The mob. A mole. Murder.

In a matter of seconds, Charlotte Mae’s life fell apart. Now her boyfriend’s lifeless eyes haunt her dreams, and she carries the blame for her father’s death.

When she’s forced to return to work in NOLA, it’s under the watchful eye of bodyguard and former Navy SEAL, Carter Fortier.

With the mob determined to tie up loose ends, Carter must make dangerous alliances and depend on his brothers-in-arms to have his back. But the danger Charlotte Mae poses to his heart is one complication he doesn’t account for.

Can two damaged hearts find love while fighting for their lives, or will the forces working to silence them succeed in ending more than just their budding romance?

Early readers are loving Izzy’s story! I can’t tell you how excited I am to know this. Every release fills me with the jitters, worried you’ll hate my work. Reading reviews can be a dangerous thing as not everyone will enjoy my books and that’s okay. Knowing it’s okay doesn’t stop the emotions, but it is okay.

To celebrate the positive response here is an EXCERPT to Unlucky in Love:

“How many fucking frogs do I have to kiss?” I snap and fall on the couch.

Val raises her glass of wine out of the way, and I steal it. I close my eyes as the large gulp I’ve taken runs down my throat.

“That’s mine!”

I glare at her before taking another sip and handing it back. “Thanks.”

Leaning my head against the back of the couch, I sigh. I despise dating. I’m over it. Why can’t I find my Mr. Right, so we can start our lives together?

Val wraps her arm around my shoulder and pulls me to her. I lay my head on her and stare at the TV, not really paying attention to whatever she’s watching.

“What happened, honey?”

“Everything. Nothing,” I whisper, exhausted from another emotional roller coaster. “I’m just over it all. All these fuckers,” I say, raising my locked phone. “All they want is a quick hookup. Which, sure I could see the appeal if they didn’t show up in popped collars or hopped up on ’roids.”

I decided to start dating again two months ago. At first, I sat back and observed the wink emojis and messages that came through the app. Tonight, I relented to coffee with Tristan. We’d chatted daily for about a week, so I figured why not? I mean, he was cute and seemed nice.

“What was wrong with this one?” Val asks as she mutes the TV. “Did he not look like his picture?”

I sigh. “No, he matched the picture, dimples and all. He’s cute—not hard to look at him.”

“So what happened?”

“I arrived a few minutes early and found a table in the corner. I’ve been reading the book you suggested, so I wanted to finish it. I figured it would help me relax. Tristan got there about five minutes late. Not a biggie since I was reading. He spotted me and asked what I was drinking before buying me another one.” I lift my head and smile at Val. “It was really sweet.” Placing my head back on her shoulder, I continue. “We sat and chatted for about an hour. He told me a little about growing up in California, and I told him about growing up here in Vegas. You know, all the simple get-to-know-you things we hadn’t already talked about yet. He heard my stomach growl. It was so embarrassing, Val. Anyway, he suggested we go to the diner around the corner. I was having a nice time with him, so why not?”

“Everything sounds like it was going great for a first date,” Val said.

I nod. “It was. Tristan asked for a booth and slid in next to me. You know, like those old-timey movies? Having him so close made me nervous in a good kind of way. I liked what I was seeing from him, so feeling his body next to mine was great.”

“Until?” Val asks, sensing I’m beating around the bush.

“Until after our meal when his hand landed on my thigh.”

“Oh?”

“Yup, it surprised me; you know, moving a little fast. But my creeper alarm wasn’t going off. When I didn’t say anything, he turned and kissed me. It was an overall good first kiss. Sweet, not pushy, no slobber. You name it.” I sigh. “He ends the kiss and wraps his arm around me, which was okay. We talked a little more and then he kisses me again.” I can’t say the words. Anger bubbles up, and I jump to my feet. “Ugh!”

“Izzy, what the hell happened?” Val asks, leaning forward, her forehead creasing with worry.

I meet her eyes. Val is my best friend, and I love her like she’s a blood relative. She has always been there when I needed her, and right now is one of those times.

“But then, well—then his other hand inched up toward my crotch and he said, ‘Let’s go to the bathroom and fuck.’”

Val sends me a blank stare and blinks. “Let’s go to the bathroom and fuck?”

I nod.

“And you told him what?”

