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!


One night. One accident. And her life was forever changed.

Determined to leave the memories that haunt her behind, Kate Taylor prepares to drive across the country in search of place to start again. But it seems nothing will pull her out of her dark hole.

That is, until Ryan Grant comes along. Kate is no match for his perfect abs, irresistible smirk, and piercing green eyes that seem to see right through her. With one kiss, one touch, she’s giving into everything she swore she wouldn’t. This road trip was to be an escape from her past, and instead, she fears she might be reliving it.

Ryan might be the one to save her, but when Kate finally reveals that deepest darkest corner of her soul, will he be able to forgive her for the choices she still has left to make?

One decision changed my entire life. And I’ve been paying for it ever since.​​​​​

Seattle felt like the perfect place to hide. The perfect place for a reformed hacker who now fights for the other side to start over. And it worked. Things are better than ever. Even if my past is never far behind.

But when I see Ivy Green again, the woman I was never able to get out of my mind, I want her. For so much more than the one-night stand we had ten years ago. 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 novel

N​​​​​​​​​o relationships. No falling in love.

Those are my rules. Simple. Easy. Uncomplicated.

Then Kyle Grant walks into my life and tries to mess all that up with his GQ model looks, irresistible charm and cocky, take-no-prisoners swagger. But he’s my boss’s brother. We’re best friends. He lives in New York and I live in Seattle. And If all that weren’t enough to keep him snugly in the friend-zone, I have a secret which permanently forces me on the outside of love.

That doesn’t stop me from doing things I know I shouldn’t. Like spending the night with him. Like giving him my heart. Even if it means I might lose him forever.

I met Dr. Finn Banner on the worst day of my life.​​​​​​​

The day you graduate to become a midwife shouldn’t end in heart wrenching tragedy. One year later, I ran into him again. Only this time, he saved my life.

Turns out my gorgeous savior and I now work together in the same hospital. And he can be as sweet and charming as they come. When he’s not brooding, short-tempered and arrogant that is.

Our attraction is palpable. Our desire too great to ignore. And with every stolen glance, touch of my skin, and minute spent together, I need more. But the dark secrets of his past are unchangeable and I know I need to stay away.

There’s just one problem with that. How do you stay away from the man you think you’re falling for?

I let her slip through my fingers…
No, that’s a lie. I was reckless and pushed her away.
I was never supposed to fall for her. She was my tutor. My best friend. My fantasy. I tried to stay away. I failed.
Then we graduated and everything change. All I needed was a step back. A moment to breathe… And by the time I came up for air, she was in the arms of another man.

Four years later, everything is different. And when I see her again, I remember why I should have never let her go in the first place. But second chances don’t always come easy. Even when you’re determined to get them.​​

It started on day one… 
New school. New life. And there he was, the boy I grew up with, walking up the steps of my very first class. Except now, the boy from my memories was gone, and his place was an Adonis of a man. 
It didn’t take much for me to fall for him. Even though I knew we were doomed from the start. But when you find something that perfect, you don't second guess it. 
Until it ends. 
Four years later, he’s back. Steamrolling through my life like he never broke my heart to begin with. Only this time, I’m older, wiser and know that second chances are the stuff of fairytales.

I know she’s lying the moment I see her.  
That her name is as fake as her story. She’s barged into my life like a beautiful nightmare, turning everything upside down.
It hasn’t stopped me from trying to help her. Protect her. Save her from the threats that seem to come out of nowhere. 
She’s put my entire world at risk. My reputation. My business. My livelihood. 
But Mia brought me back to life. And I will do anything to save hers. 

I was running for my life the night I met Jake. 
Broken down on the road to nowhere. Lost. Homeless. Scared out of my mind. 
I don't care. I’m willing to risk it all to start over. Desperate to hide and never be found again. 
But it doesn't take much for Jake to break down my defenses. A soft word. A gentle touch. He becomes mine, but more importantly, I become his. 
Until the nightmare of my past shows up, pissed off as hell…

The Edge of Temptation - Featured in Illicit Box Set

​Pre-Order Now! Only $0.99 - Release Date 2/5/19

It starts out as a bet. A way to forget about my latest in a string of bad relationships and move on. I know it’s a mistake. My head and heart are just not into the game. Especially when I have a terrible knack for picking the wrong men. Then I see him.
The gorgeous man in the dark suit, drowning his sorrows in a glass of scotch is only supposed to be one night of fun. No strings. Zero expectations. No one gets hurts. Sounds perfect, right?
And when I wake up alone the next morning, it appears I’ve gotten everything I was after. Little do I know, this is only our beginning…

I’m not looking for a distraction. No. I’m perfectly miserable pickling myself in my drink when the fiery redhead bumps into me. Literally. And even though it’s one of the worst days of my life, I can’t say no to one night with her. 
I never expected to see her again. Never expected she’d be my patient. That I’d end up being her boss. But I have rules I won’t break. And we’re both as strung out on our pasts as two people can be.
All I have to do is stay away from the sexy temptation. Be one hundred percent professional. Should be easy, right? Except you know what they say about best laid plans…
