I love fairy tales. From Snow White to Little Red Riding Hood to the Princess and The Frog, I love them all. 🙂 What I love most about them is their happy endings. Yes, it’s true that real life doesn’t always have a happy ending. But in fairy tales you’re guaranteed an awesome ending. The princess always gets her prince charming. The road to this ending isn’t always pretty. But the bumpier the ride, the more you appreciate the victory!

~In my New Adult Romance – The Makeover – my main character is learning the hard way that real life is nothing like fairy tales.~

April is secretly in love with her boss. But she values their friendship too much to even dwell on the feelings she has for him. She’s content with simply being his secretary. But things change when he asks her to accompany him to a dinner with a few of his colleagues.

She begins to think that maybe he see’s her as more than a secretary. That hope is crushed when she learns the real reason behind his invitation. He only invited her because he wanted to prove a point to his friends. Now April has her own point to prove, and her two best friends, who calls themselves her fairy godmothers, are going to help her do it.


The Makeover: Coming September 29th. (It’s available now for pre-order.)


Revenge is a dish best served cold… while wearing heels.

April has just learned the real reason behind her boss’ impromptu dinner invitation. He only invited her to dinner with his colleagues to prove a point: that he can show up at an event with a plain Jane and still be considered ‘the man’. She expected better from him and had secretly hoped that one day their friendship would grow into something deeper. Now she knows she will always just be his ‘nerdy secretary’ to him.

But her two best friends won’t let her wallow in her pain. They convince her to give Dr. Stewart a dose of his own medicine. The plan: show up at the dinner looking irresistible and prove to her boss that even nerd girls can be sexy. But first she has to replace her unattractive business suits with something sexier and more revealing. It’s time for a makeover.

Dr. Chad Stewart would never ‘really’ date his secretary. She was too good, to pure for someone as jaded as himself. It didn’t matter that he was half in love with her. But when he needed an ‘average date’ for a dinner party she was the first person he turned to. He thought his secretary was the perfect choice until he arrived to find her looking like his wildest fantasy. But now she knows the real reason for his invite and he can see in her eyes how hurt she is.

Can Chad convince her to forgive him for hurting her or will she walk out of his life… taking his heart with her?

Also available for pre-order is my holiday romance: Christmas Confusion.


Bailey Cooper has fallen in love – sadly the man she’s in love with already has a man. Sounds complicated doesn’t it? ~

Bailey Cooper is very much attracted to her neighbor Max Davis. Unfortunately for Bailey, Greg – Max’s lover is slowly becoming one of Bailey’s best friends. Bailey’s emotions are torn. She adores Greg’s friendship while at the same time she craves Max’s touch.

What is a girl to do when she ‘thinks’ the man she’s in love with is in love with someone else?

Max Davis and his baby brother Greg Davis are co-owners of the apartment building they live in. Max has fallen for his tenant, Bailey, but she avoids and ignores all of his advances. It doesn’t take long for him to become suspicious of the friendship blooming between Greg and Bailey. He believes Bailey has a crush on his brother but Max wants his shy little neighbor all to himself. Now he has to think of ways to keep Bailey and Greg apart which is ridiculous because Greg isn’t even in to women. Time to break that news to his neighbor and hope it causes her attention to swing his way.

Will a holiday weekend full of chaos, confusion and a little bit of charm finally get Bailey and Max on the right track? Or will a few innocent caresses lead to more Christmas confusion?

    My favorite is Aladdin. To me, it is exotic and there is nothing like a “street rat” aiming high like a “princess”. 😉
    Thank you for the opportunity to read one of your stories.
