More Back List Books!

Yes, the back list titles seem to be unending, no?  Not quite but there are quite a few to go yet. Moving forward in my earlier releases, I have reached #7, To Protect and ...Seduce? Yes, it is a 'cop' story and in a subtle way pays tribute to the cop next door in my personal world who became my life partner for thirty-two great years and the little girl who still calls me her "wicked step mother" with a big grin, even though she has a couple of grown daughters now herself. This tale was an EPIC finalist in its category in the year it was released, 2006.

Here is the blurb sand cover for this tale, one of my personal favorites.
With her young son, Amy has fled an abusive relationship. The thought that her ex and his crime-focused family will find her, terrifies her. A remote mining town in Arizona provides temporary refuge. Then she learns her next door neighbor is a cop, and what a cop! He’s a gorgeous single father. But back home most of the police officers were in the Stavros family’s pockets. Will Arizona cops be different enough to trust?
Jack is struggling to raise his motherless daughter and uphold the law in Azurite, Arizona. His new neighbor stirs his libido but she seems to have some fearsome secrets as well as a son about his daughter’s age. When the children form a friendship, Jack and Amy's worlds begin to converge. Can he put an end to her nightmare and also be the man she needs?

Now, stepping backward on my more recent releases, here is another 2014 release. This story has a humorous beginning. A group of Amber Quill authors were working on some feline shapeshifter tales. I was reluctant to take part using the excuse that I am allergic to cats and really do not know a lot about them. Then like a persist itch, I began to picture a hero who worked in a zoo and although allergic to the feline clan was drawn to and worked with them... As often happens, my characters in this story really threw me some curves as they began to share their tale so I could transcribe it! And so, Catastrophe was born!

Here is the blurb and cover for this story. 
Although veterinary technician Carlton is violently allergic to cats, he loves them with an undying passion, enough to tolerate miserable symptoms to keep working with the felines in the San Maribal Zoo. The cheetahs especially fascinate him. Then he meets a mysterious stranger who is evasive about why he’s in the zoo after hours, and nude! This man tells Carl there’s a cat inside him wanting to get out. That sounds really crazy, and the suggested way to make the shift happen sounds even crazier—but exciting.
Zyl is a member of the ancient shifter tribe, or Were-Kind. His people are working to enforce humane treatment of animals and save endangered species. Hearing of a planned raid by an extreme animal rights group to free the denizens of zoos, they realize this will be a catastrophe. Joining forces with regular humans to avert the problem will mean “coming out” as the powerful beings they are. Again, a potential disaster. Attracted against his better judgment, Zyl teams up with the cat lover he met under awkward circumstances only to discover a valuable ally and a soul mate...
