About Faye Avalon
Faye lives with her super-ace husband and one beloved, ridiculously spoiled dog.

She holds a BA in Art History and an MA in Education.

Her business. His pleasure.
Photographer Lissa is trying to put the past behind her...in more ways than one. Starting her own business again after her associate left her with a mountain of debt, is no easy task. But she's getting there. Until she's confronted by another more personal aspect of her past involving a night she would really rather forget.
Lissa’s attempts to avoid trouble drives her straight into the arms of the hugely successful, and desperately gorgeous entrepreneur, Reed Fitzgerald. Despite his hot kisses and equally hot body, he’s the very last man she should get involved with if she wants to move on. But the attraction is just too powerful to resist, especially when he makes her an offer she'd be mad to refuse.
Reed can't believe his luck. Not only is the beautiful photographer stirring up all manner of desires in him, from her soulful eyes to her delectable curves, but she's up to her pretty neck in debt. Which makes her the perfect woman to help release him from a drunken promise made years ago.
A temporary marriage of convenience will solve both their problems and considering their explosive chemistry will undoubtedly provide plenty of recreational benefits along the way.
But what starts as a temporary business agreement soon develops into much more, until a chance meeting sends Reed into a possessive meltdown and threatens to destroy everything they had been building together.
*A steamy convenient marriage with a strong and broody hero, a soft-hearted heroine, and lots of angsty moments on the way to a happy-ever-after*
Rebuilding her confidence wasn't supposed to be this much fun...
Amber walked right into a cliché when she found her fiancé in bed with her best friend. Not only did her ex claim that she was lousy in bed, but that the physical scars she received following an accident would repel even the most enthusiastic lover. Amber’s confidence is in the toilet. Until she gets stuck in an elevator with a sexy, hot, and very determined hunk of a man who won’t seem to take no for an answer.
A troubled past has taught Ethan to keep women at a healthy distance. But he hadn’t figured on meeting Amber, who seems intent on giving him the brush-off. When he finally breaks down her reserve, he finds a passionate and red-blooded woman who, while she’s happy to indulge in a fully-clothed quickie in the dark, continues to resist his attempts to get her clothes off.
When her secrets are revealed, Ethan sets out to show Amber that not only is she dynamite in bed, her scars in no way diminish how beautiful and desirable she is. When his repeated attempts fail and he hits a brick wall, he reluctantly enlists the help of his best friend in the hope they can both prove to her just how perfect and sexy she is.
But while his plan might improve Amber’s confidence, can he tolerate seeing her find pleasure in another man’s arms? And if the whole thing goes belly-up, he may not just lose Amber, but also his heart.
*A sweet, sexy contemporary romance with a whole load of steam along the way to a happy ever after (HEA) ending*
The irresistible Damian Mortimer nearly destroyed me. First, he gave me mind-blowing pleasure in the bedroom—then he tricked me out of a business deal. Now we’re both mentors on a TV show for budding entrepreneurs, and I’m not going to let him fool me again.
My plan for revenge is simple: sex. The only problem is that Damian is even more devastatingly handsome than I remember. The idea of pleasurable payback excites me, but his body and what he does to me excite me far more. And being close to him has shown me how sensitive and passionate he is. Yes, he hurt me—but he’s been on the receiving end of his fair share of pain.
I don’t know what’s in store for me and Damian Mortimer…but I know I’ll enjoy finding out!
