Hi, there! First and foremost, HAPPY SPRING everyone!

The last time you heard from me I had just released Devil's Gold, A Black Rose Mystery. As you know, this is a brand new series for me, and with that always comes a bit of apprehension and nerves, but so far, I've been thrilled with the feedback I've received (highlights below). I've just begun outlining Book #4 and am loving this new journey! If you haven't had a chance to pick up Devil's Gold, you can here.

“I cannot wait to read the rest of the series….I think that pretty much says it all!” -The Pursuit of Bookiness

"...smart, full of energetic thrills and chills, it's one of the best novellas I've read in a very long time." -Booked J

“With fast-paced action, steamy romance, a strong female lead, suspenseful twists, and a good dose of mystery, Devil’s Gold is a solid whodunit that will keep you surprised at every turn.” -Siobhan Novelties

“I want MORE! Whether it's Liam and Dix, or Dixie's sisters, or co-workers, or even just more from this author, I don't know, but that is what I want. MORE!” -I Dig Good Books

"...suspenseful and twisty! Can't wait for book #2!" -Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf

"Suspenseful, steamy and a little spooky in the most awesome way!" - Amazon Customer

“Combining a page-turning mystery, a feisty, sarcastic main character, and even a touch of romance, DEVIL'S GOLD proves just how enchanting a novella can be.” -Lauren’s Crammed Bookshelf

"Devil's Gold is an enchanting and sexy murder mystery that I couldn't put down." -Goodreads Member


AND... Hatchet Hollow, Black Rose Mystery Book #2 is now available for pre-order! (Thanks to everyone who helped picked the colors! If you didnt get to particiapte, dont forget to follow me of Facebook.)

After an afternoon of mind-numbingly boring surveillance in the woods, Private Investigator Raven Cane goes for a twilight jog to clear her head, only to discover a gruesome murder in the town’s most notorious cave, Hatchet Hollow. Minutes later, the impossibly handsome Lieutenant Zander Stone arrives at the scene to take over, but Raven has a hard time letting the case go. Why did the killer cut off the victim’s fingers? More importantly, who would do such a thing?

After a failed attempt at tracking down the elusive Marden Balik, aka, the legendary witch of the Great Shadow Mountains, Zander dives headfirst into Devil’s Den’s most recent murder, only to uncover twists and turns at every step—including a secret book of curses that may, or may not, exist. As the list of suspects grows, Zander does his best to keep Raven at arm’s length. But Raven is persistent, nosing her way into his case, making it increasingly difficult to keep his concentration on the task at hand, and off of her sultry body.

And when another woman is found brutally murdered, Zander worries that Raven has gotten too close to the investigation… close enough to put her directly in the killer’s sights.


Lastly, I've got a few little Black Rose surprises coming soon... stay tuned!

Until next time...

Devil's Gold - eBook small.jpg

 Death and Darkness are the norm at Black Rose Investigations . . .
 
Despite being chronically late, occasionally disheveled and a tad disorganized, Dixie Knight is one of the top private investigators in the country, and when a young woman goes missing in the small, Southern town of Devil’s Den, Dixie takes the case. She expected it to be another ordinary missing person case—until it takes a brutal turn.
 
While visiting relatives on his two-week leave, Marine Liam Cash bumps into Dixie at the local bar, and his attraction to her is immediate. When he becomes suspicious that Dixie’s current case is connected to two unsolved murders in his hometown, he steps in to help investigate, and keep Dixie safe, whether Dixie wants him to or not.
 
As the bodies start stacking up, Dixie turns the town upside down looking for the killer—could it be the rumored witch that lives in the mountains; the rich, neurotic doctor’s wife; or the perky, blonde receptionist at the local medical clinic? 
 
Time is running out, and Dixie knows she has to put the pieces of the puzzle together before another body turns cold in Devil’s Den.

Labeled a workaholic by his FBI comrades, Ethan Veech agrees to take a break from work and travel to the sleepy, southern town of Berry Springs, with nothing on his agenda but relaxation and drinks at the local bar. But, before he can even say “Another round, please,” a mysterious pair of human bones, a vicious murder, and a sexy criminal crashes his perfect plans.

A product of her harsh upbringing, Jolene Reeves doesn’t exactly live by the law, and makes no apologies for it, until her life is thrown into the spotlight when she stumbles upon a dead body in the bathroom of the Berry Springs B&B. After Ethan discovers Jolene’s true identity, he threatens to expose her past unless she helps him bring down the focus of his current case; the reclusive millionaire Slade Packer.

As their shaky alliance becomes clouded by their sizzling chemistry, another victim is brutally murdered and it isn’t long until Ethan discovers that Jolene is next on the killer's list.

And the clock to save her life is ticking . . .
