Blurb/Synopsis for Tiger’s Last Chance
While working a case, Sean Whitman is tortured for information, drugged, and bitten against his will by a shape shifter. The fallout ruins his career. Needing a fresh start, he leaves town and opens a private investigation business. Learning to live life sober isn’t easy, but he makes it to the two-year mark.
When Detective Nikki Jackson with the Great Oaks, Virginia Police Department calls him to ask for his help as a consultant on a case, he's captivated by her sweet, slightly Southern voice. In person, she's unlike any other woman he's encountered, and nearly impossible to resist. But could the sexy detective ever want a man like him?
After Nikki’s last dating disaster, the mountain lion shifter has sworn off men. Then she meets Sean, and with every second she spends around the tall, dark-eyed man, her resolve crumbles. Despite the undeniable attraction between them, Sean seems determined to push her away.
An investigation into missing refugees leads Nikki to the discovery of a radical political group’s horrifying plot for dominance. Traitors are embedded within the very organizations meant to keep shifters safe. As the list of people she can trust dwindles, she calls on Sean to help her unravel a web of deceit.
As Nikki and Sean fight for survival, his fear of losing her could become a reality. Will he get one last chance to show her he loves her?

One of my favorite recipes
I love pies and cakes and basically anything sweet. I’m not the most patient cook so I tend to favor simple recipes with basic ingredients. My daughter is an amazing cook so I often ask her to do the cooking. My least favorite chore is her favorite chore. She brings her joy of baking into all of her recipes, simple or complex. She made this beautiful Cherry Crumble Cake while we hung out in the kitchen listening to Blondie, the Misfits, and Toto.
To make Cherry Crumble Cake you will need:
9 tablespoons of butter, softened
¾ cup of sugar
1teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of flour
1 ounce of milk
1 eight ounce can of cherry pie filling (or apple or blueberry if you prefer)
And then for the crumble part of the cake-
9 tablespoons of butter, softened
¾ cups of sugar
1 ¾ cups of flour
For the glaze part:
¼ cup of heavy whipping cream
Directions for cooking:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of pan. Mix sugar and butter until fluffy. Next add the eggs, milk, flour, and baking powder and mix for a creamy texture. Spread batter into the pan. Top with cherry pie filling. The ingredients for the crumbles get mixed next but only long enough to leave the mixture crumbly. Bake at around 350 or 375 for about 45-50 minutes. Right after the cake comes out of the oven, pour the heavy whipping cream over the cake for the glaze. Refrigerate overnight.
A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I decided to give the idea of writing a story a chance. Love, courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. My stories include a fair amount of sarcasm, suspense, steam, and violence. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time outside and finding ways to avoid cooking. I live in beautiful Virginia with my husband, two daughters, and a sweet, hairy monster of a dog.
