Long story, but I created a new pen name for Nicci Carrera, and my book came out last Monday! It’s a  spicy romantic comedy.



When hard-driving CEO Rick Nordan arrives in Lobster Cove under strict orders from the family doctor to take a break, he discovers the rental house comes with a family attached, including one sexy dynamo of a caterer. She’s nothing like his ex-fiancée who wouldn’t sign a pre-nup, but maybe that means she’s the real deal and not a gold digger.

Maya Cruz wants life for her widowed mother to get easier by renting out her house during the summer. But teaching Mama business means explaining Rick isn’t a “guest,” he’s a “customer.” And the first thing Mama does is invite Rick to join their family activities. Having Rick around wouldn’t be so bad if Maya didn’t find him so attractive. The last time she fell for a vacationing millionaire, she had her heart broken.

She swore off his type, and he’s not looking, but this might be a recipe for love.

Short Excerpt:

Get a grip. She was just proving Rick right about her footwear with her clumsy performance.

“Those shoes aren’t made for lifting,” Rick said.

“These shoes make me your height. Perhaps you don’t like that.”

He chuckled. “Still got a few inches on you, Maya.”

“Still got a few hands on me too.”

He grinned, leaving his hands where they were. “Sorry.”

“Somehow your smile belies your apology.”

“Are you sorry?” His brows rose in inquiry, but his tight half-smile showed confidence that her answer would be no.
