Madrigal of Stars Available Soon!

Now that I’ve finished the Illicit Illusions series, I’m moving on to my next series, Love Forte! It will be way more lighthearted than Illicit Illusions and will focus on handsome musicians finding love when they least expect it.

Unlike this Illicit Illusions series, each book of the new series, Love Forte, can be read as a standalone or as part of the series. I’m also happy to announce that there will be guaranteed HEA with no cliffhangers for each book of the series. The characters from each book will continue to appear throughout the whole series, so I would recommend reading it in order to fully appreciate how everyone is connected—but again, it is not strictly necessary. It will also be written in alternating first person point of view, so it has a different feeling than the Illicit Illusions writing style.

The first book of the Love Forte series is Madrigal of Stars, about Iason, a famous musician who falls for Orion, a shy assistant curator. They are both sweethearts, and you’re going to love their cute romance. It’s got a touch of romantic comedy to it, so it should be fun!

It should have a winter release. For release schedule updates, please be sure to sign up for my newsletter below or follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

While you wait, you can get a special preview of Orion’s first chapter in my new Extra AF section, a password-protected VIP area for newsletter subscribers, where you can see monthly sneak peeks of upcoming books, deleted scenes, and works in progress.

In what world does a famous musician fall in love with a shy assistant curator like me? 

Iason Leyland is handsome, talented, and somehow interested in me of all people. There's just one little problem: I'm straight—or at least I thought I was. But when Iason looks at me like he wants to make passionate love to me, it becomes almost impossible to remember the reasons why I’m supposed to protest.

Is it really possible for my boring life to turn into a perfect fairy tale with a prince charming I never knew I wanted?


Even though I'm famous for my love songs, I've never been interested in romance. All that changes when I meet Orion at one of my concerts. It's love at first sight, and even if it doesn’t make sense, I know he’s the one for me. Every new thing I discover about him makes me fall for him even more. I’ll do whatever it takes to convince Orion that we’re supposed to be together.    

Who knew a cute art historian would be the one to make me believe in love again?

Madrigal of Stars is the first book in the Love Forte series, featuring gorgeous musicians finding the love of their life when they least expect it. Full of cute sweetness and sexy fun, every story ends with a guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone or as part of the series, but the stories are intertwined and are best read in order. Contains explicit M/M sexual scenes and language.
