UNEXPECTED CONNECTION

November 11, 2022

Connection - a relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else. What do you do when your heart has been broken and you've been basically publicly humiliated by the guy you probably shouldn't have been involved with in the first place? Do you a) move on with one of his close friends, b) wallow in self-pity, c) have his baby, or d) all of the above? If you chose d, congratulations you're just like me. My very brief romance with world famous Zamir Kalif went up on flames. I absolutely do not want to be connected to him in any way. So you can imagine my shock when I find out that Zamir is going to be a part of my life for a very long time. Just because he and I are forced to co-exist now, doesn't mean I'm going to give him another chance to break my heart. I'm happy, healthy, and wealthy. I don't need him. Plus, I've got a flirty friendship going on with the equally, if not more, handsome Miguel. Let's just say that everything happening in my life right now is completely unexpected.

IMPERFECT ATTRACTION

July 14, 2022

Attraction - the action or power of evoking interest, pleasure, or liking for someone or something. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Maybe it’s supposed to be when it happens the right way. Maybe it’s simple and wonderful and downright exciting. I don’t know, but what I do know is that for me, attraction was messy and complicated. It turned my world upside down. It changed my life for better and for worse. Mostly for worse. From the moment we met, I was attracted to Zamir Kalif. How could I not be? He’s handsome, nice, talented, and a member of the world famous boy band Stitch. Our similar careers and interests seem to draw us together even when I’m trying to keep us apart. Eventually my feelings for him take over my ability to think rationally. I let my guard down. I give him my heart and I expect to get his in return. There’s just one problem, Zamir’s heart belongs to someone else. Now I’m left to deal with the mess that our imperfect attraction made.

He shrugs and ducks his head so he can look into her eyes. “Now may last forever.”

Her breath stills as she hears the weighted words. “Cole, I don’t know what you mean.”

“What I mean is that there is not an expiration date for us. We’re not crawling or racing to a finish line. We’re enjoying being happy together. Just the two of us.”


Before she escaped, Cristiana was living in misery. She was stuck with a boyfriend who mistreated her and isolated from her family and friends. Desperation was her guiding force that led her to an opportunity that may just save her life.


Cole is a handsome and successful CEO. He's also a frustrated single father. Raising his son alone was never part of the plan, but he learned long ago that life hardly ever follows even the best made plans. After his young son's nanny suddenly departs, Cole is desperate to find someone who can do what he can't - take care of his child.


Neither Cole or Cristiana are prepared for the difference that they'll make in each others' lives.

My lips pursed. “You’re not interested in talking. And I’m not interested in a flimsy hookup.”

“Thank you, that was a very gentlemanly move.” Her voice was light and teasing.
He snorted. “Despite my past indiscretions, I can be a gentleman.”
“We should head back before we miss the fireworks.”
Tristan nodded in agreement releasing her waist from his hands. Without a second thought he reached out and grabbed her arm pulling her back to him as she turned away. She fixed her mouth to question him but was abruptly cut off by the feel of his soft lips crushing hers.

May 3, 2018

Trent rolled his eyes, “You’re coming with me.”
“And what if I say no?” Callie challenged.
He chuckled darkly, “Do you really want to say no to me?”

Dangerous. That was what everyone called Trent Mason. His dark lifestyle shadowed anyone who got too close. He was the most notorious man in the state. He was the son of a legend. He was a drug dealer, fighter, and a killer. Everyone made sure to stay away from him. Everyone except for Callie. She fell into his arms and he stormed into her life. Trent was no good for anyone, but he was perfect for Callie.
