Sexy romance that’s passionate, heartwarming, and fun!
Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. A new year brings fresh opportunities and challenges, so I hope we all rise to meet the challenges and take full advantage of the opportunities.
For me, January 1st meant starting to write a new book. I finished Come Home with Me (the third Blue Moon Harbor title) in December and sent it off to my editor, and then started the fourth title, tentatively called Break Free with Me. The first title, Fly Away with Me, is with the copy editor, and any day now I should have my editor’s comments on the second, a novella titled “A Blue Moon Harbor Christmas”. Confused? Just imagine all the characters and story lines I have to keep track of!
We’ve spent the past month in the San Diego area, where the weather has been chillier and wetter than normal. I know California needs the rain, so I’m trying to be happy about it, but personally I could sure handle more sunshine and warmer temperatures. All the same, it’s really cold back home and they’ve had a fair bit of snow, so I’m happy to be here rather than there. I’m posting photos on my Facebook page if you’re interested in seeing what I’m up to.
I was flattered to be notified by Fresh Fiction that they’d chosen my eighth and final Caribou Crossing title, Holiday in Your Heart, as a Fresh Pick. They said, “The Fresh Pick is chosen by a group of readers and is never a purchased advertisement or promotion. We've chosen your book because it appeals to us and we like to share our diverse tastes in reading and hope other readers will give it a try.” Nice, right?
Each year, I choose a theme word or phrase, and for 2017 mine is “perspective” – meaning that I intend to focus on what’s important. For my last opinion poll contest, I asked people to tell me their own mottos for the year, and the results are on the Contest page. Congratulations to Vicki W from ND, who has won a desert-themed pendant I bought in Death Valley, plus an autographed copy of one of my books. A new contest is now running.
All the best for 2017!

The one thing thrift shop owner Maribeth Scott has always known is that she wants, more than anything, to be a mom. She’s dated “men, men, men” since she was a teen but never found “the one.” And so, as her fortieth birthday approaches, she decides on artificial insemination. Of course that’s the exact time that fate sends her Mo Kincaid, a man she might actually fall in love with. The mechanic is a redeemed sinner and a good man, but there’s a big hitch: he totally screwed up parenthood the first time around and has resolved never to do it again. But Caribou Crossing is a magical place and Christmas is a magical time—and who knows, maybe miracles really can happen!
“Fox...proves again that she knows what women want in a contemporary romance.” (Publishers Weekly)
Title 7 in the Caribou Crossing Romances series
Fire chief Lark Cantrell firmly believes that she, her mom, and her ten-year-old son Jayden are the perfect family. Men, like her father and her ex-husband, can’t be relied on—at least not for more than an occasional hookup. Major Eric Weaver has a single mission in life: to overcome his leg amputation and his PTSD and return to active service. As an army brat, he’s convinced that a career soldier can’t successfully have a family life. But when fate brings Eric and Lark together not once but twice, the cynical fire chief and the scarred soldier may just have to accept the writing on the wall: a happily-ever-after for everyone concerned.

Title 5 in the Caribou Crossing Romances series.
Inn-owner Dave Cousins is known as the nicest—and loneliest—guy in town. Dare he risk his damaged heart again, on a free-spirited drifter? Like the wild goose tattooed on her shoulder, Cassidy Esperanza goes wherever the wind takes her, yet she has to admit there’s something seductive about Caribou Crossing—and especially Dave. But when she faces a life-changing medical diagnosis, her first instinct is to take flight once more. Is Dave strong enough to help them both face their fears and believe that sometimes love truly can last a lifetime?
Lawyer Kieran Bridge’s carefully planned life has unraveled. Distraught, she travels to Crete—the island she and her deceased father had always been drawn to—in search of the key to her future. She finds far more than she’d bargained for: a country that awakens her senses and emotions, and a man who challenges her as she’s never been challenged before. She feels an inexplicable connection to Dr. Stefanos Dimitrakis, a fugitive accused of murdering his uncle. When Stefanos insists he’s innocent, Kieran’s instincts tell her to believe him—but in the past her judgment has failed her. How can she now believe in a bond that defies reason?
