We’re both addicted to sex, just not with each other.

High school friends – nothing more.

That was our promise to each other, because let’s face it, infidelity spreads like a disease.

Everybody cheats.

Period.

And it’s easier to remain friends than hurt the only person you ever cared about – or so we thought.

Excerpt: Chapter 1

“What the hell is that?” The new patient in the ER had an erection almost the size of a man’s arm. It tented the sheet covering him, and I thanked my lucky stars that I wasn’t on the front lines in the triage area. I could still hear the giggles from behind a curtain.

“This one’s yours, Jules. I’m not touching that with a ten-foot pole.” My co-worker and best friend’s humor didn’t escape me. The two of us were working the graveyard shift, and from the look of it, Chris was not going to help. In fact, bringing all the nurses’ attention to the patient may have only hindered any progress. Fortunately, she decided to leave. “I’m pretty sure I have a patient who needs an enema. I think I’d rather work that end than the one you’ll be working on.”

I highly doubted that. Chris worked the male nurses better than strippers did metal poles.

“Everybody out!” I pointed my finger to the door, but no one moved. Their heads were peeking one over another, trying to catch a glimpse of the patient’s prominent injury. My mind was already running amok as I wondered what the heck was underneath that sheet. “This is not Grey’s Anatomy, people, so unless you’re helping I don’t want to see you.”

They finally scattered back to their duties. On Saturday nights, or should I say Sunday mornings, we usually got the weekend party leftovers, and most of our patients were passed out drunk, stoned, or heavily medicated. Comprehension in any of those states was minimal. This guy on the bed in front of me was totally out. His face was covered in paint – green, red, yellow, blue, you name it and it was there. What kind of a party had he gone to?

I peeled back the sheets with hesitation. The rest of his body was painted in the same mix of colors as his face. My gaze rested over his hip, where underneath the smeared paint I could make out the black lines of a tattoo, though its shape remained mysterious. I wondered whether the patient had any clothes on when he came in. I sighed and removed the sheet down to his knees. The nurse beside me had her mouth completely open and was focused on what first appeared to be a cannon – a huge cannon made of a cylinder that imprisoned the patient’s enlarged penis.

“Holy crap!” I said under my breath. How do you get your cock stuck in a pump?

What happens when a stranger takes everything from you in the blink of an eye? When your life goes from perfection to hell and you aren’t sure if you want to climb out of the hole you’re in or dig down deeper?
Events from Traxx Maxwell’s past prevent him from getting into serious relationships and he likes it that way. One unexpected day, hell breaks loose. “The Incident” happens. Traxx is forced to watch something that no one should ever see. He starts to fall into a person that no one recognizes. There is darkness moving within him – he is broken inside.
While she’s waiting for Traxx to quit his slutty ways and really notice her, Ciara Collins is dating other guys and having fun. One unexpected day “The Incident” takes over Traxx’s life. While he tries to push everyone away, Ciara refuses to retreat. Can she help him put his fractured life back together or will he have to remain this shattered shell, completely dismantled?
And just when life seems somewhat bearable, the creepers who have been quietly observing and enjoying Traxx’s suffering, have decided to take everything away from him – once and for all.
This is a story about how the unexpected can make someone’s life fall into pieces, and how unconditional love and friendship can help those who are dismantled become whole again.

Barbara lives in constant fear of her husband. She finally summons the courage to leave with their young daughter, Allie, but dreads the moment her husband learns of their escape. In his desire to control them and bend them to his will, he will leave no stone unturned to punish them–especially Barbara.
Grey’s future seems bleak, especially the day he is fired, but everything begins to turn around the moment he absently sinks down on a bench occupied by wealthy Gloria Withers. Gloria sees something in him that no one else bothers to notice and, within moments, a friendship is sparked that will withstand many trials.
When Barbara makes good her escape and arrives on the doorstep of her grandmother, Gloria, whom she hasn’t seen for years, Barbara is greeted instead by Grey. It doesn’t take long for a different kind of spark to fly as Barbara takes up residence in the Withers mansion.
When Grey falls inexorably in love with not only Barbara, but also her daughter Allie, he vows to do everything he can to protect them from her husband who is out for revenge.

Allie had watched him walk out of sight, and I could only wonder what was going on inside her little brain as she did. I knew that in my mind, I was seeing the most wonderful man I had ever met stride proudly away. He wasn’t leaving us; he was just going to do his job—and I couldn’t wait to see him again later that night. I took an extra few minutes to make sure I was dressed nicely, although I only had on slacks and a blouse. Grey didn’t appear to be the type of guy to get turned on by expensive clothes, and I loved that about him.
There were many things that I liked about him, from the way the sun lightened his hair to the way his eyes sparkled as he looked at me with a smile.
I knew we were far from a point where either of us could state we had feelings for one another, but part of me wanted to believe in the romantic fairy tale of love at first sight—the night he had held Allie over the sink and grinned as she made a mess.
That night I saw a man I could love, a man who could not only love me, but my daughter as well. My rational mind knew it was way too early to even consider such things. After the relationship from hell that I had been in, and was still trying to legally get out of, you would think I would run for the hills to avoid any attachment, yet I longed for a loving family—something that I had been denied.
I wanted a man I could adore, and one that desired me for who I was, not how I could please him. I wanted a father for Allie, someone she could look up to so she could experience that not all men are as horrible as her father. I wanted a friend with whom I could share my life, the ups and downs and twists and turns that life threw at you. I wanted to be loved like a woman, not be a possession to be controlled.

