I feel a hand in my hair, brushing a soft strand away and I roll into his touch, wanting more. “Joel?” I whisper with shut eyes and a smile. When did he get home? I feel coarse rough hands slide down my neck and my stomach tenses. Something feels off. Joel’s hands are smooth. My eyes flash open, seeing an unfamiliar short chubby male figure looming over me. His breath smells like rancid milk. The room is dark from the sun setting and the lights off, but I can still make out enough features for a lineup.

His hands forcefully pin mine above my head, giving me no time to try and retrieve my gun across the room. I need to fight back. My eyes widen as my adrenaline kicks in.

“Where’s the baby?”

Sirene Devereaux came to town, looking for a man; but not just any man, she was looking for a vampire. 

This wasn’t about finding love. She was in town to do a job. It was business, not pleasure. She had to hunt down one particular vampire and make his very existence a living hell. 

To hide her true identity, she got a job waitressing and eventually some gigs singing, since that was her real passion. Of course there was more to her than met the eye. Sirene was a witch.

It didn’t take her long to find a place to stay, make friends and find her vampire. In fact, he found her.

Fabian Sorensen wants Sirene the moment he lays eyes on her, but unfortunately his natural charm doesn’t seem to work on her. He’s used to getting any woman he wants, yet she seemsimmune.

When he finally gets the chance to spend a night with her, he discovers she’s no ordinary woman, she’s a witch and he hates witches. It has never ended well for him when he encounters them.

Sirene is no different. She hurts him, humiliates him and attacks the one thing precious to him, his manhood and for that, he wants revenge. He learns she’s been sent to torture him and she’s a serious threat to his normally controlled world. He has survived over 600 years and suddenly everything is threatened by one tiny raven haired witch.

She thwarts his attempts to make her pay for what she did to him. Any time he’s around her, she completely unmans him. He hates that he is attracted to her. He uses women for bloodand sex, he doesn’t do relationships, so why is this one messing with his head so much?

Sirene too, is drawn to him which goes against everything she is in town to do. She’s supposed to loathe him, not like him. The attraction between them is powerful but will it ultimately destroy them?

When a series of challenges arises and their very lives are threatened, can they survive? With so much against them, is it possible for a witch and a vampire to truly find love?

Rough Ride Romeo

Crawley Creek 2

Cowboys don’t cry, but Roman “Romeo” Freemont certainly has enough tragic history to spend his days teary-eyed. Instead he’s turned to women and liquor in an effort to soothe his aches and pains, but when a petite brunette with a feisty temper comes crashing into his world, he realizes what he’s been missing.


Francesca “Franki” Scott has walked through fire herself. Nowadays she just isn’t a people person, and she’s definitely not interested in a wannabe playboy ranch owner either. She has a mission and it could mean life or death for someone close to her if she gets distracted.


Closing the gap between these two wounded souls could mean surviving yet another tragedy. Will their determination to hide their pain from themselves be their downfall, or will they come through this rough ride together?

Her breasts heaved under her shirt when she finally tugged her lips free and took a breath.

“Damn, cowboy. You sure can kiss.”

Grinning like a loon, he let his fingers find the hem of her shirt and the soft skin beneath. “So can you. Since that first time we kissed all I’ve thought about is getting another taste of you.” He rocked his hips forward, grinding his dick against her covered pussy and she gasped, “Holding you in my arms, and sinking deep inside of you…”

 “Oh, my god.” Her moan was sensual, and it set his heart racing. What would she sound like when she came? Would she be loud and scream his name to the heavens, or would she whimper quietly and come on a sweet sigh? He couldn’t wait to find out.

 Pushing at her shirt he exposed her tanned belly, and grinned with delight at the navel ring adorning her abdomen. “Cheese and biscuits that’s sexy as hell.”

 “I got it when I was eighteen. Sort of a spur of the moment thing, but I liked it so I’ve left it in.” Her eyes glowed like a pair of blue candle flames, and the fullness of her perfectly pouty lips called out to him. She was the most beautiful sight he’d seen and he’d barely skimmed the surface.

 Easing the cotton t-shirt higher, he helped her shrug it off, and then quickly divested her of her modest, nude-colored bra. She wrinkled her nose at it when he tugged it away from her full breasts, and he chuckled. “What’s that look for, baby?”

 “I didn’t know…I mean…I probably would have picked something different to wear if I’d known someone would be seeing that tonight.” Her hands were still hiding her breasts from view.

 Tossing the bra to the floor, he bent and stole another kiss from her before moving his lips lower to her jaw and throat. “You’re perfect in whatever you’re wearing,” he murmured against her collarbone before tugging her hands away from her stunning breasts. “Or not wearing. You’re absolutely perfect.”


Another amazing addition in the Crawley Creek series! This one is one that I have been waiting to see because of who Romeo is! The story was exceptionally written and gives us a perfect balance of smoldering scenes mixed with a love that you see as it grows from two broken people. Watch out because she doesn’t hold back in any of her scenes, love it!!!!Her characters are real and could be in any situation which is one reason why I enjoy this story so much! Romeo shows a tough outer shell but hes hurting inside and sets it all away with woman and drinking. Hes had a hard life! There is a reason he’s named Romeo! At the crunch of time he meets a spunky and feisty woman who seems to be hiding secrets! Franki, I love her character because she takes nothing for granted and understands blood is thicker than water. When she searches for that blood and it takes her to the small town everything has gone wrong but hopefully what she seeks will be found.  She’s tough but does have her breaking point.  Can these two help each other out in their broken hearts and learn to trust each other! Has the Romeo of the group finally met his match? Read this sexy and fun story because once you read one you won’t stop with this author.  She captures your from the beginning and webs you into her novels until the end! This story was definitely no exception there.  The plot had plenty of excitement and heart throbbing love while it flowed. I can’t wait to find out about Vin! I highly recommend this read!

