One Night At The Penthouse Suite

All her life, Cora Ciacho was trained by her father to be one thing: CEO of Ciacho Group, the company he built from the ground up. She assumes the role six months after he passes away, but must face new challenges: a borderline hostile board, a too-good-to-be-true investment offer, and a mother and sister who deal with their grief in different ways. Thank goodness for Stephen Cruz, the sweet, sexy man who’d rescued her from a party eight months ago and has stayed by her side ever since.

Stephen knows that he and Cora are worlds apart. He does his best even if he wonders if a worker bee like him is enough for the queen that she is. Their relationship sizzles in the bedroom, but as they go through a trial by fire, can his love overcome their challenges? Or will it fizzle as Cora tries to conquer the boardroom?

Book 3

Scorched Earth

Peyton Riley is running for her life.

She\’s always been a survivor, but she\’s never been in a pickle like this. Her boss, the man she had come to fear and respect, and the only constant in her peripatetic and dangerous life, is after her–and it doesn\’t seem like he intends a harmless catch-up. But he\’s not the only one looking for Peyton. There\’s her sometime partner-in-crime and occasional hook-up (it\’s complicated) Carson Varis. Law enforcement is also interested in her boss\’s shadowy business dealings, thinking she\’s the key to unraveling them.

And then there are those dealings themselves. What\’s her boss up to? Somehow, Peyton doesn\’t think getting back at a former employee is the worst thing on his agenda…


Book 2

Peyton Riley

Not to get Liam Neeson on your asses, but the fact is that Peyton Riley has a very specific skill set. She\’s good at her job and has just gotten off a major project when she crosses paths with the gorgeous snake-in-the-grass calling himself Carson Varis. He\’s taken her against her will, but to where, and to what end? She\’s got days to figure this out and escape–before her boss finds out where his favorite specialist has disappeared.

Carson Varis has got an eye for art and a mania for professionalism. No one does work-life balance like he does. But a certain fiery redhead has gotten his goals in a twist. He has his employer\’s order to fulfill, but can\’t get the memory of her body (and her hair, and her deep blue eyes, and oh, that mouth) out of the way. Can he get it together and pull off a job well done?


Book 1

In Too Deep

A private island….an exclusive guest list…a hot, friendly guy who\’s more than willing to have that proverbial summer fling…it\’s the perfect getaway. Or is it?

Mary Shaw works hard and plays harder. Off a difficult project that doesn\’t go quite according to plan, she heads off on a solitary vacation to recharge her nerves and get things together. That there\’s a dimpled man-candy who wants to take things up a sexy notch? Perfect bonus. But all is not what it seems, and the things that Mary seeks to escape have a way of catching up with her.

Alta: A High Society Romance Anthology
You’re invited to the most awaited party of the century!
Climb up the dizzying altitude of Manila’s high society where the air is never thin enough, the view is always spectacular, if a bit vertigo-inducing, and the summit is crowded with well-heeled elite jostling for the top socialite spot. Scandals, sexy shenanigans, and sizzling romance happen as the filthy rich Aritz family don their diamonds, designer gowns, and bespoke suits and gather to celebrate their matriarch’s ninetieth birthday!
Everyone knows that Allie Medina is in love with Logan Aritz Hilario. With his sexy hair and Aritz nose, it’s a miracle she’s managed to keep her feelings a secret from him every time they cross paths. But her boss, Doña Carmen has had enough of secrets and hatched the perfect plan to throw Allie and Logan together on an all-expenses paid trip to romantic Vienna.
Together in a foreign land and far away from Logan’s family’s influence and wealth, could this be Allie’s chance to finally be on equal footing with the man she’s always thought of as out of her league? And will Logan finally see her for what she’s truly worth?
Heiress-slash-performance artist Natalia Aritz turns up in Manila after a disastrous Italian sojourn, heart too wrung out to even want to leave the house. That is, until a surprising meeting with her college classmate and old friend, Nicky Aventado.
He\’s asking for a favor she can\’t refuse. But his connections to her family\’s past isn\’t the only reason why she agrees to sneak him into her grandmother\’s birthday party. There\’s just something about those lips she can’t resist…
Intensely private Joaquin Aritz abhors attention. Especially the kind where the Aritz Corporation heir gets a special mention in a video gone viral featuring vlogger and D-list celebrity Kelly Monago. She’s young, brazen, and turns heads wherever she goes, including Joaquin’s.
He thinks giving in to their simmering desire is a bad idea. Kelly is on a mission to convince him they should explore the attraction-and each other-before coming to a conclusion.
This 82,000 word anthology has three stories, a prologue and an epilogue with an all new cast of characters. All stories have a happily ever after guaranteed, and is categorized as Heat Level 3 (based on the #romanceclass heat level classification on
