Are you ready to be swept off your feet?

Well I have such exciting news, I’m not sure you can handle it.

For a few years now I’ve been plotting and planning and today is the day! I’m excited to announce a new anthology I’ve put together called Hope & Harmony, A Music Romance Anthology.


H&H is special.

Releasing on January 28. 2025, H&H features exclusive, heartfelt love stories written by my traditional and self-published romance author friends: Chelle Bliss, Stacey Marie Brown, Mari Carr, Jaine Diamond, Helen Hardt, Jillian Liota, Kat Mizera, Layla Reyne, M. Robinson, Becca Steele, Rachel Van Dyken, Meredith Wild, Julia Wolf and ME!

The best part about it? Proceeds from the sales of H&H will support MusiCares, the charity helping humans behind music because music gives so much to the world. Learn more about this incredible organization here:

Friends, I’ve curated H&H from start to finish with love and it wouldn’t be possible without our publisher, Meredith Wild and Page & Vine, agency representation by Stephanie Phillips at SBR Media and PR/Marketing helmed by the amazing Dani Sanchez at Wildfire Marketing.

Don’t miss out on this limited edition anthology. Preorder today to celebrate love, support artists, and give back to the community that inspires us all.


It’s been a while since I’ve given you an update on what’s next! I have some really cool author events coming up in 2024 and 2025. I’m also sneaking in—just for you my mailing list friends—a new series announcement. Book 1 in my new series, “Charming Irish” will be out this fall!


One of my favorite authors and anthology participant, Jaine Diamond, has a new book out! I devoured it in one sitting, it’s fantastic:

When my brother’s best friend proposes we get engaged, I’m a fool to say yes.

It’s a fake engagement, because men like Jameson Vance don’t fall in love with women like me.

He’s a gorgeous billionaire, a marketing genius and a playboy, and he’s only getting engaged to please his family.
I’m an introverted writer, just trying to start my life over, and I’d rather mingle with the rose bushes in his garden than fall in love again.

But when we share a bed, our sizzling chemistry blurs the line between fake and real. And when Jameson turns on the charm, I can’t help melting from his growly whispers of “my wife.”

When he won’t follow through on the explosive tension between us, though, I realize there’s so much more to this fake engagement than meets the eye. Because my fiancéis keeping one hell of a secret from me.

I know I’d be crazy to trust him with my heart.
But by the time I finally feel his searing touch, I know I’m already falling for his charming deception.

❤️ Billionaire
❤️ Fake fiancé
❤️ Only one bed
❤️ Alpha cinnamon roll hero
❤️ Brother’s best friend
❤️ Playboy Prince Charming / Cinderella vibes
❤️ “My wife”

Get Charming Deception here!

Well, that’s quite a bit update, don’t you think?  Hope your week is amazing.

With love,
