Introducing THE WORST MAN

After I released NOT QUITE PERFECT, fans kept asking when I was going to write Hank and Miranda’s story. Apparently, you couldn’t get enough of the playboy professor and the woman he loved to hate. I had an idea percolating in my head of what I wanted their story to be, so when I found out that Flirt Club’s theme for June was going to be all about weddings, I knew this was my opportunity to write this enemies-to-lovers story I loved so much.

So without further ado, introducing THE WORST MAN, available June 18 exclusively on Amazon (and free with your Kindle Unlimited subscription).

Imagine my surprise when I woke up next to my worst enemy wearing nothing but a wedding ring and a smile.

Attending a conference alongside Professor Hank Talbot is never a good time. Pretending we actually like each other is even less so.

So when he tells our colleagues that my idea of fun is to organize my sock drawer, I’m ready to show him I’m not the shrew he thinks I am. He wants to see me let loose? Bring on the shots!

From nightclubs to dive bars, we hit up all that Sin City has to offer— including, it turns out, Elvis’s wedding chapel. That’s right. Hank and I are the biggest Las Vegas cliché. We got drunk, and then we got hitched.

But even worse than marrying a man I hate? His family just offered me $3 million to stay that way!

Fall in love with The Baker's Beauty

The Baker’s Beauty released on Wednesday, October 24, and Jamaila and I are so proud to introduce you to Sean Amory and Jessica Casillas-Moore. He’s a little bit broken after a tragic moment from his past (okay, a lot broken), while she’s struggling to carve out a future for herself amidst a changing career landscape and a loud, overbearing family.*

We hope you’ll download The Baker’s Beauty and that this story of love, loss, and redemption will warm your heart.

* While I usually write the heroes and Jamaila tackles the heroines, we flipped the script on this one. Given that Jess is half Mexican it made sense for me to take on her story as I grew up in a mixed family (my white father married a Mexican American woman and I lived with them from the time I was nine until I left home for college). A lot of what you see with Jess’s family is inspired by my own experiences with such a large, vocal brood.

Fun fact: I’d fully forgotten what a dustpan was called until I was telling my then-boyfriend-now-husband to bring me the palita and he had no idea what I was talking about.
