Whether it’s the crazy things they say or the racy romantic encounters, I like to push it to the edge to leave my readers wanting more. In my books or my projects, as I like to call them, I like to show a strong sense of family and togetherness for the most part. Coming from a large family that supports each other has served me well in my writing because I like to believe the bonds my characters have are actually believable, you can tell they really love one another.
I really wanted to do suspense in the beginning, but everything I seemed to do, in my opinion, needed a good romance to balance it. I fit mostly into the romance category, but all of my projects have plot twists like you wouldn’t expect, also giving them the suspense factor I so desperately craved. I get so excited when I begin a new project because I get to put more of my off the wall sayings and crazy personality into my new cast.
My writing style is classified in so many ways. I do romance, it’s my main thing, but I throw a splash of suspense and loads of intrigue to really drive my point home. I’ve been writing professionally for two years now, and I have seven published projects and the eight, entitled The Vegas Valentine Cartel: An Urban Romance 2, will be out this Month. In total, I have about sixteen books written and am working on number seventeen.
I focus best with music on my headphones while throwing all the crazy ideas I have together to come up with amazing stories. In short, I love what I do, and I put so much of myself into my writing and try to make each story relatable and exciting. My secret is music. I can put on a smooth R&B soundtrack and the ideas just pour in." -M. Skye

Cree Olsen’s life is pure, unadulterated hell. But in one night, Cree Olsen is dead and Ashley Valentine is born. Escaping her nightmare of a life, Cree, now known as Ashley, is swept up in the allure of Vegas living. That is, until she discovers her new husband, Dalton’s deadly secret.
Having hid his hustle from Ashley for over two years, once Dalton returns to his hometown, he has no choice but to show her the real Dalton Valentine, one of Vegas’ most dangerous kingpins. While he is ready to assume his role as the leader of the Valentine legacy, his family’s cartel, Ashley finds herself sucked into a world she never wanted to be a part of, and against all odds, Dalton puts her before everything; even his new position. When Dalton finds himself fighting for power against a rival cartel, he takes the streets by storm, with Ashley by his side. They’re determined to crush anyone who gets in his way, until his whole camp gets sucked into a vicious turf war. In an effort to hang on to his claim on the streets and uphold the Valentine name, Dalton and Ashley fall into a fight of the death. They quickly learn that there is no honor among thieves, and family can sometimes be worse than strangers.
