Carolina Booty

Jaxie Parker works for one of the best ad agencies in Atlanta and and thrives in the upscale fast lane. She loves everything about the big city including her power-packed days and party-filled nights. But life as she knows it comes to a screetching halt when the boss puts her in charge of the firm's annual pro bono project, which is to revitalize a small town.

Unfortunately, Rumton, South Carolina doesn't have a mall or nightclub, much less a nail salon. For that matter, there's no hotel, either. Jaxie ends up rooming with an old man in an even older house that he shares with a dog and a thieving raccoon.

Just when Jaxie thinks that she's landed in a dreadfully uneventful place, things heat up pretty fast. There's much more to Rumton than meets the eye. Sexy men. A sinister plot to steal from the town. A raging wind storm. Quirky townspeople. And loads of astonishing pirate history. It all adds up to some major Carolina booty!

"Ocean's latest is delightful and entertaining." –Romantic Times BOOKreviews


Choosing Charleston

Fleeing a lousy husband and chaotic northern life, Carly Stone needs to get out of town. Craving a major dose of her mamma's famous cooking and her daddy's upbeat life lessons, she heads to historic Charleston, SC.

While she's welcomed home with wide-open arms, she's shocked to find that things are much different than when she left a year ago. For starters, a land developer is erecting a building supply superstore that will surely put her family's small business out of business. Her wacky grandmother has moved in and keeps confusing her with her famous twin sister, Jenny. And to complicate matters, Carly is outrageously attracted to a construction worker when she should be figuring out how to save her marriage.

"A must read for anyone who enjoys mystery, laughter and a good love story." – SC Woman magazine

Mayhem in Myrtle Beach

Sherwood, a recent college grad with an accounting degree, is desperate for a job. But she hates numbers and wants to do anything but accounting. After moving to Virginia, she applies for an activities job at the Great Wings retirement community – even though her qualifications are nonexistent. Against all logic, the director hires Sherwood, pending a week-long trial period.

Jane Sullivan has a group of forty-six seniors heading to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for bus tour and they need a group leader. Sherwood happily accepts, thinking that it will be like a free vacation. After all, she told the director, seniors are no different than anyone else. They're just older.

But Sherwood's visions of bliss vanish when she realizes she's in over her head. Her group is demanding and crabby. One of them goes missing. And to complicate things, the bus driver turns out to be a college study buddy who has lost the nerdy glasses and now looks totally hot in his uniform.

ACTION TITLES -- The Jersey Barnes thriller series

Southern Fatality

Southern FatalityJersey Barnes has retired to the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina, where she bought a bar and lives in the apartment above it. She left a risk-filled career as a private security specialist, and is really looking forward to leaving home without a weapon. But when she agrees to do a favor for a friend, the routine surveillance job lands Jersey in the middle of a double-kidnapping, a cover up, the privatization of social security, and a scheme that could steal multi-millions from hardworking Americans.

With help from her sexy business partner - a Lumbee Indian with raging hot looks, unsolicited input from her zany father and his poker buddies, a hacker named Soup, and a faithful dog, Jersey sets out to prevent what could be the crime of the century.

"…sexy, fast-paced adventure…keeps readers entertained right up to the explosive ending." --Publishers Weekly

Southern Poison

Southern PoisonThe last time Jersey Barnes tried to quit working and leave home without a weapon, she ended up in the middle of a high-stakes cover up and double-kidnapping. This time, though, her early retirement is for real. There was a party with a cake and everything. Life is good – until her former government handler shows up with other ideas.

Her boating plans on hold yet again, Jersey goes back to work to help root out a terrorist threat. In the process, she lands in the middle of a more sinister plot than she ever could have imagined. Things aren't any more relaxing in her personal life, either. Just as Jersey is falling for her hunky pub manager, Ox, the ex-wife flies into Wilmington to reclaim him.

Southern Poison moves at breakneck speed as Jersey must save herself from an assassin, stop an evil chemist, keep her trouble-making father and his poker buddies out of jail, untangle a steamy romance, and maybe—just maybe—retire.

"...a thriller in every sense of the word. Fast-paced, wickedly funny, vicious, violent, and packed with believable characters caught up in a series of escalating adventures that leave you breathless." -- J. Mayberry, ITW

Southern Peril

Southern PerilJersey Barnes, the South's most unconventional security specialist, has finally managed to leave home without a weapon. Her retirement is for real this time, and all she wants to do is stuff her government-bought boobs into a bikini top and vacation someplace tropical. Before she has a chance to pack a suitcase, a judge friend calls in a favor. The judge thinks her brother, Morgan, is in trouble.

Morgan insists that nothing is wrong. All he wants to do is succeed with the inheritance from his father – Wilmington's most hip eatery. But when someone tries to kill him, Morgan confides in Jersey. His father may have been murdered, and Morgan thinks he knows why.

While trying to keep her eccentric father out of trouble, and exploring a steamy new relationship with her business-partner-turned-lover, Jersey throws herself back into action. Forgetting about frozen bannnna drinks and seaside massages, she sets out to repay the judge by saving both Morgan and the family restaurant. Maybe then she can get back to packing that suitcase.

"...Ocean blends smart whodunit action with the humorous hijinks of Jersey's spunky 80-year-old dad." -- Publishers Weekly
