  1. What or who inspired you to start writing? I always wanted to write from a very young age and then when I hit high school and college I started writing down sexy little romances that popped into my head. Before I knew it those sexy little books were becoming full-length novels!
  1. How did you come up with ideas for your books?

What expertise did you bring to your writing? Well, I write erotic romance… so your question is…? Of course any erotic romance writer is going to bring their expertise in that department but a romance is so much more than that. Yes, I have an degree in English and love writing but I was also a wedding planner which provided a lot of up close and personal experience with couples and how romance “works.” Also, I love love love to travel so most of the places I have been or lived factor in my books.

  1. What would you want your readers to know about you that might not be in your bio? Oh boy, well there is lots of course. I love Champagne, Lillet, and chocolate, am a tea connoisseur! I love being wined and dined as well as entertaining my friends and working on new recipes. I adore traveling, anywhere anytime, Speak Italian, French, Spanish and a spat of Russian. My one weakness is complete luxury and movies that make me cry and things that are sparkly…oh wait, that’s more than one weakness isn’t it?
  2. As far as your writing goes, what are your future plans? More books! I love to write as fast as my fingers can type and my head is filled with stories just clamoring to get to the page.
  3. If you could be one of the characters from any of your books, who would it be and why? I think Lauren from Sail Away With Me would be someone I would love to be. Saucy, sexy, and smart!
  4. What is the best and worst advice you ever received? (regarding writing or publishing) Best advice, write and keep writing. Worst advice, hum….”You can’t write sex scenes that hot.” So glad I didn’t listen and just kept on burning up those pages.
  1. Do you outline your books or just start writing? I do jot down an outline although as the story develops the outline becomes a mere skeleton…13. Have you started your next project? If so, can you share a little bit about your book? I’m almost done “Bottoms Up” a sexy bar themed book with a bartender who will make you want to hurry into your nearest bar and order up a Screaming Orgasm. J
  2. Who is your favorite actor and actress? Penelope Cruz is one of favorites.
  1. What is your favorite reality show? I adore HGTV. Love decorating.



He’s an art thief on the run…with her heart

Look closer, into Hotel Totally Five Star Venice, where art curator Monique Le Bres has just walked through the doors of the newly opened swanky luxury hotel to assist with their art collection.

Alessandro Bonnard, the world-renowned art connoisseur and collector has been sent incognito to supervise Monique and oversee her acquisitions for the hotel.

Concealing his true identity, Alessandro is intrigued by the art-loving vixen with an appetite for kinky sex. He pursues Monique, charming her at every turn — taking her to places she’s never been — both in and out of bedroom.

Monique falls hard for the man who has utterly captured her body and soul. Only to find out he isn’t who she thought he was after all…he’s an art thief on the run…with her heart.



Waiting a good half hour, Monique was quite sure the coast was clear after her supervisor had departed. Weary from her travels she couldn’t wait to get back to her nice room and fall fast asleep in the sumptuous looking bed.

Stepping out of her office, Monique headed for the elevator at the end of the hall, noticing each door she passed had a nametag with identifiers. Sales the Direttore Vendite. Food and Beverage. Diretorre del Marketing. Director of Marketing and so on.

The subdued hush of voices from an adjoining hallway made Monique stop in her tracks. Pausing, she listened. The soft giggles intrigued her. Tiptoeing towards the sound, she peered around the corner. Near the end of the hall, she glimpsed Donovan’s silhouette as he leaned against a woman, kissing her. His hands holding hers above her head as she hooked one long leg around his waist, pulling him closer to her as they embraced passionately.

Monique’s key slipped from her hand and tinkled noisily on the wood floor. Mouth agape, her cheeks flamed as Donovan looked up and nodded to her from down the long hallway. Then the woman looked at her too. Monique immediately recognized the young blonde with the pixie cut hair and the cute little body from the lobby. The one she’d seen Donovan pat on the ass when Monique had first arrived.

The young woman merely smiled at Monique, her legs still wrapped around her supervisor’s hips, and then returned to kissing Donovan. Running her hands along his wide shoulders before he spun her around and planted his hands on her ass, pulling her too him. Hard. Monique looked away, but then back again. Strangely aroused at the unbridled passion, she was aware her nipples peaked under her silk blouse as she watched his hands slide over her curves and slide up and then up and under her skirt.

He tugged the woman’s panties down.

She kicked them off with flair. Crumpled, the lace thong lay in the hall while the lovers went at it. Grabbing, tasting, and kissing. Monique was aware her own panties were moist, shocked by her own enjoyment at watching them. Hiking the woman’s skirt up further, Donovan pursued her, baring her sculpted thighs and making Monique’s body quiver as she watched when Donovan slid his fingers between the woman’s legs. A soft groan escaped his lover’s mouth as they kissed and she tugged impatiently at his belt.

Monique gulped an audible gulp. Donovan cocked at eye in her direction. Monique quickly retreated, embarrassed to have been caught standing there enjoying spying on the lovers.
