I’m Still Here – Update

Hi world! I know – I’ve been MIA for a while and it’s not because anything bad happened. I’ve just been bogged down with adulating so hard. Okay, check this out – So I have THREE Signings this year. So, after battling a kick ass case of writer’s block, I was doing the day job and writing full time.  I went through a complete rebranding with my writing. The website has always been changed. Though there is a link from the old site to the new one, you can simply click here to check it out.  I actually change the website twice in the space of a couple of months to get it to look smexy! Please, give it a look and tell me what you think! Onward to my signings. The first will be in Niagara Falls – Romancing the Falls! It’s my first time signing at this convention but I am nervous and excited about it. My second signing is on a smaller scale in Victoria, British Columbia that I’ve dubbed #Rocksteady! I …

That moment you want to send an author death threats – A Review

I decided to do one review for all three, because I feel this was the best way to put my scattered excitement together for all of them without seeming a little out of my mind. Let me start out by saying this. I really dislike series books, especially when they are so intricately intertwined with each other. Why? Well, now I have to sit and wait until the authors get around to finishing the other book before I can figure out what happens next. But still, I binged listened to the audio of all three books (so far) in the Moonrising Series and between wanting to burn things and send the author death threats, I enjoyed the series. As I write this, I may or may not have slept last night – hey, don’t judge me! Before I go further I have to say this – as a fellow writer I have to admit that I get attached to characters. Mine, especially, but when another author put life and care into the ones they create, these …

Queen Midas In Reverse

Okay, honestly, I read this story without reading the blurb. I thought it had something to do with a girl with powers to change things from gold to something weird or to reverse anything turned to gold by magic. Yeah, nothing like that. You should probably read the blurb first lol. And the cover had me thinking royalty, but nope, none there either. Anyway, here is the blurb, read it first – seriously – read it. The Rock and Roll Fantasy gang find themselves in a special Contemporary Romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Diane Rinella. For Jacqueline, a second date is as rare as a unicorn. She’s beautiful. She’s intelligent. So why is she experiencing a string of first dates that leaves her ducking behind bushes and running for buses? Contrary to her nature, trading in her heels and curling iron for an easy chair surrounded by cats sounds appealing. Is she cursed, or can she find the man who will steal her heart. Let’s start off y saying this. I usually cannot stand …

Sugar & Spice – RE Hargrave

**warning, reading this book will make you hungry and trigger one kick ass case of the munchies for all things sweet** I am a HUGE fan of romance. Not only because it was a huge part of my childhood or because I write the stuff, but a good romance is often time weaved with amazing writing and that makes me happy. But lately, the genre has been flooded with sex, sex and nothing but. Blurb: Lacey Harrison has been dealt an unexpected hand in life: being a single mom. With her father’s help and that of the residents at Royal Hills Nursing Home, she thrives and goes on to become a successful baker. She is content with her life but knows that she and her daughter Candy are missing something. Will things change for the better when Trent Childress moves into town and adds some spice to her sugar? Review: The Narrator is David White – I’m not sure how I feel about him. His reading was fluent but there was something about his voice that …

Part 1: The Divine Trilogy – To Serve is Divine

**Please note, you must be 18+ to purchase/read this book. It contains things that might be triggers for some people. In other words, this book contains HEAVY adult content and some events/actions that may be offensive to some. If you are easily offended, walk away man. *** Okay, so most of you know me and I don’t do BDSM. I mean, after trying to read book one of 50 Shades, I had a bad taste left in my mouth on the whole BDSM genre. I may not be a part of the BDSM community but I have researched it a lot when I was thinking of writing an erotic novel set in that world. I wound up not doing it because, well, I’m weird. Anyway, when it was offered for me to read two of the three books, I was hesitant. Even after I was sent the codes to get free copies of these books in Audio format because I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it. I mean most times people who write BDSM …

How could I have resisted even if Christmas is gone? So, now what? You want something to brighten up the new years because you’ve already screwed your resolutions and even though most thing there is still time to get back on the wagon, you’re feeling like you need something to make you smile. I was given an audio version of this book to check out because lately, I don’t seem to have time for much reading. But I always love to check out the audio of certain things just to hear the narrator’s interpretation of the actual book. Anyway, Noel Calabrese hates the holidays as much as she hates her life. While in the Silicon Valley on a business trip, she meets Leon Hallas. Could this sexy, silver fox be her ticket to happiness? Can she learn to trust again? Unwrap this steamy little romance about Second …

Preparing for IYSAE and new sexy tales coming!

As you may have known by now, I am attending the Ignite Your Soul Author Event in London Ontario on September 17th, 2016. You might also remember that I haven’t written much of anything in the past two years because of some stuff that went down with a previous publisher, and finding out a few things I didn’t like regarding African Americans in regency romance novels—but, a friend of mine invited me to this event and I managed to score a spot at the books signing! Once that happened, I needed to find swag. It was last minute but I did manage to scrape together a few things to give away. Also, you might be asking what stories will she be selling? Well, my friend, to answer that question, I will be selling print copies of two new novels! Book 1 in my SURRENDER series that is titled PREY and KISS IT BETTER. They are both Interracial- Kiss it Better is Blasian (Black and Asian). I am super, super excited and nervous all at the …
