I have been in love with love ever since I was a little girl, sneaking and reading my grandmother’s western love novels. I never knew I would eventually write my own stories of romance. My stories are filled with emotion, passion, and, yes, can be a little on the naughty side. I strive to create characters in which readers can relate and feel as if they are on the journey of love, too. When I am not obsessed with my latest novel, I love to travel, dance, and drink hot cocoa while reading magazines in a bookstore. I am thankful for my family and friends, who have always supported my dreams and aspirations. A native of the South, I'm currently enjoying life in Houston, Texas.
I can’t believe the day is here…we have been behind the scenes working toward this release for more than a year (crazy, a whole year!) while I finished other projects and worked with another group of amazing writers. THAT DAY IS FINALLY HERE!
I thank the ladies of the Savage Bloodline Boxset for allowing me an opportunity to participate in this BWWM and mafia romance.
Gianni was my first foray into mafia romance and I enjoyed challenging myself. I plan to do more romance with a crime element in the near future because of this experience. Although Gianni is a slight departure for me, it is still a Tiye Love journey of love… So indulge in these 20 stories of crime, passion, and love…
In honor of the 2-22-22 date, thought I would drop a teaser AND the Spotify playlist for Unforgettable Love, Unforgettable Series, Book 4 (releases 2-26-22)!!
I walked to the door, wondering if I should share my thoughts with Nick. Not that I didn’t trust him, we just hadn’t been in that friendship mode in years. Then again, we are rebuilding and starting anew. “Yeah. It’s Bria. No matter how hard I try….” I opened the door, and the object of my inescapable thoughts grinned devilishly with her hands behind her back. “Bria?”
She bit her lower lip as her gaze seared my bare chest. “I come in peace.”
Nick asked, “Is that Sabria?”
“Mmm. Hmmm.” I stared at Sabria, who looked positively amazing in her red cold shoulder sweater dress and black boots. She’d twisted her black faux locs so that her hair flowed over one bare shoulder. She’d even donned makeup that illuminated her natural beauty. Eyeliner emphasized her brown eyes that now sparkled like a new penny.
“Interesting. Well, let me let you go.”
My eyes never left a smiling Sabria. “Yeah…call you later so we can finish our conversation.”
“Maybe meet up for drinks.”
“Cool,” I responded while Sabria switched from foot to foot, impatiently patient.
“And tonight, do everything I would do.” I could hear the amusement in his voice.
I held my finger to Sabria and stepped back inside, closed my door, and whispered on the phone, “Do not say a word to Tresa about Bria stopping over here. I mean it, Nicholas.”
“Using my whole name, you’re serious.” He laughed. “TJ, I still got you. Peace.”
I opened the door and leaned my back against the door jamb. “Damn, Bria…you rocking that dress. Must have a hot date.”
She trailed her finger from my belly button to my waistband, dangerously close to my ever-ready d$#k. “You’re the one out here, showing the world you work out on the regular.”
“I thought you were going to let me know when you got back in town. You can’t just pop over. What if I had Iesha here? You know how insanely jealous you get.” I complained though I didn’t stop her wandering hand that cooled my warm skin.
“Good, that means she isn’t here.” She tapped my chest and walked past me inside my house…
The beautiful and free-spirited Raini Blue is a struggling artist with aspirations to have her own gallery. Believing she is content, she’s comfortable with her job at a local bookstore and selling her wares in the New Orleans French Market. But her world is about to shift when Tre LaSalle, the man with whom she shared her first kiss as a teenager, comes back into her life.
Between his new role as mayor of a world-renowned city and being a single father to his eight-year-old daughter, Tre has little time for relationships. Until Raini Blue. Intrigued by her beauty and her resistance to his charms, he is determined to win her over.
Tre ignites her passions and awakens desires long dormant, but Raini wonders if he can truly accept her bohemian lifestyle, whether or not her family’s checkered past will hurt his political aspirations, and ultimately, can she trust him with her heart?
Excited to win a romantic helicopter ride for two during the most wonderful time of the year, Pepper Lockridge knows just the person to invite. The sexy and oh so charismatic, Tyler Cage. He’s been her crush since college and now that they work for the same logo company, she’s determined to make him see her as more than a friend. With the help of a make-over, she has seven days to get Tyler to really notice her and accept her invitation. And maybe her Christmas wish will come true, and Tyler will finally kiss her as they fly over the Hudson River. Except the only one who seems to be paying attention to the new and improved Pepper is their boss. Tyler’s hot, yet forever brooding older brother, Sawyer Cage.
The charming and confirmed bachelor Nicholas Toussaint doesn’t believe in forever. All he’s ever known of relationships is pain, and he’d rather avoid another scar to his already damaged heart. Until one passionate night with Tresa, the one woman he’d always resisted because she’s the sister of his old friend now political foe.
The newly hired Assistant District Attorney, Tresa LaSalle has never been afraid to color outside the lines. She is completely satisfied with sexual trysts and the occasional companion. Until one steamy night with Nicholas Toussaint, in which he confesses his love and subsequently takes it back.
Upset and confused, Tresa is determined to forget about Nicholas. But after a chance encounter rekindles the undeniable burning flame between them, the two finally decide to take a chance on love right before a scandal emerges. As old hurts and mistrust grow again between the two most powerful families in New Orleans, Nicholas and Tresa are forced to choose sides causing them to question if loyalty to their families is more important than their love.
Summer Locke has made sacrifices for the sake of her family for most of her life. First as the oldest of four daughters, and then as a busy doctor and single mother to her burgeoning teen, Bella. Now at thirty-five with three younger sisters all coupled up, she is fighting loneliness and resentment. Afraid to truly love because of a secret she is not yet ready to reveal, she has given up on happily ever after and would settle with happily for now. Until she meets cowboy Maverick Shaw. He is the man she never knew she’d dreamed of with his rugged good looks, easy smile, natural swagger, and undeniable sex appeal. As their love grows, and the pressure to divulge the truth heightens, Summer’s world begins to spin out of control. And she wonders if she can withstand the consequences of her past actions or will she lose it all?
By now some of you have seen my cover reveal video of The Summer Storm and I just wanted to share with you a little about my current WIP. I have been hard at work and have missed my own self-imposed timelines trying to get this story right for those who love the Locke sisters and the A Love for all Seasons series. Spring Blossoms ended in a bang and I wanted to do Summer’s story justice…so hold on a little bit longer and hoping when the story is all said and done it was worth the wait. All of the Locke sisters’ stories have led up to Summer’s and it promises to be an emotional journey of self-identity, forgiveness, family, sisterhood, loyalty, friendship, coping with loss, long-lasting effects of divorce, and of course, love. This is a blurb also in progress…I wanted to give readers a hint to what’s to come…
