Current Release: Rules of Seduction

What's your book about?

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

He'll be the dream and the dirty fantasy...

Through with both her controlling ex and relationships, Ava Webber is determined to explore the spicy and sometimes forbidden appetites of the exclusive BDSM nightclub, Serve. Here, she'll get exactly what she long as it's from a man she doesn't know.

Nolan Hart ensures that Serve's clients get what they want, how they want it. But with one look at the curvy brunette, Nolan knows he's the man to fulfill her desires. As the anonymous lover, he's Ava's dirtiest fantasy. Outside of Serve, he's her charming, smartass friend.

But Nolan wants more. More than Ava is willing to give. And as long as the blindfold stays on, she'll never discover that the two men she's falling for are one and the same..

What should readers expect from you titles?

Spicy sex scenes and emotional journey of two characters.

What's next for you as an author?

Just keep writing. I'm super happy and beyond grateful that I get to work with some wonderful people and want to continue writing Brazens!

What is your favorite way to procrastinate?

Baking for sure! Usually cookies, cakes or pies. I'll just shut my laptop and decide that it's time for a double chocolate layer 9 AM...

Getting a book to market often takes a village. Who has helped you on the way?

There a lot of wonderful people surrounding me that I couldn't do any of this without. My agent, Jill Marsal is incredible. My editor Stephen and the entire staff at Entangled. Curtis, Debbie, Heather, Liz and Katie are all amazing!

Do you have a favorite or interesting reader meet moment?

Yes. I went to Las Vegas for a conference last year. I went as a reader, flying under the radar, but a reader noticed I was there and asked me to meet her. She had brought my books on the off chance I'd show up and had them with her. She had been in an accident earlier that year and all she could do was lay in the hospital bed and read. She had a book of inspiring quotes and pictures. She asked me to sign her books and her journal and I was truly humbled. Her spirit is bright and so special. She was the most incredible, kindest woman I've met and I was so grateful I had the chance to be in her presence.

If you could have dinner with an author, who would it be?

Shakespeare. Hands down. Shakespeare.

If you could travel to another time, would you choose past or future or would you stick where you are at? And Why?

I like where I'm at. However, if I got the chance to visit, I'd go back. I'd love to experience the 20's, maybe cause some trouble. It just seemed like a fun time full of growth and change.

Do you feel music has inspired your writing?

Yes! I LOVE --no--NEED music in my life. I will match scenes to certain songs and more often than not, I try to write as if I'm living in a country song.

What's your everyday life like? Do you write full-time or do you also hold another job?

I write full time. My day consists of staring at a computer, feeding my caffeine addiction, and staring off into space for hours at a time.

Are you an introvert or extrovert?

A bit of both. I keep to myself a fair amount, but I definitely get cabin fever and the need to get out and make some noise takes over.

What is your favorite or most fun place to shop online?

Michael Kors
