The Santa Claus


Genre: MM

Hosted by DS Book Promotions






Also available in Amazon


On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…a Santa Claus.

It’s the holidays. A time Deacon Brady spends with his family in New York City during the most wonderful time of the year.

This year, things are different for the former Hollywood Soap Opera star and A-Lister. Now, Deacon Brady is unemployed, and at the brink of losing everything due to the Global Financial Crisis.

All he wants to do is enjoy the holidays, be with Brodie, and try to get his life back on track. That quickly changes however, when he meets the attractive and mysterious stranger known as Kris…Kris Kringle that is.

With news from Brodie that will change Deacon’s life forever, can he find happiness with Kris for the holidays?

The Santa Claus is told through the eyes of multiple character points of view who appear in the Men of the World Series. The main character, Deacon Brady, his sister Kate, Brodie, his boyfriend, the mysterious and gorgeous looking Kris, and producer of Tainted Love, Dante. It serves as a prequel to the Men of the World series and ties into the events of the first book.

Merry Christmas.

How does this stuff keep happening to me?

First it was my cheating ex and the—uhhhh—“accident” that had everyone in town calling me crazy.

Now, I’ve moved to a completely different state, and what have I done? I dropped right into another problem.

This time though, it’s not a cheating ex, it’s the Russian Mob.

To make matters worse, I now have to live with the son of my landlords, who are part of the Devil’s Soldiers MC, who is a smart-mouthed, arrogant, jerk.

I don’t care how hot he is, I’m not about to make his life easy.

Except, the chemistry between us is out of this world, and now he’s the only one that seems to be able to save me from the mob that’s hot on my tail.


She is the most irritating woman I’ve ever met.

How the hell have I gotten wrapped up in being her bodyguard/roommate?

I mean, we can barely stand each other, she’s crazy, and now I have to be around her twenty-four/seven.

I’m talking worse than my mother crazy.

Do we have chemistry?

Oh yeah, but I don’t have time for that brand of insanity.

The Russian Mob is after her for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I need to keep her safe.

So why am I constantly allowing myself to think about her in all the ways I shouldn’t?

About the Author:

I live in New Brunswick, Canada with my husband and our two dogs, Remi and Sako (pronounced Say-co).

When I’m not writing, I’m playing fetch with the dogs, talking to my parents for endless amounts of hours, annoying the crap out of my husband, or just enjoying life with my friends.

Writing has been a part of my life since I was about 12.

I started out just writing short stories or silly knock-offs of my favorite shows or movies.

Soon, though, I realized just how much I loved to write.

How often my mind would wander and think of characters and where they could go.

They became real to me, and I would start to write.

I used to fill up notebooks and pads of paper when I got an idea.

It would be an obsession, almost, to get on paper.

Then, when I was old enough to have a computer, I started there.

Now, I’m 28 years old and I finally hit that button.

The one that I’ve thought about it over and over again for the past 16 years.

There is no greater joy, or fear, at realizing you’ve just accomplished something that you’ve wanted to do for so very long.

That is my greatest accomplishment and I look forward to hitting that button on many more.

A Man For The Holidays


Genre: MM

Cover Designer: Dana @Designs by Dana

Release Date: December 20

Hosted by DS Book Promotions

AMAZON Pre-Order





Apple, Kobo, Nook:


Spencer always regarded himself as a hopeless romantic. A boring, pathetic loser who gave up on dating and finding love for the holidays. For the past ten years, it’s just been him and his best friend, Paige.

Aside from the ‘loser’ status, Spencer also has an obsession. An obsession that would seem crazy, stupid, and even idiotic to everyone else, you know, all the ‘normal’ people. For Spencer though, this obsession is anything but normal, and he knows it.

Day after day he spends his time in a men’s clothing store, obsessing over Quinn. Quinn is a handsome, mysterious, and spectacular creation who Spencer knows absolutely nothing about, but finds himself extremely attracted to the guy.

There’s just one problem––Quinn is a mannequin.

All Spencer wants is a man. Someone to be with, shop with, sleep with, fall in love with, even if it’s just for the holidays. All he wants … is Quinn.

What he wasn’t expecting, however, was to find Quinn, the mannequin he’s been obsessing over, standing at his front door at midnight, two weeks before Christmas … as a real-life human being.

Is Quinn staying just for the holidays? Or will he and Spencer find their Happily Ever After that will last an eternity?
