Joy’s Books

Joy’s debut novel, Strictly Passion, is a sexy and deliciously fun Single Title Contemporary romance set in Manhattan, complete at 100,000 words. Strictly Passion was a finalist in the PNWA Contest.

Hungarian immigrant turned billionaire, Stefano Marek is a ruthless corporate raider hell-bent on acquiring Warwick Tea, the one company he needs to avenge the wrongs done to his family. He besieges the posh Manhattan board room of Warwick Tea’s new CEO, Emma Warwick, expecting an easy victory over a spoiled heiress. Instead he finds an intriguing adversary who is equally determined to keep her family legacy in her own hands.

Abandoned by her fiancée and ignored by her family, Emma needs to prove herself by transforming Warwick into a global leader in the tea world. But caught between a sinister saboteur and a devilishly sexy corporate raider, she’s in way over her head.

Forced to work together to defeat the saboteur before they can battle each other for ownership of Warwick, Emma tries desperately to fight her traitorous feelings for Stefano and to keep their relationship strictly business. But Stefano plays a dangerous game, demanding her ultimate surrender in his quest to win over the tempting heiress and her company shares. Between sabotage on the tea plantation, his pride and her reputation, it will take nothing less than strictly passion to save Warwick and both their hearts.

Strictly Passion is a sexy and deliciously fun Single Title Contemporary romance set in a cosmopolitan world where Stefano’s ideals of American meritocracy duel Emma’s well-heeled reality of Town and Country and where matchmaking mavens, loyal family ties, and a sisterhood of eclectic women all conspire to help Emma and Stefano to win each other’s hearts.

Joy is halfway through drafting her next novel, Reckless Passion.
