The Professional


Her sexy neighbor turns savior in this next Dangerous in Dallas romance! 

Despite her job as a wedding planner, Violet Richardson doesn’t believe a happy-ever-after is in her future. And when she’s kidnapped by a killer, she’s surprised that rescue comes in the form of her tempting yet irritating neighbor Max Baldwin. 

Trying to forget his dark past, Max never meant to take on his attractive neighbor’s troubles. But now the bickering pair must outrun a thug who’s determined to get his hands on mysterious jewels he thinks are in Violet’s possession. And as they race for their lives through Dallas’s summer heat, Max and Violet may finally open their eyes to the burning passion they share.

Welcome to

Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone’s ready and geared up for the holidays. I can already taste the Thanksgiving turkey and the holiday goodies that quickly follow!

I’m excited to share the news that the third book in my new series for Harlequin will be here soon. THE PROFESSIONAL (Harlequin Romantic Suspense, October 2015) is the third book in my Dangerous in Dallas series. The series revolves around three women who own a bridal boutique in Dallas’s Design District. Although they’ve been working hard and building their business, they’ve done it all without realizing there’s something rather intriguing buried in the floor.

Fortunately, they have some very sexy neighbors – ex-military men who own the architectural firm down the street – who come to their aide in uncovering the mystery of what’s buried in the shop.

I’m so excited to bring you the new series and hope you’re as intrigued by what’s beneath the surface at Elegance and Lace as you are by the sexy romances that come as a result.

DANGEROUS IN DALLAS will follow in the later part of 2015.
