SECRET LOVERS, REUNITED IN THE DARK

Alanna thought she’d never see Miles again.  He was her first lover.  The boy who broke her heart.  But now he’s the creative director at a high-profile ad agency and she’s an impoverished artist.  She needs the job he offers her.

Miles thinks he’s gotten over Alanna.  Brash, reckless, vivid Alanna.  It’s been eleven years, after all.  When he hires her, he swears to himself that he’ll keep away.  For his own sake, and for the job: the office has a strict no-fraternizing policy.

Once they start working together, they’re drawn to each other, tormented by what they can’t have.

And then one sultry summer evening, a citywide blackout gives them an unexpected opportunity.

Tonight, in the dark, they can both pretend she’s someone else.  Tonight they can be together. A second chance at love, but a risky one.

Book Three of the Greenpoint Artists series
2015 Romance Writers of America RITA® Finalist.

Samantha Lilly is in a long-term relationship… with her vibrator. She can’t handle a serious commitment, but casual affairs don’t do it for her either. So she’s resigned herself to being alone.

Her call-girl roommate Jeanine has other ideas. She persuades Samantha to take her place for one night with Dylan Krause, an incredibly hot prospective client recovering from a messy divorce. She says it’ll be good for Samantha to be with someone without her usual expectations and complications.

It’s more than good. It’s intense, extraordinary, and emotionally devastating. During their long, intimate night together, they bare, not just their bodies, but their souls.

But after that one amazing night, Samantha flees. This feels too real for her. And yet she can’t forget Dylan, even though she tries.

Then one day, he walks into the architecture firm where she works. Seeing him threatens to destroy the careful walls she’s built around her heart—and this time she can’t run away.

WMU cover 200x300WARM ME UP
Book Four of the Greenpoint Artists series

When normally calm, logical psychology grad student Georgette Soren painted the man from a haunting series of dreams in a month-long fit of obsessed frenzy, she began to question her own sanity. But now her imaginary mystery man has shown up on the fire escape outside her art studio window. In midwinter. In his shirtsleeves, no coat.

He calls her by name and says they were high school sweethearts. And her calm, logical world tips over onto its side and shatters.

Extreme sports photographer James Falk has been a risk-taker, a daredevil with a restless itch under his skin ever since he watched the love of his life plummet to near-death ten years ago. Now he’s found her again. And she has amnesia. But only when it comes to him.

He can’t let this stand.

From New York City at Christmas to a snowbound cabin in the Adirondacks, this story of forgotten love remembered threatens—or promises—to change both Georgette’s and James’s lives forever. If they let it.

Or maybe even if they don’t.

SHARING A BED WITH THE ENEMY

Darcy Jennings just bought a one bedroom condo, a gorgeous cliffside property in a coastal community north of Santa Barbara.  It’s the first time in her life she’s ever had a permanent home, and it means everything to her.  It’s especially sweet after what happened four years ago.  That’s behind her now, and the rat who nearly ruined her career, one Will Dougherty, is history.

Will Dougherty just bought a one bedroom condo.  He helped build the property with his green, clean designs, and he earmarked this unit to make his own.  It’s up the road from his newly divorced sister, and it means everything to him.  He’s come a long way since the day four years ago when his underhanded coworker, one Darcy Jennings, got him fired.   Thankfully, he’ll never have to see her again.

They couldn’t be more wrong.  Darcy finds this out the hard way when she stumbles into her condo after a long business trip, crawls into bed, and discovers a man there.  Will Dougherty. And he says it’s not her bed, it’s his.

Now Will and Darcy have to live together twenty-four hours a day until one of them admits defeat. If only it were easier to keep their hands off each other…
