Menage Erotic Suspense
Date Published: August 3, 2016 
Publisher: Evernight Publishing

Tessa Lawson has a secret… actually, she has a few. Not only did she used to be known as adult film star Temper Jazz, but she is also on the run after witnessing a murder and stealing $250K from a drug lord. She moved to Magic to hide, but will she be able to hide her heart?
Milo Livingston has his own demons. His guilt over a horrible accident that injured a friend has left him thinking he doesn’t deserve happiness. He surely doesn’t think that Tessa could ever love him.
When Milo’s friend, DEA Agent Archer Collins comes to town searching for Tessa, the trio’s world is thrown into upheaval. Archer is intent on bringing down the drug cartel responsible for his sister’s death. He never expected to fall in love with the key witness he’s been searching for.
After an attempt is made on Tessa’s life, Milo and Archer join forces to protect the woman they care about. Will both men be able to overcome their own demons and trust Tessa with their hearts? And will their love be enough to protect her from the dangerous people who want her dead?


What is the hardest part of writing your books?

As my “day job,” I’m a line editor at a publishing company. So the hardest thing for me is to disconnect that part of my brain when I’m writing. When I write with Editor Me looking over my shoulder, I am not productive. I get caught up in things like “I just started three sentences with the same word. I need to go back and change it.” When I do that, I take myself out of the story, which makes it terribly difficult to jump back in and refocus.

What songs are most played on your Ipod?

Oh, I have an entire “romance” playlist on Spotify that I play on a loop when I’m writing particularly lovey-dovey scenes. I won’t list all 30 songs on it, but I’ll give you the first five:
A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
Skinny Love – Birdy
Unsteady – X Ambassadors
Here With Me – Dido
Turning Tables – Adele

When I’m not writing, my music switches to something I can rock out to. :-)

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

I do! My best critic and beta reader is my best friend Stacey. She is awesome at offering advice and telling me what works and what doesn’t. She is not a writer, so hearing her opinions from a reader’s point of view is incredibly helpful.

What book are you reading now?

I always have at least two books going, usually a romantic suspense and a cozy mystery because those are my favorite genres. I’m currently reading Winters Heat (Titan #1) by Cristin Harber, and Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons (Rose Gardner Mystery #2) by Denise Grover Swank.

How did you start your writing career?

I’ve been writing for years, but I never had the courage to submit anything. A good friend of mine (author Nicole Michaels) sat me down and really kicked me in the butt. She had read some of my stuff, and she was the one who encouraged me to quit pussyfooting around and submit my work. I submitted my first book last summer, which was picked up by Evernight Publishing, and now I’m working on my eighth book! Don’t ever be afraid to follow your dream!!

Tell us about your next release.

My next release is entitled Explosive Desire. It is the fourth book in my Love With A Price series, and it will be out in November. Here is the exclusive description. This is the first time I’ve shared it!

A stalker has set his sights on Harper and will stop at nothing to make her his…

Finding love is the last thing on Luke Price’s mind as he leads his construction crew to complete the new wing of Oakville Hospital. But he can’t deny his feelings when Dr. Harper Love walks into his life. Lacking the sociability of his younger siblings, Luke doesn’t think a woman like Harper would ever want an introvert like him. But he puts his skepticism on hold when he discovers that Harper has become the victim of a stalker. Above all else, Luke vows to protect the woman he cares about.

When Dr. Harper Love moves to Oakville, she doesn’t expect to find a network of new friends, a man who captures her heart, and certainly not a stalker who watches her every move. When she begins receiving menacing notes at the hospital where she works, it soon becomes clear that the threats are no prank. Harper finds herself turning to Luke Price, and his protective instincts go on high alert. Will his heart be able to stand losing Harper? Or can he figure out who the stalker is and keep the woman he loves safe?

I'm a Midwestern girl and a lover of coffee, live music, and horror movies, not necessarily in that order.
I've been writing all my life, and I honestly can't remember a time when I wanted to do anything but write. After many years spent suffering the trials of corporate America and writing about everything from financial risk management to software user manuals to website copy about radiators (sadly, I'm not kidding), I decided take the plunge and start writing books.
I love a good love story with super hot alpha males, strong heroines, a little humor, and a lot of suspense. Sprinkle in some sexual fantasies and a few BDSM aspects, and Boom! These are only a few of the themes you'll find in my books.

When I'm not writing, I'm probably at Starbucks, or fighting evil with the help of my husband, two children, and our houseful of animals.
