Nixie Rowland is having a bad day. Rushing home to drown her sorrows in ice cream and reality television, she decides to take a shortcut to the subway where things take a turn for the worst. But Nixie’s bad luck doesn’t end there—the white knight who comes to her rescue is none other than the Dark Knight of Wall Street, a cocky Manhattan mogul whose ego barely fits inside his penthouse. To her horror, Nixie discovers the sizzling attraction between them is off the charts, and rising fast. Spending the night in his bed does nothing to lower the heat… And everything to set her heart on fire.
Nash Knight doesn’t have room in his life, or his heart, for anything beyond one-night stands or casual flings. And he certainly doesn’t make a habit of rescuing damsels in distress. Except that this particular damsel slips beneath his armor, the vulnerability she covers with a false show of bravado hitting him somewhere deep. Nixie is everything he never wanted… And exactly what he needs.
With Nixie on the run from a controlling ex, and Nash trying to salvage a business deal at risk because his conquests in the bedroom are overshadowing his wins in the boardroom, there’s one simple solution for them both: a marriage in name only. But when lust becomes love, will their untamed emotions be a deal breaker?
Tara Leigh attended Washington University in St. Louis and Columbia Business School in New York, and worked on Wall Street and Main Street before “retiring” to become a wife and mother. When the people in her head became just as real as the people in her life, she decided to put their stories on paper. Tara currently lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, children and fur-baby, Pixie.

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…
Calida Jokobi doesn’t see it that way. Surviving an abusive relationship with a sadistic, manipulative man changed her. She has spent the last two years carefully constructing her new persona with two goals in mind: to keep the remaining pieces of her heart safe and her deepest secrets buried. One man puts it all at risk.
Malcolm has been a part of Calida’s life for as long as she can remember. A friend. Her first teenage crush. Now he’s asking for something she swore she’d never give again: her heart.
Calida must decide if she should risk the fragile façade she’s created and give Malcolm the chance he’s asking for.
They say love can heal all wounds…
Malcolm Frankel wants to prove to Calida it’s true. She survived a hell most people couldn’t fathom. He’s been by her side fulfilling whatever role she needs him to play. All except the one he wants most. It took nearly losing her to make Malcolm realize he couldn’t keep denying his feelings.
He knows no one goes through an ordeal like that and comes out unscathed, but the closer they get, the more he learns just how deep Calida’s wounds go.
She’s the only woman he’s ever loved, and Malcolm is ready to put his own heart at risk for a chance at mending hers.

The Boy a.k.a Man Child these days (they got their names before the younger two came along), Curly Top, a.k.a Thing 1, and Munchkin a.k.a Thing 2. No they are not twins, but close in age.
We are a family of animal lovers. We have three dogs. Pixie, a Weimaraner, Loki, a Weim/Pit mix, and Thor a German Shepherd. All from rescues because that’s how we roll. We also have a pet turtle named Leo, and The Hubs and kids have a snake (I take no ownership of that).

or will the past consume their future?
Survivor is the second stand-alone novel in the Sweet Home Dixie contemporary romance series.
“Are you sure you don’t have anything better to do?”
He seemed to think about it for half a second. “Nope.” An amused smiled played on his lips. “Eager to get rid of me?”
“No… it’s just…” She looked down at her shoes, suddenly at a loss for words.
He tilted his head. “It’s just, what?”
She shifted her weight uncomfortably as she wrung her hands. Reid watched her, his amusement growing with every second of her silence. She drew in a breath and let the words fly. “All of a sudden it’s like you…” Another deep breath. “You kind of make me nervous.”
“Is that why you’re doing the potty dance?”
Her cheeks warmed and she crossed her arms over her chest, regretting her honesty.
His expression turned darker and he took a step toward her. “Why do I make you nervous, Avery?”
Heat spread down her neck to her chest and all the way to her fingertips. Still, she didn’t step back or look away as he pinned her with his gaze. She swallowed. “You make me… feel things.”
His eyes smoldered with intensity and—hope? “What kinds of things?”
“Real things. Even… dirty things.” Her cheeks warmed further as the words spilled out.
His eyes widened slightly as his breath hitched. He took another step toward her. “So, what’s stopping you?”
“Right now, I’m not entirely sure.” She licked her lips and dropped her gaze to his mouth. Ever since that night in his truck, she’d wondered what it would be like to kiss him, and right now the urge was stronger than ever.
He leaned closer to her, inch by agonizing inch. Though he reached out to touch her cheek, he seemed to think better of it and dropped his hand to his side. He closed his eyes as if searching for strength, his brow creasing.
“You deserve more than I can give you, Avery.” He took two steps back, his expression pained. “You deserve better than someone like me.”
Her heart raced and her senses were on high alert. For some inexplicable reason, Reid made her feel alive, maybe even happy, something she hadn’t experienced in far too long. “But what if you’re exactly what I’m looking for?”
I’m first and foremost a loving (and sometimes nagging) wife and a mom of a beautiful little boy, but when I’m not wrangling my little one, cleaning up messes, or banging my head against the wall, I try to find the time to write and manage my career as an indie author.
Quitting my job and leaving the world of adults was a life-changing decision for our family, and although it came with its own difficulties, I would make the decision again in a heartbeat. Being home with my son was precious, but being the person that I am, I still felt like I needed something more. Writing became the “more” I was looking for and I was pleased to discover that I had at least one book in me. About six months after I set out to write my first book, Mended was completed and I’d discovered a whole new part of myself I didn’t know was there.
For me, writing is a way to escape the everyday stresses of life and it creates a welcome challenge on a daily basis. I hope to make a career out of it, but even if I don’t succeed, I can be grateful that I’ve pushed myself to achieve my dream.
The second book in my Sweet Home Dixie series is called Survivor. It’s about a woman named Avery and her struggle to find her way in the world again after experiencing a tragic loss. Authentic characters, real emotions, heartwarming love, and the enticing spark of romance is all a part of this moving story. Survivor is now available on Amazon!
I’m currently working on the third book in my Sweet Home Dixie Series, and I hope to release it sometime next year, though that all depends on how crazy motherhood gets! My Sweet Home Dixie series is made up of standalone contemporary romance novels set in a small, charming town in southern Alabama.
While all of my books have everything a romance novel should—swoon-worthy men, heart pattering attraction, and just the right amount of sizzle—they go beyond the borders of a typical romance. Deep-rooted emotions, realistic and relatable characters full of flaws and personal struggles, and real issues that work against the characters as they try to find their happy endings all play vitals parts in my stories.
I want to show readers that it’s okay not to be perfect and that everyone falls down at some point in their lives. But with love and personal reflection, we can become far better people than we ever thought possible and can often achieve the unimaginable. I hope you enjoy reading!
