Kristine Raymond didn’t figure out what she wanted to be when she grew up until later in life. You guessed it! It’s being an author. Since writing and publishing her first book in 2013, she’s gone on to complete two romance series – one historical western and one contemporary; a humorous non-fiction story; a collection of seasonally-themed short stories; and a contemporary erotic drama. She also hosts a podcast called Word Play with Kristine Raymond.

When not writing, she’s navigating the publishing and promotional side of the business. When not doing that, she enjoys spending time with her husband and furry family, reading, gardening, and binge-watching shows on Netflix.

Rediscovering Myself

I never intended to take a year off from writing.  It wasn't a calculated decision; documented in a planner or calendar.  In fact, for the first nine months of my unplanned sabbatical, I chastised myself daily for NOT writing.  I felt guilty and ashamed; that I was letting not only myself down but also those who believed in me.  Oh, I dabbled here and there with my WIP.  Stared at the screen for h Read more of this blog post »

"I want to live in Port New

I loved this book! It was well-written and edited (which is always a plus). It was very descriptive in describing the town, people and what was happening. I want to live in Port New! I loved Finn's humor and quirkiness. " Read more of this review »

“Sam dropped by to see Kate and she’s too busy working to give him the time of day.” “Now, wait just a minute!” Kate sputtered. “Mr. Mackenzie didn’t say anything about coming by to see me. In fact, he hasn’t said why he’s here.” “It’s Sam. And as a matter of fact, I did drop by to see you. I thought that maybe you would like to take a ride with me. I know that you have been working really hard lately and thought you might enjoy some time to relax. I had Lawrence Westerbrook make up some sandwiches for a picnic lunch. Please?” “I don’t know, Mr. Macken…Sam, I really do have a lot to do around here.” “You should go, Kate,” Carly said. “It will be good for you. You need a break and it will be good for you to spend time with someone other than me or Daniel.” “I like spending time with you and Daniel.” But Kate knew her protests would do no good. She sighed and nodded her assent. A huge grin spread across Sam’s face as he said, “You go get cleaned up and I’ll saddle your horse for you.”

“Everything about you matters to me, Kate. I want to know everything about you. What you think, what you feel, your likes and dislikes. I want to know you, Kate.” He pulled her into his arms and bent his head down to kiss her. She stiffened in his arms and pushed him away. “I’m sorry, Sam. I’m afraid I’ve given you the wrong impression. I’m not interested in that kind of a relationship, in any kind of a relationship, for that matter. I shouldn’t have come out here with you. I think it’s best if I go home.” “No, please Kate, stay. I’m the one who moved too fast. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to upset you. It’s just that you’re so beautiful and I’m attracted to you and it just seems so natural to hold you in my arms. And yes, I would very much like to kiss you. But if you’re not ready yet, I’ll wait.” “I won’t ever be ready, Sam. You should know that up front. I meant it when I said that I don’t want a relationship with anyone. So, if that’s what you are looking for, you’ve got the wrong girl.”
Kristine Raymond, Here to Stay

“He wrapped his arms tightly around her and then she fell apart, sobbing and trembling, her head on his chest. He held her until the tremors stopped and then he kissed her forehead. She lifted her head and looked at him, tears streaking her face. He held her face in his hands and ran his thumbs over her cheeks, wiping the tears away. “Are you okay? Are you hurt?” he asked softly. “I’m okay. Th-thank you. I’m sorry I fell apart on you.” “That’s what I’m here for. I’m always here for you, Kate.”
