Levi Warner is an established, older man—wealthy, powerful, and above all, respectable. Then Levi meets Daisy, an uninhibited 24-year-old dance instructor and artist, not exactly the kind of woman Levi is accustomed to. But the young, free spirit, brings out something in him he only experienced in fantasies. When their scorching affair turns into something unexpectedly deeper, Levi finds himself torn between preserving his reputation, and exploring a wilder and much more satisfying kind of life.


So I wrote this series of books. People seemed to really like them. And then it was time to move on. Not because I didn’t care about my Brown Siblings books anymore, but because there were other stories that I wanted to tell.

But I have been working around the edges of writing family type saga for a while and I decided to jump in with both feet this time and write saga style over more than just one series.

The Delicious series is a spin off of The Brown Siblings books. Each one – SWAY, TART and LUSH will feature characters you met in the last Brown Siblings book, NEVER ENOUGH.

Over the course of these books you’ll get to know the group of friends that call themselves Delicious. Gillian Forrester’s best friends, Daisy, Jules and Mary and through them, you’ll meet their men.  But at the same time, you’ll be reading about Gillian and Adrian’s engagement party and wedding, you’ll see Erin and her men, Brody and Elise and their baby girl, Martine. You’ll see Gillian, of course as she’s part of Delicious and because of her, you’ll also see Adrian and Miles.

I wanted this spin off to be a companion to the Brown Siblings so you had that sense of homecoming with the characters you already loved and got to know new ones too. It enabled me to also write the characters I’ve come to love as well!

Sway is out today in the CHERISHED duology with me and Maya Banks. It’s the first book in the new series and features Daisy – artist, dancer, friend, daughter and lover. She meets a man she can’t resist, Levi Warner, and he does his share of not being able to resist her. They challenge each other and through all the highs and lows, it’s Daisy’s family of her heart who get her through.

I hope you all enjoy this new leg of the journey I started with Laid Bare and my Brown Siblings books and I hope you enjoy reading about Levi and Daisy as much as I enjoyed writing them.
