“I vowed nothing would keep us apart…”
Fiona Reynolds is my other half.
It’s been that way from the day I was born.
I’ve dedicated my life to keep my promise.
Fate just laughs in our face.
She’s always out of reach, this time for good.
I’ll do anything to prove she’s my destiny –
if only she’d trust me one more time.

“After what I’ve done, how can I deserve him?”
Zane Rocks is my everything.
There’s no one I love or trust more than him.
It wasn’t his fault when he left me.
I always knew he’d find his way back.
Fear overwhelmed me, and I broke his heart.
Will the most celebrated musician on the planet,
really give me another chance?

When a rash decision changes their lives forever, hope for their future is all but shattered.
Stakes are high.

But Zane’s determined to prove a love this pure is TIMELESS.


A steamy, childhood-friends-to-lovers romance between a sexy billionaire rockstar and his plus-size soulmate

“Restraint is not my strong suit.”

I’m finally reunited with the woman I’ve loved since birth.
Why do I feel so untethered?
Fiona’s living her dream and I’m doing my best to support her.
But, with so many dark secrets revealed, my very foundation is rocked to the core.
Will we ever outrun our past to have the life we deserve?

“My lifelong dream blew up in spectacular fashion”

Zane and I overcame many obstacles to achieve our destiny.
We’re best friends and soulmates—with a love life other couples only dream of.
Anxiety and self-doubt still threaten my confidence.
When neither of us have reconciled our past,
Can we find the courage to embrace our future?

Happily ever after can mean so many things.
Life happens.
Faith is tested.

Will Zane and Fiona overcome decades of deception?
Is true love really TIMELESS?

TIMELESS ENCORE is Book 8 in the Less Than Zero Rockstar Romance Series, and is the sequel to TIMELESS

It is strongly recommended you read Books 1-4 before reading any of the “ENCORE” sequels, otherwise you’ll be spoiled!


We get into the car. I turn in my seat toward him before he turns on the engine. ” I’m asking because you’ve been a little obsessed with fucking me in public lately.” I think about the Mission construction site, where we’ve done it on sawhorses, stacks of wood, up against walls, the list goes on and on. Then there’s the beach in Maui. In Ty and Zoey’s bathroom. Backstage at the Grammys. In the locker room at the Seahawks game when Zane raised the 12th-man flag.

Oh, I’m into it. Hell, I initiate it half the time.

For me, there’s never been anyone but Zane. If he wants to bang me in a parking lot, I’m all in. We’ve always been that annoying couple who gets each other off, whenever—and wherever—the mood strikes.

Admittedly, lately I’ve been more self-conscious about my weight than normal. I’m heavier now than I’ve ever been. Stress eating for months will do that to you. Now that I’m free of the constant worry of losing Mia, I’m struggling with adopting better habits.

A vicious cycle, but I’m nervous that one of our public romps will be caught on camera. I’d be humiliated.

Especially because…

I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. I loved my dress, my shoes, my makeup—I thought I looked hot. So did Zane. Let’s just say a vocal contingent of the LTZ fandom disagreed. I want to ignore them, but the band’s blogs and socials were brutal.

Zane’s hot but who’s the fat chick?

LOL who knew ZR wuz a Fatty chaser?

She’s pretty for a plus-sized girl.

Here’s what I’d say to her- stop eating burgers.

He settled for that?

On and on.

I can’t believe the comments bother me so much. Before I had Mia, I was genuinely sassy and strong-willed. Super comfortable and secure with myself—and with Zane. I never worried about how much I weighed. Or how I looked. Or what anyone thought. I knew Zane loved me unconditionally so I didn’t care what anyone thought.

It’s infuriating that I’m letting people I don’t know make me feel less-than.

But I do. Feel less than, that is.

More and more each day, unfortunately.

I might project a certain don’t-fuck-with-me attitude, but most days there’s a constant inner nagging voice that spurs anxiety beyond anything I’ve ever known.

Am I enough?

Zane’s at the top of his game. He’s seen and experienced the world. Earned the right to take a year off. He’s had a ton of sexual experience outside of our relationship.

I mean, what do I have to offer, really? I’m not bringing anything new or exciting to him, I’m the same old Fee. Mia’s the best thing about me, truth be told.
