Book One of the series: Bad Boys Don't Drink the Water

NaNoWriMo 2012 Winner. This story featuring Cynthia "Sam" Cainwright and Carolina Rodriguez grew and grew becoming two separate novels. Carolina is featured in Tempted by Trouble released April 1, 2013 by Crimson Romance. 

Picture Perfect is soon to be released later this month.

With a toss of a coin, Rob promised her one thing: a good time, not a long time. And so advised, Sam gambled with her future.

A woman is thrust into the position of being the son her father never had until her world becomes too much to bear. Freedom comes with a cost.

Rob Graham and Sam Cainwright have dreams, but what it takes to follow each tears them apart.

Years later they are reunited by chance.

The secret Sam desperately sought to keep from Rob is unleashed. His angry reaction is swift and immediate pushing them apart into the arms of attorneys.

Now at odds, Sam and Rob must confront a rocky future...together.
This time there's more on the table than a rocking good time.

Rob's photo shoot to the Sahara looms, and Sam sees his exotic locales as an escape route no different than before.

Can they negotiate rough terrain when raw emotions threaten to tear them apart...again?

Love tastes sweeter the second time around.

An Excerpt

“Don’t go there.” She continued, “Look, I’m sorry things didn’t work out, but you were the one who left in a hurry, never looking back.” She cocked her head. “Now…it’s my turn.”
         Something snapped inside him. She wasn’t going to just walk away, out of his life. Not this time, regardless of who was doing the walking.
