It’s safe to say my love life stinks. As if getting dumped for another guy by my long-term boyfriend isn’t enough, my hopes at finding a boyfriend get crushed with a string of disastrous dates.



But then I meet the strange bus boy who has been staring at me for the last three months. He’s awkward, goofy, and has no fashion sense. Corin is the exact opposite of what I should want in a boyfriend, but I feel drawn to him in a way I can’t explain.

There’s also Daniel. Smart, charming, successful, and well-dressed. He’s the perfect man, the kind of guy I should want. Even my family is convinced we’re meant to be together.

Lorelei, a siren, has spent the last three years searching for the man she loved after he was abducted in front of her. When the bounty for an escaped phoenix crosses her desk at the Phoenix Location Agency, she expects a typical bag and tag. Instead, she discovers the target, Aiden, is none other than her lost love.
Aiden has no memory of the sultry siren who insists they were once in love. Rising from the ashes comes with a price—he’s a new person, with no memories of his former lives. After years of being kept in bird form to harvest his healing phoenix tears, Aiden is not the man Lorelei knew.
When both are taken in by the Magical Creature Underground, reconciliation seems possible. But Aiden’s captivity comes with a dire consequence: a deadly poison is working its way toward his heart. The only known cure is a long shot at best. Can Aiden and Lorelei reclaim their stolen past before the clock runs out?

The blood graft stealing Aiden's life is worsening. His only hope of lasting long enough to make it across the country is to let Xander use Phoenix Tears to keep the Burning at bay. A sacrifice Aiden isn't willing for Xander to make now their relationship has a chance.

The hybrid baby growing double time inside Lorelei keeps her from being focused on the mission. As does Douglas's ultimatum for their future. It's throwing her off her game. That means she's bound to make a mistake. One that could prove deadly for them all.

It's the story of a young man's journey of self discovery from an aimless American with no knowledge of himself or his roots who returns to his birth country, reunite with his Korean birth mother dying from cancer caused by consuming toxic water over time, but unexpected accident separate them permanently. Yet, through her and his deceased father's former co-workers, he learns of his father's greatness as well as his weakness, as an ambitious American Jesuit who fulfilled his big dreams but caused his birth and troublesome journey as an orphan forced to leave his mother who couldn't raise him.

Goodreads * Amazon

Entering the house, he grabbed the box of buckles off the table and made his way to the kitchen, tearing open the box as he walked. Tossing the cardboard container aside, he took hold of the plastic wrapped inner package and tucked it under his arm. Opening the refrigerator door, he took out a beer and settled down at the breakfast table to inspect the contents of the package. Twisting off the bottle cap, he took a long drink, extracted his pocketknife from his front pants pocket, and proceeded to remove the bubble wrap. Shit! This was not belt buckles! He took out the contents and held it up, nearly choking. In his hand was a large hot-pink dick! Damn! Ky dropped the vibrator like a hot potato! Shit! He knew stuff like this existed, but he had never actually held one in his hand. He gingerly picked up the package again, turning it over to read the writing on the package. Our Personal Vibrator Will Make You Purr. The soft jelly like ears will really turn up the heat. Turn up the power and the rabbit ears provide extraordinary clitoral stimulation. The comfortable shaft moves with a circular motion and undulates to your very own body rhythms. The central portion of the mechanism contains pink pearls, which rotate to create extra stimulation. You can use all these features simultaneously, or in any combination that brings you pleasure! This vibrator is guaranteed to bring your orgasms to a new level. The insertable soft jelly shaft is 7 inches long and about 1.25 inches in diameter. Uses 3 C batteries (not included). Laughing, he looked again. Only 7 inches? Whoever would be using this was going to be cheated. Seven inches! Pitiful! Rising, he went and retrieved the hastily torn up box from the floor. Looking for the address, he realized UPS had been one house off. He nearly swallowed his tongue. The name was on the address label was C. Lawson. Cooper? His Cooper? His Cooper used a dildo? She needed him more than he thought. But this was an opportunity! He had wanted to see Cooper again and here was the perfect excuse. After all, the U. S. Mail must be delivered; it was his civic duty as a good American. A grin crept across the handsome face of rugged cowboy, Kyler Landon. This was going to be fun.

