FICTION, from gentle to not. Romance, from HEA to not-quite.

Step right in! From gently humorous love affairs to bloody, graphic dust-ups, there’s a Shayla McBride novel or novella for you. Check out the Pages where you’ll have access to all of them. Anecdotes, out-takes, short stories, emerging characters, musings on the process…and recipes.

Like to skip the graphic and read sweet-ish? Go for the Marshmallow Queen Series starring confectionierre Fran Marshall and dog-loving Django Harte. The first volume, a full-length novel, is HARTE’S DESIRE.

Prefer your fiction hard-hitting? Check out Kyle Branson, former U. S. Army helicopter pilot turned private security agent, whose first assignment, SONORA HEAT, takes him to a bizarre, near-death experience. Or meetCarl Tanner, an edgy Omega Team operative (available only in Kindle World). His steamy, first no-holds-barred novella is IT COULD BE FUN.

So many books! So many possibilities! How to keep track?

Every series has its own Page (see top of Home Page).
