Marie Johnston is an award-winning, best-selling paranormal and contemporary romance writer. She grew up in the upper Midwest and planned to go to college for English. Didn't happen. She started college in accounting and was awful! Grabbing her inner science geek by the pocket protector, she changed to microbiology and medical technology where her only writing involved scientific articles and procedures.
Eventually, she left full-time work for full-time baby raising but kept thinking, "one day, I'd like to write a book." Finally, before any more time passed, Marie decided to buckle down and write. She loves it!

There's another spin-off, Pale Moonlight, that will follow shifters. A hybrid may pop in for one of the later books - especially Ronnie ;) He needs a happily-ever-after. The first book, Birthright, is about Jace's sister, Maggie. I'm writing book, Ancient Ties (to release Jan 2017) and that's Kaitlyn's story. Thank you for the question!(less)

I'm fairly new to the GR community, so I'm not familiar with the "series by" listing. I'll have to look into it. Rebound and Shooter are not Sigma books, but Fleet Week Romances and are meant to be independent reads.
My best guess at why only two of the four Sigma book have a designation depends on what version was linked to my name. Only a guess. I just know that sometimes I have two versions of a book - one from Smashwords and one from...not sure where it comes from. Since there's another Marie Johnston author out there, the GR Librarians need to link my books to my profile for me.
Thanks!

I finally get to show this off!

Picture Coming October 1st
  Conflict of Interest has been an emotional roller coaster since I conceived the idea of a Midwest farmers series. The problem was that I wanted to explore the what-if: What if these two were meant to be together, but this was how they met?  Take a peek at the blurb:

I lost the whole weekend to this book. Enjoyable read, nice blend of drama, lightness, and heat. My only minor issue is Duane constantly pulling away after he’s yearned for her for so long.

“You mean like, if a hybrid drinks from a shifter in the middle of the woods, did it really happen?"
He moved closer until he was peering down at her. "What happens in the woods, stays in the woods.”
Marie Johnston, Lawful Claim

“She walked confidently next to him. Her black hair was slicked down and tucked behind her ear. "To better fight Guardians with, my pretty," she had told him earlier that morning.”
Marie Johnston, Pure Claim

“In your face, E! X totally won that bet. The dark madame left the room to let X continue to bleed out. X had one other thought beyond destroying the female. Where the hell did she get those sweet shoes?”
Marie Johnston, Pure Claim
