TEARS OF INK
She has one rule: Never sleep with someone twice.
Faith Hitchin wears the shadows of the past on her skin for all to see. To a stranger’s eye she is a girl with sass and tattoos, a lover of art. But beneath the mystery of swirls and ink she is a woman alone and in pain.
When opportunity knocks in the form of an invitation to an art project that could change the direction of her life, she’s afraid to move forward. But, like her namesake, she pushes past all inhibitions and takes a leap of Faith. The last thing she imagines is a summer of self-discovery at the hands of a sexy Baroness’ son.
Elijah Fairclough is arrogant yet charming, complicated but forthcoming. With his blue eyes, expensive suits and evasive attitude,
it seems he’s used to getting what he wants, and he wants nothing more than to discover the woman beneath the tattoos in every way possible. Will Elijah’s persistence make her break her only rule, or will there be tears of ink?
Book one in the enthralling Contemporary Romance series Tears Of...
*Tears of Ink is the first part in a series and is not a standalone read. Book Two TEARS OF GLASS is coming early December 2018
BEATS OF THE HEART
Before they can have a second chance, they have to live through their first love… and heartbreak.
We shouldn’t have taken the risk. We should’ve stayed just friends. Best friends. But only friends. But our hearts were foolish. I’d loved him forever. So, three years ago when he offered what I always longed for, I grabbed it with both hands. But I couldn’t hold on tight enough. The beauty of love blinded me. I didn’t see it coming. Didn’t expect to lose everything. My friend. My heart. My art. My privacy. All of them casualties of love lost.
Every beat of my heart sang her name.
She was my muse. Without her, there’d be no music. I was riding the high of fame and fortune. I had it all—status, money, her. Until the thing I’d always wanted cost me the thing I’d always needed. Love’s song drowned out all the warnings. Now she was gone. So was the music. So was my will. I was left with only silence.
What happens when two hearts sharing one beat fall out of sync?
NOTE: This is part ONE of Dawson and Izzy’s story. Their story will continue in early 2019.

SOMEBODY TO LOVE
"Let me guess: You’re single.”
“But not desperate. So if you’re asking me out, you might as well stop now.”
He looked at me and gave me a slow, sexy smile, clearly undeterred.
Uh oh, I thought to myself. He was going to be trouble.
I was done with love.
Always dating the wrong men for the wrong reasons.
I sucked so much that my ten-year-old niece used all her allowance to sign me up to an elite dating service.
I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
But I knew one thing — I could at least try.
Now there he is.
NOT married? Double check!
He’s the perfect package.
Even with all the choices I have with this new dating service, all I want is him.
Someone I just met by accident.
The problem is, I don’t know if I can risk trusting my heart.
Beautiful. Funny. Sexy.
She smells so good as well.
And that seductive lacy underwear...
I knew all of that the first time I met her.
But she’s clearly holding back.
Like she’s been hurt before, more than once, probably by men who look like me.
I mean the gorgeous womanizer type.
There’s one way I can think of to convince her.
But if my plan fails, she might never speak to me again.

SOMETHING IN THE WAY
"The best slow-burn romance I have ever read."--New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward
It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents' house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each other that would link us in ways that couldn't be broken...no matter how hard we tried.
I loved Manning before I knew the meaning of the word. I was too young, he said. I would wait. Through all the carefully-chosen words hiding what we knew to be true, his struggle to keep me innocent, and infinitely-starry nights—I would wait.
But I'd learn that no matter what you achieve in life, it means nothing if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, my older sister saw him next.
Book one in a USA TODAY bestselling series of forbidden love.
FIRST TO FALL
It took only one day at college for life to throw a wrench in Alyssa's plans. When she walks into the quirky used bookstore just off campus she expects to find a few old paperbacks, not to lose her head over the store's sexy owner - and Kyle is way out of her league, the kind of sex-on-a-stick bad boy who would never give a girl like her a second thought. Or would he? There's nothing Alyssa loves more than a good challenge, and this one promises to be a lot more exciting than running for class president. She just wants to make Kyle notice her, that's all - to see her as a woman. How hard can that be? She'll stop before she gets in over her head. But she can't get those smoldering brown eyes and sinful smile out of her mind, and she keeps imagining his full, soft lips hovering a breath away from her own.
Would kissing him really be so dangerous?
Kyle doesn't do sweet and innocent. He certainly doesn't mess with the kind of college girls who will still be getting carded when they're forty. But one look at Alyssa's smile is enough to shake him, and he can't seem to make himself push her away. It's a mistake and he knows it - he's too old for her, she's not remotely his type, and he's not into relationships - but she's under his skin like no other woman has ever managed before. He knows he can't have her, but maybe he can have just a little taste? He can always stop, any time he wants to, before he gets in too deep with her. What can it hurt? Just one kiss, and then he can stop. Can't he?
Would kissing her really be so dangerous?

And now I am ready to fight back.
Keep your head down. That's what they told me when I got out of prison and again once I finished my parole. And I meant to do that,
I swear. I had my brothers, The Sons of Steel Motorcycle Club at my side. I had a mission and a sense of pride. I wasn't looking for a fight.
But meeting Emmy turned that all on its head. She's too damn beautiful not to fight for, no matter what it costs me.
Whether it's my freedom, or my life.
She's worth it.
