~ People come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime ~

A Reason…

Questioning her relationship with a man who worships politics more than her, Shayla Clemmins escapes reality for the seductive sunsets of Greece. There she finds exactly what she didn’t know was missing from her life, but fears she’ll lose him to her past.

A Season…

John Mathews works hard and plays even harder. When he finds a new passion in the sensual warmth of Greece, he discovers that one lust-filled weekend of romance is just not enough.

A Lifetime…

With Shayla’s past catching up to her and an anonymous threat to her future, can she and John make a lifetime together?


Shayla's Story coverEXCERPT:

The unusually warm weather made for the perfect day for exploring. Tracy and JC talked nonstop on the short drive toward the village. They’d traveled to Greece over the summer and shared everything they loved and learned about the Greek culture, architecture, and mythical history.

Shayla stopped at an overlook where a group of locals gathered at a cliff top.

JC squealed with delight, bolting down the path, not bothering to wait for anyone else. The only words Shayla could make out were Greek gods.

“Greek gods?” Shayla inquired, heading down a narrow path etched along the cliff.

Tracy rolled her eyes. “Our little sister is boy crazy.”

“Oh,” Shayla managed.

“She doesn’t have a lot of boyfriends,” Tracy clarified, sounding as if she didn’t want to give the assumption that her sister was easy. “She just—”

“Flirts.” John darted an unhappy stare toward JC and a group of four healthy good looking young men.

“I’d say flirting runs in the family.” Shayla snickered under her breath. Charm and arrogance ran ramped in her line of work, and John Mathews reeked of it.

“Ha!” Tracy lifted her hand for a high-five. “She’s got your number, brother.”

He scoffed, throwing his head back with an eye roll. A sexy laugh filled with playful arrogance escaped him. “Not yet she doesn’t.”

Shayla flushed and for a moment forgot how to breathe. She swallowed. “I don’t need to find you a pair of boxing gloves, do I?” she chided.

“Only if you want to take me on.”
