Keep writing. When you finish one book, start the next one.
No matter what path you choose to publishing, having multiple books release in a short amount of time builds great momentum. When I sold my first book, I had three written and in my debut year I had five releases.

Keep writing!(less)

So sorry for the delay in answering! I had my settings wrong and never received a notice on this. Yes, it was brutally hard. I was exhausted after writing those scenes and wound up needing to take a few days off after it. When I first started the book, I had anticipated Tiny being a hero in a later book. It made me sad, but Vic needed something that would completely change the way he approached life and Tiny did it. :) (less)

A Just Deception (Romance)
2 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: The protector: Peter Jessup, former Navy SEAL, currently employed by Taylor Security. He likes being the hero—in charge and in control. His client: Lawyer Isabelle DeRosa. The sexy brunette is the personification of Peter's fantasies. She's willing to get physical but nothing more serious. The assignment: When Isabelle becomes the prime suspect in the murder of her cousin, Peter is there to protect her and help her find the real killer. Their investigation leads to a big-name charity that seems to draw cultlike followers. Isabelle manages to infiltrate the group and become close to their leader, leaving Peter both jealous and worried for her. As their search leads to danger, Peter realizes he's falling in love with Isabelle. He wants all of her, but she's too used to guarding herself to let him in…
Man Law (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Security Consultant Vic Andrews lives by his Man Laws: Never mess with your best friend's sister Never get caught Never get attached But he can't deny his irresistible attraction to Gina Delgado, a young widow with three kids and plenty of strings attached. Even so, having a physical relationship doesn't mean they're "in a relationship." Gina lost her husband to tragedy; she is not getting emotionally involved with another man in a dangerous profession. Sleeping with Vic is just stress relief. Until one of Vic's assignments goes wrong and the target selects Gina and her kids for revenge. There's nothing Vic won't do to protect Gina and the children—the family he realizes, too late, he wants. He'll accomplish his mission but will he have lost his only chance at true love?

“After slipping the condom on, he rolled on top of her, shoved her hair out of her face and held it while he got lost in those sea green eyes that, in a darkened room, shined bright.
He wanted her. And it wasn’t just the sex. He wanted the whole nutty package.”

“(Isabelle) “You can do whatever you’d like at my house.”
He raised his eyebrows and grinned.
“Within reason,” she added. “If I find you in my bed with a woman, you’re a dead man.”
He grinned bigger.
Her stomach knotted. “Did I say that?”
He continued to grin.
She had said it. Must be the fatigue. Three hours of sleep didn’t cut it.
He stepped closer. Oh, boy.
“Izzy, the only woman I want in that bed is you.”
