The Demon King (Mate Series book 1)

Lavender is a wolf, or so she thought. She hasn't been the strongest or the fastest and there's a reason for that. Strong and independent, Lavender tries to prove that she doesn't want or need a mate. She does this by leaving her pack and building a business of her own as a fixer. But her life isn't her own, and she does belong to someone, and he's out to get her. That is of course if he can get past the most powerful wolf there is. Sullivan has taken it upon himself to protect her, but it's more than that. Sullivan likes Lavender, but Lavender doesn't want a mate. So while they fight evil, their need for each other grows. Will she one day give into the wolf and be his? That will all depend on what the demon king wants.

This story is now available on Amazon!

New book Out!

So it’s finally here! The second part to the Unexpected Love series is now available on Amazon. It has taken longer than I would’ve liked, but it’s finally finished! So Angelica has a lot of challenges ahead of her, but she will eventually find her way through the wilderness of her life. I’m glad to say I’m happy with the way the story has ended. I had no idea how it would end, but it did and as usual it took me on an interesting journey. I hope you enjoy!


Angelica has finally walked down the aisle, but the more time she spends with Elliott, the more she begins to question the relationship. On their honeymoon things take a turn for the worst and it is then that she sees the real Elliott.
For a short while Angelica tries to keep everything together. She keeps up with the healthy eating habits and exercise regime, but when Elliott begins to control who she can be friends with, things change. Elliott wants complete control over everything she does! Angelica has to make some hard choices and, Elliott will not let her go easily. She belongs to him, and he will make sure he keeps her.
Angelica finally understands the true meaning of love and the sacrifices she has to make to finally be herself again.


The driver slid into the driver seat and drove her home. When she got home she wasn’t expecting to see Elliott, he’d left for the day, but he’d opened the door as soon as she arrived. She wasn’t that surprised, the women must have told him exactly what had happened, but at this point she was beyond caring.
‘What the hell happened?’ He sounded mad.
Angelica clutched to her handbag as she approached him. She knew that anything could happen, but she’d had enough.
‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.’ She pushed past him. This move shocked him. He’d never known her this way.
‘I’m talking about the scene you caused today at the restaurant. Ellen and Willow weren’t exactly pleased.’
‘Oh sorry for them.’ She headed for the stairs.
‘What is with you?’ He followed behind her, but she didn’t reply or stop. You’re acting crazy!’
‘No!’ She stopped a moment. ‘The day I started acting crazy was when I believed I had to change for you. That’s madness!’ She entered the bedroom and headed for the closet. There were a few suitcases at the end of the closet, the ones they’d used when they went on their honeymoon. She pulled one from the top shelf.
‘What the hell do you think you’re doing?’ he asked.
He was silent a while, while he processed this information.
‘Something I should’ve done a long time ago.’
‘I will kill your mother and your brother. He’s on his way to Sierra Leone, anything could happen.’
Her heart picked up pace. She didn’t want anything to happen to her family, but she had to take care of herself or else she would cease to exist.
‘Do what you have to do.’ She didn’t mean that, but what else could she say. She began to take the clothes and put them in the suitcase.
‘You don’t get to take the clothes I bought you. You want to leave? You leave with nothing!’ He hated losing. He was in control, not her.
She stopped packing. ‘You’re right, these are not my real size clothing anyway!’
His nose flared, he was losing control. ‘Who do you think you are?’ He stepped forward towards her as if to strike her. ‘I’ll…’
‘You’ll what?’ she asked boldly even though she was terrified.
‘Kill you!’ He was livid.
She stood up and faced him. She loved him dearly it hurt, but she couldn’t keep denying who she was for him. ‘Go ahead. I’d rather die, than live another day denying who I am.’
He was silent a moment. He wasn’t expecting that response. He wanted fear and obedience, but Angelica was no longer a caged animal. She was fighting for her freedom; she was putting herself first for a change. If it meant a life without him, then that was how it was going to be. 

What’s happening end of this week?

So if you haven’t already read the first part to the Unexpected Love series, now is your chance to get it free. Starting from the 15th of July until the 20th, you can download it for free! So hurry up and get your copy. 
Not much else to tell you about what’s happening this week with regards to books and my work. I will definitely be working on the next story which I’m excited about it, but have no idea how it will go. I guess that’s the exciting part of writing.  So keep your eyes out for the new book.

On a personal note - A little bit about me and the crazy thing I did this week.

So Iris decided to cut her locks. Yep. I’ve been growing my natural hair for a good four years and then suddenly I felt the need to get rid of it all. I guess I was tired of the long process of maintaining it and then never having it out in the open. Now I just wash and go, it’s brilliant. So here are a couple photos of my new hairstyle :-).

As always stay blessed!

So what’s happening this week?

Well quite a bit. My Loving You series has been proofread and now it’s ready to go for editing. It hasn’t been easy finding an editor, but I think I’ll finally find the right person. I’m really excited about having this story in print. I think a few more of my stories will follow in the same direction.

 The unexpected Love series is complete. Yes!

This is exactly how I feel hehe! 

It’s always nice to finish a series, but sad at the same time. I really do miss the characters. I’ve decided that this series will only have two parts because I feel the story is complete. Yes, my stories are usually in three’s, but this one has ended. I don't feel it's necessary to drag it out. I really enjoyed writing it, and felt empowered by Angelica. We all go through struggles, and at times we might feel weak or be seen as weak, but the human spirit always prevails. At least I believe it does. Expect the story out soon!

More on the book front. 

Starting on the 7th of July a few of my stories will be going free on Amazon. This is your chance to get a copy of the books free. The promo will run for five days, so make sure you download the books during that time. Some of the books that will be free are.

I hope you take this opportunity to download a free copy :-).

What are my plans for the next coming weeks?

Write, write and write some more. I will be starting my new paranormal series. I’m excited about it. So watch this space!

That’s about it for now. Short and sweet, but before I go I would like to answer a question that has been asked a few times.

 Why do I write short novellas with cliffhangers instead of full novels?

The reason I do that is how my mind words. I write a story until there’s no story left to tell. When I reach the end and there’s a cliffhanger, I honestly don’t know what’s going to happen in the second book. There is something about starting on a blank page for me. It’s as if I get new ideas by starting again. It’s weird and probably something I’ve taught myself to do, but it works. I have tried to get my stories to an end, but I always find that I’m forcing the story, and it never works.

I hope that has answered the question. I think every writer writes differently, and in the future I would really like to make my works longer. If not, I will just put all three volumes into one, for those who prefer longer works. It might just take a little bit longer.

On the personal

I will be going out to see a play tomorrow evening, (Betty Blue Eyes), which will be interesting. It’s always nice to go to the theatre. I’m hopeful that the weekend will bring good weather as we’re – by that I mean family – are off to a BBQ. I guess even if it rains we’ll still be having a BBQ. It would just be nice to have the sunshine.
I hope you have a great week and weekend!
