Whether you're a fan of contemporary, historical, paranormal,
fantasy, straight or gay romance, you'll find something to enjoy
among my books. I hope my characters will feel like friends by
the time you've finished reading. I'm interested in flawed or
damaged, people who find the fulfillment they seek in one another.

This short story was originally contained in an anthology.
It’s intended as a free sample of my work. If the “happy
for now” ending doesn’t appeal, I suggest reading
Scarred Hearts which is similar in theme and tone and is a
full length novel.

The Novel Approach, 5 stars, Reviewer Rena
A pitch perfect historical romance ... I’ve read a good
number of Devon and Dee’s books, and it’s quite
safe to say that Mending Him, as far as I’m concerned,
is their best offering yet.
Boys in Our Books, 4 stars, Reviewer Ami
Charles — in his rakish way — saw Robbie for more

While Robbie, with his shyness and loyalty to the Chester family,
made Charles learn to be less reckless. They were really lovely
together — including during their intimate moments.
