SOFT DEADLINES, my serialized paranormal romance is available to read on Kindle Vella.

About the story: Naomi is a woman waking up to realize life is passing her by. Duncan is a six foot tall blue incubus trying to get some rest. He finds it with Naomi, and possibly something more. If only they can get his ex to leave them alone. It’s hard to hide from a jealous succubus. Find it on Kindle Vella here.
