Today I'm sharing a teaser and an Amazon review for CROSSROADS my new MM romance. 

Crossroads Teaser

Three years ago, Jesse walked into the voodoo shop and asked for a job. It was love at first sight—for Mawmaw and Jesse. They hit it off immediately. Jesse is a believer, the grandson she should have had.

I was smitten, too, but for other reasons. Jesse looked so damn hot, all long blond hair and golden-brown skin like he should have been riding a surfboard instead of a skateboard. His cutoffs were stretched tight over the bulge at his crotch, and being the slut I was back then, I wanted to fuck him. I gave Mawmaw a thumbs-up, and she hired him on the spot.

Jesse stayed for dinner. My grandmother filled his head with ghost stories and his stomach with her spicy shrimp gumbo. I took him to bed later and filled him in other ways. It didn’t take long for lust to turn into the real thing. Fortunately, I didn’t screw things up, and Jesse moved in two weeks later. Jesse is easy to love. I’m not sure what he sees in me, I’m just grateful the feelings are mutual.

New Amazon Review:

"Already a fan of this author, I didn't hesitate to pick Crossroads, because I knew I was in for a treat. And, indeed, this novel turned out to be as delightfully intricate, packed with emotions, inhabited with lively three-dimensional characters and a wonderfully flowing storyline, as I expected. Beautifully told, realistic, Crossroads kept me glued to my Kindle, so in the end I read it in just one sitting. Many times Louis's dilemmas, his inner struggle, his torment had me on a brink of tears. So moving, written so smoothly. I truly wish this story was longer or had a sequel."


Long time lovers, Louis Abellard and Jesse Trudeau work in a Voodoo shop in the French Quarter. Jesse is a believer, but Louis turned his back on the spirits when they allowed his mother to die of cancer.

When Jesse is hospitalized with leukemia, Louis is desperate to save him. He’ll do anything—except ask the spirits for help. Then one night an unlikely ally makes contact, and Louis finds himself at a crossroads. Maybe it’s time to revisit his past and confront his inner demons.
