About the Author

Where to begin?….I have always been an avid reader, even as a child, and loved to get lost in a good book.  That love had to be put on hold for a decade while I dedicated my life to my professional career and creating my family.

I have been Blessed with a wonderful husband and two angels of children.  Supporting them is now my number on priority. HOWEVER, I found time to reignite my love of books.  Ever the Twi-hard, Twilight took me by storm that was escalated even further by Fifty Shades of Grey. “It all started with a Vampire who was replaced by a man with a whip.” As I read the tales written by all my favorite authors my mind wandered into stories of my own and my creative side forced me to write them down. 

When my time is not consumed watching my daughter dance, my son play hockey, spending time with my husband or working I am lost in either reading a good book or writing.  There are more stories to come.

Thank you for taking the time to read my book and for all of your support.

    Tragedy destroyed Alex Kohen’s life, until fate offered her a chance to escape her nightmares and possibly find love…
     Beautiful, compassionate Dr. Alex Kohen had the perfect life – until, in an instant, it was tragically ripped from her. Plagued by her demons, Alex moves to a new city and devotes herself to her work and her patients. But her secrets continue to haunt her, making her afraid to build a future outside of her career. Convinced that her heart is irreparably broken, Alex has closed herself off to the possibility of love.
    That is, until she meets sexy, confident Kellen Rhion – a wealthy CEO with a reputation as the ultimate playboy. Kellen, plagued by personal tragedies of his own, knows from the moment they meet that Alex is the woman he wants. And with patient determination, he slowly begins to break down her long-fortified defenses.
     Although they meet under tragic circumstances, out of that catastrophe is born a connection that neither can deny. And despite the challenges of their demanding and busy careers, Alex and Kellen find the time to nurture their growing relationship. They struggle through obstacle after obstacle, including Kellen’s celebrity lifestyle and Alex’s emotional baggage.
     But after Kellen’s supposed betrayal and brush with death, can Alex really trust him with her heart? And can Kellen accept that she will always, in a way, be broken?




Alex excused herself to the ladies room, kissing Kellen on the cheek as she left. She looked up in time to see Thomas watching. Kellen smiled, noticing that her actions had drawn his father’s attention.

In the ladies room, feeling daring, Alex removed her thong and concealed it in her hand. When she returned to her seat, she slipped her hand under the table to Kellen’s lap. He reached out to take her hand, but instead Alex slipped him her panties. Kellen raised an eyebrow as he felt the soft silk in his hand and realized what it was. He looked at her, eyes darkening with desire as a devious smile overtook his face. Alex withdrew her hand and Kellen placed the panties in his pocket.

He leaned into Alex and whispered in her ear, voice low and seductive, “You drive me crazy. I wish I could take you right now.”

Alex ran a finger along his jawline affectionately. “We might be able to arrange something before the night is over.”


That night, Kellen was startled awake by the sound of a key in the door. Realizing that there was only one person it could be, he smiled to himself. Alex appeared, a shadow in the doorway. She approached silently and stripped off her scrubs at the side of the bed. Kellen lifted the blanket for her to crawl in next to him.

“Sorry, did I wake you?” she asked, snuggling in beside him.

“It’s alright. I’m happy you did. I missed you tonight. Bad day at work?”

“Three deaths and a cocky, lazy resident. I’m emotionally drained. I know I should be used to it by now, but I hate to lose a patient, let alone three.”

“No, you just have a heart – a big one.” He kissed her hair.

“I’m sorry I disturbed you.…I…I just…I didn’t want to be alone,” she mumbled, her voice cracking.

“Alex,” he whispered in her ear, “you never have to be alone again.”


Kellen pulled her close with a sparkle in his eyes. In the privacy of the balcony, there was only one thing he could do at that moment; he leaned in and softly pressed his lips to hers. With the alcohol buzzing through her system, Alex couldn’t think clearly enough to push him away, and truthfully, she didn’t know if she could have done so even with complete control of her faculties. He was an amazing kisser, and Alex’s breasts soon grew heavy with arousal, waves of heat shooting to her lower belly. His tongue softly caressed her lips, but she felt it in her most private parts. A moan escaped her, and Kellen’s onslaught became more aggressive. His hands gripped her small waist as if he feared she was an illusion.


“Alex, you need to eat,” Kellen prompted after a while.

“I know. I just don’t have much of an appetite. The food is wonderful. It was very thoughtful of you to bring it in.”

Disappointed and suddenly feeling like an intruder, Kellen said, “I just wanted to see you before I left for my trip.”

The nursing staff and residents had started trickling in to grab some food, and Alex suddenly needed to get out of the ICU.

“Let’s go to my office,” she said, discarding her plate of picked-over food and striding purposefully from the room. Intrigued, Kellen followed. With a quick directive to Gia to page her if necessary, the two were out the door.

Just down the hall, Alex led Kellen into her office, which was nicely decorated, and had its own bathroom and sleeping quarters. Kellen looked around, checking everything out. There were a few pictures on Alex’s desk of what looked to be her parents and a couple friends, but other than that, the office was impersonal – but private. Taking advantage, Kellen hugged Alex close, then lifted her chin and placed a soft kiss on her lips before trailing down to her neck, which elicited a soft moan. He let go of her long enough to swiftly close and lock the door, then walked back towards her, his stance predatory. He pushed Alex up against the wall and secured her hands above her head.

“I’ve not been able to think of anything but you since Saturday night. I cannot be away from you for another second,” he said, voice deep and seductive. Then, pinning her against the wall with his hips, he kissed her passionately. Alex did not resist – it was good to be able to get away from her thoughts and lose herself in him.

Kellen’s tongue tangled with hers while he ground his arousal into her, leaving her wet and throbbing with need. Her nipples tightened, and Kellen used his free hand to reach under her scrub top and bra to caress her heavy, tingling breasts. His touch was pure heaven. It had been so, so long since a man had made her feel the way that Kellen was making her feel. Alex knew that the prudent thing to do would be to stop before things escalated, but found herself so caught up in the out-of-this-world sensations he was stimulating in her lady parts that she just could not bring herself to voice her concern.

In a fit of passion, Kellen lifted her up and carried her to her sleeping quarters…
