Mallory Westin was born into power. But when her family’s quest for more power caused her a broken heart, she turned her back on the only life she ever knew. Now a successful owner of a security firm, she’s determined to forge her own path. But sometimes one’s past isn’t so easy to leave behind. Mallory has to take control of the power she was destined for after discovering her politician father is involved in an assassination plot. Things only get worse as the one man she’s always loved becomes a target as well.

Reid Simpson had loved Mallory since they were teenagers. Then one night changed everything as she suddenly broke his heart. For years, he escaped the pain as he built his resort and casino empire. He pushed her from his mind, if not his heart. As Reid encounters increasing danger, he finds that Mallory is the one by his side trying to protect him.

Can Reid and Mallory work together to uncover the assassination plot while avoiding the pain of the past? Or will they discover that love has a way of conquering all?

Fashioned for Power Release

Fashioned for Power Original Cover

Fashioned for Power is now going live around the world.  Pre-orders should be filled around midnight leading into January 19th and everyone should start seeing live links on each retailer shortly after.

Allegra Simpson is the Vice President of Simpson Fashion and she’s always handled life like her mother taught her — with manners and a smile.  But Allegra learns being nice can get you in trouble as someone haunts her from the shadows and turns her life to one of secrets. She fears she’ll never be able to have a relationship with Finn, because it would put everyone she loves in danger.

Finn Williams had a promising professional baseball career until an injury disrupted everything.  But Finn wouldn’t let that stop him.  He went to law school and started his own sports agency with the support of the Simpson family.  The only thing missing was Allegra’s love. The chemistry between the two had been undeniable. But Finn knew there was something that Allegra is holding back from him. He just has to get her to trust him enough to tell him.

The man in the shadows is watching. He’s always watching. He knows Allegra’s every move. He’s been in her house, laid in her bed, and has plans to make her love him. She rejected him, but they are destined for each other. He’s seen her with Finn and knows this new man is no match for him. Soon she’ll come to see they are meant to be. Because if he can’t have her, then no one can.

How You Can Be A Hero

The Nest in Lexington, Kentucky

As many of you know, I am a proud benefactor of charities that help our wonderful animals. You’ve probably seen me post my support for Friends and Vets Helping Pets. However, I also support other organizations that help people dealing with domestic violence, such as Bethany House and Greenhouse 17.

I have brought these matters up numerous times in my books as part of the plot. It was especially poignant in Built for Power. Domestic abuse affects people from every race, sex, and socioeconomic status. Recently, I got a note from a reader who works at The Nest in Lexington, KY. Having been in Lexington, Kentucky for 35 years, I had heard of The Nest but never learned much about them. The reader invited me to come be a story time hero and read to the children under their care. I looked them up and immediately knew it was a great cause to support.

The Nest provides childcare for parents that need to go to work, to school, or appointments to provide for their family. They also offer childcare in case of emergencies. Not only do they provide support to the children, but also to the family as a whole. Their building houses a childcare facility, crisis care center that provides emergency assistance, domestic violence counseling, and relationship recovery workshops for victims of domestic violence, including children who have witnessed or endured abuse in the home. Not to mention, they also provide self-help parenting classes to both mothers and fathers that reach out for assistance.

Two weeks ago, I visited and spent the morning reading to the children at The Nest. What polite and attentive listeners they were! I was so impressed with the level of care they received and how the organization worked as a whole that I wanted to share how you could help as well.

I know many of us want to help in more ways than just writing a check (which is also good and definitely needed!). If you’re in the Lexington area, then I hope you will consider volunteering to sort donations, help clean, or if you’re blessed with the ability to use tools, help with fixing odds and ends. I was also shown a beautiful courtyard that they hope will one day feature a nice mural. I am not artistically inclined with painting, but perhaps you are. Or perhaps your baby has become a toddler and you have leftover, unused baby items. Or if you are a traveler who collects all those shampoos and conditioners from hotels that are sitting in a drawer, those can certainly help. The Nest depends on the generosity of its donors to sustain and build its programming. Here is a list of items that they are always in need of:

  • Diapers
  • Baby wipes
  • Formula
  • Baby toiletries
  • General toiletries
  • Nonperishable food items
  • Office Supplies
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Clorox wipes, cleaning supplies, etc.

Thank you for reading and I hope you visit their website and see how you can help.
