Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Father Christmas Saint Nick 2016As the big day quickly approaches, I want to take the time to thank everyone who has followed me during this past year, whether here on this blog, or on my Website, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Goodreads, All Author, or my new Smashwords account. If you have read one of my books, please consider leaving a review. You can do so at any of the retailers where the book is sold, on my website, or on Goodreads.

It has been a busy year and fans and followers like yourselves make the efforts all worthwhile. Take a few minutes to check out my new Smashwords Interview. https://www.smashwords.com/interview/MHSLM. In the next few months, I will be moving away from Amazon exclusivity in hopes of attracting more readers. Will it work? We’ll see.

snowbound-snugglesSimon and Schuster has two new bundles out with my work featured in them. Snowbound Snuggles is currently available from all online bookstores. It features my novel, On His watch, along with 5 other full-length novels.

Let it snow, let it snow! It’s time to stoke the fires and pour a glass of cabernet as you join these sexy couples who find love while they’re stranded together.

Cloaked in Christmas: Wulfkin Cacey Varg and her daughter have made a new life in Finland, far from her abusive ex. But as Christmas approaches, Cacey learns he’s coming to take their daughter. A massive snowstorm prevents her from fleeing and instead delivers a sexy stranger, powerful hunter Vincent Lyall, to her doorstep. Is love potent enough to win when two sexy wolf shifters, an unwelcome past, and animalistic urges wreak havoc on the holiday season?

Wynter’s Journey: Tragedy tore Wynter and Sam apart twelve years ago, and now she’s back at his doorstep, widowed, desperately broke, and very pregnant. What’s a nice guy to do but offer her shelter? But living under the same roof quickly leads to old feelings resurfacing, even if Wynter is determined to leave the pain of Scallop Shores behind. Now the one person Sam wanted to forget is the one person he can’t let go.

Edie and the CEO: Edie Rowan is passionate about workers’ rights, but when her protests backfire, championing the little guy gets her in trouble with sexy CEO Everett Kirk. He sends her to attend management camp—and even drives her there himself. But when they are forced to seek shelter in a snowstorm, they let down their professional guard, and the sparks start to fly.

Starr Tree Farm: Laura Tanner returns home a year after her husband’s death and reunites with Brad Asher, a wounded vet who has come back to pull his life together. When her husband’s murderer targets Laura, too, can her childhood-playmate-turned-devilish-man unravel the secret before it’s too late?

On His Watch: Special Agent Jason Spark is enjoying some welcome peace and quiet when he’s summoned to a 911 call and steps into a horrifying bloodbath. Survivor Nikki Hart believes Jason might be the angel sent to protect her, and willingly goes into hiding with him in a mountain cabin far from civilization. But when she learns about the secret role he played in her tragedy, can she ever forgive him?

As If You Never Left Me: Rey and Joely Birch had what they thought was a perfect marriage … until it fell apart. Joely picked up the pieces and built a successful retail business. Now Rey is back on the doorstep of her mountain cabin, determined to win her heart again. But will his carefully laid plans disintegrate when she finds out what really brought him to Colorado?

The Election Connection: War widow Lily Ashton’s heart is closed to love, so she’s the perfect choice to play fiancée to help secure a re-election for her pal, Congressman Ford Richardson.

Drawn to Jonah: New York-trained artist Quinn Baker is back home in Scallop Shores to reconnect with her family and figure out what to do with her life. Then handyman Jonah Goodwin asks an intriguing favor: teach him to read. Illiteracy has kept widower Jonah from forging friendships and building a career his daughter could be proud of, and hiding his secret has always been a full-time job. Yet something about Quinn inspires trust—but can she show him that he, too, is deserving of love?

Wildflower Redemption: Luz Wilkinson returns to tiny Rose Creek, Texas, to lick her wounds and toughen her resolve against love’s sting. She wants nothing more than to spend her days caring for discarded animals. But will Aaron Estes, her riding student’s widower dad, spur her to try again?

In Plain Sight: Widow Misty Starr has fled her past to settle in Pine Falls, New York, where she feels safe enough to sing in an amateur theater revival of Jesus Christ Superstar. Then dashing Nick Anthony joins the cast and stirs up feelings she thought long dead. The doctors say there’s nothing wrong with his vision, yet the former concert pianist and secret CIA courier has been blind since the accident that killed his wife. As Misty and Nick’s attraction grows, so, too, does a series of suspicious events. Nick holds the key to protect them, but only if they both drop their secrets to see the truth.

Finally retired after more than 30 years as a teacher! Now, I get to spend my time gardening, enjoying my grandchildren, and writing. I finally completed the number one item in my bucket list and Crimson Romance published my first novel, Fire Angel, in April 2013. Since then I have sold 24 other manuscripts to date and don't plan to quit writing for a long time yet.
