Born into wealth and privilege, Colin Sinclair was raised on the knowledge that money could buy anything and everyone had a price. Trouble was no trouble at all, not when the money was there to sweep it under the rug. But those lessons, learned at the knee of his father, were going to be challenged in a way that would change Colin forever.
In middle class suburbia, Arnaud Dechene learned the value of hard work, focus, and dedication to a dream. He was well on his way to achieving it, the role of Premier, when he catches Colin’s eye. Rich snobs didn’t usually do it for him, but there was something about Colin that made him impossible to resist.
Despite being opposites in every way, falling into a relationship was surprisingly—and deceptively—easy, but Arnaud never lost sight of his dream and Colin had trouble accepting that he was second place to anything. When a stupid argument leads to a reckless act, the repercussions leave Arnaud fighting for his life and Colin paying with his own.
With a little meddling from an aging schemer and intentions that are more well-meaning than realistic, their paths will cross again. However, Colin and Arnaud aren’t the same men who loved with abandon. They are older and wiser, with a history that might be too big to overcome.
Fans of the series know revenge is a double-edged sword, forgiveness doesn’t always come easy, and forgetting is damn near impossible. But love…well, that may just conquer all.
Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I’d begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: To be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it’s a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With three series in the works and counting, it’s been amazing to have made this dream my reality.
I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. I’m a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you’ll find throughout my books.

Yet another fantastic addition to the Sizzling Miami series. Just when I think I’ve read the best novel within the best series, it just keeps getting better and better! Jessie G has an absolute hit with the series as a whole, but each individual novel within the series takes us, the reader, to new heights. In this instance, we are emotionally undone from Colin’s self flagellation.
Colin and Arnaud met young and fell hard. Totally opposite in dreams, desires, family, social class, and upbringing. They were an odd pairing but scoffed in the face of anyone who didn’t see their absolute love for each other.
Arnaud was working hard to be the best dancer he could be. His dream of traveling with a prestigious company one day was his driving force. Colin was content being with Arnaud, supporting him and learning business, as his upper crust father demanded of him. Going to school, working himself every minute of everyday to eventually be able to tend to Arnaud’s every need, and show his support was Colin’s main goal. Wealth allotted Colin a lot of opportunities and he was going to set himself in to the right position so he could spend his time with Arnaud.
That’s until everything goes completely wrong and their lives are forever changed. Ripped apart from each other and, as far as Colin is concerned, never to cross paths again.
Colin has such guilt and remorse over the event from years prior. He cannot see past what happened and move forward. He feels it is his life’s work to be miserable. To never feel joy. To never be loved. To never feel one ounce of happiness. He should always live with the knowledge and guilt of that one life changing event. He should always be miserable and just existing. This is Colin’s mindset. How can anyone reach through that wall of burden and make a good man see he has paid the price and deserves more?
Arnaud is determined to be in Colin’s life again and be the one, with the help of Colin’s friends, to make him see that he is worthy of so much more. Together they can be what they once were and maybe even better.
This is quite the emotional journey. Colin is so sweet and gentle. He broke my heart repeatedly. Arnaud was always a bright spot. Well adjusted and driven, he knew what he wanted, Colin, and wasn’t about to give up on getting him back.
The support system from Saul, Bull, Red, Chris, and Owen were perfection. These guys have been through a lot. They’ve made their own family through adversity and hardship using pure strength of will and character. It’s always joyous seeing the guys band together for each other. It’s also a treat to revisit favorite couples from past novels in the series.
His Premier. Go read it!
