Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from my debut, TAKING CHANCES. It’s available now at Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

Taking Chances is the first in a series of books I’m calling The Love Projects. Taking Chances is the story of Lydia and Jake. The blurb and cover are below. LAST WEEK: Jake tried to control is already raging urges. THIS WEEK: As promised, I’m sharing their first moments in the board room. Lydia has arrived first and she’s standing by the window looking at the ravine behind the building. Now that Jake’s entered the room, she’s trying to calm her desires.

No matter how hard she tried, her mind leapt to her fantasy. She imagined her body rocking against Jake in a steady rhythm matching the sway of the trees.

A strong wind tore through the ravine and forced the trees to move. The unavoidable movement shook her from her comfort zone. Lydia was rocked by the unexpected change the sight ignited in her fantasy. The intensity changed, and she had a hard time calming her breathing.

A warm hand pressed into her back shaking her from her heated dream.

“Lydia, are you okay?”


As much as she thinks about Jake, she wasn’t prepared for the real thing. <~ You can <tweet that> if you want.

Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to takingchances1mlove one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he has the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies, and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. But together they can find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed love.

I’m holding a GIVEAWAY through the end of September to celebrate my debut.

  1. I love the interplay between the outer world that she’s seeing, and the effect it has on her/her fantasy, and then the jolt back to a reality she might not be ready to face. Well done.
