  • The daughter of a professor and writer, I grew up surrounded by books and started writing my own stories at an early age but I also wanted to be a doctor. Unfortunately, I couldn’t stand the sight of blood or dissect the adorable rabbit in my premed lab. It was easier to shift to a different major, prepare a Ph.D. in Chemistry and dedicate myself to a career in environmental clean-up.


    An early retirement allowed me to pursue my dream of writing romance novels and work on my first book, TO LOVE A HERO. Over the years, I visited over fifty countries and took careful notes of the local customs and various cultures. FRENCH PERIL, a romantic suspense , was followed by RIGHT NAME, WRONG MAN, both set in the historical Loire Valley.

    I never forgot the medical dream of my youth and indulged in creating gorgeous doctors and handsome specialists for my medical romances. BABIES IN THE BARGAIN was followed by the series DOCTOR’S ORDER, where the heroines are American career women, and the alpha heroes handsome foreigners.

    Rx FOR TRUST was the first medical romance of the Doctor’s Order series, released by The Wild Rose Press. The story’s theme followed a famous phrase by Walter Scott: “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” Walter Scott.

    Three years later I took back my author’s rights and republished the story under a different name: NO MORE LIES.

    Excerpt:
    Luc frowned as Olivia bolted off the bench. “Mom, don’t tell me how to handle my daughter. Put her on again.”
    Olivia had a daughter?
    Ten years was a long period to be alone. But she wasn’t wearing a ring. Neither she nor McMillan had mentioned a present husband, fiancé or boyfriend. And she hadn’t said a word about this daughter all day long. Still she could have had a child anytime after he’d left. But why had she kept her a secret from him?
    He scowled as he trudged through the grass surrounding the pond, his breathing labored, blood pounding against his forehead. “Olivia.”
    As she turned toward him, she mumbled a quick, “Bye, Mom,” and then shoved her cell phone into her purse. “Luc, what are you doing here?” She bent to retrieve her high-heeled shoes from under the stone bench and slipped them on while he dumped the bottle, bucket of ice and glasses on the bench.
    “Ah.” Merde. One of the glasses had shattered on the stone. Mumbling a string of curses, he collected the broken pieces and threw them into the ice bucket.
    Why had she not told him she had a daughter? Is it possible that Melissa is...?
    His jaws tensed. “Olivia, how old is your daughter?”
    Lies by omission had cost him a child. Pain spiked through his heart at the thought of his little Paul and the lying bitch, the salope, who’d kept his son hidden from him for two years.
    Was the nightmare of his past slithering around him again?
    Luc resolutely took the last step separating him from Olivia. He wouldn’t allow her to knock his structured world out of control the way another woman had, years ago.
    “You’ve been eavesdropping? How dare you?” Her chin lifted, and she scowled.
    The memory of a pale toddler still scorched his heart after so many years. He was inflexible when it came to secrets and lies.
    Dis-moi. Tell me the truth. How old? Is she mine?” How could she have hidden this from him? She was no better than Brigitte. Were all women fickle liars?
    Mon Dieu, not his Olivia. He grabbed her shoulders with more strength than he intended to.

    1. This is a fabulous story. So romantic. I love second-chance-at-love stories. I'm not at all surprised it's #1 in contemporary romance.
