Kitty Kerr is a high-flying lawyer when her career plans are derailed by the luscious blackberries from Lucy Shen’s Country Mouse Farms. Kitty can’t get enough of the fruit, or of Lucy. Suddenly, she’s wanting things she never dared to want—Lucy, and the life on the farm. But how will being an artisan cook/farmer fit with her legal ambitions and city habits?

Between her beautiful farm and her sculpture, Lucy’s life is set. Falling for a big city lawyer is not part of the plan. Even as Kitty helps make her dreams of spotlighting her farm’s produce in restaurants a reality, Lucy’s terrified that she and the farm aren’t enough to keep Kitty interested in love and the simpler things in life.

Pulled in two different directions, will the city kitty and country mouse be able to make it work?

Betting on Love coverBuy Betting on Love
Land poor, Elly leaves the family farm and heads to the big city to become something better than a waitress in a small-town diner. Though she’s succumbed to economic necessity and the siren song of her one-time lover, Alex, she can’t bear to give up the farm that has been in her family for generations. As much as she wants to, she can’t have everything she desires, and she’ll have to decide what is more important: the past or the future.

Alex has always been a daredevil, up for anything, never tying herself down to anyone. When she falls head over heels for quiet Elly, everyone’s surprised, no one more than her best friend and occasional lover, Will. As things heat up between them, Elly must choose between her past and her future, and Alex is faced with a decision that will shake her to the core of all she holds dear.

New release! The Demon Equilibrium by Cathy Pegau

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! And I’m not just saying that because it’s by my crit partner Cathy Pegau. It’s creepy, intriguing, has lots of action, and some romance all mixed in.

Grace Carter, a “source” of magic, has spent the last nine months searching for Maggie Mulvaney, her “catalyst.” The joy of reuniting with her partner—and her lover—is thwarted by her worst fear: Maggie remembers neither Grace nor their life together in the Order of Saint Teresa, the centuries-old organization that trained them to be the strongest demon-hunting duo in generations.

When Maggie and Grace unexpectedly come face-to-face with the demon Horde, they are forced to team up once again. As they begin to piece their lives back together, they discover that their memories have been masked by someone within the Order. Should the Horde succeed in their plan, those who have committed their lives to slay worldly demons will be relegated to little more than minions as humans are completely enslaved.

Now, Grace and Maggie must sacrifice everything, possibly even their love, and their lives, in an all-out battle to save humanity.

Happy release day to City Kitty & Country Mouse!

Cover for City Kitty & Country MouseI’m delighted that this book of my heart, the sweet yet hot love story between high-flying lawyer Kitty Kerr and artistic organic farmer Lucy Shen is now out in the wild, waiting for you to read. 

This book started with names. Lucy was first, the name coming from the English middle name of my friend Nina. Lucy also has her last name, Shen. It’s a tribute to Nina, one of my best friends, lost too soon. I’d like to think she would have been tickled pink to find out that in another world, she’s part of a tender romance, and is an organic farmer with a kickass talent at welding sculptures from old farm parts. <3

Kitty’s name came second, well, almost third, because I named Lucy’s farm (Country Mouse) first. And then I thought, what might be sweet yet cute but to have a Kitty for the Mouse? (I’m also a big cat person–see my Instagram, lol–seriously, cats for miles.) Then, I needed a bit of opposites attract… and Kitty became a lawyer. Corporate law, at that.

And then, I read the book Chop Suey Nation: The Legion Cafe and Other Stories from Canada’s Chinese Restaurants, by Ann Hui, and dug into some history of Chinese immigrants in Canada, and that’s when the restaurant pop-up idea started to percolate. (It also gave me an excuse to buy more cookbooks and experiment in the kitchen, something I highly recommend!)

So, if you’re in the mood for a tender yet hot romance between an anxious lawyer and a dedicated and hardworking farmer, this is your book. Fortunately, it’s been released on Bold Strokes Books, and it will be released on Amazon, B&N, and other retailers like The Ripped Bodice on February 11th. Take some time with Kitty and Lucy, and find out what they get cooking.

Kitty Kerr is a high-flying lawyer when her career plans are derailed by the luscious blackberries from Lucy Shen’s Country Mouse Farms. Kitty can’t get enough of the fruit, or of Lucy. Suddenly, she’s wanting things she never dared to want—Lucy, and the life on the farm. But how will being an artisan cook/farmer fit with her legal ambitions and city habits?

Between her beautiful farm and her sculpture, Lucy’s life is set. Falling for a big city lawyer is not part of the plan. Even as Kitty helps make her dreams of spotlighting her farm’s produce in restaurants a reality, Lucy’s terrified that she and the farm aren’t enough to keep Kitty interested in love and the simpler things in life.

Pulled in two different directions, will the city kitty and country mouse be able to make it work?

(And many thanks to Tammy Seidick for that gorgeous cover! Doesn’t it make you just want to devour those blackberries?!)

Just released: Vee: Volume 2! Includes a new, previously unpublished story!

Vee Volume 2“Sylvia, my brightest star, my desire. My lust, my soul.

“She was Lia to her co-workers at the bookstore, Sylvia to her mother, who clicked her tongue disapprovingly at her bright blue and hair and her Monroe stud. But to me, she was simply Vee.”

In Alex’s notebooks, the story of Vee unfolds, from their first kiss, their first date, and the moments in between. It’s a May-December romance between a former punk girl gone conservative, and a gamine young woman in combat boots and fishnets, finding each other on the streets of New York City.

This is the second volume of a short collection of stories, two of which have appeared in anthologies, and others on my website. The short “White Dress” is brand new and previously unreleased.
