She's a voluptuous pin-up with a killer personality.
Vivienne may play the role of a quiet, docile nightclub singer and waitress for her friends and family, but, behind closed doors, she gives into an insatiable hunger no man can escape.

She just wants to ignore her disturbing temptations. However, when Vivie's best friend convinces her to join an impromptu double-date with two handsome sailors, her plan gets blown to bits.

Sexy, dark, and sly, Naval Lieutenant Dean Vitson may be the only man who can give Vivie a reason to nix her "bad habits"--but he's running from his own dirty past. And his secrets could turn her world upside down.

Can Vivienne change her murderous ways to be with Dean?
Will she want to after she finds out what he's hiding?


Vivienne is a girl with a difficult past that has made her do things that "normal " girls wouldn't even think of.  The craving to kill the men she has sex with is something she can't seem to control.  So far she's never been caught but it looks like someone knows what she's been doing.  
Dean Vitson has been blackmailed into finding and killing a woman who has attracted the wrong person's interest.  
It's kill or be killed for both our lead characters. All either of them want is a normal life,  but that's never going to happen.  The Russian mob has a big stake in who comes out on top.  
This is an exciting if somewhat dark romance where you will find yourself cheering on the serial killer.  
A very unusual and enjoyable read. 


Synthia will do anything for her daughter - even murder.
1871, high-society Savannah, Georgia.

Penniless and jaded governess, Synthia James, is trapped with her employer, a man she once loved but now despises. His obsession with money and stature has corrupted them both. When he bids their young housemaid to kill a man who threatens his business, Synthia’s maternal instincts take over, and she commits the heinous deed herself.
Now there’s another business enemy... and her former beau wants him dead. But the new cotton farmer has revived Synthia’s long-forgotten passions.
With blood on her hands already, Synthia is prepared to kill again. But who? The new business partner for her daughter’s sake, or her greedy lover for morality and freedom?


Once upon a time Synthia James was in love with her boss Edison Pike.  Over the years he has changed into a monster using fear and brutality to control everything she does.  What he has forced her to do has changed her forever. 
The young mixed race girl she has brought up is as much a daughter to her as one from her body would have been.  She is also her weak spot.  
This is an exciting story set just after the American civil war. Many people are using very underhanded means to get very rich.  In this story our heroine needs all her strength,  both mental and physical. There is also a sexy romance with someone who has vengeance on his mind.  
An unusual and exciting read.  
I loved it.

Unfortunately, her love for books came later in life and proved to add a healthy challenge during her writing journey. Determined to hone her craft though, she soaks up as much information as she can, spends her free time tapping away in her favorite local coffee shop, and keeps a good book in hand whenever possible. 

What began as a hobby has grown into a way of escape and the yearning to take her journey farther, her love for writing and reading deepening along the way.
