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.

Coming in 2021:
Dash & the Moonglow Mystic
The follow-up to Cyn & the Peanut Butter Cup finds competent FBI agent Dash Ashwood far outside his comfort zone, investigating a counterfeiting operation (because that's always a laugh riot) on a luxurious Wyoming dude ranch overrun with con men (and women) pretending to be prophets. A classic fish-on-a-horse out of water tale.
Con man Artie (also known as Phoebus Apollon, from Dash & the Moonglow Mystic) gets more than he bargained for when he agrees to help Ellyn. The profits will be worth the effort if she wins the "niece popularity contest." So Artie agrees to romance Ellyn's very wealthy, very feisty aunt on a cruise through tropical waters. Shall we rumba, darling?
Work in Progress - pardon our dust!
I’m working now on the fourth in the Ampersand Series, following Ellyn & the Would-Be Gigolo. Like the three before it, Farrah & the Court-Appointed Boss is a rom-com. The story of party girl Farrah and proud virgin Mike Alberghetti will be published late in 2021, God willing and the crick don't rise.
