When you throw punches, sometimes life throws one back…
Ten years ago, Chance Hanlon and Ximena Ibarra were the hottest couple in town. Then a tragedy broke them up and changed their lives. Chance headed for the octagon while Ximena spent her days trying to recover.
When Ximena’s father dies, the couple comes face-to-face. Keeping the memories hidden isn’t working for her. It’s definitely not working for Chance, but he refuses to walk away. This time he’s ready to fight for something more important than a title or a belt.
Will the fighter be victorious outside of the ring in the only battle that matters?
I like my romance the way I like my coffee…dark! But I also like throwing in a twist and tossing in a little suspense and adventure for good measure.
My characters are far from perfect. Some of them have flaws so large that they’re really obstacles. But somehow, those who love them find a way to deal with each and every quirk.
I like openings that draw you in. That make you wonder what the heck is going on. If I can find an emotional edge? Bingo!
Fighting for Mine
On the day we buried Papa, I didn’t focus on the mahogany casket with its elegant lines nor the meticulously dressed mourners. No. The most striking, most brilliant object—a three-carat blinding oval-cut diamond—sat on my finger. Robert Westmore, the man who put it there, failed to attend. He was on yet another business trip. Despite being surrounded by my family, I felt utterly alone and ashamed. Because of my tragic accident, I didn’t come to El Domingo often.
