Here's a little taste of my books:
      Can two wrongs make a right? 
      Nadia's happy home became a prison when a tragedy ended her marriage to the man of her dreams. Six months after he left, she's still wearing his ring and can't seem to get over him. All she wants is to forget, to encounter a complete stranger who can arouse her to the point of complete abandon. 
      When a handsome customer at work proposes a night of passion, Nadia battles with the choice to give in or walk away.  But his playful teasing is too difficult to ignore. When desire and emotion collide, she realizes she's not the only one in pain, and not the only one living with past hurts. Can a single night of sexual awakening heal them both?
Be Warned: anal sex, public exhibition

           "When he looked at her, it was as though he saw her naked. He undressed her with his eyes, but she wanted him to undress her with his hands, his teeth, his command. Diverting her gaze away before he could see the arousal in her eyes, she quickly put down the check on the table and tried to rush away when he wrapped his fingers around her wrist.
           Nadia snuck a quick peek to his face and he flashed her a smile. "When do you get off?"
          "I don't think it's any of your business."
          He pulled her hand until she was leaning over the table and her hand was maneuvered to his crotch.
          Oh my. . . . The bulge beneath her palm was huge, filling her mind with lustful thoughts and desires.
         "I think it's very much my business," he growled through gritted teeth.

       Is love stronger than magic?
       Morgan has never encountered a spell she couldn’t cast or a curse she couldn’t break. With her natural knack for witchcraft, she runs a magic store that helps others. When a handsome but cursed man walks into her store, she is pit against magic stronger than her own.
        Daniel lived an ordinary life before he ended up on a witch’s bad side and was jinxed with non-stop bad luck. Out of sheer desperation he visits Morgan’s Magic Shop. Morgan agrees to help him and they must work together to find the witch and pinpoint the hex she used in order to undo it. As they search, feelings ignite and a romance blossoms. Will this bad luck spell end their love, or will their love be strong enough to break the incantation?
Be Warned: sex toys

          His lustful gaze met hers. Lust that matched her own and her heart pulsed fast inside her chest. Her center grew damp, and she longed for his touch.
          "I think your thoughts were similar to mine."
          She didn't reply to Daniel's statement. Instead, Morgan tried to stand. Her knees grew weak as she rose to her feet.
          Daniel stood, too. "You can't deny you were thinking about it, too."
          "I wasn't denying anything."

       Ginelle Jinx, recently single, heartbroken, and unemployed, decides to cast an impotency spell on her cheating ex. She doesn't expect the spell to have consequences, but her house catches on fire.
        Five hunky firemen come to Ginelle’s rescue, one of them being Seth Tompson, her high school sweetheart. With one fire out, she finds old flames and new ones mingling as she indulges the pleasures her five firemen have on offer.
       But what will happen when she realizes she still loves Seth? Does he feel the same? Can an old flame become a raging inferno?
Be Warned: menage sex (FMMMMM), m/m sex, multiple partners, anal sex, orgies

           Seth had a perfectly muscled chest and she wanted to run her fingertips along the ridges and crevices of his spectacular body. No, she wanted more than just to touch it. She wanted to kiss it and lick it and taste every inch of this man. Her nipples hardened and her pussy pooled with warm juices.
           Her breath caught in her throat as a moan of need and desire escaped her lips before she could contain it. She looked into Seth's eyes and saw the same lust that reflected her own.
           He took two large steps toward her and his hands entangled in her wet hair. Seth tilted her head slightly and his lips crashed over hers. The need she felt within her, she also tasted in his mouth.

No More Doubts

Do you doubt yourself? I know I do. I always think I'm not good enough, I'm not this or that, and I tend to let my own insecurities get in the way. Although, I have to admit that I've been really good at staying positive, sometimes I still slip into one of those bad moments. So the other day, I went into a self pity zone (probably fueled by all those allergy meds that make me a bit crazy). I looked at my writing and thought to myself 'I'm not that good'. Yes, I can whip out a sexy shorty with drop your panties smexiness in it, but can I write anything thrilling, mysterious, and thought provoking, with characters that feel like real people? Probably not.

As I was evaluating myself as an author, I remembered that almost ten years ago, before I ever even considered becoming a published author, I have written two novels and posted them online under a different pen name. Those stories have always been in the back of my mind, and one of these days I will rewrite and publish them. However, this time, I went to the site where the stories are posted and browsed through some of the reviews there. Needless to say, after I read comments like the ones below, I started to feel much better about myself as an author. Here are what a few of them had to say:

"I definitely enjoy your writing. And I'd like to thank you very much for writing this and giving me a chance to become acquainted with it." - Reviewer #1

"Well a damn good story that's for sure! I really should be in bed sleeping, but I had to finish reading this story first." - Reviewer #2

"Oh wow. This story is amazing. I love the law aspect to it as well. But seriously just... wow....(spoiler deleted).... God, that is seriously just insanely... wow. Haha. Stunned me. I feel like everyone in this fic was too goddamned smart for me. Usually I have the chance to figure things out as clues are dropped but it seemed like Ginger and Lucas and everyone else just always detected the lies straight away, looking into things that I didn't even realize needed looking into.

This fic though... wow, I really love it. I know I keep saying that and I probably sound like a ditz for doing so but seriously I am just... awed (: Plus, the chemistry between Lucas & Ginger is great :D

 I love this I love this I love this. I wish there were more incredible fics out there like this. It really made me think - which is nice because as much as I love those all-out high school romance cliches, even I have to .

 You're an excellent writer and I will definitely check out more of your works, especially if you slipped a little of Lucas & Ginger into one of your stories (: I could never mind a little more of them... or a lot more of them :D Haha. Keep up the great work! You must be insanely smart to even think of all this. This story is freaking brilliant." - Reviewer #3

"I can only imagine how much time, talent and passion it took you to write this story. Its like a great mystery novel with romance in it too. There are some stories you read and you think to yourself 'I should be reading this story out of a book I paid for, than on the internet for free'. Yours is defiantly one of those stories.

In my opinion your a good author if you can turn a cliché into your own by putting a different spin on the story, but Brilliant authors with loads of talent can come up with a totally unique plot. You are one of those authors.

Your characterization  is also very good, you built up Lucas and Ginger's characters, by expressing there emotions brilliantly and portraying their love for each other.

Thanks for writing a great ending and never disappointing me with your brilliant piece of writing." - Reviewer #4

"Wow, I just read this story and I love it. I'm amazed that you managed to write such a story within a year -well done! " - Reviewer #5

Okay, so those are just five of the 100+ reviews that story got. Not all were as expressive (most just said 'Good') and not all were great. However, after reading those comments, I asked myself the same question I started out with: Can I write anything thrilling, mysterious, and thought provoking, with characters that feel like real people?

My new answer: Yes, yes I can.

Truth be told. That story from where these reviews came from has always held a special place in my heart. It's the first thing I have EVER written. (poems not included) Now, I'm more motivated then ever to rewrite this story and share it with the world. :-)
