THE HARDEST FALL is Live!




Lee trades country ballads for show tunes in the next standalone book of her M/M series, Roadmap to Your Heart.

 After licking his wounds from a painful relationship, Tate Sullivan is ready to move back home. He picks up where he left off as drag queen extraordinaire Frieda Love in a West Village bar in New York City. He doesn’t expect to be drawn to the mysterious man with the dark eyes who shows up to every single performance—flirtatiously eyeing Tate one second and disappearing on him the next. Why mess around with a guy who is clearly giving him mixed signals?

Sebastian Clark is on a mission the first night he shows up at Ruby Redd’s. He doesn’t anticipate his plan being flipped on its head by the charismatic drag queen and even more so by the mesmerizing man beneath the makeup. But the more he learns about the vibrant and brash Tate Sullivan the more intrigued he becomes. So he pushes aside his guilt about why he sought out the bar in the first place in order to get to know the guy behind the stilettos.

They’re opposites on many levels, but as Tate spends time volunteering with Sebastian at the shelter, he begins to feel good about himself in ways he hadn’t before. For Sebastian, Tate represents a sense of fun and freedom that is completely fresh and invigorating. Before they know it, their easy companionship catches fire, and Sebastian is kissing a man for the first time, while Tate is opening his heart to new possibilities. But Sebastian is still keeping a secret, and Tate will have to decide if he can trust again, or if the betrayal he feels from Sebastian’s confession is too much to overcome.

TOUCH THE SKY is LIVE!




This is the New Adult Male/Male Romance I co-wrote with Nyrae Dawn (AKA Riley Hart). 

It's about living with mental illness. Getting second chances. And finding somebody you connect with on a soul deep level. 

It's emotional. Romantic. Sexy. And we hope you enjoy Lucas and Gabriel's story.

Retail Links:  
Amazon**Barnes&Noble**iBooks



Free Fall, Book 1
BLURB:


Lucas Barnett and Gabriel Stewart didn’t have it easy as kids. They were only trying to deal with bad situations at home when they became lifelines for each other. Their pipe dream was to someday meet in LA, where Lucas would design skyscrapers, and Gabriel would learn to fly. But then Gabriel disappeared without so much as a goodbye, and Lucas got himself in trouble with the law.

Five years later, both men are at a loss when they run into each other at a Hollywood bar. Lucas is still angry, but it’s not as if Gabriel could control how his mind and body had betrayed him. Being found on the ledge of that bridge had changed everything. 

The attraction is immediate, but it’s more than their inability to keep their hands off each other. Neither man expects the fierce connection pulling them together. Unfortunately, ignoring their problems doesn’t make them disappear. Gabriel’s internal struggles are serious…dangerous. And no matter how much Lucas wants it to be true, saving Gabriel won’t make up for not being able to save his mom. If they don’t find the strength to face their own demons before the darkness takes hold, they risk more than just losing each other forever.

I've got a little announcement...


In my New Year's post, I mentioned that I was writing a SECRET BOOK. I kept it quiet because I wasn’t sure if it would pan out. But now that I’m finished with revisions and totally in love with it, I’d like to share some info about it!

Back in November I started chatting with my friend, Nyrae Dawn, about all the things--books, writing, and collaborations--like authors do. She’s done a couple collabs before and I've always wanted to try one. Then a really cool New Adult male/male romance idea jumped out at us, we plotted out the basics, and just started writing.

The writing process pretty much consumed us. We laughed, we cried, we sighed all the way through. It’s been hard to keep it a secret because I love these boys—Lucas and Gabriel—so hard. 

It’s a pretty emotional book but also a swoony one. It deals with issues that are personal and important to both of us and we’re thrilled to be able to release it soon.

It’s called TOUCH THE SKY and the cover, blurb, and release date will be announced soon.

I think it’s a quiet book, a passionate and angsty one, but also sexy and romantic, and I hope you guys will like it too!

So there you go. More soon!

Three Sacred Words is LIVE!


This is book #2 in the Golden Arrow Series!






From the author of Two of Hearts comes a standalone adult romance about finding love where you least expect it.

Meadow Starr has worked in housekeeping at the Golden Arrow Casino since she was legal. Raising her son, Joaquin, without the support of her parents or the child’s father was not something she had ever envisioned. Neither was pushing a broom, scraping money together to pay the bills, or living in a trailer park on the reservation. Little does she expect her worst nightmare and her best dream to show up in town at the exact same time.

