About the author

Hi, I'm Tamara.


I write sexy books for smart women. Buzzfeed said my latest novel, Constant Craving, is "the perfect read for when even chocolate can't satisfy your cravings." Scandalicious called the book "smart smut," with "diversity, a hero you love to hate and a kinky heroine.”


I'm married to an Italian and live near a beach in Florida. During the day I write real-life stories that don't end happily.  


I'm a fan of vintage pulp fiction book covers, Sinatra-era jazz, 1980s fashion, tropical chill, kombucha, gin, tonic, seashells, iPhones, Art Deco, telenovelas, coloring books, street art, coconut anything, strong coffee and newspapers.

“Tamara has such an engaging voice, sexy, likable heroes and heroines and a wry sense of humor.” - Beth Kery, New York Times Bestselling Author


While white-knuckling it on the turbulent flight from Florida to London Fashion Week, Samantha Citrouille is seated in business class next to a handsome stranger named Colin King. His low, smooth voice helps calm her nerves. But her panic reaches its peak when the plane is forced to land in Iceland due to mechanical failure. 


Distraught, she's horrified to discover that all hotels are booked due to a summer solstice festival. As the world’s top designer of tropical resort clothing, Samantha is used to luxury at her Palm Beach estate, not sleeping on airport benches with only a pashmina wrap for a blanket.


Her impossibly sexy seat-mate Colin kindly offers to share his accommodations. Samantha, emotionally wrung out, agrees for what she thinks is one quick night. When a freak volcano eruption forces Samantha and Colin to stay put for a long weekend, the two have nothing better to do than share cocktails, bare their past sins in conversation, and indulge in each other under the midnight sun.

But things become complicated after their idyllic fantasy weekend together. Colin, a self-described modern-day rake, is sure he’s finally found the woman of his dreams. But Samantha, who has her own fears and ghosts of the past, isn’t so certain. She'd rather fly around the world, twice, than have her heart broken again.


Tell Me a Fantasy is a companion novella to The Story Series. It should be read after Tell Me a Story.

Luca Rossi is a wanted man, waiting for justice.


On the run from the mafia and hiding out in Florida, the celebrated Italian writer has turned into a recluse, fearful that the next person he sees may also be the last. Waiting in isolation, he counts the days until he can breathe freely again and trusts no one, friend or foe.


A reporter determined to get to the bottom of the story


Skylar Shaw is an ambitious young reporter determined to make her name with a scoop – no matter what it takes. Beautiful, curvaceous, and fiery, her outward confidence masks hidden insecurities that push her to investigate – no matter what.


When a plane spirals out of control and plows deep into the beach opposite Luca’s hideout, he rushes out to help a victim. Gone before the authorities can take his name, Skylar soon tracks him down. Her intense curiosity about the mysterious rescuer may lead her down a path from which there is no return.


Sparks fly as Skylar falls for Luca’s exotic Italian accent and chiseled, tattooed body – and Luca finds his natural caution and reserves disarmed by the beautiful reporter.The two soon find themselves entangled in each other’s arms – and while Luca tries to keep his secret covered up, Skylar’s instincts lead her to dig deeper. What she uncovers brings them both to the attention of dangerous forces.
