BOOK ONE OF A TRILOGY

BOOKS TWO AND THREE ARE AVAILABLE NOW!

Nick O'Hara is, for lack of a better word, a man-wh***. Look in the Urban Dictionary under that word, and his name will no doubt be mentioned. The only qualifications that he looks for in a bed-mate is that the person is hot and breathing. Mainly hot. He has no desire for an emotional connection with another person, and that's the way he lives his life. He has his fabulous wealth and his reputation as a premiere architect, and that's enough for him. 

Until Scotty James. 

Scotty is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York City. She's broken from traumatic experiences from her years in foster care and living on the streets. 

Scotty has a dark secret that has led her to protect herself to the point where, at the age of 23, she has never been on a date. She has never even been kissed. 

Yet Scotty has a vulnerability that is intoxicating to Nick, because, deep down, he knows that he is as broken as she. 

When Nick pursues Scotty, it seems that she is the only woman who doesn't want to be with him. At first she's a challenge, but Nick soon finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. With a woman who wants nothing to do with him. 

Can Scotty overcome her trust issues and fear to let Nick in? Or will she prove to be too broken to trust? 

This is a full-length, 95,000 word, New Adult novel with mature themes, an alpha male and a vulnerable and broken virgin. Also featuring a loyal gay bestie. :)

"Fan-freaking-tastic book. Ryan is more screwed up than Christian Grey, Gideon Cross, Tony Rawlings, etc....I loved this book, there was a TON I could relate to in this book, even right down to Iris being in the legal industry and Ryan and Iris were SCORCHING hot together." - RomFan Reviews

FIRST BOOK OF THE ILLUSIONS SERIES. BOOK TWO, DEEPER ILLUSIONS, IS AVAILABLE NOW. BOOK THREE, END OF ILLUSIONS, IS AVAILABLE NOW. PREQUEL, RYAN GALLAGHER, WILL BE AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 2015. 

Beautiful Illusions - a page-turning, sexy, and very contemporary adult romance novel. 

VERY contemporary.

Beautiful Illusions is a Cinderella Romance With a Twist - and what a twist it is!

Attorney Iris Snowe drinks too much, eats too much, and spends too much. Her sex life has been as spectacularly unsuccessful as her law practice, so she spends her evenings in her tiny apartment watching bad TV, talking to her cat, and rescuing pit bulls.

And her name might be Iris, but it should be Jade. As in jaded, which is how she feels about romance and men in general. 

So, when a gorgeous and sexy stranger appears in her law office on Monday morning, after a one-night stand the previous Saturday, she doesn't think that he is coming to see her because he is interested. She just figures that she left something behind in the room and he is enough of a gentleman to deliver it to her.

How wrong she is. 

As it turns out, Ryan Gallagher not only looks like a Ralph Lauren model come to life, but is also fabulously wealthy, as he is the son of a prominent billionaire.

In other words, light years out of Iris' league.  

And completely into her, in more ways than one.

And so begins the erotic Cinderella romance of her life, with a man who truly loves her. And oh, if it could just be that simple. But, of course, it's not -the fairy tale is fractured, as it is marred by obsession, jealousy, and dark secrets that Ryan has desperately sought to conceal and repress. It turns out that, behind those magnificent green eyes, lies the memories of a past that nobody should ever have to experience. Nobody. 

But when his past becomes his present, his secrets come to light.

And one of those secrets just might be deadly...

This is a full-length novel, approximately 100,000 words. 


Billionaire romance, romantic suspense, contemporary romance, Cinderella romance.
