HAVEN, an Urban Fantasy Romance
Here’s a romantic snippet from HAVEN featuring Carina, a feisty San Francisco club owner, and her love-interest, undead musician Alexander.
Alexander draped his black leather coat over my shoulders. “Around four.”
He helped me snake my arms into the coat’s too-long-for-me sleeves, his hands pale like moonlight against the inky darkness of his coat. Such large, competent hands, the fingers long and strong. Piano player fingers. A silver band graced his left index, an onyx triquetra adorning the middle. He fished my hand from the sleeve. When our palms touched, power pulsed, warm and comforting.
My eyes strayed to the bracelets on his wrist. One thin strap of black leather and a chunky, metal bracelet of I-shaped links. I traced the metal with my free hand. “Silver?”
“Never.” He pointed at the rings. “White gold.” And the bracelet. “Titanium.”
“Oh.” My fingers continued their dance over his accessories. Love touching him.
Wind gusted around the clinic, whipping locks of hair across my face. He brushed them away, tucking some behind my ear. I pressed my cheek against his palm and closed my eyes to savor the moment. “Feeling better?”
I blinked and gave him a wry grin. “A lot better since you interrupted my undead uncles getting me drunk on brandy.”
His lips quirked, fangs flashing.
My insides quivered. “Yeah, much better.” My fingertips stroked his handsome face.
His skin showed no signs of the wounds he’d received during the earlier fight. Impressive. He leaned into my touch. My eyes zeroed in on his oh-so kissable lips. He moved closer, closer still, pausing a hair’s breadth away. My pulse skyrocketed. My stomach performed endless somersaults while bits lower clenched in anticipation. Do it. Do it now.
Alexander let out a breath and kissed me.

Here’s another excerpt. Alexander and Carina’s First Meet –>
San Francisco nightclub owner Carina Tranquilli works hard, plays hard, and never allows the death of her parents and her twelve-year memory gap to get her down. But her life takes a left turn when a witch attacks her on her twenty-fifth birthday.
Three hauntingly familiar vampires emerge to reveal she possesses a latent power. To protect her from their enemies, they admit to wiping her memories clean and abandoning her as a child, but now they need her help. As she struggles to evade her new protectors and even newer enemies, she meets Alexander, an enigmatic, undead musician. Insta-lust flares, leaving her wanting more.
With evil’s minions hounding her every move, and everything she thought she knew turned on its head, Carina must harness her burgeoning power, unravel her vampire family’s web of deceit, and fight to have a love life…without getting killed in the process.
