The Maya jaguar shifters have lived in the Sonoran Desert of Mexico for hundreds of years away from human eyes. However, their homeland is threatened by human progress and greed. The building of maqiladoras, (manufacturing plants), by a Mexican Cartel creates jobs and income for the quiet, colonial town of Alamos, Sonora. However, it will cost the La Avona shifter tribe their home and turn Sonora, one of the safest states for tourists, into a drug war zone. Alejandro Aapo Cadmael is the son of King Gabor Cadmael, who is training him to lead the tribe and help him choose a worthy queen. Alejandro has other plans, he prefers to hang around the music and art loving humans in Alamos, and play his guitar. When his father dies unexpectedly, Alejandro is forced to become king and lead his people, whether he has a queen at his side or not.
Regina Hightower, a human conservationist from Tucson, AZ arrives in Novajoa, Sonora on her way to Alamos for the ten day Arts and Music Festival. She gets more than she bargains for when a luggage mix up puts her on the radar of drug coyotes who think she has stolen from them. When Alejandro mysteriously sees and feels Regina's cries for help from thirty miles away before it happens, he rushes to Novajoa to save her. Can this reluctant king lead his people, protect his homeland from the cartel and find his queen?

BIOGRAPHY Author of paranormal, interracial, diverse and contemporary romance.
I was born in New Orleans, LA, and raised by a single mom who taught me a lot and gave me a good foundation. My husband inspired me to write romance. He is truly a wonderful man who makes me laugh, taught me to love myself, stayed with me through hell and high water and has been the best friend I never knew I needed.
Besides being an author, I am also a personal trainer, a bodybuilder and I took 2nd place overall in my first Women's Bodybuilding competition in 2014, fulfilling a dream I had as a teenager. I completed it in my 40s! However, life happens and two years ago I needed back surgery and this year, neck surgery. I don't like taking pain pills, so I had my doctor put in permanent spine stimulation. I literally have to 'charge' my battery in my back every Friday!
I am also a licensed Zumba instructor, a yoga instructor, Tai Chi, and a group fitness trainer.
I am licensed and certified to teach ESL classes (English as a second language), to young students ages 5-12. I am working with students in Beijing, China, via the Internet.
I took a long break from writing for about 8 years, and I may write about that someday. I am so happy to get back to doing what I love!
Every so often, I reinvent myself. I never stop learning, growing, changing, all to become a better version of myself. I now live in Warner Robins, GA with my husband and two of our six kids, our pets, three cats and an 80 lb German Shepard, named Bella.
