'tis the Season to Read a Christmas Book!

I've got plenty of them on the virtual shelves, starting with my romantic-comedy novella Her Very Merry Mistake, which is a bargain at 99 cents. And a lot of fun. The plot: Lenora Patterson made a big mistake and now it’s been broadcast all over the pre-holiday radio waves that the maddening Nikos Calloway is the love of her life. Trouble is, Nikos believes it.


My other Christmas booksWinter HeatWish Upon a Christmas Star, The Christmas Gift and my all-time bestseller Cole for Christmas—are all available digitally. Click on any book title or book cover for description and retail links.


Because there’s no better time than the holidays to fall in love with love.



I'm in the Mood for RomCom

Here's a slideshow of the covers of my romantic comedies. Because the world doesn't only need love; it needs laughter. too! 


The One Who Got Away

Do you ever think about The One Who Got Away? The person from your past you can't forget. The one who creeps into your mind when you least expect it and gets you thinking about what might have been.


That question spurred me to write the connected books Once Smitten & Twice Shy, which are packaged together in a single eBook. The two romantic comedies were originally published by Harlequin Duets, but the concept is, of course, timeless. So I updated the volumes and got my multitalented daughter (who is also a forensic scientist!) to design a new cover. My hope is that readers will be as intrigued by the question as I've always been. 


A group of friends explore the phenomenon of The One Who Got Away in Once Smitten & Twice Shy with surprising results. Let's just say that life doesn't always go the way you expect it to.

Love, Laughter and Happily Ever After

What the word needs now is... romantic comedies! While I work on a trilogy about three Devine brothers who are simply divine, I offer you this slideshow of the romcoms I've written.


Judging To The Max by its Cover

You can judge this book by its cover. FBI agent Max Dolinger is pictured in black and white on the eye-catching cover of To The Max for a good reason. That's the way Max sees the world. And it's about to get in the way of his relationship with the woman he's falling in love with.


Available digitally for the first time, To The Max is an updated version of a book from my backlist. Because of Max's rigid way of looking at right and wrong, I thought it would be fun to try something different with the cover. My cover artist, who happens to be my daughter, agreed. She had the idea to contrast red lettering with the black and white image of Max.


In the book, Sara Reynolds enlists Max's help in keeping her brother out of jail. Trouble is, Max thinks her brother probably belongs there. Will Max ever be able to see shades of gray? You'll have to read the book to find out.
