Cooper Bennett is my best friend.
That’s all he is and all he ever will be.
Nothing will change that.
Accidentally seeing him naked? Please. So not a big deal.
Having less-than-tame thoughts? I mean, have you seen this guy? Who could blame me?
Kissing him? It was a one-time mistake, and it will not be repeated.
Falling into bed with him? Uh-oh…
It’s fine. We’re fine.
We’re Caroline and Cooper. Best friends until the end. Nothing has ever come our way that we couldn’t survive together.
Surely, we can handle this too…

Princess Corla was supposed to be my soulmate.
But we were star crossed.
Two ships passing in the dark. Meant to be together, but never able to be together.
At least that’s what I thought.
But it turns out—my life is a lie, evil forces are out to get us, Harem Station is spinning chaos, and the soulmate bond won’t protect us.
Sounds pretty bad, right?
But here’s the best part.
I can change it.
I can change all of it.
If I can just find a way to get myself uncrossed.
Uncrossed is the last book in the Harem Station Series and features a man chasing his star-crossed soulmate through time, a bazillion enemies at the gate, an entire station in chaos, and an explosive ending that proves, once and for all, that love WINS in the end.

The winter of 1997 is a tragedy waiting to happen. Small-town life isn’t easy for seventeen-year-old, bisexual and closeted Paulina, especially when her best friend Mia becomes pregnant. A devout Catholic, Mia doesn’t want to tell her parents, see a doctor, or even tell the baby’s father, Paulina’s other best friend, Tesla. Meanwhile, Paulina’s secret relationship with volleyball star, Ani, is about to go public in the worst way. It all comes to a head one fateful night, and everything changes forever.
Fast forward to the winter of 2014, where Perdita, bi and proud in Chicago, is weeks away from turning seventeen. Her life is perfect–well, almost. She loves her two moms, but why do they refuse to tell her anything about her adoption? When Perdita meets Fenton, her handsome improv coach who’s taking a gap year before college, she discovers both a kindred soul and a willing accomplice in her search for the truth. Will Perdita find what she’s looking for? And if not, can time really heal all wounds?
TWO WINTERS is a contemporary queer YA retelling of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, about birth, death, Catholic school, improv comedy and the healing nature of time.

He wasn’t supposed to Want her. She wasn’t supposed to Love him. When Heart and Loyalty Collide. Rules don’t apply.
Brotherhood. Family. Club.
They live and die by their own rules.
These are the men of the Royal Bastards and they’ll ride through Hell for each other.
Hollywood Haven never apologizes for who he is or where he came from… The Royal Bastards don’t know everything there is to know about him, and that’s how he likes it. He’s a man who’s dedicated to his brothers and will protect those he loves, especially Talena. She’s the one woman who’s held his heart since the day she came into his life, and he’ll destroy anyone who dares harm one hair on her gorgeous head.
Talena Haven has always had everything she’s wanted except… The life of Hollywood Royalty sounds great, but it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be when the one thing you want, you can’t have. As dreams shatter, becoming nightmares, she turns to the only man who has always protected her.
A façade that falls apart… Hollywood and Talena are forced together in order to keep her safe. Their explosive attraction becomes even more so as her life teeters on the edge. But it’s taboo, or is it? They’ve always been told they look alike, but blonde-haired beauties are a dime a dozen in California. Talena isn’t like other women, she’s his. As secrets come to light, and a devastating truth is revealed, their foundations are rocked, threatening everything they know.
He’ll do anything to protect the men he’s given his oath…as well as the woman who can’t defend herself, testing familial bonds. He’s always protected his blood, the same as he rides hard for his club and values loyalty above all else—until finding out his family lied to him. The truth will come out and when the dust settles, he won’t be the only one left reeling.
Loyalty is more than blood that runs in your veins, a truth that becomes apparent in the most devastating way.
Talena went from pampered princess, to being hunted. Hollywood is just the man who’ll do everything he can to keep her safe, even if digging into the past will uncover secrets some want to keep buried forever.
The past can never be truly forgotten, but Hollywood has never been a man who shies away from a fight…
