When Deacon Starkis sets his sights on the gorgeous young model gracing the pages of his glossy catalogue, he knows he has to have her. One problem. She’s not available. But that won’t stop Deacon. He’s a man used to getting what he wants and he wants Mia.


Mia is stunned when she receives an email from the elusive billionaire who owns the lingerie company she models for. He tells her he’s intrigued. He’s not the only one. But she knows she’d be a fool to throw away an eight year relationship for a brief affair with the head honcho. He doesn’t do relationships and she doesn’t do casual sex. It seems they’re at an impasse.

This was an interesting twist on the billionaire trope I like the whole modelling aspect, it was unique.

Mia is a lingerie model and the object of Deacon's affection. She has a deadbeat boyfriend and a sassy crazy BFF Who is also a model. Deacon falls for her at first site and he tries his damnedest to get her into his bed.

But his reputation precedes him and she treads lightly into this new relationship with a very powerful man with a history and a few secrets.

Their connection is electric and I loved the tension and sexy times. 
Deacon is a force of nature used to getting his way. Mia is independent and strong willed and doesn't give poor Deacon an inch LOL I love how she defied his nonsense almost at every turn.

I'm looking forward to more in this series. I loved these two.

When one door closes, another one opens. I closed the door to my business for the last time in 2011, which left me with a decision. What now? Find another location and move my nutrition business, go to work for someone else, or take a chance on my dream? I chose the latter and I’ve never looked back! 


I’ve always loved reading and writing, but it wasn’t until I jumped in with both feet and decided writing would be my career, instead of just a hobby, that my muse woke up from her deep slumber. It was like someone flipped a switch inside my head and stories just came pouring out. At the end of the day, I would often look at the keyboard and wonder, ‘Who the heck wrote that? Cause I’m pretty sure it wasn’t me!’


I don’t write books. I tell stories, or rather, I allow my characters to tell their stories through me. I’m not a plotter, never have been, never will be. Why? Because I have no idea how the story will evolve and it’s not my place to manipulate it. My job is to get to know these characters, figure out what makes them tick, then follow their journey wherever it takes me.


When I’m not writing, I’m daydreaming. Thankfully, I have an understanding husband and son who know I’ll re-join the land of the living just as soon as my muse decides it’s quitting time. I don’t work for myself. I work for her. She’s the boss. And I’m okay with that.
