About Maggie Shayne
I’m Maggie Shayne.
I was born a storyteller, and I will cross to the other side a storyteller, and when I get there, I’ll haunt some young writer who’s still on earth by whispering my stories into her ears, because I’ll still be a storyteller. I think that’s what our muses are. Storytellers gone by. I am so incredibly blessed, because I got a really good one. I love her.
My stories are Paranormal Romances like my groundbreaking Wings in the Night vampire romance series, (the original “Twilight” vampire novels) and my wildly popular Fatal Series, (rom-com ghost mysteries with a Scooby gang you’ll want to join.) I’ve also penned two epic witch series, The Immortals and The Portal trilogy, along with fantasy romance quartet By Magic
My stories are also small town contemporary romances all about family, loyalty and love, like The Texas Brand Series, The Oklahoma Brands, and The McIntyre Men.
I have spun Romantic Thrillers like my career-best Brown & de Luca series, The Mordecai Young Series, The Secrets of Shadow Falls, Shattered Sisters.
All info about my books and my CoffeeHouse blog are at MaggieShayne.com
I also write spiritual self-help books. I blog and teach about natural magic, the law of attraction. I offer personal readings, and I have a little magic shop. You can find all of that at BlissBlog.org
I love who I am, what I do, and everything about my life. I especially love my readers, because, let’s face it, storytelling would be pretty pointless without them. You. I love knowing you as much as possible, via email, Facebook, Twitter, my newsletter and my blogs.
So pick a story, any story, and then curl up in a comfy chair, and wrap your softest blanket around your shoulders. Fill your favorite mug with your favorite warm beverage and fall into my worlds for a little while. I think you’re gonna like it here.

Titles By Maggie Shayne
Sheriff Garrett Brand has raised his entire brood of siblings single-handedly, and he’s done his best to teach them some values, to mold them into honorable, responsible, and trustworthy human beings. So when a baby lands on the doorstep of the Texas Brand, his first question is which younger brother is in for a butt-kicking?
But the little fellow isn’t named after Ben, or Wes, or Adam, or Elliot. The little guy is named after him–Garrett Ethan Brand–according to the note his mama left behind.
He’s still racking his brain to figure it all out, when a woman shows up at the ranch in the dead of night, fighting mad and accusing Garrett of murdering her sister and stealing the baby!
She’s lost too much…
Chelsea is confused, heartbroken, and too mad to think straight, and the same trouble that found her poor sister is right on her tail.
What she doesn’t know is that of all the places she and the baby could’ve wound up, this ranch is the best one. Because this is one family that knows how to pull together.
Trouble doesn’t stand a chance against the Texas Brands
So does Lash, who got his fill of large families and overbearing “brothers” during his childhood in foster care. He’s a loner and a drifter and he intends to stay that way.
Can the youngest Brand on the ranch handle six uncooperative males and land the man of her dreams?
Maybe, but when trouble finds Lash and he heads off to face it alone, everything else takes a back seat, because the Brand family sticks together, and like it or not, Lash has become a part of that family.
Much as he doesn’t want their help, the cavalry shows up, with Jessi leading the charge.
Wes Brand is the black sheep of the family. But lately, he’s become friends with an old Shaman named Turtle who has hidden reasons for wanting to put Wes in touch with his Comanche roots.
Turtle convinces Wes to impersonate legendary warrior Wolf Shadow, to drive archaeologist Dr. Taylor McCoy away from her dig site. His failing health provides plenty of leverage and he’s not ashamed to use it.
But when the beautiful doc finds herself falling for both Wes and his ghostly alter-ego, Wes wonders how he’ll get out of the mess he’s made without ruining the powerful feelings beginning to grow between them.
Ben Brand is still in mourning for his long lost wife, Penny. It’s been two years since she died in a fiery car wreck leaving her wedding band as the only identifiable thing on her body.
Now he wonders if his endless grief has finally driven him crazy, because he’s seen her, twice now, once outside his gym in town where he teaches martial arts to kids, and once right outside his bedroom window.
Is Ben losing his mind...or experiencing a miracle?
Taken in by a reclusive billionaire with a secret identity, Marcus was trained to take the older man’s place when he could no longer serve as the elusive crime-fighter known as the Guardian.
Casey is a reporter, but unlike every other member of the press, she’s not after the Guardian to unmask him. She needs his help to protect her younger sister. Someone from her shadowy past is after her, and Casey is sure she’s in danger.
