Contemporary Romance Volume One
My sexy contemp. Go buy it. Seriously. This is both fun and sexy. Loved re-writing!
Registered nurse Maggie is done with men. Flying to Minneapolis to celebrate her sister’s engagement, she’s seated beside the type of man she always falls for. A sexy, arrogant alpha jerk.
Dr. Mace Williams irritates the woman next to him. She’s so damn sexy, he doesn’t care. When their seatmate suffers a cardiac arrest, Maggie and Mace team up to save his life, but despite their stellar teamwork it’s too late. Mace makes an unscheduled stop to meet with the man’s family while Maggie continues her journey.
In Minneapolis, Maggie heads to a restaurant with her sister, only to find Mace waiting. Worse, she learns he’s the brother of her sister’s fiance. But still, he is a sexy beast. Stuck in her sister’s apartment with Mace, Maggie offers him one night of sex, anything goes. No obligations, no recriminations.
Mace agrees…he wants more than Maggie’s body, he wants her heart.
Thrown into a disastrous canoe trip, they must once again work together, but this time it’s their own survival at stake. Maggie must face her demons and trust Mace with her life. Mace is determined to save her, regardless of what the future brings.

It’s almost here. A collection of foodie sweet, semi-sweet, spicy and extra-spicy romantic tales. Check it out. Here’s the link:
Everyone participating in this collection is so different, so cool, such excellent writers! A great bunch of female foodie and wine-y authors. Each one of us is different, each perspective and style, unique. These stories are fun. I recommend you reserved your copy ASAP.
Gimme Some Sugar, Stephanie Berget~Pastry Chef, Cary Crockett, is more at home with city life, cupcakes and croissants than beef, beans and bacon, but she has to convince ranch owner Micah West she’s up to the job of feeding his hired hands. The camp cook on Micah West’s central Oregon ranch has up and quit without notice and his crew of hungry cowboys is about to mutiny. Maintaining a hands-off policy toward his sexy new cook becomes tougher than managing a herd of disgruntled wranglers. Spicy.
A Matter of Taste, J.R. Barrett~How to Make the perfect man: Once cup of mystery, one cup of tall, one cup of dark, one cup of sexy. Joy is thrilled to inherit her grandmother’s handwritten recipe book. There’s magic between those covers. She just doesn’t know how much magic, and which covers… Spicy.
Queen of Diamonds, Sandra Cox~Logan Hunter is a bestselling author with a penchant for the ladies. Kendall Theron, his efficient publicist, is prim and colorless- at least on the surface. Beneath the proper facade is a woman who will do anything to protect her family…even if it’s not quite legal. Sweet.
Anything You Want, Tina Donahue~With the big three-O only days away, Jamie has had it with dieting, exercises and being alone. Off she goes to Wicked Desires, a decadent Caribbean resort where clothing is optional but carnal and physical appetites rule. Her desires are perfectly in tune with two Alpha billionaires, Creed and Tav, determined to show Jamie a good time, complete with all the food she craves and a wicked touch of BDSM. Extra-spicy.
Hard Copy, Amity Grays~Aubrae Sloan is paying the piper-a handsome business tycoon she has unintentionally libeled. The cost? She must pose as his fiancee and accompany him to a vineyard in Southern Idaho. The plan is to avoid a lawsuit by helping him win back the land her rather scathing article has cost him. Semi-sweet.
100 Kisses, JW Manus~When baker Molly Larsen accidentally poisons the grandmother of scary, sexy billionaire Blake Connor, he demands she make amends. He wants his pound of flesh in the form of 100 kisses. His terms are any time, anywhere, and Molly cannot refuse Blake- or else. Sweet.
Will be offline for a few weeks in early September.
For the time being all my books are available on Amazon exclusively. Nothing personal. This is a financial decision, but it is not set in stone. I will be evaluating the situation daily.
One of these days I shall get around to telling the my story. In the meantime, keep writing. It’s food for the soul.
Here’s what my twitter bio says: (It really says this, I wrote it myself.)
Iowan.Writer of smart genre fiction. A lover of all things syfy, fantasy, GSDs. A Jewish hero or heroine in all my work. Author of the award-winning Captured.
Even if it is unstated, all my heroines are Jewish – from Mari in Captured, to Cara in Come Back to Me, to Eva in Beauty and the Feast, to Sara in Incorporeal, to Dr. Meera Driver in my fun Vixen comics. All of them.
1. I may be a mix of things, but I’m Jewish. My world view was and is shaped by my Jewish roots, my Jewish family, my Jewish experiences, my Jewish education, the study of the Hebrew language and the Hebrew Bible, along with the New Testament (Hey, Jesus was a total Jew.), and my obsession with the study of history and religions.
2. I hate TSTL heroines. Hate ’em with a grand passion.
3. Every heroine I write is an aspect of me. Thus she/they is/are Jewish. And I’ve thrown some Jewish heroes into the stories for good measure.
4. Jewish women are hot. Get used to it. Sexy does not negate smart. Neither does smart negate sexy. Smart IS sexy.
5. I ain’t gonna hide what I am. I’m proud to be Jewish. I’m proud of what I write. I write what I want. And what I want is to write books about competent, complex, canny Jewish women.
Read my books. You will like them.
