So, my eighth novel, Heartscapes, will be out next month, but is available for pre-order now at www.boldstrokesbooks.com.

Heartscapes 300 DPI

I’m going to give away a copy here, though – that’s right – win it before you can buy it!

Here’s the blurb:

Jesse Garrett still grieves the death of her partner four years ago. The only thing that makes her feel alive are the nameless women with whom she shares her bed. And her art. When the opportunity arises for her to travel to Paris to study art, Jesse agrees to leave her dead-end job and take her chances in Paris.

Odette owns a cafe across the street from Jesse’s dorm. Jess frequents the cafe, mostly to see Odette with her silver hair and green eyes. It’s attraction at first sight.

Their love burns hot until Odette has a stroke, leaving her unable to remember Jesse. Will Odette ever remember her or must Jesse spend the rest of her time in Paris alone?


This book features an older woman, a health crisis and plenty of sex. What more could you ask for? Would you like to win a copy? Simply comment where you’d like to travel if you could go anywhere in the world and I’ll enter you in the drawing. The drawing will take place Thursday at 5 PM CST.

Thanks for reading!

    It’d have to be the United States, it’s such a big country with so much to see. I’d love to just buy a cheap car and drive from one side to the other, what an epic road trip that would be!!

    Three places, hopefully before I die….England, Ireland, and Greece.

    I have the book so no worries about entering me in the comp, plus I’m in England, so crazy postage costs. But I would LOVE to visit America one day. I want to go to quite a few different places in America, but I’d love to visit Florida and meet a friend I have there.

    Going to womens week and meeting a bunch of my fav authors would be a dream come true for me.

    Paris is high on my list, though I’ve been there a couple of times. I guess my dream trip would be a European tour starting in Ireland, then going through France, Spain and Italy.

    Ireland!! I love the accents and history
