Sexy romance that’s passionate, heartwarming, and fun!
April 17, 2017 – and a belated happy Easter!
I’m excited to tell you that I’ve updated my website to include Fly Away With Me, the first title in my brand new Blue Moon Harbor series. You’ll find the cover, a blurb, an excerpt, behind-the-scenes notes and photos (including the “one sheet” I used for the series proposal), a recipe for raspberry-oat muffins, a discussion guide, and purchase links.
Fly Away With Me comes out on July 25, 2017 (pen name Susan Fox; publisher Kensington Zebra). A couple of weeks ago I went over the page proofs, and was reminded of how much I love this book!
I’ve also prepared Advance Review Copies (ARCs) of Fly Away With Me, so if you’re a reviewer and would like a copy, please drop me a note through the Contact form.
Also, this past month, I got my editor’s notes on Come Home With Me and revised that manuscript. And in between revisions and proofreading, I’ve been writing the book that comes after that. I have a lot of characters running around in my head!
It’s actually been a good month for writing-related activities, because spring is playing nasty here. Lots of rain, wind, and chilly temperatures. I’ve squeezed in my walks, because my body needs the exercise, and made it out into the garden a few times to pull weeds, but I’ve also spent a whole lot of time in the recliner by the fireplace, with manuscript pages or my laptop on my lap. I’m really ready for a sunny spring!
Congratulations to Dayo in the UK and Marjorie in Georgia, who both won copies of Holiday in Your Heart in the big BookSweeps “Seasoned Contemporary Romance” giveaway last month. And congratulations to the winner of my monthly opinion poll contest, Rhonda P from TX, who won an autographed copy of her choice of my books, and also a trade paper copy of her choice of The Darkest Lie by Pintip Dunn or Once Upon a Christmas by Maggie Robinson, Tiffany Clare, J.K. Coi and Elyssa Patrick. A new contest is now running.
May the coming month bring sunshine into all our lives!

Title 1 in the Blue Moon Harbor series
Only for her ailing mom would busy lawyer Eden Blaine travel to a dot-on-the-map Pacific Northwest island. She’s searching for her long-lost aunt, who once had ties to a commune on the island. Having broken up with her longtime boyfriend, romance is the last thing Eden is looking for—but her gorgeous seaplane pilot has her considering the merits of a carefree rebound fling. Thanks to Aaron Gabriel’s troubled childhood, he has no illusions about happily ever after. But he appreciate a pretty woman’s company, and Eden is the exact combination of smart and sexy that turns him on. Still, as he helps her search for her missing aunt, the casual relationship they both envisioned becomes something much more. Can two people determined to ignore romance recognize that their heated connection is the kind of love destined to last?
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 6 in the Caribou Crossing Romances series
When Ben Traynor, a sexy cowboy from Sally Ryland’s past, turns up at her Western riding school at the behest of her estranged family, the young widow must face the demons from her abusive marriage in order to heal and to not only reconnect with her past but move ahead to a bright new future.
