I love stories, any story, especially stories with kissing. Books, TV shows, movies––if there’s love, I’m so in. Originally from Southern California, I now live in Hollywood, Florida with my family and two carrot-loving rescue dogs––a poodle-mix named Houdini Beauregarde and Sheba Reba Rita Peanut, a chihuahua-mix. Animals have always been an important part of my life, so it's not surprising that they play an important part in my stories, too.
Houdini was found running on the side of the 95 highway in North Miami during a thunderstorm and was rescued by the good people at Grateful Paws. Even though I wasn’t looking for a dog, he was such an affectionate, sweet guy that he stole my heart. After a few more meetings, some paperwork, and a home visit later, Houdini joined the family.
All Caleb Donovan has to do to redeem his family name is take a rundown Miami Beach apartment building and turn it into luxury condos. Easy, right?
Unfortunately, that would also turn the local dog park into a parking lot and the neighbors aren't having it. Caleb is faced with outright revolt, led by smart, beautiful building manager Riley Carson and her poodle, LouLou.
Can Riley and her canine sidekick convince Caleb that what's best for business isn't always best for the heart?
Lance Donovan agreed to dog sit only to help out his younger brother. Little does he know that an encounter with his ex-wife at the local dog park is going to turn his life upside down...

Carrie especially doesn't have time for her ex-husband, Lance Donovan. But when Lance meets Oliver, he's determined to connect with the son he didn't know he had, and the love he thought he'd lost.
Danielle hates how much it hurts to see Knox again, her first love who abandoned her when she needed him most.

Can she trust her heart to the one man who’s ever broken it?
