Your past only defines your future if you let it.
Ivy Summers is used to hiding her emotions, flaws, and almost all of her grim past. The past that no matter how much she tries, is bonded to her forever. Life has not been kind to her, and waiting for a better future has brought her to the breaking point.
It's when she meets Dr. Jacade Jordan, the new plastic surgeon with a bad boy attitude, that her entire universe spins in a direction she never knew existed. The force she feels towards him is undeniable.
No man has ever made her feel the way Jacade makes her feel, and no matter how hard she tries, she will not be able to stay away from him. The sparks he ignites inside her prove that she will never be the same, regardless of the numerous dark secrets that lie between them.
So, if logic tells us that our past controls our future, and our past is filled with heartbreak, is it possible to change your future? As Ivy and Jacade find out, your past is only in control of your future if you let it.

I currently live in the Chicagoland area with my family and friends. I have been influenced by such greats as Danielle Steele and A.N. Roquelaure, which lead me towards the romantic genre. My first book Revival, Book One of the Return To Us trilogy, centers around two healthcare professionals with dark pasts, but hope for brighter futures. I feel the success of Revival is due to my own experiences working in healthcare that are weaved throughout the story. These first hand experiences along with imagination allowed me to craft a truly memorable narrative.
Writing has always been in my blood; in fifth grade and high school, I won national poetry contests. I grew up seeing my mother fall in love with romance stories, I knew I had to get my own story out. Although I hold degrees that are unrelated to writing, it is an undeniable part of my personality and one that emerges with Revival, my debut in the world of fiction. With compelling characters, sophisticated plot lines, and touching dialogue, Revival sets the stage for a complex yet relatable play that winds its way throughout the Return To Us trilogy.
When I am not writing, I enjoy volunteering, gardening, and spending time with my family. I attribute all of my success to my parents, friends, and family, who have supported me throughout my career.
