More About the Author

I write what I know and love: adult romance with blue-collar heroes and real-life flavor. Tattoos, handcuffs and men in uniform are a few of my favorite things, and it shows in my thirty+ published books.

I live in the South with my man in uniform, who I married for the entertainment value. Just kidding - it was the handcuffs, err, true love. ;) So far, our happily ever after includes a couple kids, German Shepherd dogs and a mutual appreciation of timely 'that's what she said' jokes.

When I'm not writing, I love reading, good coffee, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, outdoor adventures and serving my community as a volunteer EMT.

I also love hearing from readers, so don't be shy! If you've enjoyed something I've written, hearing from you would make my day.

Short, Sexy and Steamy! My three favorite colors! This is the prequel to Haunted Passions and introduces us to Brom, John and Katrina. It can be read as a stand alone Novella, but I strongly urge that you follow it up with the more full length novel, Haunted Passions.

Brom is still recovering from the loss of his lover during the war when the Enigmatic new school teacher, John Crane, arrives in town. Brom is immediately drawn to John's innocence, and even though he's an educated man he has a naivete' about him that reel's Brom in even further.

John hides his attraction to Brom initially until the pair share a glass of whiskey and a passionate kiss. Then Brom slips and address's John as his former lover while THEY are making love, quite possibly destroying any chance he had of building something with the sexy school teacher before it even begins. But loving another man is dangerous enough as it is. Even if John can get past Brom's slip of the tongue, so to speak, can he get past the lying and sneaking around for the few stolen moments he and Brom can share?

Blending into the background we have Katrina Van Tassel, quietly planting herself into Brom's life as well as John's. Given the name of the town is Sleepy Hollow and the names of the characters, it's almost immediately obvious that Rose is giving the Headless Horseman classic tale a revamp, with a heavy dose of M/M action!

This short story serves as a prequel to

Haunted Passions (Sleepy Hollow)

a ménage (M/M/F) erotic romance set in New York (state) at the end of the XVIII century dealing also with the famous legend of the headless rider.

This prequel, which cannot stand on its own, describes the meeting and the first passionate encounters of the two men while the female lead remains on the background and has no part in the sex scenes. Yet I am afraid only those readers liking mixed ménage will be able to appreciate this prequel as we soon realise that she is bound to play a major role shortly afterwards.

The story is good with a nicely paced, if unoriginal, plot. Writing is fairly good but the author has the tendency to overdescribe and overwrite, especially when detailing the emotions of her characters. Roles in bed are rigidly codified and this does not add to the sexual tension.

I was expecting a touching romantic story. Not that I was disappointed by the fact that this turned out to be nothing but an erotic homosexual fantasy. Being gay myself, I KNOW what it's like. I just couldn't get into this story at all because it didn't sound like it was coming from a male to male perspective. It sounded like the author was just scribbling down her own fantasies. It was free so I can't really complain too much. But, I was being open-minded when I thought that the name Ranae Rose belonged to a male. Now I know why it just didn't feel right . . . because it was coming from a woman who had no real life experience to draw on. I think I'm being generous with 3 stars . . . If you're gay . . . stay away!

While this book can easily read as a stand alone, the beauty in it is that it adds such depth to two of the three main characters in Haunted Passions. In this book, you see how John and Brom meet and form their friendship/relationship. If this was a stand alone book, I would never have considered downloading and reading it. I am not one for the m/m stand alone. I say this, because I think it might be worth a second look even if you are thinking that you prefer your romance m/f. I am glad I downloaded and read it before I read Haunted Passions. It really made the story "more".

You'll recognize some names and themes, but the story is completely different. If homosexuality or bisexuality is off-putting for you, I'd recommend you find another read. If it's not a problem for you, I urge you to read it. The story is multi-layered, impactful, and interesting. It's an easy read with no tripping over antiquated words. This one will stay on my Kindle for awhile - definitely wasn't an instant-delete for me.

★★★★1/2 WHISKEY DREAMS, the prequel to "Haunted Passions", was a fast, pleasurable read because the incredible writing let me relax and simply enjoy the story. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet yet smexy M/M historical romance (@ 60pgs)

Having forgotten everything but that WHISKEY DREAMS was an M/M historical, a mental fly kept buzzing about my head while reading. Not until @ 40% in did I finally realize that the story was a clever re-working of Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". (Yeah, I know, took me long enough but c'mon, I read that decades ago.)

Set in 1784 Sleepy Hollow, New York, Ms. Rose's version re-casts Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt as a former Continental Army soldier who is haunted by the death of his lover/fellow soldier during an ambush more than two years ago. Ichabod is replaced with the more agreeable John Crane, who is still a schoolmaster but becomes Brom's lover instead of his rival. And apparently, both are bi-sexual, which sets up nicely for the intro of the lovely Katrina Van Tassel in the latter part of WHISKEY DREAMS (as well as the story in "Haunted Passions").

Given its short length, Brom and John's relationship occurs at hyper-speed. Everything is from Brom's POV so the reader gets a very limited understanding of John. The sex scenes are highly erotic but their first kiss...
"... Slowly, recklessly, stupidly, he drew John close. Close enough that he could see bright flecks in his grey eyes, truly silver in the moonlight. ... With a last rush of whiskey-scented breath, Brom pressed his mouth against John's. ..."

Technically, I noticed certain oddities (such as narrative text combined with dialogue) and there were minor edit/proof errors.
