It started with a mistletoe kiss...


The boy next door, the hockey star, he’s never noticed her like that before…

With Emma Gains’ big city partnership on the line—the last thing she needs is a small town holiday romance. But when an urgent call has her flying home and working side-by-side with Evan—her old crush—her tempting as-all-get-out brother’s best friend, will those pesky lingering feelings get stirred up? Or worse?


Emma has blossomed. She is also off-limits. 

Retired from the NHL, Evan Heartley finds himself facing a new dangerous game—coping with an unexpected attraction to sweet little Emma. Skating outside the friend zone is risky business. Also foolish since he’s put down roots, bought into the Gains family’s veterinary practice, and Emma has no plans to stay.


They should play it safe — One problem — Their chemistry is off the charts.

But what happens when she leaves?


Author Note: This is a flirty fun, sweet and sexy small town, friends to lovers, holiday romance packed with a zany good time, a hotter than heck hockey hero, a hairless cat, a nosy best friend, an even nosier mother, and a sub cast of cute animals. And of course mistletoe kisses! ​

Work in Progress

I created a fun crime romance short story for an anthology.

I love these characters so much, that I have to give them a novel. Maybe two... 

Each story is a stand-alone romantic comedy full of flirtation and hijinx. I hope you'll love them as much as I do.

This crime is personal—the treasure rightfully hers.


Lila Grace is a gutsy thief, a talented artist, and an FBI’s pretty prize. Defying trouble, and on the sneak, she is determined to do what it takes to steal back her family heirloom.

Lying in wait, hunky FBI agent Ford Lavato is fingertips away from making an arrest, snagging Lila in a tempting trap. But can he catch the elusive thief as she shamelessly toys and flirts her way out of the tangled up predicament?

The heat rises, and they both get more than they bargained—stakes increase, and the game ignites. Is it the end, or just the beginning?

See who will come out on top, in this fun-and-flirty game of cat and mouse.


Guilty Beginnings is a stand-alone short story and the prequel, meet-cute, to the novel Guilty For More.​

Enjoy more of Ford and Lila's simmering tension, and cat and mouse games, in their next criminally fun and flirty adventure. 


Spoiler alert: The Grace sister's steal Duane, the naughty chihuahua, and that's the least of their problems...