Blurb for A Vixen in Venice:

The newest addition to the Totally Five Star series

He’s an art thief on the run—with her heart.

Look closer, into Totally Five Star Venice, where art curator Monique LeBres has just walked through the doors of the newly opened, swanky luxury hotel to assist with their art collection. Alessandro Bonnard, the world-renowned art connoisseur and collector, has been sent incognito to supervise Monique and oversee her acquisitions for the hotel.

Concealing his true identity, Alessandro is intrigued by the art-loving vixen with an appetite for kinky sex. He pursues Monique, charming her at every turn, taking her to places she’s never been—both in and out of the bedroom.

Monique falls hard for the man who has utterly captured her heart, only to find out he isn’t who she thought he was.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal sex, public sex, voyeurism and soft BDSM.

Excerpt from A Vixen in Venice:

Follow the whole blog tour to read more of the story, each excerpt will follow on from the previous one!

Chapter One:

The cobblestones proved an unsuitable terrain for both her suitcases and the four-inch heels Monique had unwisely chosen to wear for her arrival at her brand new job. She dragged her luggage behind her, jet lag combined with frustration mounting for Monique Le Bres as she traversed the maze of canals, making her way impatiently through the narrow passageways of Venice. The vaporetto driver had said that her hotel was just a short walk away when she’d departed at her stop on the Grand Canal. But now, deep in the thicket of Venice’s many twists and turns, Monique would be damned if she could tell where she was.

After glancing down at the small map she clutched in one hand, Monique looked back up at the tiny storefronts crammed along the waterway, trying her best not to be overrun by the barrage of tourists filling the tight corridors that ran between buildings and the canal’s murky edge. Searching for landmarks and any discernable signage, she bumped her way between tourists who were busy ogling the unusual architecture that, at that moment, proved more of an impediment than an attractant.

Tugging at her suitcases, Monique forged on.

The last thing she wanted to do was be late for her new job.

Lurching sideways to avoid a family clutching ice cream cones and pointing enthusiastically at the sights, Monique teetered on her heels to escape bearing the brunt of their gelatos as they passed. Oblivious to the obstacle they presented to Monique, they carried on, leaving her in their wake.

The wheels on her cumbersome luggage stuck on a rogue stone at the same time her heel gave way. Tumbling downward to the uneven cobbles, Monique gasped.

Just as her bottom grazed the ground, someone reached out, swooping her back onto her feet in one swift motion.

“Mademoiselle, soyez prudent.” A deep voice urged her to be careful in French.

Monique squinted into the late-day sun at nothing short of a vision. A majestic man, early forties, with chin-length sandy blond hair, a goatee and deep-set blue eyes that were rimmed by thin metal glasses stood before her, her hand clasped in his. The man’s tailored, camel hair overcoat told her he was distinguished, as did the flash of his fancy watch, probably Swiss and very expensive from the sparkle of the crystal that caught her eye as she steadied herself.

“Stai bene, Signorina?” He asked if she was okay in a beautiful swoosh of Italian. The words slipped between his lips and seemed to pool like honey on the cool stones.

First he spoke French then Italian. It was official. Monique must be in heaven. She’d heard the stereotypes and the holiday stories of her friends vacationing in Europe, but nothing had prepared her for the man who still had her hand in his.

“Fine, yes, thank you, merci—I mean grazie,” she offered, flustered and realizing she was quite able to stand on her own. Reluctantly, she let go of his hand to reach down and remove her broken-heeled shoe. “Just tripped on a stone. Una scarpa verso il bass…dieci per andare.” She hoped her Italian wasn’t too rusty.

He just looked at her. Oh damn, it must be more rusty than I thought.

Character Interview: Monique Le Bres, heroine from A Vixen in Venice

Bio: Monique is a no holds barred vixen who has dragged herself from her Kansas trailer park roots right to the big time as Art Curator for a swanky new Venice hotel, part of the Totally Five Star series. Armed with a sharp wit, a taste for the kinky and a passion for both work and play that rivals no other, Monique meets her match when she meets Luc Umbere.

What do you think of Venice so far Monique?

I only just arrived in Venice yesterday, but I have to keep pinching myself that I’m not in Kansas anymore. I’m a bit dubious about my young supervisor Donovan Amatus, sure he’s a looker but he seems a clueless flirter too. Luckily, I’ve met a few men with wandering hands before so I am quite sure I can handle him. Now, if only Totally Five Star would have given me a real man…now that would have been fun.

What do you consider a real man, what kind of man is your ideal lover?

Good question. I’m a girl who likes a little variety. Wink wink. I like my men strong, smart, tall and with a wicked sense of humor and who are devils in the bedroom. Oh, I do wish I’d meet someone like that here in Venice. Someone like that man who saved my fall in the calle yesterday. I even had a dream about him last. And it was hot. After all work and no play makes Monique a very dull girl. J

Monique, you strike me as a woman who knows what she wants. What is your greatest weakness?

Ummm, well that would have to be my blind ambition at times. Most people see that as a plus but for me it can also be a negative. I can be so focused that I don’t see the real situation developing sometimes, especially if there is a sexy distraction. I don’t see that happening though here in Venice. No man is going to set me off my game. Of course, it’s only day two here for me at Totally Five Star. Monique chuckles mischievously.

Thank you for having me as your guest. It was delightful to chat with you, but I must run now, Donovan wants to give me a tour of the rooftop terrace. Can’t keep him waiting, I have an art empire to amass for James Conroy III.
