After the Dust Settles (Book 3)


I’m not your average seventeen-year-old boy. 

What other teenage boy do you know of, is working alongside their father in a top-secret government agency, and has been since they were fifteen? 
Unheard of? Yes probably. 
After spending years searching for my place in this world, I jumped at the opportunity to help my father. What I didn’t expect was the possibility that our work could flow over and harm our family. 
Yet that’s exactly what happened……. 
I thought I’d found, and then lost the girl who would forever hold my heart – until a sexy ass stranger crossed my path under the Brooklyn Bridge. 
I want this girl, like I’ve never wanted anyone. She makes me feel things that I should feel guilty about, that I shouldn’t be needing as desperately as I do. 
Only there’s a catch …………. She has secrets, ones that could have a devastating impact. 


He was supposed to be a job. 
A target that needed to be eliminated. 
A message that we weren’t a family to mess with. 
When my chance came, I couldn’t do it. There was a presence about him that drew me in. I went from wanting to kill him, to wanting him in my arms.
From that moment on he became my obsession…. 
I’m no good for him, which is why I should stay away from him. I will only destroy him because I’m broken, a girl with a dark past - the daughter of an Italian mobster. Our family is one of the largest in Brooklyn. 
I need to escape my father, and this life. 
I need someone to swoop in and save me, but I’m scared because bad things happen to me – and the people I love.

Coming Home (Book 4)

The day Peyton Jessop walked into my life I was six years old. 

I’d spent that whole summer wondering if anyone would ever move into the creepy old Barkley house next door to me. Just before school started I watched as a van pulled up, and a browned hair little girl clutching a stuffed bear climbed out. 

Peyton was feisty and fun to be around, but her life at home was troubled. That brown haired girl weaved her way into my heart. 

She was supposed to be my ever after. 

Well ……. that was the plan until her mother died, and her father ripped her away from me.

“This book will take you on an emotional roller coaster. It pulls at your heart strings and leaves you falling in love with the characters. This is an excellent read that I couldn't put down. I look forward to reading more books by this author.” – Michelle V, Amazon Review

“Each book in this series just gets better and better. Even though this story was based around Luke and Peyton you still get see each of the beloved character from the previous books. But what is the most amazing part is the twists and the weaving of the characters and the story line at those pinnacle moments that has you gripping your device and holding it close keeping you turning each page until you get to the end and then leaves you in disbelief that the story is over.” – Lisa White, Amazon Review
