Free Friday!

It’s the last Friday of July. It was a tough decision to pick the last free book, but I’ve been busy working on the next Holiday Cafe Book. I choose Masked Hearts as the last free book!

Masked Heart FOR WEB
Enjoy some Halloween fun in July!

I love, love, LOVED this book! Did I mention I loved it? Because I did. What we have here is the absolute perfect sweet yet sexy romance novel, all of which is centered around Halloween. I’ll admit, at first I was a little wary about how sexy this book could actually be. After all, our female lead character is a kindergarten teacher who sings in church choir on Sundays. But once she started debating the merits of having a f*%k buddy versus using her vibrator I was like, “Holy Hell, we’ve got a live one here!”

Welcome to 2016 at Romance for Grown-Ass Women!


Happy New Year! I hope you had a great holiday season whatever holidays you celebrated!

I am fresh from the annual meeting with my editor and publicist, and I’m totally pumped about the upcoming year. Billionaires, police men, coffee houses, and of course hot and heavy sex are a few of my favorite things coming up in my stories for you in 2016.

Here’s a rough schedule for you. We’ll see how close I come to keeping it! Continue reading

Behind her, he saw Raul nod toward the flowers and then disappear down a hall.

Still unsure about giving them to her he said, “Do you like the Ansel Adams?”

She stared straight into his eyes and nodded. “Very much.”

She was too far away. He wanted to cross the room and take her in his arms, but there was still the matter of the salon. His headache had lessened, but he didn’t want to bring up anything about business for fear of bringing the migraine back full blast.

He realized the short conversation had come to a lull, and it was his turn.

Before he could think of something to say, she walked towards the couch and said, “What beautiful flowers. Somehow I didn’t expect to see them in your penthouse. I keep imagining you have a beautiful garden in the Hamptons, but I pictured your apartment, I don’t know, sort of stark. It’s not at all what I expected.”

He smiled and motioned to the flowers. “I picked them for you. The vase is yours too. I thought it best accented the beauty of the gladiolas.”

Charisse’s eyes widened, and she touched her fingertips to the petal of a pink flower. “You picked these? Where did you find a garden? I thought you’d been in bed all weekend.”

His headache ebbed by about ten degrees. He held out his hand and said, “Could I carry the basket for you and I’ll show you where I got the flowers?”

Charisse shifted the basket to her other hand and shook her head. As she spoke, she slipped her hand into his. “No offense, but you don’t look your best. I’ll carry the food. Are you sure you want to go for a walk?”

The contact with her was heaven compared to what he’d been suffering. Why had he ever been worried about her coming over? “It’s not very far. I’d love to show you.”

Holiday Cafe Bonus Giveaway: Hand Crafted Halloween Chocolate!



In Masked Hearts Sienna can’t bring herself to accept any gifts from sexy single dad Mark…even after breath taking sex. But Mark won’t let her leave without them:

Sienna’s whole body shook as she tried to get her sandals back on. What the fuck was she doing with this guy? She’d tied herself up for him but she wouldn’t speak to him. Everything about him was over-the-top wonderful, and she still couldn’t open her heart the tiniest crack. She’d really let Glen fuck her up.

When she finally managed to get her shoes on, she dug into her purse for her keys. Her hand grabbed a box instead. She pulled it out and found the gift Mark had left for her on the table. She fell to her knees and stared at it in her hands. After a few moments, she took the top off. Four handcrafted chocolates stared back at her. They each had a unique decoration: a bat, a pumpkin, a witch’s hat and a spiderweb.

They smelled like the richest chocolate she’d ever tasted, with a hint of caramel or maybe toffee. She put the lid back on. She shouldn’t keep it. The petals he’d shredded from the bouquet he’d given her last night surrounded her. She clutched the box as if she feared the chocolates would be somehow torn apart if she left them. That was a silly thought, but leaving the box would probably anger him. She slipped it into her purse, grabbed her keys and walked out the door.

The chocolates in Masked Hearts were inspired by the Moonstruck Chocolate Halloween line. I was lucky enough to find their spider and pumpkin truffles in a local grocery store yesterday.