My head told me over and over it was too soon to even consider filling that position, but my heart told me to take the vacancy sign down because the spot had already been filled. How was that possible? I stared at myself in the mirror a moment longer. I had my whole life to fall in love and have a happy family. I would take it one day at a time.
I skipped down the stairs and had just reached the bottom step when the doorbell rang. I pulled the door open wide, and my heart dropped into my stomach as I was ripped off of cloud nine.
“Well, if it isn’t my dear, sweet wife,” Todd smirked. “Don’t you look lovely—and alive.”

What goes up must come down…

Kyra Sanders had a promising career in country music in her teen years. She gained popularity and fame, riding high atop the the charts. Then one deadly accident changed things, sending her spiraling downward to the point she went into a hiatus from music.
Six years later, Kyra’s making her return to the music scene. With an album in the works and a new song on the radio, her career is back on track, until a call from Texas with news of an accident forces her to halt her plans.
Matt Greer is working through the aftermath of his ex-wife’s abandonment when she chose to leave him and their fourteen year old son to pursue her own musical dreams. He’s had enough of troubled musicians and the havoc they bring to his life. Kyra surprises him in a good way, but it doesn’t mean he wants anything to do with a singer who comes to town with trouble on her trail.
It’s hard to avoid each other in a small town, especially when their families are close. Matt should stay away from the woman who could lead danger right to their town, and it’s possible she already has, but he can’t help how drawn he becomes to her.
The sparks ignite, but danger lurks in the distance, only getting closer as time goes on. For two people who want different things out of life, it’s possible to find healing together…

“I know it’s a far cry from the parties you’re used to.” Matt leaned close to talk near her ear.

“That’s a good thing,” Kyra snapped, immediately regretting it. Was he going on his judgmental kick again?
“Kyra-” He pinched the bridge of his nose. “I misjudge you once, and you always think that’s what I’m doing?”
She was about to apologize when the song changed from an upbeat one to a slow country ballad. Kyra laughed. This was her song! “Seriously? Did you put them up to this?”
Matt shook his head. “Nope. I never suggested the music. But since this is your song, literally, I think we should dance.” He held out a hand.
She stared down at it. “Are we supposed to dance?” So he knew her song. It surprised her, but made her feel good, too.
“Dancing is permitted. We’re here to help out, and there’s nothing that says we can’t dance. Hey look, Blaine and Randy are out on the floor, too.” He gestured. “Come on.”
She stepped into his embrace and swayed to the music. Her music. This was a first. Kyra had never danced with a sexy man to her own song before. His arms tightened around her waist.
“So how old were you when this song came out?” Matt whispered in her ear.
“Sixteen,” she replied, glancing around the room as they moved. A few yards away from them were Andrew and Daisy. So far, she’d handled the crowd pretty well. Good.
“Just two years older than Andrew is now, and you had multiple number ones already.” Matt mused.
“What’s that like?”
She tensed, not sure how to answer.
“Does it bother you that I’m asking? It’s out of curiosity. I’m not judging or anything. I really want to know. It’s interesting. Here I am, dancing with you during my son’s first date. At the age he is now, you broke out in the business. He wasn’t even in kindergarten when you had your biggest hits on the radio.”
She looked up at Matt. Kyra was tall at 5’8, and Matt had a good four or five inches on her. “It’s a feeling I can’t explain. I never expected to take off the way I did. I was different as a child. I always had a melody playing in my mind. I couldn’t sit still. I’d tap out a beat, or I’d hum. I had song lyrics pop up in my mind that needed to be put to music.”
“I know all about that. I remember the first time I met you.” There was a twinkle in his eye.
“Yeah, I annoyed you because I tapped out a beat on your dashboard.”
“Then you hummed.” Matt laughed, then his grin faded. “It wasn’t so much annoying as I was nervous about the storm. Adding sounds I’m not used to didn’t help.”
“And you didn’t like me.” Kyra wished she’d never said that.
Matt lowered his gaze. “It wasn’t quite that.”
“No?” Did she really have to ruin the good night by bringing up their awkward first meeting? Why, why, why?
Matt pulled her closer. “Okay, fine. Maybe a little, and I regret it. Let’s just say there’s a history with me and musicians, and I took it out on the wrong girl.”
