stands.
But after my father tells me to marry before he’ll let me take over his

room? Mia.

Desperate and crazy.
It’s the only explanation as to why I’m nauseous, standing outside Maverick Lexington’s door.
I mean, it’s possible the stories about his deck of playing cards—with the words IOU scrawled across the back—are just rumors of the ruthless quid pro quo deals he barters.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

IOUIOU by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fantastic! Not sure what I expected after reading the blurb. But let me tell you that this book was a pleasure, an unpredictable literary surprise.

Falling in love with a book is such an amazing experience but when you can equally adore both main characters, you have the best of the best. As I said a couple of sentences ago, after reading the blurb, I truly couldn’t guess where the premise was taking me. Again, another plus for me in finding a great read. And if those alone aren’t enough reasons to read this winner, read on and I will give you more.

This year thus far has been tough on me physically for a few different reasons, the last being the COVID-19 virus. I know that has affected so many of us in different ways. While I was sick, I was not able to read. I was constantly dizzy and tired. If I even tried to read, the words put me to sleep. More than once one of my family members removed my Kindle from my chest as I slept. To make matters worse, when I was finally able to stay awake long enough to read, I could not focus at all. I wasn’t able to comprehend a single sentence. But I am doing well now and trying to catch up with everything. Reading was a very entertaining and engaging experience. I haven’t read as many 5-star books this year as usual so I was ecstatic reading Kristy Marie’s latest. All the feels and emotions are present. Unpredictability was another. There is some suspense and angst as well as a supportive secondary cast of complex characters that I know Kristy will treat us with books for. Let’s not forget humor, sass, and intense chemistry and attraction. All aspects of this novel were original. IOU is one of my favorite books to date. This author has always given me everything I look for in a novel and this book has that and spades. (no pun intended. You’ll have to read to see what I mean).

I am sorry but I refuse to give you even a hint of what Maverick and Ainsley are up to in this book. One of my favorite aspects of reading was my constant guessing. I promise you will love IOU and highly recommend it to everyone who loves a sassy, but independent heroine and a broody, alpha hero who will keep you glued to every page.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read my review of IOU.

“Ringmaster” by Author Brianna Hale, Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance, is Available NOW! #NewRelease

Title: Ringmaster
Author: Brianna Hale
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 13, 2020
Cover Credit: Maria, Steamy Designs

“I just love how Hale creates these slow burn, angsty stories and then hits you with the climax that leaves you not only hot and bothered, but wanting your own Cale, and your own traveling circus.” ~Goodreads Review (Dani)

“I. Loved. This. Book. A must read! A sexy slow burn written to keep you on the edge of your seat.” ~Goodreads Review (Amanda S.)

Cale has the circus in his blood. As ringmaster and owner of Meriful’s Traveling Circus, his world is the arena, the spectacle and the heat of the spotlight. He looks out for his ragtag troupe of performers as if they’re his family, because after tragedy struck, they are.
 
