Why do we love a love triangle trope?


What exactly is a love triangle?

It's when a character — usually the main character — has to choose between two potential love interests, both of whom usually seem equally appealing to them.


Why Do People Like Love Triangles?


 Many readers enjoy this trope because they like to feel special and feel as if they're being a rebel without actually being one. The thrill, the secrecy, the sizzle.

Imagine having two people trying to show you they cherish you more than the other. They are fighting for you — you are a person that warrants their ti...

welcome to the dark side...


There is a misconception that the dark side is bad, wrong or evil, but there are many positive characteristics to the dark feminine archetype. 

Women with these characteristics are powerful, assertive,  independent, sensual, intuitive, and have a deep connection to their  innermost desires and fears. 

Strong dark feminines have played an important role throughout history like Kali and Morrigan amongst others.

Woman who resonate with this archetype are usually more drawn to a darker romance novel, where they can relate to the main character. Usually an imperfect, powerful, sensual woman, who accepts her sensuality, looks for thrills and adventure and a man that...

Who is NIkki Evans- and why do we care?


Who is NIkki Evans- and why do we care?


Nikki Evans’s confidence lies in ashes. Devastated and physically scarred from the fire that claimed her parents’ lives, the wealthy reporter retreats to Puerto Vallarta with her unfaithful fiance. But a spark of hope reignites in her broken heart after interviewing a sexy rising-supertar chef. 


In fiction as in reality we bond with the woman's main character because we can relate. We understand what they are feeling and are secretly rooting for them. Romance novels  are much more than just about getting the guy, they are about how the character experiences a transformation within them, becoming better, stronger, more knowledgeable and standing up time and time again after they have fallen, and in the end, the breakthrough and growth within them is inevitable. These characters mirror us as women in our own lives, struggles, insecurities and gives us hope that if they can do it, we can do it as well. They are mostly stories written by women for women, where these protagonists are the h...

Sweet & Spicy, character reveal


Latin Lovers series- Sweet & Spicy

Hey my friend, I can’t wait to share with you the cover reveal  and of course the whole book!

Today I am thrilled to give you a glimpse of my two main characters. After spending months and months with the characters, creating them, writing about them and getting to know what goes on in their heads you feel so attached to the characters at the end. 

Allow me to share a personal story of a funny thing that happened to me while writing this book. My husband and I were chatting and I was telling him about what was going on at that point in the story and what I wanted to write next. A couple of days later when he asked me how the book was going and how the writing of the scene had gone, I explained a curious thing that happened.... “Oh no that’s not what happened at all! Nikki got really mad at something that DIego said to her and she did not take it well, so she got pissed and did something completely different from what I had planned!” My husband looked at me quizzically not fully understanding or mayb...

Who is Nikki Evans?


Who is Nikki Evans?

I wanted to write about Nikki before I had any idea what the book would be about. I knew who she was perfectly well, her fears and the dialogue going on inside her head. 

As a woman I understood how the “simple and superficial” things can mess up with your self-esteem. 

The visible scar on Nikki’s shoulder due to the fire that killed her parents and burned down her house is a constant reminder of the person she also lost in that place. Herself. Fear and sadness led her to cling to the wrong partner, Ryan...
