Will the mighty Steele fall? 

He’d faced down madmen with guns, hunted thieves and jumped off buildings for fun. So why is Liam Steele at his wit’s end when Dr. Isabella Magnini needs his protection? The brilliant and beautiful scientist’s work is revolutionary, and someone wants to keep her insights secret—no matter what it costs.  

When the House of Steele comes together to protect Isabella, Liam realizes just how isolated he’s truly become. And as he and Isabella dodge bullets, fires and even an invasion, he knows he’s in more danger than ever. Because how will he ever let her go?

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 first book in my new series for Harlequin will be here soon. SILKEN THREATS (Harlequin Romantic Suspense, February 2015) is the first 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.


TEMPTING TARGET will follow in July and RISKY BUSINESS will be in the later part of 2015.


If you’d like to hear more about what’s happening with me and my books, I’d love to have you sign up for my newsletter (your emails are never sold or misused) or join me on Facebook or Twitter.


I wish you a wonderful holiday season, full of love, family and friends and a plenty of romance to keep you warm.


Happy Reading!
