Logical. Efficient. The way he wants it.
That’s what successful businessman Kenneth Stone confidently believes of his life as he strides into the studio of Jaesha Hampstead to get his regrettably slashed girlfriend-departed portrait restored. But dang! Before Kenneth knows it he’s posing in his office for Jaesha to create a new one.
When Kenneth’s financial advisor arrives and Jaesha shrieks like a banshee moaning that the man is there to rip Kenneth off millions in a Ponzi scheme, Kenneth discovers there’s a whole lot more to Jaesha than just paintbrushes. And that whole lot more would make a mighty fine business asset. Moreover, Kenneth Stone has a secret little talent of his own, a secret that could bind Jaesha to him regardless of her feelings on the matter.
Kenneth crafts a brilliant plan for the seduction of his little Picasso not knowing that while he may be a born boss, Jaesha is a born saboteur.
The Dangerous Path of Loving Jaesha is 85,000 words long and is written in the genres of magical realism/humor/erotic romance and is intended for an adult reader.

She’s old. Alone. It’s time to swallow the pills and be done.
And that’s what she does, happily discovering there IS life after death –as a spirit!

Foolishly she tries to help. Whoosh! In one Great Cosmic Fluke, the child’s departed and she’s there instead. Back on Earth and in Angelique’s body!
One rocky path later, Angelique’s grown and performing uneasily at the Wyatt T. Cochran Employee Appreciation Gala trying to dodge the suspiciously intrigued Wyatt T. Cochran himself. But Wyatt isn’t the only man attracted to Angelique’s glittering uncanny talents, dark miscreants are too… the ones who want to feast.

Because when a Great Cosmic Fluke occurs, the Cosmos can have one barmy sense of humor.

Welcome to Perdition House: a house of sin, secrets and seduction.
Previously published under the title Midnight Confessions…
Ghost stories are not always frightening. Sometimes they’re cheeky, naughty and often erotic…
When Faye Grantham inherits Perdition House, her family’s secret shame, she expects to sell the property for millions and marry her long time fiancé.
But the spirits who still reside in the mansion have other ideas. Trapped in the bordello, the women who lived and worked there wait to tell their stories to Faye.
The “girls” don’t just hang around waiting. They control Faye’s libido, influence her decisions and drive her into the arms of two very different men.
Liam Watson wears comfort like most men wear cologne. With an interest in adventurous sex, he’s more man than he first seems.
Mark McLeod is a strong, decisive businessman who was not meant to be more than a hot one-night stand. But Mark is in no hurry to end their liaison, and hopes to continue Faye’s lessons in sensuality.
As Faye becomes enthralled with the mansion, she’s embroiled in a life-changing situation that has her re-examining her engagement, her business decisions, and her beliefs about herself.
As the spirits reveal themselves one by one, Faye learns their stories: how they came to Perdition House, why they joined the women there and some of the secrets that only a high-class bordello could hold.
But can decades-old secrets affect Faye’s life today?
