Slave to the Rhythm COVER.jpg

AP - Synopsis.jpg


DANCE. Guns.


MUSIC. Bullets.




Music in my head, dance in my body, the rhythm of my heart.


How far can you fall in just one month? How quickly can the human spirit be broken? Where does evil hide in plain sight?


Ash wants to dance. Needs it. To leave behind a life of expectation and duty, to set his soul free.


But life is never that simple. Every step is a journey on a new road.


For every action, there is a reaction.


Every choice has a consequence.


And when you meet the wrong person, all bets are off.


Laney tolerates her limitations, pushing quietly at boundaries. But when Ash crashes into her world through rage and violence, it sets off a chain reaction that neither of them expected.

Laney POV

His eyes glowed, passion firing through them. Then he lowered his head and kissed the back of my hand.

It was a sweet, old fashioned gesture, totally at odds with the lust I saw as he let his eyes stroll across my body, seemingly unable to choose between my breasts or my lips.

I helped make up his mind by folding my arms around him and tugging his head down so I could press my lips against his.

He opened his mouth, then proceeded to give me the hottest, slowest, most tantalizing kiss I’d ever had. He was telling me that he was in control and he’d kiss me the way he damn well wanted.

Playful Ash, serious Ash, flirty Ash—I couldn’t help thinking that sexy-as-sin Ash was proving to be my favorite.

His hips moved in a slow rhythm that may have been dancing or may have been back-to-basics grassroots grinding. I reached down for the heat between his legs, massaging the growing bulge at the front of his jeans.

A shudder ran through his body and he ground harder against my hand. I couldn’t wait to be skin to skin.

I unbuttoned his shirt clumsily, fingers deft as sausages as I tried to get at his bare skin. He laughed against my lips and lifted his arms so I could pull the cotton over his head.

Skin like warm silk, smooth and soft, covering hard muscle, my fingers dragged across the planes and ripples of his chest and stomach, then fluttered over the welts and scarred flesh of his back.

Ash kicked off his shoes, and rid himself of the rest of his clothes before prowling toward me. His eyes said, naked now! Mine replied, make me.

He swept me from my feet so swiftly, my stomach swooped, and he carried me to the bed, our bed, working my clothes from my body between slow, hot kisses.

I closed my eyes, needing some defense against his beautiful face and the sensations that threatened to overwhelm me. He was an ocean wave, the high tide, and I was drowning in happiness and physical pleasure.

Slave to the Rhythm#TrueStoryTHE FIRST THING that popped in my head after I finished this ridiculously captivating book was … “What the hell did I just read?!” And then I paused, absorbed it all and went to bed LOL
Let me explain …. This story is NOTHING like what you think it might be. #TRUST I’m not gonna lie, the cover (#gorgeous) made me read the blurb and the blurb had me running to grab this ARC! And then I started reading and
BAM … Prologue Heaven!
Anyone that can read the prologue of THIS book and stop reading … well, they just ain’t right LOL So almost 5 hours later, I devoured this book like it was chocolate cake!

For the first part of the book, you’re glued by the suspense of the story. Ash has left his country to come to the States to chase the America dream. And as it happens so many times, the dream became a nightmare. Until …. Laney 🙂 Laney not only becomes Ash’s light at the end of the tunnel, but his salvation, his purpose, his future 🙂

Laney Hennessey is a woman trapped. Trapped by a debilitating chronic disease. Her body may be trapped, but not her soul … she refuses to be anyone’s burden. She stands (no pun intended) on her own and tries to live to its fullest.

They were two lost souls who had no idea they were … kismet 🙂

I’m not going to go into details about the plot, but you should be aware that this is not a rainbows and gumdrops story. There’s all kinds of different triggers, but it’s life. It’s a very powerful, dark, fictional romantic suspense that is very much real.

Pick this book up … it will take you on a journey you will soon not forget! #TRUST

AP - about the author.jpg


For as long as I can remember, I wanted to write. Perhaps it was growing up in a village well known for its mystery and folklore, which sparked my imagination as a child.

I enjoy writing in several different genres, and I’ve just published my first romcom, ‘Dazzled’.

All my books have a little me in them, and I’m inspired by the personal stories of those around me. It’s often from a simple discussion overheard in the train (‘Exposure’), in a café, or in the street, where ideas for characters or scenes come to me.

I fell in love with both Sam (‘The New Samurai’) and the eponymous Sebastian in ‘The Education of Sebastian’ and the sequel ‘The Education of Caroline’, and missed them desperately once I’d finished their stories. I love writing dialogue and always try to include touches of humour in the most poignant stories.

Whether you like adult romance novels, new or young adult writing, thrillers, or fantasy, I hope you’ll enjoy the journey through my stories.