Ryah’s been battered and bruised by life and is ready to give up. Then Cale finds her, and she runs away to join Meriful’s Traveling Circus and becomes the horseback acrobatics star she’s always dreamed of being.
What ultimately calls to her is Cale’s dangerous knife-throwing act, and the thrill of putting her life in his hands. Soon, she doesn’t want to be just part of his act. Cale’s doing his best to resist the fragile eighteen-year-old. He’s the ringmaster, but lately he’s been wondering…
Who’s running rings around who?
I never would have thought that a stretch of land could say, Go away, you’re not wanted here, but I get the message loud and clear.
I click my tongue, and Jareth breaks into a trot.
There’s a cottage up ahead, and over the sound of Jareth’s clopping hooves I hear a deep voice raised in a shout. Then a high-pitched scream. I clench the reins, drawing Jareth back to a walk, and peer through overgrown bushes to a crumbled and untidy house.
A side door flies open, and a girl with a long, straw-colored plait and a blue sundress dashes outside. She’s barefoot, and she races across the muddy yard and disappears into the stable. Barely a second later, a pale gray horse bursts out into the sunshine, the girl astride its back. Her eyes are wild and she’s clinging to the horse’s mane. For a moment I’m certain she’s going to fall off, because the horse wears no bridle or saddle, but as she races out of the front gate she’s more than secure atop the animal’s back. She gallops straight past me and up the road.
A middle-aged man in a stained T-shirt and with a grizzled gray beard stumbles out the front door, holding a shotgun and yelling at the top of his lungs, “Come back here, you lazy bitch!”
The girl and her horse are already a hundred yards up the road and moving fast.
Realizing he’s too late, the man heads for the stables, still clutching the shotgun. When he heaves down a saddle, the gun catches on the railings and it almost topples him.
I clench my knees around Jareth’s middle. “Yah!
My horse transitions from walk into a gallop, and we race along the road toward the girl. She’s a gray and blue speck on the road ahead, but Jareth is a much bigger, more powerful horse, and soon we’re closing on her. We must sound like thunder bearing down on her.
The laneway curves and the girl disappears from view. When we round the bend, I see her standing up on the horse’s back while it canters, and my mouth falls open in surprise. She’s as sure-footed as Elke and Anouk are on their horses under the big top. The girl holds herself steady for a moment, arms spread, and then vaults up to catch the branch of a tree. She scrambles onto it and disappears into the leaves. The gray horse slows, and at the girl’s whistle it trots away from her hiding place and is hidden among the trees.
I walk Jareth just off the road and wait.
A few minutes later, there’s another whistle. Jareth’s ears swivel toward it as my head turns. Back trots the gray horse and the girl slithers onto its back, all bare legs and wisps of blonde hair.
“Miss,” I call quietly.
The girl tenses and turns frightened eyes on me. She spies Jareth and me standing in the shadows, and tenses to flee.
“Your father is saddling up a horse, and he’s carrying a shotgun. Do you have someplace to go?”
The girl stares at us, frozen with indecision. When I don’t move she relaxes slightly, and her eyes travel over me. “You’re from the circus that passed by a few hours ago.”
I look down at myself. My clothes are plain enough. Black shirt, black jeans, dusty black boots, black jacket. Jareth’s saddle and bridle are decorated with the same gold and crimson trim as the wagons. Even without Jareth I find myself drawing stares when I enter towns and villages, as if people can sense there’s something unusual about me. I’m weathered by the elements and my black hair is down to my collar. I haven’t seen a proper bed or the inside of a house in five months. Maybe it shows.
“Yes,” I say.
She looks longingly up the road in the direction the circus has passed.
I swing my leg over the saddle and slide to the ground. “Dismount and walk a little into the woods with me. We should get out of sight of the road.”
The girl bites her lip, unsure whether she can trust this stranger. As I pat Jareth’s neck, he nuzzles my shirt with his velvet lip. Affectionate, but also curious about whether I’m carrying any sugar cubes.
“Your horse likes you,” the girl says.
I stroke Jareth’s nose. “I like him.”
She leaps lightly down from her horse, as if Jareth’s judge of character is good enough for her. We head into the woods, the girl walking easily over the leaf litter and bracken with bare feet, as if she’s done this dozens of times before. She’s petite and slender, barely coming up to my shoulder, but she possesses wiry strength. Her arms in her short sleeves are well defined, and her legs are muscular. I wonder who taught her acrobatics.
I draw Jareth to a stop in a little clearing, and the girl turns to me. She hasn’t led her horse. It’s followed her, as obedient as a dog.
“The circus was in the field on the other side of the village last night,” she tells me, her eyes flickering over my face.
I nod. Tonight, it will be in another village further south, and in a few weeks more it will be a hundred miles away. We’re crisscrossing our way down the country all summer and will turn back as the season changes.
“Can I come with you?” she asks suddenly. Her fingers are threading through the horse’s mane, tight and anxious. “I can look after horses. I’ve grown up with them all my life. I can be useful.”
She doesn’t seem to know she might be good enough on her horse to perform. As well as being strong and athletic, she’s beautiful, with high cheekbones and wide-spaced, sparkling blue eyes. The only mar to her beauty is a nasty swelling beneath her left eye, which is rapidly turning black.
“How old are you?”
She glances furtively at me, and then away again. “Nineteen.”
“How old are you really?”
“Seventeen.”
 “Did he give you that?” I ask, nodding at the angry purple bruise beneath her eye.
The girl tenses. Other people have asked her this, and if she tells the truth, he’ll hit her again. I wonder if that’s why she’s learned to run and hide. I clench Jareth’s leather reins in my fist. “I won’t let him—”
There’s a crashing sound up ahead in the woods, and the gray horse tenses. A furious male voice echoes through the trees. It’s all too much for the horse, and she suddenly rears and bolts.
“Dandelion!” the girl cries in anguish. She puts two fingers in her mouth and whistles, but this time the horse doesn’t obey. Horses sense evil, and Dandelion seems like she wants to put as much distance between herself and this girl’s father as possible.
I can see the man now, mounted on a bay horse and fighting his way through the underbrush to get to us. The girl wraps her arms around her shaking body and starts to cry. She doesn’t even try to run. It’s like she’s got nowhere to run to.
I put my foot into a stirrup and swing up onto Jareth. I reach down my hand for her. “Come on.”
The despair in the girl’s eyes changes to elation. Gasping in relief, she clutches my hand and I pull her up behind me.
The man sees us, and roars and raises his shotgun, but we’re out of range. I watch him for a moment, committing his face to memory. Letting him see me, too, the man who’s taking his daughter.
I want him to see me.
Then I wheel Jareth around. We canter though the woods, my horse finding natural paths through the trees. Friesians were bred to be warhorses, and while they’re big and strong enough to carry a knight in full armor, they’re also swift and sure-footed.
“I thought you were going to leave me behind,” the girl gasps, wrapping her arms around my waist and holding on. We emerge from the trees onto a laneway, and I turn Jareth southwards and urge him into a gallop.
“What’s your name?” I call over the sound of Jareth’s thundering hooves. That clumsy bastard will still be fighting his way through the bracken.
“Ryah.”
Ryah. What a pretty name. I look down at her small hands encircling my waist.
“What’s your name?” she asks.
“Cale. Cale Hearn of Meriful’s Traveling Circus.” Cale Hearn who’s just snatched a teenage girl right from under her father’s nose. I wonder if this is kidnapping. I wonder if he’ll send the police after me or arrive to take her back himself. He’s welcome to fucking try.
Ryah nestles closer and rests her cheek against my back. “Pleased to meet you, Cale Hearn of Meriful’s Traveling Circus. Thank you for helping me run away.”
I find myself smiling as we thunder down the road. “My pleasure, Ryah.”
There’s nothing Brianna Hale likes more than a large, stern alpha male with a super-protective and caring streak, and when she’s not writing about them she can usually be found with a book, a cocktail, planning her next trip to a beautiful location or attending the theatre. She believes that pink and empowerment aren’t mutually exclusive, and everyday adventures are possible. Brianna lives in London.

