I’ve had a blast collaborating with my author friends Candace Shaw and Delaney Diamond to bring you our new book series – The Bennett Triplets – which is now available! The triplets, Mason, Harper and Cameron, own the hottest night club in Atlanta. While overseeing the operations of Club Masquerade, they each find love when they least expect.
You don’t want to miss out on this series! NOTE: The stories take place at the same time and can be read in any order.
Not only are the books available, but we have a fun scavenger hunt giveaway too! But first, here’s another little peek at my contribution to the series – A PASSIONATE KISS.
About A Passionate Kiss
Retired Marine, Mason Bennett, has two goals: adjust to civilian life and keep drama out of it. His focus is on his role as part-owner, along with his siblings, of Atlanta’s hottest nightclub. However, his attention shifts when the woman he has loved like a sister reenters his life and thoughts of a passionate kiss they shared hijacks his mind. Their connection is explosive. Feelings he’s tried to deny come to the forefront, and he’s tempted to do something he thought he would never do—cross that line from friends to lovers.
TV news anchor, London Alexander, is back home in Atlanta and ready to start a new chapter in her life. This time she hopes her future includes Mason, the man she has loved forever. She’s ready to step over the forbidden line that he’s drawn in their relationship.
Will taking a chance on love lead to a happily-ever-after? Or will risking their friendship leave them both with broken hearts?
“Did I tell you how beautiful you looked tonight?”
“You might have mentioned it a time or two.”
They stood there, staring into each other’s eyes, and London wondered what he was thinking. She knew he wasn’t planning to change his mind about their next steps—they both were more than ready—but she wasn’t sure what to make of his hesitation.
“God, you mean so much to me.” His voice was thick with emotion.
Her body tightened with desire. “I feel the same about you.”
It seemed he wanted to say more and opened his mouth, but closed it just as fast. Sometimes she didn’t know what to make of him, but right now was not one of those times. The love shining in his eyes was so intense, London could feel it deep in her soul. He didn’t need to say anything more.
She stepped out of his hold and reached for the zipper of her dress, but Mason pulled her back to him.
“I’ll take care of that for you.” His voice was low and sexy, his warm breath a feather against her neck. “I’ve been waiting all night to get you out of this dress.”

NEGOTIATING FOR LOVE – Giveaway ends February 28, 2016
Master carpenter, Martina “MJ” Jenkins, has built plenty of structures in her day, but none as sturdy as the walls she’s built around her heart. After crossing paths with a sexy U.S. Senator, with gorgeous brown eyes and a seductive smile, her resolve to stay unattached, crumbles. Martina is determined to steer clear, but the Senator’s kisses are too delicious to resist.
Third generation U.S. Senator, Paul Kendricks, faithfully represents his state and is loyal to the family’s political legacy. Still he yearns for a wife, children, and a new career far away from the political arena. Too bad the object of his desire is the one woman who wants nothing to do with commitment. But the sparks that fly between them can’t be ignored.
As Paul chips away at the wall Martina has built, can he convince her to put her fears aside and open her heart to love?

MODEL ATTRACTION – Giveaway ends March 7, 2016
Desire is more than skin deep…
When an international modeling opportunity called, Janna Morgan answered. The past nine years have brought her fame, fortune and supermodel status, but they haven’t lessened her regret at leaving her high school sweetheart behind. A chance encounter proves that Austin Reynolds definitely hasn’t forgiven her. But it also becomes clear that some flames just grow hotter with time…
The handsome real estate mogul has one broken engagement on his résumé, but Janna was the only one to ever steal his heart. Their incredible connection reignites an undeniable passion in them both, and workaholic Austin rediscovers his lighter side. But soon another can’t-refuse offer beckons Janna overseas. Will it be déjà vu…or is their love finally ready for the spotlight?

