Scarred Beauties


A blend of sweet and steamy romantic suspense…

This romantic suspense series has been hard for me to classify by heat level. It has been labeled “inspirational romance” by Amazon and other customers. It is NOT clean, but it doesn’t have enough intimacy (one scene) to justify or satisfy a steamier genre.

Scarred Beauties Series books:
A Promise in Ash (on Amazon)
(This series is on hold, 4 other books)

If you liked A Promise in Ash and want me to finish the series, contact me!

A Promise in Ash contains my first ever published sex scene. Further books will likely contain more steamy content as I get more experienced writing it.

There will always be an underlying theme of family and a struggle for the main characters to find their places in the world. I don’t write erotica because I have no desire to study sex as a plot. I hope you’ll find a balance of suspense and romance in each book that is engaging.

Thanks for reading!

A Promise in Ash (Evan and Norah)

A romantic-suspense novel featuring: miscarriage, hot co-workers, cybersecurity threats, and the struggle of defining family.
With only an abusive mother-figure to guide her, Norah has learned everything the hard way. An unexpected pregnancy with her fiancé changed her career plans. But miscarriage and betrayal thrust everything in reverse again. Eerie things start happening at work, and Norah finds herself at the center of the investigation.

Secrets tumble forth from Norah’s father, her ex-fiancé, and the mystery around her adoption, breaking the walls she’s put up to protect her heart. Now, more than ever, she longs for trust, love, and a family of her own.

Bonding with her handsome co-worker, Evan, and his teenage daughter, Ashley, Norah gets a glimpse of cohesive family life. She finds herself falling for Evan and becoming an unlikely source of help and understanding for Ashley. Evan and Ashley have an empty seat at their table, one Norah wishes to fill. Yet the guilt of taking the previous woman’s place threatens to keep them apart.

Can Norah overcome the scars of her past and discover her inner strength? And will the private letter from her father answer her questions or destroy the family, and the man, she’s come to love?
