What if vampires were a superior species and nearly undetectable? As successful, influential individuals, vampires live under a strict set of rules created by their government, The Cardinalis Order. Are you ready to understand what it means to break The Cardinalis Code?

When successful business entrepreneur Michael Chamberlain arrives in The Hamptons to take over his father’s nightclub, he’s in search of a new donateur, a contracted blood source. Troubled and distant, Michael discovers he’s still very much alive when enticed by a beautiful woman, offering a kiss and a question: Can you be mine for five minutes?

Student Paislee Sullivan serves at the prestigious nightclub to pay her tuition. When she meets the mysterious Michael Chamberlain, who she believes to be just a gorgeous bartender with an attitude, she soon discovers her world is ruled by a species not of her own.
Wealth and glamour shroud a dark side that threatens her life when she signs Michael’s contract. In this steamy romance, two lovers wield a charming relationship that will be destroyed by the Order if she breaks just one rule.

Avery grew up in a military family and traveled extensively. Fortunately, her books could travel anywhere with her. She adored romances as a teen and read whatever ones she could get her hands on. When she was sixteen, she decided to create her own love story, inspired by all the authors she’d been reading. She discovered her passion for writing and continued building her craft throughout the years while traveling as a military wife. Avery finally settled in a small town in Maine and decided to actively pursue her dream of becoming a published author, to share her stories with others in hopes they would love them as much as she did.

She’s served tables, worked drive-thru, modeled, attended AIMT in Kailua to learn massage therapy and energy work, even owned her own shop, making candles, soap, and other natural beauty products. She’s dabbled in a variety of things, but her love for a good romance never wavered. 

Avery’s usually hanging out with her family, drinking coffee, and listening to music. If you don’t find her there, she’s staring out the window, swept up in another world. Avery feels strongly that every romantic journey she creates should have elements of adventure, sweet banter, danger, tension, gripping content —and of course, all that steamy romance! Her desire is to bring the reader along for a wild ride that leaves them breathless.

Once the line is crossed, every penalty is major.

Dalek “Taz” Tazandlakova is the epitome of a hockey player—tall, broad, and powerful. As a forward for the Lafayette Ice Water Moccasins, he’s also the physical embodiment of domination and intimidation. 

He’s everything Liam Jolivet isn’t.

Liam possesses an inner strength and confidence Taz has never mastered. On the surface, Liam appears to be a perfect match for Taz. The problem is, Liam is dating Taz’s roommate. It’s not the only problem, either. Taz is a “playa” and has commitment issues—along with a pain-in-the-ass coach who’s threatening to ruin his career, and a second roommate who wants to dictate his social life for his own personal gain. 

Nevertheless, Taz wants Liam, and Liam appears to want to reciprocate. Do they dare cross the line?

Available now!


With his jacket draped across his arm, Liam crossed the living room with slow, measured steps and barely making a sound. In the two years Taz had lived there, he’d yet to master crossing the room without the wood floor squeaking. He wondered how long it had taken Liam.
“Sneaking out?” Taz asked.
Liam jumped but quickly composed himself. He pivoted to the couch in the dark room, Taz’s silhouette barely visible. “Hey, I didn’t see you there.”
“Not surprising. You looked focused on the door and a speedy escape.” Taz clicked on a lamp.
Liam’s cheeks reddened, and his nose scrunched in an adorable way. “Yeah, well… I wasn’t sneaking, though.”
“Vic’s asleep?”
“Yeah.”
“Did you wake him to tell him you were leaving?”
“No need.”
“And you were quiet getting out of bed, crossing the floor, and shutting his door.”
Liam nodded.
“Then, you’re sneaking.”

The man turned and looked at the wide front porch where my kids were holding the welcome wagon. Just my luck to have them squabbling loudly when our new neighbor was moving in.
As we moved to the driveway, I noticed he was a large man, broad and solid. I wore mom jeans with elastic at the waist, sneakers, and an oversized hoodie with a picture of our school mascot peeling from age. My hair was scraped back in its usual ponytail, and any scrap of makeup I had on from earlier today had worn off hours ago.
Please don’t be handsome too. Please don’t be handsome too, I prayed. It would be more of my luck to have a real hottie move in when I looked every bit of my age.
“I blocked you in, didn’t I?” His voice was deep and slightly accented with something European. Irish maybe? Ya ain’t from around here, are ya? floated through my mind in a deep Southern twang.
“Um… yeah. We were just leaving for the football game, and you’re makin’ us late,” Mattie told him. Not a shy bone in that kid’s body.
“Mattie, don’t be rude.”
The man didn’t seem to mind my son’s bold statement. “Sorry about that, lad. I didn’t realize you were leaving. Get on in your car there, and I’ll move my truck for you, yeah?”
As I got closer, his dark hair came into view. The lower half of his face sported a short beard of the same color. He wasn’t classically handsome, but he certainly wasn’t bad to look at either. His bright green eyes had small lines that radiated from them, making him around my age. He was definitely rugged, and his tanned skin made me think he worked outdoors a lot.
“Oy! Owen! Back out! These people have somewhere to be!” The man’s powerful yell made me jump.
The moving van jerked once as it reversed and backed into the street.
The man turned back to us. “I’ll park my truck on the street tonight, and we’ll figure out how to make it work later. Fair?”
“That’s very fair, Mister…?” I hedged.
“MacAteer. The name’s Connor MacAteer.” He held out a giant paw. Lord, the man was a bear!



I’ve had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I’m a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it’s only fitting I should write a few myself!  

I’ve spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn’t mean I’m pigeon-holed into one mold.  I’ve been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring.  As one of my students said to me once, “Life’s too short to ignore the opportunities.”   I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world.  I hope you enjoy it!

Catch up with Kirkby residents Scott and Davis as they navigate through the ups and downs of fatherhood, relationships, and juggling… balls.

In two years, it’s clear love can last, just as it can grow.

Davis’s business remains successful, Scott’s clinic is going strong, and Libby is happy and content.

But that doesn’t mean real life is always perfect, nor does it mean fatherhood isn’t as exhausting as it is wonderful.

Needing a break from their daily routines, Davis and Scott head away for a weekend of uninhibited fun. With lots of laughter and dancing, Davis has never seen Scott so relaxed and comfortable in public.

And he’s not quite sure how to handle that.

Worried that life in Kirkby is holding Scott back, Davis nearly makes the biggest mistake of his life.

But Scott has other ideas. He doesn’t need saving. What he needs is his man to step up and fight for their family and their future.

And he has just the plan to do it.

A True-Blue novella. I’ve Got You MUST be read prior to reading this story.
