Chasing Arlo is available on Amazon.
A mafia princess doesn’t belong with a lowly soldier.
At least, that is what Arlo thinks.
He’s used to women only wanting steamy one-night stands and nothing more. Not until, to his surprise, he’s pursued by none other than the mafia princess herself.
Layla makes it her mission in life to tease and flirt with Arlo endlessly. It’s been a cat and mouse game ever since they met.
But if she only knew the truth. If she knew all the things he has done for her family, it would both amaze and horrify her.
With Arlo, however, it’s all or nothing, so when a bombing from the Russian mob occurs and a possible threat from inside the family looms, he steps up to keep Layla safe.
With everything unraveling around her, Layla quickly realizes chasing Arlo and more importantly, keeping him might be the only thing that saves her life…
Playing Jasper is Available on Amazon.
I love to play the game.
Love them and leave them.
Then I met my match, Jackie Smith, and everything changed.
She’s a reporter, and I’m a made man. It’s a disaster waiting to happen. It doesn’t matter that she could shatter my life and all I’ve worked for…I want her.
Underneath her sweet, caring exterior, she’s hiding pain from her past, and yearning for revenge. I can leverage this to my advantage. I can demand her loyalty, her unconditional love.
It’s the same game, with a bit of a twist.
The only problem is…she might be playing me.
Playing Jasper is a finalist for a RONE Award in the Suspense category.
Destroying Dominic is available on Amazon.
I don’t dance.
I don’t date.
I don’t fall in love.
What’s the point, when you’re a mob cleaner? No woman wants a man like that.
But there’s one woman that I can’t get off my mind: Stephanie Barclay. Even with the hell she’s been through, she’s still a sweet dreamer with a smile that lights up the world.
She’s my boss’s next hit, and my next cleaning job.
All I ever wanted was my happily-ever-after.
As a wedding planner and in the stories I write, it’s my job to make other people’s dreams come true. But I’ll never have that happy ending in my own life. I can’t risk it, because anyone who finds out about my past is as good as dead.
One man might be an exception, though: Dominic Scarlatti, the man that just a couple months ago killed and buried a monster for me.
Tall, strong, and dangerous, but with a tenderness inside that no one else can see. I’m determined to make him my hero even if it kills me.
Destroying Dominic won the Bronze Medal in the Romantic Suspense category at the Reader’s Favorite International Book Awards.
Craving Loyalty Is available now on Amazon.
Noun. ‘A strong feeling of support or allegiance.’
For some, loyalty can be bought. For others, it’s earned. But the thing about loyalty—it can change in an instant. All it takes is one act, one decision, and loyalty shifts to betrayal in the blink of an eye…a sin which cannot go unpunished.
Not in this world.
But sometimes things happen beyond our control, forcing our allegiances to change. Like the mob enforcer who wants nothing more than to seduce the assassin hired to kill him. Or the FBI agent who falls for the woman whose past holds ties with the mafia.
Yet, no matter the reason or motive, the consequences of betrayal are always deadly.
Because in this world everyone is…

BTS Winner for best cover and rising star.
Now that prohibition was over, FBI agent Michael Flynn hoped to enjoy the quiet life and a chance to finally concentrate on finding his best friend’s sister. He’d been in love with her since he first laid eyes on her picture. Unfortunately, the more he searched the more he realized she wasn’t just missing. Eryn was hiding from one of the most notorious gangsters around. One who wouldn’t rest until he knew she was dead.
Eryn O’Malley had been moving around for years, doing whatever legal, or illegal job she could find to survive. No time for romance or a normal life. A one night stand with a handsome man at the county fair seemed like just the ticket to escape for a moment from her troubled life. However, finding out he was a G-man wasn’t part of the plan. Now he was on her trail. Whether to arrest or rescue her, she wasn’t sure, and she couldn’t wait around to find out. If he caught her, would he forgive her checkered past or would he always think of her as the gangster’s woman?
The Gangster’s Kiss is available now on Amazon.
John O’Malley’s sister is missing. All the clues of her disappearance lead to Hayward County, Wisconsin and the crooks and questionable sheriff that reside there. Pretending to be one of them, John takes a job as bodyguard for the sheriff’s beautiful sister, Grace. It seems like the perfect way to investigate their crimes and corruption, but when someone threatens to kill Grace, the job proves harder than he thought. Is she an innocent witness to a crime, or just as guilty as everyone else?
Grace Sullivan just wanted a normal life: find a good man, get married and have a family. She has had enough of looking the other way while her brother hides behind his sheriff’s badge to conduct shady dealings. Hiring a gangster named John to watch her is the final straw. When a face from the past threatens her life, she is forced to put her life in John’s hands, but as time goes on, all she really wants is to be in the gangster’s arms.
Men of Mayhem on Amazon.
Sometimes the line between good and bad simply depends which side you’re on…
Good guys can have unsavory secrets, while so-called criminals can live by a code of ethics rivaling that of any law enforcement agency. Bending the law for money, power, or revenge is one thing, but what if you’re bending it for your family—for love?
Who would choose to become involved with a man who walks on the dark side…
Some men will go to any lengths, legal or not, and make no apologies to protect their way of life and all they hold dear. But you don’t always choose who you love, and sometimes you just have to decide if you’re bold enough to risk it all and go along for the ride.
Thirteen masterful authors come together to present Men of Mayhem.
Compelling stories of loyalty and passion, love and lust, in which the moral and ethical lines are blurred, and call into question the notions of right and wrong.
What could be more exciting than taking a leap of faith…and landing in the arms of the last man you’d expect—but the only one who truly makes you feel alive?
What if your road to happiness leads to…
Men of Mayhem
