Tour Signups: WITH GOOD BEHAVIOR Re-Release #romance #suspense

As I make solid progress on my eighth novel, romantic suspense Twin Sacrifice, I’m excited to re-release the book that started my author journey.

We launch WITH GOOD BEHAVIOR (Conduct #1) on August 14, 2017.


We’ve tightened and re-edited my debut novel, a parolee love story:

In the midst of organized crime and dim hopes of redemption, can love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a naval officer who sacrificed himself to protect his uncle, finding that love seems unlikely.

As they start their lives over in Chicago, both fight family influences and run as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside their parole officer’s door, attraction sparks. Too bad a hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but prove deadly to them both.


Would you like to help spread the word? Book Partners in Crime hosts a tour 8/14 – 8/18 HERE

September is for Sequels #Giveaway Hop

Thanks to Lisa Loves Literature and I Am a Reader for hosting this giveaway.


Do you love sequels and series? I do. We grow to love characters in the first novel, and it’s a special treat to follow their journey in a sequel.

When I wrote my debut novel With Good Behavior, I didn’t intend to write a series. But I quickly realized that limiting the story to one novel would cut short the adventures I wanted to have with my characters. So I wrote a trilogy: The Conduct Series.

I’m giving away the ebook of Bad Behavior (The Conduct Series #2). Can two cons find happiness after the happily ever after? Sometimes it isn’t pretty, but true love with persevere. I’m a psychologist and this romantic suspense story features quite a few couples counseling sessions.

Enter on the Rafflecopter. With Good Behavior (The Conduct Series #1) is on sale for only $.99 HERE.

And don’t forget to enter to win a print copy of my new NA volleyball romance Blocked to the right!

Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

Thanks to Mary and Kathy for hosting this hop!


I love America. One thing that makes America great is FREEDOM. Not only freedom to read, but freedom to voice dissenting views on politics and religion.

Americans’ fierce political divide inspired my fifth novel Blocked. It’s a college volleyball romance between two individuals with polar opposite philosophies about the way the world should work:


College freshman Lucia Ramirez has a secret crush on Dane Monroe. He’s a tall drink of water — blond, brash, and one hell of a volleyball player. Hijole. Lucia hopes her volleyball scholarship to his school will make him notice her.

Too bad what’s noticeable is Dane’s obvious hatred for Lucia. Her family’s politics contradict everything he stands for. And politics are front and center in both their families. Dane’s mother is about to face Lucia’s father in the race for US President.

When Secret Service throws them together, Dane can’t deny his frustrating attraction to Lucia’s athletic curves and sweet faith in the world. Amid the intense pressure of college athletics and presidential politics, can opposites not just attract, but overcome overwhelming odds to be together? Or do their differences block their match from the start?


Blocked will launch before the midterm elections in November of 2014! Add it to your shelf now to catch the upcoming cover reveal.
