More About the Author
I've written some fun things ... short romantic comedies... those are the Silhouette Romance titles. I especially liked SNOWBOUND BABY which was book 3 of the Bryant Baby Bonanza series which also included BABY BEFORE BUSINESS and PRINCE BABY. But my favorites for Silhouette were the books of the Brewster Baby Boom series (THE BABY BEQUEST, BRINGING UP BABIES and OH, BABIES) where three bachelors inherit triplets. Those were fun to write. I go back every now and again and read them myself for a laugh!
My last few releases for Harlequin HER BROODING ITALIAN BOSS and A BRIDE FOR THE ITALIAN BOSS featured beautiful Tuscany settings. In February, I'll introduce two Princes from a powerful island country below Spain who find love in the most unexpected ways. They're marriage of convenience stories that blend emotion with the fun of two heroines suddenly finding themselves married to princes ... one of them a pregnant bride!
My latest Bliss romances from Entangled are the Donovan Brothers Novels: HER SUMMER WITH THE MARINE, CHASING THE RUNAWAY BRIDE and HEAD OVER HEELS FOR THE BOSS. These stories follow the three Donovan Brothers, abused by their dad as kids, as they find real love in the crazy small town of Harmony Hills, Pennsylvania. They're sexy billionaire businessmen.
My Harlequin Romances are a little (sometimes a lot) more serious and emotional than my Silhouettes and Entangled Bliss titles, but I always deliver a heartwarming story that reminds readers that family and love go hand in hand.
Sweet, funny, sad or sexy, my characters make some serious lemonade out of their lemons! :)
Because that's how I see life. I have three kids...one of whom has epilepsy. Raising him taught me (and my husband and our other two kids) that sometimes a situation that seems bad can have its blessings.
Also, being raised in a family of 11 kids (yes, 11) I learned a lot about sharing and how love encompasses more than just romance.
Having been with my husband for a long time, I still believe the best thing in life is romantic love. Being treasured, respected and wanted.
So pick up one of my books this week or weekend and see my sometimes wacky, sometimes heartrending vision of real love!

Her Summer with the Marine is an outstanding, emotional read that will make you laugh, cry and be sad when the book ends! LOVED it!!!
And there isn’t enough business in this small town for both of them.
This story is so sweet and fun, I can’t even tell you. I LOVED the tension from the fact that both characters had a NEED for their business to succeed. And you want both of them to succeed, even though it’s not possible.
And then there’s the romance. They both have feelings for each other, or at least desires, but they are competing for their lives (or the lives of their parents, really). The tension this causes is spectacular, and when they give in to their desires, the scenes are HOT! Bliss readers who have been looking for a little more steam will be thoroughly satisfied. And readers who love a small town, enemies (or frenemies) to lovers story, will be in heaven.
Her Summer with the Marine was a sweet story that follows the classic (fr)enemies turned lovers romantic trope. Finn and Ellie have a past rife with friendly competition but also new teenage attractions and romance, as well as misunderstandings and disappointments. The latter has caused Ellie to stay away from her hometown longer then she should have and it takes her fathers heart-breaking illness to make her return. Some aspects with definitely tug on your heartstrings but Her Summer with the Marine is also a humorous story with plenty of crazy antics you could imagine coming from a funeral home environment. If you were a childhood fan of Pretty Girl, you'll want to pick this book up.Read more ›
This is one deep book. OMG! You laugh and cry during it. Yet, it is so worth every tissue and tear it. This author really knows how to grip you in the depth of your emotions to feel the characters pain and joys.
Ellie McDermott is called home to Harmony Hills, Penn. By the Chief of Police. Her dear widowed father was found wandering in the park across the street naked. Ellie leaves her life as an ad agent in Pittsburg with not a thought to get to her father.
It turns out he has Alzheimer’s and will need long term care. Ellie has some major decisions to make, you see her dad owns McDermott’s Mortuary. Before the sun had really set that first day Finn Donovan comes a calling.
Who’s he you ask? Finn is only the man who was the boy who competed with Ellie for every quiz, contest, or award since grade school. He was also the guy who deflowered her. Now, he sees that the opportunity has opened up for him to make a move on her dad’s business and he does. Why? Why, would he want it and can’t she run it and will she need the steady income from it to help take care of her dad?
But, could she ever sell it to the man who stole the most prized gift a woman has? Especially, without ever looking back or talking to her again until now? Surprisingly it can be resolved and there is a HEA. But don’t expect it to be smooth sailing it is bumpy and there will be a lot of tears at least there were for me. Very good story that I gave 5 stars.
