Texas Kisses

Clean Romance, Clean Romance on Amazon, Clean Romance on Kindle Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited,


Writing my Texas Kisses is wonderful fun. They’re short stories (one hour reads), and offer sweet, clean romance on Amazon — free for those subscribed to Kindle Unlimited.

Joy House will be out in July, and Fall Into His Kiss is planned for August. Watch this space for more information on both.

Kiss Me, Quick  — some debts can’t be paid with chicken noodle soup.

First Kiss — if you paint a cowboy’s horse pink, be prepared to face the consequences!

Summer Kiss — fishing at midnight, the new sheriff catches more than he’d dreamed of.

New Release: Summer Kiss

I’m excited to share my newest Texas Kiss with you. Summer Kiss is live! and for this weekend only, it’s also FREE! So grab it now on Amazon (or Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, or Amazon Australia).


Freedom! For the last eleven years, schoolteacher Tessa Fraser has been raising her much younger brother with the help of their grandmother. Now her brother is eighteen, headed for college, and Tessa is finally free to indulge her adventurous spirit. Only, Sheriff Caleb Gascoyne has other ideas.

Fishing at midnight, Caleb never thought he’d catch the woman of his dreams, but Tessa is sweet, funny and sparkling with the joys of summer. She’s a world away from his old life when he served his country on secret missions overseas. But she wants freedom, and he’s just settled back into Gascoyne Junction.

Tessa knows Caleb is used to far more sophisticated women than her. She’s spent her whole life in the Texas Hill Country, while he’s travelled the world. Never has she regretted her lack of sophistication so much as when confronted by an honorable, old-fashioned cowboy-sheriff who just won’t be tempted into a midnight kiss.

For fans of first kisses and gorgeous Texas cowboys.


General Catch Up

Sorry, but this post rambles — look away, now! 😉

The calendar in my study is scrawled with release dates and promotional plans, so obviously I’m aware what month it is. I even know what day it is *glances swiftly at the date in the corner of the computer screen* but somehow it hadn’t dawned on me that I was half-way through April! Well into the SECOND quarter of the year. Where did March go? Heck, where did February scamper off to?

I think that says something about how busy I am. The insomnia says something about that, too — but I just bought a yummy herbal tea to deal with the sleep-eating gremlins! There’s lavender in the mix, which I thought odd, but actually tastes lovely.

I have a new release out April 23. I wrote Empty a while ago, but couldn’t find a home for it — not that I really looked. A short novella about strained family ties rather than romance is a huge step into the unknown for me.


But May brings me back to familiar ground with Escape Publishing bundling my coastal romances into one book. Love, Coast To Coast has me really excited. I hope lots of readers discover that short stories have all the emotional punch of longer works.


Meantime, I’m finishing another sweet western romance. I’ve fallen in love with writing them. My dad was a huge western movies fan when I was a kid, so I absorbed a love for Texas that has belatedly burst out! Does anyone else remember the Lucky Luke movies? It amused me no end when the star of those, Terence Hill, became the murder mystery solving priest in Don Matteo.

I’m also plotting a full length book, which is a total secret. Writing it is going to utterly absorb me. It’s such an interesting concept. So I need to clear two months to focus on it; hence the mad activity, now.

Plus, throughout the year I’ve been testing and thinking about promotional activities. So many of the things people tell you to do don’t work — or at least, not for me. Amazon’s algorithms continue to obsess me (and I’m drawing other people into that web of obsession — it’s scary! 😉 ).

So, that’s me. Life blurs past and I promise myself it’ll all be worth it when THE BOOK is written. Until then, if you need my attention, it’s best to shout loudly!

How’s 2015 for you?

New Release: No Rescue

My final Coast-to-Coast romance novella is out today! No Rescue is hot and the setting is even hotter! Sydney Harbour.

She went to Sydney to hide, instead she was found by love.

Recovering from a tragic hostage situation, Miri Blair escapes to Sydney, and the anonymity of a friend’s apartment. She will go back into the world – just not yet.

Then, one day, she finds herself acting out a Romeo-and-Juliet balcony style scene with Sergeant Tad Robertson of the Water Police, who dares her to risk living again. With the harbour as a backdrop, Tad and Miri find romance by the sea, but Tad has a dangerous job and Miri has been through trauma. Will she have the strength to move away from her past and towards a future with Tad?

“First Kiss” is out & FREE!

kindle unlimited, sweet western romance,

My new sweet Western romance, First Kiss, is out! Whew. This was a wonderful story to write, but sometimes I think that the closer a story is to my heart, the more nervous I am about it. To celebrate its release, First Kiss is free for the weekend (20-22 March). I hope you enjoy it!

If you paint a man’s horse pink, be prepared to face the consequences!

Alissa McLeod wants Craig Murchison’s attention. She wants him to see her as a woman, and not as his best friend’s little sister. But when Craig ignores her prettiest dresses, her shy flirtation and her award-winning chocolate raspberry cake, then there’s only one thing for it—she’s going to have to turn this Texas cowboy’s world upside down until he realises the one thing he needs is right in front of him: her.

For fans of first kisses, sparkling romance, ex-soldier heroes, and shy women who find the courage to risk everything for the men they love.

“First Kiss” is a short story, a 45 minute read.
