Come outside, Red. Your chariot awaits.

The text pops up on my phone the next morning.

Me: I’m not even ready. I’ll catch the train.

Jonathan: I’ll wait.

Getting out of bed, I tell myself to take my time, to make him wait because it’s kind of stalkerish that he’s here anyway. Maybe if I take too long, he’ll leave…

He doesn’t. And trying to get ready slow doesn’t work either. I’m ready and out the door a good ten minutes before I usually am.

“Are you watching my house?” I ask, leaning through the window of his white Mercedes sedan to talk to him.

“There’s a possibility that I hired security to keep an eye on your house while you were gone. And it’s likely that said security saw your car in the driveway and let me know about it.”

“So you’re paying someone else to stalk me? That’s just lazy.”

He shrugs. “I’ve got too much money for my own good.” Flashing me that million-dollar smile of his, he leans across the car and pushes the door open for me. “Get in. I’m driving you to work.”

“Don’t you have a job of your own to do or something?” I ask, as I slide into the plush leather seat and buckle myself in.

“I’m in between roles right now,” he explains as he does a U-turn in front of my house and aims his car toward the city. “So, really, I’m all yours.”

“That’s very comforting,” I deadpan.

“Isn’t it?” he grins, teasing me and loving every moment of it.

“You know, being woken up to a text from you is becoming quite a common occurrence.” I say after a while.

“What can I say? I think about you a lot, and when I think about you, I want to talk to you. But, I settle for texting because I don’t want to be a huge pain in your arse.” He explains.

“You are a huge pain in my arse,” I state flipping down the sun visor to check my appearance in the tiny mirror.

“Well, just imagine what a pain it would be if I called you every time I thought about you instead holding back and only texting when I really have to. So really, I’m doing you a favour here.”

I run my fingers under my eyes making sure my make-up is blended properly as I smile at his answer.

“You look fine. Relax,” he says, glancing at me quickly.

“I am relaxed,” I counter. “I was just checking I got my make-up on properly because someone rushed me this morning.”

He glances at me again. “I would have waited for you all day if I had to,” he states letting a beat of time pass before changing the subject. “So, what was really in that box?”

“Ah, now I get why you showed up this morning.”

“What? Friends are allowed to be interested in the things other friends get off their boyfriends.”

“He’s not my boyfriend. We’re just seeing each other. And you and I don’t quite fit in the friend category yet.”

“Really? Well, this is awkward…” He pulls down his bottom lip in this crooked way that makes me laugh at his silliness.

“You’re incorrigible. But if you must know, the box contained a cupcake.”

“A cupcake,” he repeats. “And did you like the cupcake?”

“I did,” I state.

“So that’s what the girls go for these days, cupcakes?”

“Well, it worked well for me.”

“Cupcakes and not flowers?”

“Flowers work too.”

“Just not when they’re from me?”

“Well, it is a little odd getting flowers from your friends when you aren’t sick, and it isn’t your birthday.”

“I thought we weren’t friends.”

“I don’t know what we are, Jonathan. Let’s not try too hard, or put a label on it. I’m obviously not going to get rid of you. So, let’s just… be two people, hanging out, ignoring all the shit of the world without pushing for some kind of relationship–friendship or otherwise. Do you think you can do that?” I ask, as he turns the corner and double parks to let me out in front of my work.

“Yeah, I can do that,” he says as I open the door to quickly get out so he doesn’t get a parking ticket. “I’ll see you at lunch.”

A driver hits the horn behind us, and I hold up one finger to say we won’t be long as I lean back in. “What?”

“I’ll be in the city all day. So I’ll meet you for lunch. It’s what friends do, Red. Get used to it.” He reaches across the car and gives me a wink as he pulls the door shut and takes off, leaving me a little dumbfounded as I step back from street to let the traffic go past.

The man from the car behind flips me off and yells at me to get off the fucking road. It snaps me out of the weirdness that Jonathan seems to evoke and I return the sentiment before heading into my office building to start work and try to ignore the clock as time creeps toward lunch.

