Tessa Tease

Falling in love was not in the job description…

Being a Teaser was easy. Infiltrate an organization, discover their secrets, and bring the criminals to justice. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. So, why can’t I stop thinking about the curly-haired mafia boss down the hall?

When Tessa Abraham was assigned to investigate Mario Vasquez- one of the wealthiest (and most dangerous) men in Miami- the last thing she expected was to fall head over heels for him. Soon, Tessa realizes that she isn’t the only one interested in the secrets that lurk in Miami’s shadows. Alliances are tested when Tessa discovers the powder-keg that threatens to rip everyone’s world in two. 

What started as a simple recon mission, spiraled into the largest criminal conspiracy case of the decade. Will love conquer all? Or will the truth be too much for some to bear?

Making Arrangements


Against all odds, cancer survivor Lang Eldridge is celebrating the one-year anniversary of her “death sentence” when her beloved husband drops dead on the tennis court. Reeling from shock, Lang realizes all of her perfect arrangements (from the caramel cake in the freezer for his first Christmas without her to love letters for his first anniversary alone) are in utter disarray. A mute stray dog posts itself on her front porch and a grammar-butchering fashion plate posts herself in Lang’s kitchen, regularly revealing too much information. Lillian, Lang’s long-lost mother, reappears for the funeral and is as obnoxious as ever. Her son, Teddy, has his own ideas of how she should manage her life, and they don’t include cavorting about with a veterinarian who resembles Wimpy. Lang’s granddaughter is a bright spot in her life, and Lang can’t imagine life without her.

With her historical family estate in jeopardy, Lang discovers her husband wasn’t as perfect as she thought. 
Is she strong enough to keep her husband’s secret from destroying her life?
