On June 23rd, I'm releasing LAST FIRST KISS, the first in the Brightwater series (contemporary romance). The series will have several installments but can be read as stand alones or out of order. Last First Kiss is second chance at love story featuring a swoony sheriff (who's, ahem, good with his hands), a single mom and a hundred-year-old family feud :)(less)

“When a woman reads a romance novel, she is putting her own pleasure first. That small act of rebellion is perceived as a threat to the status quo. It’s also why this eternally popular and profitable genre has been scorned, ridiculed and dismissed.”
Maya Rodale
