Whether I'm writing historical or contemporary romances, I always try to educate my readers and teach them something they may not have known before.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy doing anything artsy, collecting Native American pottery, and indulging in my one true obsession - shoe shopping!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm used to reading Delaney Diamond's sweeter romances, so this was a departure for me. Her style in this book is a bit grittier. This story was well thought-out with amazing characters and off-the-chain sex scenes. Ja ...more

Resolutions by Teri Riggs

Exciting. Action-packed. Sexy.

This was a great story. It reminded me of Angelina Jolie in SALT and Russell Blake's JET character.

I love reading about tough women who also have a vulnerability about them. I downloaded the sample for Resolutions, and a
