Still Time!

There’s still time to get all the Holiday Cafe Series for only $3 at All Romance!

Masked Heart FOR WEB

Masked Hearts

Mark is a rich single dad crazy about his son’s teacher. Sienna, recently ditched at the altar, refuses to date him but agrees to nights of breathless sex in his expansive house in the foothills. On a whim, she binds herself to the tie rack in his closet and realizes how much she trusts him with her body. But will she ever trust him with her heart?


Veteran Hearts

Jessica and Kyle have a book club of two at the Holiday Cafe. Jessica wants to heat things up with the hot but quiet Kyle only to find out his time as a soldier in Iraq prevents him from getting close. But after one romantic book suggestion, a goodnight kiss turns into much, much more…

Thankful Heart FOR WEB
Best Seller At All Romance!

Thankful Hearts

All Stacy wants is the perfect Thanksgiving at her new house. And after a year without sex, a boyfriend would be the whipped cream on the apple pie.

All Hudson wants is the perfect Thanksgiving after his third Army tour in Afghanistan. But he arrives home to find his brother engaged to his girlfriend. He takes off on his Triumph motorcycle to drive 700 miles to the only place he can think of: the Holiday Cafe.

Stacy and Hudson knew each other on Words with Friends, but when he arrives to meet Stacy and share an Apple Pie Latte with a shot of toffee their relationship goes from platonic to romantic faster than his Triumph accelerator.

Becoming a Romance Heroine: Tattoos

When I think tattoos, I think paranormal romance. But henna tattoos are an indulgence every woman can get to have a little fun. It’s usually a tantalizing design and fades away after a couple of weeks.

My girlfriends and I have gone out to get henna tattoos together a couple of times. It’s a great ladies night out with the added bonus of being a turn on to Lover when he sees the tattoo.

They aren’t that expensive and totally worth the evenings of fun!

Here’s a picture of my publicist’s hand at our last girl’s night out:


I love the glitter in it!

Elegant Treat

This weekend my lover made an elegant treat for me that I wanted to be sure to pass on to you: red sparkling wine over berries. Though the sparkling wine is good, the best part is eating the berries when the drink is gone. Delicious and romantic!


Today is the last day to receive your free copy of Masked Hearts from Smashwords! If you haven’t downloaded it yet, use the coupon code HD24G to get it.

Also, if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, my new novel Corporate Fire is free to you! Otherwise it’s only $3.99 for Kindle.

I hope you enjoy my stories!



Publishing Update

Wow! Masked Hearts is getting Great reviews on Amazon! Five 5 star reviews in the US and one 5 star review in Canada. One hundred percent five stars! One reviewer says it’s a great fall book, so give it a try even if we’re past Halloween. Reading the reviews gets me excited about the next one, which I’m working on now.

The next Holiday Cafe Book will be Thanksgiving, coming out next fall. It’s an intense love story between an Afghanistan veteran and a bank manager. They meet on the internet and, of course, come together at the Holiday Cafe. I’m loving writing it.

But….my next book and new series just returned from the first read through by my editor! Corporate Fire will be released in January. I’m working on her suggestions, and I’m so happy it doesn’t need a major rewrite. We’re also looking at cover artists and thinking about designs.

So lot’s of work happening over here. I can’t wait to share my stories with you!

Top Five Characters I wanna Hang Out With

Sorry, I’m a little late on my post this week for Larissa and Friends Bookish Life Top Five Sundays. After a month of promoting Masked Hearts, I needed to get more mundane things organized like getting my car fixed and registered. I’m super pleased with the reviews it’s getting and even got an awesome email from a reader saying she couldn’t put the book down.

Apparently I can’t stop promoting 🙂

Anyway, on with Top Five Sundays! This week it’s the top five characters you want to hang out with!

Elizabeth Bennet


Victoria In RED


Anne Shirley
