Harper Dallas is so desperate for the job, she’s willing to lie on her resume to get it. But she has a good reason, and she’s qualified. So that makes it OK, right?
Ethan Young is her devastatingly hot and sexy new boss, and he hired her based on her lie. He’s wonderful, and he’s falling hard for Harper. But office romance is forbidden, so he can’t touch her, no matter what his heart and hormones say.
But when the boss and employee take a business trip to Las Vegas, well… what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!
Eventually, Harper knows she must tell Ethan the truth, even if it means risking everything… her newfound happiness, her amazing job, and the man of her dreams.
Her lie is eating her alive. If she comes clean, will their love survive?

This is Lisa’s story, who is Crystal’s best friend (from book #3, Play Time).
Christmas Beauty Book Description
Lisa is a smart, sexy bombshell who sees men only as a source of pleasure. She never dates exclusively, and there’s a reason she never lets them stay all night.
Mark is a lawyer and single dad who’s focused on raising his young daughter. He’s definitely not looking for love.
But when Lisa walks into Mark’s law office, his world is turned upside down. He can’t stop thinking about her. Lisa is everything beautiful, like a holiday gift, wrapped in glitter and bows, and too enticing to pass up.
And Mark isn’t the only one affected. For the first time in Lisa’s life, she finds herself smitten, with a one-track mind for Mark.
Both in uncharted territory, and the holiday season in full swing, they’re falling hopelessly in love.
But when Lisa breaks a promise to Mark’s daughter, it’s more than he can bear.
Heartbroken, Lisa digs deep into her soul and reawakens on a new path for her life. One that is long overdue and will forever change her.
Can Mark ever forgive Lisa for what she did? Will they find their way back to each other in time for Christmas?

Being an author scratches my creative itch, sure. But I was recently hit with two specific reasons I love it.
1. I look forward to getting older.
Aging? Gasp. Yes!
Because it is through growing older—having more life experiences—that I will have more authentic stories to write. It is the stories woven with direct experience, whether I write fiction or non-fiction, that spill from me the easiest, the fastest.
2. It makes me super adventurous!
I want to taste, try, explore everything, so I can write a character who will do it, or a scene where I can describe every aspect of it, and not because I read about it online, but because I actually did it myself.
For example, I used to say I’d never learn to surf because of sharks, cracking my head open on coral, etc. But you know what? I want to do it now. And I want to cook octopus so I can properly write about a character doing it. I want to try strange foods, whether they’re awful, disgusting or pure ambrosia, tasting, feeling, and smelling them. I want to go to places all over the world, even if they’re bug-infested (Amazon, anyone?) to accurately write about them, allowing my reader to also feel like they’ve been there!
The places that might have scared me previously? I now look at them with wildly excited eyes.
And it’s not just having these explorations in isolation. Oh no… it’s the synergy of combining them, spinning them every which way—together—that makes for even more memorable tales.
It’s weaving a blanket, with threads of different colors, textures, and feels(!), taken from different life experiences and times, so when it’s interlaced, crisscrossed, it forms a whole story, complete, and unique in only the way it can be.
Today is a big day for me.
I released my 7th romance novel, and it’s the 3rd book in my Young Series.
Play Time, which I’m featuring today, tells the story about the irresistible playboy Gavin… who swears he’d never settle down.
Play Time Description
Crystal is on the most important journey of her life, when she moves in next door to Gavin. Gavin is the hot playboy who, suddenly, only has eyes for Crystal. But she can’t give her heart to anyone right now. She’s healing from her traumatic past.
Desperate to win her heart, Gavin is determined to help her heal, and she lets him in to try.
But his playboy past keeps coming up everywhere they turn. It threatens to destroy them, and the final blow shatters their world.
Both heartbroken, can they somehow find a way to build a future together?
*Author’s note: Play Time is a stand-alone, steamy romance novel in the Young Brothers Series with a Happily Ever After.
What does this mean for you?
If you haven’t started the series, then I recommend starting with Fake It. (Ethan and Harper’s story). It’s a sexy steamy boss and employee relationship that’ll leave you fanning your face from the heat.
After that, it’s Count on Me (Benjamin and Penny’s story) which is an opposites attract, steamy love story that’s full of laughs, angsty moments, and sweet love.
Although each novel is a standalone story, they still read better in order.
Enjoy and happy reading.

My newest non-fiction book is NOW available on Amazon.com! Only ebook for now (the print version will be available in 24 hours).
It’s Time to DANCE!
I remember the day I told Greg about my daily Coffee Self-Talk routine I was doing every morning. We were in our tiny Italian kitchen in Rovigo, Italy, where we were pursuing my dual Italian citizenship.
He loved it and said, “You need to write a book about that!”
He was right.