Spanish Eyes
Texas Heat Series 3


When a gorgeous woman asks an unattached man for sex, he’d be a fool to tell her no.

Dr. Drew Haley sees a fool in his mirror every morning.
From the moment Drew gazes into the beautiful Spanish eyes of Angelina Alejandro, he is lost. Her intriguing blend of innocence and sensuality almost brings Drew to his knees.
When she begs for something he can’t in good conscience give her, Drew hurts his beautiful angel. He wants nothing more than to help her heal from the torture she endured at the hands of a madman, but in order to do so, she must agree to give him a second chance.
Angelina just wants to forget the humiliation her captors heaped upon her. Her work as a scientist put her in the crosshairs of a power-hungry Sheik who wanted to force her to use the knowledge she’d gathered to harm mankind. When she refused, his unique brand of torture stole Angelina’s self-control and her pride. Once she is rescued, Angelina only wants to hide away, to find healing on her own. But Dr. Drew has other ideas. He has a plan to tempt Angelina back into the land of the living and straight into his arms.



Goodreads * Amazon

Drew’s black SUV passed underneath the familiar wrought iron gate. He glanced over to the lovely, timid woman beside him. “Welcome to Palo Gaucho Ranch.” Angelina hadn’t yet made peace with this agreement between Dr. Drew and her brother. She despised being an imposition and no matter what anyone said, that’s what she was being. Sitting in the car seat, she hugged herself tightly, trying to forget this Greek god of a man had seen her completely naked in a non-medical setting. “Thank you, I am very grateful.” “I’m not looking for your gratitude, Angelina.” His tone was admonishing, but she chose not to spar with him over the matter. Furtively, she cut her eyes toward him. Yea, he was still gorgeous, ripped, and imposing as hell. Why couldn’t he suddenly grow a wart on the end of that classic Roman nose? Oh, he’d been nothing but gracious. It was hard not to like him. In fact, she couldn’t help herself. She did like Drew. No, correction. She craved Drew like a person dying of thirst longed for a life-saving drink of water. But this was not a thirst she would slake. Heck, she couldn’t even separate her true feelings from the chemically enhanced ones. No, she was here only to appease Rafe so he could feel good about leaving her to finish the job in Yemen. “How beautiful,” she murmured as more of Drew’s ranch came into view. The property stretched out, green pastures spotted by large oak trees, pecans, and the occasional tall long-leaf pine. A big white horse trotted along the fence line, pacing itself with the SUV for a few seconds before veering off across a wide-open field. “What’s his name?” The sight of the beautiful equine relaxed Angelina a bit, she was able to breathe easier. A modicum of tension released from her shoulders for the first time in a long while. Drew looked across to his house guest. The appearance of the horse had brought a smile to her face and Drew was glad for it. This wasn’t going to be easy on either of them and seeing her smile warmed his heart. “His name is Snow. He’s one of my rescues.” “You’re a good man, Dr. Haley.” “Don’t hold me up as some paragon of virtue, Spanish Eyes. I’m just a man.” A man who wanted something he shouldn’t have. She trembled at the low timber of his voice. Her whole body seemed to be fine-tuned to every variance in his tone, she was ultra-aware of every move he made, of every breath he took. “This is absolutely lovely,” Angelina remarked as they drove, seeking to fill the space between them with anything that might deflect the overwhelming pull she felt for him. “I spend so much time in a lab or my apartment that I never get to see places like this.” When she turned away from the window, Angelina saw that Drew was staring at her. “What?” She soothed a lock of hair away from her face. “Do I look bad?” Drew couldn’t wipe the smile off his face. “Not in the least.” She needed to glance away, yet her eyes seemed locked on his features -– the chiseled jaw, those smoky, light blue eyes, it was all too much and she felt an ache begin to rise from deep within. “This is quite the place, your Palo Gaucho.” “I get by.” “You get by?” Angelina’s eyes widened as they neared the grand old house. “I’d say you do a bit more than that.” Drew’s three story Victorian mansion was a sight to behold. The double-wide front doors were graced by columns on either side. A wide veranda stretched across the front of the house that held graceful rockers and wrought iron cafĂ© tables. Angelina could imagine her host sitting out there in the morning drinking his coffee while he watched a horse race across the open area in front of him. The house was all white, with dark green shutters at the windows. The gracious, historical structure was the most beautiful home Angelina had ever seen. Drew pulled the big vehicle right up in front of the mansion and climbed out, first coming to help her with the passenger side door before heading to the back of the SUV to fetch their bags. “Do I bow or curtsy when the queen comes out to meet me?” “The only queen here is Hattie,” Drew informed her with a chuckle. “And she isn’t that big on formality.” As if on cue, an older lady with a head full of white curls came around the corner of the house with a rattan laundry basket tucked against one hip. “Don’t you be talking about me when I’m not around to defend myself, Drew Haley. Oh my, what a lovely couple you two make.” Angelina felt a blush rise from her chest to blossom on her cheeks. Her and Drew? A lovely couple? She wished. Drew would be the looks in that pairing, for sure. Angelina didn’t allow herself more than a moment to consider it, she was fearful her body would turn on her again. “I take it you are Queen Hattie. Pleasure to meet you.” Angelina extended her hand. The older woman gave her boss a look. Drew just shrugged. He knew better than to get in Hattie’s way. Her remark about them being a couple surprised him, however. She teased him about dating when they were alone, but in front of others she always came off like a mama bear protecting her cub.

