COLLECTIONS Single Dads

Single Dads consists of two of my all-time favorite novels.  Both have been great selling books for years it is an annual favorite at Father’s Day time.  These are both romantic comedies because any time you have a child in the mix, things seem to quickly get out of control.  The three boys in Count Your Blessings are actually based on my own three sons, Greg, Adam and Scott.  It was a lot of fun to write their characters. Teacher’s Pet is one of those special books that, even though I wrote it and know what’s going to happen, it still makes me laugh and cry.  I wish I had a daughter like Whitney.  There’s also a bit of a character crossover from Angel of Mercy.  I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS – Luke Calloway is a turkey farmer in the heartland of Iowa. He has survived the loss of his wife, and is learning to cope with a drastic change of career (from big city dentist to the owner of Wishbone Acres in the small town of Greenhaven) while raising three rambunctious sons.  He’s doing an admirable job and isn’t looking for love.  But that’s exactly what he finds when Darcy Carson returns to town.

Darcy Carson, a successful Los Angeles television reporter, had fled from Iowa as soon as she was able.  Small towns held no appeal for her, but the glamour and excitement of Southern California certainly did following a suspension by the station where she’s employed, she returns home, telling herself that she’ll only stay until she wins her court case and can return to work.

But Darcy hasn’t planned on meeting Luke.  She fights her attraction to him, telling herself he represents everything she ran away from.  Luke, too, fights his growing love for Darcy.  He knows he’s only a temporary stopover in her life,  that soon she’ll return to California, breaking his heart, and those of his sons.

Neither Luke nor Darcy are prepared for the way love sweeps into their lives, changing everything.

TEACHER’S PET – When five-year-old Whitney Sloane took a shine to her kindergarten teacher, Miss Greene, it spelled trouble for her handsome dad.

Whitney thought Allison Greene would make a great mom. she had only one problem…getting her lonely dad and her lovely teacher together.

Justin Sloane couldn’t understand why his once perfect daughter had cut off another girl’s braid or why she had put Mr. Wiggly Nose and Snow White, the classroom rabbits, into the same cage so that they made little bunnies while the whole class watched in fascination…until he met Whitney’s idol at the PTA. Suddenly life became wonderfully frustrating for this single father.

How could Justin make the grade with the delightful Miss Greene when she wouldn’t dream of breaking the rules and dating a student’s parent?

TEACHER’S PET, originally titled GOOD MORNING, MISS GREENE appeared on the Waldenbooks Bestseller List.

Romance Collections Three and Four

Dear readers,

Wine flights, also sometimes referred to as tasting flights, are tastings of multiple wines, which allow tasters to get a feel for breadth or depth. They are usually intended for those new to the experience of tasting wine, or those who want to increase their understanding of a specific region, vintage, or varietal.

A romance collection is very similar but with added advantages. It includes either two or three romance novels but not just a taste. They are full length unabridged romance novels that allow the reader to get a feel for the breadth and depth of the author in a singular sub-genre or type of story.

Today two Collections are being released. Pregnant and Alone and Single Dad’s. A great romance novel isn’t just about the sex and not everything in life is pretty, free or easy.

Pregnant and Alone consists of two of my all-time best-selling novels. In both books, the heroines find out they are pregnant. Neither are married, but both are delighted at the prospect of becoming mothers. Their circumstances are very different, but each is faced with the complications of adding the father back into their lives. Caution: these books are emotionally charged. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry along with Lauren and Jessica. They will touch your heart forever.

Romance Collection for Best Of The West

Hello again past, present and future readers,

As I mentioned in my earlier blog, in 2012 I made 21 of my 23 novels previously published through several mainstream publishing houses available on Amazon.com. In late 2012 I began to publish my suspense and young adult fiction as an Indie author. And while my career has taken a turn from romance to suspense and time travel mysteries I have decided to also take the time and effort to answer both an old and new reader request, making the books available as several collections.Earlier today I was pleased to announce that I am taking the 21 novels and grouping them in a collection of books. I believe this is a good solution to reader queries and requests.

The books are being separated into 9 different collections of similar sub-genres and reader interest. Remember these are the original full length unabridged books. All of the collections of either two or three books each, are published direct to the reader at a price that will save them money. It is the start of the summer reading season so enjoy!

This morning it was Men In Uniform and now here is a brief blurb for the second romance collection, Best Of The West.

COLLECTIONS Best Of The West

Many fans have requested that I offer boxed sets of my romance novels, so I have grouped them into categories that share themes.  This one I’ve titled Best of the West because the two novels take place in the modern-day Wild West states of Colorado and Montana.  Goodbye Desperado and Cody’s Last Stand were two of my favorites, partly because they both have lots of horses, but mostly because the two heroes are super-sexy macho studs.  For those of you who love sensual, but emotional love stories, I think you’ll enjoy spending some time with Matt Montana and John Cody.

What do you do when the choice you made was the wrong one?  During the war, Jeff Hawkins’s tenderness had been nurse Angela’s sanctuary from the horrors of Vietnam, and his passion had been their salvation. But Jeff had been wounded long before a bullet brought him to the EVAC hospital.  Fearless, with nothing to lose, Jeff was the kind of soldier to whom they awarded Purple Hearts . . . posthumously.  Years later, when he encountered Angela again at a veterans’ reunion, she could no longer pretend that the madness of war had triggered their brief, all-consuming alliance.  Could they have a second chance?  Or had she forfeited any claim to Jeff’s love when she did the unforgivable . . . married his best friend?  Not all wounds are visible . . . and not all wounds can be healed by the soft touch of a nurse’s hands.  But Angela knew he was worth fighting for . . . and Jeff was tired of fighting.

Book #2, BRB [Be Right Back]
BRB eBook Cover 2

“It’s difficult to investigate a crime that hasn’t happened yet.”

Kelly, Scott, Austin and Zoey have just returned from changing a girl’s life in 1966 and are a little battered and bruised from their adventure. But when a small voice pleads for their help to save her family from a murderer, they know they must respond.
They research the story, but there is very little information to be found. All they know is that it takes place on Crystal Key, a small private island off the Florida Keys. Since it appears to be deserted, they decide to pop in, gather clues, then pop back. It was a good excuse to spend a lazy day on a beautiful beach.
But from the first step, their journey back to 1980 goes horribly wrong. The area is crawling with drug traffickers and tens of thousands of refugees fleeing Cuba. They meet the young girl and her family, but their intervention puts them in the direct path of the killer.
Can they find out who he is in time to save the girl, her family . . . and themselves? Or are they destined to be a madman’s latest victims?
