I've spent many years crafting stories
in my brain. Finally, after the encouragement from those that love and support
me the most, I put my first story out by self-publishing in 2013.
That first milestone created a writing
monster in me that couldn't be stopped and filled a void I cannot explain. Each
story is a true gift from my heart and a sacrifice from my soul, since I find
it difficult to let the characters go.
At home in Texas, my husband and I
share our life with children that mean the world to us and include a couple of
fur babies. When we aren't busy watching sports and betting on the game, we are
entertaining with friends.
I do have a writing cave, but
honestly, most of my work comes from the kitchen, the heartbeat of any home.
Since noise doesn't disturb me too much when writing, I can write and keep the
pulse on the family at the same time. And... Possibly enjoy my favorite, sinful
treat... Cookie dough!
The writer-reader world is my
lifeline. I'm addicted and each time I get a message from a reader, I'm
thrilled. There's quite a few stories planned for the next several months. I'm
hoping the readers fall in love with my next series, The Creek Series. A story
that is guaranteed to bring out all the emotions.
If you've read my books, thank you! It
truly means the world.
Business magnate William Stonewell has everything a man could want: a thriving business, loads of money, and cars that are the envy of his friends. The only thing that’s missing is a woman to share his life with. Someone he can love. The only problem is that he’s just not very good at approaching women.
Alexandra Tyler is a bit of a free spirit. She loves her life and lives every day to the fullest; however, she finds herself longing to be loved and to love someone in return. Her co-workers laugh at the fact that she is still a virgin, but she doesn’t care. She knows that she will only give it up to the man she will marry someday, and not before.
One night out on the town changes the course of their lives. William never imagined that meeting someone in a bar could result in such temptation, but there is just something about Alexandra that gets to him. With sparks flying all around them, William is intrigued to see where this could go. Stepping out of his comfort zone, he pursues Alexandra ruthlessly. In his quest for love he realizes that she is one of his employees, and that is a line he has never crossed before. But he wants to cross it now. Badly. Will William and Alexandra give in to their forbidden lust? Or will that lust turn fatal?

“You are so beautiful.” He breathed against her lips. “I want to be inside of you. Yet at the same time I want to push all your buttons and savor the sweet taste of your body.”
Alexandra moaned at the way his voice became a devilish British purr, giving away the heat that he felt inside of him. Smiling slyly, Alexandra pushed his shirt off of his shoulders and slowly slid her hand down his chest and torso, stopping at his waist. Giving him a chaste kiss on his lips, she started to toy with his belt buckle. Opening the belt, she slowly unbuttoned and unzipped William’s jeans, making him groan.
As she slid his jeans down, William was able to feel her hot breath against the part of his cock that was bare due to the hole of his boxers. Sucking in a breath to control himself, William watched as Alexandra slowly released him.

I live in New England with my young family. I’m a stay at home mom to two very active children. For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book. When I’m not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids. In my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.
I asked her to make a choice and deep down, I knew what it would be – our lives didn't go together, and they still don’t. She’s the head of a giant corporation and I’m a musician who spends months at a time on the road. We exist in different worlds and I can accept that because I’m not the boy I once was, I’m not the broken soul I once was either.
But the world is forever changing, and our professional worlds are merging. Suddenly, we’re keeping similar company. Suddenly, we’re back in each other’s orbit. Things have changed. I have changed. Now, I’m a man who knows what he wants. Now, I’m a man who won’t be playing any games. Now, I’m a man who’ll take what’s mine, and I won’t apologise – not to a single soul.
This is happening. I don’t care anymore. Abigail belongs with me – out in the open, in secret…up against the dressing room door…she belongs with me.
I’m taking what’s mine, and I won’t be sharing.
“I want to have our story on stage, Seb. I think back, and sometimes it feels so long ago that I can’t remember it clearly. I need it back. I need those memories to be alive and vivid.”
“And what do you think will happen when people see it? Don't you think they’ll figure out it’s about us?”
“It doesn't say they’re stepsiblings. It’s about fighting families.”
“The answer is no, Abi. They are my songs and this is Thom’s production. You don’t get a say. If you want to withdraw your funding, go for it. I’ll fucking fund it myself.”
“I don’t want to do that. I want to be a part of this.”
Her hands are back on her hips again, and her brow is creased from her exasperation. My thumb itches to smooth out the line in the centre. I drop my gaze to try and cancel out my thoughts. But all I end up doing is slowly raking my gaze down the length of her body. I feel my body stir. I’m not doing this again. I’m not going through this fight.
My gaze drifts back to her eyes and locks for a moment before I speak. “Take off your dress.”
Her perfectly plump lips part in surprise and her cheeks immediately flush. At the same time, she appears confused. “Excuse me?”
“Take off your dress. Lie it over that chair,” I command, indicating the sitting area in Andrew’s office.
“I don’t…” she starts, her flush creeping to her chest as her breasts rise and fall from her rapid breathing.
I step toward her, slowly walking around her until I’m standing against her back, whispering in her ear. Her breath catches when I begin to speak.
“I’m not doing this with you again, Abi. I’m not having you come back into my life, showing up wherever I am, only to tell me that I still can’t have you. I’m not fighting what’s between us because you’re worried about what the world might think. I don’t give a fuck about the world. I don’t give a fuck about your commitments. What I give a fuck about is what I want. And right now...” I lower my mouth to the curve of her neck and lightly brush my lips along its curve until I return to her ear. “I want you to take off this dress and hang it over the back of that chair.”
She gasps and trembles, and I reach up to undo her zip to halfway, exposing the black silk of her bra, gently running my fingers over her exposed skin. “I also care about what you want, Abi. I know you want this. You wouldn't be back in my life if it weren't to satisfy a craving. I’m going to give it to you, Abi. I’m going to bend you over that desk, and I’m going to take you while people wait for us in a conference room down the hall. And when it’s over, you can leave, or you can come back for more. It’s up to you. But I won’t fight again, Abi. I’ll be honest about what I want. Will you?”
She sucks in her breath and steps away from me, my cock strains against the zip of my jeans as my eyes see the milky white skin through her open dress. She reaches behind her and holds it in place so it won’t fall then she turns around to face me. So beautiful and flushed. I wonder if she's going to go through with this.
