Scarred Beauties


Promise Collection Books are now called the Scarred Beauties Series
All books feature characters from the “Promise” world.

These books are being redesigned to better match customer interests. Collection relaunch planned for 2022.

Scarred Beauties Series books:
A Promise in Ash (on Amazon)
A Promise of Ink & Sin 
A Promise Broken
A Promise by Midnight
A Promise Beneath the Stars

All of my steamy romance books may feature the following: cursing, miscarriage, possible self-harm, violence, abuse, suspense, and always intimacy. 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?


Coming Soon

A Promise of Ink and Sin (Jace and Daphne) Jace is a friend of Norah’s ex, a secret admirer

A Promise of Ink and Sin follows Jace, the humble son of billionaires who works as a manager at the company where quiet Daphne is hired as a graphic designer. After experiencing bullying at work, Daphne sinks further into her depression, and Jace is forced to fight through his own dark past to show her how special she is. His trick: find something that makes her feel a better high than self-harm. He’ll show her just how deep that healing can go.

What Jace doesn’t expect is how strong Daphne bonds to him. After she lashes out at his parents for the way they treat him, he’s forced to make a decision about their future. Will he destroy their bond to protect his family name or has he finally found his burning flame?

This book is written but needs editing.
