Held captive in a room built just for her, Ava Kelley crouches in the dark corner, waiting for the mad man who has spent years following her every move. She never knew he was patiently waiting for his opportunity to make her his forever. If it were not for the memories of Sean's warm smile to hold onto through her captors brutal attacks, she might never have had the strength to escape. Sean, the handsome man that rescued her from a wild celebrity-seeking mob never leaves her thoughts. Her heart beating louder than the breaths she tries to silence, she watches as the blackened room lights up, and he appears in her sights. One swing and she runs from her captor. Eager to find a life that he will not be able to find her in Ava moves to a new city and starts her own architecture firm and a new simpler life.
After years of concentrating only on her work, her trivial routines and keeping her distance from admiring men, Ava was unprepared for the whirlwind that sends Sean forcefully back into her life.

Despite her meddling he still cannot find someone to erase the memories of her. It has been years since that chance meeting in New York, it was but only a few minutes but he has held onto the memories of her blue eyes ever since. His love for her grips him like no other and if not for his meddling mother, Sean would have never found Ava again.
Finding Ava is only the beginning; keeping her safely hidden from the mad man that is fixated on possessing her is the ongoing struggle. How do you keep someone you love hidden, when the lenses of hundreds of cameras follow your every move? It is a maddening effort but with the help of a mysterious old man, Sean receives the words of advice that may help save her life.

The Devil’s Eyes:
Nicholas Jayzon has broken through the chains of his destitute past by stealing, swindling and charming his way to owning his city. In the city where most everyone owes him a favor, Nick’s power is growing. The police can’t touch him and his enemies are becoming powerless to take him down. He is intelligent, cunning and above all … alluring. No woman can resist him. But, one woman is determined to bring him down and her reasons are personal. Kayla Donovan has spent years preparing for the time she faces him again and plans on denying Nick as much of her as she can. She knows him; she knows what gets his attention and what he can’t resist. Kayla is the only one that can possibly look into his devilish eyes and not be besieged by them or controlled by a single whisper of his desire. If she is able to manage her fears, then there is no reason for her not to succeed, and if she can’t … well, she has nothing to lose. She has no one left to care about her or to miss her if she fails in her mission. She has no one, not since her beloved sister fell for Nick, became controlled by him, and eventually died because of him.
Driven by hate, Kayla is determined to find a way into Nick’s favor, find a way to make him trust her so she can find the heart of the devil and tear it apart before he captures hers.
The Devil’s Eyes is a Dark, Intense, Romance novel. Not your typical story of two perfect people coming together after overcoming a life challenge. No, Nick and Kayla are two imperfect people, trying to overcome the brutal realities of their worlds and finding life as criminals comes naturally to them both.
The Devil's Son:
A stand alone book that follows Nicholas Jayzon’s life as a teenager, from dealing with his father, to overcoming his mother and finding a way to survive on his own. His life takes dramatic turns but he manages to find a life that suits him and a love that will be only
I manage to free my hands and run down the dock with Dawson chasing after me. I notice a boat off in the distance and decide that’s my only hope at this point. Jumping into the ice-cold water I swim as fast as I can. Dawson jumps in after me, still weak from his taser I cannot outswim him. Dawson takes hold of me and continuously pushes me under water while I try to fight him. “Wayne! Wayne, get your ass down here and help me!” He yells as the other man comes running down the path. “Finally!” As I choke on the water in my lungs he pulls me out and throws me onto the dock. “What the fuck? How….? Put your gun down or I will kill her right now!” Dawson yells as I try to crawl away from him. He grabs hold of the back of my head and tries to pull me up but drops me onto the hard surface of the dock as he stumbles backwards. My head spins, my heart pounds, and I begin to lose focus as the yelling increases around me. “I’m warning you! Stay back!” Dawson grabs hold of me again, but suddenly I hear a gun go off and Dawson releases his grip on me, screaming. When another shot rings out, Dawson falls to his knees next to me. “Please! Please! I had no choice. You have to understand! Joseph would have killed me. He …”
“Fuck you!” I hear someone growl. Another shot rings out and Dawson falls backwards off the dock, gurgling his last breaths as he sinks into the water.
Holding up my head, I sit up trying to focus as the dark figure comes near me, “you got here quick. You must have driven like a madman.” I said as I watch him walk towards me. I swallow hard as he slowly comes into the moonlight, “Nick?”
My breath is haggard, my heart is beating rapidly but still … I reach out to him, hoping that I am seeing him and not hallucinating. Leaning down to me he takes my hand and holds me close to his warm chest. “Am I dreaming?” I ask him.
“You’re safe now, Princess.” He says kissing my forehead. “I have to go, Ryan will be here soon.” He safely positions me and I have to fight more than my body as exhaustion takes over. I close my eyes once, only once … and he’s gone. Like a dream, like the perfect dream come true.
!” My voice scorches my throat, my ears ring and there is nothing, no one but me and a sweat-soaked bed.
It had to be him, it had to be.
Ryan walks in with some water, looking at me as if I am about to break any second.
Oh why did I have to pass out?
If I could have only stayed focused, I could have made him stay.
Ryan pushes my hair from my face and kisses my forehead gently. “It’s okay Kayla, you’re safe and everything is going to be okay, now. Estrella should have known better than to mess with you.
You could have at least waited for me, I would have liked to kick Dawson’s ass too.”
“No, Ryan … it was Nick.” Ryan’s expression tells me everything he is thinking. Taking hold of his shirt, “he is alive! I swear Ryan it was him … it was Nick.
I know it
Ryan leans me back into bed with a subtle sigh, “okay, it was Nick. I’m sure he will always be watching over you.” I huff forcing my face into the pillow. “What do you want me to say Kayla? Nick is not here, he
in that plane crash. He is not coming back. I don’t know what it is going to take before you get that through your thick skull!”
Pushing back I seethe my insistence, “he is alive! And I am going to prove it!”
I hate these parties. I know I don’t belong, despite the expensive gown and jewels. I have nowhere near the background of most of these people. It never bothered me when I would come to these with Nick. No matter the people around us, I always felt like I belonged with him and that’s all that mattered to me. Everyone else was only a background to my happiness. Now the background is suddenly forced into my view and I can’t help feeling lost and alone. I miss him more and more every day, without even realizing I made Nick my life. Somehow I am supposed to put the pieces back together without him and live a life without the only person that I have ever loved.
I still love.
“Mrs. Jayzon, you look lovely as always.” Estrella approaches me with his gleaming smile and his hand stretched out to take mine as he leans down to kiss it gently.
Sighing, I graciously give him a weak smile, “Thank you, and you look … well old and tired as always.” Estrella laughs and for some reason, I follow.
I must have drunk too much.
“It’s good to see you laugh, your sadness is breaking my heart.” Estrella expresses with a sickening passion.
“Then perhaps you shouldn’t have killed my husband.” I say with a hardened glare. “Why did you do it? You two had such a great relationship, why did you risk everything? What did you expect to gain? You don’t have Nick’s connections and you certainly don’t have his skills at convincing people to believe in you. So why did you betray him?” Estrella steps back with a curious expression and for a brief moment I see something that I did not expect -
A coward had my husband killed?
I don’t think so.
“I am sorry for your loss but maybe you and I can repair our relationship and come to an agreement?” Estrella says focusing his eyes on everyone else in the room.
