But she knows he’s the man of her dreams, and a battle ensues that throws them both on a course to change.
Author’s Inspiration: It was a spin-off from my I Love My… series about two characters who meet in a bar. He’s a player, but I didn’t want to write about a player, so I went back and discovered what made him that. And what women would tear it down.
I write steamy, heartfelt books that often make you laugh. A background in comedy and in the hard knocks of life, have pulled out of me characters you might know and who you fall in love with because they’re so real.
Book Description: This is a prequel novella in the Allie’s War series, an alternate history romance featuring a gritty, unique and modern day Earth with star-crossed telekinetic lovers, Allie Taylor and Dehgoies Revik. In this version of modern Earth, a second race of psychic beings, called Seers, live side by side with humans. This story takes place a year or so before Revik pulls Allie out of San Francisco, and informs her that she’s a seer. She gets into a jam in New York while she’s there to see her boyfriend, Jaden’s, band play, and Revik has to come to her rescue, nearly getting both of them killed in the process.
Author’s Inspiration: This series has been hanging around me for years now. I started dreaming about one of the characters, Revik, when I was in my late teens and twenties, and it seemed like he just demanded that I write his story. Allie came out of that, being someone he needed in his life, both to push back and stand up to him, but also to accept him for who he was and love him in spite of all of his faults.

While searching for his lost brother, Nate meets mystics who show him his dormant powers and show him his purpose in life.

But when vampires interfere with her typical human life by kidnapping her boyfriend, things take an interesting turn.
Author’s Inspiration: I wrote this book originally for my daughter (after swearing I’d never write a vampire story) only to find that Tessa had moved into my heart and made herself right at home. Since that first moment, I could do nothing but honor her story and get it down for others to enjoy! 🙂
