With tongue firmly in cheek – bacon-wrapped ground hog might be on my menu!  Wow – will winter never end?  Those in Boston…all of New England…are super strong!  Here in Dulles, VA…we’re snow/ice & minus temperatures!


I started the New Year with again being on the Top 50 Books to read after Fifty Shades of Grey with #13 being Double Occupancy – now on that fabulous list for OVER 2 1/2 YEARS!!!   WTRAFSOG – Top Fifty List: http://eepurl.com/bavK39

are double200x300

THANK YOU ALL!!!  Double Occupancy is NOTHING like FSOG – there is no BDSM/no collars/no handcuffs – reviewers have called it: “elegantly erotic” “adult characters – no college Twinkies” “chemistry was intense” & this fantastic note from a man: “One of the most authentic romance books yet. Casey and Travis are both great, believable characters with hang-ups and desires so real and intense that this is one book you’ll believe came from a real life whirl wind romance.” 

I had some great interviews from the past year that I’m keeping posted –  

Grab a cuppa java and read my interview – so much you still don’t know about me but lots of fun stuff here!



Embrace Gridlock – with some romantic comedy fun!

I love music too…but I enjoy HEARING a good book.

You can sample all of my audiobooks on all their links: iTunes, Audible.com & the Amazon/eBook link…..if you own the eBook (and some eBooks are just 99 cents (hint) if the audiobook is whispersynced you get that audiobook for just $1.99 and you don’t have to be a member of audible.com to get that deal!!!

For those of you who  downloaded BEST LAID PLANS when it was FREE – that audiobook is just $1.99 and has been on the audible bestseller’s list for since its debut!  And NOW BEST LAID PLANS is available on Nook, Kobo, Smashwords, iTunes, – everywhere!!!

And so many men have given  DARE THE DEVIL  5 star reviews – both for the action and the amazing movie script soundtrack/special effects as well as the ‘sex scenes’ – this can be the perfect audiobook to share! This is from Bella Czar who also created one fun book trailer for the eBook. ( check it out! http://youtu.be/_rMcy2ngCb4)

And now Dare the Devil can whispersync to the eBook for $1.99!

Both SPECIAL DELIVERY and  DOUBLE OCCUPANCY are on the erotica bestsellers list at audible with dual narrators – Destiny Landon and Lee James – wow..you will need extra ear buds for the steamy fun! If you own the eBook the audiobook is just $1.99 – they both whispersync!

New Narrator – Janice Moss is working on the audiobook for Caught in a Trap…and she is fantastic! She’s able to pitch her voice so that each character sounds different.

So I hope you’ll HEAR a sample – audiobooks are super fun to listen to when you travel, exercise, work around the house, or just want to relax with SPF 100 on by the pool…you can download them into an MP3 player (most under $30) into the laptop/computer, into some Kindles & Nooks! Audible.com has a great Concierge who pops up and will help you with questions – and remember you don’t have to join audible…you can buy direct!

beer guy

I love this!!  And this guy must be reading my books…my heroine’s are all uncontrollable!!! And I don’t write hero’s who think Jell-O shots are a food group!


If you like sassy, laugh out loud, contemporary romances – some more explicit than others – you have found the right author!

Reviewers have called them: “cat & mouse” – “slow burn” – “hot and steamy” – “highly addicting” – “solid characters & lots of humor” – “amazing reads!” I call them fun! My heroines are NOT: thin, petite, clueless or submissive. They are strong women who aren’t looking for a man – until the right one comes along! And those men! Tough-guy, alpha males who don’t know what hit them! But do know they want MORE!

Whether you read my erotic romantic comedies (updated eBooks), my updated ‘steamy’ romantic eBooks, or my classic eBooks – remember there’s never an expiration date on Romance!


Exciting news for audiobook lovers: ONE WAY OR ANOTHER (classic romance audiobook) was audible.com’s “Best Reviewed Romance for October 2012″ narrator: Janina Edwards

And SPECIAL DELIVERY, which has been on audible’s erotic romance bestseller list since its debut in August, 2012, was #4 out of 10 Top reviewed romance novels for 2012! (PS it was the only audiobook not from a major publishing house!) narrators: award-winning team of Destiny Landon & Lee James from Bella Czar Productions.

I also write sexy mystery/thriller’s. My non-fiction “How to write the Amateur Detective Novel” which was nominated for the Agatha Christie Award is in the FBI Forensic Library at Quantico.


WTRAFSOG highlights the hottest FB list & Double Occupancy

Check out the GEMSTONE collection on my web page…Double Occupancy is in Emeralds and Rules of the Game is in Diamonds!


I’m hard at work…at least some days…on my mystery series featuring former Army ranger/special ops turned private investigator, Roman Cantrell and investigative reporter, Nikki Holden.  I’ll be doing a ‘snippet’ page to whet your appetites!


Here are the latest rankings of adult fiction categories for 2013:

    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.

    • I’m flattered! I try to improve it and always add something new…hope you checked out the monthly special and the What to Read After 50 Shades of Grey Book Bundle – 7 full length novels for 99c

  46. Why viewers still use to read news papers when in this technological globe
    the whole thing is existing on net?

    • I love newspapers…while I do check the net for instant happenings…I cannot start my day without a real paper and the comics!!! Anybody else out there?

  47. Hello! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work?

    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips
    for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    • Well thanks for the compliment…anything takes time…I actually try to do some type of updating once a week..if there’s anything to update…and I rotate the monthly books specials…this month there happens to be three of them…. I think using wordpress is a great place to start a blog..there are alot of them on wordpress that are more ‘inventive & informative’ than mine. You might check on FaceBook to see who has blogs and their links….best of luck…Elaine

  76. Lottie Bridges

    Hi! Still can’t wait to read Caught in a Trap. I was wondering if any of your updated e-books are going to come out in print? Sometimes I just like the feel of a real book.

    • You are not alone in loving a ‘real book’ Lottie. Two that I kept as classics: No Easy Way Out and One Way or Another (published title: Tender Yearnings) can still be purchased as used paperbacks. Everything else has been updated however I think once I get Caught in a Trap out, I will be slowly doing CreateSpace paperback copies on the updated books. It’s on my never ending ToDo list!

  77. Does үoսr blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to send you an email.
    I’ve got some ideɑs for your blog you might be interested in hearing.

    Eіther way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  78. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Bless you!

  79. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

  80. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be
    running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to
    do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let
    you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks

  81. Hi, It is one nice post, thanks.

  82. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this outstanding blog!
    I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed
    to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group.

    Chat soon!
