Romantic Therapy

Congratulations to "Jo-Anne" and "Bn100", the winners in Siera's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

Thank you for hosting me at Just Contemporary Romance. 

Romance novels are more than entertainment to me, they are my chosen form of therapy. There’s a part of me that believes every woman wants some form of consuming love in her life. If I had the power to grant passion filled lives to all the wonderfully made women of the world, I would. Unfortunately, the real world is impervious to my brand of super powers, but in the fantasy world of romantic fiction my pen is magical. I pour all the angst, hurt and disappointments of life into my characters. Then I throw in the moments that take your breath away, all the small victories, and the life changing decisions, and I make them heroes and heroines that we all can love. 

The balance between love and hate is constantly tested in romance novels. The journey of taking an initially hard to love character and slowly revealing the complexity of their personality, and then moving toward empathy and acceptance is cathartic. The growth from selfishness to selflessness is thrilling every time for me. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone took the time to really know your uniqueness as a individual? And more importantly, celebrate and appreciate your value to the world. 

In Chasing Ava, Ava Walter’s is fighting for more than her dream, she’s fighting to regain her voice in a world that has left her scarred inside and out. 


Ava Walters is a pediatric nurse who doesn't do relationships. An abusive past has left her wounded, but she is determined to pursue her dream of becoming a Navy Nurse. Ava is in the midst of rebuilding her life when she is targeted by a sexual harasser who wields the power to destroy her dream before it sets sail. 

Logan Masters, is an ambitious specialty surgeon whose past is riddled with betrayal. His trust in women is conditional - no secrets and no boundaries. When he comes to Ava's rescue, there is no denying the spark of attraction. Things get complicated when Logan pursues Ava, rather than the arranged relationship that holds the key to his future. 

After years of being alone Ava starts to believe that love is possible under Logan’s skillful touch. But Ava is harboring a secret she doesn’t want exposed. Determined to guard her heart, Ava soon discovers Logan is as focused on winning her heart as she is at shielding it. 

When secrets and broken alliances threaten to torpedo both their futures, how will they learn to trust each other and chart a new course to lasting love?

    2. Thanks for stopping by, Colleen. Logan's character stirred the green eyed monster in my husband. He asked more than once,"are you sure Logan's isn't your fantasy man?" My reply," honey, you read the book. Logan is Ava's man." :D
