Welcome to my shiny new website!  I hope you find it as pretty as I do.  Although some pages are still under construction, I've added a new FAQS page where I've answered the most often asked questions from readers.   
This is an exciting time for me because I've expanded my New York Times bestselling Shelter Bay series to River's Bend
Oregon's most western town where spurs have a job to do and cowboy hats aren't just a fashion accessory.  Set in southern Oregon ranching country where my high school sweetheart husband and I grew up, River's Bend is where you'll meet Sheriff Cooper Murphy, the first of three sexy Murphy brothers. It's currently available on Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Smashwords, and in print form from Amazon. iTunes still to come, and fun news for people who like to listen to their books, it'll also be available in audio later this summer! 

In late May/early June, I'm returning to Castlelough, Ireland, home to my award-winning Irish trilogy (A Woman's Heart, Fair Haven, and Legends Lake), with a novella: Briarwood Cottage, which begins in Shelter Bay and features Sedona Sullivan's cousin, Cassandra Carpenter.  

Then this summer, Take the Cake's Sedona Sullivan FINALLY gets her story and happily-ever-after in A Sea Change, set in both Shelter Bay and Castlelough, where she meets hot Irish musician Conn Brennan, who'll rock her world! A Sea Change will also be available in audio.

And yes, to all who've written to ask, there will be more Shelter Bay books! The easiest way to keep up with all the changing news and pub dates is to subscribe to my newsletter, which often includes contest and giveaways.  You can also find advance information about Briarwood Cottage and A Sea Change on the Coming Soon page. 

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous spring!
