"The life you lead when death is at a short bend around the corner is not for the cautious."
Reegan Barcel, the sole heir to her father's fortune, is a free-spirit who lives without boundaries and responsibilities. When Reegan is given tragic news about her health, she creates a fantasy bucket list of all the erotic (an not so erotic) things she wants to accomplish. She toys with the idea of completing the list with Emile Garcin, the man in her life, but he balks at the chance.
An ominous encounter with an employee of Executive Suites (a company that fulfills adult fantasies) provides her with an attractive alternative that she can't refuse.
As she becomes submersed in the experience provided by Executive Suites, she quickly realizes that what she thought was real, wasn't, and what she wanted, may not have been what she needed.
Reegan's "experience" falls far from what she expected, and even further from reality.
"Sometimes it pays in happiness to be oblivious"
3 months ago, Reegan Barcel signed up with Executive Suites (an adult wish fulfillment company) to have all her erotic fantasies fulfilled. What she received was a whole lot more than she bargained for.
When Reegan's health prevents her from continuing her travels with her enigmatic, gorgeous new husband (and "Experience Creator") Calind Glace, they return to her hometown.
When a "friend" reappears in her life, and Calind inadvertently reveals more about who (or what) he is, Reegan's life hits a terminal spin cycle.
As the secrets about her and the people closest to her are revealed, her erotic fantasy...is about to become a nightmare.
I WRITE THE LOVE STORIES - NOT ROMANCES
Iâve been creating my own little world since I was very young. When I was eight years old, I began to bring those worlds to life with pen and paper.
Although Iâve had a few short hiatuses, writing has been of passion of mine for many years. I've always viewed my writing as a hobby or a purgative process; I never thought to share my very personal works with anyone outside of my family. Now, Iâm taking the plunge and self-publishing my works. Iâm very excited and apprehensive about the opportunity to share my work with people who may enjoy it.
While I write across genres (I find it hard to stick to one genre), I do have an archetype when it comes to the female protagonist â they have to have certain brand of strength and layered personalities. There will often be a lot of darkness and depth to my stories, because I'm intrigued by characters who are thrust into "dark" situations that explore their psyche.
Writing Science Fiction/Fantasy is my first love. If there is one thing for sure, I'm a bit of a misfit when it comes to Romance. I don't feel that I write romances, thus the tagline. I prefer gritty love stories, where the protagonist isn't necessarily the girl next door, or the girl you encounter in everyday life. In other words, I don't tend to write characters who are easy to fall in love with.
The elements that will be common in my stories are: depth, controversy, thought-provoking and complex plots, and misfit characters. If literature that appeals to your senses and pushes your boundaries intrigues you, then I sincerely hope you enjoy the journey.

It’s that time of the year where we celebrate our love for characters of color in romantic fiction in the Color of Love Blog Hop.
When people ask me why I write Interracial Romance, it's sometimes hard for me to answer. I don't look at IR as a 'thing'. Yes, I do understand the nuances of our society where everything that is a somehow considered 'different' or not 'mainstream' are given labels to highlight the variances. The color of my lover's skin was different. Our cultures may have been different, but the feelings of love and passion were not. As a Jamaican American, my culture is always going to be 'different' than my lover if he is not Jamaican, even if we share the same race or luxuriant skin tones. So I write IR because if these relationships are considered such a taboo, then I want the world to see that IR love is just as beautiful and all-encompassing as any other love. If you are new to Interracial Romance, I hope you take a tour of the hop, and see what IR means to these other terrific authors.

An Excerpt from Glitch (Corporate Hitman Vol.1)
“So you think I’ve been looking for you like some lovesick woman with stars in her eyes? Is that what you think of me?”
Shit, she was pissed.
“That’s not what I think of you, but I just wanted to...” he tried to explain but Araceli stopped him with a sharp poke to his chest.
“The only thing I expect from you is your honesty,” she said as she poked him again. “I didn’t come here for some sort of fairytale ending. I came here to find the only man that I have ever connected with in my life. I know what the fuck I need and want. So as long as you’re a man of your word we should be fine,” she finished, attempting to poke him again, but Glitch grabbed her wrist before she did.
Her feisty rant was probably meant to set him straight, but all it did was make him unbelievably aroused. His chest heaved slightly as the intensity of his desire for her made its rounds through his body. The ache in his groin, the hardening of his cock, the urge in his hands to touch her, and the need to taste her with his mouth.
“You know what I do need?” Her voice lowered to a sultry, edgy purr, and she flicked her little pink tongue across her bottom lip as they continued to gaze into each other’s eyes.
“Tell me,” he demanded, his voice hoarse from lust. “Tell me what you need.”
“Take my clothes off. The only thing I need right now is to feel you inside me. That’s one thing that I have expected.” Her voice was full of need as she leaned her body closer to his.
“Fuck your clothes,” Glitch growled as he pulled her roughly against him. She gasped lightly in surprise of his sudden action but sighed deeply when his lips brushed the sensitive flesh of her neck. Firm as steel, his erection taunted her as his hips flexed into her. His fingers dug into her flesh as he bunched her skirt up around her thighs, and she began to understand his meaning. Araceli was glad she decided to dress up for their dinner, forgoing the sweats that were her normal hacker attire. Even though, something told her he would have just ripped them away with the intensity in which he handled her.
“Kiss me,” he commanded.
