Release Day! Forbidden: The Soulkeepers + Giveaway!

I can’t believe this day has finally arrived! It’s a walking on air kind of day never to be repeated. There is only one debut novel for a writer, and I’m so happy that mine is Forbidden, a story very close to my heart. Several years ago when I first began writing Forbidden, I had no idea that the paranormal genre was so popular. Big surprise on me! But what got me even more was the never-ending interest in the particular theme of Angels.

“A five star, must-read” from The Best Reviews.com

“A five star, must-read, romance with an alpha hero & kick-ass heroine you’ll fall in love with” I’m in a really happy place when I find a new author and series that just is so darn good that I can’t put the book down.
