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

October 15, 2017

Autumn has arrived, the leaves have turned and are falling, and we’ve got the fireplace and heat fan going all day. The season has its pros and cons. My least favorite thing is being cold. My favorite, I think, is the occasional gorgeous sunrise. I’ve been posting some of them on my Facebook page.

Cover of Blue Moon Harbor ChristmasAlthough it seems early for Christmas books, Winter Wishes will be out on October 31. It’s an anthology containing my “Blue Moon Harbor Christmas” Susan Fox novella as well as holiday stories by Fern Michaels, Jules Bennett, and Leah Marie Brown. To celebrate, the authors, along with Allyson Charles and Kieran Kramer, are sponsoring a “12 Days of Christmas” reader appreciation celebration. There’s information about us and our stories, recipes, and other fun stuff – including daily giveaways and a grand prize. The event starts on October 16 and runs for, you guessed it, 12 days!

“Blue Moon Harbor Christmas” is a second-chance-at-love story. The heroine Jillian (a seaplane pilot) is a single mom. Eight years ago, when an unplanned pregnancy led to a “do the right thing” marriage proposal from Michael, she said no. They were just college hookups, not in a serious relationship, and she knew they had no foundation for building a family. Now, Michael (an architect) has done some growing up and he wants to connect with the child he’s never met, so he comes to Blue Moon Harbor for a 12-day holiday visit. Each day brings a new gift of knowledge, understanding, trust, and growing love. Day by day, Jillian, Michael, and their son Cole do lay a foundation, one that’s strong enough to create and sustain a loving family.

On December 26, the next Blue Moon Harbor book, Come Home With Me, will be out. Next month, I’ll update my website to include all the info about that book—so be sure to come back then!

In the meantime, all the best for a healthy, happy, productive autumn—filled with great books.

Holiday in Your Heart

Holiday in Your Heart

Title 8 in the Caribou Crossing Romances series.

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.
