From the Author

Welcome to my library!

Here you will find my full list of published works, their descriptions and genres, and where to read them. My ever-expanding shelf holds a blend of horror, steamy romance, urban fantasy, lgbtq+ fiction, paranormal, and more in ebook, paperback, PDF, and web serial formats. I am extremely passionate about the writing craft and will never use AI to write my books or make my covers. Everything you read here is me, chaos and all.

I started writing online in 2010 as a teen with a dream and owe much of my success to my lovely web readers. Because of this, I still keep a decent chunk of my writing available free. I also know that every reader's situation is different, and sites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Bookshop where much of my paid work is available aren't accessible or feasible globally. I offer unlimited review copies of all my published books through the form below, as well as the occasional ARC! 

Some books on my shelf contain 18+ material and will not be suited for younger audiences. Prevalent content warnings are listed in the preface of each of book and on the full sales descriptions. Read at your own discretion, and enjoy the ride!

His Unexpected: A Demon Romance Trilogy

COMING MARCH 30, 2023! 

Blaise Aoide thought she understood the world better than most. Born into a thriving criminal empire and raised in her father’s mafia mansion, she was certain she’d seen it all. But when a prominent member of the international crime syndicate, the Decagon, shows up in her home, rumors follow— rumors that notorious billionaire and supermodel Ash Augustine might be a demon. In the blink of an eye, Blaise’s father trades her to Ash for a seat at the table, and she must face new and terrifying knowledge as she’s thrown headfirst into the spotlight. 

Beneath the world she knew lies the paranormal, and she herself might be far more than human.

Ash Augustine isn't only one of the richest, most powerful men on the planet. Underneath his model exterior lies a secret— a dark secret that’s kept his family brewery flourishing for centuries. But both he and the beast inhabiting his soul find themselves caught off guard when a lesser mob boss presents his unruly daughter as the token in a trade. Now, Ash must confront not only the woman living in his home, but the implications of falling in love with a mortal while sharing a body with the damned. As Blaise becomes an unexpected partner in crime amidst a whirlwind of fashion shows and mafia gatherings, Ash wonders if he’ll have the strength to protect her from himself. 

A plot to undermine the Decagon brews behind velvet curtains, and as acting head of the table, Ash must find a way to stop the usurpation, and secure himself as permanent leader of the syndicate. 

His Unexpected: A Demon Romance Trilogy is a cozy, dark, paranormal romance saga following half-demon Ash and his empath assistant, Blaise. It takes heavier themes from mafia and supernatural horror and overlays them with a soft, simmering romance. The Unexpected Series blends high fashion and organized crime with the supernatural, and follows a slow-burn to scorching relationship through each glitzy encounter. 

This compilation contains books 1–3: His Unexpected, His Unwavering, and His Forevermore.

His Forevermore (Book 3 in the Unexpected Series)

COMING MARCH 30, 2023! 

Blaise Aoide wants nothing more than to relax after a hellish month of fashion shows and mafia gatherings, but rest is nowhere in sight. With Ash’s position as acting head of the Decagon challenged and only five weeks to go before the election, the two of them have a full schedule ahead. Even through constant turmoil, Blaise’s feelings for Ash grow into a beast she can’t ignore. When his demon starts visiting her in increasingly charged visions, she realizes that Ash’s restraint is an illusion, one she fully intends to shatter.

Ash Augustine is unbreakable. His demon ensures that both he and his family business are effectively immortal, and even the looming Decagon challenge can’t touch his iron confidence. But the longer he stays away from Blaise Aoide, the powerful and stunning empath living in his home, the more he begins to doubt his decision to put distance between them. His desire to protect her from the world wars with his visceral need to make her his in every way, and each day by her side becomes a test of self-control. With each slip-up, each intense kiss shared under a cloak of darkness, and every stolen touch, Ash’s determination to keep Blaise at arm’s length dwindles until breaking is the only thing on his mind.

The criminal underworld is shifting, and Ash and Blaise must solidify their position within the Decagon before it all crumbles to sand. 

His Forevermore is book 3 in a new adult, paranormal, cozy, dark romance series, and will contain situations not suited for all readers. Frequent cursing, sexual content, horror elements, and organized crime will be included in the story. Read at your own discretion, and enjoy the ride.

Vietato (Rough Love Novels Standalone)

"Who are you?" I asked when I caught her, grabbing hold of her arms and trapping them at her sides. Violet's cheeks were flushed from exertion, and her eyes twinkled with mischief as she wiggled a hand free and reached into my coat pocket. She withdrew the key, unlocked the door behind her, and tugged me into the suite.


"Come find out."

Vitale Fierro, a mafia Capo in the height of his career, finds himself thrown off balance when a sporadic, Christmas Eve hookup with a fiery art student leads to unexpected feelings. Violet accepts his criminal status in stride, but there's one problem; the two of them come from different worlds, and marrying outsiders is forbidden by mafia law.

His Unwavering (Book 2 in the Unexpected Series)

A month after she’s traded to Ash Augustine, the half-demon leader of the Decagon, Blaise is finally starting to settle into her new life. She has her own job, her own space, and a birthday fast approaching. It’s almost enough to forget she works for the leader of an international crime syndicate. But even that’s seeming less and less daunting as her trust in Ash grows, and with it her powerful new feelings for him.


Ash thought he had everything under control— he landed a seat at the head of the Decagon, launched his family business to new levels of success, and gained an unexpected empath assistant along the way. But the facade begins to slip when he realizes he may have more enemies than friends at the table, and danger approaches them at every turn. Through the whirlwind of fashion shows and syndicate meetings, Blaise Aoide exists as a refreshing constant, and even as he battles his demon half to maintain composure, he worries he won’t have the strength to stay away from her for long.


Lines are blurred when dealing with the damned, and Blaise seems determined to step all over them.
