When No One Is Watching

This sizzling summer thriller starts on low and heats up fast. Smart, sexy, and surprising, this suspenseful novel revealing the underbelly of urban gentrification will keep readers reading late into the night. [See “Turn the Page: Editors’ Fall Picks,” LJ 8/20.]

An Unconditional Freedom

A heroine torn by conflicting loyalties and a vengeance-driven hero haunted by the past struggle to come to terms with reality and their feelings in this emotionally compelling, information-rich story. Very nicely done. Cole (A Hope Divided) divides her time between New York City and Martinique. [An editor's pick, p. 22; previewed in Kathryn Howe's "Love Changes Everything," LJ 10/15/18.]

A Duke by Default

Recommended where patrons like contemporary happily ever afters. ["A lively, upbeat escapade rich with humor and heart": LJ 8/18 review of the Avon pap.]

A Duke by Default

Portia is a sharp, mature protagonist whose quest for self-improvement will resonate with readers (as will her issues with comparing herself to others)

A Princess in Theory

Upbeat, sexy, and totally engrossing, this fast-paced modern romp puts an intriguing spin on the classic long-lost-heiress plot and launches the series in style. Cole (A Hope Divided) divides her time between the Caribbean and New York City. [Previewed in Joyce Sparrow's "Love Is All Around," LJ 10/15/17.]

A Hope Divided

An Extraordinary Union

Courageous, passionate protagonists fight for justice, freedom, and the right to love in an exceptional story that both educates and entertains and beautifully launches a unique series. Cole (Mixed Signals) lives in the Caribbean.

Mixed Signals

Maggie's simultaneous naïveté and darkness mirror the civilization rebuilding throughout this series, even as she struggles to balance the two. [Xpress Reviews, 9/18/15.]

Radio Silence

Cole (Eagle's Heart) adds a strong contender to the postapocalyptic romance genre with a smart, confident African American heroine and a smart, sexy Korean hero in this first book in a trilogy. Recommended; public libraries should plan to buy the three titles to find out the answers to the source of the blackout.
