About the Book2

Anyone can say they’re completely fulfilled with life. They can say all the right words and even behave as if not a darn thing is wrong even when their insides are hollowed out. And eventually they’ll search, dig, pry and perhaps bargain for a chance at satisfaction. If I can’t be satisfied, then I guess I’ll settle for what I can get.
Right?
Maybe?

~Jezebel Jones~

Jezebel Jones and Jason Marks have been the rock in each other’s lives for years. No one knows Jezebel as well as Jason, and vice versa. As Jezebel comes to terms with being alone, she decides to settle for her ever-faithful friend. Although she has never loved him romantically, Jezebel wants to make a try for a real relationship with her friend. This isn’t a natural thing, just something she is reasoning through. She can’t help but wonder if their friendship will be able to withstand the changes.

And just when Jezebel least expects to be swept away be anyone, she meets Aidan Broder. He stimulates her mind, body and soul. Even as Jezebel gets closer to him, she’s still afraid to dive in and finds herself in the middle of two men. In the end, Jezebel will have to make a choice between a man that has always loved her and a man that wants to love her.

Author’s Note:

I’ve never been one to believe in love at first sight. As I’ve grown older and become engaged in life, I find myself seeking this happily ever after that so many people talk about. In many ways, I was once Jezebel – unsure of what the future would hold and still hoping for something, anything that would allow me to believe. Though many of us don’t know what that something might be, we do know that we want more. Jezebel Jones is about letting go in order to truly love.

EXCERPT2
“Forgive me if I come across as a skeptic. I’ve never been wowed or swept off my feet.”
“Don’t you believe in love at first sight,” he was still in possession of her fingers and had been kissing them in between words. When he finally pulled away, she felt like something was suddenly missing.
“Love at first sight is a pleasing theory.” Jezebel thought through her answer. She was afraid to admit that she hoped in love at first sight, or love at all.
What if she decided to hope and got her heart broken?
What if the belief tricked her, and even came out of her mouth?
What if she started to lose control over such erratic emotions and lost the fight?
What if this love turned into heartbreak?
These questions plagued her mind. Her heart sped up. A single teardrop rolled down her cheek before she could stop it.
Aidan noticed. He wasted no time in wiping it away.
“Don’t be afraid to give it a try,” he encouraged.
“You have all the best slogans. In fact, you’re always quick to encourage me. But obviously you’d be the one to benefit.”
Their drinks and appetizers saved her. She knew that his response would be clever and thoughtful. And maybe even force her to admit that, for a man she’d just met, Jezebel was already smitten.

Loving Nate - Nice

EXCERPT2

“Hi, beautiful.” The voice that’s become a regular companion of mine, along with its owner, appears as a gift from the heavens. Cee must’ve offered up a special prayer because as I engage him, the sun’s fading rays illuminate and enhance his already astonishing profile.

I can’t even return his welcome. I think Hi, handsome. I form Hi, gorgeous. Nothing manifests. It’s then that I realize my game is weak. I’m warm inside and still shivering on the out. Wanting to be brave, I swing my hips, balancing atop the candied-colored heels. Wrong move. The heel gets caught in a crack of sand and grass. I’m propelled forward, into his waistline. Oh yeah, real smooth, Leah. He’s quick to capture me, setting my back against the car door. I reluctantly look up.

Nate’s eyes are glowing as much as the sunset in the distance. I have to shut mine, lowering my head in hopes of eluding him. Perhaps it’s the sky’s fault, but puddles of tears are forming in my eyes.

I don’t think this move has missed him. He lifts my face and places the back of his hand under my chin, setting a trap with his aura. I’m completely vulnerable to this incredibly stunning man. He places his palms on the sides of my face. He’s forcing me to look at him. Not only do I gaze into his full dark-brown eyes, I slip beyond, into a fortress of want and need. Just then, his lips touch mine. They tenderly caress my lip lining, even trailing nibble after nibble about my cheeks. He serenades the tip of my nose and up to my forehead. I close my lids as he gently plants his approval on each eye socket.

Nate finishes this worship of sorts, then returns to the initial landing site. This time, ummmm . . . This time, I grasp for more than just his lips, parting my mouth ever so slightly. I allow him entry into a part of me that I rarely offer to anyone.

New Release: Loving Nate

Loving Nate - Nice

NOW AVAILABLE!

When I set out to write Loving Nate, I wasn’t entirely sure of the ending. The only thing that I was sure of was the fact that I wanted to show the effects of being lost in love. I dug deep, pulling on every bit of desire and ever ounce of need that I’d ever felt. I even took the emotions further by contemplation the very core of selflessly loving another.

From the minute that Leah Daniels literally ran into Nathan Moore, she started on a downward spiral into love. I say downward spiral because she loses all strength and self worth. He is everything she could’ve ever wanted, even when he doesn’t shine. Moreover, Leah readily excuses Nate’s flaws, even when it comes to sacrificing her value.

Many years ago, someone told me that I shouldn’t fall in love. This person’s advice was that I should stand in love. I have since passed on this knowledge to Leah, because she needed to learn this lesson before she gave into the charms of Nathan Moore.

Loving Nate is now available for purchase through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Blurb

Loving Nate is Leah’s story of falling in love with Mr. Perfect. Leah falls fast and hard, losing all sense of reasoning. Love can do that to a gal, especially when the guy is as smooth as Nathan Moore. Loving Nate is about Leah’s journey of falling in love, when she should have been standing in love.

⭐️⭐️Author’s Note⭐️⭐️

I’ve decided to provide two very different endings to this novella. Have you ever made a decision and wondered whether or not it was the right choice? Or perhaps you made the right choice because you knew that the alternative would’ve been disastrous? This is my gift to readers. Regardless of Leah’s final choice, I wanted readers to be able to reflect on the possibilities.
