She’s living in the shadows.


Long ago, I had given my heart to someone who callously threw it away, but I put my past behind me until the hurt and betrayal no longer consumed me.

I hid my secret from the world and the monster I knew was in it.

I had a great job, wonderful friends, and my parents…well, sadly, I wasn’t able to choose my parents.

Then one day, I see him again.

The man who stole my heart all those years ago.


He’s living in the dark.


I never wanted this life.

I thought I had been meant for something greater, but a few wrong turns have led me down this twisted path to here.

Now my life is not my own.

My name, my past, none of it is real.

As an undercover agent in the Sicilian Mafia, I live each day as if it is my last, because I know that it could be.

And then she finds me.

When Evelyn comes back into my life, I try my best to hold her at arm’s length.

No one can hide forever, though.

If I’m not careful, my enemies will find me and try to destroy me.

I’d do anything to keep her, but my time is running out.


In a world of lies, one truth will remain.

When I was left to drown underwater, you were the air that kept me breathing.

You’re cordially invited to attend this year’s spring break retreat at The Lodge.

It’s a highly exclusive experience guaranteed to redefine your future.

Assuming you survive.


I thought it was a joke.

Some pompous high-society game meant to play with the children of the elite.

But then people started dying.

Including the one who invited me to attend.

Now I’m the one they all suspect.

Because I have blood on my hands.

Their blood.


The pretty little pawn isn’t supposed to be here.

She’s unique. Not one of them. A potential prize I may take for myself.

But only if she learns how to properly play this game.

The terms are simple: truth or kill?

Mmm, I hope she picks kill.

Because she’ll look stunning in red.

Welcome to the darkness, my little black rose.

Blood is your new currency.

And it’s time to pay the price.

Author’s Note: Truth or Kill is a standalone novel. Please review the warning inside for dark content that may be triggering to readers.

Forbidden Love

Love isn’t supposed to be forbidden.

The heart and soul are supposed to get what they want… aren’t they?

For Kally, turning eighteen was supposed to be a turning point. She wanted to make something of herself. She was going to live the best life she could, with the only man she ever loved – Clark Collinson.

Only, turning eighteen was the end of her dreams. To stop a death sentence hanging over her family’s head, she had to do the two things she despised the most… live a lie and break Clark’s heart.

Clark Collinson is the one that got away. Breaking away from his family’s corrupt ways was the best thing he ever did, but his father never let that betrayal lie.

Getting away from his family was high on his list of priorities, but even higher on that list was the only woman he ever loved – Kally Jamieson.

Family drama, debts, and illegal activity are the critical turning point for this couple. Two families colliding, a contract, and nothing but sadness are standing between Kally and Clark.

Can Clark save Kally before it’s too late?

Can Kally remove the evil claws of one Collinson brother and live happily ever after with another?

This forbidden love could either make or break Kally and Clark, but either way, they’ll be together forever… dead or alive.
