BLURB

What if death doesn’t do you part?

They say be careful what you wish for. But on December 5th, Alex Fox makes a wish in the midst of a devastating tragedy. Little did he know, that wish would come true.

Six years after that fateful day, a little girl wanders into Alex’s studio. With her quirky personality, endless questions, and adorable smile, Penny Rose becomes an enchanting, yet bittersweet, distraction.

Penny Rose was an odd girl—at least, that’s what her parents said. Penny herself didn’t feel particularly odd; she simply felt misplaced. As if somehow, in some way, she was living in the wrong place. In the wrong life.

As the years pass, Alex and Penny develop a friendship. But it becomes harder and harder for them to ignore their undeniable chemistry, no matter how forbidden it is.

Alex believed he’d never find love again, let alone fall for a girl half his age. But Penny is everything he could ever want or need. Not only is she caring, witty, and beautiful, but she accepts the past that haunts him.

Penny couldn’t be happier. She’s been head over heels for sexy, brooding artist Alex Fox since she was six years old. But when her childhood dreams start resurfacing again—dreams of a life with Alex way before they ever met—she starts to think they’re not dreams at all.

They’re memories.

Penny’s revelation to Alex threatens to tear them apart, making them question the impossible and unbelievable.

Can love truly transcend time and death, giving them a second chance at their happily ever after? Or is Penny battling a broken mind that has led her down a path of heartbreaking delusion?

Carter King– first and only love of my life – a man who became my happy place after my mom’s death. It didn’t matter that he was eleven years older than me or that he was groomed to be my dad’s boss, I loved him with every bit of my teenage heart.

But mine was an unrequited love, at least until now.

I’m returning home after four years of college, hoping I’ve finally purged Carter out of my system.
But he’s no longer the carefree man I remember. Instead, he's a brooding CEO, wrapped in Tom ford sophistication and a touch of vulnerability.

Did I say, I wasn't ready for this changed version of him?

All my attempts to stay away fall apart and it takes no time for the old friendship to rekindle, evolving into every bit of my teenage fantasies.
Carter kisses me in front of hundreds of his business associates, and promises me the all consuming love, I’d dreamt of since I was a little girl.

But despite the familiar, there’s so much unspoken between us. He needs to know what made me flee four years ago. Will my dreams shatter once more in the face of truth?

A Forever Love is a heart-felt, swoon-filled, friends to lovers, billionaire romance set in a small town.

AUTHOR BIO

In those early morning hours when I’m alone, my imaginations run wild and I pen down the life of people living in my head. All my life, I have lived in small towns in different parts of the world. The friendships, the camaraderie that people share around me inspired me to create Cherrywood and St. Peppers, the two towns where all my stories take place. 

I write about beautiful coincidences, finding love in unexpected places and times, and fighting hard to get that happily ever after. 

I reject to read, see, write anything that does not promise a HEA. 
My characters are sexy yet shy, strong yet reserved… 

I am married to a man whom I fell in love at an age of 15, proposed him at an age of 23 and married at an age of 30. He has no clue what I write or do when he is snoring quietly in the next room.

It’s in Shane’s arms that I feel the safest. But trusting him means that I’m putting everything in my life at risk.

Release Date: November 16, 2023

My mangled heart beats for her, but hers beats for him… And maybe me.

I’ve never been one for norms. I fight and bake for a living.
Why should I expect my sex-life to be any different?
And I don’t mean love-life. I don’t do love.
I’ve been there. Done that. My heart is mangled for a reason.
My best friend, Walker, and I like to share… As in together.
I'm a transactional, one-time only kinda guy.

Then we met her.

She set off a seismic tremor that threatened to crumble the wall around my heart.
She haunts my thoughts, sinking under my skin like a demon.
Unrelenting.
Remorseless.
I hate how easily thoughts of her sway my body and mind.
It’s a constant battle of wills between what I want and what I can have.

She’s not meant for me. I’m not her forever, regardless of Walker or my treacherous heart trying to convince me otherwise.

I’m her right now—that’s all I can ever be.

D.M. Davis' MUSTANG is an angsty, heart clenching, why-choose, contemporary sports romance that has Jess fighting his desires, Walker praying he won’t be forgotten, and Berklyn willing to lose them both because she won’t choose one over the other.

Buy now to get lost in this steamy why-chose romance with all the feels.

MUSTANG is Book Five and the last in the Black Ops MMA series.

Rule #1: Don’t fall in love with the groom

Stalker exes. Momzillas. Drunk uncles. Hurricanes. Jealous siblings. Paparazzi.

You name it, Kari Whitevelt has seen it all.

And that’s why brides and grooms hire her.

Because she makes it all go away.

Wedding Protectors, Inc., is here to make sure that special day stays special.

Whatever it takes.

No matter what.

But when her newest client turns out to be her own long-lost high school sweetheart, rising tech star billionaire Caleb Mikelmas, suddenly Kari’s not sure whether she’s protecting the wedding couple —

Or her own heart.

Tech billionaire Caleb never thought he had a chance, much less a second chance with his first love and high school sweetheart, Kari. When a case of mistaken identity turns their reunion into one big misunderstanding, unraveling his feelings about the one who got away while supporting his brother’s nuptials means facing old demons.

And kissing Kari.

He likes kissing Kari far more than that whole demon thing.

But if kisses were enough, Kari would already be his wife.

Maybe it’s time to revisit the past and right some wrongs.

One vow at a time.

Welcome to the Whatever It Takes series:

Every bride needs something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue -

But you know what brides don't need?

Complications.

Welcome to Wedding Protectors, Inc. Have a spritzer or a latte or some lovely Zen tea and sink into a comfortable chair in our sunlit offices as we listen to your wedding problem – and form the perfect solution to every possible contingency.

We plan for everything.

Except our own love lives.

But that's not your problem. ;)

EXCERPT

Carolina was introducing him to his former fiancée.
Fine. Near fiancée. It had been a promise ring, not an engagement diamond, but still.
The run he'd just finished was apparently unnecessary from a cardio standpoint, since his heart was now racing, crashing into his ribs as if it were fleeing a crime scene. Not that he was the bad guy. But still.
Kari. No way.
It was his Kari. And okay, maybe she was never formally his fiancée, but until college and distance broke them up, they always planned on it. He’d given her a promise ring in high school, so that was close enough.
When Carolina had mentioned she was meeting two wedding professionals named Katie and Carrie, he'd heard it as the more familiar spelling. She'd never spelled it out, and she hadn't bothered to tell him Kari's last name.
“Caleb, have you swallowed your tongue along with your manners? Shake the poor woman's hand, for goodness sake!” Carolina crooned, giving him side-eye while managing a puzzled smile at Kari as the two stood awkwardly in front of each other, gaping.
Kari had changed in some ways, for sure, but it was her, alright. Her brown hair was a darker shade but still thick and shiny, framed in soft layers around her face, brushing the edges of straight, strong shoulders. He recognized those whiskey brown eyes, deceptively sleepy unless you knew her, knew that behind them, her brain was working constantly at warp speed.
She was taller now–or anyway, she didn’t wear four-inch heels back then–so instead of having to bend to kiss her lips, he could just dip his head.
If he wanted to kiss her.
If wanting to kiss her wasn’t the only thing he could think about.
