Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This story is so well crafted and told, I can't believe it's a debut novel. Heights of Desire may have opened the door to a new genre for me. Best book I've read all year. " - Jason Powell

- "This story is unusual and each chapter makes you change your mind about each character, only to have your mind changed again and again as you read further.
I will definitely recommend it to my friends and can't wait for the next book!"
- Carolina DelRio

- "This book is not to be missed and the author is one to watch out for." - Rosie Jencks

- "A woman/wife/mother who has it all...A chance encounter. She meets a stunning younger man. The attraction is undeniable. But is a path she should take?? She may mess up her entire life for a chance. This is a story that can't be put down. A roller coaster of emotions. Mad one minute, smiling the next." - Kimberly Mitchell

- "That disparaging, despairing and most desperate love we have all had the misery of accepting is between the pages of this book. Get ready to relive the days when nothing and no one meant anything and you rolled quite happily into hell in a hand basket, existing without morale or thought or honesty or righteousness of any sort. Best of all this kind of thing happens all the time-of course it does. It probably happened or will happen to you.
Can't put it down. Prepare to be obsessed."
- Sarah (Amazon)

- "This book is a jet ride, flying through the air at super speed. So much happens. Seriously. So. Much. Happens. Things happen then time passes and a bump in the night changes EVERYTHING. I did NOT see it coming." - Megan B511 (Amazon)
