My good intentions always led to disaster. The cold hard truth is that I was never meant to be a father to Lily. Staying in Treepoint, Kentucky for a few weeks to get to know my daughter was meant to be a time of discovery, instead I find out that she’s married to a killer and living in a sex club. I’m going to find out how to destroy The Last Riders and give Lily the future she deserves.

He thinks I’m a whore; he doesn’t know me. I’m nobody’s fool, but he thinks he’s going to use me to find The Last Riders only weakness. That’s his biggest mistake of all. There’s more to me than meets the eye. King thinks he’s too good for me, that I’m less than dirt in his eyes. What the King of Queen City is going to find out too late is that I’m his judge, and I hold his life in my hands.

When King took a bite of a casserole, his expression had Evie handing him several napkins. She continued eating her own food while he tried to rinse out his mouth with his iced tea.

“Gina made that. Never been to a hometown potluck?”

“No.” His strangled voice had Evie giving him advice.

“Next time, take a small bite until you’re sure if you like it or not. Of course, I do have the hometown advantage and know the best cooks.”

“You knew it was going to taste bad?” King asked, taking another drink of tea.

“I was hoping she was improving. At Christmas, she made a potato casserole that was almost edible. That looked really good; I was waiting to see if it was before I got some. I guess I won’t be making a trip back.”

King’s next bite was tiny as he chewed thoughtfully. “You could have given me a warning.”

“I figured you deserved it after last night.”

“What did I do last night?”

Evie set her fork down. “I haven’t known you long, but I don’t think you seem to be stupid. Unless I’m mistaken.”

“No.” King’s friendliness disappeared into the wind.

“Then don’t act like you don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about.”

“You’re cussing in church?”

“I’m pretty sure God knows you’re an ass.”

King burst into laughter. “You’re right. It’s not like I can hide it.”

“You make no effort to hide your dislike of Shade, and if you don’t cut it out, you’re going to lose Lily as quickly as you decided to finally be a father.”

King’s face turned to granite. “It’s none of your business.”

“Then don’t make snide comments to my friends in front of me. I might not know a lot about you, King, but I’m telling you that Shade loves Lily. He’ll make her a good husband.”

“Does Lily know you’ve fucked her husband?”

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduate this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing four series of books- The Last Riders, The Dark Souls, The VIP Room, and Biker Bitches series. My favorite book I have written is Soul Of A Woman, which I am hoping to release during the summer of 2014. It took me two years to write, during which I lost my mother, and brother. It’s a book that I truly feel captures the true depths of love a woman can hold for a man. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am an emotional writer who wants the readers to feel the emotion of the characters they are reading. Because of this, Teased is probably the hardest thing I have written.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best. In the near future I hope to take a weekend break and visit Vegas that will hopefully be this summer. Right now I am typing away on my next story and looking forward to traveling this summer!”
