Romance Novels With An Edge

About Me

Hello and welcome to my site! 
My name is J. Saman. 
I am a nurse practitioner living in New England with my husband and three awesome girls. I love all types of novels, but find myself always going back to writing romances. I'm an admitted lover of picking at old wounds, second chance romances and the perfect amount of angst . I write smart, strong women and sexy alpha (slightly nerdy) men who have a softer side.​​
I have several stories in the works so hang tight. More to come!
Email me if you want to chat. I love hearing from people!


I​​ had the perfect life. Then an accident took everything I loved.
After two years of barely getting by, I need to get away from here.
My plan? Drive across the country until I find a new place to live. There is just one problem with that. I have to take an old family friend along for the ride. 
At first, I don't know what to make of Ryan Grant or the way it feels like he can see through me with those gorgeous green eyes of his. He's got secrets. And he's definitely holding a lot back. 
But wow, there's so much more to him than I expected. 
Not that it matters really, my heart and mind are trapped in the past. 

I've never had the perfect life. And lately work seems to be my only focus. 
Probably because I've been betrayed a time or two by people I thought I could trust. By people who were only after me for one thing. So I'm moving west from Philly to Seattle. 
There is just one problem with that. I don't fly. Ever. 
So when Katie Taylor offers to drive me across the country, how can I say no? She is my dream girl after all. Always has been. 
But is her tragic past too much for her to overcome?

I like to play by the rules. But when I get coaxed into crashing a party, I run into the last man I ever thought I’d see again, my one and only one-night stand, Luke Walker. It's been ten years since we’ve seen each other, but our chemistry is just as palpable as it was that night so long ago. Only problem is, I’m leaving in one month for a pediatric fellowship across the country.

I like to keep everything close to my chest. But when I see Ivy Green again, the woman I was never able to get out of my mind, I want her. It doesn't matter that my dark past and dangerous present mean I can't keep her. That my secrets would destroy any shot at a real future. After all, she's leaving in a month. What's the worst that could happen?
Can be read as a standalone, though it is part of the Start Again series

So when lacrosse star, Brandon Kessler, comes along with his all-American good looks, easy disposition and magnetic charm, things seem to be looking up. Even if they come from two totally different worlds.

No relationships. No falling in love.
Those are my rules. Simple. Easy. Uncomplicated.

The moment I laid eyes on Claire Sullivan, I knew she was different.
Then reality hit me. She’s my brother’s assistant. She lives in Seattle and I live in New York.
As if that wasn’t enough, she reminds me with annoying frequency that she doesn’t do relationships.
But I don’t care. I want her.
Now I just have to convince her to be mine.

Beautiful Potential

I just finished my next book. This one is a complete standalone with a sexy doctor and a fisty midwife and a whole lot of drama. Click here to pre-order it on Amazon for only $0.99

The moment I laid eyes on Gia Bianchi, I knew my life was never going to be the same. That she was capable of healing every miserable, messed-up piece of me.

She left me on the sidewalk only to walk back into my life one year later when I saved her life.
Now she’s everywhere.

Working in my hospital. Drinking in my bar. Ingrained in my every thought.

She needs my protection. I just need her.

But love is cruel. Trust is an illusion. And I will not give in to either again.

I'm determined to stay away. Even when she tries to make that impossible.

There's just one problem with that. How do you stop wanting what you cannot have?
