Once upon a time, there were romance novels.
Soon, there will be something new from me. Fantasy of the more magical sort.
But for now, try a love story or two.

Back to the romances:
It’s Christmas in Manhattan…
…and Paisley Vandermeir has a scandalous scheme to set herself free from society’s expectations once and for all.
Enter Christopher Quincy Maitland, the blond and gorgeous Rock of Gibraltar who carries the weight of his family’s fortune on his shoulders–safe, dependable, scandal proof.
Or is he?
When irresistible force meets immovable object, what happens next is SCANDALOUS.
Are you ready for some football?
Then you’re ready for…
Kevyn Llewellyn needs a god.
She must have exactly the right model for Darius: Warrior-God of the Gray Planet, or she’ll lose the contract to illustrate the rest of the series. When she sees him—none other than NFL football player Rusty Rivers—she does the absolutely logical thing: she kidnaps him. Or rescues him… it depends on whom you’re asking.
Rusty Rivers is no god.
He’s the kind of guy who’s squandered every opportunity from the Redskins to the Cardinals, while Kevyn’s had to fight for every chance to prove herself as a cover artist for fantasy novels. His struggles have been broadcast across the sports pages, while she keeps hers buried deep. They’re as different as meteor and moonbeam, with nothing apparent in common.
In this doomed, yet enchanted, football season, dare they hope something magical can happen that will last forever?
Once there was a woman who was so desperate to escape, she held a cold-blooded killer at gunpoint and said, “Take me with you.”
That’s all I knew. I didn’t know who she was, what she was escaping from, but I knew her desperation, tasted it, felt it, lived with it until I found her world and her story and a way to tell it.
No matter how many stories I later told in novels and scripts, the lady and the outlaw, the deputy and the prostitute, the sheriff and the reporter never loosened their grip on me.
These were the people whose passions and pains launched my career in publishing and in screenwriting and whose story would not die.
From Book View Cafe… the book that began my writing journey returns.