Wow! It has been three years since I published my first book! I can’t believe how fast the time has gone, but what an AWESOME three years!
When thinking about this milestone in my life, I couldn’t help but think about a quote I once saw that said “Stop waiting for things to happen. Go out and make them happen.” Those words along with the encouragement from a couple of my author friends is what made me take that first step to self-publishing. And taking those first steps to self-publishing led to an opportunity to publish with a traditional publisher.
Like I said, it’s been an awesome three years! Eleven books (published) and three writing awards later, I can honestly say that my writing journey has exceeded my expectations! And of course I didn’t get to this point without help from my author friends, critique partners, loyal readers, as well as family and friends who support my work. Thank you all! I so appreciate you!
For those of you who are new to my blog, below are a few posts that have captured some of the highlights of my writing journey. Feel free to check them out.
ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY
Now, in celebration of these amazing three years, I thought I’d do a giveaway. Here’s what you can win:
First Place – $20 Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card and an autographed copy of one of my books (winner’s choice) – U.S. entrants only AND you have to be a subscriber to my blog, mailing list or Facebook page to be eligible for the first place prize.
Second Place – $10 Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card AND an e-copy of one of my books (winner’s choice) – Open to U.S. AND International entrants
HOW TO ENTER:
Below (in the comments section) name one of your favorite characters from any one of MY books -include the title of that book, and tell why they are your favorite character. No more than two sentences please.
Friday, May 8, 2015 at 11:59pm EST. Winners will be randomly selected and contacted via email. I will announced them in the comment’s section and on my website by Monday, May 11, 2015.
Okay, so I was just thinking…
I have been receiving wonderful emails from readers regarding some of the supporting/secondary characters who were introduced in one or more of my novels (Something New, Blue Roses, and Rendezvous with Danger). Readers want to know when (or if) some of these characters will get their own books, and in some cases, my answer is “yes.” EXCEPT for Kenny Hollister (in Something New) – I was actually surprised when someone asked if he’d get his own story. Even with my overactive imagination, I can’t think of anything that can redeem him from some of the stuff that he’s pulled. He’s currently in jail for attempted murder and a few other offenses.
At any rate, so here’s what I’ve been thinking. I’d love to know why certain supporting characters resonated with you…or what you liked about them.
Here’s what you have to do for a chance to win (it’s pretty easy):
Using no more than two sentences, tell me which supporting (secondary) character was one of your favorites and why OR which supporting (secondary) character would you like to see with their own story and why. NOTE: If you had a favorite supporting character from one of my books, here’s your opportunity to have a hand in getting their story told.
Here’s what the winners will receive:
First Place – $20 Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card AND
An opportunity to be a supporting character in your favorite supporting character’s story.
(This means a supporting character will have your name and personality – or your ideal personality)
Second Place – $5 Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card AND
an ecopy of one of my backlist books (this will include Rendezvous with Danger)
The winners will be announced (in the comments section below) on Thursday, March 28, 2013.
Below are the characters who readers have asked about or mentioned in emails.
From Something New (“edgy” sweet romance)
Andrea Garcia (Tim’s ex- supermodel girlfriend and baby’s mama)
Jessica Freeman (Jess – one of Simone’s best friends and her business partner)
From Blue Roses (book 1 of the Reunited Series)
Mark Darley (Dallas Marcel’s ex-husband)
Skylar Hollister (Sky – Tyler Hollister’s twin sister – married to a Marine)
Harmony Cole (Dallas Marcel’s sister – Note: several of you wanted her to hook up with Quinn…but as many of you know …now, he was already taken…and she wouldn’t have been able to handle Quinn)
From Rendezvous with Danger (book 2 of the Reunited Series)
Cameron Miller (Wiz – Quinn’s friend and former Navy SEAL)
Malik Lewis (Quinn’s friend and former Navy)

Where most women would welcome love from a wealthy, good-looking man, Chicago-based investment manager, Dallas Marcel, is not one of them. She will never let a man control her life again. That includes handsome entrepreneur, Tyler Hollister. Dallas is on track to making partner and she’s not letting anything or anyone get in her way. But when her life is put in danger, and a Ponzi scheme ignites a SEC investigation of her firm, she realizes the one man she’d banned from her heart, might be the only one who can save her career and her life.
Tall, dark, and handsome, Tyler Hollister can have any woman he wants, but he only wants one – Dallas. When he starts talking marriage, she breaks things off between them, claiming she doesn’t want a romantic entanglement to hinder her plight to making partner. A chance meeting, six months later, brings them face to face and Tyler soon realizes the intense sexual attraction they once shared is stronger than ever. But he swore he was done with her. Except he finds out her life is in danger, and his protective instincts take over. Can he save her life without losing his heart … again? Read an excerpt
Entrepreneur, Simone Edwards, did what any intelligent woman with a ticking biological clock would do: she asked her longtime boyfriend to marry her. Devastated when he turns her down, and fed up with dead-end relationships, Simone swears off men … and takes a vow of celibacy. How hard could it be? She soon learns it’s harder than she thinks when the most irresistible man in the world, Tim Hollister, shows up at her job. She hasn’t seen him in over ten years, and quickly realizes he is a temptation she doesn’t want to resist. But isn’t there some rule about dating your friend? Simone must decide if a romance with Tim is worth risking their friendship, and her reclaimed virginity.
Betrayed by his supermodel ex-girlfriend, who happens to be the mother of his child, Tim Hollister has placed a padlock on his heart. But when Simone, an old high school friend falls back into his life, he soon forgets his promise to stay clear of beautiful women. Simone was always like a sister to him, but he discovers that his feelings for her aren’t very brotherly. He’s captivated by the woman she’s become and wants to take their friendship to the next level – despite her resistance. Tim can’t avoid their new-found passion, and sets out to prove he’s the man for her. Read an excerpt
Cincinnati police officer, Craig Logan, needs a plumber, but not bad enough to hire a woman. “No way am I letting some pint-size woman near my pipes!”
ESPECIALLY IF THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB…IS A WOMAN…
When Toni Jenkins (TJ) shows up at Craig’s house to repair his plumbing issues, he thinks it’s a joke, but soon finds out the joke is on him. Not only is Toni the finest plumber he’s ever seen, but she’s good at what she does. Will he realize before it’s too late, that not only is she the best woman for the job, but she’s the best woman for him? Read an excerpt
