Shame on You


No, I’m not scolding you! In case you haven’t heard the news, Shame on You (Fool Me Once, #1) is the first book in my brand new series with Amazon Publishing and it will be out FEBRUARY 25th!!!


War veteran Kennedy O’Brien is in the business of sticking it to the man—or at least any man who tries to cross a woman. After she returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, Kennedy lost her faith in men and started Fool Me Once Investigations with her two best friends. After all, there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.

When Kennedy takes a case to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned dog-napper, she figures it’ll be an easy paycheck. But trouble has a way of finding Kennedy. Enter the last man on the planet she’d willingly choose as a partner: her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.

As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin has always had a thing for Kennedy, and after keeping quiet about her ex’s cheating, he’ll do anything to earn back her trust. Whether or not she wants to admit it, Kennedy will need help as the case of the Chihuahua thief spirals out of control. Griffin may be just her man—in more ways than one.

“*Holding my stomach and trying not to pee my pants* OMG this book is a SCREAM!! If you fell in love with Tara reading her Chocolate Lover’s Series then this series is a MUST read and MUST buy.” – Twinsie Talk Book Reviews

“This was a quick read, but it was the funniest I’ve read in a long time. There were similarities to the old Stephanie Plum, but the characters were funnier and in the end she gets the hot ass guy on a Harley.” – Cocktails and Books

“Kennedy is a snarky, slightly neurotic and completely gutter-brained protagonist, but her antics and unreasonable attraction to Griffin are just too much fun! Kennedy is not only strong and capable, she’s someone readers can relate to.” – RT Book Reviews

NOLA Giveaway


NOLA authors







In case you missed the news, I was in New Orleans this past weekend for a book signing. I had an AMAZING time and I can’t wait to go back, although I think my liver might need a few months to recover.

NOLA bourbon street









Here are the things I learned while in NOLA:

1. You wake up smelling like booze & bad choices every morning. Even if you had no booze the night before. Or made any bad choices.

2. Beth Ehemann keeps better things under her pillow than I do. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

3. Sarah Hansen and I are way better looking than Kirsten Dunst according to our Blackjack dealer. So you know it’s true.

4. If you’re a homeless man with Herpes and Hep C, my husband will give you money and shake your hand and then walk around with his hands away from his body until he can find hand sanitizer. Every fucking time.

5. Never go to the bathroom with Christina Collie. Ever.

6. If you go on a voodoo/ghost tour and your guide can make fog appear and then when it’s over she disappears when you turn around…shit, I don’t know. I’m still freaked out over this.

7. Tressa Sager will take a sip of hot chocolate, burn her mouth and curse, then continue repeating the process and be surprised it’s so hot each time.

8. It’s Kristen Proby‘s fault that I have a new purse addiction.

9. Elizabeth Ellis will vault over a table & cut your mother if you roll your eyes at me. You’ve been warned.

10. Jenn Cooksey and I were clearly separated at birth.

11. Robin Stranahan gives great Brony.

12. New Orleans fans are AMAZING!!!

Don’t be sad you missed all the fun, I’ve got a NOLA-themed giveaway for 2 lucky winners!!!

1. A copy of Watch Over Me signed by all the authors/NOLA Swag

2. NOLA Swag