Synopsis:

Hot Navy SEALs? Check
A secret baby? Check
Finding love the second time around? Check

The Navy SEAL’s Secret Baby
When curvy Sophie Chambers walks in on her boyfriend cheating on her, she drowns her sorrows in tequila. Lots and lots of tequila. When she wakes the next morning in bed with a man who’s name she can’t remember, she does the only thing she can…run.

Navy SEAL David Marshall is celebrating his retirement when he stumbles across the woman he’s been dreaming about for two years. The attraction is still hotter than ever. When she drops a bomb on him, he’s determined she won’t get away this time. Not when she’s the mother of his child.

A Second Chance at Love
Callie Foster never expected to feel such a strong connection to the sexy former SEAL her friend introduced her to. She only thought about having a little fun now that she’d regained her confidence after surviving an abusive relationship. Except he pushed her away.

Kyle Harper barely survived the war, returning home with one less limb. He begins a brief affair with a gorgeous nurse, but breaks it off knowing it won’t go anywhere. She’ll only leave him like everyone else in his life. When he runs into her a few weeks later, he realizes what a fool he was.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

SEALs in LoveSEALs in Love by L.K. Shaw

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There are two standalone novellas within this book. While the characters are all present in the first book as a way of introduction, their stories are separate and unrelated. I equally enjoyed both stories. Some of my favorite tropes include ex-military. These characters have a good amount of baggage and that makes the story more complex and the endings even more delicious.

