As You Desire Is Now Available!!

As You Desire marks my tenth published work! I can't explain the joy of knowing my stories are reaching readers all over the world!


As You Desire is the second book in my Djinn Brotherhood series and although Vander from As You Wish will always remain one of my favorite characters to write, I had a blast telling Rafi and Lona's story. Their love affair is what I'd call a slow burn, but man, oh man is it HOT!

Enjoy an exclusive sneak peek from the first chapter below...

Chapter One

Rafi bit back a curse as he waited for his current master, Lacey, to make her final wish. He heard her stunned gasp from her bedroom and stifled a yawn as she rushed back into the living room dressed in a denim mini-skirt and a tight pink T-shirt that clung to her breasts.

She swivelled in the mirror, admiring her new slim, stacked body. “Look at me! I haven’t had this skirt on since…well, never. I can’t believe it—I’m freaking hawt now!”
Rafi cringed as she let out another squeal of delight.

“Omigoodness…look at my butt. Do you see it?”

He didn’t bother responding as Lacey continued to gush over her new curves.

“You still have one wish left to use.”

Lacey giggled with excitement, twirling like a ballerina in front of the mirror.

“It’s so hard to decide. I still can’t believe this happened to me!”

These were the moments he hated being a Djinn. He was so tired of fulfilling empty, mundane, utterly typical wishes.

C’mon, lady, I don’t have all day.

He blew out a breath, frustrated with everything. It would be so easy to help her make a decision. All he’d have to do was give her a gentle mental push and use the unique ability he’d been born with to project his thought into Lacey’s mind.

Too bad it was strictly forbidden behaviour for any Djinn capable of the gift within the Brotherhood.

Wishes were to be made freely. The reality was he actually did have all day, all month…hell, all year if that was how long Lacey decided to take to utter her last request.

Lacey glanced away from her reflection to cast a quick look at him through the mirror. “What’s the matter, gorgeous? Am I taking too long for you?”

The smile he gave her spiked the intensity of the headache thumping against his skull.

“Time is of no consequence for me.”

Rafi crossed his arms, wishing Lacey lived in the tropics instead of this godforsaken frozen farmhouse located in the middle of nowhere.

“Maybe that’s it…I could wish to live forever, like you.”

“Trust me—living forever isn’t as great as it sounds.”

A stab of pain hit his heart and Rafi steeled himself as it travelled down the length of his body.

How long had it been since he’d allowed himself to feel that heartache?

He blinked, trying to erase images of smiling grey eyes, silky chestnut hair and—

“I can come to you later. Give you some time to make your final decision.”

Lacey turned her face away from the mirror and glanced at the stacks of cash covering her coffee table before looking at him.

“Wait. I know what I want.”

Rafi nodded his head, ready to deliver and split. He couldn’t wait to get home after a week in the icy tundra.

“You’ve been very good to me, Rafi.” Lacey walked over to him, running her eyes over his body.

Oh, hell, here we go.

“That’s my job as your Djinn.”

Lacey lifted her gaze from his chest to meet his eyes. “You’re a dream come true, and I’m not just talking about the wishes.”

“I’m glad you’re satisfied.”

Wrong choice of words.

He could practically feel the sexual hunger emanating from Lacey. She had no doubt been starved of male attention, her locale and extra body weight hindering her dating activities big time.

“I’d like to be.” Lacey gave him a hesitant smile as she smoothed her hands down her denim skirt.

“Excuse me?”

Perhaps if he played clueless she’d lose her nerve.

Lacey reached up and touched his shoulder.

“I’d like to be satisfied by you.”

She blushed, obviously unaccustomed to making brazen demands.

If he wasn’t in such a foul mood he might’ve acted on her bashful come-on.

“Is that your final wish?”

“Could it be?”

“No.”

Not exactly the truth, but she wasn’t privy to the by-laws of the Djinn Brotherhood.

  4. You left me hanging. I want to know what Rafi does. Is Lacey's last wish finally granted? Does she change her last wish? What happens?
