But when a blizzard strands them in a remote mountain cabin, their rivalry morphs into a fierce passion. Kavan begins to have second thoughts about deceiving his new lover.

Hi everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. For me, not so much, but I’m still staying positive, especially since I’m proud to announce my newest project!
I’m so excited to be releasing a new novella under Xyla Turner’s Lady Guardians series, which is part of the Kindle World books on Amazon. This is such a wonderful series and I’m so proud to be apart of it with such a shrew of amazing authors.
For my novella, I’ll be releasing Lady Guardians: The Ultimate Risk, which is all about Raven, as she tries to find herself due to a tragedy that she has experienced years before. She meets Ryan, who helps her overcome her issues, but will soon learn that their relationship is tested due to an issue he has with her ultimate passion.
Here is the synopsis:
Raven Howard has always lived life on the edge. No matter what, she is always willing to try new things and just enjoy life. While her personal life is adventurous, she does have a balance with her professional life by being a kindergarten teacher. She loves kids and hopes to have some one day.
Despite her family’s disapproval, one of the things Raven loves to do is ride her Street Triple R on the weekends. It’s a great way for her to relax and just be on the open road for a few hours.
When her friend, Tess, mentioned that a new Lady Guardian chapter would be opening in Houston, she was all for becoming a member. A past incident involving her brother threatens to rekindle memories that she nor her family want to relive. She is willing to move on, but it could destroy the tenuous relationship she has with her family. Is Raven willing to make the choice that is best for her, or will she bend to please her family?
Ryan Baxter is going through a lot while being a single father to his five-year-old daughter, Kendall. His wife passed away a year ago and he is still trying to pick up the pieces of his life. This young father is trying to be strong for Kendall, but sometimes his shattered heart and soul make him question whether he can survive the emotional storm of his wife’s death.
When he meets Kendall’s teacher, Raven, during a parent/teacher conference, Ryan is instantly smitten with her. That’s a feeling he hasn’t felt for anyone since his wife’s passing. As the two slowly connect, the attraction they have is undeniable, but also scary.
When Ryan finds out about Raven’s passion for fast bikes and the open road, he immediately disapproves, which is an issue for Raven. Although Raven discovers Ryan’s reason for his disapproval, a war of wills ensues. If Raven wouldn’t stop riding for her family, then she won’t for Ryan. Will her decisions drive away the man that she has fallen in love with?
Raven has a lot to deal with from all directions. Will she be able to keep everything under control, or will it all come crashing down around her?
Lady Guardians: The Ultimate Risk will be available on October 29th, but you can pre-order your copy now on Amazon:
Good morning!!! Resisting Temptation, the second book from the Into You series, is now available! The second book of the series chronicles the relationship between Reece and Troy, as they try to resist each other while working at Suds -Richmond.
This book is a bit different from Into You, as Reece and Troy have a love/hate relationship throughout the story, but it does have the same daily issues from Suds- Richmond as it did from Suds- Harrison in Into You.
Here is an extended excerpt from the story as Reece and Troy meet for the first time:
After the three and half hour drive, I arrived in Houston late that night. I was able to unpack and relax before my first day of work at Suds. Honestly, I was nervous about going there, mainly because of meeting Troy. After all of the stories Vanessa told me, I tried not to judge him, but I don’t know if I want to be working for someone that is basically an ass. I have dealt with a lot of men who felt they could control women because they work under them. For me, I’m not going to fall for this man’s antics. Even now, as I was standing in the lobby of Suds, staring at the man who was going to be my boss, I had to admit, he did look good, but I wouldn’t touch him if he was the last man on Earth.
I looked at him, as his hand went through his jet black hair. It was cropped, but was a little long in the front, as he pushed some away from his face. His skin was pecan-colored and smooth. Even from his Suds uniform, he looked as if he worked out. His cocky ass knew he looked good, which was an even bigger turn off for me.
“Is your cousin always so mean?” Troy asked.
“Since I’ve known her.”
Troy gave a wide grin, which didn’t impress me at all. If he’s trying to flirt with me, he’s going to have to try a little harder.
“Are you just going to stare at me, or are you going to show me around the store?”
Jamarcus tried not to laugh as he turned his back to us. Troy didn’t know what to say as he cleared his throat.
“Yeah, let’s go.”
“Cool. It was nice meeting you, Jamarcus.”
He nodded as he continued ringing up another customer.
“Jamarcus seems real cool.” I said as I fell into step with Troy. We were walking down the hall to go towards the exit.
“He is. He’s the best assistant manager I’ve had since I’ve been here, and I have had several.”
He opened the door for me as I thanked him before walking outside.
“Have you been to any of the Suds locations before?” Troy asked.
“I’ve been to the location that Vanessa worked at.”
“As you can see, this location is laid out differently from the Harrison location.”
“I’ve noticed that. The restaurant is in the back and the salon is in the middle.”
“Yeah; but the policies are all the same. We still do the Item of the Month, which you can receive commission on…”
“Wait, wait, wait. Why would I need to know about the Item of the Month? I’m not running the register.”
Troy gave me a cocky grin, which made me a bit irritated.
“Oh, so Vanessa didn’t tell you that you’ll be running the register too. Since I just lost a cashier.”
I gave him the death stare. “You’re joking,”
“I’m not joking. You see Jamarcus running the register, so until you find someone, you have to be a cashier.”
I took a deep breath, ready to kill Vanessa. Of course she didn’t tell me that! She just said I’ll be handling the logistics of the store, not being a cashier!
“Wow, your own cousin just played you.”
“I’m sure she was going to mention it. Eventually.”
Troy laughed. “Whatever. Anyway, let me show you around the facility and then we can go to the office to look over some paperwork.”
I nodded as he walked away from me. I was still stunned about the news he just gave me, but if I have to be both the office manager and cashier, then Vanessa and Mark better be paying me double for doing two jobs.
Once he showed me the facility, we went back inside to the office, where I sat in the seat in front of his desk. He motioned for me to come over so I could stand closer to him.
“You’re not going to be able to see anything from over there.”
“I’m sure I still can.”
“Are you afraid to stand close to me?” He flirtatiously asked.
“I’m not, but I prefer to sit right here.”
Troy gave a cocky grin, which was starting to irritate me. The man might be sexy, but his attitude was very annoying. He’s full of himself, which not going to fly with me.
“Suit yourself. Anyway, everything you need to know about the system will be available on an app which I’ll give you the sign-on for to access. With the app, you can do payroll, reports, and check on the daily sale totals.”
“What about the store bills?”
“That will be in this file cabinet.” Troy said as he pointed to the black cabinet behind him.
“So, who was doing all the paperwork when Rosario got promoted?”
He sighed. “I was, so if you need to ask any questions, then just let me know.”
I nodded. “Okay.”
“That’s pretty much all you need to know, the job is pretty simple.”
“It sounds like it is.”
“Trust me, it is.”
He licked his lips, which made me feel some type of way. One of the things I love about a man is his lips, and Troy definitely has them; but I wasn’t falling for that. He knew what he was doing, so I wasn’t going to play this game with him.
“Troy, if you think that I’m going to be like these other females here, then you’re wrong. I’m here to do a job, not become one of your groupies.”
“Who said that I was dating anyone here?”
I laughed. “You really think I’m stupid? I know all about your after-work, or should I say during work, escapades. I’m here to keep your ass in line, so focus on that instead of mine.”
Troy looked taken aback by what I’d just said. I leaned back in my seat and smiled.
“So, whatever plan you have to get me into your bed is not going to work with me. I’m just here to work, nothing more.”
Troy nodded. “Alright then, Reece. Believe what you want, but it was never my intention to try to sleep with you.”
I gave him an unconvinced look and he shook his head. “Whatever you say, Troy. Now, are there any bills that need to be paid now?”
He shook his head. “They’re all current, unless you want to check the ledger.”
“I would like to,”
He got up as I continued to look at him. Now that I have made my presence known, maybe he can do his damn job. I hope.
If you have not read the first story, it is available only on Amazon:

Amazon Purchase Link:
From the moment Tyler Bradshaw first lays eyes on Madison Kanate, it’s a dream come true. She is everything he wants, yet everything he feels he cannot have. He is determined to keep his distance, but he can’t, not with the love she offers him. They become the best of friends. That works flawlessly, until she wants more….
That was seven years ago.
Madison has come a long way since falling apart at any reminder of Tyler. He had left her questioning God’s plan for her life, and uncertain of how to move forward. Eventually, she takes charge of her life, putting memories of Tyler to rest with a successful interior design business, along with many charitable projects. Anything else, especially love, ranks a distant second.
Tyler and Madison reunite through the shenanigan of Mason, Madison’s twin brother. Tyler wishes he could change the past… but life does not offer do-overs. Even so, he believes God has provided a golden opportunity for him—his last chance to win Madison’s heart. As he begins to open up about his childhood and trailing baggage, Madison realizes that his faith has been built in the face of adversity.
But Tyler’s childhood holds a secret even he doesn’t know. In the face of a staggering revelation that challenges the fabric of his faith, Tyler drops a bombshell of his own. When Madison tries to walk away, she recognizes that deep down she wants happily-ever-after. With her faith rekindled, she decides to trust God, believing she will not be left to pick up the pieces of her heart all over again. But will Tyler allow himself to heal so he can let Madison in?

His heart rate kicked up and he raked a hand over his head as uneasy dread shot through his veins. Still, wisdom demanded he move speedily to help, even if the situation would force him to come face-to-face with someone he was unprepared to see.
“God, help her,” he prayed aloud, before jumping into action.
He moved swiftly to grab his Jeep keys from the coffee table then rushed through the door. He did not relish the journey that now lay before him. Nor did he wish to confront the one thing that would never let him rest—the one painful remorse that continually aggravated his gut. The one thing in his life he needed to fix—his relationship with the woman he had nicknamed Em.
Madison Emma Kanate. She was his first love….
Once his soul found her, he loved her.
One look and he was helpless to her pull. She had caught his attention and lingered in his heart ever since. He had endured two years of being near Madison—drowning in her love. She always stirred him. Around her, he constantly felt the flutter of butterfly wings in his stomach. She made him feel things he longed for… things he couldn’t have.
Despite all the love she offered him, he could not bring himself to reach for her. Fear held him bound, propelling him to escape the source of his misery.
At the first opportunity, he had left it all behind.
He had run away like a frightened animal.
And he had kept moving. He hadn’t looked back.
But, he couldn’t outrun the memories or the guilt that haunted him.
