I write steamy paranormal romances and wickedly fun romantic adventures, stories that crackle with action and love. Challenging, smart alpha men—and women not afraid of a challenge. Oh, do the sparks fly when he meets THE woman guaranteed to infuriate and inflame him most.

In real life I'm a USA Today bestselling author, a spouse and mother, a flutist, a computer geek, and a binge-TV-watcher of The Flash, Elementary, NCIS, and Wynonna Earp.

I'd love to hear from you!

I just double checked and Bad Boy Billionaire's Lady (Lovless Brothers) has no graphic sex. Also, while my upcoming Playing With Fire: The Battle of the Bands (A Starstruck Novella) has a physical culmination of love, it's only a couple paragraphs of metaphor. Hope that helps! ~Mary(less)

Hi Goodreads! My favorite fictional couple...does anyone have just one? lol.

Of the couples I've written, one of my favorites has to be Julian and Nixie, because they're so utterly different (tall austere powerful lawyer vampire, tiny punk rock mouthy human musician), yet they find a special shared wavelength.

Of those I've read, top of the list is Amelia Peabody and Radcliffe Emerson. Next is Harry Dresden and Karrin Murphy, though I'm not sure they'll get their HEA. And what is happening with Bob Howard and Mo O'Brien in the Laundry Files? *bites nails* Favorite partners include Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin and Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Television's Phryne Fisher and Jack Robinson are amazing.

I have tons more favorites, but these are the first to come to mind.(less)

Just when you think you have gotten the hang of hitting a ball with a bat, life introduces curve balls.

I've had a couple things happen that will require me to adjust how I spend my time. I'll still be writing, don't worry! And my focus will be on finishing my three series.

Of which, Night's Kiss is on its last read-through before sending off to the editor. Hooray!

But that's another curve ball. A... Read more of this blog post »

“I won't bite."
"Are you sure?" My voice was rough.
"I won't bite right now," he said with a ghost of a smile.
The soft expression bemused me enough so that the gentle patting lured me to the recliner. Logan wrapped strong arms around me and pulled me into his lap.
My butt fit him like we were interlocking puzzle pieces.”
