The Man of My Dreams (Book 1 in The Dream Series)

Ever since the death of her parents at the age of 17, Cassie has been dreaming about a dark haired man. He always comes to her in times of trouble to comfort her and help her through the toughest of days. But now after the devastating break up with her boyfriend, Cassie struggles with separating reality from her dreams.

During a trip to her family beach house, her dream man becomes her lover and Cassie finds herself longing for this man to be in her life. But trying to find out the truth about him leaves her questioning her very existence and sanity.

She is convinced her dream man is real and connected to a string of macabre murders over the last 20 years. Fearing for her life, Cassie prays she is right about him and that he can save her before it is too late.

Note from author: WARNING : This mentions an episode of sexual abuse.

Be Careful What You Wish For (Book 2 in The Dream Series)

Alexi is a Vampire trying to live a human existence, he even has a human wife. The Vampire secret is paramount and cohabiting with humans - unless you intend on turning them, just isn't done. Can Alexi protect his beloved Cassandra from the would-be enforcers of this law or will he lose her forever?

The Chosen One (Book 3 in The Dream Series)

Trying to exist undetected in a human world, with a human family is hard enough when you are a Vampire - but finding out your son is also the fabled Chosen One, makes things even more difficult.

Will Alexi's love be enough to protect his precious child from the powers that be and prevent fate from dealing him yet another cruel blow? Or is he condemned to live out eternity alone...

Succubus: An Erotic Companion (Book 4 in The Dream Series)

Succubus is book 4 in The Dream Series, written as a novella to fill in a few gaps – which you know by now is something I love to do. Rather than continuing the plot from book 3, it takes the reader back in time to just after Elizabeth “dies.” You’ll find it a bit more erotic than the first three books, so fair warning!

What happened in the 400 years between Elizabeth dying in her castle tomb and the birth of The Chosen One? Take an erotic step back in time and learn more about what Elizabeth and Sebastian were up to as they prepared for that monumental event to take place.

They certainly didn't get bored while they were waiting, that's for sure!

A Match Made in Hell (Book 5 in The Dream Series)

Gabriel is beyond furious when he discovers Chloe was responsible for the untimely demise of his beloved brother. Will Moyra succeed in protecting her friend from the four hundred-year-old vampire intent on vengeance?

The evil Elizabeth has betrayed them all. Her deceit could find Sebastian burning in the fires of hell for all eternity and force a wedge between Alexi and Cassandra forever.

#GlutenFree #DairyFree #LowCarb Pancakes

Since a few of my friends are dairy intolerant, I decided to try and create a dairy free pancake recipe. I made them this morning and they were delicious. Of course I topped ours with loads of butter and the kids also had 100% pure maple syrup on theirs.


1 and 1/2 cups of blanched almond meal (you could probably use coconut flour, but use less or more liquid)
1 Tablespoon of psyllium husk powder
1 tsp baking powder (GF)
2 eggs
1 Teaspoon of vanilla essence
15 drops of stevia ( you could use a little honey or maple syrup instead, but it will add to the carbs/sugar content)
1 cup of coconut cream.

I put the dry ingredients into a bowl, break in the eggs and then the stevia, vanilla and coconut cream and mix. Either drop spoonfuls (if you want pikelet sized) or pour into a non-stick frying pan, on a low heat, greased with a little coconut oil. Once the bubbles start to burst (approx a minute) flip and then cook for approx another minute.

I often make a double mixture and then keep the leftover pancakes in the fridge. You can just pop them in the microwave the next morning and breakfast is made!

#LCHF - it's been a year!

I have now been living the LCHF lifestyle for a year. I am so grateful that I discovered this way of eating when I did. Not only has it given me my life back, but it has also helped my kids with some of their own health issues. Hubby still fiercely holds onto his gluten and carby foods and I have no intention of trying to force him to eat how I do - not that I could anyway. He is the only person I know that is more stubborn and determined than I am. But I am hopeful that down the track when he realises what it has done for me, he may think twice and give the lifestyle a chance. I feed the kids this way as much as possible, but now that I work Sundays and he is in charge of them, they tend to eat his way. I am ok with that, as long as he doesn't load them up with sugar as he's done in the past and keeps Bella away from gluten. 

It's been an interesting week. Hubby had a 3 day weekend (which was nice considering he normally works a 60+ hour week) and we had a Breaking Bad marathon. Have I mentioned that I have a highly addictive personality? If I find an author, actor, movie or TV series that I like, I then set out to read/watch anything that I can get my hands on. I've had this obsession since childhood and needless to say, it hasn't gotten any better as I've aged! Anyway, we watched the entire 6 seasons and now I am feeling a little flat and having BB withdrawals, or even a BB hangover. Other shows/movies/books that I've been obsessed with in the past include Moonlight, Dexter, Outlander, True Blood and books by James Herbert, Victoria Holt and Barbara Erskine - to name a few. The endings play on my mind and I start to wonder what happens to the characters after the show and begin to understand how my readers feel and why they keep asking me when the next book will be out!

This week was tough on my Aspie son as he's been without both his laptop and his Wiiu Gamepad. Both were damaged as he is rough on his gadgets and were away getting repaired. It was hard for him as it coincided with the much awaited Mario game being released that he'd saved up to buy, but couldn't play it for a few days. His frustration was alleviated a little by getting to meet his favourite author and get his latest book signed. He's been a big fan of Andy Griffiths for a while now and has read every book he could get his hands on. We stood in line for an hour and a half so he could meet him and get his photo taken. Looks like my obsessive personality may have passed on to him.

