    Four years ago, Ethan is nothing but a preacher’s kid, broke as a church mouse with a staggering IQ and a one-way ticket to hell. Scarlett is the heavily guarded State Attorney General’s daughter and a beautiful ballet dancer who took Ethan’s breath away. Bold, intense, and all-consuming, their love defies forbidden boundaries.

    Then one night, everything changes. She loses her mind, destroys his life, and disappears, and Ethan’s world comes crashing down.

    Now the most respected tech entrepreneur of his time, Ethan has the world at his feet– 27 billion at 27, as they say. Scarlett, now twenty-one, has returned to the U.S to dance and–if she can muster the courage–to make things right with Ethan. But instead of the boy she left behind, she comes face to face with a gorgeous, fiercely controlled man with the lethal power to command any woman’s attention. Could he still have time for the sheltered ballerina he once loved so deeply?

    Torn between revenge and desire, Ethan can’t deny their chemistry. The lust between them is inescapable. While their passion soars, deception and lies unfold to reveal the truth behind Scarlett’s disappearance. Together, they will face the dirty truth that has kept them apart, and in a stunning exchange of power, Ethan must decide if revenge could ever be sweeter than her.

    DEEP FLAMING RED is the first book in a heart-breakingly sweet and intensely powerful duology about two people who would love without limits if given the chance.

    When debonair billionaire, Devizes Carter, walks unexpectedly into her life, she finally feels like all of her problems might have been solved in one fell swoop.

    Not only is he charming, rich and incredibly good in bed, he also promises to give Alice’s books the attention they deserve.

    Can she give the man she used to call ‘the one’ another chance to come back into her life, or is it time to bury the past, nail down the lid, and finally move on?

    ‘Two Chances At Love’ is both a drama and a comedy, but first and foremost, it’s a love story.
