His mission was to betray her. He never meant to fall in love.

The ambitious young doctor, Dahlia James, makes the discovery of a lifetime. She doesn’t know it, but she’s stumbled onto one of the biggest secrets in all of history, the existence of shape shifters living among us. The bigger the secret, the bigger the risk. Dahlia draws the attention of two clashing groups of shifters, neither of which care if she lives or dies. She has no idea how much danger she’s in until she meets the sexy, mysterious Xander Sinclair.

Xander is an arrogant bear shifter on a mission to find Dahlia and destroy any evidence that shifters exist. Despite his orders, he can’t resist helping the beautiful woman when her life is threatened. Torn between protecting his people and his feelings for Dahlia, Xander is faced with the hardest decision of his life.

Betray the woman he loves or turn his back on everything he’s ever known.

A full novel-length romance with a HEA and NO cliffhanger, Betrayed by the Bear is the third book in the sizzling Haven Series and can be read as a stand-alone book or in order.

I Want You to be Happy

heart-love-glossy-valentine-romance-romanticAfter years of fits and starts and shoving the idea to the back of mind as I waited for that elusive “right time”, I started writing romance novels full time a few years ago. And of course, when I did, friends and family asked “why romance novels?”

It’s a long and convoluted answer that would take a few hours and several bottles of wine to answer.

A more important question could be “what does reading romance novels do for me?” I admit, I am a voracious reader and I still love romance novels. The queens of my world are descended from Rosemary Rogers, Kathleen Woodiwiss, and Bertrice Small. Ah, the good old fashioned bodice ripper with Fabio on the cover! And trying to hide the cover of the book you were reading in order to fend off uncomfortable discussions.

Things are a bit different now. Electronic readers have done away with the need to hide, bodice rippers on the covers have become ripped bods, and there is a veritable plethora of sub-genre romance readings from which to choose.

But did you know there are benefits to reading what I’m laying down? Oh, yes indeed.

According to Glenn Croston Ph.D. of Psychology Today, reading romance novels can make you happy. Dr. Croston writes “Stories like this can be reassuring, and train our mind to have positive expectations.  And when we have positive expectations about the world, we tend to be happier.”

So, read a romance novel. Or three, or three dozen. After all, I want you to be happy.

Have you signed up for my newsletter? The first one makes the rounds next week and there will be all kinds of goodies in it. Be happy, lovelies!

With the arrival of a gorgeous human in Whiskey Springs, his problems have multiplied overnight. Every day brings another challenge centered around her presence in his town.
