Risking Ruin - Lawyer Bets on Love in Real Life and Loses

The tension in "Risking Ruin" is Marisa's attraction to Trip, but because he's a client, she is ethically prohibited from having a sexual relationship with him.  
She could lose her livelihood.

Come on, Mae, you say.  Would that really happen?
A lawyer is going to put her career in jeopardy for love?


Why, yes, yes it does happen.



Check out this article on AboveTheLaw to understand how getting involved with an irresistible client ended up being disastrous for one attorney.

Ex-Biglaw Partner Gets License Suspended For Sexual Relationship With Client




So, yup, nookie = license suspension. 

 Ouch.  

And it looks like when she was fired as General Counsel, he was fired as company president.  

So, Marisa and Trip have a real problem if they want to see each other.  

Find out if it works out for Marisa and Trip in "Borrowing Trouble," due for release in early August on Kindle and in paperback.

Borrowing Trouble -- Progress Update!

I'm totally jazzed that Borrowing Trouble is off to the proofreader!

Working with Marla of ProofingStyle!

I'm super impressed with her and know she's going to do a great job getting Borrowing Trouble in great shape for its August release.

If you're a follower of mine (bloggers welcome, but so are casual readers) and interested in an ARC for review, just drop me an email. 

ARCs go out in July.

I'm also happy to announce that I'm once again working with Figgy Gilbert on a cover.  


Figgy is a versatile illustrator with a great sense of humor.   (Seriously, check out her blog.  Not updated frequently, but it's fun to get a peek into a visual artist's doodles.)

Her custom cover for Risking Ruin wonderfully captured one of my favorite scenes -- Trip and Marisa's naughty dinner at Folk's Folly.
