What I Really Learned in College, the With Honors series, Book 1

WIRLIC cover

Alex Rose is a 32-year-old divorced mother of two, looking for a better life for her and her sons. In search of answers, she returns to college to finally get that degree she’s always dreamed of. What she finds is something she wasn’t even looking for.

Mason Brooks is every girl’s dream: 21 years old, tall, with dirty blond hair that curls when it’s wet, sea-blue eyes, and dimples. Hot, sexy…and deliciously naïve and innocent.

Enter a tantalizing world where an average soccer mom utilizes her newfound knowledge of psychology to make life just a little more interesting. Follow along as Alex educates Mason on the art of seducing and pleasing a woman. Take notes as she introduces him to a whole new level of intensity and sexual pleasure. Study the sensual art of tantric sex as Alex creates her own style of silk and lace female dominance.

This little tryst will never survive past college–but Alex is determined to enjoy it the fullest while it lasts.

Making the Dean’s List, the With Honors series, Book 2

cover reveal booktrope

In an ideal world the right man comes along, you fall madly in love, and live happily ever after. But real life isn’t quite so simple and timing is everything!

And having to choose between two charismatic, sexy, and compassionate men isn’t easy…the fact that they are father and son puts a new degree of complications into the mix. How do you decide between the boy you’re currently dating and the man you know you could spend the rest of your life with…if you’d only met him first?

Welcome to Alex’s world. Balancing a full time career as a college student and being a full time single parent is all she believed she would have to contend with when she decided to go back to school. But she began a little tryst with a fellow student that turned into so much more. And then she met his father…

Sexual escapades, student teaching, homework, her children’s activities, the annoying ex-husband, and friends who wish they could switch places with her keep Alex’s life interesting. But the problem with seeing two men is that eventually the truth comes out. Will she follow her heart or will she forego her own desires and play it safe?

Don’t miss out on a sneak peek at the final installment in the With Honors series, Transferring Credits, Book 3.

Giving Thanks

As I have mentioned numerous times before I moved to Phoenix from Indianapolis last February. It has been an exciting, and at times, lonely journey. I love living with my best friend and reviving our thirty year friendship. I love my new job as a Marketing Director. I have amazing co-workers and business associates. And I admit I love the ‘winter’ weather thus far. Okay, I admit to smiling just a bit when the Midwest was hit with their first winter blast this weekend and it was in the low 80s here!

However, for the first time in my life I will spend Thanksgiving without my family. My children are scattered across this country either serving in the military, going to school, or working and they cannot make the trip. Therefore, I will have to wait until Christmas to spent time with them.

But this is also the first Thanksgiving since my grandfather, the patriarch of our family, passed away and it feels especially disheartening. I cannot help but reminisce about the Thanksgiving’s of days long gone when my parents, my older sister and I would gather with my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and hordes of cousins. It was absolute chaos. The food was always cold, the mashed potatoes lumpier then the gravy, and the cold dishes were luke warm. The only thing that was good was my Aunt Virginia’s famous peanut butter pie, which was always the first thing that disappeared so I rarely got a piece.

Angela & Grandpa 2

But we were together. It was family. Regardless of where we all ended up in life, those are some of the most cherished memories I have from my childhood. I can still see my grandfather sitting at the head of the table holding my grandmother’s hand saying grace and thanking the Lord for another year and for all of us being together. It is sad to think that now that both of my grandparents are gone, getting all of us together again would be almost impossible.

And one of the hardest things about starting over anew and leaving the only life you have ever known along with all your processions behind you is, of course, starting over with nothing. I left a bad marriage in Indiana with only what I could fit in my car. Everything I had worked for in my life is gone. Yes, it was worth it to get out of such a bad situation, but my heart breaks when I think about all that I have lost. Still, you honestly do not know how brave you truly are until you are in a terrible situation and forced to make sacrifices for you to have a future.

So this Thanksgiving I am filled with a broken and heavy heart as I miss my family dearly. And as I dry my tears over not being able to be with my three beautiful children and my parents on this day, I am eternally grateful for my best friend, my new home, my new friends, and the new life I have built in Arizona. But in my heart of hearts I will long for the day when we are all together and hold tight to the knowledge that someday soon we shall all be together again.

From my heart to yours, I would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving spent with all those you hold near and dear to you!!
