Life isn’t meant to be fair, but sometimes it would be nice if it was. How much can someone take? Drama was the root of Cooper and Brittany’s relationship, and all they want to do now is enjoy being back in each other’s arms. Is that too much to ask?
Plane crashes, jaguar attacks, almost drowning, men with spears, arrows through the shoulder, beastly animals, mental institutions, murderous loggers...it’s all in the day’s life of Brittany and Cooper. But when they thought that finding their way back to each other was the end to all their problems, little do they know, their problems are just beginning.
Gray Knight has a garden that even Martha Stewart would envy. That’s because she uses the most organic fertilizer she can find. Who knew the corpse of a human body could produce the most beautiful flowers in all of Kansas?
Gray is not your typical serial killer. Not by a long shot. She’s unorthodox in her approach and her victims are hand-picked based on one common thread—they have all brutally abused women. Abused herself, Gray makes it her mission, with the help of her friends Andi and Jaz, to remove as many criminals as possible, leaving not a single trace of evidence behind. At least that’s what she believes. See, Gray is a bit obsessive. Everything she does is methodical and precise. She’s cautious. She’s paranoid. But then again, she has a good reason to be.
Jett Roman is a homicide detective, and for all Gray knows, Jett is the Grim Reaper who has come to lay her to rest. Are the foreign emotions Jett’s making Gray feel true or just smoke and mirrors? Only time will tell if her suspicions are as dead on as the cold bodies under the flowers.
**What Lies Beneath The Flowerbed is strictly in the female characters POV. The male characters POV will be portrayed in its own book at a later date.** Continue Reading
Murder in Palm Beach: The Homicide That Never Died is based closely on a real murder that happened in 1976. Rodger Kriger, a prominent resident of the posh town, is fatally shot one night through a window of the six-member family's home. A politically ambitious prosecutor gets a hoodlum/karate expert named Mitt Hecher convicted on the basis of testimony by jail mates, and he is sent to the brutal and anarchic state prison at Raiford prison. While attorneys appeal for a new trial, Hecher's wife contracts a usually fatal disease, and he is devastated. Did Hecher kill Kriger? A newspaper reporter who questions Hecher's guilt continues to investigate the murder for years, and digs up shocking new information. A number of scenarios cast suspicion on other possible perpetrators. Did the sons of a wealthy Cuban do it? Were the operators of a gambling enterprise out to get Kriger? Was a prominent politician behind the slaying? Did a vicious underworld figure do the bidding of a criminal gang? Was a love triangle the basis for the shooting? Murder in Palm Beach is the tale of a man whose deeds have sent him plummeting to the bottom, and powerful forces determined to keep him there. A murder mystery with all the ingredients to keep the reader riveted, it is primarily a powerful story of redemption.
The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe...until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.
Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.
Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.
