The Unlikely Santa   


In the retail business, Christmas isn’t a holiday, it’s an endurance contest – and as manager of the Tyler-Royale department store in a major Chicago shopping mall, Brandi Ogilvie knows that surviving December will be a challenge. Merchandise is going astray and her staff is decimated by flu, but at least Brandi has a full roster of Santas. Then Zack Forrest shows up in her store, insisting he’s the perfect candidate to fill Santa’s red velvet suit.

Brandi’s new Santa is too tall, too lean, too dark, and way too sexy for the role. But he’s enough to make a jaded department store manager think twice about what she’d like to find under her tree on Christmas morning – if only she wasn’t so certain that Zack is hiding something.

Return to Amberley

When her girlhood crush blossomed into marriage, Andie believed in a rosy future with the man of her dreams – until Todd's betrayal sent her from the beauty of Minnesota's winters to Atlanta to begin anew. But just a few months later, Todd walks back into Andie’s life – asking for her help. The stone quarry they jointly inherited is for sale, and a good price would secure the future for both of them – paying Andie’s tuition and buying freedom for Todd to concentrate on his sculpture. They need to sell now, but the prospective buyer believes he can pick up the quarry at a discount while Todd and Andie fight through a divorce. Todd wants Andie to rejoin him at the family home, Amberley, and put a false face on their failing marriage to convince the buyer and sell the quarry. But is Andie risking her heart if she returns to Amberley?

Promise Me Tomorrow

When rising reporter Cassidy Adams is assigned to go after a story on building tycoon Reid Cavanaugh, she’d rather run away than confront him again – if only that was an option. Five years before, Cassidy was a down-on-her-luck college student when Reid offered to rescue her, giving her baby a name and Cassidy a fresh start. But when her pregnancy ended, Cassidy was afraid to face Reid – or her feelings – so she disappeared. When they meet again, the flames of their past are rekindled – and now the fires of passion burn hotter yet.

Writing Between the Sexes

Men and women think, talk, and act differently -- which causes problems for writers who are trying to create characters of the opposite sex. When we understand the difference between masculine and feminine qualities and habits, we can use those behaviors and patterns to create characters who are plausible and unique, but not stereotypical. Writing Between the Sexes will help you to identify your own gender-specific behaviors, notice those of the opposite sex, and use both to make your characters realistic and believable.