Beautiful Star Synopsis:

Star Small to shareWhen Jonathan decided to help Lisa, he was trying to atone in some way for his past sins. He certainly wasn’t expecting to be pulled into a night full of hiding out from the press with a journalist called Sandra Haegen, and almost being choked to death by a rockstar in love with his ex.

When Sandra decided to help Lisa by feeding Perry, she was just trying to be a good person. She also wasn’t expecting to spend the night hiding from the press. Even more so, she wasn’t expecting to spend the night with one of Australia’s hottest young actors, Jonathan Masters. She also wasn’t expecting to save his life.

And that’s just the beginning.

From there, these two must find a way live with the past and look to the future – no matter what the personal cost.

Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the mis-fire.

I was born in Cardiff, South Wales although I left to study law at the University of Bristol, England. Four weeks before graduation I fell in love, and stayed. Ten years later I convinced my crazy, wonderful fire fighter husband to move back to Cardiff with me where we live with our two equally crazy sons. Juggling work, writing and family doesn’t leave a lot of time, but curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a bar of chocolate for family movie night is definitely the best part of my week. “The Hurricane” is my debut New Adult Novel.

Release Day – WHEN ASH FALLS by Rachel Van Dyken

in laws death. After a failed suicide attempt, he’s dedicated his life to bring
justice to the weak making it his personal vendetta to be the death dealer to
the wicked, also known as The Grimm Reaper. He denies himself lusts of the

woman hell bent on making him forget all his reasons for denying himself the
one thing he’s always craved—love.

After rescuing the fair damsel, he thinks his job finished, that is until he discovers he’s to be
the Princess’s escort throughout London until she’s safely married. It wouldn’t
be such a hardship, except the Princess has made him an offer he can’t refuse.

then they’ll go their separate ways. But things aren’t always what they seem,
and when rescuing a damsel, or making a deal with her, one must always be
prepared for the consequences.

Seven Royal Guard, a Beast, a kingdom in chaos, and a girl as pure as the driven snow…Will they
find their Happily Ever After?



