Carter Bear Den is a proud Apache of the Turquoise Canyon Reservation. The former US Marine is a member of the Turquoise Guardians working to protect his people and their land. When he discovers a grisly mass shooting at the Lilac Copper Mine, Carter’s one thought is to find Amber Kitcheyan.

After breaking her engagement to Carter and relinquishing her membership with the reservation, Amber found work at the mine. Now she is the sole survivor of the shooting—at best a witness, at worst a suspect. But Carter swears to protect the only woman he has ever loved, even if it means losing everything else.


I write gritty, intense romantic suspense featuring strong women and tough men. Folks describe my stories as riveting, original, captivating and “flat-out good.” I call them riveting romantic suspense. My newest story from Harlequin Intrigue arrives in January 2017 as the bestselling APACHE PROTECTORS series continues with TURQUOISE GUARDIAN #1, EAGLE WARRIOR #2, FIREWOLF #3 and THE WARRIOR’S WAY #4.
