With Cinco de Mayo almost here Alex will be whipping up a refreshing cocktail to go with whatever yummy treats Shellie has planned. All the ladies will be there; Alex, Shellie, Sadie (her story is a WIP), Amelia, Luna and Trixie. You met Trixie in A Little Bit In Love but you’ll learn more about her in Sadie’s upcoming story.
There will be margaritas, there will be salsa and there will be tons and tons of MAN TALK!
So grab your favorite berry, I used boysenberry because they are tangy and Alex doesn’t like “no stinkin’ sweet cocktails” and add this to your next GNO! Continue reading Alex’s Berry-Peño Margarita!
Good news, great news actually! The wonderful folks at Sinfully Sweet Productions have helped me launch my first Blog Tour with them! The A Little Bit In Love Blog Tour runs from April 8th to 22nd if you want to swing on by!

Continue reading A Little Bit In Love BLOG TOUR – April 8-22
One of the things you’ll notice throughout Conflict of Interest is that most of the get togethers revolve around various forms of alcohol. Whether it’s Margarita Mondays or Wine Wednesday, they grab a few bottles and get together to talk about men, life, jobs and pretty much anything else important to them.
Part of this comes from my love of alcohol and part of it comes from testing different wines, beers and spirits on my travels. Although Germany is known for its beer (or bier) they also have some pretty good wine selections from my personal favorite Schwarzriesling to the only white I can drink…Riesling. Whether its two buck chuck or an expensive bottle, I’m willing to give it all a try just like the women of Mustang Prairie. Continue reading Mustang Prairie Girls Love Their Drinks!!!!
After losing her birth parents and her adopted parents Alexis Mabry is used to being alone. So after a year of horrible dates with everyone from sugar baby wannabes to cross dressers, she decides to stop dating altogether and focus on what matters most: her business and her friends in Mustang Prairie.
When she meets a handsome stranger on a trip to California she starts to wonder if its time to get back in the game.
Baxter Thompsen spent the last decade building his empire to the exclusion of everything but sex. Now tired of the socialites and starlets, he wants someone real. When he does she only wants a vacation fling and it’s up to Baxter to show her that lust is great, but love is the real prize.
Is it lust or are Baxter and Alex more than a little bit in love?
RELEASE DAY: APRIL 7, 2015
Pre-order your copy today! A Little Bit In Love
You ever enter a town and you…just know? You belong and you can just tell that its a place you’ll love forever. Well even though I am a city girl and I will tell you that often enough, when I sat down to write my first romance since my teen years I thought about what that town would look like for me.
The result? Mustang Prairie.
Mustang Prairie is a small town in central Illinois filled with your every day weirdos like me. You’ve already met Shellie in Conflict of Interest. Shellie is a do-gooder through and through. She wants everyone to be happy and she’s willing to work hard for those she loves to achieve it.
Soon you’ll get to meet Alex, Shellie’s BFF and a small business owner in Mustang Prairie. Alex is a bit more fiery than Shellie but she’s willing to go to the mat for her loved ones, as you’ll see when A Little Bit In Love is released on April 7th.
But one of the things that’s so great about small towns is all the other little characters that make a town a home. The frisky elderly couple, the salt of the earth waitress/restaurant owner and the chef with the fake French accent. These characters have become my second home, my friends…my people.
Get to know Shellie and her love interest Noel this week when you pick up Conflict of Interest for FREE! Then next week swing on by and pick up Alex’s story, A Little Bit In Love!

So my teaser for A Little Bit In Love is finally ready for public consumption. This is the story of Alex and Baxter, who want different things in relationships. What was supposed to be a vacation affair ends up as so much more…
She Was Done With Men…
Alexis Mabry has given up her search for love. Between wannabe sugar babies, toe suckers and the guy who wanted to share her lingerie she is fed up with the dating scene and bows out gracefully. Mostly. Instead she focuses on what makes sense to her: her company and her friends in Mustang Prairie. When she meets Gorgeous Baxter on a trip to Los Angeles she starts to wonder if that strange feeling in her heart is love. Continue reading A Little Bit In Love – TEASER!
I am close to completion on Alexis’ story, A Little Bit In Love. The good news is that my cover is done!
Alex and Baxter have been a fun couple to write about and even though I can’t say much, I will say that Alex is as sassy as she was in Conflict of Interest if not sassier. Parts of this story will take place in California where Noel and Shellie spend much of their time. I chose to place some of the story in California because it was my home for quite a few years and living overseas now I do miss the clear blue skies (minus the smog) and quick access to the beach.
Some of your favorite characters will return–I’m talking about you Amelia–with more information and you’ll meet a few new folks like the Alex’s elderly neighbors who I have to say are a hoot. I’m aiming for release around December 26th or so so keep coming back for more.
Conflict of Interest will be released on September 17, 2014 on Amazon.com. Pre-order your copy today!
About this book:
She wasn’t looking for love…
Shellie Winthrop is done with men, especially the too good looking, too smooth for their own good variety. She just wants to help her fellow Mustang Prairie citizens make their businesses successful. She certainly doesn’t want him, does she?
He wasn’t looking for her…
The last place Noel Hampton wants to be is Mustang Prairie. There’s no Starbucks, no Armani and no skyscrapers for hundreds of miles. What he wants is to climb the ladder of success and get back to the city. What he doesn’t want is a feisty whiskey-eyed imp fighting him at every turn.
Sometimes what we fight the hardest is what we love the most…
Her goals could cost him his career; his goals could cost her the town she loves. Will Shellie and Noel learn that sometimes not getting what you want is just what you need?
