The Best Kind of Trouble



 She has complete control…and he’s determined to take it away

A librarian in the small town of Hood River, Natalie Clayton’s world is very nearly perfect. After a turbulent childhood and her once-wild ways, life is now under control. But trouble has a way of turning up unexpectedly—especially in the tall, charismatically sexy form of Paddy Hurley….

And Paddy is the kind of trouble that Natalie has a taste for.

Even after years of the rock and roll lifestyle, Paddy never forgot the two wickedly hot weeks he once shared with Natalie. Now he wants more…even if it means tempting Natalie and her iron-grip control. But there’s a fine line between well-behaved andmisbehaved—and the only compromise is between the sheets!

One Bad Thing, One Good Thing

Bad news first – due to a chromic health issue I’ve been dealing with since March, I had to leave RWA early. I do apologize and believe me when I tell you no one is more disappointed than I am.


Better news is that Amazon has the digital version of LAID BARE on sale for $2.99!  I have NO idea ho long this will last or if any of the other retailers will follow suit or not. But if they do, I’ll most certainly let you know here!
