“Really? What were you doing about twenty minutes ago? And don’t tell me you were thinking, I know what your ‘thinking’ face is. Besides, we’re leaving Saturday, and we are staying at the hotel until then so it’s not like I am going to get a chance at him anyway. I was just commenting on how cute he is.” Illana folded her arms over her chest and stuck her chin out at Sydney. “At least I’m honest about it, unlike some people.”

“What do you want me to say?” Sydney threw her arms up in frustration. “Yes, I think Zeke is hot, like burn-me-at-the-stake kind of hot. The man brought me a perfect cup of coffee while I was sleeping. Who does that? I almost spilled my coffee this afternoon when Betty told me he called her to find out how I like my coffee. So, yeah, I want him. How could I not? I mean, the only thing that would make him sexier is a gold-hoop earring! My heart does jumping jacks whenever he walks into the room,” At Illana’s wide-eyed look, Sydney said, “and he’s standing right behind me, isn’t he?”

“Yeah, but don’t stop now, especially if you’re going to do jumping jacks,” Zeke said, leaning against the door jam and wearing a very satisfied grin. 


a wedding in ruby lake #2


A Wedding in Ruby Lake finds Sydney Myers and Zeke Greyson planning the perfect wedding, only to receive several unexpected, but not unwanted, houseguests. Illana Garet, Sydney’s city-savvy best friend, decides to come rather unexpectedly as does Zeke’s friend Tyler Shepard. They both arrive just in time to be embroiled into a new threat which proves to be far more dangerous than anyone at first had believed. The attraction between Alex, Zeke’s brother, and Illana deepens and Illana finds it hard to keep her well-maintained defenses in place. Annie “Attila the bun” Greyson is also back, but with a few surprises of her own.

From the meddling ladies at the local coffee shop, the Stay a While, to the machinations of a psychopath, A Wedding in Ruby Lake is full of ups and downs, twists and turns, and a few new characters to get to know. Join the Ruby Lake gang as they find out, mostly the hard way, that sometimes walls need to be torn down in order for a better foundation to be built.

Illana walked quickly into her room and grabbed her black clutch purse, opening it to drop her cell phone in it. She checked her hair, red tipped today, and makeup one last time in the mirror above the dresser and then walked out the door, pulling it shut quietly so as not to wake the other houseguest. Turning around, she ran smack into his chest.

“Ow, hi, I didn’t hear you get up. Did we wake you?” she asked, her face turning pink as she looked at Tyler.

“No, I’ve been up for hours actually,” Tyler said, crossing his arms and leaning against the wall. “Just so you know, my heart has already been spoken for. But if it wasn’t, you’d be very fun to chase…and catch.”

Illana felt a pang of disappointment, and a wave of relief. “Ha, like you’d catch me to begin with. I never date men who are prettier than me.”



stay a while in ruby lake #3


After a shooting incident—which left Sydney Greyson and her new sister-in-law, Annie Greyson, injured—the residents of Ruby Lake now face more difficulties than ever before. Sydney is left trying to navigate a new marriage and the upcoming arrival of her twins, while dealing with the fear that shadows her every waking moment. Annie is coming to terms with a life drastically different than the one she had hoped for, and makes some painful decisions regarding who will be in her life and who she must let go. Illana Garet will have to make some tough choices, and will gain and lose much during the process. Meanwhile, the women at the local coffee shop, the Stay a While, will do everything in their power to keep everyone’s spirits up, amid much laughter and love.

None of the members of the close-knit group in Ruby Lake will be left unscathed in the upcoming events that will shape them all. Come with them to celebrate the joys and grieve the losses that touch us all. Join them to find out why so many choose to Stay a While in Ruby Lake.

“Stop yelling, I’m awake, for goodness sake,” Diana said, pulling her fancy new earbuds out of her ears.

Illana sat down, one hand on her chest. “You usually hear the door open, your face was so peaceful, I thought…”

Diana put a hand on Illana’s knee. “I know what you thought, and it is coming. I hope you don’t do that when I do go. When I go home, there won’t be any more pain. You must be brave, my girl, you must. There are so many things I want to say, do, see with you. I want to dance, I want to sing more songs, but we are running out of time. I want to say I love you a thousand more times, so much so it will soak into your skin and stain it. So you will have it forever.”

Is this going to be a series? If so, when can we expect more?
I didn’t plan for Diesel to be a series, but, I have toyed with the idea of a prequel. I've gotten questions from readers about how Diesel got her name, how Bain and Diesel became so close, and how Diesel has built the empire that is Eden. I think it would be fun to share her history.  In the meantime, keep an eye out for Tied, an erotic romance and the first book of the Reign Series. Reagan and Caleb will be coming out soon!

