Russian Tattoos Trilogy


So excited the trilogy is complete! After working on the Russian Tattoos Trilogy for four years, I am thrilled to unleash the last book in the series. People often ask me, "What is the best part about being an author."

For me, the best part of writing is bringing fictional characters to life, creating worlds, and experiencing the growth of the characters as their story unfolds. When I sit down to write, I have no idea what the characters are going to do or where they are going to take me.

I plot out the story before I begin, but how Carter, Vladimir, Boris, and all the characters move from one scene to the next and what they do along the way is a mystery that unfolds at the keyboard. The main characters have been through so much together, and I am proud of how much they have grown since Obsession.

I want to send all my readers and fans a huge shout-out, virtual high-fives, and fist bumps. Your support means the world to me. I am beyond grateful for all the words of encouragement, reviews, social media posts, and recommendations from our awesome book community. Being an author is the best job in the world, and I am blessed to be able to do what I love. Spasibo!


Ready to meet Carter & the Russians?


Obsession #1

A billionaire Russian cybercriminal becomes obsessed with a small town American woman. Vladimir has been stalking Carter from Russia for years and moves to Ohio just to meet her. He works his way into her life, and Carter is drawn to the sexy and mysterious businessman with a delicious Russian accent.

Vladimir is a dangerous man who earned every tattoo inked on his skin. He's a bad guy in some respects, but he's not all bad.

When Carter falls for his charms and gets in too deep with the Russian mafia, she must fight for her freedom before the attraction turns fatal.

Prisoner #2

American tennis player Carter Cook is being held prisoner by the Russian mafia...

Carter is the obsession of mob boss Vladimir Ivanov, a man she once loved. Now a mafia war has erupted on his home turf, and Vladimir’s enemies have put a bounty on her head to force him to surrender.

If she is captured, his rivals will deliver a deadly ultimatum—his life in exchange for hers. The price for Carter’s freedom is Vladimir’s blood. Vladimir vows to get her home and never interfere in her life again. Giving up the woman he loves is the only way to protect her from the bad guys—including himself.

Criminal #3

Russian mob boss Vladimir Ivanov has many enemies—one of them just kidnapped his wife. A mafia war has erupted in London, and Vladimir’s enemies know his one weakness is his deep passion for his new bride, Carter Ivanov. When rival mob boss Maksim Ovechkin kidnaps her, Vladimir is willing to pay the ransom with his own blood. But Maksim’s plans go deeper than that. Vladimir’s blood may not be enough. Maksim wants Carter for himself.
