This month (actually released Dec.
17, 2013) I started my first series,
Sweet Springs, Texas,
launched as a Harlequin Special Edition. Book I is
THE DASHING DOC NEXT DOOR,
and Book II is GROOMED FOR LOVE.

Although I lost Robert, my beloved husband of 31 years
in 2006, I remain in East Texas with four rescued dogs.
We're just on 1-1/2 acres now, instead of Crooked Pine
Ranch, but that's a good fit for us. We lost brave and
loving Louie due to hernia complications this year, but
someone else's "throw-away" arrived by autumn. Ben is
working on his 17th year, which is ancient for a dog.
Pete is 12 this month, Meg 5-1/2, and newcomer Roxie is
somewhere between 8 months and a year old. Meg suffered
deep depression upon losing her BFF Louie, but she's
rebounding with her new BFF Roxie. Miss Energizer Bunny
is also helping her lose unwanted extra pounds, too!
When I'm not gearing up for some DIY project (I love
REHAB ADDICT and
PROPERTY BROTHERS!), communing with the flora and
fauna, or fighting the elements and critters attacking
my vegetable garden, my interests continue to be
politics, astrology, and catching up with true and
long-term friends. Frankly, I have more interests than
time, and I don't understand anyone who says, "I'm
bored." If you're looking for insight into your coming
year, I respectfully recommend Susan Miller's
ASTROLOGY ZONE. I also find Chinese astrology
equally intriguing. That said, February will begin the
Chinese Year of the Wood Horse. The last wood horse was
in 1954. Google
2014 Chinese New Year for more information. One
clue: while change was painful and slow in 2013 with the
water snake, momentum is about to accelerate.
Finally, enough of you keep asking me to do a newsletter
or blog to where I promise to look into that. In the
meantime, you can contact me
via this website, or find me on
Helen Myers. Thanks again for your
support, and know that I'm wishing you and yours a
GROOMED FOR LOVE

Sweet Springs, Texas
Fate forced Rylie Quinn to give up her dream
to become a veterinarian, she fulfilled her
plan to work with animals by becoming a dog
groomer. But her worst client is no dog
lover. Deputy DA of Cherokee County Noah
Prescott detests delivering his mother's
adorable Bichon Frise to the Sweet Springs
Animal Clinic almost as much as the
eternally sunny Rylie grates on his nerves.
Then he discovers she is too good to be
true--there's a warrant out for her arrest
Rylie knew she couldn't keep her tragedy a
secret forever, but she's deeply hurt by the
unnecessary embarrassment Noah causes her as
he exposes her career-altering predicament.
With no small chagrin, Noah tries to make
amends, but to no avail. Rylie wants nothing
to do with him. However, there's a good
reason for him to keep striving to win her
forgiveness--he's fallen hard for this young
woman of courage and fortitude.

Sweet Springs, Texas!
Welcome to Central East Texas and the fictitious
town in what really is Cherokee County. In a triangle
between Dallas, Texarkana, and Houston, we're not far
from Tyler, the Rose Capital of the World, and Kilgore's
Oil Museum. It's still piney woods country, and gorgeous
ranch country. It's small-town America where people
still wave to each other as they drive by, and you don't
need to know Kevin Bacon to figure out there are only a
few degrees of separation between one person and
