Cool, Autumn nights lead to lingering heat, but can they solve a mystery in time?
Romance novelist and single-mother, Chloe Marshall, has never had a problem writing characters who fall in love and live happily-ever-after. That is until a severe case of writers-block cramps her style. Moving back to her hometown for a fresh start seems like just the ticket to get those creative juices flowing again—of course, running into her former classmate-turned-town-hunk, Graham Baxter, doesn’t hurt either.
When his work supplies start to go missing, Graham falls behind on the stage build for the fall festival, and Chloe steps in to lend the hunky contractor a hand. Things between them heat up as the autumn nights cool down, and Chloe and Graham soon find themselves wrapped up in a mystery that is more than it seems.

The moment the leader of the ghost hunting tour spots Zoe, he can’t take his eyes off her. Finding out she’s a skeptic and a scientist is a total turn on. When Travis McMann delves under the surface and learns more about her, the connections between their pasts are hard to ignore. After he realizes the explosion at her workplace wasn’t an accident, Travis vows to stick by her side to stop the dastardly plot which started the entire situation. It’s not going to be easy. The people they’re fighting will do anything to stop Zoe. Permanently.

Authors are Team Players Too
There are many quotes about writing being a solitary pursuit.
“Writing is one of the most solitary activities in the world.”
“Writing is a strange and solitary activity.”
“I am forever an advocate of books, both the reading of them and the writing. There is something sacred to me in that community. Because writing–and reading–is a solitary business. And it’s good to know I’m not alone.”
“It’s true that writing is a solitary occupation, but you would be surprised at how much companionship a group of imaginary characters can offer once you get to know them.”
While the actual writing and composing of a story is a solo effort, I like Shannon Celebi’s reference to the community of those who read and write. This is particularly true for the romance genre, where readers and authors actively engage and connect through events such as book signings and Facebook parties.
Romance authors also collaborate. This makes the journey much less solitary and a whole lot more fun!

This project is a 10-author holiday anthology called Christmas at Mistletoe Lodge. You can preorder a copy for just 99¢. The box set will include a brand new story from my Impossible Mission series–Mission: Impossible to Wed.

Curl up in a favorite chair and treat yourself to 10 wonderful holiday romances full of Christmas trees, jingle bells and mistletoe. The box set includes new romances from:

Cowboys, guitar chords, and a past full of crazy. If she’s not careful, Maggie’s old junk may wreck her new life.
PREQUEL- SHOCK JOCK (Available NOW)
Maggie’s star is on the rise but she’s down in the dumps.
The cowboy she loves, the one who inspired her blockbuster album, is out of her life. When she lands a guest spot on the hottest radio show in the country, a DJ with the squeaky clean image shows her he’s anything but. And after she’s sexually harassed on air, a heartbroken girl can’t be held responsible for her actions, can she?
LIVE WIRE (MAGGIE #1, Releasing March 6, 2019)
A hook-up turned lethal. A spurned, angry cowboy. Can rebel Maggie turn the tables before a killer adds her to the list of lost causes?
Washed-up alt-country rocker-turned-junker Maggie Killian is pulled to Wyoming by an irresistible force . . . former bull rider Hank Sibley, the man who broke her heart fifteen years before. When she unexpectedly meets his Sunday school-teaching girlfriend at a saloon, Maggie seeks liquor-fueled oblivion between the sheets of a younger man’s bed. But after her beloved vintage truck breaks down and leaves her stranded in the Cowboy State, she learns her hook-up died minutes after leaving their rendezvous. Suddenly surrounded by men with questionable motives, Maggie searches for the murderer while fighting the electricity between herself and her old beau, and her new penchant for local whiskey.
When the police zero in on Maggie despite a disturbing series of break-ins at her guest cabin, she realizes she’s got no one to rely on but herself. To keep herself happily in bars instead of behind them, she must stop the killer before the cops realize the man she really suspects is a jealous, angry Hank.

SICK PUPPY (MAGGIE #2, April 5, 2019)
Murder-by-fire. A catfishing squatter. Will Maggie get her life back before the killer claims the one thing she has left to lose?
Junker and former alt-country rocker Maggie Killian tucks tail back to Texas with Louise, the mutt her bull-riding ex foisted on her in Wyoming after he gave another woman his heart. Maggie runs straight to Gary Fuller—her long time best friend-with-benefits and the biggest Texas country music star since George Strait—but arrives too late to save him from dying in a fire. She just wants to lick her wounds in her own bed with nothing save a bottle for comfort, but Maggie’s short term renter refuses to budge from her home. Soon her small town sanctuary is overrun with Nashville bigwigs, Gary’s trailer park family, and grief-crazed fans feeding the fires of media speculation about the bodies in her wake.
With Maggie barely functional enough to fight back and law enforcement hell bent on scapegoating her, she begins to suspect Gary’s death wasn’t an isolated incident. To save her livelihood and sanity, she’s gotta woman-up before everything and everyone she loves goes up in flames, too.

A murdered ranch hand. An erratic lover. If she doesn’t uncover the killer, Maggie’s body may be next on the dead pile.
After Maggie Killian’s junker business goes into the shitter in Texas, the former alt-country rocker packs up her vintage truck and rescue mutt for Wyoming and a sexy reunion with her ex, Hank Sibley. When she discovers Hank’s foreman unceremoniously dumped on the ranch’s dead pile—the repository for deceased livestock—deputies look no further than the ranch for suspects, especially the young Amish hand, Andy, who received a battlefield promotion of sorts. Because the two have bonded over his guitar lessons, Maggie worries about Andy, even as she is struggling to resolve her suddenly resurrecting musical past, the demolished business in her present, and the complexity of a future with a lover who has suffered from traumatic brain injury since his bull riding days, his disapproving sister, and his Alzheimer’s-stricken mother.
When Andy is arrested and charged, Maggie refuses to believe he can be guilty. She’s willing to put it all on the line to defend him, until the evidence she digs up mounts against the one person she can’t afford to lose faith in.
