Torn (ALL TORN UP book 1)

When I was five years old, I told Toren Grace I was going to marry him when I grew up. When I turned eighteen, I made it clear I still felt the same. The problem? He's fifteen years older than me, and he's my father's best friend.

Toren Grace. My father's best friend. My pseudo-uncle.
He's always been my rock. The one I should never, ever want.
But I do want him, and I love him.
I always have.

Tor's one of the good guys. Loving. Devoted. A strong moral compass. One kiss between us rocked him clear off his axis. Now, we can't forget how that kiss felt, and what it changed. Nothing will ever be the same between us. I'm not a little girl anymore, and he's everything I want.

I know he's struggling, but I'm determined. With a last name of Valentine, I've got cupid in my veins. The heart wants what the heart wants, and it doesn't care about age or how we met. My father cares, though. And he's the one person neither one of us can stand to hurt.

We're all being torn apart, and I don't know how to make everyone see that the wrongs are actually right.

** Can be read stand-alone.

** Please note, there is no blood relation in this book. There is no underage sex. This is a very slow burn journey about the transition from friends to love between two decent people. This is not erotica. **


Tied (All Torn Up Book 2)

Two lost and damaged souls.
Two hearts tied together by hope and tragedy.
An unexpected smile. A touch on scarred flesh.

A kiss on waiting lips.


My childhood was stolen when I was kidnapped at five years old. I've forgotten what love, happiness, and hope feels like. I am numb and lost, clinging to a childhood fairytale of a happily ever after.


He's possibly as damaged as I am. Maybe even more. He's scarred just as much on the inside as the outside. Just like me. Haunted by his own tragic past, he doesn't speak or smile. He saved my life that day he found me in the woods, and no words or smiles were needed. 

The moment our eyes met I knew he was the one - my knight in shining armor. My prince.
The one I knew would someday save me.
Together, we found love, hope, and a closeness that once felt impossible to have.

But can I save him from himself, and the twisted past that ties us together?

** Can be read stand-alone.

** This is a slow burn romance. It is not erotica, nor are there lots of sex scenes. This is about two lonely, damaged people learning to trust, love, and find happiness. 
** There is no cheating in this book.
** While the heroine was kidnapped and abused mentally and physically as a child, there are no graphic details about what happened to her out of respect to survivors who may read this book. This book focuses on hope and moving forward and there was no need to include graphic details.
