THE PREFECT FIND

(Brown Girls Books, 2016)

Jenna Jones, former It-girl fashion editor, is broke and desperate for a second chance. When she’s dumped by her longtime fiancé and fired from Darling magazine, she begs for a job at StyleZine.com from her old arch nemesis, Darcy Vale. But Jenna soon realizes she’s in over her head. She’s working with digital-savvy millennials half her age, has never even “Twittered,” and pretends to still be a Fashion Somebody while living a style lie (she sold her designer wardrobe to afford her sketched-out studio, and now quietly wears Walmart’s finest). Worse? The twenty-two-year-old videographer assigned to shoot her web series is driving her crazy. Wildly sexy with a smile Jenna feels in her thighs, Eric Combs is way off-limits – but almost too delicious to resist.

THE ACCIDENTAL DIVA

(Putnam, 2004)

Being a diva isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Just ask Billie Burke. Brainy, beautiful, and at the top of her game, she’s the beauty editor at the world’s leading fashion magazine, where paying tribute to the perfect pink lip gloss is serious business. Trouble is, all this corporate climbing and party-hopping has left her with migraine headaches – and a long, lonely bout of celibacy. Enter Jay Lane – a gorgeous performance artist who came up in a grisly ‘hood in a part of Brooklyn completely foreign to Billie. In no time, this beauty expert’s nights are bubbling over with hot passion…and she’s caught in an affair that’s as addictive and crazy as the city itself.
