All my books are novels for adults with romance as their primary theme but exploring other aspects of life from history to fantasy with people sometimes caught in dangerous situations who must find their way to a safe landing. Some are connected books, with continuing characters-- where a secondary character might show up in a new book as a hero/heroine. Each book stands alone with no cliff hangers.

Because mine vary for the 'heat' level, I devised this chart. If you find a book that interests you, look for the hearts. Some books with strong language or mild profanity.

♥ ------holding hands, perhaps a gentle kiss
♥♥ ---- more kisses but no tongue-- no foreplay
♥♥♥ ---kissing, tongue, caressing, foreplay & pillow talk
♥♥♥♥ --all of above, full sexual experience including climax
♥♥♥♥♥ -all of above including coarser language and sex more frequent

Evening Star


A contemporary O'Brian story involving Randy, Rachel's cousin from the book 'Desert Inferno.' These characters are also in 'Bannister's Way,' which takes place a few years after this story.

Most of us have guiding principles or even someone in our life who has been a marker for us as to how life should be lived. We have higher aspirations where we are reaching out toward something more than we currently have. It's a bit of human nature.

Marla Jamison doesn't think that way. She works hard as an assistant DA in Portland, Oregon. She has goals but they relate to her latest case, not her personal life. 

Best laid plans and all that when she meets Randy O'Brian, part cowboy and part police officer. Randy has come to Portland for more than walking a beat. Marla wasn't in his plan... but for a man like him-- when you want something, you go after it. He does not give up easily even on a woman with so many barriers in place.


Evening Star  is a story of woman's story of growth forced upon her by loving the one man, who she knew she should not. It is set in Oregon moving between two worlds-- the big city to the ranching community. Marla's problem is learning to open herself to risk. Is Randy the man he claims, her own evening star, or the most dangerous distraction of her life.

Heat level: ♥♥♥♥---- some strong language & mild profanity
