Whatever Whispers Available ​on Kindle ​Unlimited 10/22/24

On the shadowy campus of Cypress University, where ​ghosts of long-dead secrets linger, an unlikely romance ​falls into the lap of Professor Jack Hollis.

Quite literally.

Quinn Ivor, a brilliant and enigmatic forensic psychology ​student, is in need of a nanny job. A girl can only survive ​on instant ramen and expired Red Bull for so long.

She’s exactly what Jack is looking for now that he’s ​caring for his daughter Sienna full time.

As their professional and intellectual bond deepens, so ​does their attraction, defying the boundaries of ​propriety.

But their burgeoning relationship is haunted by more ​than just the whispers of their peers.

As Quinn and Jack navigate the treacherous waters of ​academia and their own desires (not to mention Sienna’s ​projectile baby vom), they must also confront the illusory ​presence that threatens to tear them apart. Will their ​love survive the dark forces conspiring against them, or ​will they become yet another chapter in the town's ​haunted history?

I'm from the middle of nowhere in the ​southeastern US, and writing has always been ​my dream job. I love it more than anything ​else I’ve ever done.

When I’m not writing, I’m hanging out with my ​husband, our four kids, and our veritable zoo ​of animals.

I also enjoy hiking, running, and fixing my ​mental health with early 2000s emo music.
