Good Morning Kayden!

I am BEYOND EXCITED to share my new release CHARM ME, a Candy Hearts Romance from The Wild Rose Press.  perf5.000x8.000.indd

It’s a paranormal romance set in Colorado Springs and in the mountain town of Divide, Colorado. It’s got a sexy witch with a dark secret, her protective canine companion, and a dreamy hot retired Navy SEAL ready, willing and able to help overcome her fears! I can’t wait for you to read it! It’s up for Pre-order today with an official release of January 6, 2016.

From Charm Me, Devlin Sawyer and Summer Dawn Riley have joined us for a few minutes to give us a little insight into their situati0n.

“Devlin, have a seat and tell us a little about yourself.” Author said.

After Summer settles on the couch, Devlin eases down next to her, clears his throat and shifts uneasily in his seat.

“I spent 19 years, 7 months in service to my country as a Navy SEAL, which left room for nothing else in my life. It’s a tough life, but I loved it. Eventually, it was time to take my life in a different direction. I retired, bought a gun club in need of repairs, and turned it into a state of the art facility giving special discounts to law enforcement and the military. Because I felt there was a need, I added women’s weapons classes and the rest is history.” With a twinkle in his eye he smiled at Summer and slipped his arm around her shoulders.

“How about you, Summer?” Author asked.

“Not much to tell. Magic played a part in alienating me from my family. I swore off magic, moved cross-country where no one knew me and took a job as a yoga instructor. Piper, my dog and I were perfectly happy, until he barged into our life, flirting outrageously and showing up unannounced at Earthbound Yoga. Then he tried to disguise his magic signature.”

“Hey now wait just a minute. I’m not the one who nearly seared off my clothes with her steamy looks on our first meeting. Nor was it me that….”

“Me… I’m not the one that leaned into me, wrapped his arms around me while pretending to demonstrate how to hold a gun properly. As I remember, you had to back away to hide quite a rise after that.” Summer snickered.

He snorted “I merely corrected your grip and moved out of the way so you could try again.”

“Okay, that’s enough. Charm me is a romance, you’re supposed to be helping me sell it.”

“Don’t blame us, you wrote it.” Devlin shrugged and nuzzled Summer’s neck.

She snuggled against Devlin and looked coyly at the author. “Why don’t you just let them read the blurb and excerpt, that way we don’t give anything away.


Blurb: Summer Dawn Riley’s an extraordinary elemental witch whose troubled past haunts her. She’s created a calm life for herself teaching yoga and keeping people at a distance. Her life takes a one eighty degree turn when she enrolls in a women’s weapons class and meets ruggedly handsome Devlin Sawyer.

Devlin, a former Navy Seal, has sworn off women after two long-term failed relationships, but there is no denying his attraction to Summer. She intrigues him like no other woman ever has. Despite her attempts to ignore him, Summer is drawn to Devlin. His magic signature is strong, but he’s no warlock. Will Valentine’s Day magic find them a future together?


Getting to her feet, she brushed the dust from her black yoga pants, tugged at the bottom of her bright orange tunic, and flipped the light switch on. A soft glow of florescent lighting flooded the large room, soothing Summer’s nerves. Guess she would never be the same carefree individual she was before the incident. Oh, shake it off. You’re safe and it’s time to get on with life. “Come on Pip, let’s get this place open.”

A massive stone fireplace towered in the corner. She picked up an arm full of wood and flung it in the general direction. Logs landed in the fire pit and neatly arranged themselves in a tepee shape. With a magic flick of her finger toward the hearth, flames raced up the aspen logs. “That’s better.”

She raised her arms, about to send the yoga mats back to their proper place when the heavy wooden front door creaked open. Piper rushed toward the door, teeth bared and a growl rumbled in her throat. Summer whirled around and yelped as Devlin ambled into the room, black hair tousled and glistening with melting snowflakes. His nonchalance at the dog’s approach surprised her as he slowed to a stop. Piper sniffed around him, backed up a few inches, then stood at alert in front of Devlin.

“You scared the bejeebers out of me.” Summer held her hand to her chest as her heart thundered.

“What are you doing here?”

“Call your guard dog off and I’ll tell you.” The corners of Devlin’s mouth curved up into a smile, a faint light twinkled in the depths of his dark eyes.

“Piper, leave it…come.” The dog gave Devlin a last sideways glance, trotted back to Summer and sat at her side.

    • Yes, due to being out of country on ops, he was unable to get home before his mother passed away, barely made it for her funeral. He’d spent his life protecting this country, when his was up, he opted to take another direction and retired.
