Loving Jay —

the inspiration:

It's difficult to say if any one thing inspired this story. At least not ones here I can share without ruining the twists and turns. 

But as for Jay himself, I was inspired by the idea of an alpha male sitting on the sidelines, biding his time, and waiting for his chance to claim the woman he wants.


A Chicago Suits Romance:  Abbie's Story


When money can't buy you love, how far would you go to get what you most desire?

Abbie White’s life fell apart when she discovered the truth about her boyfriend Matt. Their entire six-year relationship was built on a lie; one that cost her dearly.

She can never trust another man. Ever.

Now she works to pay the bills that Matt left behind, consoles herself with friends and only opens her heart to old-fashioned romance movies

James McAllister is used to getting what he wants. As the billionaire owner of the company where Abbie works, he uses his striking good looks, uncompromising confidence and, if all else fails, money to secure his success. Now he’s set his sights on Abbie, and he won't stop until he gets her.

But he can’t let her know who he really is. Because if she knew, she'd run fast and far in the other direction.

First, he needs to win her over, then he'll tell her. Somehow.

Full-length steamy alpha romance. HFN ending.

The Complete Series

Relentless. That's the one word that describes Jay best.

More than sexy. More than confident or charming or protective.
If I hadn't sworn off men forever, I'd melt into his arms right now.
There's just no way I can handle getting hurt again. I can never trust another man.
But like I said, he's relentless, and he wants me.
He promises to make my body quake in ways I've never known.
I try to be strong, but the more he pursues me, the less I can resist him.
Until finally I give in to his touch and let him into my life.
Except the more I'm with him, the more things stop making sense.
Is he really who he says he is?
And why does he know so much about me?
