For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a hopeless romantic. I love watching classic love stories such as Casablanca, Stormy Weather, and My Fair Lady as well as newer movies such as Love and Basketball, The Notebook and You’ve Got Mail. Romantic gestures from the heart have always made me smile. I’ve had quite a few over the years that have always stood out. Picnics in the park, a song written for me, watching the stars fall in the night sky on the beach, a gift for no reason or an airplane ride (he was flying the plane). The most recent is when my husband gave me four rose bushes for Valentine’s Day and planted them for me. They bloom beautifully every year. In my latest novel, The Game of Seduction, the hero Rasheed Vincent is a playboy who has fallen hard for the heroine, Dr. Bria Arrington. He shows his romantic side by taking her ice-skating, even though he doesn’t know how and cooks dinner for her on a rainy night instead of going out to eat. He does something else, but you’ll have to read the book to find out. In my first novel, Cooking Up Love, the hero, Justin Richardson, flies to Las Vegas to surprise the heroine, Shelbi Arrington, who is there for a conference.

When Shelbi Arrington accepts a position as a food critic in the hopes of burying her medical career and foregoing her residency, the last thing she’s searching for is love. However, that’s just what the doctor ordered especially when she lays eyes on the handsome chef, Justin Richardson. While sorting out her secret conflict of continuing her medical career, she falls for his mouthwatering charm, leaving her hungry for anything he has to offer.
Justin is leery of doctors because a doctor’s negligence caused his mother’s death when he was twelve. He has put his focus and energy into his restaurant, which had been a dream he and his mother shared. Justin is immediately smitten by the cute, sassy food critic that has him cooking up different ways to please her appetite. But when things start to heat up, Shelbi learns of a shocking revelation that could extinguish the flame of their relationship. Will Justin be able to forget his pain and commit to the woman who has stolen his heart?

A retired basketball player, Rasheed is a player on and off the court. When a woman gets too close, he bounces to the next one. But the condition he’s in makes him want a permanent dose of Bria’s love, and he’s ready for the shot.
