Farrah & the Court-Appointed Boss
When a carefree party girl comes up against a determined virgin, sparks fly!
Farrah’s family (including cousin Ellyn) has gotten her out of countless scrapes. But when a judge refuses to overlook the fact that Farrah shot illegal fireworks into a school (oops), Farrah is forced to return to the nightmare she thought she was ten years past: Back to high school. It’s too much to bear without a martini. Wait—no drinking too?!
Michael is a guidance counselor and a determined advocate for virginity. The last thing he needs is red-headed chaos assigned to help him keep a “dirty dozen” of at-risk teens in school. But it turns out the kids love Farrah. And to Michael’s horror, he does too. Now what’s he going to do?
A wild fashion show plan, turf wars between the teens, a party girl forced to sober up and a strong-willed virgin forced to loosen up; what could possibly go wrong?

Ellyn & the Would-Be Gigolo
The Ampersand Series, Book 3
A funny, sexy romantic adventure that proves the adage: A good scoundrel is hard to find. And even harder to keep!
Ellyn is in a “cousin contest.” Her aunt will give away five million to her favorite niece, and she’ll choose the winner on a luxurious cruise to paradise. Ellyn thinks she’ll do whatever it takes to win—including bringing a scoundrel on board to romance Aunt Cor.
Artie’s life as a con man has had its ups and downs—but now he’s hit rock bottom. Then Ellyn meets the former “Phoebus Apollon” (from DASH & THE MOONGLOW MYSTIC) and offers him a lifeline. Now Artie has to make a choice. He could marry Aunt Cor for her fortune and become “Uncle Artie.” Or forget the money and win the treasure he never knew he wanted—Ellyn’s heart.
A cruise ship rhumba contest, wealthy-lady shopping expeditions in exotic ports of call, cousins and competitors and one glum-faced maid: With all that going on, how do you stack the deck (nautical humor, get it?) to get what you want?
Dash & the Moonglow Mystic
The Ampersand Series, Book 2
For fans of Jennifer Crusie, Lucy Score, and Janet Evanovich, a classic fish-on-a-horse out of water tale of romance, laughter, and adventure.
Ace FBI agent Dash Ashwood is sent to track down counterfeiters at a luxury dude ranch. Expecting only crime, he finds he must also deal with a dizzying array of con artists boldly masquerading as psychics, one seriously stubborn horse, and the most fascinating woman he’s ever thought about arresting.
Evadne Nym reluctantly becomes the Moonglow Mystic not to commune with the celestial spheres but just to pay her bills. But Evie has hidden skills, and a powerful interest in Dash. Is she really a psychic? Will she help him solve the case, or will he put her behind bars? Will they risk everything to fall in love?
Dash & the Moonglow Mystic is the follow-up to Cyn & the Peanut Butter Cup. Treat yourself to a twisty, comedic romantic adventure. Because life is too short to be serious!
Cyn & the Peanut Butter Cup
The Ampersand Series, Book 1
Love, laughter, and short-term memory loss. When a sweet old lady’s mysterious past draws her young caretaker into a wild ride, they drag a hot FBI agent along with them. Cyn didn’t know caring for Maddy would require car chases, and Rhys never thought an old lady could steal his gun.
Cynthia loves being Maddy’s caregiver. Watching over a slightly senile senior is a piece of cake after Cyn’s brutal divorce. It’s not wrong to hide away from life for a few weeks, er, months. Right?!
Rhys (“like the peanut butter cup but not spelled the same”) is pretty sure he’s going to get fired from his job at the FBI. When Maddy steals his gun at the grocery store and shoots at a random stranger, Rhys figures that’s it for his career. Everything’s gone wrong…
…except for meeting Cyn. How will Rhys and Cyn find love while keeping Maddy safe from the (possibly imaginary) hordes who are (maybe) out to get her?
A laugh-out-loud, sexy romantic comedy that includes a heroine with self-confidence problems, an absolutely delicious screw-up of a hero, and the strong-willed, slightly addled old lady who leads them both astray.