Four people believing they aren’t destined to find love. Each has a bit of baggage but nothing too heavy. The heroines are somewhat insecure and hesitant to allow themselves to take down the walls around their hearts. The heroes, specifically Kyle, is very protective of his heart. When the four of them come together. each in their own ways, they all realize they found something special. But the real question is…..will they be brave enough to take a chance on forever or risk losing the best thing to ever happen to them.

There is not a lot of character development because of the short length of the individual novellas. The attractions are instant and strong. That said, I enjoyed how the author drew out the relationship development a bit so the book didn’t have that stereotypical lust/love at first sight feeling. At least it didn’t for me. In addition, there is some angst and emotional feels. Each couple had a different story which did not tie into the other. I also appreciated that individuality. One more plus for me is that I discovered a new author that I will definitely check out in the near future.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Blurb
A lust
story. Only meant to be temporary.
A love
story. Always meant to be permanent.
A hate
story. Never meant to be.
This…

Nicole
It started
in an elevator in California. Our lust story.
You know,
the kind you know going in is a bad idea, but… the nagging desire and all. A
few drinks in the hotel bar across from our workplace. A few nights in a luxury
suite twenty floors above. What could it hurt?
Innocent
fun would be had by all, and I’d walk away a well-satisfied woman. Ready to
continue my life of brokenhearted loneliness.    
Grady
It started
on a ridge in Afghanistan. Our love story.
You know,
the kind you felt in your soul at first sight, but… the tragic circumstances
and all. Intentionally casual conversation over Irish whiskey. Intentionally
casual sex over the course of two weeks. How could I refuse?
Guilt-ridden
bonds would be built, and I’d confess my darkest sin. Beg for forgiveness five
years overdue and clean my conscience along with it.
It started
with the cold hard truth. Our hate story.
You know,
the kind that could end a surprisingly beautiful beginning.

Excerpt

 

Ten minutes after he agreed, Nicole found herself standing
inside a deluxe suite at the Hyatt, their tryst beginning in the lap of luxury.
It would end here too, but only after she’d had her fill of
him and/or thirteen days had passed, whichever came first. Based on the way
that gray t-shirt stretched across his broad shoulders, and if there were
tattoos and tan lines under it, she’d run out of time before she ran out of
desire.  
Backing her up against the hotel room door, Grady leaned in
but didn’t touch her, only locking the deadbolt and flipping the security bar,
the sound loud in the hushed darkness of the room.
“You sure about this?” His masculinity surrounded her, warm
and wicked. His height dwarfed her, tall and tantalizing.  
“Yes,” she whispered. “Are you?”
“No,” he choked out, his voice gravelly. “No, I’m not sure.
But there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”
They’d never been this close before, but if she’d known his
strength was so powerful, his scent so heady, his size so commanding, she’d
have cornered him weeks ago. Probably humped his camo-panted leg like a dog in
heat.
Well, he’d better be ready. She was about to be unleashed.
Which was to say, he’d be on the receiving end of her largely limited—and
significantly rusty—sexual repertoire.
Comparing herself to the animalistic dynamo that was a
female canine in heat was her ego talking. Oh, she could get the job done, no
doubt about it, but Grady might not be so impressed he’d hire her again, if you
caught her drift.
Thirteen days might turn into a one-and-done situation.
But luckily, she’d made that quick drugstore run during her
lunch break yesterday, so she was fully prepared. Condoms, a Lady Bic razor and
shaving gel, and a king-sized Kit Kat bar completed her purchase. The condoms
were a necessity—safety first, ’cause that’s how ole Nicole rolled. The razor
because, between the two of them, he should be the only one with stubble. The
chocolate was simply because she hadn’t had sex in a longer timespan than your
average bad-credit car loan, and that fact would make any girl self-medicate.
Thankfully she’d had the foresight to buy a half dozen candy
bars and wasn’t ashamed to admit she’d powered one down just prior to stalking
him via the elevator tonight.  
Chocolate might give her cellulite, but it also gave her
courage. Courage she desperately needed, because right about now, she was
feeling like a born-again virgin.
Unsure. Unsteady. And unprepared for the sight he was about
to bestow upon her.
Bare, muscled skin.
Their suite was several stories high, the only glow in the
room from the small lamp on the nightstand and that of a thousand twinkling
lights from the surrounding downtown buildings. The panoramic floor to ceiling
windows offered an amazing view, day or night, and though the drapes were drawn
open to the outside world, they were cocooned inside by the soft radiance of a
single bulb.
The only people on earth.
Moving deeper into the room, his eyes barely left hers as he
tugged his t-shirt off, lazily dropping it to the floor.
My god.
There were tattoos. Plural. And in nearly the exact location
of her fantasies.
The letter F was inked over his left pec
muscle, a single initial monogrammed in an Old English decorative script. F for
Foster. Underneath that same glorious pec muscle was a short verse, in a
cleaner, simpler font, that wrapped horizontally around his torso toward his
back.
It was too dark in the room for her to read the words, but
that task was now on the tippy top of her To-Do list.
What she could read was the larger quote tattooed along the
right side of his collar bone. De oppresso liber. To
liberate the oppressed. The motto of the United States Army Special Forces.
Don’t ask her how she knew that. It wasn’t a fun tale to
tell.
“What’s going through that pretty head of yours?”
Swallowing, she regained the use of language. “That I wanna
lick your tattoos.”
A smartass grin graced his beautifully sculpted mouth.
“Damn. Should’ve tattooed my dick.”
The button on his pants popped, the slide of his zipper
letting loose a hoard of butterflies in her stomach when he opened the placket.
Dark shadows hid his best asset, his intention only to relieve the pressure,
not release the beast. 
He needn’t worry. She wanted to lick that too.

