Only One Man Will Do in the Minnesota Romances series
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): A very steamy R-rating. No children allowed!
This is an MC story, but here the female rides the Harley. Tough-as-nails businesswoman on weekdays, Alexandra is a biker queen on weekends. She’s never been satisfied with just one man, enjoying all of the men she “hand-picked” for her gang. When a large Russian man inserts himself into her life, she follows her instincts to some explosive sex. Ex-KGB agent Dmitri has been wandering across the USA for years. When the woman he’s sent to deliver an ultimatum to turns out to be his favorite fantasy come true, he decides to try to convince her that he can be all the man she needs. But he’s not willing to share her with her gang, and she’s not willing to give up other men. What starts as a fling gets serious quickly, before it turns deadly. When two of her bikers are killed, Dmitri is the main suspect. How far is he willing to go to keep her to himself? And has she really fallen in love for the first time ever…with a murderer?

Their favorite indie director, Jared Sorenson, assigns his cousin, Veronica Sorrenson, to “babysit” Raul to keep him out of trouble. Ivan Trachenko owns a resort in the same area as their Gram-Marie. His cousin Dmitri gets sent to warn those who want to enable Raul in his addictions, to stay away from him. And Kelly’s mom Stella, is a retired CIA agent. Once they appear in the series, they often turn up in subsequent books.

What did you like best about writing this series?
I love to go camping up in Grand Marais, Minnesota. It’s a beautiful small town on the shore of Lake Superior, with a thriving arts community. Drive up the Gunflint Trail and you’ll find resorts, campgrounds, and many lakes designed to let you reconnect with nature. I got the idea for the first book one summer when I was sad about leaving. I imagined falling in love with a local person, so you’d have a reason to move there. Writing these books lets me pretend I’m still up there. Plus I’ve grown very fond of the people in these books.
What other books (not in this series, have you written?)
2 Female Spies books: Secret Lover, and Undercover Lovers.
A paranormal vampire romance saga: Prophecy of the Mayan Undead
2 paranormal werewolf books: When a Wolf Howls, and Worth the Wait
6 books in The Reyes Family Romances series: Never Too Old for the Game of Love, Recipe For Love, Love by Design, Prescription For Love (free download), Analysis of Love, and Love Therapy.

I have always had characters intruding into my thoughts, showing scenes from their lives. When I ignore them, they start to yell louder. If I write their stories so they can live in readers’ heads as well, they usually leave me alone. Soon the next voices appear. I like the noise. I write romances that involve strong, independent women who enjoy casual flings, but are not looking to fall in love. Enter the man who feels the same way–until they both realize this is different. I love the passion of new love!
I keep busy with multiple jobs, and have to squeeze in writing when I should be sleeping. As often as possible, I go out with my family, or just my husband, to view the night stars around a campfire. Stories present themselves to me while driving, while dreaming, and especially while camping.
I write romances that involve strong, independent women who don’t mind casual flings, but who are not looking to fall in love. Enter the man who decides this is the woman for him. I thinks that how they ultimately both realize that they have found the one, is the most interesting part of a romance.
