I'm delighted to bring you my latest novel, which I loved writing and has a special place in my heart. I hope you love its angsty romance as much as I do.


Seventeen year-old Sloane Munster is funny, feisty, and scarred. Trying to reboot her life after a serious auto accident, she starts her senior year at a new school and immediately has a scar-to-face encounter with the caramel-haired, hazel-eyed Luke Naughton, whom she once (almost) met on the competitive swimming circuit. Sloane is attracted. Luke, unfortunately, seems disgusted and revolted. But the chemistry between them sparks a growing connection set against a background of guilt, secrets, and mounting tensions at a school where bullying is rife and Sloane is not the most deeply scarred person.

Life leaves you scarred, love can make you beautiful.

You can buy it on Kindle at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk or many other of the Amazon stores. Or there's a paperback available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, rolling our to the other stores.
