River secretly hates Mexico. Before he returns to London, he hopes his last backpacking stop on his year-long world tour will be an exciting and exotic highpoint, but it has only been a series of missed opportunities and disappointments.

On her mission to reclaim discarded dreams after unpredictable loss, Sedona left her job and sold everything in Portland, Oregon to travel solo. Her first stop is Mexico.  Surrounded by its vibrant culture and inspiring beauty, she falls in love with the country and begins to find herself again.

Chance after chance, River and Sedona keep meeting and can’t deny their attraction. When they finally surrender to their chemistry, fate leads them into a sexy, adventurous, passionate, and unforgettable affair across Mexico and Guatemala that teaches them a new meaning of love and healing.

After only two weeks together, River must return to London, and they move on with their lives believing they will never see each other again.  But four years later, fate has other plans when Sedona finds herself in London, and River must reveal the truth about his identity.

A Synergy Romance: Book 2

She wants her freedom and so does he… until he sees her.

Fresh from leaving a toxic relationship and on a mission to find her purpose, Kat flees Los Angeles to rediscover her passions in Europe and quickly falls in love with everything she finds.

When she meets Thomas, it’s obvious that all women love the gorgeous, gregarious, fun-loving, English billionaire playboy. Like them, she can’t deny her attraction, but he’s with a different woman every time she sees him, and he’s another guaranteed heartbreak.

Thomas loves his easy, non-committed, bachelor’s life until he lays eyes on Kat during his Greek Island sailing trip. Competent, athletic, intelligent, beautiful, she’s everything he loves, and, for the first time, he’s found a woman worth chasing. But she only runs away from him.

Fate continues to throw them together when they meet again in London and they both know their chemistry is undeniably hot. But if Thomas wants to be with Kat, he must face who he’s been, to become the man that can keep her.
