Author Update Sunday April 16, 2023!

Once Upon A One Night Stand

Releasing Soon!


Xena St. James always plays it safe.
Not only is Lynx Grove anatomically perfect, but he’s Manhattan’s most eligible billionaire bachelor, and according to Xena’s cousin, he’s a perfect gentleman. On paper, a one-night stand with Lynx Grove is a safe bet, right?
Prince Charming quickly turns into a frog, dropping a barrage of commitment-phobic bombs which should’ve sent Xena running for the hills. But Lynx is an expert lover, and that’s how her safe decision morphs into a reckless night of passionate lovemaking.
To distance herself from their thrilling one-night stand, Xena vows to leave Lynx in her dust. Oddly, he keeps showing up at her lowest moments, offering a helping hand. But Xena won’t easily let down her guard. She knows Lynx is a heartbreak waiting to happen.
Lynx Grove isn’t looking for love. But there’s something about Xena St. James that dissolves his defenses. Maybe that’s why he offered her a job and insisted she becomes his roommate.

Lynx knows he’s being reckless, and Xena’s wise to be cautious. He doesn’t do vanilla relationships. But could his beautiful and exciting new employee chip away at his resolve one encounter at a time?

I thought I’d start with a BANG. Hence, the description for my new book that’s scheduled to release within ten days! Yikes!


I’m trying not to feel overwhelmed about the upcoming release date. I’m taking it one day at a time.


Once Upon A One-Night Stand is my first new release in eight months. I’m pleased about taking the time to truly craft the story I wanted to tell. I’ve voiced before that I had rushed to the finish line in the past. I decided to stop doing that.


Also, I commissioned a cover from one of the best designers out there. So far it’s gorgeous and captures the story perfectly, but it’s not yet finalized. 


And I have some goodies for you today, and more to come before release day!

Here are the links:

Link to Audio Clip


As I said, I still have more goodies planned.


I really want to give away a signed paperback copy or two or three.


Also, maybe a few more audio clips. I must be careful because I only use Lynx’s voice strategically. If I post too many, then I’ll give away the story.


Xena wrote and sang a song over and over and over again after her one-night stand with Lynx. Want to see it?


You’ll have to wait until I drop another Goodie!


I don’t want to drag this update on and on. But I do want to inform you that at the moment ALL the Lord Brothers of Manhattan are available wherever ebooks are sold. And Crossing the Line is Free!


On April 8th I republished a more readable and dynamic version of Crossing the Line and I’m starting to see the fruits of my labor. The read-through has dramatically improved because the story is way better. And… I added a sex scene! Because it just needed it! I was going through a lot when I wrote this book initially. Well, that’s over. I’m back! LOL!


The newest version should be available at all ebook retail outlets except Amazon. I haven’t requested the update yet. I’ll do it this week and let you know when the update is complete. If you want to read it now, reach out to Amazon and ask them to delete the old copy so that you can repurchase the new one for free. 


I can’t promise they will remain out of Kindle Unlimited. Next Friday, I’ll reassess and then update you on Sunday.

Alright! And that’s all folks. This is my second to last task of the day. Yay! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!


Much Love,
