Sinful Rewards – Our Changing Relationship With Our Moms

When I was a kid, I viewed my mom as a superhuman being who could fix anything and never require fixing herself. She’d absorb all of my temper tantrums and never strike back. She knew everything, could do anything, could shield me from the darkness in the world. Then, when I was a teenager, I said something horrible to her and she cried. This totally changed our relationship. I realized I had the ability to hurt my mom. In that moment, I viewed her as…well… human, not supermom but a regular person with her own doubts and fears and concerns. In Sinful Rewards 6, Bee realizes that she can hurt her mom and yes, this changes their relationship also. *** “What’s wrong, honeybee?” she answers, expecting the worse.

A Big Wow for The Wedding Vow

I’m always tickled when my books are reviewed, but this lovely write-up for The Wedding Vow on the Fresh Fiction web site really made my day! “The Wedding Vow is a rollercoaster of emotions: raw and primal, sweet and sexy, crafted into an extremely moving story that keeps you guessing at how it will end until the very end, which is quite unusual for a romance. The Wedding Vow is, in my opinion, a work of genius.”
