A sinful night with your boss’s boss isn’t the recommended path for career advancement. In my defense, I didn’t know who he was when he suggested we take things to a more private setting…
I don’t usually lose my head when I meet a guy, but in the land of the size zero supermodel, as a full-figured woman, I rarely catch the attention of a sexy as sin man that makes my toes curl with lust at first sight.
A tall, dark, and very handsome man who wears a bespoke suit like it’s nobody’s business and who loves women with plenty of curves?!
I blame his disarming charm and potent masculinity for making me throw caution to the wind. That’s the only explanation as to why I allowed this stranger to do unspeakable things to me after meeting him for a New York minute.
Imagine my shock when he wanted to see me again.
Finally, finally I get to break my one-time coffee date curse.
Standing up Mr. Suit for our second encounter is the biggest Shakespearean tragedy of my life. I didn’t mean to be a no-show. It was totally out of my control.
Forcing myself to move forward, despite the crushing setback, I show up at my new job. And… there he is—the smooth-talker with a sexy British accent who corrupted me.
I’m going to be working under him––I mean, with him?!
Turns out, my boss’s boss doesn’t appreciate being stood up without the curtesy of a call or a text. And boy, the man holds a grudge.
Note to self: Hell has no fury like a boss’s boss scorned…

I’m a USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR and an Amazon Bestseller author!
Here’s the reason I step into my dream every single morning when I wake up:
“Some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up, heart and soul.” — Joanne Harris (Author of the award-winning novel, Chocolat)
I muse about dangerously loving and fierce alphas and the sassy women who bring them down to their knees.
I write sultry, sensual and steamy romance novels, laced with kinks. I’ll admit my novels are scorching hot, but if you can’t push the boundaries between the pages of a book, it’s just not fun.
I’m constantly walking around with new stories/dialogues floating in my head. I consider myself lucky I get to spend my days dreaming up the most delicious alphas in romance. I love every minute of it!
On a personal note…
I have a serious love affair with Italian gelato, ice cream, pound cake, white chocolate and Macadamia nut cookies, peanut butter cookies, and Martinis. I could live off French or Italian charcuterie boards. California Chardonnay? Thank you, God!
Like most women, I have way more shoes than I need, but it’s so hard to resist getting new ones. If you’ve read my books, you know I have an obsession with high heels, hence the photo at the top. At 5’9, I hardly need more height, and God knows I can’t walk like a lady with anything higher than 2 1/2 inches, but I drool all over them, and admire women who can rock heels. That’s why I live vicariously through my main female characters who wear 4 and even 5-inch heels with elegance and poise.
I hold two University degrees in two different languages from two of the two prestigious international business schools. Just like Sofia and Ciara, the main female characters of my first two romance books, I speak several languages.
Since publishing my first book, I’ve been blessed with an insanely awesome group of faithful readers. I love those ladies so much. Their passion for my books makes the very, very long hours rewarding.
