My Sleeping Giant…


Hey Guys,

Not quite sure that it’s accurate to say that I’ve never written an interracial romance novel. After all, the Tesanos were an interracial group, right? I must admit that I’m kind of confused by the whole multicultural and interracial designation which is weird considering how long I’ve been in this business and how many of my titles are listed in the multicultural romance section. I could say that I’ve never written a BWWM novel, but that’s not accurate either considering Lover’s Allure and A Lover’s Sin where our heroine Darby Ellis travels to Scotland and meets our dashing hero Lord Kraven DeBurgh…

I guess I consider “Intoxicated” my first foray into the IR genre because it’s coming onto the stage as a standalone (not for long, I have 3 more titles in store). As for Kraven and Darby, they were already a part of the Ramsey Tesano world by the time I delved deeper into their story.

Regardless of all that, I decided to launch a new site and new pen name-Ally Fleming- following the completion of my newest release “Intoxicated” Book One in the Sleeping Giants Series.


Don’t worry, I’m not writing exclusively as Ally Fleming, but when this idea hit I knew I wanted to explore it and see what unfolded. I’m very pleased with the results and hope you guys will give it a read and let your reader friends-who enjoy interracial romantic suspense- know if it’s worth their time.


Toodles & Love Until Next Time,

The Pizza Scene from “Return”

Hey Everybody,

This scene didn’t make it into the book. Thought I’d share. Happy Friday!

I’ve heard from so many of you fanatics about all these withdrawals you guys are going through since the release of the final Ramsey Tesano title “A Lover’s Return” The book was running so long over 120K words, so there were things that I thought I should cut. I guess it’s safe now to share some of those items and give those who need it a quick fix.

This is not a spoiler scene, so if you haven’t read the book…WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?? Seriously, this won’t spoil it for you. Read and enjoy.
