The Balcony

About this ebook

Rock Star Romance with a Paranormal Twist.

In this unforgettable tale of loss and redemption, Emma is at her wits end. Having just moved into her first apartment in the Hollywood Hills, the intimidating characters next door are more than she bargains for, especially since her balcony, the very reason she rents the place, is situated right next to theirs.

Wanting to be left alone to wallow in self-pity, soul-destroyed rocker Wraith is at the end of his rope. The last thing he needs to deal with is his sexy new neighbor's undeniable presence, something that he and his notorious bandmates have gone without for way too long.

When their annoying flirtations get out of control will Wraith finally find it within himself to step in or will he do nothing much like he's done with his life these last two years? Will he become the hero that Emma desperately needs or is there more to this situation than meets the eye?

About the author

My stories are heavy on the romance with a healthy dose of steam. My characters range from irritating and quirky to sweet and loveable, sometimes all in one. I write about opposites attract. I bring together contrasting individuals and find common ground between these unlikely pairings.

My main goal is to show that being different is not a bad thing. It’s actually what sets us apart. It’s what people notice, but not what makes up our insides.

Outward appearances, religion, musical tastes, and lifestyle choice should not determine who we befriend or fall in love with. Beneath the surface of those obvious attributes lies the soul. It is at soul level where we connect.

Kindness, generosity, accountability are the aspects which make us who we are. They are the ingredients that define us. I write books that challenge pre-conceived notions and forces readers (with the gentlest of persuasions) to see that different is good.

Beyond all that heavy stuff, I write heartwarmingly comforting love stories featuring sexy Rockstars, Gothstars, and Happily Ever Afters.

Let my stories be the Sweet to Your Salt.

To quote one of my characters….
