His life just got complicated.
River Jackson’s riding high as the Denver Flyer’s starting quarterback, until an injury sidelines him. When Coach needs a volunteer to deliver donated football uniforms to the learning center in The Grid, River’s glad to go. What he hadn’t expected was the tiny woman with sparkling dark eyes and dreams bigger than the old schoolhouse she’s renting. He has no intention of falling for her, especially with his career on the ropes.
After a disaster turns Soledad Marcos’ life upside down, she’s glad the learning center has given her and her daughter a stable life. She buries the secrets of her dark past and looks forward to the future–a future that doesn’t include a dashing football player and his desire to help. Her students love River so she’s forced to bury the unease that has held her back for years.
As Soledad draws closer to River, she learns his tough exterior masks a compassionate and tender soul she’ll resist at all costs, but turning her back on love means a bigger sacrifice that could cost more than a broken heart.
Why did you write this book?
Billionaires and Christmas make the season bright, so I thought what better way than to enjoy the holiday than by combining the two.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Anything romance, but I also can’t resist a good psychological thriller.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I find I have new book boyfriend with nearly every book I read, but for heroines, Scarlett O’Hara and Elizabeth Bennet are firmly emblazoned in mind.
What are you working on at the moment?
As yet untitled, Book 4 of the Beaumont Brides Series takes place in the Outer Banks, one of my favorite places to visit. Tessa receives the shock of her life when the company she works for closes its New York branch. She escapes to a beach house on Manteo Banks, and into the arms of Dillon Lowe whose dark past threatens to expose secrets she had thought long buried.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Never Kiss Goodbye, Book 8 of the Crystal Creek Series releases January 26, 2021, and Beaumont Brides Box Set Books 1-3 releases May 25, 2021.
