Romance That's Fun, Flirty & Fierce

One night is all it takes.

meet lucas santos

Lucas Santos, mayor of the small coastal town of Wayward, Georgia, believes if something doesn’t belong to you, its worth can be more accurately assessed without any bothersome emotional attachments. A financial theory he’s pragmatically applied to relationships.

Thing is, Lucas wants Birdie Wellborn with the heat of a thousand suns, despite himself.

Because Birdie Wellborn was never that girl. She wasn’t the homecoming queen or the tenacious student class president. She was the girl who escaped her hometown by the skin of her teeth, checking the rearview mirror for flashing red lights.

Conversely, Lucas Santos had always been that guy. The one the girls wanted to date and the other guys wanted to be like. When they were in high school, Birdie avoided him like the plague, unless of course, it was to push his buttons.

One night will change the trajectory of their lives, tearing them apart, only to bring them back to together years later. Unfortunately for Birdie, it’s in the coastal town of Wayward, where the locals have short tempers, protective instincts for their beloved mayor, and very long memories.

About Lēigh

Ex-Corporate Executive who dreamed of writing the types of books my girlfriends wanted to read. 

That's me in a nutshell.

But, let's expound on that for the sake of website protocol.

Raised on a midwestern dairy farm in Indiana, not far from where I attended college, I soon found myself working and thriving in corporate America and traveling the world.

Along the way I became a mother of five (gave birth to two but gladly claim them all).

I am highly opinionated, curse like a sailor, but love with all my heart. Which leads me to my muse and husband, and with whom I'm having a torrid affair. He is the bomb, and why I believe in the magic of romance.

Living Wilder

There’s a fine line between genius and insanity. Add in an irreverent math prodigy with deadly combat skills and an upbringing devoid of normal life experiences, and that line’s going to get more than blurred, it’s going to get obliterated.

Meet Charlotte/cara

Charlotte enjoys music. She is considered a prodigy pianist and virtuoso. Charlotte is world renowned and has sold out concert halls all over the world, rubbing elbows with the rich and famous.

Problem is, she's no longer Charlotte, she's now Cara and hiding in the remote town of Wilder, Texas.
And instead of being wildly famous, playing for monarchs and celebrities and taking a bow to huge audiences, she's now  a wildly unpopular band nerd. 

While her older sisters are saving orphaned children and fighting drug cartel bosses, she's largely ignored. But she's about to find out just how much her sisters have sacrificed for her, and how ill-prepared she is when getting a taste of what they suffered.
