"In typical romantic suspense style, it’s the suspense that keeps these characters apart more than their own choice. However, where sometimes the suspense seems overdramatized with its only purpose to keep the characters apart, that’s not the care here: the suspense feels very real..." ~ InD'tale Magazine on Taming the Texas Beauty

"I'm pleased when a book captures me early and keeps my attention until the end and Up Close and Personal certainly did that. There are multiple plot lines to follow and enough action that kept me from wanting to put this book down!" ~ Room With Books on Up Close and Personal

"Texas Two Step is a swirl of wounded relationships, tempestuous love, and spinning plot lines. The author does a terrific job starting things off with a bang and expertly keeping that heady pace through to the end." ~ InD'tale Magazine on Texas Two Step

"This sweet love story's focus is on family and relationships. The bond between the families and long time, small town friends is very refreshing." ~ InD'tale Magazine on Rescue Me

"This tautly woven story builds to a fever pitch as Vitek sorts out the good guys from the bad."

The Romance Reviews

March 2017


​​​I guess you could say my writing world for March is coming in like a lion. I’ve signed a contract for the first two books in the Seasons of Change Series. The first book, Autumn’s story, is scheduled for May/June 2018. The second book, Vinter’s story, is scheduled for November/December 2018.

Autumn Reynolds’s marriage is struggling, while her sister Spring is going through a divorce, something Autumn doesn't want to see happen with her marriage. Autumn will eventually end up at the family's cabin where she and her husband, Carter, will work through their issues.

As an EMT, Vinter Johansen sees a lot of tragic accidents, but it's the snowmobile accident of his youth that haunts his memories. While visiting the family cabin with friends, he must overcome his fear to help Meredith Grimm who’s in need of medical attention.

Peanut Butter Kisses in the Food and Romance Go Together Vol. 1 anthology is now scheduled to release April/May. You can see the cover for the anthology
HERE. A recipe is shared after each of the short stories, and they all look yummy. I’m excited to share the new cover for Florida Heat. The Texas Girlfriends Series is now a complete set with matching covers.

On the personal side, we’re in the final stretch to my daughter’s graduation. Prom comes first and the dress has been purchased and altered. Graduation invitations have been ordered, and the party date is set. Ah, college. We’re acting on tasks as they come along: filling out forms, making payments, and whatever else needs to be done prior to the many deadlines.

Who’s up for a crazy busy summer? I am!

Thank you for visiting, and feel free to poke around my site.
