I’ve always been driven to succeed at everything I’ve tried. I graduated secondary school at age thirteen, earned a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering at sixteen, and finished my medical residency at twenty-two. My focus as Dr. Galen Hunter Christensen has been traveling the world to give medical care to people in remote villages…until now.
Sierra Jade Evans has pulled me into her orbit. This last year I’ve been preoccupied with finding ways to talk with her, wanting to know everything about her. Our likes and dislikes are almost identical, and the differences only complement our personalities, but we do have two problems: Her ability to trust has been shaken, and she’s hung up on being six years my senior.
Fate finally led us to spend one night exploring what could be, before sending us separate directions. But now I’m back.
I have an unquenchable thirst for Sierra—the only woman to ever fill the void in my life and not object to my dominance and kinky desires. I know I’ll have to work a miracle to gain her trust, but I’ll do anything to keep her close and make her mine.

I broke away from his contact and walked toward the window, needing a moment to clear my mind and gather my strength. His kisses had thoroughly left me breathless and weak-kneed. I watched as an inbound plane lined up its approach and inched closer to the ground for a landing.
Looking into the window a little more carefully, I could see my reflection. I was taken aback at how swollen my lips had become from the intensity of his kisses. I jumped when I noticed Galen’s presence behind me.
His eyes met mine in the reflection. He eased toward me but I didn’t run. I’m not sure that I could have if I wanted to. “What’s keeping you from giving in to your desires, Sierra? You would not be here with me now if you didn’t want to take this further. You can’t deny what exists between us, and neither can I.”
His arms came around my waist. I’d resisted his charms for the past few hours, but his continued soft caresses and chaste kisses against my shoulders and neck were driving me insane, not to mention his smoldering eyes and the to-die-for British accent. “Age is but a number, love. You need to get out of your head and give yourself permission to take what you want, what you need. Don’t deny our chemistry. The sparks surrounding us are enough to start a fire; one I can assure you will burn brighter than you’ve ever felt in your life.”
I grew up in a small town in South Florida and moved to Central Florida to attend college. There, I married my friend, love, and soul mate and still reside with our amazing son, and a feisty, four-legged little boy.
In my books, I draw on my work background in healthcare and business, along with my husband’s engineering knowledge.
I write in all areas of Romance from tame to off the charts steamy with tons of “edge of your seat” suspense mixed in. If you’re looking for tame, swoon-worthy characters, with some historical and paranormal elements, be sure to check out the Remembrance Series. If your preference is for hot dominant alpha males, then you’ll want to give Elusive, A Learning Series, Need Series, and Titan Security a try. Each Need and Titan book are standalone novels with HEAs, no cliffhangers, plus loaded with edge of your seat, heart pounding suspense.
I try to make my writing very personal and close to my heart. Regular life is the inspiration for my books, through watching others to living it, but my imagination takes it to new heights, opening up possibilities that would normally not exist.
In my downtime, I’m a voracious reader. I love to spend time with my family, cook, bbq, create new recipes, play the piano, walk, ride bikes, do cross stitch, dance, and sing. I enjoy the fact that we live in Amusement Park Central and so close to the beach!
