Creative Casanova is LIVE!

“What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?” 

When Ryder DeLuca posed that question to me at my cousin’s wedding reception, the last thing I expected was to end up in his bed. 

I was the kind of woman who lived inside the lines – until I broke the rules for a smooth-talking, creative Casanova. 

I really shouldn’t have been surprised when I woke up alone in his hotel room.   

Three years later, our worlds collided once more, and this time, I wasn’t only caught off guard by Ryder’s sexy, dimpled smirk, but also by the little boy standing at his side.  

A little boy he never mentioned, who looked just like him and was old enough to be one of my kindergarten students. 

The minute Ryder extended his hand to introduce himself, it was clear I had simply been another notch on his bedpost. 

Anyone in my shoes would have assumed the same thing I did – that Ryder DeLuca was nothing more than a womanizing jerk. 

Then again, you know what they say about assuming, don’t you?  

Both of us were marred by a past we couldn’t change, but with a little help from fate, two geriatric cupids, and a dog named Turtle, we just might get our second chance.

Where Love Lives is coming this winter…

Cover and Blurb Reveal

I’ve never had a place to call home.
Growing up in foster care, I learned not to get attached.
The day Easton Chadwick walks into my life, my sense of self-preservation falls by the wayside.
When I’m in his arms, it’s easy to believe in the fairy tale. Then, tragedy strikes, serving as a soul-crushing reminder that nothing lasts forever.
Suffocated by fear, I pack my bags, leaving Easton and the town of Maplewood Falls behind.
Several months later, I come face-to-face with the man who still owns nearly every part of me, but one night fueled by alcohol and bad decisions doesn’t change anything.
At least, that’s what I tell myself …
Until those two pink lines appear.
For the first time in my life, I’m willing to lay my heart on the line for a family and a place to call home.
Because home is where love lives.



Where Forever Ends is LIVE

I’ve started and deleted this post about twenty times.

Writing this book was a journey like none I’ve ever experienced. When I began Saylor’s story, all I knew was it would be a single mom/ older brother’s best friend story. I had no idea how much I would fall in love, not only with Jase, but with Colin as well. There is a depth to these characters. Saylor is raw without being weak. Jase loves her enough to bide his time. Saylor’s son Knox brings humor to this story.

The town of Maplewood Falls is fictional, but it’s a place I want to live and I hope you’ll feel the same way.

For all my readers that are wondering, just in case you didn’t read the acknowledgements, Easton’s story is next.

Thank you for reading and for being on this incredible journey with me.

Where Forever Ends

My life is split into two parts—then and now.


I was a wife.

Married to a man who was my world and the father of my child. Then, one day, half of my heart was ripped out of my chest.


I’m a widow.

A single mom who has spent the last nine months trying like hell not to drown in an ocean of grief.

I survive in the in-between, but surviving isn’t the same as living, and I’m not sure what living looks like anymore.

That is, until Jase Turner, my older brother’s best friend and my former crush, comes back into my life.

We’re two people tethered together by strands of similar sorrow.

My husband had my past.

Jase wants my future.

And maybe where forever ends is just a different beginning.
