Brody-Big Sky County

The first of my two holiday stories will be released on Thursday and it’s Brody which is part of the Big Sky County series.

I admit this was one of my favorite stories to write. Brody heads to Riker’s Creek searching for three men, one of which he knows is his biological father. It’s not just curiosity that makes him want to find him but something more important. On his first night in town he meets a woman who will soon become a big part of his life. I won’t give the story away but hope you’ll check it out. I’ll be giving away a copy of this book as part of my 12 Days of Christmas giveaway so check back shortly to find out more. And a big thank you to Shannon who offered the name of Brody for this character.







Two New Holiday Stories

I always try to write at least one holiday focused story and this year I’ve penned two.

The first one is Brody for the Big Sky County series. He’s a cowboy on a mission to find his biological father who he hopes still lives in Riker’s Creek. I won’t give away the reason he needs to find him but let’s just say it’s the season of miracles and Brody gets more than he ever wished for when Christmas Day rolls around. This story will be released on November 26th…Thanksgiving Day for those in the US. And a huge thank you to Shannon who offered the name for this cowboy!

The second story is Miracle Wolf for Christmas and it’s part of my Kalispell Shifters series. I know bears are a huge favorite for readers of the series, but this time it’s a wolf shifter who finds his human mate. Once again I tried to focus on the wonderful things that can happen when people least expect it. The release date for this one is December 17th.

Here’s a sneak peek of the cover of Brody-

Bear of Interest-Kalispell Shifters


If you’ve already read A Bear’s Baby, you already know Brady Walsh’s nemesis, Dr. Cole MacDonald. At the end of A Bear’s Baby, Cole found himself in a predicament. He’d shifted, gone for a run, and stumbled upon the body of a dead woman. Always one to do the right thing, Cole calls 911.

However, in Bear of Interest, he realizes he might have brought trouble to the shifters, especially when forensics find only bear prints near the crime scene, and nothing human. But not all is lost for Cole. The lead detective is Samantha Hardy. She’s got her eye on Cole and not only in a professional way. Can a cop and a bear shifter make the perfect pair?

This book will be released on Wednesday October 7th and remember you can win a copy of it by leaving a comment either on this post or the one about Evernight Publishing’s 5th birthday bash.

Hope you enjoy reading it and here’s a look at the cover-

A Bear’s Baby-Book 11-Kalispell Shifters


If you’ve read Protected by the Bear, you’ll already know Brady Walsh and Jenna Paxton. Brady’s company’s been ordered to shut down work on the new housing project he’s been overseeing due to fear of soil contamination. He needs a good lawyer and once again calls upon Jenna for her expertise. However, this time Jenna’s got other plans for Brady.

Upcoming New Series-Regency Rakes and Rogues

You’ve probably guessed I love writing stories that are part of a series. As well as my favorite shifters and cowboys, I enjoy historical books, especially those set during the Regency period. I’ve penned two trilogies in that genre so I thought it was time to work on a series. This one I’m calling Regency Rakes and Rogues. I’m currently working on book one in the series which I’ve titled Pleasured by a Lord. I’ve included chapter one in the re-released edition of The Pleasure Room. I finished the first draft last night. This will be my first all new self-published venture so fingers crossed! Once I’m done with editing and polishing it, it’s off to the eagle eyes of a professional editor.

I’ll be giving you updates on this book as I get closer to a release date but for now here’s a first look at the cover-


Big Sky County-Book Seven-Cash


If you’re following along with the Big Sky County series, you’ll already know Cash. He first appeared in Connor where he bid on Connor’s sister Katy. Just like the Nolan-Delaney’s, Cash’s family had a skeleton in their closet which was revealed in Ryan.

In this story it’s back to present day Montana with Katy and Cash heading off to Las Vegas where she hopes that the relationship will move from the platonic stage it’s been stuck in for the last few months.

However, Cash Doyle is, underneath his handsome façade, a broken man who’s keeping a secret from not only Katy, but the world.

The book will be released on Thursday July 30th and has been selected as an Editor’s Pick.


The Pleasure Room-Re-Release

I’ve now self-published The Pleasure Room and here’s a look at the new cover.

The Pleasure Room

It’s available on Amazon but I’ll be adding it to other sites in the next week or so. I’ve also added the first chapter of Pleasuring a Lord, which will be book one in my new series Regency Rakes and Rogues.

Hope you enjoy both the re-release and the sneak peek of my next Regency book.
