About this author

Killian McRae would tell you that she is a rather boring lass, an authoress whose characters’ lives are so much more exciting than her own. She would be right. Sadly, this sarcastic lexophile leads a rather mundane existence in the San Francisco Bay Area. She once dreamed of being the female Indiana Jones, and to that end she earned a degree in Middle Eastern History from the University of Michigan. However, when she learned that real archaeologist spend more time lovingly removing dust with toothbrushes from shards of pottery than outrunning intriguing villains with exotic accents, she decided to become a writer instead. She writes across many genres, including science fiction, fantasy, romance, and historical fiction.

It's hard to say if this was a good book or not. Was I entertained? Yes, and I suppose that's the point of romantic fiction. But I can't say, for certain, that it was a great book. Firstly, the heroine, Kacey, is very, very unlikable most of the book...more

Loved the first two books, but this one just kept treading water and not really getting anywhere nor developing any of the characters further in any significant way. I might pick it up again someday, but right now I just can't sustain interest. Also...more

“Booze makes brothers like no mothers ever do.”
Killian McRae, A Love by Any Measure

“Love doesn't keep to a schedule, and it doesn't respect your time. Sometimes it shows up a year too early, when you have other obligations. Sometimes it comes bumbling through the door to announce to you it had a sweet deal hooked up for you, but it got lost on the way over and now it's gone. And once in a while, and hopefully just once because that's all you really need it to, it shows up right on time, with a dozen roses, and a box of chocolates, just as you're pulling dinner from the oven.”
Killian McRae, Once You Go Demon

“Once you go demon, it's them that you're needin'.”
Killian McRae, Pure & Sinful
