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.

Formula World racer Dante Annunziata is known for his prowess behind the wheel. Now in his final year of racing, the fiery Italian will let nothing stand in his way of a winning season before taking over his family’s business.
American Savannah Jenkins is the heiress to her father’s global auto company, and wants to learn the business from the ground up. So when she becomes Formula World’s first female tire changer, she’s lauded by everyone — except Dante, her team’s brooding and sexy driver. He doesn’t think a woman has any place in the male-dominated sport, but the fiery Savannah knows otherwise. Their strong personalities clash immediately, and the attraction between the dark Italian and the bold Southern girl sizzles both on and off the track.
When paparazzi secretly snap photos of Dante and Savannah going head to head, the team’s owner concocts a plan to stop reporters from sniffing around. Dante and Savannah must pretend to be lovers to keep their jobs with the team.
Suddenly, she's no pioneer — she's a fake fiancee! But hearts race faster than engines when Dante and Savannah do more than just pretend. After a whirlwind race season, Dante realizes that his Southern beauty is more captivating than he anticipated and he’ll do anything to claim her as his … forever.
A business on the brink of bankruptcy. An indecent proposal arriving at just the perfect time.
The terms are simple enough for Justine Lavoie: For one month, Rafael Menendez de Aviles — her first love, her one downfall — gets to do anything he desires with her. In return, her business gets everything it needs.
But is that really all he wants? Or is he out for revenge? Could there more on the table that she’s not ready to take on, like love the second time around... even when the first time almost destroyed them?

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.

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.
