New Adult Contemporary Romance
Released: March 14, 2015

She went looking for a hero. She got tangled up in Blue…
Keegan needs a hero, even if she doesn't know it yet. She's a straight-A student with a high-profile job on campus. She's got a lot to prove. But someone's out to get her. Someone's got her running scared. And she runs right into the arms of a red-hot boy named Blue.
Deep down, Blue is still the brave soldier who risked his life for others. He's still a hero, even if he no longer believes it. All he wants now is to make music and bury the secret that could destroy his future. Blue tries hard to be a good guy. But he's wrestling with demons he can barely control. And when Keegan moves into his house and very quickly into his heart, his control begins to slip away.
Keegan and Blue can't stay away from each other, can't stop thinking about each other. They have a connection—body, mind and soul—they cannot resist. But it will cost them dearly. Secrets have a way of exploding into the light, and sometimes heroes can be heartbreakers. Is Blue the love of Keegan's life, her knight in shining armor? Or will he turn out to be an agonizing mistake?
AUTHOR’S NOTE: TANGLED UP IN BLUE ends with a cliffhanger. SHELTER FROM THE STORM (Book #2) concludes the story.

TANGLED UP IN BLUE is Book One in the New Adult series, Ikana College. The series is set in an Oklahoma college town and revolves around a group of students from wildly different backgrounds who find themselves living together in a ramshackle party house known as the Canadian Embassy. Lots of love, lust and drama ensues, accompanied by some damn good music. Along the way, they have to wrestle with the real-life consequences of not only their own actions, but also those of the imperfect adults around them. Book Two, Shelter from the Storm, continues (and concludes) the love story of Keegan and Blue.