“Well, at first I was in shock. Nothing at all in the three hours with him led me to believe he was an asshole who was just trying to get in my pants.”

Val clucks her tongue. “Oh, young grasshopper… Every guy wants into a woman’s pants. The good ones and the bad ones.”

TAXED BY LOVE

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Blurb:

Love was in the air and Gabrielle wasn’t interested. Even if she was willing to risk her heart again, which she wasn’t, any man would have to get past her overbearing brother first.

Andrew was unashamed of his love of women… until he found himself yearning for what his friends had found—love and family. When a gorgeous woman caught his eye at a buddy’s wedding reception, he blindly followed, unable to resist her allure.

Their encounter was meant to be no-strings fun, but months later, Gabrielle couldn’t get him out of her mind. Andrew regretted never getting her name or number, leaving them both with only memories and unanswered desires.

An unexpected reunion brought the couple to St. Fleur, where trouble had been stirring for their friends and family. Can Andrew persuade Gabrielle to take a risk on a playboy? Or will tragedy jeopardize their chance at love?

〣 ABOUT THE BOOK 〣

Rocco St. Martin stuns the people of St. Fleur when he shows up at Whiskey’s Pub with a black eye. The whispers only become worse when he’s spotted in handcuffs, exiting Deputy Sheriff JJ’s cruiser.

JJ is left with more questions than answers after Rocco refuses to say what happened. Since the stubborn man won’t take her help, she has to resort to keeping a closer eye on him.

When the details of his injuries come to light, will Rocco finally accept her help? Or will he be yet another man who doesn’t understand what it takes to be with a cop?

〣 EXCERPT 〣

“You’re staring,” she told him.

Rocco shrugged. “How are you?”

“I’m good.” She tilted her head. “What’s going on?”

“Why does anything have to be going on?” he asked, curious to see if she’d admonish him. When a smile tipped the corner of her mouth, Rocco smirked.

JJ lifted her glass and drank. Rocco watched the column of her neck as she swallowed and imagined kissing his way down all that fair skin. He shifted in his seat, placing his ankle on his knee to see if that would ease the pressure forming in his pants.

“Well, for one, you’ve never sat with me for a meal,” JJ said as she put the glass on the table.

Rocco nodded. “True, and you’ve never felt the need to drive by the garage ten times a day.”

A blush covered her cheeks and swept down her neck. The color only highlighted her beauty and made his mind consider other ways he could make her turn that red. He was a rat bastard. He shouldn’t have embarrassed her like that. “I’m sorry.”

She shrugged. “Don’t be. It’s true. I’ve been worried about you.” The words came out whisper soft and he almost missed them.

The waitress returned with his food, and he sat forward. “Why?”

“Why what?”

“Why are you worried about me?” Her concern touched him, and he had to stop himself from rubbing his chest. Rocco was the oldest child. He wasn’t accustomed to others worrying about him—ever.

JJ placed her fork down. “Rocco, there’s obviously something going on with you. If you need—”

“Ah,” he said, pushing down his disappointment. “That’s all this is about.”

They stared at each other a moment before she said, “Ye—no… no, it’s not.”

Rocco raised an eyebrow. “No?”

Before JJ could say anything, her phone on the table rang. She looked from the caller to Rocco and sighed. “Sorry,” she said before answering the call. “Jolie. —Hey, what’s going on? —Oh, okay. Sure, I can be there.” Her eyes darted toward Rocco and away.

Rocco took another bite of his burger and listened as the conversation went on for another minute.

“Sorry about that,” she told him after ending the call.

“Everything okay?”

JJ raised an eyebrow. “Why, Rocco, I might think you’re worried about me.”

“Would that be so bad?”

The teasing expression on her face softened. “No. That could be nice.”

“Oh yeah?” he asked, unable to stop his chest from puffing out some.

JJ laughed, and the sound was feminine and sexy. “Yeah.” She pushed her plate away and dropped some money on the table. “Well, I need to go.” JJ slid out from the booth. “That was my sister, and she needs me to come over.”

“Have dinner with me?” Rocco blurted.

“Yes,” she said at the same time he said, “I mean…”

“Yes?” Rocco asked.

“I’d love to have dinner with you.” JJ winked.

His cheeks pulled back tightly. “Great, how does Friday sound?”

JJ laughed. “Today is Friday.”
