THREE STRONG, DOMINANT ALPHA'S DEFY FATE TO RESCUE AND CLAIM THEIR CHOSEN MATE.
The McCullough's family history taught them never to trust exposing their shifter heritage by accepting a human mate, but fate didn't care about past mistakes. In the Cowboy Wolf Trilogy, Gavin, Cody, and Drake will meet the one woman meant to complete them in every way, and once they discover she's human, will have to decide if she is worth the risk to their family.
In books one and two, fate plays cruel tricks on both Gavin and Cody, forcing them to walk away from their human mates. Each will get a second chance to claim the one woman meant to complete them, but will they do so in time to save them from the threats of others? In book three, Drake's demons keep him from succumbing to his mate. When he learns others are a bigger risk to her safety than his nightmares, will he overcome them before it is too late?
Along the lines of my bestselling Cowboy Doms series, this new Cowboy Wolf Trilogy is filled with romance, suspense, heart-tugging emotion, and steamy scenes with sexy cowboys who will melt your heart.

When the unexpected happens just weeks before Christmas, can a stranger make everything right?
After waiting three long months for this moment, Cait Walker was finally in London---excited and nervous and even a little scared. What if she didn't measure up to Derek's expectations?
She glanced down at her phone. And...there he was, in that first glorious email. Charming and dashing and handsome, they'd met through an online dating site. He'd been emailing her for months now, and they'd even talked on the phone twice. And oh, that lovely accent and deep voice...Downton Abbey and Jane Austen's heroes, all wrapped in one delicious package and tied with a perfect bow. She shivered with anticipation, knowing that her life was about to change in ways she'd never even dreamed of. But wisdom sometimes comes too late...

My new contemporary romance, CHRISTMAS DEADLINE, launches in time for the holiday season. And what a busy time this will be. Join me for Writerspace's Halloween Mash October 30. Then on November 5 I'll host a launch party on Writerspace's Facebook page, where I'll give away Christmas ornaments, copies of CHRISTMAS DEADLINE and my 2019 holiday time travel romance, CHRISTMAS KNIGHT.

In CHRISTMAS DEADLINE Seattle romance writer, Holly Lane, and English nobleman/mystery writer, Noel Atteberry, are struggling to finish the novel they're co-authoring. Holly wants a happily-ever-after ending. Noel wants the story to end James-Bond-style, with an fiery explosion. Will their story, and their budding romance, have a happy ending?
Please check out CHRISTMAS DEADLINE and join me during the Writerspace events. And don't miss the CHRISTMAS DEADLINE trailer, which perfectly captures the kind of read you'll find in my new book!
