Instead of feeding her late-night appetite, a midnight food run nearly gets 28-year-old Katherine O’Brian killed. She’s the only person to see the man who brutally murdered a local woman, and the killer is hell-bent on making sure she doesn’t talk.
Scott Mitchell left a broken engagement behind when he moved to Reno, and the last thing he needs is more melodrama. But when he and Katherine are paired for a college project, that’s what he gets. It can be very distracting when someone is out to kill your lab partner. Together, they try to figure out what the police haven’t been able to—the identity of the murderer. Passion flares, but with Katherine’s life in danger, romance seems like more than a bad idea.
Scott and Katherine will face jealousy, misunderstandings, lust, and rivals, not to mention attempted murder—and all before their first real date.

Mind Games is a new twist on the romance-suspense thriller genre. I intend to make it the first of what will be a series of romance novels where the focal couple meets under unconventional circumstances or has a shared murky background. These characters don’t adhere to the stereotypical protagonist/antagonist profiles.
Mind Games centers on misplaced love, self discovery and new beginnings between an engaged NYC power couple (Brad Albrecht & Michelle Beauford), a somewhat confused newlywed (Annellyse Crawford) and a manipulative love interest (Kenji Sakura) who uses unconventional methods to find love.
Through a series of chance meetings and deception Kenji gets the girl – but at what cost.
Meanwhile Michelle and Annellyse must come to terms with the new lives thrust upon them while discovering who they are and what they want in life.
And Brad realizes that success and power can only take you so far if you have no one to share in your accomplishments.
Mind Games is a romantic examination of the butterfly effect, set against the backdrop of two cities known for their mystique – New York and Tokyo – and an equally intriguing underground organization.