Author Bio
My love for
steamy romance began when I was in junior high. A friend and I noticed a
dumpster of discarded paperbacks behind our local dime store. Covers missing
and each book split down the spine, I scanned the pages for any love or lust
words—and curse words, too. From that point on, I scoured the public library
and the paperback racks at every store, reading anything labeled romance. I said
a tearfully grateful goodbye to Judy Bloom, and Jackie Collins began ruling my
world.
I live with
my high school sweetheart husband in the desert Southwest. Awesome in the
winter, not so much in the summer.
My life
long goals are to think before I speak, smile more and swear less, and actually

Synopsis:

Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.

Julian was the boy next door. My brother’s best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start.

Until everything changed.

Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother’s death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be.

Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn’t the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I’d never noticed.

Not on another person.

Not on another man.

Not until him

Without YouWithout You by Marley Valentine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely amazing! This author blew me away and that doesn’t surprise me one single bit. Marley Valentine can write heartbreak like no body’s business. This, hands down, is my favorite book of hers. Brilliantly written with such obvious attention to detail. The author takes this story to a colossal level of poignancy and you have to wonder, because of that, how will she give us the happy ending we desire. Well, she accomplishes that and so much more. Without You is an unforgettable story of two amazingly beautiful people. Behind their broken and tormented hearts are two men who deserve the world. And while they will find love, loyalty, and undoubtedly happiness, Deacon and Julian’s journeys a very difficult one.

While you can infer much of the premise from the synopsis, there is so much more going on mentally and even morally. Guilt is heavy within Deacon and Julian’s hearts and the path they need to traverse is difficult as well as unfamiliar. While the relationship development is a slow burn, it needed to be that way for this book to be believable.

I am being purposely vague with my review as there is so much complexity and depth to this story. I will not ruin any of it for you. If you have read any books from Marley Valentine before, then you know she will give you an amazingly written story with all the feels. If you haven’t read her books before, I highly recommend that you do; whether you are a fan of MM Romance or not. This book was very far from smut. It was beautiful.

One more element I want to add is that once I started this book, I knew it was one I wanted to savor and not devour. I purposely took my time reading it over the course of a few days so it could be with me longer. I cried in relief and happiness after reading the last page. And I was so disappointed when the book was finished. That said, I know I will carry Deacon and Julian in my hearts for a long time coming. It won’t be easy to replace these characters.

Marley Valentine…..thank you for such an incredibly, touching and heartwarming novel!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Coming April 21st, 2020: “Dirty 30” by Author Caisey Quinn, Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance.

