Wow! How fast Summer has gone!! But there’s always time to   grab up an audiobook (or two or more) as you work outside, relax on the beach, or just chill in that hammock!

Not into audiobooks – then try an ebook!

Big thank you to Sean Sydney for this magical review of Lady Be Bad he posted on YouTube!   https://youtu.be/Z7PPiWEd-x8

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!

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.

    Has Caught in a Trap been released yet? if so where is it available.

    • Hi Lottie – thanks so much for asking…nope still working on it..have had way too many family illnesses to be able to write as quickly as I want to. And the book is BIG! I plan on having a launch party so keep watching here for snippets & news! Elaine

  20. I’m glad you enjoyed the snippet…it’s copyrighted…I need to post that…I am very excited about Caught in a Trap it’s more than a romantic comedy I am tackling some very dramatic issues including PTSD, child abuse, Veteran affairs, hunger in America..sometimes it’s easier to get across the ‘truth’ by using fiction…I have been doing a lot of research so I get everything as accurate as possible!

    got a loads of information here that is why i like
