Radish or Amazon Titles


Why are all the titles different on Radish?

Well, each platform uses different search engines. The different titles are to make it easier to find on that platform!

Here's a list of the changed titles so you can find them on Radish (or on Amazon!)

I never thought I'd end up a submissive. . .

I never thought I'd fall for an older man. . .

I never thought I'd lose my virginity to him. . .

I never thought I'd be the girl that sleeps with her professor. . .

I never thought I'd have to sneak around, keep our relationship a secret so that he wouldn't lose his job. . .

But most of all, I never thought I'd give him the greatest gift of all. . .

A baby.

This is a serial novel (sold chapter by chapter) available on Kindle Vella and Radish. It is a slow-burn professor/student romance that gets VERY spicy.

Single Dad’s Surrogate

Posted on
Single Dad's Surrogate is now available!

A month ago, Radish invited me to their application. I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to sell books, so I decided to give it a try. I'm having a blast with their read-by-the-chapter model. It's a slightly different style of writing (each chapter is under 4k words and needs to end on a cliffhanger to entice readers to buy the next chapter!).

I wrote “Single Dad's Surrogate” under a different pen name, but it fits so well under the Radish design that I wanted to bring it back to Krista.

So, I did!

The book is now published on Radish, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Apple.


I hope you enjoy reading about a former surrogate mother turned nanny turned love interest!

I have joined the Radish platform! (And will have NEW books on there!)

A few weeks ago, Radish came to me and wanted to put “The Billionaire Baby Arrangement” up on their platform. It's retitled as “The Billionaire CEO's Baby” on their platform. (Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is important!)

I am loving the response from readers there, so I'm putting up a bunch of books on their site.

There's even a couple of new books coming!

What is Radish?

Happy Radish Dance!

You download the app and then read books chapter by chapter! Many chapters are free or will be free after a short wait time. If you don't want to wait, you can purchase coins and buy that chapter now!

(Click here to go to Radish!)

What does this mean for readers?

Both the Stepbrother novels (Stepbrother's Gift and Stepbrother Hero) are already up on Radish! Since Amazon doesn't like “stepbrother” books, I wasn't able to keep them there. They are available on Radish, though!

In the next few weeks, I'll be publishing two NEW novels on Radish! I wrote them under a different pen name, but they fit the Radish model so nicely that I want to share them there as Krista instead! I will also be publishing them on Amazon, Apple, B&N, and Kobo.

What about Kindle Unlimited (KU)?

For now, the Kisses books, the Kinds of Love, and the Billionaire and Brides books are all staying in KU, though you should borrow them now if you want to be able to use your KU subscription to read them.

If you're reading on Radish, the titles may be different.

I'm so excited about being on a new platform and finding new readers! These two billionaire baby books are going to do great on their platform and I'm so excited to get them new readers!

Escape With Me

There is love after 40.

They say life begins after 40, but Cassie ain't feelin' it. Divorced and feeling trapped by her job, she wants to let loose for her friend's tropical beach wedding. She decides to let her hair down and get a little unpredictable. That's when she meets a handsome bartender, Wyatt.

Despite a few grey hairs, Wyatt's the liveliest man that Cassie has ever met. She knows that there's got to be more to his life story than just being a bartender, but this is just supposed to be a vacation fling. And after sunny days spent breaking all the rules on the beach together, Cassie realizes that nobody has ever listened to her the way that Wyatt does.

His carefree life is enviable, his kisses are intoxicating, and she can almost imagine a life with him. But all vacations come to an end. And when Cassie invites him to visit her hometown, Wyatt reveals that he can never go back. Not to her town. Not to America. Not to civilization.

Cassie leaves, confused and heartbroken, wondering just who she got herself involved with. Suddenly, her predictable life gets turned upside down when she sees her picture splashed across the Internet. And when the tabloids come looking for the mature woman who found the lost billionaire, she has no idea what to do…

…until he comes back.

A Hallmark-worthy small town Christmas Romance now available in Kindle Unlimited!

Molly absolutely loves Christmas. Candy canes, egg nog, mistletoe, the works. She can’t get enough of it. And so it’s only natural that she works at the local Christmas store, Christmas Wishes.

But when the Scrooge-like Nicholas comes to town, looking to sell his father’s business out from under him, it looks like Molly’s dream job is disappearing. Worse yet, she’s starting to fall for Nicholas, despite everything telling her not to.

With one last chance to save the store, Molly appeals to the power of Christmas itself, attempting to convert Nicholas to seeing the beauty of the holiday. Can Christmas magic really make Christmas Wishes come true?

Fans of Hallmark Christmas movies will be swept away by Christmas Wishes, a small-town standalone holiday romance with mistletoe and magic. Grab a glass of eggnog, sit by a warm fire, and enjoy!
