Dear Reader,

When I Found You, the third book in my K-9 trilogy, is now available for purchase.

Here is a little information about When I Found You.

Is she part of the solution…or the problem? 

It could be a terrorist threat. Or is it some other sinister plot? An unprecedented rash of security breaches at San Diego's international airport is putting passengers at risk and bringing the competence of the airport's chief of security, Ariana Atkins, into question. With explosives the weapon of choice, police K-9 unit captain Logan O'Connor and his bomb detection dog, Boomer, might be Ariana's best, if not only, line of defense. Logan is certain his belief in Ariana, and his growing love for her, aren't misplaced…but it wouldn't be the first time he's misjudged someone's intentions.

                     You can purchase When I Found You at:

Amazon ~ Barnes & Noble ~ iTunes ~ Harlequin

Also available now for preorder is A Heartwarming Thanksgiving, an anthology of thirteen Thanksgiving-themed short stories, including my story, The Firefighter's Promise.
