NOT QUITE PERFECT — Only Six More Days!

Blank white book w/path* * Coming August 25 * *

(Available now for pre-order on iTunes!)

Serial temp worker April Johnson is nothing like her wildly successful brothers. She doesn’t have an Olympic gold medal. She doesn’t have millions in the bank from a tech company she founded as a teenager. She doesn’t even have a place to live, not since her boyfriend sneaked off in the middle of the night—skipping out on the rent, his three-legged dog, and her. Now forced to move back home with her mother and grovel for a job from one of her brothers, April decides it’s past time she got serious about her life.

Zack Fain, on the other hand, has been too serious for years. After losing his wife to cancer at the age of twenty-six, he’s done nothing but work on his consulting business. But when he meets April at a new job, he forgets he’s a humorless suit who never gets emotionally involved. She makes him laugh, she turns him on, and he begins to wonder if it’s time he broke a few rules.
Although April refuses to get stuck in yet another dead-end relationship, Zack isn’t like any of the guys she’s dated before. This could be the real deal. This could be serious.

But is either of them ready for the kind of serious that lasts a lifetime?

At long last, the third book about the Johnson family is coming in less than a week. I’ll send an email to my mailing list as soon as the ebook goes live on Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo, so make sure you’ve signed up!

Note: Although this is technically #3 in the series, you don’t have to read the other books to enjoy this one. All of the romances in my books begin and end (happily) within the pages of the individual book.

Coming August 18! LOL Anthology


A group of authors who write sexy romantic comedy (some of whom are NYT best-sellers!) have gotten together to make an anthology of never-before-published short stories.

I’ve been lucky enough to be able to include a short story featuring Liam and Bev’s wedding in the backyard of the Johnson family home in Oakland. Titled Can’t Stop Wanting You, the story its #2.5 in the Oakland Hills series, taking place right after This Time Next Door (#2) and before my newest title, coming later this month, Not Quite Perfect. (#3)

Although I call the “Oakland Hills” books  a series, and number the books on the timeline, all of my work can be read on its own. The romances all begin and end (happily) within the pages of the individual novel or story.

Can’t Stop Wanting You is a short story about two people who get a second chance to stop hating each other. Their discovery is set during the wedding of their neighbors next door, Liam and Bev (from Love Handles, Oakland Hills #1).

It sounds confusing but makes perfect sense when you start reading. You’ll also discover a dozen other new writers for a very good price. All in ebook, all formats, all retailers.

August 18th!
