Sexy romance that’s passionate, heartwarming, and fun!
And here it is, September already. How did that happen?
As I head down the home stretch, finishing off Love Somebody Like You (Caribou Crossing Romance #6) which is due on October 1, I’m excited to now have ARCs of Love Me Tender (CCR #5, which will be released in December). These advance reader copies will soon be in the hands of reader groups and reviewers. Sure hope they like them! (If you have a review blog and are interested in reviewing a copy, let me know. I have PDF ARCs and some print ones to give away in exchange for an honest review.)
And – ta da! – I’m offering an ARC of Love Me Tender as the next opinion poll contest prize, to be awarded in mid-October.
I’m also gearing up to present some workshops. As a warm-up, I’m presenting “Writing Wild Mind: Freeing Your Creativity and Finding Your Voice” to the Vancouver Island Chapter of Romance Writers of America on October 4. And then on October 24 to 26, I’ll be at the Surrey International Writers Conference presenting two workshops, participating in a panel, doing “blue pencil” critiquing, participating in the book fair, and just generally mixing and mingling. I have links to both events on my Events page.
Volume 9 of Sweet Indulgences is now available. Will a seriously sprained ankle ruin Lia and Christopher’s holiday in Greece—or will it be the key to discovering that love is really “A Matter of Balance”? In “Finders Keepers,” the treasure at the end of the rainbow brings a very special man into the lives of single parent Marcy and her son.
Congratulations to my last opinion poll contest winner, Lois M from NJ, who won an autographed copy of her choice of my books and “pamper yourself” goodies from Galiano Island: a luxury soap bar and a menthol madness foot soak.
I hope Autumn 2014 brings wonderful things for you.

Having trouble finding my books?
If you can’t find my books in your "bricks and mortar" store, don’t forget, you can order online from a variety of sources. I’ve included purchase links for several stores, including Independent Booksellers. If a new book hasn’t been released yet, you can pre-order so it will be delivered immediately on release.
Every month I run an opinion poll contest. Answer this month’s question and your name will be entered for the chance to win a special prize. Check out the details on the Contest page.

Title 4 in the Caribou Crossing Romances series.
Dedicated RCMP Corporal Karen MacLean secretly longs for marriage and a home like the one she grew up in, but most men are intimidated by her uniform. Not much intimidates undercover cop Jamal Estevez, however. His only problem is believing—and proving—that a recovering alcoholic who’s never had a real home deserves the love of a woman like Karen.
Title 3 in the Dirty Girls Book Club series.
When Lily Nyland’s book club chooses an erotica novel featuring BDSM, the family practice doctor finds the subject problematic. A strong feminist, she believes in independence and equality between sex partners – and that’s exactly what she has with her helicopter bush pilot husband Dax Xavier. What they don’t have is time together, true intimacy, communication, and a deep level of trust. In fact, their marriage is in serious trouble. When Dax, home for Christmas, starts spicing up their sex life with naughty tricks he’s borrowed from her book, she’s shocked to find herself turned on. Can passion and kinky sex trigger the kind of intimacy and communication that will help Lily and Dax determine whether they still love each other and whether their marriage is worth fighting for?
These sweet short stories are designed for the busy woman who deserves a few minutes of self-indulgence – on the bus or train to work, during coffee or lunch break, while waiting to pick the kids up, sitting in the doctor or dentist’s waiting room, sinking into a bubble bath before bed, or . . . well, I’m sure you get the picture.
