Is their passion and love strong enough to break her chains?

Andalucia Spain, 1489 Innocent Beatriz is desperate to escape the threat of a miserable marriage to a cruel Marquis. Forced into the betrothal by her ruthless merchant papa, her only hope is to conceal her identity and become a servant in a nearby castle–a life drastically different from her comfortable upbringing.

Tomas doesn’t know what to make of his well-spoken new servant girl. Her beauty and charm captivates the military hero; her mysterious nature intrigues him. And the desire she ignites burns brighter with each glance, as does his longing to claim her for his own.

Beatriz can’t resist Tomas’ passion nor deny the heat of her own. But neither the lush countryside nor the walls of the opulent Moorish castle can entirely protect her–and if he were to discover her secret, she could be torn away from him forever. Yet how can she sustain his love if she’s living a lie?


Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

I write in several, including contemporary, historical, romcom, PNR, sci-fi, thriller, suspense, urban fantasy, erotic, erotica, reverse harem, menage

How do you come up with ideas?…

They pop into my head. I could be driving, grocery shopping, spending time with friends and something I see or hear gets me to thinking…’what if’ – and the plot starts to form.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Revisions. It’s the only way for me to make certain I get deep POV and a great pace.

When did you write your first book?…

When I was nine. I called it “Dimples the Adventurous Flea”. It was about a flea that jumped from a French poodle to an English bulldog, to an Irish setter, etc., etc. in order to see the world. Made copies and sold them to my friends’ parents in the neighborhood. My first book tour.

I’m an Amazon and international bestselling novelist who writes passionate romance for every taste – ‘heat with heart’ – for traditional publishers and indie. Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Romantic Times and numerous online sites have praised my work. I’ve won Readers’ Choice Awards, was named a finalist in the EPIC competition, received a Book of the Year award, The Golden Nib Award, awards of merit in the RWA Holt Medallion competitions, and second place in the NEC RWA contests. I’m featured in the Novel and Short Story Writer’s Market. Before penning romances, I worked at a major Hollywood production company in Story Direction.
On a less serious note I’m an admitted and unrepentant chocoholic, brake for Mexican restaurants, and have been known to moan like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally while wolfing down tostadas. I’ve flown a single-engine airplane (freaking scary), rewired an old house using an ‘electricity for dummies’ book, and am horribly shy despite the hot romances I write.
