Frequently Asked Questions

Do your books need to be read in order?

No. Each of my books can be read as a stand alone romance.  However, for the books in series, characters in previous books will appear in later stories and there may be some spoilers if they are not read in order.  Recommended reading order can be found at the Reader Guide.

Will there be more Pine Hollow books coming?

Yes!  Look for more adorable pooches and happily ever afters coming soon – including Pride & Puppies, featuring Charlotte Rodriguez, coming Fall 2022!

Is there sex/spicy language in your books?

It depends on the book.  A Royal Christmas Wish, as a Hallmark release, features no sex or strong language.  The Pine Hollow series is also on the sweeter side, but may have the occasional use of saltier language and sexy times happening off the page.  Other books may have open-door sex scenes and strong language, but they are not explicit – generally I would consider their heat level “sensual” rather than erotic.

The heat levels noted on the BOOKS page are defined as follows:

HALLMARK SWEET – No swearing, sex or overly mature situations.  Appropriate for all audiences.  (A Royal Christmas Wish, Sweeter than Chocolate)
CLOSED DOOR – There will likely be swearing and mature situations.  Any actual sex scenes will occur off-the-page/cut to the next day, but sexual attraction may clearly be a part of the story.  (The Twelve Dogs of Christmas, Yours For Christmas series)
OPEN DOOR/SENSUAL – There will likely be swearing (which may be explicit) and mature situations, and sex scenes will be fully described/happening on the page.  (The Bouquet Catchers series)
