loveentwined final cover


‘Do not be afraid of love.’ He pulled the robe from her shoulders. It swished to the floor in a whisper of silk.

She should protest; she did not know him. Instead, she sighed with the cool night air against her bare breast.

Warm hands drew her close, a comfort as much as a command. When he wrapped his arms around her, the bedroom walls fell away. She smelled the sea and the wind whipped around them.

She dug her fingers into his back and remembered…the way he nipped her neck when he sank into her; his deep, satisfied grunt when she clung to him; how he pinned her down, holding back the release until she would die if he didn’t let her come right now…

She did know him. He was her Commandant. She molded herself against him and his chin dipped to rest on her head.

When he pulled back, a thick, black curl winged away from his forehead. Full lips curled into dimples and moonlight shone in his eyes. ‘My love.’

She rubbed her nipples into the curls sprinkled across his chest and finally, he lifted her and laid her down on the water’s surface. His body, all hard planes and angles, pushed her down. She wrapped her legs around him atop a swelling wave.

He murmured approval as he cupped her buttocks, lifted her hips and drove into her all in one deft motion.

‘We are one.’ He said against the column of her throat as he rammed into her.

The night rose and fell on her sighs.

He impaled her, took her breath away as she clung to him in the ocean spray. Their limbs slammed together as he tossed her about on a wild ride. The dark waves crested, carrying them away as the night shattered …   

Amelie kept her eyes closed and licked her lips. It felt real; he felt real. Too soon, consciousness chased her fantasy away.

She sat up, staring across the bedroom at the pre-dawn outside her window. She turned on the bedside lamp and a golden halo sprayed the room. “Just a dream.”

Her nipples still tingled in arousal. She pulled off the chemise.


He stood outside her bedroom window, watching her, his square jaw slack with need. His tanned skin glowed in lamplight…

Amelie pulled the chemise to her breast and turned off the lamp. She got out of bed and crept across the room. She stood as close as she dared to the cool glass pane.

He was gone.

Don’t be ridiculous. Of course, he had never been there, couldn’t have been there. The dream had shaken her up.

She watched the purple sky lighten to pink as the sun climbed above the wintry clouds.

In the dream she had known him, but the memory eluded her now. It faded from her consciousness as quickly as the street lamps winked out over Central Park thirty-six stories below.


The reasons why I loved this book….please allow me to count the ways. First, it

The reasons why I loved this book….please allow me to count the ways. First, it had a little of everything! You had your classic contemporary scenes, your paranormal scenes, your historical scenes, mystery, intrigue, and HOT HOT sex scenes.  This book was literally a five course meal that left you oh sooo satisfied when you finished the book. Once you open it, be prepared to sit down and read it straight through.  You will NOT be able to put this book down once you start begin reading it.

We start out with an unusual occupation which introduces us to our main characters.  Amelie is a jewelry designer, one of the best in her field.  She draws the attention of Roman, who happens to be big in the industry because he believes she is working for his arch-nemesis and stealing his designs.  Seems like a pretty simply plot?  But this is only the first layer…lol.
Amelie has dreamed of Roman for years and is shocked when she is contracted for a job for him.  She never realized until then WHO her mystery lover was until she meets Roman face-to-face.  The heat and chemistry basically leap off of the pages.  Roman wants her with a fierceness, and used to getting what he wants her figures it’s just a matter of time.  He doesn’t realize in the beginning that this will be a seduction of the heart.
The plot thickens when our soon-to-be lovers land in the place where they will be working.  Roman intends to unmask her as a thief, Amelie intends to keep this professional and Roman at arms links, and our resident ghost, who has been waiting a LONG time for Amelie has quite another plan. Murder attempts on Roman escalate and the past comes to light almost too late.
This book is full of twists and turns that will leave you breathless and begging for more.  The complicated plot draws you in and refuses to release you until the story is told.  It is an incredible journey of two souls that were always meant for each other, but never given the chance at a life together. It has just as many thigh-clinching moments, as it does heart-wrenching.  I loved the journey and was so sad that it was over…or is it?

In The Key Of Love

I should have known I would end up here... Give me a good book and I'm in heaven. Especially romance, mystery, mayhem, the fantastic and the fey. Give me a laptop and I'm writing any one of these, and not in any particular order.

  1. What I love most about Fall is the crisp air, hoodies (no more need to worry about swimsuit body!), the changing colors of the leaves, HALLOWEEN, cuddling with my fiance’ on chilly night, caramel apples, apple cider with sugar and cinnamon donuts, and pumpkin pie.

    1. One Halloween party at my house we dunked for apples. My mom had the apples in this big metal trough and I remember at the time I had a fear of water. I thought I was going to drown at nine years old. But it was fun!