Once upon a time, in a very small town lived an average young woman with an uncomplicated life.
Like everyone else, she has hopes and dreams, but the people around her never take the time to know the real Shae. When they look at her, they only see the woman they expect to see. Shae St. John spends her days helping others, but her nights are spent all alone. To fill the lonely hours, she weaves stories in her head about what it would be like to love and be loved. These are private fantasies, for her eyes only…until a family crisis forces her to put pen to paper and bring her erotic dreams into the light of day. Shae has no intention for anyone to ever know that she’s the romance author, Jessabelle – but when the truth is revealed, her world is ripped apart.
In order for this to be a love story, there must be a guy...of course.
Derek Alden doesn’t see himself as a hero. His life is in shambles. After losing his home, his business, and his only child in a messy divorce, Derek returns to his roots, seeking a place to heal and plan how he can reclaim what he’s lost.

Unfortunately, trouble is all too hard to resist.
Derek tries to keep his distance from Shae, but her mix of innocence and sensuality draws him like a moth to the flame.
This is the story of two people who deserve a happy ending. As with most stories, things can be complicated - mistakes will be made and problems arise. Everything from small town drama to a madman’s schemes will come into play.
But overall – this is a love story.

**On Sale for only .99 cents June 27th – July 4th!!!**

First excerpt: Two Halves

There were two of them, And they were everything between sailors and astronauts. Always together, never separate. Which one was real, no one knew. One or the other? Harder to pick, than you would think. The better part of the other: He the body, and she the heart. The brother, the oldest of the two, Was the strong and willful one. The one that stood up, That lead and protected, that spoke for the two of them. The sister, the frailer of the two, Was the quiet and kind one. The one that was patient, That followed and cared, that cared for both of them. Twins with different minds, But both one half of the other. One like the sun, And one like the moon. One lighter where the other was darker. Which was which? No one could tell. But regardless, soon one would leave the other behind- To be whole by themselves.

Second excerpt: The Dance of Fire and Rain
He chose the fire, And she chose the rain.
He swore he’d set the world on fire- Just for her. But she was by nature- The flood that would put it out. He wouldn’t stop, and she couldn’t go anywhere. So the fire and the rain danced. Until the fire burned out, and the rain disappeared. The flames rose higher and higher, And the teardrops of the sky fell. The fire and the rain danced, Until both were nothing. Just embers and smoke, Nothing more and nothing less.

LaNona Walker is a book-aholic and major coffee drinker. When she’s not jotting stories down or getting lost in books, she can be found baking delicious treats while jamming to music or re-watching movies (mostly Marvel) with her Pug. Or getting dragged away from a bookstore by family members and friends.