Beautiful Bella has been her usual whirlwind self. She's gorgeous and resembles an angel, but she is totally the opposite, believe me. She hates order and lives for chaos. Nothing is ever put away and she spends her day dragging out toys, desperately trying to change her clothes and looking for things that she is not allowed to touch or get into. It is exhausting to say the least, but she is also extremely entertaining and such brilliant company. One smile, cuddle or kiss and she is forgiven, it seems.

The weather is starting to warm up again and we are all hanging out to being able to get back into the pool. It's something we all do together as a family - quality time at its best! Both of the kids are water babies and hubby and I love nothing better than a nice cool swim on a hot summers day. No doubt, there will be a few of them in the near future.

I know if I am a bit more disciplined and work at it, I will continue to improve and my health will keep getting better and better. I've come a long way in 12 months and will keep singing LCHF's praises :)

#1 in 3 Categories!!!!!!

Well I have come close before, but this is the first time I have hit #1 in any of the sub-genres :)

After being separated from my mother twice in my 10 short years of life, I was more than a little excited at the prospect of being reunited with her again. Unfortunately, my elation was to be short-lived when the visits to my bedroom started. Threatening to send me away again or turn the loaded gun he kept in my wardrobe on us all, he kept my silence.

It was to be another six years until I escaped the abuse of my mother’s husband and another 30 years before I was able to bring him to justice. Ironically, the one person that should have protected me and helped me fight to stop him, my mother, is still with him to this day.

Four years ago on July 26th, Slave, the first book in Sherri Hayes' Bestselling Finding Anna Series hit the market.

Genre: BDSM Romance Series
Buy Links: Amazon | B&N | iBooks

Stephan has lived the lifestyle of a Dominant for five years. After several rebellious teenage years, it gave him the stability and control he had been seeking after his parent’s death.

As president of a not-for-profit foundation, he knows what his future holds and what he wants out of life. All that changes when a simple lunch with his college friend and Mentor, Darren, leads him to buying a slave.

Thrust into a situation he never thought he’d be in, Stephan can’t walk away. He is compelled to help this girl in the only way he knows how.

Brianna knows only one thing, she is a slave. She has nothing. She is nothing.

Can Stephan help Brianna realize that she is much more than just a Slave?

Have Fallen In Love

Slave now has over 100 4 and 5 star ratings son Amazon.

"Slave was a very intense read for me, beautifully written, and left me wanting more." 

~In The Book

"Describing this read is simple- AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! I found every aspect of it to be so good. I couldn't put it down."



Slave is the first book in Sherri's Finding Anna Series. A 4 book serial series that follows Brianna and Stephan through their journey.

"I talk to a lot of readers and the one thing they consistently say is that this is unlike anything they've ever read before. Some see the cover of Slave and assume it's a traditional slave/capture story. That couldn't be further from the truth. Slave, and the rest of Finding Anna, is about a young woman who has to figure out who she is and what she wants to do with her life after suffering through immense trauma. Finding Anna starts where all the other slave/capture stories end...with the rescue." ~Sherri Hayes

As Brianna comes to terms with the realization that she is no longer a slave, she must figure out what she wants for her life. Forgetting her past isn’t an option. It is an integral part of who she is now, and it will forever shape her view of life. The one thing she knows is that she cannot imagine her life without the man who saved her, but can she be what he needs? 

Stephan never imagined falling in love with the woman he rescued, but the thought of her no longer being part of his life is physically painful. The scars from her past continue to haunt her, and he is helpless to stop them. All he can do is try to help her work through the traumas of her past. Can he be everything she needs and help her move on?

The two must figure out how to navigate not only their relationship with each other, but also the outside world. A friend from Brianna’s past shows up where she least expects them, and Uncle Richard continues to enforce his well-meaning agenda to get Brianna more traditional help. As forces, both friend and foe, threaten to tear them apart, Stephan and Brianna have to navigate the turbulent waters and find what they need in each other.

For the last two months, Brianna has discovered something she never thought she would again. Hope. After the horror of being Ian’s slave for ten months, a fate she never imagined she’d escape, it feels as if she is living a dream. She has freedom she hadn’t expected to have again, and she wakes up every morning not fearing what the day will bring. There is also Stephan. The man who saved her from the daily torture she had to endure at the hands of Ian and his friends. The same man who makes her heart race with just the thought of him. Life is good.

Outside forces are determined to conspire against them, however. When Brianna’s father shows up on her doorstep, it sends her world spiraling out of control. He brings with him new information about how Brianna ended up in Ian’s clutches, but will it make a difference? Will Stephan be able to find a way to make Ian pay for all he made Brianna suffer? As Brianna and Stephan try to find out the truth, their relationship is tested. She is forced to face her past head on, and deal with the ugly reality of what happened to her. Will Stephan’s love be enough to see her through her newest challenge, or will the fragile trust they’ve built come crumbling down around them as the truth makes itself known. 

Brianna is lost for the fourth time in her life. Each time was unexpected, and each changed the course of her future. The first life-altering event occurred when her mother died, and she moved to Minnesota to live with her father.

The second was when she was kidnapped at the age of seventeen and forced to be a slave. She would never forget those ten months. Brianna thought her life was over.

Everything changed again the day Stephan steamrolled into her life and brought her home to live with him. She had no idea what to expect—what life with her new Master would hold. That first month with Stephan was, in some ways, more confusing than the prior ten. As a slave, she’d known her place. With Stephan everything was new and different. He’d given her freedom and so much more.

Five months after Stephan rescued her, Brianna once again finds her life flipped upside down.

In this fourth, and final, installment of Finding Anna, Brianna must unearth strength she never knew she possessed. Stephan can no longer protect her from the outside world. She must learn to trust herself, embrace who she is, and discover who she wants to be. Only by facing her demons can Brianna find true happiness and peace.
