I have some thrilling news to share with you—I have a new release coming soon and I couldn’t be more excited!

Isn’t it stunning?

The Return is a story that combines romance, suspense, and family secrets.

I once again a felt the tug to explore a reverse age gap romance, where the stakes are high, and forbidden love takes center stage.

Lyrics never lie. And some lovers never let go.

In the idyllic town of Cherry River, secrets simmer beneath the surface, threatening to unravel the lives of those entangled in a web of love and betrayal.

For singer Sloan Callow, returning to his lakeside cabin marks a desperate bid to shield his orphaned sister from the clutches of their dangerous brother, Nathan. Little does Sloan know that fate has a different plan in store.

Reunited with Sofie Belle—Nathan’s former flame and the object of his hidden desires—Sloan’s world ignites with passion and danger. But, as their forbidden connection deepens, Nathan’s sinister threats escalate, casting a shadow over their blossoming secret romance.

When a group of ruthless men descends upon the cabin, their intent to seize young Adélaïde sends Sloan and Sofie into a fight for survival. Against the backdrop of a relentless motorcycle gang and buried family secrets, they must rely on each other’s strength to protect what they hold dear.

Mark your calendars because The Return will be available on June 27th!


I wanted to provide you with some important information regarding The Return. This novel may seem familiar to some of you, and that’s because it was previously published in 2019 as a novella titled Teach Me, which was part of the Summer of Secrets series. However, I want to assure you that The Return is not a simple re-release, but rather a significantly expanded version of the original story.

The Summer of Secrets series, which I collaborated on with other authors, has since been unpublished. However, I couldn’t bear to let a story that holds a special place in my heart disappear entirely. To breathe new life into Teach Me, I have not only changed the names of the characters but also doubled the word count, resulting in a completely fresh and captivating story.

While the heart and essence of the original novella remain intact, the additional words have allowed me to delve deeper into the plot, characters, and emotional nuances. This expansion has transformed The Return into what I consider a brand new and immersive reading experience.

I want to express my gratitude to those of you who have supported me throughout this journey, and I hope you will embrace The Return with open arms, appreciating it as a distinct and enhanced version of the story you may have previously encountered. It is my sincerest hope that this expanded edition will captivate and resonate with you on a deeper level.

Thank you for your understanding, and I can’t wait for you to embark on this thrilling and emotional journey once again with The Return.
