Theory of Deviance

Deviance is unacceptable. It’s taboo. And it’s the one thing he’s always wanted.
Portland Rebels
, Book 3

Painful shyness isn’t the only reason Mikey Pelletier is a twenty-five-year-old virgin. Between working for his parents and volunteering at his church, he neither has the time nor the inclination to admit his bisexuality to the world—or to himself.

A visit from Krissy Porter will hopefully fix everything. After three months of chatting with her, Mikey’s got one carefully planned week to win her heart and lose his V-card. He’s hoping he can pull it off, even with her roommate along for the ride.

Krissy has been drawn to Mikey for a while. He’s so easygoing, she thinks he could be the calm in her storm. But there’s an extra complication when she comes to visit: her friend-with-benefits, “hetero-flexible” roommate, Rafe.

During a week of revelations, intimacy, and kink, Krissy and Rafe become the angel and devil on Mikey’s shoulders, tempting him in different directions. And all three of them discover that a week of pure deviance can lead to the most uncontrollable emotion of all: love.

Warning: This book contains innocent board game-playing that takes a sexy turn, use of recreational substances, back-door action, and some smokin’ hot threesomes. Plus, scenes of inner-demon slaying. Fans and tissues advised.

Tell us what you are passionate about outside of writing.

I love writing. It’s my outlet, the place I get to be creative, where I get to create imaginary people and play with them in imaginary worlds. Outside of writing, however, I am extremely passionate about health and fitness.

Several years ago, I was terribly overweight. The third generation of my family to fight obesity, I never learned healthy habits, and discovered one day when shopping for a new pair of jeans that I could no longer fit into mainstream stores. Realizing that I would need to start shopping in plus-size stores, I sat on a dressing room floor and sobbed, then went home and made the decision to change my habits. I began making small changes to my lifestyle, both in terms of eating and exercise. I started looking at food as something to fuel me, not something to do when I was bored or reach for when I was upset. It took a while but little bit little, the weight came off. I shed eighty pounds, and have successfully kept it off for ten years.

Now I make sure to keep up with a healthy lifestyle, and I share my passion about it with others. I work part time at a family recreation center, which is not only a gym but also the only medically integrated fitness facility in the state. I track my meals using MyFitnessPal, and try to keep to a low carb, high protein diet (although I do have a sweet tooth, and make sure to allow myself the occasional splurge!) I also work out daily, whether it be running (I’m training for a 10k in the fall), boxing, spinning, weight training or Pilates. I am excited about trying anything new, and am currently on the hunt for a good cardio ballet class.

Not only does exercise help me maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay at my goal weight—it’s also where I get some of my best ideas. When I am stuck on a scene, I know it’s time to work out. It gets me out of my head and wholly into my body, and that is always when the ideas flow. Because I am so passionate about this, I always end up including it in my writing. All my characters are dedicated to some kind of exercise. In The Duality Principle, Gabriella hikes. Jamie in The Hierarchy of Needs is a swimmer. In His Contract, Jack plays tennis while Lilly runs. And in my upcoming release, The Theory of Deviance, Krissy is a dancer who also practices yoga. I love talking about my journey to a healthy lifestyle, so feel free to chat with me on Facebook or Twitter about it!

The Duality Principle
The Portland Rebels Book 1




Sometimes A + B = O. Yes. Oh, yes. Just like that.

Gabriella Evans’s life exists in terms of logic and definitions. She’s holed up in Portland, Maine, for the summer to work on her PhD thesis, but something is screwing up her concentration: the rumble of a motorcycle every time the embodiment of her rough-and-tumble fantasies rides down her street.

When her best friend talks her into a blind date, she finds herself out with the opposite of her fantasy. He’s polite and well-mannered, yet something behind his crisply tailored shirt doesn’t add up—a rebellious gleam in his eye that piques her curiosity.

Orphaned at fifteen, Connor Starks has finally put the years of failing grades, breaking laws and breaking hearts behind him. The only holdover? His penchant for getting down and dirty in public places. But Gabriella makes him want to prove he’s become a better man.

Nothing intrigues Gabriella more than a problem she can’t solve. But the more Connor tries to bury his past, the more determined she is to uncover it. And what she finds makes all her trusty logic begin to fail her…

Warning: This book contains a summer romance, dirty talk, dockside kissing, motorcycles and tattoos. Features a rebellious nerdy girl with an appetite for outdoor sex and light spanking, and a bad boy who’s turned good…or at least he’s trying.

The Hierarchy of Needs

Portland Rebels Book 2




Jamie Matthews is stuck in a rut. After hitting a wall with her dream career, she’s back in her hometown, living a life as monotonous as swimming laps in the neighborhood pool.

Being surrounded by her perfect brothers is a painful reminder of her failure to launch. The last bonfire of the summer is an ideal way to let off steam, especially when she runs into Dean Trescott, the playboy friend she had one hot-as-hell night with back in high school.

Since the day Dean met Jamie, he’s loved her beauty, talent, and smile that lit up the whole damn block. But dating isn’t an option. She has a bright future ahead of her, and he refuses to chain her to his—helping run the family business that’s barely staying afloat.

A “what-happens-in-Vegas” weekend was supposed to get their craving for each other out of their systems. But neither counted on the past repeating itself, drawing them together in even hotter and dirtier ways and dangling the possibility they might both be able to get exactly what they need…

Warning: A friends-to-lovers twice over story that contains some hot ’n’ heavy kissing in the waves, hair pulling, and a man who knows how to use his hands. It may also feature a few practical jokes—only the fun kind, of course.
