Likewise, my Alaska Heat series is a dark, dangerous adventure in the wilds of Alaska with a very scary bad guy, guns, and dead bodies, but it's rich with the emotional journey of two ordinary people with tragic pasts that still haunt them. Two courageous souls struggling to find out who they are, and to come out of the darkness into a place of peace. It's their shared journey, their finding of a soulmate, that helps push them to face their worst nightmares and finally find the relief and love that they've struggling to find for so long.
They could be you. They could be me. They could be any of us who wake up in the morning wishing for more. The characters in my stories find their happy endings because they don't give up, because they have courage, because they let love into their lives, and it's my hope that sharing their journeys will be hope and joy and peace into my reader's lives as well. Never give up on a happier life. Never give up that things can get better. It can. Truly. I know it, I've lived it, and I want to give that hope to others who are struggling the way I did for so long.
You can read directly about my journey in my non-fiction book, THE FEEL GOOD LIFE, but in truth, all my books take that same path of tapping into the depths of the human soul, of touching up on that anguish, that loneliness, those though times, and using love, romance and dreams to bring that uplifting happy ending that helps us look at the world with a smile that's just a little brighter.

I have not had the pleasure of reading your books yet... looks like I need to change that!
There has to be a reason why you were chosen to write your posting today. You couldn't have had a better time to come here and talk about your books. Although I've heard your name before, I can't say that I'm familiar with your books, and I'm sorry, until today. There are reasons, known only to me, that I've chosen to look up your books. I think that they have been selected for me to be read at this particular time of my life. There is a lot of junk swirling around me, and I think that reading your books will give me some added peace. Thank you for sharing your thoughts today, and I'm going to be sure to look your books up!!
I think romance and love is a great theme. The
I read Kiss At Your Own Risk and loved it. Can't wait to read
I'm sorry to hear that the hero's were tortured into becoming the "perfect" mates. But I quess anyway you can get them will do.
You have a wicked fun/funny imagination and i absolutely love your paranormal romances! Wish you wrote faster! :)
It's always the characters that make the book a good one for me. I have to be interested in them.
Your Soulfire Series with the humor added in, having tortured warriors doing cross-stitching, crocheting, poetry, etc., leads me to believe you're a bit of a comedian, besides being an author (what an imagination)! I have not read this series, but definitely want to with a twist like this in the characters becoming perfect mates. I'm ready for a good laugh!
I can't wait to read Hold Me If You Can!
Thanks for a great post! I've heard such wonderful things
I have not had the pleasure of reading any of your work but I love the way you described the Soulfire Series and how you try to keep the reader on their toes. I love books that keep you guessing what is going to happen next.
