I’m very excited about the release of my latest book Unexpected Eden coming out on April 24th. When I created Eden from a poem by Emily Dickinson, I had no idea how alive the planet would become. It is a small planet in another solar system that has a warm humid climate, causing an all-around jungle environment except for rare instances.
This small planet has a number of cities and outside the oldest city, Naralina, are two small compounds, Haven and Loraleaf. They are very different in look and birth. Haven was created by Wareson and Nassic, former leaders of Naralina who were forced from the city when false claims were made against them.
They took a nude cruise on Earth to woo their beloved, Erin, in the book Cruise into Eden. Haven is a walled-in compound similar to the city, but not built on a mountain as Naralina is. Haven is nestled deep in the jungle, hidden. Loraleaf was created by Jahl, Sandale and Khaos. These three were average citizens, two of them outcasts for one reason or another and they built a small town high in the trees. They left Naralina voluntarily, preferring the freedom and dangers of the jungle. They had to go to Earth unexpectedly to save their chosen one, Serena, but in Unexpected Eden, they have to figure out how to keep her once they have her.
I’ve barely finished writing this book and I’m already excited about the next in the series.
Blurb of Unexpected Eden:
Serena Upton wonders if she’s been transported into one of the science fiction movies she works on with her pyrotechnics skill. It certainly seems so when she’s rescued by three hot, naked men from another planet. She’s whisked away to Loraleaf, their home in the jungle of Eden, with the expectation that she will become their beloved. As they cater to her in every way, she begins to understand what it means to be their chosen one.
Jahl and Khaos risked everything, even the brother of their heart, to bring Serena home, but grief and self-doubt, etched in stone by their own families, seems insurmountable. Their only hope is that she can fill the void in their lives. They succeed in sweeping her up in their erotic passion, but they are unable to capture her heart.
Though Serena cares for Jahl and Khaos, she’s convinced she’s not the answer to their damaged souls. It’s better that she return to her family on Earth before she cares too much. That is, if she doesn’t already.

Excerpt from Unexpected Eden:
Too much hurt, too much sorrow buried inside Khaos forced its way to the surface and released itself into her willing arms.
Her hand on his back stroked, soothing his pain. Her body, clothed in her silky wrap, pressed against his as if she would take his sorrow into herself. Wetness on his shoulder distracted him from his pain as concern for her pushed into his mind.
He pulled away to gaze into her face. Tear tracks ran down her cheek. He cupped her chin and swallowed to force his voice to a whisper. “Why do you cry?”
She smiled pitifully at him. “Because I feel bad that you are so sad. Does that make any sense?”
He nodded, unable to say anything as her sweet confession closed his throat. In the moonlight, her eyes sparkled, their wet sheen catching the silver light. She was too tempting, like a siren calling to him. He risked everything, unable to resist, and lowered his lips to hers.
Her warm breath melded with his as he tasted her. Her tongue begged entrance to his mouth and he willingly opened to her, allowing her to explore. Her sweetness was intoxicating. He never wanted the kiss to end.
He moved his hand to the back of her head, cradling her, holding her mouth to his own. Tentatively, he slid his tongue inside, fully tasting her sweetness. She groaned as he explored, indulging his need for her. But he wanted more, to taste every part of her.
Pulling back, he nibbled at her lips before tasting her jaw, her neck, the top of her shoulder. He needed all of her. He deftly untied the material behind her neck, letting it fall to the side as he rolled her to her back.
The moonlight shone down. As he lifted away, her beauty was displayed before him. He stared, unable to tear his gaze from his chosen one. Her belly rose and fell in rhythm with her heated breathing, her hip bones just making themselves known as she exhaled.
He moved his gaze to her face. “Yes.”
“Are you okay?”
He smiled, the movement filling him with joy. “More than okay. I’m in love.”
