I fell in love with reading when I was introduced to the romance and murder mystery genres in middle school. It was quite natural that when I began my writing career in my twenties that I gravitated to those genres, specifically romance. I am fortunate that all of my romance books were published.
Below is a list and description of each romance book. At this time, my romance books are in conversion to ebook format since they are out of print in hard copy. However, if you just have to see, touch and feel the book while you’re reading (yes, I’m one of those people too), you may find one or all of my romance books on the secondary or used book market. If you find a used copy or purchase the ebook version, I hope you enjoy the read. If you already own a copy, thank you for joining me on a romantic journey.

It didn’t take long for Steven to realize that in Nachelle he had the perfect VP. Her poise and sophistication convinced him she would also make the perfect wife. The trouble was Nachelle insisted on keeping things between them strictly professional. But Steven was determined to succeed in business and in love. How could he have known that Nachelle’s passion would take him beyond his most thrilling fantasies with kisses that tasted of happily-ever-after.
Second Time Around – It was the opportunity Olivia Johnson had waited for: completing her agricultural research project on a fabulous 3,000-acre Alabama farm—and finally earning her Ph.D. So why was she dreading it? Because of all the farms in Tuskegee, this one happened to be owned by the one man Olivia couldn’t bring herself to face—her estranged husband John-Michael…the man she’d left three years before…the man she was afraid to love again. From the moment John-Michael saw Olivia again, a flood of memories returned—making everything seem like yesterday. The joys of their idealistic young love—and the regrets: his consuming devotion to building a farm…and Olivia’s need to pursue her own career. Now here they were, together again, having finally achieved what they’d set out to do. Maybe the time was right to recapture what they’d once shared…to make old dreams new again.
Love Everlasting – Vivacious Heather Chadwick had it all: beauty, a rewarding career, and a NBA player for a boyfriend. Funny thing was, she didn’t care so much.

Deep-down, Heather was ashamed and had made a promise to herself that she would never follow in her mother’s steps—even if it meant standing up superstar fiancé’ Gerald at the altar. Sweet and dependable Gerald was crushed by Heather’s outrageous stunt. And when Heather finally realizes she’s made a very big mistake, she may be too late to fix it. But she is determined to win back the one man who made her happy—and the only one who ever truly loved her.
