Upcoming Publications

March 17

I’ve updated my schedule of what I expect to publish in 2018. Here goes….


APRIL 2018  — Title TBD (but nearly done). A m/m historical romance set in the old west. Riley Riverton is a rising star on the New York stage. But he witnesses a murder committed by a famous crime boss and is forced to go on the run–all the way to Santa Fe. When he still hasn’t ditched his pursuers, he disguises himself as a mail order bride he met on the wagon train. Caught between gangsters that want to kill him, and the crazy, uncouth family of his “intended”, Riley’s only ally is a lazy, gun-slinging sheriff who sees exactly who Riley is — and can’t resist him.

Summer 2018 — Howl at the Moon #5 (title TBD) – Probably featuring Simon the terrier. 🙂

Summer/Fall 2018 — Another book to be announced

Christmas 2018 — This year’s Christmas book will be part of a series with 7 other awesome authors. Each book will be stand-alone but have a common theme. Mine will have a historical setting. More info later!

Today is the cover reveal for “Tender Mercies”. It’s the second book in the Men of Lancaster County series (the first was “A Second Harvest”). This is a stand-alone book with a new couple, though it is set in the same area and features a cameo of David and Christie from book #1. 🙂 “Tender Mercies” features a young Amish man kicked out of his community for being gay and a man from New York who moves to Lancaster County to start a farm sanctuary.

You can see the cover and check out the blurb and an excerpt at Love Bytes (there’s also a giveaway):

“Five Dares” gets a starred review at Publisher’s Weekly

September 5

As an author who has been all over the board with various publishers and self-pubs, it’s very exciting to see one of my books reviewed in Publisher’s Weekly, much less get a starred review. But “Five Dares” (Riptide Publishing, Oct 2), did just that. I’m extremely happy and grateful for this!  Thanks to Riptide for helping this book get wider exposure.

You can read the review here.

Stay tuned for my traditional desktop post on release day!


Rav Miller looked into the terrified, intelligent eyes of the chocolate Labrador on death row, and knew he’d do anything to save him. When the dog, Sammy, escapes and heads to Mad Creek, Rav follows. Mad Creek. The town had become legendary in Rav’s mind after he’d met that bizarre group last year. Rav dismissed his crazy suspicions back then, but when he arrives in Mad Creek, he knows it’s true. Dog shifters exist, and apparently they all live in the California mountains. It’s enough to blow a bad boy’s mind.

Sammy has something in common with Rav—neither one of them trusts people. After Sammy’s abuse as a dog, he particularly dislikes tough-looking men like Rav. But when Sammy gets a chance to work with rescued dogs at the new Mad Creek shelter, his deep compulsion to help others overcomes his fear. Rav and Sammy bond over saving strays. If they can each find the courage to let someone else in, they might find their way to love.

Sheriff Lance Beaufort doesn’t like humans moving into Mad Creek, especially not the tattooed and defiant Rav. When Rav starts a rescue shelter, the town thinks he’s wonderful! But Lance isn’t fooled. He doesn’t buy Rav’s innocent act for one second. How much does Rav know about the quickened? What is his game? And why did he have to show up now, when Lance and the other town leaders are overwhelmed by all the new quickened pouring in?

Rav knows how to save a life. But can he save an entire town? Can he rescue Mad Creek?

This is an 80,000 word novel, book #4 in the “Howl at the Moon” series. It features a new couple and can be read as a standalone, but we recommend reading the series in order.





Cover Reveal: How to Save a Life (Howl #4)

August 3

Today I’m on Diverse Reader with a cover reveal for “How to Save a Life”, which is the fourth “Howl at the Moon” book. This series features a community of dog shifters in Mad Creek, California and the humans who love them. Each book features a different couple, but there’s a lot of community stuff, so it’s probably best to read them in order.

This book will be out by end of August!

I love humorous paranormals like Molly Harper’s werewolf shifter series. My “Howl at the Moon” series is written in that tongue-in-cheek style.

“How to Save a Life”, featuring the love story of Rav and Sammy, will be out at the end of August. You can see the cover reveal, read the blurb, and enter a giveaway to win any book on my backlist at the link below.



“Five Dares” cover reveal!

June 21

The cover reveal for “Five Dares” (Riptide, Oct 2, 2017) is now up with RT Book Reviews. CHECK OUT THE COVER HERE!

This is a New Adult m/m romance with two best friends who just graduated from college.  Here’s the blurb:

Andy Tyler has been the class daredevil since middle school. Over the years, he’s convinced his best friend, Jake Masterson, to perform some dangerous-looking stunts with him. But the dare they attempt on the night of their college graduation goes sideways. The firecrackers explode too soon and both of them end up with badly burned palms.

But hey, nothing gets the “terrible duo” down for long, and they recuperate in style at Andy’s family cottage in Nantucket. As the weeks go by, both Andy and Jake grow frustrated over the inability to use their hands for all sorts of daily activities—including getting off. So Andy begins a new series of dares that don’t just cross the friendship line, they obliterate it.

But what might be mere sexual relief to Andy is serious business to Jake, who only recently got over years of secret pining for his straight best friend. Inevitably, the burns heal, summer ends, and hearts are broken. To fix things, Andy will have to face the greatest dare of all.

If you liked my other NA romances like “Blame it on the Misteltoe” and “Unwrapping Hank”, you’ll love “Five Dares”.

You can pre-order here.