Marcus couldn’t have known that helping Casey would bring him into the midst of the huge loving family he never knew he had, much less into Casey’s loving arms. Or that helping Casey would unwrap a Christmas miracle that would heal his wounded heart.
Luke Brand wants a family. Aside from an overprotective mother who died young, he’s never had that. At least not until he drives his rig into Quinn, Texas to meet the family he’s never known.
His cousins welcome him with open arms. Three months later, he’s still there, selling his semi to buy an abandoned house for back taxes, dreaming of settling down with a wholesome woman and raising some kids of his own.
Jasmine is not what some would call wholesome. She’s a waitress and sometimes exotic dancer at a Chicago club.
A classically trained dancer, Jasmine doesn’t mind doing what she has to. It’s all for her son, Baxter. She’ll do anything to protect him from the world.
When Baxter witnesses a murder at the club and becomes a target himself, Jasmine takes him and runs. Posing as her best friend, shot dead by the same killer who’s after Bax, she heads for Texas to hole up in the house her roomie inherited but wanted no part of.
The only problem with her plan is the sexy cowboy who’s already living there.
When Adam Brand’s first and only love Kirsten chose not to show up on their wedding day, he was devastated. When she turned up again, married to the town’s richest old man, it was almost a relief. His seething anger overpowered his heartbreak.
At least, outwardly it did. Inside he never understood, and rather than be forced to see her playing trophy bride to a billionaire, he left Quinn, Texas, his family, and the Texas Brand.
But now he’s back, and Kirsten’s in trouble. Her wealthy husband has been shot dead. His blood is on her hands, and his gun bears her prints.
The secrets she’s been keeping for longer than Adam ever suspected, have finally come home to roost, and there’s only one man who can save her from the mess she’s made of her life.
The one man with more cause to hate her than anyone, more cause to hate her than he even knows. And now she has no choice but to tell him the awful truth.
On break from her job teaching Kindergarten, Sarah has come to vacation at Sugar Keep, an old plantation in the Louisiana Bayou country.
But trouble hasn’t finished with her yet. It shows up in the form of darkly handsome Jake Nash, a man with a hands-off attitude and sizzling brown eyes, who turns out to be an ex-con suspected of murder.
Before she can make up her mind about him, someone is killed right in front of Sarah’s eyes. She doesn’t see the killer, but the killer saw her.
Now she’s on the run and there’s only one person protecting her. Jake. Is he “her shield” as a Voodoo Priestess told her, or is he stalking her with the intent to silence her forever?
When he first finds himself at an old west hanging in the middle of Quinn Texas, Elliot realizes that he probably hit his head a little harder than he thought when he ran his brother’s truck into a tree.
It’s only a concussion-induced delusion, but he rescues the beautiful outlaw from the gallows all the same.
When the delusions clear, and she’s still with him, he figures he’s either losing his mind, or else that amulet his archaeologist sister-in-law dug up has some kind of strange powers, after all.
Regardless of how she got from her time to his, Esmeralda Montoya claims the Texas Brand is rightfully hers.
His family want her gone. His sister Jessie would prefer to skin her alive. But all Elliot wants to do is kiss her, hold her, love her, and keep her in his world forever.
Jack's ex shows up out of the blue to ask for help with her dearly departed husband—who might not be so departed. Kiley—who didn't even know Jack had an ex, is determined to take the case from the rich widow, who is offering big bucks.
A weekend in paradise seems like a fun break to Maya, except that both Johnny, the guy she's stuck on, and Joe, the guy she's pretending to be stuck on, are coming too.
So the gang head to the private island mansion of the widow, where nothing is as it seems, and soon, they are cut off from civilization with no boat, no phone, and no help on the way, as a hurricane bears down on an island crawling with cultish killers who'll sacrifice anyone who tries to stop them from getting what they want. Immortality.
She does not believe in ghosts…
Kiley's made a name for herself with her column debunking new-age fortune tellers, mediums, and psychics. Her small New Englandish town is known for its hauntings, so the charlatans abound. Her nemesis eludes her…Jack McCain is the one she's never been able to trip up. He's the smoothest con of them all with his good looks, quick wit, natural charm. She even enjoys the game they're playing, her trying to trick him, him always a step ahead of her. They've become best enemies.
But something's wrong…
Now, something's going on with her house, a big old Gothic she bought for a song. It began with a death threat written in blood. At first, she figures it's one of the phonies she's exposed, out for revenge, but before long she has to admit there's something otherworldly happening. And she can't handle it on her own. She needs help. She needs a medium who's the real deal. She needs Jack McCain.
