Every powerful man needs his woman.

All retired NFL star Nasir St. Cyr wants is to be respected more than for his athletic talent on the field. To be seen as more than a fatherless boy with a troubled past. To be seen as a man who can lead a city. And to not lose the only woman he's ever loved.

All single parent Regina Hargrove wants is to be respected as a hard-working woman. To be seen as worthy of walking by Nasir's side. To not be judged for her choices and past mistakes. And to be totally owned by the only man she craves but doesn't entirely trust.

All he has is six months.

Nasir is on borrowed time to gain the city's trust and her heart. As he battles two powerful families for a seat at the head of the table, old wounds are re-opened, and new revelations threaten to destroy the love of the woman he needs by his side.

If he only realizes her love is all the power he needs before it's too late.

His time to love, her time to thrive.


My first memories of reading romance was when I was really young and I would sneak and read the Western love stories, my grandmother kept on her bedside table. Although I didn’t understand half of the words I read at the time, something about those books captured my attention and as I grew older, my love of romance expanded to other genres and I became a fan of anything remotely related to reading such as libraries, bookstores, and the coffeeshop around the corner. I had no idea I would ever write a romance novel and now I have written several with a passion for more. I love to travel and have lived in several cities, including New Orleans, Washington D.C. and Houston. I find inspiration for my stories from every place I have had the fortune to visit or inhabit. When I’m not obsessed with my latest characters or managing my own business, I love to spend time with myself, family, and friends doing whatever I can to create daily moments of enjoyment.
