She wasn’t looking to fall for the blue eyed charmer. But fate–and love–have a way of sneaking up on an unsuspecting heart. It wasn’t long before Colleen was willing to put herself at risk if it means protecting Dalton from those who want to use him for their own ends–or ruin him trying.

Will they make it out of Midas in one piece?
Will they discover in time that love is the most powerful weapon of all?
Hart Of Rock And Roll, Book 3

Ashe Mathison has always been the even keeled member of The Ryder Hart Band.
Unlike his friends, he had a stable childhood. Pampered and loved, he grew up wanting for nothing—except the chance to follow his true passion. Music. In order to follow his dream, Ash had to walk away from his family with nothing but a few dollars in his pocket, a guitar slung over his back, and a driving ambition to be the best.
Ten years later, Ashe has it all. Fame. Wealth. And a tight group of people he can count on to have his back—no matter what.
Mending the break with his family had always seemed like an impossible task. But when an opportunity arises, Ashe knows it might be the only chance he will ever get. It’s a risk he has to take.

In the morning, when he reached for her, she was gone. Imagine his surprise when he returns home and finds out the woman he can’t get out of his mind is engaged to be married.
For Ashe and Belle, passion, once tasted, is impossible to ignore. But is that all there is? Can they have a future when their lives are so different?
An unexpected threat to Belle’s life changes everything. Ashe has found the love of his life—and will not let anybody keep them apart.
Hart Of Rock And Roll, Book 4
Published: December 2016
Zoe Hart knows who she is. Sister, friend. And badass lead guitar player for The Ryder Hart Band. A childhood filled with all-to-real monsters and the uncertainty of foster homes left her no choice but to grow up fast. To survive she built a wall that over time had gotten taller—thicker. She didn’t let in anybody but her closest friends. And even they didn’t know all her secrets. She doesn’t need a man in her life to make it better. She doesn’t need a man. Period. Especially a cocky, charming rock God who is used to women falling at his feet.
Smith Carson had known Zoe Hart since she was teenager. Pretty. Amusingly snarky. She was more of a girl than a woman. While he admired her as a musician, he always thought of her as Ryder Hart’s little sister. In other words, hands off. When that changed, he wasn’t certain. All he knew was that one day—in what seemed like a blink of the eye—she was all grown up. Breathtakingly gorgeous. Along with an outer maturity, her snarky tongue had turned from amusing to acid sharp. If Smith wanted Zoe—and he did—it was going to take more than some charm and a smile to win her.
Resisting Smith had been easy when Zoe thought he was a shallow, narcissistic pretty boy. The attraction was there, but that was all. Smith didn’t try to hide his intentions. He wanted Zoe. To her surprise—as she got to know him—she found herself wanting him back. Before she knew what was happening, he snuck underneath her well-constructed walls. Smith was on a path to her heart—something Zoe hadn’t thought possible.
It was tempting. Smith was tempting. But secrets—no matter how well buried—have a way of digging their way to the surface. Demons—both emotional and real—have haunted Zoe most her life. It’s time to face them once and for all.
Can Zoe find a way to open her heart to what Smith is offering? Or will the past destroy what she wants the most? Love.

The Othala Witch Collection


The Othala Witch Collection

Each book is a standalone novel written in the world of Othala.

The World of Othala:

Many years ago, the Original Sixteen witches were able to contain an outbreak of demon-like creatures from overtaking the earth. But doing so came at a cost. For the human race to survive, the world had to be divided into sixteen sectors, trapping the Ravagers to the Outlands beyond, and trapping the humans in.

The Original Sixteen served as Regents over each of these sectors, and when they died, the strongest of witches took their place, using their own personal enchantment abilities to protect their sector. In the process, communication was lost. The only solace that remains is the knowledge that if another sector fails, their own may still survive.

But what happens when your sector is the one to fail? What happens when the world inside your walls is just as bad as the one outside them? In this collection of sixteen dystopian paranormal romance tales, each and every one of the sixteen sectors is about to find out.

Hybrid (Sector 3)

Abomination. The word follows Katyia Dragonovich, bastard daughter of the Regent of Sector Three.

After being turned over to the vampire clan by the only mother she has ever known, Katya swears vengeance. Although terrified, she boldly faces her new future, even if it’s an uncertain one with a man who is as cold as the mountain’s ice caps.

When the Vampire clan discovers one of their new turns has been infected with ravager blood, they rally for her extermination. They cannot allow anything carrying the mark of the monstrous creatures that have overrun their world to live among them.

But Roman Stratcovich, rightful king of the Vampire clans, has other plans. This hybrid woman—part witch, part vampire, part ravager—may be the secret to gaining what he’s lost. More than that, however, she’s also the key to unlocking his cold heart.

The question is, does he want her to?

Writing Woes!


What do you do when you have half a dozen story ideas but cannot sit down and start writing?

It isn’t exactly writer’s block because woah, am I used to that.  No this is just finding the peace in my own head to focus on the story.

Or in this case stories.

I have one plotted, thought I was going to get some of it written for NanoWriMo, but I found I was doing anything except sitting at the laptop and writing and so the tale of the three brothers languishes inside my head waiting on my fingers to get typing.

I wish there was a way of downloading my brain to the page.  I’d have about a dozen manuscripts ready to go.

In the faint hope that I can get something written by the end of the month I’m setting out some goals here.

  1.  Luke’s story from Three Brothers.
  2. Finish Ghost Story (A Rola fic).
  3. Finish my manuscript of poetry.

Check back with me at the start of April to see if I’ve accomplished anything!
