I’m Marissa Garner. I’m a wife, writer, chocoholic, and animal lover, not necessarily in that order. As a little girl, I cut pictures of people out of my mother’s magazines and turned them into characters in my simple stories. Now I write sexy paranormal romantic suspense, steamy contemporary romance, and edgy romantic thrillers. I live in sunny Southern California with my husband, but enjoy traveling from Athens to Anchorage to Acapulco and to many locations in between.

I write romance to titillate your mind as well as your libido. My stories appeal to romance readers who:

•Choose French Silk over vanilla

•Don’t always color inside the lines and don’t like being told no

•Think some rules are made to be broken

•Have the courage to push the envel

I related to the heroine who was the victim of the mean girls. This was probably because I was a Marine brat whose family moved every two years, and I always felt like the outsider at school.(less)

Hi May,
I'm so flattered that you took the time to ask me a question. Thank you. You made my day. I love to talk about my current books and plans for future books. Remember, all my books are stand-alone stories, so you don't have to read them in order, although I do think readers feel closer to all the characters if they start at the beginning. In the FBI Heat series, I already have the plot and characters for a fourth book, tentatively titled HIJACKED. In the Rogue Security series, a fourth book called COSTLY CORRUPTION is marinating in my brain when I should be sleeping. I will probably self-publish these because it takes soooo long to get books published by traditional publishers (like my current six books). I wish I could give you a possible release date for these, but I just don't know yet. Next up, of course, is ONLY OBSESSION, third in the Rogue series. I also have a completed romantic thriller with paranormal elements (FORBIDDEN LOVE), which I'm hoping to publish before the end of the year. This is probably way more than you wanted to know, but I do LOVE to talk books. I hope you'll try a few of mine. Happy reading! (less)

Short but jam-packed with good stuff, these two western romance novellas are guaranteed to brighten your day. The likeable characters and heart-warming plots will make you wish for more stories from Redemption, Texas. Highly recommend.
