New Series Coming 2022


A Billionaire Windy City Match

Luke Ashford is his father’s son. A demanding, uncompromising, billionaire workaholic born and raised to be CEO. It’s all he’s ever wanted, and finally within his reach.

So when Luke lies about who he is and agrees to mentor two third-graders, there’s no good reason other than the enchanting elementary school teacher who’s captured his attention in the blink of an eye.

Penny Pierce is unlike any woman Luke has met before, but she’s searching for a kind, loving, dependable man to grow old with, not the tall, dark, chiseled suit who’s appeared in her classroom, pinning her with midnight eyes and a brooding stare.

When Luke’s father lays down one final ultimatum before he’ll name his only son CEO, Luke is forced to ask Penny out and keep up the charade until he can convince his father their fake relationship is real.

Will Penny discover his lies and ruin his plans or find her perfect match where she least expects it?

Will Luke’s secrets ruin everything, or will he learn his lesson and become the man his father, and Penny, believe he can be?


You’ll love this steamy, modern-day Windy City Match because who can resist an uncompromising billionaire tempted by a sweet and sexy teacher, both of whom aren’t the only ones hiding something.

Hi, there. Ellen here. So glad you found me! I’m a classically trained pastry chef who now spends my days whipping up steamy and satisfying modern day love stories.

When I’m not writing happily ever afters, you'll find me absorbed in a novel, relaxing into śavāsana, or downing a caffè americano. Oh, and belting out the lyrics to Hamilton.

I live in the desert southwest where I still occasionally bake a batch of cookies for my real-life hero and two girls.
