Some marriages last a week, a month, or a year. Others last a lifetime. Mine ends on my wedding night, ten hours after the exchange of rings.
Our vows break when my husband, the man I saved myself for, looks me in the eye and tells me I failed between the sheets.
My marriage ends before the ink dries, before the scent of my bouquet fades, before the candles in our honeymoon suite burn out.
Three months later, I’m divorced and working as a massage therapist on the LaClaire Cruise Ship, headed for the Caribbean. I’m desperate to get away, to lick my wounds in private. I’m not looking to be another man’s disappointment.
Until Bryant LaClaire invades my space and makes my panties melt. The moment our eyes meet, he makes it clear I’m his girl of the moment.
Drawing me in with his charm and good looks, he promises to repair my sexual self-esteem while satisfying his own needs. A few LaClaire nights is all he can give. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s an offer my body can’t resist.
But when my heart betrays me, and lures me into the heart and world of a man who carries a devastating secret, I know I’m in danger of returning home with more pain than I’d left with.
LaClaire Nights is a very steamy full-length, standalone novel with a happy ending.

Noun: a difficult, or otherwise unfortunate situation.

I promised myself to a man. Well, technically, I promised myself to a boy. We were eight years old. Neighbours. He gave me a Cheezel, pushed it onto my finger, and asked me to marry him.
I ate the Cheezel.
I also said, “Yes” but that we’d have to wait until we were thirty.
It was my thirtieth birthday last week and now he’s calling in that promise.
Seriously, Elliot Parker is insane if he thinks that an out of the blue private Facebook message stipulating the binding law of an oral contractual agreement is going to seal our twenty-two-year bullshit engagement.
I wonder if he really does look like his profile picture, though.
