I started it Black Friday and finished the first draft by Sunday morning.

Release Day! Once Her Man, Always Her Man Available

I can’t tell you how excited I am about the release of the first of my Always a Marine series from Decadent Publishing. Originally conceived as a tale of first loves found again and the extraordinary service of ordinary men and women in the Marines, the series grew very close to my heart.  First up are Luke Dexter and his first love, Rebecca Ranier, the girl he left behind.  The heroine is named for two of my favorite authors (and people) Rebecca Royce and Heather Rainier.  Can a 1 Night Stand really repair a decade long estrangement? Every reunion must […]
