champagnepreviewboldfinalI know you all have been wondering where I’ve been. I’ve been writing and over the summer I finished writing my first Erotic Romance, Champagne Bubbles & Lipstick Stains.

Upon arriving in London, Taylor learns her new employer is a reclusive billionaire bachelor. Lord Nathaniel Branagan is scruffy, brash, and downright rude. Nathaniel is closed into himself and Taylor tries to break his hard shell.
When Nathaniel opens up to her, she finds he is much more than he puts off and finds herself seduced by him.

Exclusive Excerpt: Sleepless Fate

I am so excited to announce that my next book Sleepless Fate will be released on June 10th. On my Facebook page, I promised that I would share an exclusive excerpt from the book if I reached 200 likes. I reached that goal, so here you are, an exclusive excerpt from Sleepless Fate.




LUNCH WAS THE same as I spent it every workday. I sat alone in my office picking at my food, barely taking bites. I think my body had gotten used to surviving on just bites of food a day. I packed up what I needed and made my way towards the executive floor of our office.

Getting off the elevator, I found myself in a reception area with dark brown leather couches and plants. Sitting at the receptionist desk was a girl who used to work on my floor before she got bumped up.

“Brielle, hi!” She said cheerfully as she spotted me.

“Hey Layla. I have a meeting with Mr. Bailey,” I informed the perky brunette.

“Yep, I see you on the schedule. You can go right in,” she said. I gave her a smile and went to the door of his office. I gave a couple knocks out of courtesy.

“Come in!” Shouted a male voice.

I opened the door and walked into the large office. The floor to ceiling windows showcased one of the most beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay I’d ever seen. This was for sure a perk of having our offices in the Transamerica Pyramid, the tallest skyscraper in San Francisco. There was a wall with a tank built into it full of exotic fish, and one side of the room had two couches and a coffee table. Right in front of the windows was a dark cherry wood desk. The back of the chair was turned to me, but it was obvious someone was sitting in it.

“Hello, Mr. Bailey. I believe we have a meeting,” I said shyly. I wanted to laugh at myself for being so apprehensive. I for sure wasn’t timid and when it came to business, I was on top of my game.

“Mmhm… yes she is here… I will talk to you later….Goodbye sir,” I heard the voice say. I then saw an arm come from behind the chair. He had the receiver of a phone in his hand which he gently hung up before his chair turned around and I instantly knew what April was talking about.

The man in the chair gave me the sexiest smile I’d ever seen. I watched him stand and run
his fingers through his dark brown hair. He had a firmly chiseled jawline and his nose was pointed and strong. My panties went wet in seconds. I cursed myself for having this reaction to this stranger, when I was an engaged woman.Firstmeeting

He walked around his desk and came straight to me nearly gliding. Once in front of me he pulled me into a hug. I inhaled his cologne. “Brielle Elliot. Just as beautiful as always,”

It took me a moment. He was talking as if he knew me. I surely didn’t know this guy. I would remember if I’d met him before. He pulled away, his eyes seem to examine my body and take everything in. I wasn’t dressed provocatively or anything, but his eyes studied me like I was a piece of meat or something. I just watched him before I finally found my words to speak.

“I’m sorry, but I don’t know you,” I interjected. He gave me a smirk and I couldn’t keep from wiggling as I felt a certain heat between my legs.

“I guess losing 150 pounds, shaving, and getting Lasik eye surgery can make a guy look different,” He said. I stared at him and tried to figure out where I knew him from. I tried to imagine him heavy and with glasses. “Think, Stanford Business School,” he commented and I did my best to think. At once my eyes went wide. He couldn’t be.

“Paddy?” I questioned.

“In the flesh… a lot less flesh,” he laughed as he spoke.

“Oh my God… um, wow!” I now knew who he was. Paddy B was what everyone called him. In school, he was nerdy and chubby, had a beard, but was a boss at statistics and when it came time for exams everyone wanted to be his best friend, and study buddy.

“I guess becoming the stepson of a billionaire can change things. You know, Lasik and a personal trainer. Just the small things,” He laughed once more as he spoke.

“You look amazing,” I said happily to the guy I now recognized as my old friend. “But you didn’t need all of that. You were perfect before.”

“I was okay,” he shrugged. “I got a few girls I guess.” He gave me a soft grin as he spoke.  “Though the most beautiful one, she kept slipping through my fingers. I asked her out one day after study group. She blew me off for this boyfriend of hers. Though, she still has her maiden name, so I might have a chance,” He gave me a wink. I remembered the day he asked me out, but I had Keaton… I still had Keaton.

“Well, about that…” I trailed off.

“We have so much to catch up on, come,” He put his hand on the small of my back. I shivered at his delicate touch as he led me to one of the couches.
