There will be margaritas, there will be salsa and there will be tons and tons of MAN TALK!

Mustang Prairie Girls Love Their Drinks!!!!

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!!!!

Conflict of Interest – TEASE!

Trying to figure out what exactly about your book will attract a reader is…close to impossible. I mean some people come for the sex and stay for the love story…others only want the love story. What’s a writer to do?

I just try to give a little bit of both because sometimes when I read a story I’m completely flabbergasted about how a few rounds of hot sex leads to love and other times I’m like, “You can’t be in love yet, you haven’t even had sex!” So you see it’s hard as a reader and writer.

But I’ve come up with a few I think get the job done. Agree or disagree?

Welcome To Mustang Prairie

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.

Conflict of Interest

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!

Conflict of Interest – AVAILABLE NOW!

Shellie Winthrop is happy with her life in Mustang Prairie. She has her best friend Alex, her consulting business that helps the town businesses prosper, Merlot Mondays (and Tuesdays and Wednesdays and…you get it) plus a town full of people she’s known and loved most of her life. When super sexy Noel Hampton moves to town he shows her how much happier she could be.

Noel Hampton is not happy about moving from NYC to the speck of a town called Mustang Prairie. But if he wants to make VP of KitchenMart he’ll go and he will make it work. But when he encounters a petite spitfire hellbent on standing in his way, Noel finds there is more to life than career advancement.

Conflict of Interest is Book 1 in the Mustang Prairie Romance series but each book can be read as a standalone story…no cliffhangers!

A Little Bit In Love – TEASER!

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!