 

 

Title: Dirty 30
Author: Caisey Quinn
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Impeccable Designs

Release Date: April 21, 2020

 

Blurb
Meredith Knight is at the top of her game.
As the lead evening anchor on her local news affiliate,
she’s successful and in love…
with her job.
So what if I thought I’d be married with two
kids and a white picket 
fence by now? I have my friends, my family, an
amazing penthouse 
apartment, and I’m in the best shape of my
life.
Just ask the photographer of my birthday
boudoir photoshoot.
Turning thirty is going to be a piece of cake.
Okay, I’ll admit, there is one thing missing
from 
my near-perfect life. My co-anchor, Jack
Stone, has never seen me 
as anything more than a colleague. But I’ve
been falling for him since 
the day we met.  So when my friends throw me an epic birthday
bash, 
I make a secret wish when I blow out my
candles.
Let Jack see me.
Just as my birthday wish comes true, in the most embarrassing way possible, our station hires a
new 
producer who’s determined to ruin my life.
Killian O’Malley is hot and tattooed with an
Irish 
accent that makes me weak in the knees, and,
uh, 
some other places. Too bad he’s also an
arrogant, 
domineering jerk.
Turning 30 is turning out to be a hell of a lot harder than I expected…
Excerpt

“Ice cream
solves everything.”
Killian
looks at me as if I’ve declared that the moon is made of whipped cream. “How do
you figure?”
“Because
it’s sinfully sweet and just cold enough to block out anything painful.” I lick
my spoon slowly, savoring the last of the salty caramel sauce with my tongue.
His gaze falls to my mouth and I see it—a hunger in his eyes almost as intense
as the irritation I’m accustomed to.
Killian
O’Malley thinks I have cotton candy for brains, but it isn’t my brain he’s
concerned with at the moment.
He swallows
thickly, his cobalt blue eyes never leaving mine. “So ice cream is the cure for
war, world hunger, and global warming then?” He’s mocking me but I’m getting
used to this patronizing tone from him.
Shrugging,
I pluck the cherry from my sundae and lick it clean before eating it.
“No, but
with all the bad in the world don’t we deserve something sweet? Something
wholly indulgent to lose ourselves in—even if only for a little while?” I take
another bite while he contemplates this. My tone is light but my words appear
to weigh heavily on him. The cold on my tongue shocks my senses, blissfully
numbing my mind for a split second. “Besides, how could anyone be upset about
anything with all this goodness and perfection in their mouth?”
Smirking,
his features contort from hostile man to mischievous boy. I’ve never seen this
expression on him before. It’s jarring—alarmingly sexy and unsettling.
So low I can
barely make out his words, he dips his head and arches one dark brow. “That’s
what she said.”

Title: Burning Love

Author: Elizabeth Lynx

She always worked alone. He refused to trust anyone with his business. One road trip later and they’d be at each other’s throats… making out.
If Bea Love did one thing well, it was landing any client no matter how much they put up a fight. She was charming but tough, smart but always willing to do what was best for the client. She won them over every time.
Until she met the most stubborn, overly demanding, and sexiest man of her life. Spending the next few weeks with him would be tough but the worst part–trying not to drool over his arms.
There’s one thing Mica Angrov knew to be true, outsiders weren’t trustworthy. He had a perfectly good business in a small town selling his coffee beans to local businesses. It kept a roof over his family’s head and let him help raise his niece.
When a beautiful woman from the city showed up in his home ready to make him an offer too good to be true, he took one look at her and kicked her out. He realized he made a mistake when a doctor explained his niece needed help. He needed that money from the flashy deal the city woman promised for his niece.
After agreeing to travel hundreds of miles and spend weeks with her to land the deal he wondered if the trip would be one big disaster? Or would he end up giving her multiple orgasms like he kept dreaming about?

 

 
Elizabeth Lynx writes romcoms with a lot of steam and characters you’ll be mad aren’t actually real. She has worn many hats in life: mother, wife, photographer, graphic designer, executive assistant, and used to print pictures for the White House. For the past several years, she’s decided to put down on paper all the crazy voices in her head. Surprisingly, those voices did some really naughty things.
