Hi! Many of you may know that I am a nail polish fanatic. I love nail polish because of the delightful colours, textures, finishes, et cetera, that I can appreciate at all times. My desk is by a big window looking out into the backyard and I love the sparkle of the sun on my nails while I type. (Okay, I write ALL THE TIME, so I have no time for hobbies! Lol!) Anyway, it’s also a fun way to bring out my creativity in a visual way.
The reason I’m telling you this is because… BIG NEWS… I was able to convince my editor at St. Martin’s Press that I should write a book where the heroine is starting her own indie nail polish company! Of course, in addition to fun stuff about nail polish, there’s intrigue, domination, a sexy man from her past, more domination, and a reluctant marriage of convenience!
As part of the writing and the promoting, I am hoping to connect with nail polish bloggers and vloggers to talk about the book and…
I’m so excited about this…
Literary Lacquers is going to produce the nail polish collection from the book! Squeee!!!! I’m absolutely thrilled!
The book and the polish collection will be released on August 23rd and I can hardly wait!!!
They had decided to ban the book and cancelled my pre-order. So… if you pre-ordered it before, or want to now, it’s available!
All books in the Mastered By series are stand-alone HEA stories with no cliff-hangers and can be read in any order.
To pre-order on Amazon:
The other on-line stores have it for pre-order, too. (They never had a problem with it!)
Congrats to those who won my last three giveaways with Goodreads! For those of you who were not as lucky, I’ve got some good news…
I’m holding another giveaway! That’s right: this one is for a chance to win one of FOUR paperback copies of Stepbrother, Mine through Goodreads!
Again, no purchase necessary, and the giveaway is open until midnight tomorrow (May 15th!).
How far will she go to get the life she’s always wanted? Dana’s always had a clear vision of how her life would go and how she’d get there, but when her father dies during her final year of college, her whole world threatens to topple down. In desperate need of money, she takes a drastic step. She decides to auction off her virginity.
Mason is used to getting what he wants. The head of his own corporate empire, he has wealth, means, and no shortage of beautiful women ready to fulfill his every need. But despite having it all, Mason is bored. Until he comes face-to-face with a woman from his past. Unable to let Dana slip away again, Mason bids on the one thing he’s always wanted, even if it is completely forbidden. He’s fantasied about having her to himself for years, touching her smooth skin, tasting her sweet lips, but Dana is off-limits, or is she? What started out as a way for each of them to get what they’ve always wanted is about to turn into so much more….
Please let your friends know! 🙂
And stay tuned for my next Goodreads Giveaway, starting May 16th!

After a very rocky road, The Captive is finally available!
Her ultimate sexual fantasy brought to life…
Kalie has a deep, dark fantasy about being kidnapped and taken by two strong, powerful men. Being totally at their mercy with no chance of escape. It haunts her dreams. Draws her with an overwhelming intensity.
Now her friend Becca has arranged to bring that fantasy to life, just like she’s done with their other friends’ fantasies. Kalie can hardly wait to be bound and overpowered.
But when she finds herself in the clutches of these two strangers, she is shocked at her desperate need to be possessed by the man named Erik.
Erik King feels a strong draw to the young woman whose fantasy he is helping bring to life. But he refuses to feel anything for her except the lustful stirrings derived from having her at his complete mercy. He doesn’t intend to see her again after this fantasy scenario is done. Being involved with someone as sweet as Kalie is bound to bring him pain. Just like the woman before her.
And Erik doesn’t intend to be hurt again.
Why a rocky road, you ask? Even though I had it up for pre-order for a couple of months, Amazon decided to ban it and cancel the pre-order. (For those who had pre-ordered it, apparently you were told that I hadn’t sent them the files in time, but I actually had everything to them well ahead of time, so that was a little frustrating.)
Anyway, I seem to have convinced Amazon to release The Captive after all, with some adjustments to the description and to the cover. The other vendors (Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple, etc.) had no problem with the originals.
For fun, here are the “before” and “after” covers for Amazon. The other vendors still have the “before” cover. (The changes are that I shaded the area over her hip and moved part of her corset up to cover little more breast.)
It’s still possible Amazon might decide to pull it again, so if you want to buy The Captive through Amazon, you might want to do it soon!
And, in case you’re wondering, Erik King is Mr. King from The Office Slave series, so if you love him as much as I do, you’ll definitely want to read this story! If you haven’t read The Office Slave series, no worries. This story works as a standalone too. 🙂
Note: If you already have final story of The Office Slave series, you have this story. Also, it will be included with Mastered by her Captor, which comes out on June 21st.
The Captive is also the fourth story of the Red Hot Fantasies series. You can read the stories of the other four women in The Male Stripper, The Stranger, the original The Office Slave story, and the upcoming The Bridal Affair (which will be released within the next couple of months.)
The exciting conclusion of The Office Slave series is out now! It’s available today on it’s own, as well as a part of the final boxed set containing two stories – On His Knees, and a Bonus Story about Mr King!
The whole series is now available as 7 individual ebooks or as 4 collections (2 stories each.) The collections are also available in print!
Buying the box sets is the best deal, though, since they’re each the same price as buying one of the stories individually! 🙂

Will his need to be in control destroy his only chance at happiness?
“No panties, Sylvia. You are a dirty girl.”
She flattened one hand on his chest. “I’m a very dirty, naughty girl. You need to punish me.”
Those last words came out a little needier than she’d intended.
“You still want me to master you?”
She bit her lip, hesitating, then finally nodded.
He sighed, his gaze shifting back to her. “Well, you found the perfect way to convince me. Turn around.”
Since there are 7 stories in the series, I’ve thrown in a bonus story called The Captive. It’s a brand new story and, if you’ve been following The Office Slave series, then I thought you’d enjoy seeing more of the sexy Mr. King. 🙂
Note: This is also available in print (as a single book with two stories).
The individual stories will be released over the next two weeks. Buying the box set is the best deal, though, since it’s the same price as buying either of the stories individually! 🙂

Master, Mr. King. Sylvia will do anything to please him as he dominates her with a strong hand—commanding her, disciplining her, even sharing her with his business partners—just like Mr. Grant did. Mr. King fulfils her every fantasy. But unlike Mr. Grant, he cherishes her, and shows her the love she craves. She truly wishes she could give him what he wants. Her love.
