Sexy romance that’s passionate, heartwarming, and fun!
December 15, 2014
Can you believe the year is almost over, and the holiday season is upon us? Where did 2014 go? I hope you’ve had a terrific year, and that you finish the year off in style—whether that means a bunch of parties, or sociable times at home with family, or curled up in a big chair with a stack of good books.
As for me, I have something quite different going on. My sweetie and I are tired of our damp, chilly Pacific Northwest winters and we’re heading out in our new (very used!) motor home in search of warmth and sunshine. Hello, California and Arizona, here we come! I'm posting occasional travel photos and bulletins on my Facebook page, if you want to find out how things are going.
Much of my past month was focused on the December 2 release of Love Me Tender, with a number of blogs and other promotional events taking up way too much time. But I did get a start on a new Caribou Crossing, tentatively titled Ring of Fire. The heroine is a female fire chief and a single mom. Wish me luck, writing her story while on the road in a motor home!
Congratulations to all the readers who won free books at the various promotional events—and to the winner of my website opinion poll, Jane K from FL, who won a carved cherry wood bookmark and an autographed copy of her choice of my books.
See you in the new year!

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?
Title 4 in the Caribou Crossing Romances series.
Dedicated RCMP Corporal Karen MacLean secretly longs for marriage and a home like the one she grew up in, but most men are intimidated by her uniform. Not much intimidates undercover cop Jamal Estevez, however. His only problem is believing—and proving—that a recovering alcoholic who’s never had a real home deserves the love of a woman like Karen.
Title 3 in the Dirty Girls Book Club series.
When Lily Nyland’s book club chooses an erotica novel featuring BDSM, the family practice doctor finds the subject problematic. A strong feminist, she believes in independence and equality between sex partners – and that’s exactly what she has with her helicopter bush pilot husband Dax Xavier. What they don’t have is time together, true intimacy, communication, and a deep level of trust. In fact, their marriage is in serious trouble. When Dax, home for Christmas, starts spicing up their sex life with naughty tricks he’s borrowed from her book, she’s shocked to find herself turned on. Can passion and kinky sex trigger the kind of intimacy and communication that will help Lily and Dax determine whether they still love each other and whether their marriage is worth fighting for?
These sweet short stories are designed for the busy woman who deserves a few minutes of self-indulgence – on the bus or train to work, during coffee or lunch break, while waiting to pick the kids up, sitting in the doctor or dentist’s waiting room, sinking into a bubble bath before bed, or . . . well, I’m sure you get the picture.
