All Sarah Darling wants is a vacation to rest and rebuild her life. What she gets is a sexy sun-kissed surfer dude called Skylar Dawn.
The past two years of Sara’s life have been a nightmare of tragedy and loss. With nothing left but memories, she escapes to the first place that calls her name. The Outer Banks of North Carolina.
When she arrives in OBX, she is shocked when she discovers that she is the first and only guest at Skylar's Bed & Breakfast. An establishment run by a local skirt-chasing, rock-and-roll surfer. Despite his good looks and irresistible Southern charm, she can't help feel apprehensive.
Now what? Does Sara demand her money back and leave, or does she take her chances and stick around?

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….
“No need to fear with your warrior near.”