Federal Marshal Alex Flores returns to the reservation where he helped solve a murder investigation last year. He’s never forgotten the mesmerizing woman with the luminous smile and world-weary eyes. Too bad the fugitive on this new case has led him straight to her doorstep. Meadow will never give up Joaquin’s father, not if her wary gaze or her tight set jaw is any indication.

Meadow’s draw to Alex is immediate, but no way she’s going to trade attraction for history, longing for heritage. When the stakes become higher and Alex steps in to protect Meadow and her child from the very man she was willing to defend, he can’t help falling for them both. Who knew something so wrong could feel so right? But as the lines continue to blur, something’s got to give, and Alex isn’t certain he can walk away so easily from love.

Looking Back...and then AHEAD

My 2015 has been bittersweet to say the least.

I completed my Between Breaths New Adult Series with Penguin InterMix and said goodbye to the characters that I'd been writing for two years. I'm proud that I was able to incorporate mental health causes so important to me in two of the books: depression and domestic violence.

Cory and Jude ended the series in their own Male/Male romance, THERE YOU STAND, which, in my opinion, was perfect.







THEN I decided to spin off from that final storyline with my own self-pubbed Male/Male romance series called Roadmap to Your Heart. The first book, THE DARKEST FLAME, released in August, and the second book, THE DEEPEST BLUE, just released in December.




ALSO THIS YEAR, my first Adult Contemporary romance, TWO OF HEARTS, was released. It has some added suspense elements, and in a way, is a tribute to ALL OF YOU and THERE YOU STAND, which also has a little suspense. The book takes place on a Native American reservation, includes the Golden Arrow Casino, and some of the characters from my New Adult books WHISPER TO ME and THERE YOU STAND make an appearance, which is fun!





READERS: This year I straddled three different genres/categories--Adult, New Adult, and LGBTQ--and you hung in there with me, at least in spirit, even if you didn't like all of the changes or books. THANK YOU! I appreciate your support and kind words regardless.


Looking ahead to 2016:


**Book two of the Golden Arrow series, THREE SACRED WORDS, will release at the end of January. It's Meadow and Alex's story and will conclude the series.

**The third book in the Roadmap to Your Heart series will release in the spring. It's Tate's story.

But so many of you have begged for Billie's story from THE DEEPEST BLUE, that I've decided to plot that out as well, along with Mal (the Disciples of the Road president), from THERE YOU STAND and THE DARKEST FLAME. Maybe in novella form....we shall see.

**ALSO, I also have another m/f book I wrote and an additional m/m idea in the works that I will announce in the next couple of months, so STAY TUNED.  WHEW! 

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Some THE DEEPEST BLUE teasers: 










AN EXCERPT:

“Isn’t there some law about killing snakes in this state?” I heard our company say. Even out of the corner of my eye I could see that the guy was one of them pretty city boys. He was walking beside my sister, Cassie, who was busy filling him in on rattler containment on personal property. He must’ve been the guest she’d mentioned bringing. 

Did he need to be that handsome? Too bad he had to go and open his mouth.

“We can always walk away,” I said. I didn’t dare take my eye off the rattlesnake for a second time. “But that leaves you out here with no protection.”

I heard him gulp at the same time Grammy snickered. “Sounds like our Cassie might’ve brought home some tree hugger.” 

Grammy gripped the heavy rock in her fingers, ready to bash the rattler’s skull at a moment’s notice. 

“They say when a rattler strikes, your blood turns to fire. Like the venom is boiling away in your veins,” I said and I could hear whatshisname’s breathing change. “You’ve got about a ninety-minute window of time before the poison spreads.”

“And then what happens?” he asked, and I could just imagine his pulse throbbing in his neck. I heard his one foot scrape across the other as if rubbing some imaginary dirt from his spotless shoes. Either that or it was some nervous tick.

I shrugged. “Then you’re dead.”

“Callum. Knock it off,” Cassie said and I could hear the tightness in her voice. It pained me that we hadn’t been in touch for a long while and I certainly didn’t want to piss her off even further.

The snake retreated toward its hiding spot and disappeared without a second glance at the mouse. Damn.

Now I looked our new guest square in the face while my irritation bubbled over. Grammy had banked on making a fresh batch today. Lately I left the hunting to my brother, Braden, but he had a full plate, so I agreed to be a stand-in. “You Cassie’s date for the wedding?”

“That’s right. I, uh, attend the same college,” he said and I couldn’t help my gaze from snagging on the deepest set of blue eyes. Not quite as dark as that tangle of hair that swept in a high arc away from his forehead. Wearing a pair of fancy designer jeans that showed off his trim form, he was smaller than me, but most guys were. And now I felt shitty for checking out my sister’s guest. “The name’s Dean Abbott.”
