Foreplay has always been one of my favorites parts of a book to write. I love the teasing and the build-up and everything that leads to sex when two people are perfect for each other. I think that’s why I love my Beautiful Shame series so much.
It’s a series where I get to give myself permission to add in all the dirty talk and teasing I want, and somehow it just makes the story come together even more perfectly in my head.
As I sat down in October and started playing with different ideas about who the characters would be for the next Beautiful Shame book, Archer and Declan came to life quickly. Archer looks all sweet and shy on the outside, but that’s just hiding a wicked fantasy life and a desperate need to be understood.
Declan is irreverent and funny and loves driving Archer crazy.
They’re almost combustible together from day one, but with these two, all that heat and desire lets them see who the other really is without the façade we usually show people. They’re so cute together and were so much fun to write, I can’t wait for you to meet them.
Check out the first chapter of Beautiful Shame: Archer & Declan.
It’s up on preorder now and will release on the 18th!

My confused Leon and my sweet Morgan…their story turned out differently than I thought it would when I sat down to originally begin figuring out Leon, but I love the way it turned out.
One of my favorite things to write about is college age characters because they’re still figuring out who they are, and I love that whole process. At the start of Learning to Trust, Leon had shoved his emotions to the back burner and was basically just putting one foot in front of the other. Destin pulled him out of his shell a bit (complaining and grumbling the whole way lol), but Leon still didn’t know who he was.
In Learning to Love, they both grow even more and we get to see more of Leon’s background. Meeting Leon’s parents for the first time is stressful and interesting for Morgan, but it really lets him get to know more about who Leon is inside.
Watching these two come together has been so much fun. Learning to Love is the last book for them, but I know that they’re going to pop up later down the line in interesting places. If you haven’t read Learning to Trust yet, these two have sweet age play, a bit of BDSM, and some fun scenes with Destin from The Only Way to Dream.
Check out the first chapter of Learning to Love which is up on preorder now and will go live on the 13th of November.

My omegas are back. This time it’s Dakota in the spotlight. He’s funny and definitely not your typical vision of what an omega should be. Jonah mentioned several times that he thought my distractible writer Dakota needed a keeper…well, his keeper has arrived.
Tristan comes from a family of scatterbrained authors, and he’s always seen himself as the glue that keeps things together. While some people might have resented the role, he takes pride in looking after the people who create wonderful stories…and considering how long he’s had a bit of a crush on Dakota, this is one Dom who’s not going to drag his feet letting the sexy writer know exactly how he feels.
Of course this has a hysterical drunk scene along with some naughty fantasy role-playing I can’t wait to show you. Dakota is up on pre-order now and will be out in September.
The freebie Warren is a great way to try out the series if you haven’t had a chance so far, and if you’re ready for Dakota, check out the first chapter where he meets Tristan for the first time.
