"A classic country song come to life.” - 5 star review
When Felicity Wilde arrives in Nashville, she’s not looking for fame — she just wants a safe place to hide from the ghosts of her past. And for a while, starting fresh seems possible. She lands a job at a local music hotspot, collects her tips, and keeps her head down.
Until one night, he steps on stage.
Ryder Woods is a rising star. Everyone knows he’s destined for bigger things — it’s only a matter of time before he lands a record deal and heads for Los Angeles without looking back. He has no interest in getting stuck in Nashville, like all the other washed-up musicians who’ve never quite made it.
But once he spots the quiet girl working behind the bar — the one with haunted eyes, who sings the most heartbreaking lyrics he’s ever heard in his life — Ryder’s suddenly not in such a hurry to leave.
As Felicity and Ryder begin to make music together, their connection only deepens… but with demons of Felicity’s past circling closer, and the demands of Ryder’s future finally coming to fruition, they’ll find themselves at an undeniable crossroads…
They always say fame comes with a price...
But what if that price is the love of your life?
FADED is the first installment of an angsty, addictive new contemporary romance duet about two star-crossed musicians. From the dark streets of Nashville to the bright lights of Los Angeles, Ryder & Felicity's story is a whirlwind of bandmate drama, steamy romance, and original song lyrics. Part two of the duet, UNFADED, is now available for purchase in ebook and paperback. Please note: due to sex, drugs, and rock & roll, this duet is recommended for readers ages 16 and up.
CLOSE TO THE EDGE
Westen Series #2, where small-town romance meets an edge of suspense.
After facing death as an undercover narcotics cop, Gage Justice has come home to heal. His recuperation is cut short by his father’s unexpected diagnosis of cancer and subsequent death. Now he’s honoring one of his father’s last wishes by taking over as the sheriff of his boyhood home, Westen, Ohio. Biding time until his father’s term is finished, he fights boredom more than crime in the sleepy little town—that is until one sexy little teacher-turned-Private-Investigator literally falls into his arms.
Bobby Roberts is looking for adventure. After giving up her own dreams to raise her two sisters after the death of their parents, she’s been trapped in a schoolroom for nearly two decades. The suffocating claustrophobia of the classroom has set her on a new career path. She arrives in Westen, complete with brand-spanking-new PI license, a handgun and a simple case—investigate a lien on property of a dead man.
Little does she realize her “simple little case” will lead her into the world of one sexy sheriff and the path of a murderer intent on keeping them both from discovering his secrets or stopping his plans that could destroy Westen.

A hot & hilarious STANDALONE romantic comedy for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lauren Blakely, and Julia Kent! Now a USA Today bestseller!*
Hot bachelor Max Carlisle is heir to a media empire, tabloid catnip, and... wants to hire me to be his fake fiancee. I know what it takes to keep a billionaire in line, but signing up for seven days in close quarters with this Very Irresistible Playboy? It's just asking for trouble. The kind of thrilling, reckless trouble I could use a little more of since my career is currently ass-backwards in a mud bath with six shih-tzus (don't ask).
So do I:
a) Take the job, and bicker wildly every step of the way?
b) Embark on a mad-cap treasure hunt to claim his billion-dollar inheritance?
c) Try my hardest not to fall head-over-heels in love with him and wind up having the best sex of my life?
d) All of the above?
Something tells me I'm about to be way out of my league... and under the most handsome, infuriating man I've ever met. But with a fortune on the line, can we beat out his crazy relatives to win the prize? And will our fake relationship be game over at the finish line?
Be careful who you spill your secrets to...
Some women just have it — that combination of stunning looks and sexual confidence that brings men to their knees.
My last boyfriend once fell asleep while we were … you know. Not my proudest moment.
And my crush on my hot, arrogant, and oh-so-unattainable CEO? Never going to happen.
But one night, after too much wine, I find myself online, creating a profile for a sex kitten called SweetVixen. Safe behind my computer screen, I’m suddenly the seductive goddess of my wildest imagination.
Next thing I know, I’ve spent a month sharing every filthy fantasy I’ve ever had with a man I know only as Mister Bigshot. A man who can make my toes curl with just a few keystrokes. A man who brings new meaning to the eggplant emoji.
A man who now wants to meet in person.
Dressed in my rarely-used little black dress and heels higher than my expectations, I gather my courage and cross the restaurant toward the stranger who’s been teasing me mercilessly all month.
But then I come to a dead stop. Right in the middle of the restaurant. Frozen in place like a deer in the candlelight.
Because the man sitting there waiting on me is no stranger.
The man I’ve bared everything to — and I do mean everything — is none other than my hot, arrogant, and oh-so-unattainable CEO.
Mister Bigshot is … my boss.
And trust me, there’s no emoji for the look he's giving me right now ...

They say money can’t buy love. Fortunately, it can buy everything else.
A week ago, I didn’t know who Nathan Turner was. That’s because he doesn’t own deals; he makes them instead. He’s the man behind the curtain — more powerful even than the man in front of it.
He’s a multi-billion-dollar networker. A connector, in his own words.
Nathan’s job is to pull strings. And when I butted my way into his office, he told me he planned to pull my strings, too.
I thought I could make my own deal with Nathan, but now I’m in over my head.
What he’s connecting now isn’t a takeover or a buyout.
I think he’s forming a secret society instead: a Syndicate of billionaires who want to pool their assets into a trillion-dollar pool, then rule the world.
I’m not up to this. I’m just an 18-year-old girl.
But there’s no way Nathan will let me out now.
The Connector is the first book in the Trillionaire Boys’ Club series by Aubrey Parker. Each book tells the story of another of the Club’s powerful members … and you’re going to want to collect them all.

THE LAST GUY
Ordinary men are stopped by obstacles. Future kings conquer them.
A true statement, and the only issue with that pronouncement was I wasn’t the future king. I was the spare to the spare of the heir and hugely irrelevant. It meant I could do what I wanted, within reason. It meant I could have her, and I wanted that beyond all else. A life with Khloe, removed from the world, where there was only Damon and Khloe loving each other. It didn’t matter that she was ill. It didn’t matter that I was going to lose her not long after we married. I’d already lost my heart to her and needed every minute I could have with her.
None of the obstacles mattered…until unexpectedly they did.
Until I was no longer the spare to the spare.
Until the prospect that Khloe might one day be the Queen of England.
All things changed in the blink of an eye.
My family demanded I let her go, even knowing it would destroy me to lose her.

A bundle of the two books in the Stripped series, STRIPPED BARE, and STRIPPED DOWN.
What happens when you mix a bachelorette party, the queen of dating disasters, and a stripper so hot he was forged from the fires of hell? Screwed. You get screwed.
Cocky. Commanding. Powerful. Relentless.
Those four words all summed up West Rykman perfectly.
So did filthy, dirty, sexy, and addictive.
He was supposed to be my one night stand...not my new marketing client.
He was definitely not supposed to be back inside my pants, not that anybody told him that.
I knew one thing: What West Rykman wanted, West Rykman got.
And he wanted me.
What happens in Vegas... might just make you stay.
What do you get when you mix a bottle of tequila, a single mom moonlighting as a stripper, and her sinfully sexy boss with an impulsive side?
Married. You get married.
Rich. Demanding. Hot. Crazy.
That was Beckett Cruz in a nutshell.
Not to mention wild, determined, dangerous, and forbidden.
He was my boss—and, after a drunken moment of insanity, my new husband.
An annulment was impossible... so was keeping him.
I was taking my daughter and leaving, determined to give her a quieter life.
But Beckett Cruz had never taken no for an answer.
And he wasn't about to take mine.
What happens in Vegas... might just keep you there.
