Recent Projects: The Punishment Doctrine

41O45hxnsdLBook 3.5 in The Portland Rebels series.

Facing his demons could unlock heaven…or damn his lovers to hell.

After a week of pure deviance in Maine, Rafe, Krissy, and Mikey committed to giving this crazy triad thing a shot. Rafe has fallen harder than he ever believed possible, yet he can’t fully be with his lovers. Not with the hundreds of miles separating them, or the doubts clamoring ever louder in his mind.

He’s crisscrossing the country in a hot-ticket musical, and that success means months on the road. Sexy video chats keep the three connected, but nothing can keep Rafe’s burning loneliness at bay. It doesn’t help that his current tour stop is Atlanta, scene of the privileged upbringing—and so-called therapy—that almost killed him.

Rafe is determined to face his demons, but one visit home brings the damaging spiritual beliefs hammered into him from childhood spiraling back out of his past. And he is beginning to fear his love for Krissy and Mikey could condemn them all to everlasting punishment.

Recent Projects: Rogue in Love by Inger Iversen

RogueInLove-Inger-Iversen-coverHer body is his. But he’s got the fight of his life to claim her heart.

Inger Iversen presents a standalone contemporary BWWM romance in her best-selling Love Against the Odds world.

Lex knows exactly where the good people of Blackwater think he belongs. In prison, right alongside his no-good, murdering father. It’s one reason he’s spent the last two years living rough in the woods outside of town. The other? Thea—granddaughter of the man who rescued him from an irreparably broken home.

The exact moment Lex noticed Thea had grown into a woman, he was packed off to the military. Lex gets it. He knows better than anyone he tends to destroy everything he touches.

Now, ten years later, a mysterious summons brings Lex back to civilization, though the thought of watching Thea marry someone else ignites a savage instinct he dares not unleash.

At first, Thea doesn’t recognize the grizzled, mountain of muscle who breaks into her grandfather’s house in the dead of night. Until his rusty, familiar voice emerges from all that unkempt hair. Lex, the boy who broke her heart when he walked out of her life.

For a while, she had everything she thought she wanted: a successful medical career, a doctor fiancé, a comfortable future. With a single, hopeless diagnosis, she dropped everything—including the fiancé—to come home. And into the arms of the boy who has matured into a man who makes her body tremble with desire, even as her brain warns her to guard her heart.

Forever is waiting just on the other side of the emotional walls towering between them. Walls that love could leap…if it’s strong enough to shed the weight of their pasts.

Recent Projects: Incarcerated by Inger Iversen

Print“We all wear two masks. One to hide from the world. The other to hide from ourselves.”

Katie Andreasson’s home office, where she writes best-selling novels, is her refuge from criticism that her private education, her success–even the way she speaks–betrays her own race. With her mother’s death, grief and increasing isolation inspire her to create Capshaw Penitentiary’s pen pal program. Even secretly participate, though her adopted father–the prison warden–would never approve.

Growing up in hardscrabble, rural Kentucky, Logan Whyte learned the hard way to stick with his own kind to stay out of trouble. Still, skirting the edges of the wrong crowd eventually landed him in prison–face to face with the kind of hard-core prejudice he never whole-heartedly embraced.

Now, with plans to get his life back on track once he’s out, he’s exchanging letters with “Kristen”. The rules dictate they can never meet, yet her neatly penned letters do more than ease him toward rejoining the human race. They make him imagine what it would be like to touch the woman behind them. Maybe even call her his.

Safely hidden behind anonymous letters, friendship takes root and grows into bittersweet yearning. But as they break down emotional walls, the truth is revealed, leaving them with the greatest challenge of all. Proving to themselves–and the outside world–that love is truly colorblind.
