My new book The Future Chosen, soon on Radish Fiction

Andres and Lourdes board on Pinterest

A few years ago, I began writing the story of young, future politicians Andres and Lourdes. (Read the short story “Extraordinary” on Clara Romance Journal.) This is a bit different from my usual romance books, first of all because Andres and Lourdes live in Isla, a country that doesn’t exactly exist.

What You Wanted

WYW share

It’s the classic one-night stand: Beach wedding, bridesmaid, groom’s friend. When Andrea and Damon meet, sparks fly, and they give in to the attraction. Sounds simple, but Andrea’s still getting over someone, and Damon thought he’d be hooking up with another person that night. It could still be simple, really, if they chalk it up to a weekend tryst and move on.

Tempting Victoria share

Victoria Bennett is in control and in charge all day every day, but sometimes she needs help. One of those times is when she needs to organize a romantic proposal weekend for her client, and the only person available to help her is the notorious heartbreaker Nathan Grant.

Victoria knows she shouldn’t fall for guys like Nathan, but that hasn’t prevented her from lusting after him all these years. It’s just one weekend on the beach, away from everyone they know, alone with the guy who could cause her perfectly coordinated world to crumble. Shouldn’t be a problem, right?

Back to Manila for my next two books-in-progress

Chic Manila

The next book I’m writing is set in Manila, featuring Filipino characters, again. It’ll fall under my Chic Manila series. Just thinking about it feels like a warm welcome back into my comfort zone, although I’m throwing in some more personal challenges my way so I don’t bore myself as I write it. You’ll be able to track the progress of my planning and writing here on Pinterest.
