Keep Happy

Keep Happy ecover

Those who think they know me would tell you I’m a caring mother, a loyal friend, and a dutiful wife. They’d say the golden path which led me here is the road every little girl dreams of taking.

However, the guise of my happy existence has come to be just that—an illusion. A mask of contentment intended for the world to believe.

Not many years into my marriage, I became an abandoned housewife to an adulterous husband. A proud, but sad, mother of two beautiful daughters.

My days were spent somewhere lost between empty and alone.

Then he came back. Mason Cole offered a second chance to share the life we were supposed to have together. He gave me a glimpse of myself. The woman I’d forgotten long ago.

My road to hell was paved with good intentions. But sometimes good intentions get lost amidst a heart’s desire.

At least mine did.

Now I’ll tell you why.

Until I grew up. No longer could he deny how much my existence had always been intertwined with his. And in order to survive the life I was thrown into, I was forced to learn my place inside of it.

Vlad Zalesky was a tyrant to the lost.
I hated him.

He was a terror of mass destruction.
I was afraid of him.

I only wanted to hide from him.

But not far beneath the venomous man’s outward indifference was something else.

Vlad Zalesky carried secrets of unrestrained burden. I wanted to know those secrets.

And because of the decisions I made, someone in our family had to pay.

 Kept – A Second Chance Fairy Tale



She’s a pain in my ass.
She’s everything I know I don’t want or need.
She’s the reason I’ve fought the darkness for so long.
And yet, she has no idea who I am.

I had no right to Lucy. She was never mine to have. My interest in her should’ve remained no more than an undisclosed business arrangement.

The day she forced her way into my life, everything I worked so hard to secure began to unravel. From that moment forward, my life has been a mixture of chaos and excitement.

Lucy awoke the beast I’ve struggled to live with. Now it’s up to her to ensure the threat of its ghost no longer holds the power to ruin me.


He hates me.
He’s guarded and locked down tight.
He’s a brute.
Yet, he opened my eyes to a future I was certain didn’t exist.

My life was ordinary. As a single mother living only to make ends meet, I stopped wishing for more. My hopes and dreams in finding Prince Charming ceased to exist. Life forced my priorities to change.

Then I walked into Michael Holden’s office and saw pain not so unlike mine reflecting through his icy gaze. He incited feelings I believed to have long since died.

Michael awoke the spring of hope I thought I’d finally set free. Now it’s up to him to show me fairy tales really can come true, if you believe.

Filthy. Hateful. Impure.
In order to get to Casey, Max must find a way to infiltrate the MC.

Lights of Peril


Holding On


How does a person decide if their own life is worth sacrificing to save another? Shame holds onto a past that haunts him. Damaged by the parents that should have taught him unconditional love; they imprisoned him with violence and disregard. Even now, Shame struggles to find both the independence and love he deserves. Knowing the blood that runs through him is stained merely by reputation, Hem seeks acceptance while he searches for ways to redeem himself in the eyes of those that have judged him his entire life. Together the two have committed themselves to one purpose; protecting those they love the most. Mace Cash is Hem’s younger sister. Although they share the same mother, Mace’s father despises Hem and his position in the family. Sadey Lyons has loved Hem all of her life. Swearing to save herself for him, she’s determined to wait for him for as long as it takes; wanting only for him to see her as the woman she has become and not the little girl he’s always cherished. When Hem and Shame meet Doc, the President of Lights of Peril Motorcycle Club, their lives take a dramatic turn. Finally escaping from a past that has controlled them, they find themselves living free. But neither of them have known peace for long… This is their story of love, loyalty, and heartbreak.

The Way Home


Where do you begin to piece back the fragments of a shattered heart? “I’m letting you go today, it’s time.” Finally, Sadey is ready to say goodbye to the only man she’s ever loved. With the help of Shame and Mace she’s learning to breathe on her own again; one day at a time. Her hopes are high and her world is finally coming into focus. Until someone from her past comes back to help her heal, bringing with him more heartbreak and confusion than she could have ever believed possible. Ace loves her. For six months, he’s watched her suffer from a distance. Knowing it wasn’t his place to see her through this, but no matter the risk he won’t stay away. “Sadey, I’ve missed you, okay? I’ve thought about you. I missed being here. Do you understand that? I’ve missed being around you, touching you, holding you, and laughing with you. I missed you before I even left town that night. You chose Hem, not that it was any kind of competition, but you were with Hem. I was never even given the consideration.” Emotions are high as further truths of betrayal are exposed, leaving everyone to pick up the pieces once again.

Shame is plagued with doubts surrounding his love for Mace. He loves her. He’s loved her since she was five years old, but feels he doesn’t deserve her. This uncertainty is surfacing while struggling to forget the loss of his tragic childhood.

“What if the trigger has already been set and I’m going to wake up one day and realize I’m my parent’s son in their way of evil? The thought sickens me. I’m no good without Mace. I never have been. She’s the one person in my life I would refuse to live without. If I ever treated her and Ryder like my father treated my mother and I, it would make for an easy decision. I would kill myself.”

