Chilling with Max available now

Another story in the Love Off Leash series is live now. Chilling with Max at Amazon and other vendors soon. To be followed in the Christmas season by Snow Angels with Bear.

Love dogs and smoking hot men? The Love Off Leash series is for you. Different authors. Unrelated stories. Shared theme of new love and pets.

High tension meets laid back in a collision of opposites.

Grant Edgerton hasn’t had free day in years. From overachieving student to workaholic real estate developer in a high-pressure firm, he’s striven for success to the point of developing a stomach ulcer. When he literally crashes into a dog walker and his charges, it’s time to let loose the hounds of change. After failing to land a very important client, Grant takes an afternoon to play.

Max Thompson rolls through life’s curves with easy grace. Dog walking supplements his gigs as a musician, and he’s content with his easy come, easy go existence. He’s fluid to the point of not standing firm for anything, until an eye-opening encounter with an uptight businessman shakes his cool.

As lust stirs, then love grows, Grant begins to reevaluate what it really means to be successful in life. And as Max teaches Grant to chill, he learns some things are worth making an effort to hold on to.

Check Out The Summer of ’77

This new novel took a couple of years to write, with interruptions. Revisiting my ’70s youth was wonderful, plotting a murder mystery–not so easy! I hope that readers find their way to this book and enjoy it, even if it’s not their usual genre.

It’s the last summer before high school, and Rachel Walsh is tired of being the “good girl.” During a late-night bike ride back from a forbidden party, she sees a shadowy man dumping a tarp-wrapped bundle in a roadside ditch. When she returns to investigate the next day, the bundle is gone. The news soon reports a pattern of missing girls and Rachel is haunted by the fear she witnessed the bitter end of one of them.

After confiding in her coworker Carl, a scifi nerd who may have a crush on her, Rachel discovers a clue that shines a dark spotlight on her safe little world. She grows suspicious of several trusted adults and investigates them. But playing junior detective could be a deadly game if a murderer learns Rachel saw him dump a body.

During this sultry summer of Star Wars in a small Ohio town, Rachael loses her longtime best friend to a cooler crowd, starts her first real job, makes new friends, and learns the adults in her life aren’t infallible and danger lurks even in her safe cocoon.

The Masterpiece Available Now

My new release is a retelling of the Pygmalion/My Fair Lady tale. In ancient Greek mythology, a sculptor, Pygmalion fell in love with one of his creations which then came to life. George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 play was named after that mythological character, and later Pygmalion was transformed into the delightful musical we all know and love. Unless, of course, you despise musicals.

I enjoyed taking the basic elements of the story and giving them a spin to create something of my own. Hope readers will enjoy The Masterpiece and the little Easter eggs planted throughout the book.

Built from the bottom up: one perfect gentleman.

Man about town Arthur Lawton spends his days pursuing entertainment while shoeshine Joe Sprat labors to better his family’s lives. When an argument about nature versus nurture sparks a wager, Arthur swears to a friend he can turn this working man into a gentleman who will pass at a society function.

Joe is happy to participate in the experiment for a fee but receives more than he bargained for after moving into Lawton’s house. Arthur is determined Joe won’t merely wear a veneer of sophistication but educates him in every way. As he creates his new and improved man, Arthur grows more deeply infatuated with him, while Joe falls equally hard for his charismatic mentor.

Underneath a growing friendship, desire simmers and one day explodes. After their relationship escalates, the pair exists in a dream bubble until the threat of exposure sharply reminds them they belong in different worlds. When the ball is over, each must resume his own life, changed by their encounter but destined for different courses.

Find out if love is strong enough to bridge the gap between peer and pauper in this twist on the tale of My Fair Lady.

Love Off Leash Series Launches Now

My story, Caring for Riggs, and Summer Devon’s story, Hot Under the Collar, launch our Love Off Leash series. We plan to write more and have a promise from Eli Easton to join in on this multi-author venture. Love dogs and smoking hot men? The Love Off Leash series is for you. Different authors. Unrelated stories. Shared theme of new love and pets.

Love, loss and finding a forever home.

After years abroad, Kyle Skelton returns to Chicago to plan his grandfather’s funeral. Weighed down by guilt about neglecting the prickly old man who once looked after him, Kyle is determined to find a good home for Gramps’s senior dog. The last thing he needs as he confronts his complicated past is the distraction of the handsome next door neighbor who’s been taking care of Riggs.

Darrell Baines is prepared to despise his neighbor’s grandson on sight. He believes this stranger is only interested in valuable things Vince may have left behind. But after witnessing the renewed bond between Kyle and Riggs and learning more about the unhappy teenager who fled Chicago years earlier,  Darrell’s hard stance softens. It’s easier to forgive when Kyle is heaping blame on himself.

Darrell is almost too comfortable in his quiet routine, while Kyle has never found a place that felt like home.  As these opposites walk their dogs together, unexpected friendship grows. A late night adventure adds passionate fuel to the fire, but Kyle is only passing through so a chance for anything more than a fling seems impossible.

When Kyle’s never-met father arrives for the funeral and Rigg’s health takes a turn for the worse, Kyle’s emotional turmoil reaches critical mass. Will his fragile new bond with Darrell be the powerful lifeline he has always needed?

Attorney Sam Trevisani never thought he’d play the bad guy, but now his job makes him the enemy of every dog owner in town—and whenever he meets his main opponent, Dan Bailey, the vet gives him the evil eye. Tired of playing for the wrong side, Sam has to find a solution. Maybe the tempting Dr. Bailey can help him find a solution for his restless need for change. Or maybe it’s his attraction to the vet that pushes Sam to pay a late-night visit.

 

Tired of town politics and manipulative games, Dan has no interest in helping the flashy lawyer. Yet Sam’s dogged interest in him proves oddly appealing. Dan reluctantly allows the attractive lawyer into his house, and sparks fly. Sam doesn’t mind hookups, but Dan doesn’t do them–yet in one night, they both change their minds.

 

Determined to keep Dan from running away from something promising between them, Sam has to get past his attorney uncle, Dan’s pack of misfit dogs, and a powerful but unpleasant client who could end not only the town’s chance for a dog park but any chance of romance between the lawyer and the vet.
