Crimes of the Heart

Feinted Love

A gambit for love and a half-baked revenge plot; one hot Seattle summer…


One minute I’m minding my own business enjoying the sunshine, next I’m wearing my iced coffee.

I’m going to teach Tobias Barrington a thing or two; the first: you don’t always get what you want. I have no idea what the second is, I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Falling in love with Tobias is not on my list.


I’ve never forgotten Arnie Ferguson, or the night we had together. When I find him again, I want to get to know him—as more than a friend.

I may come from a wealthy family; but I know better than most that money can’t buy happiness. But brash, socially awkward Arnie Ferguson makes me think happiness is possible when you let your heart choose.

Feinted Love is a first-person, dual POV, following Arnie Ferguson and Tobias Barrington as they do their best to awkwardly fall in love. No cliff hanger, HEA guaranteed. Heat level, 3+.

The Heart Heist

♥”It’s sweet, sad, funny, bright, and full of moments that make you feel all squishy.”♥

When a gorgeous stranger wanders into his life one summer night he knows he’s in trouble; he’s going to break all his rules and probably his heart.

Duff Cleveland knows better than to open himself to love, that’s how you get hurt.

Jacob De Rossi is a family guy; he’s got the house and the picket fence he’s just missing the man.

Something about Jacob has Duff wanting more, but how many just one more time’s can a dedicated hookup artist justify? He can hardly handle the life he’s living, having an actual boyfriend is impossible.

Jacob’s not letting Duff go easily. It’s obvious, to him at least, that Duff needs someone in his corner, and he is the man for the job.

Will Duff admit his heart is safe in Jacob’s hands, or turn his back on the one thing in his life that makes sense?

The Heart Heist is a first-person, dual POV, following Duff Cleveland and Jacob De Rossi as Jacob woos Duff’s reluctant heart. No cliffhanger, HEA guaranteed. Heat level, 4+. Can be read as a standalone but you may enjoy it even more if you read Feinted Heart first.

The Boyfriend Gambit – December 30, 2021

How do you repair a broken heart when you were the one who broke it in the first place?

It’s been four years since Simon broke up with me, but who’s counting? I’m fine these days, thank you very much.

Past me knew I was doing the right thing. Current me thinks a terrible mistake was made and hopes future me can fix it.

The Boyfriend Spree is a first-person dual POV following Charley Hunter and Simon Ellison as Simon attempts to redeem himself. No cliffhanger, HEA guaranteed. Heat level, 4+. Can be read as a standalone but you may enjoy it even more if you read Feinted Heart and The Heart Heist first!.
