The heart of all my books, regardless of genre, is the message: Family are the people who love you when you need them whether you’re born to that family or find them along the way.

Grace Starr plans. She likes order, organization, and the smell of bleach. When her ex-husband evicts her from her predictable life, she’s faced with the hit-you-between-the-eyes realization she’s been a bystander in her own life. Then a letter arrives. An anonymous donor gifts her a worn-out house in a small town.

She’ll have to put up with the neighbor. Blaise Savage is an incorrigible, nearly washed-up drummer in a rock band. His unbridled personality challenges everything she holds dear. He’s sexy, and that wicked wink probably had half the female population in his bed. For Grace, his lifestyle is out of control.

Is the woman who never takes a risk willing to risk it all – and possibly fall in love?

Excitement, intrigue and video games…

How did I get here? Such a simple question with no simple answer. I was captivated as the answers knit together around the characters. I absolutely loved the refreshing perspective of the book along with the way the author introduces you to the world she’s created. Not spoon fed and over-explained, you use your imagination and intuition to put the pieces together. My one regret? Reading it so far in advance of book 2’s much anticipated March 2014 release date! Looking forward to picking up where Kata-Tartaroo left off and finding out what’s in store for Gabriel Hunter and his unlikely new best friends. A must read, young adult novel.
