Excerpt
Prologue
Alissa
When your whole
world implodes and in the matter of hours and your happily ever after turns to
dust, life sucks.
I’m left holding
the baby. Literally.
The baby being my
eleven-month old daughter, Nora, who knows nothing of her father’s failure to
be a decent husband… man… well human-being really. He’s a shitty person and
that’s all there is to it. Our story started out like your typical fairy-tale.
Goosebumps still prickle my skin when I remember the way he chased me
throughout Senior school, and the years of romance that followed. And the
proposal and wedding? Just call me Cinde-fucking-rella. But my perfect life
came crashing down as quickly as that pink line appeared on the pregnancy test.
Apparently a tired, puffy and hormonal wife didn’t exactly make my husband’s
dick stand to attention. So, in a move I can only imagine was driven by his
little head (and I do mean little,) he decided my ex-best friend was a better
option.
That’s right I said
ex because before she did the dirty with my husband she was the best friend. I
told her everything, confided in her and cried on her shoulder about my
non-existent sex life and all the while her own sex life was heating up with my
husband. Weekends away on ‘business trips’ and doing all the things a wife
should be doing with her husband. Except she was his slutty side piece with a
big fat mouth and a huge spent pussy the whole football team had ridden so
often they called her the local bike.
Yeah, I’m bitter
and I don’t care. I’ve been wronged by the two people I trusted the most. Now
I’m a single mother with no social life to speak of, and my only conversation
is in baby gobbledegook. I actually look forward to the delivery woman ringing
the doorbell when I order groceries online. Yeah, I have them delivered. Have
you ever tried juggling a crying baby and a shopping cart while concentrating
on what comfort food you plan to stuff your face with that night while crying
over chick flicks? Yeah, I’m miserable, it’s obvious, right?
Author Bio
I’m a born and bred East Yorkshire lass. Where I still live
with my husband and our children.

A self-confessed night owl, that’s usually when I do my best work, lucky for me
home-schooling my daughter gives me plenty of time to catch up on those
late-night hours writing, although my irrational love of full sugar coke can
help with that too—don’t tell the sugar police.I wrote my first book when my daughter was born back in 2004, but it stayed on
my laptop for years while I worked out what to do with it. Things were sure
different back then, and to be able to publish a manuscript you’d poured your
soul into seemed a far-off dream, one that I didn’t know would ever come true.

While my first book baby festered on my hard drive, I went on to study a
Creative Writing and English degree, while also growing our family with not
only children but more puppies and dog’s than a sane woman should have.

With a degree under my belt, those original characters, tucked safely far away
from sight, still called to me like old friends. Using my new skills and
knowledge I decided to give them the attention they deserved. Forbidden Love is
the result of those long years of maturing and I couldn’t be prouder of how my
first novel turned out.

What began as one story, fifteen years ago, grew to become a series and in 2016
I took the plunge and dove into the indie publishing world releasing Forbidden
Love to feedback that blew my mind.

And here I still am, loving every minute, bringing characters that hold a place
in my heart to life.

All I can do now, is hope you are here to join me for the ride.

I’m here.

against the power Darby holds over me.
She’s mine.

My insistence drives her wild.
She says we’re impossible.
I say she’s wrong.
And I’m going to prove it.

crazy things can be.

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Is there anything hotter than a growly, overprotective
Marine cradling a baby? My melted ovaries don’t think so. 
When you work hard and have the bank account to prove it,
you’re entitled to play hard. I’ve seen some crazy things. I’ve caused some
crazy scenes. And there’s no shame in my game.
But I’m still knocked off my stilettos when an insane chain
of events leads to me inheriting a baby. The craziest part? The baby comes with
a by-the-books, no-nonsense retired Marine who’s so regimented that I wouldn’t
be surprised if he irons his boxer shorts. 
Parenting? Bring it on. I don’t need sleep—I once started my
day with business meetings in Cairo and ended it three days later at a club in
Melbourne. Changing diapers? Please. It can’t be any more challenging than
changing out of Spanx on the back of a moving motorcycle. Training the little guy
to run the family’s real estate empire? He’ll be all our bosses by the time
he’s four.
But living with my new co-guardian? The gruff, muscled,
tattooed former military man who manages to check all my boxes while trying to
sneak under my skin?
He needs to go.
Because the longer he stays, the more layers he’s peeling
off my heart.
But love isn’t something that’s ever diluted my gene pool,
and I like my life just fine without it. I have awesome friends, this adorable
baby and an obscene amount of money. Who needs love? 
Turns out…maybe me.
Crazy for Loving You is a larger-than life ride
through accidental parenthood featuring a fun-loving billionaire playgirl, a
crusty Marine with a gooey center, a horny dolphin, the world’s most obscene
pool, and all the fun you’d expect from a world built by Lucy Score, Claire
Kingsley, Kathryn Nolan, and Pippa Grant.

Excerpt
We walk for what
feels like forever until I see a large sycamore tree in the middle of a field
of purple flowers. It seems out of place, yet perfectly set at the same time.
Kaiden walks over to
it and sits down, leaning his back against the thick trunk. He seems at peace,
which is a new look for him. His body is eased as he stretches his long legs
out without a care in the world.
I stare. Not just at
him, but at the tree. It’s huge with its long branches and bright green leaves
transitioning into yellow and orange and red that give the space a beautiful
kind of life. Lo would have loved this spot. She would have dragged me out and
stayed here until Mama called our names in frantic worry. Lo always wanted to
be free, out in the open, surrounded by trees and plants and animals.
Suddenly, the tears
that had finally stopped falling on the way over begin building again until
everything blurs. Bottom lip trembling, I hear Kaiden’s heavy sigh.
“What’s wrong now?”
I answer silently
what my emotions won’t let me speak aloud.
Lo was buried under a sycamore tree.
