Cora has dreams for her life that far exceed bartending at her cousin’s pub. She is lost and searching for a new path when her current one collides with Lord Eric Ashcroft. He is so handsome and charming that she is easily swept up in him. She wants to let down her walls and trust him but his world is full of so much that is strange to her. Should she set her dreams aside for his?

On a night where he almost made the biggest mistake of his life he meets Cora Allen. He is drawn to the young American right away. From the first time he saw her he has wanted to touch her, to possess her. She is unlike any other woman in his life. She makes him laugh and surprises him constantly. She has breathed lightness into him he thought he lost forever. But what will she say when she learns the truth about his life?

Author Fast Five

1. Can you describe your write style in one sentence?

I love books that give you a fun escape from real life. Mostly, romantic stories with moderate drama, hot sex, strong women, and yummy men.

2. What are your top 5 books

Wow! That is a hard one for me! I have to be honest and my all-time favorite is Harry Potter. I am a complete Harry Potter geek and I have read them all several times. If You Stay by Courtney Cole and Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec the two most recent books I have read that I am in love with. One of my long time favorites is the Sookie Stackhouse Vampire series by Charlaine Harris.
I also really like the With Me series by Kristen Proby. I can’t wait for Rock With Me

3. If you were not writing what would you be doing?

I have 2 year old triplets that take up most of the hours in the day. I also love throwing parties and I have always thought being a part planner would be a lot of fun.

4. If you had to give up all but one of the following what would you keep. Facebook, Twitter, your phone or your laptop?

My phone hands down! I don’t know how I lived before texting!

5. Lastly, if you had to recommend one author other than yourself who
would it be and why?

Kristen Proby. She is just fantastic. I love her books! Any writer that is taking on a seven book series with a different main character and POV in each one is a rock star in my opinion. Not to mention she is humble, real, and makes the best potato soup I have ever had.
