A Secret Santa drawing offers more than a simple gift exchange for two office workers.

Colleagues Ford and Vaughan have long admired each other from afar, but Vaughan's shyness and Ford's emotional hang-ups have meant that neither has made a move. That all changes when they draw each other's name in the office Secret Santa.

Bending to Lucas, book 2 of the Dungeon series - cover reveal

I'm soooo excited about this one. I love Wesley and Connor, but I have a soft spot in my heart for Lucas and this is his story. And this cover...oh, my, it suits him like a glove. So...Ta-da-da-dam!!!


Bending to Lucas, book 2 of The Dungeon series: 

Lucas Brentwood is the proud half-owner of The Dungeon, one of the most exclusive kink clubs in town. When an attack shakes their little BDSM community, Lucas becomes the main suspect. 

Zack White is the officer in charge of the investigation, but his twenty years on the force did not prepare him for meeting the Dom in charge of the club or for the attraction he feels for the man. Unfamiliar with the lifestyle, he puts himself in Lucas’ hands for a session of submission and discovery.

With his reputation and his freedom at stake can Lucas find a way to help Zack and his investigation? Or will the frail bond of trust between them crumble under the pressure?








And not only that I have this wonderful, wonderful cover, but I am happy to announce that Bending to Lucas will out on November 15th, and it is already available for pre-order.

Travel and Spice by Alina Popescu with review


OMG, OMG, OMG! Travel and Spice  here and it's great!!


Review: 5*

I loved Br0th3rly, first book of the series. Travel and Spice is even better.

Travel and Spice it's Dante's story, a world traveler blogger, who comes home for his high school reunion. There, he meets Tommy, his high school crush and things get hot from here. Dante is a well rounded character, and his thoughts and actions come naturally. He craves a meaningful relationship, but his globe-trotting job had always been in the way. Until Tommy. Oh, and the chemistry between them is sizzling!

There is some angst, much less than I come to expect from Alina, but all in all it's such a sweet read! Also, the end was not what I was expecting! I will not spoil for any of you, but rest assured, it's HEA.



Famous travel blogger returns home to have his life thrown off balance by his high school crush.

Dante Sandford is at the top of his game. He's paid to travel the world and share his spicy stories on his blog. He's still young, gorgeous, and confident. When Dante's high school reunion knocks on his door, he's reminded of everything he's lacking. More so when his old crush, Tommy Clancy, makes a pass at him. Or when the hot romance blows in Dante's face because of his lifestyle.

Tommy has always been the hottest man in Riverbrook. Possibly the world. He's stunning, smart, and the kindest soul Dante has ever known. He's also read Dante's blog along with all his steamy encounters. No wonder Tommy doesn't trust Dante for anything more than a casual hookup.

Dante returns to hometown Riverbrook to face his past of bullying and feeling like a misfit. He instead ends up dealing with the reality of being a travel blogger: relationships are close to impossible. That won't stop Dante from trying to convince Tommy his short-lived flings are not by design.

Valentin Alekseev prays for death while fleeing for his life, hunted for secrets he shouldn't be aware of. With his home in ruins and his master killed, he should know better than to bring innocent bystanders into his life. But Fate has other plans.

Twenty-seven years old, Shawn Dougal never thought he’d fall for a man, much less a bloodsucker. But how else can he explain the sudden lapse in judgment that has him traveling halfway across Romania, risking his own life to save Valentin’s? And will breaking and entering a centuries-old castle full of vampires be enough to get his lover back?

Happy release day to me!

I'm very excited to announce that Perfect Timing is now live!

This story is very dear to me. It is the first one I published and the second I've ever written, and, to me, it has everything: ruthless vampires, exiled shifters and it is set in Romania. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
