    The Valentines are OUT!

    Out of Kindle Unlimited that is. It wasn’t doing so well in the program and I think it’s because I had the wrong covers at first and then I kept changing them. But the main reason is I suck at  new release launches. Anyway, if you’ve been reading my post for a while or you’re on my list, then I know that you’re into a well-told story, that has the power to take you away. You’re not looking to have your vagina validated or the whole world shoved into your box.  For instance, million dollar weddings that read like backyard barbecues. Or college educated heroines who read like they’ve never…

    Update: New Release Title Changes!

    I have few updates for you. First, The Billionaire Hercules Valentine and I, Serendipity is now Tempting Fate, Hercules Valentine And I.

    The Billionaire Hercules Valentine and I – Serendipity is now live!

    I am so happy to bring you The Billionaire Hercules Valentine and I (Book 1): Serendipity. This is the first book of my new series. In my opinion, its my best contemporary romance series yet. I have no doubt you’ll be unable to put down these tales of forbidden lovers, featuring the sort of yummy book boyfriends you always get from me. Remember that this series is in Kindle Unlimited, which means it has to be exclusive to Amazon. You have 3 days to purchase the book at all other retail stores though. So get your copy and start indulging in The Billionaire Hercules Valentine and I (Book 1): Serendipity…

    Saturday musing or musing on a Saturday

    I’m thinking about romance and writing heroes. A memory came to mind. Years ago, when I was very young and in the Army I was stationed in a unit where I was the only female for a while. And I worked in the motor pool. And there was a guy I worked with I can’t remember his name but me being a city slicker and desert rat from Southern California, I can recall that he had a pronounced accent. It could’ve been Southern—I think it was. He was thin, short, and had blonde hair. And he always looked as though his uniform was wearing him. But he was a mechanic…
