WARNING!! This book has a cliffhanger but don't let that stop you! Inky's story will continue with Cole in late September

Cole Carlyle, successful hotelier, has lived his life on his own terms. 

Burned by a gold digging ex-wife, he never expected to find his soul mate in Anika “Inky” Redding. 

Anika Redding, talented artist, overcame her past to live her life free of shame. Betrayed by people she thought she could trust, the last thing she expected was to find true love in Cole Carlyle. 

Their love for each other has helped them overcome their demons before, but now faced with an unimaginable challenge, Cole must turn to the last person he wants involved in his life, and hope that those demons don’t once again try to swallow them whole. 

Inky and Cole’s romance and passion ignite and in the sequel to “Inky” we follow their journey to overcome their pasts once and for all, while building their love into something everlasting.

Now…..I am a man.
A man who is broken by the stories of the women who come to me.
They are my birds with broken wings.
I help them heal, help them to make them strong, so they can fly free.
Lark changed me. Loved Me. Made Me Strong.
With her, I am free.


I write…
To the girl of the past.
To the girl of my present.
And, the girl of my future.
Dear Dish…
