Sexy romance that’s passionate, heartwarming, and fun!

November 15, 2016

Daylight savings has arrived, most of the autumn leaves have fallen, and my first task every morning is to get a fire going in our fireplace. I’m exchanged the regular leggings for fleece-lined ones, and flip-flops have given way to socks and sheepskin slippers. It’s the time of year to … think of heading south for the winter! Yes, that’s our plan – leaving at the end of November in Rex, our motor home, and probably not returning until sometime in February. If you want to follow the journey and see some of my photos, I’ll be posting on my Facebook page.

I’m on Pinterest now , and slowly adding boards and pins. I’d love it if you came to visit. I’ll hope to add some travel photos there, too. WiFi access is usually iffy from campgrounds, but I’ll do my best.

On the writing front, I finished Come Home With Me, the second Blue Moon Harbor novel, and sent it to critiquers. Doing the final revisions will be my December project. I’m also starting on the next book in the series. And while I’m away I’ll keep up with any edits and copy-edits for Fly Away With Me and “A Blue Moon Harbor Christmas,” the first novel and novella in the series. It’s a wonderful world when manuscripts can go back and forth by e-mail rather than relying on the postal service and couriers!

Congratulations to this month’s opinion poll contest winner, Tracey P from CA. She receives an autographed copy of one of my books plus her choice of Bittersweet Creek by Sally Kilpatrick or The Last Time She Saw Him by Jane Haseldine.

How do you feel about the approach of the holiday season? That’s the question I’m asking for this month’s contest.

Holiday in Your Heart

Holiday in Your Heart

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!

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.

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?

Fly Close to the Sun

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?
