Binding Vows Cover Reveal (Now Available for Preorder)

I’m thrilled to announce that Binding Vows will be released on Nov. 26th!!

And here is the lovely cover…

Binding Vows cover

After finishing the first draft of this book, I decided that it actually worked better as Book 1  in the series. I can’t go into details about why that is without giving away parts of the story, so I’ll leave it at that (a more detailed explanation for this change is in the Author’s Notes at the end of Binding Vows).

If you’ve already read Binding Choice, no worries—they are both designed to be read as stand-alones as well, and the order in which they are read is not crucial.

So here’s the blurb and pre-order links:

Binding Vows: Binding Love #1

Prudence Parker seems like a got-it-all-together young woman, but under the surface she has her share of issues and personal demons—from hating her name to trying to control the “beast” inside her that compels her to seek out men who make lousy, and sometimes downright dangerous, romantic partners.

Discovering she’s pregnant by an abusive ex-fiancé solves one issue, a particularly pushy biological clock. But then the s.o.b. files for custody.

Her platonic friend from childhood suggests they get married, in name only. While this may help her legal case, it adds other complications. And her ex is not giving up. He wants the baby.

Why is this self-centered man so obsessed with fatherhood, to the point where he will do anything? Even frame her for murder… or worse.

WARNING: This book contains graphic sexual scenes (including some BDSM), and some graphic violence that may be triggering.

Rebranding/renaming the Ripples of Evil series

I’m thrilled to announce new covers for James and Carrie’s story. And with the cover change also the title was changed.

The original titles and covers seemed to be too much horror rather than romantic suspense, so with the help of my wonderful cover designer, Melinda VanLone, we’ve rebranded them.

Ripples of Evil is now Payback, and Backlash of Evil is just Backlash. Tada!

Payback cover

Payback will re-release on January 16th!

But if you’ve already read Ripples, it’s the same story, so hold onto your hats for the release of the next book in the series. Backlash will be coming out on or around January 29th!!

Backlash cover

I’m so excited about this story. My early readers say it kept them on the edge of their seats.

Book 3 in the “Unintended Consequences” series will be Backfire, and it will feature James’s friend, Mary. I hope to have it out by Spring, along with the next book in the Binding Love series.

Thanks so much for your support!

RIPPLES of EVIL, a Romantic Suspense Novella

With strange fainting spells rattling James Fitzgerald’s sense of identity and complicating his acting career, he seeks solace at his country home in Virginia, once owned by his parents. But instead of a relaxing getaway with his closest friends, he walks into a bloodbath. And a cryptic message points to him as the killer.

Carrie Johnson has hidden herself away in northern Virginia’s woods to escape an abusive husband. But her attempts to stay isolated from society are confounded by her attraction to her only neighbor, part-time resident James Fitzgerald.

Virtually under house arrest and struggling to resist his growing attraction to Carrie, James distracts himself by investigating his parents’ backgrounds, seeking an explanation for the fainting spells. Instead, he discovers some shocking truths about his family and himself and ends up wondering if he should have let sleeping ghosts lie.

This story is exclusively available to my newsletter subscribers, and there will be two more stories in this trilogy.

book cover

Erica has sworn off of relationships and moved to Maryland for a new start after the death of her mother and the end of a disastrous love affair. But she soon finds it’s lonely with her only true friend over a hundred miles away.

Hoping to cultivate some female companionship, she allows herself to be dragged to a Valentine’s Day party by a coworker. But instead of making new female friends, she meets two young men, both of whom pursue her.

Why do I always fall for the bad boys? Erica wonders as she contemplates her dilemma. And what a delicious dilemma it is, especially since Jules, the sweet one, isn’t pressuring her to make a decision.

Beautiful, blue-eyed Jules who adores her. And the dark, devilish Drew, whose flirtations with bondage stoke her inner fire like nothing ever has before.

Why can’t she enjoy both men for a while longer? And so she does, until things start going wrong.

Horribly, horribly wrong.
