Heart's Desire, part of the Unparalleled Love series collaboration I did with Sharon C. Cooper and Stephanie Nicole Norris, was initially released only on Amazon. Now you can get the book at all the other retailers! Links are below. Enjoy!
Coworkers Nathan Crenshaw and Janice Livingston once had a passionate relationship that went up in flames and created a strained environment at their place of employment. Since then, Janice has tried to move on. Unfortunately, they have to work together, and unfortunately, she’s still very attracted to Nathan.
Nathan can’t forget his connection with Janice—a connection he hasn’t experienced with any other woman. After an earth-shattering kiss rekindles their flame, will these two finally get it right— or will an outside force get in the way?

What readers are saying:
I picked this one up last night and couldn't put it down! Janice and Nathan's re-kindled romance has it going on. Their fiery chemistry is a real page-turner. As usual, this experienced author does not disappoint. If you're looking for a switched-on, sexy short read, diving deep on occasion? This one comes highly recommended. Loved it!
Janice realizes she made a mistake letting Nathan go. However, she doesn't know how to let her past hurts go. Nathan secretly still loves Janice, but has moved on. Both of them must find away to move forward. I loved reading about them finding their way back to each other.
I loved the main character Janice. She was untraditional in many ways yet relatable. Nathan was down right sexy with a huge heart and perfect for Janice. I enjoyed the journey of their love story.
My latest release, HEART'S DESIRE is now available! So I'm really excited for you to read this novella. It's a second chance romance and office romance, and dare I say, even a sprinkling of opposites attract. This couple is hot, hot, hot! I love Janice's personality, and Nathan is... well, you know how I write my heroes. He's definitely swoon-worthy.
As a reminder, the book will be released only on Amazon initially. After the 90-day exclusive period has expired, Heart's Desire will be available on other platforms. If you don't want to wait 90 days, you can download the FREE Kindle app to any computer, tablet or phone and read it now.
HEARTS DESIRE TEASER
“And how was your weekend?” He poured a cup of coffee. He drank his with no sugar or cream, one of the many details she remembered from their relationship a few years ago.
“Did you go out?”
“I did. Went to a club and danced the night away. It was fun.”
He slowly nodded. “Still partying hard, huh?”
“Not too hard.” On occasion, she went to a club or lounge to relax on the weekend and unload the stress of the work week.
“I’m sure you had men lined up to be your dance partners.”
“Nothing quite so dramatic,” Janice demurred, though she was pleased by the compliment.
Nathan chuckled, low and sexy, showing off pretty teeth and dimples. She hated that laugh. Not because it annoyed her, but because it was so enticing she longed to hear it over and over again and highlighted the smallest regret that she and Nathan were no longer a couple.
But they were in a good place now, and she had to remember that. Friendly, able to engage in polite conversation and the occasional banter the way they used to before they became romantically involved.
“At least you’re not still wasting your time with boys,” he said, amusement filtering into his eyes.
Janice arched an eyebrow. “Who says I’m wasting my time with boys?”
“I’ve seen the men you date now, remember?” He lowered his voice, arching an eyebrow right back at her.
Janice’s voice also went lower. “Once. One time you saw me on a date with a younger man. That’s not my norm.” Unfortunately, she’d run into Nathan at the movie theater she and her date had gone to.
At thirty-six, she figured she’d try something different, so why not try a younger man? She’d assumed younger men were easier to deal with in relationships, and she wouldn’t have to worry about getting serious because they were in their prime and not looking for anything permanent. Au contraire. Her experiment had been a bust. The first one she dated was too immature and saw her as a bank to borrow money from. The second became attached way too soon, so she’d had to end the relationship before it started.
“You shouldn’t waste time with boys when you could have the benefits of being with a real man.”
“And I suppose you can tell me all about the benefits of being with a real man?” Janice asked sweetly. They were entering dangerous territory.
Nathan locked eyes with her, seemed about to add more, and then shook his head. After a few seconds, he said, “I’m not going there.”
“Say what’s on your mind,” Janice said, her heart rate speeding up a fraction.
“Nah. Not a good idea.” His gaze swept the room as if searching for someone.
“Tell me before I beat it out of you.”
His attention came back to her. For a second, he hesitated, but then he finally whispered, “I can show you all the benefits of being with a real man better than I can tell you. But you already know that.”
They locked eyes again, and her stomach tightened.
Janice swallowed. “You did, but that didn’t work so well, did it?”
“So you say.”
The other two books in the Unparalleled Love series are EVERLASTING LOVE by Stephanie Nicole Norris and SOUL'S DESIRE by Sharon C. Cooper. The books can be read in any order, and paperbacks are already available for all three novellas.
