“5 Stars Horsewhisperer Series a Hit!”

5 Stars! “Shane by Carol Devine is a Brilliant Testament to the Strength of a Woman’s Spirit and the Power of Love...” Stella Knights

4.5 Stars! “In these pages, Carol Devine brings to life one couples inspiring way of navigating those rocky shoals, made all the more realistic and accessible in that they do so in less than perfect but all too human ways that left me with tears rolling down my face and a paradoxically aching and joyful heart.” - Charles C. McCormack

The mystery is, why they keep coming after me. It's been two years since they started complaining and though I've won every round, including after they enlisted the help of an outside management group, it's clear they think they are in the right. Every good book has to have a conflict but sometimes those in real life are stranger than fiction.(less)

My first book, BEAUTY AND THE BEASTMASTER, is a spin-off of a famous fairytale. But the roots were with the pro-wrestlers of the '90's: Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) who were like my hero, Bram Masterson.(less)

Tippi Hedren (yes, the movie star of Hitchcock's The Birds fame) founded a big cat animal rescue sanctuary in 1972, called the Shambala Preserve. I discovered this when I was doing research for one of my novels. The hero was a Pro Wrestler known as the Beastmaster, w Read more of this blog post »

“You are speaking of something sacred, something holy. Love is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast. It casts out pride, selfishness and anger. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres and never fails.”
Carol Devine, A Man of the Land

“You think I'll succumb after a ten second kiss?"

The man had an ego of an elephant. She measured the knowing curve of his smile, the infuriating glint in his eyes and knew she could stand anything for ten seconds. All she had to do was clamp her jaw and she'd win. Victory was at hand.

"Okay, Masterson. You're on.”
Carol Devine, Beauty & the Beastmaster

“Shane, how many ways must I say it? I don't want to be introduced as your girlfriend, especially in front of your family."
"I'll call you Tonto, my sidekick. You can pretend I hired you for the event to provide security."
"You're the one with Native American blood, not me."
"Oh, now I get it. You want to muscle in on my territory and play the Lone Ranger role. Sorry, Doc. That takes horsemanship skills of which you have none. Now, if you'd let me take you on a trail ride or two, get you up to snuff, I might consider it.”

Carol Devine It's nice to meet you, too, Jolake. This weekend my family is celebrating the memory of my father, who served our country as a Navy Seaman in the Pacific during WW II. Hope you and yours are doing well.


Jolake Bivins It's a pleasure to meet you, Carol! I hope you are enjoying the weekend!
