Meet the Author

I think I'm like a lot of my readers, I'm married, got a kid, a house, I sew clothes, and I write contemporary romance novels in my (cough) spare time. Oh, you don't do that?

It started in high school, I wrote a serial romance novel in a black and white composition book one chapter at a time. As each chapter got finished the book would get passed around to all my friends. They loved it and couldn't get enough. Except one of them left it behind after class one day and the only name on it was mine. I ended up in the Vice-principal's office trying to explain that it was fiction. In his defense, it was written as a journal. He couldn't believe I could know that much about sex and relationships if I hadn't done any of that. I told him he needed to watch more TV.

After years of stumbling around in more jobs than any other two people I know, I'm back to writing and loving it! I recently quit my day job to write full-time. Scary! Thrilling!! I am more difficult to work for than my old boss. Who knew?

I write for women looking to inject some contemporary romance into their busy lives. To that end my work tends to clock in at about 40- 50 thousand words or about 200+ pages. Short enough that you can read it in between everything else you do but long enough that I can develop the characters a little.

Reviews are crucial for a self-published writer so if you review one of my books on the site you got it from send me the link. As a thank you for taking your time I'll send you the full cover art from that book. You can have your own collection!

Be sure to check out my blog (Thoughts) for information you can use to be Smart, Sexy, and Fun, along with the latest going on in my world.

I love to hear from my readers so feel free to drop me a note. I try to write back as quickly as possible.

    Good story

    I liked this story. This was about a girl with a back injury falling in love with her surgeon. The story got even better when they finally got together. I could have done without the dom/sub aspect but since it was only mentioned briefly it was ok.

    Not a fan of submission

    I love to read romance books but I dislike romance books that have submission an domination in them it destroys the book for me. But it would be a good book if it didnt have that in it.

    Creepy

    The only good thing about this book is the unusual choice of having a character wheelchair bound (hence the 2 stars). It goes downhill after that.
    The main male is a surgeon, quickly attracted to a new patient. He does major back surgery on her and visits her room the first night to "comfort" her. While she is on a morphine pump he kisses her. He visits her room again when she is off the morphine and does "everything but" resulting in her big "O". Oops, she just had back surgery so that doesn't work out so well. Sorry about that.

    More dumb things happen then you find out he wants to dominate her. If you are into that, you might like that part. I kept hoping it would get better, but the creepiness never went away.

    This is a very good read. It kept my attention until the very end, and I look forward to reading the rest of this series and more from Ms. Giroux.  

    Violet lost so much the day of the accident that she does not let herself get close to anyone. Having chronic back pain she seeks out the best surgeon for a consult. She never expected that meeting Dr. Michael Dennison would open her heart and make her desire him so much that she would do anything to have him love her. But he has always thought he’d live his life alone, so he’s not sure how to handle Violet’s affections. Can they put the past behind them for a possible future together?