Ash didn’t want to remember her this way. Her beautiful face, so often lit with a breathtaking smile, was now cold and dead.
The first time he’d seen her, he had thought she was an angel, and he’d said that very thing under his breath when she had made her debut that season…
“Beautiful,” he murmured as Lucy took a turn about the room, gaining introductions to all the available gentlemen who came her way. Taking an earth-shattering breath, the kind that every man took when he was about to approach a beautiful woman, he made his way over to her.
Music faded into the background with each step. All Ash was aware of was the clicking of his boot against the floor as he progressed toward the beauty. One dance… if only she would give him one dance, he would secure her hand forever. He knew it in his heart, in his soul. She was meant to be his.
Heart beating out of his chest, he could barely contain his excitement as she lifted her eyes and met his gaze. Blue eyes twinkled in his direction, and then she lifted her hand in a wave. A wave? Something was wrong. Ash paused and then glanced self-consciously over his shoulder. There was no one but him, and then he gazed back at her. She crooked her finger, beckoning him forward.
Completely under her spell, he couldn’t deny her any more than he could cease from taking his next breath. Finally, he stood before her, at least a foot taller than she.
“Where have you been, you rogue?” She swatted him on the arm and gave him a coy laugh. “I have been looking everywhere for you!”
“For me?” Ash questioned. “Are you certain we have met?”
“Must you always joke at such serious times?” The girl laughed again, and he was caught at the sight of her dimples as they danced along her cheeks. Carefree. She appeared so carefree, so perfect, un-weighted by the things of this world, by the responsibility and darkness, by disappointment. He tilted his head and then reached out to touch her — perhaps she truly was a dream. And then a voice broke out into the pounding in his ears.
“Ah, sweetheart, you’ve met my brother.” Hunter stepped beside the girl and wrapped his arm around her.
Ash stepped back, his heart sinking down to his feet. She hadn’t been looking for him at all, but his older brother, his twin, the duke. It was such a sad joke, a sad existence really. Would he ever be first in anything?
Months had progressed into a year as he’d watched his brother and Lucy fall into such a deep love all he had been able to do was be happy for them and try to spend as much time away as possible. After all, it was not done to want your brother’s wife, to want to care for her and protect her. It was fate’s final, cruel trick to allow Ash to feel something for another and then have that person ripped away by his brother. Though he loved his brother more than his own life, it seemed Ash was always left with nothing while his brother was given everything.
His name fit.
For he was the ash after the fire of Hunter burned out.
He was nothing but soot, darkness, and sand. One day, his ashes would trickle away into the wind, never to be remembered and never mourned, but forgotten.
“Ash! Do you hear me! I love you! I love you!” Hunter yelled at his brother as he shook his shoulders, and then his eyes widened with desperation as slapped him across the face.
Ash stared at the blood staining his hands. He tried to wipe it off. Tried but failed as it continued to drip down his wrists into his jacket. “I’m so sorry,” he kept repeating over and over again, but it did not matter.
The carriage had come too fast. Lucy had thought Ash was Hunter and had run to him right into the street.
The fault was his.
He knew it, Hunter knew it, and Lucy, beautiful Lucy, his brother’s innocent wife was dead, and it was all because he had lied about who he was, tried to be better than just the second son.
He backed away, slowly at first, and then he ran.
His feet ached, his stomach heaved, and finally he stopped in the middle of the street, hoping, praying that someone or something would hit him. Death, it seemed, was his only option; it was his wish, his choice. For how could he live with himself after what he had done?
Hunter had loved Lucy, but so had Ash. She was his everything, his only relative other than Hunter, and although he had wanted her for himself, he had pushed those emotions so far beneath the surface of his heart that he hadn’t understood how far the love had run until now, until it was too late.
On legs like lead, he walked until he reached the tombstone of his parents. Both taken from him too soon. What would they think of him now? He was the disappointment in the family, the second son by minutes. And now he was a murderer.
Disgusted with himself, he sat down on the cold grass, leaned his head against the stone, and cursed. His brother — his only living relative — and he had ruined his life and ruined his parents’ memory in the process. All he had ever wanted as a boy was to please his father, yet all he’d received was disapproval. One time — just one time — he wanted to make someone proud, make himself proud.
But it was impossible.
He looked down at bloodstained hands.
His future stared right back at him.
Flee! He needed to flee, to get away. No, not just get away. He needed to die. A life for a life. So he set about doing exactly that. It was not fair that he was able to live, to survive, when the one woman who had done nothing but brought happiness to everyone she’d met, lay dead in the street.
“Lucy,” he whispered as salty tears ran down his cheeks and across his lips. “I’m so sorry… but I will see you soon. I will see you soon.” He reached into his pocket and pulled out the pistol. With shaking hands he lifted it to his chin and pulled the trigger.

The Final Book in The Photographer Trilogy


Untainted (Photographer Trilogy, #3)


The infamous serial killer, known as the Photographer, is gone, but this time he has taken someone with him. Even though everyone finally knows his identity, he is still two steps ahead of them.

Someone is dead. Someone is missing. Kate Jackson is one of those two.

Derrick Kane finds himself teaming up with Annie, Kate’s younger sister, in a desperate search for any clues that could lead them to the answers they need. Little did they realize that they would find a lot more than they had bargained for.

Every dirty secret from the past comes to light, and they are faced with the ultimate test of true love, and true heartbreak.

When an innocent life is on the line, the cost of justice could be more than love can afford.

Not everyone makes it to the end of their love story.

**Please note that there is no cliffhanger at the end of this series and everything is fully wrapped up. This series is loosely based on a true story.

DISCLAIMER: Due to violent and dark subject matter, this book is intended for readers over the age of 18 years old.