Rachel lifted her face and pressed a kiss to her favorite arm her spot. “Devin, all of these years, I’ve been trying so hard to replace you, to make my mind forget by filling it with…men. But, every time, Dev. Every single time, I was disappointed. No one can ever be you because you are the only one for me. And to answer your question, yes. I’m more than okay. That wasn’t just sex, Devin. That was you, bringing me back to life. I want to do that over, and over and over again. And next time,” she rolled over to face him, a glint in her eye. “I want it like I know you wanted to do it this time. Hard, fast, and in whatever position you want it. We had some fabulous times together. Let’s do that again.” “I want nothing more than to do it all,” Devin said, his voice low. “But don’t mistake what just happened for me just being gentle on you. I wanted to make love to you, to show you what you mean to me. I can tell you all day long, but I wanted you to feel it; feel me. My heart is beating only for you. My body is yours. I love you, Rachel.” She climbed back on top of him, pressing her body against him. “Devin,” she said, her face even with his. Pressing kisses to his eyes, nose, then lips, her body started shaking. Why was this so hard for her? She knew it like she knew her own name, but saying it was so difficult for her. “I…” She dipped her head down and kissed his ear, running her tongue along it, then his neck. When goose bumps broke out on his body, she grinned against his neck. Going back to his lips, she put her hands against his face and looked at him in the eyes. “I love your eyes,” she whispered. “And your face. God help me, that body is to die for. But Devin?” “Yes.” “What I really love?” Rachel paused, willing her body to stop quivering. “Is you. I always have.” There, that wasn’t so bad. “I have since the night I met you, and I’ve never stopped. All this time, all these years, it’s only been you for me, Dev. I know we have shit to work through. But, I love you. I do. I don’t think there will ever be a moment where I’m not completely and totally in love with you.”
Review by Gia:
Reaching Rachel was a great read.  It is the second book in the Living Again series.  It's can read as a standalone.  I have not read the first one, Living Again, and was not lost.  It does have characters from Living Again and mentions things that happen in the first book.  Reaching Rachel is Rachel and Devi's story.   
This book came with the following disclaimer:  **Disclaimer:** This book contains difficult topics that may be hard for some readers and is suggested for a mature audience only. It contains strong language, sexual situations, abuse, and other content that may be problematic for some to read. Please keep this in mind when choosing to read this book.  That kinda of scared me a little but don't let it scare you off from reading the book.  There is abuse in the story but it fits perfectly into the story and make it an emotional read.
Devin and Rachel are each others love of their lives.  Something happens to push them apart and they both move to different places.  In the beginning we are not really told what pushed them apart.  I thought I had it figured out but I didn't.  When Devin and Rachel finally cross path again, it's not in the ideal situation. 
Reaching Rachel was a wonderful story about finding the love of your life again and dealing with the past.  It's an emotional roller coaster but very worth the ride.

Review by Tabitha

Book Synopsis:

Kendal Moore and Jax Parker met when they were eighteen. Two years later, they're together and very much in love. At the age of twenty Kendal finds out that she is pregnant, she knows she has to make the right choice. Her Boyfriend, Jax is in an up and coming rock band, Decoy. Kendal knows that if she keeps the baby Jax will do right by her and support her all the way. But she loves Jax too much to let him give up on his band and their dream to stardom. So Kendal makes the hard choice to leave Jax, keeping the baby a secret.

Rockstar Daddy takes place four years after Kendal left Jax. Kendal is a hard working mum to three and a half year old Finley and Jax is a huge rock star. Read Rockstar Daddy to follow Kendal and Jax's journey. Will Jax and Kendal meet again and will Jax find out he has a son?

"He doesn't know who his dad is."
He frowns at me. "Do you know?"
I can't believe he just asked me that! What the fuck? "Fuck you Jax. Fuck you!"
I slam the door shut and march up to my garden gate. I can hear Jax get out of his car and run up to me, but right now, I don't want to look at him.. Fucking cheeky bastard. I feel him lightly grab my elbow. "Kendal, I'm sorry." I just stand still waiting for him to let me go.

Rockstars Girl(DECOY #2)

After finding each other after four years, Jax has found out the truth that he's Finley's dad. Even though Jax is angry with Kendal for keeping him away from his son, he still wants Kendal back. In Jax's eyes Kendal has always been his. He will have her back, even if that means having a fight in the middle of a club.

Kendal knows she loves Jax but she doesn't know if she should tell him or not. She doesn't want Finley confused. Jax knows that Kendal loves him and after telling her, he thought Kendal would confess too. Jax knows just the way to get her to admit to her true feelings. Surely getting Kendal hot and sweaty and on the verse of an orgasm will do the trick.

Join Kendal and Jax to see if they can finally be together again. Amongst the paparazzi, concerts and annoying ex partner can they find their happiness? Read Rockstar's Girl to find out.

If you haven't read Rockstar's Daddy you will need to, before you read Rockstar's Girl.

On the night of Dawn's sixteenth birthday, she witnesses a crime she can't turn her back on, and the decisions she makes that night will change her life forever.
Never having been confronted with such violence, Dawn turns to a mysterious and beautiful boy named Angelo, only she can't remember what happens that night.

Why is Angelo acting so weird around Bonita? Are they together? Are they really only friends?
Angelo may be trouble, but Dawn can't ignore her feelings for him. Dawn is at a crossroads. Should she choose love? Or friendship? Once Dawn finally finds the courage to choose, she thinks the drama is over. But Dawn wasn't expecting her choices to have such dire consequences.
Do you believe in love at first sight? But can one trust someone blindly? Can love overcome all the obstacles?
Is friendship just the beginning of love?

“Don’t cry, honey. Everything will be all right. You’re safe now,” Mom said to me and kissed my forehead. She was stronger than I thought because she was doing a good job of keeping herself calm. Dad, on the other hand, was showing his emotions. Tears were pouring down his face when he took my right hand in both of his. Dad and I don't do much talking, but we unfailingly understand what's going on with each other and he instinctively feels it when I require his opinion. Yes, yes, you could call me a Daddy's girl, and I wouldn’t deny it. “Dad, please don’t cry. I’m alright. Mom, where’s Nate? I want to see him,” I whispered.
