One Night at Christmas

https://amzn.to/2V4QxcB


Bryson Scott and Charon Cooper are best friends who have never met—in person. Every morning, Charon starts her day with a video chat with Bryson. They cook breakfast together, talk about everything, and then go about their separate lives. Two people couldn’t be more different.

Bryson dreams of power, position, and money. He will stop at nothing to get it, including marrying the right woman. Charon just wants a quiet and stress-free life. She’s happy working in a pizza restaurant while improving her art.

When Bryson tells Charon he’s drawing up a contract to get married, Charon knows it’s time to let go of the man she’s come to love. She won’t keep being his friend if he’s unavailable. Bryson doesn’t like it, but neither of them is willing to give up on their dreams.

So Bryson makes a proposal. One night at Christmas, they spend it together in person, making love. Then they say good-bye forever. The night is everything Charon could imagine. Big, sexy Bryson burns Charon up in the bedroom. But the fallout, beginning the next morning, is not according to plan.

With His Touch

With His Touch is the sequel to The Way Back. This is Jamie's story. Jamie started to think he was missing something when he watched Keon get a wife and start having kids. There should be someone perfect for him, and he shouldn't have a problem picking her right out since he did it once for his buddy. Only Jamie's girl isn't who he or anyone else would think. Cabrina is a little rough and a lot of innocence.

Cabrina Barnes has had to fight to survive. From as far back as she can remember her father and brother have been abusive and cruel. When her mother died, she fled the home where she grew up. She learned self-defense and carries a weapon for protection. While she won't let a man get too close, she dreams of something more. A real family feels like an impossible dream. Then she meets Jamie.

Jamie Westgate feels a little jealous of his best friend. Keon has found love and a family, but Jamie is still alone. He's got money and success, but it means nothing without someone to share it with. From the first day he meets Cabrina, Jamie loves her.

Everyone thinks Jamie's crazy, especially because Cabrina is clumsy, ignorant, and blunt as hell. The day they meet, Cabrina pulls a gun on him. He doesn't know if she's manipulating him or if she's truly as vulnerable as she seems. Regardless of Cabrina's motives, once Jamie rescues her from danger, he won't let her go—even if she fights him all the way to the altar.

Cerulean Secret

UPDATE: I had to change this cover because I decided to do a sequel to The Way Back to tell Jamie's story. I didn't want anyone to get confused. So here is the updated cover for Cerulean Secret.

https://amzn.to/2xc9jUn



I know. Cerulean Secret has a similar cover to The Way Back.
The story has nothing to do with The Way Back, but I loved the cover so much, I decided why fix something when it's not broken. Lol. Anyway, Cerulean Secret is about 51,000 words. Yay for longer! The interesting thing about this book is that I broke my normal mold again. Bradley is 45 years old, while Stacia is only 25 years old. Yikes!

He's sexy and kind, the ultimate good guy. I think you'll love him. Give Bradley a chance. You won't regret it.

This book is a longer one, being 51,000 words. Keon is hurting so much. At the same time, he's being mean, striking out from a broken heart. Shakita is time enough for him. I love this cover beyond all reason. I can't stop looking at it. Lol. Anyway, I hope you'll like this story.

Shakita Chambers has just landed a dream job working with a man she's admired for years. She would love to learn all she can from Keon, a world famous author. Except Keon is broken. He's determined to drink himself into the grave, starve himself there, or tick her off so bad she kills him herself.

Despite Keon's ugly attitude, Shakita is attracted to him. One minute they're arguing, the next they can't keep their hands off each other. Shakita knows she's playing a dangerous game. Keon still loves his ex, and his ex won't let him forget it.

Shakita's worried about her heart, and so is every other interfering busybody in her life.

Matching Tony

I was in the mood to break story structure rules in this one. The book starts out from the POV of the friend and boss of the heroine. Just for fun. I wanted to show some behind the scenes finagling. I hope you enjoy it.

https://amzn.to/2JEVwid


Just so you know, Tony isn't a pro boxer. He boxes to stay in shape. And he's in very good shape! Probably many of my readers enjoy reading the sex parts, but honestly once you've read a few, they're just reordered words. One gets tired of writing sex, sex, sex. You can mix up the elements of a story far more than you can mix up what happens in the bedroom after two hundred books.

Anyway, here is the blurb, and I hope you like.


Author's Note: While there is lots of delicious tension between the hero and heroine, this work is CLEAN.

Tony Russo is an average Joe, but his dream is to work in protective services. Chanise Bailey is an image consultant with a little hitch in her personal image. She's overweight and not at all confident in her choices regarding men.

After breaking free of an abusive relationship, Chanise is on the right road to a better life. She's working for her friend Lucy, who owns a matchmaking agency for people with a little more money. As a favor, Chanise agrees to allow Lucy's cousin Tony to be her bodyguard. What she didn't count on is just how sexy and perfect Tony is. From his healthy eating habits and his skills in boxing to the hero complex he seems to have, Tony is everything Chanise should avoid if she wants to hold onto her heart.

Chanise is insistent that she doesn't need Tony, but he's dogging her every step. He lives in her house and drives her car. They eat together and sleep… Ten days—that's all she will allow him to train using her as the test client. Then he's out. After all there's nothing and no one in her life that poses any danger, right?

No Twists, No Turns, Just Love

Here is the longest title in history. Kidding! I don't know why I wanted to use this title. It worked, and I was in a mood, so... Anyway, dear readers, I hope you will enjoy my new work. For those of you who are still looking for the sequel to Married to the Wolf, I will write it. I'm just not sure how soon. Thank you so much for your patience.

Happy Reading! - Tress

Leila lost everything the day she found out her fiancé was a no good lying cheater. She had ignored all the signs, but the truth wouldn’t stay hidden for long. Before she could come to terms with her broken heart, her life went off the tracks—literally. A train derailment left Leila with no memory of her past or herself. She’s got no one—except Night Foster.

Night made a decision he might live to regret. The day he walked into Leila’s hospital room and realized she had lost the only people who loved her, he knew he had to change things. And so he lied. He told Leila he was her best friend and began the long walk to recovery with her.

Night ignored his own grieving heart to help Leila. It doesn’t matter if she learns the truth about who he is and begins to hate him. He’s not worthy of a woman like her anyway. He’ll get her to a stronger place and then move on. Unfortunately, his heart—and Leila—won’t let that happen.
