Synopsis | Teaser | The Series | About the Author | Giveaway & Tour Stops


In The SEAL's Angel, Navy SEAL Sean MacKay's teammate is murdered after stealing a deadly nerve-gas formula from Syrian terrorists. Naval Intelligence believes MacKay's teammate was a traitor and shipped the stolen formula to his sister in the states for safekeeping. MacKay is given orders to find the sister before the terrorists do and to retrieve the stolen formula at all costs.

Foreclosure looms for Cory Rigatero as she fights to keep her rustic resort near Mt. St. Helens afloat after her brother deserted her to join the SEAL Teams. Cory's whole world dives into a tailspin when Sean MacKay shows up at her resort with the news of her brother's death and the wild suspicion her brother may have sent her traitorous classified documents. No way will Cory trust MacKay -- the man who once seduced her and then vanished into the night without a trace.

Teaser: Excerpt

Her assailant wrestled her further into the cabin. Cory fought with everything she had until she spied Vern sprawled on the floor behind her desk. She gasped into the cloth and ceased her struggling. Was Vern dead? Rage welled up, and she redoubled her efforts to break free, breathing heavily now. A wave of dizziness swamped her and made it hard to connect with her punches and kicks. Must be drugs in the cloth.

"Be still," her assailant growled. His fetid breath washed over her cheek.

Dear Lord, it was him! The Syrian who'd attacked her in her bedroom.

She jerked her head fiercely to get free of the tainted cloth, feeling weaker with each attempt. The sound of shattering glass penetrated the haze trying to settle over her mind. A spine-tingling snarl echoed close by.

Cory cried out beneath the cloth, but her movements grew labored. A loud wail erupted near her head, and the cloth fell away from her face. She greedily sucked in gulps of fresh oxygen as the sound of shrieks and snarls mixed together in the close quarters of the cabin. She tried to shake off the muddled haze as her assailant wrestled a dark form on the floor.


The front window was non-existent save for a few jagged pieces of glass still clinging to the frame. Garth had her assailant on the floor, his jaws shaking the man's arm side to side. She looked around for a weapon. She had to help Garth.

Man and dog wrestled across the floor. Vern suddenly groaned, and Cory flew to his side. As she tried to roll him over, she felt the thirty-eight lodged in his back waistband. She snatched the gun and reared up right as Garth yelped from a kick to his ribs. The assailant broke free of the Lab and spied Cory aiming the gun.

The Series: Mystery Angel Romances

Petie explains: "The cast of characters are different for each stand-alone love story, but the novels are similar in that an angel has been hidden within each plot. The angel's identity is not officially revealed until the finale unless the reader figures it out first.
[...] I can promise there will be [a fourth] Mystery Angel Romance, maybe with one of the SEALs returning from The SEAL's Angel"

No Going Back [1]

No Going Back is a 2014 EPIC eBook Award Finalist. Kellen Brand's inheritance turns out to be a whopper -- one dilapidated farm in West Virginia and one guardian angel! Since no sane woman would choose to live in Riverside, Kellen vows to sell her farm and quick. Her handsome neighbor Luke Kenyon must block the farm sale or risk exposure of his family's secrets.

Kellen has managed to locate one potential buyer, but she faces a town full of objectors. Someone is trying to frighten her off, and Luke is forced to step in and rescue her more than once. Unfortunately, Kellen has a penchant for finding trouble. She stumbles onto a clandestine hazardous-waste-dumping operation next to her farm, and she prays Luke has one more rescue up his sleeve. It's her only hope of staying alive.

Unless her mother really did leave her a guardian angel... [Published 30 March 2013, 238 pages]

Angel to the Rescue [2]

Child psychologist Rachel Kelly isn't quite sure how to handle the situation with her newest client -- a six-year-old boy who says he can talk to angels and one is coming to help Rachel. She already has her hands full of trouble this Christmas season, and things quickly take a turn for the worse when a stalker crashes Rachel's Christmas party and takes her young clients hostage.

Police negotiator, Lt. Jake Dillon, walked away from his fiancée Rachel when she suddenly balked at having kids. His kids. Yet as the hostage crisis erupts, Rachel calls Jake first. Now he has a choice to make -- stand back and wait for the cavalry to save Rachel or step in and try to save her himself. Time is running out, and Jake may be their only chance for rescue.

Unless Rachel's little angel-spying client is telling the truth… [Published 9 December 2013, 367 pages]
