Overview

Great Britain, 1880

A woman out of time.

A man stifled by propriety.

A nemesis determined to take her away.

A brother to the rescue.

The Duke of Roxleigh is running the track, training his new set of Friesians, when a woman runs from the forest directly into his path nearly killing her. He takes her back to his manor to care for her... but there's something not quite right and though he wishes to be done with the entire situation, he just can't keep her from his thoughts...

Francine Larrabee was a 21st century woman on a path bound for certain glory—until she lands in Victorian England and is nearly killed by a team of terrifying black horses led by a Duke who matches them in spirit and demeanor, and always seems to be cross. Though she is drawn to her rescuer, he wants nothing to do with her.

Brother to The Duke of Roxleigh, the Lord Peregrine Trumbull, is Viscount Roxleigh in name, but a rake of the worst order by action.... until he meets his match in a girl who requires his complete submission, something he has never been familiar with.

Lilly Steele was a simple country miss until she was kidnapped, brutally attacked and left for dead in the far reaches of Great Britain. Now she's escaped the aftermath and has asked Perry to do the untenable. She managed to recover her physical injuries... but the emotional scars run deep and will require absolute trust and healing from an altogether unlikely source.

What is love? Where does it come from? What makes two people crash, and two other people burn? In this novel we feel what it means to love, what it means to care, and what it is to give up everything you know—to save the one person you can't live without.

About the Author

Colorado. Canon. Curls. CJs. Ninjas.
Born and raised in this beautiful state -very nearly with a camera in hand- I never left. I started my own family, got used to the curls, went to college, built a CJ, started a business, and totally beat the daylights out of a ninja, all with a camera in hand.
Spending my days in parenting chat rooms I got highly adept with one-handed typing and I can still type just about as fast with one hand as I can with two. It's a great talent to have when engrossed in a scene and in need of a hit of caffeine.
Once I finished my first novel I quickly realized: I was born a photographer.
From the realization that someone ELSE would be shooting the cover of MY book my control-freak took over. What started as an easy cover shoot ballooned into this ground-breaking new kind of media, designed specifically for digital book readers. The Illustrated Romance.
I live and thrive off chaos and the constant flow of the creative process. I wear shorts and flip-flops year-round -much to the chagrin of my friends and family.
The images from my book started a ruckus, and from there, #StudioSmexy was born, I've since shot over 1,000 romance novel covers, and currently shoot custom images for very special clients.

My second novel ABSOLUTE SURRENDER did its own ninja impersonation with the charts on Amazon. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram sharing eye candy (NSFW) and being a total rock star.
