Tristan Kane, son of the High Vampire Magistrate, has wondered a little too far off the beaten path this time, and now he's screwed. Becoming addicted to human blood is considered to be the most deplorable of statuses in the vampire community, the equivalent of being labeled a crack fiend. What's worse is that vampire venom is highly addictive to humans, creating a dangerous co-dependent relationship between the species. Unlike his father, Tristan doesn't give a damn about social standing. He just wants the constant burning in his veins to stop. The problem is that nothing he's tried so far has even come close to easing the ache.
Until he meets Katherine Quinn, the only human he's ever encountered who is immune to the effects of venom.
Kat has been pulling her younger sister, Meri, out of the fire since the day Meri hit puberty and locked eyes with her first loser boyfriend. When Meri's latest low life turns out to be a vampire who gets her hooked on venom, Kat is a little out of her depth. What's even more baffling is that vampire glamour and venom have no effect on Kat. She has no idea what makes her such an anomaly, but when the dangerously seducitve Tristan makes her a deal, there is no way she can refuse.
His offer is simple: if Kat will give herself to him, blood and body, in an effort to control his addiction, he will use all of his considerable power to find an anti-venom for Meri. Tristan's proposition seems like the only light at the end of a long and arduously traveled tunnel. But can she trust him? Should she lose her heart to him solely for the sake of a cure?
THE ARTIST'S PROVOCATEUR
High school art teacher, Marie O’Shea has only ever wanted two things. The first is to watch her students master their craft and flourish once they leave her classroom. The second is to blow the competition out of the water this year with her painting at the local art museum's annual auction. Never had she meant to pique the interest of the most promiscuous of the Serano brothers: her obnoxious jerk of a neighbor, Adam. But now that she’s inadvertently caught his attention, she can’t shake him.
Adam Serano’s devil-may-care attitude and insane good looks have women coming and going from his apartment like a revolving door. What people think about him has never bothered him, so why Marie’s low opinion of him gets under his skin, he can’t say. He made a promise to himself a long time ago that he would never let himself get more involved with a woman beyond the intimacy of one night. Despite this, Marie’s quick wit and immunity to his charm, has him craving her time and attention.
When Adam inexplicably pops up, almost everywhere she goes, Marie’s barriers against him start to wear thin. Underneath Adam's flippant attitude is a man that she could very much fall for. But when a visitor from his past shows up after a nearly twenty-year absence, old wounds are opened, and she starts to doubt that Adam will ever be able to open himself up enough to let her love him.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON...
My mind is always percolating with new ideas that sometimes lead me off into the wonderland of my imagination. To the outside world it may look like I’m staring blankly off into space but what I’m really doing is building new universes and weaving the fate of my characters, conquering their demons and showing them how to fall in love.
I’ve been quite busy playing the architect of these worlds and there is a lot coming your way in 2018. Here is a snap shot of what I’ve been working on and a little preview of the new stories and characters that live inside my head…
A New Paranormal Romance
Just as she dipped the tea bag into the hot water, someone started pounding on her apartment door like the world was on fire and she had the only bucket of water left. It could only be one of two people and she had a feeling she knew which one it was. Letting out a weary sigh, she moved toward the door to look out the tiny peephole. Cringing, she rocked back onto her heels. Taking a few minutes to gather herself, she ignored the zing of excitement...
