Amazon | iBooks | NookGoogle Play | Kobo

Is a life worth living if you don’t risk it all for the one you love?

Shot and left for dead, Dr. Kate Wheeler doesn’t know what to expect when she wakes in a hospital room, especially she sees him. It would take a lot to win her back after abandoning her when she needed him most, which he is prepared to do, but Kate has never been one to give in easily. A surprise visit from a friend pulls Kate into a deadly game of cat and mouse with a local business man, full of dark secrets.

It’s up to Kate to bring this man down knowing her father, the Dallas DA, won’t prosecute without evidence; evidence she is willing to do anything to get. With the love of her life shadowing her every move, will Kate risk losing him to save the lives of others?

When Kate’s charade takes a dangerous turn will Weston be enough to bring her back from the edge, or is it too late for it to matter? Hearts and lives are at risk and Kate and Weston’s fiery relationship returns in this second book of the More Than a Threat series.

More Than a Threat

In the face of danger, the thin line between love and hate is blurred and rules are broken. But are these two prepared to face the consequences?

Dr. Kate Wheeler is an independent, feisty emergency medicine doctor with a perfect life, or at least that’s what everyone sees from the outside. Her world is turned upside down when she is forced to allow twenty-four-seven protection, disrupting her independent lifestyle leaving Kate to adjust, or not. She finds herself in uncharted territory as she balances a new love interest at work, never being alone and dodging multiple attempts on her life. If it weren’t for her two best friends by her side the stress would be too much, even for her to handle.

Her newly assigned security detail, Casey Weston, is harsh, dismissive, and overbearing. His sexy, strong body and bad boy tattoos are just the exterior to this thoughtful man who has secrets of his own. As he works to keep Kate at arm’s length he finds himself equally frustrated and fascinated by this woman who pushes his boundaries. Weston’s rules are intense and focused solely on keeping her alive. But as time goes on will his better judgement falter?

Tempers and emotions flare when these two headstrong individuals go head to head, both used to having their own way and unwilling…or too afraid…to give an inch.

With Kate’s life in the crosshairs and Weston determined to protect her, will their future be happily ever after or torn apart by the same threat that brought them together?

The grocery store watching a tired mother wrangle her misbehaving kids – the look of hopelessness and love in the eyes. 

A music festive where a certain song, the lyrics speaks right into your heart. 

The news when something so unspeakable happens you can’t help but cry from the ache of sadness in your soul. 

Inspiration comes from everywhere, you just have to look for it. I read once that writers don’t write from experience but from empathy. And I 100% agree. Watching certain things or listening to soul crushing music makes me see a story behind it. Makes me see the characters and feel their personality. 

I always thought other people could do this, but when I started writing and my friends started reading what I wrote….I realized quickly profound empathy is a gift. Not everyone can walk into a room and gauge what’s someone’s thinking with a simple glance. Read their body laguage. The look behind their eyes. 

So here is where I find inspiration. You. You living your life. And me feeling it.
