Read what makes you happy!

Posted on

Recently, a TikTok on BookTok went viral about reading the “Classics”

My books are not classics. I know this. My books aren't meant to stand up in a literary classroom, but their purpose is to bring joy and light into people's lives. I don't want my books to be analyzed and directed. I want them to be read and enjoyed for what they are- spicy feel good romance novels.

As such, here are some t-shirts that I will be purchasing because the classics aren't what make me happy.

Fall Into Love

College student Ada has found the one thing that really revs her engine: Coffee. And she's found the perfect coffee shop in Perk Me Up. She likes the baristas, the other customers, and she especially likes their lattes. She likes it so much, she decides to apply for a job.

But that's when the perfect brew turns cold. The owner of the place, Nate, is a real pain in the coffeepot. He's a bit older than Ada, a bit wiser, but a whole lot grumpier. But on top of those hunched, overworked shoulders is a big brain with big dreams. His secrets threaten to take the whole café down with him if he doesn't get help. But all that is just a façade to disguise a failing business. And as Ada works her tail off to save this small town coffee shop, she might just find herself getting closer to the man himself.

Brew yourself a pot of coffee, because this small town contemporary romance from New York Times bestseller Krista Lakes is sure to make this an all-nighter!

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

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.

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!)

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!

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.
