First came Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then Angel, and it went on to Twilight and The Hunger Games. Some would say she is a daydreamer, but she is just a firm believer that there is a happily ever after. Hence, her huge love of romance novels.
She got into reviewing other author’s novels, and then decided to publish her own work. Bringing us to her first novel, If I could I’d wish it all away (2014). She always has her head stuck in a romance novel and is often (too often) reminded of this. When she hasn’t got her head stuck in a book or writing her next novel, she is glued to the TV series Pretty Little Liars, walking dead, The Originals, The Vampire Diaries and of course, Veronica Mars. Just an ordinary girl surround by extraordinary books

She thought she’d left the murders—and his obsession—behind . . .
Special Agent Jess Harris has spent more than a decade studying the many faces of evil. In her determination to stop a serial killer, she broke the rules, and it cost her everything. With her career in need of resuscitation and her love life dead and buried, Jess jumps at a chance to advise on a case that has the top detectives of Birmingham, Alabama, stumped. But the case forces her to confront all the reasons she put her hometown—and her first love—in her rearview mirror.
Four young women have gone missing, and Police Chief Dan Burnett will do anything to find them before it’s too late—even if it means asking for help from the woman who has spent a decade avoiding him. Jess agrees to lend a hand and welcomes the diversion of a new case, a new life to save to make up for the victims she’s lost. But then the unthinkable happens: the crazed serial killer from her past follows Jess to Birmingham. The situation is becoming increasingly desperate—and time is swiftly running out…

From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Sweet Thing and Nowhere But Here comes a love story about a Craigslist “missed connection” post that gives two people a second chance at love fifteen years after they were separated in New York City.
We met fifteen years ago, almost to the day, when I moved my stuff into the NYU dorm room next to yours at Senior House.
You called us fast friends. I like to think it was more.
We lived on nothing but the excitement of finding ourselves through music (you were obsessed with Jeff Buckley), photography (I couldn’t stop taking pictures of you), hanging out in Washington Square Park, and all the weird things we did to make money. I learned more about myself that year than any other.
Yet, somehow, it all fell apart. We lost touch the summer after graduation when I went to South America to work for National Geographic. When I came back, you were gone. A part of me still wonders if I pushed you too hard after the wedding…
I didn’t see you again until a month ago. It was a Wednesday. You were rocking back on your heels, balancing on that thick yellow line that runs along the subway platform, waiting for the F train. I didn’t know it was you until it was too late, and then you were gone. Again. You said my name; I saw it on your lips. I tried to will the train to stop, just so I could say hello.
After seeing you, all of the youthful feelings and memories came flooding back to me, and now I’ve spent the better part of a month wondering what your life is like. I might be totally out of my mind, but would you like to get a drink with me and catch up on the last decade and a half?
working on her next project, she likes to spend her time reading, going to
concerts, and eating dark chocolate.
Rafe Prescott controlled every aspect of his life from finalizing legal contracts for his family’s company to negotiating the next conquest at the sex club. After seeing the pain his brother in-law went through after losing his mate, he swore he’d never give his heart to anyone. He even scoffed at his brother for falling in love at first site, until he met her…
She knew he was a dominant, and she had always been curious about the BDSM lifestyle, reading every romance novel possible, but could she be what Rafe needed? In turn, would he be willing to risk everything, including his own life, to save her?
All he knew is that he loved her and needed her Here!

Was their relationship all just smoke and mirrors? Was she destined to repeat the vicious cycle with yet another manipulative man, only to crash and burn yet again?
Who is Rafe Matthews, and will Brie survive long enough to finally discover the truth?
While I hang my head, shame and remorse fill me. I promised to protect her. And what did I do? I let her down.
I should’ve known that it would end up like this. I should’ve seen it coming. Yet my mind was clouded as my days and nights—and, soon, my heart—were filled with her, and she was all I could see. I let my guard down, and this is where it got me. Where it got us.
I never got to tell her the truth.
I never got to tell her how I feel.
I will never forgive myself if I never get the chance.
And I will spend the rest of my days hunting the man who did this to her. When I find him, I will kill him.
Because for her? I’d do anything.

TRUSSED picks up the erotic reins right where MASTERED left them, then gallops straight off the ledge of mystery and suspense.
After an epic breach of BDSM protocol, MISSY WEAVER must earn back both her collar and James’ trust. Envisioning the hoops he will devise for her to jump through whets her submissive appetite – amongst other things. Born yin to his Yang, she is eager to meet – and exceed – every salacious challenge.
JAMES COLTON adores his ‘little one’. Miserable without her, he disregards time-honored BDSM precepts and forgives her her trespasses.

Yet, all is not as it appears. As the two lovers reconnect, a malevolent storm is brewing – patiently watching, waiting, and plotting its revenge. When Missy finds herself at the mercy of a madman, every minute counts.
Her shocking plight will have the hair on your neck standing at attention – in more ways than one!
The surprise ending will have you reaching for tissues and wanting for more!
