Since childhood Angel Martinez has loved Harris Brightman, the son of her parents' friends. But now, as a grown woman, she must make a decision to go for what she wants or continue pleasing others.

About the author

My perfect day:  Laptop; WiFi availability; Java Mocha; characters demanding their stories be told; a plot that comes together; and hours to live in an alternate reality. Afterward, I return home to wash dishes and vacuum.

Seriously, I have always loved reading, and now I love writing. As a preteen, I devoured Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Mysteries, but when I reached my teens, the romance genre became my favorite and that has never changed. After years of procrastinating, I decided to try my hand at writing and I've been doing so with a passion ever since. I have written over twenty-five novels and novellas in the romance genres of fantasy, contemporary, contemporary western, and historical. Because I hate saying goodbye to characters who have lived with me for months, I usually create a series so they can be revisited from book to book.

I also have a YA novel titled Fragile Hearts under the pen name of Colleen Clay.

In 2014 I was honored to receive the gold medal from Readers' Favorite International Book Contest for Abby: Mail Order Bride in the historical romance category.

Is there somewhere that wishes come true?

When the bus Sunny Fairbanks is traveling on stops for a layover in the small seaside town of Somewhere, she decides to walk on the beach at sunrise—and falls in love with the area.

A young man jogging along the shoreline comes to her aid and she is forced to do something she hates—accept help.

Vicky Patterson continues to be amazed that her brother was able to send her a message from beyond the grave through her friends Faith Bennison and Baxter Hope. And that message has set her free from a lifetime of guilt. In fact, she's so free, that she takes on the task of heading up a group of protesters against Wainwright Resorts, the corporation that wants to purchase a portion of the town's public beach and build a world class resort that will, of course, destroy the quaintness of her community. She's angry with Michael Wainwright, III, and intent on stopping his plans.

Gabby Hope, a widow, and owner of Hope Bed & Breakfast, wants to get Leo Constanzo, a widower, out of her system, so she proposes something utterly inappropriate and is shocked when he agrees.

Belinda Hope, who died decades earlier, kept a diary that revealed the happenings behind her daughter's disappearance, and then her own, years later. Now that she's ready to step into the light of eternity, she needs to get a message to someone on the other side about where the diary is hidden.

Not intended to be read as a standalone.

ROTH: PROTECTOR
For over two thousand cycles of the sun, Roth Beowolf has completed missions as a Shapeling Protector. The successful completion of his current assignment will usher him into the rank of Shapeling Master. The Thirteen co-Princes have sent him to act as bodyguard to Rainey Childress, spoiled heiress and brilliant scientist. This decisive mission is turning into possibly his worst.

As the only child of Harold Childress, founder of Childress Enterprises, Rainey stands at the brink of an amazing discovery using frequencies to alleviate suffering. Because of her work and her heritage, bodyguards are a way of life; however, Roth Beowolf is turning into the bodyguard from hell...or is that heaven.

FAWN: MASTER
An unexpected promotion to the rank of Shapeling Master sends Fawn Woods on her first Mission of Mastery: nanny to an emotionally challenged child. Unknown to anyone but Fawn and the Thirteen co-Princes, Zoe Spencer is an Indigo child: the next stage in human evolution. To help Zoe, Fawn must first unravel the mystery surrounding her. Complicating matters, Fawn's heart is drawn to Zoe's widower father. Having a relationship with a human is something to be avoided at all costs.

A widower for two years, Wade Spencer goes through nannies like water. His daughter's new caregiver is certainly not the matronly type he'd expected. What had the employment agency been thinking to send such a breathtaking beauty to his cattle ranch? However, Wade's not too concerned about her sticking around. Zoe will probably drive her away before the day is over.

Seven year old Zoe doesn't want to cause trouble; she just wants the voices in her head to stop talking. When her daddy brings home the new nanny, she can't believe her eyes. Not only is the nanny beautiful, but the colors surrounding her are different from any she's ever seen. Who is this strange new lady?

DAVIDE: PRINCE
Since childhood, Davide Beowolf has been told that he is the fulfillment of prophesy--the Great Shapeling Prince. Early on, he decided the universe had made a mistake. How could he be the Prince when he has no shifting ability? For years he has wanted to confront the Thirteen co-Princes to convince them of their error, and when that opportunity is unexpectedly given, it is with a strange stipulation. He must first travel to Uluru in The Red Center of Australia and go on a walkabout with his childhood friend and confidant, Zoe Spencer. Only after completing their walkabout will his father reveal directions to the Cave of Thirteen. Unfortunately, Zoe has been avoiding him for two years.

Zoe just wants to get on with her life. After accepting the fact that Davide Beowolf will never view her as his soul mate and lover--always his older friend--she severed contact to preserve her heart. She'd already spent too much of her adulthood pining for him. However, while on tour with her symphony orchestra in Spain, Davide unexpectedly shows up with an incredible request: he wants her to accompany him to Australia and go on a walkabout!
