“Take off your pants.” She made a motion toward the wool slacks that showed every inch of his hard on. It made her mouth water, but she wouldn’t be putting him in her mouth until he’d spent a good long time on his knees. For now, she wanted to take a good look at what she’d bought and paid for with one night—and a piece of her soul.
“You first.”
She shook her head. “That’s not how this is going to go. Not until I say. Now. Take. Off. Your. Pants.”
His mouth kicked up in a wicked grin that made her skin flush and her panties soak even more. Her very expensive panties that made her feel too vulnerable for his eyes just yet. He paused, but then he obeyed.
“Your wish.” He pulled off his shirt with one hand, over the back. Fucked.
“If my wish was my command, your pants would be off and you would be on your fucking knees thanking me for showing up here.” Her voiced cracked a little on the edges, and she hoped that he wouldn’t notice.
To find out what happens next, grab the book at any of the e-tailers below:

DUSK UNTIL DAWN in less than 2 Weeks!

Sensual woman kissing her husband

Dusk Until Dawn is coming in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS!!!!! Some early reviews are already coming in, and apparently Javi and Maya are hitting readers in the feels, which is like catnip for a writer.

I’ve started posting teasers over on my Facebook Page–which you should totally follow if you don’t, and I thought I’d post last week’s #TeaserTuesday post here:

“This isn’t about getting my dick wet, Maya.”
“How do I know that?”
“Because, if it was, I wouldn’t consider a ten thousand dollar suit a small price to pay for seeing you smile with satisfaction.”
She laughed. “I’m sorry about the suit.”
He shook his head and a few strands of the hair she’d pulled out of his ponytail hit his face. “No, you’re not. But I don’t want you to be sorry. I want you to say yes.”
“Why? Give me one good reason.” She didn’t know whether she was rooting for him to fail or rooting for him to succeed.
He cocked his head to one side and licked his bottom lip. Lech. “Remember what I said when I promised to let you go?”
Of course she did. Nothing about that conversation had faded from her memory. “That this doesn’t mean that we’re not still friends.”
“We are still friends, Maya. A ruined suit and the way I want to fuck you six ways until next week doesn’t change that. I haven’t had anything like our friendship in a long time, and I miss you.”

If you want to find out what happens when Javi and Maya try to rekindle their friendship, make sure you pre-order Dusk Until Dawn today!


BREAK OF DAY Cover Reveal!!!!!

Break of Day FINAL

Can you believe I was able to keep that little beauty to myself for WEEKS AND WEEKS!? I thought I as going to burst open when I saw how gorgeous and perfect Carla and Jonah’s cover was. This book…I didn’t know if I was going to like Carla when I started it. If you’ve read STROKE OF MIDNIGHT, you know that she’s kind of a brat, and I wasn’t sure I could make myself (or readers) love her. But, I do love her, and I hope you will too! The secret is the hero, Jonah Kane. He pulls on all of Carla’s strings. When they get together, it is FIRE!!!!

But don’t take my word for it, make sure this book lands on your e-readers at midnight on September 12, 2017 (so close, yet so far!)

One Mistake
Carla Hernandez needs to drop off the glamorous Miami grid. Her aunt’s house in Havana seems the perfect place to get over being dumped by her fiancé—and figure out why she keeps messing up her life. But photojournalist Jonah Kane’s unexpected presence is one sizzling mistake she’s hungry to make.
One Temptation
Jonah thought his favorite Cuban refuge would help him get some badly-needed peace. Still, he’s ridden out way worse than the tropical storm trapping him with Carla. And he’s going to handle this spoiled little princess on his own dominant, seductive terms just until the storm is over. Too bad this sexy wild card only makes him only want more. And more . . .
No Restraints Now Carla’s back home—but not quite alone. When her baby is born, she’s going to raise it on her own, no matter how much she still burns for Jonah. But Jonah can’t get over her irrepressible spirit or the passion they shared. And trying to walk away is only making things too hot to resist . . .




2016 Favorites

book-drive-1Okay, so I know I’m leaving books I liked off this list. I’m probably even forgetting to include books I LOVED on this list, but the cool kids are making lists of books they loved during the suckiest year of them all, 2016.

These are the books that have inspired me over the past years as I was getting ready to debut STROKE OF MIDNIGHT, which comes out on January 3, 2017. I should also be writing my own book right now, so it seems sensible to spend an hour doing this.

Here’s my list:

Best Dirty Talk (And Dirty Action TBH):

I don’t think I need to elaborate too much with these. Let me just say this: Tessa needs to write me a boyfriend who will actually come to life outside my head. And James, the hero in THE WEDDING PACT, is as close as I’ll get to experiencing one of those gifs of Charlie Hunnam banging someone on SoA as I’ll get in this lifetime.

TOO HOT TO HANDLE by Tessa Bailey

THE WEDDING PACT by Katee Robert

Best Slow Burn:

I’m not usually one for a slow-burn romance, but I picked up both of these books based on recommendations from Tessa Bailey, and I wasn’t sorry. Both of these books kept me up way too late. Why? It’s the voice and the heroes. Debut author, Sally Thorne, is so good that it makes me angry. Her POV is so close that you feel every iota of the heroine’s angst about loving to hate her annoying (but sexy) co-worker. And the hero is THE WALL OF WINNIPEG AND ME is a vegan football player with a protective streak as long as you have to wait until they get together.

THE HATING GAME by Sally Thorne


Best Virgin Hero

Charlotte Stein is one of the best writers out there. If you’re not reading her, I’m not sure that we can be friends. She made a former bully hero work for me, and I was bullied. She’s fucking magical. Read this book.

NEVER SWEETER by Charlotte Stein

Best Rockers and Bikers and Criminals (Oh my!)

I don’t know what it says about me that this year’s favorite books are dominated by an assortment of badass heroines, bikers, con artists, straight-up convicts, and rockers. But I would want all of these heroines on my side in a knife fight, and heroes who don’t give a fuck are really ringing my bell right now. And Molly “M.” O’Keefe could write about aliens doing butt stuff, and I would read it–the fact that she wrote about a biker kidnapped by a stripper is simply an up sell.


IDOL by Kristen Callihan


(Note: Kasey and I share an agent, but I wouldn’t put her on this list if I didn’t LURVE this book.)

DEVIL’S HONOR by Megan Crane

THE PLAYER by Kresley Cole

ALL CHAINED UP by Sophie Jordan

 Books I Forgot But Can’t Not Mention
 UNBREAK MY HEART by Nicole Jaquelyn
I met Nicole at RT and she gave me an ARC of this book. I stayed in bed reading it the next day during the conference, pretty much sobbing the whole time.
I can’t pick a favorite out of this series, so I’m including a link to the boxed set that comes out on January 3. Read all of them, no need to thank me. You’re welcome.
