About this author

I write historical, contemporary and paranormal romances. My stories are steamy and sensual, my characters are passionate and sassy and the settings, atmospheric and exotic.

Today I'm hosting Jacey Holbrand and her debut romance novella, The Encounter. If you like stories about UFO investigations, then take a peek. There's also a $25 Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card giveaway.