Shame’s childhood wasn’t filled with happiness and love. It was heart wrenching, and abusive. Used by his father and resented by his mother, a young Neil struggles through his days waiting for an escape; a savior.

“As he seethes his anger onto me I feel the spit from his words land on my face and in it I smell his whiskey and coke coming down like rain over my blissful day. I’m working for them now. I’m nine and I’ve just been interviewed and hired for my very first job… running drugs.”

Once meeting Doc, Lynda, Mace, Hem, and Sadey – his life changes from desolate to hopeful.

“At just five years old, she found her way into my heart and loved me in a way I never thought I could be loved. All that was before I ever even knew I needed her.”

Throughout the story you learn why Shame has become the person that he is. Intense, raw, powerful, and most of all – protective of those he loves the most. In the end he finds himself surrounded by everything he had ever hoped for.

“The storms I waited out were violent and unstable, but once finding them I found the unconditional love that I’d ached for in my search for them. It’s in this moment, among the sounds of monitors and babies crying and the feel of Mace in my arms, holding me tight, just as she always had, that I realize – I am finally well and truly home.”

Devil’s Despair


Ace’s Redemption

Ace's Redemption (Devil's Despair #1)


Memories alone can ruin you. Fear has a paralyzing effect, and love isn’t always enough to keep you safe.

Ace was the gateway to a freedom I hadn’t known since I was fifteen. He offered his protection from the demons that haunted me; both living and dead.

Although I knew I wasn’t enough to keep him, this didn’t deter my hope that one day he’d love me for who I was, not the broken girl he tried so desperately to save.

In the end, the ghosts of my past found me. Their malevolence knew no bounds, and I was forced to succumb to their will of darkness. Each threat named against those I loved made any escape impossible; choosing my life for theirs became my desolate absolution.

Inevitably, it was my own weakness and self-doubt that became my undoing.


Emotional ties are sometimes severed. Friendships don’t always endure their hardships, and love offered isn’t always returned.

I was in love once. For me, leaving her and my previous motorcycle club back in Ohio was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. For her, moving on with her life that included her son and the man she loved was no less than she deserved — unconditional happiness.

My reasons to bring Cherry home to California were obvious. I needed help with my family, and she needed help staying clean and convincing her parents she was ready to give her son the life he deserved.

It was a perfect plan. However, the best laid plans often get lost amidst their best intentions.

Cherry fell in love with me, and in return my love for her acted as the catalyst to her destruction.

Hayden’s Verse


I’m known to my friends as a player; a user of women.

I don’t believe in relationships. They’re messy and confusing. They don’t last.

Lacey Wells walked into my life and ruined it. Although not in the traditional
sense, we made the decision to be ‘exclusive’. We used each other to satisfy
our bodies’ want of lust and attraction. And we had this…for a time.

When uncontrollable events altered the arrangement and life as we knew it had
fallen to circumstance, my reactions weren’t only punishing, they were painful
and cruel. I pushed her away, causing her heartache, but in return, she refused
to break. Instead, she challenged my will at every turn. She was determined to
make me see the person I always was, but had never been. I was desperate and
searching for the answer I was so anxious to have…

Was I capable of falling in love?

Our path together was tumultuous and unforgiving. At times, it was full of
anger and resentment. But it was also fun and sometimes downright ridiculous.

There’s no label to our story; tales of cliché pale in comparison. It just
happened. It was us. It was crazy and it was exactly what we made it.

Travis’s Stand

Travis's stand


“I’d rather hurt you this way than watch you wake up one morning, after losing everyone in your life, because you think your love for me means more than your loyalty to them.”

Sarah said this to me.

“I’m sorry.”

She said that, too.

Caught up in the inescapable pain of an unexpected loss, Sarah and I shared one unforgettable night together. The next morning, she made the decision to walk away from what could’ve been.

To her, we were a mistake.

To me, we were everything I never knew I needed.


Those I’m closest to never understood me.

To them, my maddening character was nothing more than a ridiculous piece of my adolescence.

To me, it was the sad truth knowing I was never going to be an equal among them.

After my life was tragically ripped apart, the only person I believed accepted the real me, offered me the escape I was desperate for.

I refused to believe the night Travis and I shared would taint our friendship. I thought if I kept him at arm’s length and if I denied talking to him about what we’d done, my life would go back to what it was before.

To me, it was a lonely place in which I was used to being.

To him, it was the one place I never belonged.

It wasn’t only Ace who stood in the way of our happily-ever-after. The power of a person’s past has a way of risking their future.

Travis’s past jeopardized it all.

      Oh soooo happy you enjoyed the series and you like the author :). Likely, we’ll be moving this to another series — more MC related — and probably end of this year or early next. Angels and Demons will be the name of Elevent’s book. 🙂 You can sign up for my newsletter, though. I always send out new release notifications ❤ Thank you so so much.
