Julie Rafferty’s life-long dream is within her grasp. But just as the toy company she founded verges on becoming a multi-million-dollar enterprise, her husband abandons their marriage.

Trevor had no choice but to walk away from Julie. How else could he show his wife that the business was her priority, not him and their three children? His drastic stunt backfires though, jeopardizing the family business and seemingly pushes Julie into the arms of a younger man.

Just when Julie and Trevor find their way back to each other, a ruthless competitor escalates a bogus lawsuit. Together they plot to reclaim control of the toy company, only to uncover a shattering betrayal that puts them in unimaginable danger.

Can they overcome their dreadful mistake and reclaim the passion, trust and commitment that once drew them together? Or will the greed of an evil man irreparably destroy everything they hold dear?

BEJEWELED: A BEAUTIFUL BLEND

Olivia believes she can have it all.  A successful business and a loving husband. But his ex-wife is not ready to walk away, and continues to threaten any chance he and Olivia might have at happiness. When Olivia discovers she’s being stalked, secrets her mother took to the grave come creeping out.

The baby Nikki and Carlos have been planning is finally on the way. One problem…the paternity is at question, and Carlos is in the dark. To protect her secrets, Nikki’s ready to sever ties to both men that hold the key to her heart. But one half of her heart won’t let go, and the other half is willing to fight until the end. The birth of her child may lead to the death of her marriage.

One test has the power to determine the truth. One test will change their lives forever.

Deception will bring separation, and destiny will mend two broken hearts. And in the end, everyone must work together to create a beautiful blend.

Excerpt:

Pamela Dunham was married to a successful investment banker and was used to getting whatever she wanted. Because Wesley had not given in to her enticements she desired him all the more.

She sat up allowing her towel to drop down as she faced him with her breasts aiming towards him. She grabbed his hand, massaging it in the palm and absently pulling it towards her as she looked him in the eye.

“Why do you play so hard to get?” she asked, placing his hand on her breast.

Catching him off guard with her brashness, Wesley jerked his hand away as if he had been burned.

“Mrs. D, I don’t play hard to get. I’ve just got mad respect for you. I could never treat you like some chick in the streets. Besides, you’re a married woman and I try not to get caught up in extramarital affairs. Too, much drama. You feel me? Married,” he stated in a deep, sensual voice.

“A married woman who’s lonely and wanting you very much. And if I’m not mistaken, you’re a lonely young man who is in need of a little company. Someone has broken your heart and I have the TLC you need. Wesley, I’m not trying to start a relationship with you,” she said, rubbing her hands up his back. “I’ve already got one of those. This thing between us would just be sex between friends…no strings attached. Don’t resist, Wesley. I tell you what, tonight when you get off, meet me at Kit-Cat’s,” she said, referring to a popular jazz bar in downtown Atlanta. “We can have drinks and if the mood hits, I will get us a room for the night. And we’ll see where the evening takes us. I don’t have anywhere to be. My husband’s out of town,” she offered.

Wesley let out a small laugh. His heart lay with Nikki, but one thing was clear. Her loyalties lie with her husband. She had made that much clear. He began to seriously consider Pamela Dunham’s offer. This being a “good boy” thing wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. He was a man with needs after all. And if she was willing…

Love Is. Blog Tour

Hi All!

Please join me in welcoming back author Tia Kelly to my blog! Tia is on a blog tour and she’s introducing us to her latest release – LOVE IS. Check it out!

It took a once-in-a-lifetime bond to teach her what love is, and a once-in-a-lifetime betrayal to show her what love is not… Love Is. A different kind of love story.

Above view of woman' || chr(39) || 's bare legs holding pillow between knees lying on bed with white sheets.

Diane Collins had big plans for her life, and hoops star Warren Scott was not among them. He doesn’t want to be the face of the NBA, and she doesn’t care that he is. His reluctance to be part of the limelight disarms her and the two embark on an unlikely friendship that becomes an even unlikelier romance.

Soon, his life is her life – filled with VIP treatment, parties and luxuries beyond Diane’s wildest imagination. But Warren is harboring a secret, and once it’s revealed Diane’s decision to stay or go could change the very fabric of who she thought she was.

Excerpt from Love Is:

“Good afternoon, Mr. Scott. Good day, Miss Collins,” the man said as she exited the elevator, and once her bags were removed, she watched Warren slip money into the man’s hand. They both nodded before the doors closed.

“I’ve never been greeted like that before when visiting friends. You know how to leave quite an impression,” Diane said once they were alone. Seeing him unnerved her, and the tension that had mounted between them since the day she left Jamaica faded.

Before she could get a good look at the surroundings, Warren opened his arms and she walked into them. Relieved. Sighing silently as she snuggled into his warm, comforting embrace.

“Thanks for coming,” he murmured.

She lifted her head and caught the worry in his eyes.

He kissed the top of her head and reached for her bag. “How was your flight?”

“A little bumpy. Glad I’m back on the ground now.”

“Says the woman that once couldn’t sit still during a storm in the sky.”

She laughed, keeping her eyes trained on how he moved in his bare feet with athletic grace across the hardwood floors.

“You know I’ll never want to fly coach ever again now. I better get this job just to support the travel upgrades. Limos to and from airports. First-class flights. Exclusive resorts and staying in this building the rest of the week…”

“Should I book you a room at a motel near the airport instead?” he asked, setting her bag down in the middle of his living room.

She paused, taking in her surroundings. Furniture was sparse, but the space didn’t feel bare, just minimalist in a sophisticated way. Creams, beiges and grays against natural white oak floors and dramatic high ceilings made her feel at peace. She recognized the Boston Harbor just outside his penthouse windows. Walking toward the view of the water, she pressed her hands on the side of the steel frames encasing the floor-to-ceiling windows, taking it all in. “This is simply amazing.”

“Ever been to Boston before?”

Diane looked back at him and shook her head. “Never had a reason to visit, but always wanted to check it out. The accent alone always fascinated me.”

“Anyone comment on your Texas drawl?”

“A few,” she said with a smile.

“I made reservations for…” He trailed off when she turned around.

She’d only meant to give him her undivided attention because they still had a few issues to resolve between them, but the heat in his eyes made her breath catch. He took three long steps toward her before pressing her back against the glass, kissing her until they both forgot what they were talking about. Until Diane forgot why she’d wanted to keep herself emotionally distant from him in the first place.
