Fairy Tales Release: Snow White!

Welcome To

BB Logo jpg version

Have you read Roxanne St. Claire’s Barefoot Bay series? I’m so excited to take part in a fabulous program call Kindle Worlds. It’s where I write a book set in another author’s world! That means I got to frolic through Roxanne’s white shores of Barefoot Bay for my next release to give a taste of my all new series!

I’m so pleased to say As White As Sand is now available!


snow white retold tall


When Sophia White’s wicked stepmother attempts to nab complete control of Kingdom Cosmetics with trickery, Sophia flees the downtown Manhattan apartment for the shores of Barefoot Bay until she can have an opportunity to take her deceased parents’ company back. There she winds up with seven adorable pets and the idea to start a pet spa at the local upscale resort, The Casa Blanca.

While Sophia made her escape, she isn’t forgotten. Her stepmother seethes in her penthouse apartment and plots for control of Kingdom Cosmetics. Waiting until the time is right, she sends a man as her poisoned apple to do her bidding.

Peirce Chase may be treated like a huntsman, but he’s not going to (metaphorically) stab Sophia in the heart. He loves her too much. But Peirce can’t just walk away. The evil wannabe queen has blackmailed him into working for her. If he can’t convince Sophia to sign over her shares of the company, he’s off to jail for a murder he didn’t commit.

Falling into an idyllic romance at the beach wasn’t in either of their plans and it may be the thing that shatters them both.

AS WHITE AS SAND is a retelling of the classic Snow White fairy tale set in a small town contemporary romance atmosphere.

NEW from ME!

So excited to say Exes And Emotions, Turtle Pine 3 is in the wild! A print version is coming soon! I’m waiting on a couple things to happen before I can release it. If print is your jam, I am so very sorry, but it is coming! A link for Barnes And Noble is also coming. I’ve been sitting on this post all day waiting on B&N to post it live in their store, but so far they haven’t.

ExesAndEmotions-AmazonAmazon B&N | iBookstore Kobo | GooglePlay Scribd

Because there are always two sides to every story…

High school sweethearts became broken hearts when Reed Ingalls and Tina Violet rip apart at the seams. All grown up and years later, a project for the local school forces them back together.

Neither wants to be there, but as the air is cleared on their past, they find that old familiar chemistry drawing them close. Sliding into their old rhythm shines light on their previous problems.

Reed wants answers and Tina would rather keep the lid tight on her shameful secrets. To mend their hearts, these exes will have to listen to their emotions if they want to find happiness.

Backdrops may not be the only thing getting a touch of glue in this third installment of the Turtle Pine Series.


Hope you enjoy this addition to Turtle Pine!!

“A romance that made feel all warm and fuzzy.”

title quote from Book Gannet’s review

If you’re on the hunt for a serious, meaty romance—THEN STOP READING HERE. Cupcakes And Crushes is as light and fun as the title. A comfort read, a palate cleanser. You like Hallmark movies? This is the book for you!!

CupcakesAndCrushes300Sometimes there is enough sweet to make up for the bitter.

Turtle Pine, Book 1

Years ago, a broken heart sent Annie Cookie running from home, and she’s never looked back—until now. Her grandpa’s broken wrist means the family bakery is at risk of losing two big orders.

Reluctantly, Annie returns to Turtle Pine to help out, only to discover it’s not just seven hundred cupcakes she has to bake, but also a wedding cake for the half-sister who stole her high-school sweetheart. Annie left town to get away from her sister. No way is she getting mixed up with her again. Once the cupcakes are done, she’s outta there.

Back in high school, Cade Revlin hid his crush on his brother’s girl, but when his brother dumped Annie for another Cookie sister, Annie slipped through his fingers and out of town. Now that she’s back, he’s determined to give her a reason to stay.

He’s got one week to change her mind. Or she’ll be gone in a cloud of powdered sugar.

Warning: Contains small-town meddling, family drama and all the necessary ingredients for a second chance at love—if they have the guts to turn up the heat.

Oh, dear heavens, Turtle Pine, Alabama. Home of the fierce Snapping Turtles. Their biggest claim to fame was consecutively winning the AA basketball state tournament for ten years straight.

Get. Me. Out. Of. Here.

The only reason Annie wasn’t breathing in a paper bag while waiting for her suitcase to come around the baggage carousel, was because she knew she was only sticking around long enough to do a favor. Then it was back to the highly acclaimed bakery she worked at, where the booking for weddings was currently eighteen months in advance.

Step one of getting out of Turtle Pine the fastest was finding her ride to her grandparents’ house. There was no tall, slender woman with an eye out for a hot date impatiently waiting for her. Not that Annie was shocked, but she had hoped for once her half-sister Tina would have something together besides her shirt matching her shoes.

Annie aimed her phone away from the sunlight pouring in through the glass front windows of Turtle Pine’s regional airport. She scrolled through her contacts in a game of eeny, meeny, miny, moe in hopes of finding a ride from the airport to her grandparents. Her grandma didn’t drive anymore, and Grandpa was uncomfortable going much farther than the grocery store with his broken wrist. Annie had two other half-sisters she could choose from, but she was only fine with calling one of them. Sadly, that sister didn’t live in Turtle Pine. Out of four sisters, Mary was the only one who hadn’t been raised by their grandparents.

Contact list it was. A total introvert who’d been gone from town for years? Annie sighed and scrolled some more. As if there wasn’t enough fun packed into coming back home, it was surely about to get even more so. She shielded the screen with a magazine and attempted to tilt it a little more to choose from slim pickings when the shadow of a man moved over her.

“Annie?” The shadow belonged to a tall man who appeared to have shopped at Camouflage, Mud and More. His brow lifted a touch as his head tipped to the side. “Annie Cookie?”

That was her. Now who was he and—wow. She rubbed a hand under her nose to get a refreshing whiff of her hand lotion. He must be three days late for a shower. Once upon a time, you could have found her looking and smelling like that. She would have been making one of those goofy in-love grins through every last minute of it. The very thought of it flipped her stomach. She couldn’t pin down if it was butterflies or nausea. They were simultaneously good and bad memories. “That’s me.”

His smile broadened. “You’ve changed since high school. I would give you a hug, but I’m so nasty.”

He extended a grimy hand her way. There was something about his face that was vaguely, sort of familiar. By his greeting, she was one hundred percent sure she was supposed to recognize him. But her mind was all blank. Fake smile it was as she accepted his hand. Dear, God, please let her put a name to his face soon. …continued on Cupcakes And Crushes page

Welcome To Chester Farms!

Excerpt | Reviews

At eighteen, Kara Duncan had already made her fair share of mistakes, choosing the wrong boy and earning herself a bad reputation in the process. Hurt and humiliated, she’d packed up and moved on, sure that everyone in Bella Warren, Arkansas, would be better off without her. She’d planned never to return, but when crisis strikes, she has nowhere else to turn.

After seven years, Wade Chester thought his feelings for Kara were finally ancient history. Until he sees her again, standing on his front porch just as she’d done a million times before. She needs his help—and his family’s crops—if her canning business is going to survive. The rest of his family has let bygones be bygones, so why is it so hard for him to let go of the past?

While Kara claims to be interested only in putting things right, the old heat flaring between them is undeniable. But Wade will need to risk his heart—and the reputation of his farm—to prove that they’re meant to be together.