As you know from my last post, we have arrived in Italy. We are required to stay in our apartment for two weeks. And I have to say I am relieved at this forced quarantine.
Relieved(!) because it took away any tantalizing tickles to explore our new town, instead of staying home and setting it up, unpacking, and getting settled.
It allowed us to really get to know our new home.
It also gave me the space and time to get back into my writing groove that was disrupted by travel. So I am loving the quarantine, and we only have a few days left.
So What Have We Been Doing?
Um, loving our lives in Italy. The magic of this life, this town, is already permeating my bones, and we haven’t even left our castle-cave-like apartment.
Our apartment is indeed magical all on its own just from living inside the walls of it (we think the building is ~700 years old!)… Can you imagine the history? The families who have lived here? I’m blown away and brought to tears just pondering the thoughts.
Plus? Our apartment comes with (many) cats outside our windows and Italian clay tile rooftop views and precious cobblestone streets outside our front door that I glimpse when I take out the recycle or accept deliveries.
I am so lit up, like Christmas time in Rockefeller Plaza. I love our apartment, our town, our landlords, our life!
I manifested this awesome sh*t! So I’m empowered even more!
Shopping While in Quarantine
Turns out Amazon in Italy has Amazon Prime, so I’ve ordered many things. On one delivery, the post lady kept saying under her masked face “Tanti scatoli!” (many boxes!)
And it dawned on me that I’m no longer a digital nomad.
I have a home base. We’ll continue to travel, especially to explore Europe for anywhere from a week to a month at a time (though not anytime soon, ahem, Covid), but we’ll have a home to come home to with things when we do travel.
One of My Favorite Purchases So Far? The Instant Pot.
I made a frittata, which came out beautifully. Six eggs, a handful of freshly grated white cheese of some sort, plus a handful of freshly grated parmigiano, and some herbs.
I haven’t used an Instant Pot in years, but here’s a link to many recipes I wrote when I had one back in the states.
And I’m also in love with my desk and office chair where I’ll be writing the next 50 books.
And our printer! You know you’re not a digital nomad anymore when you have a big-ass laser printer.
Abundance… That’s Happening Here!
Our landlords—who have been so amazing and wonderful and kind and generous—they’ve been bringing us tons of fresh, organic produce from their garden. Every day! Talk about abundance! I’ve got it right here. And it’s different every day: figs, peaches, tomatoes, asparagus, chard, grapes…
They live in the same building as us, so I don’t know where their garden is. (I think they live in the apartment above us. Which is nice because we have a family to get to know, and they’re right here if we need them. That’s nice when moving to a foreign country.)
For example, it can be very helpful when we have to file paperwork in the town and get our health cards and identification cards to have a local here will help to the process. We are so blessed.
I’m Back to Writing My Romance Novels
In other news: I finished editing my sixth steamy romance novel while in quarantine here, Count On Me.
I just started novel number seven, Playtime! I dictated 10,000 words just today. The muse is real here.
Non-Fiction New Release Coming!
I am so very, very close to publishing Coffee Self-Talk on Amazon. Thank you to everyone who has been writing to me and asking me about it!
It’s coming! It’s coming!
… in a couple of days! Stay tuned to get your hands on my book that describes a 5-minute routine to transform your life. It transformed mine! I’m living proof.
Movement is a part of my every day, and I’m still as madly in love with my Apple 3 watch as I was when I first got it (read why I love it so much here). Some of the best money I’ve ever spent.
So my watch basically makes sure I work out, and with quarantine (and gyms not open, not that I’d want to be in one now anyway), we’re making a home gym where I do progressive calisthenics and use bands for staying toned and tight. I bought this mirror too because using a mirror motivates me!
Coloring my own hair
I also highlighted my own hair with an at-home bleach kit I brought from the US. The results? Well, if I wear it a certain way, I can maybe get away with it.
So You See? So Much to Do in Quarantine!
Living My Happy Sexy Millionaire Life!
I am living my Happy Sexy Millionaire life. And I’m so happy, I could cry sparkly tears of joy and bliss. One of the most exciting updates with my life is that the apartment I am living in, in this amazing hilltop town… I friggin’ manifested it, from the beautiful decor, to having screens on our windows (not so common in Italy)! It worked! I did it!
When I started blogging about my decision to be a Happy Sexy Millionaire, the point was to share the journey. The things I’m learning and manifesting, the life. So with that, coming soon I ‘ll share the story about manifesting my amazing apartment in Italy.
Also, I update all of my Instagram accounts, so if you’d like to stay in touch between blog posts, that’s where you can see more.
